After three or four years of working three jobs to support him and keeping herself and their connections a secret, she discovers he only thinks of her as his housekeeper and has other girlfriends. Gong Shi vows to become a famous star herself and get revenge on him.
The main character has some cute little ghosts or demon selves that sounds worse than it really isthey help her persuade people to her way of thinking sometimes. She can outpace a train on her bike, which also comes when she whistles. However, what happens in her fight to revenge herself on Shan is that she learns about herself, about life and love, about doing a good job, about dedication and consideration for others, and about acting.
There is a love interest, but there is not a conclusive ending wrapped up in a tidy bow. Another performing arts school story, but a little darker than Dream High.
28 best lee jong suk images on Pinterest | Korean actors, Drama korea and Korean dramas
I really enjoyed it. I really enjoy the way the backgrounds of the kids and the second teacher are peeled back episode by episode, like layers of an onion. At the end of the season, I experienced a rarity in K-dramas for me, it ended too quickly. I wanted extensions, and lots of them.
I wanted to follow these kids at least through to the end of high school. Loaded with heart and bromance, and no caveats beyond the usual some language. Reviewed at the link. Written by the same team as Panda and Hedgehog with several of the same actors and many of the same things I love notably warm sibling relationships and lots of cute. Based on a true story, fabulously well done, gripping heroic story of some of the student soldiers of the Korean War. I am the mother of a 14 year old boy, the mother-in-law of a veteran of the Iraq War who enlisted at 18 I babysat him at 13the wife of a veteran.
This is about boy-soldiers, high school students defending their country in the midst of the Korean War. I can even talk about it out loud. Definitely in my top ten, probably my second favorite rom-com in K-drama land. Flower Boy Next Door: I loved this movie. If you liked Edward Scissorshands you should love this one, too. The werewolf boy is not that kind of werewolf. Korean Food- featured in every episode, in detail with close up shots, mood music, and descriptions that will have you licking your lips and wishing for some Korean food.
It will make your mouth water even when you have no idea how it tastes. Also stars Kim Rae Won who really made the emotional connection for viewers in this show. Patzzi is the name of the mean sister in a Korean folk tale similar in some ways to the Cinderella tale.
Only ten episodes, light rom-com with a kind of silly but fun ending. Mostly squeaky clean except for one very regrettable scene in the first episode. I also really like Kim Rae Won as an actor, or maybe he just chooses roles that are well suited to him. He does the genial, warm, friendly, bumbling but kind-hearted thing really well. Ostensibly a boxing show, really about family, friends, loyalty, honor, and success. Kim Bum and Joo Jin Mo own the screen in every one of their scenes, and whenever they are together, the bromance just snap, crackles, and pops.
Beefcake abounds, too, so if you are offended by scenes of shirtless males, you should omit this one. Rom-Com, very, very funny. By day our main characters are an ordinary family of housewife mom, college prof dad, high school music teacher son, and high school student son. The family is adorable together. The high school music teacher is in love with another teacher, whose brother happens to be a prosecutor who believes Javert was the hero of Les Miserables. Three caveats- I can only find it at Viki.
Girlfriend is seriously into passionate kissing. These are fixable with some good previewing and some tedious attention to detail turn the subs off during the swearing and her reference to the physical aspect of their relationship, ffwd the kissing if you desire, although the first of those is also one of the funniest scenes in the movie.
Scent of a Woman— this is a PG with some smoldering hot tangos and issues with getting the wedding and bedding in the wrong order, but, oh, my stars and garters.
I like ridiculously happy and unlikely smiley faced endings, tied in a lovely bow. Nevertheless, I liked this even though I needed a full box of tissues and some Gator-ade to replenish my body salts after I cried so much that basically my skin turned to leather and my blood was reduced to dehydrated dust.
But this, this was fairly incredible. The acting was outstanding, right down to the minor detail that Korean characters using English were actually using English with skill. There is the incredibly annoying noble idiot theme, which I really, really, really hate.
