Final Review: Hometown Cha-cha-cha

Hometown started off as your typical rom-com. City Girl ends up as a fish out of water in a small rural town and meets Country Boy. However, the show eventually evolved (or devolved?) into a sort of long drawn advertisement of sorts. With the “PPL” being Gongjin City (or any rural small town). We have... Continue Reading →

Yumi’s cells: Inside Out

For the sake of those cutesy little “cells”, I hope Yu-mi and Koo Woong have a happy ending. When I first started on Yumi, I felt a bit of disorientation. Cos I was sitting there wondering why in the world am I watching a show that is somewhat similar to my 5yo preschooler’s cartoons? Even... Continue Reading →

Review: Great Shaman Ga Doo-shim

Not sure if it is due to Netflix’s influence, but I have been seeing an increase of short (i.e. less than the usual 16eps) Kdramas on air. Granted, Shaman is on a smaller internet TV channel, so it probably does not have the production capital of larger, and traditional TV stations such as KBS and... Continue Reading →

Drama Review – You Raise Me Up (Wavve, 2021)

I thought this would be a pure rom-com so I was actually surprised at the eventual message about social stigmas (no, it's not about erectile dysfunction). Show is short and sweet at eight episodes, and we follow the changes Do Young-shik (Yoon Shi-yoon) went through to regain his self-confidence, after years of subconscious self-loathing and... Continue Reading →

Final Review: Police University

Despite it getting a little maudlin at the end, Police generally still score a B or B+ in terms of watchability. I enjoyed the earlier parts of the narrative immensely, when Dong-man and Sun-ho learn from each other and learn to trust each other. The budding camaraderie between the police recruits are fun to watch... Continue Reading →

Final Review: Undercover (JTBC, 2021)

Personally, I find the story progress of this drama very slow even when watching at 2x, as the story background seemed a bit thin for a 16-episode drama, resulting the story to be much overstretched.  I was initially quite excited about this drama due to the cast, became disappointed after a couple of episodes, partly... Continue Reading →

Final Review: Mine (tvN, 2021)

I had finished watching this drama quite some time ago, but only found time now to write this review. To be honest, I cannot quite remember the details for this drama, and probably can only spoil you with the endings. It happened that Seo Hi-soo (Lee Bo-young) found that the new tutor Kang Ja-kyung (Ok... Continue Reading →
