Amuden, Stephanie’s proposal has made me scavenging through my list for weeks. It is not an easy thing to decide. I’m an easy to please person but every 2013-produced dramas were meh and bleh. I know there are few ones that stand out from the crowd (including the bad ones). And mine are:
Best of 2013
A dark thriller, Cruel City is the most fabulous drama I’ve seen this year. I must say when the show wrapped up, I was completely disarrayed. Cruel City, a Korean-mafia druglord-meet-Bourne action packed style is a highly engaging and addicting drama. Shi Hyun aka Baksa (doctor’s son) is the main character that drives the Cruel City from beginning to the end. His bad boy yet sophisticated image had me swoon for the entire series. I can see few striking resemblances to City Hunter, even though both stands up in its own way. Cruel City deserves two thumbs up from me.
What I learned from Cruel City? Watch out – because of everyone is an undercover cop!
The Revenge-Gone-Wrong drama: Secret
Secret taught me one thing: you simply can’t trust the law.
With IHYV, you only learn one thing: Trust your instinct!
A really grounded yet mysterious ghost drama. Who Are You left me chilled to the bone! It was super scary with awesome ghost effects (computerize is so over). It was not the most original plotline but its certainly fresh in my kdrama history. I enjoy the quirky relationship between the main leads. They have great chemistry and it was believable to my eyes. I love that the romance was not overpowering as it focused on the main idea: who are you, as in who are these ghosts and why are they haunting Detective Shi On. My only complaint? Stop blurring the bloody weapons!
Lesson learned from Queen’s Classroom? Trust your teacher, no matter what! Or should you? *raises brow*
Ugly Alert – the greatest family drama ever! The best bromance! The best sibling romance. The best sismance. This drama screams tight and neat relationship family all around. Love it!
Let’s Eat – this drama left me hungry all the time! Food porn drama at its best! Enough said…
Prime Minister and I – wow, this drama knocked my feet off. I love it so much! Comedy and romance, can’t beat that!
Pretty Boy aka Bel Ami – well, what can I say… It’s Jang Keun Suk. Either you like him or not. This is just meh for me…
Give Love Away – another awesome family drama! Seriously, where is the conflict? No angst, and the best old-fart couple romance in ages!
Well, there you have it. I hope you agree with my list. I know we all have different preference but one thing in common: our love for dramas! Happy New Year 2014, everyone and I hope 2014 brings better dramas than 2013! Cheers!
