The Three Musketeers #Kdrama Review by [Musings of a Chunkeemonkeeato]


The thing that the drama benefits from is that they’ve got source material to work off of in order to help establish the basic plot, characters and pacing. It’s a story that’s also lasted the ages

Korean Drama Streaming APP review: DRAMOT+


Hello. This is AKIA Talking now talking from Korea. Today, I’ll be doing something new for this blog. Sometime ago, I was contacted by a company, “Chocolabs”, to review their Korean Drama Streaming APP “DRAMOT+” which they have been updating recently. I had pushed it aside with the whole getting settled in to Korea thing. So, now I am finally getting to it.

Oh and I am getting no incentives for doing this review. I am always saying what I want to say.

Hello. This is “AKIA Talking” formerly talked from the US and now talking from Korea. This is a movie review of a Korean movie “Cart”. Yes I know that the title is bad. But the movie is at least not as bad as the title. Oh and I am going to use an “Arial” font today. It is just that kind of day.

What are Korean drama really lacking? : A show about nothing…. (Class 10)

Hello. This is AKIA Talking now from Korea. Here is a million dollar question. What is it that makes you like Korean dramas? For many around here, it is somewhat of a mystery. Well… those people tend to not watch a lot of Korean dramas. There are a huge section of those here. A lot of them do watch U.S. shows though.

Brief impressions of the Korean dramas’ critical community

Hello. This is AKIA Talking now from Korea. While being back in Korea, I have been looking into the Korean drama critical community here which includes blogger who tend to be shlubs like yours truly. And, to be frank, the community here is not that large or considerable.


And this is just some thoughts I scribbled as I am writing another long long editorial.

Cutting into #Kdrama My love from another star


 Hello. This is AKIA Talking… now from Korea. I had done a fan edit of a Korean drama, “I am Legend”, before. I chose that show because I hated it when I watched it first primarily because there were a lot of good stuff ruined by very spotty and typical Korean drama sludge. Here is a link to my review. Also Other stuff below.
  1. Fan Editing: Isn’t it all about the music? “I Am Legend”
I wondered what it would be like if I excised all of the crap and restructured the show to emphasize the best thing about the show. The best thing was the rock band element.   I think I was successful in that although my editing skill level was not great as it was my first attempt. However, the resulting product made me appreciate Korean drama writers’ scene composition ability. Their narrative plot composition ability is another thing.

Kings, Joseon Kings, what are they good for? (Kings, Korea, and Kdrama part 2)

Hello. This is AKIA Talking now from Korea. The Korean drama ,“Secret Door” (2014), which is airing and made me think of 3 things. First, where is the door in the tittle? (LOL) Second, why is there “Veronica  Mars” in this show? Third, what is the position of the king in old Korea? The first two were jokes so I passed that for a review I may do about the show if I ever end up finishing the show. The third question was interesting and thus I am writing an editorial about it.
