SO ROMANTIC!

I have to admit, I was sceptical of the whole “Look-at-me-I-can-see-ghosts” Idea but it was surprisingly well done. The female lead of The Master’s Sun, Gong Shil always helps those ghosts to fulfill their last wishes, then they vanish to The Other Side. Most of the ghosts’ stories were heartbreaking and made me cry. A lot. And then there were others, that were rather scary and sometimes a little weird. Those stories made this drama so interesting and unique, as well as the perfectly written love story between the two main characters.

The last four episodes were so so so romantic and well done! I don’t want to give anything away but boy, I really live for cheesy shit like that.

If you’d consider yourself a hopeless romantic like me I’d definitely recommend The Master’s Sun to you. Don’t be taken aback from the mystical aspect of it, trust me on this one.

PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST KOREAN DRAMAS I HAVE EVER SEEN.

I can’t specifically say what it is about this drama, but I really enjoyed it. Honestly, I think it’s probably because of how realistic it was. School 2013 shows how difficult growing up can be and gives us a perfect view into the world of  troubled teenagers. Love for example also played a role in this drama but wasn’t the main story line, unlike friendship and overcomming certain phases of life.

The characters were unique and almost everyone had an interesting backstory which explained their current behaviour. The bromance between the two male leads was amazingly well done. I have to admit, I kind of wanted those two guys to end up together and I remember how I saw a manip of them kissing on Tumblr before I had watched the recent episode at that time and I freaked. I got sooo excited and when I actually watched the ep I ended up being super disappointed. I’d be lying if I didn’t look into some fanfics……..

School 2013 was also one of the first korean dramas I watched and it got me hooked. I’d really recommend it to literally anyone who likes korean dramas!
