Save Me is a Journey into the Human Psyche – Kdrama Review

When Sang Mi’s parents join a religious cult, it begins a game of cat and mouse between the young woman and a manipulative con man who wishes to steal her virtue.

It’s been a while since I’ve felt this way.  

That feeling where you are legitimately terrified for someone you are watching onscreen.  

A feeling that is often left out of modern cinema and tv shows – who favor spoon-feeding their audience while simultaneously dumbing down their IQs.

So, it’s been a good while since I’ve watched this series.  

I watched the final episode when it aired, and talked it over with my mom. I even hit up the forums as usual and discussed the episode with other fans online. However…I never wrote about it on my blog. 

Why? To be honest, I’m not exactly sure.

I knew Professor Yang didn’t do it.

A Crime Drama with STRONG Female Leads | LIVE | Kdrama Review

For the Hongil Division in Seoul, maintaining work-life balance isn’t easy. Thankfully, this Korean drama on Netflix seamlessly juggles an ensemble of characters problems in a way that doesn’t burn you out. This is a review of one of the best crime kdrama of 2018, LIVE!

I caught this one a few months back when it was trending on Netflix. Live, Laibeu or 라이브 is a 2018 South Korean Drama. It follows a squad of police officers who defend the crime-laden Hongil district while also maintaining personal lives.

I didn’t know what to expect when coming into this drama.  I wasn’t even sure if it was pronounced like “Saturday Night Live” or “We all live” live. Either way, it turned out to be a solid story in the vein of a recent office drama I watched.

More Than Just An Office Drama| Misaeng: Incomplete Life|Kdrama Review

This review contains slight plot spoilers. Enough to understand the context, but too few to ruin the entire series. Read on without fear, because I am determined to talk about this wonderful series with you.

A chase scene in Jordan. A young fashionable man wearing a suit. Two men in suits inquiring the whereabouts of a fugitive. A parkour sequence over the rooftops of a foreign land.

You would think that this was some sort of cop drama, no?

No, no no my friends. This is actually an office drama that starts at its end and takes you through a flashback for the entire series. Here, Jang Geu Rae was living his best life. But in order to understand the magnitude of his confidence and how we got here, we have to delve through his pain…sift through office politics, abuses of power, human rights violations and ever rampant misogyny. In the end, however – a strong message of hope.
