Korean Drama Review NLJDH

Since one of my friends looked for my review of this drama and asked me about it when she could not find it, I may as well write it before I forget about the drama’s details haha. Doing this by memory.

Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho (2016) 鄰家律師趙德浩

Genre: Comedy, Family, Law, Crime

starring Park Shin Yang as Jo Deul Ho, Kang So Ra as Lee Eun Jo, Ryu Soo Young as Shin Ji Wook, Park Sol Mi as Jung Hae Gyung, Kim Gab Soo as Shin Young Il

I sneak peeked into it when my mother was watching and ended up watching the later episodes with her. The prosecutor, Deul Ho, is excellent at his job and has unusual ways of making the truth come to light haha, winning every case that he manages to get his hand on. For example, he throws a fake spider at the defendant to cut short his act of sitting in the wheelchair and acting ill to gain sympathy. After that, his life becomes a mess when he tries to prosecute a rich and powerful man, and he even becomes a beggar because of that. Sadly, the friend he made at that time was killed by the rich man’s son and burnt, and he somehow becomes a lawyer to defend the person who was framed for his friend’s murder. After that incident, he attempts to make a comeback and only takes on cases that is in relation to the rich man and his son to make them pay for the crimes they committed.

It is funny how every case/most of the cases throughout the drama are somehow linked to the rich man and son haha. They really committed so many crimes… Amazed when watching how Deul Ho wins each case by all means using unusual and creative methods, and ways a lawyer should not have done. For example, when defending the person who was framed for his friend’s murder, Deul Ho told the defendant to read what he witnessed from a script Deul Ho writes for the defendant which is not ethically right. However, as the defendant tries to memorise and read out the prepared script in court, he ends up remembering what he witnessed that night at court. It is satisfying to watch the rich man and his son’s anxious looks during or after each case, even though the rich man is still powerful enough to ensure his son and his “safety”. However, I feel that Deul Ho is quite biased, only focusing on cases that can cause harm to the rich man and son but I wont say that what he is doing is wrong since he only has a certain amount of time and attention and he cant possibly take every case.

It is interesting to watch the interaction between Deul Ho and his friend, a loan shark. At first, they meet as prosecutor and criminal. Somehow, the loan shark often commits many minor crimes or is being framed, and keeps going to see him to be prosecuted which is how their friendship developed. For most of the parts of the drama, his friend is the one giving him a place to live and giving him the help he needs to solve cases so it shows that we will never know who will help us in times of need haha. Enjoyed watching Deul Ho’s secretary’s exaggerated reactions and facial expressions, and the way she supports Deul Ho in whatever he does.

Liked the development of relationship between Deul Ho and Eun Jo. For a moment, I thought Eun Jo is his separated daughter that grows up to be a lawyer but that is not the case haha. At first, Eun Jo disapproves of his methods to defend the client when working with him but ends up forming an admiration for him, and eventually works with him after resigning from a law firm that mostly defends the rich and powerful (the law firm wanted to get rid of her for her mistake). Was hoping that she will end up with another prosecutor which is righteous but pressured by his father to help the rich man (not sure if that happens because I didnt manage to watch the last few episodes). He is often compared with Deul Ho by his father which makes him unhappy (happens often in dramas). Glad that he manages to see through the evil plans, and get out of his father’s control to do what is right towards the end. His father is an evil and cunning villain who pretends to be a follower of powerful people but is actually the mastermind.


Liked the interaction between Deul Ho and his young daughter which is heartwarming as they keep each other company, make each other happy, and the daughter gives good advice to her father. It is sad that they have to be separated after Deul Ho’s divorce with his wife. His wife wanted stability for her family, and also to protect her father’s law firm which makes me feel that she does not love Deul Ho enough haha. Glad that his wife and his wife’s father change towards the end if not I wont be rooting for the couple/family to reunite.

When I first saw the poster of the drama, I didnt feel like watching it due to lack of eye candies/actors and actresses I like but it turns out to be a thrilling ride with much unexpected humour and twists.

