What We’re Watching: April

It’s been a while since I did one of these! There’s a lot happening on the other side of this screen, so my Kdrama time has been cut down dramatically. However, we are still watching three dramas when we can!

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

I gave my first impressions on this drama, and they held strong! I’m still waiting anxiously every week for episodes, and my heart breaks at the thought that we are almost done. The humor in this romcom really made me cackle with glee, and although there are slow parts to the plot (those side characters, though…), I LIVE for the OTP moments when we get them.

My favorite part about this drama is how Min Hyuk reacts to pretty much everything Bong Soon does. He adores her. When she’s mad he wants to squish her, and when she’s upset, he wants to take the pain away. And a lot of times he actually gets overwhelmed with feels, and kind of fangirls about his supergirl. I can’t get enough of that!

It’s safe to say, that this is my favorite, currently-airing drama.

I also went back in time to discover…

I’m almost done with this one! I immediately understood the appeal it has had for so many people, and y’all had me on board with the very first episode! I stalled because of life happenings, but I’m still averaging about two episodes a week, just like Do Bong Soon. It’s the first drama I run to when I have free time!

I’m almost done, and I can’t wait for the OTP to get over their…what is it…6 year spat? Dang that’s a long time to go without talking to each other. Ah, youth.

Other than the actual storyline, which is geniusI have to admit that I laughed the most at all the hilarious Kpop fan girl moments. I relate so hard to that, you guys.

I will definitely give you all a detailed GIF review when I’m done with this little gem!

Last, and…well, yeah, least….

Radiant Office

I gave my first impressions of this drama when it first aired as well. It did pick up a little bit. Just enough to get me to come back this week. But time will tell if I make it all the way through this one. For the most part, my initial thoughts remain the same for this drama–there isn’t a lot of fun or hopeful chemistry to keep me interested. I kind of care about the office drama, but if they don’t give me some OTP soon, I might have to move on.

Sorry, oppa. I do love you.

And that’s it for now! There is a lot of “writer Devon” going on over here, so “Kdrama fanatic Devon” has to take a chill pill just for a little while. Won’t stop me from blogging about what I can manage to watch, though!

Oh, and Cornwall scored us EXO tickets for the end of this month, so I’M FREAKING EXCITED YOU GUYS AND I’LL TOTALLY TAKE PICS AHHHHHH.

See what I mean about the fan girling? Relate. So hard.

Catch you K-Fans later!

K-Love Official Cover Reveal!

gridley-girls3

The day is finally here!

You might have gotten pranked one or two times today, but we mean what we say when we are really, truly showing you our OFFICIAL COVER!

Our cover designer over at Kaye Photography did an incredible job putting this together for us! We had so much fun getting sneak peeks during the photo shoot, and then bouncing around ideas for the graphic design of the cover.

We wanted it to look fun and flirty, with a hint of “Korean drama” essence so it would be familiar to K-fans.

And of course, we want to hear your thoughts!

Without further ado, we present to you…

K-Love!

K-Love Tablet and Books

And here’s a bigger version:

K-Love March Update

1d73cf1eab33c7f244290fb318a7a6cf
Devon and Cornwall. FABULOUUUUSS

Hello K-Fans!

I wanted to make a little update about our AMAZING Kdrama book, K-Love. Since we decided to publish this book on our own back in January, we have been busy bees getting it prepared. It takes a lot of work to get a book from a word document and into your hands, so thank you for being patient with us!

Right now, our manuscript is in the hands of a highly capable editing team. They will fine tune our writing and syntax so the whole thing flows from front cover to back. We want to make sure you get as absorbed in this book as you would a Kdrama you are binge-watching!

Our cover is also in its final stages. It’s taken a little tweaking for that to be just right, but again, we want to make sure we have a flawless product before you present it to you.

Right now, we are looking at a release date in June...maybe July. It all depends on how quickly our editors can smooth everything out.

We will be giving you advance reader copies (or ARC’s) to a handful of lucky bloggers so we can get their thoughts on the story, and help to spread the word! That will happen in April or May if all goes well.

The one date I can give you definitively is a COVER REVEAL on April 1st! It’s no joke. And you’d be a fool to miss it 😉 So make sure you’re subscribed to our blog here to get the update!

As always, please spread the word about our book so that other Asian drama watchers can get hyped up about it! We really want this to be a success so we can write more of them, and make the literary genre K-Rom a worldwide phenomenon!

Thank you so much for following along with us, and have a fabulous weekend!

Introductions are Boring

Introductions are Boring

When I go onto a writer’s blog, there is a little curiosity about who they are and why they decided to write. But for the most part, I really want to know one thing:

CAN YOU ENTERTAIN ME?
So I’ll cut to the chase and tell you yes. Yes we can. 
I’m Devon, and for future reference, I’m the writer in purple so you don’t get me confused with Cornwall. Also, look for the oxford comma; Cornwall doesn’t use that silly, superfluous thing. 
Cornwall and I began writing our current project, K-Love, about a year ago. Because we both have insanely involved lives, it took a long time for the idea to turn into words, which were then slashed and burned and edited nigh to death, which then turned into a coherent book that we now present to you as a project. 
All authors will tell you that they are passionate about their novel, and we are no exception. THIS SHIZ IS LIT, SON.* And because we really believe in the concept, we’re doing everything in our power to take it from draft to shelves so we can share it with readers who will enjoy it. We will catch you up on where we are in the publishing phase of our project in a later post, so for now, here is our not-introduction:
Hi, I’m Devon, and I’ve published two books (both small publisher and self-published because I like variety and torturing my self-esteem), and that was how I learned that being a writer is really, seriously demented, and it takes a certain kind of madness to want to do that for a living. And yet here I am. 
I have a Bachelor’s degree from BYU-I that I don’t technically use, and I’m married, so we can take flirting off the list of shameless tactics I might potentially use to get our book published. Oh, and I won writer of the year in 8th grade, and I won’t shut up about it. 
*I fully embrace the evolution of English vernacular. Unless you’re messing with the oxford comma, and then I’ll have to get snooty. 
I also have a Bachelor’s degree that I don’t use. Fair warning when you get those things.

I fell in love with Lee Min Ho and shortly afterwards EXO, when there were twelve members. I remember when Kris left and then Luhan. I was so distressed. Thank goodness Tao was never going to…NOOOOO! 

I really haven’t recovered but Kdramas are helping. I love them obsessively. They never fail to entertain and addict.

So…K-Love is all about L-O-V-E in the biggest way possible. It’s about loving k-dramas, it’s about romance and fun.

We hope you can’t put it down and that you want more, because we are planning more. Stay tuned!

Cornwall
