Stars: Jung Il Woo as Eun Seon Woo
Kwon Yoo Ri as Don Se Ra
Eum Moon Suk as Yang Jin Mo
Song Sang Eun as Sa Na Hee



Likes: Main reason why I watch this is the leads! Jung Il Woo and Kwon Yoo Ri look extremely good together and their chemistry is undeniably strong. I’m glad they reunited after Bossam. Finally I get to enjoy a kissing scene here, unlike Bossam, which is a period drama, deprived all of us of a kissing scene. So, yeah here we go, more closeness and finally kisses!

Our main leads:

Jung Il Woo as Eun Seon Woo – perfectly good-looking and haughty as usual, loved seeing him here in different detective outfits and of course in CEO suits. He looked really great with Kwon Yoo Ri! They were so comfortable with each other! Jung Il Woo seems to love great entrances. Most of his previous roles have this scene where he can show off himself. It’s becoming like a Jung Il Woo signature already, and I’m loving it!

Kwon Yoo Ri as Don Se Ra – is it me or she’s getting prettier everytime I see her. She was serenely beautiful in Bossam. Here, she was cool and sexy! As I’ve mentioned above, she was comfortable with her leading man making their scenes look very natural.

Action, Detective. It was enjoyable to watch all their detective adventures. The outfits were cool! The secret detective room is a dream for all detective wannabes. It goes on to say, if you’re rich, you can have all the toys you want! What a privilege!



Detective Bromance. I love the bromance between Eun Soon Woo (Jung Il Woo) and Yang Jin Mo (Eum Moon Suk). They were always fun to watch with all their detective adventures!

Extra Love Team. Yang Jin Moo and Sa Na Hee were such fun! Both best friend of the top leads, it’s good to see them as another love team!

Impressive villains. All along I thought it was just Kang Tae Joon (Yoon Sun Woo). Bad guy was written all over his face. He was so good in acting. But who would have thought, our good and quiet secretary Kim to be the ultimate baddie. I’m just impressed with the  villains.

Love the Ending. I love how everything got resolved, and how generous they are with the epilogue. It was great to see the two love teams doing well on their own.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)


Love in Contract

Summary: Choi Sang Eun is a single life helper who has an odd job of being in a marriage contract with men who need help by having a contractual wife. She’s entangled between two clients, Jung Ji Ho, a judge and Kang Hae Jin, a popular actor.

Love in Contract Trailer

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Contract Marriage, Chaebol
Episodes: 16
Stars: Park Min Young as Choi Sang Eun
Go Kyung Pyo as Jung Ji Ho
Kim Jae Young as Kang Hae Jin




Likes: This turned out really good! At first I was so distracted by Kang Min Young’s drastic face transformation. She looked sooo different from her last kdrama, but I’ll elaborate on this on the dislike section. Good thing is, Kang Min Young is a great actress and she chooses her drama well. But then, I got hesitant with Go Kyung Pyo, her leading man. Hm, would this actually work? Surprisingly, it did! I think it was a combination of an unusual plot, surprisingly awesome chemistry, and a brilliant cast!

Unusual Plot. What a weird job Choi Sang Eun has! And how she was groomed to be the heiress of a conglomerate family. Definitely an unusual story. Then here comes one of her pretend husbands, a judge who wasn’t good with people and possessed a mysterious personality. Interestingly, she ended up liking him. I like how the writers gave more weight on personality than possession and title. Choi Sang Eun chose a boring judge over a chaebol / popular actor! That’s definitely something new!

The chemistry. Choi Sang Eun and Jung Ji Ho’s chemistry was slowly built up during those dinner nights they shared at the latter’s place. I absolutely like the awkwardness, it was so realistic! They didn’t talk much but both presence was connecting. I love Jung Ji Ho’s simple gesture to cook, he was so likeable because of that and compensated a lot in his lack of communication skills. It’s really true that you connect with someone through cooking and eating together alone. So yeah, if you don’t know how to talk, at least learn how to cook! The food will do the talking for you 😄.



