Picks of the month: drama, song, book (May 2015)

It’s been a while (busy busy busy with my last exam session) but here I am with new recommendations for this month. When I have time I watch Hwajeong and Warm and Cozy. I don’t know why but I tried to watch Orange Marmalade too. BIG mistake! But it introduced me to the world of webtoons. I knew about them before but I prefer the standard books over this genre so I’ve never actually read one until now. Orange marmelade- the drama was so cheesy and childish (like a freaking tribute to Twilight) that I had to check out the source. I read a few chapters and I really have no idea why the drama turned this way. But the good news are that thanks to it I found another webtoon which was very interesting, a story with a touch of mystery, irony and realism.

I wasn’t going to watch Hwajeong, somehow I sensed that I won’t like it (maybe I’ve seen too many sageuks so nothing surprises me anymore) but one of my friends started it and liked it so much that I was convinced to try it too. Guess what: she dropped it after 6 episodes and I still struggle with it because it’s so damn ordinary with a frustrating and inconsequent writing.

So which one is the drama of the month? Warm and cozy! Sometimes the main male character is getting on my nerves buuut at the same time he manages to do the sweetest things ever. Lucky Jung Joo! Meanwhile the female second lead is a lost cause and I pray to see her gone as soon as possible. I also pray for more scenes with Geun Woo’s older brother and his love interest. Oh and add more with the odd mayor too. XD

You can watch it here or here.
