I just finished watching Korean Drama Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, which aired from February to April of 2017. The drama starred Park Bo Young as the titular Do Bong Soon, Park Hyung Shik as Ahn Min Hyuk, her prince charming, and In Gook Doo, her first love.

The drama was about strong woman Do Bong Soon, who comes from a long line of strong women, who have spent generations using their strength for good. Why? Because if they use their strength for personal gain or if they hurt an innocent, they will end up losing that strength. These powers are passed down from mother to daughter only.

Do Bong Soon has spent her entire life hiding her powers, and living a half life because of her unique abilities. This is the story of how she learns to use her powers for good, or it was meant to be. Continue reading

I just finished watching Japanese drama Seisei Suruhodo Aishteru, which aired from July 12, 2016 to September 20, 2016. The drama starred Takei Emi as our heroine, Kurihara Mia, who is a career woman working for Tiffany & Co. It starred Takizawa Hideaki as Miyoshi Kairi, our hero and a married man. Kinami Haruka played Kairi’s wife, Yuka. And Nakamura Aoi played Miyazawa Rio, the second male lead who was hopelessly in love with Mia.

Takahashi Mitsuomi played Youta, Mia’s stalker ex-boyfriend. Mizusawa Erena played Akari, one of Mia’s best friends/roommates. And Triendl Reina played Chiaki, the other best friend/roommate. Finally, Nakamura Hayato played Kuno Atsushi, the man that comes between Akari and Chiaki and is also Kairi’s best friend.

The drama was a story of adultery, and it contained characters that were all pretty much either hateful, unlikable or contradictory in turns throughout the story. I think the only one that I did not actively dislike was Miyoshi Kairi, but even then I found myself questioning his motives quite often. If one of your hot button issues is adultery, I recommend staying far, far away from this drama.
