Seven-Day-Queen-03

I finished two dramas at the end of July and I am getting around to reviewing them now.

The first one is called Queen for Seven Days/ Seven Day Queen. The story is based on some historical figures but I am assuming that most of the story embellished. So right off the hop you get to pretty much see the end. It’s in the title that Shin Chae-Kyung is going to be Queen for only seven days but what happens to her after that is unclear. The pretty much show right away that she is being dragged off and the drama starts with a heavy heart knowing that it will be a painful ending. But you soon forget that as it then starts with Shin Chae-Kyung and Prince Jin-Seong as children. I have to say that the child actors to a fabulous job of acting and I really enjoyed them. As adults Yeon Woo-Jin takes over the role of the Prince and I have to say that his transition was more jarring to me. I have seen him recently in “Introverted Boss” and maybe that is why I found it hard? I don’t know it’s not like I don’t like him, I just found that his personality didn’t seem to be quite the same as the earlier version of the prince. Lee Dong-Gun plays the King who does a good job of portraying him I was really surprised and almost didn’t recognize him from “Supper Daddy Yeol”. A part of me always wanted to root for him in this drama.

The story is about Chae-Kyung who lives in the countryside because her parent’s don’t want her getting involved with the Royal family as her dad is the right hand minister to the King. Chae-Kyung as a young girl goes back home and meets the Prince and the King through strange circumstances and becomes entertained in their lives. It is a complicated story and is really easy to get hooked into the story.

7-67-5

The story seemed really interesting to me even though it seemed to be sad and I was always rooting for a good ending. This drama always kept surprising me and I really enjoyed it even though the ending was so sad. I cried really hard at the end and for reasons that I wasn’t even expecting. I think the last drama that made me cry that much was “Goblin”.

74I wasn’t expecting too much from this drama but I was pleasantly surprised of the journey that I went on with this drama. I guess the heart ache is more interesting to me than the easy love stories that don’t seem to exist in real life. So I would recommend this drama as a great historical drama that always kept me on my toes and my emotions on a roller coaster.

Secret-Forest-03

The second drama I finished was Stranger/ Secret Forest. I wasn’t expecting to watch this drama as I am not the biggest fan of crime and police dramas but it seemed to have some interesting elements. It is about a prosecutor Hwang Shi-Mok who as a child had brain surgery because he couldn’t handle all the stimulus around him and know is left him lacking in the area of emotion. This also allows him to stay righteous and not partake in corruption and bribery. He one day comes across a murder scene and he gets involved with what becomes one of his biggest cases ever. In the process he meets Police Lieutenant Han Yeo-Jin who becomes kinda like a partner to him in solving the case.

secret2The acting is very good in this drama I really love watching Cho Seung-Woo as Hwang Shi-Mok, his intelligence and his acting is so good, I felt like I could watch him forever. The actual case that he has to solve seemed to get a bit confusing for me at times especially when they would say a lot of names and trying to get them all straight. Also I really know nothing about prosecutors and how they work, so that part can get a bit dry every so often. Also there pretty much no romance in this drama, but I love how the characters interact regardless of that. Also the ending felt like there needs to be a second season so I don’t know if it is possible?

secret1

This is a great drama with some great plot twists so I always seemed to find myself waiting every week to watch the new episodes. Although I wish they would have delved deeper into his condition of his brain and what exactly happened there? I feel like there needs to be another season to develop the characters some more. Same with the Lieutenant Han Yeo-Jin it feels like I need to know more about her and why she loves drawing. I want to know more about her past and how she has ended up where she is, I feel like I am still curious about the characters which is why it feels like the characters are not done with yet.

giphy

I would recommend this drama if you love any crime and mystery stories that delve into the human condition.

The Dramas I am currently watching are:

  1. Bride Of The Water God: This is nothing like the manhwa and so I am disappointed with it. I was expecting more from this one.

