Addictive Rating: 2
Synopsis: [Taken from wiki.d.addicts.com]
A drama set in 1997 (broadcast in 2013-2014), depicts a story of office men who try to make Oh Ji Young Miss Korea, in order to save their cosmetic company from bankruptcy. Oh Ji Young is elevator girl who was the most popular girl back in high school also the best looking girl in the neighborhood.
What I have to say:
The first third of the episodes were okay. Enough to keep me watching, but not stellar. The last two-thirds of this drama was pretty awesome and I found myself turning to my iPad to keep watching whenever I had spare time. It was wonderful to see how far the character Oh, Ji-Young went. Her family acts as a natural comedic backdrop for most of the drama. The two romantic stories in the plot were quirky, as Korean storytelling tends to be, but nonetheless charming.

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
