Friday Drama Round Up #32

4:11 PM Posted by ninja 1 comment
High Society (K-Drama/ New)
This one wasn't quite what I expected, but I liked the first two episode so far so I am hoping the next two episodes will make this one a winner. 

First Impression will be coming soon. 

 Mask (K-Drama, Aired to Ep. 6)

Do you want money or do you want sanity... one can't seem to have both in this show. Great acting line up, notwithstanding the plot is really kinda depressing. 

My Love Eun-Dong (K-Drama, Aired to Episode 4)

I keep wanting to check this one out and kept backing off since the set up seems like it could possibly not end well. I did watch the first episode and the youth actors are adorable. Just when I decided to gather my courage and keep watching the show a line pops up in the show about a story of two people who meets three times "and it would've been better if they didn't meet the third time." That, send me running away screaming. I think I am going to hold off on this one until it finishes. Yes... I am a chicken. 
When I See You Again (T-Drama/ Airing Episode 3 this week)

I enjoyed the second episode even more than the first. The two leads have great chemistry and while the story is not moving at a super fast clip but somehow the hour goes by really fast. 

Episode 2 Recap: HERE
Save the Family (K-Daily, Aired to Ep. 22)
I am enjoying this K-Daily quite a bit. The two leads are slowly falling in love but has no clue of course... which is always my favorite part to watch. 

Journey of Flower (C-Drama/New)

Wallace Huo and Zhao Li Ying's new drama. It has EPIC C-fantasy written all over it... but I believe this one has a happy ending so for those who is allergic to sad endings like me you can watch it without too much fear (crossing my fingers!). 
Lonely Gourmet (C-Drama/New)

This show is based on a Japanese Manga/show that is also of the same name. The main character pretty much wonders around (Taiwan for this version) eating great food. There really is not much plot other than some short anecdote involving people the main character meets along the way. This show is made for Chinese tourist from China visiting Taiwan so just be warned that some of the restaurant featured seems to charge way more than what the locals would pay for a good meal. 

Oldies (well... not exactly) but Goodies Recommendation 
 Drama: Feast of the Gods (2012)

Synopsis: Continuing on the battle of the previous generations, two girls battle to become the heir to the prestigious Arirang, a traditional Korean restaurant. So expect lots of delicious looking food made even better with the presence of two great male leads (Lee Sang Woo and Joo Sang Wook).  

Just a warning though, the story is mostly about the growth of the heroine so the romance is more the subtle kind. Although, both male leads are great and I would watch this show again just to watch Lee Sang Woo's character again. 
Lee Sang Woo meets our heroine while working as the youngest maknae in Arirang's kitchen. As the maknae, Lee Sang Woo's character is ordered around by the other kitchen chefs and does all the grunt work. In reality, Lee Sang Woo's character is actually a world famous chef who always wears a mask so no one knows what he looks like. Awesome set up isn't!

  1. Heya, Ninja! Happy friday!
    Sorry for the hiatus. BTW, I liked High Society's opening week, because, just as you said, it was so different from what I was expecting.
    I TOTALLY miss Ex-Girlfriends' Club, and I dont think I can ever forgive the dramagods for the premature demise of that show!
    And, I didnt see Producers mentioned in this post. But I'm heads-over-heels in love with the drama! *squee* Things have started to look up now, though we're still kept in the dark when it comes to lovelines. Anyways I wrote an Impression on the first seven episodes. I guess I'll follow up with the rest once the drama is done.
