Grease Love and Woks Full of Melo | Greasy Melo

From the makers of Jealousy Incarnate, this was one heck of a unique show much like its predecessor and I enjoyed every minute of its quirky characters and the delicious food. With a star-studded cast, the show managed to pull off a very over-the-top plot with great ease. Despite wanting to write a longer introduction, [...]

Establishing New Codes of Justice | Miss Hammurabi

Exploring the social injustices of the downtrodden and destitute of Korean society, Miss Hammurabi was an emotional roller-coaster throughout the period it aired. Coming to an end last night, the story was at once heartwarming, motivating and also greatly nostalgic, leaving me wanting much more than was offered in terms of emotional satisfaction. However, everything [...]

Solving Crimes One Sketch At a Time | Sketch

By far Sketch was one of the best dramas that was airing these past few weeks. With a solid story line and a very well-knit plot, it kept me hooked every single episode wondering how crimes in the past, present and future would come together to narrate a single tale of revenge, redemption and betrayal. [...]

Let’s Eat

With Season 3 fast approaching, I decided to warm up and watch the first two seasons in time. Hence, after finishing Season 1, I am here with my review of a tantalizing journey of tastes and colours brought to us in the production of this masterpiece of a drama. Without further ado, I believe one [...]

Miracle That We Met

Oh the pleasure of watching another brilliant drama starring Kim Myung Min go down in the annals of his already amazing filmography. Miracle That We Met was partially absurd in its plot, in terms of the fantasy element present in it. However, it was definitely an amazing journey to be a part of, for numerous [...]

Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Good Food

This weekender just came to an end last weekend, and I was awaiting the final subtitled episode to write this review. Pretty Noona was an uncomfortable mixture of good and bad qualities, all intertwined, making it hard to distinguish on from the other. It was a pleasant watch, but the episodes often felt dragged, halfway through [...]

Switch: Change The World

And this marks the return of Jang Geun Suk to the small-screen. One of my first Korean actors, I have followed his career pretty closely. I did not watch his sageuk, Jackpot, however since I do not have a particular love for the historical drama. Therefore, Switch is what I watched after Pretty Man and I [...]

Life in Poetry | A Poem A Day

A fantastic drama from the makers of Drinking Solo just came to an end. The entire story resonated strongly because of the similarities in script, however, this was a completely different journey. Taking us through the happenings at a physiotherapy ward, the drama really showed us the emotionally sensitive side of the world of medicine. [...]

Life as it Really Is | Live

Live may have finished a week ago, but the amateur that I am at understanding Korean, I was waiting for the subtitles to do complete justice to this brilliant piece of work. A drama based on the lives of rookie cops in the patrol division of the police force, Live was a primarily action drama [...]

The Korean Experiment with Classic European Literature | The Greatest Seducer

The Greatest Seducer came to an end last night, and I must say, that I have an absolutely mixed opinion about the show. It was an adaptation of the famous 1999 film, Cruel Intentions that starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, from her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, with Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon. Cruel Intentions was [...]
