Header Spree & A Little Update


Earlier this week I had a header making request from Nelly and because I made a Doo Joon one for her, it started me on a Let's Eat and Doo Joon header making spree, which was cut short by my laptop blackscreening on me and then the charger dying completely. This meant no drama watching (I'm still not caught up on Cunning, Single Lady nor have I had a chance to finish Bride of the Century. So on the way home, on the train, from getting the laptop in spit-spot shape, and getting a new charger, I made a bunch of headers.

Why Do We Watch Korean Dramas?


Recently Entertainment Weekly posted an article about a Beginner's Guide to Korean dramas. On the list the oft recommended Boys [Preposition] Flowers (hereafter BOF) made its appearance and I facetiously commented, "I would recommend avoiding that one actually," and I instead I recommended other dramas such as Answer Me 1997. Needless to say, my distaste for BOF was not exactly appreciated, and Answer Me 1997 was deemed "too Korean", apparently because of the screeching in it (?). It got me thinking (and I voiced some things about it on Twitter) and some of the Twitterpeeps and I got to chatting. Why did we start and continue to watch drama? Why when we could tell that the drama was bad, did we continue watching? Would we watch those dramas now? What is it about Korean drama that makes it so addicting and compelling to watch?

I ❤ Choi Kang Joo: Bride of the Century Episodes 13 & 14


And the cute is back - amid plenty of angst, but it's the good kind, well some of it is at least. I've sort of decided to throw caution to the wind and ignore (for the most part) the editing and acting and stuff that gets in the way of adoring all the adorable and good things about the drama. And there are moments when I start to think that the instrumental score is rather beautiful.
