Flower Boy Next Door (2013)

genre- Romantic Comedy

starring: Kim Ji Hoon, Park Shin Hye, Yoon Shi Yoon

Flower BoyThis drama is a delightful comedy about growing pains, coming into your own, and of course—the flower boys’ next door… or across the street… or across the hall. I really did enjoy this drama for its light heartedness and look into the lives of a few people trying to live their lives in different ways—coming together to form/repair friendships; all while learning more about their shortcomings. Will this group be able to live up to your expectations?

I like this drama because it was minimal drama and more problem solving, and I adore Yoon Shi Yoon!

This drama is an extremely well played look at social anxiety. The cast had adorable chemistry but knew when to bring the serious. Loved it.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, That Fool, or In Soon is Pretty

That Winter, the Wind Blows (2013)

genre- Melodrama

starring: Jo In Sung, Song Hye Gyo, Kim Bum, Jung Eun Ji

That WinterCrack a coconut of thanks to the drama gods! Jo In Sung returns to the small screen in this melodrama that is not only pleasant to the eye due to the directing and cinematography, but also because of the beautiful cast. Jo In Sung plays a swindler caught in a sticky situation which forces him to take on his greatest con job yet, swindling a blind girl. To his surprise, he is bamboozled by his emotions (damn emotions!). Will he be able to complete the job?

Cinematography, acting, and a strong storyline make this one of the top 10 dramas of 2013.

Visually one of the best dramas I have ever seen, story wise not so much. Inconsistent characterizations keep this show from owning the masterpiece status.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

A Man’s Story, La Dolce Vita, Tree of Heaven, or Nice Guy

7th Grade Civil Servant (2013)

genre- Action/ Comedy

starring: Joo Won, Choi Kang Hee, Hwang Chansung, Kim Min Seo

Level 7

The James Bond School of espionage meets the K-drama book of love. Dramatic spy tales are interspersed with comedic love stories, leaving our lead characters (a goofy girl from the neighborhood and a determined James Bond fan) to figure out what it means to be agents of South Korea’s intelligence service- and what it means to fall in love.

The writing is atrocious. I love the actors in this series, so the failure of Level 7’s story hit me hard.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Iris II, Spy Myung Wol, or Sweet Spy

Incarnation of Money (2013)

genre- Comedic Drama aka Dramady

starring: Hwang Jung Eum, Kang JI Hwan, Park Sang Min, Choi Yeo Jin

IncarnationMoney, Money, Money, Moneeeeeyyyyy…. MONEY! Though this drama is steeped with serious issues of greed, betrayal, and love it is told in the most comedic way. A young man sets out to take his revenge on the people who killed his father, locked his mother up in an asylum, stole his family’s fortune and destroyed his life completely. A factor that is most tantalizing about this drama is that no one hands are completely clean (even our gallant hero), and there is always more of a face to the enemy.

I enjoy the writers of this drama because they have a knack for breathing life into characters who seem one dimensional if they were in another drama. How will you feel at the end of this drama? Does everyone get their “just desserts”?

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Giant, History of a Salary Man, or King of Dramas

Nine: 9 Times Time Travel (2013)

genre- Suspense/ Supernatural

starring:  Lee Jin Wook, Jo Yoon Hee

NineTalk about a constant nail biter! Nine is a story about time travel like you have never seen it before. This story is about a man constantly trying to “fix” the lives of people around him by going back in time and altering the course of events. But the more he tries to “fix” the more problems he causes. This drama is a perfect example of how small our world really is and how certain things are just “meant to be”.

Love this drama for every single thing it brings to the table. It is more than likely my favorite drama of 2013.

A suspenseful story of time travel, illness, and misbegotten actions, this is a superb drama. More than likely my second favorite drama of 2013.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Joseon X- Files, Queen In Hyun’s Man, or Who are You

All About My Romance (2013)

genre- Romantic Comedy

starring: Park Hee Soon, Lee Min Jung, Shin Ha Kyun, Han Chae Ah

All RomanceIf you like an adult romantic comedy—this is right up your alley. A cute story all about- wait for it… Romance! Two political figures with similar views want to start dating. As only a romantic comedy  can do, they are from two different political parties. Their relationship could ruin both of their careers if revealed. Will this couple be able make it through the difficulties of career and romance?

I liked this drama because it was straight forward and funny, with just a twinge of drama.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Greatest Love, He Who Can’t Marry, 9 endings and 2 outs, or Dr. Champ

When a Man Loves (2013)

genre- Romantic Drama

starring:  Shin Se Kyung, Yeon Woo Jin, Song Seung Hun, Chae Jung Ahn

A man's loveIf this drama is a reflection of what comes about when a man loves— we can put that back on the shelf and walk out the store. Two men loving the same woman go all out in this tale of romance, betrayal, and misunderstandings.

This drama kind of sucked in my book—the acting, storyline, and characters were all flat and questionable. However, there are people out there who did enjoy the drama for the reasons I did not.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Temptation of an Angel, A Love to Kill, Lovers, or Shinning Inheritance (Unnichan recommends Fashion King)

Jang Ok Jung, Live to Love (2013)

genre- Sageuk

starring: Yoo Ah In, Hong Soo Hyun, Kim Tae Hee, Jae Hee

JOJ

What if one of the most reviled concubines in Korean history was actually just a woman in love? Jang Ok Jung attempts to answer this question with a look at an alternative version of history. Full of sweeping romance set against a historically rich background, JOJ is an engaging and interesting watch.

