Korean Drama Review Blood

Blood (2015) 血

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Medical, Action, Vampire

Enjoyment: 8/10 (due to the ending)  Pace: 9/10  No. of times I watched it: 1


starring Ahn Jae Hyun as Park Ji Sang, Baek Seung Hwan as Ji Sang (young), Koo Hye Sun as Yoo Ri Ta, Ji Jin Hee as Lee Jae Wook, Jung Hae in as as Joo Hyun Woo and Son Soo Hyun as Min Ga Yun.


This drama makes it such that vampires are just infected people. Liked the drama at the start when he tries to hide his identity of being a vampire while working at the hospital. He seems like a person without feelings when showing his cold-hearted side. He bluntly tells the patient how long they can live and treats them with scientific reasoning without any care. While humans want to live forever by becoming vampires, Ji Sang on the other hand actually wants to become human.

It is fun to watch when Ri Ta gets closer and closer to finding out about him. Ri Ta even misunderstands him as having some psychological illness like panic attack when he drops the scalpel during surgery as his medicine was exchanged for a fake one. Besides that, she is worried for Ji Sang whom she thinks has a deadly illness when all his measurements such a blood pressure are abnormal. In addition, she thinks that she is crazy after seeing Ji Sang’s wound healing by itself. The scene filled with flowers where Ri Ta tries to make Ji Sang sweet-talk is extremely funny. Ji Sang’s bed really looks like a coffin. Haha. It was sweet when Ri Ta wears winter clothes in order to be with Ji Sang in that cold coffin-like bed.

Liked Hyun Woo a lot in this drama. He is Ji Sang’s friend, partner and caretaker. He is a brilliant researcher and discovers that there are indeed vampires in the world (which no one believes). Because of that, Ji Sang depends on him to find a cure for him to become human. He has a very cheerful personality and cares a lot for Ji Sang. Enjoyed how his robot Luuvy adds humour to the drama, especially when communicating with Hyun Woo. The robot even saves Hyun Woo’s life once.

There is a twist which shocked me and perhaps kept me going in this drama. Really surprised by how Ga Yun is actually a vampire helping the vampire chief. Son Soo Hyun acted very well as  the innocent-looking trainee and changed completely when it is known that she has an evil side when following orders and dealing with Ji Sang behind his back. Glad to see that the vampires also have feelings. Towards the end, they start to feel that what their leader is doing is wrong and oppose him. Disliked the ending a lot, especially when Hyun Woo is killed. It would have been better if Ji Sang’s team is able to find a cure to treat those people under the vampire chief’s research and if there is more conflict about Ji Sang being human or not+ Ri Ta’s possibility of getting the heredity deadly illness.

Angel Eyes quotes (Korean Drama)

Like when the siren rings and my body runs out after it, when I think of him, it’s like that – my heart automatically beats for him.

~Yoon Soo Wan


Whether I believe or not, it is not important to me anymore.

No matter how painful it get, let’s never be apart, let’s never separate again.

~Park Dong Joo


To me, Soo Wan is not just a girl. She was like a compass for my life. She’s the one that taught me what kind of doctor I should be.

~Kang Ji Woon

Angel Eyes (2014) 天使之眼

Genre: Melodrama, Romance, Family, Medical

Enjoyment: 8/10  Pace: 6/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

angel eyes   angel eyes2

starring Lee Sang Yoon as as Park Dong Joo, Kang Ha Neul as Park Dong Joo (young) and Koo Hye Sun as Yoon Soo Wan, Nam Ji Hyun as Yoon Soo Wan (young). Other casts: Kim Ji Suk as Kang Ji Woon and Seung Ri as Teddy Seo.

There was a car accident in the tunnel which Soo Wan and her mother are involved. Dong Joo’s father tries to save Soo Wan’s mother but to no avail as the whole tunnel collapses. Both of them die and Soo Wan becomes blind. Feels sad that both have to die, especially Dong Joo’s father who can escape but choose to save Soo Wan’s mother. Such a remarkable firefighter spirit!

Love the development between young lead couple which creates a great impact to the start of the drama. Dong Joo even tests for himself what it is like to be blind when Soo Won was blind. After the couple separated, the interesting thing is both do the job of the other. Soo Wan’s father is a doctor and Dong Joo’s dream is to become a firefighter like his father. They meet as firefighter(Soo Wan) and doctor (Dong Joo). Seung Ri (as a new firefighter working under Soo Wan) adds humour to the heavy plot by using English words and his acting to make scenes funny.

I dislike it when Soo Wan’s father keeps separating the couple. He is just using the excuse that he does not want Soo Wan to know that the reason Soo Wan can see now is because she gets an eye transplant from Dong Joo’s mother who died. He probably is just guilty that he did not want to save Dong Joo’s mother so that Soo Wan can see. He even wants to make Dong Joo his son instead of son-in-law. Happiness can be simple. However, due to the many regrets and wrong decisions people made, happiness seems to be out of reach. At first, I did not like Ji Woon who is Dong Joo’s love rival but feel sorry for him as his mother killed someone for him to cover up his crime (at the same time help Soo Wan see) without him knowing and makes him suffer after he knows about it. Can a mother’s love be harmful to the child?
