Challenge: Day 20 – Most Underrated Drama


I’m choosing The Girl Who Sees Smells (Sensory Couple) as my underrated gem. This drama is based on a web-comic (which just about every K-drama is nowadays, hehe) which I haven’t seen, but tells a story of a girl who can visually see smells and track them. She meets a young rookie police officer who has no sense of touch or pain in his body. Together, they solve a major serial killer murder case that the heroine's past is tangled up in.

The Girl Who Sees Smells Web Comic
Though this drama’s story can be simplistic at times and there are missteps plotting wise, this is such a cute, funny and even at times intense drama. The hero and heroine are absolutely adorable and have so many great lighthearted and comedic moments. The villain is chilling and even intriguing as we try to figure out what drives this serial killer and what made him like he is. Though the show could’ve given us more answers at the end, it’s still an exciting and satisfying ending that brought the drama together.

  1. I love this drama although the crimes are a bit gruesome but the leads make up for it. actually, I do not notice any lags in the story/plot, I thought it was pretty well done plus I really like how they visualize the scents - not too cute and not too harsh. it's worth watching.

    have a lovely day.

  2. This drama is one of my favorites of last year! I am biased though, as I want to have Yoochun's babies. But still, it was surprisingly good! And I don't like Nam Goong Min all that much, but I really loved him as the villain! He should always play the villain in dramas, I liked him so much more as a bad guy than I ever do as a romantic interest :p I agree about the ending not giving us enough answers. Like really, how does he die without telling us why or how he chose her parents, or really telling us anything about his prosopagnosia, or giving us any good motives, other than because he was sociopathic. I like a little more rhyme and reason to my baddies!

    1. Ever time I watch a drama with Yoochun, I love him more as an actor. He's just so natural on screen. I'm a big Nam Goong Min fan, so I'm good with him playing either, though I do think he has a natural talent at playing baddies.

      And yes, I had a lot of questions I wanted answered. There were a lot of intriguing questions about him that the drama could've explored. Oh wells. Still love the drama. :D

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…
