Thai Drama Review: Cubic

I have branched out and am watching a Thai ‘Lakorn,’ so not a K-drama at all.   What is Lakorn?  This one is called Cubic, and the title refers to a Rubik’s cube and is explained in the show. I’m kind of shaking my head over this one, or over myself because I keep watching.  It’s so [...]

K-Drama AND Thailand Drama Review

Full House- this is a totally different story than the American television show from the 80s featuring widowed dad, dad’s hawt bro-in-law, and their best friend raising three adorable daughters.  Not the same story at all.

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 [...]
