So a funny thing happened. Liebster season snuck up on me when I wasn’t even looking.
When the first signs popped up, hinting that Liebster season was upon us again, I hardly took notice. I was all like, Well, I had a good go at that last year, and it was a heap of fun. Surely after 9 whole Liebsters, though, no one’s going to want to ask me more questions about myself. Right?
When I wasn’t looking, those Liebsters seemed to multiply in a little room all by their sneaky little selves. Almost like they had a will all their own. And now, I have a serious heap of questions to answer *starts sweating bullets*
I plead hectic Real Life schedules as the reason that I delegated the job of answering the Liebster questions to Future Me (hey, after watching so many time-travel dramas, you gotta learn something, right?)
So here I am, Future Me (er, now Present Me?) to the rescue! Let’s see if you guys can stick with me all the way to the very end, eh? I promise to make this as pain-free as possible😉
And, thanks to all you sweethearts who nominated me – I feel like I’ve been rained on by showers of lurve ❤

Liebster #1 – January 21st, 2014
My first clue that Liebster season was arriving was a ping on Facebook from Jaime, who hosts (is?) The Drama Noona.
Lovely Jaime is sorta new to the blogosphere, but she’s quickly racking up sunbae points even as I type this. Not only has she recently given her blog an impressive makeover, she’s putting her art school training to good use, designing cool banners for herself and others. Over Christmas, she made this post, offering a selection of her newly-made headers to other bloggers who might like them. Coz she’s just sweet that way.
And while Jaime’s got a big noona heart, she’s got a particular soft spot for Choi Jin Hyuk. So Jaime, here’s a little sumthin’ for ya:
Mmm. Very nice indeed.
Jaime gave me what she calls an Honorable Sunbaenim Nomination. Aw. Sweet thang. She really does call me sunbae, y’know. Just some of the time😉
And while she says that this is the kind of nomination where I don’t have to answer any questions and just wave and smile and enjoy my award, I thought I’d pick just one of her questions to answer.
So this is the one I picked:
2. How did you come up with the name for your blog?
When I started the blog, I knew that I wanted to focus mainly on drama reviews, and I thought The Verdict would be an apt name for the blog. And I did call it that, actually, when I started putting the blog together on Blogger.
But then I decided that WordPress looked interesting and wanted to give it a go. I signed up for an account, all excited about getting The Verdict a home on WordPress, and.. “The Verdict” was not available. Bummer, I thought.
I chewed on my options for about a minute, and decided that The Fangirl Verdict would have to do. And that’s how The Fangirl Verdict was born.
Definitely what I would call a happy accident, coz now on hindsight, I feel like The Fangirl Verdict suits me a whole lot more. And says everything about what I’m doing here on the net. Fangirling (of course). And writing reviews (of course).
Liebster #2 – January 24th, 2014
NeeNee is quite the sunbae around the blogosphere, having been blogging for 4 years now (wow, right?!?). What’s even more amazing is that she seems to have found the secret of bending time and space, coz she posts a heckuva lot. More than one person should logically be able to manage, even if they decided they didn’t need a life. Or sleep.
Yet, she single-handedly churns out a plethora of posts, from recaps to reviews, and she’s taken on multiple 30-day blogging challenges (and owned them all, too). Respect, truly.
NeeNee says that she doesn’t have one particular favorite actor, but she’s named a bunch of actors that she appreciates, and I decided that this pic would make a suitable prezzie for this post.
Here’s Kang Ji Hwan, celebrating with showers of happiness, just like we are.
Well, maybe not exactly like we are. I’ve still got my shirt on. Do you?😉
And on we go, to NeeNee’s questions:
1. What made you start blogging?
Towards the end of 2012, a burning desire to write bit me and bit me good. And I had a whole lotta drama love saved up for the 6 years that I’d been steadily consuming kdrama. And then Stephanie asked me to write a guest year-in-review post. And she also asked whether I had a blog. And so I thought, Well.. Maybe I should make one? And here we are. Heh.
I wasn’t even fully convinced that I would blog for long, honestly. I just wanted to know what it felt like to have a blog. And now that I’ve started, I find it hard to stop. So.. I guess I’ll be here for a while yet😉
You can check out the full story on the origin story of the blog here.
2. What keeps you blogging?
It’s a combination of the sense of community here in the blogosphere, and the feeling that I’m contributing something to the dramaverse.
I used to think that I could stop this blogging thing at any time. After all, it’s something that I started on a whim, just to see how it feels. And now that I know how it feels, I can stop. Right?