JOJ was thrilling to watch. There were plenty of ugly moments in this drama (the whole JOJ evil thing) yet the majority of this show was engaging with a nice plot consistency. One of the best romances I have ever seen – even if it was kind of makjang.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Jewel in the Palace or Dong Yi

Gu Family Book (2013)

genre- Sageuk, Romance, Fantasy

starring: Lee Seung Gi, Bae Suzy

Gu FamilyEver watched a drama where you care about everything else but the main couple—that is the impression Gu Family Book gives. This is a story about a half human -half gumiho trying to make amends with his past, find hope, and understand what it means to become “human”.

I personally wasn’t feeling this drama because the first 2 episodes were the best; if the story were different perhaps I would have enjoyed it more.

An inconsistent plot and terrible writing countered by Lee Seung Gi and Suzy. Unfortunately our adorable leads could not save this one. 

 “Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Sangkyunghwan Scandal, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, or Arang and Magistrate

Mandate of Heaven (2013)

genre- Sageuk, Thriller

starring: Lee Dong Wook, Song Ji Hyo, Im Seul Ong, Kim Yoo Bin

Mandate of HeavenOne of the few Sageuk’s worth watching this year. A talented doctor and friend to the Crown Prince pretends to be a “quack”. Framed for murder, he is constantly on the run while trying to save his sick daughter’s life. Will he be able clear his name and save his daughter?

Though this drama is steeped with corruptions, greed, and murder—there are several moments that are pleasant and sweet. Do not let this one slip under your radar!

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Two Weeks, Tree with Deep Roots, or Wish Upon a Star

Shark (2013)

genre- Revenge

starring: Son Ye Jin, Kim Nam Gil

SharkIf you want to watch a show that is minimal love and more revenge do not miss Shark. Kim Nam Gil stars as a man trying to avenge the death of his father, all while attempting to take down one of the most famous and loved men in South Korea. Unfortunately, the man he is trying to take down in the grandfather of the girl he once loved. Will he be able to complete his revenge and make the streets of Korea a little better?

I liked this drama because of the obvious (Kim Nam Gil) and it dealt with a lot of issue that most good revenge dramas neglect.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

A Man’s Story, Homicide, or Runaway: Plan B (Unnichan recommends Resurrection or The Devil)

Monstar (2013)

genre- Musical, Teen Melodrama

starring: Yong Joon Young, Ha Yeon Soo

MonstarAttractive kids, good music, and a decent storyline—all the things that make up this adorable drama of 2013. An idol gets into a bit of trouble and has to attend “regular” high school to let the heat of his latest controversy calm down. Will he be able to adjust to the normalcy of a high school student?

I really enjoyed this drama because it dealt with a lot of issues that teens encounter on an everyday basis—it was very nostalgic and sweet.

I love me a coming of age story. Monstar was certainly that with a huge dose of music to boot. The characters were interesting and the story was consistent and well-paced.  This show has a lot of heart.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Heartstrings, Answer Me 1997, Shut Up Flower Boy Band, or To The Beautiful You

I Hear Your Voice (2013)

genre- Comedic Drama aka Dramady

starring: Lee Jong Suk, Lee Bo Young, Yoon Sang Hyun, Lee Da Hee

I hear your voice

Fantasy, drama, and courtroom antics join forces to make up the story of I Hear Your Voice. Jang Hye Sung is a public defender with a childish outlook while Park Soo Ha is a high school student who has spent years searching for the woman who gave his father’s murderer a dose of justice. The two meet up and a tale of revenge, love, and purely outrageous fun commences.

Loved it- my heart has never raced so much. The suspense in combination with the emotional investment this show elicits is pure torture, but in a good way (which sounds weird, I know). Powerful ensemble cast and great writing carry this show from beginning to end without missing a beat.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Master’s Sun, Who Are You, or My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

Ten/ Ten 2 (2011- 2013)

genre- Crime, Procedural

starring: Jo Sang Wook, Jo An, Kim Sang Ho, Choi Woo Shik

Ten-2This two season crime drama is sexy, smart, and thrilling. A detective’s fiancé is killed by a serial killer while they were in the process of catching him. Years later, the detective forms a special unit to not only solve the heinous everyday crimes but to also assist in finding the person responsible for killing his fiancé—but they are not aware they are helping him in his revenge!

Loved this drama! Nothing else needs to be said.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Vampire Prosecutor, White Tower, Royal Family, or Return of Iljimae

Cyrano Dating Agency (2013)

genre- Romantic Comedy

starring: Hong Jong Hyun, Lee Chun Hee, Choi Soo Young, Lee Jong Suk, Jo Yoon Woo

Cyrano

Silly heroine, Hot Ahjussi’s, and adorable sidekicks—make up the recipe of this “romantic” comedy. Our leading lady is in love with love and wants to set up everyone with the right partner. When she meets up with “Cyrano” of the dating agency she is faced with a dilemma- will she be able to aide in making matches all over Korea in the face of a dating agency that operates in the name of methodical actions?

I personally did not like this drama—our leading lady was too immature and silly for me to enjoy the show. I am certain there are people out there who disagree, which is why I have different flavors of tea to know if you will like it.

Loved the look and feel of this show, loved the cute and episodic cast dynamic even more. While not a heavy hitting drama, the right type of show for a snowy winter day when all you want to do is snuggle in a blankie and watch something light hearted and delightful. Cute.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Wild Romance, Triple, or Pasta

Who Are You (2013)

genre- Supernatural, Suspense

starring: Kim Jae Wook, Ok Taecyeon, So Yi Hyun

Who Are You

Kim Jae Wook has returned with a vengeance in 2013! This drama is a supernatural suspense about a young lady being able to see ghost after 6 years of being in a comma. Suffering from temporal amnesia, will she be able to remember the love of her life and clear his name of being called a “dirty cop”?

The best thing about this drama was Kim Jae Wook! Hands down, I would not recommend people watch it, but if you are a Jae Wook groupie ho, it might be worth seeing him just for a smile (you can catch that in episode 1).

