I got in two wonderful dramas for the end of the year. They were very different from each other but equally fun. It was the fantasy romance Tale of the Nine-Tailed and the rom-com Start-Up that took up December:
Tale of the Nine-Tailed
Tale of the Nine-Tailed is the kind of show that is right up my alley. The fantasy romance elements are strong along with an interesting mystery and plenty of thrills. The drama had a strong opening that drew me into an engaging story. The pacing and plot developments were then good throughout the series.
Lee Dong Wook and Jo Bo Ah were a fun couple with a big romance that spanned centuries. It was a great relationship to watch play out. Kim Bum was also fantastic as one of the villains, and his love/hate bromance with Lee Dong Wook was very entertaining.
Overall, I greatly enjoyed Tale of the Nine-Tailed. Dramas like this are my bread and butter. It’s always nice to see shows like this come together so nicely and treat the audience to such a fun story. (Tale of the Nine-Tailed Review)
I had high hopes for Start-Up because it comes from one of my favorite writers, and she is known for creating worlds filled with wonderful, well-rounded characters and incredibly heart-warming stories. Thankfully, it was another highly enjoyable drama!
On paper, the premise for the show doesn’t sound all that interesting, but I pinned my hopes on the writer and the fantastic cast. It had all of the elements I love with lovable main characters and supporting ones, great character journeys, and an engaging story. Watching all that the characters had to go through to achieve their dreams of creating successful companies was fun to watch.
The romance between Nam Joo Hyuk and Suzy was sweet and meaningful. I got so many feels! Start-Up was such a wonderful drama. It was full of heart and lots of emotion. The drama left me feeling very full and content in the end. (Full Review Coming Soon)
So how was December for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
