Myung Wol the Spy drama(2011), & That Winter, the wind blows(2013) )

Myung Wol the Spy
I can only say one thing.This drama totally does not worth your time to watch. Although the first episode is quite promising but the next one up to the end is a total mess.Inability to show a good chemistry, good acting and most of all poor plot/storyline are very obvious.I can't quite catch what the writer of this drama tried to pull to make the audience interested to follow it til the end.
It revolved around a clumsy spy and also an army member of North Korea Han Myung Wol, to help her colleague to retrieve the four joints ancients book and kidnap Halyu star Kang Woo.

 Myung Wol then fell in love out of her curiosity during her mission towards Kang Woo. There was also a love triangle or rather nonreciprocal love from the side characters as the typical mainstream of Korean drama. Anyway, all I need to describe is everything felt wrong all over. 

If you want to watch this type of drama/spy thing, then I recommend other drama instead, such as Iris or Sweet spy. Those are better than this one.

That Winter, the Wind Blows
This drama was quite good and memorable for me. I like everything in this drama starting from the casts, the story, the background views and chemistry.

 It was about a gambler who was abandoned by his mother in the young age, Oh Soo, who has similar name with a brother of a blind orphan girl Oh Young, who inherit a large corporation from recently deceased father. 

Their destinies came across with each other based on guilt and need. They finally depended on themselves to survive the situation which rather getting more difficult.

The drama was another interpretation of Japanese drama Ai nante irane yo, natsu (TBS / 2002). I kind of wondering, should I watch the Japanese version as well.For sure it will be different due to cultural and mainstream of the country.

It is 8.5 out of 10 for my personal rating as a recommended or watchable drama.
