MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

4 stars

This was M-A-G-I-C-A-L! I loved almost everything about this drama, the cinematography was phenomenal. The story was very well told, the actors did an AMAZING job. I love Lee Dong-Wook, he is such a talented actor.  Truly a beautiful drama to end the year.

Another surprise I got was Kim Bum! I loved him in “Boys Over Flowers” and now seeing him in this drama was so cool. He aged like fine wine.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

It was there! And that’s amazing. Jo Bo-Ah in the first episode tried too hard(I mean…I got it…your male lead is a legend), but after it…they worked better together.

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

This was very unique, the plot was really good. It has mystery, romance, mental health awareness.  Felt like a Tim Burton movie, but kdrama edition and I love it. But….it wasn’t the best. The actors did an amazing job, but the script…felt like something was missing. Don’t get me wrong I loved it, just I expected a little bit more of it.

tumblr_38b43a14ef6bc2df91115ea9a36dee19_66e65515_540I finished watching it yesterday, and guys…this is GOOD! First starting this drama it gave me BIG Hotel La luna vibes(at first), but then it became something different… and I love it! The only critic I have,it has just 12 episodes…and I do feel it needed more.

If you like past lives, paranormal, comedy-dramas you will LOVE this one.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

mystic-pop-up-bar-reveals-new-highlight-reelWe have (kinda) two couples. The first one is Han Kang-Bae and Kang Yeo-Rin, Omg they were soooo cute! Such good chemistry and the cute moments….just awwwww. And the second couple was Manager Gwi and Wol-Ju. I loved the bickering and the low-key flirting. It was nice to see a more mature couple in such a drama.

 

HOW IT ENDS

*Mild Spoilers*

It felt rushed….and too short! Yes, we get all the plot holes filled, but it was rushed. Overall I liked the ending.

Why King: Eternal Monarch is my favorite Kdrama at this moment!

Hello, my Darlings! How are you all doing? I just finished King: Eternal Monarch and it was amazing! Now I have a hangover and I need to talk about it. So let’s dive into it!

About the drama: Yi Gon is the third Korean emperor of his generation. His citizens regard him as the perfect leader. 
But behind this flawless appearance, hides a deep wound. 
When he was eight years old, his father was murdered before his eyes following a coup. 
Today, instead of respecting his filial duty, he prefers to escape the palace to attend university conferences. During one of his escapades,
 he sees himself propelled into a parallel world where he meets Jung Tae Eul, an inspector with whom he teams up with to defeat the criminals 
but also close the door between their two worlds.

Lee Min-ho is back!

It’s his first drama after military service and it didn’t disappoint!

tenor

Woo Do Hwan is an amazing actor

He played two very different people , one was Jo Young, the royal bodyguard to Lee Gon who takes his job very seriously, and the other Jo Eun-seob who is a public service worker at a police station. He played those two soo good, I started to think twins played those roles and not one person!

enternal king

It has ACTION!

Like a lot of it!!! And it’s amazing!

The romance is the sweetest

King Lee Gon and Jong Tae-eul are the sweetest! So many cute moments between all the action. The chemistry was on point!

honeycam-2020-05-01-22-18-53-15883883854191038865387

The multiple world situation

It’s set in two parallel universes, one is a place called the Kingdom of Corea that’s ruled by King Lee Gon and the other is present-day Korea, where police detective Jong Tae-eul is! It’s really interesting to see a parallel history in this drama, and how Korea could look if the things would play differently.

“Extraordinary You”- disappointed me

ABOUT THE DRAMA :

extra kdramaWhat would you do if you found out that you were in fact a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously!

Eun Danoh is a 17 year old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Danoh realizes she is experiencing long gaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see.

Country: Korean

Status: Completed

Released: 2019

Genre: Comedy; Fantasy; Friendship; Romance; School; Youth;

 

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

plotIt’s such a unique idea, a comic book character that finds out she is in a comic book?! That’s such a cool thing. The first 8 episodes were amazing, I loved every second of it, though maybe it’s my new Goblin?! …but after those episodes, it started to drag. Like there was so much going on, but it felt so flat…I don’t know why. So disappointing…

It’s 3 stars out of 5 stars for me !

 

 

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

coupleUnpopular opinion – I didn’t like any of the Love interests. For me, it was more a self-journey and you really didn’t need a love interest in this one. So we have the Haru the character who isn’t in the main story andcouple 2 Eun Danoh’s fiance in the comics Baek Kyung. There was chemistry between this love triangle,I just personally didn’t care about it.

 

HOW IT ENDS

(mild spoilers)

It was an open-ended ending, with a bittersweet feeling.  I’m okay with it, I kind of saw it coming.
