Keyeast Instagram Updates on Woo Do Hwan

With Kim Soo Hyun enlisting today Keyeast has a charming new face in Woo Do Hwan. Guess I will be seeing much updates about him in Keyeast official instagram from now on. Well this actor has been stealing scenes in dramas like Save Me and now in Mad Dog. No wonder he is the next big actor to look forward to.

[mslee's thoughts] Drama Lovers... It's Raining K-Dramas!

I think this season dramas are pouring in too much that viewers just  have enough room to breathe in between dramas. Like weekdays are full with interesting new stories and even weekends we are treated to new dramas from cable channels like OCN, JTBC and tvN. Then there are still the on going family dramas that we have started to watch when family gatherings at weekend ends. Seriously...kdrama are everywhere and seems to be writers are all in a competition. The best ratings will snatch the win for stories who got more viewers.

Let us start with Monday and Tuesday slot in primetime KST. I am currently watching Temperature of Love with Seo Hyun Jin and Yang Se Jong. Alright let's throw in Kim Jae Wook's name in the list and I have a packed drama with good actors and romantic story with burning chemistry of the leads. The story has reached it's cliffhanging peak last week with both Hyun Jin and Se Jong in a sweet and oh-so-blushing moment kisses that really burns the screens. I thought I would have a follow up on Tuesday night but then...ugh..network decided to cancel the next episode in favor of something. I don't know. I haven't read the news why it was cancelled. I was just waiting the whole day of Wednesday for the subbed version of the episode but no sites where able to provide me with that. My anticipation was like a balloon that got pricked by a needle...boom...air gone!

Then the new drama that stole my attention surprisingly was Because This Is My First Life with Jung So Min and Lee Min Ki. Another Monday and Tuesday drama that can be a match for TOL in my opinion. The opposite personality of the leads are intriguing and interesting at the same time. One is stiff and organized with a stable job while the other is although a struggling writer has a nice and flexible personality but surprisingly has good housekeeping skills that our guy lead is looking for in a roommate. The story has developed into both agreeing into a contractual marriage. First kiss happened in episode 1 and I think romance part of the story will be worth waiting for.

Let's us go to Wednesday and Thursday slot. I started it with While You Were Sleeping but although the story is good and I like the chemistry between Lee Jong Suk and Suzy, somehow I put it on hold beginning week three. I am not sure why I am not really looking forward to the episodes but I am planning on continuing to watch the series later on. So no spoilers for me and I don't plan on reading reviews on it so I will not know how it will end. Just to surprise me.

Mad Dog is a must watch drama for me. Yoo Ji Tae is a reason and then Woo Do Hwan is the add ons so to speak. This young actor who have been a great cast in Save Me is a stealer. And he continues to steal scenes in this new drama Mad Dog which centers on insurance fraud and accidents that involved YJT's family. The drama is quite tough to understand for me because I don't know much about insurance although I know when I see deliberate accidents just to claim for benefits. The conspiracy between an insurance agent and the buyer is one of the theme of the drama and YJT and his team are looking out for this fraudulent transactions. WDH is a character that is layered and full of mystery. By episode 3 he was shown as the brother of the pilot who crashed the airplane that had YJT's wife and son.What else is in store for me as a viewer I will be gladly anticipating.

Friday nights are now showing The Package with Lee Yeon Hee and Jung Yong Hwa.A story of travelling in a tour in France. A story of the different characters in the tour and how their journey will affect relationships. A story of life and a possible death. A story of broken romance and finding your one true fate. The drama is slow paced but I had moments of laughter that I am just glad I am watching it. I love historical places and The Package is bringing me with them to a place in Europe where I have never been and hoping to set foot in the future. Places are beautifully shot. Of course the cinematography is on point. One of the best selling points of the drama are the stories behind these historical places for me, So yeah.. this drama is entertaining enough to be included in my early weekend night drama watch.

Let us start officially my weekend with 2 family dramas that are both cliche' but still captures the essence of what family is all about. First on my list is The Man Who Sets The Table with Soo Young and Oh Joo Wan as the otp. A daughter who has yet to live up to the expectation of her father and a son who has yet to know the secrets about his true father. Both struggling to be successful together. I like the pace of the romance. It's there but they have time to deal with it in a not a hurried manner.  Because there are more important issues in the story that needs to be tackled first. Of course this is a 50 episode series and there is time to take everything in a comfortable stride.

Second is My Golden Life. Park Sii Hoo and Shin Hye Sun are the main otp. Unfortunately they were introduced properly as siblings for her character was that of the long lost daughter of the chaebol family which is HaeSung Group. She had a tough life while he is comfortably running a company as the eldest son of a favorite daughter to the Chairman. There are twists though because she is really not the daughter but JiSoo who grew up as her twin. Their mother lied when she was asked who was the adopted one. The drama scenes with JiAn and her true father always made me tear up. He reminds me of my own father who was always there supporting me as his child. Anyway, the cat and mouse relationship between the otp is fun to watch and the awkwardness is truly there between them. I wonder how will their feelings develop in the future?

