Friday Drama Round Up #75

Ninja's Friday Drama Round Up #75

My Little Baby (Korean Drama) 
A light comedy about cop working in the violent crimes department all the sudden forced to become a parent when his little niece is orphaned. Judging by the first episode My Little Baby is not meant to be a serious drama at all but rather a comedy so expect more humor than plot. 
Go Goal Fighting (Chinese Drama, New) 
Hu Ge's new C-drama! Another light drama but this one does have a pretty solid story going for it. 

First Impression: HERE
Jackpot (Korean Drama)
I was wowed by the first two episodes of Jackpot but unfortunately episode 3-4 wasn't quite as enthralling BUT I am going to give it at least one more week in hopes that the story would pick back up again. 
Happy Family (Korean Family Drama)
Our hero finally admits to himself that he likes the heroine!!! I LOVE Lee Sang Woo's tortured but earnest gaze whenever he looks at the heroine. I am kind of ashamed to admit while I keep saying that I like happy dramas...I still like Lee Sang Woo in roles like this one...provided he gets the girl in the end of course. 
Please Come Back, Mister (Korea Drama)
I am feeling torn about this show. The comedy is awesome and I certainly love how wacky Rain is in it, but the plot feels like an eternal mary-go-round with the two "ghosts" constantly taking one step forward and two steps back when it comes to their battle against their respective nemesis. However, there are just enough laugh out loud comedy and heart warming story line to make me stick with Please Come Back, Mister to the end. 
Ms. Temper & Nam Jung Gi (Korean Drama)
This show has turned out to be surprisingly good. I was afraid the plot would be very predicable and up to a point that is kind of true but that doesn't stop the story being good. 
I am planning to do a post on this one next week. 

Oldies but Goodies
 49 Days (Korean Drama, 2011, 20 episodes)

Synopsis: Dazed as she sees her own body being put on an ambulance, Ji Hyun becomes hopeful when an angel (played by Jung Il Woo) informs her that if she can find three people (excluding family) who will shed genuine tears for her then she will be allowed to go back to her body. At first believing that she can easily count on her fiancee and best friend to shed real tears for her, Ji Hyun soon has a rude awakening when she realizes that the fairy tale life she led was all a big lie. 
This show has two heroine really. Nam Gyu Ri plays the ghost who is trying to find three people to cry tears for her while Lee Yo Won is the woman whose body gets possessed by the ghost when she sleeps. 
I feel like it is important to warn you that this show really has two heroines and two heroes. I don't usually care for shows that has that many main characters but 49 Days had a pretty intriguing premise and I felt the writer did a good job in making the viewers move past the romance aspect of the story and really think hard about what living means ...especially to the dead. 

ps. One more warning, I wasn't super enamored with the ending but to be fair it did feel like it fit the story well.
