Queen For Seven Days is a story of love between a lady called Shin Chae Kyung and her prince. Their love in this drama is so achingly sweet, and yet devastatingly sad. 😍😭 This fiction sageuk drama is based on a true story, which makes it even more heartfelt. Their real-life love story (mostly folklore) can be found in the net (in Hangul).
From day one, Queen For Seven Days is known as a drama with tragic love story. And those who know the real story, will also know why. I signed into this drama knowing for sure I will cry my heart out like what I did in Uncontrollably Fond and Oh My Geum Bi. And what I can tell you is, ALL those that watched this drama ended up crying along the journey and particularly at the end. Crying doesn’t mean weak. For this drama, crying means celebrating their sweet beautiful love until the end of time. Although the drama is not 100% true to history, for us living in 2017, getting to know their love story that happened over 500 years ago means their love stood the test of time. For that, I’m in awe!
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is a coming of age fusion sageuk drama serving cute romance as its main dish, friendship and growing-up as the close banchan (sides) and political issues as the garnishes. Its success is a MAJOR MAJOR surprise to everyone! Who would have thought this historical drama helm by 5 main casts under the age of 25 can beat out its competitor (I’m sure you know who). Certainly not me.
Tsk: Moonlight Drawn By Clouds concluded a week plus ago and since then I’ve been having a tough withdrawal. Didn’t know I will be feeling this way. To calm my soul, I’ve been following their news from fan sign event to wrap party to their Cebu vacation and now reading their post-drama interviews. I know I need to finish this review to give it a good closure. Certainly my love for this drama will go on forever! (or until another good one replaces it)
Descendants Of The Sun is a military-medical romance-melodrama that shook the Korean drama world recently in terms of ratings and popularity.
So have you watch Descendants Of The Sun (DOTS)? Are you a fan of Descendants Of The Sun?
Before we move on, just so you know that this post contains spoiler. So please don’t continue on if you have yet to watch DOTS. At the bottom of this post, I have set up a poll and Q&A session for DOTS fanatic (and non-fanatic).
I’m currently diggin’ Healer. Who’s with me?
I went into this drama without any expectation. I knew it would be good because Song Ji Na wrote it but I didn’t expect it would be THIS good (two thumbs up). Who’s Song Ji Na? She’s the brilliant Korean writer that wrote Sandglass and my favorite Faith drama.
I’ve seen Ji Chang Wook previously in Smile Again – not really impressed with his acting there and am not really a fan of Park Min Young. While I’ve never watched any of Yoo Ji Tae dramas. BUT right now I’m really loving the three of them. They make a very nice trio.
So there’s Eric Moon and then there’s Jung Yu Mi. Both are my favorites. How could I not watch Discovery of Love? You tell me. I first saw Eric’s acting in the ill-fated Spy MyeongWol and then the interesting Zorro-like Chilwu, The Mighty. This guy is hot I tell you. As for Jung Yu Mi, I first saw her in The Queen Of Office and then I Need Romance 2. She did so great in The Queen Of Office that she immediately became my favorite.
Full Sun is known as 태양은 가득히 (taeyangeun gadeukgi) or Beyond the Clouds. Beyond the clouds there is a silver lining. 🙂
I didn’t bother at all with Full Sun when it started as I didn’t know the two leads (Yoon Kye Sang and Han Ji Hye). I haven’t seen them acted before. Then WHAM BAM… just first episode and I already love them to death. The drama ended with me being heavily invested in it.
