It’s Okay, It’s Love (2014)

Gwaenchanhah, Sarangiya (original title)

Stars: Gong Hyo Jin, Jo In Sung, Do Kyung Soo, Sung Dong Il

A love story between a psychiatrist and an author who had schizophrenia.

★★★☆☆

Obviously, nag-marathon ako ng mga drama ni Gong Hyo Jin. Ang ganda ng start nito, promising. Maganda din ang soundtracks. Ang ganda ng settings, ng quality ng shots, ng aesthetics in general. Pero like any other k-drama, parang meron silang mundong umiikot lang sa kanila kung saan (halos) halat sila may issues na related sa theme ng drama (syempre). At bakit lagi na lang may annoying quality ang character ni unnie Hyo Jin wae wae wae.

Haereul poomeun dal (original title)

Stars: Kim Soo Hyun, Han Ga In

The story of the secret love between Lee Hwon, a fictional king of Joseon, and Wol, a female shaman. Wol was born as Heo Yeon Woo, the daughter of a noble family who won the love of the crown prince, Hwon. Her enemies, jealous of her family’s position in court, schemed against her, wrestled away her rightful place as crown princess, and nearly took her life. Years later, an embittered Hwon meets Wol, now a female shaman with no recollection of her past.

★★★☆☆

Gist: Sobrang pogi at talino kasi ng oraboni ni female lead kaya ginawa ni princess lahat para mapangasawa sya kaya inalay sya sa black magic ritual para patayin si female lead para hindi siya ang maging reyna. Nagkagulo sila dahil.sa pogi.

Reply 1997 (2012–2013)

Eungdabhara 1997 (original title)

Set in the 1990’s, the drama centers around a female high school student Shi Won, who idolizes boyband H.O.T, and her 5 high school friends in Busan. As the timeline moves back and forth between their past as 18-year-old high schoolers in 1997 and their present as 33-year-olds at their high school reunion dinner in 2012, where one couple will announce that they’re getting married.

★★★☆☆

I think Reply 1988 is so much better. This one focused too much on the fandom culture.
