2017 Favorites: The Frown Crown

Finally, it's the year end! It's been a tough year for me, but good thing my dramas never left me hanging. It's fairly a dry year for K-dramaland this 2017, and I believe we have more misses than hits in terms of ratings. There were really good ones, but most are honestly forgettable. 2016 was…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Finale

Circle: Two Worlds Connected brought the curtain down for good in a finale that placed everything in a perfect spot. I was having a bad Circle withdrawal for days now and writing this somehow helped me in curing this separation anxiety. This is a drama that needs to be shown worldwide, a breakthrough for Korean…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 11

It's just sad that the ratings of this show keep getting lower every episode. I feel like more and more people should watch it not only because it's something fresh, but also the actors are doing incredibly great. The ambitious story line was met, and the dystopian setting was maintained all throughout the series. The…

Lee Joon-hyuk, Park Hwan-hee to play second leads in KBS’s Are You Human Too?

The casting for the "grand scale impersonation scam" KBS drama Are You Human Too? is now complete with Lee Joon-hyuk (Forest of Secrets) and Park Hwan-hee (Jealousy Incarnate) joining main stars Seo Kang-joon (Entourage) and Gong Seung-yeon (Circle: Two Worlds Connected) as second leads. Lee Joon-hyuk will play the role of Ji Young-hoon, an accomplice…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 10

What a great cliffhanger to end this week’s episode! Now that there are only two episodes left, more answers have been revealed and I cannot wait to see how this breakthrough drama will end. Part 1: Beta Project We open the first part with the old childhood memory of Woo-jin (Yeo Jin-goo) receiving a star…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 9

We now have a clearer timeline on the origin of things, and the events that led our key players to where they are today. The thin line that connects the two worlds is slowly disappearing and we are about to enter the dystopian society with no distinct barrier from the past. Part 1: Beta Project…

Seo Kang-joon, Gong Seung-yeon to star as leads in KBS drama Are You Human Too?

Seo Kang-joon (Entourage) and Gong Seung-yeon (Circle: Two Worlds Connected) are confirmed to star as leads in the upcoming  KBS miniseries Are You Human Too? The drama will tell the story of AI robot "Namshin-III" (or "God-III") that is created to temporarily take the place of a chaebol family's son who is in coma. Both characters…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 8

What I like about this show is that whenever I have a new theory, it always confronts me just to prove me wrong. I almost forgot the “alien” premise of this story because of too many missing persons in the plot. I don’t know if we will ever get enough explanation why Jung-yeon never aged…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 7

More secrets have been unearthed but the identity of the Human B chairman is still unknown. Yeo Jin-goo continues to impress me as the day goes by. Now that we are on the other half of the series, I expect this drama to solve the conflicts rather than complicating the situation further. Part 1: Beta…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 6

I don’t know if it’s just me but I like Beta Project more than Great New World. Maybe because I love Yeo Jin-goo as an actor, and I definitely believe that he shines in this drama. His acting brilliance makes me more invested in the events of the 2017 time line. Part 1: Beta Project…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 5

Every episode just gets better! tvN really hit the jackpot in its first sci-fi thriller which continue to deliver quality episodes and satisfy viewers’ hearts with excitement every week. I love how the show is able to prove the "connection" between the two worlds. In Beta Project, Kim Woo-jin (Yeo Jin-goo) is looking for his…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle Two Worlds Connected | Episode 4

Just when you thought your hunch was right, this show will prove that assumptions in K-Dramas are not always for real.  We confirmed some theories, we formulate new ones. But the case of the missing twins is far from getting resolved. Part 1: Beta Project (2017) While Kim Woo-jin (Yeo Jin-goo) discovers that Han Jung-yeon (Gong Seung-yun)…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 3

Ah, this show! I love it when the story line makes me think twice about the twists and turns leading up to the main conflict. This week's episode has another mind-boggling cliffhanger which honestly, I don't mind. The writing is so damn good that I have to spend the entire week consuming all the bombs dropped…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 2

We are going on full swing in solving the "is she an alien or not" mystery that this drama is trying to sell us. I have yet to grasp the fictional set-up, but I am liking where we are headed. Part 1: Beta Project (2017) Our twins open this hour in disbelief after both seeing…

K-Drama Reaction: Circle: Two Worlds Connected | Episode 1

I was consciously out of the loop with tvN's first sci-fi thriller until yesterday, before the airing of its pilot episode. I had zero expectations although I both love Yeo Jin-goo and Ahn Woo-yeon in their previous works. I am so proud of Jin-goo for top-billing this major TV venture, and I think all the recognition for…
