10 Korean Drama of 2019 Based on Webtoon or Webcomics

Nowadays, we are spoiled by korean dramas with storyline based on webtoon.

It was like a treat for both fans, webtoon and kdramas. The anticipation on how the actor and actress portrayed the webtoon character could bring the drama into success or failed.

As an avid reader of comics, manga, and webtoon, I pretty much enjoyed all kdramas based on them.

Especially those with funny, comical, fantasy, easy cheesy, and lovey dovey on. Although I don’t mind with the serious or dark one, at all.

So, here are some korean drama aka kdrama air in 2019, which I enjoyed wating them

1. Extraordinary you

Based on the webcomic series July Found by Chance” by Moo Ryoo via comic.daum.com.

It is a very entertaining drama with lots of hillarious Dan Oh moment. All the cast are such eye candies and quite match with the webtoon character.

Watching this drama after you read the webtoon is like watching the webtoon came to life, so unreal.

2. Tale of nokdu

Based on webcomic “Nokdujeon” by Hye Jin Yang via comic.naver.com.

It is a funny and non stereotype kind of drama. Setting in historical era where a man pretend to be a woman instead.

Loving this drama for Kim So Hyun with her new character. I just love her acting here.

3. Pegasus market

Based on the webtoon “Pegasus Market” by Kim Kyu Sam via https://series.naver.com/

Just like its title, the story revolve around a market with all of its unique employee. If you are looking for drama with eye candies cast then it might not your cup of tea.

4. Stranger from hell

Based on webcomic of “Stranger from hell” same name by Kim Yong Ki via webtoon.naver.net

At first, I was excited to see the cast and the promising story since I don’t see hint of love line here. Furthermore, I haven’t read the webtoon, yet.

But then, it was as scary as hell, just like its title. Somehow, I couldn’t forget Lee Dong Wook psychopath scary smiley face afterward.

5. Love alarm
Based on the webtoonLove Alarm” by Chun Gye Young via webtoon.daum.net.

It was the most hype drama since netflix is involved. The webtoon itself is aso a huge hit. So, no wonder if this drama widely known and unbelievable popular as in viewers calls for season 2.

6. Save me season 2
Based on the Korean manhwa/webtoon “Out of the World” by Jo Geum San via “comic.daum.com“. It’s the second season of Save Me (Season 1).

It was kind of dark story. I Haven’t read the webtoon but I really like the drama. Especially Save Me season 1.

7. Item
Based on the webtoon “Item” by Min Hyung via “kakao.com“.

Truthfully, I’ve been keeping this drama in my watch list. So, I still don’t have any opinion about this drama. But, I heldmy hope high.

8. Kingdom
Based on webcomic series “Land of the Gods”, which was authored Writer Kim Eun Hee and drawn by Yang Kyung Il.

Been fostering myself to be brave and watch this drama. Maybe, next time.

9. Neighborhood lawyer jo

Based on the webtoon “Dongnebyunhosa Jodeulho” by Hatchling via “comic.naver.com/webtoon“.

I enjoyed this drama as I watched it. Not very impress, but since I like lawyer kind of theme, so this one is fine for me.

10. Her Private Life

Based on webcomics Nuna Paen Datkom” by Kim Sung Yeon.

I enjoyed this drama a lot. Swoon over the couple all through the episodes. Laugh my heart out for many scenes showed in the drama.

Love the idea of successful woman been fangirling over an idol. She was channeling maany woman out there, including me.

Goodbye Mr. Black OST

After Descendants of The Sun (DOTS) ended, I practically move on to other dramas.

Fortunately, there is this one drama I watch along with the DOTS. Which none other than Goodbye Mr. Black.

Eventhough the drama is quite off radar or I may say underrated, but somehow I was curious enough to make me continue watching it. I watched it silently because everyone eyes, heart, and soul was in DOTS.

Furthermore, this drama is a comeback drama for Moon Chae Won, one of actress that I fond of after watched The Princess’s man, Good Doctor, and Innocent Man.

Ah, it also have Song Jae Rim in it and Im Se Mi, so yeah, I like them too.


This drama is based on the original Manhwa/Webtoon called Goodbye Mr. Black.” by Hwang Mi Na which was first published in 1983. The comic is motivated by French author Alexandre Dumas’s novel “The Count of Monte Cristo“.

After saw their first few episodes, I kinda liked it although not as far as crazy about it or ‘baper’ in Indonesian Language.

