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!

Drama Marathon – Bewitched in Tokyo (2004)


Inane, silly, fun? Just think about all the goofy adjectives that comes to mind and it pretty much describes this drama. I would definitely classify this as an ‘easy watch’. No drama tropes, no love triangle, and truly a remake of one of my favorite shows from the distant past, Bewitched with the late Elizabeth Montgomery.

Forest of Secrets: Teaser’s Pros and Cons

You know, I have PURE love for both Jo Seung Woo and Bae Doo Na! It’s like an early Birthday and Christmas gift tied together to have these two in a drama together! I’m so looking forward to it and really hope it is picked up by someone! Hell! I’ll just watch it raw!!!

Dramas With A Side of Kimchi

Well, this drama is starting off with a huge, beautifully shot, intense teaser that has me itching to solve whatever mystery  Jo Seung Woo & Bae Doo Na are investigating.  It is almost time to start another great weekend TvN drama and Forest of Secrets looks like it will be full of intrigue and gritty politicking.  Just what I like in my suspense dramas.