Bride-of-the-Water-God-05

2. School 2017: Typical school drama and lots of mystery and intrigue to go with it.

School-2017-05

3. Man Who Dies To Live: Well hopefully someone will actually sub this drama. I would still like to check it out. I think the controversy over it is so blown out of proportion.

Man-Who-Dies-to-Live-04

4. The King Loves: Pretty good so far even though it is the typical love triangle.

The-King-Loves-04

5. Deserving of the name: Okay I have watched two episodes and I think it is funny and interesting!

name

6. Save Me: Oh this is an intense and crazy drama! I don’t know if I will be able to make it through!

May 2017 Korean Drama Reviews May 22, 2017

Filed under: Reviews — sighilovekdramas @ 3:42 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

The first drama that I finished was Radiant Office and the only familiar faces in this drama is Lee Dong-Hwi from Reply 1988 and Han Sun-Hwa from the girl drop Secret. This drama is about a jobless woman Eun Ho-Won who is trying her best to become am employee at a company. She fall into despair and jumps into the Han River wanting to die. She ends being saved and while in the emergency room she overhears the doctors talking about a patient that has a fatal disease and she escapes the hospital. She doesn’t have money and she makes friends with two other people escaping the emergency room and they are unsure who the doctor is talking about. Eun Ho-Won manages to get a temporary job in the meantime and she decides to give it her all despite knowing whether or not she has a fatal disease. 

So first of all this is not much of a romantic drama if that is what you were expecting, there is some romance but it is not the focus. The characters all kinda fun and I find the actor playing Eun Ho-Won refreshing and I liked the boldness her character portrayed. It is an office setting drama which I feel like I have watched a lot lately but it was still fun and interesting. This drama has a good sense of humour throughout and I really looked forward to watching this drama. I really liked the whole mystery aspect of the drama with not knowing who is dying and just seeing the misunderstandings happening from this problem. I also really liked that they tried to address the problem with how women are treated in the workplace. I liked first of all they admitted there is a problem with a glass ceiling for women, that they do not get to positions that they deserve because they are women. They also didn’t try to portray it in a completely unrealistic way. There were a lot of aspects that I enjoyed about the drama.

I do have some problems with this drama in respect to how they addressed suicide. Eun Ho-Won attempted suicide and she did not get any psychological treatment. They just treated it as she didn’t get the job she wanted so it was just because of that. Suicide is not a physical problem it is a mental problem. It needs to be addressed in a responsible and careful way. Even when other people found out about this it wasn’t like anyone came and talked to her about it. I mean if something bad happened again who is to say she wouldn’t try attempt something like this again. It just bothers me that she had no aftereffects of her acts. I mean at the very least they should have checked her  out for depression or anything psychological. I just don’t think the drama was sending a very responsible idea about suicide, especially because South Korea has a problem with students committing suicide. I just wish they would have addressed this issue in a more of a serious way.

Overall I think this was a pretty fun drama even though there are a few dark issues that come along with it.

The second drama that I finished was The Liar And His Lover which is originally based on a manga called “Kanojo wa Uso o Aishisugiteru” and has also been made into a Japanese Movie. This drama stars Lee Hyun-Woo who was in Moorim School and To The Beautiful You. When I first started watching this drama I almost thought that he was Park Bo Gum, maybe it was the way his hair was styled in this drama. The leading lady is Joy from Red Velvet which surprised me since she has not acted before and she got the lead. The drama is all about singing so it makes sense since she can sing but it was taking a risk with no acting experience. Sung Joo is also in the drama and he is from the boy band UNIQ. This drama is about  Kang Han-Kyeol (Hyun-Woo) who is a talented composer for one of the biggest bands in music Crude Play. His identity is kept a secret but he is the one that writes all their music. He meets Yoon So-Rim (Joy) who has a gifted voice and wants to become a singer with her band. They meet by chance and Hyun-Woo borrows her phone to record a new song he is making. She falls in love with him and his song and wants to try to help him in any way possible. He forgets to delete his song off of her phone and he has to keep meeting up with her to convince her to delete it.

