I Love Lee Tae Ri (korean drama)

Min Soo is a 14-year-old boy who is engaged to a woman 7 years older than him. As he knows that the woman likes another man, he makes a wish so that he can protect his love. As the result of his wish, he becomes a 25-year-old man. Tae Ri is a well-educated woman who comes from a wealthy family. After being hurt by her first love, she doesn't believe in love anymore. But, as Min Soo suddenly appears before her, she starts to have feelings for him...
When I first started watching this, I thought it was quite an old or rather, not really a new drama, because of the quality i have to admit. but while browsing through the internet one day, i saw one of the advertisements showing a featured drama, and it seemed to be this particular title.
i immediately went to check it out and oh lordie, this was actually a really new drama. yea i know, being old or new doesn't really make much difference, so long as the drama is good.
but it definitely does, when you are really enjoying the drama, and you can't watch it in one shot, instead having to keep waiting for updates. man, that totally sucks. but fortunately, this drama was nearly complete so i didn't have to wait long and it was worth it too.
loved the drama, it had bits of fantasy with the kid growing up to be an adult. usually when we see so much of a difference between our characters, there's this feeling that oh she's too old or he's too young, but that wasn't the case for this.
although there was a difference, they pulled it off nicely, and tae ri was such a refreshing character. she was surprisingly innocent and showed really great expressions. both of them looked really good together in my opinion although i read some posts where they felt the age gap but it was not so for me.
i could see the adoration the male lead had for tae ri and vice versa. theirs was such a sweet and innocent love. for me, i felt that they had done more with the ending although it was a good end. but i guess i just wanted to see a hug after such a long reunion hehehe but i guess everyone has different feelings and ideas.

Queen Inhyun's Man (korean drama)

Kim Boong Do is a scholar who had supported the reinstatement of Queen In Hyun when Jang heebin's schemes resulted in her being deposed and replaced as King Sukjong's queen consort. He travels 300 years into the future of modern Seoul and meets Choi Hee Jin, a no-name actress who is expecting a career renaissance through her role as Queen In Hyun in a TV drama.
this is one of those dramas that made me keep wanting for me, that made me wish that it was longer. even now, i'm still reeling from the after effects of the drama, i keep missing it and always listen to its osts, which are fabulous as well. i have 2 personal favourites which i'm sharing below,
there was so much chemistry, the plot moved forward so fluently, i even felt like oh yea, this is all possible if you just believe. it was so touching and till the end, it made me wonder how this show is going to end, there were still twists even till the end, my heart was literally coming out of mouth. i had to close my mouth and breathe deeply to put it back.
i loved how our male lead was so clever and witty while our female lead was more of a clutz and ditzy but still very lovable despite that. it didn't feel annoying at all. she portrayed her sad roles so well, it was so painful to watch, her crying was so sad and touching. our male lead expressed his emotions wonderfully too without much words.
sighhhhh and oh boy, did i swoon, you can say i'm now a fan of this actor after this series and you can be sure that i'll be checking out some of his shows which i feel i might enjoy hehehe
from my earlier posts, you will know that all my drama recommendations are all complete, with english subs, so it's the same for this, hope you enjoy!!! a side note, loved this 2 osts, enjoy!!!

Rooftop Prince (korean drama)

When Crown Prince Lee Gak is transported 300 years into the future to present day Seoul along with his three retainers, they believe that it is their duty to solve the murder case of the Crown Princess in order to return to Joseon.
They land in the rooftop apartment of Park Ha, a cheerful woman in her mid-20s, who eventually believes the odd quartet's predicament and becomes their guardian.
As Park Ha educates the four on life in the 21st century, Lee Gak comes across Hong Se Na, who seems to be the reincarnation of his wife.
Taking on the identity of Yong Tae Yong, Lee Gak slowly begins to unravel the murder of Yong Tae Yong and in turn moves closer to solving the murder case of the Crown Princess.
As he finds himself in love with Park Ha, he figures that maybe the Crown Princess was not so perfect after all...
i haven't watched such a cute, fluffy drama in a long time seriously and this was one of those that made me keep grinning throughout the show. but it was really sad as well. although i felt that maybe the ending might have been better, but since i'm just enjoying myself, i made do with my own deductions and made myself happy with my own thoughts hehehe enjoy !!!

Queen of Reversals (korean drama)

Hwang Tae Hee is the daughter of a chaebol and team leader at her workplace. She is married to Bong Joon Soo who works at the same company. When Bong Joon Soo's ex-girlfriend, Baek Yeo Jin, who happens to be Hwang Tae Hee's rival as well, begins to work in her team, troubles start to surface. Tae Hee has to juggle her challenges in love with those in work, helping shape her boss and department director, Goo Yong Shik, from an insensitive and uninterested second generation chaebol to a true leader. Tae Hee's seeming success in love, however, presents her with another problem as she begins to realize that marriage involves just as many obstacles to overcome. has been some time since i finished watching this and i didn't write about it immediately because i was busy starting to watch other dramas that had  caught my eye. i was in k drama land then. even now, as i'm writing this i'm still watching something, it's just that i've paused it for now. in fact, after watching this show, i completed another 2 dramas and am in the midst of almost completing this show right now. thus my delay in writing about these wonderful dramas that i've watched and enjoyed. i bet there'll be a gap after some time again though.
as the description goes, this drama is more of office love and all, but it managed to get my attention throughout the whole series, i especially loveed yong shik's love for tae hee, and somehow, instead of hating joon soo, i actually felt for him at times. even baek yeo jin made me think twice about her and i definitely liked her in the second half of the show. i even hoped that she'd be with that police man guy,(he was quite confident and arrogant) but she did love joon soo so there were mixed feelings. but all in all, it was a wonderful show that made me swoon when i saw tae hee and yong shik together. hehehe well enjoy, you can just google this and you'll find links to the show. it's all complete and online, with english subs.
