May Recommendations

I decided to have a monthly or bi-monthly recommendation post, of what you might ask, well, it's sort of a list of Korean series or movies that I had watched and think highly of or at least worthy of being mentioned and watch by others. You all know by now that I am completely taken by the K-drama and Hallyu phenomenon, right? But I didn't stop there, I am now into, Japanese, Taiwanese and Thai entertainment, it's a challenge watching and reading subs at the same time but I sincerely enjoy every minute of it *smiles*.

For this month (yeah, I'm a little late in realizing what should be done *grins*), I have a few, 3 ongoing Korean series, they all started this month, 1 Taiwanese series, and 1 Korean series that was aired last year, I think it is currently running in ABS-CBN dubbed in Tagalog.

  • The Greatest Love is a 16-episode romance-comedy starring Gong Hyo Jin and Cha Seung Won, at the moment, 6 English-subbed episodes are available at MySoju and DramaCrazy (I watched in DramaCrazy, by the way). Synopsis - Ae Jung is a female band member who is already over the hill. When she enters a variety show to pretend marriage with the top star Jin, she gets entangled in a love triangle along with her ex-bandmate Kang Se Ri. Yoon Pil Joo is a doctor of oriental medicine who has no interest in the entertainment industry but meets Ae Jung by chance and falls for her.

  • Lie To Me is 16-episode romance comedy starring Yoon Eun Hye and Kang Ji Wan, as of posting, 5 English subbed episodes are available. Synopsis - Gong Ah Jung, a level 5 Ministry of Culture official, gets entangled in a web of lies when she mistakenly lies that she's married to Hyun Ki Joon, a hotel manager from an affluent family. Their relationship is further complicated when Ki Joon's ex-fiancĂ©e and a close friend of his brother's, Oh Yoon Joo, reappears in his life.

  • Romance Town is a 20-episode romance comedy starring Sung Yu Ri and Jung Gyu Woon, at the moment, 4 English-subbed episodes are available. Synopsis - The story of domestic help who work for rich households. No Soon Geum is one of these housekeepers; despite the master-maid heirarchy, she's bold, fearless, and unafraid of doing hard work in order to support herself. As a child, Soon Geum had dreamt of living a grand life in a Cinderella story, complete with her own white knight, but that dream had faded as reality took over. However, she reaches a turning point in her life when she is hired as a maid for the rich and handsome Kang Gun Woo.

  • Love You or Drunken To Love You is a romance comedy from Taiwan starring Rainie Yang and Joseph Chang, at of today, 6 English-subbed episodes are available. Synopsis - Two dejected and really drunk people woke up the next morning to find themselves married to each another.

  • I Am Legend aired August of last year, it is a 16-episode romance-musical starring Kim Jung Eun and Lee Joon Hyuk. Synopsis - Jun Seol starts a band to get her life back on track. She recently divorced her husband after realizing that she deserved to be treated better by her husband's family. Her band mates are also 'ahjummas' who also have personal problems of their own.

All five can be found at My Soju and Drama Crazy. Enjoy!
