Drama Review Introduction: 구여친클럽 (Ex Girlfriends Club)

As one may have noticed, I stopped writing drama reviews a long while ago. It's not because I stopped watching them, nooooooooooo lovelies I did not.. I'm still obsessed with Korean dramas. Besides this one, It's Okay, That's Love was one of the best ones I've seen recently. But I stopped writing reviews because on HAS I turned over the drama scene to HAS KDQ. But I've realized recently that there are some drama I literally want to write a review on RIGHT THEN. As I'm watching it. And this drama was the strongest one. I couldn't NOT write a drama review on it.. So from now on, I will write more reviews.. Not every drama I watch will have a review. Basically only the ones I watch and LOVE. Like "feeling like I can't breathe because this show is gonna end eventually" love.

Some facts about this drama:

1) This drama was still going on. The last episode airs on Saturday, June 13th(KST). Which is Friday here in America. :'(

2) The drama was originally suppose to be 16 episodes long. BUT, because the ratings were horrible in Korea, they decided to end the show at 12 episodes.. So they're having to speed along the story line so they can end in 12 episodes. Which normally would make the drama awkward because the cast has a whole new script to go by and the directors and producers are out of their mind busy and stressed to just finish the drama on time. This drama is not one of those cases. The actors, actresses, producers, writers, and directors have done such an AMAZING job of keeping the drama amazing, heartwarming, butterfly tingly feeling AND ALSO funny, well hilarious actually, and jam-packed with loads of drama. Just the way we all love dramas.... Drama filled. ;P Like a drama filled donut. Mmmmmmm... 

3) This is literally one of the best dramas I have ever seen thus far. The chemistry, the relationships, the personalities, and the situations are all just extraordinarily real and genuine. Even the way Myeong Soo looks at Soo Jin is so real. Every thing just seems so real. It makes my heart flutter and makes me feel lonely because I don't have a Myeong Soo in my life all at the same time. The way he looks at her makes me feel like this isn't even a drama. Like it's all real and he's actually in love with her. 

4) Lee Yoon Ji (the lioness Hwa Young) found out while the drama is still airing that she is 3 months pregnant. Congratulations!!!

Now I've actually talked about a bit of the drama in that last part, so I'll go into introducing the actors and characters..

1) The lovely Ms. Song Jihyo.

My girl. This girl can ACT!! I mean really ACT! In fact, she can do anything. Even bungee jump from ridiculously high altitudes.

She's gorgeous, funny, and overall just amazing. Most people know her as "Mong Jihyo" or Running Man's "Ace" or "Queen of Luck" as she's generally very lucky. There hasn't been a single drama with her in it that I haven't liked. She is always some amazing, wacky, spunky character that just lights up any drama. I LOVE HER!

Ji Hyo plays Kim Soo Jin. The main female lead.
Soo Jin is a film producer wants nothing more than to save her production company. Because of this, she accepts the a project to produce a webtoon. But eventually finds out that the webtoon writer is her ex boyfriend Myung Soo who is actually writing about his ex girlfriends. And as the movie starts shooting, the project also brings Myung Soo's other ex-girlfriends back into his life all at the same time. (Which is a nightmare, btw) and its all actually her fault. LOL. Myung Soo and Soo Jin have a very complicated past.. Involving her thinking she was his girlfriend at one point, and him not thinking that. (It's explained later on why they thought differently)... She has 2 gorgeous dudes in love with her.. Myung Soo and the director for the movie, Jo Gun. Who will win..? I know who wins. :D

Byun Yo Han.

Byun Yo Han plays Bang Myung Soo. This man is so gorgeous, I'm going to have to ask him to STOP. He's seriously caused me to squeal like a freaking dolphin when he smiles.

Bang Myung Soo is a popular writer of webtoons. His most famous webtoon is about his past relationships, specifically his three ex-girlfriends, which includes an older, wealthy divorcee, a chic and successful woman who works at an investment firm, and a nonpopular actress(Who I absolutely love) The webtoon reveals plenty of details about Myung Soo's love life, and it becomes a huge hit. Soon his webtoon gets adapted into a movie and the drama ensues. Hilarious drama.. But lots of it. 

Lee Yoon Ji

Lee Yoon Ji plays Jang Hwa Young, the lion in Myung Soo's webtoon. She's the one who has her life together the most... Until Myung Soo comes back and sends everything crashing back down... She has a great career, an amazing fiancee, and a generally happy life. Even though she's selfish and probably the wackiest one out of the bunch. 

Jang Ji Eun

Jang Ji Eun plays Na Ji Ah, the cat in Myung Soo's webtoon. She's probably the worst and most conniving and sneaky of them all. She's also Myung Soo's first love... She's a divorcee just trying to figure her life out.. And also trying to snag Myung Soo back into her life.. In the worst of ways.. She's the cool one, but she also has some horrible tricks up her sleeve. I honestly think she's the worst... Like I think she's gorgeous but she's sooooooooo bad. So bad. So so so bad. I can't stress this enough.

Ryu Hwayoung

Ryu Hwayoung plays Lara(Ra Ra whichever.) The fox in Myung Soo's webtoon. Lara is an actress (And not a successful one) who just wants to make her way into the successful acting world. While trying to seduce the director Jo Gun so that he'll stay on the project and make the movie, she seems to develop feelings for him. So the whole time that Myung Soo has feelings for Soo Jin, she's egging him on and on his team. She's probably the realest character of them all.. She's very straightforward and to the point.. I REALLY love Lara's character. Really.

Jo Jung Chi

Jo Jung Chi plays Choi Ji Hoon, Soo Jin's brother in law. He's very supportive and very funny throughout the whole drama.. I love him dearly. Haha.

Do Sang Woo

Do Sang Woo plays the role of the director Jo Gun. He's extremely gorgeous... Jo Gun's character is extremely cocky and arrogant. That typical guy that you love to hate in dramas. He develops feelings for Soo Jin while working on the project... And he SERIOUSLY. HATES. DRIVING. I feel ya there, Jo Gun, I also seriously hate driving. Ugh.. 

Kim Sa Kwon

Kim Sa Kwon plays Yeong Jae (Hwa Young's fiancee) There's not too much to say about his character other than, he's an extremely nice guy... Until you screw him over... Then he's completely evil.. And I love him... And feel sad for him in this drama. Sadddd. Sad sad.

Okay so this wraps up my introduction to the new drama review series I'm starting on Ex Girlfriends Club. I hope you liked it! Stay tuned for episode by episode reviews and GO WATCH THE SHOW. NOWWWWW. IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!
