New Dramas I'm Looking Forward To!

There's about 4 months left before the year is over and drama producers are getting super competitive. What I mean by competitive is the upcoming release for this year has a bunch of slick storyline and visuals. "W" is on top of my watch list after I'm done with my current set but the following are dramas are grabbing my attention with their interesting script and characters.

1. Moonlight Drawn By Clouds

Episodes: 18 Broadcasting: August 22, 2016 Run Time: Mon-Tues Starring: Park Bo-gum and Kim Yoo-jung Synopsis : Basically Hong Ra-On disguises herself as a man to give dating counsels and she becomes the crown prince's eunuch. Thoughts: I really enjoy watching coming of age romance dramas and even better if it's in historical setting. Kim Yoo-Jung has been a child actress for many dramas and particularly I enjoyed watching her in May Queen and the Moon Who Embraces the Sun. I'm super excited to see her taking a lead role as an adult, so it's a no-brainer must watch for me. Source: Asianwiki
Please excuse me but this video of Park Bo-gum dancing in hanbok has become my favorite video of the week.

2. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

Episodes: 20 Broadcasting: August 29, 2016 Run Time: Mon-Tues Synopsis: After a total eclipse of the sun, Hae-soo travels back in time to Goryeo era and falls in love with Wang So. Thoughts: To be honest, I didn't watch Bu Bu Jing Xing but I know people were raving about it. After finding out Lee Joon-Ki was casted for this remake I kept a closed eye on this drama. I don't know what's up with me and 'moon' and 'saeguks' but I can see this one is going to be in a tough competition with Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.
I'm not sure if IU and the rest of the cast's acting will be on-par but the visual game is no joke.

3. High 5 Basketball

To be fair this drama does not have an airing date confirmed yet. It's suppose to broadcast on November 2016. What caught my attention was the two leads and the topic basketball. The two leads are from Mandopop group SpeXial, Luo Hong Zheng and Simon Lian. I've seen snippets of Hong Zheng's acting in Moon River and it wasn't bad, so I'm looking forward to more news about the complete casting.
The new dramas will probably keep me occupied for the rest of the year. My list does keep getting longer and longer though. - the life of a drama-fanatic.

Anyone else excited for upcoming 2016 dramas?

Ooh me I really wanna see moon lovers and moonlight drawn by clouds!!!! I love historical dramas
Moonlight drawn by clouds is debuting this week, so i'm super excited!
so i love Park Bo-gum...and that video is seriously one of my favorite things.
I'm excited for Legend of the Blue Sea of course! Lee Min Ho is back!!! 💜
I'm more into T-drama these days, so I haven't really been on k-drama news sites. lol, I'm also not that into Lee Min Ho so I don't follow up with his news. But anyways, I also didn't know Jeon Ji Hyun is back. Didn't she just gave birth to a child?
@cindystran Yea that makes sense then, it's everywhere in the K-Drama news. I love Lee Min Ho, I don't know much about Jeon Ji Hyun, I'm not really a fan of her. I've only seen her in My Love From Another Star. I didn't hear that she had a child but it wouldnt surprise me.
I need to get back into the k-drama news land. I only hear about new k-dramas here but I guess it's not as detailed.
I'm excited for many dramams
me I want to see both of the historical dramas, I'm not sure about the sports one
Sports genre might not be everyone's cup of tea. Though, I have to say you can't really go wrong with historical dramas. Most of the ones I watched are average or above average!
yea I love historical dramas and supernatural ones too, (even better if combined lol) @cindystran

Everyone thinks Jun Woo is the culprit, and Hui Yeong useshis influence among his peers to fuel this rumor. Meanwhile, Soo Bin has been watching Jun Woo all this time.

