Drama: January 2022

I have been OBSESSED with these dramas. I can’t even count the amount of times I have rewatched these shows.

Cinderella and the Four Knights (Netflix/Viki)

As a high schooler, Eun Ha Won loses her mother in a tragic accident, and her father remarries. When her cruel stepmother moves in with them, she steals Ha Won’s college funds, leaving Ha Won forced to take on multiple part-time jobs to meet her college downpayment. One day, Ha Won meets an old man who sees her fiery disposition and her no-nonsense personality. Convinced that this is exactly what his three grandsons need, he persuades her to move into a mansion, where she will stay as the housekeeper, with three other young men who happen to be billionaire cousins.

There’s a middle cousin and lone wolf Kang Ji Woon, a rebel with a cause with a sad past, who might have shared a moment with Ha Won years ago.

Eldest cousin Kang Hyun Min, an arrogant playboy with a penchant for smooth-talking, and a money machine used to getting whatever he wants.

The youngest cousin Kang Seo Woo (from CNBLUE) is a top singer-songwriter, who is easily the most affectionate with Ha Won.

What sort of adventures can come out of living with three dashing, spoiled rich men, and who will Ha Won choose in the end?

Falling Into Your Smile (Viki)

In the ultra-competitive world of e-sports, the all-male ZGDX team is second to none. Armies of adoring female fans follow the team wherever it goes. But when one of the team’s star players suffers a hand injury, the tall, handsome, and notoriously hard-to-please ZGDX captain Lu Si Cheng (Xu Kai) will not be rushed into choosing a replacement.

The petite, lollipop-loving Tong Yao, meanwhile, is a budding amateur gamer – obsessed with honing her skills. Her abilities are exceptional, but she is of the firm belief that in the male-dominated world of pro gaming, love is a big no-no – even though her own boyfriend is a gamer. When the ZGDX team manager learns of her skills, he contacts her, thinking that recruiting her as the scene’s first female player will help score a major PR coup. She breaks up with her arrogant boyfriend, who scoffs at her dreams of becoming a pro. And Lu Si Cheng is dismissive of her initially, but eventually agrees to accept her as a trainee – a move that polarizes the team’s fanbase. But as they start to get to know one another better, could a closer bond begin to form between them?

What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim (Viki)

Lee Young Joon might be the vice-president of his family’s massively successful company, but that doesn’t mean he has what it takes to do a good job. Accompanied by his incredibly talented secretary, Kim Mi So for nine years, she has made him look like the shining star that Young Joon believes he is.

But after Mi So suddenly decides to quit, her arrogant boss comes to realize that he can’t live without her. Having unknowingly shared a traumatic childhood experience, the pair come to understand that maybe they do belong together after all.

With jealousy forming over Young Joon’s older brother, Lee Sung Yeon, and his growing relationship with Kim Mi So, the boastful executive decides he has to win back his secretary no matter what.

These are all AMAZING Dramas and I am recommending all of them. Cinderella and the Four Knights is another Cinderella retelling but done so much better. Falling into Your Smile is a hate to love romance story in a world of video games. Last but certainly not least What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim is hard to explain but it’s friends/enemies to lovers but with a twist.
