Bartender 1! This is like the flip-side to Yakitate-Japan. (revised review)

+ Appearance-wise, there is nothing spectacular, but it's nice.
- Storywise, it's not funny nor dramatic...nor is there a big overall plot.
+ Pleasant male-female duet opening. Nice slow tune at the end with live-action shots of a bartender making a pretty drink.

Quick impression~ There is a bar, Eden Hall, where a bartender resides and is able to remember drinks he made for customers he had a long time ago. Each episode seems like it'll have a customer with a problem. They solve it with alcohol. hehe, yes, that sounds bad...but hey, they are legal adults there. The bartender looks like a grown-up Azuma Kazuma. 'God's glass' is said a few times...I hope they are joking. I may watch a few episodes of this since it is refreshingly plain. Episode 1 was about a man who had a crappy professional life and hates bars. He gets water-ed down whiskey. woot.

Hwangjiny 1! has made it's way over on youtube. It's quite beautiful with the traditional Korean setting and clothing, but like Goong, the initial awe may fade if the characters' personalities don't hold. I'm hoping that the premise lives up to the hype. This is about a famous gisaeng (like a geisha but more of a dancer/musician/entertainer), Hwang Jin-y during the Joseon period. I'm guessing she attracts alot of men, but there is probably one true looooove. The show features alot of historic day-in-the-life-of scenes which are interesting. The story starts out when Hwang jiny is a little cute girl who sees a group of gisaeng performing.
