Healer: A Short Review

14 06 2015

by: Raine


I’m not exaggerating when I say, “I love Healer“. I watched it two times in a row, got Lil’ Raine addicted, and now I’m writing about it. I might have to watch it again – for research reasons, of course. This show has the “it” factor, a special something that can’t quite be explained. I can, of course, attempt to do so and I will, but it won’t be easy. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Alive!

31 05 2015

Hello world! I greet you after seven months of radio silence and with my intention to return blogging. For my absence I ask your forgiveness and your understanding. I will tell you my long, sad story of why I neglected dramaland and the Dichotomy, and my plan for my return.

Hello everyone. How have your ventures into dramaland been this week?

If I’m not caught up to where you are, please indicate that you are going to give a spoiler so I can skip over it until I’m caught up. I will, however, give spoilers up to the episodes I’ve seen.

The past few months have been harrowing and I think I’ve made it out the other side. With the hiatus under my belt, I’d like to get back to the Dichotomy and get blogging. Although I haven’t been into news much lately, I have heard a few tidbits here and there. I’ve managed to keep up with a few shows thanks to my work for Hancinema. I’m working on a few blog series for you all concerning K-drama and K-pop…w00t!

As for today, Brother Raine has come for a visit and he greets you from the comfort of the sofa!

What did you all think of this week’s K-drama? And what are you watching? On my docket:

  1. Temptation
  2. Fated to Love You
  3. Glorious Day
  4. Joseon Gunman.

Twitter has informed me that I need to get on a few more dramas…plus TAEMIN’S SOLO DEBUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahem, enough of this update. Onto important things…like…naps…