Korean Drama Review RDTK

Decided to write new reviews and edit old reviews at the same time haha… Hopefully I can clear most of my backlog before my school starts! *pant*

Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim (2016-2017) 浪漫醫生金師傅

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Hospital, Melodrama

Enjoyment: 9/10  Pace: 8/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

starring Han Suk Kyu as Kim Sa Bu/ Master Kim, Yoo Yun Suk as Kang Dong Joo, Seo Hyun Jin as Yoon Seo Jung, Yang Se Jong as Do In Bum

Zoom into the characters: After Dong Joo’s father passes away, Dong Joo vows to be a doctor that can defeat the high-ranking doctor, President Do, with skills due to his belief that his father passes away as the high-ranking doctor chose to treat a rich patient instead of his father. However, he ends up doing what the high-rank ing doctor did by choosing to save a patient of high social status to climb the social ladder. Seo Jung, nicknamed “crazy whale”, is a highly skilled doctor at the emergency department who is very calm no matter the situation. Although she has a boyfriend already, she is wavered by Dong Joo and goes missing due to guilt after her boyfriend died in a car accident she was also in. Two of them meet again at Doldam Hospital after different setbacks. Master Kim was a former well-known doctor at the hospital both of them once worked at. After he failed to save his student and was rejected by the medical industry, he now holds on to romantic ideals about being a doctor. Towards the new recruits, he is critical and harsh but provides good guidance to them as the drama goes. Do In Bum is President Do’s son. Although he seems to have it all with his rich father and status, he is more recognised as President Do’s son than himself. He is skilled but sometimes lies to gain experience in operations he has not been involved previously.

Saw this drama’s previews on Channel U which caused me to remember how I dropped it after the first episode one day. I watched it out of curiosity due to reading somewhere that the drama has high rating since the actor that acts as Master Kim is in it. However, after I watched the first episode I found it too cheesy with Dong Joo’s sudden confession and their sudden kiss so I dropped it. Since my sister becomes curious about this drama too, we decided to try it together and we ended up finishing most of it before the first episode is screened on Channel U.

It is a meaningful drama with touching moments and it was fun to watch the many different types of cases at Doldam hospital. Happy that there are not many gross scenes and the surgery processes or clinical treatments are watchable haha (unlike in Hospital Ship which I finished watching 3/4). It is funny whenever it is Friday as there will be a sudden influx of patients which the doctors will have a hard time handling haha.

The cases that are most memorable to me are the multi-collision car accidents at the bend of the road and the lorry/truck hitting a group of cyclists that survived cancer:

Because of 2 young people who drink-drive happily (their drink-driving scene is hilarious) when the road is slippery due to snow, it causes many cars to collide after them as they are not able to see ahead at the bend of the road. There are several touching moments for that incident, especially when one of the casualties is the young daughter of a man trying to find fault with Master Kim under President Do’s orders. Master Kim saves her despite how her father does not allow the ban to be lifted even for his daughter. Liked how Master Kim is consistent in how he treats each patient as equal, and his conviction that in all circumstances, he should try his best to save the patients, no matter the patient is a rapist, the daughter of someone trying to ban him from medical practice, a rich chairman or a AIDS/HIV (?) patient.

Due to illness (?) of a lorry driver, he dozed off while driving and without knowing knocked into cyclists in a single file cycling on the road one by one. The cyclist who saw the lorry should have shouted for the others to avoid it instead of just blowing on the whistle. It is such a waste that they just survived the sufferings of cancer and end up in a fatal accident. This case provides insight to Dong Joo as a doctor too. Dong Joo ends up in a panic and almost wants to give up during the operation as the patient that he could not cure before transferring there had liver cancer too.


Enjoyed watching the interaction between the characters and the development of relationships in Doldam Hospital as more and more new members join them, including those from the big hospital that are there to cause troubles haha. Impressed by Master Kim’s surgical skills, and the ability of the hospital staff to make good use of outdated and poor medical equipment and devices at the start of the drama.

