Halfway through watching Birth of a Beauty, I had to stop and check the remaining time on the video. Whew, there was still another 30 minutes left. This is how engrossed I am with not just Beauty, but also Pinocchio, and Seo In Guk, who is showing us his hot manly side in the The King's Face. Check out last week's Top 10 list according to our total view count. How about you? Which are your favorite must-watch shows now? (The postcard-like photo is from Pinocchio.)

As for Pinocchio, I had to pause at the scene of their most beautiful kiss under the flickering winter lights framing it like a winter Valentine's card. I wanted to savor it before I continued watching. What a romantic kiss it was! And it came at a serendipitous moment in time and space. I really have to thank the Script-writing Goddess who gave us the story and the characters in the first place, but then the actors, the director, and the production team all came together to make it such an enjoyable experience for the viewers. I'm not sure when the show will end, but this wonderful drama has been a great gift for the holiday season. 

Have you watched The King's Face? I loved seeing Seo In Guk showing his manly side when he told his one true love how he would always follow her. Also, when he told the King, his calculating father and the ruthless, untrustworthy head of his people, what he'll do to reform the unfair system in the nation, I just wanted to jump up and high five for our hero! Keep up with the show with our swashbuckling drama club writers HERE.