Well. It didn’t quite work out that way. Now I feel like this blog isn’t mine alone, and there are lovely readers here who love this space as much as I do. And I feel so encouraged by them when they get excited about the stuff I post. They – you! – are the ones who make it hard to walk away. And that’s why I’m still here. That, and I still do like talking about dramas.😉
3. Future goals (in or outside the blogging/drama-watching sphere)?
To grow up without growing old, to always love what I do and have fun while I’m doing it, and to always be happy.
Oh, and watch a lot of drama.
4. Profession? (out of curiosity, what do you do in your real life?)
I’m secretly a superhero.
To protect my superhero identity, I also go undercover to conduct training workshops to unsuspecting civilians. Shhh. Don’t tell.
5. Gateway addiction into the drama realm?
Goong. I loved it so freaking much.
6. Favorite quote? [NeeNee loves quotes from movies, dramas, literature that really resonate and hit you, you know?]
I can’t say I’ve got a favorite. But I rather like this one:
“With great power comes great responsibility” ~ Spiderman
This makes so much sense to me, not only in Real Life, but in blogging too. With this blog, I have a voice in the blogosphere, and I feel it’s important to use that voice responsibly.
7. Coffee? Tea? Neither? [I personally think white chocolate hot chocolate is the most awesome concoction as is horchata.]
Ooh. Tea. Iced Oolong. Or iced White. Or iced Rosehip & Hibiscus.
Do we see a trend?
8. Have you ever tried Calpis water [or something like it]?
No, I can’t say I have. But I hear Calpis is sour, and I love lemons. Does that count?
9. Are you proficient in more than one language? If so, which?
I can speak Mandarin & Cantonese, and sort of understand a handful of other Chinese dialects. I understand some Japanese from 2 years of Japanese lessons. But my Korean’s better than my Japanese. That I learned purely from watching kdrama. Hee.
For more on how I pick up Korean while watching drama, you can check out this post.
10. Favorite OST?
Ooh, tough one. I love so many.
Chuno‘s soundtrack is masterful, evocative and completely immersive.
And Goong’s soundtrack is wonderfully pitch-perfect for Goong’s fantasy world. It’s light, breezy and quite addictive.
Liebster #3 – January 24th, 2014
How sweet are they, to
let me off the ho-, er, graciously excuse me from answering a whole 10 questions?😉
As a little thank-you to the ladies, I’m gifting them with this gorgeous shot of the man around whom their entire blog revolves, Jang Hyuk.
That’s right. Theirs is an entire blog dedicated to all things Jang Hyuk, who happens to be one hawt man.
I also happen to have a robust, er, appreciation for Jang Hyuk’s fine.. talents, and you can check out my k-love post for him here.
Even though they said I didn’t have to answer any questions, I thought I’d pick one to answer anyway.
And here’s my pick:
5. What was your first Kdrama crush?
Technically, this would have to be Joo Ji Hoon, since he played the Crown Prince in Goong, and I loved that show to bits.
Coming in a very close second would be Ji Sung, coz Save Your Last Dance For Me was my second kdrama ever, and he played our suave leading man.
I’m fairly sure that I crushed on Ji Sung even more than I crushed on Joo Ji Hoon.
And then came kdrama #3, and.. Ok, I’ll stop now.😉

Liebster #4 – January 26th, 2014
snow_white was one of the first friends I made here in the k-blogosphere, and has always been a pleasure to chat with. On her blog, she posts frequent, bite-size posts which are quick and fun to read; it’s a perfect way to get in a quick dose of dramaland when you’ve got a bite-sized pocket of time.
Although snow_white says she doesn’t have one ultimate bias, I feel like she’s got a soft spot for Lee Min Ho. I know she was supremely happy when he got cast with Park Shin Hye in Heirs, and that OTP kept her boat afloat all series long.
So here, snow_white. Here’s some Lee Min Ho cute for ya:
Hope you likey😉
And now, onto snow_white’s questions!
1. Who is your favorite K-ent actor and actress?
But I thought, why not challenge myself to pick a k-actor whom I respect purely for his acting? And the name that immediately came to mind was Kim Myung Min.
The man takes method acting to a whole new level, immersing himself completely in character from start to finish. You never feel like you’re watching Kim Myung Min in character. Rather, he becomes the character.
As for a favorite k-actress, I have several whom I really like, but since I’m only picking one, I’m gonna have to choose Shin Min Ah.
She’s got a uniquely approachable yet ethereal goddess-like quality about her, and is wonderfully gung-ho in roles. You just can’t help but love her, really.
