Currently Watching: Sungkyunkwan Scandal

I am not much into historical KDrama, I think I only watched Dae Jang Geum or Jewel in the Palace among the many out there. So when Sungkyunkwan Scandal came out I didn't bat an eyelash even though I read positive reviews about it.

So why did I change my mind? Boredom I guess, since I only have Flower Boy Ramyun Shop on my current list. And I am glad I did because it was not the stereotype historical where it is heavy drama but more on a playful note. 

And the female lead is Park Min Young aka Nana Bear of City Hunter and the gf of Lee Min Ho. I assume I remember her because of the latter, imagine Lee Min Ho's girl? She sure is very very lucky.

I'll blog more when as I progress as I am still at ep 4.

OMO. I really need to buy a dvd player sa CDRking nang magpanuod ko na ang mga hindi ko pa napapanuod. I can't take the wait kasi so I wait for something to finish muna bago ko panuorin tapos naku...walang tulugan.

That's what i like about K-Drama. while the likes of Boys Over Flower, the Endless Love saga, and Full House have been top rating shows not just in South Korea, but around Asia as well, they still can't forget making their audience reminisce the history of South Korea.