But for the rest- well scripted, well acted, well directed, and genuinely funny and darling in many scenes. It really is a combo of comedy, wonderful love story, and messily sobbing heart-break.
The female lead begins the show as an employee of a large tour company. The main male lead is the son of the owner and one of the major CEOs, newly appointed. Where Are We Going? Only way cuter than whatever it is you are imagining. That Winter the Wind Blows — If I read only the description, I never would have watched this one, but I read a recap that was soaring in its praise, so I took a chance. Click on the title to read my review. You can read it here.
Ad Genius Lee Tae Baek; Rom com, understated, no fireworks, but I thought it was really, really sweet and I loved the warmth between the two romantic leads and the way their connection grew out of shared values and friendship.
Secret Of Virtuous Widow: Nine Times Time Travel- time travel series with an interesting premise and trick to the time traveling.
Big adrenaline rush, love this actor. But there are some caveats, see what they are here. Prosecutor Princess— much sweeter and cuter than I expected, and not nearly as shallow as I presumed it would be. I liked this- but it is pretty much totally a chick-flick. Dating Agency Cyrano— rom-com sort of like Hitch on steroids, maybe not quite so funny as Will Smith, but cleaner and lots more cutesy stuff.
The main character is one of the dads in Appa! Cute and clean with some angsty, mysterious stuff.
Also part of the flower-boy set, so, again, lots and lots of pretty. Contract marriage, forced proximity, rom-com- loved it. Full review at the link. Review at the link. Monstar — cute, teen romance, lots of gorgeous music. Almost all of the main actors are singers the main character plays a teen idol in a boy band, and he actually is a teen idol in a boy band, but surprisingly, he can really act. Watched it with my 17 year old.
Set in olden days Korea, features a man who, unbeknownst to himself, is actually half human, half divine creature of some sort his father is a gumiho, a guardian of the forest. Very funny, lots of action, sword fights, martial arts, ninja stuff, lots of cute. I find the ending somewhat dissatisfactory, but to explain why is a spoiler.
I would watch this with my kids with a couple caveats. Protect the Boss — Rom Com, seems cliched but it is not entirely- some of it is poking fun at those cliches.
Romance with many comedic moments, suspense, drama, and some heart-ache. I take issue with one very contrived plot point, and the basic theology is reincarnation centered, and, you know, I hate to be made to cry and then cry again, but I never felt like I was being manipulated.
Also, very, very clean. I liked this one a lot, though, even though it broke my heart in surprising ways I love it for the surprises. I loved this longer, family drama series. I loved the strong, yet still feminine, women characters- all of them except one. I loved the central love story, and I loved the family connections between siblings who had no blood bond.
I loved the acting. Oh, My Lady — Oh, my goodness, I loved this. Idol star discovers he had an child five years ago.
More at the link. A ghost story and a rom-com. Like 49 days, involves body swapping and 49 days for the soul to take care of things on earth. Dad, Where Are You Going? Kelly, Badgermum, reviewed this one on her blog. Just You- a sweet TW drama Taiwanese is reviewed here. Loved this lightweight rom-com with the emphasis on Korean food. He was the lead in my other favorite Greatest Love, the N. Lee Seung-gi became a cop to find out who is behind the murder of his mother, which orphaned him as a child.
Kang Ji Hwan- I love him. He cracks me up. But at least Kwang Soo made it genuinely funny too, despite the cheese. Who doesn't love that song? B What the weird. When they say psychological thriller mystery, they mean it. It was so hard to follow along at first. Mostly because I didn't really pay attention to the premise as much I was so confused, until I read that it was about a writer who is paranoid, who is having problems distinguishing between reality and hallucination, and the show is a weird mosaic of dream and reality, with a lot of lighting effects, etc, then I could sit back and enjoy it more.
Really you just have to roll with it, because it's not going to make sense until the end, and even then it's not going to completely make sense because it's all a bunch of dreams and things all mashed up.
