1. Goblin

(I have no idea what episode happened.)

This is the drama with the most remarkable scenes from Korea. OF THE WHOLE KOREA. Certainly my favorite scene is when the Grim Reaper and the Goblin will save Eun Tak from the kidnapping. They come walking perfectly perfect and wonderful, and it comes to shiver all the hairs of the body.

2. WFKBJ

Superthumb Superthumb
(I'm not sure, but I think it happens in episode 12.)

I have so many favorite scenes in this drama that it's hard to choose just one. But I chose this, because I think it's very perfect that Kim Book Joo begins to realize that she likes Joon Hyung. This episode is very cute too.

3. W

(I'm not sure, but I think it happens in episode 4.)

One of my favorite scenes of "W", is when Kang Chul discovers that he lives inside a manga, the scene is simply very well produced.

1. Goblin

For me that was the saddest scene, the longest conversation (seriously, I figured he was not going to die any more), and death more shocking.

2. WFKBJ

This scene makes me want to cry with them. The way Book Joo was so worried about him... It all shook me.

couple, kdrama, and hwang jung eum image
Can you over-romanticize a cherished memory from childhood?

Ji Sung Joon (Park Seo Joon) was a shy, porky kid who was constantly teased by the other kids for his rotund shape. When he transfers to a new school in fifth grade and meets Kim Hye Jin (Hwang Jung Eum), the prettiest, most popular girl in school, his life turns around. The kind-hearted Hye Jin becomes his only friend and protector — and they become each other’s first love. But then everything changes when Sung Joon’s family immigrates to the United States and then Hye Jin’s father’s business goes downhill, plunging her family from their previous wealthy lifestyle. But that’s not all! Hye Jin’s beautiful looks initially took after her mother. But as soon as Hye Jin hits puberty, her father’s genetic skin condition takes hold and leaves her with reddish facial scars that makes her resemble a raccoon.

Fifteen years later, Sung Joon is a whole new person — dashing and handsome and a successful art director — who is transferred from New York to the Seoul office of “The Most” fashion magazine to work as the deputy chief editor. He tries to find his childhood friend, Hye Jin, again. But embarrassed by her current unglamorous appearance, Hye Jin passes off her best friend, the stunning Min Ha Ri (Go Jun Hee), as herself. But when Hye Jin is suddenly transferred to the magazine department at her new job to work as in intern under Sung Joon, how much longer can she keep her true identity a secret?

A drama that disappointed you:

Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사) - 2016

korean, ahn jae hyun, and park so dam image

I am very sad that I have not finished this drama. It's a drama, kind of meaningless, like ... How come you're living with three beautiful and wonderful faces? But you still want to continue, because of Kang Hyun Min, but then you find out she's not going to be with Kang Hyun Min, and that he's actually the second lead. WTF? She and the first lead don't even match, without chemistry or anything. Totally disappointing.

After losing her mother in a tragic accident, Ha Won feels distant from her new family and after a series of fateful events winds up living in a mansion with four handsome men.

First episode of 'My secret Romance'

gif, kdrama gif, and kpop image
Unfortunately I did not find a picture of the scene, but I'm 99% sure it's in episode one.

I have not reviewed the whole episode, just the last scene, several times. They are kissing, and then having sex in the car, obviously they do not show them having sex, but what they have shown has already been too shocking for a Korean drama. I felt very embarrassed watching, which was very strange, but I think I was unacquainted with seeing 'improper' scenes.
