3 Days ~ REVIEW

3 DaysThe Micky (Park Yu Chun) fan girl is let loose once again!

And the man is back! It is hard to believe that his last Drama was 보고싶다 back in 2012. But this time he is not a cop, but bodyguard to the president of South Korea.

I saw the trailer this when I think I was watching 별에서 온 그대. It had Yu Chun in it and I was curious as to what kind of character he would play this time.

His character this time gets some cool fight scene’s this time where he gets to show his flexibility as a dancer into some very nice choreographed fight scene’s.

I do wonder if its Yu Chun’s personal preferences, or WHY THE HELL DOES HE WEAR TURTLE NECKS IN HIS DRAMA’S?????????????????????????????????????????????????????? This question has baffled me for such a long time. No offence, Yu Chun, but please stop! They really don’t suit you. You are sexy in a suit, a lot cut t-shirt, and even a cardigan. But Turtle necks do nothing for you!! It just makes your head look small.

And why must he cry in all his drama’s?? I’ve yet to see a Yu Chun drama where doesn’t cry. I want to see him play a strong character who protects and doesn’t have an emotional break down because something bad happened to someone he knows.

It was a very interesting drama about a guy who is trying to find the reason behind his father’s sudden death and it relating to a confidential document that he had with him at the time. It has a few confusing scene’s where I wondered if they were really important or not. But it was interesting to watch. I wish there was more chemistry development between to the two lead characters, but this wasn’t a romance drama, so it suited the genre really well.

It is worth the watch if you like the detective kind of drama’s where there isn’t a strong presence of romance blooming over a few episodes. It really looks about one’s struggles to have to deal with personal emotions and their very important job where there could be huge consequences if something goes wrong.

But please watch and then write a comment below and tell me what you thought.

마녀의 연애 ~ REVIEW

Witch's RomanceDefinitely the best drama of 2014! I really wanted to marathon it, but I did well with my will power and watched it while it was still airing so only watching two episodes a week.

This drama was hilarious and romantic. I know that a prince is never going to sweep me off my feet like Dong Ha,  but at least I can dream.

It was great to see a young male lead playing a role where isn’t really forcing himself on the female. Instead, it was more of the supportive, caring and sexy side. With the added humour moments with his best friend acting like children, but it totally suited their characters.

This drama also interested me because of the age gap.  With the female being 14 years older than the male. But he is still totally legal and I wouldn’t push him away. I was a little sad when the fortune teller got dropped somewhere in the middle. She was an interesting character and I wondered where she would appear next. Only to never come T__T

This really is a romantic comedy that kept me entertained and I will definitely watch it again. Its a great recommendation for someone who has been working for a while and not gone looking for love only to find them selves falling for someone again after so long.

Its definitely worth the watch!!!  Also, please listen to the OST, 박서준/ Park Seo Jun has a great track which is used for some of the endings of the episodes. He has a great voice, so watch out for him!

매리는 외박중 ~ REVIEW

Marry Me MaryThis is definitely one of those drama’s that most people have actually watched. But I didn’t really have any interest in it until now.

It is definitely one of those drama’s that you hope doesn’t get too cliché and it could well possibly go down that road. At first, most of the characters annoyed me. Mae Ri had this annoying side where she just didn’t let anything go. It was really stalker-ish at the start.

At first, it took me a while to get into it. I didn’t really marathon this drama, because it wasn’t really striking my attention. It was refreshing to see a drama where the main couple were loyal to each other and stayed together even after many misunderstandings. Usually after one misunderstanding, the couple have this over dramatic split and one of them tries to win the other back. But not in Marry Me Mary! It really does make Jang Geun Seok’s character seem like a guy with unshakable feelings. Standing by Mae Ri and always believes what she says. If ever a guy really existed, he would be too pure and a little crazy… surely?!?!

It really is a good drama to watch. It did have some funny moments between the two main male characters, which lifted the mood in places. But I am still unsure if I could really recommend this drama to watch. It didn’t really appeal to me. It was only the rock music part that caught my attention really.  The supporting characters are a little over baring and I wanted to slap Director Bang to make sure she didn’t even appear in any scene’s.

