Biggest news first – launch of a new drama-watching site!!!! Legal, with big screens, english subs, and episodes which aren’t divided into a thousand parts!! It’s only here in the U.S. though – sorry, all you who live in other countries 😦 Man, I am so excited and pleased though – I LOVE the fact that they’re finally catering to/reaching out the US audience. YAY for all the other romantics(and Americans in spite of everything ARE romantics at heart) catching my fever!
I already signed up and am now impatiently waiting them to let me/everyone else in.
