Once in a while, you witness a beautiful love story that you want to tell everyone about it because you want to share that stunning experience with them. That’s the exact feeling I had when I was watching Queen For Seven Days. It brought me to the sweetest highs and despondent lows as the story lured me in a web of doubts, betrayals and love.
Queen For Seven Days pushed me to the limit of my tears. I usually avert melodramas, but KBS’ historical offering has this interesting visage that draws you in as a viewer at the moment you meet the lead characters. Staged in traditional background, it narrates a breathtaking chronicle of a woman, who relies on love but falters on trusting that love which eventually leads to her misfortunes.
I smiled, melted, wailed, begged and a lot more on my drama journey in Queen For Seven Days. When you think of those tragic love stories, you will remember them only as a sad tale. But not in this drama. While you grieve with the love couple who are forced to love each other from afar, you will accept that true love is kept in the heart with the best memories you have with someone, even if you cannot have future moments together. This drama, though not achieving a happy ending fully, is still a satisfying romantic tale, which will appeal to people that knows love waits, love goes on, and love endures.

July 4th Week 2017
Two dramas kick off this week as one will end over the weekend. I ended up missing to write my reviews for Ruler and My Sassy Girl. I will move them to join Defendant, Whisper and Chief Kim in the parking lot of my reviews-to-do. Hopefully if time allows me I can really get to write a full review. Next week will welcome Manhole and Save Me for our weekly roster so Yay! Dear life, when will I have time for you seriously? Seven Day Queen will hit the finale next week so I will slate it for a marathon.
Bride of the Watergod (TVN) Ep 7&8
I want to fall in love both on the romance and mythology but the story is really distracted to a fault. The vague romantic notion by now should have gone to a thorough understanding for the lead couple, instead they throw in another conflict. I mean we have not solved yet the missing powers of Habaek. He is in a limbo on his road to being a King task. So why throw another punch? sigh
The King Loves (MBC) Ep 5-8
I’m still addicted to the cinematography and Im Si Wan. I’m not expecting a lot from Yoo Na just a little less scenes which I know is impossible. I’m cheering for our mudblood Silla prince to whatever will make him happy.
Falsify (SBS) Ep 1-4 “Premiere Week”
Chief Kim is back in a serious face. I like happy-go-lucky Nam Goong Min and his vein-popping villain face. So I don’t have any doubt that this drama will drain me even if it’s another legal drama for SBS with the same corruption conspiracy plot on the side. I will trust my fondness towards anything journalistic in honor of my failed dreams so I’m going to give a trial period for this drama.
Reunited Worlds (SBS) Ep 5-8
There is something thought-provoking on this drama. And no, it’s not because I have a hangover with Circle still. It is the character interaction that makes me like this drama still. Wven with a probable sad ending, I am willing to take the risk just like how I watch The Best Hit each week when it was airing.
Criminal Minds (TVN) Ep 1&2 “Premiere”
The Korean adaptation will require a lot of convincing for me to appreciate their take of my favorite police procedural drama ever. They know very well how to do it, and that is by showing Lee Jun Ki oppa all intense and handsome on the screen. hahaha I like the opening salvo, but I’m expecting them to find something unique that will make the remake a lot like the original yet with a little something of their own.
Secret Forest (TVN) Finale Week
Review Coming Up! If you haven’t hit on this drama yet, it’s about time you do.
This is abbyinhallyuland reporting how KDramas has drowned me each week. *grin
