This list is in the order that I watched these dramas/movies in 2019. 

5 weren't used for the Watch Challenge: Encounter, Karn La Krang Neung... Nai Hua Jai, You Who Came from the Star: Epilogue, Secret Garden Special, Put Your Head on my Shoulder Special

  • The Miracle
    The Miracle

    Korean Drama - 2016

    It wasn't the best nor the worst... overall it was just meh. Since the episodes were a short 15 min. each I didn't feel like it was a waste of time. The one thing I really liked about this drama was that they didn't miraculously make the chubby sister slim down and get the guy in the last ep!

  • Love and Fortune
    Love and Fortune

    Japanese Drama - 2018

    I only ended up checking this out because it was on Netflix. For me the relationship felt built off of lust rather than any love, considered dropping it but ended up finishing it anyways. 

  • Our Meal For Tomorrow
    Our Meal For Tomorrow

    Japanese Movie - 2017

    Truthfully I watched since I thought the ML was hot, but I just ended up skipping around while checking out the movie. Didn't hate it.

  • Want More 19
    Want More 19

    Korean Drama - 2018

    Playlist Global Webdramas are always a short yet fun watch. Although this isn't my favorite series by them, it was a cute one overall! :)

  • Encounter

    Korean Drama - 2018

    What can I say other than I loved this drama, I watched it mainly for the cast, but then ended up falling for the chemistry between the leads as well as the AMAZING cinematography! 10/10

  • W

    Korean Drama - 2016

    Overall I enjoyed this drama, only reason it's not a perfect ten is because the last 3-4 episodes got really messy and complex. If the writers stopped trying to be unpredictable this drama would've been better! 8/10

  • Karn La Krang Neung…Nai Hua Jai
    Karn La Krang Neung…Nai Hua Jai

    Thai Drama - 2016

    This Thai drama just became something I felt I had to complete rather than wanted to! It took me forever to finally finish this drama even though I watched it sped up!

  • Secret

    Korean Drama - 2013

    This show was one for the ages I binge-watched it over the course of 2 days! This drama is 100% a Melo, but I LOVED it!!! Honestly the FL did an incredible job I didn't doubt whatsoever that she was heartbroken/sad while crying! A++! 10/10

  • The Vampire Lives Next Door
    The Vampire Lives Next Door

    Korean Movie - 2015

    I'm not sure I understood it completely, but I enjoyed it regardless it was less than 20 min. total. Great cast love Ji Sung.

  • Tender Woman
    Tender Woman

    Chinese Movie - 2014

    It was funny, but the ML spent the entire movie with his GF, and then in the last 5 min. realized he liked the FL back... Meh good not great.

  • I’m Not a Robot
    I’m Not a Robot

    Korean Drama - 2017

    Good not great drama, Honestly the premise was very interesting and I thought both of the leads were great actors, BUT the drama got really slow in the middle. Watched some parts sped up.

  • A Beautiful Mind
    A Beautiful Mind

    Korean Drama - 2016

    This was an interesting Medical Drama, But since it got cut from 16 eps to 14 eps the ending was rather rushed. The Romance was sprinkled on at the end, but the drama felt like it was about the ML, and the FL felt more like a supporting character as the episodes dragged on.

  • Life on Mars
    Life on Mars

    Korean Drama - 2018

    The First episode didn't really capture my attention, but by episode 2-3 I was hooked! The entire cast did an amazing job, all in all I LOVED THIS! This show is funny too, one of the best dramas!!! :) 10/10

  • The Villainess
    The Villainess

    Korean Movie - 2017

    Badass Female Lead, interesting movie. Exhilarating fight scenes, it's a great action movie!

  • Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
    Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

    Korean Drama - 2016

    Super fluffy and cute, feel good drama! I've rewatched this 3 times, enough said. 10/10

  • The Queens
    The Queens

    Chinese Movie - 2015

    Skipped around on it, only checked it out for Shawn Dou and Song Hye Kyo, and it was meh... happy that they were paired together though.

  • Love Clinic
    Love Clinic

    Korean Movie - 2015

    Honestly this movie is ridiculous, the plot doesn't make much sense, and the leads don't have much chemistry. Don't recommend.

  • The Most Beautiful Goodbye
    The Most Beautiful Goodbye

    Korean Drama - 2017

    Given the tragic subject matter I'm seriously surprised that I didn't cry! The acting was great, but I didn't find myself invested in the story nor rooting for/liking any of the character.

  • Animal World
    Animal World

    Chinese Movie - 2018

    Honestly I got a bit lost a couple times while watching this, all in all it was a really dramatic game of Rock, Paper. Scissors lol. 

  • Burn The Stage: The Movie
    Burn The Stage: The Movie

    Korean Movie - 2018

    I stan BTS, so I loved this. Honestly I'm just not a huge fan of documentary's so that's why I gave it a 9.5/10.

  • Drama Special Season 5: I'll Die Soon
    Drama Special Season 5: I'll Die Soon

    Korean Special - 2014

    I watched because of Kim Seul Gi, and surprisingly this wasn't sad at all! I actually laughed at the end, it concluded nicely, but I got a bit bored in the middle.

