A Year in Review: KDrama Watching in 2010

I debated for a while on whether I should write up this post. I mean, come on – every other Kdrama blogging site is doing one. Or, the ones I read do. I also admittedly have skimmed through a lot. Yes. Skim.

I have to say that 2010 was a big year for me in terms of dramas. I have never worked so closely with dramas before, and recapping is a pure joy. As I was compiling the list, I realized that I saw more dramas than I ever have in my entire life. Some were not to completion, and some were fleeting. But I included them in the list because I get to explain why I didn’t continue a certain drama. I also realized that I watched a LOT of SBS dramas. I also saw a lot of dramas that were not made or released in 2010, but more like catching up.

So here goes, a review of dramas I saw that came out in 2010 – the good, the meh, and the bad.

BEWARE – spoilers may abound with these pictures, depending on how far you are in the series.

Oh! My Lady – Episode 1-2 Review

Oh My Lady was not really a drama on my radar, but I watched it since I was curious – it’s supposed to be a drama version of the movie Speedy Scandal. What’s interesting is that it’s not just one little kid – but two! And they’re not all passed off as Cha Tae Hyun’s progeny. One is Choi Si Won’s, and the other is Chae Rim’s – thus throwing two single parents under the same roof.

Edison Chen is announcing his comeback. (I laff.) After the infamous scandal where compromising photos of him with famous female celebrities were leaked, he escaped Hong Kong a couple of years ago. (If you haven’t heard of this scandal or even made oblique references to him in a joke, you must be living under a rock.) Now he will be working on a new album and hopefully star in a few films. He will also be based mostly in Taiwan. (I laff again.)
