[NEWS] Madame Antoine Postponed...whut?

Weirdest news in kdramaland this year


Hellu guys, 
Just thought I should drop by and say hi. I missed you all xD Also, I'm alive, and currently surrounded by piles and piles of books, but it's alll good ~ I think..hope. 
Okay let's get down to business: 
At first I thought I should just wait until december 1st to write a blogpost about this, but I found myself unable to concentrate on my studies because I had so much I wanted to say so I decided just "heck, whatever" I'll just do it.
So yeah, as the title says, Madame Antoine has been postponed to february 2016 when it originally should've started to air this week or so.
The news were sudden and surprising, but what was the biggest surprise was the fact that jTBC didn't just postpone it for the heck of it, but because they decided to re-air a drama called Padam, Padam which originally aired in 2011. So...they're re-airing an old drama and postponed a new project, that was highly anticipated and had quite a good cast ...whut? ._.
I can't be the only one who is surprised by this X_X it sounds so odd...
First of all, why would you even re-air something that has already aired? Like, what's the point? It's not like Korean broadcasting stations are out of kdramas to air, there are tons of them! Goodbye Mr Black  was almost dropped, and instead of giving room for new and fresh stories, they're going to re-air an old story? X_X I mean, hell yeah it's Kim Bum (big fangirl here) but it's still a bit fishy. 
Now some people suspect that this last-minute decision was due to the fact that Madame Antoine wasn't ready to air this week, so this way it'll give the producers more time to prepare, but then I wonder why this wasn't announced. It's nothing to be ashamed of, and it's not the first time a drama has been postponed for like months and months -cough- Descendant of the Sun -cough-, so would couldn't they have just announced it like that instead of saying "yeah Madame Antoine will be pushed back, so that we can re-air Padam Padam" - in the last second? -.-* Nothing against Padam Padam, but I wonder why they picked THAT drama out of like a bunch of others.
I wasn't super anticipating Madame Antoine, so it's not like I'll cry myself to sleep over this, but I just found the case strange.

What do you guys think? Do you find it strange?

[NEWS] Upcoming Rom-Com drama 'Sweet Savage Family' released Trailers!

Marrying the mafia - drama edition is on its way! 



MBC’s upcoming drama Sweet Savage Family finally released it's two hilarious and action-packed trailers! 
Starring Jung Joon Ho (My Neighbor's Wife), Moon Jung Hee (Mama, Hide and Seek), Jung Woong In (Yong-pal), BTOB's Min Hyuk and Girls Day's Minah, the drama is an adaption of the popular comedy film franchise Marrying the Mafia“.

From the looks of the trailers it seems like it'll be one hell of a funny roller coaster ride. I think the cast list looks promising and the drama poster caught my attention xP I'll be watching this one ~
How about you guys? Does this look worth checking out? Do you like the trailers?

[LET'S GET TO KNOW] Omodramaland's favorite bromances'

Let's talk Bromance


Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin from The Heirs

So I recently got a request to write a post of my favorite bromances in dramaland; and it sounds like an awesome idea! Only that....it's quite hard ._. there are just so many good bromances you guys! Dx But I'll do my best try to narrow it to just a couple of them that especially made me fangirl and cry my eyes out. 
First of all, if you're not familiar with the term, Bromance is developed from "brother" + "romance" and is used to describe two (or  sometimes more) male characters who have a very close bond, and who you ship, either as brothers or as lovers/boyfriends. It's also starting to be very popular in the West, so you'll see it more and more in all kinds of TV-shows and movies etc etc. I feel like kdramaland is especially good at making awesome bromances, and hint that something more than just friendship is going on -wink wink-, but depending on your point of views, you can decide if you want to see the hints as something romantic or just continue to ship it as a very close brotherly bond. There are really no set rules when it comes to what a bromance is, it's up to your imagination. I'd say that most dramas have some sort of bromance going on, but it varies in the sense that the bromance might be between supporting characters, or perhaps even two guys fighting over the same girl (which is the case between Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin in The Heirs) or the bromance could pretty much be the main focus of the entire drama, which can be seen in dramas such as School 2013 (between Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk). 

But yeah, in this post I'll talk about my favorite bromances. So without further ado, let's get started ~  
(these are in no particular order because it was already hard enough to just narrow it down so this post doesn't become essay long)



[NEWS] Joo Won Confirmed as Main Lead in a Chinese Drama

One role after the other - Joo Won is going hardcore in 2015


That's right guys! Yong Pal ended just a month ago and Joo Won is already confirmed for a new project, This time he'll take on the lead role as Cheon Xi in the Chinese upcoming drama Love Express.
Nothing has been confirmed about the plot other than that it will be filmed in Shanghai among other places and that it'll star Deng JiajiaZhenyun QiaoShiu Hung Hui, and Monica Mu.

