KDRAMA LIST; PART THREE

Sunday, July 09, 2017

This has basically become a segment on it's own (I don't even know what to call it), which I didn't know I would keep doing, but what did I expect when I love my KDrama's so much! Go ahead, and see if you find something interesting <3 Clearly this post was meant to be up ages ago, but there were other posts which were more important to post, so instead of changing some of the comments from The K2 section, I've left them as it was, and just posted with another section called 'Update'.



Heirs

The world at your feet and the weight of the world on your shoulders. Children of the super-elite class bear the burden of success as they are being groomed as heirs to their family business empires despite only being in high school. Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) is the heir to the Empire Group, a family conglomerate business. 

But he lives under the constant shadow of his older half-brother, Kim Won (Choi Jin Hyuk), who is already an accomplished young executive in the family business. Despite being betrothed to the wealthy and haughty Rachel Ryu (Kim Ji Won), a hotel heiress, Tan falls in love with Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye), the daughter of his family’s housekeeper. Eun Sang and her best friend, Yoon Chan Young (Kang Min Hyuk), the son of Empire Group’s secretary, did not grow up like their families’ employer did, but they get embroiled in their lives nonetheless. Eun Sang gets caught in a love triangle with Tan and Choi Young Do (Kim Woo Bin), the condescending heir to a luxury resort conglomerate while Chan Young falls in love with Tan’s ex-girlfriend, Lee Bo Na (Krystal Jung), the socialite daughter of a major entertainment executive. Can a romance survive between the haves and the have-nots? 

Comments

Ever since I started to watch KDramas, Heirs was one of the most talked drama, and there was either positive or negative thought towards it. Honestly, I don't know why people hated the show or had things negative to say. Of course, there are points in the drama that makes you frustrated, but I loved the drama! It was so good to watch Park Shin Hye in a role like this because she was amazing. The chemistry between Kim Won and Eun Sang was damn great. Not just that but seeing the development of each character and couples was really interesting because of the twists and turns that occur in their life. 

One thing about Woo Bin is that he's not been able to get the girl he wants, and when he did (in Uncontrollably Fond), he died. Like, come on! Someone give him the girl he wants in whichever drama he plays in soon. Other than the relationships, I enjoyed how this drama revolved around status. It showed clearly how someone with not much status managed to sort her life out by herself along with her deaf mother. How even if someone is loaded with money, isn't always happy with their life, because persona they put upfront isn't how they actually feel deep inside. Some high school dramas are way too cliche, and I can't stand that. But this drama was definitely enjoyable.



Cinderella and Four Knights

Kang Hyun-Min (Ahn Jae Hyun) is a playboy plutocrat who does whatever he wants while Kang Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) is soft hearted but lonely and wild-child rebel who rises in status to a member of the royal family in the Sky House. 

The third cousin, Kang Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin), is a top singer-songwriter who is gentle and kind to Ha Won. And finally, Lee Yoon Sung (Choi Min) is Chairman's secretary and their bodyguard. How will it be for a young girl to end up living in a mansion with four handsome men?

Damn! This year has been filled with so many amazing dramas, and Cinderella and Four Knights is one of them. I so enjoyed watching this show, a number of times it made me laugh and smile was uncountable, like literally, Park So Dam is so adorable! I got to say short hair suits her so much. What I love about this drama is the issues are handled smoothly, so it doesn't drag so long, but neither do they get it over with quickly, it just makes sense how the storyline goes on. The drama is light and not filled with so many dramas which I love because I can peacefully watch the love blossom between a couple, or see friendships grow, yet have those tests and mini struggles which the characters have to overcome.

Although I got to say, why are the oldies the villains in Korean dramas? Like do they not have anything to do besides ruin other people's lives. Every time they put an obstacle in someone's life and makes it hard for them to do things. Just please don't! The OST of CandFK is freaking amazing, oh my gosh I have 3 favourite ones from their and it's so addictive <3 



City Hunter

Decades ago, an elite team of South Korean security officers carried out a covert mission in North Korea to kill the top officials responsible for an attack on the South Korean president. But when the successful team returned to the submarine to take them back to South Korea, a sniper shot all the officers to eliminate all traces of the mission from the outside world. Officer Park Moo Yul (Park Shin Yen) sacrificed his own life to save his best friend, Lee Jin Pyo (Kim Sang Joong), who is the only survivor of the mission known as “Clean Sweep.” 

To fulfill a promise to his best friend, Jin Pyo kidnaps Moo Yul’s son, Lee Yoon Sung (Lee Min Ho), and raises him in a remote area of Thailand to become an elite combat soldier while patiently plotting to seek revenge on the “Council of Five” Korean government officials who planned operation Clean Sweep. After earning a PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States, the highly trained Yoon Sung returns to South Korea to work at the Blue House’s National Communication Network Team and carry out Jin Pyo’s plan for revenge under the codename “City Hunter.” 


Yoon Sung is aided in his quest by Bae Man Duk (Kim Sang Ho), a gambler he saved from thugs in Thailand, and by Kim Na Na (Park Min Young), a Blue House bodyguard who finds out his real identity and falls in love with him. Meanwhile, Prosecutor Kim Young Joo (Lee Joon Hyuk), a son of one of the Council of Five, tries to root out corruption in the government while also trying to track and learn the real identity of the City Hunter. Can Yoon Sung succeed or will his heart get in the way of his ability to follow through with his mission?

