So, you know how much I love South Korean dramas, well, I found the one which now ranks as my favorite.
Why? Well, let’s start with an awesome lead actor, Kim Myung-min who plays Anthony Kim, a shrewd, commanding, businessman who turns every drama he touches into a #1 rated series. Anthony’s all about the dollars and he won’t let anything or anyone stand in his way. When a tragic accident takes the life of one of his employees, he is cast down from his throne. Unfortunately, he destroys the career of an idealistic, rookie writer, Lee Go-eun, played by Jung Ryeo-won, in the process.
Fast forward a few years … we find Anthony struggling to survive. He wants to regain the pride he lost. To prove he is the King of Dramas to those who cast him. To do so, he must gain the help of the writer he burned, Lee Go-eun, by convincing her to trust him with her screenplay Kyungsung Morning.
It's an unholy alliance. The angel and the devil join forces. What results is a hilarious dramedy that leaves me breathless on the edge of my seat every freaking episode. Like Monday nights episode, oh, my gosh, I almost died. Died! The writers have the ability raise the conflict level to nerve-wracking heights. And as soon as one critical situation is resolved, they bring in another.
Also stars, Choi Siwon as Kang Hyun-min, who plays a self-absorbed lead actor in Kyungung Morning. His expressions and mannerisms are so hilarious. Oh Ji-eun plays Sung Min-ah, the lead actress in Kyungung Morning, who shares a romantic past with Anthony Kim. Added into the mix are evil villains in the form of gangsters and CEO's.
This is a delightful show. I highly recommend it.
Yes! When the only entertainment we could afford was NetFlix I used to watch foreign series including "City Hunter" loved that series...check it out if you haven't already. It stars Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young.ReplyDelete
I will definite have to look up The King of Dramas. Your review gave me goosebumps...LOL!
Yay, another K-drama fan. I'm constantly in awe of the high degree of sophistication and skill of the writers of these dramas. Plus, the actors themselves rarely disappoint.Delete
If you love all things Lee Min Ho (like I do) check out Boys Before Flowers and Faith. He's always beautiful to watch.
Sounds awesome! Seriously, what's not to love about K dramas?ReplyDelete
Ditto, I am seriously addicted and I am not seeking an intervention.Delete
