City Hunter: My Favorite K-Drama of 2011, yet!

Now I know what well-directed drama means (I’m so in love with PD Jin Hyuk!). Love this drama tone, love how it looks (I don’t even talk about Lee Min-ho!), love the story, love the conflicts, love the love rhombus!

Usual love rhombus: boring! Love rhombus with two hot men who are ready to kill each other with their cold piercing eyes: SUPER HOT!

Revenge for someone who hurts your family: a big NO NO. Vengeance for bad people who sacrifice weaklings for their own pleasure: OH YES I’m really buying it! This is what East of Eden should be like! I’m so glad that the tone becomes lighter when Lee Min-ho joins the cast, it suits him perfectly. More

City Hunter – First Impression

Now I present you… *drum rolls* the most awaited drama of the year (my version): City Hunter *yay!

When I watched the first episode I was quite surprised by the drama tone (my habit of not knowing anything before watching is quite useful I presume). It was a STRONG first episode. I was imagining that Lee Min-ho‘s newest drama will be kind of flowery-studded one – instead of blood-drenched one (since he is the leader of flower boys himself ~good ol times :p) But prepare yourself for completely new image of him (in a hot & sexy way :D).

Yes, he plays as Lee Yoon-sung aka John Lee, who will sweep out all corruption in Seoul, thanks to his godfather who raise him as a professional killer.

Just imagine Lee Min-ho as Korean version of Bourne, the word S.E.X.Y is not enough to describe it ❤ Forget about his past roles, our man-boy has grown to a new level of hotness 😀 More

Lie To Me – Final Review

Phewww.. finally I finish watching this lousy supposed-to-be-funny-and-exciting drama >_<”  I only endure it till the end because Kang Ji-hwan is here >.<

Really, what is wrong with the script writer? You have the best chemistry you could get, with professional actors it could be, but you screw it all just like that!

I won’t give any recaps here, because the story itself is simple ordinary enough. I will ruin your “fun” if I write it here.
Things I like

  • I envy the chemistry between Yoon Eun-hye and Kang Ji-hwan. They do look good together and their acting is so natural. Cute ❤
  • I like how their relationship is growing. This is my ideal type of relationship. You have to communicate well in order to know each other better. You get not only the serious part, but also the fun part.

Things I don’t like

  • The story only focuses on the main characters. I thought Sang-hee and Yoon-ju will play ‘important’ part of the story, but they don’t. Disappointing!
  • The conflict isn’t developed. You only get one big-fat-lie from beginning till end. Boring! (lots of fake unimportant conflict, though) More

Lie To Me – First Impression

I don’t know why I watch this drama on the first place because I don’t really like the female main lead Yoon Eun-hye. I get irritated every time she appears, which means lots of time! She plays as Gong Ah-jung, a nearly-30-something woman who works in civil ministries office. But on the first 3 episodes I couldn’t even see her walk straight. Either she’s been drunk or due to her ‘extremely’ high heels (or both)?? I don’t know which I resent more, Yoon Eun-hye or Gong Ah-jung, or maybe both?
This drama only focuses around her, which is my other complaint. There is not much scene about the male lead characters, Hyun Ki-joon (actor Kang Ji-hwan), or the second lead, Hyun Sang-hee (actor Sung Joon) for example. It just like this drama revolves around her and her only, and there is no relationship build-up whatsoever. Not a good thing. More

49 Days – Review

“Human beings’ hearts change…that’s their specialty. Forever? There’s no such thing. Love, then hate. Hot, then cold. Upset, then grateful. Full of resentment, then understanding.” – Sexy Scheduler

Cute Scheduler ^o^

I watched this drama purely because I’m interested to the story plot. I intended not to read any review beforehand so I didn’t set any expectation whatsoever. But it turns out to be AWESOME!

This drama is about the life (or should I say nearly afterlife) of two young women which happens to collide supernaturally. Shin Ji-hyun (actress – former singer Nam Gyu-ri), who lives seemingly perfect life, is going to be married in a week to Kang Min-ho (actor Bae Soo-bin). While Song Yi-kyung (actress Lee Yo-won) is a desperate young woman, who wants to end her life desperately. Their two different worlds collide when Song Yi-kyung try to commit suicide, hence resulting car accident to Shin Ji-hyun and make her falls into vegetative state.

However, Angel of Death (or in his own term, Scheduler) (actor Jung Il-woo) gives Shin Ji-hyun a second chance. She could continue her life if she can collect three ‘pure’ tears from her friends (family are excluded). Ji-hyun is allowed to borrow Yi-kyung’s body for 49 days (in order to collect those tears) without revealing her true identity.

The Funky Scheduler

While Ji-hyun makes every endeavor to gain her life (or body?) back, she founds out cruel truth about Kang Min-ho and her best friend, Shin In-jung (actress Seo Ji-hye), who are having affair behind her back all this time. More
