Visits to imaginary worlds and beyond
I've got back to watching Korean & Japanese dramas after a few months break.|
The last drama I watched was The King of Dramas which was very good. It's a bit satirical drama about the drama making industry, weaknesses and passions of people and what is meaningful in life. I truly loved it. The last 3 episodes were a bit too gloomy for my taste and the story might have worked better without some plot twists but all in all I still see the point of them all. The best thing about this drama was of course Antony Kim (played by my all time favourite Korean actor Kim Myung Min <3 <3 <3). Again Kim Myung Min made an absolutely awesome role. He's such a talented actor and I fall for him every time! I also really liked the female lead character Lee Go Eun (played by Jung Ryeo Won) as there was nothing annoying about her and she was in every way very likable (which is not always the case with the female characters in Korean shows). There was lots of humour too especially from Choi Si Won's character who was an obnoxious and utterly silly actor called Kang Hyun Min. This drama is very much worth watching!!!
Another Korean drama I recently watched was "You who came from the stars".
It was about an alien who had lived on Earth for 400 years and was now looking forward to getting back to his planet until he met an actress who reminded him of a girl from his past. What was interesting about this drama was that the main character had super powers which of course made the drama quite different from the other romantic ones. Also the lead female character was quite different this time. She was a very spoilt actress full of herself but also rather vulgar and silly in her private life. Usually the main female characters are more like Cinderella or some tomboyish, eccentric girl who falls for a rich & obnoxious boy. This time it was the girl who was rich and pretty and a bit obnoxious.
I liked this show a lot. It's not probably the best I've seen but good entertainment nevertheless. :)
