Personal Taste (Drama)


Genre: Romance, Comedy

Jeon Jin Ho (Lee Min Ho) is a straight architect who likes to be clean and neat. He ends up living with Park Kae In (Son Ye Jin), a lowly furniture designer/maker, who mistakes him as a gay man. Kae In just broke up with her boyfriend who never even looked at her as a woman, thus severing all good feelings toward men. With the knowledge of Jin Ho being gay, Kae In becomes comfortable around him. But how will Kae In react when she finds out Jin Ho isn't gay and has developed feelings for her?

Lee Min Ho! So cute! And a return to the light for Son Ye Jin! I'm loving this drama. Cute and funny moments, two antagonists (Ooooh), a crazy best friend, two love crazy people, and lots of misunderstandings make for a good drama. Go and watch!!

Will It Snow For Christmas? (Drama)


Genre: Drama, Romance

Cha Kang Jin meets a feisty girl, Han Ji Wan, when his family moves back to his mother's hometown. A traumatic experience and no support from her family pushes Ji Wan to run away, ending a possible relationship with Kang Jin. Now grown up, Ji Wan (Han Ye Seul) meets Kang Jin (Go Soo) once again... during her engagement party. Will the past catch up? What will happen to the torn lovers when everything around them goes against them?

My friend recommended me to watch this one, and I'm liking it. There are a lot of intense drama going on, and my heart can only take so much, so it took some time to finish this one (plus school is cutting into my precious drama time TT_TT). Great acting from the actors. Loving Go Soo! He's so cute and you can feel the love from him! Ahehe. Fan girling much?

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Drama)


Genre: Comedy, Romance

Takano Kyohei (Kamenashi Kazuya) is a broke student with a hot temper, Toyama Yukinojo (Tegoshi Yuya) is the cutesy childish one, Oda Takenaga (Ushi Hiroki) as the cool tempered one, and Mori Ranmaru (Miyao Shuntaro) is the hot blooded cougar magnet. These four men live under the mansion of Nakahara Mine and her son Takeru. They could get free board and room if they could fulfill Nakahara's wish: Make her gothic niece Nakahara Sunako (Oomasa Aya) into a Yamato Nadeshiko- the ideal lady. The men take on the challenge and discover what Sunako has in store for them.

I've watched and loved the anime, so I was anticipating this one. I was hoping for devastatingly handsome men to play the guys, but I could live with the actors they cast. Honestly, it carried it's own weight. I mean fitting a long running manga into 11 episodes is not an easy feat, so I think it was very decent work, good acting by the cast, and the story progress was fast but enough to tell a story. There were a lot of good and funny moments too! It's a fun and short drama if you're looking for something to pass the time before cramming for finals. Hehe.
