Currently Watching: Miss Hammurabi

bKQzef

I unexpectedly started Miss Hammurabi before my trip and I am now behind in this drama. Since it has ended, I could just marathon the remaining 5 episodes when I reached home this weekend. Initially, I wasn’t planning on watching this drama because of Go Ara. Again, my love hate relationship with her acting cringe me. Since she did (tiny) well in Black, I thought I should give her another chance. Besides, Infinite L is in it. He did well in Master of the Mask, I would not want to miss watching him again. And fair enough, his acting continues to improve. Perhaps, acting is his future career. Who knows, right?

Currently Watching: Are You Human Too?

Sigh, despite my busy schedule, I managed to start another new drama again! I want to kick my butt but that gotta hurt, right? *laughs* I can’t help it, though. Besides, it’s Seo Kang Joon. I can’t missed this cutie pie. On top of that, Lee Joon Hyuk is back! I feel like winning a lottery seeing him twice in three months! Also, Gong Seung Yeon is in this drama. Another talented cutie pie. I enjoyed her so much.

Currently Watching: Lawless Lawyer

All I can say is… wow!!! Seriously, one of the best Korean dramas I have seen this year! The level of intensity is awesome. I had a blast watching Switch which employed similar style – laws and action. While Switch focused from the prosecutors’ angle, Lawless Lawyer is, of course, from the lawyers perspective. The music is upbeat and strong. The plot is engaging and intense. The pacing is perfect. The acting is superb. The villains are effing good!!! I really need Choi Min Soo and Lee Hye Young in life! Why didn’t anyone think of casting these two together before?

Currently Watching: What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?

Initially, I was not planning on watching this drama. I know! I sounded super stupid for saying that. But because of my crazy travels, I have little faith in keeping up with all new dramas and especially popular dramas like Are You Human Too?, Miss Hammurabi, Come and Hug Me, What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?, and Life on Mars. But guess what? I managed to squeeze my precious hours for these dramas! Yeah, I am crazy! I just don’t care at this point. I need a stress relief and dramas are my getaway to escape my stress.

Currently Watching: Suits (Korea)

Have you seen the original Suits? I have not since I do not have a cable and not a huge fan of English/American dramas. However, I jump immediately into this drama knowing that it is a remake. The Koreans did a fantastic job with The Good Wife and I expect nothing less with Suits. And my verdict so far? Bloody good! I also have heard that the Korean version is as good as the original. A few have dropped the show though because they were disgusted by Go Sung Hee’s character, Kim Ji Na. I know I do not want a love line in this show but a fling does no harm, right? *wink*

Currently Watching: Switch – Change the World

I seriously cannot quit watching Switch! This drama is really my current crack! It is so much fun and entertaining watching Jang Geun Seuk managing two roles. Just like Nice Witch, Jang Geun Seuk plays two roles – as a flamboyant con man and as an uptight prosecutor. He really is so good at switching roles. I am amazed by the way he did it. It does feel like I am watching two different people before my eyes! The story is so fun and exciting! I really love con- artists storyboard. When you almost figure things out, the bad guy is a step ahead of you or the conman is a step of you. The constant guessing on who does what and when is so thrilling!

Currently Watching: Pretty Noona Buys Me Food

Yeah, I am here for Jung Hae In and Son Ye Jin. For the romance. For the heart flutter. For the cuteness. It is quite unusual for jTBC to produce a romance drama and I knew this is a must watch. At least it is for me. And this romance drama is a bit different than others. No cliches. No rich girl poor man OR rich man poor girl agenda here. The love is pure raw. The directing and acting are extremely balanced, casual and natural. They made this show with no Kdrama in mind. I like it.
