moving kdramaSummary: Three students who attend the same high school have extra-ordinary abilities. Kim Bong Seok has the ability to fly.

Likes: This wasn’t on my watch list until I saw a trailer and it had Han Hyo Joo and Jo In Sung in it. How did I even miss that? Glad I started watching, and yes I couldn’t stop anymore after a couple episodes. It was just so good! And that was even before the love story of Lee Mi Hyun and Kim Doo Sik.

Power Couple. Since I’m already talking about it, let’s just finish it up! There are several back stories in this drama, and they are the stories of the parents who possess superpowers. A lot them made it to the government’s secret agency as black agents. Lee Mi Hyun, a lady agent whose all four senses are magnified, meets elite black agent Kim Doo Sik, who has the ability to fly. I love the chemistry between these two. I love how an elite black agent became all giddy with the lady he liked. These power couple gave birth to a baby, who possessed both parents’ abilities. Of course, this black agent couple was portrayed by Han Hyo Joo and Jo In Sung. It was such a treat!

Their son, Kim Bong Seok, looked very ordinary but inherited his parents’ superpowers. He keeped it as a secret until he met a girl at school who also possess a superpower, and that’s the ability to not feel pain and to heal quickly. Her name is  Jang Hui So. Now, this girl is actually the daughter of another agent, who was close friends with Kim Bong Seok’s parents.

The Hulk. The story of the hulk is quite sad. Before Jang Ju Won became an agent, he was just a thug, considered as monster by many because of his ability to cut himself open without getting hurt. He met the love of his life, who was normal, and they gave birth to a baby girl, Jang Hui So. His wife died in an accident, and he couldn’t do anything about it, but raised their daughter alone and tried to be normal.

Protecting the Kids. These parents who have superpowers just wanted to live normal and in peace. They all went incognito to protect their kids. However, when their kids suddenly were in danger, they all came out to protect them. I love how Lee Mi Hyun went all out to protect Kim Bong Seok, Jang Ju Won to protect Jang Hui So and Lee Jae Man to protect Lee Gang Hoon. The scene was just too cool! They might be superheroes, but they’re also parents, and children, always do come first.

The bad men who were not that bad. I like how the characters of the North Korean agents were justified. Like the South Korean black agents, they just also wanted to live normally. However, in order to survive, they had to kill, to hunt and destroy. They had to follow orders, whether these orders make sense or not. It’s just pretty sad just how they were exploited for their power. In the end, the men on top, didn’t even care about them

The teacher. I love the character. Although his job was to find new talents, he eventually developed empathy. He started becoming like a true teacher, who would teach the kids and also become someone who the kids can rely on, just like their own parent.

Cliffhangers. I won’t be surprised if you’ll end up binge-watching this drama. The cliffhangers are sooo good, it’s always tempting to take a peek on the next episode.

Ending. I just love how it ended. I love the power couple reunion and the story for the young superheroes was kind of left open. Maybe the romance between our cute Bong Seok and pretty Hui So will continue, who knows!

My Rating: 9 stars! (10 as highest)

A Time Called You

A Time Called You kdramaSummary: Han Jun Hee still grieves the death of her boyfriend who died a year ago. One day, she receives a cassette recorder from a mysterious sender, which allows her to time travel back to 1998. There she meets Nam Si Hyeon who resembles her dead boyfriend.

Genre: Fantasy Romance, Time-travel, Mystery, Melodrama
Episodes: 12
Stars: Ahn Hyo Seop as Koo Yeon Jun / Nam Si Hyeon
Jeon Yeo Bin as Han Jun Hee / Kwon Min Ju
Kang Hoon as Jung In Gyu

Likes: Such a good combination of melodrama and time-travel. I love time-travel, but oftentimes endings of this genre don’t always have that good closure. Not this one though. I know it feels very melodramatic in the beginning, but somehow in a good way. Keep watching until the end, and everything will make sense.

Beautiful love story. He fell in love with someone who traveled from the future and lived in a borrowed body. This is someone who fell in love with her personality. Well, that is something unusual. It goes beyond appearance and beyond time. I love the fact the he drew her in the past with her bubbly personality in mind. She might have been living in someone else’s body, but he was thinking of her as a different person already back then.

Overlapping timeline. Keep a good eye on the years. It can be confusing, but in the end it all makes sense. I just love how intricate the timeline was. The going back and forth time in an attempt to find a solution to the root problem. It was just fascinating!

