30 Day Kdrama Challenge: Day 12

Day 12: Your Favorite Story

Arang and the Magistrate had a really amazing story. The romance was electric, the mystery was thrilling, there were also funny parts and scary parts. From the beginning all the way to the final episode, it was a great story. As Kdrama fans, we all know that a drama can be really solid and then have a shit ending. Arang's ending was hopeful, romantic, and unusual. Also, the supernatural elements were done very well and didn't become cheesy. Even though this is a sageuk drama, I was never bored.

Heartless City (Cruel City) Final Episode 20 Review

Nam Gyu Ri as Han Soo Min and Jung Kyung Ho as Jung Shi Hyun
I'm going to call this as the best Korean drama of 2013 so far. I was getting a bit worried because there were no dramas that were jumping out at me as REALLY great this year. Some were good, some were OK, and others were lame. Heartless City (Cruel City) changed the scene. It had a dirty side to it that is missing from many melodramatic Korean dramas. Sometimes when they try to be dark, it just comes off as boring or, worse yet, cheesy. Watch Heartless City free and subtitles on DramaFever

Day 11: Your Favorite Dialogue

Seo In Guk as Yoon Yoon Jae and Jung Eun Ji as Sung Shi Won
OK, I'm glad this is the last day for lines/dialogue because I'm not good at remembering quotes from shows especially when I'm reading and not hearing it. Anyway, basically all of Reply 1997 is my favorite dialogue. The comedic scenes were quick and smart while the dramatic scenes were emotional and sincere. This drama had a realistic aspect to the characters, story, and script that made it special. Definitely one of my favorite dramas of 2012. Watch Reply 1997 subtitled and free on DramaFever.

30 Day Kdrama Challenge: Day 10

Day 10: Your Favorite Line/s by a Female Third Wheel

Lee Yoo Bi as Park Chung Jo 
Generally I hate the third wheel female characters in Kdramas. They are often selfish, jealous, depressing, or insane. I usually want them to just go away and leave my ship alone. Rarely, though, a third wheel female will come along who is reasonable, strong-willed, and understanding of the main couple's affection. Park Chung Jo played by Lee Yoo Bi in Gu Family Book is the latter kind of third wheel. She went through hell. She lost most of her family, was forced to become a gisaeng, and had to sleep with the evil bastard that killed her parents. She persevered, though, and even had the decency to step out of the way of Kang Chi and Yeo Wool's relationship. My favorite quote by Chung Jo from the final episode of Gu Family Book: 
"The first love helps one grow, and the last love completes the person."

Where to Watch Asian Dramas Online

Sadly, the video hosting site exists no longer. It was a great place to find thousands of dramas, movies, variety shows, etc. However, there are other sites out there where you can watch your Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese and other Asian dramas with subtitles and raw for free or paid. Here is a list of links to some drama sites to watch online or to download dramas. I personally use the first three sites most frequently.
UPDATE!!!! Dramacrazy is back! It has moved to