[Before K-Drama] Boys Over Flowers!
It's time for another "Before K-Drama" where we talk about what dramas were originally (webtoon, manga, book, etc) I'm pretty sure you all have heard of this little drama: Boys Over Flowers: It is based on Japanese manga Hana Yori Dango (花より男子) written by Yoko Kamio. There have been Japanese, Taiwanese, Indian, and, of course, a Korean remake! Most of them have had not only drama versions but also full length films! (It's called Meteor Garden in Taiwanese!) The Korean version, "Boys Over Flowers," is usually people's first K-drama and if you haven't seen it then you've definitely heard of it t least once! (Also, I don't know why Jan-di's legs are cut off in this photo hahaha) I actually watched Hana Yori Dango (the Japanese remake) completely by accident! My parents were trying to get me my first ever Korean DVD for Christmas and sort of failed ;P But it ended up being a good thing! They thought they got me Boys Over Flowers, but they got me the movie version of Hana Yori Dango! And it was sooo good! (Like, cheesy Japanese drama good, so...hahah) I haven't watched the drama yet though :D I haven't seen Meteor Garden (the Taiwanese version) either even though this was the first drama version of the manga! Which of these have you seen or read!? and if you havent seen any... Tagging my "Before K-Drama" folks! @merryjayne13 @Yongsongmi @Kamiamon @CreeTheOtaku @chongx @RaquelArredondo @KellyOConnor @Msrayray95 @drummergirl691 @netchtiBates @Lizzeh @PamelaPenaloza @Priscilla @biancadanica98 @petname83 @JamiMilsap @juniholtgrewe @sosoaloraine23 @sherrysahar @KiraHitomi @TLeahEdwards @shananunezl1234 @IMNII @SarahIvester
Extraordinary You (Korean Drama Recommendation)
Episodes: 32 (35 Minute Episodes) Genre: Friendship, Comedy, Romance, School, Fantasy Other Genre Tags (listed on MDL): High School, Student, Adapted from a Webtoon, Coming of Age, Unrequited Love, Love Triangle, Rich Female Lead, Multiple Mains (Characters), Youth Romance, Rainbow, Webtoon World, Idol Actor Rating: 15 + Where to Watch: Viki Status: Currently Airing - October 2nd-November 21st, 2019 Main Cast: Ro Woon, Kim Hye Yoon, Lee Jae Wook, Lee Na Eun, Kim Young Dae, Jung Gun Joo, Lee Tae Ri Notes/Warnings: -There is bullying going on but this is mainly a comedy, there are still some deep meaningful situations though. (I mean so far, there's only 4 episodes out so far...XD) Synopsis: What would you do if you found out that you were, in fact, a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously! Eun Dan Oh is a 17-year-old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Dan Oh realizes she is experiencing longgaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see. (Source: onehallyu, MDL) My Remarks: It's really good so far! If you liked the drama W you'd like this one most likely. They both have a similar concept. Except W had a serial killer in it...this one does not, or at least if it does it hasn't yet.

Remembrance Sulli (JinRi)
Many of you may know Sulli as one of the girls in f(x) or friends with Amber or even off some Drama's . She has always as been her own individual and tried to get through the tough patches on her own. She has dealt with so many comments and hate messages that vary in aspects. There is actually a show called "Night of Hate Comments" Sulli and 3 others Stars invite others in the business to talk about their experience with Cyber Bullying. One of the reasons I bring in this show is because with her background it was to help show she wasnt alone in receiving this treatment and able to share her experience and well as hear others who can relate. . . If You have seen the news then you know what has happened to this young vibrant girl. - ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~ This next bit may be a triggering and please be warned, this does have to do with a death. . ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ Monday Morning her manager could not get ahold of her so went to her apartment to check up on her. the Manager found her and called the police. Police are going to look further into it but at this time it was released there was a suicide note and that she had taken her life. Fam tag!

4 Taiwanese Dramas Remade into Korean
I was talking to @cindystran recently about how I've only seen one Taiwanese drama ever, but it looks like I'll have to dive into that world soon! Check out these 4 Taiwanese drama that have Korean counterparts! 1. Fated to Love You Taiwanese version: Starring Joe Chen and Ethan Juan. This Taiwanese drama came out in 2008, and it broke rating records. Korean version: Starring Jang Na Ra, Jang Hyuk and Choi Jin Hyuk. The series reunited Jang Hyuk and Jang Na Ra. Plot: Making a mistake after having way too many drinks can change everything. Lee Gun is the successor to a large company run by his family. Kim Mi Young is an average-looking secretary in a law firm who earned the nickname “Post-It” for her inability to say no to her colleagues who dump work on her. When the two cross paths one night after having too much to drink, they end up having a one-night stand. When Mi Young finds out afterwards that she is pregnant, what will become of them? 2. My Queen Taiwanese version: starring Ethan Juan and Cheryl Yang. And it was awarded the Best Channel Advertising at the 44th Golden Bell Awards. Korean version: named "Witch's Romance". starring Uhm Jung Hwa and Park Seo Joon. Plot: Two hard working people who have lost love in their lives meet and despite the age difference, they find a lot in common with each other, including their scarred hearts. 3. In Time With You Taiwanese version: Starring Ariel Lin, Chen Bolin and Sunny Wang. "Li Daren" probably will be the most ideal prince in every girl's dream. Korean version: The name of this Korean drama will is The Time We Were Not In Love with Ha Ji Won and Lee Jin Wook . Plot: Oh Ha-Na and Choi Won are both 34-years-old. They have been friends for 17 years. Oh Ha-Na is currently a career woman with an honest and confident personality. Choi Won works as an assistant purser for an airline. He has always helped Oh Ha-Na whenever she got into trouble. Will Oh Ha-Na and Choi Won find love? 4. Absolute Boyfriend Taiwanese version: Starring Jiro Wang and Gu Hye Sun. Consider how cute and pretty this couple is; you don't want to miss it. Its about an adorable girl who is consistently seeking for love but always has a lack of luck...so she has one custom made. Korean version: There have been rumors about Absolute Boyfriend being remade into a Korean drama for a really long time. There is a Japanese version though!!! Plot: Riiko Izawa has never had a boyfriend and she has been rejected by every boy she has ever had a crush on. When she returns a lost cell phone to an oddly dressed salesman, she mentions wanting a boyfriend. To thank her, he directs her to his company's website, Kronos Heaven. When she visits the site, Riiko finds it's a site to create your perfect lover. Thinking it's a game, she customizes and accidentally orders one. The next day, her new lover arrives.