Liked the chemistry between Seo Jung and Dong Joo which is sustained from the start to the end of the drama. Felt that Seo Jung’s mental issues could have been better resolved, especially by including Dong Joo in the recovery process. Enjoyed watching Dong Joo’s growth and struggle as he detaches himself from hospital politics and becomes a true and more skilled doctor. It was heartfelt when he ignores his mother’s phone calls at a difficult time but at one of the times he answered, he is overwhelmed by emotions, and just cries into the phone and his mother just listens.  On a side note, my mother almost dropped this drama when Dong Joo is not at the centre of attention haha…

It is interesting how there is a voiceover mostly by Dong Joo which talks about reality or opinions of matters or the world throughout the drama. Enjoyed how the drama reflects on the purpose of being a doctor: to save patients or to earn more money and climb up the social ladder, as well as issues doctors face on a daily basis. In Doldam Hospital, it is possible to just save patients without caring too much about politics in the hospital. Actually, will the doctors feel that their job is fulfilling just saving patients 24h? Don’t doctors want a rest sometimes or a chance to supervise others in the job? Also felt that there is such great responsibility in this occupation and it becomes more of a duty than a job. On the other hand, it is interesting that the doctors feel more fulfilling when they have patients coming in which gives them a chance to carry out their job and exhibit their skills.

Why you should watch: It is a meaningful drama and I loved the acting of the cast, especially the Doldam Hospital team (Master Kim, Director Yoo, Manager Jang, Nurse Oh, Nurse Park, Anesthetist Nam, later on: Dr Dong Joo, Dr Seo Jung) each person with distinct and likeable personality and characteristics, and the 3 doctors (Dr Song, Dr In Bum, Dr Seo Jung’s friend) that end up being transferred there too.

Korean Web Drama Last Minute Romance

Last Minute Romance (2017)

Cast: Han Seung Yeon as Baek Se, Lee Seo Won as Yoon Dong Joon / Ji Sul Woo(top star)

Episodes: 10

Recommendation: 8.5/10

My Review: This is the first time I have a dilemma on the recommendation points. I did not know whether I should give 8 points or 9 points so I decided to put 8.5 points. It is actually quite a normal plot. It was obvious that they will fall in love, it was obvious that the top star was definitely the complete opposite of Dong Joon and it was obvious and saddening that Baek Se will die regardless. However, I felt that the drama was good as it gave me different types of feeling. For example, I was sad because I knew Baek Se was going to die. It brought me laughter too because Dong Joon acting as the top star and Baek Se acting as the other lead was so cringy and funny. It feels sad that they could not end up together but it was quite a sweet love story to me.

Korean Drama Review IB

Introverted boss (2017) 內向的老闆

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Family, Introversion

Enjoyment: 10/10  Pace: 9/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

starring Yun Woo Jin as Eun Hwan Ki, Park Hye Soo as Chae Ro Woon, Yoon Park as Kang Woo Il and Gong Seung Yun as Eun Yi Soo

Zoom into characters: Hwan Ki is a mysterious introvert who works at the background at his father’s public relations company Brain as a Co-CEO with his best friend, Woo Il, who is always in public eye. Ro Woon has a cheery personality. She once worked in musicals but after her sister’s suicide, she becomes less outspoken at home, and starts to work at the public relation company to dig out the truth behind her sister’s death and to take revenge on the CEO that is rumoured to cause her sister’s death. Woo Il feels guilty for Ro Won’s sister’s death and is afraid that people will find out about it, wanting Hwan Ki to hide the truth. Yi Soo, Hwan Ki’s sister, wants to hold on to Woo Il by all means. Beneath her happy and innocent exterior, she is actually insecure, hurt, and ruthless.


Enjoyed how Yun Woo Jin portrays his character and the character’s emotional struggle! It was a bit exaggerating at the start, somehow his introversion is portrayed more as a mental disorder. As the drama goes, the character is intriguing and quite relatable to me. The shyness, thinking too much and being afraid to interact with people and express opinions: for example the scene where he is unable to tell the barber what hairstyle he wants to cut when he was young, are things I have experienced before or may still experience. It is funny whenever he has long self-dialogues and complicate things for himself before finally reaching a justifiable conclusion in his mind. Sometimes, when that happens, he misses the opportunity to speak haha. It is hilarious when he often dashes away in times of “crises”. I laughed the hardest at the scene about Ro Woon’s ugly face in the phone (watch it to find out). My sister finds his character the cutest of dramas she has seen haha.