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Master’s Sun, Sign, or What’s Up Fox

Two Weeks (2013)

genre- action/thriller

starring: Lee Jun Ki, Kim So Yeon, Ryu Soo Young, Park Ha Sun

2 weeks

Tae San has lived his life as a meaningless pile ole…well, you know. One day he finds out that he has a daughter – who is unfortunately stricken with Leukemia. If that was not enough bad news, Tae San is in the midst of being framed for murder – right after finding out he is the only person who can save his daughter’s life (via a bone marrow transplant). Gangster super assassins, fugitive scare tactics, and the truth of the matter follow this sad, sad setup.

Suspenseful with a gigantic heart. This is not the most original show ever produced in dramaland by any means- however it still leaves its mark with an engaging blend of nail bighting action and an interesting web of relationships.

Great show to marathon! I am not sure how much I would have liked the drama if I watched it week to week. Loved the characters, loved the story, Glad they were really able to pull off the show in the 14 episodes after the first two were a setup! Jun Ki looked amazing (I secretly had a crush on him before I saw him a drama)! 

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Mandate of Heaven, Heartless City, La Dolce Vita

Master’s Sun (2013)

genre- romantic comedy, supernatural, horror

starring: Gong Hyo Jin, So Ji Sub, Seo In Guk, Kim Yoo Ri

Masters Sun

Gong Shil had an unfortunate accident that left her with an ability to see ghosts. Enter the CEO of Kingdom Enterprises, who at first glance is Gong Shil’s shelter from seeing spirits. However Mr. CEO is dealing with his own past, which becomes quickly intertwined with Gong Shil’s special abilities. Will Gong Shil be able to keep a distance from Mr. CEO? Will Mr. CEO be able to shun the new found light he has found in his life? Will viewers be able to deal with all of the double entendres served up Hong Sister’s style?

The chemistry of the cast is spot on. The Gothic tone was visually well played, the writing was Hong Sisters dynamite. The characters were brought alive by Hyo Jin and Ji Sub. One of my top dramas of 2013.

Must see of 2013! No one in the world like Master! Nothing else needs to be said…

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Who Are You, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, The Devil

Good Doctor(2013)

genre- medical drama

starring: Joo Won, Moon Chae Won, Joo Sang Wook, Kim Min Seo

GD

Park Shi On is autistic and a savant, possessing genius capabilities in medicine he has lived his life to become a surgeon (with a tragic childhood to boot). Shi On becomes a temporary resident in a pediatric surgery department at a university hospital, hoping to show what he is made of in order to overturn the dismissal of his medical license due to his disability. While working at the university hospital he meets his senior surgeons – Professor Do Han and Dr. Cha, both of whom have their own opinions on what makes a good doctor. Will Shi On prove himself or play into those who want him to fail?

Heartwarming – pretty much sums it up if I had to describe Good Doctor in one word. Good Doctor is all about how people can learn from each other and become better people – an extremely poignant and touching story.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Surgeon Bong Dal Hee, Jejoongwon, Brain

Mi Rae’s Choice (Marry Him if you Dare) (2013)

genre- Romance, Time Travel

starring: Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Dong Gun, Jung Yong Hwa, Han Chae Ah, Choi Myoung Gil

Marry Him if you dare

Time travel with an interesting premise – would you go back in time to change your own life if you ended up marrying the wrong guy? How much would you meddle, and how good would you feel about it? Choi Myoung Gil plays the future version of Yoon Eun Hye’s character (Mi Rae, which translates to Future, clever pun that is) and makes a trip to the past to correct the bad choices she made, namely marrying principled broadcaster Kim Shin (Lee Dong Gun).

This drama left a bad taste in my mouth because the plot seemed to switch focus halfway through. Cute at times, but plot inconsistencies can overwhelm the cutest of shows.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

King of Dramas, What’s Up Fox, Nine (the time travel bits)

Heartless City(2013)

genre: Thriller

starring: Jung Kyung Ho, Nam Gyu Ri, Lee Jae Yoon

Heartless City

Heartless is an understatement when it comes to this drama. Take a ride into the underworld where drugs, money, and respect rule the streets of Seoul. When Doctor’s Son aka Jung Shi Hyun is accused of killing a cop, Ji Hyung Min makes a vow to bring him to justice. But things are not all that they seem to be when it comes to Doctor– nor anyone in this show. Corruption and Justice, love and hate, right and wrong are all considered grey areas in heartless city.

Hands down one of the best dramas of 2013! Jung Kyung Ho gave a stellar performance for this being his first project fresh from the military. If you are looking for a sweet lollipop and kisses kind of show– ignore this one. But if you are looking for raw, in the street, gritty down and dirty? This show is right up your alley!

Dark and gritty, this show captured the look and feel of a good noire to a tee. Undercover cops, gangsters, and lives not worth living populate this tale of Korea’s shady underbelly. A thrilling pace, amazing directing, and a bevy of well written antiheroes make this one drama worth watching (especially if you have over dosed on sweet and sticky rom-coms).

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

A Man’s Story, Two Weeks, or Gaksital

The Suspicious Housemaid (2013)

genre: Suspense, Family

Starring: Choi Ji Woo, Lee Sung Jae, Wang Jin Hee, Song Jong Ho

the-suspicious-housekeeper

Quirky maid comes to assist a family when the mother commits suicide after discovering the father is having an affair. Can this maid help this family come together and work through their issues? Why is the maid so suspicious?

I was just thankful this drama was over. It was a remake from a Japanese drama but I was not feeling it. It had some good parts, cute parts, but a lot of repetitiveness that made the drama drag on and on. I think if I would have seen the Japanese version, perhaps I would enjoy it.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Bad Family, Creating Destiny, or Can we Get Married?