If you are a true Korean Drama fan, then please watch it if you haven’t. Or if you have, please tell me what you thought of it!!

옥탑방 왕세자 ~ Review

Rooftop Prince옥탑방 왕세자 or Rooftop Prince

Again, sorry for the late review of this drama T_T

I watched this drama after I watched “Missing You” because I wanted to see how good Micky would be in another drama.

This really didn’t disappoint my expectations. After the loss of princess, Crown Prince Lee Gak and his three comrades try to find the culprits. Instead,  find themselves in the future with no where to go and no idea of what is going on. By chance, they meet Park Ha and end up having to stay at her apartment.

This is a really nice drama, which some epic comedy moments. Song Man Bo is my favouite comrade, who really does pull of a beautiful women very well but then looks super hot in a suit. But the three comrades really do make the perfect comedy trio who are very supportive and loyal of their Prince.

This can be cliché at times and Lee Gak tries his best to show he likes Park Ha in his on way. Although, he can be really clumsy and make a lot of mistakes, I think that is the characters charm. No one is perfect, not even a Crown Prince. If only I could find my Prince……

The romance between Lee Gak and Park Ha is developed really nicely and makes you really hope they get to be together. Of course, helped with the amazing supporting cast that makes it a must see drama.

보고싶다 ~ Review

Missing You보고싶다 or Missing You

I really should first apologise for writing this review so late! I actually finished watching this drama in August 2013, but I didn’t realise that I never wrote a review. Sorry!

This drama really did make me like Micky more as an actor. And he didn’t take of his shirt to interest me! I really love watching Yun Eun Hye since I saw her movie “Little Black Dress”. She definitely is definitely a good actress. I did marathon this drama because it was so moving and I really hated the young guy who wanted the girl all to his self and is a total selfish bastard. But  that’s just my opinion.

I loved how this drama didn’t so focus on the female. Instead, it showed how Han Jeong Woo was in constant search for her and never once believed she was dead. I really loved this view rather than it always being about a girl being in love. It had Micky showing different emotion’s and I loved his acting. He adorable smile won me over.

The only down side, is I really hated Gang Hyeong Jun. He was this obsessed character, who used money to keep people close to him. He was a spoilt child who I just totally detested by. But the sweet romance between Lee Su Yeon and Jeong Woo was romantic, even with Jeong Woo as the focus of trying to win her again and show that he has always had her in his heart. Which girl wouldn’t love that?!?!

If you are fed up with the cliché drama’s, then please give this one a try. It really was a good watch!

미남이 시네요 ~ Review

You're Beautiful
미남이 시네요 or You’re Beautiful Review.

I have finally gotten round to seeing this drama. I put it on my list after watching the Japanese version “美男ですね”. Its taken me three years to get around to watching it, I am so bad (>.<)

I was actually looking forward to watching this because it has two of my favourite male singers in the cast. With Jeong Yong Hwa (C.N.Blue) who was in Heart Strings with Park Sin Hye who is also in this drama. Then there is Lee Hong Gi (F.T.Island), this is the first time I’ve seen him act but he is so adorable as Jeremy.

I really loved this drama. Although, I was a little disappointed that the two main actor’s couldn’t really play instruments like Yong Hwa and Hong Gi. But I guess that can’t be helped. But the cast went well together and I was really cheering for Soo Woo most of the time. He really did care for Mi Nam. But I guess he couldn’t get close after Tae Kyeong got close to her and showed her a different side that no one else saw.

If you have seen 美男ですね and haven’t seen the original version, then you really need to. The Japanese drama just isn’t the same and I really do prefer the Korean drama for sure. The characters relationships deepen better and it has more episodes so you can really understand the characters emotions more.

This will never disappoint a drama lover. Even more so as it develops in the perfect way and it doesn’t feel rushed or incomplete.

