Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 21

1 Comment



Hello and welcome back fellow readers/followers! Today’s question is gonna be a fun one!

Your favourite ahjussi romance

I just can’t pick one…there’s been so many. I am definitely a sucker for these ahjussi romances (more so than noona romances to be honest) and it’s quite sad to see that many of these dramas are quite downplayed and less popular than noona dramas. I’m presuming it’s because people are more commonly found in such large age gap relationships, so it hits a nerve? I don’t really know what the true reason is, but certainly the noona dramas are a lot more popular than the ahjussi ones. Anyway, below are the answers I’d give (I kept it to 3 to ensure that I wouldn’t ramble on)

1. Goblin


Where do I begin with this one? I won’t share much in order to keep it all in my review (which will hopefully come out soon!) but this really is a great one for me in my opinion. I just really bought the chemistry and love Eun Tak and Kim Shin had for each other (and I ship them HARDCORE!). Despite their age difference, it didn’t stop my heart from falling in love with the innocent first love Ahjussi had for his little Eun Tak. *swoon*

2. Marriage Contract


As I had mentioned in my Year in Review, I really shipped these two since Ji Hoon really and truly loved Hye Soo and her daughter wholeheartedly. The age difference is more evident on camera, but in terms of their acting and love for each other, who could care less? They were just able to sell that chemistry to the audience, easily.

3. The Painter of the Wind


Now, for this final one, it takes a very special place in my heart. The story doesn’t focus itself on the romance for most of the time, but the buildup of the connection between Yoon Bok and her mentor Dan Won is just so sweet and touching to watch. As the drama states, they were everything to each other, and I just loved watching them share those special moments together. The drama overall took a very mature approach, which made the drama so deep and more daring than most dramas out there.

Here’s the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge if you are interested in joining!  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s answers to these questions.