Really well done though. I liked it, even if it confused me all the time. My advice is to just know what you are getting yourself into before watching it, and then pay attention so you are not even more confused, but don't try too hard to make it make sense, unless you really need to dig for super deep meanings. Those are probably better for the second time around anyways. A Sometimes I wonder if there is a Korean comedy film without some sort of boner humor in it.
This one was no exception, so I feel a little nasty after watching it. The movie itself was a cheesy sort of funny, where a mafia boss falls in love, but the girl turns out to be a prosecutor, so there is comedy and drama, and reform and sacrifice and all that.
It just didn't have a whole lot of meat to it. It was just something to watch and not super good or super bad in my opinion. It did have some really good moments though, so It was just meh to me. That could have possibly been my mood too, and who I was with which might have been no one.
Maybe in a larger group? A Basically prince and the pauper with a very political take. I watched this over Christmas break and the whole rest of the week my brother and I were saying "Jeonha! Punish us with death! It's about one of the most famous kings in Joseon history, and how he disappeared for like two weeks.
So the story is the king gets poisoned and so they bring in a double to play him until he can be cured. While it's very unrealistic in resolution, besides the unlikelihood of actually having an exact doppelganger to take his place, it's a good movie. B Surprisingly more serious than I thought it would be. I was expecting just the funny of Shim Eun Kyung acting like a granny, which there was plenty of and it was amazing, but there were serious themes too, like feeling old and useless, the harsh life of a single mom, and stuff like that.
I think that made it more meaningful. However, I do think that the "relationship" or "romance" with her and Lee Jin Wook was weird and lame. I didn't really like it or get it, and was glad that it wasn't a huge part of the show, because blah.
Mostly I was rooting for Park In Hwan the whole time. Also Jinyoung rocked it!
So it was a good mixture of interesting, weird, and funny. I like how the theme all came back to family. Also, the cameo at the end was the best thing ever. I screamed with delight. A Ok, so this is a ridiculous sort of funny movie, but super fun to watch. She is busy on an assignment as she is a spy.
Later he returns, also an agent, but with a background in analysis. They are both working on the same case through different angles, and end up getting thrown together not knowing what the other is doing. Kang Ji Hwan works the comedy well, as a bumbling nerd in the field for the first time.
It's just ridiculous funniness the whole time. I did enjoy watching it more the second time, when I watched it with a bunch of friends, since that made the laughter more contagious. The drama Level 7 Civil Servant, starring Joo Won, was based off of this movie, but the movie is still better, I think, since it's not drawn out into 16 episodes.
I like Park Ki Woong that much.

As silly as this movie is, it is also super fun. We've got a Japanese exchange student coming to Korea to find her crush and renting out a room at a boarding house, which happens to be the landlord's son's room, so it's got tons of awkward humor especially with those unfortunate guys who are just doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. Super awkward humor and then language humor as Ki Woong's character is constantly being called Junk Man instead of Jung Man by the Japanese girl, and as he is forced to be her Korean tutor, he teaches her all the bad words and rude phrases at first.
It's just a silly funny movie, and perfect for a goofy mood where you want to laugh. Also perfect if you like Park Ki Woong, because he's a boxer in this one, and so he has to fight with his shirt off and his body is pretty fine, rawr. It was super awkward in this one, which is probably the biggest reason for the low rating. Also, it's super dark humor, because the girl is a murderer She's got a very dark past which she is trying to get rid of, but she has to get rid of a few people before she can start over.
I'm always going to be suspicious of kimchi fridges after this and Grandpa's Over Flowers Investigative Team because that's where the bodies are always hid. Also the ending was a little too weird for me. I'll admit that I just didn't really understand it.121004 JAEJOONG&SONG JI HYO are a BEAUTIFUL COUPLE!
I think they were going for a more open ended "maybe" type ending, but I'm not sure. A I love Song Joong Ki, but this film is a little Ji Woong Song Joong Ki is a college graduate with no job and so still lives off of his mom. He meets Hong Sil Han Ye Seul who lives in the rooftop apartment across from him and is the thriftiest girl on the planet. She lives off the small amounts of money she collects through various things she does, such as recycling and reselling things she finds while rummaging through old homes and garbage heaps.

