Please Come Back, Mister: Short-lived Happiness

There have been so many dramas that I wanted to check out recently, having heard many good things such that I didn’t want to give them a miss. This is why my watch-list has been piling exceptionally high up in these 2 months or so…therefore in an attempt to clear the list I decided to do a drama marathon and chose Please Come Back, Mister. As I dived into the show, I thought that I was only in for mainly funny substance but I was surprised at how emotional I got watching this. And these feelings don’t seem to go away – I even felt a bit sad that I finished the drama in 4 days, ha.

Ridiculously funny and yet filled with so much heart. Worth the watch even if you’re not really into fantasy (like me). I actually liked it more than I expected to – it was pretty unbelievable. 😛

I Remember You: A Mind Game

I finally picked up this drama after shelving it for some time, and I must say that it is going to be an unforgettable one out of all the shows I’ve seen this year. The online buzz also played a part in helping me to put I Remember You on my watch-list so I thank you, all fellow drama fans for showering it with lots of love ❤ I felt a bit sad after completing the drama though, since it was so good I’m not ready to let it go yet. No, it was exceptional. The plot was clever and the cast made it a joy to watch. If you’ve not caught it, don’t miss it!

Secret Door: The Good, the Bad, and the Acceptable Ones

I would be lying to myself if I said that Secret Door was not my most anticipated drama of the year. Everything about it screamed potential ground-breaking series on the paper: the network (SBS!), the screenwriter (her past works included Hwang Jin-yi and The Immortal Yi Sun-shin!), the director (he worked behind Sign, Ghost, and The Suspicious Housekeeper!), and not to forget, the star-studded cast. But then, the drama suffered low ratings despite the hype surrounding it before it premiered. One can argue that ratings aren’t what they used to represent but there are reasons why the drama turned up being underwhelming than what was expected.

Coming Soon: Secret Door

After what feels like an eternity since the news about Secret Door was first announced, SBS has finally opened the official website of the drama. It is the first sageuk for SBS this year and the anticipation for it is quite high, at least for me. I notice that the themes for dramas and movies are often intertwined and this year, Crown Prince Sado is one of the recurring characters in both television and movie production. Secret Door promises a retelling of the history that might be familiar to some people with a new approach.
