안녕하세요 (Annyeonghaseyo) – That’s “Hello!” in Hangul (Korean.)
Thinking about changing up your television habits a bit and checking out a bit of Kdrama? Well, here are three dramas you should definitely check out.
1| Descendants of the Sun – To say that I adore this drama is a huge understatement. Not only is it the first drama that Song Joong Ki has starred in since completing his mandatory military service, but it also has a very interesting story line.
Shi-Jin (Song Joong-Ki) is the captain of the special forces. He catches a motorcycle thief with Sergeant Major Dae-Young (Jin Goo). The thief is injured during his capture and is sent to the hospital. Dae-Young realises his cellphone was stolen by the thief and goes to the hospital to retrieve his cellphone. In the emergency room, Shi-Jin meets Dr. Mo-Yeon (Song Hye-Kyo) for the first time. He falls in love with her immediately. Mo-Yeon mistakenly assumes Shi-Jin is part of thief’s criminal gang. He proves to her that he is a soldier with the help of army doctor Myeong-Joo (Kim Ji-Won). – Asian Wiki
… and that’s just how the meet for the first time. At 6 episodes in, this drama just keeps getting better. Want to check it out? It airs on Wednesday/Thursdays @ 10pm in Korea and is usually subbed and up on the Viki app by the the evening.
2| Please Come Back, Mister – I was on the fence about trying out this drama, but after watching the first episode it had me in a fit of giggles. I just love the humorous parts of this drama, and look forward to seeing how the characters will end up.
A man is worked to death, but he comes back to the living world in the attractive body of another man for a limited amount of time. Lee Hae-Joon (Rain) is a perfect man with good looking appearance. He works as a section chief in the women’s apparel section at a department store. His body is actually possessed by the spirit of Kim Young-Soo (Kim In-Kwon) who was worked to death. Hong Nan (Oh Yeon-Seo) is a beautiful woman, but her spirit is possessed by tough guy (Kim Su-Ro). Shin Da-Hye (Lee Min-Jung) is a beautiful housewife, but her husband suddenly dies. She falls into a love triangle with Lee Hae-Joon and a promising store employee (Yoon Park). – AsainWiki
This drama airs on Wednesdays/Thursdays in South Korea and can be seen on both the Viki and Dramafever app. (I usually go with whoever has it subbed the quickest…)
3| Goodbye, Mr. Black – This drama premiered last week, and it’s got my hooked. I haven’t seen Moon Chae Won in a drama since Good Doctor, and Lee Jin-Wook starred in the second Kdrama I watched, Nine-Nine Time Travels.
Cha Ji-Won (Lee Jin-Wook) is a UDT officer of the Navy Special Operations Force. He is positive and has personal charm, but he falls into a desperate situation due to a friend’s betrayal. He goes through numerous life or death situations. Cha Ji-Won then enters into a fake marriage with Swan (Moon Chae-Won) to hide his identity. Through the bright persona of Swan, Cha Ji-Won falls in love and regains his trust of others. – AsianWiki
This drama premieres on Wednesday, March 16th in South Korea and will have new episodes available each Wednesday/Thursday on the Viki app.
Stay tuned for my next Kdrama update coming next month.