When Ji Woong is kicked out of his apartment, he ends up living in a tent outside her house when he learns she is responsible. She agrees to let him stay if he helps her. It's quirky, I guess that is the word for it. Enjoyable in it's own way. C This is pretty much the typical romcom. A girl who works for a dating agency, even though she has pretty much no dating life, invents a boyfriend, and then gets tangled up in a client's life. If I remember correctly she had a perfect record and he is too hard to match up, and then she gets too involved trying to get him a dream date or something like that.
It was pretty cute, but a little predictable and on the boring side. But not bad by any means.
B This one was probably the best out of the four that I watched. I actually tried to start at the beginning and watch all of it, but still missed the first part, but I still liked it. It was better the second time though, when I actually knew what was going on. This film reminded me a bit of Dating Agency: Cyrano or Ouran High School Host Club in the fact that it's a bunch of amazingly talent people forming a company that makes other people's lives better.
In this case Personal Tailor is a company of four people who help people live their wishes for a day, to get away from their normal lives.
They help an official prove himself incorruptible by testing him with all sorts of corrupt temptations as if he were a higher up official, let a little fishing lady live like a rich lady for a day, help a blockbuster film director find highbrow art, etc. It is very witty and clever as well as goofy at parts, and is very tongue in cheek. Also it leaves you with a good message.
Also the men are very good looking, even if one is old and bald. He's like Yul Brynner classy. But the younger guy was obviously hotter. B Time travel film about a 30 year old woman who goes back in time to fix her life through fixing her high school relationships.
She blames everything on her relationship with the bad boy, and tries to keep herself from making the same mistakes twice. It actually has a pretty good message as she is able to help her present self more than her past, and it's a big learning journey. Not an amazing film, but pretty good all things considering. The ending is probably the cheesiest part, but that might be because you are more invested in the past boys than the present boys, so it doesn't translate as well.
However, it has some clever twists, so it was still interesting to me. Not too bad for a time traveling romcom. Having also watched the Anime, the film seems to have drawn from both the anime and the manga, but probably follows closer to the manga. It is a little hard to follow if you aren't familiar with the story, but not so bad that you can't get what's going on if you pay attention. It's also a lot darker than the anime as it is more realistically done. The fighting is cool and Sato Takeru is a very handsome man.
T.O.P Loves Me, And Now I Have Proof
It's about an assassin of the Meiji Restoration who has now sworn never to kill again, even using a reverse blade sword, finding himself forced to fight again to protect his new found friends and home. It's historical, but also a bit fantasy in the fact that everyone's fighting skills are on an epic level that is pretty much impossible. Even with the more realistic film adaptation, there is a bit of fantasy in the fighting.
But mostly, it's awesome fighting, with lots of laughter, and some romance too. There are two sequels that came out in as well, finishing off the manga story line. This is techinically a drama special, but since it's more movie length, I thought it would be better to review it here than with the dramas. This movie is just weird. It's about this gangster who is released from prison and is all the sudden being followed by the ghost of this girl.
All she does is stare at him, and lead him to a bunch of kittens. He hires Ki Woong to figure out what the ghost wants, but since he's the only one who can see the ghost it doesn't really work. But the ghost ends up leading the gangster to review his past and make restitution for some things, maybe.
At least figure out a bit more who he is and what he's done. Then the end is super weird and the plot twists and mystery get solved and I'm left thinking "ok Also Park Ki Woong isn't really in it that much.
It's mostly just Lee Wong Jong and that ghost. A- My favorite thing about watching this was that one of the friends I was watching it with was so angry about the ending and voiced it very vocally.
I think the contrast from the hilarious first half to the extremely dark and violent second half was too stark for her. She wanted it to stay light and funny. But does that ever happen with movies about North Korean agents these days?
Anyways, it has the perfect awkward funny first half, with the three North Korean agents trying to adapt to a shanty town in Seoul. Then, things get serious when they get caught up in some tricky politics that turns everything upside down, and things get violent, dark, and a bit confusing.
