Korean Drama Recommendations..

This is the list of recommended Dramas by my best friend and drama expert May <3

Autumn Tale : 2000

My first Korean drama. One of the best classic Korean dramas :). song seung hun song hye kyo :).

My Girl: 2006

One of my all-time fav ron-com. HALARIOUS, I have watched it time after time and love it every time I watch it :D. I have so many good memories watching it :).

Winter Sonata

Another classic romantic drama :). Filmed by the same director who made “ Autumn Tale” a big hit !

Boys over Flowers- 2009

One word 'EPIC' ron-com! My 2nd most re-watched drama :) (1st being 'My girl')

You're beautiful-2009

Similar to BOF . Jang Geun Suk Park Shin Hye :).

Personal Preference- 2010

Another really good ron-com :). Not as good as BOF but still really really good. LMH cute semi-rabbit teeth :p.

"My Girlfriend is a gumiho/nine-tailed fox" 2010

Hilarious and heart-warming ron-com. My first and fav Lee Seungi's drama :D. A phrase you are most likely to learn after watching this drama "namu namu namu chiowahae/really really really like ----". Lee seungi Shin minha.

"Dream High" 2010

Like Minaz said, korean glee. May be a little bit better version :p. Kim hyun joong is in the 1st ep i almost fainted!! - p.s its minzi! haha

"Mary stayed all night" 2010

 This is where my JGS fever started, he has the cutest n most charismatic KILLER SMILE *sighs....*. My first JGS drama :D. Both of them started their acting career from a young age. No wonder they are so good at acting, they look so cute together in this drama :).

"My Princess" 2010.

Another awesome ron-com. Song Seung hun Kim Tae Hae

"49 days" 2011

Not so typical K-drama, amazing plots that will keep you interested week after week! "Fantasy" and "Romance" . I all the actors/actresses here, they are all AMAZING ! 

"City Hunter" 2011

Ron-con + action. There's only been a few eps so can't say much about it. This is not the official pic, but I just like LMH hair in this pic best. In addition, he wears his gorgeous smile with cute semi-rabbit teeth in this pic :p. 

Lee Minho Park Min Young (real life couple alert woho)

"Lie to me" 2011

Typical k ron-com that will makes you want to watch more and more! I'm a hug fan of Yun Eun Hye(actress) ! My first drama of Kang Ji Wan. 

Awesome chemistry between the main leads. YEH KJW

"Greatest Love/best Love" 2011

The funniest drama of 2011 so far! I'm LOL-ing like a fool in every ep. Hong sisters are the best when it comes to comedy in romantic drama ! If you like 'my girl' or 'you're beautiful', you will love this too :).

" Scent of a woman" 2011

I thought this drama would be sad and depressing after reading the description of it. But I checked it out anyway because it is the first drama of Lee Dong Wook from " MY GIRL " (my fav k-drama) since he's out from his military service. I was hooked from the first ep !!! It's up the 8th one now and there isn't a single ep that I don't love watching. There is something about this drama that makes me wanting more and more !!! It's witty and heart-warming :). I really hope the ending won't be sad, I'm a sucker for happy ending :P. 

P.s - my favourite ost of this drama - by Junsu from JYJ, who also had a cameo scene in ep 5.

*Protect the Boss* 2011

Cute and funny ron-com drama. It's up to ep 4 now, so far so good !!! I luv every ep of it and can't wait for the next week !!!

The song is so cute, energetic and very catchy!

*Flower boy Ramyun shop* 2011

A typical korean rom-con with a touch of anime quirkiness and adorable characters, which make this drama refreshing. A bit like BOF in a way since both of them have 4 flower boys :p! This drama is definitely worth the fuzz :D !!!

*Me too, flower" 2011 

RON-com I was initially put off by the name and the official poster of it on 'dramacrazy'. But after watching a few episodes, I absolutely love it! I've seen up to ep 13, so far SO GOOD! Really interesting plot and quite romantic ^_^.

*99 days with the star* 2011

Japanese Ron-com. I initially watched this drama for Kim Tae Hee but I later found Ok Taecyeon( 2PM) as a side bonus! Even though I needed a few eps of Japanese accents adaptation from Korean accents, I really started to like the drama, the plot and even the romance/a bit of chemistry between Kim Tae Hee and this old Jap actor :p!