The love triangle. Choi Sang Eun’s personality was looking for someone beyond money, title and fame. She was very clear from the very beginning that she was into Jung Ji Ho. She didn’t give our poor Kang Hae Jin some false hopes. However, as a good samaritan, she helped Kang Hae Jin resolved his own family issues. But to be fair, Kang Hae Jin, with his visuals and chabeol status, gave Jung Ji Ho a great competition.

Park Min Young as Choi Sang Eun – surprised to see a new face but still the great Park Min Young. The role is multi-talented but felt unloved by the people she expected to love her. How would I describe Choi San Eun, hm broken, but still goes one with one’s life.

Go Kyung Pyo as Jung Ji Ho – somehow he was too tall for the leading lady but you’ll get to like him. Jung Ji Ho was also a difficult personality. To describe him, hm lonely. He was longing for company but it was always a difficult task for him to be with people.



Kim Jae Young as Kang Hae Jin – good-looking guy and as Kang Hae Jin, a sacrificer. He sacrificed a lot for other people; for his first love, for his mum or his family. It was time to that he did something for himself, and that was choosing what he actually liked doing best; acting.

Gwang Nam-ssi. He was Choi Sang Eun’s housemate and ex-husband. I just love the genuine friendship these two were sharing. He was gay and desperately needed a wife to show to his family, so he got into a marriage contract with Choi Sang Eun, but even after their divorce he stayed to support her emotionally.

Madame Yoo. Jin Kyung is once again impressive! She was such a madame with her expensive outfits. Loved the aattitude!

Favourite Quote. “Most wounded flowers are the most fragrant.”

OST is Love. I just really love the OST. Check out Love Contract OST here.

Beautiful Ending. It was great! No flashy ending, instead heartwarming.

Dislikes: Park Min Young should put a stop to plastic surgery. She’s starting to look like a plastic doll, for real. Her new nose is even not straight, it was so distracting. Of course, the face doesn’t have something to do with her acting, but it’s just strange to see a fast-changing face. For me, her face was perfect in Secretary Kim.

Kopiko ad placement was getting aggressive.

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)


The Law Cafe

the-law-cafe kdramaSummary: Kim Yoo Ri is a lawyer who started a cafe that doesn’t only serve coffee but also gives legal advices. She realizes that her landlord is his long-time friend, Kim Jeong Ho, who used to be a prosecutor. These two like each other but have some reservations to be in a relationship.

The Law Cafe Trailer

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Legal
Episodes: 16
Stars: Lee Seung Ki as Kim Jeong Ho
Lee Se Young as Kim Yoo Ri




Likes: Light-hearted romcom, legal kdrama with two of kdrama world sweethearts, Lee Seung Ki and Lee See Young. I like its casual style of storytelling with occasional commentary.

Legal cases. Like Attorney Woo, we’ve got different cases that our lady lawyer, Kim Yoo Ri, had to deal with. Different stories of people seeking legal advice, that makes the plot more interesting and richer. I particularly liked the case of the bullied kid. The bully was also really good in acting.

Awesome villain. Jo Han Chul portraying the role of CEO Lee Pyun Woong was brilliant! This guy can take any role and he will always do great. As Lee Pyun Woong, he was funny, crazy, attention-seeking, simply messed-up personality who always tried to impress his not-so-easy father.

The Cafe. I like the ambiance of the cafe, the people running it and the people around it. Such a good, happy, little community. We’ve got our lawyer, barista, helper, landlord, two ladies running a small store, a neighboring psychiatrist – it gave an impression of a happy place.



Our top leads…

Lee Seung Ki as Kim Jeong Ho – you need to groom him to look like a prosecutor 😉. Lee Seung Ki never aged. He still looks the same ten years ago. I think the tracksuit looked good on him but he always looked like a totally different person when he’s in a suit.

Lee Se Young as Kim Yoo Ri – this is an interesting role for Lee See Young and again she did well in it. Her outfits were so Kim Yoo Ri’s personality! That leopard print blouse was screaming!

The Conventional Ending. With all the fuss about marriage not justifying lasting happiness, they still went for the conventional ending, and everyone seems happy about it.

