K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Finale

By this time, I think so many people aired their disappointments about this drama already. I watched the ending days ago, but I can't seem to collect my thoughts and write a cohesive piece in this blog because I felt like the show had so much potential from the beginning, but then the writer seemed…

I can't deal with this nonsense anymore so let's get right to it. Can't wait for this agony to end. Sae-woo's mom Madame Jin (Lee Mi-sook) is really testing me when it comes to her entitled persona. She came to Poong's (Junho) restaurant at peak lunch time and acted like a diva. She threatened Poong,…

Poong (Junho) is finally the Head Chef in Giant Hotel after winning the cook-off vs Master Wang (Lim Won-hee). It's funny how fate works for Poong because he won not because of his own lobster recipe, but because of the main ingredient chosen by his competitor - pork belly. It's funny how Master Wang crumbled…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 31-32

The episodes were filled with love and bromance and more food. I'm glad that it's getting better in terms of plot development, but still I can't accept why does the writer need to make Chil-sung (Jang Hyuk) suffer a little more. Poong loves Sae-woo So the highlights of these two episodes were all about Poong…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 29-30

The cat is out of the bag! We spent the entire hour watching Poong (Junho) immaturely scolding Sae-woo (Jung Ryeo-won), Seol-ja (Park Ji-young), and Geok-jung (Tae Hang-ho). I get where he is coming from but directing his anger to them while they are all working in the kitchen is not really helping in the restaurant's…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 27-28

I still don't know why Sae-woo's mother Jin Jung-hye (Lee Mi-sook) insists that her daughter should marry someone who is "at the same level" as them. Ahjumma, I understand that Poong (Junho) is really mean to you, but please wake up! You even criticized Sae-woo's ex husband O-jik (Lee Ki-hyuk) for not going against his…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 25-26

The struggle is real with this show. Just as I was able to open up my heart and try to love it again, it pushed me away with vengeance, determined to disappoint me with it's incoherent writing and plot developments. Oh no you didn't So yes, the banquet was cancelled as expected because again (as…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 21-22

I don't know if I am the only one who's lost in this drama, but I feel like I am standing in the middle of an intersection while watching poorly executed scenes with lackluster storytelling. Let me start with the Whole Shrimp Festival whatever...  so finally we get to see Hungry Wok get filled with happy…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 19-20

Honestly, this is the first time that I will root for Poong (Junho) with all my heart. We all witnessed how he felt devastated after his marriage crashed down, then he lost his job, then his so-called friends betrayed him, then got beaten by a bunch of thugs, among other misfortunes that came in his…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 17-18

Ahhhh, this episode pierced right through me. I know for Poong (Junho) shippers out there, this episode feels like heaven. Poong got his recipe book back, Sae-woo (Jung Ryeo-won) admitted to him that she is now single, and now they're low-key flirting. But for my Chil-sung (Jang Hyuk) heart, this is not a good sight.…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 15-16

Chil-sung (Jang Hyuk) is safe!!! Poong (Junho) just came right in time to call the cops and save uri injured ahjussi. He and Sae-woo (Jung Ryeo-won) were able to send him to the hospital. Only Sae-woo and Chil-sung got the corresponding treatment, but I think Poong also needed to get his arm checked. Crooked (Ryu…

K-Drama Reaction: Wok of Love | Episodes 13-14

Whenever I watch Wok of Love, I feel like time freezes and one hour flies by quickly. I enjoy every moment in the drama that whenever we close each chapter, I kept on asking myself, "That's it? I'll have to wait for another subbed episode again just to watch Jang Hyuk and his adorable one-sided…