Answer Me 1994 (2013)

genre: Coming of age, Romance, Comedy

starring: Go Ah Ra, Jung Woo, Yoo Yun Suk, Kim Sung Kyun, Min Do Hee, Baro, Son Ho Joon

Answer Me 1994

Take a trip back to 1994 with a colorful cast of university students residing in a boarding house. Nostalgia rules the roost as this drama paints a poignant and hilarious coming of age tale. As time progresses, and beepers give way to cell phones, where will our characters end up? And just who will Na Jung marry?

An amazing ensemble cast populates episode after episode with their interesting and hilarious lives. Romance, however, is not left behind as the story is centered on the mystery of who marries our female lead, Na Jung. There are things this show did well (the characters and the funny) and not so well (a drawn out mystery plot point that was a detriment to the narrative). All in all a good show, with some flaws that can be forgiven when compared to the dramas strong points.

Loved this drama. Very easy, lite show to enjoy over and over again. Since the show ended the way it did we really could have made it 16 episodes instead of 21, but they were all enjoyable episodes. If you liked or enjoyed AM97, I certain you will enjoy this one as well.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Answer Me 1997 or Monstar

The Heirs (2013)

genre: Romance

starring: Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, Kim Woo Bin, Choi Jin Hyuk, everyone and their brother

The Heirs

Growing up wealthy is not all it seems, as evidenced by the dysfunctional students of Jeguk High School. Kim Tan, the second (and secretly illegitimate) son of Jeguk Group has been acutely afflicted by his childhood as an heir to a conglomerate. Returning to Korea from studying abroad, Kim Tan resumes his life as a High School student. What will happen when he meets his new classmate, the poor and spirited Eun Sang (who he met by accident in California)? Will he throw away his inheritance for true love?

Hype, hype and more hype surrounded this show. The Heirs was entertaining, but the large cast of characters were never given much development. Shiny, full of bling, and gossip girl-esque but far from a masterpiece.

Since I had no expectations for this show, it turned out to be a decent show. Not great or anything to write home about, but certain characters make the show worth watching. Honestly, I would never recommend someone to watch this show unless you love drama, sadness, and teenage romances– oh and eye candy.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Boys Over Flowers, Monstar, or A Gentleman’s Dignity

Pretty Man aka Bel Ami (2013)

genre: Romantic Comedy

starring: Jang Geun Suk, Lee Jang Woo, and IU

Pretty man

A drama about a… You guessed it– A Pretty Man and his struggle to grow up, learn to love, and get a life. In order to do this, he will encounter 10 different women to “use” and learn from, to obtain his final goal. Will he be able to use the skills these women teach him to deal in life, love, and business?

I only wanted to see this drama for Jang Geun Suk and Jang Woo. The drama was not that bad, but definitely ludicrous on several aspects. I do not feel my time was wasted, but this had potential to be a much better drama, given it had more time and better character development.

Not a fan, based on the storyline that disintegrated into um, an hour of IU chasing after Jang Geun Suk. While he chased other women. And yeah, about that ending…

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Incarnation of Money, Invincible Lee Pyung Kang, King 2 Hearts

Umi no Ue no Shinryojo aka A Clinic on the Sea (2013)

genre- Comedy

starring: Matsuda Shota, Takei Emi

Umi no Ue no Shinryoujo

A boat that travels from island to island to helping citizens, mostly elderly, young, or not able to travel to the mainland. Sezaki Kota (Matsuda Shota) is an intelligent doctor who is on the PROWL looking for a wife. Every time the boat docks, it is an opportunity to fall in love with beautiful young women. On the boat is Nurse Togami Mako (Takei Emi), who seems to always have an attitude and believes that Kota Sensei is a charlatan. Will these two be able to resolve their differences and work together peacefully? Will Kota Sensei find love on one of the islands?

This show started off kind of shaky, solely based on the acting. Love Matsuda Shota, but comedy is  not my favorite genre from him. The show did end on a good note and I enjoyed the episodes more and more.

Dokushin Kizoku aka A Swinging Single (2013)

genre- Melo Romance

starring: Kusanagi Tsuyoshi, Kitagawa Keiko, Ito Hideaki

DokushinKizoku

Kusanagi Tsuyoshi plays President Hoshino Mamoru of a movie production company who is happily content with his single life. When Haruno Yuki (Kitagawa Keiko) an aspiring script writer appears in his life, will his vow to stay single forever last?  Not to mention Hoshino Susumu (Ito Hideaki), Mamoru’s younger brother, recent divorcee, and business partner has his eye on Yuki as well. How can these 3 survive business, love, and conflict!?

Love, Love, Loved this show! It is a modern take on the classic movie Sabrina! If you like shows with a hint of romance take a look at this one, you will not be disappointed.

Ando Lloyd〜A.I. knows LOVE? (2013)

genre- SciFi

starring: Kimura Takuya, Shibasaki Kou

AI knows love

When Matsushima Reiji (Kimura Takuya) is unknowingly murdered, an android from 100 years in the future comes to the past to keep Reiji’s Fiancée’, Ando Asahi (Shibasaki Kou) alive. Over time this emotionless Android, Ando Lloyd (also Kimura), seems to develop emotions. How will everything play out in this Sci-Fi thriller?

I really liked this drama. There were a few elements that were really preachy, but the overall theme of Scifi was done really well. And let’s face it… Any time I get an opportunity to see Kimura- san is a win win for me.