2. Talking about favorites, what are your favorite movies, TV serials, actors and actresses outside Kdramaland?
I don’t watch a lot of non-kdrama stuff anymore, to be honest.. But my favorite movie of all time is When Harry Met Sally. And my favorite serial that’s non-k is Japan’s Hana Kimi, which is fantastic, campy fun. No one does live action manga like the Japanese, imo.
3. If your life were a drama, which one would it be?
Ooh. This one’s tough.
Um.. I’m gonna go with Baby-Faced Beauty, coz I’ve often been mistaken for younger than my actual age.. Now all I need is my own Daniel Choi😉 Although I’d rather have my own Woobie ❤ Crossover?
4. Dramas or novels? Why?
Dramas. I used to love novels, but I haven’t been reading much at all lately.
Plus dramas often come with gorgeous OSTs and novels.. don’t.
5. Which color do you like the most and why?
Red. Coz it’s bright, happy & passionate. Just like me (hur).
6. Your dream cast for a drama: main leads as well as second leads………….
This recent article about Yoon Eun Hye picking Gong Yoo as her ideal type got me and Evez talking. Evez, being quite the romantic, said it’d be nice if Gong Yoo was interested in Yoon Eun Hye too, and was just waiting for the right time to propose.
And that fired up a drama scenario in my head, where Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo play celebs like they are in real life, and they’ve worked together before. Each nurses a crush on the other, but doesn’t do anything about it except hint through the media, via articles like the one I read.
Of course, they both think the other party is just saying obligatory nice things, and that it’s all media talk.
Several years after they first work together, they get cast together again, to play the OTP of a drama. Let’s make it a rom-com. They each sign on, eager to work with the object of their respective affections, but both maintain cool, unruffled professionalism on the surface.
As they get into filming the drama, they both have to navigate the intricacies of working together – filming, interviews, photoshoots, variety appearances – all while trying to hide, yet fan, their feelings for each other. The stolen glances, the silent squees once they’re out of sight and out of earshot of the other, and the barely controlled swoon as they get up close and personal for filming and photoshoots.
Gah. HOW MUCH FUN WOULD THAT BE?!??
We could have Jo Jung Suk playing Yoon Eun Hye’s nervous, obsessive compulsive manager who nurses his own crush on her. And we could have Im Joo Eun play Gong Yoo’s ballsy, sharp and no-nonsense manager who nurses a secret crush on her charge as well.
Of course, eventually Jo Jung Suk and Im Joo Eun would fall head over heels in love too. Coz they would be so, SO cute together.
For more dream drama scenarios, check out my dream drama post here.
7. What is the best thing about blogging in your opinion?
I’d have to say it’s been the sense of community, where we squee together as well as exchange ideas. So often, my ideas have been challenged and expanded through conversations with other bloggers and fans here in the blogosphere, and that’s just very, very cool stuff.
Liebster #5 – January 28th, 2014
Two days later, I received Liebster #5 from my friend misscupcakees who hosts A Fairytale World. And whom I realize gifted me with a Liebster last year too. What can I say? I guess she loves me a lot?😉
misscupcakees is always a pleasure to chat with, coz she’s so full of bubbly, cheery energy. And she manages to get so much drama on her screen, I don’t know how she does it. On her blog, she covers not only kdrama, but also Hong Kong, Taiwanese and Japanese dramas. I think she knows the secret door to the fourth dimension, seriously.
Although misscupcakees doesn’t profess to have a favorite actor, she does count Lee Jun Ki among the ones that she appreciates. So here, misscupcakees, this is a little bit of Lee Jun Ki for ya:
Mmm. Handsome, handsome man.
And now, on to misscupcakee’s questions!
1. How did you get into blogging about drama?
On a whim😉
See answer to Liebster #2, Question 1 for more details. Or go here for the full origin story.
2. What is your all-time favourite drama trope that you can watch over and over again?
Bad boy turning over a new leaf in the name of love. I am quite a sucker for that. Or noona love. Or both, coz, why not?
3. Who is your favourite OTP and why? (I asked this during my previous Liebster Award post but it doesn’t hurt to ask it again).
The last time misscupcakees asked me this question, I answered Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo In Na in Queen In-hyun’s Man.
This time, I thought I’d pick another worthy OTP whom I love, and that’s Lee Jun Ki and Shin Min Ah in Arang and the Magistrate.
