amusings is 4!

I was surprised (again) when WordPress sent the notification that amusings is 4 years old. Wow! Time goes fast!

Blog background…
I watch Asian dramas and love them. I started watching when I cut the cord to cable TV. The pluses of Asian dramas – series are short (16-20 episodes) but can pack an emotional punch, any genre you want is available (action, revenge, historical, romantic comedy, etc.), catchy kpop songs (some series OSTs are stellar), and yummy actors – keep me entrenched. There are wonderful drama blogs out there, many which I read. I’ve evolved to “blog as I watch” recaps, series videos, series reviews, and articles that ponder which hot male character I’d date and kiss. This single person blog has enriched me.

The 4th year of blogging has been another enjoyable one.
* Comment section interactions bring a sense of community. I love the passion and insight you have. Your feedback is always appreciated.
* “My Thoughts” recaps allow me to watch more dramas. These recaps take less time as I write a nutshell recap and concentrate on the “My Thoughts” section. I did this style of recap for Lookout, Save Me, Money Flower, etc.

* My Cadre of Cuties (aka favored male stars) keeps growing:
* Jang Hyuk is still number one and KILLED it in Money Flower (I don’t see him slipping anytime soon)
* Ji Chang Wook is off serving his country for his mandatory service but he was cute in My Suspicious Partner. Does anyone kiss better? Other pluses – great smile & body, sweet vibe
* Rain married long time sweet heart Kim Tae Hee in 2017 (link). His pluses – rocking body, stretches himself
* Joo Won was charming in the just-okay My Sassy Girl. His pluses – handsome and he can act
* Eric got married to Na Hye Mi in summer 2017 (link). His pluses – those eyes, I like watching him move.
* Song Joong Ki married his co-star, Song Hye Kyo, from Descendants of the Sun in the fall of 2017 (link)
* Lee Joon Gi was severely underutilized in Criminal Minds.
* Gong Yoo, Goblin, need I say more? His 2018 interview in Elle Korea captured in two blogs posts (post 1, post 2)
* Jung Il Woo with the upcoming kdrama High-End Crush. One plus is his darling lop sided smile.
2017 additions
* Woo Do Hwan, one of the new “it” actors. He captured me in Save Me, held his own with Yoo Ji Tae in Mad Dog, and is the star in the currently airing Great Seducer.
* Yoo Ah In, Chicago Typewriter, a spectacular actor and yummy man to look at. The first drama I ever blogged was my Secret Love Affair which starred Yoo Ah In.
* Lee Min Ho, Boys Over Flowers was my first kdrama. I’m a fan but hadn’t had the pleasure of blogging a series with him in it until Legend of the Blue Sea. While the story wasn’t perfect, Lee Min Ho was terrific and left no doubt that he is a star.

Here’s my guys:

Here’s to the next year of amusings!

    Congratulations! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻


    • Thank you! Looking forward to the new Jang Hyuk series? Do you think the title “Greasy Melo” leaves something to be desired?

          off topic but has anyone else seem Love Cells? Jang Hyuk plays the neighborhood guru-ahjusshi who so far is always shown working the “wooden dummy” (the thing Dae gil worked out with in Chuno). Each episode is about 7-10 minutes long on Drama Fever.

            I did! Only for him. I found him super cute and the drama very silly but bearable (just to be able to see him)


            • Beez says:

              I’m watching it as I do short walks on my treadmill. I love seeing JH AND he’s doing what I love to see him do with his hands. But also the lead actress is on my short list of K-actresses who don’t annoy me and/or isn’t bland.


          • Jane Tilly says:

            Drama Fan hit the nail on the head, a VERY silly drama, but short enough to endure.

            Hyukie also had a very short cameo riding a leg steered segue in the first episode of “The Best Hit” which stars the delightful Yoon Shi Yoon, Kim Min Jae (Se Joo in the Great Seducer) and Lee Se Young (Bu Ja, the zombie from Hwayugi).

    🎊Happy 🎂 Birthday🎁 Amusings🎉! I’ve been a fan since I discovered KJT’s blog just over 2 years ago when I googled Merchant of Gaekju trying to figure out what in the world was going on.

    I 💖 KJT’s recaps, including the newly added nutshell recaps, video recaps, supplemental articles, such as “Would I Date Him?” and the opportunity to connect KJT Crew (that’s YOU!) about all thing Kdrama❣️

    Thanks KJT❗ Here’s to many more years❣️


  5. Beez says:


    Wow, kjt. Next year you’ll have to give us the rundown on how your blog expanded. Like does WordPress provide you with how many followers or views or something like that.

    Thanks for all the great recaps, reviews, and thought-caps!


  6. Kay says:

    Congratulations KJT! Love your recaps and all the work you put into your blog. I wish you another wonderful year ahead! 🙂

    Congratulations on your 4 year anniversary! I really enjoy your blog and look forward to reading your posts. Lots of great summary and analysis both in posts and from the community in comments section. Long may you continue! 🙂

    My bad, I wrote SEGUE which is an instransative verb meaning to make an uninterrupted transition from one thing you another.

    I meant Segway (pronounced the same way) which is a two-wheeled form of personal transportation. Think Paul Blart, Mall Cop.

    The latest models, like Hyukie used, offer hands free control:


  10. […] am I watching this series? Jung Il Woo is the lead. He’s in my cadre of cuties (link) whose dramas I […]
