My Drama Update (April 2018)

Warning: The following post may contain spoilers. Read at your discretion!

Ashi Girl (2017)


Country: Japan
Starring: Kuroshima Yuina & Kentaro
Completed Episodes: 3
Rating: 2/5
Description: Hayakawa Yui is a high school girl with the skill of being able to sprint. Her brother, Takeru, who is a genius builds a time travelling machine. Yui is accidentally sent back to the Sengoku period where she is put to battle and must protect a young prince.

I only started this drama because of Kentaro. Sadly, I do not like this drama. Other than me not liking historical dramas in general, it is tedious, and I often find myself getting distracted while watching the show. Also, Yui’s unhealthy obsession with Tadakiyo and her lack of logical thinking exceedingly annoy me. There is a high chance that I may drop this drama. I do not think could get through all 12 episodes.

Age of Youth 2 (2017)


Country: South Korea
Starring: Han Ye Ri, Han Seung Yeon, Park Eun Bin, Ji Woo, Choi Ah Ra
Completed Episodes: 13
Rating: 4/5
Description: This is the sequel to “Age of Youth,” also known as “Hello My Twenties!” This drama showcases the hectic and romantic lives of five college students living in Belle Époque.

I love this drama! Coincidentally, I stumbled upon “Age of Youth” on Netflix. I loved the drama so much and binge-watched it in a couple of days. There is something to keep you interested in every episode! I will admit that the second season is not as good as the first season (sequels are rarely better than prequels), but it is still pretty good. I am currently watching the last episode! My only complaint is that I did not like the fact that they changed actresses for Yoo Eun Jae’s character. I understand the original actress, Park Hye Soo, had a scheduling conflict and was unable to film for the show. However, Ji Woo looks utterly different from Park Hye Soo. She also changed the personality and mannerisms of the character, which threw me off for the entire series. It would have been best to cut out her role from the show altogether.

Love in Trouble (2017)


Country: South Korea
Starring: Nam Ji Hyun & Ji Chang Wook
Completed Episodes: 39
Rating: 4/5
Description: Eun Bong Hee (Nam Ji Hyun) and Noh Ji Wook (Ji Chang Wook) work together as lawyers to solve various cases, including a case in which Eun Bong Hee was formerly the prime suspect.

I only have one more episode to watch for this series. This whole series has been a roller coaster ride, and I loved almost every minute of it. I am surprised that I got through the entire series. Even though each episode is only 30 minutes long, the series felt exceptionally long. Despite everything, I still find myself liking the antagonist of the show. He reminds me of BTS’s Park Jimin for some reason.

School 2017 (2017)


Country: South Korea
Starring: Kim Se Jung, Hyun Tae Woon & Jang Dong Yoon
Completed Episodes: 9
Rating: 3.5/5
Description: Gugudan’s Kim Se Jung plays the role of Ra Eun Ho, a low-ranking high schooler and an aspiring webtoon artist. This drama follows Ra Eun Ho as she deals with being marginalized in her school because of her low grades, lack of wealth, and being blamed for a crime that she did not commit.

I will confess. I was wrong about this series. While it is still my least favourite out of the “School” series, it is not terrible. As the series progressed, the plot began to make more sense. The series just had a really slow start. I no longer feel bored while watching it, and I admire Ra Eun Ho’s charisma. She is a strong-minded individual that stands up for what she believes in. She is not afraid to point out injustices in the school system and is ready to face the most influential individuals to instigate change. While I really want to ship Ra Eun Ho with lead male character, Hyun Tae Woon, it is a bit weird for me since in my mind she is still Gugudan’s and ex-I.O.I member, Kim Se Jung.
