Preferred scene: Healthcare facility Playlist 2

In this fave scene of mine from episode 8, I was pleasantly surprised to see Ro-sa (Kim Hae-sook) getting in excess of the keyboards. She changed Seok-hyung (Yoo Dae-myung) who experienced rushed to the hospital just after getting an emergency contact. Everybody is so joyful and happy after enjoying Is It Still Beautiful (여전히 아름다운지) by Kim Yeon-woo (김연우). Happy to see her again to her cheerful self just after staying so down owing to her wellbeing situation. Humorous how I was smiling and crying at the similar time all in the course of this scene.

Beloved locale: Seongju Hangae Village

Also known as Dam-yi and Ji-un’s love nest, Nokungak, in The King’s Affection.



Preferred scene: Our Beloved Summer months at Jaha Super

If all had gone as prepared, I would have composed up a scene from Dali and Cocky Prince. But I hadn’t managed to pinpoint a preferred scene as the full drama was just that drama for me this year. Then came together close-of-year collection Our Beloved Summer months (indeed, I am cheating a tiny little bit time-sensible) and this super sweet flashback scene in episode 3, in which Kook Yeon-soo (Kim Da-mi) surprises Choi Woong (Choi Woo-shik) with a shower of cherry flower petals in entrance of Jaha Super. And he recollects: “She confirmed this aspect of herself only to me. So I couldn’t help but adore her.”

Beloved place: Munheon Seowon

Is not the blend of crêpe myrtle trees and a seowon just to die for? Since its very first sighting in episode 1 of The King’s Affection, Munheon Seowon has produced me pretty much travel the most this yr, and it’s even on my true-existence travel record. I assume I can effortlessly say that I’ve admired these trees’ flowers as substantially as the Crown Prince did on her stroll by the palace grounds in episode 5, albeit possessing my screen in-involving the trees and me.



Favored scene: Vincenzo at Cheonggye Plaza

2021 was the yr that introduced us to Vincenzo: a Korean-born, Italy-raised ‘corn salad’ extraordinaire  who’s just as deadly as his superior seems. It was also via him that the or else sleepy ‘Geumga Plaza’ grew to become the heart of notice, as it lived up to its title as the home of gold. Amongst all the shenanigans that took position here (who could ignore the Liberty Major The Persons tableau scene in episode 7?), this episode 17 scene was most likely the most legendary for me. Observing the #GeumgaCassanoFam collectively strut down the open up square in a solitary, unified line produced me so very pleased of how considerably they’d all arrive. That, and the shades of Mafia Black appeared superb on each and every of them.

Beloved Place: Daechung Park – Yeonnam

I like discovering destinations with appealing again stories or interesting factoids. Prior to this, there was the ‘rising from the ashes’ story of the former Eumseong Joongang Sacred Heart Health-related Center, of how it had bounced back again after a administration adjust, only to face difficulties once more several years later and Geochang Itae Sarangbawi (aka the ‘love rock’), with its fantastical legend about a doctor’s supernatural face.

Following looking at the KBS Drama Particular Betwin (which I also hugely endorse), I did a search for the ‘brick building cafe’ observed in it and managed to monitor down the Yeonnam branch of Daechung Park. Though reading through up on the cafe’s branding rationale, this specific sentence stopped me in my tracks: “We uncovered that in old times of Asia, tigers applied to be called ‘daechung’… indicating ‘big bug’.” …say what now? This led me on an hour-very long research to obtain out a lot more, and what a (linguistic/historical) eye-opener it finished up staying – 1 that has caught with me until now. Who understood that a cafe that I’d noticed in a one particular-episode drama would conclude up serving me a cultural lesson? Click on the listing hyperlink to study about it!



Just after a year of looking at what seemed to be generally dramas involving dystopian societies, revenge, gratuitous violence and dark themes, I imagined I would conclusion my 2021 Roundup on a more light-hearted be aware.

Favored scene: Yumi’s Cells

I commenced viewing Yumi’s Cells with apprehension, not in the beginning being a lover of the animation, but I was received above. My favourite scene happened in episode 6 immediately after Yumi’s birthday meal when weak Woong (Ahn Bo-hyun), suffering from a poor response to the cream pasta, had to make an emergency dash to the rest room … We all know it’s likely to finish badly, and it did in a hilarious way! Koreans appreciate toilet jokes, and this one particular is epic 😂


Beloved area: Manhyujeong Pavilion

I’m a sucker for a wonderful period of time drama – attractive costumes, handsome heroes and picturesque historic locations. Manhyujeong Pavilion, a Joseon period setting up positioned in Andong, the cultural centre of South Korea, was featured in episode 4 of The King’s Passion. I can picture myself carrying a hanbok and standing on the bridge, or sitting down in silence in the residence looking through or thinking about the forest (or any topless idols that may possibly be washing in the stream!). This site is on my K-drama bucket record.


Many thanks when again to Chelle and sarahms for contributing! And you – for looking through and supporting, for your type words (they necessarily mean so significantly!), and for simply just sticking all-around.

Here’s wishing you and your cherished kinds a healthier, joyful 2022! May perhaps there be brighter times for us all in the yr to arrive.

Adore, Marion & Mich KDL ♥
