Synopsis: Sprout is based on a popular manga by Nanba Atsuko that’s been serialized in ‘Bessatsu Friend’. The love story in ‘Sprout’ evolves when two high school students, named Souhei and Miku, start living under the same roof after Miku’s parents turn their home into a boarding house.
Review: This drama is based around finding that person you believe to be your fated one… and giving up on that hope when you find the one you believe is the one for you and they are taken… and trying to mask those feelings with feelings for another person. Did you get all that?
Its cute to watch, even if it is frustrating at times… complete innocence. The relationship between Miku and Souhei that shift and grows in many forms… You cant really turn off loving someone you truely love… can you?
The relationship between Souhei and Miyuki… which becomes complicated. If you find out someone like you… does that make you question your current relationship? I wonder.
and the relationship between Miku and Hayato… which ends before it really begins. One of the most confusing parts of the drama.
I am all about fate, and destiny. But sometimes you need a little push in the right direction, and thats the message this drama gives.
A good romance drama when youre in the mood for an innocent high school romance drama…
Genre: Melodrama, Romance
Synopsis: ”The Winter, The Wind Blows” is a story about a man who is known to be the best gambler in Cheongdam neighborhood. He lives a meaningless life after being abandoned by his parents and failing at his first love relationship. In order to pay his debt, he starts living with a rich girl who is the heir to a large corporation. However, he falls in love with the girl, who is also as lonely as him. She has also lived a difficult life. She has lost her eyesight and her father has passed away. She will have to protect herself from those around her.
Review: Well then… that was dramatic. Seriously could possibly by one of the most dramatic dramas ive seen.
Even though its extremely dramatic, and theres alot of crying in the drama, I didnt find myself that attached to anything in particular. I found myself waiting for the scenes that showcased Eun Ji, as i found her acting refreshing and fun to watch, ( I absolutely LOVE her) The twists and turns of the drama were some what unexpected, and I wasnt bored.
Wrapped up in their own suicidal thoughts, both Oh Soo and Oh Young are kind of perfect for each other. Although, I would never act that way with my older brother. I think that even if she had lived a sheltered life she would still know right from wrong in how to act with your sibling.
At one point I felt that Oh Soo went into creeper mode… I thought it was pretty funny… and it made me giggle watching him stalk her through the city.
Being wrapped up in how bad your life is… I can understand that. And wanting to end your life because of it… I can understand that too. I dont know why, but I was kind of amused when Oh Young went off the deep end when her medication was taken from her… and she resorted to using a knife… well… if i cant drug myself… >.>
Im actually really curious now about this whole… “cover the girls mouth” kiss… like … this isnt even a KISS… its more of an … invasion. theres no kissing involved here. Maybe im just SO out of the loop that ive forgotten the mechanics of kissing. nomnomnomnom.
I guess the only negative thing I can say about this is the over the top dramatic scenes… facial expressions and crying were way over done… to the point of almost being funny… or “wth is this?” Oh Soo’s angry face… srsly some funny shit.
If you’re in the mood for something melodramatic, and watching some gorgeous actors…. this is your drama.
In this sequel to Switch Girl; Nika spends her time vying for Arata’s affections while getting into ALL sorts of trouble…
Welp… there was no synopsis for this one… but basically Nika spends her time wanting to get it on with Arata, and getting upset because he wont show his feelings for her.
So many wonderful and strange things happen in this second installment that… its better that i dont go through them… and just let your imagination run… and have you watch it for yourself… =3
As with Switch Girl 1, Nika gets herself in some super deep trouble this time, and of course Arata is there to get here out!
Too short, but definitely a fun watch!
Based on a manga… about a girl who has an on mode, where shes cute and adorable, and an off mode, where shes rude and can act herself.
Synopsis: Description: TAMIYA Nika is a beautiful, outgoing, popular high school girl. She has just the right look, just the right fashions, and is everyone’s friend. What everyone at school does not know is how hard Nika works to keep up this perfect image, and what she is REALLY like at home. When not at school, Nika is a scary, sloppy, tight-fisted girl who wears glasses, an ugly sweatsuit, and has her hair pulled back into unattractive buns. She lays around playing video games and reading manga. Her attitude is bossy and cranky, and she travels far out of her way to shop where she won’t be recognized. Every day, Nika “Switches On” with a strict regimen of beautification that involves primping and plucking and careful dressing. The only person who knows about Nika’s Switched On/Off modes is her best friend, who is also aware of the reasons behind the changes. However, soon a second person finds about about Nika’s personalities - someone who has his own On/Off switch, but in reverse! His name is KAMIYAMA Arata, and he is a recent transfer student. He meets Nika when she is in OFF Mode, and then again at school when she is ON. However Nika can see that he has his little secret. At school, Arata wears thick swirly-eyed glasses and messy hair that make some bullies think he is an otaku. However, at home, he ditches the glasses and is downright gorgeous! He is just the opposite of Nika, but why?
Pretty down right accurate synopsis for one… which will make my review short and sweet.
I actually watched this quite a while ago and forgot to write a review (until i watched 2)… The whole show surrounds Nika and her trials surrounding Arata and not letting her secret OFF mode being found out by other people.
Arata is the first person to discover this, but then again they both discover each others secrets.
Nika spends the show falling for Arata, and getting into all sorts of trouble when other parties get involved and threaten the both of them.
Nika must save Arata when he is kidnapped and drugged and it pushes the limits of their possible new relationship.
Funny, witty and dork-able show… HIGHLY recommend it if youre in the move for something that comedic with a small slice of romance.

