bride of the water god kdramaSummary: Habaek, the water god, leaves the realms of the gods for the human world to look for the divine stones. He then meets So Ah, a psychiatrist who is the descendant of the servants of the gods. While looking for the stones and staying at her place, the 2 fall in love with each other.

Genre: Fantasy, Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 16
Stars: Nam Joo Hyuk as Ha Baek
Shin Se Kyung as So Ah
Im Ju Hwan as Hoo Ye
Krystal Jung as Moo Ra
Gong Myung as Bi Ryum

Likes: It was exciting to have yet another fantasy drama this year. I love the setting and the characters. The 2 worlds looked great! It started with showing some details of the realm of the gods with Habaek himself in his godly appearance. It was followed by the introduction to the human world and what could be prettier than a cherry blossom naturally-decorated Seoul :).

After some impressive intro to both world, we got a taste of Habaek’s on and off power in the human world. I thought that rescue scene: Habaek rescuing So Ah from a fall, looked awesome. I got very excited and waited for more scenes like that.

I love Habaek! I think the character was very charming. He might have lost his power but he kept his charm. His looks was charming so as the way he spoke. I loved it when he talked seriously but always came out funny like when he said, “A guy can’t love without a car” or “Candies shouldn’t be eaten at once”. And how can I forget his description of the mug he gave to his girl, “This is me (referring to the guy on the mug) and this is you (pointing to the dog on the mug which represents So Ah). And of course (even if he overdid it a bit), I love all his shirtless scenes :).

Best actor in this drama was Im Ju Hwan, hands down! He upstaged everyone! And all I thought, the director was simply bad making most actors here looked quite sloppy. But hey how come there was one who really stood out! Im Ju Hwan did really great. In the end, he was the only I was looking forward to watch. This guy deserves a leading role next time!

Shin Se Kyung was also great. Her acting put Nam Joo Hyuk in a bad light. She all had the emotions going but always unreciprocated.

Forget the acting although she wasn’t that bad but  Krystal Jung probably had the best part for trying out all those gorgeous outfits! Well, she gave them all justice as she has the body for them. The entire drama was like a runway for her.

OST is love! Bride of the Water God OST.

The sunset and bride scenes at the end were both lovely. Habaek and So Ah looked really good together!

Dislikes: The storyline was a mess. A lot of informations were lacking and/or unsupported. I have the impression that some were left for the audience to figure out or the writers simply expected us to read the manhwa.

Bad acting everywhere. Aside from the 2 excellent actors in this drama I mentioned above, the rest were so-so. But will have to concentrate on Nam Joo Hyuk (sorry fans), he was very lacking. There was no facial expression! It’s awkward to watch that while Shin Se Kyung was giving it her all, everytime the camera shifted to Nam Joo Hyuk, nothing as in nothing. It hurt to watch. There’s still a room for improvement, no rush for top lead roles if you’re not yet ready. Nam Joo Hyuk, you were very promising in Moon Lovers – Scarlet Heart: Ryeo.

The ending, wahhh! So poor. No one bothers to improve anything. It was like… Ok folks, not doing well in the ratings, let’s just get it over and done with. I thought it would compete with Goblin but nahhh!

But because of Im Ju Hwan’s performance, I’m still giving it a…

My Rating: 7 stars! (10 as highest)

Summary: Soo Jin, a receptionist at Lotte Department Store gets rewarded by a fairy/goddess for returning the latter’s lost item. Soo Jin’s birthday wish is to kiss someone but she doesn’t only get the chance to kiss one but seven very popular faces!

Genre: Web Drama
Episodes: 8
Stars: Lee Cho Hee as Min Soo Jin
Choi Ji Woo as Goddess
Lee Joon Ki as Church oppa
Park Hae Jin as Romantic Boss
Ji Chang Wook as Sexy secret agent
Kai as Charming Student
Taecyeon as Sweet rich guy
Lee Jong Suk as Famous Actor
Lee Min Ho as Free Spirit Traveler

Likes: It’s the shortest drama I have ever watched but the most popular-actor-packed one. It’s like a sweet treat during the holidays!