Dislikes: The chemistry was poor unfortunately. Lee Seung Ki and Lee Se Young are kdrama sweethearts but that doesn’t obviously guarantee a good chemistry.

The story was a happy one but lots of cringy moments. Some unbearable ones! This was no near to Attorney Woo.

No one has pulled the trigger when Lee Pyun Woong was taking Kim Jeong Ho hostage, WHY? Too much talking on the hostage scene!

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)


Extraordinary Attorney Woo

Extraordinary Attorney Woo kdramaSummary: Attorney Woo graduated with top honors but didn’t get hired right away because of her autism.

Genre: Legal, Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 16
Stars: Park Eun Bin as Woo Young Woo

Ha Yoon Kyung as Choi Su Yeon
Joo Jong Hyuk as Kwon Min Woo



Likes: So many reasons to like this drama! It was highly entertaining with some sense of depth plus, I’ve got to say, artistic presentation. Definitely, one of my favourites this year! So, shall we go through the most important points…

Cute Intro. The intro itself is a treat! I love the scenes, the music, the whale and the editing of that short piece was simply awesome. I normally skip intros if they are not worth the time but this one, I would always watch. It just gave every episode a good and happy start.

Autism World. I know, it doesn’t represent all, but the show gave us an understanding about the word autism and the people affected by it, the autistic and the people around that person. It teaches us to be more emphatic towards them. Attorney Woo was of course exceptionally genius, but she represented hope and acceptance.

Case Stories. I love how well-crafted the stories behind every legal case were. They really made every episode interesting. They were a brilliant addition to the already-captivating romantic story between the leads. If I were to choose, I love the case they took in Jeju. Aside from showcasing the beauty of the island, it became the healing case for everyone, realizing what really matters in life. There was a lot of turning points like for the sick Attorney Jung, who discovered he had stage 3 stomach cancer. Attorney Kwon, the tactician, who had a change of heart. Unfortunately, a break up had happened but overall, it was a good trip and a good case.

The Awesome Cast. Everyone really did a great job!

Park Eun Bin as Woo Young Woo – she was brilliant as Attorney Woo! This lady can take any role and I thought last year’s The King’s Affection was her best, but looking at this drama, I think she topped that performance. She was immersed in this role! The facial expression, mannerism, the walk, the talk were perfectly mastered. Hands down for such a brilliant performance! I would love to see her more in the future!



Kang Tae Oh as Lee Jun Ho – finally, a leading man role for this handsome, charismatic, young man! Watching his past dramas, Kang Tae Oh was always undoubtedly a great actor. Though only taking supporting roles, he would always shine. As Lee Jun Ho, he was so admirable because of his kindness towards Attorney Woo. He would look at her with so much love. Who wouldn’t fall in love with this guy?

Kang Ki Young as Jung Myeong Seok – wow, I think this role will bring Kang Ki Yong to places. He was just awesome as Attorney Jung! I would want him as my mentor too! The passion in working as a lawyer was all written on his face! He looked great in suits too!

Jin Kyung as Tae Su Mi – I’ve got to mention this lady. She was so classy as Tae Su Mi, Attorney Woo’s mum! The way she talked, walked and dressed, just gorgeous! Her entrance to the court made everyone acknowledged her presence, just so much class and power!

Supporting Love Team. The budding romance between Attorney Won and Choi was so cute. These two were fighting like cat and dog from the very start. Slowly, at the end, they were getting closer. I knew it! Jeju island will do that to you, you know? Seen it all in past kdramas!

Attorney Woo’s Amazing Friends. I love how she managed to have great friends! The close friend from high school Dong Geu Ra Mi was a gem! Loud but super funny and he was like a big sister/protector to Attorney Woo. And my gosh, that viral “Woo to the Young to the Woo” replied by “Dong to the Geu to the Ra Mi”, was just amazing!

The other friend is Attorney Choi Su Yeon, from university who was always there for Attorney Woo. For her, Attorney Choi is “Spring Sunshine Su Yeon”! So sweet!



