My son gave me his tablet last night and told me I could watch whatever I want on Netflix. With no agenda, I browsed the page and stumbled on Momo Salon. Not sure what it is about, I curiously check the drama page. 6 episodes long? 9 minutes for each episode? Well, it took me less than a minute to give the show a go. If I don’t like the first episode, I could just walk away. No strings attached.
I don’t know what to say with this web drama. 3 episodes aired on Viki. I am still hoping there will be more to come. Fortuneteller’s Secret Recipe confuses me a lot. The ending did not make any sense. Please, don’t even think of watching it. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. I feel wronged!
See? I’m really confused. I continuously reminding myself that I do not have for another drama. Apparently, I proved myself wrong once again! I was able to squeeze in Bong Soon – A Cyborg in Love in between my cooking and dining with my kiddo. We both actually entertained and enjoyed this cutesy drama. Only 12 episodes long, and 15 minutes per episode, I think you would totally enjoy this web drama. I found it super easy to watch and enough to keep me addicted to it. Well, I was since I completed it in 3 days with 4 episodes per day! *beams*
The story is simple. Bong Soon is clueless that she is a cyborg. She fell in love with her team leader, Kim Joo Sung, who happens to be a genius computer scientist. He created Bong Soon. So most of the part when Bong Soon describes her memories, it is Joo Sung’s memories. There is one thing that Bong Soon doesn’t know about herself. When she started to develop a love feeling, she will automatically shuts down. Eventually they both admit their feelings for each other but Joo Sung wants her to keep their relationship in secret. He doesn’t want the rest to know. Bong Soon doesn’t know that she was created to be used as an A.I.
There are a lot of questions stemmed from watching this web drama. And all of my questions were never answered. Bong Soon has a good storyline with few interesting plots. But these plots were left as that. I realized that by the end of it, none of the loopholes were addressed. The ending itself left me hanging. So I took it for the romance and left the rest as that. If you are the type who hates to be left hanging, this web drama is not for you. I enjoyed it for the romance and good OST. *smiles*
I was quite intrigued by this web drama. It’s been popping on my DramaFever page for awhile. I knew it is a sign that I need to watch it. When I saw Zombie Mama‘s post on Click Your Heart, I can’t help but read it. It sounded very interesting, especially when you’re allowed to choose the next plot. Yeah, it is a unique concept. I have never seen a drama done this way. An unusual approach, actually. Sadly, I’m a party pooper. I decided not to play along with the show and watch all 7 episodes. Wae? I was curious.
Each episode is about 15 minutes long. This drama introduces us to FNC’s pre-debut group. They are currently members of Neoz School. Apparently all the boys are still in training but I’m sure they will be on our screens pretty soon. And what is the best time to introduce them to future (saesang) fans by having them star in this web drama! How convenient! The leading lady is none other than AOA’s Mina (aka Kwon Min Ah). I love Mina. I’ve been watching her since Wonderful Days! I also enjoyed her character in Adolescence Medley and All About My Mom. She’s cute. I especially enjoyed her speaking in Busan accent in Modern Farmer, a drama which I have yet to finish! *covers her face in an embarrassment*
Anyway, back to Click Your Heart. One girl and four guys. Was it four guys? Or three? This show distracted me with beautiful boys *laughs*. Actually, I was distracted by not knowing which episode to choose. I should have played along with the show. *facepalm*. Either way, I think I met three out of four boys. Good enough, right? The only less confusing part is that all characters use their real names! That’s easy! Mina recently transferred to a new school. But she already has a bad rep in her new school. Thankfully, Do Won, embraced her since they already know each other. Do Won likes Mina, obviously.
Mina joined the radio club Cha Ni is in. She was assigned to interview the school’s star baseball player, Ro Woon. Of course, her sweet and lovable character made him fall for her. Cha Ni is the character I don’t recall meeting him. To be honest, he and Do Won look alike! *covers face again* Oh well. I think I met Ju Ho at the end! Ack… He is her ex-boyfriend! He looks so cold yet the man you want in your life!
So guess who Mina picks as her boyfriend? Should I tell you? Hmmmm *rubs chin*, I’ll be mean this time. Go watch it. As I said before, the drama concept is unique and unusual to our typical drama watching. But the story itself is pretty typical. Nothing to rave… I think it would still fun to watch it. After all, Click Your Heart is a cute drama! *wink*
Seriously, what A title!!! I really don’t get the meaning of it! But after 4 episodes in, I finally got it. The girl loves to eat! She doesn’t care about anything else in this world. Men? Pfffff. Fashion? Far from it. And marriage? Who needs a husband? *laughs* In this era where the pressure from family, friends and societies are immense, Yoo Yang decided to focus on food! I don’t blame her. I have this love-hate relationship with food but our relationship almost awesome. I would go out and about to find a delicious meal. Same with Yang. One thing about Yang is that she is quirky and weird so this makes her very, VERY undesirable. On top of that, her do-not-care attitude can be a bit unpleasant.
