All For One and One for All: The Three Musketeers Distractors’ Cut Style

Have you started TvN‘s Three Musketeers? Well, Ekun and I have taken a look at the first episodes and yep, it’s a keeper. With the promise of three seasons, I say settle in and enjoy the ride— Just don’t try bareback, chaffing is never a good look. Now on to adventures in bromance with your local distractors.

Lore In Stone Cities

Once again, always busy, with eyes glued to the TV, computer, and phone, for all the new shows premiering. This week, I was able to catch the first 2 episodes of The Three Musketeers Starring Lee Jin Wook, Jung Yong Hwa, Yang Dong Geun, Jung Hae In, Seo Hyun Jin, and Yoo In Young. As always, Unnichan is along for the ride as we dissect and discuss what we loved, hated, and look forward to; now that the ground work has been laid and the next episode will hit the ground running!

ExtraKun: I have to start with a fangirl momo… Lee Jin Wook!!!!!!! I think I have seen every single show he has been in post Military Service.  I really love to see him on screen. Isn’t he doing another time traveling drama? Or did I read wrong?

Unnichan: I’m not sure but I have heard murmurings. And he…

OPEN MIC SESSION: Heartstrings

I really was going to try and wait until the end of this drama to write this post, seriously I was, but then, I decided I didn’t want to muddle the entire drama with my specific and pointed words to and for one character in particular Lee (greatest college boyfriend in the world) Shin. Somewhere around episode 8 or 9 I pinned this drama: The Shin Show and I haven’t regretted it one minute since.

Is it virtually impossible for a character to go from mediocre in appeal to becoming the only reason for watching in the course of say, one episode? Absolutely! — at least for me, generally but that definitely changed in this drama and this post is dedicated to telling you why.

Heartstrings: The First 7 Measures

I usually give a Kdrama I’m interested in about 5 episodes before I stop, drop and roll. I don’t necessarily suggest this method but I find that if the drama doesn’t make you want to stick around by the third week, it really isn’t worth it. Now I’m not saying dramas prove to be watching throughout it’s run, however, I can at least pinpoint why I invested my time by that time stamp. Allotting dramas this bit of room helps me to arrange what I think, how I feel and assess why I’m really watching. Therefore, it will be very rare that I ever post about a Korean drama I haven’t seen at least 5 hours of.

You’ve Fallen For Me aka Heartstrings has been airing for a month and just  passed my cut off, so I now feel relatively comfortable to share my thoughts on the drama. I posted about it’s premiere awhile back and though it wasn’t my most anticipated July drama, I was definitely going to take a gander or two. Given the off-screen chemistry of the leading pair and the on-screen sizzle of the second, I was certain this drama at least had one thing going for it.

July Jam(med) Session

After May Madness, July is jamming us with another truckload of prospective dramas, that seem worthy of  a peek or two. There are several dramas being announced or airing before the month is over and you need to be armed with a little info to keep track of them all. Preferably, they’re all major hits but I’m hoping (for me) there will be more that will fall by the wayside much like May.

Here’s a look at the dramas coming our way. Decide for yourself what whets your appetite, ’cause I’ve already chosen mine!

How will you spend July?
