K-drama Feels:
  • Descendants of the Sun has everything a drama series could ask for- comedy, romance, loss, thrill, and an adorable lead and second lead couple.
  • The cast did a really great job. The whole team is complementing each other.
  • The lead couple has a really strong chemistry and many cute moments.
  • The second couple was also unique in their own way.
  • I like the bromance between Big Boss and Wolf.
  • The OST was great because it created a unique feeling and beautiful atmosphere for the drama. My faves : Always by Yoon Mi-rae, Everytime by Chen and Punch, With You by Lyn and You are My Everything by Gummy
  • Song Joong Ki presented the character so well and made me fall in love with his character instantly. Big Boss is one of those characters that will be marked forever. He is a kind of guy that can steal your heart away within minutes.
  • If you like funny, dramatic, action-packed love story then watch DOTS.


My Rating – 8.5/10 (Get ready to fall for Captain Yoo and Dr. Kang)
