I was scammed…

The-Wedding-Scheme-Poster2

I recently saw the drama The wedding scheme. In my opinion; the whole drama was a scheme!

I started watching this drama because of the title “The wedding scheme” and the description “A mother of four daughters and the president of a kimchi factory decides to embark on a grand marriage scheme for her children… by having them cohabitate with four eligible bachelors.” I wanted to watch something cute and lovey-dovey, so of course, this seemed like the perfect drama!

I was wrong….

But I don’t want this review to be misleading! The drama was good and cute, but the way the drama was advertised and the actual drama just doesn’t fit. The drama is about a mother with four daughters. The mother is the president of a kimchi factory. The factory is not doing well, so they move out of their beautiful home to a less extravagant one and they gain three male tenants who will live with them. The main focus is on one of the daughters who works at the food division of a company that the mother highly dislikes. The daughter is trying to make her mothers kimchi because the CEO of the company loves it and wants to sell it. But her mother is trying everything in her power to not make that happen. Also, the son of the CEO is in the same food division as the daughter and will also become one of the tenants. We know where this is going. (Highly predictable :P)

This is why I say that the drama itself is misleading. The drama is mainly focused on the kimchi factory and the company. 80% of their conversation was; kimchi, kimchi, kimchi. I swear, I almost dreamt about kimchi. 

KIMCHIIIIIIII!!!!

Lol, I’m turning into a nutcase. But yes, the mother does say in one episode that whoever marries first will inherit the factory, but nobody seemed too bothered about it. None of the daughters felt like they had to rush to get married or felt any particular pressure. There is no rivalry between the sisters so it’s a pretty peaceful drama. But I do feel like this drama gave me nothing of what I expected. So even though I still laughed really loud at some parts and smiled at the end of the last episode…..

I still feel scammed!

The unforgettable tale of a “Horse doctor”

65199270And so the story goes…

I finished watching the drama Horse doctor a couple of minutes ago :P. I wanted to write the review while all the emotions were still fresh. I’ve got one word; exceptional!

Watching historical dramas are always tricky to me. I often feel nervous because 80% of the historical dramas I’ve seen end tragically. I’m also dreading the fact that it might be a bad drama, but since most historical dramas have a lot of episodes, I might find that out a little too late since I want to give it a chance. So you guys get my point; I do a lot of thinking before I see a historical drama. But for some reason, something about this drama attracted me. I put it in my “watch-when-all-the-episodes-come-out list” haha. Although I literally knew nothing of the drama. I guess it was just my drama senses kicking in 😛

The plot is very complex. Almost to the point where it’s impossible to explain it without giving something important away. I’ll try my best though! It’s basically about a boy( Baek Kwanghyun) who will have his whole fate twisted upside down due to one action that was done the minute he was born. He will live a life that is not his own. After another twisted fate, he finds himself at a horse farm as an orphan at the age of 11. Here he lives till he’s a young adult. He becomes a horse doctor that will later get the opportunity to become an apprentice in the royal pharmacy – and we all know that a ladder is created to be climbed, so he will indeed climb to the top where he eventually becomes the royal physician taking care of the Royal family.

During all the mess, fortune and misfortune that happens in his life, he meets a girl(Kang Jinyong) – three times. Once at birth, the second time when he’s 11, and the third time in the pharmacy. The first time, she saves his life. The second time, they become friends. The third time, they fall in love – only to find out about their sick twisted fates that intertwine like no other. How will they manage to figure this out while dealing with all the drama that is already happening in the capital? Murder, treason, lies, conspiracy, betrayal, friendship, love, companionship, loyalty – they all take place in the capital, and they all take place in Baek Kwanghyun and Kang Jinyong’s life…

That plot summary does not do the drama justice at all! I don’t know how I can praise this drama without over-praising it 😛 In my opinion, it was everything a drama ought to have – and more! I love how we met so many different characters, and not just for a brief meeting, but throughout the drama. When I saw the last episode, I was thinking of how much I was going to miss them all. They’re so precious! Yes, you’ll meet a lot of different evil people in the drama that will make you want to choke somebody. But the good people of the drama will make you cry. This drama made me emotionally unstable! haha

The main character is played by Cho Seung Woo, which is an actor I had never heard of before. I am 100% honest when I say that I cannot picture anyone else playing that role. He was out of this world! He’s the kind of person that is not particularly handsome or eye-catching, but he’s personality will slowly but surely shine through to the point where you can’t see anything but beauty and goodness in him. I fell in love with everything that he was.

