My Only Love Song(2017)
Queen of The Ring (2017)

Review: This web drama is part of the three colour fantasy and it is about Nan Hee who is ugly whose look was not accepted by others. Se Gun is a handsome clothes designer who like pretty girls. One day, they chance upon each other at a model show(details please watch the drama). She fell in love with him but did not know what to do as she was not pretty and attractive. Nan Hee’s mother gave her a ring which make her look pretty in the eyes of Se Gun in order to date with him.
Want to find out more? Please watch the drama to know what happens after that.
My review: It has been long time since I have the urge to watch drama. But the drama definitely relates to me very well and makes me have a deeper understanding of love, which is to accept one self despite of her outlooks or shortcomings. I was quite happy that they ended up together(I have always been waiting for that since the start of the drama). From this drama, I better understand that the beauty that comes from within makes a person most beautiful. So, we shall never judge a book by its cover. This is definitely a very sweet and cute storyline. I really hope everyone’s true love will like each other truthfully and not hide your real personalities to the people you love. If you want to find out what truly makes a relationship work for a long time?
The Miracle (2017)
Cast: Kim Na Hyun as Kwon Shi Ah, Hong Yoon Hwa as Kwon Shi Yeon, Kim Dong Hyun as Ban Hae Sung and Yang Hak Jin as Han Gyo Seok
Reviews: It is about a fraternal twin who live completely different lives as Kwon Shi Ah has looks and everything while Kwon Shi Yeon does not. Kwon Shi Ah is a rude girl who became an idol and joined a kpop group to show that her popularity can help the group. She was not in good terms with Ban Hae Sung as they criticised each other when they had to be advertisers of a product. While Kwon Shi Ah gains such huge popularity, Kwon Shi Yeon prefers staying at home and record her voice and songs in her own radio station without showing her look.
One day, Kwon Shi Yeon saved a taror card reader while searching for his dog and the tarot card reader let her choose a card. She got “The Miracle” card which nobody picked before and she got to choose a wish she truly wanted, which was to change looks with her sister and was given a wishing charm. The journey continues as both sisters experience each other’s life. Did them switching lives make them a better person? What are some challenges they will face in this journey? Is Shi Yeon happy after living Si Ah’s life? And what is the wishing charm for? Watch to find out more.
My review: I realise many fantasy web dramas have a moral of the story behind it. Firstly, this show teach us not to be greedy of what others have and be contented with everythinf we have. Kwon Shi Yeon is happy living Kwon Si Ah’s life as she started loving Ban Hae Sung. This resulted her in being more greedy and wishing for things using the wishing charm, which has a consequence behind every wish and this may hurt the people you love. Secondly, no matter how you look, you will definitely still be precious in the eyes of the one who loves you for looks is not what that is the most important.
I really enjoyed watching this show as the twins improved each other’s life when they switched body and of course the love stories in the show, especially how the sisters came to live each other. It is definitely one of the good fantasy korean web drama I watched.
Seven First Kisses(2017)
Cast: Choi Ji Woo, Soo Jin, Lee Joon Gi, Park Hae Jin, Ji Chang Wook, EXO Kai, Taecyeon, Lee Jong Suk, Lee Min Ho
Review: Soo Jin is a lady who had not dated before in her whole life. She works in Lotte Duty free at the information counter. One day, Choi Ji Woo came and ask questions at the counter and she left her notebook there by accident. Soo Jin went to find her and give he4 back her notebook and Choi Ji Woo thanked her by giving her a wish. Soo Jin said in her mind that she wanted to date and this how the six guys came about.
The first guy is Lee Joon Ki who liked her since young and confessed to her with flowers. The second guy is Park Hae Jin who is the boss of the Lotte Duty Free and saved her when she was in danger. The third is Ji Chang Wook who is a secret angent and fell in love with her who was an ex-secret agent. The fourth is EXO Kai who was her student who fall in love with her. The fifth is Taecyeon who is a rich guy and decided to relinquish his inheritance to marry Soo Jin. The sixth is Lee Jong Suk, a famous celebrity who took a photoshoot with Soo Jin.
When Soo Jin kissed them, she will return back to reality. She was sad. Choi Ji Woo came to her and told her that she could only choose one of them.