Quotable Quotes. They’re mostly by our dear Attorney Woo…

“If I were a whale, would my mum not have abandoned me?” – after she was talking about mommy whales never abandoning their babies during a hunt (heartbreaking 😢).

“You keep on popping in my head even if you’re not a whale.” – Attorney Woo to Jun Ho during her confession

“What you see isn’t everything. Don’t be blinded by what you can see. Keep in mind the essence of what lies beyond that.” – Abbot of Jeju temple

“I’m like a narwhal in a pod of Belugas. I live in a unfamiliar ocean with unfamiliar belugas. Because everyone’s different from me, it’s not easy to adjust, and there are lots of whales that hate me too. But it’s okay, because this is my life. Though my life is unusual and peculiar, it’s valuable and beautiful.” – Attorney Woo to her mum Tae Su Mi

The Ending. I really love the ending! They could have not done it any better. The last case with Attorney Woo’s half brother involved was the perfect wrapping up to her story. There was definitely reconciliation but never in a cheesy way. It was all well done! Such an awesome ending!

My Rating: 9 stars! (10 as highest)

Shooting Stars Trailer

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 16
Stars: Lee Sung Kyung as Oh Han Byul
Kim Young Dae as Gong Tae Sung
Yoon Jong Hoon as Kang Yoo Sung



Likes: This drama gives us a peek on how these talent agencies work. It’s interesting how they find talents, groom them and handle them. Moreover, how they clean up after these said talents mess up. It’s a million dollar business and there’s a lot of work to be done!

The Actors. They’re the most obvious people in the industry because they’re the one appearing on films, ads and interviews. They’re the stars! They’re beautiful, shining stars, giving the impression that they’re reachable and having a twinkling happy life, but oftentimes they’re not. Gong Tae Sung, our main character’s story in this drama is like that. Such a big star but lonely! Even having a girlfriend was such a challenge.

The Talent Managers. These people are admirable due to the fact that their job is not the easiest, especially when they’re handling a difficult talent. They might work behind the scene but they do work a lot. They have a wide range of job to do, from the discovering of talent, grooming and handling them.  One needs a lot patience and passion to be a manager of a star. In this drama, I love Kang Yu Sung’s dedication and passion for his work. I think he was the “perfect manager” example. He was like a friend, a parent, and a bodyguard to his talents.

The PR Manager and her Team. This team can get really busy depending on how well-behaved the stars are. They’re the ultimate cleaner. They clean up the mess of stars, may it be scandals, rumours, gossips, and even just honest mistakes. Like the talent managers, they work behind the scene but they do a lot. They do a lot for one goal, and that’s to make their stars shine.



The Starforce Office. I like how they made it have that family and team vibe. Real entertainment office might not be as friendly as that but Starforce was all about working together in harmony. Everyone seemed to get along with each other. I love the camaraderie of the show.

Multiple loveteams. Who’s your favourite?

Oh Han Byul and Gong Tae Sung – They look great together but just lacking chemistry, don’t you think? But I just love how that friendship they have since college blossomed into a real relationship. They were always near yet so far. It took it a long time to get there, but they made it in the end.

Kang Yoo Sung and Park Ho Young – Okay, I love these two. I think this team had the best chemistry. They were always so cute together. But best was when Ho Young made that confession. Lol, Yoo Sung’s face was just priceless!

Jo Ki Ppeum and Do Soo Hyuk – The romance was a bit too late but I like their chemistry. Their personalities were just a match,  a bit stiff but both professional in their line of work.

Yuna and Jae Hyun – the cat and mouse but ended up marrying each other. I love their wedding, it was a great end to the show.

Byun Jung Yeol and Hong Bo In – these two were also so cute! Not so much cheesiness but Byun Jung Yeol (Tae Sung’s driver/manager) is just adorable.



Ending. It was a bit cringy with all our love teams being with each other. But it made it a happy and fun ending. I also like the Jeju setting. Glad kdramas are going back to Jeju once again.

