Challenge: Day 17 – Least Favorite Drama


I usually try and forget those pesky “least favorite” dramas. Like permanently erase them from my memories with secret alien technology I commandeered from Area 51. After looking through an extensive list of dramas (many thanks to MyDramaList) I suddenly remembered a drama I hadn't thought of in a long time. Take Care of the Young Lady (or My Fair Lady) – a drama I watched very early on when I first started watching K-dramas. I actually finished the whole thing (I never would’ve done that today, lol). The story is about a guy in debt who becomes a bratty rich girl's butler.


I can’t remember much else except that it was a very disjointed story that was soooo boring, the leads had no chemistry, the heroine was soooo boring, and everything about it was blah and disconnected. I think it started out better… I remember liking moments (what were those moments though…). I also remember that by the end of the show I was more interested in seeing if the second leads liked each other than the main couple. Ha! Overall, it was a show I forgot very quickly after ending it. So, yeah. Was it the worst? Not really, but just so mediocre that I’d call it a “least favorite”.

  1. saw the first episode and I just sort of decided not to continue. I didn't care or the characters and the actors are wasted here.

    1. First episodes definitely can make or break a show for me too. ;)

  2. I didn't even make it through the first episode of this drama! Which broke my heart because I ADORE Yoon Eun Hye.

    My least favorite drama has to be Color of Woman or Level Seven Civil Servant. Never have I wanted the hours of my life wasted on a drama back more than when I watched both of those.

    1. It was so sad how wasted Yoon Eun Hye was in this drama. Her and everyone else, because they had a lot of strong actors.

      Haven't seen Color of Woman (but it sounds bad, lol) and Level Seven Civil Servant... sigh. That one was so disappointing. It could've easily been my least favorite however I dropped it midway, so I didn't think it qualified. ;)

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
Ahem.
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…
