Ninja's Friday Drama Round Up #78Master of Revenge or God of Noodles (Korean Drama, New)
Chun Jung Myung's new revenge drama. Kim Sung Joo plays the super villain in tn this one and boy, is he scary. This one is still in the backstory setting up stage but all the main characters have been quite intriguing thus far. Entertainer (Korean Drama)
I am happy to report that episode three & four were a marked improvement over the first two episodes! If you haven't checked this out one yet then be patient through the Jerry Maguire first episode and give it until episode three before you make a decision on Entertainer.
Marriage Contract (Korean Drama, Just ended)
I am ashamed to admit that I bailed on this one pretty soon after I realized this might be a sob feast sort of story BUT Mama Ninja stuck with it and loved it so for those who don't might a little tears you might be ready to jump in.
Ruby Lin and Jia Nai Liang's new time travel romance drama. I checked out the first two episode and was pleasantly surprised by the show's comedic vibe despite it's rather tragic backstory. I can't quite declare this one a winner yet until I watched a few more episodes, but it does seem fairly promising.
Road to the North (Chinese Drama, Pretty New)
Hawick Lau's latest revenge romance. Planning to check this one out soon...just for Hawick Lau.
Omukae Desu (Japanese Drama, New)
A wacky new J-drama about a high school's boy's second job as Death's helper. With his new found ability of seeing spirits, our hero allows himself to be possessed in order to let the spirits finish their last wishes before they depart from this world.
Judging by the first episode, Omukae Desu is a fun show with plenty of heart warming stories.Love at Seventeen (Taiwanese Drama)
Our two leads finally meet again after being apart for 13 years! Can't wait for this week's new episode.
Up Coming Drama:
So it looks like Taiwan will be coming out with a remake of Ariel Lin and Joe Chen's It Started With a Kiss (based on a Japanese manga Itzaura na Kiss). I personally consider this to be a very brave attempt since the Ariel Lin and Joe Chen's version was quite beloved by many so the bar is going to be set quite high.
Dino Lee (Singer/actor) will be playing the hero while Esther Wu (show host/actress) is playing the heroine's role. This drama will be the first time Dinao Lee and Esther Wu are in a leading role so it will be interesting to see how they do. FYI, back when Ariel Lin and Joe Chen did It Started With A Kiss they were pretty new as well. I guess using up coming new comers is becoming a tradition for this show.
The New It Started With a Kiss started filming on April 21st and it's schedule to air this year.
