It’s already April (time really flies), and I thought I should sum up my 2015 with dramaland. My apologies for it coming so very late, but here’s the list of last year’s dramas I’ve completed and some thoughts about them. As usual, Korea has lots of titles to offer each year but abundance also means that really good dramas can be hard to come by. It’s almost a one in a million chance for us to find a show that can fully blow us away! However, that is also why I continue to be a drama fan even as time passes: because there are gems not to be missed 🙂 The drama choices we have seem never-ending now that there are cable networks (compared to just the Big 3 back then). Furthermore, 2015 is also the year I discovered some great shows outside kdramas!
This is actually an interview by Newsen after the online news outlet conducted a poll to choose the couple with the best chemistry in 2015 dramas. Kill Me, Heal Me OTP, Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum topped the poll and Newsen went to give the best couple ‘award’ to both of them. The sad thing is they’re not being interviewed together (too bad!!) but at least, we get to see them again! Remember, the time we fell for Ji Sung♡Hwang Jung-eum…the best couple of 2015 (according to netizens)~
[Hello everyone! Mimi’s here. I’m really excited to introduce the latest addition to the members of the cupboard. Say hi to Jas aka dramalandloverj! She will be sharing her thoughts on kdramas here at the talking cupboard, so be on the lookout for her posts! Enjoy her take on dramas she has watched in the first half of the year 2015~]
It feels like the year just started but it’s already the second half of 2015. Time really flies; I’ve seen dramas come and go for the past ~6.5 months. I have to say that the ride with dramaland has been both breathtaking and heart-stopping so far. Before I go into the specifics, I shall tell you a little about myself.
It feels like he’s Cha Do-hyun, it seems like he’s Shin Se-gi, but he’s not Yo-na..he’s the actor Ji Sung.
Because they’re all the images of the actor himself.
It’s time for Do-hyun to part ways with his alters, one by one (NOOOOOOOO) and also for us to say goodbye to them, not to forget the characters who have been there (NOOOOOOOO) for the past two and a half months. Time goes by almost unnoticed (NOOOOOOOO), and farewell is inevitable at this point. Perhaps, I would have used Se-gi’s time-freezing method to make time stop, if he had any, but it was just a wish no one could have in this world (NOOOOOOOO). Yeah, I am okay. It’s the last episode. I am okay (NOOOOOOOO).
After all the trials and tribulations they faced in the past few weeks (or 21 years, if we’re to follow the plot), it’s time for both Ri-jin and Do-hyun to enter the stage of healing together. Embracing the painful memories seems to be the best choice for them, because they knew it better that running away from those nightmares did not solve anything. They deserve all the love and happiness for the rest of their lives, but will it be peaceful for them with the intervention from the alters of Do-hyun?
The drama probably has had enough with killing our hearts through those torture and pain, and here’s a good news: the healing part is here! I’m so happy that the drama doesn’t wait until the final week to offer us the closure to certain things, and it’s kinda lessen up the pain when I think of the impending goodbye. Everything has to come to an end (including the drama sobs), but for Do-hyun and Ri-jin, their journey towards healing has just started with acknowledging their past, although it wasn’t all pretty and shiny.
This hour can be regarded as a ‘Back to the Past’ segment, with most of the characters whose names we’re already familiar of make their appearance, although they only exist in the memories of the people who are still alive. Although the end is just on the horizon, it does feel strange to get to know what happened to the elders and the kids – who have grown up with scars inside their hearts – after being teased with bits and pieces of the past. It’s still the angst season in the drama, so consider yourself warned before diving into this episode!
