For f*ck's sake, just don't swear!

   I love Knetizens because I always liked stories about insanity, creepiness and in overall The Fall of Ushers. They are consistent in fact - they can never, ever let you down in category of "let's ridicule ourselves. Again". So if anything happens in Kfandom funky world - check comments and your world will soon become brighter. Well, brighter than K-ent anyway. (pun intended).

   I don't mind idols casting in dramas, this way we can check if they can act (Eunji) or not (Yunho). But, dear PDs in the Land of Morning Cray, you DO have amazing actors yet you don't use them and if you do - in some crappy productions that even Yunho would do (I guess that will be added to my repertoire of insults from now on. Come and get me!).
But I'm filling a complaint to UN, Interpol, UNICEF and every other organization that deals with abusing human rights for not casting Choi Daehun in any drama/movie.

Kdrama paranoia

 photo paranoia.jpg

   Last seasons we've been having same pattern repeating in few dramas, or motif, some similar line and elements. As I said, I don't mind same plot-line, because every drama offers a different approach to the same topic. But looks like writers just can't think out of the box when speaking about the general settings. 
Last season was plagued by better or less good time-travel motif. I liked Rooftop Prince version, other people didn't, they liked other dramas, I didn't. It happens.
This year, we have humanity's fate at stake.

Spring in Dramaland

 If anyone has allergy to Kpollen, well, annoying times approach. You better have your meds and tissues.
Last season was somehow dry for Kdrama. I dropped almost all dramas that started airing last year or at the beginning of this one, with the exception of Missing You, which, although being a happy trainwreck from around ep 15, managed to clutch me tight within its grip and I genuinely anticipated what the next episode will bring. 
But spring season looks quite promising (all pinky and fluff and petals, I will explode with kawaii soon).

War of K-arrows

   Do you, fellow readers, remember those dark times when we waited a whole week or even more for subtitles? Some of you for sure, cause we're old, ahahaha!
With Hallyu sudden rise after 2010 we got a little more comfy with growing communities of fans translating vids fairly fast, like viki or DSC. Depending on the show, subs were even available the very same day (oh, hay Faith).
As everything in this world, going global has consequences.

Sageuk slump

   By sageuk I mean also to include daeha. It may be only my biased view but lately there is a significant slump in period drama production and those that are made, somehow fail to deliver. Last year there was only Mushin that made me stick with it all through 50+ episodes. I also watched Queen Insu, but since the show reminded unsubbed, I probably lost lot of it in the course.

Talent and wit of Korean Air Force wow global audiences

   Some weeks ago I was tipped by a lovely friend of mine regarding military parody of "Les Miserables" and of course I loved that from the first sound. I love musicals, I love parodies, so I had my day. I meant to write about this for some time but somehow something else was on my mind all the time.
Turns out - this is slowly becoming new viral sensation. This time with full sense, talent and coherence. They sing so damn well (no wonder Dino was pissed once).
Oh and English subs too.

Cactus by Namstar and Lucia

   I like Epitone Project because I like slow songs too (OK, I lied, I love slow songs). Wuhyeonnie and Lucia covered one song of his (because it's one man project in general), mainly 선인장 (Cactus). In original, the vocal belonged to Cha Sejeong (차세정). This version is in slightly more upbeat r'n'b tempo. And even though it was that hoarse voice of Wuhyeon I fell in love with, his soft rendering is really, really well done.

March 1st Commemorative Speech by President

Let's be frank, Lady President has a tough, chaotic and quite crazy country to lead. 
If you wonder what March 1st Movement is - I wrote about that here.
