Oh My Venus (2015)
A lot of people who are watching Oh My Venus aren't enjoying it very much because the only thing original compared to other romantic comedies is the story for the main female lead to lose weight. Everything else is cliche and unoriginal, however, I can't help finding myself enjoying this drama. It's cute and quite sweet. Plus, the main male lead is hot as anything.

Currently Watching: The Village: Achiara's Secret

The Village: Achiara's Secret

Warning: this article contains spoilers and if you have not watched the first six episodes of this drama, you may want to stop reading now.

Firstly, this is my first article that I have done so I apologise in advance if my writing style is not to your taste. Anyway, the main reason I started watching The Village: Achiara's Secret is because of Yook Sung Jae. I have been a fan of his since his debut in 2012 with the rest of his group, BTOB. And for those who have watched his previous dramas will know that he has broken the idols-can't-act stereotype. However, this drama itself did interest me as well because I'm a sucker for anything horror or thriller themed. I believe that thriller dramas bring out the best in actors and I just love the suspense as well.
