K-Drama Mini Reviews

Athena: Goddess of War

Pros:

Tons of action, good cinematography, and fairly consistent acting. It seemed to have a more evolving storyline compared to “IRIS”.

Cons:

I don’t know why but it seemed to lack emotion. It also felt a little long at 20 episodes

Rating:

7/10

 

Dream High

Pros:

If you like Kpop and Kpop idols than you will probably like Dream High. I liked it WAY more than I thought I would. I thought for a bunch of young actors they pulled it off pretty well.

Cons:

I can’t think of anything that really bothered me….so

Rating:

8/10

 

Rock Rock Rock

Pros:

A great little biopic on Boohwal guitarist Kim TaeWon. Good music and a great performance by No Min Woo.

Cons:

I wish it was longer and included the whole history of the band Boohwal, instead of only the most dramatic parts.

Rating:

8/10

Dramas, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho **Update**

Well, I’ve now watched episodes 5 and 6 and its really starting to grow on me. Lee Seung Gi has toned it down ALOT, he still does his “ButtHead” act from time to time but its been pulled back alot. Shin Min Ah has really started adding on the Aegyo cuteness which is the first time I’ve seen her play a character that way. (She is SOOOO cute)

Most of the bigger laughs (for me) have come from the Aunt and (wannabe) Chow Yun Fat. Maybe its because of my love of Chow Yun Fat movies or just the simple slapsticky nature of there encounters but it really cracks me up. I hope they keep that going for a little longer.

I’m undecided on what I think of No Min Woo ( I call him No Means No). Hope he doesnt become too bad.
