Those of you who have been following the blog for awhile know that I really enjoy watching Korean Drama’s. They are not only really enjoyable, entertaining, (force you experience emotions on every end of the spectrum,) but they are also an excellent way to learn to the Korean language.
Since it’s been a little while, I thought I’d share some of the dramas I’ve recently watched, ones I’m watching now, along with a few upcoming dramas that I can’t wait to get started on.
This time travel drama had me on the edge of my seat. It stars Yoo In-Na who I watched most recently in My Secret Hotel (If you’re into murder mysteries, you’ll want to check that one out.) and Ji Hyun- Woo. Yoo In-Na’s character is in a television show where she plays Queen In Hyun (obviously) and Ji Hyun-Woo is a Joseon era scholar who while fighting to get the Queen back in her rightly place, finds himself transported through time.
This drama stars Park Yoo-Chun and Shin Se-Kyung who find themselves connected by tragedy from the begin of the show. Later Yoo-Chun’s character becomes a police detective determined to find the serial killer who murdered his sister along with Shin Se-Kyung’s parents. Both of the main characters must use their unique talents to help the rest of the team bring a killer to justice.
Fact: Fashion King, the first Kdrama I ever watched (back in 2012,) starred Shin Se-Kyung.
Kang Min-Ho (Jung Kyoung-Ho) is driven by revenge. After his father was forced out of the company he created, Min-Ho became determined to bring his uncle (who conned his way into the CEO position) down. What he didn’t count on was meeting Soon Jung.
This drama came out in 2009, and was one of the most expensive KDrama’s ever produced. It’s been on my lists of dramas to watch for awhile, and after I watched Lee Byung-Hun in Red 2, I knew I needed to watch this one. It’s a spy drama (my favorite genre) and there’s plenty of action and intrigue to go around. You’ll be on the edge of your seat throughout this drama and constantly wondering who with the ‘good guys’ and who isn’t.
I couldn’t have been more excited about the latest drama by the Hong Sisters. I really enjoyed their last drama The Master’s Sun starring So Ji-Sub and Kong Hyo-Jin (one of my most favorite on screen couples.) So Ji-Sub also has a cameo in the first episode of this new show.
This drama centers around Baek Gun-Woo (Yoo Yeon-Seok) and Lee Jung-Joo (Kang So-Ra.) Baek Gun-Woo owns a restaurant on Jeju Island and comes from a family where everything was handed to him, Lee Jung-Joo is the polar opposite. Both are trying to make the restaurant work for very different reasons.
A drama within a drama. This new Kdrama revolves around the lives of a group of producers at a broadcast station. Looking forward to seeing both Kim Soo-Hyun and Kong Hyo-Jin in their latest drama.
Joo Sang-Wook plays a prosecutor who dons a mask by night to deal with the criminals that weren’t brought to justice through the legal system. Should be fun to watch.
When a film company decides to make a film based on a popular webcomic, a young producer is faced with her past.
