Twenty Again.

This has got to be one of the most unique dramas I saw lately, and without a long introduction, I'm going to explain how I liked it right away. The story revolves around a 38 year old, Ha No Ra (played by Choi Ji Woo), who has led an isolated life ever since she got [...]

Lingerie Girls Generation

I feel it a great honour to cover such a brilliant show that just ended tonight. I have so much to say about it, despite the fact that this was a short series of only 8 episodes. So without further ado, I shall jump right into it. Set in 1979 in an all-girls school in [...]

Playing God in Voice 18+

I just finished the craziest Korean drama I have ever seen, and I felt very out of place in this murderous abyss of Voice after being a severe romantic comedy addict. Though it will be tough to forget all the graphic images that this villainous show displayed, I will go on to commend the show. [...]

When the Proletariat Takes on the Bourgeoisie in Strongest Deliveryman

One phenomenally well-written and well-acted drama just ended. Strongest Deliveryman reached out to the little socialist within me that wishes for equal opportunities for the rich and the poor in any society. With a story based on the struggles of the youth that makes up the lowest rungs of the economic class, it dealt with [...]

Falsifying Namgoong Min | Falsify

Second drama in a year for Namgoong Min. After having finished one show based on social corruption in Lookout, I was pleased to catch another, especially since I have developed a fascination with this actor. The story revolves around an online tabloid newspaper, where one employee, Han Mu Young (Namgoong Min) is on a quest [...]

Nam Joo Hyuk… | Bride of the Water God

I'm short of words right now... After Nam Joo Hyuk's fantastic performance as Jung Joon Hyung in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, I had mixed emotions about him taking such a 'godly' role next. I wasn't sure a rookie actor like him would be able to pull of the grandeur and pomp of a water [...]

The Best Hit

최고의 날들은 아직 살지 않은 날들이다 - 나짐 히크메트 The best days are those we still haven't lived through - Nazim Hikmet What a great time travel drama this was. This genre is on the rise in Korean dramas these days, with Tomorrow With You, Tunnel (which I still haven't seen), The Best Hit, and [...]

Suspicious Partner

The joy to see Ji Chang Wook back, swapping his secret agent garb for neatly tailored suits, in his first ever romantic comedy, Suspicious Partner, was absolutely great. He looked drop-dead gorgeous in his lead role as Prosecutor No Ji Wook, and well, I'm all eyes for him, always. Moving onto the story, which is [...]

Looking Out | Lookout

Another thrilling ride just came to an end yesterday. Lookout, with its star-studded cast was one awfully psychotic journey which had its viewers on edge for most of the show. A wild goose chase involving a corrupt judiciary and a group of vigilantes seeking vengeful justice made for a very exciting premise for the show. [...]
