1. What do the labels mean?

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!

Edited to add:

3. Shows that aren’t on this list

If you’re looking for a show and it’s not on this list (like Goblin, Mr. Sunshine or Six Flying Dragons, for example), it might be in this post, or this sequel post, where I talk about dramas that I haven’t written dedicated posts for.

I hope you guys find this list useful!

Blade Man.

Another title is Iron man. But for me, if you wanted to compare the male character to a hero from Marvel , it would be the incredible hulk. Instead of turning green, he grows blades.
I thought the acting was excellent overall. I’m not counting the game team, as they were just eye candy. Well, if they can act, they didn’t get much of a chance to show it here. I thought the drama had some powerful scenes with the second female lead.
But her pain spells are more or less forgotten after a while.
The villain ie the one who indirectly caused the second female lead’s condition doesn’t get punished, I’m not quiet sure what the point of the fainting spells was. As far as I remember, she fainted once or twice. It looks like it’s going to a big issue. But it’s never really pursued. We hear, that she gets fainting spells.
But I don’t recall seeing her get any before.
So the story is I guess this young woman , who blames herself for what she sees as a misdeed, and tries atone for it by helping others become better. But I see this as quite overbearing at times.
The story was fine, although you could see where it was going.
But for me, it was the acting that made this drama work. Oh, it has some nice locations as well,

Oh, I’m glad you enjoyed Blade Man, Martin! I didn’t get around to checking it out (the premise didn’t really appeal to me), but it’s great to know that it was a solid watch! 🙂

Hallo there!!! I follow your reviews very closely, cause I really love how you put everything into words. Like I think if only I was as good with words as you are, your reviews are exactly how I’d put my feelings toward certain shows. Super agree with your reviews on Misaeng, Weightlifting and Reply 1988. Pretty sure, your review on Prison Playbook is also on point (haven’t watched it yet).

Knowing that you like those kinds of dramas (thoughtful, deep and moving) I recommend you watch tvN’s Live! The lead is Lee Kwang Soo (not sure if you’re a fan of Running Man, but anyway)~ Seriously, it’s a great show — not saying it’s perfect. Sung Dong Il is there too!!! And you know how great an actor he is. It may be dragging at times, but I assure you the heart of the show is really something worth watching. Hope you do add it on your Watch list. 😀

Keep it up!

Aw, thanks antitled, for your sweet, encouraging words! <3 Also, hi5, that we feel so similarly about so many shows! 🙂 If that's the case, I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy Prison Playbook too 😉 Thanks for the recommendation on Live – it wasn't on my list before, but now it is, thanks to you! I hope I end up enjoying it as much as you did! 🙂

Review on Memory Lost? (Chinese Drama)

5 years ago

Hi there Annie, I’m sorry to say that Memory Lost isn’t on my planned list of shows. Do you highly recommend it? I’ve seen it compared to When a Snail Falls in Love and Love Me If You Dare, and both of those shows didn’t quite work for me, unfortunately.

Hi there, thanks for asking! This is the updated list of posts on this blog, but not an updated list of dramas in the dramaverse. So since I haven’t seen everything, and I also haven’t posted about every single thing I’ve seen, this wouldn’t be a complete list in either sense of the word. But if you’re looking for a post on a show on this site, if it exists, it’ll be on this list! I hope that helps 🙂

Hm.. that’s a great question. There are a few dramas that I’ve seen, that I loved, that I just never got around to writing reviews for. Two that come to mind are Kill Me Heal Me, and Pinocchio. I think I would give both those shows an A or A- grade, so if you’re keen to watch all my A rated shows, I suggest adding those two to your list! 🙂 I hope that helps!

I have just finished “Prison Playbook” and I thoughly enjoyed the series. Each episode is 1 1/2 hours in length. The concept of this story interested me because my grandson is a relief pitcher in the minor leagues and has been a professional baseball player since graduating from college. On a personal level, I love baseball (the main character wore a variety of baseball caps and when I saw him wear the LA cap, I thought, that’s my team! All of the actors, majority males, were excellent. I like the fact that most of the main characters were depicted in their youth at sometime in the story.
I’m not sure what the Korean prisons are like but the rules seemed more lenient than here in the USA. Basically the story is a bromance , as a female viewer I did like the smattering of the female roles which were woven in and out of the storyline. The majority of the actors had to cry in some point of their story and I’m wondering if there is a method to be able to start the tears flowing at just the right time? I will be interested fangirl in your review of this kdrama.

