Guess who’s back! It’s only Jo Jung Seok, one of the hottest actors to grace our kdrama universe. He can be tough, he can be cool, he can be funny. He’ll get the chance to be all three in Two Cops, airing November 27!
Battle of the Bae’s!
Revolutionary Love vs. Black (Korean drama).
As you know, every kdrama fangirl has a bias or two (or two hundred!) and I’m no exception!
October promises not just one but two of my favorite male leads and they, and their individual dramas, couldn’t be more different!
Dark and Light Themes
One is breezy and bright, the other is gritty and dark. Revolutionary Love stars Choi Si Won as a secret heir (named Byun Hyuk) who has to trade his wealthy background for a life of everyday toil.
It’s going to be fun watching him find his way around the worries of paying rent, holding down a part-time job, and simply getting by.
He’s going to get into loads of trouble, fall heedlessly in love, and maybe learn a few life lessons along the way.
And he’ll do all that, while displaying that irrepressibly cheery and even whacky outlook on life we know Siwon plays so well.
Black in contrast is more into stranger things, like the underworld, the supernatural and you know, high-stakes thrills and chills.
In a drama where the Grim Reaper decides to possess the body of a detective, paired with a woman who can predict death, there’s bound to be elements of gloom.
That’s hardly a deterring factor though, considering all the smoldering tension will be provided by none other than the masterful Song Seung Heon who plays Detective Black.
He’ll be teaming up with his clairvoyant leading lady Kang Ha-ram (played by Go-Ara) and together they will go against hell itself to rescue innocent lives.
Broody, moody and all kinds of intense, Black Kdrama will offer just the right foil to withstand all the unbearably cute, fuzzy, upbeat goodness from Revolutionary Love. Sounds like a win-win to me!
Both such compelling dramas to look forward to, the mysterious Black and the comedic Revolutionary Love start Oct. 14!!
So who else can’t wait??
What a blast! Criminal Minds started off on the right side of fast-paced, gritty and turbulent. Whew.
The chaos and adrenalin both kick in from the first minute and nothing slows down until the very end. Who else is out of breath?!
Now that was an action-packed couple of hours! Strangely satisfying yet keeps you wanting more. Kdrama just found its new krack!
Sageuk done right
Ruler: Master of the Mask is possibly the kind of period drama I’ve been waiting for since the beginning of the year. Meaty, vibrant and tied in nice little knots, it has you eager to unravel as many twists as you can, as fast as you can!
I’ve been the pickiest soul with my kdramas in 2017 thus far, so here’s hoping my luck starts to change this May!
Yippee! Finally, a drama or two to cheer about – way overdue if you ask me!
Guns. Fists. Tears and blood. Heroism, conviction and of course love…
Episode 16 of The K2 gave a smash finish to an awesome drama.
Ji Chang Wook again, plays the perfect lead that takes it all the way up. An action hero worth his weight in muscles, and my what big ones he’s got!
All the better to take down the bad guys, save the girl and win the day.
His only worry as an actor, will be how to yet again top a stellar performance in his next drama. No pressure, Wookie. No pressure.
Now that we’re nearing the end of year 2016 it’s certainly not too much to expect even more ‘zing’ in our k-drama offerings.
Can November manage to bring it even harder than the preceding months have done? Simply put: you betcha!
