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 think korean viewers are not ready to watch different genre like arthdal.. they love to watch light story, romcom and family oriented drama just loke hotel del luna which is a light ghost story.. The arthdal has the same fate with scarlet heart ryo . It did not patronize by korean viewers but international viewers patronize it just like arthdal it was also love and patronize by international viewers. Because of unique story and excellent acting of all actors . From the lead stars up to supporting stars..

    1. I am from indonesia. I love so much arthdal chronicle. Its a masterpiece. Plot of drama, excellent acting all actors. It was suprised me. Cant wait to watch part 3. I just wish arthdal chronicles will get many awards . One of the the best drama i have ever watched

  2. I watch it as shk support IU in this drama. I watch it from 1st episode and it really great and I keep waiting for the new episode. Great cast, plot and script. As cameo by Lee joon gi in episode 3 make it more exciting as he is one of my favourite Korea actor.

  3. I think Koreans r just attracted to the love and family feud dramas more than rare dramas like Arthdal …i have watched dramas from Jumong to Boys b4 flowers and lots and so far Arthdal Chronicles is ma best …acting …story…suspense …everything is on point

  4. Arthdal is the best koean drama that I ever watched so far. Not the usual rom com Korean drama that is so overly familiar. Even the acting surpasses of my expectation. Can compete internationally acclaimed movies worldwide. Kudos to everyone from production down the line. Can’t wait and very eager to watch the next part.

    1. I agree. Arthdal Chronicles is great. Internationally it will do well. The acting is phenomenal and the story is unique and very different from your standard kdrama! Looking forward to September.

    1. Yes yes I am also watching it it’s a wonderfull nice series,IU looking so gorgeous in this darama…..it’s already added in my favorite list………….. cannot wait for upcoming episodes ……………❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️IU you are something incredible watching your darama I like it as other 9.8k people like it ……… congratulations

  5. Arthdal Chronicles it’s just too much for Korean viewers. It’s like trying to make your non-kdrama-lover friends watch kdrama or listen to kpop. Getting out of your comfort zone sometimes could come with a feeling of forcing yourself to do it and with that you lose all your pleasure in enjoying it.
    I enjoy both dramas and hope for better results in opening new horizons for the Korean filmography industry.

  6. When I started watching Arthadal I was hooked. I did not think I was going to like it because I’m more into the romcom. This has been my favorite drama so far this year. I cannot wait for the third season to start.

  7. You don’t know how much I’m waiting for sept to come,I love arthdal chronicles, hotel del Luna is the sane with other Korean ghost movies I have seen but arthdal chronicles is different, has a lot of twist and so interesting

  8. I think Arthdal Chronicles is the ever best story… It grabs you in itself like Octopus…I love this drama so much than any other Kdrama..
