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)

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.

heartbeat kdramaSummary: Sun Woo Hyeol is a vampire who wants to become human. In order for that to happen, he has to sleep in a hawthorn coffin for 100 years. However, he is awoken one day earlier by a girl named Joo In Hae who is a descendant of his butler. So now Sun Woo Hyeol is neither a vampire nor a human.

Yoon So Hee as Yoon Hae Sun / Na Hae Won

Likes: This a nice break from all the gumiho kdramas I’ve watched recently. It’s rare to see a vampire drama and with Taecyeon  as the main lead I was all convinced with this one.

Reincarnation theme. It’s been a common theme this year with other popular kdramas like Durian’s Affair and See You in My 19th Life which have similar themes, good storylines, and this interisting switch between the past and the present. Heartbeat also shows the past love and life of our main lead, Sun Woo Hyeol way back in the Joseon era when he was with his beloved, then continued to live in Japanese colonial era waiting for his love to be reincarnated. The emphasis on the past settings gave the show depth and helped create a better, more meaningful character developments.

Taecyeon as Sun Woo Hyeol – he’s the reason I watched the show. Vampires have to be super good-looking and he passed the requirement. His performance in Vincenzo was brilliant but his character was quite dark. I’ve been wanting to see him in a protagonist role and I think our handsome and romantic Sun Woo Hyeol is the answer. He’s definitely one hot vampire!

Won Ji An as Joo In Hae – It took me a while to warm up to her. Was it her acting? Maybe. But eventually, it happened and since then I was always looking forward to the next episode. I still believe though she could have done better, but anyway, the next week point was definitely a plus to her…

That vampire kiss. So yeah, I was skeptical with the leading lady until that jaw-dropping kiss in the air! Of course, I give most credit to Sun Woo Hyeol for being a super cool kisser, but that was the moment when Joo In Hae made a very important connection with him. And yeah, there was definitely chemistry! I don’t know how many times I repeated that beautiful kissing scene, it was awesome and it’s stuck in my head!

Beyond the looks and likeness. I love the emphasis on the person within versus the person who totally looks like the one he previously loved. Our dear vampire, as cool as he already was, followed his heart, even without his heartbeat, to find who he’s real love was. And he did in the end.

The vampire comedic relief. I think it wouldn’t have been this fun without Sun Woo Hyeol’s vampire friends. Kyu Pil and Byung Hee brought a lot of laughters for the show. Loved how these two slept like bats inside the wardrobe 😄. Also love the vampire bromance between these two and Sun Woo Hyeol. Bromance that lasts for hundred years!

That intro music. It’s addictive and what better way to start an episode. I also like the animation, so cute and matching. Check it out.. Heartbeat Opening

Favourite quote. “Time is a relative concept. 100 years could feel like a day while a day could feel like 100 years.”

Ending. Not really so happy how it ended. The last two episodes were a bit draggy only for our main character to actually die! He made a promise though that he’ll be reincarnated and that he’ll be the first one to find her. Hm, I still have to get used to this reincarnation concept. But all in all, not bad so giving it a…

Choi Myoung Gil as Baek Do Yi

Likes: What can I say when my favourite genres are consolidated in one kdrama, finally someone has heard me right. We’ve got a combination of past and present here, highlighting vital scenes in Joseon era when all things begun. Time-travel is one of my favourites too! Fantasy, romance and mystery completed the whole roller-coaster plot which involves two noble ladies who time-traveled to the present and meet their long-gone relatives. Crazy but brilliant idea!

Durian’s Affair. Whatever happens when you watch the show, never forget, it’s all because of Durian’s affair. So it’s about the impossible love of a servant and a noble lady who was given a chance to sleep with one another to give the lady a son that her husband couldn’t possibly give due to declining health. The two involved were kind of thankful for that impossible chance. The servant especially couldn’t believe his luck and he was anytime ready to accept his bitter fate after that. This affair obviously complicates and twists the lives of the reincarnated people involved.

How the story told. I’m impressed with how the story unfolded. It started in the present time presenting this great, wealthy, good-looking family. The family seems very nice. Wealthy but good people. Their lives were suddenly shaken when these two noble ladies from the past appeared, and Du Ri An, the older noble lady knows that the wealthy family members are mostly reincarnation of her loved ones from the past. I liked the going back and forth, past and present unfolding of stories. The slow revelation of things (but not draggy) makes the drama so interesting and exciting.

