Gil Oh Sol(Kim Yoo Jung) also has a secret crush on her college senior(sunbae) Do Jin(Kwak Shi Yang), this is also how she gets into trouble while working part-time picking up trash in the city. She then ends up bumping into Do Jin(Kwak Shi Yang) and to hide the fact that it’s her she ends up putting on a random horse mask and runs away from him at full speed downtown.

When that happens she crashes into the car of Jang Sun Gyeol(Yoon Gyun Sang), and all the garbage ends up on his car, he then ends up removing Gil Oh Sol(Kim Yoo Jung) hose mask revealing to everyone and Do Jin(Kwak Shi Yang) that it is her under the horse mask.

Because of this incident, she ends up becoming a massive hit on youtube for all the wrong reasons, Gil Oh Sol(Kim Yoo Jung) also grows closer to Do Jin(Kwak Shi Yang),. The idea he has is to use her to film a commercial because she has become somewhat famous from an incident where she is eating a restaurant and gets shot not knowing.  After finding out about Do Jin(Kwak Shi Yang) using her she ends up leaving and crying, but she also bumps into Gil Oh Sol(Kim Yoo Jung) and returns the robot vacuum cleaner to him.

What she does not know is that the gift she was supposed to give Do Jin(Kwak Shi Yang) is also in the bag with the robot vacuum cleaner in it. Will  Jang Sun Gyeol(Yoon Gyun Sang) misunderstand her after giving him the underpants?

The Beauty Inside

The beauty inside you is a romantic comedy with a mix of melodrama it also had a beautiful story and meaning behind it all. I must admit I did cry a few time during this show, but I was even laughing and smiling during it just as much.

The main storyline between Han Se Gye(Seo Hyun Jin) and Seo Do Jae(Lee Min Ki) was so sweet and funny. You also had your cute and funny side storyline with Ryu Eun Ho(Ahn Jae Hyun) and Kang Sa Ra(Lee Da Hee) which I loved throughout the drama

I would defiantly recommend watching this.

Overall:            9.5

Story:                 9.0

Music:                10

Rewatch:          6.0

The Smile Has Left Your Eyes

The Smile Has Left Your Eyes has this dark theme to it yet you get a beautiful story between the two main characters that have this mysteries bond between each other.  This drama had its ups and downs for sure, but it kept me interested all the way until the end.

As always Seo In Guk and Jung So Min did a fantastic job as main leads.

I would recommend this for people who like an intense storyline with a beautiful love story mixed in with it.

Overall:            9.0

Story:                 8.5

Terius Behind Me

Terius Behind Me had some of the best comedy in it, but it also had its heartwarming moments between  Terius(So Ji Sub) and the kids of Go Ae Rin(Jung In Sun) mixed in with a little bit of romance too.  I would also like to say there where so many good side characters in this show, trust me you will laugh a lot during this drama thanks to these actors as supporting roles  Kim Yeo Jin,  Jung Shi Ah and let’s not forget the master of Korean comedy roles, Kang Ki Young.

This one is not hard to recommend because I think anyone would enjoy this drama to some degree!

I’m a Mother, Too

I’m a Mother, Too is an okay daily drama that touches on a few topics about what it means to be a Mother, and our main lead Yoon Ji Young(Lee In Hye) did a fantastic job of portraying this throughout the show.  This drama had its good points and also its bad ones for sure, this drama had a slow build ut, but watching the ending of this show made it all worth it in my opinion.

I  also think the main cast did an okay job there where some things I dd not like for sure, but that’s just how typical daily dramas work, it has its highs but also its down periods.

I would recommend this as a filler drama you could watch in between other shows you are watching!

Overall:            7.0

Story:                6.5

Acting/Cast:   7.5

Music:                6.5

The Ghost Detective

The Ghost Detective was one of the better detective/mystery dramas that I have watched, our two main lead Lee Da Il(Choi Daniel) and Jung Yeo Wool(Park Eun Bin) both worked together to solve mysteries together.  I would also like to high light what a fantastic job Seon Woo Hye(Lee Ji Ah ) as the villain in this drama.

This drama has a little of everything in it a thriller, horror, mystery, supernatural and even a little bit of romance in it.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes dramas that are intense and keeps you on your toes until the very end.

Also hoping they can make a season 2 would be cool to see  Lee Da Il(Choi Daniel) and Jung Yeo Wool(Park Eun Bin) working to solve more mysteries!

Overall:            8.5

Story:                 8.0

Acting/Cast:   9.0

Rewatch:         5.5

Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek has to be the most dramatic drama I have watched so far this year. The storyline was nothing too special, but it had its good points for sure, but what made this drama great was Min Chae Rin(Lee Yoo Ri) she did a fantastic job of playing a badass female with a mix of craziness, other Cast did a solid job as well.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a drama with an intense storyline plus some fantastic acting from Lee Yoo Ri

Overall:            8.0

Story:                 7.0

Acting/Cast:   9.5

Music:                7.5

Rewatch:        4.5

Where Stars Land

Where Stars Land was one of the dramas that I was hoping would live up to the expectations I had for it, what I did like about show were the main leads Han Yeo Reum(Chae Soo Bin) and Lee Soo Yeon(Lee Je Hoon) storyline. The only problem is that they left so many things out about the storyline.