5 years ago
Reply to  Carol Shibuya

Glad you enjoyed the watch, Carol! 😀 I’m not an actor myself, but I think starting the tears at just the right time, is probably achieved via a mix of actual acting skills – and multiple takes, in the process of filming 😉 I’m happy to hear that show was great; I plan to start on it pretty soon myself, so I expect a review will be coming in the foreseeable future! 🙂

Hey there hrinik! Thanks for enjoying the reviews! 😀 I have Prison Playbook pretty high on my list; it sounds like something I’d enjoy, plus it’s by the PD who did all the Answer Me dramas, which I love. Double plus! 😀 I haven’t gotten around to starting it yet, but I will, soon! 🙂

Carol, have you watched Answer Me 1988 (also known as Reply 1988)? It’s directed by the same PD who directed Prison Playbook. I loved Answer Me 1988 a whole lot. <3 If you're in the mood for a bit of retro, and enjoy dramas that showcase not only the main romance, but also give the spotlight to friendships, family and community, I'd highly recommend it as one to add to your list 🙂

By accident, I happened to come upon your site when looking for a review of a recent kdrama I watched on Netflix, “Nine”. This series impacted me so much that I had to find some resolution upon the ending which left me having questions. A beautiful film that I still ponder 🤔 on the meaning. The first kdrama I watched on Netflix was “This Is My Love” which I enjoyed but I don’t see a review of this drama on your list. In choosing another kdrama to watch, I will refer to your reviews which are so complete in every detail.
Thank you….

Hi there Carol, welcome to the blog! I’m glad you found me! 😀 I hope you’ll continue to enjoy the other reviews on the site, even though most of them aren’t as monstrously long as the Nine review! 😆

As for “This Is My Love” – I happen to have reviewed it, woot! I realize that Netflix has a tendency to use titles which differ from the dramas’ international titles, which can be confusing. In this case, This Is My Love is more commonly known as My Love Eun Dong among international drama fans. You can find my review here. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Thank you so much for correcting the name of “This Is My Love” to “My Love Eun Dong” so I could read your review. Love your in depth reviews of the kdrama series. I especially like that within your reviews you add some of the background music that I thoroughly love to listen to, seems it is the same vocalists who do these dramas. Because I watch these kdramas via Netflix, I don’t have access to the other films you review. I did watch a Taiwanese drama at first thinking it was Korean, “Someone Like You” which seemed to have very similar scenarios to the Korean dramas, I think that was why I enjoyed it. These actors from South Korea have the best hairstylists, their hair styles suit them so well. One more question, what does OTP mean?
Warm regards, Carol from California, USA

I’m glad you enjoyed the review of My Love Eun Dong, Carol! 😀 And, I’m really pleased to know that you enjoy the music in the reviews too. <3 To answer your question, OTP refers to One True Pairing. So the main couple of a drama's loveline is often referred to as the OTP. You might enjoy this glossary that I created some years ago, with lots of input from blogger friends and readers. 🙂

Unfortunately “Answer Me” isn’t listed in Netflix but I will send them a request since it was released in 1988. I never would have guessed what OTP meant & I will now refer to your glossary. One other question, when I read the subtitles on the kdramas, I have difficulty keeping their names correct, do they refer to the person w/ last name first in the audio vs in the subtitles?
Thank you for your reply.😍

Reply to  Carol Shibuya

Ah, I’m sorry to hear that Answer Me 1988 isn’t on Netflix. Just to clarify, the show wasn’t released in 1988 but in 2015/2016. Most of the story is set in 1988 though, which is why 1988 features in the title. Since you are in the US, you would be able to watch Answer Me 1988 on Dramafever and most likely on Viki as well. I hope that helps! 🙂

As for your question about the subtitles, it’s hard for me to say, since I don’t watch the shows on Netflix and therefore am not familiar with Netflix subtitling convention. If the subtitles follow the dialogue, though, then it would be last name first, before given name – if the characters are being addressed by their full name. Otherwise, they would be often addressed by their given name, with the gender-neutral suffix “-sshi.” For example, “Eun Dong-sshi,” which would be the equivalent of saying “Ms. Eun Dong.” Additionally, characters may often be addressed by their job title. So a character who is a teacher might be addressed as “songsaengnim” instead of their names – and if the subtitles simply state their names instead of the title which they were addressed with in the scene (which does happen with some subtitling convention, like with DramaFever), that can be confusing for viewers. I hope that helps to clarify! 🙂

Hello! Have you watched Gu Family Book by any chance? Just curious what your thoughts are regarding that Show. 🙂 I love reading your reviews by the way! It’s refreshing to see someone with the same taste in dramas. Though I see you have more patience for other dramas than I do. Keep it up! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts.

