Allo! I come to you, one week later and one year older (I recently celebrated a birthday) but anyways so I am like maybe one of like four kdrama fans left on this earth who are still very into Yoon Eun Hye. Call it nostalgia because she was the lead of the very first kdrama that I watched or call it a true appreciation of a kissing goddess, but I love that bitch. My good sis was such a liar though fam…. Like she said that she was coming back from 2016 and I waited and waited but finally, FINALLY, she will be back in a new drama called ‘Love Alert’ airing on MBN which Viki has gotten the rights to. I have been keeping a keen eye on the development of this drama for a while because I was still extremely skeptical of whether or not Yoon Eun Hye would indeed be making her kdrama comeback. I wasn’t quite familiar with the network, MBN, and ended up doing some research on them……. very underwhelmed by the products that I have seen attached to their name.. However, I do believe she made a good choice in choosing a cable network and I am actually really glad that she turned down that robot one that she was rumored to have been reviewing because robot dramas are usually a hit or miss and more times than not it’s the latter. ‘Love Alert’ was definitely the more appealing drama, a certified romantic-comedy with everyone’s favorite trope: ‘a fake relationship becoming real’. We have seen Yoon Eun Hye in a similar role before and even though I haven’t seen anything with her male lead, I read that this was a pairing that was destined to happen as he was supposed to be the male lead of ‘Coffee Prince’ which I owe my forever ship of Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye to! Yes, I know I am delusional, no I do not care. So basically what I’m saying is that I am giving this my views regardless because I miss her so fucking much! In honor of her return, Wednesday October 31st, 2018.. I present to you my definite ranking Yoon Eun Hye’s dramas and movies.
9. Na Mi Rae – Marry Him If You Dare
The drama was boring. Half of it didn’t make any sense. I was physically ill as I tried to finish this drama for Yoon Eun Hye. How dare you cast kiss queen and have no kissing but call yourself a romantic comedy? Get the fuck out of my face. Mi Rae was very.. uhmm.. plain? She was what I imagine that vanilla ice cream would be if it were a person.
8. Lee Ji Hyun – The Vineyard Man
I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t watch this drama. It probably could be better than the productions listed below, BUT I do know it isn’t any worse that the one listed above because I actually saw a picture that looked like they kissed and that’s already beating out Marry Him If You Dare.
7. Kang Hye Na – My Fair Lady
The drama itself was very difficult for me to get through because I do not like either male leads and as such could never actively root for any romance. Her acting did seem a bit immature and OTT here, but I theorize it to being the way the character was written. However, this definitely made me have a desire of seeing Yoon Eun Hye as a bratty character, perhaps with a better storyline and attractive male leads.
6. Han Min Joo – Legend of Seven Cutter
I enjoyed this movie for what it was and that is it. I do think Yoon Eun Hye has a certain charm when she plays a less than acutely girly character, however not much dynamic or range where this role was concerned. Still, it was enjoyable.
5. Lee Yoo Min – My Black Mini Dress/Little Black Dress
Ah! This was actually a really good movie because it contained a few other actresses that I found extremely likeable. I quite enjoyed the role she played here, it was something that someone in their mid 20s could enjoy.
4. Lee Soo Yeon/Zoey Lou – I Miss You
A melodrama role that had me extremely skeptical. The drama itself is actually pretty good. I’m just not a fan of Park Yoochun which probably explained why I felt the chemistry to be a little lacking. Overall she did a great job at portraying Zoey’s emotions and this was a role that showed a growth in her acting. It was such a shame she went downhill by choosing Marry Him If You Dare after …. Oh also she looked bomb as fuckkk!
3. Gong Ah Jung – Lie To Me
For the most part I genuinely enjoy this drama minus episodes 13 to 16 which were frankly just a waste of time. She had really good chemistry with her lead and the cocoa cola kiss was AMAZING!!! I definitely have a high rewatch factor for this one cause it’s Yoon Eun Hye doing what she knows best, having perfect comedic timing!
2. Shin Chae Kyung – Goong
This is another with an insanely high rewatch value! I am literally rewatching it as I write this post. The chemistry between her and Ju Ji Hoon was really good. Yes, it doesn’t really have the best acting, but it’s still better than most. The only unfortunate thing of this drama is how ridiculously long it is and how it kinda wouldn’t be a drama that could be dropped into today’s modern society. Overall though, Shin Chae Kyung was a pleasantly adorable character and fresh faced Yoon Eun Hye did what she came to do!
1. Go Eun Chan – Coffee Prince
OF COURSE THIS IS NUMBER ONE. THE BEST OF THE BEST. CREME DE LA CREME. I DESERVE A REUNION WITH HER AND GONG YOO BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW IF THE CHEMISTRY IS STILL THERE! There is nothing I can say about this drama that millions haven’t said before me. It’s really a staple in Korean drama and you’re a weak ass wack ass dumb ass bitch if you haven’t watched it as yet. This drama made Korea gay and that’s the true tea! Give me a Yoo/Yeh drama, movie, CF, variety appearance… anything really. I even took the win when they were both in the same magazine! I will take ANYTHING.
Well that’s it! If you want to check out the teaser for ‘Love Alert’:
And yes, I WILL be recapping it!