It got me hooked, at least until now. And the OST, off course I like the OST. That is why I decided to write this post. Especially the OST Part 4 which I kept replayed in my playlist along with CITT OST and DOTS OST.

So, here are some of the OST that captured my heart.

1. Baek Ji Young – Goodbye [OST Part 1]

2. Baek Ji Young – Goodbye [OST Part 1] – instrumental

3. Bae Su Jung – Walking In Place [OST Part 3]

4. Bae Su Jung – Walking In Place [OST Part 3] – instrumental

5. Song Yu Bin – Perhaps This Is… [OST Part 3]

6. Song Yu Bin – Perhaps This Is… [OST Part 3] – instrumental

7. 2BIC – Bear [OST Part 4]

8. 2BIC – Bear [OST Part 4] – instrumental

Descendants of the Sun OST


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.

Furthermore, 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 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.

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

The drama kinda reminds me of “Tour of Duty” (a drama aired back in the eighties. It’s about war, friendship, military, also love line between a Liutenant and a doctor. What a memories).

25 Film Bagi Para Penikmat Fashion

Event Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) 2016 sudah di depan mata. Event tersebut akan berlangsung di Senayan City dari tanggal 24 Oktober – 30 Oktober 2015. Jadi, dalam rangka menyambut JFW 2016, pas banget rasanya kalau saya posting sesuatu bertema fashion. Apalagi kalau bukan mengenai film * secara saya penikmat segala macam tontonan, termasuk film. *

Sepanjang saya menonton sebuah film, salah satu aspek yang saya perhatikan adalah wardrobenya alias pakaian, aksesoris, attitude, dan teman-temannya yang sering kali disebut sebagai fashion. Terlebih lagi jika disepanjang film tersebut kita dimanjakan dengan berbagai macam kostum yang indah dan unik. Makanya, bukan merupakan hal yang aneh lagi jika wardrobe para aktor dan aktris sebuah film terkadang menjadi ikon atau trendsetter fashion.

So, these are 25 movies worth to watch for their fashion * according to me, off course. do please remember, I am not one of those fashion expert out there. *  Jadi dari sekian banyak judul film, berikut ini 25 film yang menurut saya perlu di tonton buat penyuka fashion seperti saya.

1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Siapa yang tidak mengenal sosok Audrey Hepburn, seorang aktris yang terkenal tidak hanya dari aktingnya tapi juga hatinya. Sosok Audrey Hepburn di fim ini, dengan semua pakaian yang ia kenakan menjadi salah satu tren di dunia fashion. Di film inilah, “little black dress” pertama kali mendunia dan gaungnya terdengar hingga saat ini.

2. Heather (1988)

Kalau ingin tahu bagaimana tren fashion remaja SMU tahun 80-an, film ini merupakan pilihan. And oh, I am a big fan of Winona Ryder, well, not that it is important to know.

heather 5 heather1 heather3 heather4 heathers2

3. An Education (2009)

Sebelum orang mengenal sosok Carey Mulligan booming melalui film The Great Gatsby. Saya telah lebih dulu mengenalnya melalui film ini. She is transform from highscool student into such a classy lady. I love all her dress, her coat, her glove, her accessories in this movie.

4. Clueless (1995)

Ah. I grew up with this movie. I love Alicia Silverstone during my teenage. Makanya pas banget ketika film ini tayang, saya langsung jatuh cinta sama semua pakaian yang ia kenakan. Film clueless ini juga ada versi dramanya. Jadi tidak heran jika film ini menjadi salah satu tren fashion di era 90an, terutama untuk anak remaja kala itu. I mean, who doesn’t want to be Cher?

clueless1 clueless3 clueless4 clueless5

5. Devils Wears Prada (2006)

Dari judulnya saja ada kata Prada, sudah jelas film ini ‘berbau’ fashion. Bagaimana tidak, film ini bercerita tentang kehidupan seorang asisten editor sebuah majalah fashion terkenal di dunia. Anne Hathaway dan Meryl Streep sense of fashion in this movie really blow my mind off.

