LIVE UP TO YOUR NAME (K-drama 2017)

This drama is a WOW.


Heo Im is an oriental doctor, acknowledged as the best in acupuncture and moxibustion in Joseon. His success is blocked due to his low status. One day, Heo Im travels through time and finds himself in present-day Seoul. He meets Choi Yeon-Kyung. She is doctor firmly believing in only modern medicine.

This is definitely one of my favorite Korean drama this year. It gives me a real emotional connection with the characters. The script is so well written with different timeline mixes modern and Joseon eras. Every episode is loaded with goofiness, laughter, melancholy and of course, it is morally uplifting which pact some heavy issues while dealing with the delicate touch.

I love the strong and natural chemistry of our leads. I was blown away with their cuteness and sincerity. Kim Nam Gil’s acting is superb, I can’t imagine anyone else in this role, but him.  Kim Ah Joong’s character took me a while to warm up, but as the story goes you will clearly mesmerize by her skill.

The finale gives absolute mix emotions. They asserted the lesson that staying true to your heart will lead you to the path of good choices.

And of course, the kiss! I haven’t seen a beautiful kissing scene in Kdrama for a long time, this is pretty realistic and their romance is a pure gold.


Overall daebak!

Verdict: 10/10
