[Kdrama] ‘The Village: Achiara’ ep 1&2 ~ first impression/ opinion/review ~

This post will be rather short because a show that has potential isn’t doing much for me, that’s pretty much my opinion on Achiara. In a way they have everything, the acting is okay, the plot is something that may draw the viewers in, production looks alright but will all this I’m just not feeling […]

[Kdrama] ‘She was pretty’ ep 10&11 ~ impression/ opinion/review ~

“When we try to admit our lies and tell the truth we end up hesitating from lack of courage. And that long hesitation, in one moment, makes it impossible for you to have the courage to tell the truth.” Well, show I’m going to reveal the truth: I’m feed up with you! Especially with the […]

[Jdrama] ‘Siren!’ episode 1 ~ first impression/ opinion/review ~

At first, the drama may look like nothing much and pretty cheap. Actually the production looks like it doesn’t have potential but watching the first episode, Siren can be a gem. The acting isn’t exceptional, but still okay. Normally, Japanese actors tend to exaggerate a lot with the facial ‘acting’ but the actors in Siren […]

[Kdrama] ‘Cheer Up!’ ep 5&6 ~ impression/ opinion/review ~

I’m starting to understand why ‘Cheer up’ has such low ratings. I like the drama but in a way, they are pushing things too much for a drama that was supposed to show high school in a brighter way, or at least that’s what they were telling from the trailers. No matter what actors they […]

[Kdrama] ‘Twenty Again’ ep 1-16 [END] ~ review/impression/opinion~

A story about a 36 years old housewife who goes back to school, sprinkled with high school crush and a cheating husband? Well, that seems like a fun ride…. or maybe a little predictable yet still fun. ‘Twenty again’ seems like a generic Korean drama story that has the topics loved by Korean viewers but […]

[Kdrama] ‘She was pretty’ episode 9 ~ impression/ opinion/review ~

A makeover! Of course, that’s what Korea dramas are all about, makeovers. However rather than taking it as a makeover, I want to think of it as a new start for Hye Jin. A start where she thinks about herself more and won’t get hurt by others because of her appearance. Luckily, Hye Jin always […]

[Kdrama] ‘Cheer Up!’ ep 3&4 ~ impression/ opinion/review ~

A drama that has the name Cheer Up is for sure not that cheerful. From high scholars put under pressure by their parents to the point of wanting to take their own life to the ones with trauma that affects their lives without adults noticing it. That’s a lot going on but kind of expected […]

[Kdrama] ‘She was pretty’ ep 5-8 ~ impression/ opinion/review ~

It’s so sad when I love a drama but the writer forgets the main purpose of its work. Other than having actors I like, a major appeal and what actually draws me to the drama is the idea behind the plot. For once I was thinking that the writer will continue the message of ‘inner […]

[Kdrama] ‘Cheer Up!’ ep1&2 ~ first impression/ opinion/review ~

I found my new Mon-Tue drama. Ever since ‘I remember you’ ended, I had nothing to fill my beginning of the week with; I tried ‘Eccentric daughter in law’ but it wasn’t my cut of tea so I gave up on it. However I do give it to KBS for always trying new stuff/plots even […]

[Kdrama] ‘D-Day’ episodes 1-5 ~ first impression/ opinion/review ~

Since the very first episode, D-day turned out to be a great watch, a drama that kept me wanting for more. Story-wise it’s a hard thing to digest and definitely not for anyone. For example, I live in a country with many epicentral zones so a drama that focuses on something like earthquakes is hard […]
