My Girlfriend is a Gumiho has for a pretty long time been my favourite kdrama, thanks to it’s amazing mix of humour, angst, adorable moments of love and pretty damn amazing characters (thank you Hong sisters). But Queen In Hyun’s Man has come pretty damn close to beating MGiaG, actually I think MGiaG is no.2 for now. I started the drama when there it was already halfway through and managed to watch all 8 episodes in one sitting. TVN has been pretty consistent in churning out really good dramas (with gorgeous casts such as Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, hehehe) recently and let’s just say you will not be disappointed with their latest offering.
Let me try to get my thoughts down in coherent sentences that do not repeat themselves, because I swear I’m amazing at squee-ing at a kdrama but when it comes to explaining why, I can never do it. Queen In Hyun’s Man is one of the many time travelling dramas (Rooftop Prince being its closest comparison I guess) to hit kdrama land recently. I had pretty neutral feelings towards the cast, going into the drama, and now that I’m done, I’m officially in love with both Ji Hyunwoo and Yoo Inna. Not only is their chemistry amazing, they just managed to portray their emotions so perfectly. Yoo Inna’s crying scenes will simply break your heart. Plus the characters are kinda perfect together. We have the bookish scholar with the bubbly, not-so-bright actress who’s still lovable (got to love her reason for the creation of the neck tie). No cliched chaebol jerks or overly nice guy with the poor female lead, just a very normal couple who fell in love and unfortunately had to battle with the problems of being born in different eras 😀 The drama also actually addresses the theme of time travelling and the consequences of it, how changing the past actually affects the future and the characters’ memories yada yada.
I hoped that even made sense.
With that, I will go back to moping the end of yet another amazing drama and I urge everyone who has the chance of reading this (hahaha, what are the odds of people even reading my little rant) to WATCH THE SHOW, if you haven’t already started. It’s amazing ❤
