[Korean Drama Review] Are You Human, Too?

Nam Shin (Seo Kang-Joon) is a son from a family who runs a large company. After an unexpected accident, he falls into a coma. His mother Oh Ro-Ra (Kim Sung-Ryoung) is an authority on brain science and artificial intelligence. She creates an android named Nam Shin III which looks like just like her son Nam Shin. The android pretends to be Nam Shin and he has a bodyguard So-Bong (Kong Seung-Yeon).

I had just completed watching this Korean drama - Are You Human, Too?

Personally, the story itself was refreshing and interesting on its own. It had a smart plot which was captivating and kept me in great suspense. The progression of each episode got better with the secret agenda among the casts, which made this already good drama a more convincing one. Not to forget, the many touching, intense and thrilling moments which hightened the show.

This drama revolved around temptations and being revengeful. On the other hand, it educated viewers to let go of grudges and learn to forgive, in order to feel peace and happy. It reminded me about the importance of kinship and also to cherish the people around me. Most importantly, not to boast but be humble. 

This series reminded me of the show - W – Two Worlds . If you enjoy that show, you may wish to give this drama a try! Kudos to Seo Kang-joon acting capabilities. A versatile actor indeed! Not to leave out, the many other casts as well. Good job!

I would definitely view robots differently after wacthing this!

[Singapore-Malaysia Drama Review] Gifted 天之骄子

Two very different characters who grew up in two distinctly diverse environment, Guan Yao Zu (Elvin Ng) and Li Xiao Yi (Zhang Yao Dong) were once child prodigies. They had to hide their talent due to circumstantial reasons, but their paths crossed when a mysterious rich man engages them to locate his missing son. Will they work together to solve the mystery or will they pit their wits against each other to emerge as the final victor?

Just finished watching this channel 8 series - Gifted 天之骄子 on toggle. Before the show even begin, mediacorp heavily publicised this Singapore-Malaysia production. If you know me well enough, I'm always a fan of such genre. 

Personally, I felt that the drama had a smart plot which keep me in great suspense. The progression in each episodes led me to ponder and followed them closely. There were definitely unexpected twist to its plot; though certain scenes may still appear predictable to me. The cases are nicely penned from the start till the finale which was commendable. The many touching, intense and thrilling moments certainly hightened the show. It strongly reminded me the importance of kinship. 

The finale reminded of the show - Love Me, If You Dare 他來了,請閉眼. If you enjoy - Gifted 天之骄子, you may wish to give the recommended drama a try! Kudos to Zhang Yao Dong acting capabilities once again. A versatile actor indeed! Not to leave out, the many other casts as well. Good job!
