If You Loved Age of Youth Watch This Korean Movie

When the male voice singing “Time After Time” infiltrated the screen I knew I was in for a good movie. The song set the tone for what preceded. The film Sunny had the perfect balance of hilarity, sentiment, drama, and heart warm. The feel was very much like Age of Youth in terms of discussing edgier topics, along with the undying loyalty and love each girl showed each other.

It gave a Reply Series feel as well, as it dipped back and forth between the present and future, covering the lives of a group of tightknit girlfriends. Going through the comments section on DramaFever I saw its high praises and figured it was just what I needed.

If you just finished Age of Youth or the Reply Series and are looking for something with the same realistic coming of age value, give Sunny a try.

8 Things I Appreciate About Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

This post was ten episodes shy of being titled “Goblin, My Unpopular Opinion”, as when I watched the first few episodes of Goblin: The Lonely and Great God, it was pretty slow to me and I did not understand the hype. I found the female lead annoying, and somehow did not see the amazing charm of the male actors.

Thankfully I continued as I thought, this had to be one hell of a drama for it to do better than the 2016 hit drama that swept drama land not too long ago,  Descendants of the Sun. And after I watched the Goblin special and realized that this masterpiece was in fact created by Kim Eun Sook, the same woman that created Descendants of the Sun, I thought daebak! That makes so much sense as both dramas were legendary in their own respect.

There were many things that crossed my mind as I watched Goblin and took in the amazing effort and detail put in by the cast and crew, and I’m going to tell you exactly why this drama took me by surprise.

Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People—Things I Loved

I’ll be real, other than a promising plot one of the things that got me to watch Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People was how charismatic and cool I thought the main lead looked. And charismatic and cool he was. When I began watching Rebel I wasn’t really looking for a love story, but more of a story in which the underdog triumphs, and that I got.

Yoon Gyun Sang, along with the other impeccable actors of this drama kept me glued to the screen episode to episode.

Now let me let you in on all the things I could not get enough of in this drama, other than the charming leads half smirk that did all sorts of things to my heart.

The Reply Series: A Detailed Opinion

In the summer of 2012 I was but a tiny inkling on this planet, preparing for my sophomore year of high school, completely unaware of the magic of the K-Drama world. As I ate cold cut sandwiches for lunch and tried to decide if my frenemy at the time would yield to my next move, I wasn’t even aware that something bigger, something beyond me was taking place.

The Reply Series took the world by storm in the summer of 2012, starting with Reply 1997, soon being followed by Reply 1994, and Reply 1988 after its success. I watched each season in order of its release, naturally beginning with 1997 during my Freshman year of college in 2015. They lived up to the hype, so much so making me wonder how I even lived in a Reply-free-world before my discovery upon this gold mine of dramas.