Switch Girl!!(2011-2012)

genre- Romantic Comedy

starring: Nishiuchi Mariya, Kiriyama Renn

switch girl

Tamiya Nika (Nishiuchi Mariya) is a typical high school student who happens to be a switch girl.  When she meets Arata (Kiriyama Renn), a hottie at school during the day, she later finds him to be a reverse Switch Boy. Follow these two as they become closer through high jinks, shenanigans, and teenage fun.

A very light hearted comedy about much of nothing; it was quick, funny, and nostalgic at the same time. This drama definitely shows the difference in Japanese culture in comparison with US culture, but it is not completely un-relatable. Seriously, this is the second most foolish Japanese drama I have seen (Nodame Cantabile was hands down #1, but I loved it!) Please be prepared…

Stand in Princess aka Substitute Princess aka The Adventure of King Flower (2013)

genre- Romantic Comedy

starring: Chris Wu, James Wen, and Nikki Hsieh

Subs

It is about a young girl, Jin Da Hua, an “ugly duckling” who gets the opportunity to “fix” her appearance, and stand in as a replacement until the injured fiancé of Ouyang Tai aka Terry wakes up. What happens in this game of deception and hijinks? Will she fall for Terry? Will he fall for her? What will happen to Jin Da Hua’s first love Lin Guan Jun?

This show was cute but it definitely got unsure of itself towards the end. Overall I did enjoy it and would recommend people to watch it.

P. S. Man aka Womanizer (2010)

genre- Melodrama

starring: Blue Lan, James Wen, Sonia Sui, and Bianca Bai.

PS Man

The P.S. Man is supposed to be a womanizer, manipulator, and all around jerk. When he is given mandatory community service (due to a publicity stunt gone awry) to work with kids; he is reunited with a childhood friend who believes that she was bullied and ridiculed by him. Can these two set aside their difference to become friends, lovers, or nothing?

The show was exhausting after a while, but not the worst Taiwanese drama I have ever seen. If you keep in mind Taiwanese dramas have a tendency to become more crazy than a Mahkjong Korean dramas, you should be able to finish this one.

Easy Fortune Happy Life (2009)

genre: Drama

Starring: Blue Lan, Joe Chen, and Roy Qiu

Easy Fortune

A man meets a young village girl who saves his life. He later steals her herbal remedy and claims he will return— He never does. When he becomes older, filthy rich  and a surly *censored*, he becomes upset at the way his family acts when it comes to inheriting his company and money. He meets the young village woman’s granddaughter and makes a deal that which ever one of his grandsons marry her will inherit the family fortune.

Talk about a cluster *censored* of wrong footing! I hated this drama because it perpetuates the stereotype that rich people are greedy, evil, idiots and that poor people are honest, pure, and always right.  I cannot stop you from watching it but please take caution as it is utterly ludicrous from 21 jump street. I was only able to get through 11 episodes because this show was total boo boo. Roy is hot, Blue is hot and that couldn’t even save this drama!

Love Now (2012)

genre: Romantic Comedy

Starring: George Hu, Annie Chen, Dou Zhi Kong, and Mandy Wei

Love Now

Cute lighthearted drama, about a man who has been looking for a girl for years. He finally runs into while away on business and discovers that she has cancer! He marries her and offers to spend the rest of her life with her. What happens when he discovers that her family tricked her into taking a vacation and she doesn’t have cancer!

George Hu, originally born in the US (Yeah Baby!), is the best ever in this drama. He is the reason why you will watch episodes back to back to back!

After School: Lucky or Not (2013)

genre: Webisode, Comedy

Starring: 5uprise, Kim So Eun

After School

I can’t even describe what this show is about without busting into tears of laughter. The real premise is to gain exposure for the boy group 5urprise. 5 friends ask an outsider to join their club as they take on many different challenges. Will they be able to accomplish all the challenges? What is the real reason they asked So Eun to join their group?

This was the funniest thing I have seen in a long time! Cute 15 minutes (or less) episodes about much of nothing! Enjoy the cameos and hijinks of this group as they will warm your heart. And Seo Kang Joon (from The Suspicious Housekeeper) has a fan in me– that kid is so darn adorable!

The Prime Minister and I (2013)

genre: Romantic Comedy

Starring: Lee Beom Soo, Yoon Si Yoon, Im Yoo Na, Chae Jung Ahn, and Ryu Jin

Prime Minister and I

A Scandal reporter ends up in a contact marriage with a man to appease her terminally ill father and to prevent a rumor from being found false. Did I mention the contract marriage is with the prospective next Prime Minister?! How will things end with this show of hijinks, shenanigans, and WTF’s?

Lee Beom Soo continues to warm my heart until the very last episode. Great show for over half the drama– I believe if there wasn’t an extension, it could have been so much better. My life could have kept on spinning without the last 3 episodes.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

My Princess, King 2 Hearts, Full House, That Fool

Aftermath (2014)

genre: Webisode, Suspense

starring: Kim Dong Jun, Kim Min Suk, Kim Geun Hyung, Kim Ri Ah, Sun Joo Ah

Aftermath

After an accident, Ahn Dae Yong has a heighten since of smell, and sees people who are about to die (red eyes) or people who are about to kill (blue eyes). When he finds another person out there with his abilities, will he be able to deal with the creepy stranger; along with love, everyday life, and making the right choices?

A very interesting webtoon turned into webisodes. Loved every minute of it! I highly recommend shows that are webisodes to people who do not have a lot of time on their hands, but want to be entertained. I love shows in this particular genre (suspense) because it makes you think.

Twenty Years Old/ 20’s (2014)

genre: Romantic Comedy

Starring: Lee Ki Kwang, Lee Da In, Kim Hye Ji, Kang Tae Oh, and Kim Dong Sook

20's

A cute little short story (almost like the webtoons but longer) about idol Lee Ki Kwang of B2ST dating. Primarily, the story revolves around the young lady that he is dating in her trials of being 20. Will these two be able to face the hardships that coming along with growing older, loving, and dating?

