Sry that we are and will be “missing” for a while as examinations are around the corner and we have to cut down the time spent watching dramas and blogging. 😦
I will try to post something when I can. 2 highly recommended Korean Dramas will be Hello Monster/ I remember you and Oh my Ghostess which I haven’t finished watching. I am currently also occasionally watching Singapore Drama The Journey our Homeland. Thanks for your support! Hope that I can review something soon. 🙂

In order to take revenge for his destroyed family, Suk Hoon aims to use his wife, Mi Yun, and get rid of Min Woo to take over the company and let the family live in tragedy. Min Woo with OCD and hallucinations marries Eun Ha (Ji Sook) to establish more power in the company and eventually plans to inherit his father’s company. He feels remorseful towards Eun Ha as he thought that he made Eun Ha drown. What he does not know is that his wife is being switched and his psychological illness is made worse by Suk Hoon.
