What I watched online between January and March of 2020. Still not well enough as my health is bad. So this is what I watched and loved on Netflix, Amazon, Viki and any UK channel.
Anne with a E returned in early January. One of my favourite books growing up. This is a nice darker adaptation. Watched all ten episodes in one day. I just enjoy this very much ! Sadden to see this was final season.
Doctor Romantic, I found one evening. A story about Boo Yong-joo, a genius and triple-board certified surgeon, who was once at the top of his field and used to work at Seoul’s top hospital, Geosan University. After a traumatic incident, he disappears and changes his name to Kim Sa-bu. He begins working at a small hospital named Doldam, located in Gangwon Province. He guides Kang Dong-joo and Yoon Seo-jeong to become great doctors by teaching them to fight against power and money for the sake of patients. I really enjoyed this.
The Guardians I came across one night. It tells the story of a group of five people who team up to serve justice themselves after losing their loved ones to criminals. The group consists of a detective, two prosecutors, a hacker, and an insomniac. They want to give these criminals the punishment that they deserve, and take matters into their own hands as the justice system in South Korea fails to capture the culprits. I really enjoyed this.
Come and Hug Me was a hard watch. A man and a woman who were each other’s first loves during childhood reunite years later as adults. In his childhood, Yoon Na-moo was a seemingly quiet and mysterious boy whose father was a psychopath serial killer. He meets his polar opposite in Gil Nak-won, a daughter of a popular actress. Through Nak-won’s persistence, pure and loving nature towards Na-moo, Na-moo falls into a reciprocated love. But, when Na-moo’s father Yoon Hee-jae, a man who has a twisted affection for his son, murders Nak-won’s parents their short love comes to an end. Years later Gil Nak-won is now Han Jae-yi, an aspiring actress (like her mother before her) who always tries to have a good outlook on life, but also has a panic disorder from her traumatic past. And Yoon Na-moo is now Chae Do-jin, a rookie detective who wishes to atone for his father’s sins. These two would-be lovers have held on to the precious memories of when they were together but, connected by a tragic fate they must try to overcome the stigma and hardships they will face.
Then I found The Pharmacist which is an American true crime documentary series produced by The Cinemart. The series relates the efforts of Dan Schneider, a small town pharmacist in Poydras, Louisiana, to identify his son’s killer and how this led to his gathering evidence against a prolific “pill mill” doctor in New Orleans. This was shocking and eye opening about the US health care.
I came across My Holo Love. A lonely woman with face blindness finds the perfect companion upon getting to know a human like hologram modelled after its genius creator. This was not bad, only twelve episodes and a limited series.
Crash Landing On You is one of my favourite TV shows of the year so far. I do not want it to end. It tells the story of two star crossed lovers, a South Korean heiress and a North Korean elite who also happens to be an army officer. One day, while paragliding, Yoon Se-ri has an accident caused by strong winds, leading her to crash land in North Korea, where she meets Ri Jeong-hyuk, a North Korean army officer, who agrees to help her return to South Korea. Over time, they fall in love, despite the divide and dispute between their respective countries. This has been so good. I just loved it.
After Hotel de Luna on Viki, I wanted to watch something else that the Hong sisters had written. I had already seen Warm and Cozy on Netflix last year and it was ok. Nothing special. I then found A Korean Odyssey. In 2017, Son Oh-gong and Ma-Wang are in conflict with each other as they look for a true light in a dark world where evil thrives. From there, Son Oh-gong is bound to his protective role towards Seon-mi, the little girl he had met years ago. Having made a contract with Seon-Mi 25 years ago, entitling her to seek help from Son Oh-gong whenever she calls him in exchange for letting him free, the two meet again in a fateful encounter. I really enjoyed this.
Next I watched Vagabond. I have had this on my watch list since September 2019. This has the same lead actor from A Korea Odyssey. A mysterious plane crash kills over 211 civilians, including Cha Dal-gun’s nephew. Determined to find out the truth behind the accident, Cha Dal-gun embarks on an investigation that leads him to a tangled web of corruption. His life intertwines with Go Hae-ri, a covert operative for the National Intelligence Service. I do like a action series. This was okay except for the ending.