The leading couple were really good together as well which pleased me a lot! They were just extremely cute. Their happiness together made me smile like fool and their sadness together made me cry like a bigger fool! Lol, but I don’t want to talk more about the drama!!! A drama is indeed best when it surprises you, and I don’t want to deprive anyone of that joy. The drama does have 50 episodes, but I’ll be honest, I don’t even know where those 50 episodes went… (^-^)

Another great drama finshed. The feeling never gets old….

This is probably the longest we’ve been gone since we officially started this blog. I ended my exams two weeks ago actually, but I was just too lazy to write anything :P! Because I was so focused on school, I hadn’t been watching anything in particular, so there wasn’t really that much to write about. Soulful Stardust won’t be done with her exams in the nearest future – she has a valid excuse ;). 

I will hopefully put up a drama review as soon as I finish the drama I’m watching right now. It’s called Horse Doctor. The name doesn’t do the drama justice. I have been having so much fun watching it. I can’t wait to tell you guys about it!

I’ve been loving this songOne love ❤

It’s been a while, huh? :O

I have just been SWAMPED these couple of weeks. I was in another city for a couple of days, my sister-in-law and niece came to visit, I had awful exams and everything was just chaotic! The understatement of the century!

I can’t say that my situation is better now, but I do feel like I have more control, so that helps 😛 Needless to say, I haven’t watched ANYTHING. It feels SO strange being away from the Kworld for so long. But I did get to watch the final episode of Kpop Star Audition Season 2 yesterday. I was soooo happy that ******* won 😀 (Don’t try to count the stars, I just randomly typed them haha 😛

I’ll try to tune in more often, but if I don’t; you know why 😉

Stay well.

Diamonds in the dirt

Hey Beauties! Not too long ago I was actually searching for good korean dramas that people had watched. I came to realize something – I was not surprised! I read list after list and most of them had the same dramas! So I came up with this idea; why not make a Top 10 underrated Korean Dramas list? Just to freshen things up a bit 😉 I guess there is only one thing to say then…lets-go-and-be-adventurers-wallpaper

A little disclaimer would be that these are not my all time favorite dramas! These dramas will be my top 10 favorite underrated dramas; or diamonds in the dirt, as I like to call them 😀

NR 10 

Can you hear my heart

Can You Hear My Heart wallpaper

This drama has excitement, romance, passion, deceite, revenge and so much more in it! You wouldn’t believe it from just the wallpaper. But more than anything – It’s heartwarming. More than words can describe. Truly enjoyed watching it and I’m very suprised that more people haven’t got this drama as one of the “good” dramas they’ve seen!

NR 9

My love by my side

photo167687

This is probably the longest drama I’ve seen. If I remeber correctly, it had 50 episodes. I would call this a traditional family drama. By that I mean, we meet and get to know more people than we usually would in a “regular” drama. Nonetheless, this drama was ridiculous! Ridiculously good! I have to admit, no matter how good it was, I still wished it was shorter, but I don’t regret watching it at all! I have never, and I repeat, NEVER hated someone as much as I hated one of the mothers. If you see or have seen the drama, you will know EXACTLY who I’m talking about. HAHA! But on a serious note, this drama has some serious tension and a GREAT plot. Trust me!

NR 8

Tamna the Island

29312_ostrov-txamna_or_tamra-the-island_1280x1024_(www.GdeFon.ru)

Oh, come joy!! You have no idea how much FUN I had watching this drama. If you’re looking for something funny, interesting, unique and cute; then this is the drama for you. I still can’t understand why so many people haven’t heard of it or given it a chance. This drama was a treat for me!

NR 7

Creating destiny

k09Creating_Destiny001

Just looking at this poster makes me happy 😀 I would call this a traditional family drama as well considering the fact that we meet a lot of couples and their love stories as well. But I would on no note compare this drama to “My love by my side”. This drama is strictly happiness 😛 The issues that occur are minor and you won’t hate anyone, but when it comes to loving anyone, I can’t promise you anything there haha! Hands down one of the most heartwarming and cutest drama I’ve ever seen. 100 % L.E.G.I.T

NR 6

City hall

4446637313_cc89d58ca0

This drama is so special to me O_O I can’t really explain it, it’s just a feeling I get when I watch it. But this drama has true aspects of comedy and romance. It’s such a beautiful mixture. I laughed soooo hard and at the same time I was in love haha! And I have mentioned earlier on another post that the main couple have an extremely strong connection. Almost to the point where you feel like you’re intruding in their personal life. I’m so happy to have found this drama. Don’t be scared by the dramas name. Politics is only their surrounding, but their love is the driving force. Exceptional!

NR 5

Smile you

smile-you-2

This drama is so cute -_- To the point where I almost started to dislike my own life haha! I really enjoyed it though. I got really attached to both families and their situation. STILL can’t believe why this drama is not popular! I understand that it has around 40- something episodes, but hey, sometimes that’s what you have to sacrifice in order to experience a good drama 😛 Absoloutely adorable and veeeery close to my heart!

