I'm Not A Robot - Last Thoughts

A cute drama about what it means to be human. Life is more than the electronics that are around us. It's the connections we make with each other and taking the chance to trust one another.

I'm Not A Robot was a great drama for the start of 2018. I was a little worried going into the drama but it won me over quickly. Don't worry for those who think this drama is about the robot because it's why more than a human falling in love with a robot. I admit I wasn't able to keep up with this day to day, but that had nothing to do with the drama. In away, I'm kind of glad I got to binge watch the remaining half of the drama. No waiting a week.

The cast was perfect and man I kind wish for more adventures with the group. I want to see what happen to the rest of Professor's Baek Gyun group. Sure they are continuing the work they did from Aji3, but I want to see more.

What other heart warming things has Ji A created? Her heart lights seem to be finding more clients, but I just don't feel like that was enough. Min Kyu's allergy has gotten better as we saw him come back from the army. Has he had a relapse or was Ji A and the rest of the gang the antidote?

I couldn't done without the whole evil uncle. However, the company politics connected Professor Baek Gyun and Min Kyu together with the story which gave a sense of time. Yoo Cheol and Ri Ei could have been written as villainous. Instead, they were able to see the misunderstanding that their parents caused and try to correct their parent's bad behavior. I would like to see Yoo Cheol and Min Kyu reconnect as cousin. They seemed to be very close until evil uncle pulled them apart.

Chae Soo Bin is pretty much on my list of I'll watch anything she does. I hope she isn't gone from dramaland too long, but the girl deserves a nice break after 3 dramas in one year. Yoo Seung Ho did the right thing by picking this drama after the failure of Master of the Mask. He's a great actor and got to showcase his comedy and have fun. I look forward to his next project.

Re-Watch: You're Beautiful

You're Beautiful hasn't changed evening years after the first watch. Sure it's hard to believe Park Shin Hye is actually a guy, but that wasn't the point of the drama. The Hong sisters doesn't shy away from their comments about the entertainment industry, fandom, and music, but they do it was a laugh. The most remediable from You're Beautiful is the OST.

OCN Black

For me, I have to say OCN was one of the best dramas of 2017. It wasn't a normal crime drama with a twist of supernatural elements, but it was a mystery thriller with a tons of twist and turns. The drama isn't completely perfect, but darn it was close. Spoilers are coming ... leave now.

The first few episodes may have come across as confusing but when we learned by the third episodes it wasn't confusing at all as we only knew one perspective of the story. The ball was finally rolling and it wasn't going to stop.

Song Seung Heon was amazing in his double/triple duty. I loved his no-nonsense Grim Reaper who was such a better detective than his counter point of Moo Gang. He played Black with no shame and went full into the roll. Yet, he was able to switch over to the dork-able Moo Gang who might be a horrible detective. 

Once Black found out Moo Gang was his half brother and his heart was in his brother's body, the emotions Seung Heon was about to reach in these last few episodes. My heart was hurting for him as he came to understand he was human along and the horrible crimes that were committed toward him.

Sadly Ha Ram was a flaw in the series and had nothing to do with Go Ara's performance. The problem is with the character as she is suicidal one minute thinking she killed her Oppa and the next saying she'll lived to be an old granny. It was frustrating to see an inconsistent character during a pretty tight story.

Go Ara was wonderful despite the flaws of the character. Her character being able to see death and how people will die is like living half a life. The moment she wants to fight fate, she comes to realizes that her actions have consequences. She's getting the chance to pick and choice who lives and dies. She might save someone who will do an evil deed which will cause more people to die. Go Ara was able to show a silly side of herself but also a serious one too. I love her unconditional love towards Black. Thank goodness the drama gave us a moment of happiness before it all went to choas.

The main mystery was about the tape with a young Soo Wan being raped by a police officer. When we learned the police officer is a man trying to run for president, I couldn't say I was too shock. It was interesting to learn Leo was the man's secret son. I loved the trick the detective group used to entrap the dude. It's just too bad it didn't get to stick.

Finding out Ha Ram was half Grim Reaper was pretty neat. It totally explains her ability to see shadows of Grim Reapers. It was over the top for the drama to had Ha Ram be one of the elements towards Joon's death. There was no reason for Ha Ram to have shot Joon.

Greepy Doc from the hospital is the runaway Grim Reaper Granny. I had wonder if it was Black's missing partner Loser.

Speaking of Loser, he's been Leo all this time. I almost feel like I should go back and rewatch his parts to see if I can notice it. That element totally went over my head.