Itaewon Class tells the story of ex-convict Park Sae-roy whose life has been turned upside down. In his youth, Sae-roy gets expelled for punching CEO Jang’s son Geun-won, who was bullying a classmate, and becomes bereaved when his father is killed in an accident caused by Geun-won’s reckless driving. Angered by the loss, he attacks Geun-won, leading to his three-year imprisonment. Following his father’s steps, Sae-roy opens his bar-restaurant DanBam in Itaewon seven years after he is released from jail, with the aim of expanding it into a franchise and defeating CEO Jang’s food company Jangga Group. This I watched weekly, and I enjoyed it. I am a fan of the lead actor Park Seo-joon other roles. He is another one that I will always support and watch his shows.
Then Moon Embracing The Sun. Set against the backdrop of a Korean traditional palace, this fantasy drama tells the poignant love story between a king and a female shaman. Originally she was born from a noble family and became the crown princess, but she was entrapped and faced execution. Finally, she lived as a shaman. This was really good, and I enjoyed this.
When the Camellia blooms is the story of Oh Dong-baek, a single mother who moves to the fictional town of Ongsan and opens a bar named Camellia. 6 years later, Dong-baek meets playful Yong-sik who declares his love for her. However Dong-baek does not reciprocate his love but Yong-sik persists in wooing her. When Yong-sik’s mother finds out about this, she strongly opposes as Dong-baek is a single mother with a son. Despite Dong-baek’s past lover and father of her child trying to win her back. Yong-sik eventually gets Dong-baek to fall for him. Meanwhile, a notorious killer sets out to claim Dong-baek as his next victim and Yong-sik protects her fiercely doing his job as a policeman and figuring out who the killer is. This was good and I would recommend this. It was not what I was expecting.
I found Wok Of Love starring Lee Jun Ho. It’s a love story hotter than the boiling oil in a sizzling hot wok. Across the street of the 6-star Hotel Giant, there stands a small, shabby Chinese restaurant, Hungry Wok. Chil Seong, the owner of the restaurant, originally took over the restaurant in order to provide a place to work for his former prison mates. One day, a man and a woman whose lives turned upside down overnight come visit Chil Seong. A former star chef, Seo Poong, and a broke heiress, Sae Woo, are in need of Chil Seong’s help so that they can get back on their feet. Tune in to Wok of Love and learn about the passion and love that can be found in the hectic working environment of a kitchen. Very easy going. Nice to watch.
Then Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. Bok Joo is a weightlifter who is pursuing her dream of winning the gold medal but she then finds romance for the first time in her life. While she is a woman who trains with heavy steel weights, she is also very feminine when it comes to relationships. To focus solely on weightlifting would jeopardize her relationship but leaving her weightlifting career for love would keep her from attaining her dreams. Can she find a way to have love as well as glory at the age of 20? The characters within this drama are elite athletes in weightlifting, swimming and rhythmic gymnastics who work hard to reach their goals in life. It covers their coming-of-age stories and relationships through hectic life. This was okay, nothing special.
Then another silly show, but I think it was meant to be, My Secret, Terrius. Go Ae-Rin suddenly loses her husband. A mysterious man, Kim Bon, lives next door. Kim Bon is a legendary National Intelligent Service agent. Three years ago, he was involved in a failed secret operation and the woman he loved died. He has since become disconnected with the world and lives alone quietly. He helps his neighbor Go Ae-Rin uncover a conspiracy, which her husband became involved with.
Live I found, and knew this is one I wanted to watch. This series contains the joy and sorrows of police officers at a precinct office. They try to uphold values in everyday life and maintain justice. Jung-O lives with her single mother and her father has ignored her existence. After graduating from college, Jung-O struggles to find a job. One day, she decides to take an exam to become a police officer. She studies for 2 years and finally passes the exam.

BBC I Player
Silent Witness follows a team of forensic pathologists as the solve various criminal cases. Season twenty-three consists of five stories, each told across two episodes. The synopsis for season twenty-three: ” A body in the concrete pillar of a car park. A downed plane. Scientific research gone wrong. The cases that end up at the Lyell Centre are rarely straightforward. Initial suspicions are challenged as the evidence mounts, and Nikki and the team must work harder than ever to find the truth.” This is a show I have been watching since the start. I just love it and will never miss this.
