Love Alarm (2019)

Love Alarm (2019)

Cast: Kim So Hyun as Kim Jojo, Song Kang as Hwang Sun Oh, Jung Ga-ram as Lee Hye-young

Episodes: 8

Recommendation: 6/10

My Own Review:

Apologies if the review is not super accurate as I watched part of the drama and skimmed through part of the drama.

I watched this drama because I wanted to know how the Love Alarm Application actually works and how it is actually being used in the drama. I personally quite like how the Love Alarm Application is able to let me know whether I love someone and whether the someone loves me or not (as long as there are only 2 of us in the 10 metre radius). Just like how Kim Jojo and Hwang Sun Oh rings each other’s love alarm when only the 2 of them are together. But I feel that my alarm being ringed by someone I do not know can be quite creepy as well. I would prefer the love alarm only ringing if it is a mutual love (since the aim of this application should be telling each other that they love each other and form a couple).

I like how the drama not only use the application to form couples but also let people confirm that they do not love for each other. This is evident from Kim Jojo and her ex-boyfriend being able to confirm that they do not love each other with the application. But actually without the application, it is quite obvious that they do not even love each other as her ex-boyfriend does not even share sorrows with her and Kim Jojo does not even trust her ex-boyfriend enough to share her sorrows with him. However, this application gave a concrete evidence that they do not love each other and helped Kim Jojo to end this bad relationship.

Spoiler: For some time, Kim Jojo actually installed another application to prevent ringing Hwang Sun Oh’s love alarm despite her still liking him. I felt very upset by that and I am unable to accept it as she did that just because she felt small and scared the more she date him (if I am not wrong). She used the Love Alarm Application to show that she does not like him anymore. It was so heart-breaking at the moment. But the most heart-breaking thing is Hwang Sun Oh’s alarm will always and only ring for Kim Jojo even if Kim Jojo does not ring his alarm anymore. The contrast of them always ringing each other’s alarm to confirm their love makes it even more sad.

However, the reason why I gave 6/10 is because the parts that I want it fast is slow and the parts that I want is slow is fast.

I hate you Juliet (2019) Korean Web Drama

 

I hate you Juliet (2019)

Cast: Lee Hong Ki as Cha Yool, Jung Hye Sung as Goo Na Ra, Choi Woong as Bong Joon Mo, Moon Soo Bin as Lee Soo Ji, Kim Bo Mi as Lee Young Joo

Episodes: 18

Recommendation: 7/10

My own review:

Ignored this drama at first due to its posters haha but later on I happened to read the plot of the drama and it includes fantasy (Yool can hear Na Ra’s thoughts) so I decided to try it. Luckily I tried it haha.

Liked how the drama is set in the school setting which makes Yool more equal with the other students since he is already a celebrity. Laughed a lot in this drama, mostly due to Yool. For example, when he tries all ways to figure out the rule in order for him to hear Na Ra’s thoughts such as by spraying water at her, patting everyone’s heads etc. and Na Ra thinks it is because he received a strange role and he is practising acting. It is funny how Yool has such a poor sense of direction and gets lost easily. It was fun watching him when he is lost or his face when he awkwardly waits for people to direct him. It is funny how Na Ra is such a poor driver and also how she has a crush on Joon Mo and recites his personal details when people mention him or to confirm his identity. Liked how Yool comes off as straightforward but without any sense of arrogance. Yool’s past adds more depth to the character, though I felt that there could have been a better resolution to that eg., the mother apologising. Enjoyed watching the interactions between Yool and Na Ra, and also among the group of students. Felt that the transition of relationship between Yool and Na Ra from friends to lovers was too abrupt and wasnt done properly.

The interaction between Soo Ji and her father is interesting. The story between Yool’s mother and Na Ra’s mother is funny. I am not sure how the drama fits its name since I dont see any hatred at all or how the plot relates to the story of Romeo and Juliet.

Had looked out for Lee Hong Ki’s drama since Bride of the Century and was happy that this drama was good enough. Want to see Lee Hong Ki act more cold guy/bad boy roles haha.

Go, Back Diary (2018) Korean Web Drama

Go, Back Diary (2018)

Cast: Kim Ye Ji as Lee Hyun Bi, Lee Jong Won as Do Jae Hyun

Episodes: 4

Recommendation: 6.5/10

My own review:

I feel that the scenarios in this drama are quite common. Examples are love at first sight, Lee Hyun Bi not liking her boyfriend’s childhood friend e.t.c.

Although it is typical, I gave a 6.5 mark as I liked the ending of the show, which leaves a strong impact on the audience. I will not tell you why is it an impact as it will be too much of a spoiler and you may give up on watching the drama before even starting. But I will tell you what is the ending part of the drama, which was how they promised each other that they will be together forever when they were teenagers.

My Only Love Song (2017) Korean Web Drama

  

My Only Love Song(2017)

Episodes: 20

Cast: Lee Jong Hyun as On Dal, Gong Seung Yun as Sang Soo Jung, Lee Jae Jin as Byun Sam Yong, Kim Yeon Seo as Princess Pyunggang, Ahn Bo Hyun as Moo Myung

Recommendation: 8/10

My Own Review:

I watched this drama too long ago and went to re-watch the first few episodes but I cannot really seem to find the actual feeling I had previously. So I will just write what I remembered I felt in this drama and my current feeling of this drama.

