Random Long Series Korean Drama Reviews My daughter Geum Sa Wol&Still Loving You

Woah. Finally have a bit of time for blogging…, used much of my free time watching dramas and shows. And I am just procrastinating something now so making use of some procrastinating time to write hahaha.

I was glancing through long series drama My Daughter Geum Sa Wol as my mother was watching it on Channel U. This drama uses architecture as the theme. Typical of long series dramas, there is a hidden daughter and the mother treats her own daughter badly without knowing. And then there is the so-called lead couple that should not get together since the father of the guy ruined the family of the mother of the girl. Sa Wol, Oh Wol and Hye Sung were good friends at the orphanage until Hye Sung becomes blinded by greed and fear.

The more irritating villain that kind of angers me is actually not the evil man that caused lots of deaths but the insecure girl that causes misunderstandings, and tells lies wherever she goes just to get what she wants. If only she could be satisfied with what she has, her misery and others’ misery will be greatly reduced. But then the plot would not have been able to run and many truths may be left undiscovered… She must have had a hard time living in fear of being abandoned or exposed but that is just an excuse for her actions. Felt that Se Hoon is too good for the insecure evil Hye Sung haha. She is too lucky as an evil second lead, considering all the things she receives despite all the bad deeds she does.  (By the way, I didn’t put any pic of her haha)

   
Sa Wol-Chan Bin couple

Liked the characters in the drama such as Sa Wol, Chan Bin, Se Hoon, Oh Wol, Oh Wol’s father, Oh Wol’s children that are portrayed well.


Oh Wol’s father and his son, Se Hoon

I felt tears in my eyes when I was watching Oh Wol’s father shouting her daughter’s name at the site of the collapsed building meant for the orphanage children. As he was poor, he left his daughter at the orphanage and intends to pick her up once he earns enough money to be able to support both his children at the same time. Little does he know that the “good” building he wants her to stay in for 1 day actually collapses before he could fetch her home.


Child-like Oh Wol comforting Sa Wol

I especially liked how Song Ha-yoon expressed Oh Wol, especially when she becomes child-like after an accident indirectly caused by Hye Sung.

I feel sad for Hye Sung’s kind adoptive mother who is being kept in the dark about important things. She does not know that the child her husband so persistently wants to adopt is “his own” child.

I was surprised when I see Yoo Jae Suk In this drama haha…hahaha. Although the revenge plot in this drama is interesting, it isn’t a drama I would want to chase. I think I only watched about 1/2 here and there of the whole drama+last few episodes to save the agony.

I also happen to browse through Still Loving You which is quite cute&sweet haha. Was randomly browsing through YouTube and suddenly pressed into an episode…

    

The starting of the drama is hilarious when Soo Ho first started to learn cooking so that he can work for his rich father’s food company. Love the lead couple and their chemistry! The plot is kind of cliché but I like how the lead couple’s love thrives throughout the drama. They actually married quite early in a long drama and their married life is just too perfect haha. Like how Soo Ho stands up for Eun Soo and trusts her all the time. I was expecting some conflicts but looks like there isn’t much after they got together or is it I was not patient enough to watch till there? After some time, the drama plot becomes quite dull so I didn’t manage to watch the whole thing episode by episode.

Liked how the characters grow and mature, especially the Soo-Hyun-Bitna couple haha.  

Another interesting major conflict in this drama is how Soo Ho’s sister, a doctor, wants to marry a single father who is raising a pair of twins.

That’s all. Time to go back to my dull “long series drama” life…

Exo Next Door(2015)

Cast: Exo and Moon Ga Young

Congratulations to Chanyeol who won the “New Actor” Award.

