K-Dramas I’m Currently Watching

Wok of Love: This is of course a must, since my boyfriend, Junho stars as the main lead hehe. To be honest, if not because of Junho, I might not continue watching this drama, as the direction, editing and storyline are all over the place. The way it’s being brought to the screen is not so interesting, making it quite boring for me.

Such a waste for Junho to be starring in such a drama, I pity him. But oh well, at least I can see he is having lots of fun with the casts ^^ I just want my boy to be happy hihi.

What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim: OK, I must say this drama is brilliant! Though it’s a cliche chaebol and ordinary-girl love + 2 ‘enemies’ fighting over a girl story, they make it in a fun way. And since it’s a story we know won’t happen in real life, I like how they brought it to us being all ridiculous and sometimes exaggerated. All the cute and comical sound effects that follow their actions are somehow entertaining for me, haha.

Park Seo Joon character as the narcissistic Lee Young Joon is super cute too, of course, lol. I very much enjoy each time he admire himself to the extend that you feel like puking or at least palming your face, haha. His super confident is just too entertaining. Park Min Young is also so super cuteee. I enjoy this drama so much, and must say, I prefer it way more than Wok of Love (sorry Junho :P)

My Thoughts on Wok of Love (up until ep. 14)

We get it that all those anger and screaming might come from the frustration – betrayal of his ex-wife, close colleagues who he thought were his close friends. But for how long? Does the writer want a hate club for Poong or something? So i don’t understand why they still wanna keep that jerk character on Poong.

Actually Poong is so pitiful & lonely. He doesn’t have anyone to talk or share his feeling. I think being in that situation doesn’t help him to be less confused either :(

To be honest, i don’t know where this drama story line is going. Like on episode 14, suddenly another kkangpae (gangster) taking the whole 15 to 20 minutes of air time.

I personally think they should have developed his friendship with the minions first at least? Where that will teach him there are nice people despite how they look like. I was expecting he would already be teaching and cooking together with them by now.

Andddd he said he wanted revenge. But what’s his plan? So far he just waits inside the restaurant for customers. I see no marketing, no advertisement. Seriously? I hope the writer-nim and PD-nim will do better in coming episodes. PLEASE.

[ENG Translation] Introducing Seo Poong character

Trans: Seo-Poong (31, male)
“Nothing is impossible with my wok”

“Hungry Wok’s master Poong”. “Incarnation of wok”.

Living together with his wok, in belief that cooking must be served at it’s most delicious moment, that’s not late, not overcooked, not cold.

Though he sustained the share of grief by his pride and talent, he fell from Korea’s best hotel Chinese restaurant “Hwaryeong-jeom-jeong” star chef, to sinking neighbourhood chinese kitchen “Hungry-wok”.

He was demoted from kitchen that he dedicated himself to for 10 years, even his beloved fiancé of 16 years left him.

The man’s heart caught flame in fire.

It’s even scarier than kitchen highest temperature of 1980 degrees.

Every moment, I’m the one living in the world of nerve-racking battle. Even messing with the man’s pride should have a limit.

Through my wok, stepping all under my way, I will not miss getting everything back.


Trans: This thing is called Cantonese wok.
The handles on both sides is called ‘gwi’ (ears).
You hold it here and do the cooking.
Usually the Chinese restaurant frying pan that we know is that one!
It’s the one with one handle attached.
It’s somewhat in a form like this.
But the difference is big when it has and not.
It hurts my wrist, even now the wrist has been a little pumping.
It requires too much strength.
But because Seo-Poong is using the both sides of wok all well.
First of all, I’m mastering from Cantonese wok.
Seo-Poong’s trademark is this Cantonese wok.


Trans: Please look forward to ‘yosaeknam’ (means sexy guy who’s good in cooking) who’ll pour the oil to your empty heart!

Trans: My character is called Seo-Poong.
He’s in charge of being Sous Chef at Hwaryong-jeong-jeom (HJJ). At one moment, he fell into the bottomless pit from the position. To take revenge on HJJ, he gets hired at ‘Hungry frying pan’ right across the street, and dreams to revenge hard.