Oh how cute this was! I am becoming such a fan of short stories like this one. I am not a huge B2ST fan, but I find myself loving the individual members like Ki Kwang more and more. If you have an hour of spare time, you should really take a look at this one!

You From Another Star (2014)

genre: Fantasy Romance

Starring: Kim Soo Hyun, Jun Ji Hyun, Park Hae Jin, Yoo In Na

You Who Came from the stars

Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) is an alien who has been stranded on earth for the last 400 years. His rescue is soon approaching with the arrival of a comet that promises to return him to his home planet. However Min Joon has not planned for Song Yi, an arrogant headstrong actress, to enter his life. Once Song Yi shows up all bets of leaving earth no strings attached are off.

This drama hit all of the sweet spots for me – funny, serious at times, daebak acting, and great writing. A drama about a stranded alien had plenty of potential to go amiss, this story did anything but disappoint. Highly recommend.

This drama ended in 2013 and started my 2014! Loved it! Loved it! Soo Hyun redeemed himself from the tragedy of Moon/Sun with this drama. If you love fantasy, romance, and thrills watch this drama!

I always have a hard time with the INR franchise but I keep coming back for more! There was only one thing I liked about this drama: the people who needed to be together– ended up together (That’s right INR2012! You sucked!). Cute, lighthearted, mature. Even though I thought the main character Joo Yeon was too old to be such an idiot, I am able to give this a good rating overall.

Thank you EC for restoring my faith in TV and entertainment this week (Week of April 1st 2014)! This show was sweet and to the point. I enjoyed what the show was trying to say about love, relationships, and self reflection. I liked the maturity and the simplicity… If you like more adult liked dramas, I recommend this for you.

Kim Jung Tae is a fighter… He fights for justice, freedom, and most of all to protect those he loves. When his father is accused of murder will he be able to clear his name and save all the people depending on him?

OMG! Please keep in mind the description given of this story is vague and disjointed because this show was vague and disjointed! This is hands down the worst show of 2014 and the year has just started. A drama will actively have to WORK to be worse than this one. Sorry.

There are exactly 3 good things about this show- and they have everything to do with eye candy and nothing to do with a coherent storyline. If you ever feel like paying penance for something via watching a drama that makes you regularly question logic, sanity,  and plot than this is your show. Disappointing, because the setup and cast had so much promise. Still bitter, because this show could have been so, so much more.

Kang Goo

Kyung Tae, an intelligent gangster, visits his deceased best friend’s hometown. What happens when He falls in love with his best friend’s sick noona (older sister)? Can Kyung Tae fulfill the promise made to his deceased best friend?

Talk about non stop tears! I am excited I got to see one of Lee Dong Wook’s projects this year (because I refuse to watch Hotel King). Moving, sweet, endearing drama. Defintely recommend if you have 2 hours to kill.

 

The Hours of My Life (2014)

genre: Melodrama

Hours

Sawada Takuto finds out he has ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) after he finally able to land a full time job after college. Follow his journey through dealing with work, family, friends, and love.

One of the best dramas that I have seen dealing with this particular topic. Tears will flow, but smiles with creep through here and there. I loved how this show was consistently positive while dealing with a heavy topic. I feel like a better person after I completed this drama.

God’s Gift- 14 Days (2014)

starring: Lee Bo Young, Cho Seung Woo

genre: Thriller / Mystery

Poster Gods Gift

Soo Hyun is a writer for a current affairs program. She is married to human rights lawyer Han Ji Hoon. Together they have a young daughter named Saet Byul. Soo Hyun’s life is ripped apart when her daughter is abducted and murdered. Via a mysterious turn of events Soo Hyun is sent 14 days back in time (prior to her daughter’s murder) and given a chance… to stop her daughter’s death. Her second chance is mysteriously tied to the life of private investigator Ki Dong Chan, who is also given the gift of 14 days to save his brother from a wrongful execution.

The first half of this show is solid. The second half not so much. Still worth watching, probably will hold up better as a marathon than a live watch. Lee Bo Young is awesome as usual.

Secret Love Affair (2014)

Secret Love Affair

 

Oh Hye Won is a forty something director of an Art Foundation. She is married to a music professor, her days are spent being the faithful lackey to a rich and corrupt family that operates the Art Foundation.

As Hye Won experiences falling in love for the first time, will she have the courage to leave her life of privilege behind? And how will Sun Jae, coming from an impoverished background, reconcile his feelings and his new love’s ambitions?

Love, love, love this drama. This is a mature story that is not shy when it comes to the ugliness that life, love, and ambitions can deliver. Gorgeous directing and solid writing drive this show from beginning to end.

I mean, what can I say? I loved it. Mature, steady pace, Yoo Ah In tortured and a mess… It was beautifully done and was very underplayed for how brilliant it actually was.

One day she meets Yoon Dong Ha, a 25 year old with a kind heart and a sad story. When fate brings them together as coworkers will they be able to reconcile their past loves and find a future together?

Cavity inducing at its best, popcorn throwing at its worst. The cute moments are worth it, but beware of the series faltering midway through (with a recovery towards the end).

Gap Dong (2014)

starring: Yoon Sang Hyun, Kim Min Jung, Sung Dong Il, Lee Joon, Kim Ji Won

genre: Thriller, Mystery

Gap Dong Poster

1996- A girl is brutally murdered in Gyenggi Province. Her death is tied to other murders, in what appears to be a case of a serial killer. The media gives the killer the name of “Gap Dong”. Ha Il Sik is suspected of the crimes, however he commits suicide before anything can be proven. 17 years later his son, Moo Yeom, is a detective working to clear his Father’s name. When a series of murders occur that match the Gap Dong profile the police are on high alert. Meanwhile Moo Yeom charges ahead, resolute to capture the real Gap Dong and clear his Father’s name in the process.

