When Bertha Mason is Let Loose | Perfect Wife

A phenomenally impressive drama has just come to an end. Perfect Wife had all the trappings of a makjang  drama about a married woman (Shim Jae Bok, played by Go So Young) who has a cheating husband (Goo Jung Hee played by Yoon Sang Hyun). A lawyer by profession, Jae Bok gets fired because of her inability [...]

Marriage Not Dating

One title that says it all! Marriage Not Dating was a zippy romantic comedy starring Yeon Woo Jin as Gong Gi Tae and Han Groo as Joo Jang Mi(I saw her previously in Can We Get Married? where she made a great couple with Kim Young Kwang) . The show had a very mundane story: [...]

Healing the World… Healer

It's been a few days since I finished the absolutely swoon-worthy Healer, starring Ji Chang Wook as our resident Healer, and Park Min Young as Chae Young Shin. The drama was about my dream job when I finished high school; being a journalist and taking down all those big fat baddies who steal our money and [...]

A World With A Strong Woman | Do Bong Soon

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon just ended hours ago, and I am overflowing with awe at the finale, even though getting to the end was a slightly rough journey. The premise of the drama was around a female protagonist going by the name of Do Bong Soon (played by Park Bo Young), who has superhuman [...]

Chief KIM!!!

AAA!!! The BEST show dealing with a very serious issue of financial corruption in large chaebol groups just came to an end. Chief Kim or김과장 (it just sounds so much better in Korean) aired at this very perfect timing as per Korean politics. With the impeachment and eventual arrest of President Park Geun Hye on charges of [...]

Come Back, Ahjusshi

I just finished a very strange premise for a drama, Come Back Ahjusshi, starring Rain (Jung Ji Hoon) and Oh Yeon Seo. Even though the premise was rather strange, it [...]

The Curse of Bad Scripts | Shy Boss

My Shy Boss just ended yesterday. A drama that was originally portrayed as a romantic comedy about an introverted boss who instills fear into the hearts of his employees because of his antisocial personality, devolved into a strange kind of suicidal, mystery-solving, revenge-seeking plot. What an utter disaster. Starring Yeon Woo Jin and Park Hye Soo, [...]

When a Drama Becomes a Case Study | Beautiful Mind

I have watched most of Kim Myung Min and Cha Seung Won's dramas, both of whom are seasoned actors, but one person I hadn't gotten around to watching was Jang Hyuk, another actor possibly in the same league. Therefore, my latest watch was: Beautiful Mind, starring Jang Hyuk and the energetic, lively Park So Dam [...]
