It’s 2014!!! And with a new year and a new month you now what that means: New Korean dramas for ALL OF US!!!!!


I gotta say, overall, I’m not as particularly hyped about these dramas as I am about the ones I’m currently watching. But there are some actors that are drawing my attention, and I’ll most definitely give their dramas a look. Or two. Or ten. Heck, maybe I’ll watch the whole thing lol.

For instance, I Need Romance 3. I have never actually watched any of the dramas in the I Need Romance series, perhaps because the title is too blatant and I never want to admit that I need some good romance. Just like I’ll never admit to watching the first Twilight movie. ..Oh wait, I did. I really did like Bang Sung Joon in Shut Up Flower Boy Band and I really wanna keep watching him in more dramas because I think he’s going to be a drama force to be reckoned with.

The other one that’s really intriguing to me is Inspiring Generation. I really like the overall idea of where they are going with it, though it seems a bit risky to do an all Korean drama in old China. But then again that’s what they are doing with Empress Ki and it’s phenomenal. Part of the reason why I’m on the fence for this one is Kim Hyun Joong. Don’t get me wrong I think he is smexy and I absolutely loved him in We Got Married. I think he’s a really cool guy. But, Personal Kiss was atrocious. He was probably the weakest out of the 3 countries in Boys Over Flowers for his character. And they cancelled his last drama after putting out a crap ton of hype about it. So I will be watching at least the first couple episodes of this one when it comes out and we’ll see where it goes from there.

    Steph can I ask you favor??? Can you go over and watch ” my love from another star ”
    I’m starting to like this drama so I want your opinion on it please. I wanna know if Korean viewers like it as much as I do.Your opinion matters to me you know.. You are an honest critic!

    It’s a funny drama for me and another reason why I like this drama because one of the line the lady actress said she got a lot of shoes like Imelda Marcos lol (Imelda is the wife of our former Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos) silly but I’m kinda proud when you hear that Korean drama mention your birth country while watching it.. Thanks!,,