Belum lagi fakta bahwa tokoh Andrea yang dimainkan Anne, pada awalnya adalah wanita ‘biasa.’ * Well, we even could call her “dork” thinking that she is working in fashion world * Film ini membuat para wanita percaya bahwa kita bisa menjadi seperti Andrea if we get the right job, the right clothes, and the right advice * hehe, that is solely my subjektif thinking. *

6. The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Here is my bias Matt Damon. Menonton film ini karena Damon in it. But, again, fall in with love all the wardrobe in it.

the-talented-mr.-ripley4 the-talented-mr.-ripley2 the-talented-mr.-ripley2 the-talented-mr.-ripley1

7. Annie Hall (1977)

This is an iconic movie. I am deeply fallen for Annie’s (Diane Keaton) quirkiness. Film ini berhasil memperlihatkan fashion style of a smart, chic, and yet quirky eccentric women. This movie shown how men’s clothing and baggy looks perfect in women too.

8. Blow Up (1966)

Mengingat film ini mengenai kehiduan di sekitar fotografer fashion, maka tidak heran jika pastinya, kita disuguhi dengan banyak sekali hal-hal yang berhubungan dengan fashion.

blow up1 blow up2 blow up3

9. Breathless (1960)

Oooh, I love this movie. Suka banget sama film ini karena aktrisnya berambut pendek * lebih dikenal dengan nama pixie-cut style. I even tried this kind of hairstyle on me .* She looks so chic. Ditambah lagi dengan pakaian yang dikenakannya, yang kebanyakan berpola garis-garis alias stripe * which is also one of my favorite patterns. *

10. Funny Face (1957)

Film di mana kita dimanjakan oleh gaun-gaun nan indah yang dikenakan oleh Audrey.

11. Klute (1977)

All I can remember from this movie is Jane Fonda’s knee-high boots * and I really want one back then. *

12. Mary Antoinette (2006)

Secara pribadi, saya selalu suka dengan segala seuatu yang berhubungan dengan Mary Antoinette. Bisa dibilang, kisah sejarah yang membawa nama Mary hingga saat ini  meninggalkan bekas yang mendalam dalam ingatan saya. I love her story life.

Ketika film ini akan tayang, jelas saya sudah membayangkan indahnya gaun-gaun yang akan bermunculan. Dan ketika tayang, benar saja, saya dimanjakan dengan gaun-gaun khas ratu Prancis die ra itu, dengan berbagai warna pastel yang membuat saya berdecak kagum. Not to mention, Kirsten Dunst in it * love all her work since Jumanji till now. *

16. La Dolce Vita

17. Casino

Di film ini, saya mengenal bahan sequin * yang mahal itu * Sharon Stone terlihat sangat classy, elegan, mewah dengan gaun sequinnya.




18. Paradise Kiss

Siapa yang tidak tahu mengenai Fashion style orang-orang Jepang. Ratusan gaya dan tren mode bermunculan dari berbagai kota di Jepang. Sebut saja, harajuku style, mori girl style, lollita style, dan banyak lainnya.

Oleh karenanya, tidak heran jika banyak film Jepang yang menjadi tren dalam hal fashion. Salah satunya yang paling membekas di ingatan saya adalah film ini. Berawal dari manga, anime, lalu ke film. It’s all about fashion.

19. Royal Tailor

Saya akui kalau saya memang pecinta drama korea, namun tidak dengan film-film mereka * walaupun ada beberapa yang saya suka juga. * Jadi, jangan heran kalau 1 film dari Korea masuk ke dalam list saya ini.

Royal Tailor adalah sebuah film yang membuat saya terpukau dengan baju tradisional Korea yang disebut hanbok. Belum lagi, Park Shin Hye yang notabene aktris Korea favorit saya, yang mengenakan pakaian tersebut, semakin membuat saya jatuh hati dengan hanbok.

Salah satu hanbok yang menurut saya paling indah di film ini adalah hanbok berwarna Gold yang dikenakan Shin Hye dengan anggunnya ketika ia menghadap sang raja di sebuah pesta kerajaan.

20. Coco Before Chanel (2009)

Sepertinya film yang satu ini tidak perlu panjang lebar dibahas. Just look at the title. Chanel! what an iconic brand in fashion world.

23. Sex and The City (2008)

No words to describe this movie since its pretty musch about their sense of fashion. Sebelum saya megenal film ini, saya terlebih dahulu mengenal drama serinya. Tidak terlalu terarik pada awalnya mengingat budaya AS jelas jauh berbeda dengan budaya Indonesia.

Tapi, melihat dari aspek fashion, I’m in love with this movie. Kita benar-benar dimanjakan dengan pakaian-pakaian indah, branded, dan mix n match yang keren. Belum lagi, nilai plus dari film ini, yaitu mengenai friendship between 4 of them, really make me envy.

