When I began this brog — er, blog almost five months ago, I only meant for it to be a dumping site for all the dorama-related craziness in my head. But it’s become increasingly clear that this blog actually has a — dare I say it? — readership. I believe I owe it to my regular readers (now numbering about five! up from three! yay!) to keep you — them — you — abreast of what to expect in the coming weeks and months. Oh, and film reviews may worm their way unannounced in-between drama reviews. List subject to change without prior notice (blogger’s prerogative, yes?).

* To those who read (and actually liked) Parts 1-3 and have been wondering about the finale, sumimasen deshita. When I started writing this… allegory, I had a clear idea how the story would end (actually, I began with the end in mind). Right now I’m a bit stuck in fleshing out certain parts of the finale. Sorry to keep you waiting! Hopefully I’ll get this baby on the road… soon!