Let’s talk about the gorgeous oppas in this drama… starting with…

Lee Joon Ki – As usual in his best element… charismatic with a gorgeous face! He took the role of an IT millionaire who knew our girl Soo Jin when they were still young. Flaws, hm, IT millionaires don’t normally look as gorgeous like him and especially don’t pose in magazines like a pro model :).

Park Hae Jin – Very handsome, calm and he’s got the snob looks. He was Soo Jin’s workplace manager which is more realistic than the other roles. Of all of the oppas, he actually had the best chemistry with our girl. The almost-kissing scene was the least awkward of them all!

Ji Chang Wook – Always full of action and thrill, that’s our Chang Wook oppa. As a sexy, handsome and wounded agent, he rekindled romance with Soo Jin who was a former agent herself.

Kai – young, fresh and playful, Kai took the role of Soo Jin’s former language student. I love their chemistry! A real kiss would have been perfect when they were dancing.

Taecyeon – gorgeous, handsome face with a buffed physique! He took the role of a chaebol willing to give up everything for Soo Jin. I thought it was sweet! Taecyeon’s episode was the funniest with the future mother-in-law opposing the love between the 2!

Lee Jong Suk – ah this guy is just sexy! I think he was the most kissable of them all! Love his outfit and his charisma! Our Soo Jin, would have been suffering from weak knees near this guy. His role was a popular actor which made him more intimidating.

Lee Min Ho – last, most-awaited and a possible first kiss for our Soo Jin. He took the role of a travel book author who happened to drop by the store. But really, what happened to the first kiss?! Hm, the weakest of them all.

Lee Cho Hee as Min Soo Jin – finally our girl, Soo Jin! I like the fact that they have someone who’s not super pretty for the role. She was pretty enough, good comedienne and deserving at least one kiss from one of our gorgeous oppas (which never happened). She had the best chemistry with Park Hae Jin! Would watch a drama with the 2 of them in it.

Dislikes: I can’t dislike it for being short since it’s a webdrama and it’s supposed to be that way but I dislike it for being a heavy advertisement of Lotte Department Store.

My Rating: 7 stars! (10 as highest)

The Time We Were Not In Love kdramaSummary: Oh Ha Na and Choi Won have been good friends and neighbours for 17 years. They’ve been through thick and thin and both  had been in love with someone else and ended up brokenhearted. With the comeback of Oh Ha Na’s ex-boyfriend, Choi Won’s chance to express his real feelings to his bestfriend has gotten slim.

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 16
Stars: Ha Ji Won as Oh Ha Na
Lee Jin Wook as Choi Won
Yoon Kyun Sang as Cha Seo Hoo
Choo Soo Hyun as Lee So Eun

Likes: Lead stars are my favorites! Always a fan of Ha Ji Won since Secret Garden. And Choi Won, I just couldn’t get enough of him from the Three Musketeers! They’re a very promising pair and their chemistry didn’t disappoint at all. This is specially proven at the 15th episodes.

I like the way the story was told. Lots of flashbacks from where the leads were still in highschool. It brings back some of my personal memories (not exactly though). I bet there are some of you who could relate as well :).

Our tall and handsome Yoon Kyun Sang as Cha Seo Hoo is a tough competition. He could have run easily with our girl!

For the working ladies, Oh Ha Na’s daily office outfits are something to consider. They seem to have put a lot of effort dressing her up (always looking great from head to toe). Definitely “dressing for success”.

The older loveteam (between the older pianist and Choi Won’s cousin) is a great icebreaker. These 2 were somehow cute together despite the ages. And having to end up with a baby together makes me like these lovebirds more!

I like the games of words… 1 + won, my one (Won), one (Ha Na) to one and I’m Lonely (which was supposed to be Rooney). Just cute!

To compensate for all the heartbreaks and the times the 2 leads didn’t spend with each other, I’m glad they pulled off a full episode of happy ending. The wedding and the baby news might be a big cliche but it just had to end like.