Now I am hoping they do a second season too clear up a few plot holes left out, even so, I would recommend you watch this, it still had its feel-good moments between Han Yeo Reum(Chae Soo Bin) and Lee Soo Yeon(Lee Je Hoon).

Overall:            8.0

Story:                 7.0

Acting/Cast:   9.5

Music:                10

Rewatch:         1.5

The Beauty Inside (2018) My personal opinions and review “containing spoilers.”

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.48″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.17.6″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat”]

The Beauty Inside (2018)

Story/Plot

The story starts with us getting to know our main heroine Han Se Gye played by Seo Hyun Jin she is one of the top actresses in Korea.  She is also known for being in the limelight of scandals and always making trouble and behaving mysteriously. But what everyone does not know is that there is a big secret she is hiding which is the reason for her acting like this, and the reason is that she has a condition that makes her change into a new body one week each month.

Now onto our main male lead Seo Do Jae played by Lee Min Ki he works as an executive at a well-known airline in Korea, and he appears to be a perfect man in the eyes of others plus he gives off a cold vibe as well. What others don’t know is that he is also hiding a big secret from others, and that is that he can’t remember or see peoples faces including his own, he makes up for this by looking at peoples personalities or habits and other details of he the human body.

The season for doing this is to hide and cover up his condition from others.  Our heroine and the male lead start of hostile and arrogant with each other but slowly start to learn to love and get to know each other better. 

How I felt about the drama

The first few episodes of this kdrama have this ordinary romcom feeling to it, between a cold and weird chaebol of an airline company and our typical snazzy arrogant female lead who is a top actress.  But after a few more episodes the plot picked up fast, and we got to know the two characters more.

The story between the main couple was beautiful a sad one; the female lead had her struggles because of her condition where she changes into a different body one week each month.  And Seo Do Jae (Lee Min Ki) who has to hide his condition that makes it so he can remember or see peoples faces, this made for a beautiful love story between two people who look to each other for comfort and love.

This drama is also has a hidden meaning behind it all, and Han Se Gye(Seo Hyun Jin)and Seo Do Jae (Lee Min Ki) helps us understand and learn about this, and that is to love people not just for their outer beauty but to instead love the inner beauty of a person.  I had a rollercoaster of emotions from start to the end of this drama; this drama will make you cry but also smile and laugh all at ones.

But at the end hopefully, you will sit with the feeling that this drama had a beautiful and hidden message behind it! (to not just look at a person’s outer beauty but instead focus on a person’s inner beauty) you could also say The Beauty Inside.

My favorite Side story

There were also some great side stories/plot, the one I liked best was the story between our second leads love story about the second male lead Ryu Eun Ho played by Ahe Jea Hyun and second female lead Kang Sa Ra played by Lee Da Hee.

The story tells us about Ryu Eun Ho who is friends with Han Se Gye and Yoo Woo Mi(Moon Ji In) he looks cute and knows about this and uses this when he is work hard at part-time jobs; there is only one thing tho he wants to become a priest. And our second female lead Kang Sa Rais, the stepsister of Seo Do Jae she always works hard so that she can beat her stepbrother at work, and Kang Sa Ra is willing to do anything to get what she wants.

They meet each other while Ryu Eun Ho is working for Han Se Gye she tells him to get close to Kangra Ra so that she can know what evil schemes Seo Do Jae stepsister is planning on doing next. Later Ryu Eun Ho ends up working as a cleaner at Kang Sa Ra house.  They slowly start to understand and love each other; this complicates things for Ryu Eun Ho because he was supposed to become a priest.

What I liked about this side story was that it was a cute and funny romance story that slowly built up as show vent on, it did give this drama an extra flower on top of the main storyline that worked well together.

How actors did

The main heroine of the story Seo Hyun Jin who played Han Se Gye she did an outstanding job portraying her character in this drama; this is no surprise to me because when looking back at some of her other projects as the main lead.

To name a few Let’s Eat 2, Another Miss Oh, RomanticDoctor, Teacher Kim and Temperature of Love as I can’t forget here roles in Another Miss Oh and Temperature of Love she did an outstanding job in those roles!

Male lead LeeMin Ki who played Seo Do Jae he also did a great job of portraying his character by giving of this cold yet warm feeling about his role.  Then again this is also not that surprising because he has lots of experience playing many different kinds of drams including one of my favorites from 2017 Because This is My First Life where he also played a similar role to this one!

Second female lead played by Lee DaHee she played Kang Sa Ra I liked her character in this.  Here side storyline was my favorite in this show!

Second male lead played by Ahn Jae Hyun he played Ryu Eun Ho he also has a cute and funny side story to follow throughout the drama!

Moon Ji In who played Moon Ji In as Yoo Woo Mi she did an excellent job of being the best friend who always is there for you in hard and good times!

Honorable mentions

Kim Hee Jung, she played as Han Sook Hee also Han Se Gye’s mother I loved her role in this drama

Moon Woo Jin who played a mine role in the episode (Ep.8-9) as Han Se Gye body switch

Kingman was the dog of Han Se Gye. I liked how cute and funny they made him in this drama!

Overall:           9.5

Story:                9.0