Another 2 drama i added are Revolutionary Love and Black. One is a romcom and the other other one while there are also funny scenes was more on fantasy\mystery. Kang So Ra and Choi SiWon both look good together on screen and their dynamics are cute to watch. A chaebol's son who is always in trouble and a struggling woman who lives day to day thru part time work and has a past that concerns her father's death tied up with the company owned by SiWon.

Black is a supernatural drama where a grim reaper possessed a dead body of a human being which is a no..no in their rule but he has to to catch up his runaway partner. Song Seung Hun is hot as the lead male of course. Go Ara has ability to see shadows or death coming. Their paths crossed and not surprisingly in a kdrama, they have a past like they met during their childhood days and she fell in love with him.

There are more dramas not in my current list but I say that with these dramas alone I my entire nights are full there is no room for more. Maybe after one or two ends then I can accommodate new dramas. With WYWS still in the waiting list..my thoughts are all in a jam no wonder I can hardly catch up on updating my blog and share thoughts on dramas I watch.

So you see, drama lovers are in for a treat this season. Because it is raining K-dramas!


(Mslee's thoughts) [GIF] episode 4 Because This Is My First Life Highlights

Episode 4 is basically dealing with the reality that both our leads have decided to agree on a contractual marriage and the consequences of their agreement. It is not just an agreement between the two of them. Yes, they thought of ways to feel comfortable living. Se Hee needs a roommate and now a wife to satisfy his parents desire for him to marry. Ji Ho needs a place to settle in where she will be comfortable and away from home. Hearing Se Hee needs her (well not romantically) still those words had an effect on her self esteem. It could be businesslike in nature but still for the first time she is needed.

If they think it will be as easy as walking at the park then they thought wrong. I mean.. They have families they have to inform.not necessarily ask permission because they are of age. And she comes from a strict family. Her father is not easy to please. They have to plan so everything will be smooth. But of course the moment of truth sometimes is not easy to handle.

Se Hee has to placate her father from outburst after hearing they are living together. He was literally pushed down to his knees hard to say he will not let her hands get wet figuratively. 

Just only then her father seemed to accept this sudden marriage they told him. Now with his family it is more informal. He just have to send his mother with a selfie of him and Ji Ho as his soon to be wife. Even that scene was stiff but brought the laughs for he was so awkward and she was not sure what he was trying to do. Taking photos with him is tough task already.

But everything else aside they are fine with the set up. She has yet to break the secret to her best friends. But it will be hard on Ho Rang though to hear wedding bells from her. She juts had a fight with her boyfriend who seemed very clueless of what a girl wants despite his efforts of giving her what she wants.

That's why there is a saying Man is from Mars and Women from Venus. (Ahmm..am i right? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
Anyway these two lovebirds need to talk and compromise. She can't wait forever while he can't understand her.

I am looking for more interaction between Soo Ji and Se Hee's friend the CEO. They had a past but ironically she does not remember him. Now he kept on bugging her thru phone text and she just blocked him.πŸ˜‚

Ji Ho is the one that when she made uo her mind she will go through with it without looking back. I like her attitude. She can stand up for herself and choose self preservation over a job where she is being coerced to forgive a man who assaulted her. She chose to protect herself than to work with people who does not care of her well being. Good job Ji Ho.πŸ‘

I am looking forward on how Se Hee will transformed into a man who will have reasons to smile. πŸ˜€ throw out that stiffness in him and just start to enjoy life. Ji Ho will certainly spice up his dull life.

[screencaps] episode 8 My Golden Life

In this scene I agree with Do Kyung. It may sound unfair to JiAn because she is still missing her family and old life but she should have also thought of what the members of this family think and feel.

She has decided hence she should abide by her decisions.

To be a part of the family she has to undergo training before she will be revealed to the society. She has schedules on everything.

I am intrigued of a possible past encounter between these two.

Why did he hide? 

I find this totally unbecoming behavior. I mean..if I am a friend in need and I am not asking for your help which clearly JiAn had been I will find this insulting or perhaps too embarrassing.

They only met recently again and I think JiAn is not the type to burden people. He is making her feel uneasy with this action. He acts as if he has the right to do so which is arrogant of him.

And when she refused, still he put the money inside her bag without her knowing.

Another mistake on JiAn's part was thinking of her former family and not think of her new family's feelings. She lost her phone (Do Kyung found it) and she did not think that would probably be looking for her or feel anxious when she can not be reached.

She should have thought that these people had trauma when it comes to the daughter that was taken from them. 

She has no idea while she was lost in thoughts....

She only could say "sorry" for worrying them.

She apologized to Do Kyung.

Her voice mail to her father.

The reason why Ji Tae could not marry his girlfriend...

He is the eldest son and takes care of his family. He wants to be the filial son.

Irony of two mothers sleeping with the wrong child.

When things get more awkward between Do Kyungvand JiAn.

They are not siblings but they don't know it.

How to adjust in a house where everything is taken care of by maids.

A sister who feels tired of her newfound older sister.

The real daughter.

Even this woman knew about the twins. One of them seemed left handed but time had made her memory confused of who between JiAn and JiSoo is.

A clue that could have tell the truth.
JiSoo or JiAn?
But JiSoo was the one in the photo.

Will the truth be revealed?