I absolutely love this song, it's a shame the Jap doesn't do the Ost properly or doesn't post it on youtube. 

And here it is....the dramas from the drama expert!!! Trust me she knows what she's talking about she's watched A LOT of dramas!!! :) 

So here you go...if you haven't seen any of these be sure to watch them!! 

Lots of love!!

Kdrama in 2011..

It has been ABSOLUTELY too long since I last posted on this Blog..I have been so bad and so busy with just life..Graduating and finding work and becoming an adult is hard going lol! Even so I have not been posting I have definitely not stopped watching and looking out for new dramas and movies to melt my heart and to make me ottokae beyond belief and 2011 wasn't short of any excitment...

1) Flower Boy Rameyon Shop

BaWool, Cha ChiSoo, EunBi, Choi Sasang, HyunWoo

I have LITERALLY just finished watching this and could not wait to share with the world what I thought about this. This is a new drama that has been sending the hearts of girls all of the world on fire with a great script, very well written characters and ridiculously cute ottokae moments...I don't think I've squealed so loud in ages and of course damn hot 'flower boys'

** Lee Ki Woo I love you Marry me?**

This drama is a romantic Comedy *the best kind really* that tells the story of Yang EunBi (Lee Chung Ah) who is an ex volleyball player training to become a teacher and Cha ChiSoo (Jung Il Woo) a rich high school student who strangely falls in  love with Yang EunBi. Of course no romantic drama is plain sailing, this is were the other leading man Choi Sasang (Lee Ki Woo)  *tan tan taaaaaaaaaan* and the other fun characters come into the picture and provide the laughs and the back story. This quickly turns into a Love Triangle with Cha ChiSoo and Choi Sasang fighting for EunBi's affection and omg one lucky girl because if I had Jung Il Woo and Lee Ki Woo looking at me like that well..I dunno I might have fainted!! I don't want to give too much of the story away but if you want something that makes you feel like a total teenage girl squealing I would def recommend this drama!! *Teaser- the scene between Choi sasang and Eunbi - the picking up scene O.M.G I was rolling in my bed giggling!!*

Unlike other dramas I surprisingly didn't cry and was kinda rooting for the other leading man because as you might have guessed already I love him! lol BUT none of the less the ending didn't lack emotion and the OST were totally addictive! I have got all the OST downloaded and uploaded onto my phone! :)

One of the best dramas of 2011! Possibility of season 2 next year YES PLEASE!!!
Minzi's rating: 8/10

2) My Princess

I also recently finished watching this drama...This was my first Kim Tae Hee drama...everyone kept talking about her and about the drama I thought I should give it a go..and well shame on me for not watching it before..!! I also ottokae-ed a few times during this drama and could not stop watching!

This also is a romantic Comedy that tells the story of a normal college student Lee Seol (Kim Tae Hee) who finds out she's the only living decent of the late king..i.e the princess of korea. The president of the Daehan Group works hard to return her to the Monarchy and his Grandson Park Hae Young (Song Seung Hun) is put in charge of training the Princess and make her Monarchy worthy. The drama really kicks off when he finds himself totally attracted to Lee Seol and her cute charm but is faced with a dilemma when he realises restoring her to the Monarchy will be the reason behind him loosing his inheritance.

The chemistry between the two leads is like bursting at the seems...they are soo damn cute together its incredible! When I started watching the drama I thought oh he's okay looking and ended it it thinking wowzaaaaaaaaaa come to mama!! haha he is def swoon worthy and the storyline between them is sooo well written. The push and pull the not knowing if they will be together and confession even the kiss I was like OTTOKAE!! 

Its a very heart warming story not to add Lee Ki Kwang is in it and is as cute as ever!!! *Beast fans rejoice wohoooooo* and I can see why people in Korea and so KIM TAE HEE IS AMAZIng...she is a brilliantly good actress!!!! The ost is catchy I've been listening to it all day..!! I did end up crying at certain points in the drama because you just feel so bad for her!! * it seems that's how I rate how much I've liked the drama haha*

Def a recommendation for 2011!
Minzi's rating: 7/10
