The Beauty Inside
The kind of unique storylines that Korean dramas are famous for, is well executed in this series. We have a very different plot that is bound to keep all the fans hooked from the start till the end. So, the first thing that we are shown at the start of the series is our main protagonist, that is, Seo Do Jae. When you look at his backstory, you will realize how good his life is and how smoothly it is running. At one point, you will also become very jealous of the level of comfort that he is living in. The man has got the looks of a hero, has a really nice job in the form of an executive in an airline firm. He is a very normal guy that ladies seem to admire all around him but this is the point from where the actual twist starts to happen.
So, Do Jae is actually suffering from a very weird condition called Prosopagnosia. A person who is diagnosed with it is unable to remember the faces that he might have seen just a moment ago. All his life, this is his biggest secret and he is trying his best to hide it. And how has he been surviving till this point you ask? Do Jae tries to remember the personality or how the people act around him. Now, on the other hand, we have the female lead in the series called Han Se Kye. She is a very pretty lady and works as an actress. On the outside, even Se Kye seems to have all of her matters together in hand and leading a perfect life. But beneath all her talks, she is hiding a very big secret of her own.
This happens to her every month that she wakes up with the face of a completely different person. This appearance of her continues for one week and she has to live with that. Later in the scenes, we witness Do Jae, as well as Se Kye, cross their paths. Luckily, Se Kye is the only person whose face Do Jae is able to remember. This automatically creates a connection between the two because this has never happened with Do Jae before. Now, the main question that might be bubbling up in your head is if they pass through this difficult time and be together or not? To find the answer to this question, all you guys will need to do is tune in to Amazon Prime Video and watch the show.
There are so many plots around the world that focus on the story where a character might be suffering from memory loss. This is why the story might sound very familiar to some people but that does not mean that the plot isn’t executed well. In fact, the story has been put out in the show with its own twists and turns that makes it very special. As for the main protagonist of the series, it is Gong Ma Sung. This character has been through a lot of hardships but through the thick and thin, he has tried to only smile and keep a jolly face. Their family is the owner of Sunwoo Company and he has now become the successor of it. Also, there are other special abilities that Gong Ma has within him.
He can solve any problem which is related to the Cranial nerve as he is an expert on that subject matter. This was all just a back story but the main one starts when one fine day, he meets a woman and was trying to help him. Although, instead of being successful in that, he gets involved in an accident and this changes his entire life and the way he acknowledges things. The worst damage that could be done by this accident to Ma Sung, happened with his memory. Like we talked about, the main protagonist loses all of his memory and could not remember a thing from. his previous life. All this while, this accident also affects his present memory as he is able to remember the things that have happened around him in a day, and the next day, he forgets them all.
So, as any classic tale would do to the protagonist, in order to remember everything, he writes everything that has happened to him in a diary. Later in the scenes, as Ma Sun is struggling through his new life and trying to adjust, he comes across a woman who used to an actress. Soon, he falls in love with her and writes in her diary about her. But the only problem is, that he could not remember her after one day. Now, to see if the couple really made it through all these problems, you have to open Amazon Prime Video and start watching the series.
100 Days My Prince
As everyone might already make out from the trailer or the snapshot of the show, you could make out that it is set in the historical Korean era. All this while, besides the plot and setting of the story, if you look at the costumes worn by the actors and actresses, they are top-notch. Obviously, these are the little things that make a show amazing. Now, we should come back to discussing the plot. So, Hong Shim is the main protagonist in the series. She is living in a village among her community people but there only is one problem with her. She is getting old and is still unmarried. She actually is the oldest unmarried lady in the entire society they have around her.
Nevertheless, this factor does not stop her from being awesome and at one point, she really gives off the vibes of a hero. The character is displayed to be super strong and is trying hard to support herself as well as her father. On the other hand of the story, we have Lee Yul. He is the Crown Prince of Joseon and is really ruthless. I mean, his character is shown to be very cold and strict, and how he does not like people who are residing at his palace. Although, reality hits him pretty soon and the entire audience is able to witness it. At times in his life, Lee gets pretty lonely and one day, out of the blue, he passes a very strange law. In it, he declares that all the citizens of his empire in Korea who have reached the age of marrying must do so before they reach the age of 28. Well, this creates chaos in the life of Hong Shim who still has not found a perfect match for her but is close to being 28.
In order to avoid getting punished, she sets on to find a boy that will be good for her to marry. Then the creators pull the plugin their story and what we see is just fateful. An assassination attempt happens on Lee Yul and he gets brutally injured. This is when he finds himself in the care of Hong Shim as well as his family and the next thing called ‘love’ is bound to happen as all of you might already have made out. As a result of the injury because of that accident, Lee gets diagnosed with a very temporary form of Amnesia. But you know what happens next? Hong gets married to Lee himself in order to avoid the punishment but now, will this get their story started or not?
Just like we have seen that the previous entry in the list was a historical drama, in the same way, Jumong is also a historical tale. As for the main protagonist of the series, it is King Jumong. He is the one who has founded the Goguryeo dynasty back in 37 BC. If we look at it, it feels like the show is based on the real history of these Korean Kings. So, back to it, when he was very little, Jumong was taken by King Geum Wa. He also took his mother and later we saw that she has become the concubine of the king. After all the time, they all believed that the real father of Jumong might have died when an attack from the Han Dynasty hit them.
We see that Geum Wa has two sons but he never differentiated between Jumong and his own lads and treated them equally. But as we could see, Jumong was not as strong or talented as his stepbrothers and had to live in their shadows. Then later in the story, we saw that Jumong started a fire. It was so terrible that an entire ship burnt down but he did not do it on purpose. But that does not mean that anyone is going to believe his innocence. Society started seeing him in the form of a disgrace to the entire dynasty and this is why he was stripped off from his title. As he was let out of the place, Jumong ended up living with the robbers as he had no other place to go.
This is the place where he finally gets out of his dreamy beautiful life and meets the harsh realities that a common man has to face. While he is at it, Jumong stumbles across his real father called Hae Mosu. This is when his father decides to teach him fighting as well as archery. But then his fate changes completely when his own stepbrothers kill his father and this fills Jumong with an act of serious revenge.

Now, if we shall discuss the story, like every Korean drama, it is pretty intriguing. I mean, the main protagonist of the series is Kim Bon who once was a special ops agent.

As it turns out, the two have been staying really close together all this time. The secret agent has been hiding his personality and profession in the apartment which is just next to hers.
The reason why she went into hiding was grief. Yes, pure grief. It was because, during the secret operation in which he was also involved, he lost the woman he cared for and loved the most.