Whilst watching Healer, in the comment section City Hunter was mentioned a lot because Park Min-young played the female lead role in that drama. This drama contains way loads of action scenes. It revolves around the concept of revenge, and it sure did a great job at the various ways of revenge a person can get against the other. Either you go full on or do it subtlely in the right way, and that was one of the main conflicts in the drama. 
There were some cliche moments like breaking up for the sake of keeping one another safe, but honestly, as the viewer, we know which options the best, but clearly the characters do the opposite. Not just that but the way the drama ended was crazy! It hit me with so many emotions because it's quite unexpected how it ended but I won't spoil it for those who haven't watched the drama. But it totally is worth watching!




Orange Marmalade

Although humans and vampires signed a peace treaty 200 years ago, there is still much misunderstanding and animosity between the two groups of citizens in modern society. Out of fear of discrimination, Baek Ma Ri (Kim Seol Hyun) has been forced to move around a lot and hide her true identity as a vampire.

Although she just wants to settle down in a new city and lead a quiet life, her desire to live anonymously is foiled when she catches the attention of Jung Jae Min (Yeo Jin Goo), the most popular boy at her new high school. And when Ma Ri accidentally bites Jae Min’s neck, both their lives will never be the same again…

Comments

A fantasy related KDrama isn't a genre I've watched anything from. It's always been all about romance. But I read quite a few great comments about this drama, and I really wanted to know how the whole fantasy part would be portrayed in a Korean drama. I love supernatural things like Vampires, Werewolves, Witches etc, so when I read the synopsis about this drama I was definitely intrigued.

If you are a die-hard romantic person then you will fall in love with this drama, yet be annoyed at some points within the drama because of how there is a problem for that one couple. One thing I was not aware of this drama is how there was the historical aspect to it too. I don't watch historical Korean drama's, in fact, it's an area that I avoid because I feel like I would be so bored of it. But in this drama, I did watch it, because the curiosity to find out what happens to Ma Ri and Jae Min was so strong. Overall this drama was great, I so loved the development of the relationship between Jae Min and Ma Ri. 



High School Love On

Can a real guardian angel survive the perils of teen angst and living life as a high school student? Lee Seul Bi (Kim Sae Ron) is an angel who accidentally becomes human after she saves Shin Woo Hyun (Nam Woohyun) from a premature death. Despite his cold demeanour, Woo Hyun is popular in school because of his good looks and singing ability. 

When his best friend, Hwang Sung Yeol (Lee Sungyeol), finds out a secret that ties them together and also develops feelings for Seul Bi, who is posing as a fellow student at their school, the best friends turn into rivals. Can Seul Bi survive first love and other the perils of life as a teenager and find a way to return to her life as an angel?

Comments

I would so watch this drama again! It's one of those special drama's that I have placed as one of the best Korean dramas. This was such a beautiful and outstanding drama on real love <3 Forget the fact that Seul Bi is an angel, and that, of course, a love between an angel and human won't take place in the real life. But the portrayal of true and real love is shown so well, that it can touch someone's heart deeply. It was so damn good too watch like really it was <3 

There are about 3 love triangles within this drama, which will frustrate you and make you annoyed because you want the main couple together, but as much as it made me angry, I felt like having those extra "third wheelers" portrayed the depth of love the couple shared. Gosh, it's so lovable. This drama leaves you with so many questions one episode after another, and I love that because I want to be able to watch a drama that makes so just click on the next episode link even if it's 2 o'clock in the morning. I need to feel like it's worth it. And this drama definitely was! <3



The K2

This drama is about a patriotic bodyguard who was abandoned by his country and colleagues, a hidden daughter of leading Presidential candidate who regards love as a tool for revenge, and the First Lady contender who hides her ambition and charisma behind a kind and friendly personality. Kim Je Ha (Ji Chang Wook) is former soldier for hire. He is also called K2. He is hired as a bodyguard by Choi Yoo Jin (Song Yoon Ah). Choi Yoo Jin is the wife of a presidential hopeful and the daughter from a chaebol family. Meanwhile, Go Anna (Im Yoon Ah) is the secret daughter of the presidential hopeful. She is also a recluse.

The K2 is an ongoing drama, that just started a week ago. But it is so worth putting it in this post, because of how obsessed I am with this drama! I have been waiting for this drama for over a month, and after watching the first 2 episodes. The wait was worth it. I watched the behind the scenes, as well as interviews connected to this drama, and I love knowing more about it. Anyone who is familiar with Ji Chang Wook knows his action skills are on point, so when you do watch this drama, you see an outstanding acting when it comes to his action parts. Not just that but YoonA is one damn great actress, I have not watched anything related to her, nor do I listen to Girl's Generation, but I read a few comments on how her acting has developed. I don't know whether it is true but when you see her acting within the first 2 episodes, you will be amazed. I have so much expectation from this drama, and I know they will be met because the cast is damn good! Not only that, but the plot is so good that I want to see how it progresses on, in the upcoming episodes <3

Update: The K2 is over. Like whyyyyyyy?! I loved this show so much! Heavily filled with action, revenge, and love. I deeply followed this show every week, and when it did come to an end, it felt like something beautiful ended. I don't want to ruin it for you guys by spoiling it, but honestly, give this show a go. Some people I know either didn't understand much, or gave up halfway. But really this drama was amazing. It is definitely got a place in my top kdrama list <3
