A continuation of my series before the year ends… Hopefully, I finish this year’s one on time…
As per usual, 2 different ratings, first is how much I liked it without regard to quality of plot, and the second is whether I would recommend it. Both are out of 10, with 10 being the most, and 1 being the least.

Who Are You – School 2015 (School 6) (7/10, 6/10)
High school drama with a mysterious twist. The young actresses and actors did really well, although there were some weak links… Overall, I enjoyed this charming drama, but wished for an ending that was a little different…
Sassy, Go Go / Cheer Up (7/10, 7/10)
Short, fun, cheerful high school drama, with some real life experiences that school children encounter nowadays…
The above 2 high school dramas differed in genre and feel. The first is a little more fantastical-ish, with unknown twins and amnesia. While the second is more real-ish, with stress and self harm.
Oh My Venus (6/10, 6/10)
An entertaining romantic comedy with totally adorable characters.
Fri & Sat 21:00
The Producers (5/10, 6/10)
Set in the background of the entertainment industry, this was a new drama format, with many cameos from real-life entertainers and actors. I didn’t really care for the show…
Spy (4/10, 4/10)
Had the potential to be good, but was quite the disappointment. The spy stuffs were not written well and had many many loopholes, I thought the actors and story premise were quite wasted.
Mon & Tue 21:55
Heard It Through The Grapevine (7/10, 8/10)
A black comedy, where the son of a rich family impregnates his girlfriend, and her survival of their high expectations. This was captivating and had its light moments. I thought it long at times, but quite enjoyed it. One of the quality dramas of the year.
High Society (5/10, 5/10)
A romance between the rich and the working class, and the obstacles they overcome to be together. I didn’t care for this, and thought it quite bland.
Mrs Cop (7/10, 8/10)
Cop show with the head of the team being a lady, dealing with harsh criminals and tough cases. Solid story line with engaging cast. One of the best of the year.
Wed & Thu 21:55
Girl Who Sees Smells (6/10, 7/10)
I was pleasantly surprised by Shin Se Kyung. The story line was relatively well written. Not sure how you would feel about Park Yoo Chun now though…
Mask (7/10, 7/10)
Romance with a melodramatic twist. Interesting story line with captivating cast. I really enjoyed this.
Yong Pal (7/10, 5/10)
When this was first announced, I thought it would go in one particular direction, which I could see from the first few episodes, but then it veered into a totally different direction, and so… It could have been so much better, but sadly, didn’t deliver. It was fun to watch though…
Sat & Sun 21:50
The Time We Were Not In Love (5/10, 6/10)
A remake of the popular Taiwanese drama ‘In Time With You’. A bland remake. I enjoyed the original much more.
Mon & Tue 21:55
Hwajung (7/10, 6/10)
Long, historical drama. The plot was interesting, but not all actors could bring it, so sometimes it was quite jarring and fell flat. I did enjoyed it though, but could have been better.
Wed & Thu 21:55
Angry Mom (7/10, 8/10)
Enjoyed this drama, where mom tackled her daughter’s bullies hands on, and in the meantime discovers other conspiracies. Excellent cast with entertaining story. One of my favourites of the year.
Warm and Cozy (5/10, 6/10)
Romantic comedy where it had its enjoyable moments. I didn’t really like this, I thought the cast was wasted and the story could have been better.
She Was Pretty (6/10, 6/10)
Fun, romantic comedy. Sadly I wasn’t as drawn to this as compared to my sisters. They enjoyed this thoroughly, scheduling a re-watch once in a while…
Mon & Tue 23:00
Let’s Eat 2 (7/10, 7/10)
Romantic comedy with eating and eating and eating. Do not watch late at night or when there is no food in the house. Pleasant and entertaining, I liked it.
Fri & Sat 20:40
Ex-Girlfriend Club (6/10, 6/10)
Short romantic comedy with ex-girlfriends hi-jinks. It was fine, but forgettable.
Oh My Ghostess (8/10, 8/10)
Seeing ghosts could be scary, but if it brought you the love of your life, how would you deal with it… Loved the story and the comical cast. One of the best and one of my favourites of the year.
Twenty Again (8/10, 8/10)
Choi Ji Woo’s character rediscovering herself, in love and in life. Poignant story with a cast that delighted. One of the best and also one of my favourites of the year.
Fri & Sat 20:30
D-Day (6/10, 6/10)
Medical, natural disaster drama set in modern day Seoul. Thrilling but plots were repeated a few times…
Noble, My Love (6/10, 6/10)
Light and enjoyable watch. Short and sweet. It was quite good.
