Really this whole story boils down to one man’s redemption, all caused by the catalyst of his daughter being his second chance at having a life. It was so much deeper than just a simple man-on-the-run-wrongfully-accused drama. It was so much better than that too, with the first few, admittedly exciting, but also soulless action episodes evolving into an emotional story of love and hope and choices. I LOVED these characters by the end. What an emotional ride! … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Two Weeks.
I adored this Korean drama. It is a soapy, hysterical mess but also so wonderful and so fascinating and it grabs you by the heartstrings and pulls you in deep! … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Baker King, Kim Tak Gu (/ King of Baking, Kim Tak Gu).
Definitely a weird slow, low-budget, dramatic family tear-fest (form 2010) which somehow was nonetheless utterly addictive and lovely. Some characters were shouty and overly hysterical at times but somehow I just thoroughly enjoyed it anyway, it was beautiful and sweet and made me feel so much! … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl.
Pride and Prejudice is a 2014 crime thriller drama, starring Choi Jin-hyuk, Choi Woo-shik and some other people (haha). It was twisty, dark, has a good romance, and a lot of emotion! … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Pride and Prejudice.
TROT LOVERS (also known as LOVERS OF MUSIC) is a 2014 kdrama starring some truly awesome actors, Ji Hyun-Woo, Jung Eun-Ji, Shin Sung-Rok and also Lee Se-Young. It is a music rom-com and is light and fluffy. It isn’t perfect, but gosh that Jung Eun-Ji can sing!!!!! … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Trot Lovers
This show is zany beyond belief, a fluffy thin-as-paper romantic comedy show that is hysterically ridiculous in every way. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Bel Ami / Pretty Man.
I avoided this drama forever because…. well, golf. Yuck. But as it turns out it is a zany, over acted (in a totally cute way) madcap romantic comedy, with some really utterly fun and gorgeous characters and the age old story of an enormous huge bratty rich man and a shouty tiny pint-sized poor girl with debt. And you know what? I adored it! But be warned. It is very silly. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Invincible Lee Pyung Kang
What is a love Patzzi? I dunno. I guess it is a 2002 romcom Kdrama about a girl who lies and a tall handsome dude involved in a lot of weird hijinks. That is what a Love Patzzi is. This drama started off cute and breezy and fun (and really old fashioned), but then unfortunately got a little stagnant and boring about halfway through. It did totally redeem itself by the end though, clawing back all that shameless fluff fun, mainly just because the male lead was so damn awesome. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: My Love Patzzi.
The 2017 Korean drama, BETWEEN LOVERS is an absolute dream of a show, it is slow, moody, atmospheric and just gorgeously shot, and hands down the absolute most romantic drama I have ever seen. And that is saying something. Because most Kdramas are pretty bloody romantic. But yeah, I loved this drama. It really moved my heart. … More KOREAN DRAMA REVIEW: Between Lovers
