The Fangirl Verdict

Completely biased reviews and fangirling


1. Why the Full List?

Because I get that some of us like to search for stuff by the show itself rather than the type of review, here’s a full list of all the shows that I’ve written about on this site. I’ve included helpful little labels next to each show, to indicate the type of post it is.

The handy-dandy breakdown:

[Full Review] = Lengths will vary, but each contains a Short, Long & Final Verdict

[Flash Review] = Quick, short, spoiler-lite reviews.

[Dropped] = Dropped Drama

2. The Rating System

Understand more about my rating system here!

I hope you guys find this list useful!

  2. Looking excellent! Of course ^^


  3. Are you going to write a review for Pinocchio?


  4. bravo , throughly enjoying your blog , I hope you make an in depth about Lee Byung Hun , he’s my ulitmate fave , swoon


    • Thanks for enjoying the blog, Nancy! 🙂 I won’t say never to a spotlight on Lee Byung Hun, though it definitely has to be when I’m inspired coz the research needed to curate the best photos takes many hours. 🙂


  5. Thanks for your reply !!! I won’t give up hoping 😘

  6. We’re both making reviews but we don’t have the same list. :p Nice sneaking around your website… 😀


    • Hi there, welcome to the site! 🙂 Technically, since you took the time to leave a comment, it doesn’t count as sneaking anymore! 😉 Reviews.. I have so many that I wish I had the time and mental bandwidth to write. I’m sure we’ve seen at least some of the same shows, just that we didn’t happen to review the same ones – yet!

      Liked by 1 person

  7. Are you ever going to do a review of You’re Beautiful? ^^


    • Hi there, A! I don’t have immediate plans to review You’re Beautiful, but I’m completely aware that I might get inspired at some point, to write one. I guess that means my answer is an admittedly vague “Maybe?” 😛


  8. Not that I’m in any way demanding , but I hope for this list to continue to be longer and faster hahaha, this has become my kdrama bible. once again , thank you so very much for sharing your precious time in sharing reviews with us. you are very generous and i feel spoilt by you, truly , love you lots.


    • Tee hee! Your comment totally made me giggle, Nancy! 😄 Thanks for your encouragement, it’s so nice to know that you’re looking forward to more reviews! Real Life demanded my undivided attention for a stretch, and it’s taken me a while to get back into the writing zone. I’ve just posted a new review (yay, me!) – I hope that you enjoy the read! 🙂 I’ve got more reviews waiting to be written, and will try to post more. I must warn that I’ll be traveling a fair bit for work in the next 2 months, so gaps in posting are to be expected. I will do my best to keep up, tho! Fighting, me! ^^


  9. Why is Secret Garden not in the list..??


    • Hey there Angela, Secret Garden’s not on the list coz I never got around to reviewing it. This isn’t a full list of dramas out in dramaland, but more of the full list of shows that I’ve written about on this site. Which excludes all the shows I haven’t seen, and a lot of the shows that I watched before I started this site. Secret Garden falls into the second category. I hope that helps to clarify! 🙂


  10. Have you watch kill me heal me? I would like to read your review about that drama. I am new here and I love your reviews very much.


    • Hi there Sabrina! Welcome to the blog! 🙂 Thanks, I’m so glad you enjoy the reviews – it does motivate me to keep on writing ’em. To answer your question, yes, I have seen Kill Me Heal Me (really liked it!) and I do intend to write it a review. It’s just that I seem to be forever backlogged.. I can’t seem to keep up with the writing! It’ll come though, and hopefully in the not-too-distant future too! 🙂


  11. Is there “You’re Surrounded” review? Because it’s a good cop show though there are some flaws regarding some relationships not explored/developed enough such as Seo Pan-suk’s ex-wife who easily forgives (and forgets) on what had happened to their son.

    Anyway, it’s a good show if anyone likes teams who stick together though each of them are meeting for 1st time unlike Mrs Cop where some members knew (and worked with) each other before rookies came into their department.