24. The Great Gatsby (2013)

Film yang diangkat dari sebuah novel ini memberikan visual yang benar-benar indah. Kita dimanjakan dengan berbagai gaun cantik berwarna nude dan pastel yang dikenakan oleh Carey Mulligan * I love her. *

25 Boyband Tahun 90-an Yang Pernah Menghiasi Hidupku

Ketika saya sedang menonton drama korea Yongpal, tiba-tiba muncul sepenggal lagu yang dinyanyikan oleh boyband WestlifYeongpal memutar lagu tersebut dari HP-nya untuk Yeo Jin. *. Sejak saat itu, entah mengapa, saya jadi mengubek-ubek database mp3 hanya sekadar untuk mendengarkan semua lagu Westlife. Rasanya, nostalgia banget.

Di saat anak-anak remaja, ABG, alay, atau apalah sebutan anak muda jaman sekarang lebih menggandrungi boyband asal negeri ginseng, Korea dengan aliran musik mereka yang terkenal sebagai Kpop, saya dengan bangganya ingin memproklamirkan bahwa saya dengan ini, lebih dulu mengenal Boyband daripada kalian semua * hahaha, terus kenapa coba. * Tapi, boyband jaman saya dulu tentu saja didominasi oleh boyband besutan Amerika atau Eropa, terutama Inggris * Saat itu, MTV sedang dalam masa kejayaannya di Indonesia. Sehingga saya terekspos dengan banyak musik barat asal US dan UK. *

Kalau boyband jaman sekarang identik dengan yang namanya ketampanan alias kegantengan para anggotanya * suara mah nomor ke berapa kali ya, yang penting kemasan luarnya, * boyband jaman saya tumbuh besar dulu didominasi juga sama yang namanya ketampanan dan kegantengan.

Nah loh, apa bedanya coba?

Letak perbedaannya adalah tingkat ketampanannya. Kalau jaman dulu kayanya Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Nick carter, Ronan Keating, Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake itu udah pool bangets guantengnyah. Kalo diliat anak jaman sekarang palingan mereka dibilang biasa aja kali ya, atau bahkan culun kali ya * maklum beda generasi, beda tren, beda style. * Maklum aja sih, boyband jaman sekarang emang saya akui cakep-cakep bener anggotanya, bahkan kadang lebih cakep ketimbang saya.

Anyway, setidaknya bagi saya, mereka cakep semua * buktinya saya sampai menempel poster mereka dikala saya muda belia kekekeke. *

1. New Kids On The Blocks (1984)


Ini adalah boyband pertama yang saya kenal. The one and only, NKOTB. Anggotanya Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Danny Wood, Joe McIntyre. Boyband terkeren sepanjang masa. Siapa coba yang ga kenal “step by step. oh baby… ” Aaah… very nostalgic. My bias in this group is Jordan and Joey * kyaaaa… fangirling mode: ON *

Check this: Step by step, Tonight

2. All 4 One (1994) AS

all 4 one

Jamie Jones, Delious Kennedy, Alfred Nevarez, dan Tony Borowiak. Ini adalah salah satu boyband yang menjual suara dibanding tampang. Jujur, saya cuma kenal 2 lagu dari grup ini. Lagu yang paling terkenal adalah “I swear” sampai-sampai kayanya ini lagu sering dipakai pada saat acara ‘nembak,’ pernikahan, sampai prom night karena liriknya yang bikin klepek-klepek. This song still remain in my playlist until now.

I swear….by the moon and the stars in the sky… I’ll be there, for better or worst, till death do us part. I’ll love you with every beat of my heart and I swear.”

Check this: I swear

3. Boyzone (1993) Inggris


Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, dan Stephen Gately (RIP). Di jamannya, boyband ini cukup merajai di dunia. Saya pribadi masih mendengarkan puluhan lagu mereka hingga saat ini. Teramat cintanya saya sama mereka, sampai-sampai saya setia mengikuti kiprah si vokalis utama Ronan Keating yang bersolo karier. Dunia saya sempat runtuh ketika Stephen mengakui bahwa dirinya Gay, dan semakin runtuh lagi ketika Stephen meninggal dunia di tahun 2009.

Check this: All that I need, Love me for a reason, Picture of you

4. Backstreet Boys (1993) AS

backstreet boys

Keep The Backstreet Pride Alive!

