Suspense, Action, Thriller

Lately, I’ve been hooked to watching Korean dramas, for it has been my only way to escape from reality because sleeping is not enough anymore. Before, I am into romantic-comedy genre, but since a colleague recommended suspense/action/thriller ones, I can say that I like it more.

I am sharing the three latest Korean dramas I’ve watched, hoping you’ll like them too. I actually didn’t read the plots of these before watching it to add more “suspense” and not have any idea how the story goes and just surprise myself with every scene. But I decided to include the plots here, to save yourself some time from searching it on Google.

God's Gift: 14 Days

God’s Gift: 14 days

Kim Soo-hyun is a mother whose young daughter Han Saet-byul gets kidnapped and murdered. Discovering a miraculous ability to go back in time exactly two weeks before the event, Soo-hyun is determined to expose the kidnapping plot and save her daughter before she dies all over again. Helping her is Ki Dong-chan, a former cop turned private investigator out to prove the innocence of his mentally challenged brother, who is falsely accused of murdering Dong-chan’s ex-girlfriend. As Soo-hyun and Dong-chan race against the clock in the allotted 14 days, new light is shed on the crimes, and they uncover secrets far more treacherous than Soo-hyun could have ever imagined.

Wikipedia

This has a little bit of fantasy, which is the main twist of the drama. But there are more than that! While watching it, you’ll get confused and keep guessing who the killer is. I’m not gonna give any clues not even a hint on how I felt with the ending. But seriously, I still had questions left unanswered after it ended.