The story gives too much away too soon yet the characters are amazing. A psychologically driven drama, this show is all about how people react and less about what they react to (mainly because that was ruined by the story giving everything away too soon). If you are looking for a traditional thriller look elsewhere, if you want to spend twenty hours with a cast of f-ed up characters and introspection than this is your show.

Doctor Stranger (2014)

starring: Lee Jong Suk, Jin Se Yeon, Park Hae Jin, Kang So Ra

genre: Medical, Action, Melodrama

Official Poster Doctor Stranger

Park Hoon is the son of a famous South Korean Thoracic surgeon. Hoon’s Father went to North Korea for secretive reasons, Hoon (a child at the time) followed him. After a series of unfortunate events Hoon ends up a doctor in an experimental hospital in North Korea. Eventually Hoon escapes to the South, but leaves his true love behind. Now a doctor at one of South Korea’s top hospitals, Hoon does anything he can to rescue the woman he left behind in the North.

So much promise, so much disappointment. Logic was not this shows best friend. Neither was chemistry. Too many conspiracies too little reasons to care. A solid beginning dissolved into such ridiculousness it was funny- unintentionally so. And there was a ten episode plus arch revolving around a contest – a surgery contest. In that surgeons competed against each other, usually the winner was crowned because their patient lived. Yep. That happened. Hippocratic Oath be damned apparently.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Good Doctor (for a decent medical drama), King 2 Hearts (another North/South drama)

You’re All Surrounded (2014)

starring: Lee Seung Gi, Cha Seung Won, Go Ara, Ahn Jae Hyun, Park Jung Min, Oh Yoonah, Sung Ji Roo.

genre: Action, Comedy

Youre All Surrounded PosterDae Gu, Uh Soo Sun, Ji Gook, and Park Tae Il are rookie detectives at the Gangnam Police Station. Leading this team of nugus is a detective called “the legend” – Seo Pan Suk, a hot headed and fearless leader. As the rookies of Gangnam PD learn what it takes to be a real detective, secrets are uncovered and hijinks ensue.

A good drama if you want to kick up your heels, ignore some plot points, and laugh. Funny, with a good friendship dynamic among the cast. Pacing and some of the plot logic was faulty, but the leads were endearing enough to make up for it.

This show should have been 16 episodes. It started off strong but really lost me after we really found out what happened. The show was full of annoying foreboding but had very sweet cute moments as well. Holla for a Dolla Cha Seung Won…

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (another Lee Seung Gi comedy), Sweet Spy, and Crime Squad

Trot Lovers (2014)

genre: Romantic comedy, Musical

Trot Lovers Poster 1

Choi Choon hee is a young woman with an amazing voice. When misfortune befalls her family she scrambles to try to make a living for her sister and herself. Jang Joon hyun is a sonwriter / musician who is known as a top star. When his career comes crashing down due to a scandal his future will become expectantly intertwined with that of Choon Hee’s future as a singer.

A solid beginning dissolves into makjang madness towards the end of the series. The music is fun, the main leads are well played and written – but the final conflict is poorly thought out and executed.

*Sigh* I wanted to love this drama from start to finish. Excited for Ji Hyun Woo’s return! Love Eun Ji… That’s it.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

genre: Romantic Comedy

Sly and Single

After two people decide to call it quits; Na Ae Ra decides to work for her ex-husband’s company to get back what is rightfully hers. Can this couple work through the difficulties of their long abandoned marriage and divorce and start a new?

I liked the drama. I think some aspects were very well played out and others were glossed over. It did not give me the same feeling as Emergency Couple, but I do think it is worth taking a look at.

Full sun

When Jung Se Ro framed for murder, he returns 5 years later to seek his revenge. When he falls in love with the daughter of the person who ruined his life, will he be able to let go of his revenge to hold on to the one he loves?

I really really liked this drama. It was well played by the actors involved, the dialogue was strong, and the cinematography was stellar. This is not the revenge drama that is full of twist and turns; it is simply laid out some might find it boring. I loved it!

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Joseon Gunman (AKA The Joseon Shooter) (2014)

Starring: Lee Joon ki, Nam Sang mi, Jeon Hye bin, Han Joo wan, Yu Oh seong

genre: Historical, Action

Joseon Gunman 9

In the time of enlightenment, Joseon is faced with a fragmented political atmosphere – those who support reformations and those that will stop reforms at any cost. Park Yoon Kang’s Father is in the middle of the battle, a battle that will turn Yoon Kang into the Joseon Shooter.

A pretty solid historical revenge drama, with some flaws that are easy to overlook given the whole of the story. An interesting villain and a history lesson are two of the highlights of this show, of course the main highlight is Lee Joon ki.

Anything with Lee Joon Ki Oppa is my favorite, but aside from that his was a really good Sageuk. Pretty scenery, Descent storyline, and great characters.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

its okay thats love poster

Jang Jae Yeol is a bestseller author and radio host (with a chip on his shoulder and some odd quirks). Hae Soo is a psychiatrist working on her own anxiety issues. When these two strong willed individuals meet, will they find love or mutual dislike?

Love, love, loved this drama. This is not your typical drama fare – the subject matter is more mature than most shows. The directing, writing, and acting were all solid and beyond what I could have anticipated. Even the OST was on point. While there were minor moments that caused me to side eye, they were very easy to get over given how magnificent the rest of this show was. One of my favorite (if not favorite) dramas of 2014.

