I only completed two dramas in September (I’m just about done with Mr. Sunshine though!), but they were wonderful! I thoroughly enjoyed the new drama My ID is Gangnam Beauty, and the older Jang Geun Suk and IU drama Pretty Man really won my heart:
Pretty Man was such a fun drama! It leans towards being a romantic comedy, but it has a pretty nice melodramatic side. I just loved the characters in Pretty Man with Jang Geun Suk and IU both being humorous and fun. I also really loved watching Jang Geun Suk’s character Ma Te’s journey of growth. He goes through a lot and really changes throughout the drama.
Overall, Pretty Man was a nice treat for me. It took me back to a style of dramas that we don’t see as much anymore, and I found that quite refreshing. It’s meant to be a fun drama, but it still has a nice story and plenty of life lessons for our characters to learn. I thoroughly enjoyed it on many levels. (Pretty Man Review)
My ID is Gangnam Beauty
What a nice drama My ID is Gangnam Beauty turned out to be! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one, but it ended up being a very thoughtful drama that explored some complicated issues including standards of beauty and how society treats people because of their perceptions of beauty.
It executed its story wonderfully to keep me fully engaged and never bored. Mi Rae’s journey is a moving one as she tries to navigate life after plastic surgery and realizes that it brings its own problems. Cha Eun Woo and Lim Soo Hyang were also very sweet as a couple, and I really liked how they helped each other in so many ways.
My ID is Gangnam Beauty was a nice surprise. The topics it addresses are very relevant and relatable, but it’s also a sweet romance. Despite these heavier topics, it never gets overly angsty and remains fun through out. It was such an enjoyable drama, and I’m happy I checked it out. (My ID is Gangnam Beauty Review)
So how was September for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