One night, she was drunk and met Park Byeong. For the first time, in her adulthood life, she suddenly found herself attracted to a man. She surprised that she actually desires him. And when she woke up the next day and realized that she had slept with him, Yang was a happy camper! Heh, who doesn’t want to make out with No Min Woo! Yang isn’t ugly, she is just different. And you would think Byeong would not like her but instead he, too, is drawn to her! He found her most attractive when she eats and orders food. Well, yeoreobun, this is love! *happy sigh*
Eating Existence is a cute, 10-episode web drama by Naver. How did I miss this, I really do not know! But I’m glad I’m watching this. And be prepared to love (and laugh) this show because each episode is less than 10 minutes long! Before you know it… You almost complete the series! I’m currently on episode 8 and I will be done in less than 20 minutes. Now I’m not sure how the ending will be… Yang and Byeong already on cloud 10. Will their love for food and each will end in the altar? Well, let’s find out together! And did I mention No Min Woo is in it????? *wink*
When life is busy, you squeeze in some web drama in between. And exactly what I did when I was on work travel. Choco Bank was my main squeeze. It was a quick 6-episode, stress and tension released drama that you must watch when you have less than an hour and half time to spare. The story is simple and cute. In the beginning, I was worried that there will be a triangle love but it didn’t turn out to be. Phew… I worried for nothing. It started with Ha Cho Co (yeap, that’s her name), opening her chocolate bakery business. She’s an old school baker business woman who knows nothing of the new financial technology world. Basically she needs help. A lot of help since she is soooooooo clumsy! And then we get a jobless yet perfect and handsome looking Kim Eun Haeng, who’s been dreaming of being a banker but never landed one. The two crossed path one day and made a pack. She will offers a job but in return he will bring money in through giving financial counseling to her clients (as well as managing her financial).
For all I know, Kai in his first acting gig isn’t bad at all. I think this boy has major potential. He can’t be a lead yet since he has a lot to learn but he did really good here. Park Eun Bin as clumsy Choco seems pretty weak in acting next to Kai, to be honest. Maybe because PD-nim wanted to highlight Kai. *shrugs* Anyway, as a web drama, Choco Bank was short and sweet and I’m glad it stays that way. I wouldn’t want to see it as a drama series… I don’t find love in financial love plot drama *grin*.
I’ve been watching my twitter feed and many Tlist have seen this recent posted web drama by Naver. But I also saw many frustrated over Jung Il Woo’s character as CEO Choi. I wonder why… After watching 11 episodes last night, I really do not see what the fuzz is about. So what if he annoyed you? It is part of his character! *throws towel* C’mon, YOLO, people! Just enjoy it! And as Bel pointed out, it gives me Noble, My Love vibe. I sort of agree with her, too. Arrogant male lead who falls for an underrated good girl… Now who doesn’t like that, right? *wink*As for me, I loved it so much that I marathon the show up to mid of episode 11. If not because of my failing eyes last night, I would have finished it by now. Yeap, I really am enjoying High-End Crush. It was funny and cute! Jung Il Woo as a dramatic CEO Choi is funny. I love his hand gestures and awkward facial expression. And his outrageous fashion statement! So drama queen of him *giggle*. Jin Se Yeon is not as broomy as she always does in her dramas. Sure, I still have a hard time believing her forced facial expression which sometimes ends me to zzzzzzz, but I think I could accept her as it is. For now. Her improvement in acting is enough for me to continue with the show *thumbs up*.High-End Crush is a story of two opposite characters. CEO Choi, as I said, very dramatic character. Yi Ryeong, on the other hand, a very earthy character. He is one picky CEO and wants everything according to what he has in mind. She is different. She is very cautious and aware of the surroundings even on limited resources. He is super rich and she lives in a mountain. They are living in two different lifestyle. He met up with her by accident. His PA asked Yi Ryeong to model and she gave a much needed attitude to protect herself from this fame work. Their first meeting was extremely dramatic and embarrassing! He saw her naked! *covers eyes* But he fell for her smile and since then, he wants her to sign a contract as a trainee with his entertainment agency. He denied his PA’s speculation on his feelings towards Yi Ryeong but almost believe that he actually is.
So how the story would end? It is pretty predictable. They will be together. But the process of failing in love? That’s what I’m looking forward to *giggle*. I can see that he started to care so much for her and she is still clueless of this “love” feeling. But we know she’s not a fool. She’s just playing… dumb in love *grin*. And by the way, there are tons of cameo in this drama. Way too many! I laughed big time when I saw Jung Kyung Ho in it *wink*. Ooh, and Monsta X, too!