    • Hi there RK! Welcome to the blog! 🙂 Unfortunately, I haven’t managed to watch You’re All Surrounded, which is why there’s no review for that show. If I do manage to check it out, I’m more than likely to write about it, but I can’t make any promises, since my watch list is a mile long and I never seem to quite make a dent in it! It’s good to know that you enjoyed the show though 🙂

  13. Im waiting for the review of Healer. Thanks!


  14. hey kfangurl , hope you are having a good new year
    its my 2nd time to post here but I’m a regular visitor
    have u seen cruel city? how was it?
    also have u seen 1 litre of tears?


    • Hi there ahmed!! Nice to see you around here again! 🙂 Happy New Year to you too!

      I’ve seen both shows, and both are worthy watches in their own right. Cruel City is very dark and moody, and quite violent and bloody at times. If you’re in the mood for something noir, it’s a good watch. It took me quite a long time to get into the show and its characters, since noir isn’t my thing, but I must say that by the time I reached the end, I actually felt sorry to leave the show behind. Jung Kyung Ho is fabulously badass in it, and that’s another plus point!

      1 Litre of Tears made me cry, but in a good way. Such a moving true story of a young girl’s fight to live her best life, even when she’s dealt with a disease that will inevitably shorten it. Moving and inspiring, and definitely worth the tears, I say. 🙂


  15. Omg.. I just loveeeee your review especially on oh my ghostess!! I do think that it is sooo frustrating that the real character of na bong sun is somehow disappeared throughout the drama.. T_T Keep writing.. Would live to read more reviews in the future..


  16. I think you will rate Please Come Back, Mister pretty highly. I’m thinking at least A. A+ in my book (and I’ve watched a ton) Also, I feel that You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly was really awesome but a lot of people missed that show. There was a lot of funny scenes and also moments that made my heart truly ache. I hope you give these two dramas a chance!!! 😀


    • Hi there Em! Welcome to the blog, and thanks for the recommendations! 🙂 I’m currently on E5 of Come Back, Mister.. I do like it, so I’m curious to see how this one turns out. I’ll keep You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly as an option for when I’m in the mood for a family drama. They are so high commitment! 😛


  17. I really love your blog and i hope that you can keep reviewing dramas so wel!! Just a thought, have you watched empress ki? Its honestly quite interesting!!


    • Hi there niks! Aw, what a sweet message to leave – thank you! I’m so glad you enjoy the site and the reviews! 🙂 Yes, I do plan to keep at it.. I’m in my busiest month of the year work-wise, so postings for June might be a little limited. But it’s not coz I’ve given up! ^^

      I haven’t gotten around to Empress Ki, but I’ve had it recommended to me by JCW fans upon my JCW Pure Pretty post. I’ll make a mental note to check it out sometime! 🙂


  18. Hey there!
    I highly recommend Pinocchio! I don’t see it on your list but it is without doubt the best drama I’ve watched in recent years!!! It’s got a fantastic plot and lots of chemistry that still makes me swoon 😀


    • Hi there Jay! Thanks for the recommendation – I’ve actually already seen Pinocchio, and I really liked it. I’d rate it an A drama, even. It’s not on this list coz I’m completely backlogged, and I can’t keep up with the reviews. 😛 It’s definitely a drama I’d like to review. Hopefully later this year when my schedule frees up a bit. Fingers crossed!! 🙂


  19. Ohhh.. why haven’t you done a review on Doctors yet? I’ve been waiting for a review to see if it is a must watch. What I watch depends on your reviews.


    • Ah, that’s because I am behind on Docs, and have yet to watch the last 2 eps. I’d say.. it’s not a must-watch. I liked the first 6-7 eps a lot, but then things got pretty slow and boring once we got stuck in the hospital stuff. Some endearing characters though, so if you’re in the mood for a medical drama that feels quite slice-of-life, you might still enjoy it. I still plan to finish it and write about it, but for now, I hope this helps! 🙂

      PS: They do spend a lot of time cutting into skulls and showing surgery stuff. Just FYI, in case you happen to get queasy!