Liked how his penthouse office is portrayed as dark and mysterious at the start: Hwan Ki in a black hoody, sharpening his pencils by using a knife in the dark, his whole cupboard filled with many different types of knifes haha when people open it. How convenient that Hwan Ki mostly lives at his penthouse office.


Enjoyed watching how the character, Hwan Ki, grows as he is forced by his father to lead a team of people with distinct characteristics: a mother whose work is affected by her children, a rich family’s son, a person overly critical about others’ work but not producing enough results, a quiet and sensitive person who is lacking in many areas. Most ought to be fired due to their lack of ability so they are sent there. Ro Woon is sent there by Woo Il who feels that her cheery personality can change Hwan Ki. At first, he cant even talk to his team properly or give presentations but slowly manages to join them in meeting, trips and gatherings. Liked how he eventually gains the respect of all his team members and helps them maximise their potential with his keen observation and listening ear. He also manages to gain the trust of his clients with his firm and quiet ways.

Liked how the relationship between Hwan Ki and Ro Woon develops as Hwan Ki opens up more and more to Ro Woon. I read some negative comments about Ro Woon as a character but to me, it was fun to watch her bubbly but reflective nature and her understanding towards Hwan Ki which helps him step out of his comfort zone and leads him to improvement. Impressed by Hwan Ki’s almost-to-be girlfriend who separated with Hwan Ki due to a misunderstanding. She is spontaneous and does not mind a fair competition with Ro Woon or giving up on Hwan Ki even though she knew Hwan Ki earlier and it is mainly Hwan Ki’s fault that they didnt end up together. How I wish most supporting characters are like that!

Woo Il and Yi soo’s relationship is small titbit to the drama and I am happy that they have resolved their relationship and make it a healthy one. Both of them have their strengths and weaknesses and it is nice watching how they play major roles in Hwan Ki’s life. Hwan Ki tries to protect them but sometimes creates more mess haha. From this, I learnt that even as observant introverts, we should not assume that we know everything and we should ask what others think before jumping to conclusion. Liked how Hwan Ki is close to his younger sister, Yi Soo, their sweet interaction and how he cooks delicious meals for her at his office hmmm. Wasnt totally convinced with Ro Woon’s sister’s suicide story but at the moment I cant think of something better that can replace it as Ro Woon’s sister’s story is a major piece in the plot development. :\

Why you should watch: Enjoyed watching this drama a lot! Didnt expect much from it at first due to negative comments about it and how it stopped screening for some time for changes to be made. Became a fan of Yun Woo Jin after this drama. Liked how they dedicated a drama to amplify characteristics of introverts who are often misunderstood in daily life. The characters are well portrayed and the pace is just nice, at least for 5/6 of it.

KBS drama special episodes review

Hi everyone haha!

Due to a lack of dramas that can entertain me a week, I tried watching kbs drama specials with my sister but it didnt turn out too well haha… Every week, I wait for While you were sleeping to be screened. But I remember that when I chased I hear your voice, the anticipation feeling was higher. Tried Borg Mum but after a certain episode when Go Bong becomes extremely worried that he has fallen in love with a robot and escapes from the problem, it didnt attract me anymore. Black is too crime related and involves too much details, though its creepiness and grim are attractive. Even if I do continue, it will be a quick browse through. Hospital Ship, to my sister, is too mature for her liking. I am still continuing it myself mainly to see Kang Min Hyuk haha and the romance between the lead couple, even though I am not entertained enough by the drama.

Kbs drama special episodes I watched in one night

What is the ghost up to? (2015)

 

Liked Lee Joon’s acting since seeing him in Gap Dong and Vampire Detective though I didnt finish both as they are crime related dramas that didnt quite suit my taste. In this one episode, his character is quite funny with his hilarious angry outbursts or his crazy screaming when he sees the ghost haha. His girlfriend broke up with him and her reason/criticism haunts him. Although he does well academically, he seems crippled by her remarks and cannot get a job or move on well in life…until… one day, she returns and wants him to find her boyfriend. He is angry but pities her and decides to help her which leads to a surprise revelation. Shall not give too much spoiler haha. Towards the end, I actually felt tears flowing out of my eyes even though I skipped through certain parts in between towards the end. At the first time I watched, I was hit hard due to the words she wrote in her notes and the second time I watched with my sister that night, it was at the final “pop goes the weasel” part.

