Goblin: the Lonely and Great God

Alright, so this drama was just as good as I was hoping it would be. I was really excited to see a modern fantasy show from Korea and this really set the record for one of the most fun and enjoyable. It was serious, but funny. It had strong story lines and in depth characters

Moonlight Drawn By the Clouds

This historical drama was a fantastic find. I already loved Park Bo Gum from Answer me 1988 and he did such a fantastic job in this show. Unlike a few of the historical dramas that I’ve dabbled with it stayed steady in the drama intensity. A couple of the dramas I’ve watched would suddenly skyrocket

You’re Beautiful

So this is a pretty popular Korean drama, because it has everyone’s favorite Jang Guen Suk in it. It’s also the always classic girl-disguised-as-a-boy story with the added benefit of K-Pop style music. In this drama at least there’s not as much singing as you’d imagine, but the soundtrack is very good. It’s also a
