Love in Lockdown: Top Cohabitation K-dramas

At a time when the whole world is on quarantine, I can't help but think of one notorious K-drama trope that's been with us since the beginning. Whatever generation you may associate yourself with, you can always think of one specific drama that tackled this one -  cohabitation. Whether it's forced or not, it's a…

Han Ji-min, Jung Hae-in cast in Spring Night

Han Ji-min (The Light in Your Eyes) and Jung Hae-in (Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food) are cast in new MBC romance drama “Spring Night” (literal translation). Son Ye-jin was first offered the female lead character, but declined. This drama would also be Jung Hae-in's reunion with Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food writer Kim Eun…

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: 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…

Han Ji-min, Nam Joo-hyuk courted to star in new fantasy rom-com

News sources have reported that Han Ji-min (Familiar Wife) and Nam Joo-hyuk (Bride of the Water God) were both in positive talks to appear in a new jtbc fantasy romantic comedy Dazzling (working title). It was also stated that veteran acclaimed actress Kim Hye-ja (Dear My Friends) has been offered the older version of the female…

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…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 10

So let's talk about how this episode explained that Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) are really fated to love each other no matter where on earth's timeline they may live. We started the episode with Joo-hyuk and Hye-won's (Kang Hanna) marriage starting to crumble. It's partly Joo-hyuk's fault for being indifferent to his…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 9

I don't know if it's just me or there are also other people out there who are still supportive of Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) despite everything that's been happening with him right now. I know it's easy to take sides in this drama, especially when you empathize with Woo-jin (Han Ji-min), and I get where the…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 8

Making the wrong decision is still fate. In this episode, Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) learned the hard way of facing the consequences of one's actions. After witnessing the supposed "kiss" (it didn't happen) between Jong-hoo (Jang Seung-jo) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min), he lost his cool and desperately searched everywhere for the homeless man who "helped" him…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 7

"There is no correct answer in love." I like this newfound friendship between Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) and Joo-eun (Park Hee-bon) in this alternate timeline. We all know they were not really friends in their original lives as the real Woo-jin was aloof towards the real Joo-eun. Or maybe because Woo-jin was just too stressed out…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 6

The second lead game is in full swing in this episode, and boy, my heart is already feeling the burn of this ship. When Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) mentioned that she doesn't feel any spark with Jong-hoo (Jang Seung-jo), I suddenly realized that this isn't the timeline that I want the original couple to end up…
