Omo, June 2016 has been an exciting time for K-dramas....Thank God! because 2015 was not so great.
So these are the list of Dramas (no order) that i have watched or currently watching...
about a royal gambler but instead was all about Lee In-Jwa and his thousand and one lives. Baek Dae Gil might have all the luck & tricks up his sleeves but one shouldnt teach their Pappa (Lee In-Jwa) how to fish. The entire script was hair-pulling illogical most of the times, and i confessed i fast forwarded a lot. I dont get why Dae Gil character became so lame after the time lapse. If not for the talented secondary actors, i would have probably bashed up my screen more. It could have been stella, had they just instead renamed the drama Lee In Jwa and his 1001 lives and focused on the willy fox. The ending was also frustrating to the core!!!
Beautiful Gong Shim:
It's airing and not too sure of it will end up and the writer at times seem to be running low of caffeine/sleep. What i love of BGS is that it's quirky to the beat and aigoo...Ahn Dan Tae is so hilariously fresh. The birth secret and kidnapping arc at times drag the boat into silt runs but thank god...the pace is picking up and the cute elements are back in force!! Minah as Gong Shim is stiff but manages to pull it off. A little sad that BGS will be ending soon, but then it's Moonlight drawn by clouds (gosh, what a mouthfull) starring Park Bo-gum (Choi Taek!!!, Reply 1988) and Kim Yoo jung (Angry Mom).
The crazy superstition are in full force in this drama. We all should be grateful towards Su-ho for understanding the need for Bo nui to depend on something when everything seems to go wrong and offering an alternative - Himself. Dammit it girl, just take him up on the offer cuz you have thousands in the line behind you (with far lesser denim obsession). Someone once commented in one of the popular recap forum that Ryu Jun Yeol (Jung Hwan Reply 1988) was not the lead-worthy due to his puffy hooded monolids giving off a very malevolent impression. I hope she's cringing in embarrassment as RJY is killing it. Would you just look at his glorious goofy smile? Btw Oppa, you better not let go of this girl too. grr..
This just stared airing last week...so four episode down...while the chemistry between the 2 leads is meh i really dont get the fuss about their relationship. They met when he was her teacher and they kinda had a crush on each other but it never crossed the line. The story continues when they meet up after 13 years, both as Doctors. Frankly i dont see the whats the big deal in their age difference of 6-7 years. Hope this is reasonably well written and acted.
Like Doctors, this too aired last week and the set up is in a hospital with the lead as Neurosurgeon. (what's up with all the love that NS is suddenly getting in k-drama?? guess it's better than the cancer troupe), The difference stops there though, because there is Jang Hyuk in Beautiful Mind. It's my kind of late night drama, slightly dark with a mystery thriller element, dash of medical jargons and cold men on the loose.
Gtg and marathon all the episode.