Witty, charming, delightful, real. If this is not the best drama of 2014, I have no idea what everyone else was watching. Do not let the ratings fool you, this is a MUST see for anyone who enjoys dramas.

Fated to Love You (2014)

Starring: Jang Hyuk, Jang Na Ra, Choi Jin Hyuk Wang Ji Won

genre: romantic comedy

Fated to Love You

A selfish Chaebol heir and a plain jane office worker find themselves suddenly thrown together – all thanks to a hazy one night stand resulting in a pregnancy. As marriage enters the picture, will these two find true love thanks to a random relationship..that may not be so random after all?

A romantic comedy that can compete with the best. There were some hiccups here and there but they were pretty forgivable when all was said and done. Sugar candy unicorn rainbow sprinkles coat this drama, detracting from the more bittersweet, depressing moments (which are well played). And I love Gun. The end.

This version was (IMHO) better than the original. Less dramatic, very comical, and what is not to love about Jang Hyuk showing his abs?! Gun was my favorite character of 2014… But I recommend everyone watch both the Taiwanese and Korean versions.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Master’s Sun (another solid romantic comedy), Lie to Me (for the similar premise), Fated to Love You (Taiwanese drama that this is based off of).

genre: Revenge

Golden Cross

A man finally attains his dream of becoming a prosecutor! When his sister is murdered and the blame is pinned on his father, wil he be able to reveal the truth and bring all those involved to justice?

Kim Kang Woo is one of those rare actors that can be a villain (A Man’s Story), a comedic hero (Haeundae Lovers), or the man seeking justice and truth! This show had a lot of questionable moral behaviors, but I really did appreciate it from start to finish. If you are in the mood for a good revenge plot, this is the way to go.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

A Man’s Story, The Full Sun, and Big Man

genre: Drama

three days

Uh oh! Someone tries to kill the president to cover up a mess! Join Han Tae Kyung, Yoon Bo Won, and crew as they slowly unravel the mysteries of the past, bleeding into the very confusing present of the president’s assassination.

Loved, Loved, LOVED this drama! It started off with a few ???’s in the eyes, but was definitely cleared up and was able to move full steam ahead. If you are looking for a drama that is about the process, gets your thought process flowing, and full of high action– this is the drama for you. I think this is a good one to introduce to boyfriends, husbands, etc. who think that dramas are simply about love and romance.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

“Darling have a heart.” is an understatement! Kim Ji Hyuk unfortunately is a match for Kang Dong Suk… his vital organs that is! When Dong Suk’s family tries to steal Ji Hyuk’s heart (literally kill him and steal it), things don’t go over so well when Ji Hyuk doesn’t die! How will Ji Hyuk feel once he finds out the truth?

Had no idea what this drama was about, but my goodness when I starting watching. This was not the worst drama nor a favorite– it is what it is. Best thing was seeing Daniel Choi ruin my life every week. Thanks Daniel *smooch*!

gramps over flowersWhen 4  young up and coming detectives come together– something goes tragically wrong when three of them turn into the cutest halbaes you have ever seen! Join this wacky group as they solve crimes, make you laugh, and find out how to be restored to their youthful selves!

3 of the cutest grandpas coming together to make a show… How can this not be a good idea. I really liked this drama and constantly applaud TVN (network) for developing good dramas worth watching! If you are looking for something lighthearted and funny, this is a show for you!

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Temptation (2014)

Starring: Choi Ji Woo, Kwon Sang Woo, Park Ha Sun, and Lee Jung Jin

genre: Melodrama

temptation

Can money really buy love? Probably not, but it can destroy lives in more than one way. Yoo Se Young extends a gracious offer to Cha Seok Hoon… She will pay off his debts if he says with her for 3 days. No problem right? Well, he is married! Will his marriage be able to survive the turmoil of this dangerous but needed proposition?

I was not really feeling this drama. It made a mockery of marriage and displayed how idiotic revenge and bitterness really can be. I am not advising anyone to watch, but if you are curious, do so at your own risk.

“Cups of Tea” similar to this drama are:

Can we get married, New Tales of Gisaeng, or Can Love Become Money

    • Glad that you like it! We are always trying to encourage drama watchers without scaring them from dramas. Even though we (Lore and I) might not not like it, another person certainly will!

      EK

      • You obviously watch a lot of drama and it seems you have a somewhat similar taste as me. My first drama was flower boy next door, maybe thats why I immediately took to the idea.
        Could you recommend some fantasy supernatural dramas that you’ve watched. Not including the ones on your blog.

      • Absolutely! There is Queen In Hyun’s Man (loved), I Love Lee Tae Ri (or Italy), Dr. JIn Time Slip (didn’t really care for this one), Arang and the Magistrate (AWESOME), Secret Garden (it was ok), Rebirth (interesting), Joseon X-Files (best drama of 2010), My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (cute), 49 Days (loved), Vampire Prosecutor (it has 2 seasons, excellent), Rooftop Prince (Not my speed- but you may enjoy), Faith (If you love Lee Min Ho you should watch), Ohlala Couple (I didn’t care for this one).

        I watched Aftermath on http://www.dramafever.com. Most of these shows should be available on their website. You should be able to view if you are in North or South America. They are working to stream globally in the near future. Let us know if you have more questions!

  1. Thanks for this list. I would recommend you guys watch Healer. I was going to see what you thought of it bit it wasn’t on your list.
    You won’t be disappointed (stick with the backflashes to the ’70’s which totally annoyed me at first but which totally flesh this out as things are revealed). It’s part CityHunter, part Lois & Clark and…it just had everything!

  2. So i stumbled to this page…the dramas i have watched and read the reviews here and my personal thoughts just match! So gonna trust your taste and recommendations from now on! Very thankful for this ! 🙂

Ramble On...