The mysterious cassette recorder.  I like the way they time-travel here. It’s through music and without surprise I get to like that song already. The cassette tape was a present from the shy Kwon Min Ju that made Nam Si Hyeon travel to the future and meet Han Ju Hee. Han Ju Hee got hold of the recorder with the tape in it and travelled to the past and in the end saved Kwon Min Ju. Yes, so it all went back to Kwon Min Ju.

The love triangle in the past. This is the hardest when a girl likes a guy who doesn’t like her back however his bestfriend likes her, but the girl is not interested in the bestfriend. Lots of unrequitted love here, but the friendship is strong though, so let’s stick to it.

We all want our own In Gyu. In reality, we would love to have someone who would sacrifice for us, who would be there for us always, who would accept us for being who we are, who would love us no matter what. In Gyu, the bestfriend, was such a likable character and I think Kang Hoon, kudos to him, really did him justice here

Brilliant top leads.

Ahn Hyo Seop as Koo Yeon Jun / Nam Si Hyeon – He was such a natural as the young Nam Si Hyeon. The older one got really gloomy understandably from all the sad pasts. As Koo Yeon Jun, he was somewhere in the middle, calm and loving. Overall, Ahn Hyo Seop did such a great job with his roles.

Jeon Yeo Bin as Han Jun Hee / Kwon Min Ju – She did amazing! She was able to show a big difference between the two characters. You couldn’t even tell it’s the same person. She got really into a big drama as Kwon Min Ju, lot’s of tears there, such a moving scene.

Favourite Quotes. “I have to die to fall in love again.”

“Whenever your heart calls for me, I will go to you.

Awesome cameo. Such a surprise to see Ro Woon  (I’m watching his drama, Destined with You) as the love interest of the real Koo Yeon Jun, just before Nam Si Hyeon took over his body. When the two held hands, I was like, Oh my gosh 😲!

The Ending. As mentioned above, I love how it ended., how they closed that crazy time-travel cycle. And of course I love it that there was even an epilogue at the very end, and our two main characters meet again anew, unkowing of their past but the connection was still evident 😊❤️.

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)

Genre: Fantasy Romance, Legal, Period, Romantic Comedy, Rich Boy Poor Girl

Ha Joon as Kwon Jae Gyeong
Yura as Yoon Na Yeon

Likes: I love the See You in my 19th Life kind of vibe in this drama. The tragedy in the past lives, the reincarnation, the curse, but in a lighter, funnier way. The details of the past in balance with the present are very well represented. As the story progressed, it was getting clearer and clearer where our two characters came from and why they were naturally drawn towards each other.

Strong Chemistry. Ro Woon’s chemistry with Jo Bo Ah was undeniably strong. They looked great together. And Jo Bo Ah’s chemistry with the second lead, Kwon Jae Gyeong was also top. This of course made it hard to choose.

Love history. The forbidden love of the past that turned into a disaster was strong reason why Lee Hong Jo and Jang Shin Yu were naturally drawn to each other in the present. Really glad about the detailed back story, flashback Joseon time, when the characters originally met and fell in love. Beautiful love story but tragic! A good reason though to continue in the future. So although, the characters in the present were not quite the match, it was easier to understand why the two were drawn to each other.

Favourite Spell. Of all the spells, which one was your favourite? Mine, right now will have to be the spell for clear skin! To end my misery on pimple breakouts! That would have come super handy.

Good-looking top leads.  Makes it more interesting to watch.

Jo Bo Ah as Lee Hong Jo – she’s super cute. Love her round puppy eyes. However, sometimes she talks like a child.

Ro Woon as Jang Shin Yu – this is the first drama where I really like Ro Woon. Jang Shin Yu’s characters suits him so well. Arrogant but in a funny way.

Ha Joon as Kwon Jae Gyeong – I love this guy. So relaxed in acting. There is confidence in the way he talks which makes him looks attractive.

Supporting Love Team. The team leaders’ office romance added more fun to the story. Love that it ended with a wedding scene too.

Great OST. I truly enjoyed the OST of this drama, especially the tracks for the period scenes. Check it out Destined With You OST.

Happy Ending. I can’t say no to it. The curse has been lifted. No one is dying anymore. Our favourite people ended up together. Someone is enjoying the effect of the clear skin spell. What else can we ask for?

Dislikes: At some point towards the end, it got boring and draggy that it was getting harder to finish watching it.

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)
