Days after this drama would surely be uncomfortable #ManCrushMonday Yi Yul (EXO DO /Do Kyung-soo) wasn’t supposed to be the crown prince. His family was content with their simple life out of the palace. But greedy elders need to use a royal blood to fulfill their desirous plan. They planned a coup to replace the…

K-Drama Reaction: My ID is Gangnam Beauty | Series Review

They say pretty hurts and it does. Don’t judge a K-drama by its premise I was already used to quirky over-the-top plots of webtoon-based dramas that I thought My ID is Gangnam Beauty would be another series filled with overzealous characters and out-of-this-world conflicts. The story of a girl who was bullied in middle school…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Finale

There is something about familiar happy endings that touch my heart. And as Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) give marriage another shot, they made sure not to commit the mistakes of the past and do it right this time. The way they portrayed a love-filled episode, despite the routine of daily struggles proved…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 15

This one was a filler episode, which consisted of all the fluffy stuff. I felt like because Episode 14 was too good, the drama ended there and these last two episodes were just fillers to satisfy our eyes with more cheesy couple time. But overall, seeing Jo Jung-suk reprise his role as the feisty Kang…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 14

It was really satisfying to see Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) finally standing firm on a decision after seeing him struggle with his every life-changing move. Since the beginning, we all see him as someone who quickly bows out whenever something difficult happens, and in the latest episodes, we continue seeing him break his own promise of…

K-Drama Reaction: Life | Finale

We just have to believe that all will be well. The Only Way After all the theatrics in the last episode about how it was difficult for them to defeat a conglomerate, President Goo Seung-hyo (Cho Seung-woo) ended up knowing a way to appease the raging giant. The doctors let out the bait, the Minister…

K-Drama Reaction: Life | Episode 15

They can’t escape this uneven battle. She’s Back After going MIA for two episodes, Director Oh Se-hwa (Moon So-ri) is finally back. She probably had to settle her family’s safety first before storming back to her turf. She made sure the Restructure Team sent by the Hwajeong Group knew who they tried to silence. Dr.…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 13

Things have really been interesting lately, especially with how the plot twists were laid out. So we joined Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) in her journey to the past, but she incidentally tagged Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) along with her. And Woo-jin's first task of the day? It was to make sure that her Dad would not go…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 12

I loved this episode. It is all about Joo-hyuk's (Ji Sung) road to maturity. All season long we were witnessing how he turned from being the selfish, immature husband to the loving, selfless friend of everyone. The heart-to-heart confession with Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) was perfectly acted by the one and only Ji Sung. I could…

K-Drama Reaction: Life | Episode 14

This is one thrilling climactic climb. New Rules Deputy Director Kim Tae-sang (Moon Sung-geun) took one last gasp before his last breath. He didn’t die per se but it is certainly the end of his 30 years stint at Sangkook University. I’ve expressed how annoying his character is but I felt deep pity while watching…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 11

One thing I realized while watching this episode was that there was the love of Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) for Hye-won (Kang Hanna) had no strong foundation. He had no memories with Hye-won; he doesn't even remember their own wedding. All his memories consisted of Woo-jin and their kids. Hye-won was a mere image in his…