Dislikes: Kim Young Dae wasn’t ready as top lead. He was very lacking. His acting wasn’t at par with Lee Sung Kyung. He’s definitely has the looks and maybe in a couple of years, with more workshops, I’ll be ready to watch him again.

Poor story. Nothing much between the main characters that they had to introduce a couple more love teams to keep it interesting. It was such a struggle to finish this drama.

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)

His secretary Lee Shin Ah, who has a grudge on Noh Go Jin for being a mean boss, pretends she is his fiancee thinking he doesn’t remember anything.

Crazy Love Trailer

Episodes: 16
Stars: Kim Jae Wook as Noh Go Jin
Krystal Jung as Lee Shin Ah
Ha Jun as Oh Se Ki
Yoo In Young as Baek Soo Young



Likes: Something that I really miss when this drama ended was its intro music, Ra ta ta ta! Made me always excited when I would start another exciting episode. Actually, let’s check it out again, here it is Crazy Love Intro!

Boss Romance. I just started this list for the love of all kdramas that involve falling in love with, well usually tough, even bully, but of course handsome or pretty bosses. This is just one example and our lead Kim Jae Wook, lived up to our expectations!

Top Leads with awesome visuals.

Kim Jae Wook as Noh Go Jin – oh my gosh the role was so annoying in the beginning. It was so hard to fall for this conceited character. However, as we advanced to later episodes, there was clearly a development to his character, thank  goodness! Kim Jae Wook did great as Noh Go Jin, despite some awkward scenes. He just looked great on all those suits and extra sexy driving his blue Audi R8. I was definitely sold! His chemistry with Krystal was surprisingly amazing! I just love that kiss he gave her when she was on the ladder, looked very genuine!



Krystal Jung as Lee Shin Ah – Krystal is no doubt a great actor. She’s one of those ex idols who can actually really act. Her sister Tiffany, tried the same route, but sorry she wasn’t as good. Krystal as Lee Shin Ah was a natural. She took the role with ease. When it comes to visuals, Kim Jae Wook and her complemented each other so well. As I’ve mentioned above, their chemistry was quite strong. And yeah, she even sung!

Ha Jun as Oh Se Ki – I love this guy. He always spoke so well and was such a good actor. Oh Se Ki and Noh Go Jin’s brotherly bond in the drama was impressive and convincing, so the two of them drifting apart at some point, made me really sad.

Yoo In Young as Baek Soo Young – I haven’t seen her in a while and it was great seeing this amazingly beautiful face again in kdrama world. Her character here didn’t do her villainous acting capability justice. I had seen better but anyway, just glad to see her back.

Impressive office interiors. There was one thing I really noticed in this drama, the impressive offices! First, I love Noh Go Jin’s office… the white board, the books all over the place, it just suited our genius CEO well! Second, Park Yang Tae’s (Ilpum Edu CEO) more traditional, mature but still stylish. I specifically loved his black door, it was very chic! Lasty, Baek Soo Young’s so pretty, feminine and very stylish office. I just loved how the production paid attention to these details.



Impossible Love. At the start, love between our top leads Noh Go Jin and Lee Shin Ah was really nowhere in sight. The bickering between these two looked sooo convincing. As the show progressed, we were seeing possibilities and chemistry. The story also got more interesting, which unsurprisingly made its rating higher.

Impossible Career. I love how it ended with Lee Shin Ah living the impossible dream she had for a long time. She just didn’t give up becoming a teacher and her hard work paid off in the end. What was also impressive is that she chose another institution to work at, and her boyfriend supported her for that, although he knew he would lose such a talent.

Cherry Blossom Ending. It seems to be a trend but I still like it. It was such a beautiful scene and yeah, I love the rings! The couple also had one of the best wedding photos ever!

Dislikes: Desperate to promote that Kahi beauty stick!

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)


A Business Proposal

a busines proposal kdramaSummary: Shin Ha Ri works for a food company as a researcher. One day, her life changes when she tries to go on a blind date instead of her close friend, but the guy she dates happens to be Kang Tae Moo, the CEO of the company where she works for.

