Cha Dae Woong (Lee Seung Gi) is a spoiled brat and wants to be an action movie star. After a particular tantrum with his grandfather, he releases a 500-year-old spirit. Gu Mi Ho (Shin Min Ah) is a nine-tailed fox who has unspeakable powers. After being released Mi Ho helps Dae Woong when he gets injured in the woods and Mi Ho heals him by giving her a few her spiritual powers. It is then that Dae Woong uses Mi Ho’s powers to make his action stunts more spectacular, and Mi Ho wants to learn how to be human. It is soon realized that Dae Woong is falling for the nine-tailed fox, but Gu Mi Ho has a secret about herself within the human world.

My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox is such a hilarious and adorable comedy! Just from the name itself, it can only ensure that it is something entertaining to watch. Shin Min Ah is charming and adorable playing a spirit that is trying to act human and Lee Seung Gi acts a spoiled brat well. Together Min Ah and Seung Gi have such a chemistry between the two of them that reminds me of a summer love that feels like it will last forever.

Following the hit sensation before it, Dream High 2 follows a similar story line as before but focuses on new faces and talent. This time, Kirin Arts High School has been having financial difficulties and is soon to be bought by an elite company. In the nick of time a girl group, HershE, transfers to Kirin. Lian (Park Ji Yeon) is a talented actress, Nana (Kim Hyo Jung) is a talented singer, and  Ailee (Lee Ye Jin) is an airhead performer. In addition, Shin Hye Sung (Kang So Ra) has musical talents but strongly buts heads with rock star Jin Yoo Jin (Jung Jin Woon), but there is an underlying romance between the two ready to be released.

Dream High 2 has a similar story as in its predecessor. Featuring new talents, it’s another perfect drama for those who are K-Pop fans and want an easy bridge into the drama world. Similar to what I mentioned that I loved about Dream High, is that the drama features not only romance and a ‘coming of age’ story, it features talented stars who are able to show the range of their abilities.

Dream High

Welcome, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the musical drama: Dream High.
Starring Kim Soo Hyun, Ok Taec Yeon, Bae Su Ji, Ham Eun Jung, Jang Woo Young, and Lee Ji Eun.
Written by Park Hye Ryun, this 17 episode drama aired in 2011.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Dream High depicts a story of students at the prestigious music high school, Kirin Art High School. Go Hye Mi (Bae Su Ji) is a singer whose family was once rich but has been facing economic difficulties. Hye Mi auditions to Kirin Art High School, but is rejected once her best friend, Yoon Baek Hee (Ham Eun Jong) is accepted. Wanting to follow the girl he likes, Song Sam Dong (Kim Soo Hyun) has an interest in both Hye Mi and music but is dealing with a hearing impairment. Similarly, Jin Guk (Ok Taec Yeon), is Hye Mi’s childhood friend and a talented rapper in a small K-Pop band. In the end, though there can only be one K-Pop star, but who will it be?

Dream High has a star-studded cast of actual K-Pop stars. Similar to the movie Fame it has a similar feel of what the lives of young talent are forced to face and how challenging the entertainment world can be. Personally, I am a fan of musicals, so having a show featuring singers and actually singing songs interests me a bit. Overall this seems like an amazing drama for K-Pop fans, and an easy bridge for those fans to cross over from Pop to Drama’s.

Nightmare High

Welcome back, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the thrilling drama: Nightmare High. 
Starring Uhm Ki Joon, Kim So Hyun, Lee Min Hyuk, Seo Shin Ae, and Baek Seung Do.
Written by Hyun Moon Sub and Jung Yoo Suk, this 12 episode series aired in 2016.
Watch it on KissAsian and Netflix.

'Nightmare High'

At Yosan Private High School after the homeroom teacher for class 2-3 has been hospitalized, there is a new teacher that comes to take over. Han Bong Gu (Uhm Ki Joon) is a mysterious substitute teacher for the time being and it seems to be that all the teachers know who he is. As strange events start to occur, class president Kang Ye Rim (Kim So Hyun) and her classmate Seo Sang Woo (Lee Min Hyuk) investigate this new mysterious teacher to prevent anything else from happening.

Nightmare High seems like a very strange and almost unknown drama. From the first episode, there is a creepy vibe that comes with watching and it, and it seems that there are many secrets about each character that will be revealed as you continue to watch the series. Since each episode is only 15-20 minutes long it doesn’t take long to get through this series and uncover the secrets that each character holds.

Tomorrow with You

Hello, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the romantic drama: Tomorrow with You.
Starring Shin Min Ah, Lee Je Hoon, Kim Ye Won, Jo Han Chul, and Oh Kwang Rok.
Written by Heo Sung Hye, this 16 episode series aired in 2017.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Yoo So Joon (Lee Je Hoon) is a CEO of a large company and approaches every situation as a profit or a loss. He is selfish and lives his life looking out for only himself. Not only is So Joon rich and handsome, but he also has the ability to time-travel when he travels on a subway. Song Ma Rin (Shin Min Ah) is a photographer who was once a child star. Struggling as an adult in her personal life and professionally, she keeps a positive and optimistic attitude. When So Joon sees his how depressed and dull his life is in the future, he decides to marry Ma Rin as a way to save his own future. Although he doesn’t love her, Ma Rin is in love with So Joon. Will it be possible for So Joon to actually find love in his heart for Ma Rin?

Tomorrow with You has such an interesting concept to it. I haven’t seen many dramas that deal with the ability of time travel, unlike many that dealt with the supernatural ability to see spirits and ghosts. This fresh idea was received well, as well as the casting choice of Shin Min Ah and Lee Je Hoon. Overall this drama is going to be a tear-jerker and will definitely feature some comedic scenes between Min Ah and Je Hoon.

Kim Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) is a college athlete, specifically a weightlifter. Even though she can lift heavy weights, she is kind and ambitious, only wanting people to do the good thing. Jung Joon Hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk) is a competitive swimmer, who because of a traumatic past competition has become less free spirited and serious when it comes to swimming. When Bok Joo and Joon Hyung meet after she returns his lost handkerchief, Joon Hyung remembers meeting Bok Joo years ago after she saved his life.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo has been a hit drama these past few months. With its hilarious cast and witnessing Lee Sung Kyung lifting so many heavy objects but having awkward moments around boys, this drama is not only cute but also inspirational for young girls who look up to a ‘weightlifting fairy’.

Uncontrollably Fond

Welcome, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the romantic drama: Uncontrollably Fond. 
Starring Kim Woo Bin, Bae Su Ji, Im Ju Hwan, Jin Kyung, Lee Seo Won, and Ryu Won.
Written by Lee Kyung Hee, this 20 episode series aired in 2016.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

'Uncontrollably Fond' Stills

No Eul (Bae Su Ji) and Shin Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) were in a relationship as teenagers until they are suddenly separated. Years later No Eul is now a TV producer and Joon Young has become a top Hallyu star with an arrogant personality. When No Eul is assigned to produce a documentary on Joon Young the two have a second chance encounter as adults and cannot deny the spark between them.

Uncontrollably Fond was the talk of the KDrama world because of Kim Woo Bin and Suzy who are both big named stars in South Korea. The second chance romance between the two leads and the love-hate relationship they have are common tropes in drama that keep the viewers watching and wanting more!
