2 New K-Drama Recommendations

Here are two drama's I've recently started that I highly recommend!

[The World of the Married]

Main Cast: Kim Hee Ae, Park Hae Joon, Han So Hee
Episodes: 16 (1 Hour Episodes, though some are longer) - Currently Airing
Rating: 15+ (19+ in South Korea)
Genre: Romance, Family, Melodrama, Drama
Other Major Tags: Revenge, Infidelity, Doctor, Western Remake
Synopsis:
Ji Sun Woo is a family medicine doctor. She is married to Lee Tae Oh and they have a son. She seems to have everything, including a successful career and a happy family, but she is betrayed by her husband and others. Meanwhile, Lee Tae Oh dreams of becoming a famous movie director. He runs an entertainment business with the support of his wife Ji Sun Woo. Even though he loves his wife, Lee Tae Oh falls into a dangerous relationship.

My Thoughts:
I am only 15 minutes into the first episode and so far it is good. I decided to start watching this drama because Kim Doyoung (of NCT) recommended it. I would like to note that this drama is not for a younger audience as their are mature scenes. (In fact there was a mature scene in the first 15 minutes.) I ALSO want to say that this is one of the top dramas in Korea right now. It is currently the 3rd highest rated drama in Korean cable TV history beating out POPULAR titles such as Goblin, Reply 1988, Signal, Itaewon Class, and Hotel Del Luna.

[Find Me in Your Memory]

Main Cast: Moon Ga Young, Kim Dong Wook
Episodes: 32 (30 minute episodes) - Currently Airing
Rating: 15+
Genre: Romance, Melodrama, Drama
Other Major Tags: Hyperthymesia, Memory-loss, Trauma, (Tragedy could probably be added in my opinion), Comedy, (Mytsery could also be added in my opinion)
Synopsis:
A love story between a man who remembers every second of his life and a woman who forgot her painful past.
(Source: Wikipedia)

My Thoughts:
I am 6 episodes in and its really good so far. Everything is happening at a slow pace right now but I think that's for a reason, it makes it more impactful. I think it's interesting to see Hyperthymesia in this drama because the last time I saw it was in Remember: War of the Son with Yoo Seung Ho and he used his extraordinary memory to solve his father's murder but it came with a price. It's interesting to see Kim Dong Wook's character live a more or less normal life compared to Yoo Seung Ho's. And each episode makes you wonder what will happen next because of the two's past. I definitely recommend checking it out!

