Itaewon Class is Absolutely Electrifying!

This is a review of episode 1-4 of Itaewon Class, or 이태원 클라쓰 kdrama currently airing on Netflix.

So a few days ago, I finally got Netflix back after months of hiatus. Occasionally I like to just put my subscription on hold and watch other outlets and media. When I’m ready, or when a new season of a series I enjoy is about to premiere I rejoin.

This was one such case.

Should You Watch One Spring Night?

Is One Spring Night a Netflix Kdrama worth watching? Or is the forced love triangle between Yoo Ji Ho, Lee Jung In, and Kwon Ki Seok too much to bear?

I’ve been watching and consuming a lot of dark media, as of late. I don’t know what it is, but summer brings out the urge within to explore the creepy, or debased denizens of society.

My Husband Won’t Fit Netflix Review

This is a review meant to start a discussion concerning the Netflix Jdrama My Husband Won’t Fit.

Every time it crosses my mind, I am confused by two fully grown, adult people’s chosen way of life. I mean, those in this world can live however they wish but cultural differences aside, it completely makes no sense to needlessly suffer.

Especially with the revelation that this may have been a biopic, my opinion on these events is further cemented – dramatized or not.

The Hero’s Journey in Animation – The Dragon Prince S1 Review

This is a review of Netflix’s The Dragon Prince, season one.

I’d been meaning to watch this for a while now. I should have had this review completed back when The Dragon Prince came to AFNYCC, but alas – sometimes the things we intend are just not so.

When I heard that season two would premiere on Netflix February 15th, I knew I had to get at it.

And boy, it did not disappoint.

The Dragon Prince takes place in the far off lands of Xadia, where magic rules within six primordial sources. Or at least, it did until one human eons ago decided to create a new energy source: dark magic. The mage gone rogue is implied to have ruined the natural balance for all, causing the Elven citizens along with other magical folks to split the kingdom.

In the latest schism, the dragon guardian of the border had its heir murdered. As this creature only hatches once every thousand years, the magical kingdom seeks revenge on the human king and his heir – Ezran.

This is where our story begins.

The Turbulent History of Avatar the Last Airbender’s Fandom

Does the Avatar the Last Airbender fandom have a complicated history with adaptations not heavily supervised under direction of the animated series co-creators?

This article has been updated for 2022.

Although Avatar: the Last Airbender is a much-loved American animated series, it hasn’t always had the smoothest run during its production.

Are chaotic remakes and adaptations an ongoing pattern, or a result of the co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino’s influence continually being swept away from the show?

A Crime Drama with STRONG Female Leads | LIVE | Kdrama Review

For the Hongil Division in Seoul, maintaining work-life balance isn’t easy. Thankfully, this Korean drama on Netflix seamlessly juggles an ensemble of characters problems in a way that doesn’t burn you out. This is a review of one of the best crime kdrama of 2018, LIVE!

I caught this one a few months back when it was trending on Netflix. Live, Laibeu or 라이브 is a 2018 South Korean Drama. It follows a squad of police officers who defend the crime-laden Hongil district while also maintaining personal lives.

I didn’t know what to expect when coming into this drama.  I wasn’t even sure if it was pronounced like “Saturday Night Live” or “We all live” live. Either way, it turned out to be a solid story in the vein of a recent office drama I watched.
