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: Life | Episode 13

A dying monster is the hardest to fight Another Miss Oh   Dr. Oh Se-wa (Moon So-ri) went MIA after dropping a bomb at the press conference. She left the whole hospital in chaos but she is nowhere to be found. I’m frustrated that there are no concrete hints about her whereabouts. I don’t want…

K-Drama Reaction: Life | Episode 12

They only have one chance to state their side Lee No-eul’s Choice To be honest, I feared the aftermath of the closing scene in episode 11. I thought it’ll be the end of Lee No-eul (Woo Jin-ah) and Ye Jin-woo’s (Lee Dong-wook) friendship. But No-eul has proven where her loyalty lies. She gave President Goo…

K-Drama Reaction: Life | Episode 11

They had to fight a bigger war What Will Happen To Us? This series is really consistent in showing egoism. It might be a bit more dramatic but it certainly reflects real life. Let’s not be hypocritical and admit that just like everyone in this series, most of the time, we all act out of…