Very well defined-characters. Everyone has a story, everyone’s character especially the main ones were built-up properly, creating very important roles in the story. Everyone is likeable and relatable because of that. We understand the feelings and the reasons involved because of how defined the characters are. We understand why Du Ri An was scared of the mum but at the same time respectful of her. We understand why she was uneasy with the youngest son but also couldn’t help getting curious about him. We fully understand how she felt when she saw her dead son alive in front of her. How these important characters are connected to one another, is so well-architected in this drama.

Good-looking cast. Everyone was just stunning! The two noble ladies from the past looked great in their Hanboks, primmed and proper, and exhibited classic elegance! The rich family in the present time also exhibited elegance, luxury and never dying beauty!

Park Joo Mi as Du Ri An – her beauty suits her role. Simple, serene and exuded elegance. She really did a great job portraying lady Du Ri An as someone so soft-spoken, respectful, choosy with her words, and so demure when she moved around.

Lee Da Yeon as Kim Seo Jo – I find her sooo pretty! Loved the way she spoke, so soft and shy. The role was a young grieving woman who lost her husband, and she did an amazing job portraying that. The way she would look at her reincarnated husband was so full of love and longing!

Choi Myoung Gil as Baek Do Yi – I loved the role. First you would think of her as someone evil, but she was not. That’s what Du Ri An thought as well. She feared her mother-in-law, but she respected her. In the present life, the Baek Do Yi was still the centre of them all, a beautiful, powerful, and a reasonable lady, who unbelievably got along with all her grown-up sons. Truly remarkable.

Gorgeous wardrobes. I’ve got to give credits to the stylists of the show for coming up with a solid, gorgeous outfits for everyone. My favourite showdown was the first episode at the birthday of Baek Do Yi when everyone was dressed up for the event and all her kids and grandson gathered, looking handsome and rich, including the beautiful daughters-in-law. They were all consistently well-dressed throughout the show. It’s fun to watch.

Of course, the Hanboks worn by our Joseon ladies were also top. It was like a battle between the traditional and the modern. Both were so tastefully worn.

The addictive intro. I never got tired watching the intro everytime I watched an episode. It just sooo good! Loved the music, the timing, and everyone looked great here. Check it out… Durian’s Affair Intro!

Cliffhangers! It would make you binge-watch, well, if you have all the episodes ready. Unfortunately for me, had to wait for the next two episodes every week. But yes, awesome cliffhangers!

Favourite quote. “If there is the sun, there is the moon. If there is the moon, there is the sun. If there is happiness, there is misfortune. If you oovercome the misfortune, there is happiness.”

The ending. The whole story is about reincarnation and karma. In the end, these two women who came from the past, who fell in love and who spent time with the person they loved, but then later in life lost them, kind of got rewarded when they made it to the present and met the love of their lives again. However, it wasn’t as simple with Du Ri An, maybe because of her affair. The father of her son became the son’s uncle and her past husband became the brother of her’s son’s father. Entangled relationships! And in the end, Du Ri An realized that her life in the past was about to repeat itself, and she was unhappy about it. She would rather go back, and be alone than being with someone she doesn’t love. I agree that the ending was too abrupt, but I assume Du Ri An disappeared with Chi Gam, the reincarnation of her one truly love.

Baek Do Yi’s (the mother-in-law) fate was very sad. She lost her favourite son and her husband. Everything was going well with her but then maybe because of what she did in the past, her present took a different turn. I actually really loved her present personality, couldn’t see a fault in her. But I guess karma had spoken and there she had it.

I loved Kim Seo Jo’s ending the most, as she stayed with Deung Myung. She became a famous actress herself and has a son with him.

Overall, it was a great drama. Kept me hooked every week. Loved the setting, great story, well-developed characters and with such brilliant acting.

See You in My 19th Life

see you in my 19th life kdramaSummary: Ban Ji Eum has a special ability to remember her past lives. She has been reincarnated a couple of times for the last 1000 years. On her 18th life, she meets Moon Seo Ha, who becomes special to her until she meets a tragic accident and died. On her 19th life, she desperately wants to reconnect with this person, so she finds a way to meet him.

