Today, I’m pleased to announce that Kun is sharing her drama year!

I’m so pleased that Kun was able to make time to write this post, because our drama tastes overlap enough, and she’s adventurous enough in trying out dramas, that I often feel intrigued by her drama picks, because I haven’t seen the show(s) she’s excited about.

Thanks, Kun, for making the time, and also, for always having my back, and sending me links to things that you think I’ll love. ❤️

I hope you guys enjoy!

Review: First Love: Hatsukoi [Japan]

THE SHORT VERDICT:

This show feels like a very well-done homage to classic melodramas of the early 2000s, boasting characteristics that I would associate with iconic dramas of the era, like Winter Sonata, for example.

The difference is, Show is given a more polished, modern touch, and is also infused with what I feel is an indie movie-esque sensibility.

It’s very thoughtfully conceived and executed, and alongside that sheen of polish, and the general air of restraint, there is oodles of heart, and altogether, this one grabs me, so much.

It honestly feels like the answer to the question, “What would happen if we took 2000s melodrama and gave it a modern makeover, while retaining its essence – and just, overall, made it better?”

Really nicely done.

Today, I’m pleased to announce that Martina is sharing her drama year!

Martina is based in Italy, and while she often says that she’s not confident of her English, I think that she’s got a very interesting way with words; her sentiments are often delivered with a lovely sense of poetry about them, which I think is pretty darn awesome.

I also love that Martina’s a Junho-loving fangirl; I know that I can always count on her to swoon over Junho with me. 😁😍🫠

I hope you guys enjoy!
