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.

Emergency Couple

Welcome DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the drama: Emergency Couple.
Starring Choi Jin Hyuk, Song Ji Hyo, Lee Pil Mo, Choi Yeo Jin, Lee Sung Min, and Kwon Min.
Written by Choi Yoon Jung, this 21 episode series aired in 2014.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Oh Chang Min (Choi Jin Hyuk) and Oh Jin Hee (Song Ji Hyo) were young and unaware of how harsh life could be when they got married. Living together Chang Min is working an unbearable job and Jin Hee is losing her hair from all the stress of living with Chang Min and fighting. When they divorce Chang Min goes back to his wealthy family while Jin Hee stays with her mother. Six years later both Chang Min and Jin Hee have gotten through medical school and end up meeting again when they learn they are both interning at the same hospital, specifically the emergency room. Forced to work together for three months, will Chang Min and Jin Hee’s romance kindle again?

This is such a dramatic show. There is the relationship drama between Chang Min and Jin Hee and meeting again and at the same time, there are so many medical mishaps occurring since they are in an emergency room. Fair warning some of the medical scenes can be a bit graphic and show blood, but it’s not too the extreme. But I think that this is a riveting drama that keeps you hooked from watching what will happen to each patient in the episode, as well as want to know if Chang Min and Jin Hee will end up together in the end.

Let’s Fight Ghost

Welcome back DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Supernatural-Drama: Let’s Fight Ghost.
Starring Kim So Hyun, Ok Taec Yeon, Kwon Yool, Kim Sang Ho, Lee David, and Kang Ki Young.

Park Bong Pal (Ok Taec Yeon) has grown up with the abilities to see and is acting as an exorcist. As a university student, he uses his ability to make money to get rid of weak spirits. When he is called to a high school haunted by a ghost he meets Kim Hyun Ji (Kim So Hyun). Hyun Ji is a high school student who has no memory of her past life or how she died. Having roamed Korea for 5 years searching for answers, she finds that Bong Pal might be able to help her find them. Together the two fight ghosts and help them move on to the after-life.

This seems like such a fun and exciting drama to watch. Taec Yeon and So Hyun have such an amazing chemistry and are simply so funny to watch when they are together. At the same time, I am excited to see how a relationship develops between the two and find out what happened in Hyun Ji’s past and why she has been killed and why Bong Pal can see ghosts in the first place!

Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) is an alien that crash landed in South Korea over 400 years ago. He has special abilities that give him advanced: hearing, sight, and an ability to heal. As he observes humans he continues to feel superior to them. Until he meets Cheon Song Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun), a Korean drama star and becomes Min Joon’s neighbor! Slowly Min Joon starts to fall for Song Yi’s looks and personality.

This was one of the most talked about dramas when it first came out. Filled with fantasy and ‘other-worldly’ romance it will be a tear-jerking romance to watch and experience. Both Soo Hyun and Ji Hyun are a good looking couple and there is a certain chemisty between the two that carry the intense love story.

Pinocchio

Hello again, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic Drama: Pinocchio.

Written by Park Hye Ryun, this 20 episode series aired in 2014.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Set in a universe where there is a rare illness called the ‘Pinocchio syndrome’ where if someone lies they hiccup, Choi In Ha wishes to be a reporter but cannot lie without breaking out into hiccups. Thus it is seen as impossible for In Ha to become a reporter. At the same time Choi Dal Po, In Ha’s adopted brother, has been scorned by the media and wishes to have nothing to do with news outlets. But when In Ha goes to work for a news station, Dal Po follows her. Together they learn how media and news can be corrupt and learn their true feelings for each other.

This is an interesting drama to watch. The idea of the ‘Pinocchio syndrome’ and how it can halt a person’s career is strange to watch but also fascinating to see how In Ha wishes to use it to her advantage. Although it is strange how Dal Po and In Ha have possible relations, it’s important to remember that they aren’t actually related and have a mutual understanding towards each other. Overall this seems like a fun and unique drama that many will enjoy.

Doctor Crush

Welcome back DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic Drama: Doctor Crush.
Starring Park Shin Hye, Kim Rae Won, Yoon Kyoon Sang, Lee Sung Kyung, Kim Ji Soo, and Moon Ji In.
Written by Ha Myung Hee, this 20 episode series aired in 2016.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Hye Jung (Park Shin Hye) was a rebellious teen who has been abandoned, become cold-hearted, and fights. When she is abandoned by her father and left with her grandmother in a small town she meets Jong Ji Hong (Kim Raw Won), a high school teacher and neurologist. Ji Hong helps Hye Jung with her studies and changes her from a school rebel to a student who cares. Years later Hye Jung is now a doctor who’s first priority is to help people as much as she can, although she is still cold-hearted and won’t let anyone close to her. When Ji Hong appears back in Hye Jung’s life, can he change her cold heart to one that lets people in?

This is a very addictive drama. It has romance, drama, and cool action sequences. Although it’s a bit weird that the two main leads are student and teacher, I think there is a certain chemistry between them that keeps the show lively and wanting more. I recommend this drama to anyone that enjoys medical dramas as well as a second chance love story.
