First Look: Princess Agents

A surprising beginning, especially considering that Viki had this one under “romantic comedy,” and I can’t imagine what they were smoking.

Finished “I’m Not a Robot”

A charming romcom that really made me laugh out loud at times. Though the premise is ludicrous, the leads are so cute together and the supporting cast is adorable, too.

End of (Itaewon) Class

itaewontop

The word that comes to mind is… annoying.

By the end I was chafing for it to be over. Once again I am stunned that this achieved such stellar ratings! It’s probably my fault. I came away from this drama with the feeling that these were all one-dimensional comic book characters when they are INDEED comic book characters so I shouldn’t be complaining. Yet I did and I do.

Finished “Story of Ming Lan”

The 73 episodes were a surprisingly easy inhale.

Also Ming Lan is A BOSS!

That ass kicking I wanted? Got it.
The character focus I was expecting? Got it.
The clever, resourceful badass little girl in the beginning of the drama who wanted justice? GOT HER BACK!

“Story of Ming Lan” — Up to Ep. 25

This is totally a Chinese “Sense and Sensibility,” with some “Pride and Prejudice” and “Northanger Abbey” thrown in. LOL. Well, not really, but it has that same sort of feel!

“Story of Ming Lan” — Up to Ep. 9

minglangirl2

May I just say how much I love this child?

This drama sure is taking its time getting started. Though the title is “Story of Ming Lan,” Ming Lan appears in maybe 10 percent of each episode, if that, and so far has no active role in any of the conflicts and crises around her.

A promising start! Not sure what it is about or where we are going, but so far a lot of it is going right for me!

Finally saw “Guardian”

guardian2
Honestly, during the time that I was on hiatus from dramas I kept hearing about this Cdrama all over the place. I always thought it would be a good one because the buzz around it seemed so high, people really seemed to love it. So when Robin recently mentioned that it was one of the dramas she had seen that had been shot at Shanghai Film Studios, I suddenly remembered that “oh yeah I should finally get around to watching that!”

How is it possible that this drama is so horribly bad???