I have to say I really did not like at least the first 2 episodes, there was too much singing and it just felt corny. I also found it boring and it reminded me a bit of the drama Entertainer which I was terribly impressed with either. It did get a bit better after that but it still wasn’t that exciting of a drama to me. I didn’t really like Joy’s acting in this drama, it felt forced especially with the storyline of her having to be madly in love with Han-Kyeol. I guess I didn’t like their relationship that much and I didn’t really like him in the drama either. Something just didn’t flow that well for me with this drama I guess it felt amateurish. Maybe because it felt unrealistic and not in a fun fantasy way just the relationships and even the story line of the band crude play not playing instruments. I guess it felt like nothing fresh was being brought to this drama. That is maybe too harsh but this was not the best drama of the month for me. I thought parts of it were cute and it made me a little bit curious but overall it was very much a teen drama.

I did like that it dealt with some issues in the music industry and what it means to be an idol, singer or a band. How authentic do you need to be to be loved by others unconditionally. I think they could have gone much deeper in these issues and found it a bit disappointing that everything gets glossed over and quickly wrapped up. I guess they were following a storyline since it has been made from a manga so I guess they were following a set storyline. Maybe the Japanese movie is better? I don’t know but after this drama I have no desire to watch the movie or read the manga. I have to say I feel bad for Lee Hyun-Woo, I wish he could get a drama that was going to do well. I don’t think it is his acting is that bad!

Overall I think this drama would be a pass, I think there are better music industry dramas out there to watch!

The third drama that I finished was Tunnel which is about a Detective Park Gwang-Ho (Choi Jin-Hyuk) in 1986 that is trying to catch a serial killer in a tunnel and when he gets to the other side he is in present day. He doesn’t know why he is in the present day but he thinks that he must be here to solve the mystery of the serial killer and it has been 30 years. It also stars Kim Sun-Jae (Yoon Hyun-Min) who is a fellow detective.


I wasn’t really wanting to watch this drama because I don’t really care for police stories I feel like that area has really been overdone. I mean I don’t mind if a drama has some of it in it, but when the whole drama is about it I feel hesitant to watch it. Since this drama has a time traveling element I thought it could be more interesting and I am sure glad that I decided to watch it. I also wasn’t that excited to watch Choi Jin-Hyuk, I don’t know why I don’t really like him? Maybe it is his growly voice or just his acting, I just don’t really like him that much? But he was okay with him in this drama maybe because it wasn’t focused on a love line at all?

This drama I think has been the best one for this month for me, it is really interesting how they told the story and I found the criminal psychology aspect of this drama fascinating. I have to say that it was frustrating that the police couldn’t pin the person to the crime very easily and made me wonder if it was that hard in real life? I think they did a good job in being more realistic in the story then some dramas even though it was a fantasy drama. The time traveling was a bit strange in how that worked and the rules weren’t terribly logical. The ending made me slightly confused because the current place he was in would completely change when he would go back in time. It seems a bit counter productive and I would think that they would have talked more about the time traveling in the drama but it is almost pushed aside. They also had some filler episodes where they would solve a murder mystery per episode which seemed a bit predictable type of conducting an episode.

For the most part I enjoyed watching this drama although it was a bit dark with so many murders and dealing with psychopaths. I would recommend this drama to anyone that enjoys watching police shows and mysteries. There really is not much romance in this drama and it reminded me of the show Criminal Minds except with time traveling.! But seriously this drama was really a good mystery to follow and really made you think. I even liked the ending which can be hard with time traveling because things don’t always make sense.

I am currently watching:

Chicago Typewriter: This is ending soon and I think it has been a pretty interesting drama even if I don’t care for ghosts and past lives and such.

Man To Man: I feel like this drama was a disappointment, I don’t see that much bromance and instead it is all spy stuff and the characters don’t have that much chemistry. I was hoping for more humor and silly story lines instead it is serious and stiff.