  20. Unnie! Have you watched age of youth? It’s a really good drama, i totally recommend!! If you have watched it, please do a review! I love your reviews its the bestt


    • Hi there Chrisabelle! I have to confess that I haven’t managed to check out Age of Youth yet 😛 It’s totally on my list though! I plan to check it out soonish, and once I do, I will write about it! Thanks for the recommendation, and for your patience! 🙂


  21. Aye Fangirl, you mind if i ask if these are worth watching as well?
    1. Bring it on Ghost
    2. Uncontrollably Fond
    3. K2
    4. Cinderella and the four Knights
    5. Kill Me Heal Me
    6. Healer
    7. Scarlet Heart Ryeo
    8. Love in the Moonlight
    9. Jealousy Incarnate
    Your Reviews give off a very good judgement and very detailed at that. So, could you rate each if its a go or pass?


    • Hi hyunju, sorry that this reply is coming so late. Since you posted this comment, I’ve managed to post a review or two, so you can check those out. In fact, I’ve already written posts on a few of the shows on your list.
      Since you requested it, here’s my recommendation:
      1. Bring it on Ghost – Go. Not bad, pretty cute.
      2. Uncontrollably Fond – Pass. I dropped this.
      3. K2 – Pass. I’m not loving it.
      4. Cinderella and the four Knights – Go, if you’re in the mood for fun fluff.
      5. Kill Me Heal Me – Go, Ji Sung is brilliant in this.
      6. Healer – Go, I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.
      7. Scarlet Heart Ryeo – Pass, unless you love Lee Jun Ki, in which case, watch it for him.
      8. Love in the Moonlight – Go, SO CUTE.
      9. Jealousy Incarnate – Go, if you’re in the mood for a long-ish romance. A bit slow, but it’s ok.

      I hope that helps! 🙂


  22. What’s better, Scarlet Heart Ryeo or Moonlight Lovers? They have the same concept right?


    • I’d say the shows have very little in common, actually. Besides sharing the same timeslot, both being fusion sageuks, and both having the word “moon” in their titles, there is nothing else that is similar between the two shows. Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is the better executed show, and is full of cuteness and feels, while Scarlet Heart is poorly written and rather disjointed and jerky to watch as a result. You can check out my review of Scarlet Heart to get a better idea of what that’s about; I will have a review of Moonlight up soonish as well. 🙂


  23. Is Shopping King Louie any good?


    • Hm.. I can’t quite say yet, I have to confess. I’ve seen only 2 episodes of this, and I liked E1 more than E2. I think if Korean Funny (broad and rather slapsticky) appeals to you, and you don’t mind a male lead who’s more of a man-child, you might like it. 🙂


  24. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo… what do you think about this Drama? Good so far?

    Liked by 1 person

  25. Hi! Just want to know if this is your updated list? I really love your reviews and usually base what I watch on them. ❤


    • Hi Juna, yes, this is my updated list. I update with each new post on the site. That said, I do fall behind on reviews and other posts, so it’s possible I’ve seen a show that isn’t listed. If you’re curious about whether I’ve seen a particular show that isn’t listed, feel free to ask! 🙂


  26. Please do a review for The Legend of the Blue Sea please.. Thanks a lot in advance.. 🙂


  27. Hey kfangurl,

    Going through the list, I’m a tad surprised to find City Hunter missing.

    Any plans on writing it? If not, do or did (coz love for dramas can change!) like(d) it?


