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 – 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
