Descendants of the Sun is a South Korean drama based around the relationship a doctor and a Special Forces soldier. The story follows these two as well as a couple other relationships as they face their adventures in Korea, Urk (a fictional desert land), and within the operations of the medical field and Special Forces field alike. The two main characters Kang Mo Yeon, a surgeon that is placed in the placed in the marketing section for the hospital and Yoo Si Jin, the Alpha team leader run into each other through unlikely circumstances.
After Kang Mo Yeon and Yoo Si Jin meet and go on a couple of interrupted dates, Si Jin is deployed on a mission to Urk for 8 months. Mo Yeon becomes the face of her hospital and is involved in a sexual advance from the head of the hospital. Upon her refusal, she is sent with a volunteer team, involuntarily, to Urk to give medical aid.
From here the two meet again and are devastated by a disastrous earthquake. Both teams stay to assist in the treatment of the people of Urk. Many are killed and many suffer terrible injuries. Most of the show takes place in Urk.
This drama is full of action, comedy and of course, drama. There are many scenes where it goes from action to comedy to drama all within the scene. I love this drama. It is involving and exciting. It really gets you into the story and makes you feel for these characters. The ending is really funny as well because all of the characters go to a wedding of some people they had met in Urk. The wedding takes place in Canada and all seems well, but then a volcano breaks out and the team gets ready for an emergency, wondering if anything will be normal again.
If you like dramas for their action sequences, this drama is for you. If you enjoy watching shows that involve a great love story, this drama is for you. If you love good comedy or drama, this drama is for you. Thank you for reading through my review of Descendants of the Sun even though it's ridiculously late. I've watched it through twice since it has came out, so that tells you that I've been procrastinating on this. But thanks anyway, those of you who give me support.
Uncontrollably Fond is a South Korean drama starring Bae Suzy from k-pop girl group Miss A and Kim Woo Bin from other dramas such as The Heirs. The story follows Suzy's character, Noh Eul who has always struggled to make ends meet. At a young age, she witnesses her father become involved in a hit and run by a young Korean girl. For years and years, she struggles to make a famous prosecutor find the true suspect of her father's hit and run.
Throughout all of this, a guy named Shin Joon Young played by Kim Woo Bin tries winning her affection but is rejected outright every time. Years later and Joon Young is a famous actor and singer and is still pining over Noh Eul. There are a lot of complicated relationships going on throughout this drama which I think makes the audience care even more for the characters than they normally would have.
Honestly this drama is nothing special but for some reason, I want to keep watching it. The development of Suzy's character and how bad you feel for her, but at the same time, watching Joon Young struggle with keeping the secret from the world that he has cancer, is at the same time satisfying and heart-wrenching. One of the scenes that gets me the most is when Noh Eul gets drunk on the beach and takes Joon Young's phone and calls Ji Tae, a guy that rejected her twice, and begs him to take her back. I feel so bad for Joon Young at the scene because he's trying so hard to be nice and help Noh Eul but she just continues to reject him.
I can't wait for the next episodes to come out and to finish the episodes that are out currently. This drama for some reason just grabs my attention and won't let it go. I stopped watching W – Two Worlds for the time being because I just want to focus on this incredible drama. I don't think I gave away too much so please do watch this drama. It's incredible and so heart-wrenching, like I said. I'll post one more drama review after I finish the drama completely, but I just wanted you to know my thoughts on Uncontrollably Fond. Thanks for reading this and supporting me.
Kdramas are an important part of K culture, and therefore I use this section of my website to give my overview and review of certain Kdramas I have watched. I am really bad at keeping this segment up to date, but I try.
