When I heard the first lead pairing for Because This is My First Life, I simply could not accept it. I love Jung So Min so much especially from her recent weekend drama, My Father is Strange. But I was way on top of my head and I just could not picture sweet So Min with Lee Min Ki. I may have judged him by his looks. To me, his rough feature does not fit the rom-com genre. Also, this is my first time watching him as a lead. I was first introduced to him in Shut Up: Flower Boy Band but his presence was too short for me to like or dislike. I have never seen his other works, especially in movies.
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!
I am currently hooked on Lookout aka The Guardians. Seriously, this show is captivating and is worthy of your time. Each episode is like a rollercoaster. The suspense will keep you at the edge of your seat. To be honest, I keep thinking why aren’t many people watching this show. Is it because of the lack of romance? I don’t get it. There is much happiness in watching dramas and romance is one of them but romance can’t give you the satisfaction like a crime/thriller drama could give you. The kickass! One more thing! Lookout has action! And Lee Shi Young is giving us the action! Gold action!
