Who run the WORLD! GIRLS

This is a story of 3 women that refused to accept their tragic fate and pursue their dream to be successful businesswomen. Pan er who's witty and a very good manager, San Niang who's a good cook, and Yin Zhang a pipa master. Together they embark on the journey to the Capital to be one of the most respected business owners out there.

Strength:
1. Character growth- All their struggles and hardships became the window of their character and attitude to face those people who belittle them.
2. Natural act of love- Definitely my standard drama on how to act like a normal couple. ZP and GQF show how to deal with the problems, how to support each other as well as the physical contact between them. Just a perfect way how a couple hugs and a kiss. YES, viewers! They kiss like they are deeply in love with each other.
3. Aesthetic view and costume- Every scene was perfect even and the costume really fits them well..

Weakness;
1. I think they can stretch it until 50 episodes just to tie up the relationship between GQF's father and Minister Qi, it looks like they rush it since it has a limited number of episodes.

But overall it was an enjoyment to watch... I purchased the express just to finish it and it's worth every penny. All the characters really did a great job!! :)

One problem of watching historical drama was its length which sometimes leads to being bored to watch and just skip episodes or just watch the ending episode just to get out on that drama and move on. And the Horse Doctor is one of the exemptions. This was a pure joy to watch. It was fun, sad, intense and satisfying. This was my first saguek medical drama and I never imagined that a medical story in 50 episodes can be this good and intense without much of fighting scene that we usually watch. Horse Doctor was a hidden gem. Hide from viewers because of low rating. But if you have a little interest in medical drama or just a fan of Jo Seo Woo you need to watch this.
Story/Plot:
The horse doctor gave a pure and perfect story on how a young veterinarian became a Royal Physician in a world of full discrimination and status in life was very important. Warning: if you are not used to watch a bloody and heart attack surgery, well you must prepare yourself. I watch this with my sister and every time Kwangho made a surgery we just scream because of the intensity of the scene. But then I will rewind it and watch it again.:) My favourite was when he treated the Queen Mother(it you’re curious you need to start this now.. ?) It made me engaged until the end how our hero will succeed and adapting in the environment from treating animals to human. The story made a perfect plot and giving me knowledge about the difference and similarities of being a vet to human Doctor. What I really love this was they didn’t rush the transition of the main lead from being a vet to a doctor instead they carefully plan it and apply his experience from the long journey.
Character:
There are many great characters in this story but I will give my top 5 characters in here.
(1) Baek Kwanghyon – played by my new favourite actor Jo Seung Woo. I saw him in the Classic and then there’s no turning back. I watched most of his drama now and he was really good in Stranger, God’s gift 14 days and Marathon. He gave an absolute stunning acting here as a kind, funny but has a strong sense of justice as a doctor. Kwanghyon will be my favourite doctor ever. He was funny but serious type when he treats his patient. Why Jo Seung Woo nailed his character? It’s because of a pure skill in acting together with his genuine smile and eyes.
(2)Dr Juman Ko- baek Kwanghyons’ mentor. Why he’s my top 2? Because he was the best mentor that I’ve ever watch. He’s so likeable and I bet all watchers will feel the same way. Grandpa gave a stunning performance indeed.
(3) The King- Most of the time when I watched sageuk drama I’ve never like the King and this is the first time that I admired the king until the end. He’s a just King. A faithful King to his nation and a loving member in a Royal family and friends.
(4) Princess Shukwi- A stubborn and childish princess which at first you will be annoyed. But what I admired is she won my heart because of that childish attitude added with a pure heart. The writer did a great job portraying a princess character. I laugh and cry with her. So many great moments.
(5) Dr. Yi- A villain is a villain indeed. I never thought I will hate his character so much because I have sympathy to him at first. The actor played this did an amazing job to be hate this much. Well he must be. Which means that he was a very effective a villain character.