There is a bonus episode in the show where travel writer Lee Min Ho comes to the Lotte Duty Free counter and ask for help and Soo Jin thought he came for her, which was after that true
My review: Honestly, I watched this show because I wanted to know how they end the story. How the guys came here were like magic so I thought that they will actually be gone after that and Soo Jin finds her true love. It is actually quite difficult to choose among them as they all look quite good, so if I were her, I would not choose any but go back to my current state of life. Overall, the show is quite okay and it shows the different types of love that happen in drama.

Page Turner Korean Drama (2016)
Review: Yoon Yoo Seol is a girl who was driven by her mother to play the piano. Her mother taught Suh Jin Mok piano when he was young but he played like a machine. Her mother told him to play properly and he thinks that his playing was the same and was good. So he told his father to sack her. Yoo Seol was unhappy and played it the way her mother wanted him to play like. Her mother was shocked that Yoo Seol could play the piano when she did not learn piano. Her mother decided to make her into a pianist. However, it was not her wish. Although she won numerous awards, she was not happy. One day, she got into an accident and lost her sight forever. Her mother still wanted her to play piano despite her losing her eyesight, which made her want to commit suicide. Jun Mok felt very sorry because he prayed for her to be gone and now she really lost her eyesight. She was fortunate that she was saved by Jung Cha Sik from committing suicide.
Jung Cha Sik was a high jump player and loves high jump. Jung Cha Sik beat the school record of high jumping because he did not want the rich couple to look down at his mother. However, when he tried to jump higher, he hurt himself and could never jump again, which brought him into despair. He tired hard not to show his despair in front of his mother and almost wanted to commit suicide too and he sees Yoo Seol and managed to save her from suicide. Jung Cha Sik’s mother knew Cha Sik was in despair and tricked him by saying his father was a famous pianist, which made him practise piano really hard and went to the music school Yoo Seol was in and be her guide. He even wanted Yoo Seol to teach him how to play and enter a competition together. He bet with the other students that if he won the competition, they had to believe that his father is that pianist.
On the actual competition, he realises the truth that his father is not that pianist. He also could not play well so he gave the chance to Ju Mok to play with Yoo Seol. Cha Sik was sad about it and showed to his mother that he could play very well too as her son, which he did. All of them found their dreams and happiness at the same time.
Personal feelings: Weirdly I somehow ship Yoo Seol and Ju Mok because I can feel Ju Mok being sorry for her and trying to do things for her. However, I decided I shall not ship anyone because I think this show is not about couples but about finding happiness in one self. It was overall a nice show that made me cry the first episode and feel happy the last episode.
Click Your Heart (2016)
Let me write the first couple I chose to watch first. I have a feeling that my sister will choose Ro Woon too over the angel boy, Chan Hee, although I think Chan Hee is quite cute also. Ro Woon is a baseball player who does not really have any friends. The broadcasting club members all failed to get an interview from him until Mina came into the club. She is very nice and she tried to interview him but realised he was tired and decided not to, which he found it cute. He hurt his hand by catching that baseball with his bare hand to save Mina from being hit. Mina felt sorry and became her slave by helping him move stuff. When Ro Woon confessed, she was confused about her feelings and so Ro Woon says if he wins the baseball match, he will ask him again and they got together. I feel that this couple is quite a nice combination from the start. I actually feel quite sorry for the friend who liked her but she being confused and still choose Ro Woon did not hurt anyone.(You will only see this if you choose him as the one)
Next up, I decided to watch ep 5, which was Da Won, her friend who got together with her. So Mina said that he was only his friend. Da Won was hurt, which make me feel sad too. I mean, even if you don’t like him, he likes her so she should not hurt him. That episode almost brought me tears because Da Won tried to pretend she did not see her and was hurt. And he told her about the promise they did which was when he grew one hand taller than her, she will date him. Mina also pondered whether she like him or not. Just nice, the guy’s written story was on broadcast. That broadcast kind of a confession and kind of his real feelings was so nice!!!!! Anyway, Mina and Da Won did a broadcast together and their broadcast member accidentally press something and the whole school heard Mina saying she was sorry and she liked him. Da Won hugged him and it was a happy ending. So cute couple.(You will only see this if you click him)
