Drama and Movie Guide by Mood – Part 1: Let’s Ugly Cry

What to watch

When I’m in the middle of watching a show I really like, it’s such a fantastic feeling. I can look forward to subsequent episodes with joy, or marathon them if it’s an older show within a couple of intense days. If only I always had such luck. The truth is, this is not normally the way it goes.. at least certainly not recently. Perhaps I’m approaching the dreaded drama burn out, but lately when I scroll through shows to watch I go “Meh, meh, meh..”. Then I look through the movies and, “Well… I don’t really FEEL like that right now”. Now here’s scenario two: I start a show, but can’t get into it, or do get into it, but get bored towards the end despite my initial enthusiasm (or the enthusiasm of other drama watchers). So why is this happening?

Time for the weekend, time for MOVIES!!!


It’s the weekend – Woohoo! I really enjoy watching movies over the weekend, especially if I’m in the need of a mini drama break …it does happen!

The movie recommendations I give are Miss Granny, Koizora and Rough Cut. Miss Granny is super funny, Koizora is a very emotional, tear-jerking romantic Japanese Movie and Rough cut is action packed and has an amazing cast.

Expanding my blog beyond Kdramas

JJ Feild and Keri Russell in Austenland

So in the past year I’ve immersed myself into the world of Kdramas and Korean Movies. I’ve watched a lot, and enjoyed it immensely. In the past few weeks I’ve noticed myself starting to slow down on my obsession. I’m still watching Kdramas, but not daily, and not marathon watching like I previously was. I’ve always enjoyed TV and movies from many different countries (mostly British at the moment). I want to start sharing some of the one’s I’ve enjoyed with you, while I continue to watch and also review Kdramas. I also would like to start an anime/manga section, which has been my intention for some time now.
