Long Series Kdrama Review The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop

The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop (2016) 月桂的紳士西裝店

Episodes: 54

starring Lee Dong Gun as Lee Dong Jin, Jo Yoon Hee as Na Yun Shil, Shin Goo as Lee Man Sool, Cha In Pyo as Bae Sam Do, Choi Won Young as Sung Tae Pyung, Hyun Woo as Kang Tae Yang, Oh Hyun Kyung as Lee Dong Sook, Lee Se Young as Min Hyo Won 

Doing this based on memory.

I remember the interaction between Dong Jin and Yun Shil as funny. At the start, Yun Shil mistakes him as someone else which causes misunderstandings. I still remember one time Dong Jin happens to chance upon her at her mother-in-law’s farm and he slips and falls and spoils some fruits. They are quite sweet and awkward later on haha. Yun Shil’s husband or husband-to-be is a gangster that was arrested during the wedding if I am not wrong. Yun Shil’s husband-to-be helped her pay off her debt which is a big sum of money so she is grateful and marries him to repay him. He later threatens to harm them if she gets together with Dong Jin. Dong Jin’s mother is also against them being together since she feels that Dong Jin deserves more and his ex-wife is quite rich. She is also worried for Dong Jin’s safety. I feel that his ex-wife is quite foolish to divorce him because he resigns from the big company haha.

It is funny how the couple who runs the fried chicken business always suspects each other is cheating on him/her. The husband is often looked at for his good looks and muscles which leads to the wife often arguing and fighting with female customers. While it seems like the husband is what most woman wants, he is actually being cheated easily and is in debt for being a guarantor for his friend. They often take turns to suspect each other is going out with someone.

There is also another couple. Dong Sook opens a small comic cafe and is a fan of a once famous singer. At first, the top star looks down on her but ends up liking her later. Although once famous for singing rock, he is now earning a living singing other songs such as slow songs, folk music, and singing in front of shops to attract customers. If I didnt remember wrongly, Dong Sook even sells her cafe to help him produce a new music album but he ends up getting cheated. My mother feels that he should just give up on singing rock and earn money through other means but I dont think so. He can earn money using other means but should not give up on what he wants to do at the same time.

There is another young couple, Tae Yang and Hyo Won. The actor that acts as Tae Yang looks good-looking at first sight but not so after some time haha. Tae Yang is Yun Shil’s good friend. He is poor and likes someone but his love was unrequited and the person doesnt reject him until some time later. Then, he meets Hyo Won who is bubbly and cheerful and likes him first. If I didnt remember wrongly, she buys him meals just to stare at him haha. They are quite cute together. It is funny how he promises Hyo Won’s mum that he wont like Hyo Won. It is interesting to watch how Hyo Won’s mum accepts him even though she doesnt want to later on. He somehow meets the needs of Hyo Won’s mum haha. Liked how Tae Yang and Yun Shil support each other emotionally.

Korean Drama Review 9TTT

Nine times time travel (2013) 九回時間旅行

Genre: Time-travel, Romance, Mystery

Enjoyment: 8/10  Pace: 7/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

nine time time travel nine time time travel

starring Lee Jin Wook as Park Sun Woo and Jo Yoon Hee as Joo Min Young, Park Hyung Sik as Park Sun Woo (young)
Plot: Another time-travel drama. Sun Woo is a workaholic who ends up getting a brain tumor. His colleague, Min Young has a crush on him for many years but he did not accept her love until he discovered his illness and decided to live life in a new way. He was also given 9 chances to travel to the past as his brother wanted to change the past and bring happiness to their family again. His mother suffered a blow in the past and had dementia. His brother died trying to find incense sticks that can help the holder travel to the past for 30 minutes. As he travels to the past, he unravels  a mystery related to his family that happened 20 years ago. He even treats his brain tumor in the process and died twice in his time travelling yet managed to survive.

Zoom into characters: Sun Woo is a good worker but poor when it comes to love. He ignores and rejects Min Young who repeatedly confessed to him. He finally changed his mind after he was diagnosed with deadly illness. Min Young is a bright and cheerful girl who does not give up on Sun Woo. As Sun Woo continues to change the past, he realises more things and learns to treasure Min Young.

He even made his lover into his niece after one of the time-travels. Happiness can be simple yet difficult to get at times. The definition of happiness can change as time goes. As long as we have what we treasure, happiness can be felt. To me, time-travelling may make one realise things they did not know. At the same time, most things cannot be changed and things are always back to square one. One should not always stay in the past. The past cannot be changed. One should live the present well and plan for the future instead. Liked the portrayal of young Sun Woo and his best friend, the doctor to be/doctor.
