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!
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!
K-drama fans, there’s a new release on our Netflix screens – and Aussie fans, this includes us! Romance is a Bonus Book just started airing in Korea and it looks like we will be getting episodes just one day later than Korean viewers.
I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of this drama. As an editor and book nerd, anything set in a publishing house immediately draws me in, and Romance is a Bonus Book didn’t disappoint. I’ll be recapping the episodes weekly. So spoilers ahead, and let’s dive in!

“Every small town has a story, but my hometown has a legend.” These are the opening words of Roswell, New Mexico, the 2019 reboot of the 1999 TV series Roswell. Just like the original, it begins with narration from the female lead. But unlike her predecessor Liz Parker, Liz Ortecho doesn’t journal. The two shows will have similarities but Roswell, New Mexico will be more closely linked to the book series Roswell High. As a big fan of both the book series and the original TV series, here are my thoughts on the reboot.
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!
They don’t make game shows like they did in the ’90s. Which is probably a good thing. Back then safety wasn’t a top priority and political correctness was an afterthought. Still, it was entertaining!
