Mr. Sunshine OST (Ongoing)

It is a much anticipated Korean drama for this year. As we all know, the writer (Kim Eun Sook) of this drama is very well known as a hit maker. All of her drama will have a high rating worldwide. Let me repeat, worldwide.

Just named it, Secret Garden, The Heirs, Descendant of the sun, and the latest one is Goblin. All of them have different plot, different setting, different genre etc. But all of them was high rating dramas and incredulously famous in Korea also abroad.

So, when the news about Mr. Sunshine came out, everybody is curious and really anticipating of the drama. Not to mention, the director also known for his great directing.

It was still in episode 2, but I really like it. Somehow, it reminds me of Chicago Typewriter which I love it to the bone. Same like Chicago Typewriter, the idea of a heroine with strong character is always great to watch. I have soft spot for this kind of dramas.

As expected, as a fully pre-produced drama, the cinematography and editing is a top notch. It was like watching some kind of movie instead of an episode of drama. The acting of the lead male is no doubt, off course amazing as always.

The only thing that bothers me is the story. I hardly understand the story since it related to Korean history. I need to watch it more than once to fully understand the story line. Not recommended for dram a lovers who only like a light and simple drama.

And what I like the most from most of her dramas is their original soundtrack (OST). Most of them are amazing song and instrumental music that really fit for the drama, for each and every scene.

I am still in love with the other 3 drama OST that I mention above. I definitely cannot wait to hear the 4th one from this new ‘masterpiece’ of her.

And, then there it is, a first OST from Park Hyo Shin’s voice which is a really great, powerful, and beautiful song. Oh my, I love his voice ever since he sings Snowflower as OST for winter sonata.

Now, let’s start with the OST list:

1. Park Hyo Shin – The Day

Chicago Typewriter OST and BGM

After survived from a challenging week, I reward myself by watching ongoing kdrama. Currently obsessed with Chicago Typewriter which is very underrated, IMHO. This drama is superb. It definitely will be one of the best drama in my list. So, please bare with me. I’m going to rant a lot over this drama.
At first, I was curious about Im Soo Jung (@soojunglim_) who comeback to dramaland after 13 years off. She is so great in I’m Sorry I Love You also …Ing and many other movies. Yoo Ah In (@hongsick) also draws my attention since he always play a challenging character, meaningful if I may say. Just look at his previous work such as Sungkyungkwan ScandalFashion King, Jang Ok Jung. There is also Go Kyung Pyo (@kopular) which left good impression on me after Flower Boy Next Door and Reply 1988.

After I watch the first few episodes. I realized it is such a great drama, an unpredictable one.

The storyline. It is mostly about life of a writer but they deliver it in a very interesting way. The idea of using past (Korea in 1930) and present time as setting for their story is something that I rarely seen in kdrama world. Since ‘writer’ is the big theme of the drama, they spoiled me with many book reference, writer reference, beautiful book cafe, inspiring book quotes, and last but not least, amazing privat library of writers. Me, as a bookworm myself, could not ask for more. Books is everywhere.

The cast. I was amazed on how @hongsick perfectly portrayed the eccentric brassy filthy rich writer #hansejoo in the present time and a mysterious poised #seohwiyoung in the past as if they were two character portrayed by 2 different actor. Not to mention the deep, genuine, and cutest bromance with his literally ‘ghost’writer @kopular . The love line with @soojunglim_ which is more than just ‘cheesy’ romance. Add with an eccentric, funny, and random editor played by the #goblin secretary. All I can say, they are the best cast for this drama. .

The OST. Oh my, TVN always provides great OSTs, including this one. All OST and background music are perfectly connect to the story. So far, my favorites is Satellite by SaltNPaper also one from SG.Wannabe.

Last, I love how they include mystery, writer issues, publishing issues, politic issues, world problem, pop culture, fashion, and art in this drama without too dramatize or exaggerate.

So here are some of the OST:

1. SALTNPAPER – Satellite

2. CeeLo – Better Late Than Never [episode 1, during Han Se Joo book fansign in Chicago)

3. Celine Dion – Power of love [episode 1, the scene when the dog run to Jeon Seol instead of Se Joo]

Descendants of the Sun OST List

Descendants-of-the-Sun

Another kdramas in my waiting list for 2016 is finally airing, Descendants of the Sun. Really curious of how it will be since the writer is the great Kim Eun Sook. Not to mention the lead cast is our Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.

