The Drama Year So Far

7 Aug

Ah, this is my second year watching dramas (to think I only started last year!) and so far I’ve almost completed or completed thirteen dramas and less than halfway on at least two or three dramas. My goal this year is to watch at least 25 dramas this year and provide meaningful discussion about them. Thankfully, Dramabeans have been a huge help in separating the things I ought to watch and the things I should avoid. Hence, I’m not watching Dr. Jin or Operation Proposal because they’re both deemed terrible.

Since there are only so much hours in a day and only so much free time in a while, I obviously won’t and can’t watch all of the dramas that aired. My attention span for Korean dramas are much much shorter than my attention span for American shows since they’re two different things. Hence, I don’t watch shows that have more than (+ or -) 20 episodes. In other words, I’m only here to watch short-term dramas.

What a fantastic introduction to a show that has potential to be one of the greatest I’ve seen so far. Not only does it contain a great premise but on a shot-to-shot basis, this is one tightly directed, intelligently crafted, and beautifully filmed show. Not all aspects of the show are impressive but nevertheless, “Padam Padam” is worthy of the intense hype that preceded its debut.

Kim Bum Transforms For “Padam Padam”

3 Nov

Now, I’ve always been a huge fan of Kim Bum. He was cute in “Boys Over Flowers”, amazing in “Woman Who Still Wants To Marry”, and pretty hilarious in “Unstoppable High Kick”. He has an adorable baby face, which I always thought was cute, but, you know, not really my thing.