Nick Carter, Kevin, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, dan A.J is the Backstreet Boys. I don’t think they ever been forgotten. Pertama kali mengenal boyband ini, yang ada dipikiran waktu itu cuma, “Ya Allah, ganteng-ganteng banget” dan orang-orang ganteng ini bilang, “I’ll never break your heart…” * huhuhuhu melted * Alhasil, poster mereka memenuhi dinding kamar saya saat itu juga. My bias in here, definitely Nick and Kevin * meskipun porsi menyanyi si Kevin sangat minim. *

Check this: I’ll never break your heart, as long as you love me.

5. NSYNC (1995) AS


Here come the amazing NSYNC! I can write pages about them.

Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, dan Justin Timberlake are my men. Saat saya mengira kalau Backstreet Boys is the best that I have, datanglah NSYNC. Ini adalah boyband pertama yang membuat saya benar-benar terkagum-kagum. Satu-satunya boyband yang semua anggotanya menaklukkan hati saya * I don’t have specific bias here since they all great.”

Betapa tidak, bagi saya mereka adalah cikal-bakal boyband-boyband KPOP saat ini. Boyband yang menawarkan paket lengkap, mulai dari wajah, penampilan, suara, musik, dance yang sinkron, koreografi, outfit, dan musik video. Benar-benar sebuah paket lengkap. Sampai-sampai saya selalu tidak mau ketinggalan setiap kali TV menyiarkan konser mereka secara LIVE, hanya karena they are the best when they are LIVE.

Bahkan ketika di MTV ada acara yang namanya Battle of Boybands antara Backstreet Boys dan NSYNC, I definitely chose them as the winner * sorry BSB, doesn’t mean that I don’t love you though. Cos I do.

One last thing. Ini adalah boyband yang melahirkan Justin Timberlake * walaupun Justin sudah terkenal bahkan sebelum ia bergabung dengan NSYNC. * Tapi, boyband inilah yang membuat namanya makin mendunia dan dicintai jutaan gadis belia termasuk saya, sampai saat ketika saya mengetik tulisan ini * I am a die hard fan. *

Check this: Bye Bye Bye, Tearin’ up my heart, This I promise you.

6. Hanson (1992) AS


Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson, dan Zac Hanson is not literally a boyband * tapi dari kacamata saya yang masih remaja saat itu, mereka tampak bagai boyband. * Saya memang bukan penggemar berat berat mereka. Tapi, mau tidak mau saya jadi suka lantaran teman sebangku saya ketika SMA * sebut saja namanya Erry * tergila-gila sama yang namanya Taylor Hanson.

Sampai-sampai yang dibicarakan selalu saja Taylor. Sampai-sampai nama belakangnya ditambahin Taylor Hanson. Sampai-sampai mengaku-ngaku kalau dia adalah istrinya Taylor * OMG. * Sementara saya, sering minder sama si Taylor karena dia lebih cantik daripada saya T_T

Check this: Mmmbop, I will come to you.

7. The Moffats (1990) Kanada


the moffats skrg 2

Scott Moffatt, Clint Moffatt, Bob Moffatt, dan Dave Moffatt. Uh huh, another siblings as a band. The moffat sebenarnya lebih merupakan band daripada Boyband karena mereka semua bisa memainkan alat musik, sama seperti Hanson. Daya tarik mereka * selain lagunya tentu saja * adalah kenyataan bahwa ada kembar 3 digrup mereka. I mean, kembar 3, identic pula, super mirip. Jadi, ketika band ini muncul dalam hidup saya, saya merasa mendapat durian jatuh, 3 orang sama gantengnya disatu grup * what a treat. *

Check this: I’ll be there for you, Miss you like crazy.

8. 98 degrees (1995) AS

98 degrees

Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, dan Jeff Timmons. “You’re my sunshine after the rain… ” is some of lyrics from their song. Bagaimana tidak meleleh coba dengernya. I love all their song. Meskipun gaungnya tidak terlalu terdengar di dunia * kecuali untuk Nick Lachey yang pernah menikah dengan Jessica Simpson, * but they will remain in my playlist ’till now.

Check this: Because of you, Invincible man.