Both of them are my favorites. Love Song Hye Kyo since Autumn Tales era till now. While Song Joong Ki, well, first time I saw him was in Triple. And this is his new drama after serving his nation in Military. So, who is not gonna be excited to watch him again after 2 years, right.

One more thing, this drama shooting is already ended aka pre-produced, which is I believe, just like Cheese in The Trap, the cinematography and the editing or the scene showing will be just perfect since they have time to make it the best they can. Furthermore, from what I saw, we will be spoiled by many topless soldier scene, Oh dear…

After watching their first 2 episodes, I know I have been fallen in love. And fortunately, it aired during the time when I felt down because of the lack of JungSeol moment in Cheese In The Trap. Somehow, it lifted my kdramas spirit up.

But hey, it just been 2 episode, don’t know about the rest. But I like what I’ve seen so far. The drama kinda reminds me of “Tour of Duty” (a drama aired back in the eighties. beside about war, friendship, military, it also about love between a Liutenant and a doctor. What a memories).

First Recommended Kdrama in 2016: Cheese in The Trap

Definitely in love with this drama called Cheese In The Trap. My newest addiction in 2016. Wondering a lot, giggling nonstop, and enjoying a lot the whole time watching. Even though it just only 4 episodes and still ongoing until the 16th episode, but it really hooked me. Fall in love with Hong Seol while swooning over Yoo Jung and In Ho.

CITT (4)Interesting story.

Well, what can you expect, this drama is based on Line webtoon, so I’m pretty sure that it will be quite funny, hilarious, cute, heartwarming and also a lit bit mysterious.

Based on the original webtoon with the same title by “Soon Ggi” which was published via “Naver Online” from 2010-July-07.

CITT (1)Hong Seol (Kim Go Eun) isn’t the smartest or most privileged university student, but she is without a doubt hardworking and earnest. In contrast, Hong Seol’s senior, Yoo Jeong (Park Hae Jin), is a high achiever with the good looks, athleticism and grades to prove it — but he harbors a dark side. Even stranger, an unlikely alliance is forged between these two classmates from opposite sides of the track * from dramafever.com *

Perfect cast.

There is no doubt that the director and producer did their best to cast the actors and actresses. They were all like some kind of people who came out from the comic book. They are perfectly suit for the character, IMHO.

CITT (3)Especially for Hong Seol character. I just love how Kim Go Eun perfectly portrayed her. Her natural beauty, her quirkiness, her nervousness, her gesture, her voice, her cute monolog, her outfit, her smile, is just perfect for the role * I am officialy her fan since then. *

Beautiful Cinematography.

Since the drama has been filmed before it airs, I think the production staff put their maximal efforts to do the editing, to make the drama looks so beautiful in its own way.

I love how they show the scene of Yoo Jung and Seoul in the campus near the stairs when they stared to each other, or when Yoo Jung silently following Seoul from behind after she had a hard time during presentation. It just beautiful.

Refreshing and addicting OST.

Somehow, I love almost all music or Original Soundtrack from dramas airs on TVN. Somehow, they always offered different kinds of music. At first, I hardly know the singer since it pretty much not a worldwide idol out there. But that what make it so refreshing. It just 4 episode, and I already downloaded all the OST * hopefully can buy the CD soon. * Repeatedly listen to it just because the beat, the tune, the song are all perfect fit for the drama.

That College Campus Look.

Actually, watch this drama make me sob just a little. Thinking back on how I look during my college campus day. Oh my dear, I am not even look  a tiny bit like them all * can I turn back the time puhleeees *

CITT 6How can’t I be swoon over of Yoo Jung sophisticated style, somehow look simple, classic, and casual. In love with Hong Seol comfortable and warm outfit. Last but not least, sporty Eun taek and girly Bo Ra style will surely make your college day look brighter * at least brighter than I do before *

So, if you haven’t watch this drama, I suggest you start now. You can watch it here or here.

And when watching and reading webtoon is not enough, why don’t you join Cheese In The Trap family in soompi, I bet you’ll get fast update and many interesting fact about this Cheese In The trap drama, not to mention, you’ll find new friends who is as crazy as you are. At least it help you lessen the suffering of waiting next episode to come.

An Ongoing List of Korean Drama

I am a drama addict. Yes I am. Any kind of drama. Just named it. One of those dramas is Korean drama worldwide known as kdrama. Since I was a teenager, I spent some of my spare time to watch kdrama marathonly * if you know what I mean with marathon *

background kdrama
