Currently Watching: Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung

dd1Ezf

Somehow, I feel super relieved to watch another period drama. I don’t know why but I’m starting to get addicted to sageuk genre. Right before Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung, I was watching the Nokdu Flower. Though Rookie is less political than Nokdu, the fact that it is a period drama was enough to get me going. I know I will be adding more sageuk dramas once Rookie ends. In fact, I already have one in mind. Be on the lookout for my review, okay?

Just Dropped: Different Dreams

40Rqrf

Yeah, Different Dreams and I have different dreams. I don’t see it eye to eye with this show anymore. I try my best to give it another chance but I just couldn’t. I’m not sure what it is that makes me lose hope. I get bored most of the time. Every time I see an opportunity for a story to reach climax, it did no go the way I wanted it to be. I get deflated too many times. Even though the story is based on true event and with some true real characters, the stupidity in some scenes got me frustrated. I feel that the show could have been better told. And better direct.

Just Watched: Spring turns to Spring

Oxnqkf

I completed Spring turns to Spring last week but did not get a chance to blog it until today. I would like to blame on my real life but it is not true. Honestly, I have been very busy marathoning Game of Thrones. I just started season 7 and hope I complete it by next week. Back to Spring turns to Spring, I am surprised that there are not many people watching it. I wonder why… the premise is typical yet interesting. The drama is super hilarious. Of course, some part did not make any sense but it is nothing new in kdrama land, right?

Currently Watching: I Am Not A Robot

It is a romcom! My boy in a rom-com! So excited when the news broke. I started to miss him terribly. I really enjoyed watching him in Ruler – Master of the Mask. He was phenomenal as a king. It was his greatest drama since his comeback from his military service and I could not be more proud of his choice.  Thankfully, I do not have to wait so long to see him back on my screen! So happy that he is in I Am Not A Robot. A character so cute that I want to squeeze the life of him! Wait, no… I still want him to live! *laughs* Especially when his next drama is with Kim So Hyun again!

Currently Watching: Money Flower

Where do I even begin with Money Flower? It is hard to express my feelings in words. Money Flower is the most intriguing, captivating and chilling drama of the year! This drama is exceptionally well written and most definitely, well acted by Jang Hyuk, Lee Mi Sook, Park Se Young and Jang Seung Jo. I am a fan of Jang Hyuk and his last work, Voice, was a total flop. Not because of him but of how chaotic the drama was written. It was hard to like the show. It had so much potential… tsk tsk tsk.

Currently Watching: Borg Mom

W1wDpf

This rare gem is definitely not a popular pick among Kdrama watchers. I only saw few people on my Tlist. Too bad because for me, Borg Mom is sort of my daily drama fix. Only shorter. 12 episodes short. But it is no daily drama, it feels very sitcom-ish. It is pretty funny. Definitely a show that gets me excited these days. The best of all is Park Han Byul. I first saw her in Freeze but her role was not very memorable. This is my first time watching her as a lead.

Currently Watching: Shopping King Louie

The last time I saw Seo In Guk, his drama High School King of Savvy received critical reviews. I mean, a teen who fell in love with a much older woman, definitely screams protest from all around. But to be on the fair side, she behaved like a high school kid, too. I enjoyed the drama for the most part and took the issue lightly. After all, it was only a drama and the ending was satisfying. I missed watching his I Remember You but I will certainly add this into my next to watch drama.

Back to Shopping King Louie, I was not planning on watching it. It got great reviews and to be honest, I was trying to find an alternative to Jealousy Incarnate. The show infuriates me with the tug-n-pull plots between the OTPs. Thank goodness Shopping King Louie isn’t like that. In fact, this show is so refreshing to watch even though it is quite predictable. Or not. You know me, I love to be surprised and pretend I know nothing *laughs*. Plus, I love amnesia. Not on me, of course!

Yes, amnesia is the main topic in this drama. Louie is the second generation chaebol but since his parents’ passing, his halmeoni placed her precious grandson far, far away from home. In Spain, to be exact. In a giant mansion. With maids and one loyal butler. Wow. When can I get a life like that? Wow. Louie is definitely spoiled. He does not have to lay a finger on anything. Whatever he want, his wish will be granted. Except for one. He doesn’t get his freedom. Being stuck in a mansion is a lonely life. His butler will chaperone him everywhere. Ok, now I don’t envy his life. Anyway, his uncle wants him dead. So he hired some bad bikers to kill Louie. Clearly because of the inheritance. Same old sh*t. Greedy family member. And Louie woke up forgetting who he is and where he should be. This is when the show gets funnier.

I really enjoy watching Seo In Guk as Louie. His casual acting really awe me. His cuteness, his silliness, his quirkiness really makes me happy! I must say this is his best role ever since Reply 1997. You must watch him. He speaks cute Spanish. He speaks cute French. And the way he carries himself as Louie is squee-worthy. It almost feels as if the role is meant for In Guk.

Okay, let’s be frank. There is nothing new with the story. The happy ending is almost predictable. But what I love about this drama is the acting. So carefree and funny. The scrips were well written. And the OST, oh my I’m totally in love with all the songs in this drama. I need to buy or download it soon. You should, too!!!! Anyway, Shopping King Louie is a must watch fall drama. With three episodes left, I can’t see how the writer will screw this up. Really I can’t. I’m currently watching episode 13 and this show still makes me laugh out loud!