There are many amazing characters that I will not describe. You need to watch it guys and appreciate their characters such as Nurse Inju,Master Saam, KaYoung, Kwanghyons’ vet buddy, all the royals and all the villains gave a stunning performance. I think you thought why I didn’t talk much about JinHyung. Her chemistry w/ Kwanghyon was a top notch and I love their relationship development it’s just that I cannot feel her character because she was overwhelmed with the character of Baek Kwanghyon. Since I’m an avid fan of romance in the drama, it’s a first for me to feel that I’m more interested on how Kwanghyon rise to the top and become a Royal Physician. If you watch this because you love her in Queen Seon Duk(one of my favorite) don’t be discourage. She did a good job here, its just that well Jo Seon Woo gave a strong character.

Soundtrack:
All the soundrrack here fits every scene. Hats off who organize all the songs. Actually my favourite of all was the BGM whenever Kwanghyon has a surgery. That was really intense.. ?

Overall it was 20/10 for me. To all saguek and medical fan out there or to those who wanted to start with medical dramas, this is the right choice for you. I savour every moment of this. Jeezzz.. So after this, I don’t have anything to watch because I cannot get over to this one… I just wanted to say that Jo Seoung Woo. Go get many contracts! I wanted to see you again in historical dramas ASAP!! ?

Character driven drama with amazing story line.

A very interesting story of Li Shi Min's reign of the Tang Dynasty. If you are familiar with the history, it added to the enjoyment, knowing some real-life characters and how LSM started to unite/conquer many lands.

Story:
It started with the journey of Li Changge in her revenge but it became the journey of the characters for self-growth. Even the antagonist got their own stories and I pitied them at the end. Maybe the flaws that I can comment on is sometimes it feels like it was a shortcut to how they resolved the problems. Maybe because of the number of episodes. But nevertheless, it was enjoyable and exciting to watch.

Acting/Cast:
They chose the best actors that can portray the characters. Well done team!
Changge- Dilraba was so fit in the role of a strong and independent woman. In the middle, really hated her attitude and almost dropped this but I'm glad that I gave it a 2nd look because she became a matured princess and warrior. Looking forward to Reba getting this kind of role again.

Asun-Ahh.. My boy Feli Liu has grown up. A manly, strong, and capable guy. He really acted well how Asun must be.

Leyan- Lu Si perfectly portrayed the cried princess turning into a very brave and inspiring princess of Tang. She got the best character growth. Her sufferings and experienced from the journey made her strong and understand the people of Tang.

Hao Du- My newly discovered gem in the c-drama world. I cannot put into words how much I love this guy. A cold, arrogant, cold-blooded killer wolf but with a tender and kind heart behind that sullen look. What I love about this guy is his micro expression which is best for this kind of role. He conveys his feelings with that eyes. No need for big gestures. His character was so well written that most of us were rooting for him to have a happy ending. He's my favorite character. Great job Liu Yu Ning!!

The others did a great job esp. A Dou, Li Shi Min, Du Ru Hui, Li Jing(although I wanted to have more screen time for him), Situ Lang Lang, Mu Jin,She Er, and many many more.

Song :
It's a perfect 10 for me. Never skip the OP and ED song. All the ost and soundtrack were cool and amazing. Cannot complain.

Overall I really enjoyed TLB and I can see myself rewatching it. I laugh and cried. The first time that I am active in the comment section. Everyone was excited and I love to share my insights and feelings in every episode.

It all does made sense

A meticulous plot and a wonderful set of characters. You are about to enter into a rollercoaster of tight gripping plot that will give you everything that you need.

It's really hard to maintain the intensity and enjoyment in this kind of genre but glad this one really stands out and just breaks all my worries. It's 15 episodes of pure entertainment and no boring episodes. It will put you at the end of your sit. Every scene, every reset was important, unlocking how they will go out in this tragedy.

Hats off to all the characters. They did an amazing job, especially the 2 main characters. Just a perfect blend of thriller and suspense..
They wrap the finale nicely and I am really satisfied with it. Just 10/10. No questions ask. Just go to the ride and trust me you will never regret it..

"Be the change you wanna see in the world"

Surround yourself with good people. Whether they're the best or not, people are capable of learning if they've got good hearts and they're good souls. -Kid Rock-

A delightful drama of pursuing your dreams in a world full of discrimination.