NR 4

The greatest love

the-greatest-love-korean-drama-01

This drama might not be as underrated as the other dramas here, but still, it deserves more props! I cannot explain in words how much I LAUGHED MY BUTT OFF during this drama. I think that this drama and Wild Romance need a battle to figure out which one is funnier. I seriously don’t know. All I remember is having tears in my eyes. The amount of ridiculous scenes in this drama is crazy! But they still manage to have a pretty interesting and great plot! This drama really succeeded in sooo many ways! Complexity, I guess you can say 😉

NR 3

Stars falling from the sky

stars-falling-form-the-sky-e1304287474470

Okay, what? This drama is… I don’t know how many times I’ve watched it! I seriously felt stupid when I finished it. Like how could I ever have missed out on such a good drama? Granted, it’s been years now, so I don’t know if my “experienced drama eyes” will find it as good as it once was, but trust me! I LOVED it!! When I say love, I mean that this drama would probably be in my top 10 favorite dramas of all time!

NR 2

Chuno

chuno_87

We’ve already talked about this haha! This drama is crazy. I can’t go into detail cause I might just end this post and go watch it 😛 This is my all time favorite historical drama, right next to Hong Gil Dong and Iljimae, which both by the way are AMAZING! The reason why Chuno shocks me more than other underrated dramas is because it’s a great drama for both girls AND boys. So one would think that this drama would fly off the roof! But it didn’t and I find that odd. The soundtrack is also one thing that amazed me. It’s the first time I have actually payed attention the the OST as it was probably one of the best soundtracks I’ve ever heard. Especially the fighting scenes. Speechless.

NR 1

I’ts okay, daddy’s girls

its-okay-daddys-girl

Here we have it. My number 1 favorite underrated korean drama! This drama found a safe place in my heart and I haven’t been able to let it go ever since. It’s so precious that I haven’t even recommended this drama to my close friends. I feel like it’s mine or something haha, so consider yourself lucky 😛 This drama took me away to another world, and I sometimes escape to visit it. It was beautiful, I can’t really say anything else. I laughed, I cried, I smiled, I fell in love. More than anything; it was a true diamond in the dirt..

There you have my little list! I hope you enjoyed it 😉

Till next time

XoXo

How innocent are you really?

Innocent_man_drama_poster

I just feel like I have to write this in the heat of the moment. It’s half past midnight…

I finished watching the drama Innocent man at this very moment! This drama was one of the dramas I considered watching and then forgot all about its existence. I recently re-discovered it and decided to try my luck! I have to be honest; I’m a rom-com kinda girl. Melo’s are usually not my cup of tea, but the plot is usually what sells it for me…

I was sold.

What I liked about this drama was the solid plot. The story is extremely complex and intriguing. I wanted to get to know the characters more and more. They were all riddles I wanted to solve. I remember watching it and thinking: wow, this drama is really an onion! The layers simply never stop.

Another thing that I liked was the fact that even the “bad” people in this drama weren’t really that bad! I think that the main reason for that was because we slowly, but surely, found out why they did what they did. We find compassion in a hopeless place. I found myself not being able to hate the hateful, but rather pity and forget.

This drama made me think of how short life is. How we take a happy healthy life for granted. Life is truly precious. Honestly, it made me tear up a bit, but hey! That could just be my emotionally unstable ass 😛

So far you might think that it’s an extremely serious drama; trust me….

IT IS!

Lol, don’t worry! There are a lot of fun moments in the drama and heartwarming moments as well. All in all; a drama you shouldn’t miss out on 😉

I didn’t go to school…

Hello loveliiiiies ❤

school_rumble_1_2

It’s been a little while, huh? There were a lot of times that I considered posting, but I just felt like I had nothing to say, really. I have actually been watching a couple of dramas, I’m just struggling with the finishing parts 😛 I’ll have a couple of reviews up not too long from now 😉

I’m still not head over heels for any dramas. It’s beeeeen what, almost a year now? And I still have not made a treasure found! O.O soooo disappointed in myself. I can’t recall any good dramas after King 2 hearts and Rooftop prince. Trust me, I have come to the conclusion that it’s me. There is something wrong with me and not the dramas. 😛 Just to say it like this; if I ever make a flawless review of a drama that I thought was INCREDIBLE, you’re in for a TREAT… no lie O_O

Other then my kdrama issues, there’s school. -______- and all the fun and love that follows!… sometimes, I feel like jumping…

rope.

I have no idea what you were picturing o.O

Stay in school!

Until next time 😉 ~
