“Because Its My First Life” will air its first episode n October 9 at 9:30 p.m. KST.

Initial Impressions

I am a huge fan of Lee Min Ki.

I watched a lot of his movies; he does more movies than kdramas. He gives off a strange charming vibe, I like that.

Jung So Min is always adorable. She often picks less serious roles and focuses on romantic comedies, there is nothing wrong with that.

I like that the drama plot won’t focus on the two main leads alone, it’ll include 2 other couples with different problems. I think this adds a great value to the drama, instead of mere typical supporting characters, those characters are used to their full potential.

I am also a fan of Kim Min Suk who has been acting for a while but still seems to be stuck doing secondary roles…. Don’t get me wrong, I am excited about his appearance, but I think he’s worth more than that, don’t you guys agree?

He is talented, good looking and has been a couple of good dramas. He showcased his talent and yet he’s still playing minor roles that don’t give him the screen time he deserves.

Nevertheless, I am still excited about this drama. I will be releasing the recap and review of it next week. I can’t wait to find a new promising adorable drama.

Please don’t screw this up tvN!



“Black” is one of the most anticipated kdramas of OCN this year, back in July kdrama fans were pleased by the cast chosen for this drama.

“Black” tells the story of a detective who possessed by the Grim Reaper to be played by Song Seung Heon, and Ha Ram to be played by Go Ara who can see the shadows of death.