Recommended Ost: Beautiful by Baekhyun

Exo Next Door is a web drama about exo living next door of an ordinary girl(Moon Ga Young) and her cheeks always grow red when she is embarrassed. She helped to clean up the next door house and saw the exo team, which she was a fan of. When they went into the kitchen when she was inside drinking water, she sprayed water at Chanyeol, which made the exo members shocked. Chanyeol was having a hard time making a song and he went back to find the other music note necklace that his grandfather left before he died. In this web drama, we can see the conflicts between Chanyeol and Moon Ga Young(as Moon Ga Young cleans the exo’s house, Chanyeol keeps hinting to Moon Ga Young that he is Chan, her old friend, D.O. liking Moon Ga Young and Sehun making friends with Moon Ga Young’s brother. There was one episode where Moon Ga Young and Chanyeol gets stuck into a storage room in the house and they spend the night together in the room, During that episode, Chanyeol found out that the music note necklace was with Moon Ga Young. At the last part of the drama, the exos had to leave for an overseas job trip and the exos came back to the house again like what happened the first time they arrived.

Sorry for the missing plots for I had watched it long ago and kind of forgot the scenarios. Thank you.:)

Korean Drama Review HM/IRY

Hi. I am finally back! Hope I did well for my examinations. Will try to maintain 1 post per week for the upcoming weeks haha. Thx for the support! Lucky JM

Hello Monster/ I remember you (2015) 記得你

Genre: Romance, Thriller, Mystery, Psychopath

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

irememberyou

starring Seo In Guk as Lee Hyun, Hong Hyun Taek as Lee Hyun (Child), Jang NaRa as Cha Ji Ahn, Park Ji So as Ji Ahn (child), Lee Chun Hee as Kang Eun Hyuk, Choi Won Young as Lee Joon Ho, Park Bo Geum as Jung Sun Ho, Hong Eun Taek as Sun Ho (child)

 

Felt really sorry for young Hyun who is misunderstood and even called a monster by his father. This would have hurt any child deeply. Although his father is a psychology professor, he is not able to answer his child’s question of why it is wrong to kill another or decipher his child’s intentions which in my opinion makes him a failure as a parent… Was interested in this drama due to the character, Hyun. Hyun is such a good criminal profiler and his exceptional ability to draw dots between different features and events attracts me to watch this drama. The dark starting note of this drama further captivates me to watch the drama as it explores the theme of psychology and psychopaths.

Liked the interaction between the police team which consists of a weak but upright and determined team leader, a member who admires Hyun, a member who detests Hyun, a member who is neutral with a hidden background, Cha Ji Ahn and Hyun. It is fun to watch how the member who hates Hyun, calling him by other names and countering Hyun whenever he gets the chance, slowly starts to like Hyun. Liked how the members depend on Hyun but at the same time do their best in the investigation, especially the team leader who is overshadowed by Hyun. The cases are effectively used to provide insights into Hyun and Ji Ahn’s past and experience.

Enjoyed the chemistry between Hyun and Ji Ahn. Liked how Hyun mischievously disturbs Ji Ahn like telling the taxi driver to slow down and then asking the driver to speed up when she is about to catch up. It is funny how they take turns to seek refuge in each other’s house. Hyun is simply a perfect boyfriend haha. He can cook, does housework chores and cannot stand it when the house is messy. Liked Park Bo Geum’s portrayal of Hyun’s brother (cute! haha). Despite his psychopathic trait, he is like a child who yearns for love, care and understanding from his brother (which his brother is keen to provide). It was touching when Hyun realises his brother is actually the defence lawyer that is involved in his police cases and blames himself for not recognising him earlier. Hyun’s brother’s job suits him well haha since he has to defend people who are murderers. It is a waste that Hyun and his brother cannot have a good ending straight away as his brother is a murderer after all.

Personally, I like the title “Hello Monster” more even though “I remember you” fits the drama well as Hyun remembers Ji Ahn and then his brother. D.O. (Do Kyung-soo) acted quite well, injecting a great impact on the atmosphere of the drama. Did not expect Lee Joon Yeong (older version) to be so close to them haha. Shall not give any spoiler. Despite him killing many, I only dislike him for separating the brothers but feel sorry for him because of his past. He is not able to put his gift and intelligence into good use because of his parents. Environment seems to be able to determine how people with a lack of empathy will turn out to be as it affects their choice in life. Fortunately, Hyun uses his natural gift in the right way.