I loved them both immensely in this show. They were perfectly, equally matched. I never felt one was more important than the other. They were both amazing. And they had such fantastic chemistry too. Just look at ’em:
4. Who do you have the most severe SLS (second lead syndrome) towards?
Young Do in Heirs. Coz, Kim Woo Bin. ❤
5. What is your favourite MV? Link me please!
I already post drama-related MVs in my reviews, so I thought I’d go with a non-drama-related MV.
I don’t listen to much kpop at all, but I thought this version of All I Want for Christmas is You by Bom&Hi was flat-out brilliant.
They don’t change the lyrics or the tempo or even the mood of the instrumentals of the original song, but manage to change the song’s whole meaning – everything – simply by tweaking the context of the MV. And I always say that context is everything, so.. this is a perfect example.
Check it out:
6. What is one drama that you regret ever having started regardless of whether you finished it or not?
Oh my. Dream High 2. It’s.. bad. And yes, I finished it.
7. Poor girl, rich guy. Write up a drama plot revolving around them.
I’d have Sung Joon as a chaebol heir who duly puts in a suited up appearance or two at the office every couple of weeks, but spends most of his time rocking out on the drums with his band at a smoky indie club. He genuinely loves music and wants to change the indie music scene, making it easier for indie musicians to make their music available without selling out to soulless big management companies.
Jung Eun Ji is the poor student-cum-waitress who works at the club where Sung Joon plays. She’s loud and brassy, with her Busan accent firmly in place, and exceedingly cute. She’s working to put herself through school, and puts up in a room at the back of the club. She often yells at the rocker boys for continuing to play long after the club’s closed for the day coz she’s trying to study.
Cue rom-com hijinks as the rocker dude and the spunky waitress cross paths and bicker their way to romance in spite of themselves. Then cue lots of romantic cuteness after they fall hopelessly in love, in spite of themselves. And then cue more hijinks as Sung Joon tries repeatedly to reveal his chaebol-ness to her, but fails in spite of his best efforts coz she thinks he’s pranking her as usual.
They eventually live happily ever after, still bickering, of course.
8. Who are some guys that you can just stare at for days and nights without having them to even do anything?
Why, Kim Woo Bin of course. ❤ Yes, yes, I know. I have a one-track fangirl mind. Let’s call it.. focus.😉
Yep, I’ve had great difficulty tearing my eyes away from this pic. Great. Difficulty.
9. What are you currently studying/have studied etc. or what is your current job (if you are currently working)?
See Liebster #2, Question 4.
10. What are some places you want to visit (it can be fictional or not) and where in the world do you currently reside? (I know, I cheated with asking 11 questions in all but hey, rules are meant to be broken!)
Ok, so the obvious answer is Korea. In terms of travel destination, that’s my top pick.
On a fantasy note, I’d like to visit the restaurant in Fermentation Family, coz not only is it in a beautiful location:
They serve the most delicately prepared kimchi that looks out-of-this world:
Oh, and I live in Singapore.
Fanny Fink – Sweet
Liebster #6 – January 31st, 2014
Over at POPS MISSION, Pops has a great collection of thoughtful yet humorous drama and movie reviews, along with other fun posts. And she’s also got a soft spot for Lee Min Ho.
And even though we already have a pic of him in this post, I always say that shared squee is the best kind, so what’s the harm in sharing some squee over Lee Min Ho, eh?😉
Pops, this one’s for you:
Hope you likey.
And now, on to Pops’ questions!
1. Which drama character would you marry in real life?
Choi Han Gyul, Coffee Prince. I want that smitten face to be from thinking about me. ❤
2. What actors/actresses do you love so much that you would watch a totally terrible drama just because they were in it? Any examples?
Oh my. I watched One Fine Day (a totally terrible drama) for Gong Yoo. Twice.
And I watched Heirs for Kim Woo Bin. All of it.
3. Did you have a moment in your drama watching history when you just suddenly realised you were totally hooked?
Hee. When my sister and I stayed up way past our bed-time in order to watch one more episode of Goong. And then one more. And then one more.
I plead first drama love/insanity.
4. What do your friends and family think of your obsession? Do they know?
Mostly they look at it with a mix of eye-rolling & amusement. They indulge me when I talk about drama. To a point.
Of the few people in my Real Life who know about this blog, only a tiny percentage of the few actually bother to check it out.
5. Do you have a favourite drama kiss scene?
I probably have several. But the one that comes to mind right now, is at the end of episode 12 of Big, where Gong Yoo kisses Lee Min Jung. It’s so gentle, so tender, so full of wonder.
