Why K-dramas: August 5, 2016

Is it really true? I get to rant about K-dramas this week? Oh bless the heavens! I really wanted to spend my entire books post last week squealing over W, but I didn’t. I think. But I can this week!

My Reason to watch K-drama: Because when you find a really good show, it means you get two episodes a week instead of one.


Upcoming and Excited

Jealousy Incarnate (I’m just kinda low-key excited for this one. I watched the trailer and thought it looked pretty cute, it’ll be a nice change from some of the more intense stuff I’m watching right now.)

What I’m Watching

W: Two Worlds (ep. 6 *heart melts, brain explodes and the universe rolls over* it’s ok! I’m ok! I’m not dying of happiness or anything over here! And because this is my blog, I get to discuss the preview if I want to. I totally rewatched the teaser to ring check him, and yup. He was telling the truth. I’m so excited.^^)

Let’s Fight Ghost (ep. 8 aww, how cute!! I really think people aren’t giving Taecyeon enough credit for the job he’s doing here. I honestly can’t imagine anyone else in the role pulling it off quite like he does. He acts tsundere so well, playing off the others so well as the straight man. I find it adorable and can’t wait to learn more about the mystery behind his family’s deaths.)

Missing Noir M (ep. 4 I really needed something else to watch while I wait for episodes of the other two, and I didn’t want anything even remotely similar. As in, no romance. Because there would never be enough to satisfy me, and then I’d have three shows I need a romantic payoff from. So I started this, and boy is it good. Are we sure there’s only 10 episodes?)

Queen In-Hyun’s Man (ep. 14 I love this writer so much, but there’s so much justified angst in her shows I just shut down sometimes. And then I need to take the dramas in bite sized pieces, savoring each bit. So I’m finishing up QIHM [finally getting more than the recaps] while I wait for W as well.)

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (ep. 3 So I went a little crazy, I know! It takes a lot to distract me from Lee Jong Suk. I started this one for the third time and I think it’s sticking. I’m excited to see him not trying to get rid of her, because I already love her and it hurts.)

Beautiful Mind (ep. 3 I’ve just picked this one back up again, not wanting to risk it if the episode cut would harm the ending too much. But I don’t think it has, and I’m excited to get back into it!)

Finished Watching

Nothing for now, I’m just starting up a whole new batch of shows. Totally excited! There’ll be more finished ones next time.

How’s that for a drama lineup? Really, it’s a good time to be a kdrama fan. Plus some further out kdramas (K2, the Lee Min-Ho one) that could maybe be good. Til next time!

Thanks for reading,

  1. I’m behind with almost everything these days, sigh. :( Tons of things to do to during the last two weeks of my vacation and then I just started a new job this week. Well, Mystic Nine is the only show I’m current with. Looks like hot guys raiding toombs is what I need right now, LOL!

    Missing Noir M is quite solid, one of the better OCN shows. My nbr 1 is still VP though. :)

    QIHM is mostly great and has one of the best male leads characters in drama history. It did falter a bit towards the end and I know that some people didn’t much like how they tied up the plot. I had no problems with that though.

    Beautiful Mind didn’t initally interest me much as medical shows aren’t really my thing but I’ve seen so many positive comments about it that I decided to put it on The List.

  2. That’s an impressive line up! I am amazed you can watch so many shows at the same time. 6! I had 5 then it kind of became 3 because I fell behind. lol. Drama watching goals right there XD

    I was contemplating QIHM but I don’t think I can take more than 1 show by the writer at a time.
