K-Drama Recaps

List of Korean Dramas I’ve Seen and Ratings:

(rated out of a scale of 10, 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest)

*Unfinished means I haven’t finished it, and have no intention of going back and finishing it (unless I’m really bored one day)

*Partial means I saw it on and off when other family members were watching it avidly, but I have never sat down myself to watch it. Nevertheless I have a really good idea about what happens in the series thanks to said family members constantly rewatching and talking about it.

*Ongoing…is self-explanatory.

  1. i like your style of writing, and i agree with you on all FOUR points regarding k-dramas! in fact the 3 dramas i were obsessed with was cp – painter of the wind – yab….all girls dressing up as guys!! i also was wandering around a bit lost after yab, until i chanced upon WUAS….finally allowing me to move on! keep up the writing kaedejun!!

  2. hai kaedejun… I’m your followers… I love your writing style…. It make me laugh out loud sometimes… hahahahha

    I’m glad you starting to watch harvest villa…. This drama is a gem if i must say

  3. I can’t wait so see your rating for harvest villa. This year i have been obsessed with 4 series, harvest villa, comrades, prosecutor princess and giant… The rest of the show i just love watching them, but didn’t reach an obsession level. Like MGIG, coffee house, dr champ, skks, and secret garden. I can’t wait to see your rating for MGIG, too…..

  4. Hi,

    I’ve read your guest posts on Dramabean’s website, but did not know you had your own blog until a few days ago. Loving your style of writing and the fact that we get to see some tidbits and recaps that haven’t made it onto other sites. I also really, really like how you’ve listed all the dramas/movies you’ve seen and added ratings. In fact, I ended up borrowing that for my own blog. I hope you don’t mind. Keep up the good work, and can’t wait to read more of the Signs recaps. 🙂

  5. Did you put the rating for Princess’ Man? I am interested in knowing how you felt about the ending and the rating you would give for the overall show.