See You in My 19th Life Trailer

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Supernatural, Boss Romance, Chaebol, Webtoon, Rich Boy Poor Girl
Episodes: 12
Stars: Shin Hye Sun as Ban Ji Eum
Ahn Bo Hyun as Moon Seo Ha
Ha Yoon Kyung as Yoon Cho Won
Ahn Dong Goo as Ha Do Yun

Likes: Totally love the story and how it was told. A combination of several  pasts and a present. The going back and forth in the timeline to give meaning to every life our heroine once had. The pain, struggles, rejection, defeat, heartbreaks, all of it that Ban Ji Eum had to endure in her present, because she simply remembers everything in her past lives. The emotion is so real, that makes this drama very likeable.

The love that transcends two lifetime. It all started when our heroine met an interesting boy in her 18th life. She was simply drawn to the boy. However, her life got cut short by an accident. She died murmuring to the boy, “See you in my 19th life.” As soon as our heroine reached a certain age and started remembering everything in the past, she looked for the boy. Isn’t that the cutest plot?!

See You in my 19th Life. I even love the title, it’s deep. It sounds like see you later, see you tomorrow, see you whenever, but yes in one lifetime. But see you in my next life, our heroine was so determined that her feelings will be the same. Even the episode titles were so meaningful, like episode 4: The Inability to Forget About The One You Long For. Or Episode 8: Casting One’s Fate Unto The Dice.

Love the cast. Simply good actors in this drama starting with…

Shin Hye Sun as Ban Ji Eum – Shin Hye Sun chooses her roles properly and she definitely knows a good script. Ban Ji Eum is an old soul. She knew what she wanted. She was aggressive towards Moon Seo Ha and that made this character pretty interesting.

Ahn Bo Hyun as Moon Seo Ha – Ahn  Bo Hyun is such a versatile actor. He is really into the character. He was so different when I watched him as the annoying rich guy in Itaewon Class. Also he was so into his character in Yumi’s Cells. In this drama, as Moon Seo Ha, aloof and distant but I find him the most handsome and likable.

Ha Yoon Kyung as Yoon Cho Won – Cho Won’s character is just too cute. Can’t be ignored! I loved how she cried like a baby when she was talking to her sister. And her facial expressions whenever she sees he crush, Ha Do Yun.

Ahn Dong Goo as Ha Do Yun – a very quiet character but cares a lot. I understand his hesitation to go for Cho Won. Poor guy, he was bleeding inside. But love when he finally took the courage.

Two love teams. Ban Ji Eum and Moon Seo Ha had a really good chemistry. Their love team would have sufficed to make the drama interesting, but I can’t complain that they added another one. And I love the cute love story of Cho Won and Ha Do Yun as well. That made the whole show much more fun to watch.

The mystery of the first life. Well, this one I didn’t see it coming. I’m still new to the reincarnation thing. So there was a connection already in the first life. Although it wasn’t romantic, but obviously Moon Seo Ha, in his past life had cared for Ban Ji Eum. He wanted to protect her, but couldn’t because she was getting swallowed by her rage. In the end, Moon Seo Ha was the key to end Ban Ji Eum’s curse of remembering her past lives.

First love never dies. That holds true in this drama. Ban Ji Eum’s first love was even from her past life. She desperately searched for him in the next life. And Moon Seo Ha couldn’t also forget his first love, the traces of her, and he was bound to meet her again. And these two souls were just drawn to each other, because of that young love they’ve started.

12 Episodes. I think it was good that way. It would have dragged if they’ve forced it to be 16-episode long.

Sweet ending. I love how Moon Seo Ha took the effort to approach and be near the forgetting Ban Ji Eum. It was the other way around this time. Moon Seo Ha came to her and asked her to date him, like how she did it to her before. So cute!

The Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938

tale of the nine tailed 1938Summary: Lee Yeon has to travel back to the past to retrieve an important item that’s been missing in the future. He travels back to 1938, the Japanese colonization era, and there he meets his past self, Lee Rang, his brother, Ryu Hong Joo, a former guardian spirit of the West and Cheon Moo Young, a former guardian spirit of the East, who harbors ill-feeling against Lee Yeon.

