Her Private Life

Episode Length: 74 Minutes
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Based on the popular webtoon, “Noona Fan Dot Com” by Kim Seng Yeon, this is the romantic story of a woman who dedicates her entire life to a celebrity only to be blindsided by her overbearing, handsome new boss who finds out about her fangirling of a younger pretty boy of the famous boy group called White Ocean. Seong Deok Mi is an art curator for a prestigious art museum during the day and the loyal manager of the pop idol Cha Si An’s fansite at night. She uses her business trips as excuses to catch glimpses of her Cha Si An, treasures her high-powered camera to capture the clearest picture of her prince charming only to photoshop his photos before publication, and goes on the fangirl version of a pilgrimage to holy places Cha Si An’s feet have walked upon. Her new boss, Ryan Gold, a genius artist from America who discontinued painting for mysterious reasons, clashes with Seong Deok Mi the first few times they interact, revealing the sexual tension behind all that “interacting.” Through Cha Si An and a coveted painting by an unknown painter, Ryan Gold and Seong Deok Mi become more connected outside of their professional lives.

First Impression: The Crowned Clown Episodes 1 – 8 “Yeo Jin Goo vs Yeo Jin Goo.”

Hope everyone had a great new year! My parents decided to spend New Year in California, far, far away from their kids and home. It was really quiet without my mom’s laughter. So I decided to watch a Korean drama…. The Crowned Clown with Yeo Jin Goo playing a crazy King who is paranoid of his enemies and so he finds a clown who looks exactly like himself and places him on the throne. Who would have thought Yeo Jin Goo will one day steals his own thunder. Lol. What a powerhouse actor he is and I sat there marathoning the first half of the series, shocked at the ending of episode 8!

Aww, the remake of Korean series Reply Me 1988 looks adorable! It’s officially known as Our Youth (我们的青春期). And it’s airing today (6/26). Lol.

C’mon ladies, we need more dramas that depict the love and sacrifices us girls can make for and with each other too!

Chinese Remake of Answer Me 1988 casts Zeng Qi and Kou Zhen Yu

There are three series to the Answer Me franchise and yet they picked Answer Me 1988, perhaps the most infuriating one of the three to remake! Answer Me 1988 revolves around five friends and their families, growing up in the 1980s. Of course, the infamous husband-hunting crack factor of the whole franchise doesn’t miss its chance in here as well. Our heroine is the only girl of the group and finds herself stuck between the bromance of two other friends. Hehe.

– remembers the heartbreak and frustration –

NOT CUTE!

Thai Remake of You Who Came From the Stars casts Nadech Kugimiya and Matt Peranee

Ah, Kim Hubby’s drama, You Who Came From the Stars, gets a Thai Adaptation, securing actor Nadech Kugimiya and Matt Peranee in the leading roles. Interesting, to me the original is totally owned by Jun Ji Hyun so it will be a challenge for another actress to top or come close to her perfect performance as the famous starlet who lives next door to our male lead, a 400-year old cynical alien with super powers. I don’t know much about Thai dramaland and a quick google tells me both of the Thai actors are under 30! So young despite their more mature faces.
