King The Land (2023)

“I’m always smiling. I smile even when I’m hurt or sad. But it’s better that I suffer the pain. If someone else suffered because of me, that would make me feel even worse.” – Cheon Sa Rang

K-drama Feels:
  • Very generic romantic comedy, not anything groundbreaking. Is it enjoyable though? Yes.
  • Each week I am sitting at the edge of my seat waiting for a new episode to drop and have enjoyed so many moments in the series.
  • I really enjoyed this series. Simple and refreshing, wala masyadong plot twist, just romance.
  • Even though I never felt as if the show was dragging, I do think though that this series could have been shorter as there was a lot of filler content.
  • The chemistry between leads is great. There is no doubt that Junho and Yoona are very pleasing to the eye, and put together they make the perfect eye candy.
  • The second leads have great chemistry as well.
  • Not your most unique romcom but they nailed it. Yung sa k-drama na lang kinikilig at ang dami kong kilig dito.


My Rating – 9.0/10 (Served exactly as intended: a pure rom-com delight.)
