After SqueeCapping my first Thai drama (Full House Thai), I’ve decided to try my hand at a Taiwanese drama. My choice? Fall In Love With (Both Of) Me, starring Aaron Yan from the Taiwanese band Fahrenheit, and Tia Li. It’s a delightfully cute romp, where our male lead woos our ingenue as both a cold chaebol, and an awesome dork.
Thank you to all my patient readers waiting on the next recap of “Winter Sonata”. At this rate it may be winter again before I complete, but I am still plugging along!

It was a dark and stormy night. No really, it was a dark and stormy night. A sudden and gusty snowstorm has locked our couple together in the highest area of the resort. On a clear day you can see forever, but what can see in the dark confines of the heart?
Augh!! How do I get myself into these things! There’s two reasons: our Squeecapping readers, and this:
Anyway, with Full House Thai winding down [sob! Mike! Guy! Om-Am!], I think I will have enough time to take over this little crack-crazy gem, since JoAnne unni is feeling NailShopParis vibes, and we never had a chance to recap that crazy ride. So, without further ado, lets dive in!

Now, I know I said I’d take a hiatus from recapping currently-running shows. And with a few guest post bombs here and there, I’ve stuck with it. But then I watched the first episode of Full House, the Thailand version, I fell into it like Alice down the rabbit hole.

As with all my recaps of current shows, the posts are being hosted by our gracious kakashi. Uri JoAnne unni is also onboard, reuniting us as a team yet again! Ten episodes have already been released, so it’s going to take a while to catch up. Just consider it a labor of
March 20th: Completed! Yay. Wait! Completed! [sobs]