Moo Gang was going to cover up his mother's crime and brother's death. He also watch Leo dying and did nothing to save him. I felt bad for his soul when he was killed, but after learning about his moment of weakness it makes me wonder what his punishment would be.

The final show down was just bad ass. I was happy that Black didn't hold back on all those men who had not only hurt the woman he loves, but his detective family too. However, I knew the moment he killed, Black's ending was doomed.

Moo Gang's mother's ending was an appropriate ending. If only she could have waited, she wouldn't have had to become a monster. She'll become a Grim Reaper until she pays for her crimes.

Black telling everyone he was going to travel the world after he recovers was just sad and painful. Loser being able to stay in Leo's body if he make sure to protect Ha Ram is the last thing Black can do for her. The moment she finds out she shot Joon is the moment Black makes he choice to cease to exist. He gives Ha Ram the gift she wanted all her life, to just be a normal girl.

It may seem like what was the point of all that we went through, but for me it's just a bittersweet ending. Both had to go through hell before an ending could be given. It's not the ending I wish would happen but it's the ending we need. Ha Ram and Joon are reunited after a lifetime of waiting. What happens after, maybe they get to go to paradise together or try their shoot at life together again.

Announcing 611 - Drama Unnies

Once upon a time in Dramaland in the month of June in the year of 2011, two women (who were then just strangers) both discovered the wonders of Kdramas on two different sides of the same country. They took different paths to lead them to their Kdrama obsessions, but before long they both found themselves ardent connoisseurs of the genre. This passion led them to look for ways to express their love for Kdramas on a broader scale. They each began slaving away over a hot keyboard blogging and making memes to share with all their fellow Kdrama lovers. One day a great Dramaland Emperor by the name of DramaFever introduced the two bloggers and asked them to do a blog together. They had so much fun and worked together so well that an instant friendship was formed. Over the years the bloggers continued to blog together occasionally and cheer each other on from a distance until one day they had a brilliant idea – what if they combined their forces and created memes together? Thus a beautiful alliance and partnership blossomed. Living in LoganLand and AjaVillaBlog joined together to become 611 – named after the month and year when they both found their greatest love, Kdramas.   


Hello chingus, this is our fun and silly way of announcing that rather than create memes independently under our own blog names anymore we’re combining our forces and making memes together as “611”. This will help us cover more dramas and allow us to create fresher memes by challenging each other creatively and encouraging each other when we are not motivated. This will also mean more memes in general and on a regular basis. If you are familiar with both of our memes, you will know that we already have a similar style and have worked a lot together in the past so this should be a very natural partnership. We are looking forward to this new project and will hope you guys support our memes just as you did when we were making them by ourselves!

Weekly Round Up: The Bride of the Water God

Quick recap: Ha Baek has the stones to become the King of the Gods, but he’s having second thoughts because of So Ah. Mura tells So Ah why her family had become servants to the Gods and how this connects to Ha Baek. So Ah begins to tell Ha Baek to go back to where he belongs and he does. Meanwhile, Mura tells Hu Ye to marry So Ah and the break ties with the Gods. Hu Ye becomes So Ah’s knight in armor, but it’s too later because Ha Baek has come back.

Why does it feel like when I talk about this drama I feel like nothing significant every happens? I know things happen but it just doesn’t feel like anything was important to more the plot or characters to matter. The writing seems to be all over the place, but I do believe there is some good stuff from the drama. I just wished the good was more than the bad.

Ha Baek’s curse is important to his character and why he keeps himself detached from love. I felt it a disservice to his character to wait at the last minute to show us his tragic past.  Of course, knowing Ha Baek’s curse also allows us insight on how the servants of the Gods was created too. Again, these should have been included near the beginning of the drama not towards the end. It just feels out of place these plot points.       

I like the OTP, but I just don't feel the emotions I'm suppose too. I knew they like each other, but I could go either way. It wouldn't be the end of the world if they didn't get to together. It's a shame because I don't dishate them, but I also just aren't feeling the feelings for an OTP either.   

I’ll be honest the most interesting character of the whole drama is Hu Ye. He’s more complicated since he’s a demigod. He’s not a god but he not human. I’ve got a case of SLS with him because I want him to find someone to love him. He seems to want to know what it feels like to be wanted but also loved. He’s considered a monster among the Gods and the Humans will too. Lim Ju Hwan is knocking it out of the park. I can’t wait for him to take on a bigger role as the male lead.