Dislikes: Though I like the actors, I didn’t really warm up to the characters. Oh Ha Na’s character just didn’t fit Ha Ji Won. Too girly, submissive and at times irritating. Where did my tough girl go? Choi Won’s character was also too pitiful! It was hard to see him got rejected by his girl, even got abandoned by his mum. Poor Choi Won! Wanted to adopt him at that instance!

Lee Jin Wook is too thin! He looks thinner than Ha Ji Won!

I understand it’s sponsored by Tandy (shoes) but they could have been subtle with the promotion. The show is obviously a big shoe promotion. Showing the workplace, the shops and Oh Ha Na (Ha Ji Won) wearing their shoes. It was too “in your face”!

At times, it just really gets boring.

orange marmalade kdramaSummary: A pretty young vampire, Ma Ri wanted to experience life with humans so she attended highschool where a smart and talented student Jung Jae Min also attends. They got along quickly for they’re both fond of music but Jae Min changed as soon as he learned that Ma Ri is a vampire.

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, School, Teens
Episodes: 12
Stars: Yeo Jin Goo as Jung Jae Min
Seol Hyun as Baek Ma Ri
Lee Jong Hyun as Han Shi Hoo
Gil Eun Hye as Jo Ah Ra

Likes: Concise and direct to the point! I’m glad they didn’t drag the story to fit more than 12 episodes. It was good that way.

Cute! Teenage vampire in love with teenage human and they made music and everyone seemed to be happy about it ;).

I’m liking the title “Orange Marmalade”.  It’s as sweet as the story.

But my favorite part is the Sageuk part though it’s hard for the 2 leads to end up together in that era. The vampiric atmosphere just suits well during those times. The storyline was also richer as if they put a lot of effort on it. So even if it just lasted for 5 episodes, it was those 5 episodes that matter most.

I like the songs the band was playing. They’re all very catchy.

Yeo Jin Goo has grown into a good-looking young man. He did great portraying the smart, talented and sometimes snubbish Jung Jae Min.

Seol Hyun is a sweet surprise. She hit the mark portraying the shy, innocent, isolated young vampire Ma Ri. Definitely a surprise from an idol.

Lee Jong Hyun has improved a lot. He had more facial expressions. Happy to see that very handsome face.

Learned a new term “vamming out”, vampire coming out!

I like the ending though it looked very much a cliche ;).

Dislikes: 1 episode per week! It’s hard to remember what had happened in the previous episode.

In comparison to the sageuk part, the present (school setting) was very lacking.

marriage without dating kdramaSummary: Ki Tae, a successful beauty surgeon was pressured to get himself a wife otherwise his mum would sell off his beloved flat where he currently lives as a bachelor. He was tempted to ask Jang Mi, who just got dumped by her ex-boyfriend, to pretend to be his girlfriend. In order to test the sincerity of their relationship, Ki Tae’s mum ask the 2 to get married.

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Family
Episodes: 16
Stars: Yun Woo Jin as Gong Ki Tae
Han Groo as Joo Jang Mi
Jung Jin Woon as Han Yeo Reum
Han Sun Hwa as Kang Se Ah
Huh Jung Min as Lee Hoon Dong
Yoon So Hee as Nam Hyun Hee

Likes: A fun, light-hearted drama. It was good to watch it with a heavy drama on the side.

Ki Tae and Jang Mi’s characters together is hard for me to imagine in reality but it’s good to see it at least happening on screen.

Kim Hae Sook did it again by acting as a potential evil mother-in-law turned nice. She’s always great!

2AM in the house in the person of Jung Jin Woon! Still some work on the acting but what a prety face!

It ended happily. Specially, happy for Ki Tae’s mother to finally dump that ass of a father.

Dislikes: Yun Woo Jin as lead is still weak. He got upstaged by Jung Jin Woon (by looks).

Joo Jang Mi character was a bit annoying.

The story though fun was very common.

hotel king kdramaSummary: Cha Jae Wan, the manager of Hotel Ciel had a dark past. He grew up being manipulated by a powerful man and only believing that his tragic beginning was caused by the owner of the hotel and that he has to avenge himself. After getting to know the heiress of the hotel, things started to change and painful truths slowly unfolded.

