Posts Tagged ‘Winter Sonata’

I have never watched a drama solely because of its writer’s track record. That’s because I hardly check up the name of the screenwriter when I like a drama, yeah ok I’m ashamed since I know how important the writing is in making the drama an enjoyable and quality one. So I’ve done some research and hopefully uncover some other dramas I’d like to try.   

Dramas italicised are those I’ve seen but not in full; those I watched to completion are in bold.  


Oh Soo Yeon / 오수연

A Star’s Lover (SBS, 2008), Wedding (KBS, 2005), Love Letter (MBC, 2003), Winter Sonata (KBS2, 2002), Four Sisters (MBC, 2001), Autumn Tale (KBS2, 2000), All About Eve (MBC, 2000), Feelings (KBS2, 1994)  



I think each of the 2 dramas in bold is sufficient to guarantee Oh Soo Yeon a mention on this page. I have raved about Winter Sonata in great detail here so I shan’t repeat myself. Autumn Tale is also one of my favourite classics, and is one of the few I watched with devotion. It is a tragic tearjerker yes, but it is one of thoes which will make you cry and remember – a very well done melodrama with a standard to look up to. Some of its famous dialogues have become abused in later melodramas to the extent they’re losing their magic already, so watch it remembering it was shown in that era (10 yrs back!). It’s viewership rating peaked at 46.1% and averaged 38.6% during the broadcast.   




Winter Sonata is THE show which propelled me into the world of kdramas.


It is also the drama I have rewatched countless times and the only drama that made me go crazy over for a very long time. The feeling of attachment to WS is quite different from other dramas I’ve also raved about. After it made its way to the top of my all-time favourites chart, I can’t seem to replace it anymore. Seriously, I doubt if I can ever craze over a drama more than I did for WS. I used to stay awake the whole night simply REwatching the drama till the crack of dawn!! @.@
