Bought, Borrowed 'n Bagged [163]: K-Drama #F4


BB&B (Bought, Borrowed and Bagged) is a weekly meme, inspired my The Story Siren and Pop Culture Junkie, where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed or bagged (won or gifted) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, on going events and book movie or television news. 

BB&B is an homage Barron's Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning's smash hit series, Fever. 




Bagged
from publishers & authors





Big & Small

Yupp! I've been bitten by K-Pop/Drama. I've been resisting this trend for the longest time, but it seems there's no escaping it. I've been binge-watching Boys Over Flowers for days now. And I'm honestly not surprised as I also got addicted to it's Taiwanese version counterpart, Meteor Garden, more than a decade ago. Both series are based on some Japanese Manga and I guess the plot just works for me, doesn't matter if it's Korean or Japanese. *peace*



Recap

It's a new year and there's a new linky for my humble weekly recap meme. Whether you're a return participant or a new hopper, THANK YOU for joining, your participation is much appreciated. 

Also as this is a laid-back meme, please use your LABEL OR TAG LINKS and not your post links that way you don't have to update your linky every week.

  7. I am not familiar with K-Pop stuff at all, Braine, which is probably a very good thing. I need to stay far away from stuff like that which is definitely addictive. I'm glad you're enjoying it, though.
    Your new books look great, I hope you'll enjoy them :)
    Have a fantastic week and happy reading.

    1. Oh it is. It's kinda cheesy at first, but I'm loving the culture and how weirdly funny some of the antics are.

    1. This is what I get for always being in Netflix

  10. LoL I've never watch Korean television. I have a really hard time with foreign language shows where I have to read the dialog. I end up missing what's going on on the screen. However, I love me some Enlish dubbed anime. ;) That's something that not a lot of people know about. It's not really a secret but it's not something that comes up in conversation unless the other person is also a fan.

    1. I watch Anime once in a while too. My son loves it so I can't help but get curious sometimes. I'm a Naruto fan!

  11. It must be a trend, lol. There are quite a few Korean shows that are on over here, but I avoided them since they looked addictive :P I'm thinking of giving Black Sails a try though, I heard lots of good things... The new books look good, but then on your blog, few things don't :D

    1. Ooh yes Black Sails has an amazing cast too. Malkovich right?

  12. I wish I could remember the K-Drama shows that I watched with my friend. They were fun though.

    Do you watch K-pop videos? They are crazy but fun.

    1. I do sometimes! These stars are triple threats, when I get attached to one, I can't help but look them up and it would alays lead me to their band or music videos lol

  15. You consider Behre's series sci fi? Interesting.

    1. I'm actually confused. When I first read it I tagged it paranormal, then as the novels came out, the tags started getting jumbled and the blurbs were calling it sci-fi. In a way, the last 2.5 weren't paranormal, no supernatural, just full on psychic fun

      Delete
  16. I've not watch K-POP, but yes Boys Over Flowers is a Japanese Manga, which I have read. So a little fun fact which I have not shared to anyone. I LOVE Manga and own lots. I enjoy watching Anime too. ^_^

  18. Did someone say KPOP? Here you go 303 (mostly) KPOP songs in an almost alphabetical playlist for you. There are like 3 bands that are actually japanese but I don't listen to enough Jmusic to create a seperate playlist...

    KPOP bands I really enjoy are Girls Day, Girls Generation, After School, AOA, and EXID.
