It’s been a little while since I shared about the Kdramas that I’m currently loving… So here’s 7 Dramas that you should be watching.
These first three dramas are already off the air, so you can binge watch them from beginning to end without the agony of waiting. (American shows normally have a cliffhanger at the end of each season, while Kdramas have cliffhangers at the end of each episode that makes you wish for the next week to hurry up and get here already.)
This drama was just premiering when I did my last round of Kdrama recommendations. Let me just say, if you’re looking for a happy series, don’t watch this one… but if you’re looking for a tragically beautiful series that will make you fall for the lead character (Kim Woo Bin) this is definitely one to watch.
Let’s Fight Ghost
So this one is definitely one of your ‘darker’ dramas, but I still recommend it. The relationship between these two has such cute moments intermixed between all the obvious drama. This is the first drama I’ve watched with TaecYeon (the main male lead) but I’ve seen several of Kim So-Hyun’s dramas where she’s played the younger version of the main female leads. (I Miss You, Triangle, Rooftop Prince.)
W Two Worlds
So I really didn’t know what to expect with this drama. It involved two worlds, the real Seoul and the comic book version of Seoul dreamed up by the female leads father. The first half of the series had you completely hooked, and the second half got a bit messy at times, but still kept me watching. Definitely give this one a shot if you want to see some excellent chemistry between the two leads Han Hyo-Joo (Always, Postman to Heaven, Brilliant Legacy) and Lee Jong-Suk (Doctor Stranger, Pinocchio, I Can Hear Your Voice.)
Now for our currently airing dramas…
Moon Lovers – Scarlet Heart Ryeo
I have to admit the main draw for watching this drama was Lee Joon Gi. He’s such dynamic actor who really makes you develop an emotional bond with whatever character he happens to play. This drama is about a girl (IU) from the present day who finds herself transported back into Goreyo (ancient Joseon) where the eight sons of King Taejo fight for their right to the throne.
The main issue that I’m having with this drama is the RAW version and the Subbed version differ b/c scenes end up getting cut in the Subbed version. So I’d recommend watching the RAW version if you don’t want to end up missing something (even if your knowledge of the Korean language is limited… you’ll still get the idea.)
I’m loving Kong Hyo Jin’s latest drama. She plays a weather forecaster who dreams of becoming a new anchor. For three years she’s been in love with Lee Hwa-Shin (Cho Jung-Seok… the guy on the right) but she’s currently finding love with his best friend (Ko Gyung-Pyo… guy on the left.) Hyo-Jin’s character also knows a secret that Lee Hwa-Shin is keeping from everyone at the news network, but I have a feeling that secret and another one that could tear apart a long friendship is about to be revealed.
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds
Yes, I’m watching two period dramas at once. I’m very selective about the period dramas that I watch, mostly because the whole back stabbing political stuff gets really boring for me and I find myself fast forwarding to get to the ‘good parts.’
Hong Ra-On disguises herself as a man and counsels men on dating. Due to a love letter she wrote for a client, she meets Crown Prince Hyomyeong (Park Bo-Gum). Hong Ra-On is unaware that he is the Crown Prince and Hyomyeong is unaware that Hong Ra-On is a woman. The Crown Prince becomes interested in Hong Ra-On. His eunuchs become aware of this and attempt to get Hong Ra-On to become one of them. – AsianWiki
I’m finally in the episodes where the Crown Prince has figured out that Hong Ra-On is a girl, but there’s a whole other, much larger secret that is still yet to be revealed. Things could get ‘interesting’ really fast.
I haven’t even finished the premiere of this drama yet, but I have a feeling that it’s going to be seriously intriguing. According to reports it will be Ji Chang-Wook’s last action drama. (Not sure how I feel about that, he was seriously amazing in Healer!)
Kim Je-Ha (Ji Chang-Wook) is former solider for hire. He is also called K2. He is hired as a bodyguard by Choi Yoo-Jin (Song Yoon-A). Choi Yoo-Jin is the wife of a presidential candidate (Cho Seong-Ha) and the daughter from a chaebol family. Meanwhile, Ko An-Na (Yoona) is the secret daughter of the presidential hopeful. She is also a recluse. – AsianWiki
