Seven First Kiss(2017)

Cast: Choi Ji Woo, Soo Jin, Lee Joon Gi, Park Hae Jin, Ji Chang Wook, EXO Kai, Taecyeon, Lee Jong Suk, Lee Min Ho

Episodes: 8

My review: Honestly, I watched this show because I wanted to know how they end the story. How the guys came here were like magic so I thought that they will actually be gone after that and Soo Jin finds her true love. It is actually quite difficult to choose among them as they all look quite good, so if I were her, I would not choose any but go back to my current state of life. Overall, the show is quite okay and it shows the different types of love that happen in drama.

Korean Drama Review Doctor Stranger DS

Doctor Stranger (2014) 异乡人医生

Genre: Melodrama, Medical, Action, Thriller, Politics

Enjoyment: 9/10  Pace: 8/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

doctor-stranger

starring Lee Jong Suk as Park Hoon – Goo Seung Hyun as Park Hoon (child) and Jin Se Yun as Song Jae Hee / Han Seung Hee. Other casts: Park Hae Jin as Han Jae Joon and Kang So Ra as Oh Soo Hyun.

I feel sad that Hoon’s father has to be sacrificed and his mother became mentally unwell. I think it was bad experience for Hoon when he has to cut up real life people to practise and become an accomplished doctor. The North is involved. I did not like it when the North and Premier Jang keeps interfering and trying to kill or separate the couple. They separated at the start and Jae Hee appeared again after Hoon gets a job as a doctor at Myungwoo University Hospital. Politics is involved as Hoon and Jae Joon compete to operate on the President’s heart.

Although some people are supportive of Soo Hyun and Hoon, I still prefer the couple that starts the story. Anyway, Soo Hyun already has Jae Joon to match with. I like what Hoon said “Doctors should be good at healing people while cops should be good at catching people.” It is difficult to decide if they should save the person that may endanger their lives but doctors should still follow their principle and treat each patient equally.

It was quite funny when Hoon 1st goes to the hospital. There are many lines with different colours on the floor of the hospital and patients are told to follow the lines. Hoon accompanied a patient and her father as a water delivery boy and they went round and round the hospital in search for the room. On a side note, I would not want to be patients of this hospital where patients are used for competitions and are not treated seriously by the hospital director. Haha.

Korean Drama Review You who came from the stars YWCS

Updated on 10/1/19

You who came from the stars (2013-2014) 来自星星的你

Genre: Romance, Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Mystery

Enjoyment: 10/10  Pace: 9/10  No. of times I watched it: 5

you who came from the stars3     

A super big hit and a must-watch! Starring Kim Soo Hyun as Do Min Joon and Jun Ji Hyun as Cheun Song Yi.

The interesting part is Min Joon changes job and registers for his death every 10 years. I wonder why people run away from him or report him to the police when he used his power to save others. It is so cool that he can stop time whenever he wants. He uses it to save Song Yi or show his love when he does not want her to know or to delete a love message he accidentally sent. If it is me, I would rather make friends with magical beings. Perhaps if I really meet one, I will also run away? Haha. Loved the fantasy in this drama a lot! His main magical abilities include stopping time, making things move without touching, teleporting, controlling lights and hearing things far away. If I can choose one, I will prefer teleporting. As my house is a long distance from school, I really want to be able to teleport. It will save time and the energy for walking. I also do not have to squeeze into packed public transports. I will also choose like Min Joon to live a short but meaningful human life than to lead a long but lonely alien life. Liked how the fantasy element fits into the plot well, giving thrill, making scenes more sad, helping the plot develop. Liked the scenes where Min Joon uses his power to make the invincible cold villain scared. “There’s something you dont know, you cant kill me.”

After the end of each episode, there are actually hidden scenes at the so called trailer part which one should not miss to get a better understanding of the drama. Liked how each episode includes a small part of Min Joon’s reflection or thoughts which adds depth to the character. Some of them are funny as whatever he says contradicts with what happened with Song Yi. Some show how humans and the reality are like. Some are heartbreaking, especially his crying scenes and those about him going to leave the earth. Became a fan of Kim Soo Hyun after this drama and he even manages to become top 3 on my favourite Korean actor list for some time.

Liked how Min Joon’s past is nicely added to form the background story of Min Joon. Enjoyed watching Min Joon’s drunkard scenes where he misuses his power instead of keeping them a secret like making many things float in the air or causing blackout of a whole city or teleporting home with someone. Liked how Jun Ji Hyun portrayed the emotional struggle of Song Yi despite how her character is naive and straightforward. She adds a lot of humour to the drama. Liked the scene where Song Yi manages to prevent herself from getting killed by pretending she is on the phone. Enjoyed watching the development of relationship and chemistry between Min Joon and Song Yi.

Liked the many distinct characters in this drama. Liked Hwi Kyung as the second lead. Park Hae Jin manages to make his character likable. Hwi Kyung pursues Song Yi since young and is persistent to marry Song Yi which shows his loyalty. He is willing to sacrifice his life to protect Song Yi. He is from a rich family but uses his power appropriately. He is smart and manages to uncover the secret in his family. Another character that I liked is Yoon Jae. My sister felt that Ahn Jae Hyun is good-looking when she first saw him haha. Liked how he stands up for his celebrity sister when people criticise her. He adds humour to the drama when he interacts with Min Joon as he loves aliens and loves Min Joon’s telescopes. Didnt like how Se Mi is fake in her friendship with Song Yi. But her character is distinct and layered, making it interesting to watch. Liked the scene where Hwi Kyung advices her to take action and phone call her long-term crush and the expressions on their faces when Se Mi calls Hwi Kyung. Shin Sung Rok is good at acting as the villain with his evil smile, unreadable face and him not feeling anything when killing someone. Liked the relationship between Min Joon and lawyer Jang. He is the few who can accept Min Joon as he is, accompanies him, cares for him and helps him settle his affairs. It is funny when lawyer Jang criticises him as a friend haha. It is fun to watch when they have to pretend to be father and son to other people, even though Min Joon is a lot older than lawyer Jang. Song Yi’s manager and stylist are cute characters that worry for Song Yi. Liked how Se Mi’s brother is so persistent to uncover the truth. Song Yi’s friend who owns/works at the comic book cafe is interesting as she finds all opportunities to criticise Song Yi online but helps her when she needs it.

Why you should watch: The plot is fresh with romance+fantasy+historical to present+action elements. Every moment seems perfect and I was “chasing” (watching faster than it can be produced) after each episode one by one. Kim Soo Hyun is quite good at acting sad scenes (in every drama) and Jun Ji Hyun makes scenes funny with her exaggerated acting. Both add icing on the cake, making this drama a success. The fact that Min Joon can get heart attacks (ep9,16,19) when his blood is mixed with human’s despite his magical abilities makes it more interesting.