A Business Proposal Trailer

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Boss Romance, Office, Rich Boy Poor Girl, Chaebol
Episodes: 12
Stars: Ahn Hyo Seop as Kang Tae Moo
Kim Se Jung as Shin Ha Ri
Kim Min Gyu as Cha Sung Hoon
Sul In Ah as Jin Young Seo




Likes: This is a pretty straightforward good romantic comedy. With 12 episodes only, it was able to capture our hearts with its really good-looking top and supporting leads and their strong chemistry. Lots of cliches but they kind of worked on its favour. It was definitely funny, cringy at times, and such a joy to watch on our seemingly never-ending rainy days.

My Girl Vibe. That whole pretending she was someone else brought back memories of My Girl, one of the old kdramas that I really like. It was predictable, like oh yeah, that’s gonna backfire. I knew what was coming, but I still liked it. This never gets old.

The Loveteams. I was already good with our top leads doing well when it comes to chemistry, then comes the supporting loveteam! What a bonus! I love both pairs. They all looked great with each other. And not to forget the awesome pair in Ha Ri’s team, Mr. Gye and the team lead, Yeo Ui-Joo! They were so funny.



Strong chemistry. Our main pair, Kang Tae Moo and Shin Ha Ri’s chemistry was just top. I just loved how Tae Moo would look at her with so much admiration. Their bed scene caused a stir for showing some skin, but really, I didn’t mind 😉. Our hot CEO had some sexy back to show anyway.

Meanwhile, Cha Sung Hoon and Jin Young Seo weren’t lagging behind. These two’s chemistry was also awesome. Our girl appeared to be more aggressive, but yes she could, she was hot and a chaebol!

The Worry Dolls. I just like those dolls. They do help in reality. My son has a worry whale, and whenever something’s bothering him, he would cuddle his worry whale. It’s just cute, how the dolls came out to have the same purpose 😊.

OST is Love. The songs are quite good. Reminds of old drama OSTs. Check out A Business Proposal OST!



The Beautiful Cast

Ahn Hyo Seop as Kang Tae Moo – love all his drama but I think this is the first time he really established an amazing chemistry with his leading lady. That workaholic handsome boss role suited him so well. And I like it best when his character got cocky, so adorable.

Kim Se Jung as Shin Ha Ri – I didn’t warm up to her in the beginning. I thought first she looked older. But Shin Ha Ri’s personality was just likeable and fun. And yeah, she was a great kisser too!

Kim Min Gyu as Cha Sung Hoon – hot body and looked great in glasses too! Love his bromance with Ahn Hyo Seop!

Sul In Ah as Jin Young Seo – she’s cute and bubbly! Jin Young Seo is the type of character everyone wants to be friends with.

How to be a good boyfriend according to our awesome Kang Tae Moo…

1. Show off wealth.
2. Get clingy.
3. Be loyal like a dog.

The Ending. One year later with a proposal under the lovely cherry blossoms, I would take that anytime!

Dislikes: What’s with the tacky grandpa house? I love Kang Tae Moo’s grandpa, but he would have deserved a much better house. Don’t you think?

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)


Dali and the Cocky Prince

Dali and the Cocky Prince KdramaSummary: By mistake, Jin Moo Hak meets Kim Da Li in the Netherlands and makes a connection with her. He had no idea, she is from a prestigious Korean family. They meet again in Korea, Da Li struggling to save the family’s museum from collapsing. Jin Moo Hak tries his best to be of help to her.

Trailer: Dali and the Cocky Prince

Genre:  Romantic Comedy, Chaebol, Food
Episodes: 16
Stars: Kim Min Jae as Jin Moo Hak
Park Gyu Young as Kim Dal Ri
Kwon Yool as Jang Tae Jin
Yeon Woo as Ahn Chak Hee
Hwang Hee as Joo Won Tak



Likes: I just love the fact that Dali and Moo Hak’s love story revolves around art and art appreciation. I love art and I like going to museums, and I thought of it sometimes as a romantic place. Art museums in kdrama have been a set to famous romantic dramas in the past like Secret Garden, Her Private Life and even the house of the very rich in Mine. Museums command vastness, space, special light and of course contains the curated, precious art. It is such a special place.

