where stars land kdramaSummary: Lee Soo Yeon is physically disabled but able to live a normal life with the help of extra-ordinary machines which are attached to his limbs. However, they start malfuntioning when he falls in love with a colleague, Han Yeo Reum. The two are both working in Incheon Airport where a lot of interesting stories are happening.

Trailer: Where Stars Land

Genre: Romance
Episodes: 32 (35 minutes/episode)
Stars: Lee Je Hoon as Lee Soo Yeon
Chae Soo Bin as Han Yeo Reum
Lee Dong Gun as Seo In Woo
Kim Ji Soo as Yang Seo Koon



Likes: I definitely love the main story of Lee Soo Yeon and Han Yeo Reum. How they met the first time, how rough was the beginning when they started working together, how they fell in love, how they struggled with their relationship and how they got through the hard times. The chemistry is top with these two. They suddenly made Incheon Airport a romantic place (just like Namsan Tower).

The top leads are great! Lee Je Hoon is a brilliant actor (not just handsome but he can really act). I love his role here… seemingly awkward to the people around him and also anxious of any commitment but that super strength he got from the machine made him look like Iron Man! He did so well in this role. As for Chae Soo Bin, she’s always the bubbly girl, a very good support to LJH’s role. Best is the chemistry of these two!

Although it’s a clear big ad placement for the Incheon Airport, it’s  nice to see how it functions everyday and to see which team is responsible for which job. The sub-stories might be made-up but it’s like that in real life… every sector and every person has a story to tell.

Every episode has a short side story which is really a good addition to the main one. Each side story normally ends every episode so there’s always a new one to look forward to. They definitely keep you interested.

I love the supporting love story of the security couple. I found these two so cute together! A spin-off perhaps?



Kim Ji Soo still looks great for her age! She has this cute face but her roles are always the serious ones just like this one. She was also the best dressed in this drama, always looking elegant in her office outfits!

Lee Dong Gun still looks handsome! His height is always a plus. It’s good to see him take a good supporting role where he can show off his acting talent rather than force himself in a lead role which is not so challenging.

The ending with epilogue! One year later… I love this kind of ending. Somehow whatever problem existing gets solved after a year or two or even 5.

Dislikes: Did I miss something or what? Did Han Yeo Reum’s dad die? It wasn’t clear for a role which was important for both leads.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)

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)!

My Rating: 7 stars! (10 as highest)
