Hi all, my name is Hilda and I am a huge kdrama fan, I am responsible for covering news in relation to Kdramas on jazminemedia.com~ My all time fav kdramas are: My Mister, Hotel Del Luna and Kill Me, Heal Me.


  1. I am watching and I like it. I can’t explain domestic ratings, maybe I shouldn’t even try because some of the dramas who had high ratings seemed mediocre to me. I am sure Imitation will do good with the international audience. I also liked the webtoon. I am not a fan of Jung Ji So acting though. How hard it is to play a 20-year old girl in love? But she seems wooden to me. Apart from that it is very watchable and makes you sympathise with the characters. And Jun is really good.

  2. This really sucks because I am a huge Ateez fan. But the show doesn’t seem interested in capitalizing on its star power at all, and promotion seems nonexistent. Hope this can still boosts everyone’s careers who are involved.
