My Beautiful Bride - A Review and Love Declaration (Part II)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 9/05/2015 12:24:00 AM
When this drama is not about a love so deep it is both beautiful and scary (see Part I of our review!), it is about the eternal struggle between good and evil, cops and criminals. Fastfood lovers and vegans. Also, we discuss what worked and what did not work ... and spend quite some time on the ending. I am still not sure how I feel about it.
I'm feeling some kind of way about this GIF...
Yes, so it's not only what worked and what did not but also who worked out and who did not

My Beautiful Bride - A Review and Love Declaration (Part I)

kakashi: Very often, I experience KDramland as stressful. It’s because it keeps pumping out show after show. It never stops, it commands constant attention and a LOT of time. And as shows become shittier and shittier (or I become more demanding - or both), watching the endless parade of beautiful oppas and puppies becomes less and less enjoyable, like too much fastfood. You kinda want it, because it gives you some pleasure, but it has no nutritional value and the more you eat, the more bloated and ultimately sick you feel.
JoAnne: I think perhaps after a while you've just had enough, and need to 'taste' something different - plus, as a thinking adult you're very conscious of those times that what you 'feed' yourself is mostly of low nutritional value, and you begin to crave more substantial stuff.
Okay, I think you get it.
I never saw this morphing GIF before. I didn't even notice it changing at first! I saw his pretty face, and then I looked up and saw his beat-up face and thought, 'Hey...wait...wasn't he...?' This is very cool. Also creepy.
I think I'll make a banner with it.

The Beavers Rear their Ugly Heads - Shoooooooo!

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 9/01/2015 03:55:00 PM
[Disclaimer: these views are my (kakashi's) own. The other bloggers on this site have not been consulted] Dramafever did something shitty? I support you!
Something a little outrageous is happening under the radar right now. Dramatic Eye, Mr. X's excellent newish Kdrama website (yes, it's subscription based, subscribe if you have not yet done so, it's utterly worth it) has received a DMCA website from Dramafever, claiming he infringed on their copyright. For .... using a poster. I assume, because there is nothing else on there that would even be remotely copyrighted. This is the site in question http://www.dramatic-eye.com/k-drama/k-drama-hub/2015-the-virtual-bride/ (yes, the offending image has since been removed - I thought we post it on here instead).

JoAnne: Bye-bye, Sweetness. We'll be so happy when you come back! Do well and stay healthy!
kakashi: Military service of K-Ent people fills me with dread. Not because they're gone for two years (I hardly like any younglings anyway, so I don't care) but because it's one of those things that make you realize how quickly time passes (just like those things that happen every year, i.e. Xmas or national beauty peagants). They go in, you think "two years! Wow! Such a long time", and then, they're out and two years have passed like they're nothing.
Jaehyus: But, but I only just discovered him!

Let's Eat with Kim Ji-hoon - Episode 3

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 8/27/2015 09:41:00 PM
I came for Kim Ji-hoon (LOVE) but am staying for the group. Well, mainly the boys plus the cute-dorky Park Hee-bon. Whom he seems really close with. I am watching you, woman >.<
This show has a load of charm (I could watch these cute Koreans walk around Paris all day and I'm even warming up to Seo Hyun-Jin) and the right mixture of droooool (Kim Ji-hoon and food. Kim Ji-hoon AND food. Doojoon and his reactions to food) and display of friendship (there is friendly teasing, lots of laughter, and what seems to be genuine fun). And no, there are no subs. But hey, just watch it. It's not that hard to understand what's going on.

~Years in Dramaland~ A journey through 2000 and 2001

Posted by MilaOnZeWeb on 8/26/2015 02:32:00 PM

Hey guyze :D -I'm writing it « guyze » because this way you know I'm cool- So … although thoughtsramble's shoulder tasted really really good -cf. the previous post, the one not on this website, the one that's here- I thought I should not impose on her. I'll guest-post for her anytime she wants because she's awesome but... see the last post was long but nearly not as long as it could have been, I was actually restraining myself. When I get in the zone I'm kind of like the Hulk of blog posts. And I don't want her to get smashed. I mean, taking a hand, an arm, a shoulder and maybe, okay, maybe even a litttttle of the neck is okay but I can't take the whole body or what will thoughtsramble have left ? So I'm chewing on PotUp now :DDDD Yep, I'm the hungry muppet and the whole internet is my cookie. That said this is different, it seems I'm here to stay so I'll just chew on this particular piece of cookie until the owner of the cookie gets really mad and chase me out. Seriously though, another round of thanks to everyone on this website for letting me write. You all rock ♥ +

kakashi: Do we have an opinion on Viki buying Soompi?
JoAnne: I get why Viki might be interested in Soompi's forums and news, etc. The more ways you capture an audience, the more firmly you have that audience. The thing is, Viki already had a community, and a unique one, at that. Now they'll look like DramaFever on steroids. Forums bring out the absolute worst in people. Sigh.
I don't do forums. I don't want 'a community'. There are a million places to find community. I want better subs, faster. I want more coverage of what's out there to watch, in the countries I came here for. BBC dramas and telenovelas are available EVERYwhere, so why do they need to be here?  Give us the weird little shows we can't find for ourselves. Pay someone to sub things DECENTLY for us. And we don't need any site to be 'exclusive.' Once in a while, okay. Every time I turn around? No. Instead, why not try to be more comprehensive with regard to offerings? Why not get faster? Why not pay people a fair wage and get quality for it?  Why not ASK us what we want, first?
With Soompi joining Viki, Viki becomes more like DramaFever. What was wrong with two entirely different types of experiences? It's not monopolies that will kill us, you know. It's monotony.

Nabi: Wow, that was brilliant, JoAnne. Brilliant.
If Viki becomes more like DramaFever we have a PROBLEM. KDramaland will be represented to us by two sites that target approximatley 12 year olds, judging from the content they currently produce (that goes for DF and Soompi).