Hi there antitled! I’m so pleased that you’re enjoying the reviews, and how cool, that we have similar tastes in dramas! 😀 To answer your question, I’m sorry to say that I didn’t watch Gu Family Book, as the premise didn’t really grab me. 😛

Please please give While You Were Sleeping a chance. Ive always been reading your reviews and blogs in silence but rn my fingers just cant give it a hault. I am also constantly checking if you already did but it seems like you havent yet. I know you are not in joining the bandwagoon or not sure what is your reason but jebal? Cos I really want to hear from you and influence my thoughts about the drama as Id always love you to do with your blogs. I need to know if its worth the A and my judgements are logical as well.

Hi there Tyty! I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the reviews. 🙂 In terms of While You Were Sleeping, I wasn’t planning to watch it because I wasn’t too interested in the premise, and I’d also heard mostly underwhelmed reactions from viewers, and that didn’t make me more interested in checking it out. But, your comment has intrigued me some, and I plan to at least check out the first couple of episodes, to see if the show grabs me. Let’s see how that goes! 🙂

Hi there .. Please forgive me to bluntly comment here.

I just finished While You Were Sleeping. To be honest, I also lose interest from the premise. However, with my love power toward LJS and even greater boredom toward myself, I started watching the show and got hooked on it unexpectedly. Actually, I came here to check your review after finishing the show. If you haven’t watched the show yet, I would like to encourage you to start watching it. Pleaseeee =D Furthermore, as I saw you gave I Hear Your Voice an A+, you definitely don’t want to skip While you were sleeping with all your might. =P

P.S. If you happen to enjoy the story along the way, I bet you would love the finale.

Hi there, thanks for the recommendation on WYWS. 🙂 I did give it a try, based on someone else’s recommendation, but unfortunately, I found that I wasn’t feeling it, in the first 2 episodes, and didn’t have the interest to continue watching. 😛 Maybe some other time I might give it another try, but my first attempt just didn’t work out, sorry to say.

I thought the chemistry between Chae Rim and Lee Jong Hyuk was terrific, and they both excellent performances. I found some of the things that Kang Soo Ho
did in pursuing Cha Yeong Jin, a little on the creepy side eg the bus episode.
The little girl (and I can’t find out who the actress’ name was) was great too.

Reply to  jenny

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! 🙂

Reply to  kfangurl

I watched Nirvana in Fire because of your A++ rating and it didn’t disappoint. And that’s an understatement! I love love love everything about NIF. I actually regret finishing the show in just a week and I still can’t move on so am re-watching now. We have the same tastes in dramas. Reply 1988, Weightlifting, and Oh Hae Young Again are also on the top of my list. I’m going to try watching Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms! Thanks so much, chinggu. Keep writing. You’ve got great reactions and you write so well!

Reply to  nadeum

OMG, you finished NIF in a WEEK?!?? How did you ever do that, it’s such a long show! 😳😱 I can totally understand the inability to move on too, as I felt the same when I finished NIF. So many people I know have gone back to rewatch it too! I went right back to E1 when I got to the end, and even though I didn’t complete my rewatch, the first 17 eps were quite revelational to me, after understanding the whole context. So many little details started clicking into place! So yes, definitely worth a rewatch – or several! 😉

Yay that you’re going to try Peaches.. it’s a very different show than NIF, but if you’re in the mood for romance, it delivers very well. 🙂

PS: Thanks for the encouragement on the writing! 😀 I’m really happy that you’re enjoying the posts!

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

Reply to  priya

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! 🙂

Reply to  priya

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!

Kfangirl – I started watching Goblin today and I’m currently on the second episode. I find myself distracted by the huge age difference between the male and female leads. She’s supposed to be a Senior in high school (who looks a lot younger) and he’s a 30-something year old man. I don’t know if I can get through the remaining episodes even though I am a fan of Yoo In-na.

5 years ago

I have to confess that I had similar struggles with Goblin, and ended up stalling at E10. I haven’t gone back to it yet, and currently don’t feel particularly anxious to pick it up again either. One of my main issues with this show, aside from it’s slow pace, is the odd OTP pairing. Not only is the age gap uncomfortably large, I personally didn’t feel chemistry between the leads. Sadly, I don’t have any other Yoo In Na show to recommend, since you’ve already seen My Love From Another Star and Queen In-hyun’s Man. I didn’t love her other shows that I did check out. That said, lots of folks enjoyed The Greatest Love, where she plays second lead. I personally didn’t take to The Greatest Love coz I couldn’t jive with Show’s humor and I don’t personally care for man-child type male lead characters. But, lots of other folks loved that show, so you might too? 😅

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! 🙂

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. 🙂

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

Reply to  hyunju

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. 🙂

6. Healer
7. Scarlet Heart Ryeo
8. Love in the Moonlight
9. Jealousy Incarnate

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! 🙂

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!

Reply to  ahmed

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. 🙂

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.
