Day 7 – Your Drama Crush


Already on Day 7! Time is whizzing by. This is an interesting question as I like a lot of drama characters but can’t really consider it a crush as they’re not someone I’d ever really want to like in real life, lol. But as long as the character remains in the realm of dramaland than my drama crush would go to…

Ha Woo-Jin in Liar Game. He’s an ex-con professor who was out for revenge against the company that ruined his mother and led her to her death. He ends up in a dangerous, everything-is-not-as-it-seems reality game show that’s hosted by a mysterious man with a dark agenda.


Why do I love Woo-Jin? First of all, he’s incredibly brainy smart, equivalent to a Korean Sherlock. He might act grouchy and detached but underneath he has a precious marshmallow heart. He protects his friends with fierce loyalty. He’s actually very compassionate in nature, which shows when he’s forgiven or risked his life for someone undeserving. And of course, the dimples. And great hair.

Runners up:
Officer Choi Moo-Gak (The Girl Who Sees Smells) as he’s one of those rare down-to-earth drama leads who’s sweet and funny.
Eun Shi-Kyung (King2Hearts) a royal guard whose shy, utterly sweet and loyal.

Lee Jeong-Hwan (Fugitive of Joseon/Heaven’s Mandate), a detective/royal guard who’s hilarious grouchy but of course syrupy sweet underneath all that gruffness.

  2. He really was! He was so smart and cunning, but he had this vulnerable side to him that you couldn't help but love him whenever we got to glimpse it! And his need to protect his people, he was a lot more like his mom than he wanted to admit!

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…