The Dramas that I plan to watch next are:

Circle

Lookout

My Sassy Girl

My-Sassy-Girl-SBS-03

Seven Day Queen

August 2016 Korean Drama Review September 20, 2016

Doctors-Poster1

The first drama I finished was Doctors with Park Shin Hye. I enjoyed the drama for a while but I kinda got bored with the revenge plot for Shin Hye. I also found her love story got boring after a while. The kisses were also super awkward. I did enjoy the medical side of the drama and the guest stars were pretty awesome. The side stories made me want to watch the next episodes and found that to keep the drama going. The ending didn’t leave me with a strong impression, the drama was okay, not great and I expected more from Shin Hye, her acting hasn’t really improved.I enjoyed the large cast and all the individual stories which made it much more interesting to me. It just felt like something was missing. I have to say the first couple of episodes were much more interesting because it started when she was younger and it felt more fun and entertaining. When it switched to her being a doctor and an adult it just felt their was something lacking in the story. Of course it had a love triangle but it didn’t really explore that fully and it fell a bit flat. There was some tension with her childhood friend but even that was kinda lame. So in conclusion it was an okay drama, not great or terrible just okay.

4783_UncontrollablyFond_Nowplay_Small

The second drama I finished is Uncontrollably Fond. I would say if you don’t like horribly depressing dramas don’t even start this one. You probably can’t even count the number of times one of the main characters has a crying session. The last two episodes were unbearable because of all the sad scenes. The storyline falls a bit flat with again another revenge type plot. I wish they did more with the storyline tho make it more interesting. The love story gets boring with all its on and off moments that I can hardly keep up. I kept asking myself am I watching this if he has an incurable disease? I guess I had some secret hope that they would never let Woo Bin die, even in a drama! Woo Bin did a good job playing his depressing role with style. Suzy’s acting seemed a bit lacking for some reason, or else her character was not that interesting. I thought it was interesting that she seemed makeup less for most of the drama.I think they made her up for the last episode, maybe save her image at least for the end. This drama was also made ahead of time which is more unusual for dramas, so I thought it was going to be really good but I don’t think it really made that much of a difference to me. Overall if you don’t like depressing dramas stay clear of this one!

Picture 1The third drama I finished was W. This was a fascinating drama with the scifi and fantasy genre. Finally it felt like it was breath of fresh air when it came to fresh plots and interesting story lines. I liked how unpredictable this drama was, it just kept me guessing through the whole drama. I think that it was a bit to short to explain everything that happened. There was some logic flaws and confusing parts to this drama. That seems to happen in fantasy genres often though and I wasn’t particularly bothered by it maybe because I was well entertained by this drama. I loved that it would flip from a romance to a action to fantasy all in one episode. I also enjoyed how this drama would discuss the basics of what makes a story, it was an interesting dissection of what makes a good story. The characters were really fun and enjoyable, I have to say Jong-Suk really took the show, he plays his character so well. I can’t blame anyone for falling for him and his charms! Hyo-Joo is also really fun and is a bit quirky and fun in this drama. I got a bit tired of the dad and the killer in the storyline and found that a bit confusing. I really enjoyed this drama and I think it gave other dramas a hard time since it came out at the same time as Uncontrollably Fond. Everyone thought Uncontrollably Fond was going to do so well and then W sweeps in and takes number one spot. I think anyone would find this drama interesting and even if you don’t like sci-fi or fantasy that it would still be found enjoyable.

nightmare-teacher-01

I also watched an older Web Drama called Nightmare Teacher which is categorized under Mystery and Thriller category. It stars Kim So Hyun who was from Who Are You School 2015 and Lee Min Hyuk from Btob. It is about a teacher who comes in and gives students consultations and gives them solutions to their problems but always come at a price. After watching this drama I am still confused about this drama. I think it needed more time to explain how and why everything happened. I feel like I was left with many unanswered questions and I feel like it had the potential to be so much better. The episodes definitely have a formula each student gets two episodes and then moves to a different problem. I don’t understand what the teacher was trying to do? and I don’t understand the ending. Maybe you guys can watch it and explain it to me!? I think it could have been so much better but I find it fascinating and I still find myself thinking about this drama.

