Haeng A Ri Hwan Bubblegum Kiss episode 8 of Bubblegum

I guess I’m on a little bit of a fan art kick. I’ve been wanting to draw the bubble gum kiss between Haeng and Ri Hwan (Episode 8 of Bubblegum) for a while now.

It’s nice to think of the sweet moments right now. I know it will all work out, but at the moment things are messed up and not as they should be.

Let’s reflect on a lighter moment where they both were at their happiest.

Hey guys,

I’m working on my Episode 9-10 review for Bubblegum and also my episode 3-4 review for Oh My Venus. I know how I feel but putting my thoughts into words is proving itself challenging this week. That why I wanted to make this drawing of Ri Hwan. I have the image of teary eyed Ri Hwan stuck in my head. I’ll elaborate more in my review. For now… I leave this here.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Kdramadreamer


Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year. I’m approaching my one year blogiversary and I want to let you all know that I really appreciate you.

Have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy your kdramas!



When you can’t write, paint.

So, I know, I know – I’m the worst. I haven’t posted new content on my blog in quite some time (stop yelling at me!).

What have I been up to? Well, I’ve been watching tons of TV. Way too much TV. Big Brother is almost over (so I can finally get my life back) and I’ve finished the Korean version of Fated to Love You. I also started watching American series “New Girl”, which is pretty funny and cute. I’m about half way done the second season. I also realized I never actually watched season 11 of Big Brother US in its entirety, so I’ve gone back and started watching it. Now I just need to pick up a new Kdrama – so let me know if you have any suggestions.

I’ve been wanting to write, but I’ve been feeling pretty self conscious about my writing lately. There are so many talented individuals who write reviews, so I feel like what’s the point. I know, I know – this is a terrible attitude and I need to snap out of it.

So, I do plan to write my Fated to Love You review soon, but I really don’t even know where to start. I may re-watch first to find my angle. 

In the meantime, I’ve been painting because I don’t really have to think about it like I do with writing. I can simply and freely create. This is my latest creation.

I hope everyone has a fantastic day and hopefully I’ll get over my writing slump and write more reviews soon.


Fated to Love You (Kdrama) Fan Art by Zhaoul

Hello! I still have to form together my thoughts of episode 3 and 4 of Fated to Love you. In the meantime, I wanted to draw some more fan art. I will say, I really liked the last two episodes. Lee Gun has been a bit of a roller coaster, but that doesn’t surprise me by any means. His core person is someone I really like, so I do hope that we see more of that in between his paranoid freak-outs.

Mi Young is still extremely likable. I still can’t get past how genuine she is; which is ironic because Lee Gun seems to think she’s this master manipulator now.

That’s all I’ll say for now.

Mi Young is really fun to draw. She seems to have such innocence and purity of heart. Most of us don’t like pushover female leads, but I don’t lump her in with the other weak female leads. For one, I don’t think she’s really weak. I think she is too kind to a fault, but I think this is an area in which we might see her grow. I can forgive her flaw also because she seems to have other character strengths. She has an inner beauty which shines; but she doesn’t realize it.

I wanted to capture the moment where Mi Young overhears Lee Gun’s practice proposal. She is so touched by his words that it almost looks like she falls in love in that moment. You can tell she is the hopeless romantic type. To add to the atmosphere of the scene, I decide to keep the original photo background, but I blurred it a bit and removed most of the color to keep the focus on pure heart, lovely, sweet Mi Young.


I’m still taking requests if you have another Fated to Love Character you would like drawn. You can also let me know if there is a specific scene you have in mind. I’m planning on continuing to make them until I get sick of it.


More Fated to Love you (Korean Drama) Fan Art by Zhaoul

Here’s another piece of fan art I made from Episode two. I love this moment where they are… you know. This illustrate it in such an innocent cute way, while still making it obvious.

I made this one more stylized since the background already had that “cartoonish” look.

If you have any special requests for Fated to Love you fan art let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
