I am a big Jung Ryeo Won fan but this drama was not on my radar to watch in the beginning. I started watching more and more lately and I do not want it to take over my life again. Well, Bel said I should watch it because she knew I would love it. And she’s right! Not only I enjoyed watching it, I became a bit obsessed with it! The episodes suck me into it. And this drama keeps getting better and better! Jung Ryeo Won is fabulous here! She nails her character as Prosecutor Ma Yi Deum. She is so awesome. Very flawed yet she made it so real. And this is what we need… A cold-hearted, egoistic, arrogant, clumsy, self-righteous yet flawed female lead! Ma Yi Deum is my current favorite character of all of my current airing drama.
First of all, I must credit kfangurl of The Fangirl Verdict for this watch. I started Girls’ Generation 1979 one night and completely forgotten all about it. Kfangurl’s blog post on the show prompted me to go back and finish it. I can’t believe I missed it completely. The first episode was so awesome. For some reason, it gave me fond memories growing up in the 80s even though the show was based in the year 1979. And I am quite surprised by the lack of attention this show got. I wonder why? I really loved this drama. Yes, it is super chick flick but it was pack with emotions. It reminded me of the Reply series which I adore so, so much!
All I can say is that I am so glad this show is over! Don’t get me wrong, I love the stories. I love the casting. But it feels forever for it to finish even though it is only 16 episodes long. This drama became extremely draggy in the middle. I lost my mood quite often and almost want to abandon it. But I didn’t and I couldn’t. I am a huge fan of the second lead couple and their stories. I think it is extremely rare to watch chaebol kids leave their golden nests behind and became independent on their own. And I also fascinated by madam jjajangmyeon’s story too.
Surprisingly, I am watching sageuk again. I believe Queen for Seven Days is my second one this year. The first one was with my Yoo Seung Ho in Ruler. And I also started Six Flying Dragons early this week with Mari. Trust me, I have more historical dramas to watch. Now that I am no longer allergic to sageuk, I will watch more and more. Be prepared *wink*.
I just finished my krack drama! I hate that I finished it! Now I am having major withdrawal! Seriously, I really did not want The Best Hit to be over! If you have been following my tweets, you will see how much I have tweeted this show. I just couldn’t contain myself. I tried to be discrete but I realized few of the tweets with photos speak a thousand words. I am terrible with spoilers. Because I love spoilers myself *laughs*
It has been awhile since I saw a great Korean rom-com! Fight for My Way is one heart light hearted drama. The edgy style of acting powered with well-diverse characters made this drama feels very real and fresh. This 16 episodes drama maintains its quality consistently. Well, by quality I mean the pace is steady throughout the show. What I love the most are the characters. They are so relatable. It is like watching your friends’ stories on tv. I admit they are not perfect, but it is the beauty of it. They made Fight for My Way entertaining and enjoyable.
I am bored lately. 90% of my dramas are currently airing dramas. To wait every week for new episodes can be frustrating. I decided to marathon Baek Hee Has Returned since it is only 4 episodes long. This short series is funny, cute and fun! The acting is quite stellar! I got totally engrossed in this show. Even my son is!