You can watch it in Youtube.

Next, I decided to watch something that looks nice on the cover.

If we were a season (KBS Drama special 2017 Episode 1)

Like the title haha! The development of the relationship of the lead characters is well portrayed from young to their high school days and nights, showing how they play or pass messages through a window between their houses from young to how they naturally watch out for each other in school. The scenery and weather fit nicely with the plot and beautifies the story. It is a typical love triangle story but I liked the lead couple’s acting and chemistry. Liked Jang Dong-Yoon here more than in School 2017. Jin Young’s character has no place in between them haha. My sister is a fan of Jin Young but she says he looks out of place as he doesnt even look like a high schooler, like the rest of them haha. She feels that when he jokes with Chae Soo Bin’s character, it felt cold instead of cheesy. I was quite baffled by the family background story towards the end. When I reached the ending, I felt like shouting at the screen “No…Why?!” :/

Things seem to be going downhill.

Finally, my last episode of the night

Waltzing Alone (KBS Drama special 2017 Episode 4)

When I looked at the title, I should have been warned. But unfortunately, when I browsed through YouTube quickly, none of the pictures or plots of other drama special episodes attracted me so I thought I should give it a try. Maybe it will turn out to be a beautiful heartwarming story?

The story especially at the start is beautiful but unfortunately it wasnt heartwarming but heartbreaking. The lingering regrets and heartbreaks of the episode, especially when they had their final breakdown, was hard to get rid of haha. And when I am writing this, the feeling is coming back aaahhhh. Loved the dancing of waltz (something I want to learn one day haha) as the theme throughout the episode, especially at the start where the scenes showed how the lead couple danced through life together, depicted through the different attires and locations as they dance and dance and dance. (Yeo Hoi-Hyeon looks more and more good looking as the episode goes haha.) It is romantic and whenever they dance or are in the waltz footwork they seem blissful, shielded from the harsh reality of the world.



However, the reality of the competitive corporate life and the pressure to get a permanent job soon catch up with both of them as they are rejected by one company after another. When they had to compete for the same job position, it turns out to be a cruel battle which could have been resolved if they decide to have a fair competition. 😦

Lesson learnt:  Not going to have too much kbs drama special in one dose since it is bound to affect my mood. Maybe once a month haha? Wonder if all of them end up sad? Haha, but I think I will stay away from them for a while…  If you are looking for a so-called movie or want to borrow something’s help to cry and release stress or just want to feel “stabbed” or give yourself a reason to be sad, maybe you can try them.

Korean Drama Review TRMW

Third-Rate/ Fight for my way (2017) 三流之路

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Family, Sports, Dream

Enjoyment: 9/10  Pace: 8/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

starring Park Seo Joon as Ko Dong Man, Jo Yun Ho as Dong Man (child), Kim Ji Won as Choi Ae Ra, Lee Han Seo as Ae Ra (child), Ahn Jae Hong as Kim Joo Man, Song Ha Yoon as Baek Sul Hee

Zoom into characters: Dong Man excels in Taekwondo. However, since he helped someone cheat in a competition, he does not compete anymore and settles for a more average life as a pest control officer. Ae Ra has the potential to become a news anchor due to her talent in improvising and her passion for reporting but due to her academic results, she was rejected by many news stations and ends up as a receptionist at a department store. Joo Man seems to be leading the best life among the friends but no matter how hard he works and how good the results he obtained, he is still unable to further promote due to his lack of connection with those who are rich and have power. Because of that, he is unable to marry Sul Hee or even announce their relationship at work.

