Kdrama OSTs

I stopped updating my OST list as frequently as the kdrama blurbs, but will get back to adding more of the shows I watched and links to my fav song(s)! One of the reasons I love kdramas so much is that I really do feel the OSTs can add a lot to the scene and…

Kdrama Mini Review Blurbs

I’m tough on myself saying I don’t write that much anymore, but I realize I do write at least once a month because every time I watch a kdrama, I write a brief review! Putting them down here since I know every time I finish one I like, I scour the web to find what…

REVIEW: Love Like The Galaxy

Sometimes, whether by luck of timing, being in the right mood or whatever reason, there is a piece of art that completely consumes you. That was me with Love Like the Galaxy. I started this show on a whim, after seeing some good reviews. There’s lot of times I haven’t loved a show that others…

Love Like The Galaxy Rewatch Thoughts

I started needing to write down my thoughts so I wouldn’t forget them, and it turned into an 86 page google doc. I suppose this is my way of writing a Twitter thread, except that I am not concise enough and patient enough to find appropriate gifs for that. But I absolutely loved rewatching and…

Musings on Junho, on me

I was more emotional than expected hearing of Junho’s Baeksang win. I was pretty shocked that he won, given his younger age and less experience compared to some of the other contenders. But his speech made me emotional when he talked about how he really wanted the award. How honest. I think sometimes I default…

Review: One Last Stop

I picked this one up because it’s by the same author of Red, White & Royal Blue (which I loved, although they are wildly different stories except that I guess they both are queer love stories with wicked humor). It did not disappoint! I didn’t read the synopsis before starting, and that actually worked out…

Review: “Her Body and Other Parties: Stories” by Carmen Maria Machado

I love this story behind the cover: https://electricliterature.com/the-story-behind-the-most-haunting-book-cover-on-the-shelves/ CW: abuse, depression, assault, food/body weight There are some stories I’ve read that are amazing, yet I can’t quite say I completely loved the author’s writing. I might have adored some sentences yes, and marveled at the way authors crafted their work. But while reading this collection,…
