- Supportive men
This one’s from about ten or fifteen years ago (I think) and the female lead is a wannabe architect or architecture student whose dad is a famous, established architect. They live in an awesome house he designed, with sort of a traditional courtyard in it. At one point she’s so stressed out she gets her period at a party, and makes the male lead go out and buy her tampons. Which he teases her about but totally does, blowing my young mind and ruining me for unsupportive boyfriends from then until the end of time.
- A deadly bank
Some years ago I saw a drama about the employees of a bank who were not efficient enough; so they were sent to an office in the countryside, somewhere in the middle of a field. Their building had no utilities at first and there was someone mysterious who kept stealing their snacks (later they discover it’s a girl from that village). Different things happen, but I only remember that one of the employees told her colleagues she was going on a trip abroad, but her passport was discovered in the field. Later, it was discovered that she was killed, and the most innocent looking character was the culprit. (I don’t remember the motive behind the murder.)
- Military family
What drama had a woman who was a colonel and married to an army commander? Her daughter was also in the military and became a second lieutenant.
- An ante
Help! I have been banging my head just to recall the title of this particular sageuk but sadly, I really could not remember. The story’s about a concubine who was so pretty that the king fell in love her. He would visit her instead of the queen, who of course was very jealous and mad about this concubine.
Something I do remember is that this concubine was a real, historical figure and the king favored her and granted her the highest ranking for consorts. She was very famous because of her beauty. The king also built a special place for the concubine; it was like their lovers’ nest. He was supposed to visit the queen to make love with her, but he went to the pretty concubine instead and bad things happened in the palace after that.