Wasn’t quite interested in watching this drama as the summary seems quite plain. But decided to watch it after reading in Dramabeans recap about Dong Man’s struggle to choose between winning the competition and money for his sister’s operation. This drama is like a portrayal of reality where life is tough and we may not be able to do what we want in life. My sister enjoyed watching the scenes when Dong Man does flying kicks at the villain but sadly there aren’t enough of those scenes haha.

fight for my way 1
Liked the development of relationship between Dong Man and Ae Ra who turn from best friends to boyfriend-girlfriend. Especially liked how Dong Man understands Ae Ra and is always there for her whenever she meets difficulty and trouble, including how he naturally shields her from others when she cries. Is it possible for people of opposite genders to remain best friends? The adding of a guy who tried to get back at Dong Man by dating Ae Ra is an unexpected plot twist. It helped both of them get in touch with their true feelings. I thought that he is just a random love rival but he has such underlying motive. Seems like usually those that have more are jealous of those with less. I guess if you keep comparing with others instead of looking at what you have, and keep hatred with you, you will only leave yourself in misery which is the outcome of that guy’s actions.

Liked Ae Ra’s fighting spirit and how she is confident about her ability no matter how others try to put her down. I feel that her father is a good supporter of her. Most parents would have asked her to face reality but he is always proud whenever his daughter has an opportunity to emcee, and when she is being rejected, he tells her that that stage is too small for her and she deserves a better stage. Dong Man also has similar fighting spirit when it comes to winning in Taekwondo. I was happy when he finally quits his job as his superior often freeloads off him and when things go wrong, puts the blame on him.

It was heartbreaking when Dong Man is severely injured in one round of competition with the coward villain competitor and still shouts that he wants to continue the match since he waited so long for it. However, I felt that Dong Man’s struggle did not shine throughout the drama as compared to Ae Ra’s one. Perhaps, because most of the time in the drama, Dong Man has either totally given up on his dream or he is winning competitions while Ae Ra has hope but has too many obstacles to overcome? I felt that there could be more struggles, touching moments and flashbacks for Dong Man throughout the drama and not just mainly towards the end.

fight for my way
This drama also examines the danger of sport careers felt deeply when Ae Ra cant bear to watch the Taekwondo matches that Dong Man is in and when Dong Man almost went deaf which makes me wonder if I will support people close to me if they want to pursue such careers? It is an interesting point of view as usually when watching such competitions in drama, I only think of wanting the person to win.

Liked the portrayal of the development of relationship between the 4 friends from young. It is so nice that the 4 friends live next door to each other, eat their breakfast together, set out for work each day together, even paying each other unexpected visits haha. Although I feel that Joo Man is quite incapable, at times he manages to “reclaim” himself when he stands up for Sul Hee, towards his family who bully Sul Hee, towards his superior, making me feel touched. Although the conflict between Joo Man and Sul Hee is nice titbit, I felt that it was a bit slow pace, and I liked the moments that show their devotion to each other more.

Felt that the coach is quite funny, selling sundae near areas Dong Man will pass by to persuade him to do Taekwondo again and many other actions he does. Admired how long he waited for Dong Man to return, believing that he will one day. Maybe because Dong Man’s success is his dream and his pathway to a stable income haha?

Why you should watch: The struggle and fighting spirit of the 4 main characters, especially the lead couple, kept me going.

Favourite MVs+osts: Ambiguous by Seo Eun Kwang, Lim Hyun Sik, Yook Sung Jae

Nightmare Teacher (2016) Korean Web Drama

Nightmare Teacher Korean Web Drama (2016)

Cast: Uhm Ki Joon as Han Bong Goo, Kim So Hyun as Kang Ye Rim, Lee Min Hyuk as Seo Sang Woo

Episodes: 12

Recommendation: 7/10, 8/10 for creepiness

The creepiest part beside the teacher having different types of dark magical power is that when the students disappear, everyone in the class seems to forget that they exist.  There are always horrific side effects accompanying the benefits of the item the teacher offers to the students to satisfy their desire. Thankfully, Kim So Hyun’s character starts to realise what is happening in the class, partially due to Lee Min Hyuk’s character’s hobby of taking photographs, but she herself has to face her own horror test.

The item that left the deepest impression on me is the can of drink the teacher offered. When drinking it, the student’s memory improves dramatically and he starts to top his class in examinations and becomes regarded as smart. However, after some time, he starts to have to write down his own name, his friend’s name and home address on his hand as he starts to forget all the ‘minor’ details that are important to him.
