K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 10

How do you nurse a broken heart? Do you avoid the person who's causing you pain? Or do you face it head-on until the emotions die down? Whatever your approach is, there's one thing we can't deny: no one can escape a heartbreak. Is it really the end? Just like how most people felt towards…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 9

Honestly, I was watching this episode knowing that doom would befall our Bo-young (Lee Yu-bi) (not because I wanted it but it has always been that way). Our naive therapist has always been a magnet to bad luck that for good things to happen all at the same time was kinda suspicious. And I was…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 8

    It's a universal truth: We go on with our daily lives wearing a mask. We smile to conceal our pain and sorrow; we say we're okay even when we're hurting inside. And when we're finally alone, in our moment of solitude, that's when we cry our hearts out. The story behind Kim Yoon-joo's…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 7

Romantic emotions are arguably the hardest to conceal because no matter how hard you try to hide them, they have their own way of manifesting themselves. The 'unpretty' Bo-young It was a battle between Bo-young (Lee Yu-bi) and Min-ho (Jang Dong-yoon) to prove whether or not boys do find our naive physical therapist attractive. Round 1…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 6

There are no other stories like the ones about the family that can move me to tears very easily. That is why this episode has become my favorite so far. The meaning of family The drama has successfully explored differing concepts of family through the eyes of Bo-young (Lee Yu-bi) and Min-ho (Jang Dong-yoon). Bo-young's…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 5

I love how romance is shaping up in this drama but unlike other dramas which kinda bore me when the OTP is absent on the screen, A Poem a Day keeps me glued to the screen, thanks to the supporting characters whose stories are equally interesting. Brewing love triangle Looks like our crybaby Bo-young (Lee…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 4

Showing the good side Have you ever done something so regrettable because of drunkenness? Well, Bo-young (Lee Yu-bi) did. It's been revealed that she did not only talked about the Ye Line in front of Dr. Ye Jae-wook (Lee Joon-hyuk) himself but she also unabashedly told him he like him and sent him poems via…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 3

The Ye Line Looks like the most difficult days are over for Bo-young (Lee Yu-bi) or at least, more endurable now with Dr. Ye Jae-wook (Lee Joon-hyuk)'s addition to the Physical Therapy Department. Dr. Ye might be cold and straightforward but he can't stand unfair situations which are very prevalent in their section. And that…

First Impressions: Children of a Lesser God, A Poem a Day, Switch, Miracle That We Met

The flood of new dramas continues and we've also got a latecomer in the review game. These new shows are pretty diverse both in subject and execution and to be honest, I really had a hard time ranking them. Children of a Lesser God Network: OCN Genre: Supernatural, Thriller, Action No. of Episodes: 16 (60-75 mins…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 2

Am I the only who feels like this show is more of a sitcom rather than a drama? Not that I'm complaining because I do enjoy how the writer is trying to establish the characters' individual quirkiness in each and every funny interaction they have with each other.     Meet our genius doctor, Ye…

K-Drama Reaction: A Poem a Day | Episode 1

2018 is shaping up to be a very good year for dramaland. Honestly, we at Ahjummamshies are having a tough time choosing which dramas we will review because they all seem promising. In my case, for example, it was already set in stone that I'll pick my next assignment in April, but after watching A Poem…