I melt. And swoon. ❤
6. What is it about your favourite drama that makes you love it so much?
Gosh, it’s tough picking favorites!
I love Life is Beautiful coz it’s heartwarming, fuzzy, cozy goodness folded into a lovely drama package. I love Coffee Prince coz it’s just so well-written, so well-acted, so well-paced and so addictive. And I love Goong, coz being my first kdrama, it gives me so many feels.
For more thoughts on what makes drama crack stay cracky for me, you can check out this post.
7. Why did you start a blog?
The how of it all was a spontaneous sort of thing. The why? It was to see what having a blog felt like. And to give my drama thoughts a voice to be heard.
Go here for the full origin story.
8. Have you ever walked up to a non drama viewing family member or friend and started singing ‘Almoost Paraaadise” at them?
I’m gonna hafta say no. Phew. Otherwise I might be writing this from a mental institution.
9. What is your guilty pleasure drama?
Hee. That would either be Playful Kiss, coz it’s such a happy, simple world, despite its (rather huge) flaws.
Or Chuno, coz I first tuned in to this masterpiece just to gawk at the shirtless men.😉
Ahem. You can hardly blame me, right?
10. Tell us 5 random facts about yourself (presuming you haven’t done this already)
(1) I learned Chinese calligraphy for a year in school. I was terrible at it, but it fixed my Chinese handwriting good and proper. Suddenly with a normal pen (instead of a calligraphy brush), my Chinese characters actually became pretty. Go figure.
(2) I nearly became a lawyer. My parents tried talking me into accepting a place at law school coz of the prestigious career they felt it would give me. Thank goodness I came to my senses in time. I would’ve been miserable in law school. And probably a terrible lawyer too. Plus, most lawyers I know don’t have a whole lotta drama time.
(3) Before I went all into drama, I went through a beauty phase where instead of drama, I was super interested in all things beauty. As a result, I now have way more makeup and skincare than my face can accommodate. Oopsie.
(4) My body temperature is slightly higher than most people. I think it might have to do with my high metabolism. It’s one of my secret superpowers. Metabolize! And I’m hungry again.
(5) I was super shy as a child. So shy that I didn’t dare talk to other kids. Or accept party hats at kids’ parties. Now I talk to strangers as an integral part of my job. What a turnaround. I am still an introvert at heart though.
Liebster #7 – January 31st, 2014
Yep, apqaria’s blog is all about Lee Da Hae. Talk about focus and dedication🙂
This is for you, apqaria:
What a pretty pic.
And although apqaria’s Special Mention Liebster means I don’t have to answer her questions, I thought I’d pick one anyway.
I decided this one would be fun:
2. How many dramas can you watch at the same time?
I totally used to be a one-drama-at-a-time kinda gal. I felt that watching anything more than that would dilute the drama experience for me. Such a purist, eh?
Now, though, I have about 7 – yes, SEVEN! – dramas going at the same time. I don’t watch all of them evenly though. I sometimes will leave a few on the backburner for a while as I watch the rest, and then come back to the backburner dramas when the mood strikes.
I guess I’m better at multitasking than I thought.😉
Liebster #8 – January 31st, 2014
To be honest, this is my first time meeting Kelly, so I don’t know a whole lot about her yet. Although, I do know from her Liebster post that she’s currently crushing on Kim Soo Hyun.
So here, Kelly. A little bit of delicious Kim Soo Hyun for you:
And onward, to Kelly’s questions!
1. If you can be a female drama lead in any drama, who would it be?
I’m gonna stick with last year’s answer to this question. I wanna be Lee Min Jung in Big. Coz she gets to be kissed in wonderful, epic fashion by Gong Yoo. ❤
2. What would you do if a banana you are about to eat comes to life and begs you for his/her life?
I’d set it free in the wild. But my dog would probably eat it before it got too far. She loves bananas.
3.What is your all time favourite song to sing at the karaoke?
Somewhere Over the Rainbow. It’s a happy song. I think.
4. What subject are you majoring in and do you know what you want to be in the future/what is your occupation?
See Liebster #2, Question 4.
Oh, and I majored in English Language and English Literature.
5.If the world ends in a week, would you still watch dramas for the remaining time or would you think that it’s a waste of time?
Hmm. I’d probably spend more time getting Real Life stuff in order. But depending on what I was watching before I found out the world was going to end, I might make some time for it😉
6. Do you believe in supernatural beings such as ghost, gumiho, aliens, etc.?
Um. Yes to supernatural stuff. No to gumihos, aliens etc.
