Daily Drama Review: Noble Lady (2014)

Noble Lady (2014)

I haven’t reviewed a daily drama in a very long time. Why? Because it’s hard to write a full review about something that you didn’t care for or didn’t finish. So, it’s with joy that I finally found a drama that not only did I like, I liked the ending, the characters, the development and for once the irritating mother in laws didn’t illicit too many curse words!

Ha! You really thought my love for the daily dramas had waned? Au contraire! As I had said before, my life for 2016 was the pits! I hardly had the time or patience to write but I did make time for my dailies and other dramas to take me away from reality. It worked sometimes and sometimes not.

Year in Review – My Best Dramas for 2016

Best 2016 Dramas I Watched!
Best 2016 Dramas I Watched!

I always enjoy doing these end of the year posts. Why? My list never looks the same as everyone else. As I watch so many different genres and dramas from all the Asian countries, my list never looks the same. Another thing I notice is that I rarely like the popular ones. I think at my age, I get bored very easily with some of the drama tropes and romances. It’s a rarity that they even make it to my list! This year, for the first time ever, I watched more than double the number of Japanese dramas than Korean, I hardly watched any Thai lakorns and the Chinese dramas this year (that I’ve watched), didn’t bubble to the top!

1% of Anything (2016) – Episode 1

Episode 1
Episode 1

So, your first question should be “Why are we recapping this drama?” It’s simple! Our fearless leader, Snoopy’s Twinkie and I are a HUGE, I mean HUGE fans of the original drama, 2003 1% of Anything which starred Kang Dong Won as Lee Jae In and Kim Jung Hwa as Kim Da Hyun. As a matter of record, it was Snoopy’s marathon suggestion that lead me to the original. Okay, first of all, a lot of people didn’t care for it. Why? I have no idea. Maybe because there was no romance/ push-pull that I so hate. Maybe because it is an older drama. Maybe because it was one of Kang Dong Won’s first dramas and it did take his acting a bit to kick start. However, what I liked about it was the fact it was about the evolution of a romance between two people. Nothing else. Continue reading “1% of Anything (2016) – Episode 1”

Tomorrow Victory (2015) at the Half – So Far Still Good!

Tomorrow Victory (2015)

One of the great things about the availability of daily dramas beginning in 2015 is that so many dramas are getting subbed more than ever. First, we had KBSWorld and several dailies being made available on YouTube. Last year, we had the new website called OnDemandKorea which is sponsored by MBCAmerica coming online. Even DramaFever has finally returned to make daily dramas available on their website. As a result of this, the number of daily dramas with English subtitles has grown at such a rate that me and my daily drama buddy, Nelly, is finding is harder to watch the usual drama fare! Incredible! But who’s complaining? Read on… Continue reading “Tomorrow Victory (2015) at the Half – So Far Still Good!”

Something happened for 2015; no, actually it started earlier when KBSWorld started making more and more dramas available via their YouTube Channel. The powers that be at the networks (at least one) realized just how many non-Koreans were interested in their daily dramas! Read On… Continue reading “Daily Drama Heaven? Or Hell? Dilemma for 2016”
