My Thoughts : The Master’s Sun

 

Plot

Several years ago Kong-Sil (Kong Hyo-Jin) was involved in an accident. Since that incident, Kong-Sil is able to see and hear ghosts. She’s also terrified of the ghosts that appear constantly around her. Because of this, she’s unable to live a normal life. Kong-Sil lives in a rooftop room at an extended stay inn. She makes a living by doing odd jobs at the inn, including cleaning.

Meanwhile Joong-Won (So Ji-Sub) is the president of an extravagant shopping mall named Kingdom. He is also arrogant and calculative. Everything relates to him in terms of money.

One raining evening, Kong-Sil goes to room 404 to clean, but she sees another ghosts. She freaks out and runs up to her rooftop room. The ghost, who looks like an old woman, appears right next to her again. Kong-Sil then does the old woman ghost a favor and goes to her home. She hands the ghost’s son a bankbook with more than 10,000 dollars in the account.

Joong-Won sits face to face with a man who owns land that he needs to build a golf course. The man tells Joong-Won that his deceased wife does not want him to sell the land. Joong-Won doesn’t believe in ghosts and ignores him. He pulls out a contract which the man’s children already signed. Joong-Won is able to get the man’s signature.

On his way back from that meeting, Joong-Won is driven by his assistant (Choi Jung-Woo). The driver then sees a woman thumbing for a ride. Joong-Won tells his driver to ignore the woman, but a light suddenly shines on them and the car stops. At this time, Kong-Sil hops into the car and thanks them for picking her up. Kong-Sil unintentionally touches Joong-Won and feels something unusual. Later, the car pulls over at a highway rest stop. While walking back to the car, Joong-Won sees Kong-Sil talking to someone, but there isn’t anyone else there. Thinking she might be crazy, Joong-Won turns around, but Kong-Sil grabs his arm. She discovers that whenever she touches him, the ghosts around her disappear.

Back at her rooftop room, Kong-Sil is terrified by the ghosts around her as usual. She thinks back to Joong-Won and how the ghosts disappeared when she touched him. Kong-Sil decides to go Kingdom shopping mall to meet Joong-Won again.

 

Personal View :

After I Hear Your Voice, I got hooked again by Korean drama. Its The Master’s Sun. Yes Im hooked from day 1 up to the very end.

A horror, romantic, comedy drama. What can you ask for? For a KDrama addict like me, I can guarantee you 100% that this won’t disappoint you. This is not like other dramas I’ve seen. The twist is really great and it has an element of excitement as each episodes you were craving for the next. Every episode leaves you crying or laughing.

The plot itself already hooked me. Despite  the fact that I hate ghost concept, but hell the characters got into me. Almost each episodes has a different ghost stories. But this isn’t all about ghost. Like I’ve said, not a sweetie cutie romance but an interesting love story going on. Both lead actors are fun to watch.

 

Also Kang Woo ang Yi-Ryeong.

 

(What will I expect, it’s So Ji Sub and Seo In Guk)

 

Also the Aunt and VP relationship is real funny.

 

So Ji Sub and Gon HyoJin are the best pairing! Their chemistry is overflowing.

GHJ,  proved again how amazing and excellent actress she is. I must say she is one of the few versatile actresses that I like.

Not to exaggerate, but seriously this drama is simply amazing. The actors did a great job portraying their roles. Interesting characters bundled with a great OST.

My Thoughts : Monstar 몬스타

Country : South-Korea
Episodes : drama in 12 episodes
Genre: music, school, romance

Synopsis: Yoon Seol Chan is Korean idol from band Man in Black. His cynical and hot tempered personality has gotten him too much negative publicity, which makes his agency to send him back to high school to improve his social skills. To the same school arrives Min Se Yi – unusual girl who has lived last 5 years in New Zealand. Through unwanted trouble they end up with 5 classmates in a mess where they must start their own band to save their reputation.

PERSONAL VIEW

I wouldn’t exactly say that Monstar has an original plot. The plot revolves around a group of students at a high school. They all have different backgrounds, but they have two major things in common: they enjoy music and also have distressing background stories. The set up is very similar to other high school themed dramas, such as God of Study, Dream High, and School 2013.

One of the unique features of Monstar is the musical type format. I loved the music,  the different story lines and how music was going to bring these seven kids together. Monstar is a teen drama, which really caught my attention. I love the high school type dramas with romance! Now getting into the plot, Se-Yi is a transfer student who encounters Seol-Chan while he was filming in her new school.

The drama, while not the best of the bunch right now, was definitely gripping in its own way. However, the main critique I would point is how short it was. I would have loved it to have at least been 16 episodes. The characters are just so-so. It wasn’t fantastic and wasn’t horrible either.
