Are multiple personalities the new black?

Oh Kdrama and your hot themes. First it was time travel, then doctors, then noona lovers, and now, with the addition of Kill Me, Heal Me? That makes three separate upcoming dramas featuring heroes wiht multilbe personalities. The others being  Hyun Bins (and first to be announced) Hyde and Kim Soo Hyun's Dr Frankenstein. (Note Kim Soo Hyun hasn't officially signed on, he's just looking favorable on it.)

A Gaggle of noona romances you can get away with. A pack of hot doctor shows? Sure, I can buy that, we have lots of doctor shows here in the states. But multiple multiples? All within the same season? (If kdrama has seasons of course.) Wouldn't it have made at least one of the broadcasters say...uh...maybe we'll take a pass on that one? No? Well, okay then.

What A Difference A Teaser Make: Healer

Scrolling through my Instagram feed there he is again, Ji Chang Wook. He is, of course, smiling, which is good as that's ow I like him  best. But sadly, seeing his smiling face always makes me a little blue. While I loved him in Smile Dong Hae, he has yet to be in another drama I wanted to sit through. 

Well--except for Bachelors Vegetable Store. I sat through that entire pile of poo for him (and of course the other bachelors) the only reason I forgive him for those wasted hours is the fact that his part of the drama was almost really good. He can not be held responsible for the the depths of maudlin suckitude the other plots fell. 

(If you didn't catch that--don't watch Bachelors Vegetable Store--friends don't let friends watch bad kdramas.)

Crazy for Kdrama Podcast Episode 13: Kpop Wishes and Kdrama Dreams

Thirteen? Is it unlucky thirteen? We certainly hope not! In response to a voicemail, Cherry and I try to disagree more — or maybe that was just me — and just wait until you hear how many dramas I made my way through the last two weeks.


Episode 13: Kpop Wishes and Kdrama Dreams

Find it Here
Show Notes
This episode is filled to the brim with recommendations and warnings to navigate through Kdramas and Kmovies. We have a voicemail listener question, which kicks off a discussion on dramas that it seemed like everyone else loved but we had to slog through. It's possible the show is also filled with Kpop concert jealousy, Stephanie's bad attitude, and what levels she stooped to for her fake Korean Boyfriend. **Please note, during part of this discussion we do talk about 19+ movies.

Mama's First Takedown Notice

After almost three years and one thousand, one hundred and ninety four posts, it finally happened. I received my first takedown notice. 

It's not as bad as it seems, no one is threatening to sue me, I'm not being hauled off to jail, I got a polite email from Blogger, who hosts this blog, that someone submitted a complaint that I'd infringed on their copyright. What the? 

Now, if you aren't a blogger, you don't know that this is something that you either say, "Oh, it won't happen to me" or like me, you live in fear of it. Blogging and commenting can be such a murky area of legality sometimes. While a lot of what we do falls under fair use, that law in itself is murky and not easily defended. And even if we are in the right, if a big company decided to push it and take it to court, it's not like little ol' bloggers like me have the means or the opportunity to defend ourselves. Most of us fold before shooting off a single defensive shot.

Musical Monday: The BTS Edition

WHY? Why is BTS so young?? Watching their newest video (thanks Cherry) with their harder sound, driving drum beat, snarls, and swagger, I find them to be...alluring. Very alluring.

And now I'm embarrassed--thanks, BTS.

I love these guys so freaking hard! I love this video, they styling, the dancing, but most especially, how they started with each member coming in to join the dance. I'm not sure why I hadn't listened to their newest release yet, as they have yet to disappoint me in any of their music. I continue to be afraid that they will pull a B.A.P on me and will fiddle with their sound, possibly, *horrors* catching a case of aegyo. However, I should have more faith in BTS, more faith in their leader, Rap Monster, and his underground rap roots.

Khottie of the Week: Ultimate Khottie Battle--Round One

For the next few weeks we're going something a little different. can you believe we've had Khottie of the Week for over two years now? Can you believe when Jami first suggested Khottie of the Week, I thought it was a bad idea? Somebody in this friendship is an idiot--and I'll let you come to the conclusion as to which one of us it is. 

With two years of Khotties, I was wondering--which one of these guys are the best of the best? How would I even figure it out? So I've decided to throw it to you--which of the Khotties who we've featured do you think is the ultimate Khottie? Lets put it to a vote! 

How does the ultimate Khottie get chosen? It will look something like this:

How were these Khotties chosen? Again, by you! I've done the math (page views divided by weeks on the list) and these are the Khotties with the most views (I will admit, I was a little surprised by the list myself). 

So are you ready for the hottest of the hot duking it out for the win--for the title of ULTIMATE KHOTTIE?  Lets Begin!

Round One!
