Hi guys! It’s been a long time but I return with another review of a drama I finished recently. There aren’t any major spoilers in this post so if you haven’t watched it yet, you’re safe to keep reading; it’s called Big and features these actors/actresses!

Gong Yoo – a fabulous actor who has been in dramas such as Coffee Prince, and is pretty attractive for his age! Seo Yoonjae/Kang Kyungjoon

Lee Minjung – an actress who is incredibly beautiful and has been in dramas like Wonderful Radio and also Boys Over Flowers! Gil Daran

Shin Wonho – an actor who doesn’t get enough scenes in the drama… He’s part of Cross Gene, a group that is pretty multicultural (if that’s the right term to use…) Kang Kyungjoon/Seo Yoonjae

Bae Suzy – I personally am a big fan of Suzy and her acting in this is great. She was also in Dream High! Mari

Baek Sunghyun – probably my personal favourite XD He was recently in Doctors! Gil Choongshik

Let’s move onto the plot now – I’d say the storyline is pretty typical, as it’s about a kid switching bodies with an adult and falling in love with the adult’s lover. Obviously, it’s a lot more complicated than that but it’s certainly a pleasure to watch.

Kang Kyungjoon is a transfer student at the high school Gil Daran has just started teaching at. Gil Daran has a brother called Gil Choongshik, and is soon to be married to Seo Yoonjae, a man she met at a wedding. Then, as a result of an accident between Kyungjoon and Yoonjae, their souls end up switching – all because of a certain miracle…

I loved each character a lot, because they were all different and Gong Yoo’s acting was so superb – he really portrayed Kang Kyungjoon very well. He had very good chemistry with Lee Minjung too, which is always great to see – it sort of reminds me of Secret Garden’s Kim Joowon and Gil Raim, whose chemistry on the screen was truly exceptional!

The only down side to this drama was probably the questions it left hanging at the end. I won’t go into detail about them but certainly, I didn’t find the ending particularly satisfactory (but when are Korean Drama endings ever? Actually, I take that back. [She Was Pretty] had a very good ending!).

That’s my review done – I know it’s short but I have a couple more I want to write. I’ll leave it there!

Hot Young Bloods [Review] January 5, 2016

I now present… another review! Yippee…!

hotyoungblood001_zps1a136509

This one is called Hot Young Bloods and it’s a Korean romantic comedy (the best genre!) film set in the 1980s. I found it special because it’s not just your typical high school film; well it kinda is, but there’s history involved too. It revolves around delinquency and love, and touching other people’s girlfriends. A lotta testosterone in these guys, I’m telling you.

The cast includes:

Lee Jong Suk (my favourite!) – previously in Pinocchio, Doctor Stranger, I Can Hear Your Voice

Park Bo Young – previously in Werewolf Boy, Oh My Ghostess

Kim Young Kwang – previously in Pinocchio, D-Day

Lee Se Young – previously in Adolescence Medley, Horror Stories 2

I haven’t included many spoilers, so it’s a little bit brief.

The main plot: Yeongsook is a feared leader of a female gang, and supposed girlfriend of Kwangsik, who is the feared leader of the male gang at a rival school. Although Yeongsook acts very tough, she actually has a crush on the school playboy, Joonggil, but he’s pursuing a transfer student who isn’t actually who she appears to be. Joonggil is afraid of Kwangsik, so doesn’t pursue Yeongsook, but still often gets beaten up by him.

The film teaches us about relationships and feelings; but mainly it’s just fun to watch. I couldn’t stop watching and really hoped that it was a drama because I wanted more! The ending is sort of unexplained and there’s a random character that brings humour but also a bit of confusion (the runner); however, it’s certainly worth watching if you’re fans of the actors/actresses or love romantic comedies!

I’d rate this 8.5/10 🙂

But yeah, I’ve got exams tomorrow so I’m gonna go ^^’ Enjoy!

Emergency Couple [Review] November 30, 2014

Hey there 🙂 Here’s my review for the 2014 drama starring Song Jihyo and Choi Jinhyuk called Emergency Couple 🙂

Basically, the two main characters (Oh Changmin and Oh Jinhee) used to be married, but got divorced. It was a pretty nasty scene before they divorced; but they got it over and done with, and they’d practically forgotten about each other. Now after a fateful meeting at a friend’s wedding, they met once more. But that’s not the only fateful meeting; the next is in the hospital, where the next 15 episodes take place. Turns out they’re gonna have to work with each other as interns, or else they’ll all fail…

So how did I find out about this?

Well, I think I was watching Running Man (or something like that) when they announced that Jihyo would be in this new drama. Since it was new, I didn’t want to watch it (I would rather wait for it to finish so I can watch it all at once). Then my friend told me to watch it, so I decided; well okay, maybe I’ll give it a try.

I re-downloaded Viki onto my iPod touch and started watching it.

And let me tell you, I could NOT stop watching! It’s like every single Korean drama, if it’s good then you’ll want to watch it all at once. It was kinda the same thing in every episode, but the love story grows in the background and pulls you in.

This next bit might spoil it for you if you haven’t watched it. So I’m just gonna put it right here: *SPOILER ALERT* (it’s not as serious as it may seem)

So obviously with every drama there’s gonna be something I don’t like. So for this drama, what I don’t like is how Changmin wants them to get back together, and when he fails, Jinhee wants them to get back together (whilst Changmin doesn’t). That bit of the drama takes up some time and it doesn’t really do anything for me.

Either way, this is definitely a drama I recommend; especially for anyone who is interested in Medicine! They use so many medical terms that it’s difficult to catch them all; so I’m slowly ploughing through, writing down each disease and condition, and doing my own research on it. See, K-Dramas can be very educational 🙂

Thanks for reading, I hope this was helpful to you (in whatever way!), and check back soon for more posts 🙂 Let me know if there’s anything you want me to write about, I’ll happily do it!
