Flash Review: The Final Match [Last Match]

I put The Final Match on my watch list mainly because it’s one of the classic grandaddies of Hallyu.

Not only did it take audiences – fangirls, in particular – by storm when it aired in 1994, its presence can still be felt in dramaland nowadays, when, every so often, it gets referenced in dramas. 883 more words

Flash Review

My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga has a very interesting plot. I’m very fascinated by the darker side of life, and the idea of suicide partners was new to me and it intriqued me, since I hadn’t read any other books with this exact theme.

Flash Review: Nice Guy [The Innocent Man]

Although I really do enjoy the occasional well-done melodrama, somehow, revenge melodramas remain steadfastly in the category of “not quite my kinda thing.” To date, I haven’t yet seen a revenge melo that I unequivocally loved. 1,115 more words

Flash Review: The Taste of Curry [Drama Special]

If I had to describe this drama special in just 3 words, they would be: simple; cute; prettyyy.

Unlike most other drama shorts that I check out, this wasn’t something that was recommended to me by friends, and neither was it because I had foreknowledge that an actor I like is in it (Hyun Woo’s in this, but that’s pure coincidence, I swears!) 871 more words

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz was a fantastic read, and the first book I have ever begun and finished the same day.

Unspeakable by Abbie Rushton is a novel full of interesting but realistic characters. It has more than one theme; on one hand it is about the mysterious secrets and happenings that the protagonist experiences – on the the other hand it is of the slow process of a girl falling in love with another girl.

Flash Review: Twenty Years Old [20's]

Twenty Years Old is a little drama special that I’d been meaning to check out for what feels like forever.

I’d heard good things, but there was always something newer and shinier on the drama horizon, and I basically kept getting distracted. 807 more words
