It– not Korean dramas, just my must-watch lists, all started in 2013, but 2014 is ALREADY looking like another
good great year for Korean dramas! And, be sure to check out the long list of Korean dramas that I’ve watched and loved in the past HERE.
1. My Love From Another Star
In this drama starring Jeon Ji Hyun, Kim Soo Hyun, Park Hae Jin, and Yoo Inna, “an alien from another planet lands in Korea, and falls in love with a top Hallyu star.”
2. Secret Love Affair
This drama about an older married woman who falls in love with a much younger boy has me hooked, and I’ve been sharing my favorite scenes and statements– a kind of recap, HERE.
3. A Witch’s Romance
This drama about another older woman who falls for a much younger guy is TONS of fun so far– and also so different from Secret Love Affair even though they are both noona romances! Be sure to check out their steamy kisses HERE!
4. Yoo Na’s Street
I Love both of these leads and the entire cast– along with the story about a bumbling detective and his sexy pick-pocketing neighbor! This drama replaces Secret Love Affair, and you can watch the teaser here:
More importantly, I’ll watch this Korean drama FOR SURE– after it’s been subbed… :(
Now, as you’ve seen I’ve decided not to watch any of the divorce dramas (Emergency Couple and Sly and Single Again), medical dramas (New Leaf, Doctor Stranger, and Angel Eyes), or cop dramas (Gap Dong and You’re All Surrounded) that aired this year.
If you’ve seen my long list of watched Korean dramas, you’ll see that I’ve already been there and done that, and it’s not like any of my favorite Korean actors or actresses are in any of them, either, which is a BIG reason why I passed on Joseon Gunman, Trot Lovers, and High School King of Savvy as well. It’s Okay, It’s Love just seems crazy, by the way for trying to tackle a serious issue– women’s rights when it comes to their sexuality, in a makjang way!
Well, maybe the first two dramas that made the list are so perfect that everything that comes after them just… not good enough, like a bottle of coke I opened for the first time and drank last night but don’t want to drink again even though it’s still in the fridge– lost ALL the fizz. But, here are
two three FOUR dramas I am finally excited about, and they’ve already made my must-watch list, but let’s see if they stay there!
5. The Three Musketeers
Starring my love Jung Yong Hwa in what will surely be an action and adventure sageuk, The Three Musketeers promises something different this year. Also, the team behind my favorite fusion sageuk Queen In Hyun’s man is behind this KDrama! Much to anticipate along with what I’m sure will be a stellar performance by YDG.
6. My Secret Hotel
Starring the lovely Yoo In Na and Kim Nam Goong, My Secret Hotel should be a rom-com that I’ll actually be able to watch! Can’t wait to see her in another lead role.
Lee Dong Wook is my absolute favorite Korean actor, and I’m excited to see him take on a role as a tortured superhero! Now, I think that Lee Dong Wook is the only actor who can pull of the whole knives coming out of my body thing, but let’s be real: This drama is going to be either REALLY good or really Really REALLY bad. Anyway, here’s some eye candy (and the trailer).
8. Bad Boys
Yay, Park Hae Jin, one of my favorite actors and a Busan boy to boot, is finally back!
Okay, okay… I know this is his third drama this year, but Doctor “Cuckoo” was not on MY watch list. Anyway, I’m excited to see him and a bunch of other great– really great, actors and actresses in this crime action thriller with lots of mystery, too. Here’s the trailer!
Just when I was about to give up on KDramas, I’ve been pulled back in!
Finally, you can watch a bunch of new and old dramas on my favorite site where I watch high quality videos (1080p!) with great subtitles that leave nothing out: Kdrama.com!
