Challenge: Day 12 – Drama That You’re Ashamed of Liking

This question makes me laugh every time I read it! I can't help but imagine a person hiding in a corner, nodding her head with a reluctant yes, I like that pathetic drama but I will NEVER tell!

I think I’d have to choose The Birth of the Rich for this one. I’m not going to say I loved the drama because I didn’t. But I did enjoy parts of it despite its ridiculous soap operatic writing that bordered on inane at times.

The story is about Choi Suk-Bong who knows that he’s the son of one-night-stand of a rich dude and his mom and he’s out to find his rich dude dad since his mom died. There are at least three rich chaebols (business CEOs) who he thinks are potentially his dad. There’s also a girl who is a daughter of a chaebol and of course they end up working together and falling in love.

The birth daddy reveal went on literally forever in this show. So many bizarre things happened to Suk-Bong he could probably write a best-seller about all the crazy shenanigans in his life. So many clichés, so much boring filler, lol. Perhaps I was really bored during the time I watched this show, because I did finish it though I would “skip” through the episodes to watch scenes with the characters I liked.

My favorite character in this drama was the second lead dude Choi Woon-Suk played by Nam Goongmin who I really love as an actor. His character was controlling and evil but I enjoyed watching Nam Goongmin doing those cold expressions and watching his romance with Tae-Hee, which was really him just manipulating her interest in him to gain power. Oh my gosh, the ending was so hilarious! Woon-Suk ended up in jail with Tae-Hee visiting him, still in love with him. Of course, Woon-Suk was a repentant man by then, realizing that Tae-Hee was the best thing he ever had (which duh, Woon-Suk).


  1. I almost added this one to my watch list, just because Ji Hyun Woo! But I just couldn't do it :p

    1. I love Ji Hyun Woo! He was adorable here as usual... of course, his character was swallowed up by a lot of makjang craziness, lol.

  2. It sounds very makjang but I might check it out sometime because it sounds amusing, too. :)

    1. There were definitely some amusing parts. Tae-Hee was kinda funny in a crazy way. I actually liked her which is really rare for me to like any second-leading lady in a K-drama, lol.

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