별에서 온 그대 ~ Review

You Who Came From The Stars별에서 온 그대 or You Who Came From The Stars (my favourite translation of the title) Review

I admit, I started to watch this after seeing people constantly posting pictures on Tumblr. I know its a weird reason, but I was interested in what it would be like.

At first, I was really annoyed by Cheon Song Yi. Her English was a little annoying for me. But I guess it was the strong American accent that annoyed me more than anything. I did like how Jeon Ji Hyeon tried though. I think it was the character’s ego that annoyed me, when she thought she was everything.

Yet when I saw Do Min Joo(Kim Soo Hyun) I was glad he was a quiet, introverted in a way. It seemed to suit the qualities of an Alien. The TowelAlthough, I am still unsure as to why a towel is warn in the shower, I am sure some clever photography would have been best to make the view think he was naked… was the towel really necessary? I guess it was really a PG drama… but it was shown at 22:00… no young child should be up at this time…. Should have used clever shooting!

It was great to see Do Min Jo slowly open up and actually connect with human’s. Even if it was to an Actress who likes the lime-light. But she soon because a softy, and of course,  a clingy women who tries to act strong but isn’t inside.

The chemistry between the two leads was cute and it was nice to see them show more emotions as you watch each episode. Though, the supporting characters were too much most of the time. This drama had a lot of people who were clinging to their crushes and to be honest….. THEY SEEMED LIKE STALKERS!!! it was a little scary at times. If I ever become like that, I want someone to shoot me!

Overall, I really enjoyed watching it and was sympathizing with Do Min Jo’s emotional realization of what love really is. It was great to see him portray those heart squeezing scenes (when yo watch the clips at the end of each episode, you will understand).

I think the cast was picked well as all were able to show different emotions. Although, I found the side story of the Lee brother’s to be a little stale and wanted to skip past to go back to the lovers. But that is my personal opinion.

If you love watching romantic drama’s, then this should definitely be on your list to watch. Its not the normal where the female is this cutesy, dumb, and naive character. Yet, she can really get annoying at times. I think it is a little appealing to watch in some aspects. I wasn’t disappointed at the end of each episode. Instead, I was kept at the edge of my seat, waiting for the next episode to see what happens. Cliff hangers were good and the little bonus clips at the end of each episode added to the story and to the characters.

Watch it when you get the chance!!!

 

Stand Up ~Review

Japan’s American Pie. Its highly entertaining and the humour was something I totally understood that I couldn’t stop laughing.

I have to totally admit, that the only reason I watched this was because of the main actors; Ninomiya Kazurani, Narimiya Hiroki and Oguri Shun. I can say that Yampi was chosen to play one the really quiet and train spotting freak that he was able to play with his low action skills.

The story is about 4 boys at school are the last virgins and together, they make up a plan to get rid of their virginities. But of course it doesn’t all go well and it takes them a while to finally make that romantic summer vacation happen. There really is a lot of hilarious moments, in total Japanese style and I just couldn’t stop watching. The only downside, is the female lead, just didn’t really fit and she seem like any love interest from the main four boys.

But overall, the cast was well chosen and played the characters well. I really recommend you watch it and if you are ever feeling down, they will totally make you laugh and feel better.

Quartet ~ Review

I was really intrigued to see 松下優也 play a lead role in this drama and it didn’t disappoint!

This drama is one where 松下 finally début  as an actor. Its a great watch and its funny to see him play a rather dumb delinquent, if you will. But it was a shame the episodes were short.

I didn’t really know what to expect and I had read much about it apart from  松下優也 starring in it. It was great to see some fight scenes but I was watching a really low quality video, so I couldn’t see much detail. But I admit in places, the story line wasn’t that interesting, I didn’t really see why Kuchinawa chose them apart from all being linked to hating a certain person, but I guess they didn’t really want to dive into a load of side stories and make it worse.

Overall, its a good drama to watch, but I wish it was a little longer or possibly have a second season because the ending wasn’t really satisfying to watch.
