K-Dramas What have been watching lately.

There are many things that I love in life, and some of them are the Asian culture. From Japanese manga to K-pop and lately, I fell the Kdramas hole. Thanks to Netflix and platforms such as Viki I am now able to embrace with both arms the K-dramas world.
Lately have been enjoying a few of them (series) and I thought I share them with you.


On Netflix:

I do like school teenagers' drama and if you are into this too then you will love School 2017
This Netflix drama tells realistically of the many various troubles that High School students can face, from heartbreak, anxiety, family loss, bullying, etc. Ra Eun Ho is just one of them, struggling in a school that discriminates against rich and poor. She has a low grade but she has a talent for drawing webtoon, her high spirit, bubbliness, and generosity lead her to be best friends with student leader Song Dae-Hwi and rebellious student Hyun Tae-Woon. Together they fight in their own way bullyings, discrimination, and to discover who is the unfamous 'X'.
I found this series very well filmed, beautifully cast with young and talented actors, and very believable apart few scenes that might seem maybe a bit 'over the top', but the overall series will score 8/10 for me.
I love the 3 main actors, they all fit perfectly together they are loveable, and make this series a total enjoyment.
So far series 1 is on Netflix of 16 episodes, each episode lasts around 60-65minutes.  A long and very enjoyable series. I am not sure if a series 2 is planned but if not the serie1 is a delight so go enjoy it right now.









Viki.com:
Compared to School2017, this series is more on the burlesque/comedy side of it. If you do not mind series that are a bit silly but yet fun to watch then you might enjoy the very popular True Beauty. This story is based on a very famous Webtoon series, which I did partially read, but I could not get into it. The filmed series is a different experience in my opinion and is extremely fun to watch if you don't take things too seriously and like a bit of light enjoyment.
It's the story of High School girl Lim Ju Gyeong, who after being bullied and discriminated against for being perceived as 'ugly', masters the art of makeup to transform herself into a gorgeous "Goddess".
It also tells her love story with the good-looking but unpopular Lee Su Ho the boy that saw her without makeup on one eventful night, before her new face was revealed to her new school where no one knows the girl behind the make-up.
As mentioned above it's goofy, it's fun, and it's pure school dramas but the main 3 characters: Lim Ju Gyeong, Lee Su Ho the rich and mysterious boy along Han Seo Jun the delinquent trouble maker take you on a whirl of fun adventures.
But few questions remain? Who Lim Ju Gyeong heart would be taken by? And will she'll hide her secret forever? Tune in to Viki to watch this truly fun series.
My note:7/10
