About this blog
So, why blog? After spending the last seven years slumming it in various forums and message boards, and leaving behind a trail of desultory musings and mindless rants (and on good days, a coherent review or two, yay), I came to the realization that I needed some sort of repository for all my cathartic compositions, a permanent home for these bastard offspring of my “reedeeekulus obsehhssion” (to quote Ewan MacGregor’s dad from Moulin Rouge!) with Korean/Japanese drama and film. The answer came to me in a rare flash of inspiration: “Fer crayin’ ou’ loud, just fraykin’ BLOG now, will ye?” –Said my friends deep inside the earth, whom I dare not disobey. So, blogging it is.
This is NOT a news and/or information site, although my Blogroll will gladly direct you to some excellent resource sites for all things K-Ent and J-Ent. (And I don’t speak Korean or Nihonggo, by the way. Like most of you, I remain at the mercy of the translators and subbers, may they live forever, lol.) All you’ll find here are my film and drama reviews… and perchance, a stray piece or two on J-Pop boy bands and other… guilty pleasures, yesss?
The views and opinions expressed in this blog are my own, except for those posted by an invited guest reviewer. I try to be as honest as possible when “writing stuff,” and so I welcome honest comments and reactions from those unsuspecting chumps who have wandered into this blog and viewed all its vile, virulent, vociferous verbiage. (Oh, I guess that would include YOU, heh heh.) At any rate, I hope you have fun browsing my reviews, for whatever they’re worth.
Added 5 Nov. 2009:
The original blog title was “The Good, the Bad, and the WTF!!!”, a pun on the 2008 Korean film “The Good, the Bad, the Weird,” which itself was a sly allusion to the old spaghetti western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” — as you all probably know. But it seems that there are other like-minded netizens in the blogosphere (damn you, Carl Jung and your collective unconscious!!! damn you!!! *shakes fist at night sky*). Abort mission. *sigh*
So I’m changing my blog’s title to “The Little Dorama Girl.” (Though I’m not little anymore–lest you think I’m this ten-year-old Hey! Say! JUMP fangirl who blogs furtively from Mummy’s laptop during homework breaks. Noooo. But I do have a drum… several, actually.)