    • Do or did you like it?*
      Typo there


      • Hi there Viola, thanks for asking – I did very much enjoy City Hunter. I just watched it before starting this blog, and never got around to writing it a review. I am unlikely to write it a review, unless an urge to re-watch it strikes me, but I will say that I think that’s my favorite show of LMH’s to date. I generally feel indifferent towards him, but actually found him compelling and rather melty in City Hunter. 🙂


  28. Introverted Boss, Missing 9, Tomorrow with You? Tell me what’s good and what’s not.


    • Hi there hyesung, sorry for the late reply. Among the shows you mentioned, I like Tomorrow With You the best – so far. I like both leads and it’s turning into an interesting time travel tale, though the romance angle seems less strong. Introverted Boss is compelling for Yeon Woo Jin, but I’m finding Park Hye Soo hard to like. I didn’t check out Missing 9, but have heard lots of disgruntled reactions to it, and don’t plan on watching it, despite my affection for Jung Kyung Ho. I hope that helps! 🙂

  29. I’ve two things to! I didn’t realize u have this list and since I love ur reviews, this makes things so much easier. 😁 two:wooow still! youve got a pretty hectic schedule girl–you’re. say this after reading most of the comments! Have you seen the Hollywood movie ghost? I feel like us readers are ghosts and just found out that u r Whoopi Goldberg and u can really see us and hear us so we’re flocking you😂😂😂 may u never tire ! Fighting!😘😘😘


    • Hehe, I’m so tickled by the Ghost reference – I’m glad you found this list, Ann, and that you find it useful!! 😀 I’m juggling a lot of Real Life commitments of late, and also, finding that quite a few dramas aren’t really capturing my interest – that’s why the reviews on the blog have slowed down for a bit. But, I’m still here, and will post whenever inspiration strikes! 😀


  30. Hi! what about Goblin? what rate would you give it?


    • Hi there Priya, I’m gonna hafta sheepishly admit that I haven’t finished Goblin yet. I paused my watch because I was starting to feel distracted amid the show’s slow pace, but I also realize that this show is meant to be a slow, thoughtful, introspective sort of watch. So I will definitely go back to it, but when I’m in a mood more suited to appreciate what the show has to offer. Right now, I think I’d give it a B+, but that’s just based on the 10-ish episodes I’ve seen so far, and could most definitely change when I actually do finish my watch. I hope that helps! 🙂


      • thank you so much dear! 🙂 it really helped! 🙂 any idea how is my lovely sam soon? what rating you would give that?


        • My Lovely Sam Soon is a pretty good watch, for a kdrama classic. When I watched it, I liked it quite well but didn’t love it as much as most other folks. I remember finding Kim Sun Ah’s character a little too brash, and I also remember feeling quite uncomfortable at Hyun Bin’s character making out in a big way with the second female lead (it broke kdrama convention to an uncomfortable degree, for me). The humor was also a little too broad for my taste. Overall, I’d give it a B. Most other folks would think I’m mad for not giving it an A though, because it’s such a beloved classic. 😛 I hope that helps!


  31. hey! I was wondering whether you could give me your recommendations with regard to the following dramas. 🙂 AND ALSO WANTED TO ASK YOU WHETHER THERE WERE ANY DRAMAS SIMILAR TO/ON PAR WITH HEALER BECAUSE THAT IS HONESTLY MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE!!!
    1. Kill me Heal me
    2. Reply 1988
    3. Reply 1997
    4. Phantom
    5. Coffee Prince

    THANKS ❤
    love your reviews by the way!


    • Hey there Jenny, I loved R88 & Coffee Prince, and really really liked KMHM. I’d recommend all 3 of those without hesitation. I did like R97 very well, but it’s my least favorite of the Reply series, so I’d sooner recommend AM94. 😉 I didn’t watch Phantom, so I don’t have an opinion on that, unfortunately.

      As for a series similar to Healer, I don’t know if that exists, sadly. But in terms of shows that I’d rate as around the same league as Healer, I do have several. I love C-dramas Nirvana In Fire and Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms, and kdramas Secret Love Affair, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, AM88 and Oh Hae Young Again. They are all different, but generally, I loved all of these shows & would recommend them. I hope that helps! 🙂
