we all have seasons where we can't seem to find anything to watch and we wish we could find something. well, here's your chance to recommend a drama or movie that you really liked.

 

here's the format:

Annoying bits you might need to ignore:

Overall grade:

 

since we watch dramas in many languages, you can include dramas other than kdramas as long as there are subs. don't worry about your english or writing an essay. even a short, sweet recommendation will do.

 

we hope this can be a library that people can check out any time and keep adding.

Ha ha ha... Yes dear, I understand your frustration! :D The series is not really for light hearts as it has extra dark scenes in the first half! But the horror elements are less in the second half & the plot is more likely a supernatural thriller! Our dear @triplem chingu also had the same problem over this series! She is also a huge fan of Choi Daniel but she just skipped this series for the same reason you have!

 

But the series is extremely popular among international fans for the unspoken love between the leads! :heart: They have 4 beautiful hugs & that's all!!! NOT A SINGLE KISS! I just totally got addicted to this series in last year! Not just me, the whole world was crazy for them actually! So if you want a horror-romance, then this is the perfect choice (unless you are a chicken, of course) :D!!!!! Ha ha ha! 

 

This is my fav hug of them... Who are you to ask me if I am alright..???! :( Just a warm touch & eye gazes on each other! Enjoy, dear! :wub: Feel the love...

Name: Siyah Beyaz Ask

Summary: the impossible love story between a doctor and the right hand of a mafia boss. they end up getting married under forced circumstances. her entrance in his life forces him to examine himself, his relationships with his estranged family and discover the truth behind a painful loss.

Watch when you are in the mood for: intense family drama makjang with birth secret and crackling romance. theme of whether a person can turn around their life and heal the wounds of their past. what does it mean to be righteous? a romance where the couple love as much as they argue intensely. siblings fight like crazy but love each other deeply. interesting side character romances and some really complex characters.

Visual factor: everything is brightly lit even though the mood is intense, crackling, and sometimes a little sad. loved that PD used a musical score and actors expression to set the mood rather than choosing to do dark, bad lighting. super! and the male lead! waaaaah!!! not only good looking but so much emotion just through his expressions.  :wub:

Emotional moments that you liked: oodles of chemistry between the main leads, great scenes between the siblings especially the brothers.

Annoying bits you might need to ignore: there were a few annoying characters but that is what the fast forward button is for! hahahhaha. this was my first turkish dizi and I almost gave up because of the length of each episode. instead of trying to watch in one go, I watched a little each day over a month like a daily. so if you can pace yourself, then this is a good watch

Overall grade: B+ or 8/10

@Ameera Ali since you liked my blog :wub:

 

I always thought that most Korean actors are shallow and depend on their looks, but this drama upset my preconceptions. It is not a romantic drama at all but the moments between son and mother are so touching and the actor's talent and depth make it worth watching

bwahahaha... LOL. :joy: this only happens in weekend and daily dramas where there's tons of characters and so main leads actually are sometimes lame and are so so boring compared to the other characters.  in mini series, if this happens, ratings would tank. hahahahah...
