Korean Drama Update for December 2020

Start-Up Korean Drama - Nam Joo Hyuk and Suzy

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)

Start-Up Korean Drama - Nam Joo Hyuk and SuzyStart-Up

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!

    December 2020 drama update:

    Start-Up: I was not planning to watch this, but I started it after reading some positive reviews. I liked the optimistic tone and the characters of Grandma and Do San.

    Do You Like Brahms?: It is slow and soothing. I thought that even the angsty stretches were comforting. It was refreshing to see a drama about introverts set in the world of classical music.

    Currently watching:
    Kairos – so well written! Shing Sung Rock is excellent. There is no romance, but the mystery is so complicated and intriguing.

    Chuno – an epic rewatch in every sense of the word. I enjoy reading the comments of fans from around the world.

    Happy New Year!!!

      Start-Up was such a fun and positive drama. I really liked it. I need to check out Do You Like Brahms?. Not sure if it will be too slow for me, but the comforting tone and story of introverts along with classical music has me wanting to give it a try 🙂

      I have heard good things about Kairos too. It is next on my list after I finish my current dramas. I haven’t been re-watching Chuno, but I have been keeping up with all of the comments over on kfangurl’s site. It’s al lot of fun!

      Happy New Year to you too Snow Flower! 🙂

    I had a more producting kdrama viewing month that should be allowed! New Year’s Resolution should be to watch less and do more IRL but doubt I’ll be able to stick to that with so many great dramas on the schedule 😉

    Got in two more dramas by the end of 2020: Start-Up (9/10) and Saimdang (7.5/10).
    My favorite is none other than Start-Up. Hehehe.
    I loved how hopeful and charismatic Start-Up is. I really really liked each character and its development. I also loved romantically shipping with the right boat right from the start of the show. #TeamDoSanForever<3.
    While I'm not quite sure how I really felt about Saimdang, and having watched historicals always have me the regrettable tendencies. Hehe. However, on the good note, I liked the family drama vibes of Saimdang that is set in historical. It's quite new for me. While I'm not that into the romance between our main leads, there were some supporting characters that I really liked – like Whiemdang and her husband. 😍

      Oooh, you squeezed in a couple more! I’m glad you loved Start-Up too. It was wonderful! It really was a positive drama packed with feels. And yes, thankfully you got on the right ship! I did too, and it makes a world of difference ❤

      I haven’t seen Saimdang yet. I love historicals, but it sounded kind of slow. It’s still on the list though 🙂
