    Hi! I love your blog and I constantly check your watching list. Looking forward to your reviews of the dramas you are watching currently! (Especially Someday or Oneday, I loved that show!)
    PS: I would highly recommend watching The Untamed! It made this lockdown not as terrible for me and I am sure it would brighten your life as well! ^^

      Thanks for enjoying the blog, sydia! 🙂 I do plan to check out Someday Or One Day, when I have some extra time. Right now my hands are full working on the dramas currently on my plate, plus the technical issues that the blog’s been experiencing. 😅

      I’ve had The Untamed recommended to me many times! I will give it another try when I’m in the mood for some xianxia.. I think I overdosed a little bit before, and now don’t find myself in the mood for it. 😝

    I will start out with saying this, I love your blog!!!
    As I have gotten older, I have gotten much more selective with what I watch. Unlike in my hay days where I watched anything and everything. And the lovely part of it all is that when I discovered your blog, I found shows you had rated not so well (which people loved) were also shows I had similarly not liked so much. I had finally found a source that did not follow what the public opinion of a show was and just gave their honest opinion about things which in most cases perfectly matched my tastes. (Thank you so much for unintentionally being my mind twin). Now, your opinions on a show is a solid go to for me before starting anything new.

    P.S. Do give The Untamed a try, you might be surprised. (If you haven’t read the novel, first 3 episodes might be confusing) but do give it a shot when you have time

      Aw, so happy that you love the blog, Abhinanda! ❤️ And how cool, that we seem to have similar tastes in dramas!! Hi5! 😀 Super glad that you found me, and I’m so happy to know that you find the reviews useful! Thanks for the recommendation on The Untamed.. I’ve had that suggested so many times, I ought to give it a 2nd look. I haven’t been in the mood for xianxia for a while, though. I will give it a try when I next find myself ready for some xianxia! 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed it, Joy! I have to confess I haven’t had the time to start on it yet.. but I hope to, after I’ve cleared some space on my drama plate! 🙂

    This is a tip for those who periodically browse for recent comments to KFG’s Currently Watching post.

    There are now five pages worth of comments and replies. Unfortunately — and for reasons outside her control — the oldest page lists first, starting with a comment by Rainbow on December 17, 2012.

    Here’s how to advance quickly from the Joseon era to modern times:

    1. Click the “End” key on your keyboard to jump to the very bottom of the page
    2. Find and click the light blue link for “Newer Comments” to advance to page #2
    3. Repeat those steps four times to advance to the most recent comments

    The good news is that once you make it to page #5 the newest comment will be at the very top.

      Thanks MeriJ! I’m so sorry you guys are having trouble with the blog being glitchy about this. Let me try to take it up with WordPress Help again tomorrow, and see if I can’t get someone to look into this. The last tech I got assumed all my glitchy troubles were because of my expired theme, but now that I’ve changed to a non-expired theme, we’re still having issues. Hopefully we can get this sorted out so that you guys don’t have to acquire a new set of skills just to hang out here! 😝

          Within your WordPress account, there are four places you can tweak how your receive notifications of new comments others have made:

          1. The system-wide default setting is made at Notification Settings/Comments. That’s where you say you want to be notified by email anytime someone “likes” or replies to a comment you’ve made on any WordPress blog.

          2. When you make a comment to a specific post, there’s a box you can check saying you want to be notified by email of any new comment to that post, even if it’s not a reply to one of yours.

          3. If you want to change HOW or WHEN you receive notifications, system-wide, go to Notification Settings/Reader Subscriptions. The options for email notification are: instantly, daily or weekly. If you choose daily or weekly, you can specify when you want them. (If you choose instant, it only works most of the time, but whatever…)

          4. If you want to see ALL new comments for a specific blog, including ones on posts/sections you haven’t commented on yourself and therefore might not care about — go to Notification Settings/Reader Subscriptions/Use the Reader (where “Use the Reader” is light blue font in the first sentence at the top of the page.

          A list of blogs you are following will appear — although for some reason it probably won’t include the ones you actually care about. Weird. So if you don’t see KFG, paste The KFG Verdict’s URL in the search bar that says “Search or enter URL to follow….”

          Add her blog, then open the Settings cog to the far right once it populates and enable the third option: “Email me new comments.” Again, this will be ALL new comments, anywhere on the site, so definitely not the best choice for everyone. (Beez, in your case, this is the setting change you need to undo from earlier in the week.)

    Anyone here watching Was It Love on Netflix? I’ve only watched the trailer and read a review, but it looks pretty good. Six episodes have aired thus far.

    The premise sounds a teeny bit like Love is A Bonus Book — woman in her later 30s with a daughter, frozen out of the job market. Except in this case, she aspires to be a film or K-Drama producer.

    It stars Song Ji-hyo plus four, count em, four male suitors: Son Ho-Jun,Song Jong-Ho, Kim Min-Jun and Koo Ja-Sung.

          This new format is interesting. I find myself not liking that it sends me posts for shows I’m not interested in (easy fix to just delete them though) but I really don’t like that I’m getting comments for shows that I plan to watch but haven’t yet. But then again, I like getting comments like this that reveal parts of the blog that I didn’t even know existed!

            That’s weird? You mean this new theme/template on the blog sends you emails on comments for the whole site, even though you didn’t opt for it? 🧐

              It’s not your new format, it’s changes Beez and I made to our WordPress accounts for how this blog sends notifications. Beez, you changed yours to say you want notification of all comments from this specific blog. So you need to retrace your steps on that. I’ll post instructions in a few minutes.

              @kfangurl – Yup. I wonder if that’s the result of me playing with the settings? Even though I was already subscribed to the blog, it didn’t show up in my subscriptions so I searched and added it. I then selected send me comments “instantly”. I’ll have to find my way back to that part of my WordPress account to see if I did something to cause me to start receiving EVERYthing. I saw someone else said they’re getting it that way to. It was either merij1 or Geo (I think)

                That was MeriJ. He says you can change the settings in your WP account; he mentioned he would post instructions soon, on how to do that. 🙂

                  Got it. I started to not be lazy and try to figure it out on my own but real life is calling. I’ll watch for his instructions (thanks merij1) and if he can’t get to it, when I come back to the blog, I’ll try to figure it out.

    Just finished Hi Bye, Mama and now started Coffee Prince and Come Hug Me. I absoltely loved My Mister. I basically binge watched it. Ops!
    Thanks to Netflix, I have started watching K-drama a couple of years ago and I’m totally amazed by the number of series there. Wow. Anyway… I’m a novice really. Happy to have found your website. Thanks for sharing! 감사합니다

      Welcome to the wonderful world of dramas! 😀 Being a novice is great, coz that means you have so much more to explore! 😀 I hope you’ll find the reviews helpful in figuring out which shows work for you! <3
