Genre: KDrama – Comedy, Romance
Episodes: 17
Rating Out of Five: 4.5

The main character is a girl named Go Eun Chan, who works several jobs to help her family make ends meet as her father passed away some years before. At first glance almost everyone mistakes her for a boy, which to begin with doesn’t really bother her but as the show progresses it starts to matter more and more to her. At the beginning of the show she is mistaken for a boy by this rich guy, Choi Hang Kyul, who thinks she staged a botched purse snatching of a lady friend of his to get money for scooter repairs. He ends up hiring her, thinking she is a boy, to be his gay lover to get out of possible arranged marriages and she goes along with it as she needs the money. When Han Kyul gets given the task of revitalizing a coffee shop that is completely derelict and, essentially out of business, he hires her again (still thinks she is a boy) to work in the coffee shop that will be run only by men, hence Coffee Prince.

Title: Ryusei no Kizuna
# of Episodes: Ten (Complete)
Genre: Suspense/Comedy
Lead Actor(s)/Actress: Ninomiya Kazunari, Nishikido Ryo, Toda Erika
Rating Out of Five: 5

Drama is about three siblings that have their parents murdered one night when they were little and the culprit is not caught and the statute of limitations is closing in.

They sneak out the night it happened to watch the shooting stars (after their parents told them they weren’t allowed), and when they get back home they find their parents dead. They grow up with the group decision “when we grow up and find him, lets kill him together”. Along the way they become ‘sagashi’, swindlers or con-artists, and much comedy ensues between the three siblings especially in the middle of a con.

It’s a very good story about growing up and through the hardship of finding your parents murdered and, ultimately, is getting revenge is good or bad, will it bring closure at all as it won’t bring back what was lost.

This is one of my favourite dramas, I just absolutely love it. There is so much to the story and the characters, and the actors that play them, just do a great job and work so well together. Everything just clicks! A must watch in my opinion.

Title: Ong Bak 3
Genre: Foreign (Thai), Action
Rating Out of Five: 3.5

This movie starts almost exactly where the second one left off, on a bit of a cliff hanger. The movie overall wasn’t that great. for like the first fifteen minutes, there is pretty much no talking whatsoever just lots of stuff happening and you’re to sure why it’s all important. The fighting in here was, of course, awesome but this movie has the least amount of fighting in it, it’s too bad the story wasn’t as good to make up for it. I understand why they needed to make this third one to finish up the series, but it was a little disappointing. Hopefully whatever Tony Jaa does next has, not only has super awesome fight scenes, but a decent story to go with it as well.
