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)
Recommendation: 7/10, 8/10 for creepiness
Creepy teacher that makes students in the class suffer by making use of their innermost desire. Is it possible to end the nightmare in the class as more and more students start to disappear after they meet this teacher in his staffroom?
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.
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.

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.
Review: Due to the different status due to academic standing, they are treated differently, like the ones with bad academic results will not have electricity and has a small room to be in. Dance Club, Real King fought with the highest status in school cheerleading club, Baek Ho, which is only by name a cheerleading club, and got into a fight, which caused Real King to be stepped down right away as clubs that disturb another club will be abolished. Since Real King has a lower status, they are being abolished. Kang Yeon Doo decided to talk with Kim Yeol for an agreement but ended up falling on him, which seemed like a kissing scene, and was being captured by Kwon Soo Ah, which resulted in the club being abolished. Kang Yeon Doo feels that it is unfair and did a lot of things with her fellow mates to get back their club, but it turned out to be having more punishment points instead. Kang Yeon Doo realised that Kwon Soo Ah, who is her friend, actually sent the picture to the teacher. She was very sad. Kwon Soo Ah did many more bad things, which I will be saying later.
Kang Yeon Doo and Ha Dong Jae are good friends and Ha Dong Jae had a phoebia of being in contact with others as he accidentally pushed Kang Yeon Doo down. Kwon Soo Ah used this weakness of him by asking the opponent basketball mates to get into physical contact with him to threaten Kang Yeon Doo. Kwon Soo Ah even pushed Kang Yeon Doo down the stairs when she was being reviewed of the truth of her stealing the examination papers. Kim Yeol threw himself to catch Kang Yeon Doo to prevent her from being hurt. Anyway, Kwon Soo Ah did many more bad things like creating a cheerleading club that consist of Real King and Baek Ho to help her specs to go to a good overseas school. She even told the principal about Ha Joon cutting himself so that the principal can threaten Kim Yeol to persuade Real King to do the specs with them. Anyway, she did many horrible things, and it was partially because of the mother that she had came thus far. In the last few episodes, with the whole cheerleading club’s support, she decided to go back to school and repent on her mistake.
Now, moving on to Kang Yeon Doo and Ha Joon. At first, Ha Joon did not really like Kang Yeon Doo for she was very nosy and liked to care about people’s business. But Ha Joon started having feelings for Kang Yeon Doo when Kang Yeon Doo gave him band-aids when he is hurt. Feelings of him to Kang Yeon Do started to grow. It was so sad because he would never get Kang Yeon Doo as he liked her too late and he did not want to snatch from his brother, Kim Yeol. However, he still managed to confess his feelings for her. I kind of pity Ha Joon though.
Last but not least, the most important of all, is Kang Yeon Doo and Kim Yeol. They are always falling on each other and quarrelling at first but they start to have feelings for each other as time grows. Such a cute couple!! Kim Yeol, unlike Ha Joon, likes her being into people’s business and standing up for people. His confession is cute. And they are the post-it couple. I feel they are one of the best couples I seen. Kim Yeol even taught her a way to not let the club abolish by putting up posters in the school to show the unfair treatment in schools and tutored her etc. There is too many cheesy scenes of them so please watch for the full idea.

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.
Junior, Yugyeom and Bambam, which was once dream knights, were in a kpop group called Got and were students of the school. In Hyung is a fan of Jr. There was once when JB pushed In Hyung to Jr as he was upset In Hyung do not know who they are and it caused a scene. Many fans started disliking her. In Hyung wanted to join the dance competition as the winner will get to have a performance with Jr but she hurt her leg. The four knights try to teach and dance with her to make her the winner.
Jr realised that JB, Youngjae, Mark and Jackson may be knights and he asked Bambam and Yugyeom to test them, like if they have power or they will disappear in water. One funny part was when Yugyeom tried to get water on Youngjae but ended up spraying water on a lady. Haha.
After Jr knew they were knights, he told them that if In Hyung shred tears of happiness, they will be gone and if they want to live as humans, they had to betray their owner, which they did. However, JB did not want In Hyung to die as he love In Hyung and is willing to sacrifice himself.
Jr was not satisfied with the answer JB gave and tried doing many things like dating In Hyung to make him betray her but to no avail. But through this, In Hyung also knew that she likes JB as she went on a date and missed watching a concert with JB. So JB and In Hyung went on a date and the knights disappeared when she shred tears of happiness. And the ending is after some time or years(can’t remember), JB came back to find In Hyung.

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.