Having an intelligent, and witty female character is truly a treat for me. Even the antagonist gave a magnificent performance. You will be inspired and make you assess yourself for what person you are right now and who are the people that influence you because they will contribute to your growth and beliefs in the future.

Everyone gave a magnificent performance but I must commend the character of Liu Yan/Lord Ding. He inspired me to be humble and be a good person but not let others manipulate me and stand my ground. His discernment was impeccable. If I would become a mentor in the future, I want to be like him.

So proud of how Liu Chen and Zhouhua's characters grew and became the core and pillar of the kingdom. The drama shows how important to surround yourself with a good person being part of the light in your road ahead.

Princess Ruija perfectly portrays another way to be an effective villain. Her demure and angel-like face is more formidable than those people who directly attack you.

Overall it's a top-tier drama. My only complaint is I think it can stretch until episode 50 because I wanted to see LD, Emperor Chen and Zhouhua govern the country.

Gesture speaks louder than words.

Another beautiful story of true love that is worth my tears.

For me, the strong point of this drama is recognizing the weight of their duties and responsibilities whether you are royal or not. All the decisions by the characters were justifiable and even I as a viewer understood and accept it otherwise it will ruin the plot of the story and it will become a regular plot drama.

It's the first time that I watch Bai Lu but I'm a big fan of Allen Ren that is why I give it a chance and whoever cast them must have a raise. I cannot imagine anyone that can portray ZSC as much as Allen did. He really nailed that gentle but strong-minded ZSC. Allen really shines in historical drama.

And also hats off to Bai Lu with that magnificent performance. She really made me cry and I can feel her pain.


The OST was phenomenal and it really fits every important scene esp between the leads.

Overall, this journey was really worth my bucket of tears. What an amazing drama. The only downside of this is I will be in a drama slump for weeks and I will keep repeating those amazing scenes.

If I will not going to write a review to this magnificent journey, Lin Shu will probably get mad at me. Actually as I wrote this, I didn’t know how to start describing this drama coz you cannot understand the vague feeling that I have right now unless you watch this show. THis is not a revenge plot but try do things right...

Confession: NIF was the only historical drama that I didn’t skip episodes because you just can’t. Every episode was linked so you cannot miss any of it..

Story:10/10- I must say, the writer was a genius!! What I love about this drama is it was not rush to show how they achieved their goal. Every plan, every step, every person that is involved was important and it really display how the imperial court change because of Lin Shu’s magnificent tactics and strategies. Wow just wow. How they come up with that kind story??. It was well crafted from start until the end.. well done!!

Cast:
Lin Shu/Zhu Ze/Mei Chang Su- How can I describe this guy??!! Hu Ge was perfect for this role. A very sick but genius tactician was the heart of the story. Seriously he can never be ill and I’m really nervous whenever he’s in critical stage coz it will be disaster to all the people around him. I feel that all plans must be approve by him or else it will be a tragedy. That is how important his role is. I love how he didn't intend to get revenge but try to make things right.....
Prince JinYang- Jin Yang will be my most slow-to-pickup character ever!!but It has reason to that and Im glad that he was like that..watch this to know what I mean? I watched this prince grow from being reckless, well he’s still reckless until the end? until he became a good ruler.
General Meng-ahhh.. My favorite general. A funny,simple minded,honest, strong and very loyal general meng. I really love the interaction bet. him and other characters especially Lin Shu and Fe Lui. I have many laughs to this guy.
Consort Jing- This is the first time that I appreciate this kind of character. Jingyans mother was intelligent, gentle and a loving person to him and Lin Shu. She’s not like other consort that can be manipulate. A very graceful mother. I want to be like her actually.. ?
Fei Liu- This young boy will be my favorite bodyguard in dramaland. An outstanding fighter with a childlike attitude but very loyal to su gege.. I think all who watched this drama love him so much..
The other character that I love is the funny YuJin, beautiful Ni Huang, Jing Rui w/ a big heart, the great emperor, a genius physician Lin Chen but I hope he shows in many episode, all the body guards of Lin Shu and Jin Yang… In short all the characters was awesome even the villains like xia jang and xie yu.


