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.

Hot Girl (2016) Chinese Drama

Hot Girl 麻辣变形计 (2016)

Cast: Dilraba Dilmurat as Guan Xiao Di, Ma Ke as Liang Da Wei, Wang Yang as Cui Tian Qi, Liu Chan as Ju Liang, Shao Bing as Xiong Kuo Hai, Eliza as Liu Sha, Ai Xiao Di as Zhang Yan, Lou Jia Yue as Mary, Wang Lu as Qin Sheng

Episodes: 37

My Own Review:

I like how this show has quite a lot of fighting scenes (compared to Sweet Combat). I feel that shows that are related to combat sports should have quite a lot of fighting scenes as this will allow characters in the show to display their amazing skills. I like how Guan Xiao Di is very good at fighting.

It is amazing how she is good at many other things as well (like playing pool).

I like how Xiong Kuo Hai, the boss of the bodyguard company L.H.S.D., treats his employee. Xiong Kuo Hai treats his employees like family. One instance of him treating his employee like family is when he gives Liu Sha and Qin Sheng a mission, which is to take a break and marry each other during their break (if I am not wrong). Xiong Kuo Hai also gives his employees a second chance if his employees decide to turn a new leaf.

Putting this picture of Guan Xiao Di and Liang Da Wei as I like the shirt that they are wearing. The dog that is wearing sunglasses seems to be bodyguards too (just like Guan Xiao Di and Liang Da Wei). Hahaha…

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.

Review:

Hong Shi Ah is a webtoon artist. After writing many webtoons, she came to have lack of inspiration for her drawing and her company is not happy with her work.  While she was chasing a group of students to reprimand them for bumping into her and causing her coffee to spill, she managed to find inspirations for her webtoon. The inspiration for her webtoon is a male archery club. She decided to become their archery club manager so that she can draw them and get ideas for her webtoon. But the archery club does not know her motive for being their archery club manager. Will they find out about her motive and how will they react after knowing it? To find out more on what happened in the drama, watch “Matching! Boys Archery Club”.

My Own Review: Not writing my own review as I feel that this drama has a very normal storyline and there is nothing special for me to say.

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.

Sweet Combat 甜蜜暴击 (2018)

Cast: Lu Han as Ming Tian and Guan Xiaotong as Fang Yu, Ivy Shao as Song Xiao Mi, Li Meng Meng as Chen Ya Nan, Pei Tim as Sun Hao, Zhao Yue as Luo Guan Yan, Ding Cheng Xing as Fang Zhou, Tien Niu as Sun Hao’s mother, Zhao De Yin as Ya Nan’s father, Zhang Shuang Li as Fang Yu’s Grandfather

Episodes: 37

Recommendation: 7/10

My Own Review:

I did not know what to watch and went to Youtube to search for china dramas. I chanced upon this drama and decided to try out the drama. I feel that the plot is quite complete as there are quite a lot of up-and-downs and happenings and stories, which I think is good. However, these happenings in the drama make the plot not as sweet as the title of the drama and it brought me some misery at certain point of time, which is when Ming Tian and Fang Yu realised something which made them broke up. Also, I feel that the plot is considered slow pace for an impatient person like me but I did not know why I managed to finish watching this drama haha.

I like how this drama make me feel that all the character in the drama holds the same importance (no matter they are the lead characters or the supporting characters). It is also the first time I remember all the names of the character in the drama although I am not a name person. This may be because the writer of the drama gave each person quite a lot of screen time or may be because many of them get their other half (even if they may like someone else before that). I do not know the actual reason but when you watch it, you may possibly feel the same way as me.

In this drama, I found two “BEST” people in dramas.

sweet combat fang yu fang zhou

One of the best is the best brother, which is Fang Zhou. Although he is younger than Fang Yu, he seems to be Fang Yu’s older brother and he is a very caring and considerate. This can be seen through many incidents. One incident is when Fang Yu wanted to chase her dreams to be a boxer by going to Zhengze University, he persuaded their grandfather to let Fang Yu go by saying that he will go to the company and help out in exchange for Fang Yu’s dream. Fang Zhou always cares for Fang Yu and supports Fang Yu in her dreams. How I wish I have a brother like that… But I think my older sister is already the best sister so I will not need such a brother. I wonder whether my sister will read this but nevermind. Haha… sometimes I am a bit too shy to say the good things about people so I usually write it hehe.

Another “best” is the best principal. I feel that the principal of Zhengze is the best as he is someone who can bend the rules when he think that it is right to do it. I am not going to give you an example since I feel that I have revealed too much plot in the drama. When you watch the drama, you will know what I mean haha.

Talking about best principal, I suddenly remember the director of the school being such a promise-keeper. That time when Ming Tian was in coma, he prayed for Ming Tian and said that if Ming Tian wakes up, he will go and do volunteer work abroad. He is such a promise keeper and I really admire such a person.

By the way, the drama songs are quite nice so do go and hear them.

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…