Genre: Melodrama, Romance
Episodes: 32
Stars: Lee Dong Wook as Cha Jae Wan
Lee Da Hae as Ah Mo Ne
Im Seul Ong as Sun Woo Hyun
Wang Ji Hye as Song Chae Kyung
Lee Duk Hwa as Lee Joong Goo
Kim Hae Sook as Baek Mi Nyeo
Jin Tae Hyun as Roman Lee

Likes: Highly anticipated reunion of my favorite My Girl leads. It’s been a while and these two didn’t age a bit.

The characters and their dirty secrets. I love the way they all got revealed in the end. It was a surprise for Cha Jae
Wan’s real father to know that he was actually the father. It was terrible for Jae Wan’s mother to know that he was actually his mother. And it was just tragic for the poor boy, Jae Wan to know who his both parents are. Terrible truth!

The setting. It has a very European feel and hotel looks very grand. Did some bits of research, it’s the Intercontinental Alpensia Resort.

Best actress award goes to Baek Mi Nyeo for giving justice to her challenging character. She always does so always
watch out for her.

So many pretty faces but Wang Ji Hye is a new found for me.

Have to give credit to the stylist. Everyone looked great but my favorite is the very classy style of Chae Kyung played by Wang Ji Hye.

Dislikes: I just didn’t feel the old chemistry between the leads. Was that because they both looked like frozen dolls?
Lee Dong Wook was too thin and Lee Da Hae looked so operated to me.

The atmosphere was dull. The hotel always looked empty. They could have added some more extras to have that realistic atmosphere of a popular and well-sought hotel.

Some annoying sidekicks. Shouldn’t have focused too much on them.

The ending was okay.

marry him if you dare kdramaSummary: Na Mi Rae travelled from the future to when she was just about to meet her husband so she could stop it from happening and was hoping that would change her life when she travels back.

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Time-travel
Episodes: 16
Stars: Yoon Eun Hye as Na Mi Rae
Choi Myung Gil as old Na Mi Rae
Lee Dong Gun as Kim Shin
Jung Yong Hwa as Park Se Joo
Han Chae Ah as Seo Yoo Kyung

Likes: Attractive cast! I was looking forward to another YEH and been waiting for Lee Dong Gun to come out. Yong Hwa, I will always love to see his face. Han Chae Ah, I was curious if she was just a pretty face in Bridal Mask but no she can really act.

Different genre. I’m always curious about time-travel.

Favorite characters… Seo Yoo Kyung, she was pretty, funny, bubbly and actually smart! Miranda, I love her, she’s definitely the grandma of a handsome Chaebol!

Dislikes: I think Lee Dong Gun’s comeback took so long. I wasn’t just warming up to him, plus having Yong Hwa as his competitor just killed him.

Na Mi Rae, the character was just annoying. Don’t understand why these 2 guys were fighting over her.

The ending!!! Was it Kim Shin or Se Joo??? So annoying. I’d like to think it’s See Joo but they could have been clearer about this (for a goodnight sleep’s sake)!

yourebeautifulSummary:  A convent girl dragged into lying in order to save her identical twin brother who couldn’t make it in time to join a popular boy group. She had to dress up and act like her brother and live with the other band members in the same house.

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Teens
Episodes: 16
Stars: Jang Geun Suk as Hwang Tae Kyung
Park Shin Hye as Go Mi Nam and Go Mi Nyu
Lee Hong Ki as Kang On Yu / Jeremy
Jung Yong Hwa as Kang Shin Woo
UEE as Yoo He Yi

Likes: I’m into idols at the moment. I think it’s the kpop thing that made me watch this finally! Oh yeah CNBlue!

I love Jang Geun Suk! He can act, he can sing and he really looks good from all angles! Though his one eye is smaller than the other, he still looks good!

Actually the 3 guys all look damn good!

Park Shin Hye is cute but the girl to watch is UEE! She was annoyingly great!

