Faith

So for the past few months, I’ve been really into watching past Lee Min Ho dramas. After watching City Hunter last year, I thought that would be the only drama I ever watched of his because the role seemed to fit him so well. However, after I started watching Faith (his only period drama so far) I decided to check out some of his other past dramas.

1| Faith – A warrior (Lee Min Ho) from the Goreyo Period travels through a portal in time to find Heaven’s Doctor (Kim Hee-Seon) who is actually a doctor in Modern Day Korea. Love this drama, and definitely recommend it.

2| Boys Over Flowers – So I never thought I would watch a high school drama, but after reading the reviews, and since I’m watching Lee Min Ho’s earlier works, I decided to give it a try. Min Ho plays the leader of a group called F4 who rules a school for the wealthy. When Geum Jan-Di comes into his life, he doesn’t know what hit him.

3| Personal Taste – Since the dramas I’ve been watching lately have been more on the serious/dark side, I decided to add a little comedy to the mix. In this drama Lee Min Ho plays Jeon In Ho, an architect whose struggling firm is in the middle of a bidding war to design a art museum. When he runs into Park Gae-In (Son Ye-Jin) a furniture designer who has been unlucky in love, he moves into her home under false pretenses.

Recommended: Although I haven’t watched it yet, Lee Min Ho’s movie Gangnam Blues has been available on the DramaFever app and iTunes for awhile now.

She Was Pretty
She Was Pretty

4| She Was Pretty – This drama centers around two childhood sweethearts who reconnect with each other while working for a fashion magazine that’s on it’s last legs. Hwang Jung-Eum (playing Kim Hye-Jin) and Park Seo-Joon (as Ji Seo-Joon) previously starred in the drama Heal Me, Kill Me and have amazing chemistry in this drama. However, Choi Siwon shines as the second lead and brings a lot of comedy to the show.

Six Flying Dragons

5| Six Flying Dragons – This drama is about the six flying dragons who fight to bring and end to Goryeo and build a new country, Joseon. I’m quite enjoying the swordplay and martial arts in this one, as well as seeing Yoo Ah-In in another period drama.

The Village: Secret of Achiara
The Village: Secret of Achiara

6| The Village: Secret of Achiara – To say that this drama is filled with secrets is an understatement. I’m still not sure who is good or bad at this point, but the story continues to be intriguing. Moon Geun-Young plays a English teacher who travels to Achiara, a small town that has had no crime to speak of, but on her first day there she discovers a body.

Up Next…

With Song Joong Ki’s drama (Descendants of the Sun)  and Moon Chae Won’s return to Kdrama in (Goodbye Mr. Black) not coming out until 2016, I’m looking forward to these upcoming dramas.

10| D-Day – Still deciding on whether I want watch this one or not. I’ve read a few reviews, but it’s hard not to be flooded with spoilers when I go that route. This story centers around a group of doctors  who work to save the citizens of Seoul after it’s hit by a natural disaster.
