Okay, I’m not sure if this warrents a Stop The Presses, as who knows when they actually released them. So if this is old news, just re-celebrate with me! When I first started watching Kdrama they had a couple of series, including I Really, Really Like You (which I watched). A while ago they released a bunch of Watch Now titles, some of the more recent ones (TV Dramas and Movies). Why am I excited about the disks when it means:
1) It means I would actually have to find my disks and send them back to get new ones
2) I’d have to watch shows a few episodes at a time and that’s not really my thing.
Well, I’ll tell you. The episodes that are avilable on disk are OLD ones. A lot of these titles are ones not available streaming and ones I’ve never even heard of before. Sweet!
Tonight I’ve added through my Queue these titles:
Someday-Although she writes about relationships, cartoonist Hana (Du-na Bae) doubts the existence of true love. Drawn from Japan to Korea to investigate a tragic love story, Hana warms to the notion of romance when she falls for a private detective (Jin-wuk Lee) and a doctor (Min-joon Kim). Occasionally blending animation with live-action cinematography, this groundbreaking Korean TV drama offers a fresh look at modern relationships.
Tomato-Aspiring shoe designer Lee Han Yi (Kim Hee Sun) can’t believe her luck when she saves shoe company heir Cha Seung Joon (Kim Suk Hoon) from certain death … that is, until Seung Joon assumes he has Han Yi’s selfish friend (Kim Suk Hoon) to thank instead. Proving audiences prefer their melodrama with a side of romance, this seminal Korean television drama set the standard for a string of others that followed in its footsteps.
Delicious Proposal– Although it has long served the best Chinese food in the area, student chef Hyo-dong’s (Jung Joon) family eatery faces tough times when a slick new chain restaurant opens up in the neighborhood. Hyo-dong discovers solace and romance with the beautiful Hee-ae (Son Ye Jin), a fellow culinary student, until he discovers exactly who her family is. So Ji Sub, Kwon Sang Woo and endless dishes of delectable food co-star in this Korean serial drama
Stained Glass– This popular Korean television miniseries follows the joys and heartbreaks of Dong-joo (Dong-geon Lee) and Gi-tae (Seong-su Kim), best friends since their days in an orphanage, as their relationship is tested when the beautiful Ji-soo (Ha-Neul Kim) befriends them both. High drama and compelling plot twists will tug at the heartstrings as the young trio steps into adulthood and discovers the meaning of friendship, loyalty and love.
Shoot For The Stars– The sky’s the limit in this 16-episode Korean television series that follows the lonely Sora (Jeon Do-yeon) and the illiterate Sung Tae (Jo In-Sung) on their separate quests to achieve their dreams. While Sora wants only to find her true love and be happily married, Sung Tae would give anything to be an actor. Meanwhile, Sora’s talent-manager brother, Ba Dah (Park Sang Myun), is falling hard for a woman (Hong Eun-Hee) with ulterior motives.
I’m sure there are others. downside to Netflix is there sorting is done terribly. There is no set rhyme or reason as to how Kdrama is labled. Basically you have to stumble upon it. I’ll be spending the rest of the evening trying to stumble upon more!
Great Day for Kdrama. More Kdrama releases means Kdrama is getting more popular here in the stats. If Kdrama gets more popular here in the states Netflix will offer more titles and possibly more legal streaming companies like DramaFever will pop up for us to use
