Salut mes amis!
This week has been a very productive one. Productive in the way that I got to watch 4 amazing shows that I think have changed my life .
First up is the acclaimed Cheese in the trap…
1.Cheese in the trap
Plot: Drama depicts the delicate relationship between female university student Hong Seol (Kim Go-Eun) and her senior Yoo Jung (Park Hae-Jin). Hong-Seol works part-time due to her family’s poor background. Yoo Jung is good looking, gets good grades, athletic and has a kind personality, but he has a dark side.- asianwiki
The Korean drama based on a web series hasn’t failed to reach my expectations each week with its beautiful twists and turns. (By the way I’m on team Sunbae !)
2.She was Pretty
Plot: “When Sung-Joon (Park Seo-Joon) was young, he was ugly and fat. He also didn’t have any friends, but popular and pretty Hye-Jin (Hwang Jung-Eum) became his friend. She gave him comfort on rainy days when Sung-Jung feels traumatised. They held a special connection with each other, but Sung-Joon and his father moved to the United States. 15 years later, Sung-Joon returns to South Korea. He and Hye-Jin are set to meet again for the first time in many years, but Hye-Jin is unable to show herself in front of Sung-Joon who is looking for her. Both of their appearances have completely changed. Sung-Joon is now handsome and perfect in his appearance, while Hye-Jin looks nothing like her former pretty self. Hye-Jin is also unemployed and looking for a job. Hye-Jin then asks her best friend Ha-Ri (Koh Joon-Hee) for help. Ha-Ri is to pretend she is Hye-Jin and go meet Sung-Joon. At their meeting, Ha-Ra pretends to be Hye-Jin and tells Sung-Joon that she is leaving for England the next day to study. Later, Hye-Jin, as an intern at a fashion magazine, meets Sung-Joon who is an editor at the fashion magazine.“- asianwiki
Genre: Romance ,Comedy
This drama has to be my favourite out of the 4. It’s so fascinating and exciting that I couldn’t stop watching it.Hwang Jung-Eum’s character Hye-Jin is so likeable that you find yourself having a little friend crush on her.
A must watch of 2016!
3. My little Lover
Plot: “Shunichi Minami (Taishi Nakagawa) possesses good looks and does well academically in high school. Chiyomi Horikiri (Maika Yamamoto) is a bright girl who likes dancing. They were childhood friends and also their first loves, but after Shunichi Minami’s father disappeared they hardly talk. On a storming night, Chiyomi Horikiri has an argument with her parents over her future course and leaves home. While trying to avoid the rain, Chiyomi Horikiri wishes that she go back to her childhood. Suddenly, Chiyomi becomes 15 cm. tall. Shunichi Minami happens to see tiny Chiyomi Horikiri. She tells him that she doesn’t want anyone else to see her and Shunichi Minami takes her his home.” –asianwiki
I was not really keen on this drama when I started it .However the young actors did do a splendid job and the twist at the end was actually not expected .
4. My little Monster
Plot:“Impassive girl meets trouble maker in a brand new love story! After Mizutani Shizuku, a girl whose sole interest is studying, is asked to deliver some handouts to Yoshida Haru, a boy who hasn’t come to school after spilling blood on the first day, she finds herself the target of his affection. This is a story about a boy and a girl who struggle with love and friendship. Opening yourself up to other people forces you to be honest with yourself.” – crunchyroll
My little monster must be the cutest anime that I have watched in a long while. I also feel strangely connected to Mizutani Shizuku and her ‘strange’ behaviour . Maybe due to the fact that I see some aspects in my character in her.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you check out all 4 shows !
P.S What shows should I check out next?
