2 New K-Drama Recommendations
Here are two drama's I've recently started that I highly recommend! The King: Eternal Monarch Main Cast: Lee Min Ho, Kim Go Eun, Woo Do Hwan, Kim Kyung Nam, Jung Eun Chae, Lee Jung Jin Episodes: 16 (1 Hour Episodes, though some are longer) - Currently Airing Rating: 15+ Genre: Romance, Historical (A more Modernized Historical), Drama, Sci-Fi, Fantasy Other Major Tags: Parallel Universes Synopsis: Yi Gon is the third Korean emperor of his generation. His citizens regard him as the perfect leader. But behind this flawless appearance, hides a deep wound. When he was eight years old, his father was murdered before his eyes following a coup. Today, instead of respecting his filial duty, he prefers to escape the palace to attend university conferences. During one of his escapades, he sees himself propelled into a parallel world where he meets Jung Tae Eul, an inspector with whom he teams up with to defeat the criminals but also close the door between their two worlds.

I really like dramas where one actor plays multiple roles (ex. Duel with Yang Sejong) and this drama has exactly that and two Woo Dohwan's? How can one not love this drama?! Though I'm probably biased as he's my favorite Korean Actor. My Holo Love Main Cast: Yoon Hyun Min, Go Sung Hee Episodes: 12 (1 Hour Episodes) - Completed Rating: 13+ Genre: Romance, Drama, Sci-Fi, Melodrama Other Major Tags: Prosopagnosia, Artificial Intelligence, Hologram Synopsis: “My Holo Love” is about the events that occur when a lonely woman meets the artificially intelligent “Holo.” The drama is filled with stories of heartbreaking loneliness and tear-stained love. Go Nan Do is the owner of an IT research company. As a genius inventor, he started the company, and all projects were created through his hands. However, the only people who are aware of his existence are his stepsister and the official CEO. He was a hacker in a major case 10 years ago and supposedly died while being pursued. Han So Yeon is an assistant manager at a glasses company. Whether it is working on brand marketing or the logistics of the launching party for the company’s flagship store, she shoulders on her work and stays ahead of the industry’s trends. She meticulously takes care of her clients and her work. However, when it comes to her personal life, she keeps her distance as she suffers from prosopagnosia, the inability to recognize faces. (Source: Soompi) My Thoughts: I'm two episodes in this one and I know it aired a while back (in February) but I was sort of in a slump for kdramas at that time. So, I started it and I like it! As mentioned above I am a sucker for an actor playing multiple roles and Yoon Hyunmin does just that by playing Holo and Nando. I definitely recommend checking this one out! I am curious to see if prosopagnosia plays a bigger role than it has in this drama. The last time I saw it was in The Beauty Inside and I liked that drama, it was cute! - Also is anyone watching Memorist right now? It's my current favorite drama that's airing right now. It's so good!! - See my last K-drama recommendations below: Memorist & Arthdal Chronicles Rugal & 365: Repeat the Year The World of the Married & Find Me in Your Memory - Asian Drama/Movie Taglist: @KendraReeve @travelloveskin @MelissaGarza @KpopIsPleasing @LostMage @2ilVer @LinnyOk @rocklvr @VeronicaArtino @Just2BLoved @Kyla05 If you'd like to be tagged in any of my Asian drama/actor stuff please let me know!