The makers of Sherlock bring you a brand new take on the most famous vampire of them all: the magnificent, brooding, deliciously deadly Count Dracula. 1897. English lawyer Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to meet a new client and a legend is about to get fresh blood. This is the tale of a terrifying, maze-like castle, of undead Brides, and a vampire Count whose ambition is to conquer the new world. I am fan of Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat work. This was aired over three nights in the New Year and it was very good. It was well written, produced and performed. I hope this runs for more seasons.
On BBC 2 one night I found Snow Cats and me. Gordon Buchanan joins pioneering biologist Dr Victor Lukarevskiy in snowy Russia to attempt to rehabilitate two pairs of Lynx held captive for years. In the wild, Lynx are athletic predators, but they’re shy, elusive and seldom seen. A beautifully mad documentary that I really enjoyed.
Every year thousands of young people are brought to mental health units across the UK to seek treatments. Latest estimates put the number of people who suffer from a mental condition at 1 in 3 and most first experience mental health problems when they are young. Stacey Dooley is going to work in Springfield Hospital, one of the oldest mental health units in the UK, to see what life is really like on the front line of mental health services. More than just observing, she will be working directly with staff, dealing with patients, and taking part in making incredibly tough decisions on what is best for patients. Stacey also spends time in a special acute assessment unit where patients can self-refer. As Stacey takes part in a discussion with staff about whether to admit him to the hospital or support him in the community, Stacey experiences for herself just how difficult the decisions and the judgement calls are that the team have to make. Police have brought Laura to the 136 unit, so called because it is the local designated place of safety as defined under section 136 of the Mental Health Act. She has been sectioned after being found on a motorway bridge, threatening to jump. She opens up to Stacey as they talk, trying to explain her thinking and her ongoing struggles with depression and her eating disorder – all stemming from traumas earlier in her short life.
White House Farm, I watched over six weeks. This case has always interested me. It was reported on my birthday on the news before I was even ten years old. I was shocked as this was not far from where we lived. White House Farm, revolves around one fateful night in August 1985 when five members of the same family were murdered at an Essex farmhouse. The series will seek to provide fresh insight into this family tragedy and the contested accounts of the events that took place at White House Farm. Essex Police initially believed that Sheila, who had mental health problems, had murdered her own family before turning the gun on herself. But Detective Sergeant Stan Jones had doubts about the murder-suicide theory, and about Sheila’s brother Jeremy Bamber, who first called the police to the farm. Eventually, it was Jeremy Bamber who was charged and convicted of the murders of his own parents, sister and nephews. Bamber is currently serving life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. He is one of the few prisoners in the UK subject to a whole-life order. Bamber still maintains his innocence.
The Good Karma Hospital is an old favourite. My mum and I have talked in the past about visiting Sri Lanka where this is filmed. The third series finds our tropical Indian hospital busy as ever, with several big new arrivals causing a stir. The team faces their most shocking case yet when one of their own nursing team survives a violent attack. Dr Ruby Walker faces a tricky dilemma over where her home lies – with her newfound Indian family, or at the bustling hospital? It’s made all the more difficult by her simmering relationship with Dr Gabriel Varma. The series will see the couple get closer than ever before, only to be blindsided by the arrival of a talented, glamorous older surgeon from Gabriel’s past. Can the relationship survive the threat? Series three also introduces us to a visiting Brit, Ted Dalrymple, an older man on a mission to find a love from his past. As Ruby manages his deteriorating health, she’ll aid him on his quest. Edward’s journey is moving and poignant, showing that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself and follow your heart, even across 50 years and thousands of miles.
I found a new website that shows all my favourite Asian programmes. I had found many shows with my favourite actors and actress from Asia. But the following shows where never found on the likes of Netflix or Amazon. I found a couple of episodes on YouTube but never the complete seasons. The first I wanted was Dr Romantic 2. Three years following the events of Dr. Romantic, Kim Sa-bu comes to Geodae Hospital to recruit a general surgeon. He finds Seo Woo-jin, a doctor with a troubled past who is ostracized by his fellow doctors, and offers him the job. In the meantime, Cha Eun-jae is suspended after making another mistake in the operation room and has no other choice but to follow the two doctors to Doldam Hospital. This was so good and an improvement on the first series. I really hope that this comes back for a third one. This in one of my favourites.
