What are your favourite Korean movies or dramas and why?
This question is from awhile ago and it already has multiple answers… but I can’t resist. No one has said anything about Twenty!Twenty is a relatively new comedy from Korea. It is downright HILARIOUS. The humor is kind of crude at times, but not overly-so. Nevertheless, the perfect amounts of reality and romance are littered throughout the film. (I should tell you, however, that its target audience is young adults, so if you are looking for something really mature, this isn't your movie.)The acting is some of the best I have seen out of Korea. I have somewhat of a bias being a huge Korean drama fan, but the cast is perfect and their work is fantastic. Kim Woobin’s scenes are particularly entertaining — I highly recommended finding this out for yourself. He is an incredibly talented actor. Plus he’s a babe.It’s kind of hard to find, but its on Drama Fever and you can watch it if you have Premium or do the Premium free trial just for the movie. Otherwise, if you speak Spanish or Korean, here is the link for the movie on YouTube with Spanish subtitles:GO WATCH IT!
Which Korean drama shouldn’t you watch?
Although I loved all the Korean dramas I watched, but there were few which were intolerable.Boys Over Flowers : God knows why it is so overrated. The only reason I could complete it was because of the second lead couple.Playful Kiss: Another crazy drama without any head or tail. A desperate girl who is shown innocent and a handsome guy without expressions.The Return of Illjimae : Another drama that went over my head.Marriage not Dating: I started this drama since it had great views, but then I realised all that shines is not gold.Don't watch these dramas if you want to keep your sanity intact.Hope this helps.
