Taiwanese Drama Review: Just You

Just You – a Taiwanese drama, rom-com genre.  I started this review early on in the drama when I could say with a clear conscience that cuteness and quirkiness abound.  I wanted to tell you that what  really makes this drama is primarily the actors, the main characters, and a few of the side characters [...]

K-Drama Review: Ugly Alert

 Ugly Alert: The title is explained midway through- the grand-daughter tells her grandfather that she will give him a warning when there is more ugliness ahead. It’s a daily drama, so that means what first feels like a draggy story, convoluted interruptions, lots of angsty misunderstandings and heart-ache and frustration for the viewers who are [...]

K-Drama Review: Heirs

Heirs: I think almost all K-drama fans are watching this one, or at least following recaps. It stars Lee Min Ho (Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, Faith); Kim Woo Bin (School, Gentleman’s Dignity); Park Shin Hye (You’re Beautiful, Flower Boy Next Door), and a host of other idols and actors too numerous too mention.  And this [...]

Watching Another Foreign Language Television Show

This one is called Sebastion y Catalina, and I’m watching it on Viki.com, which got the footage from youtube so it’s everything you’re imagining- jumpy, fuzzy quality, sometimes skipped scenes or repeated scenes from bad cutting.  The series is cut up into ten minute chunks to facilitate youtube’s limitations. As for the series itself, production [...]