Dislikes:  The chemistry between 2 leads was just poor. I love Park Shin Hye but JGS has to be paired with someone else. Sorry no spark at all.

I was never convinced with the kissing scenes. Plus what kind of kisses were those. They were not moving at all!!!

I dislike Park Shin Hye’s role. Too clumsy! Reminds me of Jandi. I always wonder if cold guys really like this kind of girls. I guess not.

Sorry Jung Yong Hwa but no facial expression at all. Hard to be next to JGS. Watching Heartstrings at the moment, I want to see him improved! Even just a bit.

Presence of annoying characters like Manager Ma and Go Mi Nam’s aunt.

Summary: A story of a young love i miss you kdramathat blossomed between 2 teenagers who got separated by ugly circumstances. After 14 years, they meet again and while mysteries of the past are being solved, people around them are getting involved and hurt.

Genre: Romance, Melodrama
Episodes: 21
Stars: Yoon Eun Hye as Lee Su Yeon
Kim So Hyun as young Lee Su Yeon
Park Yoochun as Han Jung Woo
Yeo Jin Goo as young Han Jung Woo
Yoo Seung Ho as Kang Hyung Joon
Ahn Do Gyu as young Kang Hyung Joon

Likes: 3 of my favorites korean actors are here: YEH, Yoochun, Yoo Seung Ho!

I love the beginning… the introduction of the characters, the details and the superb acting of the child actors! It was very sincere. I could fell the sadness and the pain.

That kissing scene on the road! It was just beautiful! It wasn’t relevant though. I don’t know why they were in the middle of the road. Anyway, it was beautiful!

The wedding scene! It was a bit cheesy but well I’m a sucker for wedding scenes!

The ending! Somehow I expected this scene to happen. We go back to the time when they were young and Han Jung Woo returned the yellow umbrella and yes his young uncle was with him, even introduced him to Su Yeon. If everything went like that in the past, there wouldn’t have been suffering and pain, everyone would have been happy. But well, we won’t have this drama either :).

Dislikes: It was just bad story telling. I was so bored because there was barely nothing I don’t know. Please reveal the secrets like bombs!

Why’s everyone could just enter that huge house of Harry Borrison. The giant gate and the secret room just made no sense.

Yoochun oppa, the character Crazy Rabbit is not just for you! Please say no next time.

Talking of Crazy Rabbit character, why was it not introduced properly like you know show how great he is in solving cases and catching criminals. Just a short scene with actions and everything so we, the viewers have better understanding why other characters talk highly of Crazy Rabbit. What I remember when Crazy Rabbit appeared for the first time, he was drunk and singing out of tune in a karaoke bar! Total Fail.

Keeping the character of Kang Hyung Joon’s mom almost to the end without an effect to the story was just a waste. I expected she would still be relevant. Also the character of Kim Eun Jo, the daughter of Detective Kim who died earlier in the story, I thought there was still something from her character since I saw her as one of the leading actors as shown in the promotional photos.

And yeah, Han Tae Jun, father of Han Jung Woo, supposed to be the root of all evil here, what was that stupid move in the end, kidnapping Su Yeon that just got you imprisoned. Ah frustrating. And not to forget, the actor playing Han Tae Jun was just lacking some acting skills, sorry. Not scary and villain enough.

Likes: Song Joong Ki! I wanted to see another drama from him after watching Sunkyunkwan Scandal.
Good actors! First time to see Moon Chae Won, I love her!
I love the intro! SJK in black holding that watch plus a catchy background music!
Hands down to the stylist of this drama. Love the outfits specially Park Si Yeon’s!
The ending though lacking is not that bad!

Dislikes: Song Joong Ki’s character is not for him. Too melancholic for that beautiful face.
Song Joong Ki’s too young-looking for Moon Chae Won. Though I love both actors, the chemistry wasn’t just there, sorry.
They could have done better with the script. Too black and white! Hero’s too nice that he’s stupid and villain, too evil that she’s the smartest.
Heavily advertised Samsung Galaxy Note, lol!