So next one not my order of liking, is Chan Hee. He looks too cute and cheerie and such a nice guy. Anyway, he was not scared of Mina despite her being unlucky. He likes to dance a lot and does not mind skipping classes and appears everywhere Mina is. You will actually find out that he is kind of his spirit who came out. He knew her since an accident that happened which involves the other guy, which was her ex-boyfriend. He also told her is not her fault despite him being on bed now and could not wake up after the accident that happened He always likes to say “My third fantasy came true”(something like that) after he liked Mina. Haha. Anyway, Mina found out that he was on bed 100 days already because of an accident and was shocked by it and went to find him. So he kissed her on her forehead before he left. Luckily, he managed to be alive and they meet each other again. And he said, “My fantasy came true.”OMG, that was what I was going to say. (You will only see this with you click him)
The last one is actually her ex-boyfriend whom I said who was involved in an accident, Ju Ho. He was her ex-boyfriend in her previous school but she decided to break up with him because she always cause him to be unlucky. On the day she wanted to ask for a break-up, he got into an accident and she did not dare to go see him because she felt guilty and thought it was her fault. Anyway, they got back together(if you decided to choose him as the one)
In conclusion, Mina is a lucky girl who gets a guy no matter what happens. And I quite like this show’s format as we can choose what our heart choose. Actually, I like all the plots and I like all the couples. No preference or anything. It is quite a nice show so I hope you will enjoy watching no matter which couple you chose.
Nightmare Teacher Korean Web Drama (2016)
Splash Splash Love(2015)
Reviews: Dan Bi is a senior high school student who is also an applicant for the College Scholastic Ability Test. She gave up studying math. On the day of the test, she feared to go for the test and dropped into a puddle of water where she fell into time lapse and lands somewhere in Joseon era. She landed in the pot of water where the people are doing for rain-to-fall ceremony. They ask her who she was and she said she was a high school senior but it sounds like Gosam and people wanted to kill her. Due to her knowing many things, like math, which helps in dealing the country’s problem, Lee Do made her as a helping hand. She then falls in love with Lee Do and so does Lee Do.
My Personal Review: I got attracted to this show because Dan Bi dropped into the pot of water when she time lapsed. That’s why I got interested and watched this show. I somehow knew how the plot will go because I’m sure time-lapsed things always turns out to be a romance, like Rooftop Prince, and Queen In Hyun’s Man. It’s fascinating how the subordinate’s brother know that Dan Bi is a woman. Haha. By the way, my sister was shocked that this web drama only consists of 2 episodes but I think it is just right. Not too long or too short and it was an enjoyment to watch this drama.

Falling For Challenge/Falling For Do Jeon Web Drama(2015)
Cast: Kim So Eun as Ban Hana and Xiumin(EXO) as Do Jeon
Review: Na Do Jeon is a timid but bright boy who works part-time as a Pierrot clown because he genuinely loves making people laugh and he is also being influenced by his father who is also a Pierrot clown. When his father die when Do Jeon was at a young age, he could only remember his father in the Pierrot clown suit as his father wore it most of the time. Na Do Jeon strongly believes that a clown should never talk. if not it will spoil the meaning of a clown. Ban Hana is a girl dreaming of starting her own food truck. She is also the president of the ‘One Plus’ hobby club, which the school wants to close. That club’s theme is to challenge something new. The first time she ran into Do Jeon was when she was being chased by a guy because she spilled water at his clothes while running a marathon. Xiumin managed to save her by directing that man into another place. Do Jeon also helped her another time when the director when he asked her if there was a new member in the club. Just nice Do Jeon walked past and he joined the club as such. In the club, they were supposed to do new challenges and Do Jeon and Ban Hana chose Pierrot. Their club learnt Pierrot from Do Jeon even though the other club members did not like it at first. However, during the day of performance, a young girl, who lived in the house that Do Jeon rented a room from, went missing after hearing that she was going to be sent to America. Do Jeon went to find her. The whole club also did not perform as they decided to find the girl. Fortunately, the girl just went to bought her grandfather medicine after hearing that he wants to send her to America to her parents because he was ill. This was so touching. So the club decided to put up a Pierrot show for the kids and they managed to revive the club ad go on TV as they did something meaningful as a challenge. Anyway, in this show, Do Jeon and Hana slowly liked each other and Hana made her first move by kissing Do Jeon on his cheeks. As she felt embarrassed due to confessing her love first, she said that the kiss was a mistake due to drinking. Do Jeon was so innocent and thought Hana rejected him. When Hana told him it was not like that, he realised the truth and said it was a new challenge for him through the camera. That is the end of the drama.
