12. King 2 Hearts 더킹 투하츠 (2012) Korean

Lee Seung Gi, Ha Ji Won, Jo Jung Suk, Yoon Je Moon

Drama Rating: 9/10     Neck Score: A (B+)

The necks are good... but too many stiff collars so... yeah.  Well made, perfect blend of political drama, action, humor, plot twists, and creepiness.  Yoon Je Moon is so, so good at being creepy.  I almost couldn't watch some scenes.  Also, one of the best kisses ever.  We've got a North Korean soldier girl and a South Korean prince (if there were still princes in South Korea) who have to work together, first as team mates, then dating, then actually falling in love, then saving their two nations.  A lot happens, but this was so well done that even when you don't want to watch parts, and put off finishing because you know the inevitable will happen, it's still so good that you have to watch it.  Also, super nice OST.  Best acting job Seung Gi has done.  Ha Ji Won is good as always.  Fell in love with Jo Jung Suk.
