coffe-house

starring Kang Ji Hwan as Lee Jin Soo, Park Si Yeon as Seo Eun Young and Ham Eun Jung as Kang Seung Yeon.

Jin Soo is one of the weirdest characters I have ever seen so far. He sharpens all his pencils by knife until a certain sharpness before he is satisfied. Besides that, he brews coffee like a master. There is a certain time of the year that his ears will become oversensitive and he can hear voices from far away, making it difficult for him to sleep. When he is bored or stressed, he will start playing dominoes. He often escapes from events prepared by Eun Young at the last minute or disappears for a period of time without contact. His character is always contradicting and he is quick to lie. Despite him being a writer, he actually studied in a medical school. The most funny torture given to Seung Yeon to me is Seung Yeon hula-hooping while trying to pick up a phone on the ground/ table.

I was fooled by the name of the drama. I thought that it will be focusing on coffee but it is not really about that. The coffee house is just owned by the publishing company. Haha. I wanted Seung Yeon to end up with Jin Soo as she is more of the one who changes him. Although she thinks things too simply, she can easily cooperate with Jin Soo and change Jin Soo’s mood. The only reason that may make me change my mind is that Eun Young knows more about Jin Soo since she is his long-time friend.

Dream High (2011) 梦想起飞

Genre: Romance, Comedy, High School

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

starring Bae Suzy as Go Hye Mi, Kim Soo Hyun as Song Sam Dong, Taecyeon as Jin Gook / Hyun Shi Hyuk, Ham Eun Jung as Yoon Baek Hee, Jang Woo Young as Jason and IU as Kim Pil Sook.
Plot: Dream High tells the story of six students at Kirin Art High School who work to achieve their dreams of becoming music stars in the Korean music industry. Go Hye Mi is a student who had majored in classical music but has to give up her dream by entering Kirin Art High School to pay off her father’s debt. However, she needs to get two other students to also come to the school in order for her to enroll in the school conditionally. These two students are Song Sam Dong, who lives in the countryside, and Jin Guk, whom she accidentally meets while trying to escape from a loan shark. Yoon Baek Hee, formerly Hyemi’s sidekick, becomes her rival in school because Hye Mi betrays her during an audition to enter the school.

Sam Dong is good at singing but pretends he cannot sing due to his mother. Jin Guk is good at dancing but cannot realise his dreams as his father wants him to go overseas and study. Pil Sook is good at singing but does not have a good appearance. Hye Mi has a wide range of pitch but is too arrogant. As the few of them with weaknesses gather together, will they form a good team? Will they always be looked down by others as if they are rotten apples and never get a chance to shine?

Watched this drama sometime ago. Wanted Hyemi to end up with Jin Guk even though ending up with Sam Dong is not bad (sry for the spoiler). Love the couple Jason and Pil Sook. Despite Pil Sook’s appearance, Jason is always thoughtful towards her. It is interesting that a teacher grade the students’ singing according to how many people in the audience paid attention.

Dreams are important. With dreams, one can achieve more than they can imagine. Everyone has their own talents. One should not look down on others. Even the worst teacher can lead a group of students with weaknesses as long as he has the heart.

Why you should watch: A high school drama that consists of Bae Suzy, Kim Soo Hyun, Jang Woo Young, Taecyeon, Ham Eun Jung and IU! It is interesting and content-rich as they try to prove their talents.