Drama Reaction~
Hey guys! Your girl is back again except this time we are going to talk about dramas. (FYI the order has nothing to do with ranking.) Drama: Boys over Flowers Genre: Teen, Romance, School Plot: Set at a famous high school for the super-wealthy, this is a puppy love story centered on a poor girl and the F4 gang of rich kids headed by the rough and fearless Jun-pyo Koo. Geum Jan-Di (Hye-seon Ku) is a girl from a poor family but has an unrivaled sense of optimism and drive and is by chance admitted to a prestigious private high school. There she meets the infamous group of four astonishingly good looking and rich boys who are known as F4. The group's leader is Koo Jun-Pyo (Min-ho Lee), who is a spoiled heir to world-leading conglomerate Shinhwa. He is joined by mysterious and breathlessly handsome Yun Ji-Hu (Hyeon-jung Kim), So Lee-Jeong (Kim Beom), and Song Woo-Bin (Kim Jun). Their love story moves from Seoul to New Caledonia to Macau. Source: http://asianwiki.com/Boys_Over_Flowers_-_Korean_Drama Thoughts: Honeslty this drama was amazing. It had a TON of laughing scenes and was able to show the true struggles of being in a rich to poor relationship. Although, I did hate his Koo Jun-Pyo's mother and his attitude towards the end (even though he did it in order to help her). TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY NEWBIE TO KDRAMA. Drama: Cheese in the Trap Genre: Teen, Romance Plot: Drama depicts the delicate relationship between female university student Hong Seol (Kim Go-Eun) and her senior Yoo Jung (Park Hae-Jin). Hong-Seol works part-time due to her family's poor background. Yoo Jung is good looking, gets good grades, athletic and has a kind personality, but he has a dark side. Source: http://asianwiki.com/Cheese_in_the_Trap Thoughts: Okay this drama was complicated but, you still need to watch it in order to understand what Im saying. Personally, I thought that the ending to this drama was awful and sorta wanted more from it. Although, in the middle of the drama I remember there were some issues between the webtoon artist and the producer for the show... so I guess thats why the drama ended the way it did... but dont take my word for it. lol Dispite that I think the drama was good and I think Lee Sung-Kyung did an amazing job in acting as Baek In- Ha. Drama: Coffee Prince Genre: Romance, Drama, Comedy Plot: Coffee Prince’s Flagship Store is a TV series that revolves around the love life and dreams of four young people who meet together at a cafe. Han-gyeol (Gong Yoo) is a smart young man who hates to be tied down to one career in his life. Abhorring the idea of joining the family business, he is ordered by his grandmother to manage a cafe. Unable to disobey his grandmother, he reluctantly takes over the responsibility of running a cafe and begins to immerse himself in the gourmet coffee business. One day, he meets Eun-chan, a cheerful girl who has an unpredictable personality, and learns the meaning of true love.. Source: http://asianwiki.com/Coffee_Prince Thoughts: (the first drama I watched coming into kdrama) ALL TIME FAVORITE!!!!! This drama was a cute innocent love that has a funny plot twist in the middle. Honestly, Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun- Hye make a cute couple and they show it throughout the episodes. Furthermore, the ending to this show is so cute and honeslty I sort of wish they made a season 2 so we could see what their future will bring. THIS WOULD TOTALLY BE THE BEST DRAMA FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING INTO KDRAMA!!!!~~ Drama: The Heirs Genre: Romance, Teen, School Plot: "The Heirs" depicts the friendships, rivalries and love lives of young, rich heirs led by Kim Tan (Lee Min-Ho) and a girl named Cha Eun-Sang (Park Shin-Hye). Unlike the others, Cha Eun-Sang is considered ordinary and comes from a poor background. 18-year-old Cha Eun-Sang lives with her mother who is mute. Her mother works as a housekeeper and Eun-Sang also works part-time jobs to help out. One day, Eun-Sang's older sister (Yoon Jin-Seo) calls from the U.S. and informs them that she will marry. Eun-Sang's mother then asks Eun-Sang to send her older sister some money from her savings account. Eun-Sang isn't happy with her situation and decides to go to the U.S. herself to see if she can start a better life with her sister. When Eun-Sang arrives in California she is in for a shock. Her older sister lives in a filthy home with a deadbeat boyfriend who seems violent. Her sister is also not getting married or going to school and works full-time as a waitress. When Eun-Sang finally tracks down her sister working at a beach front restaurant, she takes the money Eun-Sang brought for her wedding and leaves without even saying goodbye. Eun-Sang's dreams of starting a better life in America quickly vanishes and she crumbles to the ground in tears. Meanwhile, Kim Tan is not your typical high school student, but a handsome and wealthy Korean heir to a large conglomeration. He is sitting out on the patio of the beach front restaurant, watching everything unfold between Eun-Sang and her sister. Kim Tan's American friend then sees a ziplock bag with a powdery substance fall out of Eun-Sang's suitcase and runs over to scoop it up. Kim Tan knows immediately that the ziplock bag doesn't contain drugs, but rather powder grain to make traditional Korean drinks. Soon, Eun-Sang runs off after Kim Tan's friend and Kim Tan goes to help Eun-Sang. When the dust is settled, Eun-Sang walks out of a police station and her passport is temporarily confiscated. With nowhere to go for Eun-Sang, Kim Tan offers to let her stay at his home. Although they seem to come from different worlds, they quickly develop a rapport for each other.

WRONG! This drama adds more content and issues to this drama that makes it unpredictable.
