Drama Review: White Christmas

I recently got asked what my favorite Korean drama was and the one that came straight to my mind was White Christmas, a special drama series produced by KBS in 2008. It is a mystery/psycho-thriller that revolves around the story that revolves around "Susin High School, nicknamed "Prison High," is an elite school attended by the top 1% of students in the country. Their stellar marks are the result of constant pressure and a strict punishment system, to the point where students avoid from any activities outside of studying. It is in this atmosphere that seven students and a teacher remain at school for the winter break, joined by Kim Yo Han, a psychiatrist who was forced to take shelter with them after he was involved in a car accident nearby. At a time when everyone else is celebrating Christmas Eve, the students realize that the anonymous letters they each received were not the result of a harmless prank; there was a murderer in their midst. A question lies unspoken: Are monsters created, or are humans born monsters?".

It was intense and had really great rookie actors like Bang Sung Joon and Kim Woo Bin (absolute brilliance as Jihoon and Mireu). The level of acting for their age was phenomenal and the plot line was brilliant. It had me on my toes the entire time with the mind games and little plot twists. It was just BRILLIANT. White Christmas just really wasthe best. A drama everyone needs to watch in their lifetime! :)
