Drama Recommendation

I thought it would be fun to share one drama that I would recommend! I don’t want to spoil anything so I’m just going to share a synopsis from Mydramalist. The drama I want to recommend is:

LAW SCHOOL!

This drama was such a surprise for me. A really interesting story as well as interesting characters! You can find this on Netflix!

When a grim incident occurs at their prestigious school, justice through law is put to the test by a tough law professor and his ambitious students.

Yang Jong Hoon is a criminal law professor and a former elite prosecutor, whose harsh words make him the professor to steer clear of. At the same time, there’s something compelling about his strict teaching methods and his refusal to accept less than the best from his future juniors in the legal profession.

Han Joon Hwi, a first-year law student, is at the top of his class. He’s a natural leader whose good looks and easy charm make him the perfect man – on paper. However, there’s an unexpected side to him that remains well-hidden.

Kang Sol (A) is another first-year law student who overcame childhood poverty and hardships by gaining special admission to the school. She walks a path of thorns due to her constant sense of deprivation and shame amidst the wealth and talent that surrounds her. Eventually, her passion will enlighten her on what it truly takes to be a good lawyer.

Kim Eun Sook is a civil law professor who was once the head of the law school’s free legal clinic. Her natural air of authority and freewheeling personality earned her the reputation for being a master in court. Known for being a highly relatable professor, she is the sole colleague Yang Jong Hoon dares to confide in.

Sisyphus: The Myth Thoughts

I’m hear to talk about the drama Sisyphus: The Myth. (***This post may contain SPOILERS***)

First thing, I absolutely loved this drama. From the characters, relationships, story, I really loved it all.

Sisyphus: The Myth is about a war that breaks out leaving it completely destroyed. We follow our main character Seo Hae as she travels from 2035 back to 2020 to prevent the war. We follow the timeline of both the post war as well as present time.

The characters and the relationships were really great in my opinion. I found myself loving not only the main characters but most of the side characters as well, both good and bad. I loved how the villains were portrayed in this story, especially Sigma.

Seo Hae, played by Park Shin Hye, really surprised me with this character. And I think she portrayed her so well. She was such a badass character, and I absolutely loved seeing it! I loved seeing her time in both the present and the future and it was SO NICE to see a woman as the protector this time! The relationships that she built with people was fun to watch, but the relationship between her and her father was absolutely amazing. I loved seeing how that father-daughter relationship was portrayed in both the past, present, and future.

Tae Sul, played by Cho Seung Woo, was such a fun character to see played out on screen. I think Cho Seung Woo was a great choice for this character. He plays a brilliant CEO engineer who also happens to be struggling with the loss of his brother. He hallucinates his brother quite often, so we see him taking pills to stop it.

Kim Byung Chul who plays Sigma was absolutely amazing. I thought he was such a great villain, and every time he appeared I was wondering what he was going to do next. What he had planned. And the dynamic between him and Tae Sul was absolutely entertaining to watch. And adding Seo Hae in the mix made it better.

The crew of Asia Mart was also a lot of fun to watch. They become important parts to the story and with our main characters.

I was a big fan of the relationship between Tae Sul and Seo Hae. Personally I loved seeing them together and this relationship develop. And I absolutely loved seeing Seo Hae as the protector in this story.

This entire drama is very action filled, but we also get quite a bit of emotional moments between a lot of the characters. I was rooting for our leads to save the world and stop the war. I wanted to see it happen even though about halfway through I finally realized what the title meant.

I think why I loved this drama so much is because I didn’t take it that seriously. This deals with time travel, and obviously time travel is a very difficult plot to do well. So with movies and/or shows that do it I don’t take them all that seriously and am pretty lenient with how it’s portrayed. You have to be open to it, so because I was more open to what they were doing with this plot, I think I was able to enjoy it so much more.

I won’t talk about the ending here because I have an entire post dedicated to my thoughts on the ending of this drama. People have a lot of theories, and I share mine. If you would like to read that I’ll link it here—> Sisyphus: The Myth ENDING

Overall I really loved this drama. I know it has a lot of mix thoughts, and I would love to hear yours.

K-Dramas!

In the middle of December(2017), I started watching K-dramas for the first time. I’ve heard of them before, but they never really interested me. Then one night, I decided to give it a shot. I figured what the hell, right? Oh man, I didn’t know what I was getting into.

The very first K-drama that I watched was Boys Over Flowers. Now when I started this, it was definitely a different experience. I had no idea what I was getting into. Honestly, I wasn’t in love with this drama, but I did find myself invested, and wanting to know how it would end. And by the end, I found myself wanting more. 612a03fc078a04875ed00c5a2c6f5cac

Then I was recommended The Heirs. I started this show and was instantly hooked. Way more than I was with Boys Over Flowers. I found myself so invested in the story and the characters. And when I finished The Heirs, that was it. I knew I was screwed. I knew that I was going to be sucked into the world of K-Dramas for awhile. And I was right. Since then I’ve watched about 10 K-Dramas.

The dramas that I’ve watched so far include:

  • Boys Over Flowers
  • The Heirs
  • Oh My Ghostess
  • Lets Fight Ghost
  • Goblin
  • Master’s Sun
  • Fight My Way
  • Legend of the Blue Sea
  • Marriage, Not Dating
  • 1% of Something
  • Strong Woman Bo Bong-Soon

I plan to make a list of my absolute favorite K-Dramas that I’ve watched. I would love to know your favorites, or some recommendations.
