[Kdrama] Sly and Single Again

I have those usual days where I’ve got some time on my hands but I don’t actually know what to do and apparently, too lazy to do my blogging. This drama got me through those days.

I wasn’t so sure but I tried watching anyway. And I wasn’t disappointed. It was my first time watching a series with Sang Wook as a lead and I totally loved it! Lee Min Jung was okay and she’s really really pretty! I liked how they presented the story and the phasing wasn’t so bad. I was surprised with Seo Kang Joon,  the second male lead as he was really refreshing to see and it so happens that he also is appearing in the reality show Roommates which I’m currently rooting for (well, Dong Wook is there!).

This drama went along with the trend of having divorced couples get back together and give second chances a shot. I don’t disagree with the concept at all. Everyone deserves a second chance at everything because no one’s perfect; there should always be a room for mistakes that even scientists give errors a spot in their research outcomes. On that note, I’m giving this 8 out of 10 because there’s this something that makes me like Emergency Couple more.

[KDrama] Bel Ami

Another Jang Geun Suk drama!!! What can I say? Isn’t already given that if he’s the lead it’ll be one Daebak of a drama? And in addition to that, IU joins him to make it amazing all the more. So biased if me, sorry!

Well, in the series, Geun Suk looked more alike when he was the lead for He’s Beautiful; the only difference is that the character he’s playing is much more mature and bolder. His choice of roles shows he’s growing too.

And then there’s Jang Woo! My dear Jang Woo! After the scandal he had with another actress, I apparently tuned out from news about him and whatever he’s doing; so I missed him. I liked him ever since he appeared in WGM with EunJung until he did I Do, I Do with Kim Sun Ah! I see this drama as his comeback and I think he did it! Although he went back to being the 2nd lead role it was still good! He’s on my radar again!

The soundtrack is amazing too! Since the leads are singers in the real deal, I expected them to sing one or two from the soundtrack and it came out good! I love it!

I loved the complexity of the story and it makes me want to see the next ep right away! Geez! I think I skipped one day at work because I turned into a zombie after a one night straight of drama-marathoning this series.

I’m giving it 9.5 out of 10 because I still wish that they gave IU a time where she stood out more for herself and not just always the stupid girl who keeps following Geun Suk around.

[KDrama] King of Baking, Kim Tak Gu


I’m aware that I’m so late already because I was actually hesitant to watch this because I perceived it to be a heavy drama (well, it is indeed a heavy drama) but my infatuation for Yoon Shi Yoon took over. Watching him being so quiet and mature in Barefoot Friend made me want to see him more.

Through this drama, he actually proved his versatility and amazing capabilities in acting. I saw him being oh-so funny and childish in Flower Boy Next-Door but here. The funny and playful guy was seen too but he was able to let the audience feel that there is a certain sadness in him despite the positive facade.

It made me curious if such greedy and evil people really do exist and how far they could really go just to get their wants. It’s would be really heartbreaking to know that such person really do exist.

Talking about the ending, I like how he ended up with Lee Young Ah’s character. At the beginning of the series, I wanted Tak Gu to end up with her because she was funny, less gloomy and feisty. On the other hand, Eugene’s character was tainted with a very bad past that she ended up being the bad one. I always believed that leading ladies should be the ‘almost’ perfect one. That is the contributing factor why I don’t like her to end up with Tak Gu. It was also relieving that she was the one who make Joo Won’s character change and re-think about his actions that absolutely turned the story around.

Well, I’m giving it 10 out of 10! It was great! No dull moments, it made me really thrilled to go home after work, it made me laugh and cry and it was really educational. The soundtrack was incredibly amazing. The viewing experience was really nice especially when KyuHyun’s voice surfaces each time someone cries and delivers the lines. And most importantly, I love the ending, just exactly what I want it to be.
