Moving : An Unusually Great Series

I was not in the beginning keen to start watching Moving given what I read that it is about super power teenagers versus Governments. I am a Marvel addict through and through, but even then sometime I want a bit of pause from its bombardment. Aside from Jo In Sung, the rest is not names I have in my mindso not until my best buddy recommend me to try Moving I started to sample. I have not regretted since.  Moving is in Disney+ (who now very pleasantly surprised with the flood of interest to Moving that must have made them mint money), it is based on webtoon by … Continue reading Moving : An Unusually Great Series


I was a bit hesitating on whether or not I should watch Queenmaker. However upon reading the synopsis, which said that it is a drama about Korea politics where the leads are (nearly all) strong women characters, it is too intriguing to miss. The story is about accomplished fixer named Hwang Do-hee who works for Eunsong Group, chaebol (by now I realize how fixated and classic is chaebol theme for nearly all Korean writers) that focuses on retail and real estate (this also pretty classic). She fixed nearly unfixable situation with gusto. On the other side, we have Oh Kyung-sook … Continue reading Queenmaker

Slow burn dark under rated romance is not my favourite genre. However this one is so good that I nearly dont care whether this story will end as sad ending or not (spoiler alert,  it does not have sad ending).  The story focus on Kim Woojoo (Lee Sung Kyung) who is the female lead character with two siblings older and younger, they are abandoned by their father who remarried while their mom went to live country side after the incident. Her father principally remarried with his mistress and hismistress kicked the siblings out of their house without warning. In parallel Han Dong Jin (Kim Young Kwang) who is … Continue reading Call It Love – A Great Slow Burn Romance

Kokdu: Season of Deity and Kim Jung Hyun

I want to start with self disclose that unlike the rest of review where it is as objective as I can be. This review is not. I fell in love with Kim Jung-hyun watching Mr Queen, well actually even in Crash Landing on You as well as Waikiki. He has peculiar sense of comedic and at the same time able to move from comedic to romantic moment quickly without losing essence one or the other. Many of his scenes showcase his sensitive nature, as his acting came through in totality through his entire being sometime departing from typical body language and expression for given scenes, some actors you can … Continue reading Kokdu: Season of Deity and Kim Jung Hyun

Crash Course in Romance – A Simply Must See

I was fresh out of Forbidden Marriage (another funny warmhearted light kdrama you must watch, see my review) and wondering what else to watch, then I came across teaser of Crash Course in Romance that is quite unique. I did not know what to expect, there seems to be math hagwon-related story (hagwon is Korean after school tutorial which is a huge business in academic-centric Korean culture) but also slow burn romance hint then also funny comedic thing going on, I can’t fathom how to connect this. The first one seems like Penthouse-type makjang story I don’t quite prefer but … Continue reading Crash Course in Romance – A Simply Must See
