It is hard as hell to explain the amazingness of this show. This is show is light and intense at the same time. It has amazing fighting scenes and great backgrounds. If I were to make a list of the most amazing Korean shows, this will definitely be on it. What made the show light was the funny, cute teasing relationship between the two leads. I really love the concept of ghosts and shamans in the show and it was all acted out beautifully. If you are craving for a show with the right balance of fighting, ghostly stuff, and a funny but beautiful relationship, this show is the right one for you. And for those who hate love triangles, feel relieved as there are none in this show.

A piece of advice to people wanting to watch K-dramas. Shows with Nam Joo Hyuk are always worth it(even though I didn’t like the school nurse files). The cast and acting were near perfect. The story, the plot, and the twists kept you glued to the screen. The relations between the characters were the one thing that just perfected the show for me. A water god in the human world gave you lots of chances to laugh especially when the male lead is treated not-so-nicely by humans, an attitude he was not accustomed to. This is one of those shows that always have to come on your bucket list and I am not the only one who thinks that. This show has really high ratings and reviews so it wouldn’t hurt to check out a perfectly amazing show

I loved this show. There are no right words to describe the vibes I got from this show and how I felt while watching it. Both main characters were surprisingly great and lovable. Thankfully, the male lead wasn’t an asshole(he was actually my favorite character). I absolutely fell in love with him. I especially liked how they fully trust each other and that there is no stupid melodrama(like leaving for the sake of the other person and stuff..).They were both were so cute and they totally deserved the ending they got. There were many small details in the show (not common in k-dramas) that made the show even better!!. I watched it when it was airing, believe me when I say it was torture waiting for the next episode. I liked this show way too much. Even though I didn’t like certain support characters(only two, they were Oh In Hyung and Choi Jae Joon), I loved the rest of them. This show was simply wonderful. It honestly couldn’t have been better. Just a heads up, The first episode is kind of…………eekh so don’t give up on the show and at least watch the first five episodes and then decide. It does seem like every other cliche show in the beginning but the characters change and so does the story.

Nirvana In Fire 2..

Xiao Ping Zhang and Xiao Ping Jing are the talented sons of Xiao Ting Sheng, the Prince of Changlin and general of the Liang dynasty’s most powerful army. Ping Zhang is the eldest and heir of Changlin, while Ping Jing is carefree and receives teachings from the master of Langya Hall in Jianghu. The Changlin Manor exists, first and foremost, for the people of Da Liang. They are greatly respected and trusted by the current and past emperor and they act with high integrity and loyalty to the country. However, some worry that the Changlin Manor is gaining too much power and favor, and there are those with old grudges to repay. As such, shadowy plots battle once again with righteous conduct in this sequel, as familial ties, moral values, ambition, and coming-of-age themes take the protagonists through a tumultuous road to finding themselves.

After watching Nirvana In Fire and leaving it mid-way(because I found it too boring) I came across this show. I definitely did not want to try and watch the first season so I directly started watching this which is the second season. As it turned this show was something of a spin-off so it really didn’t need me to watch the first season to understand it. I TOTALLY LOVED THIS SHOW. I haven’t seen this type of Chinese historic show before and its vibe was just totally different. Throughout the show, I was just stuck to the screen in awe. The characters, the story, the plotline everything pulled me and just made me feel what the characters were feeling. This show is totally something worth putting on your watchlist. Just trust me on this. If you are into Chinese historic shows, nothing can keep you falling in love with this show.

Empress Ki

A Korea-born warrior girl had to be a servant at the Mongol Yuan court but somehow overcame her low status to become an empress in another land

Trailer Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncXB-VQxzig

(could not find an official trailer so the link above is of a fan-made trailer I think)

Empress Ki was a show I started watching because of Ji Chang Wook because I think his acting is awesome. I was constantly wondering who the first and second lead was because the show went like that. I didn’t hate the love triangle all that much. I only hated the fact that the second lead had to suffer so much because of them. The show was the first that I watched which had a THAT kind of ending so it affected me quite a lot and it made the show quite memorable for me. The show was pretty amazing. The female is so strong, the hardships of a puppet king are clearly shown through this show(not that I for even a second had respect for them), the struggles of the inner palace, and the difficulties of life are pretty clear. So yeah definitely watch-worthy.This show was the one that made me interested in Korean historic shows.

