Flower Boy Next Door

What can I say? I’d been looking forward to this show, not knowing what to expect, just that it was from the same people that made “Flower Boy Ramyun Shop” and “Shut Up Flower Boy Band”, which I loved. Then came the casting news — Park Shin Hye, Yoon Si Yoon, Kim Ji Hoon — and I was even more excited to see what they’d do with such a good cast. At Christmas, they gave us teaser video after teaser video, and I began to worry that there was gonna be a letdown after all this buildup.

OKC: Stars Falling From the Sky

31 Dec

Well, we had some interesting results from our first Operation: Kdrama Chat. Pretty much all of us were disappointed with the drama, but we loved being able to discuss it afterward, so we’re gonna do another.

We put up a poll, and the victim winner was Stars Falling From the Sky. I’ve never seen it, but several others have and give it a good recommendation. We have some fun, snarky people in our group, so I think we’ll have an interesting discussion.

Everyone is welcome, so please feel free to join us on our Facebook group!

Thanks to Stephanie at Crazy for Kdrama and Laurie ADGirl for joining me in this adventure 🙂