Art effects. I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but at the end of every episode the scene becomes a piece of art, like a beautiful oil painting. Such a nice and relevant touch! And for those who are curious which Modigliani’s painting was featured on the first episode, it’s the Jeanne Hébuterne with Hat and Necklace. The famous Dance in the Country by Renoir was also the inspiration of the drama’s official poster. It’s art all over the place!

Opposite attracts. The character of Dali, who grew up loving art and became an expert of it, was the total opposite of Jin Moo Hak, who grew up focused on making money and was uncultured in matters concerning art. Dali always commanded class and poise inspite of the financial challenges she was facing. She was a good person to begin with. Jin Moo Hak , although greedy to earn more money, uncultured, tacky and could be vulgar with his language, was also a genuine person. In the end, he made Dali laugh, feel protected and loved.



The cast. The top three are just artsy as their characters…

Kim Min Jae as Jin Moo Hak – his tacky appearance was one thing but no one can deny he’s got a young and handsome face. I thought Kim Min Jae looks like Yeo Jin Goo but he was nowhere looking like the latter in this drama. I was seeing a lot of Song Joong Ki in him here.

Park Gyu Young as Kim Dal Ri – My gosh, I thought this role was just perfect for her. She perfected the look of a prestigious family’s daughter. Always classy and poised! I also love her beauty, she looked so delicate just like the art pieces.

Kwon Yool as Jang Tae Jin – I always like Kwon Yool. He’s such a brilliant actor. I first noticed him in Whisper and I thought this chaebol badass role suited him so well. I am so glad to see him in this role again! He rocked as Jang Tae Jin! So handsome, so cold, so rich, so powerful, so badass!



Wardrobe design. Yes, it’s commendable! The outfits worn by our Dali and Moo Hak in the Netherlands when they first met were simply gorgeous! Of course I like all the dresses worn by Dali. They were very well-thought of and rightfully fit an heiress. Jin Moo Hak was also looking great in suit but I couldn’t take my eyes off Jang Tae Jin. He just looked so handsome in his outfits!

Playful and happy OST. I miss listening to the songs of the drama. They  always uplifted my mood. Here’s Dali and the Cocky Prince OST!

Ending. I got my 1 year later epilogue so I’m happy 😊.

Dislike: Minor, but I find Kim Min Jae too young-looking for his role.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)


One the Woman

one the woman kdramaSummary: Jo Yeon Joo is a prosecutor who gets into an accident. She wakes up not remembering who she was and is mistaken to be the 2nd daughter-in-law of a rich and powerful family, Kang Mi Na, who just looks like her.

Trailer: One the Woman

Genre:  Romantic Comedy, Chaebol
Episodes: 16
Stars: Lee Ha Nee as Kang Mi Na / Jo Yeon Joo
Lee Sang Yoon as Han Seung Wook
Lee Won Keun as Ahn Yoo Jun
Jin Seo Yeon as Han Seong Hye



Likes: Lee Ha Nee is definitely the wonder woman of the show! She was everything – she was very funny to begin with, I love her acting skills, her facial expressions are impressive, she’s tall and gorgeous and always looked great in her outfits, I even love her voice – from the thug-like to the chaebol-like tone, her long gorgeous hair is something to be envious about both curly and straight, her knowledge in several languages including Thai is impressive. I would say she gave both Kang Mi Na and Jo Yeon Joo’s characters justice. I especially love Jo Yeon Joo, the prosecutor, as she was super cool and was so skilled in fighting.

Funny Jo Yeon Joo Quote. “I want million and billions not in my probiotic but in my cash!” 😄

Favourite Quotes: “Walls turned sideways are bridges.”

“Once we love someone, we don’t get disappointed in them that easily.”

Tall Men. Oh well, since Lee Ha Nee is quite tall, it was just fitting to have her three tall and handsome leading men…

Lee Sang Yoon as Han Seung Wook – he is a model as seen in his well-proportioned built. After VIP, I’m glad he resurrected his good-boy image as the chaebol Seung Wook and love interest of our Jo Yeon Joo. These two really look great together.