Hotel Del Luna

When he’s invited to manage a hotel for dead souls, an elite hotelier gets to know the establishment’s ancient owner and her strange world.

Trailer Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJ3_1v8sB48

I watched this show quite a while ago. The show was pretty fun to watch. With its hilarious scenes and awesome characters, it is hard to not fall in love with the show. I love the female lead’s character. From her past to the present and her love for spending money, she was amazing in every way. I like her powerful character and her bad-tempered personality. Her character wasn’t perfect in the least but I loved her attitude. Her character just asks viewers to make memes of her. The male lead was a bit proud since he graduated from Harvard. It wasn’t the annoying type of pride, it was a different kind, like when someone downplays you a lot and you become like I am not all that bad and useless, I graduated from Harvard for god’s sake. Both leads put together are like an explosion, the good kind of explosion. They bicker a lot and give you lots of chances to laugh and in the total present a really good show that people wholeheartedly enjoy. The actress IU did a really really good job at giving her character life.

The Untamed

This fan made trailer describes the first 15 episodes(it doesn’t contain spoilers): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt0PFf2CWCI&list=PLYyjUXSU-RlFjPj-jrbLvI2nJwBWuNHk4&index=7&t=11s

I have made a post for this before but I felt like it didn’t do the show justice so because this is my most favorite show(as I have come to realize), I am making another post. For plot and official trailer you can search that post in my blog

Why The Untamed Is My Favorite Show and What I Felt When I was Watching It

I have already watched The Untamed two times since I first watched it about 6 months ago. In the first 15 episodes, I was a bit impatient, I will refrain from telling why so I can keep this post spoiler-free but you will agree too if you watch the first 2,3 episodes. However, that impatience doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy the show during that time. I laughed like crazy and most of my favorite scenes are from there which I sometimes watch on youtube. So during the first 15 episodes, I found the show pretty fun and chill and not as serious as it becomes later. Wei Ying’s joking personality especially makes you laugh and Lan Zhan’s reaction to his jokes is priceless! As the show progressed the story becomes tragic. The plot progresses to a more difficult time in the characters’ life and things get even harder for them. My love for the show truly deepened then. The stand Wei Ying took made me admire, respect, and understand his character. Wei Ying and Lan Zhan just made me fall in love with the show and them. The show is subtle and that gave it beauty which I dearly admire. In my heart, no show can ever compare to The Untamed no matter how amazing it is. while watching the show, I was totally in awe. It was not just one thing that made me feel that way. It was everything, the plot, the acting, the story, the message it gave, the happy moments, the sad moments, the moments that made me cry and laugh, and most of all the beautiful wondrous characters. The show was pretty angst.
I loved the show so much that I even watched its cartoon and novel version. I still like the show version best.
I think I have expressed how much I love this show and what a great deal it means to me through this post. It would mean the world to me if other people come to realize how amazing the show is.
The Untamed had such a deep effect on me that I became a fan of Wang Yi Bo and began to admire the kind of personality Xiao Zhan has.

Doctor Romantic

“Romantic Doctor Kim” is a “real doctor” story set in a small, humble hospital called Dol Dam Hospital. It is a story about people who meet Kim Sa Bu (Han Suk Kyu), a genius doctor, and discover “real romance.”

By romance in the synopsis, it means the things we live for, people who are sentimental and live while shouldering each other

Trailer Link: (was unable to find)

When this show was recommended by my sister, I thought it was some Rom-Com but it wasn’t. The name doctor romantic has much more meaning to it. The show was so deep that it awed me. I took my time with this show and watched it while really and actually enjoying it. This is the first medical show I have watched and I think because of this awesome show, I’ll watch more. The characters are so…..good. There are literally no other words to describe them. I have not gotten this feeling of contentment and peace for a while when watching shows and I am glad this show reminded me of a lot of stuff. The show is surprisingly light and deep and that mixture just makes a feeling appear in your heart and it makes you love the story so so much. So my conclusion is that I wish I had watched this show earlier and I will definitely watch it again. You guys seriously will love it. Especially the character of Yoon Seo Jeong. She was the character I liked most and looked up to. I liked Kang Dong Joo at the very beginning of the show and then the later episode. The character of Master Kim is so inspirational and he has such a cool mentor vibe so i loved the kind of person he was. So this is a show you can’t miss. I heard this show has season 2 as well so I am very excited about it!! See you later………….
