Obstetrics and Gynecology Doctors (korean drama)

The drama depicts the difficult decisions and moving human stories that take place daily in the OB-GYN department, focusing in particular on Seo Hye Young, a talented and determined obstetrician who has just transferred from the prestigious Seoul base to the branch hospital. Her straightforward manner of handling her professional life is in contrast with her love life, which is marred by her relationship with a married man. This becomes even more entangled when she meets Lee Sang Shik, the chief of NICU, and her long-time friend Wang Jae Suk also shows his interest.
This drama, as mentioned above, shows how it is in the ob-gyn department. I thought i had written about this earlier, but i can't seem to find it so i mustn't have written it. The different stories shown here, all with their own problems and situations, were so touching and heart rending.
I was awed by the miracles shown and also had my heart wrenched by the sadness and tough choices some had to make.
The characters were all so amazing and portrayed their roles fabulously. Seo Hye Young, especially, is such a strong woman and lady. Loved how her relationship with everyone, especially lee sang shik, progressed throughout the story. i only wished that i could have gotten to see more but the ending was satisfying nonetheless. a definite recommend from me. here's a short ost of the drama which i loved. enjoy!!!

Pretty Haru (manga/manhwa)

As children, Lee Haru and Yun Dong-Ha made a promise, one to become a famous baseball player, the other a ballerina. When Lee Haru departs for Russia, they both decide that when they meet again they'll become a couple.

Fast-foward several years, and Dong-Ha, now a feared deliquent, is excited to find out Lee-Haru is returning to his school. Expecting to meet a gorgeous, skinny ballerina, he is rather dismayed to find out Haru hasn't exactly turned out the way he expected.

It's been a long time since i last reviewed a manga or manhwa in this case. The art is ok, what we usually see of manhwas but it's the story that caught my attention. One can really make something with this kind of storyline and so i was interested to read it. It also helped that it was a short manhwa, 12 chapters to be exact as I wasn't in the mood for anything long.

It's a romantic comedy, and a light fluffy read. hehehe the characters are all so cute, even our 2 male leads. hehe both of them have their own charming points that you can't help rooting for both of them instead of just one. i'd say give this manga a go if you're in the mood for something light hearted and fun. enjoy!!!
