Update

I know that Dramafever issued an apology and rescinded the DMCA notice to Dramabeans, but this issue isn’t just about DB.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  There was no apology issued to Mister X, nor was the DMCA rescinded for his blog.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.

I am no longer supporting DramaFever in any way.  Here’s why: Dramabeans gets a DMCA because of screencaps

I’ve remove the link to their site and I will not be streaming dramas on their site anymore.

Sam Soon delivers juk to Jin Heon. I wish she had dumped it on his head.

Sickness in my family usually means that my mom will make a fast-and-dirty version of chicken soup.  Rice, barley, canned chicken, dried vegetable flakes…it may sound like a pathetic excuse for chicken soup but it is actually quite good.  And it’s a heck of a lot easier and faster to make than from scratch.

During a recent bout with stomach upset, my mom instructed me to make some soup, but to cook the rice a lot longer so that it fell apart…which put me in a mindset to try juk, the Korean version of rice porridge. Continue reading

My Little Bride (K-movie, 2004)

My Little Bride

I recently read a review of this movie on another blog and it spurred me to check it out for myself.  I was quite delighted with it; it was sweet and funny and an easy watch.

The only other drama I’ve seen Moon Geun Young in was Marry Me, Mary.  We won’t talk about that drama.  It hasn’t been that long since I watched Attic Cat, so it was a nice surprise to see Kim Rae Won playing the lead.

If I have any complaint, it’s that I wish that I could un-see the last scene where they had MGY trying to look and act like an older permed, loud-mouthed, brash ajumma…