  • Lust, Caution
    Lust, Caution

    Chinese Movie - 2007

    I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, even the mature scenes didn't feel in poor taste, they looked like they belonged. The story was beautifully told, with near perfect flow. It started off a bit slow hence the reason it's 9/10.

  • The Man From Nowhere
    The Man From Nowhere

    Korean Movie - 2010

    Wow just wow this movie took me on a roller-coaster of emotions, the only reason this is not a perfect ten is because I saw the "twist" ending about the girl coming. The villains were horrendous, and I 100% rooted for Won Bin's character. All in all GREAT MOVIE!

  • Scent of a Woman
    Scent of a Woman

    Korean Drama - 2011

    I've Re-Watched this, and I can't believe how many tears I've shed while watching this drama. AMAZING chemistry, AMAZING acting, and AMAZING story it's a 10/10 for me! :)

  • The Hymn of Death
    The Hymn of Death

    Korean Drama - 2018

    I didn't feel their chemistry, nor believe in this star-crossed lovers "I'm gonna die so I can truly live" BS... Long story short I only watched it for Lee Jong Suk and even then I was disappointed.

  • The Attorney
    The Attorney

    Korean Movie - 2013

    The main leads change from a greedy lawyer to one that seeks justice for his client was a delight to watch! I enjoyed this movie. :)

  • You Who Came from the Stars
    You Who Came from the Stars

    Korean Drama - 2013

    Everyone seemed perfectly cast in this drama. I liked the chemistry that the leads had. I loved the FL personality she was kinda stupid, but in my personal opinion she was the most 3D character in the ENTIRE drama. The ending was unexpected, yet enjoyable! 10/10

  • You Who Came from the Stars: Epilogue
    You Who Came from the Stars: Epilogue

    Korean Special - 2014

    The was just a 2 min. epilogue that continued on from where the drama completed. It was nice and fluffy! :)

  • That Winter, The Wind Blows
    That Winter, The Wind Blows

    Korean Drama - 2013

    Honestly I was so excited for this drama in the beginning I loved the cast, and the story sounded exactly like something that I would like. Although the actors did a great job acting out their parts I just wasn't invested in the story... Long story short I didn't hate it, but it wasn't anything worth reminiscing about later on.

  • Can't Help Falling in Love
    Can't Help Falling in Love

    Filipino Movie - 2017

    It was a cute story, the leads had chemistry. Although the story was cliche I liked it, and the beautiful scenery was an added plus.

  • Scandal Makers
    Scandal Makers

    Korean Movie - 2008

    I loved this so much. The story flowed perfectly, there wasn't a single part that I didn't enjoy! This is such a feel good movie, with amazing acting. 10/10

  • The Suspect
    The Suspect

    Korean Movie - 2013

    Exciting Action movie, with Gong Yoo. The chase scenes where exhilarating, especially the intricate car chases. Great movie all around! :)

  • Busted

    Korean TV Show - 2018

    It was a fun mystery/detective variety show with a lot of my favorite stars in it! I enjoyed it and found myself laughing and replaying scenes. The first few eps. were a bit awkward until the cast got used to each other though, hence the reason why it's not a perfect 10.

  • Illang: The Wolf Brigade
    Illang: The Wolf Brigade

    Korean Movie - 2018

    I felt like this movie was a waste of so many talented actors. I didn't understand the romance AT ALL it felt completely nonsensical. What a waste of time.

  • My Sassy Girl
    My Sassy Girl

    Korean Movie - 2001

    Honestly I loved how non-cliche this was, even up until the very end where they reunited thanks to something unique. BUT there's one MAJOR problem with this movie, and that's the fact that the FL physically hits/slaps the ML on multiple occasions in the movie. Abuse is inexcusable. 7/10

  • The Long Way Home
    The Long Way Home

    Korean Movie - 2015

    The movie had me laughing throughout to the point in which I forgot that it was a "War" movie, that ending was an unwelcome reminder of that fact. I wasn't expecting to love this as much as I did!

  • Coffee Prince
    Coffee Prince

    Korean Drama - 2007

    I've seen this 3 times, it truly is a timeless classic that I will forever love!! 10/10

  • The King’s Case Note
    The King’s Case Note

    Korean Movie - 2017

    The acting was great, but subpar storyline that started off slow and didn't really take off. 

  • An Affair
    An Affair

    Korean Movie - 1998

    I'm surprised that I liked this as much as I did considering the fact that this movie came out in 1998. The leads had great chemistry, fantastic kiss scenes, and the ending made it feeling like they were destined for each other. 

  • Broject

    Korean Special - 2018

    It's a Playlist Global drama unlike anything they've done before. I didn't like it as much as their other stuff, and I saw the ending coming. On the bright side it was only 30 min. total.

  • Temptation of Wolves
    Temptation of Wolves

    Korean Movie - 2004

    The FL pissed me off to the point where I almost dropped this. She was a horrible actress with a grand total of 2 expressions either a blank/stupid look on her face OR a shocked expression. Either way there wasn't a single thing that I found to be charming or attractive about her character so I didn't get why the leads were fighting over her. Disappointing movie.