Over all it was 11/10. I want to have a separate drama that shows the early life of Lin Shu.. What can I say you need to rewatch this well-crafted, magnificent, awesome drama.. WHY I WATCHED THIS! It’s hard to let go!! ?

Sometimes you need to have a 2nd look before you appreciate wonderful dramas. Though each episode is 1 and a half hour, I've never skip any scenes,I was going in the flow until I realized that it as already end. It was super fun, sad, sympathy is strong here, very memorable story indeed.

Story:10/10
The writer of this Prison Playbook was a genius..every scene was beautifully made.

Characters:20/10
Like the others, I cannot pick who will be my favorite coz everyone was freaking good. from the cellmates, correction officers and the villain gave a wonderful acting skills here... :) even the supporting actors like Joon Ho's brother, The warden(one of my favorite :)) and of course our favorite Lieutenant Paeng!!!!!

Music:10/10
One of the reason why the dark humor was so great in here is because of the background music.. :) Really love it!! :)


Overall it was a fun ride. I watched it after my surgery in my stomach part and it really gives me pain coz I laugh so hard in this one... Magnificent story. One of a kind... You need to watch this guys... :) You will love it... :)

Family comes First. Close Family ties. That will teach you in this drama. This is my first time to watch a war drama and I can't believe that I will love this. The Hu family will be remain in my heart forever. Taking care of each other no matter what or how difficult it was. The cinematography, characters all of it was perfect!!!

Plot: This was a slow pace from episode 1-10. But please don't stop. It just built the story for the cast and after episode 10 it will be a good drama. It gave the feeling the hardship of being in the war and no one is exception for this.
Characters: Not gonna lie at first I started to watch it because of Wallace huo but at the end you will love all the characters. My favorite characters are:
1. Xue Jun Shan- This guy was an epitome of a good pillar of the house. At first you will be annoyed to him but in the end I've became a fan of him so much. I cried. A very kind and caring brother-in-law. A funny guy, a loving husband, a good friend. So I got teared up while writing this one..
2. Gu Qing Ming- A very honest and dedicated military officer indeed. I must say he surpass his acting in the love me if you dare. He gave a pure and honest emotion. My favorite scene is when he interacts with Jun Shan. They really look like brothers...
3. XiangXiang- At first I was really annoyed to xiangxiang but she really matured in the middle of the story. The fiesty xiangxiang was so perfect to arrogant but kind Gu Qing Ming..

Some of the characters that I like is the assistant of Gu qing ming and Jun Shan they are very loyal. I love also the major general of quing ming.

Overall this will be one of my favorite and it open my heart to try different genre. I will definitely watch it again. Thank You Battle of Changsha

A drama that is worth to keep in your little box of treasured dramas

My Treasure is a drama that I wanted to keep to myself and don't want to put this on hype. hmm.. It's like a mini treasure that you don't want to share with others. Kinda selfish aren't I? Well, it's already underrated and was hidden to many viewers because maybe it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Why I love this?
1. It magnificently tackles the real nature of humans.
The ability to survive in this harsh world whatever your status in life, the morals and dignity of a person, the effect of trauma and guilt from the past, and also the power of a parent's love to their children. Even the real situation of being an employee and understand their decisions. It's not just about loyalty but also some variables that you need to consider.

2. All the cast did a great job even the villains.
Trust me you will be pissed off with them. I would like to commend Vicky Chen for her wonderful portrayal as Dong Na and Liu Min Tao as Xiao Xia. Even though sometimes they see Xiao Xia as a very annoying mother(sometimes I was annoyed to) but I understand her because my mother was like that. They cannot control their emotions especially when it comes to their children.

