Friday Drama Round Up #91

Friday Drama Round Up #91 by Ninja
Doctors (Korean Drama)
I am a couple episodes behind on this one...and sadly I am having a hard time mustering up the interest to catch up. I like the lead characters well enough but the whole revenge plot - the boring part to me, is taking too much of the show's time.

The Mystic Nine (Chinese Drama)
William Chan's hero in this one is so captivating that I pretty much swoon every time he comes on the screen. I still find this one very intriguing but my problem is that I love the hero so much I wish the writer is not spending so much time on the other characters...even if the male second lead really is quite awesome as well. We finally meet Zanilia Zhao Li Ying (hero's love interest) in episode 10 but like I mentioned last week, I really don't think the writer will give the romance too much attention.

Better Man (Taiwanese Daily)
I am really liking this one a whole lot. The writer is doing an impressive job in keeping the plot moving with very few annoying characters one usually come to expect in a daily. I was gone for two weeks on vacation so I had a wonderful time of marathoning the last ten episodes.

Friday Drama Round Up #88 by Ninja
Suizokukan Girl (Japanese Drama, New)
Judging by the first episode this one is going to be one of those light J-motivational drama with a bit of romance thrown in. I am probably going to at least give it one more episode to see if this one is worth following.

Synopsis: Framed by her manager, our heroine ened up getting transferred to work at an aquairm. Feeling completely like an outsider especially with the hero who keeps telling her to leave, our heroine vows to prove herself by winning over one very stubborn dophine.

Love at Seventeen Episode 12 Summary

*Still on my vacation posting schedule so this one (and next week's) will just be a brief summary and thoughts.

Love at Seventeen Episode 12 Summary by Ninja
1. Alice finds the contents of the time capsule in her apartment. In a flash back we see that both of our leads had shown up on the day the four friends had promised to meet 10 years ago but apparently they missed each other and Alice ended up emptying the time capsule by herself.

Friday Drama Round Up #87

Wanted (Korean Drama)
Yap, I caved in and checked this one out. As expected the subject matter involving a child kidnapping is completely heart breaking and it's made that much worse by Kim Ah Joong's (heroine/the mom) outstanding job of portraying a desperate mother who is forced to swallow her overwhelming panic to save her son. Judging by the first two episode I am really not sure if we will get more than a hint of a romance but I don't think we will miss it anyway since the story is so intense and the acting outstanding all around.