9. Westlife (1998) Irlandia


Shane Filan, Kian Egan, Nicky byrne, Mark Feehily. Pertama kali mendengar lagu swear it again langsung suka. Awalnya bukan karena mereka boyband * mengingat era boyband sudah mulai memudar saat itu. kecuali untuk NSYNC dan BSB yang memang merajai dunia, * tapi memang karena lagunya yang mellow dan mudah dicerna. Selain NYSNC dan BSB, mungkin westlife lah boyband yang hampir semua lagunya saya punya dan suka hingga saat ini. Not just 1 or 2 song, I mean, lots of songs.

Jujur, my bias here is Mark. Akan tetapi, hati saya hancur berkeping-keeping ketika ia mengumumkan bahwa dirinya adalah gay T_T. Sejak saat itu, saya tak sanggup melihat musik video ataupun poster mereka * maklum, hati remaja macam saya saat itu masih teramat rapuh. *

Check this: Swear it again, Fool again, uptown girl.

10. Plus One (2000) AS

plus one dulu

plus one skrg 1

Nate Cole, Nathan Walters, Jason Perry, Gabe Combs, dan Jeremy Mhire. Saya tidak terlalu tahu mengenai boyband ini. But one thing for sure, saya suka banget sama lagu mereka Last flight out.

Check this: Last flight out

11. Boyz II Men (1988)

boyz II men

Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman, dan Wanya Morris. Wohoo, ini adalah boyband veteran. Tidak ada yang tidak kenal Boyz II Men. Grup hitam manis bersuara emas. All their song are amazing. Bahkan sampai sekarang, banyak lagu-lagu mereka yang masuk ke dalam everlasting love song dan masih sering diputar di radio maupun di TV.

Check this: I’ll make love to you, A song for mama, water runs dry.

12. Color Me Badd (1987) AS

color me badd

Bryan Abrams, Mark Calderon, Sam Watters, dan Kevin Thornton.Ini juga salah satu boyband veteran. Lagunya yang close to heaven sangat terkenal di Indonesia, sampai-sampai dibuat versi plesetannya sama P-project dengan judul Kop dan haden.

Check this: Close to heaven, Remember when.

13. Take That (1990) Inggris

take that

Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen, dan Robbie Williams. Okay, who don’t know Robbie Williams who make a hit with ‘Millenium’ and “Something stupid” with pretty Nicole Kidman. Ini dia boyband yang melahirkan yayang Robbie ke dunia entertainment.

Ini adalah boyband yang teramat sukanya sampai saya relakan menabung uang jajan untuk membeli kasetnya * yup, kaset ya, tau kan kaset kaya apa, bukan CD loh. * Jatuh cinta sama suaranya Gary Barlow dan tentu saja sama yayang Robbie. Love all their songs, especially in their first album.

Check this: Pray, Never forget, Back for good

14. Code Red (1996) Inggris

Code Red

Phillip Andrew Rodell, Neil James Watts, Lee John Missen, dan Roger Ratajczak. Not really remember about them, just that I still have their songs in my PC and still listening to it till now.

Lagu: Can we talk

15. Blue (2000) Inggris


Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan, dan Simon Webbe. Here come another era of boyband. Pertama kali dengar lagu Blue yang “all rise” saya langsung ter-wow. Maklum, suaranya bagus, pembagian suara di antara mereka bagus banget. Lagu mereka yang mellow, R & B, sedikit Hip Hop, pokoknya musik jaman sekarang banget, berhasil menarik hati penggemarya di Indonesia kala itu. Apalagi lagunya yang bareng Elton John ” sorry seems to be the hardest words, ” keren banget. Sedih sih, tapi keren banget.

Check this: All Rise, One love

16. 911 (1995) Inggris

Check this: The day we find love

17. O-Town (2000)

Paul Marazzi, Christian Ingebrigtsen, Mark Read, dan ben Adams. Not quite remember also about them. But the song ‘like a rose’ is quite remembering.

caught in the act dullu

caught in the act skrg

Lee Baxter, Benjamin Boyce, Eloy de Jong , dan Bastiaan Ragas. Not quite remember also about them, except for the fact that Eloy de Jong had relationship before with Stephen Gately (RIP) from Boyzone. The song called “babe” meskipun lagu lama yang dirilis ulang, cukup menarik perhatian.

Check this: Baby comeback, Babe

20. East 17 (1991) Inggris


east 17 skrg

John Hendy, Terry Coldwell, Robbie Craig, Brian Harvey, dan Tony Mortimer. Boyband ini salah satu favorit saya juga. Saya suka dengan karakter suara masing-masing personilnya dan juga dengan lagu yang mereka nyanyikan. Terutama “each time” entah kenapa selalu saya putar diplaylist. I think I just really love the beat.

