Dreaming of Dream High

One more day to Dream High's finale.

I can't wait to watch it whether subbed or not.

I'm really curious of who will be "K". I guess it will be Baek Hee (Ham Eun Jung) though I initially wanted it to be Sam Dong (Kim Soo Hyun). But as long as Sam Dong ended up with Hye Mi (Suzy) I'm good with that.

Here's the scene I like in ep 14, when Sam Dong, Hye Mi and Jin Gook were planning on their music videos. They wanted to show the improvements they undergone during the past year – Jin Sook mellowed down (he used to fight a lot), Sam Dong became confident (he’s a country bumpkin) while Hye Mi became humane (doesn’t have emotion or doesn’t know how to express herself).

For ep 15, I soo love the moment when Hye Mi realizes she like Sam Dong.

Love love love, I want your love.

My Princess: The End

And they lived happily ever after.

Well not really, they do get the happy ending but still with a lot of conflicts.

For one, Lee Seol (Kim Tae Hae) is the crowned princess and with the title comes great responsibilities.

Second, Hae Young (Song Seung Hun) works as a Diplomat for the government.

Their positions in the society may be contradicting but they managed to compromise a little and made the whole country (well actually me and the other MP followers) really happy.

It was a great ending with lots and lots of kiss!

Go My Princess! You Rock!

KDrama: Dream High

I was first reluctant to watch this musical themed drama, thinking it was a Glee-popularity-driven-whatsoever-thing, but I was W-R-O-N-G!

Just the first episode completely nailed me and I went to watch the next 9 episodes straight. The story starts with the first ever Korean singer who won the Grammy’s in 2018, the singer “K” was said to have studied in Kirin Arts High School. Back to the present time, a number of aspiring idols took auditions to enter the prestigious school and so starts their grueling flight to stardom. But it’s not that simple, each kid has its own story to tell and their intertwining fates make it more complicated (I’ll probably need a separate post/s for this).

I already watch ep14 last night at
kimchidrama and read the recap of ep15 at dramabeans (thanks JB and GF!) this morning. I have to wait for another week for the last ep, now that’s the hardest part.

I so love this KDrama! I love Hye Mi, Sam Dong, Jin Gook, Pil Sook, Jason and Baek Hee (but I guess I love Sam Dong a little more, guilty!). I don’t care who turns up to be the singer “K”. They all deserve it.

KDrama: My Princess

Another KDrama about the royal family.


But NOT!

Not if the male lead is Song Seung Hun oppa. Remember Johnny of Autumn's Tale (with Song Hye Kyo as Jenny)?

And there's Kim Tae Hee though this is her first KDrama on my watch list, she totally rocks as the kick ass princess.

Still waiting for the last two episodes. Can't wait!
