28 Dec

2011 brought a great varieties of dramas. Usually, I tend to stick to your generic girl loves boy story, but this year, I managed to branch out (might have been one of the best decisions of my life). Continue reading

[Thespian Review] Ji Sung – “Protect the Boss”

30 Sep

Continuing the trend of neurotic lead male characters that Hyun Bin seem to have started late last year with Secret Garden, Protect the Boss introduces us a Hyun Bin-esque character in Cha Ji Heon. Ji Heon shares the same aspects as Hyun Bin’ Kim Joo Won; he’s full of himself and suffers from some mental disorder. But that’s where their similarities rest. Ji Heon is fundamentally different from Hyun Bin and that’s because he’s painfully aware of his issues, unlike Hyun Bin.

In addition, Ji Heon is played so differently by Ji Sung.

[Series Review] Protect the Boss

29 Sep

Korean dramas are often very predictable with a happy ending almost always guaranteed for everyone. Yet somehow we’re expected to feel for these characters even though we all know what will happen in the end. Protect the Boss works that way. You know who will end up with who and what will happen at the end. Still, it manages to surprise audiences with the amount of comedy gold, heart, and unexpected joys that it manages to pack in every episode. It’s a rare treat to get such a cast of incredibly funny actors doing great work and the series writers’ give them plenty of good material to chew on too.

[Review] Protect the Boss

13 Aug

As you could probably tell from our posts here, here, and here, Clarence and I are very much on board of the Protect the Boss bus. In fact, we drive that bus. Though only 4 episodes in, the Wednesday-Thursday drama has been garnering a lot of attention for the remarkable chemistry between all four corners of the love square.

Is Psycho The New Black?

12 Aug

Gone are the days of ultra-perfect male leads. It is getting rarer and rarer to find KDramas whose main characters are even semi-normal. Not that I’m objecting or anything; I think it’s wonderful that it isn’t always the female lead who has some sort of abnormality. Continue reading

“Genius Funny”

12 Aug

I have to say my love only grows more for Protect the Boss, currently my favorite drama airing. It’s just a blast of laugh-out-loud comedy mixed with a hint of drama that doesn’t take away from the jokes and laughter (if anything, the drama improves it). All the characters have all their quirks and weirdness that just brings a smile to my face. Even actresses I don’t like seem better here (Hwang Ji Hye, whose facial tics annoyed the hell out of me in Personal Taste, works wonders for comedy here. Maybe she’s meant for comedy instead of drama).