beautiful_gong_shim-p1

I also finished an older korean drama Beautiful Gong Shim. I had wanted to watch this earlier but there were to many dramas going on at the same time. I wanted to watch it because it started Nam Gong-Min and I had been enjoying him in dramas lately although he was always playing the bad guy.In this drama he was playing a goofy romantic lead which made me interested to watch. This drama was a fun, light hearted, and comedic drama. I really enjoyed Minah from Girl’s Day she plays a girl who basically feels like the ugly duckling because her sister is beautiful and successful. I find her relatable and she is really cute. The minute she takes of her wig, she is really pretty so it isn’t super believable that she is thought of as ugly. I wish she could take of her wig earlier in the drama but oh well! There are some things that bother me like her sister storyline, it starts of strong as the manipulative sister but it just fizzles out at the end, it also bothers me that they don’t show the discovery of the two of them being sisters. The other thing that was strange was Gong-Min had this special power to see things in slow motion.I find it a strange addition to the story and not really sure if it is supposed to be going somewhere with it and it just is ignored. I would recommend this drama if you just need a light drama to make you smile.

The new drama I am watching is Moonlight Drawn by Clouds which is another gender bender drama.A girl who has dressed like a boy since she was young is sold to be a eunuch in the palace.She gets the attention of the crown Prince but she is unaware of who she is so the antics continue. I at first was not convinced by this drama since the story line is nothing new but I really liked Park Bo Geum as the crown Prince and it was nice to see him in a different role after reply 1988. This seems like a fun drama so far.

moon_lovers-ps-11

The second drama I am watching is Moon Lovers Scarlet Heart Ryeo. This drama is based off of a Chinese novel which had been adapted to a Chinese drama before. I have not looked anything up because I don’t want to know the ending yet. I first of all have to say I have really missed IU in dramas!I am happy that she had made a comeback! The storyline is very busy with many characters.Basically it is like a reverse harem IU is surrounded by good looking men which all like her!  IU is taken from modern time to Goryeo time period and she had no idea why or how anything works. I am enjoying this drama way to much! It is do fun and addicting,I think this one will become very popular.

250px-shopping_king_louie_poster    

The third drama I want to watch is Shopping King Louie. This drama is about a young rich heir that lives life frivolously because he has lost his memories and a girl that will change his ways. This drama seems pretty stereotypical but I think I will still check it out!

What other dramas are you checking out that you think I should be too?

 

 

 

 

Fall Dramas Review 2015 October 11, 2015

The dramas I have been watching this fall have not been that many! I can’t say I have found many that I felt like watching this fall hopefully there will be more coming my way soon.

The first one that I watched was The Eccentric Daughter-in-Law or Virtual Bride. I mainly wanted to check this one out because Dasom from Sistar was in it and was curious about her acting. It is about a failing kpop girl group member that decides to do a reality tv show about living the daughter-in-law experience and how she would feel actually becoming a real daughter-in-law. The show depicts a few mother in law and daughter in law relationships which all seem pretty rough, I am not sure if there is any out there like that but it seemed pretty brutal. So that created a lot of interesting drama. The production of the drama seemed pretty low budget but yet I found the characters to still be pretty enteraining to watch. The main male lead was a bit different but yet he still grew on me. The ending was kinda meh but overall not a bad drama! Just not a great one either.

The-Eccentric-Daughter-in-Law-03

cnt_star150818111114530

The second one that I watched was a korean webdrama Dr Ian where a psychiatrist who specializes in hypnosis treatments helps an office girl that is going through a betrayal and break up and is played by Dara from 2NE1. The episodes are super short and the whole series is short. I always love psychology dramas and it is a bit confusing I think because they tried to fit a story into such a short time frame but I still enjoyed it. I thought it was an interesting story!