Trailer The Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938

Genre: Fantasy, Supernatural, Deity, Period, Time-Travel
Episodes: 12
Stars: Lee Dong Wook as Lee Yeon
Kim So Yeon as Ryu Hong Joo
Kim Bum as Lee Rang
Ryoo Kyung Soo as Cheon Mu Young

Likes: It’s sooo good to see once again our beloved Gumiho brothers. Since Lee Rang died in the first drama, one way to have him back is to go back in time. Brilliant! Ah, the visuals here is just too good. First, we’ve got our Lee Yeon of course, who doesn’t seem to age at all. Lee Yeon’s younger half-brother Lee Rang, who’s so blooming as he’s in love, Ryu Hong Joo, a former mountain God who has unrequited love with Lee Yeon, and Cheon Mu Yeong, who came back from the dead and has unrequited love with Ryu Hong Joo. The feelings are chaotic but will be sorted out because the bond of siblings and friendship always comes stronger.

The World in 1938. That was Japanese colonization era and Joseon was a prisoner, sort of. For the locals, a time of fear, insecurity, lack of identity and independence. You’ve got Japanese soldiers roaming the streets as if they own it. But hey, don’t despair, our beloved Joseon Gumihos are there to make things right. Cheon Mu Young, who was wearing a mask in the beginning reminds me of that era’s hero, the Bridal Mask (another drama). At the end, he was with Lee Yeon in liberating Joseon from the Japanese. Although, in reality, it was a dark time, I love how glorious the world in 1938 looked in this drama. Romanticizing 1938! Oh well, this is a kdrama afterall. No complains there.

Fashion in 1938. Omo, our boys in suits are so gorgeous! You’ve got to give it to the stylists for coming up with a suitable, dazzling wardrobe for all. The gentlemen looked so handsome and neat. Love Lee Yeon and Lee Rang’s looks! The women are gorgeous as well especially the lady of Myoyeongak, Ryu Hong Joo. Her fashion sense was top in that era. But I also love the mermaid’s innocent and cute looks. Love that bow on her hair, so cute!

The Adventures of 1938. So was the storyline good enough for this drama? I got pretty excited with the idea of time-travel. Lee Yeon traveled back to 1938 to retrieve a stone, met his 1938 version, who was an opium addict, got reunited with his brother Lee Rang and his two best friends Ryu Hong Joo and Cheon Mu Young. What I really like in this drama is the adventures everyone had on that era. Our heroes got confronted with all sorts of baddies including zombies and relentless Japanese monsters who each possessed extraordinary powers. Of course the good side, lead by the Gumihos emerged as winners but the bad side didn’t go down without a big fight. And talking about the fight scenes, they were quite epic especially the last battle between Lee Yeon and the Japanese leader, Ryuhei Kato. So yeah, I therefore conclude, that trip to 1938 was worth it.

The Present Lee Yeon vs Lee Yeon in 1938. Who would you choose? Oh my gosh, I have weakness on Lee Yeon with long hair! So handsome! However, he was still immature (which actually makes him cuter as long as you don’t live with him). But yeah, I find the 1938 Lee Yeon more handsome. The present Lee Yeon on the other hand was mature, knows what he wants, cares about the people around him, and especially sweet to Lee Rang. So yeah, the present one is definitely the marryable Lee Yeon!

Lee Rang and the Mermaid. I love how the writers gave Lee Rang a chance to show his gentle and romantic side. These two characters were just so sweet. They looked great together. I thought, we would miss the romance here, as the Lee Yeon’s love is in the future. Lee Rang’s the answer and I love it!

Gumiho Trivia. “Gumiho always repay kindness and repay their debt.”
“Gumiho only love one woman until they die.”

The OST.  It brings you back to the adventures and the charm of the era. Check it out, The Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 OST.

The Ending. The stone has been resolved. Everyone that we love is alive and went on with with their lives. Lee Yeon’s back in the present, once again pulling off the famous umbrella scene 😊❤️. However there was one thing that didn’t close properly, what happened to that reincarnated God? And there seems to be a Joseon version based on the last teaser? Fingers-crossed 🤞!
