Folks, we have a highly anticipated debut this week which I almost forgot about. It’s Okay It’s Love starts this Wednesday, and I think I’ve never seen Gong Hyo Jin look so beautiful. Just look at her:
Two thumbs up for the show’s hair and make-up, though I have a feeling lip gloss will be slathered all over on Jo In Sung. I doubt I’ll watch this one live since I’m hooked on Fated To Love You, but still…the pretty will be a powerful pull in this one. And not just with the actors too–I drool at all the frolicking under the Okinawa sunshine. Continue reading
This may be an unpopular opinion but I don’t think Mirae’s Choice sucked as much everyone believes. (By everyone, I mean at least the majority of the English-speaking K-drama blogosphere. And the general Korean public as well judging by the poor ratings.) Fine, that sounds like everyone but I’m pretty sure there’s got to be a least a handful who agree with me! Continue reading
Annyeong! How did dramaland treat you this week? Mine felt pretty blah, so I marathoned School 2013 and I think I’ve found my vote for the year’s best drama! In other K-drama news…

Mirae’s Choice feels like a rather odd creature–it’s madcap yet whimsical, it’s very plot-driven but has taken immense care to flesh out it’s main characters, and it’s a conventional rom-com yet tackles some real world and serious issues. It’s taken awhile for me to appreciate the show, and I’m still at the stage of admiring this from a distance rather than falling hard for its numerous charms, but that’s no fault of the show. This show has so much to offer, that I’m wondering why I’m not cheerleading this more than I am. Have I lost my mind?
THIS: This seals the deal, guys.

Because it’s not like there’s a shortage of dramas this cycle, what with the Heirs juggernaut being only the tip of the drama iceberg. But Mirae’s Choice (or Marry Him If You Dare) has surely but steadily snuck up on me. First there was the news of Lee Dong Gun’s comeback, and the premise of a time-travelling rom-com on our hands.
