Korean Drama Update for September 2015

Oh My Ghostess Korean Drama - Park Bo Young and Jo Jung Suk

September was a pretty great month when it comes to kdramas!  I had some highly anticipated dramas to look forward to, a lovely drama that had been on my watch list for a awhile now, and a drama I watched on a whim and ended up disappointed.  I completed four dramas this month, three currently/recently aired and one classic:

Scholar Who Walks the Night Korean Drama - Lee Joon Gi and Lee Yoo BiScholar Who Walks the Night

Scholar Who Walks the Night was such an enjoyable drama.  It wasn’t perfect, but it had the feel of an epic fairy tale, and I would love to see more stories like this in kdramas.  Lee Joon Gi was amazing as usual.  I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect tortured vampire.  He immersed himself in the role as did all of the actors.  I was also introduced to Lee Soo Hyuk as Gwi, and I was thoroughly pleased with him.  Overall, Scholar Who Walks the Night hit all the right spots, and I can definitely see myself revisiting this one in the future.

Oh My Ghostess Korean Drama - Park Bo Young and Jo Jung SukOh My Ghostess

Oh My Ghostess was a nice little drama with lots of laughs and lots of cute.  It had an interesting murder mystery, but I would have liked to have seen a bit more of that particular plot point to carry the drama along.  The plot focused a bit too heavily on the relationships, but luckily, that element was very strong.  Jo Jung Suk, Park Bo Young, Kim Seul Gi, and Im Joo Hwan were all amazing in their roles, and their performances really made up for the lack of a substantial plot.  All in all, there is a lot of fun to be had with Oh My Ghostess!

Hidden Identity Korean Drama - Kim BumHidden Identity

Hidden Identity is the disappointment this month.  The first couple episodes had such an interesting premise, and I was so excited to see how it was all going to play out, but then everything fell apart around episode three.  Boredom and shoddy police work sum up the rest of this drama.  Of course, Kim Bum was great, as well as the other actors.  It’ the story surrounding them that just didn’t cut it.

Padam Padam Korean Drama - Kim Bum, Han Ji Min, and Jung Woo SungPadam Padam

Padam Padam is such a beautiful drama.  It’s story is unique with few drama clichés.  The actors were phenomenal with the best bromance I have seen in a kdrama between Jung Woo Sung and Kim Bum.  It also had romance, wonderful family relationships, fantasy, and even a little suspense.  The emotions were so high throughout this drama.  I felt so much hope and inspiration from Padam Padam, and can you really beat having Kim Bum as a guardian angel? (Padam Padam Review)

Well, that’s it for me.  So how was September for you?

For the month of October, I hope to complete Yong Pal, A Tree With Deep Roots, and hopefully a couple others.

Happy drama watching to everyone!

    Wow! Kudos for completing 4 dramas! If you liked Lee Soo Hyuk, I would recommend High School King Of Savvy…a really charming show.
    I completed Oh My Ghostess…I haven’t seen any oldie from a long time. But I’m actually watching lots of movies and also American TV shows…so the time gets divided. Not to mention college and reading…hehe

      Ooh, I didn’t realize he was in High School King of Savvy! I was already interested in the drama, but I think now it is a must watch🙂

      Lol, I can usually complete 3-4 dramas in a month. I primarily watch kdramas, but there are few American shows that steal time away, and of course my job, ha ha.

      There are just too many older dramas I want to get caught up on. And since I primarily prefer to marathon, they of course work better for that. But all of these newer dramas have certainly been taking up more of my time lately, lol.

        When did you start watching K-dramas?
        It happened with me that when I started watching them back in 2011, I only used to marathon more and more dramas and one drama would take 4-5 days (sometimes even less) to get completed. Later, RL things and my increased knowledge about dramas and actors and everything led me to start watching dramas live, which is most convenient if you have a busy schedule…so now I mainly watch currently airing dramas (and so the list of shows, that I have still not seen, is collecting dust *sigh*)

          I started watching kdramas in 2013. Like you, I pretty much exclusively would marathon at first. I did watch a few live dramas last year, but I absolutely hated the wait! This year I have dramatically increased my live dramas, but I will usually wait until the drama is halfway through airing before I start it. That way I don’t have to wait too much, and I can still watch older dramas at the same time to fill in the gaps.

          I just love seeing the changes dramas have gone through over the last 10 years, so I think it keeps things a bit more fresh by cycling in the older dramas. I also think I may have every drama ever created on my plan to watch list, lol, so I have to keep chipping away at it🙂
