Lee Jung Joo (Kang So Ra) has been hard at work her whole life and as a result becomes grouchy and pessimistic. After a series of unfortunate events, Jung Joo leaves the city of Seoul and moves to Jeju Island for a new start. Baek Geon Woo (Yoo Yun Suk) owns a restaurant called ‘Warm and Cozy’ on Jeju Island as a way to get away from his wealthy family. But when Jung Joo runs into Geon Woo, her first love, there is an unexpected meeting as the two clash with their polar opposite personalities.

Jeju Island Gatsby by itself has a beautiful location on a quaint island resort.

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.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, Netflix, and KissAsian.

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.

 

Sensory Couple

Hello again, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic Drama: Sensory Couple.
Starring Park Yoo Chun, Shin Se Kyung, Nam Goong Min, Yoon Jin Suh, and Kim So Hyun.
Written by Lee Hee Myung, this 16 episode series aired in 2015.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Choi Moo Gak (Park Yoo Chun) was a loving brother who cared for his younger sister until one night she was murdered by a killer known as the ‘Barcode’ killer. Oh Cho Rim (Shin Se Kyung) also became a part of the ‘Barcode’ Murder case after her parents were killed and she was the only witness. But while escaping the killer Cho Rim gets hit by a car and falls into a coma. Three years later Cho Rim awakens with no memory of what happened to her but finds that she can see smells with her eyes. Moo Gak has become a police officer who has dedicated his life to finding the man who murdered his sister and in the process, has lost all feelings that made him human. Together Moo Gak and Cho Rim work together to find out more about Cho Rim’s past and why she and Moo Gak are possible targets of the Barcode murderer.

Sensory Couple is one of the cutest crime dramas I have seen. There are equal parts of thriller, comedy, romance, and mystery while watching this suspenseful drama. Shin Se Kyung and Park Yoo Chun have a great chemistry together that leaves you wanting them to end up together and become closer as the show moves forward. I’d definitely recommend this drama to those who like romance but also for those who enjoy crime shows with many twists and turns.

Ghost

Welcome DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Mystery Drama: Ghost. 
Starring So Ji Sub, Lee Yeon Hee, Uhm Ki Joon, Daniel Choi, Jung Byung Hee, and Kwak Do Won.
Written by Kim Eun Hee, this 20 episode series aired in 2012.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Kim Woo Hyun (So Ji Sub) is the son of a well-known police officer. Wanting to make a name for himself, Woo Hyun also joins the police academy and quickly becomes top of his class and the envy of his peers. After he graduates, he is assigned to the Cyber Investigations and is enthralled by the psychological games of his faceless criminals. Together, Woo Hyun and other members of the Cyber Investigation squad, Yoo Kang Mi (Lee Yeon Hee) and Jo Hyung Min (Uhm Ki Joon), will work together to catch the criminals they can not see.

Ghost seems like the perfect drama for those who love crime series. Similar to Voice there seems to be one main ‘villain’ that is continuous through the whole series, and it is so enticing to watch. So Ji Sub is so serious and plays the part of a Policeman well. With its suspenseful plot and complex characters, I recommend Ghost to anyone that is a fan of crime shows and drama.

Ex-Girlfriend Club

Welcome, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic-Comedy: Ex-Girlfriend Club.
Starring Song Ji Hyo, Byun Yo Han, Lee Yoon Ji, Ryu Hwa Young, and Jang Ji Eun.
Written by Lee Jin Mae, this 12 episode series aired in 2015.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

'Ex-Girlfriend Club' Promotion Photo

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.
