Well, April was another wonderful month all around. All my dramas were full of heart while each being different from one another. They range from a ratings giant to those that fell way behind and everything in between. But they were all special in their own way. I watched four new dramas, a web drama, and a drama special. So that’s six dramas this month:
Descendants of the Sun sure was a fun ride! While it’s not the best drama I’ve ever seen, it really is an awesome drama. It had plenty of action, melodrama, and a nice dose of humor on the side. It gave lots of opportunities for our heroes to draw closer together while keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.
Descendants of the Sun was a nice change of pace due to the setting, army elements, and the wide range of difficulties our characters face. I really enjoyed Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo as a couple and getting to experience their trial-filled love story was wonderful. Descendants of the Sun is a drama that will likely be remembered by many for a long time to come. (Descendants of the Sun Review)
What a wonderful drama Madame Antoine was! It took me a few episodes to really get into it, but then it just got better and better all the way to the end. It’s a drama filled with fun, quirky characters and full of so much heartwarming goodness.
Add in some comedy as well some deeper reflection into the desires, pain, and emotions of people, and you have one fabulous drama. I always love Han Yi Seul, but I developed a new appreciation for the talented Sung Joon.
It brought to light so many difficult issues that our characters were dealing with. I loved seeing them all come together as a sort of family at the Madame Antoine Café. On the surface, Madame Antoine is a simple romantic comedy, but for me, it went so much deeper. I’m so glad I got to experience such an amazing drama. (Madame Antoine Review)
Moorim School had an interesting fantasy premise that included the use of some magic. It has its own little mystery to unveil as our students have to grow and mature. Add in a wonderful bromance between Lee Hyun Woo and Hong Bin as well as a sweet romance with Lee Hyun Woo and Seo Ye Ji, and it made for a nice drama.
Moorim School definitely has plenty of flaws, but this is one of those dramas that just clicked with me. The story is a bit cheesy, but also refreshing and different. The acting is decent, but not the best. I loved the school setting along with the fantasy premise. It almost had a nostalgic feel to it that reminded me of shows I watched in my early teens.
It’s a great story if you enjoy themes such as friendship, loyalty, and good overcoming evil. If you can just sit back and enjoy the little fantasy world it creates and just go with it, Moorim School is an enjoyable ride. (Moorim School Review)
I didn’t love Come Back Ahjussi, but for the most part I enjoyed it. It definitely has a very interesting and unique story that was pretty well executed. Each of our guys had people they loved and needed to help when coming back to earth. I found the first half of the drama a bit slow, and it just didn’t move like I had hoped it would. Things definitely improved in the second half though, and I was much more engaged.
Overall, the comedy is great, the actors are wonderful, and the story is interesting. With so many pluses, I can see why people might enjoy it a lot more than I did and may feel completely different about the first half of the drama. I don’t regret watching it at all because I did get a good amount of enjoyment from it, and I’m pleased with the overall direction it went. (Come Back Ahjussi Review)
This 3 episode drama special was such a joy, and how I wish it would have been a full length drama. But I’m thrilled with what we got. Kim So Hyun and Ji Soo were all kinds of adorable together. They are both talented actors and their skills were on display.
I also really enjoyed the dynamic that Shin Jae Ha added to the mix. Page Turner was inspirational and heartwarming with characters that make you root for them. All in all, it was a great little drama. (Page Turner Review)
Click Your Heart is an interactive web drama consisting of 7 episodes averaging about 12 minutes each where you get to decide which of four different attractive guys you want high school student Mina to end up with.
This cute little fluff drama was very sweet with a nice dose of humor. The interactive concept is really fun, and it was neat getting to decide what direction you want the story to go in. Click Your Heart is a great concept, and I really enjoyed it. I would love to see more intereactive dramas like this in the future. (Click Your Heart Review)
As you can see, I enjoyed my April dramas! Madame Anotione has a special place in my heart for sure. I also loved Descendants of the Sun and Moorim School. The shorter dramas were cute, and Come Back Ahjussi was very intriguing. So I’m very pleased with how April turned out.
For the month of May, I hope to complete Heartstrings, Shut Up Flower Boy Band, and a couple of others.
So how was April for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
