Taking stock of May

Eagerly anticipated and now coming to an end. Yes, we’re speaking of the month of May.

In the past four weeks, a slew of new dramas began airing. Have you had a chance to watch all or most of them? If yes, how did the dramas fare? Granted it might be too soon to form a verdict of the last one off the block, namely Miss Ripley, which aired its first episode just yesterday. That’s okay, though, because the following set of polls is all about transient first impressions, not final ones. You could hold off voting for now, or go ahead and vote anyway and come back later (if necessary) to post a comment about changing your mind!

It’s Monday but where’s my Sungkyunkwan Scandal?

Are you like Soon-dol above? Clinging hard and refusing to let go? Wailing your head off because you’re back to hating Mondays?

Well, if it’s any consolation at all, here’s a post-SKKS poll to assuage (or aggravate) the pain somewhat. I call it the SKKS Silly Poll because… well, I hope its silliness will make you giggle a little and forget (momentarily) that Joseon Crack is over! Waaahhhhh!!

Have fun!

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 7

Well, Episode 7 has done what no kdrama has ever done to me: infect me with an atmosphere so joyful I can’t stand not being part of it any longer. So I’m packing my bags, leaving kith and kin, and setting sail for a Joseon college campus. Anyone knows if a slow boat will get me there?

Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 6


This is not a recap. How can I recap anything when I’m tethered to my bed in the emergency ward? Because I kept trying to float out the window, the nurses tied me down and ordered: Behave. Otherwise we’re sending the war minister’s guards after you.

Ha. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but no threat in the world is going to stop me from floating out of my skin. Why? Because I’ve been slayed, that’s why. Slayed by the heaping servings of sweet and stirring that Sungkyunkwan Scandal keeps dishing out, mercilessly. Slayed and yet floating. Doesn’t make sense, right? Well, much of this post will be the incoherent ramblings of a Sungkyunkwan Scandal nutcase, so skip them if you wish and zip to the end where a poll awaits.