Lee Won Keun as Ahn Yoo Jun – so tall and cute! This hoobae wants his prosecutor noona but our first leading man was to quick to get her. Anyway, his loyalty belongs to his noona all the way to the end. Very admirable!

Song Won Suk as Han Sung Woon – the powerless chaebol ex-husband! He might have been lacking but his looks wasn’t lagging behind.



Gorgeous outfits. It involved dressing up the very rich, and I would say the stylist did an awesome job. Loved Kang Mi Na / Jo Yeon Joo’s outfits, especially that floral dress she wore when she kissed Seung Wook. Han Seong Hye too had an impressive wardrobe, not to mention her notably, gorgeous earrings!

Veteran actors. Lots of them here and it made the show more worthwhile to watch as you can never go wrong with Jun Gook Hwan, Na Young Hee, Kim Chang Wan and Ye Soo Jung. Surprised to see the old maid played by Ye Soo Jung wearing tight jeans and high heels, she looked so fashionable!

Jo Yeon Joo as a bully. How do you bully back your senior when he’s mean to you? Call him Ahhh jhwoo shiii! 😄

Most awaited epilogue. After all the drama, my favourite part came… One year later…

Dislikes: The twist with Kang Mi Na changing her face wasn’t really believable especially that she wasn’t able to retain her deep voice.

The ending was giving more importance in living abroad than staying in their beloved Korea. More loyalty to Korea please!

Likes: Oh my gosh, Yumi’s cells are just too cute! And there are so many of them, all  impressively visualized! Although they’re all representations of what was going on Yumi’s head, they were accurate and totally relatable. I just couldn’t stop saying, “That is sooo true!” It’s amazing to see the cells as this tiny people running and doing their respective jobs inside our brain. If a cell is forgotten or not given importance, they die, just like what happened to photo cell or writer cell, but they can also get resurrected. I like how our brain is visualized as a village, with its village folks doing their duties.

Yumi’s Cells. I love all her cells working together but her brain was obviously dominated by love, reason, hunger, emotion and fashion. Her love cell was her number one. Yumi was capable of loving someone and putting that someone on top of her priority list. To watch her and her cell’s journey as she started dating Woong was truly fun. There was these roller coaster of emotion, which was of course well-portrayed by “emotion cell”. The time when her giant “hunger cell” shrunk and lost its appetite. Her “reason cell” panicking what to do when he’s out of reason. Her “fashion cell” making sure she wore the best during her dates. And of course “love cell” coming back to life after years-long of coma.

Woong’s Cells. He’s also got reason, love, but I remember Lustsaurus most, lol! Woong’s village has fewer cells than Yumi, well maybe because he runs on algorithm a lot. King Sullen had a cameo and he was so cute!

The first kiss. How could I forget that when there was some waist-grabbing involved.

The chemistry. Kim Yoo Mi and Go Woong chemistry was awesome. Love how she would stare at him whenever he’s shirtless 😍.

The OST. I just love the song Like a Star! Beautiful song!



Awesome cast. And we’ve got 2 idols as support…

Kim Go Eun as Kim Yoo Mi – Kim Go Eun did it again! I understand why she’s very much liked by a popular writer. Her ability to give her character justice is undeniable. Here as Yu Mi, she was this girl who closed her heart to love for a while but unexpectedly fell in love with someone who was not even her type.

Ahn Bo Hyun as Goo Woong – I never thought of Ahn Bo Hyun in romantic comedy, let alone the leading man. But surprisingly, he did so well and I’m already liking this guy. As Goo Woong, I love his awkwardness and sometime stiffness. He always appeared rough but he was a gentle soul.

Minho of kpop group Shinee and Jin Young of Got7 – it makes me happy to see this two idols! Jin Young specially is totally rocking the kdrama world!

Dislikes: Not sure of the ending. Hoping for a season 2 as it’s obviously to be continued.
