This was the MOST anticipated drama of 2020. The King: The Eternal Monarch was in to-wait and watch lists of many viewers right from the beginning of this year. Not only is the story intriguing—following treachery and love across parallel universes, it also stars two of the most popular actors: Lee Min-ho and Kim Go-eun.
It's official. I have found my new #1 Kdrama. Kill Me, Heal Me has replaced W: Two Worlds as my top Kdrama. I watched this Korean drama on the recommendation of my friend's sister, who raved about it. And I'm SO GLAD. I had college going on when I watched this and I binged it every free moment I got. Two episodes in and I loved it already.
This review has been pending for AGES. I have all the notes, I spoke to my friends and gathered their opinions on the show and got all points ready. All I had left was to actually write the review. Anyway, hi y'all! I absolutely ADORED Strong Woman Do Bong Soon and I can't wait to completely dive into this review. So let's get to it.
At this point, I was totally into Kdramas. It's a new world where the shows end after a certain number of episodes, without having upcoming seasons or spin-offs. It's a good thing, but also a bad thing when the shows are too damn good. School 2013 was one of the mediocre dramas that I've watched. I watched it because it stars Lee Jong-suk and Kim Woo-bin, and it was said to be the drama due to which they became best friends.
It's time for another Korean drama review! Let's hope I didn't forget everything about this show because I actually watched it months back lol. Thank goodness I had the foresight to make notes so this review might actually have some details. I watched this Kdrama only because of Lee Jong-suk. After watching three shows of his and loving all of them, I decided I'm bingeing the shows in which he's a lead. I tried watching I Can Hear Your Voice because I saw a blog post that said he's amazing in it. I liked him well enough but I HATED the other main character. She was very annoying and Lee Jong-suk's character still pined over her. Yeah, no. So then I decided to try Doctor Stranger and I went in with low expectations because I hadn't heard much praise for this one.
What matters to you more: the plot or the characters? Your answer will determine whether you'll like Uncontrollably Fond or not. This Korean drama was my 5th kdrama. I watched it because it has Kim Woo-bin, who is Lee Jong-suk's bestfriend, and Suzy, who I really liked in While You Were Sleeping. I also heard a LOT about this show, it's praised about online and people love Kim Woo-bin because of this.
Welcome back to another Korean drama review where I talk about anotherone of my favourites so far! This was the fourth Kdrama I watched and I did not expect that I would like it this much What's the show about? What if you went into your favourite fictional world? What if you met your fictional crush and fell in love with him/her for real? What if THEY fell in love with YOU?
This was the second kdrama I ever watched, and it was completely different from what I expected. After I finished While You Were Sleeping, I searched for kdramas to watch which are like WYWS and this popped up in a list along with Pinocchio. If you've read my review on Pinocchio, you'd know that I really liked it. But I actually watched this before that and I didn't like this one much. Probably because of it's story and theme, which I didn't bother to find out before watching it.
I didn't think I'd find a show as good as While You Were Sleeping this soon, but I did and it's Pinocchio. I searched for shows to watch after WYWS and I found this so my friend and I started watching it together. It took a few episodes to get into it but I LOVED it once I did. I must have watched Pinocchio about two weeks after WYWS (yes this review is really late) and it instantly got me obsessed about it instead of WYWS...
I am obsessed. Completely obsessed. I wasn't really interested in watching Korean dramas before but after a LOT of insistence from my friend (thanks Sabs!) I finally agreed to watch it, and I fell in love with it. I binged this show in two days and did NOTHING else. I don't think I could have even if I tried because it completely drew me in and I could not stop watching it...
