Arang and the Magistrate: Episodes 1-4

Arang and the Magistrate

Episode 1-4

So I watched the first four episodes of Arang and the Magistrate and I find that I am very impressed with it’s cinematographic beauty not to mention it’s quirky attitude and charming story (so-far). The vividness of the color, the sharpness in detail, the interesting angles, added to the crazy story that has actually managed to get me fully behind Arang, it’s really obvious that the director and the writer have a method to their madness because it all comes together to make it a visual delicacy.  Nom Nom, I’m eating it up with Joon Ki as the main dish!

Can Love Become Money

Episode 1

Intro

Let’s Meet our Cast:

 Yeon Jeong Hoon is Ma In Tak

Fondant Garden: Episode 1 & 2 Recap

Fondant Garden

Episode 1 & 2

Intro

I had no idea that Park Jungmin had decided to do a drama in Taiwan, so I gave it a try when I saw information about it, and it has made me giggle so much! I’m glad I decided to watch it. However I’m also worried about where it’s going on the whole “business and inheritance” issue but I’m liking the romantic side of this show. It’s fun and it’s a breezy watch! Continue reading

Main Cast: 

Li Yi Chen- You Qing

Chen Bo Lin- Li Da Ren

Intro

I’ve started watching a new drama. Before I start this recap I’ve got to confess that I don’t normally watch T-dramas. I’ve at most watched 6 as compared to the over 30 k-dramas and over 20 J-doramas. And out of those relative few T-dramas I’ve watched, 3 of them have been  Li Yi Chen’s (Ariel Lin)-ISWAK, TKA & Love or Bread. This time it’s her new drama titled In Time with You . I have to watch it, especially since they’re saying that she’ll probably retire after this. sigh. And just when I’ve been trying to get into T-dramas. Continue reading
