Voices of the Dead Episodes: 11 Genre: Medical, mystery Year: 2009 Starring: Eita, Ishihara Satomi, Ikuta Toma, Endo Yuya, Sato Yuki
Ever wanted a medical drama without the gore? Something that delves into more than just the physical treatment of people? Then this is the drama for you. I was quite curious about Voice – the synopsis at DramaWiki didn’t really say much. Tsk tsk! So let me clear up the mystery in one succinct word: Voice = autopsies.
The Four Hanawa Sisters Episodes: 11 Genre: Romance, comedy, family, drama Year: 2011 Starring: Mizuki Alisa, Kanjiya Shihori, Kawashima Umika, Kichise Michiko, Kato Shigeaki
Okay, okay, so I might’ve watched this drama for Shige ^o^ And was it worth it, or what! I wasn’t quite expecting the emotional ringer this jdrama puts you through; happy or sad, the tears just kept coming.
“I’m just going to trust you. Even if I get used a hundred, a thousand times, I’m just going to trust you. Even if it’s foolish.”
Personal Preference Episodes: 16 Genre: Romance, comedy Year: 2010 Starring: Lee Min Ho, Son Ye Jin, Kim Ji Suk, Wang Ji Hye, Jung Sung Hwa
Lee Min Ho fans across the globe are probably preparing to gouge my eyes out for the low rating. By the end of the kdrama, sure, I was totally in love. Who wouldn’t be? But it took a while for me to be drawn in, so I’m detracting points for that. Otherwise, this is a very sweet and surprisingly complex drama, with hilarious adult humour.
“Even if he’s cold toward me, even if he says things I don’t like… It was nice just being with him.”
Mischievous Kiss / Naughty Kiss Episodes: 16 (+7 SP eps, hosted on YouTube) Genre: Romance, comedy, school Year: 2010 Starring: Jung So Min, Kim Hyun Joong, Lee Tae Sung
Once again, I hesitated watching this drama. I couldn’t decide to go with the Japanese version or the Korean >.< I finally decided on the Korean – its hero is nicer on the eyes. Yes, I admit it: I’m a shallow gal.
This is without a doubt one of the cutest kdramas I have ever seen!
“It’s good to have a big dream. Even if your dream is shattered, the shattered pieces are still big.”
You’ve Fallen for Me Episodes: 15 Genre: Romance, drama, music Year: 2011 Starring: Park Shin Hye, Jung Yong Hwa, Song Chang Ui, So Yi Hyun, Kim Yoon Hye, Kang Min Hyuk, Lee Hyun Jin
Intrigued by Park Shin Hye in You’re Beautiful, I turned another of her kdramas, interested in seeing her play a more feminine role. In Heartstrings, we finally get the happy ending for Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa that we missed in You’re Beautiful. They just make the cutest couple! ^o^