3. The subtle romantic scene.
If you are hesitating because of the age gap between Dong Na and Gu Fei, do not fret my friend. It was meticulously planned not to push in the age gap boundary but still gave me a lot and squealing and butterfly in the stomach moments. It was so cute that you will never think about their age. It's much much better in other romantic dramas that they gave you an all-out affection but then you get tired and dropped it. Here, it was slowly build up while sorting their past and grow together emotionally and mentally. Such amazing chemistry. oh.. I almost forgot about the very cute and mature relationship of Xiao Xia and Uncle Wang.

4.Charismatic Gu Fei.
Roy Chiu.. It's been almost 8 years since I saw him and I never disappoint because he aged well like a fine wine and truly improved his acting. Aside from being a really handsome and charismatic Gu Fei, his way of showing those microexpressions was exceptional. His mannerisms with his eyes and hands when he was awkward and nervous was stellar and don't forget that BEAUTIFUL smile. Also, Gu Fei was also a mentor that you wanted to meet. He will teach and guide you for the better even if he was harsh sometimes, you will never hate him.

Every relationship between the characters was very funny and touching. I really really enjoyed this a lot. As much as I wanted to keep this drama to myself, I do hope that it gets the recognition it deserves. hmmm... maybe I can create an article to promote this.

What kind of life you have right now?

A journey of self-awareness, reflection, and blissfully liberating yourself to be the better version of yourself.

Each sibling had their own issues, dream, and views in life that we can relate to at least one of them. And for me, I learned something from each one of them . CH reminds me how to have empathy for others, or give your all in everything that you do. Take a leap of fate and enjoy the little things. I love his character so much. For KJ, a struggle for women who wanted to find perfect love, and if that happens, you must give it all. And MJ gives me the strength to be brave and I like her silent approach to the problems. She's not shouting or wrecking things just like in the other dramas, but here, her stare can give you chills or her inner monologue can relate to others, well because we are most like that somehow.

Each character got a very important part in the drama. Our Mr. Gu of course as well as the others like the Yeom parents, siblings friend, their co-workers, everything was memorable. Every line strikes your heart.

It's a drama that you can go back and watch whenever you are feeling empty because it reminds you that it's okay to feel like that. It's a comfort drama. A subtle and relaxed feeling.

Magnificent and Amazing is still an understatement of how to describe this unique and memorable drama.

My Love Eun Dong gave me a strong inspiration to write a love story. Maybe you will see this as a typical love story but there's something unique about this drama. This drama was definitely in my top 5 because:

Story:
The story touched my heart to the core. What I love about this is it flows very smoothly.. When I watch love story I focused in the 2 main lead and desperately waiting to them to be together that sometimes I didn't enjoy the flow of the story. But this drama made me feel every episode and think how it will work out. The pacing of the story was so good that it didnt bother me that they didn't got back together that easily especially in their situation.
Character:
From younger version to the adult version I will give a 2 thumbs up for the producer of this drama. They suit it perfectly, They act their character perfectly..
Park Hyun Soo
The 17 and 27 years old version of Hyun Soo did a really good job... Love love 17 year old version of Hyun Soo. His attitude and coolness was awesome.
But Joo Jin Mo stole the show.. Why i only knew him last July 2016. His goofiness made me love him more..haha.. in his age, I didn't thought that he can be funny like that. I keep replying his funny scene and it always cracks me up. And I know girls, He's one of the rarest guys that can carry a suit like that.. Very manly that has a 17 year old quirkiness.. I rarely appreciated a guy in a suit and he became one together with Federer, So Ji Sub and Barney(HIMYM).
Eun Dong
Eun Dong was a lovely character. For me the adult Eun Dong, Kim Sa Rang did a good job. I love how she act simple like that.. Maybe some of the viewers seem to think that she act plainly, but that's the perfect acting for that particular situation coz she need to balance her heart and her family.

Music:
The OST was really really good. Especially the " I guess I love You" and Eun Ho and Eun Dong theme song... This song was in my playlist..

Overall it's a 10/10 for me. It has some flaws but it's the second time that I didn't binge watching a kdrama. I feel every episode and watch it slowly... What I love about this is, it's not a whole time crying scene. There's so many funny moments that balance your emotion.. Love the poster for this drama..
So guys try it.... It was worth to watch.