Feel free to watch this if you want to be depressed… sorry, but… truth.
Synopsis: One night, Suni glimpses a shadow in the stable; the next day, she discovers a feral boy of about 19 crouching in their yard. The boy’s body temperature is 46 degrees Celsius, his blood type unidentifiable, and he can neither read nor speak. Even though he behaves like a wild beast, Suni’s kindhearted mother adopts him and names him Chul-soo, assuming he’s one of more than 60,000 children orphaned in the Korean War.
Not exactly wrong, but i will elaborate…
You will NOT be able to contain your feels for this movie… I repeat. NOT.
Suni, as a grandmother, receives a phone call from Korea about a property and must travel there… during which time she reminisces about a time when she was a girl and her family moved into that house.
When there, she came across a wild child, who her mother ended up adopting and calling Chul-soo….
Suni shys away from him at first then when he becomes protective of her, she decides that maybe he can be trained and learn how to be more… “human”
All of her training is… adorable. The interactions between the two of them… its really heartbreaking because you can tell that almost off the bat that there is this connection between them but YOU KNOW… they cant be together.
Of course, you have this sleezey guy around and he MUST have what he wants… he feels that Chul-soo is in the way of having his way with Suni, so he endangers her and forces Chul-soo to change into his were form… this creates a problem and the military are forced to come in… I really feel that anyone trusting the word of ONE person is bullshit… i mean COME ON… and a sleezey guy at that.
Suni eventually escapes with Chul-soo and forces him against her will to leave her… to do this she treats him badly and runs from him…
Back to present day… she ventures to the shed (his sleeping area) in the middle of the night and finds him there… This part is a little hazy for me because he hasnt aged, and when she wakes he is missing. I almost expected her to pass away when she fell asleep… I know thats horrible of me… but didnt it seem that way?!?
The acting is SUPERB from most of the cast in this… (the sleezey guy… really couldnt stand him AT ALL) Song Joong Ki… omg he was so amazing… I HIGHLY recommend this honestly…
even tho… youll be severely depressed when its over… i warned you.
Quite a different story in the “Flower Boy” series… fall in,love with a shut in…
Synopsis: ’Flower Boy Next Door’ features the love story of an ‘urban rapunzel’ Go Dok Mi who gets caught by her the flower boy Enrique while sneaking glances at her neighbor.
Here you have Go Dok Mi, a shut-in copy editor who is some what obsessed with her flower boy neighbor that she spies on from her window, who she has never met I might add… Protected by the bubble of her home, she rarely ever ventures out, mainly because of her school days where her supposed best friend turns her back on her and causes her severe trauma.
Enter brother of flower boy neighbor, Enrique, who is a famous game designer, and is back from Spain for a month…. rejected by his first love, who consequently is in love with his brother, CATCHES Go Dok Mi “spying” through her window.
He becomes intrigued by Go Dok Mi and wants to show her what the outside could be like…
Stage right. Go Dok Mi’s direct neighbor, Oh Jae Won. Secretly watches over Go Dok Mi, and has fallen for her. srsly… forever alone.
Yoon Dong Hoon lives with him and the both of them are creating a web comic, yet the comic is about Go Dok Mi and the triangle that is forming between her, Oh Jae Won and Enrique.
Finally, enter Cha Do Hwi… stuck up
best ex-best friend of Go Dok Mi, traumatizing bitch who chose popularity over friendship, and she comes back into her life to use her to get to Oh Jae Won….
Now that you have a subtle background… Go Dok Mi’s experiences werent traumatic enough for me to really believe she would be a shut in for so long…. It made it hard to believe for me… and ive been through some really traumatic shit.
Enrique’s character moves from being childish to serious too much and it made me confused… You can act childish without acting like you are 5 years old, this part of the drama really irritated me. When he was silly to the point of being juvenile i couldnt bear it. Some would consider him “cute” but reaaaaaaaly come on… do you want your BF to be “cute”? I want my BF to be haaaandsome! thank you. I honestly liked him better when he was a semi-serious character with a side of -ism silliness… dont tell me know dont know what im talking about… anyway…
The love shown between Enrique and Go Dok Mi is eventually your typically we love each other but we cant be together, because we wont be fulfilling our dreams, but we want to be together, but we cant… blah blah…. you know what I mean here… its really typical. But they face hardship just like any other relationship…. basically cause shes somewhat of a shut in and hes younger… I know.. but that makes a difference in Korea.
Also, Cha Do Hwi’s character was way over the top but, honestly i can understand that and its to be expected… You just want to punch her in the face some times.
The whole interaction between Enrique, his brother, and his first love left me a little confused… but it didnt take up much of the story line… so meh…
The placement of the Japanese character, Watanabe…. was pretty much hilarious… his disjointed Korean and the cooking classes… it just made me giggle.
Overall, alot of the drama felt a little fake to me, but hey, i guess it could happen. The story flowed nicely and I wasnt bored. It was funny, and was a good watch. Even though there were points that annoyed me, that doesnt mean it was a horrible drama. Just that things seemed unrealistic and were awkward… if that makes sense.
I have to say though that i looooved the interaction between Yoon Dong Hoon and the editor… they were really fucking cute…=3
JUST LOOK AT THEM!!!!! ALKJGHSDJFL!!!!!
Not as good as the other Flower Boy dramas… (Nothing… NOTHING beats Shut Up…) but it was a decent drama.
BTW…. just say NO to Enrique’s hair at the end… No…NO!! 아나요!!!!
KILL ITTTTT BURN IT WITH FIREE!@!@!!!*@(R&Q)@$^)*Q@$^)!!!