When I first watched this drama, I remembered I laughed a lot as Sang Soo Jung was quite funny. Examples of scenes that are funny are when she scolded the cast, when she did a flying kick on the actress who was going to marry her boyfriend and when she thought that the historical period that she was in was an acting scene e.t.c. Although she is quite noisy, I do not feel that she was irritating as I feel that this is how the character is supposed to be. Gong Seung Yun did well in portraying Sang Soo Jung’s character.

One thing I liked about the drama is the historical drama car, boong boong. In the historical time period, the car only operates when On Dal is in the car. The car helped Sang Soo Jung and other people in the car to escape from danger and make On Dal and Princess Pyunggang meet. I feel that this car is quite meaningful and helpful at times and that is why I wrote about it.

Another thing I liked about the drama is Princess Pyunggang’s and Moo Myung’s communication method. Moo Myung does not talk at all in real life but he talks a lot in his brain. Only Princess Pyunggang knows what he is talking about. I wonder is this telepathy or something but I really liked how they could communicate in such a special way.

A-teen (2018) Korean Web Drama

A-teen (2018)

Cast: Shin Ye Eun as Do Hana, Lee Na Eun as Kim Hana, Kim Soo Hyun as Yeo Bo Ram, Kim Dong Hee as Ha Min, Shin Seung Ho as Nam Shi Woo and Ryu Eui Hyun as Cha Gi Hyun

Recommendation: 4/10

Episodes: 24

My Own Review:

I feel that this drama is kind of typical as it just talking about a teenager’s life and what they can experience. Examples of some typical plots are a teenager having a crush on a friend, a teenager feeling left out as they were in a trio group, a teenager hiding the truth that she is from a poor family by saying that she is rich, a teenager who likes his tutor e.t.c.

Among all the typical story lines, I quite relate to the one which the teenager felt left out as they were in a trio group. This is because I am usually in that situation when I was in Secondary School. But at least the friends of this teenager does not really leave her out. It is just they do not really know her well.

The typical story line I liked best was the one that Cha Gi Hyun and Yeo Boram become a couple. Cha Gi Hyun liked Yeo Boram for a long time and did not confess her feelings as Yeo Boram was dating another guy at first. Yeo Boram’s boyfriend break up with her and another guy in the school started to pursue the love of Yeo Boram. This is when Cha Gi Hyun started to get jealous which made Yeo Boram know that he likes her.

I was going to give a 6/10 at first but the more I watch, the more I feel that it is typical. I feel that the drama will be better if they could put more funny elements as being a teenager should be more joyful.

Watch “A-teen” for the typical life of a teenager.

No Time For Love (2018) Korean Web Drama

No Time For Love Korean Web Drama (2018)

Cast: (I am sorry I cannot really give you all the names of the cast as I am unsure what are their names)

Episodes: 8

Recommendation: 6+1/10 (added one because I feel that the drama is not that draggy and slow pace which is suitable for more impatient people like me)

My Own Review:

Haizzz…. It is really a drama drought these days and I cannot seem to find any dramas that are of my liking. So I randomly watched videos in Youtube and found this short drama. I like how this drama is not very draggy (as I am considered a more impatient person and dislike drags). But what I like most about this drama is that it shows the different perspectives of the characters and how they feel and think, which makes it kind of special. The characters seem to be sharing their little story to us, who are their audiences and this makes the audiences feel more close to them as we seem to understand them after hearing them out.

I am… Korean Web Drama

I am… (2017)

Episodes: 6

Cast: Jung Chae Yeon as Annie

Recommendation: 6/10

My Own Review: Although Annie was created using the memory of the scientist’s wife, she said that she was not the scientist’s wife. I like how Annie can feel unique although her memories and character is just an input done by the scientist. Overall, this drama is considered okay but it will be best if the artificial intelligence’s character is more complex and evoke more feelings.

Magic School Korean Web Drama

Magic School (2017)

Cast: Jin Young as Lee Na-Ra, Nickhun as Joon, Yoon Park as Jae, Kang Yoon-Je as Lee Sung, Ryu Seung Soo as Master Han, Shin Eun Soo as Han Yi-Seul, Park Gyu-Young as Woo-Ri, Nam Sung Joon as Kim Jong-Man and Park Joo-hyung as Kei

Episodes: 16

Recommendation: 6/10

I did not finish watching this drama so if the review of the show is not that accurate, please understand. Thank you.

My Own Review: I watched this drama thinking that they are witches and wizards but it was not the case haha… I probably did not read the sypnosis and just watched it. But the reason why I dropped it was because the plot was not very interesting to me and I had a hard time loading the video to watch it previously. Maybe I will try watching again when I suddenly feel like watching magic tricks. I quite like the part that Joon was fascinated by the magic done by the magic school but the children in the hospital were totally indifferent towards the magic hahaha…

Somehow 18 Korean Web Drama

Somehow 18 (2017)

Cast: Choi Min Ho as Oh Kyung Hwi, Lee Yoo Bi as Han Na Bi

Episodes: 10

Recommendation: 6/10

Short Synopsis: Oh Kyung Hwi went back to the past to save Han Na Bi, his first love, from dying.

My Own Review: It is quite funny how people become stronger and make better decisions when they go back to the past. It must be because they have gone through all the hardships and happenings and also become more mature through the experiences they faced. Oh Kyung Hwi was bullied previously but when he went back to the past, he did not allow himself to get bullied. He become more brave and the bullies did not bully him because of that. I like how Oh Kyung Hwi can kind of “predict the future” since he have gone through what happened in the past. For example, Oh Kyung Hwi knew that the bullies will hit him with a ball and he easily dodged from the ball. This ended up hitting one of the bully haha. This must be self-inflicted karma.
