Currently Watching Dramas (November 2015)
Starring: Ahn Jae Hyun and Goo Hye Sun
Episodes seen: 13
Notes: Honestly, I do not know why I am still putting up with this drama. I complain about it all the time, but still watch it. I guess I am determined to not add this to my “dropped” list along with “Playful Kiss” and “My Lovely Girl”. At least I am more than halfway through the series. The only thing that is getting me through this drama is Hyun Woo and Luvvy.
Starring: Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young
Episodes seen: 13
Notes: This is another drama that I have been struggling with for a while. It is being to get really interesting at this late stage. The lead female character, Chae Young, still annoys me. The action, mystery and drama in the plot keep me hooked.
Orange Marmalade (2015)
Starring: Yeo Jin Goo and Seol Hyun
Episodes seen: 9
Notes: I was annoyed and did not understand why the drama randomly switched to the Joseon era. I am not a fan of historical dramas. I finally understood why this happened at the end of the last episode I watched, but I still found it annoying and unnecessary. Maybe, they could have done it differently and not leave me irritated and bewildered for half the series.
She Was Pretty (2015)
Starring: Park Seo Joon and Hwang Jung Eum
Episodes seen: 11
Notes: I started this drama this weekend and I am already more than halfway through. I love this drama! The plot has a Cinderella concept, but with a modern and K-drama styled twist. Soon as I started the drama, I was hooked. I have not gotten much schoolwork done, which is bad since finals begin this week. As usual, the lead female annoys me a bit. I think it is because I dislike seeing “weak” and “helpless” lead female characters. I am not a feminist, but I prefer strong-minded and independent female leads. I do not really like seeing females losing all control over males. That’s just how I am.
Can I also add that this drama made me fall in love with Siwon? He has not been at the top of my favourites list in Super Junior recently, but his zany and crazy antics in this drama made me fall for him. Too bad I only started feeling this way after he just left for his military service.
