Also Known As: Scandal: A Very Shocking and Corrupt Event / The Scandal
Episodes: 36
Broadcast Network: MBC

Main Cast:
Kim Jae Won as Ha Eun Joong
Jo Yoon Hee as Woo Ah Mi

    Shin Eun Gyung as Yoon Hwa Young
    Ki Tae Young as Jang Eun Joong
    Kim Hye Ri as Go Joo Ran

The Story:

The drama starts with a flashback when Ha Myung Geun, an honest police, loses his son when a building collapses. He finds out that Jang Tae Ha is the man who caused his son’s death. He then kidnaps Jang Tae Ha’s son, Jang Eun Joong. He raises Jang Eun Joong as his son, Ha Eun Joong. After the son grows up, he finds out that the man he believed to be his father was in fact the man who kidnapped him.

My thoughts:

I don’t usually watch this kind of drama. I just watched this because my mom watched this first, and I happened to watch an episode. You see, my curiosity always gets the best of me.

This drama is full of conflicts and revenge with a pinch of romance. From the first episode, the characters are fighting and deceiving each other. Too much anger and close-up intense staring. The story was unsurprising. Although I could even predict the ending, I was hoping for an unpredictable twist—the reason why I watched until the last episode. 

If you’re looking for a drama that is full of intrigue and tension, then this may interest you. However, if you want to watch something light and more enjoyable, I don’t think you’d like this drama.

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Review

I got it for free as a bonus when I bought Cosmopolitan Indonesia Anniversary issue in September 2012. I had never heard about the product before I bought the issue. So, I had to google it first. There were so many good reviews about this product. I started using this product last month since I ran out of my Olay Natural White All in One Fairness Day Lotion. 

Review: Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion

I’ve been holding off this review for a really long time. I kept this as a draft for far too long. Sorry! I had acne problems for years and tried so many products but none really helped. In 2011, my acne problem was worse than ever (thanks to Jakarta’s air pollution, stress and lack of sleep). So, I browsed on the internet to find the best skincare for acne-prone oily skin and many reviewers recommended Kiehl’s Blue Herbal collection.
