This show had everything I can want out of a romantic comedy: adorable banter, natural relationship progression, characters who make each other better people, smoldering sexual tension and smoking hot kiss scenes.
To celebrate her birthday month, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of Korean dramas that we both enjoyed and would recommend to others. So if my lone recommendation wasn’t enough to convince you, these dramas have two people recommending them!
Navillera is a story about two mean, one in their prime and one in their twilight years who are united by the passion of ballet and the dream to soar on stage. And oh man, this drama has soared to the top of my favorite list.
Just Between Lovers is a contemplative, slice of life drama that shows the pain and healing that occurs after a tragedy.
The casting and pairing of Park Bo Young as Do Bong Soon and Park Hung Sik as Ahn Min Hyuk. They were both absolutely perfect in their roles. Hands down, they are my favorite all time OTP...
This was the k-drama that started it all for me. It was my first foray into the Korean Drama world and my first experience of the Netflix binge where it’s 11pm and you really should go to bed, but you tell yourself, just 15 more minutes and then suddenly, it’s 1am!
Overall, this was an entertaining 2.5 hours of my night. I would even recommend my dad and brother who don’t watch Korean shows to give this one a try. It’s a great movie to pull in an international audience.
Over all, despite some ridiculousness and a little too mystical at times, I really enjoyed this drama. It had a lot of heart and warmth. The characters were all unique and well developed and the moral was a nice one. You are left feeling good and wanted to do good.
Over all, I thought everything was done well in this drama from the writing, acting, directing and costuming.
The third and final installment in the Reply/Answer Me series, this one is set in the year 1988, it revolves around five friends and their families living in the same neighborhood. And yes, like the other two, there is the question of, who does she marry?
