Well, time has flown by, and while our Nirvana in Fire group watch is still on-going (so rich, and so meaty! Do join us, if you can!), we have now completed our group watch of the very breezy and very fun My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.
..Which means it’s time to announce the start of our Kill Me, Heal Me group watch, which was the second Editor’s Choice pick that I made. Here are all the details you might need!
As you can tell from this post’s title, I’ve switched to a new commenting system for the blog, and I’m hopeful that this will make conversations on the blog a lot more fun to navigate!
Also, this feels timely, since a number of you let me know that the edit button for comments has stopped appearing for you. Not to worry, my friends! This new commenting system has a built-in editing feature, so you’ll be able to edit your comments for up to 15 minutes after posting them, just like the previous one.
The new commenting system is fairly easy to navigate instinctively, but I thought I’d highlight a couple of things, just to make it even easier for everyone.
Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll; 413 votes were cast by 224 voters, and Nirvana in Fire came out on top, with 94 votes, woot!
As promised, I’ve also made my Editor’s Choice group watch picks – plural, because it’s going to take two shows, not just one, to match the 18 weeks that it will take to complete our Nirvana in Fire group watch!
As you can tell from the collage, I’ve chosen My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and Kill Me, Heal Me for our Editor’s Choice group watches. As a matter of interest, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho came in second in the poll, with 83 votes, while Kill Me, Heal Me came in fourth, with 72 votes.
Lots of worthy titles were floated, and as promised, I sifted through all of them, and shortlisted the most popular titles for this poll. Thanks, too, to those of you who shared other regions where shows are available, on top of the ones I mentioned. Super helpful! 😘
Except for Beautiful Mind and Stranger, I’ve seen the other shortlisted dramas, and therefore can personally vouch for their worthiness of your drama hours. 😉
I hope you guys have been having fun with the group watches! I especially appreciate those of you who managed to join both group watches &/or have been active on the Open Threads. Sharing your reactions and your thoughts really makes the experience richer for everyone. Thank you for playing! ❤️
What I’d like to find out from you guys, via this post, is
(a) whether you guys are keen to keep going, with the group watch, and
(b) what you’d like to watch together, if you want to keep going?
So you might remember that I mentioned in my April This Month on Patreon post, that I was considering Scripting Your Destiny as a replacement show for She Would Never Know, for coverage on Patreon on the Early Access Tier (US$5).
Well, as it turns out, I had to make a quick change of plans because even though I really liked what I saw when I checked out the Scripting Your Destiny, I hadn’t realized that each episode was only about 20-ish minutes long, making it more of a short format drama thing, rather than a full-fledged drama. Oops. 😅 As you might have seen from my announcement on my She Would Never Know review, I’ve picked Beyond Evil for coverage on the Early Access Tier instead.
At the same time, my enjoyment of the initial episodes of Scripting Your Destiny did give me a fun little idea, which I hope you guys will like. 😃
If you’ve been following k-ent news of late, you’d probably already know that there has been a spate of bullying accusations leveled against various k-celebs, with each ballooning into its own scandal.
If you’ve been following k-ent news in the last couple of days, you’d also probably already know that Ji Soo has fallen from grace, and in a manner that is very sudden and quite spectacular. Reactions have been varied, but consistently strong. Most people feel a certain way about this, and feel it strongly.
If you haven’t been following k-ent news in the last of couple days and don’t yet know what I’m talking about, well.. buckle up, coz this one’s a bit of a doozy. 😬
First of all, my sincere apologies to any of you who might have been saving your votes for the final day of voting; the poll closed earlier than I intended (at the beginning of 23 February, rather than at the end of 23 February), oops! 🤭 This is my first time using this poll plug-in, so I didn’t realize that that’s how the settings work. When I realized my mistake and tried to extend the poll, I found that I couldn’t. My bad, guys. I promise it won’t happen again! 😅
Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll; Dr. Romantic came out on top, with 136 votes, woot! In second place, While You Were Sleeping came in with 126 votes.
At the same time, while all the voting was going on, my fangirl heart was seriously swayed by all the effusive love for Jang Hyuk that was being poured out on the final Chuno Open Thread – and I couldn’t help but want to rewatch Money Flower, even though it was clearly not going to win the poll.
So.. we will be having not one, but TWO group watches on the site! Surprise..? 😉
