Raine’s 2011 Year-End Review!

by: Raine

Welcome to the end of another eventful K-drama year. The end of 2011 marks the end of my first full K-drama loving year. I watched ten 2011 dramas and I will give you my highly unbiased opinion. (Yes, those two words are inherently opposites. I know. I know.) Included in this review will be my favorite actors and actresses of this year because, well, it’s my blog and I CAN. Yes, you-know-who is most definitely included.

I’ve decided to refer as little as possible to the drama itself. Why? If they didn’t stick, then obviously they were not important enough in my k-drama universe. A good drama hits you hard in the moment and then stays with you. Some succeeded. Some epically failed.

I’m also not going to cover everything in each drama. Or else this would be a novel. However, if you absolutely want to hear what I thought about some aspect I miss, I’ll write about it. I ain’t saying no!

I’m going to rate the dramas on a scale of 1 to 10. I’ll be considering writing, camera work, directing, acting, and sheer entertainment value. Will I be biased by pretty faces? Probably. Not gonna lie. I’m a 20-something-year-old woman girl.

Second post in the Park Shi-hoo mini-series and I’m totally stoked! I must say that this post in particular was so much fun to write and put together.

Not only will I get more Shi-hoo in action (where he shines best), but I will get to feed my addiction. How can it get any better than that?
