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’.

This mini-series focuses on Min Ah (Kwon Min Ah) a social outcast, who draws the attention of four boys from different social circles but who are all equally interested in Min Ah. Ju Ho (Baek Ju Ho) is the tough guy – cold at first meeting until he get’s to know you, Ro Woon (Kim Ro Woon) the school’s basketball star, Cha Ni (Kang Cha Ni) whose passion is to dance, and Da Won (Lee Da Won) the school’s top student. Which guy will Min Ah choose? It’s up to the viewer!

Which guy will Min Ah choose? It’s up to the viewer! What’s so interesting about this particular drama is the idea behind eliminating the second lead syndrome. This occurs when watching a drama and the lead and the second lead are your preference but then you realize that the relationship will never happen. Click Your Heart eliminates this syndrome by being an online, interactive, choose your own ending; meaning that the viewer will never have a second lead syndrome if they are the ones choosing the ending! Drama fans will never have to worry about the lead ending up with the wrong guy anymore with this drama!

Oh Mal Soon (Na Moon Hee) is a 74-year-old widowed grandmother who is living with her son and his wife. Mal Soon is proud of her son, Hyun Chul, whom she raised on her own, but butts heads with his wife, Ae Ja. When Hyun Chul tells Mal Soon that she can no longer live in the house with Ae Ja, he tells Mal Soon that he is sending her to a nursing home.

As Mal Soon wanders around after being told she has to move to a nursing home, she discovers a photo studio that claims to take an image of the most youthful time in one’s life. Entering the studio to get her own picture taken for her ‘future funeral’, she leaves the studio with the face of a young 20-year-old!

Now a young faced Oh Mal Soon goes about living as a young girl again and takes on a new name, Oh Doo Ri (Shim Eun Kyung), inspired by her favorite actress, Audrey Hepburn. Seen as a 20 year old girl Doo Ri finds new love and starts to live more boldly than before.

Miss Granny is a heart-warming film that makes you laugh and want to show it to everyone you know. Shim Eun Kyung is hilarious and portrays a young woman with an old spirit so well and makes you want to root for her as the film presents challenges to her. I recommend this to anyone that wants to watch a feel good movie that has both comedic scenes as well as some emotional ones.

Madame Antoine

Hello, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic-Comedy: Madame Antoine.

Starring Han Ye Seul, Sung Joon, Jung Jin Woon, Hwang Seung Eun, and Lee Joo Hyung.
Written by Hong Jin Ah, this 16 episode series aired in 2015.

Go Hye Rim (Han Ye Seul) is a famous romance fortune-teller who has made a name for herself by claiming her ability has come from a connection to Marie Antoinette. But really Hye Rim’s ‘powers’ are just from her keen observational skills. Choi Soo Hyun (Sung Joon) is a skeptical psychotherapist who doesn’t believe in Hye Rim’s powers of finding true love, or true love in general. When Hye Rim offers her abilities to Soo Hyun’s psychological test, her career is put in jeopardy.

Madame Antoine is such an interesting idea for a drama. It has all the aspects of a usual romantic comedy with the two leads falling for each other, even if at first they aren’t fond of each other. Han Ye Seul and Sung Joon have such an interesting chemistry from a romantic perspective and a comedic sense. I recommend this to anyone who loves the idea of a ‘LoveHate’ relationship and those who are interested in the ideas of powers or abilities.

 

Ex-Girlfriend Club

Welcome, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic-Comedy: Ex-Girlfriend Club.

Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Kim Soo Jin (Song Ji Hyo) is a producer for a film company and is so focused on her career that she has not had much success in her romantic life. When the company she works for is falling into bankruptcy, she has no choice but to work with her ex, Bang Myeong Soo (Byun Yo Han). Myeong Soo is an artist who has a webtoon about his own romantic life and all the ex-girlfriends he has had, including Soo Jin; creating a webtoon that many are fans of because of how relatable they are. By sharing these intimate details of his life, Myeong Soo is viewed either as a true romantic or an enemy to romance. While Soo Jin and Myeong Soo work together, boundaries and emotions are pushed as Soo Jin tries to produce Myeong Soo’s webtoon into a movie.

Ex-Girlfriend Club is going to be hilarious. Just from the plot of what is going to happen, I can already tell that there is going to be so much drama, as well as a rekindle of romance between the two leads. Song Ji Hyo is hilarious and easily portrays what it’s like to meet an ex again after years of seeing them. At the same time, Byun Yo Han’s character is such an air-head and just has a charm that pulls you in to want to see more of him. Together these two leads compliment each other very well and will keep viewers wanting for more.

My Wife’s Having an Affair This Week

Hi, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic-Comedy: My Wife’s Having an Affair This Week.
Starring Lee Sun Gyun, Song Ji Hyo, Kwon Bo Ah, Lee Sang Yeob, Kim Hee Won, Ye Ji Won, and Lee Suk Joon.
Directed by Kim Seok Yoon, this 12 episode series aired in 2016.

'My Wife's Having an Affair This Week' Promotion Photo

Do Hyun Woo (Lee Sun Gyun) has worked as a producer for television for the past 10 years. He believes that he has had a successful career and a happy, loving marriage. When he see’s on his wife, Jung Soo Yeon’s (Song Ji Hyo) phone a hotel reservation he becomes suspicious and paranoid that his wife is having an affair! Unsure of his suspicion he goes to an internet forum with the help of his lawyer friend and searches for an answer to if his wife is actually having an affair or he is just paranoid.

This is such a strange and hilarious show. I mean the first thing is just the title is so engaging and not what one would expect from a romantic comedy. But Lee Sun Gyun is hilarious and seems to just be a natural when it comes to comedic timing. I think this show perfectly encaptures the paranoia someone in a relationship can feel if they find something that they weren’t expecting.
