Hello Kdrama fans! I'm back again, with another awesome Kdrama to introduce to you guys! I haven't been watching Kdramas for quite awhile now and have missed out on a couple of awesome dramas. Yet on the bright side, I won't need to wait irritatedly for new episodes to be out especially when the previous ending episode's makes you crave for more. Now, I've a list to enjoy watching.. at my own pace >.- on second thoughts, it isn't that bad afterall. haha!
I've recently just finish watching May Queen 2 days back. And I cried my eyeballs out. It was so so so really very tragic, that it just makes your tears flow non-stop. It's one super duper melodrama show. Then again, i do like how the plot twists. It's not that predictable to a certain extend, it throws you surprises once in awhile. I did a review on May Queen in my earlier post last year when the drama was still ongoing. So here, are my thoughts about the drama after finally finishing the whole Kdrama. It's AWESOME!! It's one of the few long dramas, which usually has only 16 episodes. May Queen has 38 episodes. Pretty much like a mini korean soap opera drama huh? Anyway, it's a pretty good drama to catch if you're looking for one. Furthermore, it's completed! Your cravings for wanting more can be eased. hehe.
You can read my blog post review on May Queen, HERE.
Alright, sorry for sidetracking! I was suppose to introduce you a new Kdrama aren't I? This new Kdrama i'm currently watching is "Cheongdam-dong Alice". It isn't really a new Kdrama actually (just new to me). There's 4 more episodes to go before this drama comes to a close. Do check this drama out if you have not!
Read on and you'll know why. Even i'm hooked onto it!
Genre: Romance, Comedy
No. of Episodes: 16
Broadcast: Saturdays & Sundays
Han Se-kyung's personal motto is "L'effort est ma force (Hard work is my strength)" and she battles all sorts of hardships with an optimistic attitude. She enters every design contest she can apply to and finally gets hired at her dream job at an apparel company, only to find that she's the glorified errand girl for the president's wife. To make things worse, the boss's wife was once her high school classmate and rival, who was a worse student than Se-kyung, and now determined to make her life miserable.
So Se-kyung makes up her mind to marry a rich man and embarks on the project to become a "Cheongdam-dong daughter-in-law," an upscale, fashionable young lady who marries into the social upper crust in Cheongdam-dong (a small, insular, and particularly posh neighborhood in Seoul's Gangnam district).
The title is a word play on Alice in Wonderland, and refers to the heroine's fish-out-of-water status in said neighborhood, as she navigates the strange new world of designer clothes, gossip and consumerism. Se-kyung agrees to enter into a marriage, but what ensues is a "warm and cheerful story of finding real happiness."

This drama is still ongoing with 4 more episodes to go before it ends. I don't tear as much as May Queen vice versa, I laugh like an idiot sometimes watching this show. The protagonist Seung Jo (Park Si Hoo) makes this drama is cute and hilarious. There's just so many side of him, which makes it cute and really funny. From being such a kid, to his serious moments to a side of him filled with hurt and sorrow from his past. Furthermore, Park Si Hoo is such a charmer! *mind wanders* I got attracted to this dude after watching "The Princess' Man". Man, that historical drama is really good too! I wouldn't mind re-watching it again! Well, of course this drama is worth re-watching again and so does a few other couple of awesome Kdramas. I'm sure most of you Kdrama addicts (like me previously) would be able to guess which dramas I'm referring to? We would have some similarities somewhat, don't you think so? haha!
This drama relates pretty much to the world we live in a way or another. A world where not many of us may know yet it does exist with a different kind of circumstance or situation. You may agree or disagree with me. Most of us are living such blessed lives that at times we forgot all about poverty. The fight for survival for a better life, lesser suffering a world where may be most of us have not experienced it before.
It's always been said that the rich would never pick the poor yet sometimes miracles can happen but it's like finding a needle in a haystack. The script and plot of this drama is a thumbs up! I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Then again, you have to watch it to know why. I really don't wish to be a spoiler, but i've a couple of photos and the drama preview posted which should be enough to get you interested and roughly know about this drama!