Because It’s The First Time Web Drama(2015)

Attention: There may be spoilers in this review
Sassy Go Go Korean Drama(2015)
Cast: Jung Eun Ji as Kang Yeon Doo, Lee Won Geun as Kim Yeol, Ji Soo as Seo Ha Joon, Cha Ha Kyun as Ha Dong Jae, Chae Soo Bin as Kwon Soo Ah.
This show has things that are used repeatedly, like the “One,…, Two…, Three, …” and “There are friends that will do things with you”, “There are teachers who will stand by you no matter what. Love it!!
And I love both Kim Yeol’s and Seo Ha Joon’s confession, with Kim Yeol, the cheesy fashion, Awwww, and Seo Ha Joon who used the gummy bear to express his feelings. Love it!!!
And I love the strawberry milk thingy. Because they used this as a plot. Like Ha Joon and Kim Yeol jealous about Kang Yeon Doo and Ha Dong Jae drinking that strawbeery milk, Kim Yeol wanting Kang Yeon Doo to drink banana milk to show that they are different and at the end, Kwon Soo Ah stealing the strawberry milk which was meant for Kang Yeon Doo.
I feel that this show is too short so there were some things that were closed pretty quickly, like how Kim Yeol decided to let his father and Kang Yeon Doo’s mother be together and how Seo Ha Joon decided to just let Kim Yeol have Kang Yeon Doo. Seo Ha Joon is too good for a man and a brother already, giving up Kang Yeon Doo instead of snatching from Kim Yeol, his bro.But anyway, I still ship Kim Yeol and Kang Yeon Doo but I pity Ha Joon. Hope Ji Soo gets a role where I can ship him all I want. But overall was good, just feeling that the last episode is a little rush.

Recommended Ost: 엑스텐 (X10) – 달을 삼켜 버려
Cast: Song Ha Yoon , JB , Jr and other Got7 members
Review: Joo In Hyung’s mother gave In Hyung four dolls when she was a little, which she named JB, Mark, Jackson and Youngjae. She liked JB the best among all the dolls. When her mother passed away, she shred tears of sadness on the dolls, which became his dream knights and came to live. One day, the four dream knights came to her house and wanted to sleep on her bed. She was shocked and tired to get them out of her house. One of the scenes was throwing a pail of water onto them. The four of them disappeared as knights cannot get in contact with water.So the dolls became wet too. Anyway, it should be around that part when she realised that they were the dolls.
My own review: I feel that Jr doing all this is only trying to prove himself correct that it was right to betray his owner. And I feel that this drama is quite sad because the four knights had to disappear and I feel that no matter who is gone, the party living will be sad. I would like to especially comment about a couple I ship, which is Jackson and Min. It is actually quite sad that he cannot go with Min because he had to sacrifice himself for In Hyung as well. This is one that I felt pity about as he cannot be with her.

After School: Lucky or Not
Cast: Kim So Eun, Seo Kang Joon, Kang Tae Oh, Gong Myung, Yoo II, Lee Tae Hwan
Kim So Eun was invited by the four boys to the Pick-A-Mission club as it was a wish made by Kang Tae Oh who passed away due to an illness. Kang Tae Oh and Seo Kang Joon both had a crush on Kim So Eun and Kang Tae Oh made a wish to Seo Kang Joon to not like Kim So Eun.
My review: Actually I had watched this show already but I forgot about it until somebody commented about it. I find the show hilarious as the guys are very funny and the missions they carry out are also funny. Also, I felt that the reason of why Kim So Eun was invited to the group was kind of expected. I felt that the ending should have kind of shown who went with Kim So Eun so that the plot will be more filled up. Overall it was still an okay drama.
