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’.

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. But will they start to build a romance as they continue to meet each other?

Jeju Island Gatsby by itself has a beautiful location on a quaint island resort. The two leads, Kang So Ra and Yoo Yun Suk, have an undeniable chemistry together and add to the mix the delicious food being served at ‘Warm and Cozy’ this is the perfect drama to watch on a spring afternoon with a nice breeze with some good food.

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.

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.

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.

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.
