Let me insert a caveat here at the beginning: I am not going to delve into the legality (or lack thereof) of streaming vs. downloading; I’m sure any reader of this post will already be familiar with such matters. This isn’t a post that’s intended to convince you that one is better than the other, or that you should do this instead of that. This is simply an explanation of how I choose to watch dramas and why.

Goong was always highly recommended in many Kdrama favorites lists, so I finally sat down and watched it about a year ago. I’d only seen Yoon Eun Hye in Coffee Prince, so it was a bit startling to see her all dolled up and actually acting girly. *Spoilers Ahead * Continue reading
So I’m feeling the Mike He love right now, which means a post in which I talk about his dramas and what I think and it’s basically an excuse to spazz.
I cannot even express how much I’m fangirling over the upcoming Gu Family Book. I just watched the extended trailer and OMG I just…I can’t even… I know a lot of people don’t want to get their hopes up in case the drama tanks, but GFB would have to be seriously bad – I’m talking Fashion King with a gummy baby in the brain bad – to make me not watch it. This is absolutely my kind of show.
I fell behind in my weekly watching of That Winter, the Wind that Blows and just caught up today. Well, almost caught up. I’m waiting for the subs to reach 100% at Viki so I can watch ep 13. Spoilers ahead, so don’t read if you object to such. Continue reading
I know that Dramafever issued an apology and rescinded the DMCA notice to Dramabeans, but this issue isn’t just about DB. DF’s heavy-handed tactics took down blogs with soft subs and recaps of Answer Me 1997 last year…and if I understand correctly, both are covered under fair use. There was no apology issued to Mister X, nor was the DMCA rescinded for his blog.
I did my part by emailing DF and posting a comment to their apology, which to be honest I found a bit lacking. I’ve un-liked DF on facebook and un-followed them on twitter. I only hope the Kdrama community doesn’t forget about this for a long, long time, and that when DF pulls another stunt like this (and they will, you can bet on it) the community with be just as vocal and won’t stand for DF’s behavior.