Then I watched What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim? The plot revolves around the ambitious Vice Chairman of a major corporation, Lee Young-joon, and his highly capable secretary, Kim Mi-so. Misunderstandings arise when she announces that she will resign from her position, after working for Lee Young-joon for nine years. I did enjoy this and pleased that I had finally found this.
Then, While You Were Sleeping is a combination of the legal drama and fantasy genres, focusing on the tale of three young adults who have acquired the ability to see the future through their dreams: field reporter Nam Hong-joo, rookie prosecutor Jung Jae-chan, and police officer Han Woo-tak. Some of these dreams show crimes that Jae-chan has to investigate and disastrous events that either the three of them have to suffer. Troubled by these dreams, the trio collaborate with each other to prevent these ominous dreams from turning into reality and to take down one of their archenemies, the corrupt lawyer Lee Yoo-beom. This I really loved and had been wanting to watch since I found out about this last year.
Then Angels Last Mission, Love. Lee Yeon-seo was a supremely talented and successful ballerina with her family’s Fantasia Ballet Company but suffers a devastating accident that leaves her blind. She is bitter and abusive towards her staff, including her loyal secretary and butler, her conniving family, and everyone else. Dan is an optimistic, carefree angel who is always getting into trouble. In order to return to heaven he is given the seemingly impossible mission of finding true love for Yeon-Seo, but ends up falling for her himself. This I really enjoyed aswell.
Then Her Private Life. Sung Deok-mi is a talented chief curator of Cheum Museum of Art, who also happens to have a secret: she is a fanatic fan girl of White Ocean’s Cha Shi-an. In addition, she is also the fan site manager of the famous “Shi-an is My Life”. Ryan Gold is a standoffish artist who develops Stendhal syndrome, eventually retiring as an artist. After the current boss, Uhm So-hye , gets investigated for embezzlement, Ryan Gold becomes the new Art Director of Cheum Museum of Art. After rumors break out claiming Deok-mi and Shi-an are dating, Ryan suggests that he and Deok-mi pretend to date to ward off Shi-an’s fans who threaten to harm her. However, Sindy, another fan site manager of Cha Shi-an, manages to land a job as an intern in the museum to prove that Ryan and Deok-mi are a fake couple, leaving both no choice but to continue the act even at work. As the lies get more and more complicated, the situation becomes messier and messier. Will Deok-mi be able to hide her secret? Will Ryan and Deok-mi fool Sindy? Or will both of them get caught? This was ok, nothing special.
Doctor John interested me. Cha Yo-han is a doctor of anesthesiology. He is arrogant, but he is a genius at his work. Kang Shi-young is a resident of anesthesiology who works with Cha Yo-Han. She is smart, warm and listens carefully to her patients. People, with mysterious acute or chronic pain come to the hospital. There, Cha Yo-han and Kang Shi-young try to find the causes of their pain. This I really enjoyed and I have seen a couple of the actor Ji Sung’s work and really enjoy his performances.
Forest, I started to watch weekly. Kang San-Hyeok is a member of the 119 special rescue team. He is handsome and smart, but he does not remember his childhood. Jung Young-Jae is an enthusiastic surgical resident. Kang San-Hyeok and Jung Young-Jae meet at a mysterious forest. Even though they do not want to, they must live together in the mysterious forest. Living there, they discover small pleasures. Kang San-Hyeok and Jung Young-Jae soon uncover a secret about themselves and the forest. I am just really enjoying it, and the forest they filmed in, is so beautiful.
