Voice One Episode In, Do We Stay Or Do We Go?

Posted by Stephanie on January 24, 2017

Oops, we did it again! We finish up a drama, ready to try a new one, a new one we’re bound and determined to be one title and yet when it comes down to actually sitting down and watching the show? We suddenly veer off course and watch something else! When we watched Moonlight Drawn By Clouds we KNEW, we knew in our hearts of hearts, our next drama would be W. What did we watch? When A Snail Loves. When we watched Snail? Yep, the next drama was going to be Goblin! We reaffirmed this every time we talked. We told others. And yet, when it came down to actually sitting down and watching? Even though we knew how much everyone was loving it? Yep. We decided to tackle the recently started, Voice.

Year In Review? The Good, The Bad, and The Unwatched

good-bad

I watched dramas this year! I did, I did! Okay. So, not a lot of them. 2016 sucked balls for so many reasons, but my lack of drama watching desire was definitely one of them. However, good news guys! I seem to be coming out the other side. My subconscious is remembering dramas are a thing and sometimes dramas are a very good thing. (Next up, Leila and I are starting Goblin.) But this is all future things. We’re here to talk dramas from 2016.

So BEGIN!

Kpop on the DL’s 2016 Year End Drama Review

The problem and joy of being a new-ish drama fan is that there are hundreds of great dramas to watch.  You should see my To Be Watched list.  Its a little overwhelming!  This year, I tried to balance watching hot new dramas (so I can participate in all the discussion around them), with the older dramas everyone tells me I absolutely have to watch.  So, while I watched quite a few dramas, I didn’t get to all the 2016 things I wanted to get to.  While you were watching W, I was probably watching something like Healer or Sungkyunkwan Scandal.

BigBang Made Movie Experience

This post is so late in coming to you that I’m embarrassed. I’m embarrassed and I feel like I need to apologize to the boys of BigBang. My lateness on this post has no reflection on you, my love of you or my appreciation for all of your hard work putting all this together. My bad boys, I’ll try to do better in the future.

What is this about? Well, while I was in LA for KCON, something very special happened. I got to see the BigBang Made movie! And, oddly, it is an experience I will never forget. Read more

We made it to the end! Which is a lot more than we can say for some of our characters — or even our interest in the show? I’ll keep all spoilers underneath the fold, but, I’m sure, we will be spoiling the crap out of this ending.

Stephanie: So. Leila. How do you feel about your first saeguk? Was it everything you wished, dreamed, or dreaded it would be? Read more

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Drama Chat Part 13&14

We knew it! We knew, knew, knew that angst and tears were coming our way. Just looking at the amount of episodes we had left, we knew the cuteness and happy train had to derail at some point, and that some point was now.

Stephanie: I’m just going to come out and say it. I was very, very angry at what’s her face these episodes. She broke his heart, and what was worse, set him up for an even bigger fall. That is pretty inexcusable. Read more

Drama Chat: Moonlight Drawn By Clouds Parts 11&12

Great news guys! Moonlight said “No way Jose” (or the Korean equivalent thereof) to an extension. Not that the show isn’t good, and not that I couldn’t watch more and more and more episodes of Park Bo Gum, but this late in the game I worried about how seamlessly they could do it. We’re officially in the home stretch, our couple is still together, evil schemes keep being evil, and more people are figuring out just who our heroine is. Could the net be closing in?? Read more

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Part 9&10 Bring On The Cuteness

Depending on whether or not that extension comes through, we are either halfway, or more than halfway, through Moonlight. This set of episodes were filled with cute, cute, and more cute, Daddy Dearest going further round the bend, Princess finally shedding the fat suit (Yeah, can we talk about this timeline–PLEASE?), and the bad guys (good guys? Who knows) getting ever closer to finding out just who our eunuch is for real-zees. They had better not mess with our cute couple–that’s what we have the heroine for!

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Part 7&8

Episodes 7&8! Not quite half-way through but we had enough forward motion to the plot and relationship that it seems like it could be even further in. Which, as a veteran drama watcher, makes one nervous! So, before we started these episodes Leila was saying how she wasn’t as hooked on this show as she was Scarlet Heart. Did this set of episodes do anything to change your mind? Read more
