Historical dramas have always had a special place in my heart, so I made a Tumblr! HERE‘s the link! It’s more geared towards graphics/gifs than actual opinions, though. I will also try to get back into drama reviews, although they’ll be much shorter. A star rating & “afterthoughts” section is about all I can manage with work and trying to find energy for my teaching app.

Quick updates & birthday-wishing

First, the important stuff: I’m not dead! I know I haven’t posted in ages, but I became busy and unmotivated to watch dramas. This has changed, and I am now happily getting close to the end of Ja Myung Go. Just a reminder, this blog only does historical dramas at the moment. However, I do accept guest reviews/thoughts on dramas, so please do not hesitate to email me: tacti_sielu(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Secondly, new layout! I’ve been pretty crazy about After School lately. How crazy? Uh, I have their latest album Bang!, a matching poster, desktop wallpaper, screensaver, and Firefox start page. And I’m currently trying to change my Firefox persona to also be After School. CRAZY. So, enjoy the girls! Maybe it’ll make this place a little more boy-friendly? I know you like legs! You know who you are. ;)

Finally: HAPPY BIRTHDAY GENTLEMAN MIMI! Zhoumi’s birthday was not too long ago on the 19th. He’s on the background of both my personal Twitter account and my Zune. My After School thing is really nothing compared to my obsession with this man.

Bitch, you can't handle this level of sexy.

Please Read!

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who has taken the time to stop by this blog. It’s not a huge blog that gets thousands of comments a day, but I don’t do it for the comments. I do it because dramas are my way of breathing and feeling alive, and they make me happy. And I do it so that the people that do stop by, get a bit of a different flavour of review.

Anyway, I’ll cut straight to the chase: I will be taking a break from modern dramas.

I have been watching 미남이시네요/You’re Beautiful and have realized that my tendency to overthink things and make everything serious gets in the way of watching dramas like this. It’s supposed to be light and fun, but I find myself constantly raging about Hwang Tae Kyung’s verbal and emotional abuse. This drama is popular with middle school students, and it is teaching young men that this behaviour is perfectly acceptable. Meanwhile, young girls are being taught that they must endure such abuse instead of pursuing healthy, stable relationships. [I call this the “Twilight Effect.”]

Once I have finished the show, I will only watch and review saeguk/historical dramas. As these dramas are very long (maybe around 50 episodes each), this blog will see fewer updates. However, I will be accepting guest reviews. If you wish to write a review for a drama, please use the following form:

Movie reviews will continue as normal. Thanks guys!

The girl behind the curtain

L2O is now on Cyworld! Go check me out: http://us.cyworld.com/lovelikeoxygen

It’s a way for other people to find this little blog and for current readers to stay up-to-date on why a series hasn’t been finished, or somewhere you can comment and ask why I’m being such a lazy ass.

And with a guinea pig profile picture, you can’t miss it! I’ll bet you didn’t even know I had a guinea pig. I have four. These are things you would know if you knew me! And now, you just might get that chance! (:

Go on, add me!

New year, new look

You may have noticed that the theme has changed. Don’t be surprised if you come back and find that it’s different than the last time you were here! I’ll be testing out and experimenting with L2O’s new look for the new year. I wanted a header that changed pictures of actors and dramas every time you refreshed, but I admit to scouting out the theme that has as little work as possible attached to it.

I might also be implementing a rating system, and accepting guest reviews, too. (: I want to hear what you guys think!
