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
High School King of Savvy, Episodes 13-17: An Unexpected Ending Written by Laverne On August 13, 2014
High School King of Savvy has come to an end and what started out as a wacky comedy quickly became so much more. The last five episodes contained many plot threads, some which worked better than others.
Hyung-seok’s brief appearance and scheme to ruin CEO Yoo’s company were rushed. Although Seo In-guk was brilliant and completely convincing as both Min-seok and Hyung-seok, High School King could have explored Hyung-seok’s relationships more.
The brothers’ few scenes together were emotionally charged but unfortunately, Hyung-seok was never given that much depth. In fact, the reversal of his scheme seemed out of character from what little we had been shown of him
Marriage, Not Dating, Episodes 1-4: Multiple Barrels of Laughs Written by Lo On August 13, 2014
Marriage, Not Dating, where have you been all my life? No, seriously, this is the show that I have been desperately waiting to see for since I got into dramas. It’s quirky, addictive, and balls out high-larious.
Marriage, Not Dating, is what happens when you take Boys Over Flowers, remove the soap and pureness of love, and replace it with wacky hijinks and some truly devious plots and plans. Joo Jang-mi, played by Han Groo, is a department store salesgirl who has decided to pop the question. Unfortunately, while Jang-mi was in this relationship for the long haul, her boyfriend, Lee Hoon-dong (Heo Jung-min), was decidedly not. When faced with an overly-devoted girlfriend, Hoon-dong calls for aid from his best friend, Gong Ki-tae
“It’s Okay, That’s Love” Episodes 1-4: Sex, Stigma and Squishy Written by Alolika On August 12, 2014
Once upon a time, I used to watch back-to-back K-dramas, gobbling up anything and everything it offered as long as it was packed with good-looking characters. Then I started thinking responsibly, and ended up not watching any for the past three years.
Returning to the K-drama scene after such a long time; however, has not left me disappointed because the current K-drama trend seems to be refreshingly experimental, or so implies SBS‘s It’s Okay, That’s Love with its commendable attempt at dealing with stigma-ridden psychiatric disorders encompassed within a seemingly simplistic story of love and empathy.
Spoilers ahead. Proceed with care.
If opposites attract, then author of best-selling mystery novels, Jang Jae-yeol (Jo In-sung), and exemplary psychiatrist, Ji Hae-soo (Gong Hyo-jin), are definitely not getting together because both of them are way too similar
