K-drama Recap: Romance is a Bonus Book ep 7 and 8

Kdrama

Here’s what I’m hoping for in this week’s episodes of Romance is a Bonus Book: more jealous Eun-ho, some realisation from Dan-i that she’s in love with Eun-ho, and some sort of confirmation that Seo-jun is either a creep or a nice guy. Regarding Seo-jun, I’ll take either possibility – I just want to know either way. So, without further ado, let’s get into this week’s episodes. Spoilers ahead!

Well. Having seen episode 6, I’d say episode 5 almost qualifies as a ‘filler’ episode – where nothing much really happens because there’s going to be some big reveals in the following episode. And reveals there were! Let’s dive in to this week’s recap. Remember: spoilers are ahead!

K-drama Recap: Romance is a Bonus Book ep 3 and 4

Kdrama

I’ve got to say this show is making me want to wrap myself in chunky knitwear, curl up with a book for a week and eat kimchi stew. Anyone else? I’m in Australia where we’ve just come out of a heatwave (so knitwear isn’t really appropriate), and while I might have access to books all day, I certainly don’t know how to make kimchi stew. Anyway, enough about me and what this show is doing to me. Let’s dive into episodes 3 and 4 of Romance is a Bonus Book. Beware: spoilers ahead!

The Best K-dramas on Netflix

K-drama

Here at Cactus Pop we cannot get enough of binge-watching dramas on Netflix. And following on from our telenovela addiction, comes our K-drama addiction! Korean dramas are practically perfect. They’re generally about 16 episodes long – perfect binge-watching length and don’t drag out the plot too much. They have the romance factor turned up to the maximum. And most have a pretty killer soundtrack. Plus if you’re into K-pop like we are, if there isn’t at least one K-pop star in the cast, you can bet there’s going to be one on the soundtrack. So, here’s our favourites so far!