Screen-Shot-2015-03-16-at-10.13.39

The third one I watched was also a webdrama called Girl of 0Am which is about a delusioned singer that becomes in charge of a karoke business and a woman shows up after midnight and helps him with his business and also sets him back on his path with singing. Again kinda confusing of I am still unsure what exactly happened in the end. But still an interesting show!

The fourth one that I am currently watching is She Was Pretty which stars Hwang Jung Eum and Park Seo Joon and they played brother and sister in Kill Me, Heal Me and now they get to play new roles in a different drama which I love. The story is about Jung Eum was a pretty girl from a rich family but then her family went bankrupt and she also lost her beauty. Meanwhile Seo Joon was unattractive with low self-esteem and he grows up to be handsome and successful. They meet in unexpected ways and creates a lot of interesting and painful situations. I have to say I am really am enjoying this drama . I am only half way through but have enjoyed all the circumstances and awkwardness of the drama. I think it is a fun drama and would easily recommend it to watch!!

The Fifth drama that I just barely started is  Sassy Go Go or Cheer Up! I have only watched two episodes but I think it will be an amusing drama! I feel like it is a typical high school drama and all the politics happening within schools. It paints a harsh picture of what school is like for students in Korea. I am not sure if I love Eun Ji in this role. I have liked her before but I find this character a less likable one to me. It is about Eun-Ji a student in charge of a dance club which gets shut down and to win it back she has to create a cheer team and work with other students she dislikes. I am not as excited for this drama as I think I am supposed to be but oh well will probably still watch!

Summer Dramas 2015 July 31, 2015

20150323165345!Murphy'sLawofLove2015SETTV

So I can finally update you on Murphy’s Law of Love which wrapped up this week. I found this drama to be a typical taiwanese drama which is the storyline feels dragged out and the endings are typical. There are parts that I really enjoyed in the drama but sometimes I found myself trying to click over parts that were too slow. There were too many flashbacks! I tend to flip through them in every drama though. I mean we saw that scene so recently it is not like I need to rewatch it! It just doesn’t feel really original to me I guess compared to the other taiwanese dramas I have watched. I mean how many times do we have to have a male lead that has mommy issues and is reunited and then the mother runs away again. I guess it really reminds me of Just You. I enjoyed parts of this drama and the lead actors were pretty good. It just felt too long for me and unoriginal.

The drama that I am currently following is “Late Night Restaurant” or “Midnight Diner” which is based on a Japanese manga series and also been adapted into a Japanese tv drama. It is about a chef called Master that opens his restaurant from midnight until 7 am every day and doesn’t have a menu. It is about his diners that come and ask for what they want to eat and he makes it for them. Each episode highlights a different diner and follows their story and delves into their lives and shown a problem or situation that they must overcome and how the restaurant fits into their lives. I personally love these kind of stories where they show a personal story about different people in all episodes. The acting seems a bit amateurish in some episodes I guess for a Korean drama. I assume that it following more to the Japanese manga series story-line where I see fits the overacting and dramatic acting. I am enjoying this drama and is good especially if you want a break from all the romantic dramas and want some other type of story-line. I also enjoy watching other people eating, everything looks delicious!!

The second drama that I am watching is “I Order For You” which is based on a web novel. Each episode is about 20 minutes and is aired monday to thursday, which is so awesome because it moves so fast and you don’t have to wait so long. This drama has Gook-Dae(U-Know Yunho) as a chef who makes lunchboxes and Song-Ah picks up an order from his restaurant and seems to fall in love with him and his food. I think this is an awesome light-hearted (for the most part) drama that is pretty entertaining and moves fast. I wasn’t expecting some of the content in this drama but it has lots of turns and twists to watch for. I have to say that my most favorite character is Han Bi-Ryong! Oh those glasses get me and his big brother atmosphere following him warms my cold heart!! I would recommend this drama, it is fun!

