15 K-Drama Dream Pairings: Secondary Couples That Deserve OTP Status

[Specially written for Soompi’s 15th Anniversary. Thanks a lot, Susan! ;)]

Hello! I am muchadoboutlove, a blogger at the talking cupboard. I’ve been an avid drama watcher since I was young, thanks to my father. Korean drama is my latest obsession and the blog was created to become my drama watching diary. Soompi is one of the earliest sites I frequented when I first got my very own internet connection  and it’s the first forum site I’ve ever registered with under the name kaeruchan (that is my nickname back in secondary school). It’s not too much to say that I got to learn so many things and meet amazing people through the wonderful site that is Soompi. For the 15th anniversary of Soompi, I feel so honoured and flattered to be given this opportunity to write for Soompi.

Five Fingers: New Teasers

After being silent without any news the drama for a while, SBS finally gave us a new teaser for Five Fingers yesterday. This one shows a darker tone of the drama, although the whole ordeal is still a big mystery to me.

There’s another teaser, probably aired before this. It’s pretty much the same with the one above, but with different starting scenes.

Since A Gentleman’s Dignity will end tonight, it’s been confirmed that Five Fingers will have its first episode premiere on August 18th, as stated in the teasers. Let the countdown begin…and we only have 6 days to go till the day!
