good doctor kdramaSummary: Park Si On who has autism made it as practice surgeon in one of the best hospital in Korea. He had 6 months to prove he’s capable of being a good doctor.

Genre: Medical, Romance, Melodrama, Family
Episodes: 20
Stars: Joo Won as Park Shi On
Moon Chae Won as Cha Yoon Seo
Joo Sang Wook as Kim Do Han
Kim Min Seo as Yoo Chae Kyung




Likes: It’s a new genre for me in kdrama world but since I used to watch Grey’s Anatomy before so I kind of expected similar dramatic and thrilling stories every episode. Yes I was right and these ones were also packed with great stories!

Very well chosen cast! Everyone was natural in their acting!
-Joo Won has improved a lot since Bridal Mask. Excellent portraying of an autistic character!
-Moon Chae Won is a natural. The strong, brilliant Cha Yoon Seo  fits her well!
-Joo Sang Wook is sooo handsome! And his character makes him more handsome!!!
-Kim Min Seo is always consistent with her roles. Her character as Chae Kyung has great chemistry with Kim Do Han.

I like how the main characters developed slowly throughout the drama. Park Si On’s character development was remarkable. I also like the Chief of Pediatric who in the beginning was irritating but he turned out being likeable in the end.

My favorite patients were the puppy girl and In Hye. These 2 girls were great in acting and I love their stories and the ending.

Love couples in the hospital! I love the head and chubby nurse, they were funny – a comical relief in a serious hospital drama.

The ending was good and realistic. I love Park Si On’s speech after being accepted in the hospital as a full-pledged doctor with the closing “Thank you for loving me”. So touching!

And the epilogue! It was funny having Park Ki Woong (cameo) there. Oh I’m pretty sure they didn’t make fun of Bridal Mask ;).

Dislikes: Though the drama was packed with good stories, characters and actors, it’s still a melodrama. Lots of crying. I can’t stand watching 2 episodes in a row! Took me almost a month to finish it!

Too much shouting! I’m just wondering if it’s really like that in Korea. Seniors shouting at their juniors even in a hospital environment.

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)

the moon that embraces the sun kdramaSummary: Crown prince Lee Hwon was set to marry someone who he really likes and approved by his father, the King. A few people around him though just didn’t agree to that and tried all their might to get rid of the young crown princess.

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Period
Episodes: 20
Stars: Kim Soo Hyun as Lee Hwon
Han Ga In as Wol and Heo Yeon Woo
Jung Il Woo as Prince Yang Myung
Kim Min Seo as Yoon Bo Kyung




Likes: I love the script – the story and how it was told! Lots of surprises and unexpected moments for me!

I love the director (whoever it is), for making every episode worth watching by capturing every momentum of the story! I bet the scriptwriter of this drama was contented to work with you :).

I love the cast! Oh where do I begin… Well first I thought it was just Jung Il Woo but yeah I forgot his pretty face a lot every time Kim Soo Hyun was there :). Han Ga In is simply a good actress and Kim Min Seo, after seeing her as gisaeng in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, I was wishing I would see her more in the future. Not to forget the young actors, they were all great! I specially love the face of the young Yeon U, sooo pretty!

Great villains! Our main characters are nothing without them.

How other characters (aside from the main) developed and were never forgotten until the end. Everyone had their proper closure, happy or not.

Great chemistry between main leads. Even if they would just do wrist grabbing all the time, that would still make me giddy!

I’m happy for a long epilogue and an ending that brightens up my mood after the sad 2nd to the last episode.

Dislikes: A definite happy ending for our sun and moon but all the dying in the end was making me gloomy. My prince oh my prince, why did you sacrifice yourself! I would say Jung Il Woo stole the ending of the show!

My Rating: 9 stars! (10 as highest)