  • Queen In Hyun's Man
    Queen In Hyun's Man

    Korean Drama - 2012

    This was an easy watch where the leads had great chemistry (they dated IRL), and to top it all off it was a happy ending! Great kiss scenes as well!

  • Fall in Love at First Kiss
    Fall in Love at First Kiss

    Taiwanese Movie - 2019

    My personal favorite version of "Itazura na Kiss" you can actually see the ML liking her back in this one. I really enjoyed it, but I wish it was turned into a drama so some things could've been fleshed out better!

  • Queen of Mystery
    Queen of Mystery

    Korean Drama - 2017

    Thankfully there's a 2nd season because this show ends on a complete cliffhanger! Some cases were more interesting than others, the leads had cute chemistry even though the FL was married. 8/10 I enjoyed it.

  • Extreme Job
    Extreme Job

    Korean Movie - 2019

    It was a funny cop movie. I laughed a couple times, but I would've enjoyed it more if the translation was better, some parts didn't make sense.

  • I Picked Up a Star on the Road
    I Picked Up a Star on the Road

    Korean Drama - 2018

    The comedy is necessary for the leads to be a believable couple, otherwise I'd hate it considering the FL kidnapped the ML. This drama is one that I watched casually and enjoyed to the point where I laughed a bunch of times. The songs are cute, the mystery wasn't obvious, and the leads had okay chemistry. All in all I enjoyed it!

  • Cunning Single Lady
    Cunning Single Lady

    Korean Drama - 2014

    I've seen this twice and overall it's a really easy watch. There's not much depth to the story hence the reason why I'm giving it a 9/10. The leads have cute chemistry, and the FL was different than what I typically see in KDramas.

  • She Was Pretty
    She Was Pretty

    Korean Drama - 2015

    I thought that this was a really cute and feel good drama. I enjoyed each episode, but the plot wasn't that strong to tie me over from the fact that the leads didn't even get together until episode 12. I had a slight case of SLS so I wished that he would've had a happier ending as well... Overall I liked this drama.

  • Kenja no Ai
    Kenja no Ai

    Japanese Drama - 2016

    I thought this was a beautifully done revenge drama! The flashbacks into the FL's childhood give insight into how she is the way she was, but I wish she had been more stern with Yuri (ML's mom) in the beginning, rather than planning out this 20 year long revenge plan!

  • Secret Garden
    Secret Garden

    Korean Drama - 2010

    Such a timeless drama, I was surprised that I enjoyed this the amount I did, considering it aired almost 10 years earlier. Loved the multiple steamy/deep kisses. The body swap aspect made it even more fun to watch because you got to see the ML acting all girly & vice versa for the FL. I loved it! 

  • Secret Garden Special
    Secret Garden Special

    Korean Special - 2011

    I felt a bit sad after finishing up this gem, so watching this behind the scene interviews and NG's made up for it a little. Gosh I loved Secret Garden!

  • She's on Duty
    She's on Duty

    Korean Movie - 2005

    I watched it mainly for the Gong Yoo & Kim Sun Ah pairing, but even though this movie is almost 15 years old it was a enjoyable watch. Action, Comedy, Romance with deep kisses between the stars I liked it!

  • Put Your Head on My Shoulder
    Put Your Head on My Shoulder

    Chinese Drama - 2019

    This drama was all around funny & cute, it wasn't too dramatic or intense, but it stayed interesting throughout, honestly the most surprising thing was how each episode seemed to breeze by I had multiple moments of thinking "wait... did 45 minutes just go by?!" The secondary couple is my main source of complaint, I didn't like either of the characters and didn't ship that pairing, they truly just took away screen-time from my cute mains! This drama was based off a novel by the same author that wrote "A Love so Beautiful" and I 100% prefer this drama! 9/10

  • Put Your Head On My Shoulder Special Episode
    Put Your Head On My Shoulder Special Episode

    Chinese Special - 2019

    I'm just giving it the same rating I gave the drama, this ending special was extra cute because you get to see their married life + an interaction with their son! <3

  • Children of Nobody
    Children of Nobody

    Korean Drama - 2018

    The acting was stellar all throughout there was not a single weak-link in this cast, but a HUGE shoutout to all of the amazing child stars for truly bringing tears to my eyes several times with their performances as abused children! This drama is one that I don't think that I'll forget anytime soon, the big mystery behind who Red Cry was had me guessing up until the very last episode! Such a masterpiece 10/10

  • Thirty But Seventeen
    Thirty But Seventeen

    Korean Drama - 2018

    Each character was acted out well, and there was a multitude of different personalities/backstories, BUT there wasn't enough plot to tie me over from the fact that it took 12 episodes for them to kiss. This drama started out really interesting but then it dragged in the middle, and the ending felt really rushed. I didn't have SLS because for me he was more like a close friend/puppy than a potential love interest. All in all this drama was good but not great.