7. What influences your choice in picking a drama to watch?
Primarily whether the scenario sounds interesting. Next, I’d be interested in the casting too. And then who’s writing/directing.
Of course, if Kim Woo Bin’s in it, I’m in for the long haul. Come what may. Coz I love my Woobie ❤
8. What is the earliest memory you can remember?
I was probably about 4 and my parents had brought me to a chicken farm along with a group of other friends. The chicken feathers made me sneeze and sneeze and I couldn’t see straight coz I was too busy sneezing. I grabbed tightly onto my mother’s hand and wouldn’t let go till we got out of the chicken area.
It was only then that I realized everyone was laughing coz I’d grabbed onto some other lady’s hand instead of my mom’s. In my defence, I couldn’t see coz I was sneezing so hard. Plus she smelled like my mom; I think she was wearing the same perfume.
Afterwards, I felt traumatized at all those adults laughing at me. I was a super shy kid, remember?
9. What food out of any dramas you’ve watched do you want to try?
There’re lots of Korean restaurants and eateries in Singapore where I live, so it’s not been hard translating drama greed into Real Life food experiences.
Bibimbap was the first, and Korean BBQ pork remains one of my faves.
I’d really love to try all the fantastic looking kimchi in Fermentation Family, though. It all looks so good. Drool.
10.What would you do if you have amnesia? (kinda like making up your own story involving amnesia)
Wow. I can’t think of a story, really.
What I would do, if I did actually wake up with amnesia one day, would be to read through my journals to find the people I trust the most, and then ask them about my life.
And then I’d watch all my favorite dramas again. Coz when else can you feel the magic of experiencing your favorite dramas for the first time, all over again???😀
See? There’s a silver lining to everything. Heh.
Phew. That was a whole lotta stuff about me, wasn’t it? For sticking with me through all 8 of these, I’m sending you big hugs. Thanks, you guys ❤
If you’re up for still more stuff about me, you can check out my first Liebster post here.
If your head starts to hurt partway through, though, you might wanna pace yourself. Coz I found this little nugget of wisdom which you might find useful:
You’ve been warned. Hee.😉
So here’s where I’m changing up the rules and doing whatever I want. Just coz I can.
Instead of 10 questions for 10 bloggers, I’m going with 3 questions for 5 bloggers. Coz, why not?
And get this:
1. You can totally take these any way you want. You can make a post, or update an existing post, or answer the questions in the comments section here, or just smile and wave and accept your awards. How cool is that?
2. Everyone can play! Even if you don’t blog, feel free to share your answers with everyone in the comments. I thought of this coz when Liebster season started, Evez asked me if this was only for bloggers, and I realized that it’d be fun if everyone – not just bloggers – got to play.
In no particular order, my nominees are:
A lovely little community that’s run by Grace, supported by her lovely minion Jules, mawiie and NewKdramaAddict. Musings boasts a wide variety of posts, from recaps to movie reviews to news tid-bits to a regular eye-candy section, so there’s always a little something for everyone.
Not only does Amanda regularly churn out insightful, fun reviews, she often comes up with wonderful concept posts which run the gamut from sharply profound to side-splittingly hysterical. Always a great read.
Betsy is one of my favorite people in the blogosphere, and I had so much fun with her on our first Trading Thoughts post. (More to come, we promise!) She’s insightful, profound, sweet, and has a wonderful way with words. She writes lots of reviews and reaction posts & I love reading her stuff. Sometimes I wish I watched more drama, so that I could read everything she writes. But I’m a spoiler-phobe, so I sometimes save some of her posts for later. Or dodge like a ninja through ’em, just to get a feel for how she feels about a show.
DDee’s blog is a lot like her: fun, eclectic and interesting. You never know what you’re gonna get, but it’ll definitely be a fun ride.
Sarah’s got a great writing style that I really like. The first time I poked around her blog, I knew that she’d be fun to read. At the moment she’s making a couple of changes on her blog, so expect to see reviews coming soon – spoiler-free versions will be available too. Whatever she decides to write, though, I’m sure it’ll be great to read.
1. For some people, kdrama literally saved their lives. What does kdrama mean to you?
2. Which is your favorite comfort-food drama? Your go-to drama when everything feels bleargh and you just wanna feel better?
3. Who’s your favorite kdrama character and why?
And! Here’s a final word of wisdom that I learned from writing this post!
Heh. So even if answering more questions feels like a tough journey, you’ll eventually get there. One step at a time.
Thanks, everyone. Kisses & hugs to ya ❤