Oh although it was accidentally my favorite actor Jung Kyung Ho and Joo Jin Mo share the same name as Hyun Soo. Park Hyun Soo(JJM in My love Eun Dong) and Kang hyun Soo(~JKH in Smile You). I had the same shoe like Eun Dong(haha.maybe all of us that converse shoe). And I had the same reaction as Eun Ho when he lay down on that couch, coz I'm like that whenever I got home from work or just chilling out.. haha..

The journey is all that matters

This drama is a truly a treat before the year ends. It has all the great things that you need in the drama. The cinematography, great characters, wonderful acting, amazing character growth, fabulous fighting scene, lovely romance, badass leads, np damsel in distress, intelligent characters. What more can you as for?

I gave it a perfect 10 because this one has a really great plot. Despite of the create your own ending part, every episodes is a joyful to watch...I never get bored or fast forward because it was pure entertaining. The best part of this drama is the brotherhood. Gosh!! Our diplomatic team went to a journey in a rush, without much planning ,but because everyone is capable enough. they got through in all the obstacles. But more importantly your will LAUGH!!!

I just want to highlight my best Chief.. Ning Yuan Zhou played by Liu Yuning. My guy really improved a lot! And NYZ is the leader that was needed with full of people that was chaotic and got different personalities. He stand firm like a true boss. He was intelligent and strong. A true leader that you can count on. But when he was with his lover Ruyi, gosh! He was like a new person, sweet and know how to handle a strong woman. They truly are a power couple. They are really made for each other. No one can handle a strong, intelligent and reserve NYZ and the same with Ruyi which was independent and strong.

Such a wonderful drama and I can rewatch this without hesitation despite of the angst at the end because the acting is so touching and moving that I can watch them again and again while I'm sobbing in my pillow.

Do not hesitate.. It's a magnificent drama.

Who am I to judge

A crime thriller centered on a serial killer during the Wan Li Period and trying to figure out why the murderer did what they did in relation to the crime that occurred 20 years prior.

What I love;
1. The cinematography and costume is meticulously crafted and makes you feel the common life in the Wan Li Period. The portrayal of being a commoner, bailiff and official is close to realistic which is not common now in the drama.
2. Each episode is important to solve the crime so you need to be attentive in every scene and every character in the drama.
3. Wonderful performance of every character.

Lastly: LU ZHI

I fell in love with Sangeng in the first episode because of his morals and exquisite face expression. And now Lu Zhi appears, a beggar who was taken in by Lu and raised in his home. He was presented as a good-natured, capable household manager who may have a better future if commoners in the current Dynasty were given more opportunities to advance. You will be able to relate to his character, who is willing to serve everyone around him and simply wants to establish a stable family. However, I believe that he is pushing his luck and running the risk of harm due to all the secrets he possesses when he "accidentally" or by pure coincidence discovers the secrets of others. However, he stayed devoted and compassionate, even trying to mediate their differences, but life is unjust.
He was driven to the brink in some way, and like the other reviewer noted, he would be a wonderful person if he could just have a guardian who could refer to him as a father figure. I was greatly impacted by his nuanced character, and I doubt I will forget him for a very long time.

Overall, it was a fascinating journey of investigating crimes in a subdued setting. This is not an action-packed drama, so I'm not sure if it's for everyone, but its strongest feature is understanding each character and how their actions lead to the tragic conclusion of a horrific serial killing.
Try it guys!

Why I like this movie? Because its timeless. It’s sad, funny, romantic and it chases you for a very long time. Its very rare for me to feel satisfaction in the very end of the movie and this was the first one. It was created beautifully, lovely at the same time...So much wonderful feels even the sad ones. All the characters were very likable even the supporting actors. everything was amazing. But I need to say this. Joon Ha's smile made me feel that its wonderful to live. Its like a rare gem, so much emotion.
Music was wonderfully made for this movie.a classical song for a very classic story.

It made me think that I didn't understand much about love. Its not all about happiness its about the timeliness of the love for each other no matter what happen.

Overall this will be in my heart forever.