Hotel Del Luna was next to watch. This I knew I wanted to see when I found out about it last year. The Hotel del Luna (formerly referred to as the “Guest House of the Moon”), located in Myeong-dong, Seoul, is not like any other hotel: its clients are all ghosts, and it is not visible in its true form during the day. Humans can only come across the hotel under special circumstances, for example, during a lunar eclipse. Jang Man-wol is the CEO of the hotel. Due to a huge sin committed a millennium ago, she has been stuck at the hotel catering to the dead before they pass on to the cycle of reincarnation. As a result of manipulation by Mago, she meets Koo Chan-sung’s father and makes a deal for his son to work for her after 20 years in return for his life and money. With his new found fortune and life, his father takes Koo Chan-sung abroad where the young man grows up as a sincere perfectionist who is level-headed, but also has a soft heart. He comes back to South Korea after his father’s death to be an assistant manager at a multinational hotel corporation, only to face Jang Man-wol and he ends up fulfilling the agreement and becomes the manager of Hotel Del Luna. Through Gu Chan-sung, the audience is introduced to the mysteries and the secrets behind the Hotel and its owner. This was amazing and I loved it. The biggest strength of “Hotel Del Luna” was the way it perfectly balanced tragic stories and life lessons with comedic moments — but maybe that’s the most important life lesson of all: that even through pain and suffering and loss, it’s important to remember to laugh.
I watched Guardian, The Lonely and Great God. Known in South Korea as Goblin. This was written and directed by the same people who made my favourite Descendants Of The Sun. Kim Shin is a goblin and protector of souls. He is the landlord of the grim reaper, who is in charge of taking deceased souls. Wanting to end his immortal life, Shin has been looking for his human bride, the only person who can end his life. Meanwhile, Ji Eun-tak is a high school student who remains optimistic despite the tragedies and difficulties she has experienced in her life. She summons the goblin by chance, and through various encounters, ends up falling in love with him. Sunny is a chicken restaurant owner, whose beauty is undeniable. These four characters’ lives take a series of twists and turns when they intertwine. This was really good. I glad I finally got around to seeing this.
Then back to my favourite Korean actor Ji Chang Wook. Back after his two year military enlistment with Melting Me Softly. Ma Dong-chan and Ko Mi-ran are both frozen during an experiment. They wake up 20 years later instead of 24 hours later and must keep their body temperature at 31.5° (max. 33°/88-91° in Fahrenheit) in order to survive. This was ok nothing special. I hope that Ji Chang Wook has a better show next time than this, but glad that I watched it.
Then I watched Devilish Joy. Gong Ma-Sung is a successor to the Sunwoo Company and he is an expert in the field of cranial nerves. One day, while trying to help a woman who he happens to meet, he has a car accident. Gong Ma-Sung suffers from short-term memory loss after the car accident and his memory lasts for only one day. Ever day, he writes down notes about what happened to him that day. The next morning, he memorizes the written notes that he wrote the night before. Gong Ma-Sung then meets Joo Gi-Bbeum. She used to be a popular actress, but she is not anymore. They fall in love with each other. This was okay and did make me add Hainan to my China wish list. If I am ever able to travel long haul again.
Then an amazing show called Just Between Lovers. Three young people who each lost a loved one in the same building collapse attempt to navigate their relationships through the haunting pain of the tragedy while helping to construct a replacement building. Lee Gang-Doo dreamed of becoming a soccer player, but an accident ended those dreams. His father died in the accident and he broke his leg. Lee Gang-Doo spent 3 years in rehab. Now, he doesn’t have anything and just wastes his days. Lee Gang-Doo then meets Ha Moon-Soo. Ha Moon-Soo makes architecture models. Ha Moon-Soo also endured through the same accident that killed her younger sibling. She has suffered from guilt that she survived. She has lived her life earnestly, while suppressing her feelings. After meeting Lee Gang-Doo, Ha Moon-Soo begins to express her hidden feelings. It was well written, produced, performed. I really enjoyed this.
Another amazing show was Watcher. The lives of Do Chi-Gwang, Kim Young-Koon and Han Tae-Joo were destroyed by a tragic affair. They became members of an internal affairs investigation team for the police and they try to dig up the truth on who is behind the tragic affair. Do Chi-Gwang is an elite detective. He is thoughtful and smart. He is also proud of his record of catching criminals. After going through a series of cases, he realizes the importance of work done by the police on corruption. Do Chi-Gwang then becomes the chief of the internal affairs investigation team. Kim Young-Koon is a police officer and member of the mobile patrol team. He acts cold to other people, but he is actually tender with a warm personality. He does not associate with other people. By accident, he happens to meet Do Chi-Gwang. Do Chi-Gwang got involve in a the tragic affair, which Kim Young-Koon tries to forget. To find the truth behind that case, he joins the internal affairs investigation team. Han Tae-Joo is a popular lawyer. In her past, she worked as a prosecutor. She became entangled in a case unexpectedly and survived even though her life was in grave danger. She then quit her job as a prosecutor and became a lawyer. She meets Do Chi-Gwang and Kim Young-Koon and joins their internal affairs team. I just really enjoyed this so much.
