My Lovable Girl, Episodes 1-6: Art Imitating Reality Written by Joyce On October 9, 2014
I don’t think any drama has gotten so much hate for its casting, weeks before the drama even hit the small screens. Idol-actors castings are usually unfavourably received, and considering that three-quarters of the main cast are idols, My Lovable Girl (or She’s so Lovable) probably received three times the normal amounts of downvotes right from the start.
And to a certain extent, the critical reaction is not unwarranted. The subpar acting is something to cringe at, and it doesn’t help that the script is terribly cheesy and one-dimensional. Some dialogues are goosebumps-inducing, and romantic music chimes in at certain scenes to attempt to drill into my mind the non-existent chemistry between the lead couple
If a character falls in love with another character"s two distinctive personalities, does that constitute a love triangle? Hyun Bin is about to find out when he returns to the small screen in a romantic comedy tentatively titled "Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde."
The 20-episode comedy will be based on the Lee Choong Ho"s webtoon titled "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Hyun Bin will play a radio disc jockey and writer who has two very different personalities. He"s aloof and cold during the day and warm and charming at night. This makes it more likely that his night personality will inspire people to fall in love with him. But one lucky woman manages to fall in love with both sides of him.
The character who falls in love with both his personalities has not yet been cast
Series Overview: Fated to Love You is a Bundle of Laughter and Tears Written by Joyce On September 20, 2014
On the back of the finale of Fated to Love You, I’d like to say that the show will stay in my memory as the drama with the best character interpretations. It features the reunion of Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara, who starred together in Successful Story of a Bright Girl ten years ago. While Fated‘s plot is nothing out of the ordinary, the characters are really what steal the show and cement it as one of my favourite dramas ever.
If you’ve seen the Taiwanese version, you’d have a good sense of the plot – a one night stand, a pregnancy, a forced marriage, and then, a miscarriage. Cue angst with a capital ‘a’
“My Spring Day” premiered on MBC last week and I was very surprised by its setting. Initially, I found the couple’s pairing a bit odd due to the considerable age gap. However, thinking about it, a rookie actress could find more experience if she plays and learns alongside an experienced actor.
The story uses an interesting concept of cellular memory which is a medical hypothesis implying the recipients’ personalities are inherited from their donors. Will this show be able to make its way into the top ranking charts? Let’s find out. About the cast
Lee Bom Yi (Sooyoung) is a clinical dietitian working in Hae Gil hospital and is dedicated to living her life to the fullest. She is very down-to-earth and her morals are well-placed

Disillusioned by the pettiness of human nature, and a resident of Earth for the past several hundred years, James has a centuries-old rule that he will never use his abilities to intervene in the lives of the people around him.

High School-Love On, Episodes 1-4: Cute and Fluffy Written by Joyce On August 14, 2014
If you, like me, are an ardent Infinite fan, High School – Love On would have been on your radar for a variety of reasons, the most important being that the two lead actors are Woohyun and Sungyeol. For those uninformed, High School is a romance fantasy 20-episoder in a high school setting.
The main premise is that Seul-bi (Kim Sae-ron), who is originally a death angel (think Scheduler from 49 days), becomes human after unintentionally saving Woohyun’s life; she goes to high school, and hijinks happen. Oh and, Sungyeol and Woohyun keep their own names as their character names.
Disclaimer: Spoiler ahead.
Four episodes in, High School strikes me as School 2013 – Fluffy version; I guess high school dramas all fit in roughly the same mold, with a varied amount of angst
