Hi all! My last post was published three months ago — wow. I realize I have been neglecting this blog, and I can only say that I have
returned with a better image and will not disappoint my fans — sorry, was channeling Kpop idol apologies right there.
I guess a mix of things happened. I began dating someone for the first time in my life. I started living in an apartment. My roommate got a cat. I started taking upper-division courses at school.
These aren’t really excuses for not blogging, though, since I guess I technically still have time. I’m just horrible at managing time. But I hope that these circumstances provide a better context for why I was gone for so long.
No worries, however! I am bringing this blog back to life, since I missed writing so much. I plan on shifting my blogging focus to Kpop rather than dramas, though I’m not super committed on this plan yet. Regardless, I’m just glad to get back into blogging, and I hope y’all enjoy the future posts to come!
OK I think I’ve just heard my favorite 2018 Kpop release — fromis_9’s “Love Bomb”.
That’s the post.
I’m going back to studying now.
The iconic OST for the drama, La La La Love Song:
The number one reason to watch this drama is for its well-written script.
Have you ever watched a drama where the plot progresses so fast that it’s almost like you’re watching a Dramabeans recap instead of the actual show? Or have you watched a drama that is so slow that you give up on the show and start reading Kpop forums instead?
Well, I think I’ve found a drama with perfect pacing — Long Vacation, a 1996 Japanese drama starring Kimura Takuya and Yamaguchi Tomoko as two housemates who start out as friends but gradually begin developing romantic feelings for each other.
There’s a lot of dialogue, but it doesn’t make the show boring. Instead, their conversations are always interesting, and are structured in a way that seems natural, rather than simply existing to further plot along.

It’s that time of year again.
Sing China is back. Season 3, can you believe how fast time flies? Goodness, I myself just turned 20 a few months ago and I’m still finding that hard to believe.
And by popular demand (and by that I mean one comment on one of my recent posts), I guess I’ll be recapping this show once more. But it’s not going to be detailed, okay? I’ve sort of lost patience for recapping over the years. It takes a lot of time and devotion to write lengthy posts. I’ll basically be posting links to individual performances in the episodes and also reviewing the performances. Continue reading
This week’s music is slightly more interesting!
Note: I meant to post this before leaving on my trip to Tokyo… Sorry for the delay! I didn’t forget about this T-pop series 🙂