Check this: All around the world, Each time

21. Blackstreet (1991) AS

blackstreet dulu

blackstreet skrg

Not really a fan of them, but I do love all their song. “No digitty” is one of my all time favorite. Bahkan ketika lagu tersebut dicover oleh penyanyi lain pun, saya tetap suka. Satu lagi yang ngehits banget adalah “In a rush.” Lagu ini cocok banget buat kamu yang lagi jatuh cinta dan ingin mengekspresikan cinta kamu ke orang yang kamu suka * tsaaaaah terbang melayang *

It came over me in a rush when I realize that I love you so much, that sometimes I cry but I can’t tell you why, why I feel what I feel inside…”

Check this: No diggity, In a rush

22. Get Ready (1995) Belgia

get ready

get ready now

Got hook with this boyband just because they are not coming from US or UK. Ketika boyband ini muncul, kesan pertama yang muncul adalah penasaran, ” wow, dari Belgia. ” Saya saja sampai susah menyebutkan nama personilnya kala itu.

25. C21 (1998) Denmark


C21 skrg

Søren Bregendal, Esben Duus, dan David Pepke. Ini kasusnya sama seperti pertama kali saya kenal Get Ready. Got hook with this boyband just because they are not coming from US or UK. Sementara selama ini kebanyakan boyband berasal dari kedua Negara tersebut. Makanya ketika boyband ini muncul, kesan pertama yang muncul adalah penasaran, ” wow, dari Denmark.

Yong Pal, The Gang Doctor

Here come my newest addiction. After immerse into the story of Na Bong Sun and Chef Kang in the amazing drama called Oh My Ghostess (also known as Oh My Ghost), finally I can move on to another drama. Thanks God, Yong Pal is coming to the rescue.

Yong Pal is a Korean drama about a doctor named Kim Tae Hyun (played by the handsome and tall Joo Won) who is a very skillful surgeon.

At day, he works in Hospital while at night he did a house call for gangster. And the sole reason is because he desperately need money to pay the loan shark and also to pay for her sister dialysis (she is very sick).

But I think, Yong pal is really love to be a doctor from the bottom of his heart. Because for whatever reason or status, he will definitely help his patients. And he don’t care with other’s opinion about him.

He then meets Han Yeo Jin (Kim Tae Hee), a ‘princess’ who is in deep sleep at the hospital.

She kind of a sleeping beauty waiting for his prince which none other than Yong Pal. And that is where all the story began.

I really really love this drama. That is why I’m following this currently airing drama. Usually, I am the type who will wait until the drama ends.

But for Yong Pal, I patiently wait for the next episode to be aired. The action, intense, and emotion portrayed by the actors are amazing.

The Original Soundtrack, oh the OST is dragged me more into this drama.

Here is the list of the OST:

1. The One – To My Love ( OST Part 1)

2. James Brown – I feel Good (episode 3, when Yong Pal do the make over for his looks)

2. Yong Jun Hyung and Heo Ga Yoon – Nightmare (OST Part 2)

3. Westlife – Angel (episode 7, when Tae Hyun play a song from his phone for Yeo Jin)

4. Jung In – Actually, I’m Scared (OST Part 3)

5. Baek Ah Yeon – So We Are (OST Part 4)

6. K. Will – Coming To Me (OST Part 5)

7. Park Hye Soo – Remember Me Only (OST Part 6)

25 Korean Drama Based on Manga/ Manhwa/ WebToon/ Webcomic

We have seen lots of Manga, Manhwa (Korean Manga), Webtoon, or Webcomic made into live action dramas in many countries especially countries in Asia.

Sometimes, these drama is better than the original itself. But, there are also some that really out of our expectation and made us stop watching after few episodes.

The good thing about these kinds of dramas are, we already know the story so we won’t be tortured to wait next episode when it airs. Also, we can imagine all the cast looks like and how would they act.

The bad thing is we already had our own imagination and expectation about the story and the cast, so if it not fit into ours, then somehow it will ruin the drama.

Here are 25 Kdrama from manga/manhwa/webtoon/webcomic up to the year of 2015 I have tried to enjoy. Although I must say, I am not quite enjoy all of them. Since I drop off some of the drama after few episode.
