Hello everyone. I know a lot of you has been waiting for me to post an update for Korean dramas. I truly apologize for not posting anything for the longest time. I have been busy since I moved to the US. The funny part, though I haven’t posted an update yet, but I have been watching Korean dramas since I got here. Without further ado, here’s the second part of my list. Click here to check out my first (long!) list if you still haven’t.
P.S. I always write my short reviews in a simple way. It’s always based on how I feel about the dramas. If you can’t see a drama listed in here, either I haven’t posted it yet, or I haven’t watched it yet, or I just simply don’t like that drama.
Gong Yoo as Kim Shin (939 years old, goblin)
Kim Go Eun as Ji Eun Tak (19, human bride)
Lee Dong Wook as Wang Yeo (late 30s, grim reaper)
Yoo In Na as Kim Sun / Sunny (mid-late 20s)
Yook Sung Jae as Yoo Duk Hwa (mid-late 20s)
My Short Review: THIS! If you haven’t watched this yet, please do! Goblin definitely made it to my number one spot of my favorite Korean dramas of all time. I don’t have any complaints at all, it’s perfect even with its flaws. The plot, cinematography, the chemistry between the cast, the bromance, and of course, I love how it doesn’t have a cringe-worthy love triangle. I truly love the writer of this drama, Kim Eun Sook. She is also the one who penned Descendants of the Sun, The Heirs, A Gentleman's Dignity, Secret Garden, and Lovers in Paris which happened to be all my favorites.

My Short Review: I cried so much when this show ended. This truly hits a home run. Such a feel-good journey from start to finish, and with a perfect happy ending. I love how the storyline tackles topics that most of us have been through at one time or another – first love, one sided love, breaking up/heartbreak, fighting with friends, a sick family member, and more. These things are what most of us are experiencing on daily basis. Cast wise, I can’t express enough how wonderful I thought the acting was, not just the main leads, but all the actors in this drama truly gave life to their roles. The chemistry between them, Lee Sung-kyung and Nam Joo-hyuk, is too damn real! I truly wish they would date in real life. Haha! I could honestly go on and on about how awe-mazing this drama is, and never run out of positive things to say. If you haven’t watched this yet, please do!
