A Kingdom Far Far Away

The delightfully oversharing Lee Min Ho is back on Instagram, living up his best life in Paris for his birthday. In other, related news, it was Lee Min Ho’s birthday! While I look at his collection of pictures I’m thinking…isn’t he supposed to be shooting a drama already? Come on, Lee Min Ho, you’ve been away from the military for a few months now and what I’ve seen is two vacations and a drama contract under your belt. By this time Lee Seung Gi had done two variety shows, a drama, a movie, several CF’s, at least three music videos, and probably had a plan for world peace.

I kid, my friend! Take all the time you need!  (Except for the part about Lee Seung Gi, that man is a MACHINE when it comes to his schedule.) Also, turns out? If you’re looking for that drama he signed on for, the new upcoming epic from Kim Eun Seok, you have a way to wait…it doesn’t even begin filming until the end of the year! Slated to premiere in 2020.

Which is way too far away! Read more

2 More Moons

As we edge closer and closer for what was either to be the reboot or season two of the much loved BL drama, 2Moons, handily called 2Moons2 we had more questions than answers. Why was the cast changed? Who are these new people? Will this be a continuation of the story or, because they have had to completely recast the whole thing, will it be a reimagining, a fresh start if you will. Now with the release of a special behind the scenes episode called Before the Moon Rises, we have some answers. Read more

Musical Monday – Phase Two

Posted by SaraG on June 24, 2019

Music

Sometimes, despite how much a fandom loves a group, it’s best for everyone that nobody re-signs the contract when the time comes. In November 2014, word got out that BAP had filed a lawsuit against TS Entertainment around unfair working conditions and profit distribution. TS immediately released a statement denying the rumors, but the members immediately slammed them back with a public statement threatening another lawsuit for defamation of character.

Thanks so much for some of the great responses to last week’s post! In this weeks episode we’re going to be covering the second day of #SouthKorea2019 which sees our travel-weary group packing up, venturing out on public transportation, risking what we were sure to be imminent zombie attacks on our train to Busan where we battled various sea creatures and were rewarded mightily with the best hoteok in all the land.

Khottie of the Week/ Music

After the ups and downs of the past 11 days, I needed to watch something that would be a complete and total distraction. Stephanie has been pushing Addicted at me for a long time now and given it’s a Chinese BL, it seemed like it would be the perfect distraction…and it was. Read more

Just when you think that everything has calmed down in Kpop, that you can finally take a breath and not be afraid to open the new sites…everything falls down. We’re talking about BI and YG, what happened and what it means. Then we’re moving on and talking ghost dramas in honor of the Hong Sister’s new drama Hotel Del Luna.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Mission Critical

Posted by SaraG on June 20, 2019

Music

In general, I have always been a fairly even-keeled person with pretty standard coping mechanisms for when things get stressful. There’s wine, of course, and running. But I’ve also always leaned heavily on television, movies, and books for a wee bit of escapism (a lot of escapism) and on music for when I needed to either wallow in my mood or change it. There’s nothing like a well-chosen song to help you cry out whatever it is that’s got ya down or to bolster your inner warrior so you can tackle that challenge like a Kdrama heroine in episode 3 of just about any drama.

Musical Monday – Sticking With a Theme

Posted by SaraG on June 17, 2019

Music

I’ve mentioned it before, but I do things in phases. I’ll be in a music phase, a reading phase, a drama phase, or a variety phase…whatever. For the most part, I still dabble in everything regardless, but I’m just not as focused or obsessive. On the other hand, when I do get all about something, it can get really specific. For example, for a huge chunk of 2018, I listened to new stuff for the first couple of hours in the morning and then spent the other 22 hours of the day listening to Dean on repeat. I kid you not. Right now I’m drama and music fixated. For music, it’s pretty specific and that makes it challenging to write regular posts with any sort of variety. You don’t seriously want me to just alternate between A.C.E. and Oneus and that’s kind of what I’m in the mood for.

Korean Adventure Day One: Air Planes, Time Travels, and Multiple SaraG(s)

Hey, Everyone! I’ve been debating on whether or not to do this series here, debating on whether these posts are too long, to much, or interesting to just me. Then I realized? Eh. These are really just my travel journals. I hope you like them, but if they are too long and boring, I’ll apologize and continue doing them exactly as I like. I figure, memories being what they are? Eventually, I’m going to want a minute by minute retelling of this epic trip that was #SouthKorea2019. I’ll stick at TLDR at the end for those just wanting a highlight reel at the end. This is going to be a series of posts coming out every Sunday.

Let’s Begin~
