We started the year by hauling ourselves off to SM Seaside thinking the crowd would be manageable. I should’ve known better. When bored at home, people these days flock to malls out of habit. Queuing for a cab was a hellish experience (thank goodness for Grab!) not to mention my sister wasn’t feeling well that day due to indigestion. Good thing we managed to squeeze in a few minutes of playtime for Zack who was raring to try Sky Play.
If there’s one thing I’ll miss about the past few days aside from the abundance of food, it would have to be the time we spent watching K-dramas. Oh yes, no Hallmark movies this time. Most of the US shows we follow are slowly returning from winter break while here we are refusing to leave K-drama land. Haha!
I guess we have Descendants of the Sun to thank for that. When we introduced it to Isa around the last quarter of 2016, no one expected it would suck her back into watching Korean dramas. She enjoyed it so much that we began reviewing every Kim Eun-sook penned dramas after starting with A Gentleman’s Dignity (hilarious, I tell you). Currently, aside from Goblin which I’m completely besotted with, we’re halfway into City Hall. The latter’s an interesting take into small-town politics which I’m sure many of us can relate to.
By now we have become experts in what we call Kim Eun-sook tropes which tend to recur in each of her dramas. I may actually blog about it one of these days if I can gather enough material for a list-icle. In the meantime, we’re off to continue our K-drama backlog. (Huhu, sorry #OneChicago!)