CKZiY7BVEAAV3NS1437635264-당신을주문합니다_EP08.mp4_20150723_112133.843  The-Time-We-Were-Not-In-Love-Wallpaper-korean-dramas-38643480-1280-720

The third drama I am  watching is” The Time We Were Not In Love “,which is a remake of a remake of a Taiwanese drama “In Time With You” which I have not watched or looked up. I want the element of surprise when it comes to watching dramas. Ha-Na(Ha Ji-Won) is a 30-year-old woman who has struggled in the world of love but she always has her childhood friend and neighbor Choi-Won around to comfort her and to take care of her. They are just friends and there significant others have a hard time accepting them as just friends. They both agree that they would never end up together and yet no one seems to believe them. I found this drama intriguing and there seems to be some mystery in Choi-Won’s past that Ha-Na doesn’t know and I am waiting for it to come out. I am in the middle of this drama and my interest is waning a bit and I hope it will pick up again with intrigue. I am enjoying it so far and would encourage others to watch this drama.

The other drama that I have finished recently is Producer. This is a awesome drama especially if you love watching variety shows. This show goes behind the scenes of the variety department and shows the lives of the PD’s that make the shows. It also has a lot of big names in this drama Cha Tae Hyun, Kim Soo Hyun, IU, Gong Hyo Jin and other appearances. It only had 12 episodes but each episode was longer than other dramas. IU is a singer and she goes through some hard times and Soo-Hyun is a fresh PD and is learning the ropes of producing a show. I love the fresh look of Soo-Hyun rookie who is hilarious in his seriousness and enthusiasm. There is still some love lines in this drama that keep it romantic but I enjoyed the humor more in this drama. I could have lived without any love lines in this drama they were not my most favorite part of this drama. I would easily recommend this drama, it was entertaining and fun.

Who Are You? School 2015 Review June 19, 2015

Filed under: Reviews — sighilovekdramas @ 3:49 pm
Tags: , , , , , , ,

When this drama first came out I was already watching so many that I couldn’t watch it right away. So when some of the other drama ended I started Who Are You. When I first started watching I became obsessed immediately. I had so many episodes to watch at once that I have to say I pretty much binged on them! Which is so sad when you get to the most recent and it is ending in a week. I really suggest watching dramas when they are happening in real time and make yourself wait every week for them. It gives me more closure when it is time for the drama to end. For me this drama has seemed like it was so short because I finished it in like a week or two! I feel I get to emotionally attached if I can binge on them! Anyway if you haven’t watched this drama I suggest you drop everything that you are doing and start watching immediately!photo586461

It has been a while since I actually was so excited by a drama. I mean who doesn’t love twin mystery dramas. I think I haven’t had enough ever since Lindsay Lohan became a twin! LOL. Okay the summary of this drama is that Lee Eun Bi a girl living in a orphanage is being bullied and has a hard life. Lee Eun Byul is her twin that has a mother and is rich and has a wonderful life. Something happens and Lee Eun Bi ends up living Eun Byul’s life. It is the old switcheroo! kinda!Picture 1

There are a few mysteries in this drama that intrigued me for the whole drama! I was always excited to watch the next episode which is not usually the case in most dramas. I would say most dramas taper off at about the 10th episode and it is harder to feel the excitement when watching. Of course the flashbacks get a bit annoying in all dramas but I always skip those parts.

This drama deals with serious issues like bullying that comes in all forms. From other classmates to parents and educators. It tries to deal with the issues that young adults and teens deal with and it gives the drama more depth.

I loved the love interests in this drama and I thought it was well acted. Tae Kwang I loved him with his orange hair and silliness.

I also loved Han Yi-An who was adorable in this drama! Loved him also in surplus princess! Yes he looks like Jung-Shin from CN Blue which helps me like him as well. I loved his big brother and caring ability in this drama.

Overall I really loved this drama, the focus was not completely on love interests but focused on all types of other issues and has intriguing mysteries throughout the drama. I loved it and I think everybody should go watch this drama RIGHT NOW!!
