Secret Garden

2011 dramaland started with a crash with “Secret Garden,” and catapulted Hyun Bin’s recognition around a world. “Secret Garden” single-handedly started a anticipation disturb in a universe of kdramas.

While it’s eventually a Cinderella story – a bad lady ends adult marrying a king – “Secret Garden” went about it with a lovely take, involving physique switcheroos. If we suspicion switching bodies with Mom was freaky in “Freaky Friday,” theory how frightful – blemish that, waggish – it was when a integrate find themselves in any other’s body!

49 days

“49 Days” was a constrained melodrama that authorised viewers to simulate behind to their lives. If we had a possibility to demeanour during your life after we died, would we be confident with a approach we lived it? Are your friends truly someone we can trust and count on or extraneous acquaintances? “49 Days” started with death. Everyone during one indicate in their lives has substantially wondered who will weep for them after their dead. Well, this play is a story about how a immature woman, Shin Ji Hyun, looks by her life from someone else’s eyes and realizes a profanation of her friends and fiancé.

The play focuses on a fact that, instead of a switheroo between lovers, dual contest strangers change souls. The tract that a chairman is hexed by another person’s essence and that 3 drops of tears can reincarnate a soul’s remains is truly a fantasy. However, a executive thesis is still deeply secure in existence – it’s a story about interpersonal relations and life and death.

The Greatest Love

Hong Sisters have finished it again. “The Greatest Love” was funny, pun-ny, and witty, as approaching from a Hong Sisters, and one of a many dear rom-com dramas of this year. For dual months, Dokko Jin brought smiles (and chills) to his fans with his cheesy lines and singly Dokko Jin’s audacity – no, charms.

Gu Ae Jung was once a many renouned member of lady organisation “National Treasure Girls.” Fast brazen to 10 years, she’s a cleared out luminary who everybody loves to hate. Despite her accessible and industrious personality, she has a tough time warming adult to a public. With so many statue stars these days and ever-increasing voice of a open with a widespread use of a internet, a play showed viewers how netizens/fans’ actions (and comments) can deeply harm celebrities.

City Hunter

Based on a Japanese manga by Hojo Tsukasa, “City Hunter” was so many some-more than a elementary reprisal drama. It had a formidable web of stories – that were dark, thrilling, heart-wrenching, and regretful – that built Lee Yoon Sung into a City Hunter he is today. It also alluded to some of a society’s stream issues like half-tuition for college students and industrial accidents all a while emphasizing a stress of a simple beliefs – faith and probity – and a significance of support them.

The uncover had it all – good actors, good plot, good cinematography, good score, a works. Not once was there ever a “boring” impulse or stage where we wanted to press a fast-forward button. All a relations between Yoon Sung and a characters, and not only a one between him and Nana (btw Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young favourite a adore line between their characters so much, they motionless to turn a genuine life integrate ^^), were enthralling. Yoon Sung and daddy beloved Jin Pyo common and satisfied that their bond was thicker than blood – once they were means to get pass a fact that Jin Pyo kidnapped, lied, and manipulated Yoon Sung. Shik Joong ajusshi was some-more of a confidant/motherly/wife(?) figure to Yoon Sung. While they constantly, and utterly amusingly, “fought” over all a home selling like a married couple, Yoon Sung could always count on Shik Joong to be there when he indispensable him. Yoon Sung and Prosecutor Kim Young Joo had so many in common – both were victims of a prior generation’s actions, both attempted to mangle giveaway from their father’s shadows and control, and both had a clever clarity of probity – despite disproportion ideas as to grasp justice. Despite being “enemies,” a dual honestly reputable any other, and had they met in any other circumstances, they could have common a good bromance. Yoon Sung and Nana? What some-more is there to say…^ ^

Stars: Lee Min Ho, Park Min Young, Lee Joon Hyuk, Goo Hara (KARA), and Hwang Sun Hee


“You’re Beautiful” fans rejoiced when they listened CNBlue’s Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye reunited for “Heartstrings.” While a play was tormented with singular number ratings in Korea, “Heartstrings” built a clever fan bottom overseas. Earlier this year, it edged out “City Hunter” and “Secret Garden” to win a pretension “Best Korean Drama” on

There positively was a fresh, childish vibe to a play with pleasing sceneries and good looking cast. For many of a run in Korea, it was overshadowed by a pristine epicness of “City Hunter.” However, a predicted storyline authorised viewers to suffer a foolish hour of eye candy. Don’t take me wrong, I’m not being sarcastic. It was a good mangle from all a meditative concerned in presaging “City Hunter’s” tract and recuperating from a whiplash of a astonishing twists and turns. “Heartstrings” starred Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye as campus sweethearts in an chosen humanities and song college.