I found Tell Me What You Saw that only started this year, I got into this with four episodes left to run. And this was another OMG so good. Oh Hyun-jae was a genius profiler who cracked many cold cases using his unsurpassed profiling skills. One day, his fiancee was killed in an explosion set by a serial killer and Hyun-jae lived in seclusion after that. Five years later, a new murder takes place using the same method as that serial killer. While investigating the case, team leader Hwang Ha-young (Jin Seo-yeon) meets a detective from the countryside, Cha Soo-young, who has a photographic memory. She introduced Soo-young to Hyun-jae and they work together to go after the serial killer.
Then Missing You. Showing what damage money and lies causes. Fifteen year old Lee Soo-yeon is a victim of bullying at school, targeted because her father was a murderer. Through a series of fated events, she meets Han Jung-woo, the son of a chaebol and gangster. Jung-woo protects Soo-yeon from the bullies, they become friends and soon fall in love. One day, Jung-woo was kidnapped and Soo-yeon, who witnessed the abduction, attempts to help, only to be taken by the kidnappers as well. Kang Hyung-joon’s mother, the mistress of Jung-woo’s grandfather, and Jung-woo’s father have been fighting over a large sum of money. She finally succeeds in moving the money to a Swiss bank with the help of her nurse, Jun Hye-mi. Wanting to leave Korea safely with Hyung-joon as soon as possible, Hye-mi was ordered to have Jung-woo kidnapped until they can flee out of the country. Due to an unexpected accident during the time when Jung-woo and Soo-yeon were both kidnapped, they became separated. Jung-woo was rescued from the kidnappers by his father, but he was unable to return to help Soo-yeon, who was presumed to be dead. Jung-woo’s father, wanting to cover up the incident, bribes the kidnappers and the police to fake Soo-yeon’s death. Hyung-joon, however, had saved Soo-yeon’s life and killed a detective that was chasing after them. Soo-yeon then fled out of the country with Hyung-joon and Hye-mi. Fourteen years later, Jung-woo is now a homicide detective and has set his mind on finding Soo-yeon, believing that she is not dead. Soo-yeon is now known as Zoey Lou, a rookie fashion designer who appears to have a bright personality, but she still carries the emotional scars of her past inside her. Fate leads to the meeting of the two, but Zoey is unforgiving towards Jung-woo for abandoning her during the kidnapping. Meanwhile, Kang Hyung-joon, rich with the money his mother took from the Han family, returns to Korea for revenge. He appears warm and nice, but turns out to be a psychopathic murderer and uses the alias Harry Borrison to get his revenge on Jung-woo’s father for murdering his mother.
When The Weather Is Nice, is a lovely series. After a series of unfortunate events, Mok Hae-won quits her job in Seoul and goes back to Bookhyun Village, in Gangwon Province, where she briefly lived when she was in high school. There, she meets again her former classmate and neighbor, Im Eun-seob. He also came back to Bookhyun after leaving the village for a few years and now owns a bookstore. A very understated love story that I thought was so good.
Then a Chinese drama, Love Me If You Dare. Getting inside the head of a violent criminal is not easy. But Simon Bo, a brilliant criminal psychologist, has the ability to get into the minds of even the most mysterious and violent criminals. He’s a professor at The University of Maryland and works as an analyst and adviser on the police department’s most violent or difficult cases. With the help of his young assistant, Jenny Jian, Simon delves into the thoughts and intentions of the criminal mind. As the daughter of a veteran police investigator with a deep sense of justice, can Jenny help Simon open up emotionally as they work together to solve crimes? This I enjoyed.
Another crime show called Hello Monster. When a serial killer strikes women who all have a similar appearance, the police department’s Special Crime Investigation Team is stumped. While Cha Ji An, an elite detective, and her fellow colleagues are assessing the latest crime scene, the mysterious Lee Hyun shows up and instantly assesses the trademark attributes of the killer.
