Go Ryeowook! Go Ryeowook! Dance like it’s yo birfday!

We’re gonna party like it’s yo birfday!

I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS PERFORMANCE.
That dancer planted her crotch on his face!
He did a strip tease!
HE’S MOVING LIKE JAGGER.

To be completely frank, I watched 90% of the performance like this:

But in all seriousness, this is one of the reasons why I really like Ryeowook, who probably doesn’t get enough love from fans and non-fans alike.

Packing

It never crossed my mind how little color I wore until I was packing. Jesus, all I have are black shirts, skirts, dresses, pants, shorts — in all different cuts and styles, but so much is black.

I have a relatively small wardrobe, but I guess certain things are repetitive because they’re just my style so I tend to buy a lot of the same things over and over again.

I also suck at packing.

Flower land in K-dramas, part 1: Ramyun Shop, episodes 3-6

Okay, so I like this drama, everything and everyone are really cute, and I’m enjoying the viewing experience, but I’ve come to the conclusion with another friend that this drama is really . . . shallow.

It’s a character-driven drama to be sure, but not really a story-driven one, and that can be somewhat problematic down the line. This is a standard 16 episodes, but at the rate that it’s going now, I’m not sure they’ll have enough story for another 10 episodes.

Here a drama, there a drama: part 1

OH EM GEE! *blows dust off ze blog* A drama post from me. Haven’t written one since September. Crazy times.

So in the time that I’ve been MIA, I’ve watched a lot of stuff, but haven’t been compelled to write about them. A new season of dramas is upon us and I’ve been keeping up with some, and I’m interested in seeing where some of them go.

And just as an FYI because people have been asking, I sorta stopped watching Protect the Boss halfway in after hearing that they were getting an extension. I stopped at episode 11 and this is one of those dramas that are REALLY hard to pick up after you drop them, because so little is going on narratively. I do plan on finishing it before the year’s over, but the mood has to be there first. Two more episodes is A LOT because this means the remainder of the story had to add another 2 hours worth of material and that’s just never, ever handled well, which is why I am in no rush to finish PtB.

I stopped Scent of a Woman after episode 13 because things got needlessly redundant? The story hit that point in an epic (and tragic) K-drama where everyone started getting really stubborn and mopey and teary and mind you, this is when I started watching J-dramas nonstop and was severely put off by the doom and gloom of it all. I’ve been itching to finish it one of these days and will probably do so sooner or later. So no spoilers please.

A round-up of the things I’m watching/I’ve checked out, after the jump, including:
– Flower Boy Ramyun Shop
– A Thousand Days’ Promise
– Man of Honor
