Korean Drama Recs: the Sticky Post

I've decided to start keeping a post of my recs for Korean dramas to help you figure out what you might want to watch. This won't be a list of all the dramas I watch, just the ones that I think are good enough that other people should watch them too. I'll be updating it as I find new ones, and I'll be making this a sticky post within the next few days. I hope it can lead you on your way to loving Korean TV dramas!

At the moment, all of the listed dramas are available on dramafever and/or hulu. Dramafever officially licenses these dramas, so if you watch there (or on hulu) you are NOT participating in piracy--you're getting things straight from the source. In the future, there might be some dramas that aren't available on those sites (for instance, I've got Capital Scandal on my harddrive at the moment and Resurrection/Rebirth currently torrenting, and I expect to add both of them to this list) and I know that those sites aren't available to all of my friends, so you can PM me if you're trying to find something you don't have access to. I'll try to help you out, though I make no promises.dramas here )

fic: kiss me like they do on the emergency broadcast system

i have hit the point of "screw it, i'll just post it" with this fic, so here it is. also i felt strangely dirty writing this idk.

Title: kiss me like they do on the emergency broadcast system
Fandom: Kpop: Infinite
Characters/Pairings: Sungyeol/Woohyun
Rating: NC-17
A/N: I have been obsessed with this fic for years, and while I LOVE the way it ends, I guess the Wooyeol shipper in me wanted more in this verse, so here is a(n authorized, since the writer seems to have left fandom and I can't get in touch) sequel to someone else's fic.
Summary: It's too late: they've both already fallen, and now it's just a matter of facing it.

I need to find a new job. I've been saying this the entire time I've had this job, but now they're completely overhauling everything, using a new software system, etc. and they're moving me to a department I do not want to be in (I SPECIFICALLY SAID I DIDN'T WANT TO BE IN THE ONE THAT MAKES ALL THE PHONE CALLS) and so I really need to start finding something else. Maybe somewhere in a new place. But either way: something else.

So if any of y'all have tips for me not having some sort of breakdown while I jobsearch since I find it so completely overwhelming, I'd love to hear them.

Also I have my first chigger bite of the year. I don't know how I managed to go this long without getting any, but UGH CHIGGERS.

it's been a while since i've done a tv post

Okay, so I still say the writing for The 100 started out really bad...but somewhere along the line it got better and by the end of the season I ended up enthralled. So come shout feelings at me and tell me what fic to read and tell me when the next season will be back. Random thoughts behind the spoiler cut.

+ At the beginning I felt like they were overwriting Octavia but she ended up becoming my bb girl

+ Also Raven. I sometimes feel like they push the sassy girl a liiiitle too far, but they did end up rounding her out more in the second half of the season so now I love her and want her and Clarke to be bffs and stop being awkward with each other over a bland guy

+ Also I think I do like Clarke, especially because I feel like she blamed herself for other people's choices less in the second half of the show

+ Bellamy gets to join my list of Obligatory Psychotic Jackasses That I Remain Fond of Even Though They're Kind of Terrible. List includes the usual suspects like Spike and Logan Echolls

+ Bellamy and Octavia sibling feelings, thank you writers

+ Octavia/Lincoln is the ship I am most invested in, so I was giddy when he ran away with her in the finale

+ Still not sure if I ship Clarke/Bellamy or if I just want them to be competent leader marrieds all the time without ever becoming romantic? I do know that HE FELL IN LOVE WITH HER WHEN SHE KILLED ATOM LIKE WHAT THE HELL???? And he sometimes looks at her with awe in a way that reminds me of like Buffy/Spike Veronica/Logan where the guy is the besotted one and in love with the lady's vicious side. I'm saying I think there's potential shippage there

+ But honestly I think the solution to everything is Bellamy/Clarke/Finn/Raven OT4. Like the ladies just share the dudes and then also end up falling in love with each other and everything's awesome

+ I can't figure out why I still don't care about Finn even though he was the one trying to make actually moral decisions in the second half of the season. I think something about the actor must not work for me? Because I feel like he'd normally be my moral baby?


+ Ellen Tigh, I miss your scheming face already

+ And I wish they hadn't killed of Charlotte so quick because MURDER BABY was interesting and also I had a soft spot for her interactions with Bellamy

+ What exactly are the Reapers? Slightly mutated humans? When they found that weird skull in the pilot, was that a Reaper skull? AND ARE THEY CANNIBALS WHO EAT PEOPLE ALIVE?

+ Not sure how I feel about the fact that apparently the Mountain Men have been hanging out with civilization all along. And why is Anya so convinced they want to kill everyone?

+ Like, I just am not sure how I'll feel about next season because I basically started watching the show for the post-apocalyptic survivalist elements because that is my JAM especially when it's teenagers in such an environment. If things get too "civilized" in the second season I'm gonna be sad.

+ Has anybody read the book and is it good?