Are you looking forward to more Joo Won before the year ends? :)
I love this actor to death, he's really super talented, but I'm kind of worried that he might be over-working himself. I remember that he did an interview while he was filming Yong Pal and that he confessed that he couldn't sleep and felt extreme pressure for the drama to get good ratings and therefor I would've rather had him rest a bit before taking on a new project this quickly. However, I do understand that he is running out of time before his army enlistment, which is super depressing but it can't be avoided :/ But honestly, I don't really think he should be that worried. He's already claimed a spot in people's top actor list, he's famous in both Korea and Worldwide, especially after his hit drama Bridal Mask. But yeah, kdramaland is getting tougher and tougher competition, especially with new rising actors showing up left and right. So yeah, I'm a bit torn how I feel about this new project. I do want to see him in more dramas but I also don't want him to be dead before the military service even starts T_T Am I the only one who feels this way? Perhaps I'm just being over dramatic, I'm sure he'll be fine. He's a grown up and mature man, he can take care of himself! >_< anyhow, hwaiting on your new drama Joo Won! :D

Announcement 2!

Okay, so I finally fixed the stupid Google+ blog problem X_X
However there are both sad and good news.
Let's start with the sad one (and save the best for last hehe)
The sad news are that all the comments made by a google+ account until now are gone (dunno why, but whatever X_X just leave my poor blog alone google+ I've spent 4 hours today trying to fix this stupid mess Dx)
HOWEVER the good news ~ is that from now on, everyone can comment. I somehow managed to even add a annonymous option, so it's a lot easier to comment from now on.
If you want, feel free to re-write what you wrote on the previous posts, and let's move on xD
Gosh, this sure was stressful but I'm glad it's fixed. So yeah, now it shouldn't be a problem anymore guys!

Thanks for your patience >_<
I'll see you all very very soon ~

Omodramaland's 'Can't Contain My Fangirl Feels' - corner

Sassy Go Go ~ My Current Obsession



So I decided to check out the currently airing drama Sassy Go Go. It was an impulsive pick to be honest, I didn't really think too much about it. I thought the drama would be yet another cheesy cute romance comedy set in a high school setting .....but boy was I wrong. Don't get fooled by the cutie-cute-cute poster, it's not as light hearted as it may seem. I dare say this is the successor to School 2013, but even that would kind of be an understatment. Without spoiling too much of the actual plot, this drama is pretty much what I felt that I needed. It's sad, it's funny, it's gripping; yeah, it's amazeballs.
And just like with every drama we all end up having our OTPs (one true pairing) and ships. There are a lot of potential couples in this drama and I like that a lot. However there are two that I feel like I simply must fangirl and talk about here.
These are in no way spoilers, since it's just my personal opinion so don't be afraid to check out the pictures down below.

Bromance Couple


                                  "I was so afraid that I was going to lose you again" - Kim Yeol

Kim Yeol x Seo Ha Joon. Damn this bromance. This ship hits me right in heart Dx
It's been a while since I've shipped a bromance, and honestly this is one of the most developed and angsty one I've seen in a very long time and I just love it. They're so cute and loyal towards one another and I just feel like these two will stay bros forever, if not....I think I'll probably die a bit inside X_X (If they don't, don't spoil anything, i'm just on ep 5).
Kim Yeol is a cute little hamster (just look at that smile, gosh X_x <3) and Seo Ha Joon is the definition of a smexy badass. They are so different from one another and yet they fit so perfectly together. Gah them feels >_< them feels! Anyone else who ships them? ANYONE? Aren't they perfect?
Okay I'm done. Next up ~

Angsty Couple


                          "Do you think it's cold? It's probably not colder than me" - Kwon Soo Ah

Seo Ha Joon x Kwon Soo Ah. This is probably my ship of this drama and I didn't get the feels until I saw that scene (picture above). In just a matter of seconds that scene became, hands down, my favorite scene in the entire drama so far. I'm sorry I just love angst, I can't help it X'D.
Honestly, I haven't seen a lot of people ship these too but without spoiling too much, I think they kind of fit together. I think that rather than the fact that they look cute together, I think they NEED each other. I just feel like out of all the characters in this drama, these two have a connection, a dark secret that no one else can understand and like I said, I've just seen the first 5 episodes but I really hope that these two will get togehter, or at least be there for one another, like mental and moral support.

I do like other ships like Kim Yeol x Kang Yeon Do and Kang Yeon Do x Ha Dong Jae too, but those two ships that I mentioned above...man it's deep. So so deep! XD
I have to say i love every single character in this drama. So far it's been a straight 10/10 score ride for me and I hope it'll stay like this until the end! Don't think I won't review this drama! I will! It will happen *_* I have so much to say and fangirl about and just ....gaaah! Them feels! xD
Also, N is blowing minds in this drama. I didn't think he could act this well o_o I'm totally falling head over heels for Ha Dong Jae. He's such a cutie-pie and I love his "condition" I still don't know what is actually going on, but it seems deep and angsty so I'm sure I'll love it and feel sorry for the poor guy >_<
Talking about cutie-pies, this hamster is another life ruiner!



Okay I think I've calmed down X_x this post is hella messy, sorry. I just had to write down my feels. Anyone else who feels the same or ship the same ships as me? Feel free to leave a comment down below and tell me who your favorite ships are :D and look forward to the probably super-duper-mega fangirly review of this drama that will be up sometime next week (as soon as it ends, I'll post it. It'll be here. Pronto xD)
