Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

KCON LA came and went this past week (thanks to everyone who came out to hear our panels and play games with us!), so of course we all got behind on our drama-watching as a result. I never like to let myself get more than two weeks behind on a show, because for some reason more than four episodes is the tipping point where I start to feel like it’s homework to get caught up. Is that just me? There are only so many hours in the day, and time travel has its consequences! What’s your tipping point when you give up on finishing a show? Or am I talking crazy talk, and quitting is for losers? –girlfriday

 

javabeans

After the Show Ends: I still don’t know how much of this reality-variety setup is real and how much is constructed, but there’s an addictive quality once you start getting invested in the couples. There are enough moments of flirty awkwardness and petty jealousy to give the interactions a realistic tinge, like So-hee falling asleep on Suk-jin’s shoulder on the plane and Minhyuk feeling slighted (“I have shoulders too!”), or how So-hee sometimes checks to see if Suk-jin is noticing what she’s doing. If Suk-jin weren’t so self-aware and gruff and conscious of the cameras, I swear they’d be dating by now.

Bring It On, Ghost: Does anyone else feel like the ghost-of-the-week format makes the story too slow? Or maybe there wasn’t much story to begin with, and the ghost-fighting scenes pad it out. In any case, I feel like I’ve been watching this show forever. They’re adorable, so yay, but plotwise I’m getting antsy.

Doctors: Namgoong Min! The episodic cases can be rather ho-hum (particularly when they don’t tie into the main characters’ arcs and are there just to solve), but he made this week’s episodes shine.

W—Two Worlds: I have no idea where we’re headed, but I don’t care; the ride is exciting and unpredictable in the best of ways. I love how his very existence transcends time and space, but I love even more that it’s the regular ol’ heroine who seems to be the linchpin; I keep thinking she holds the ultimate power in this universe, and just needs to figure out what it is and how to use it. Probably. Maybe. What do I know? This show could change everything in the span of the next episode.

Uncontrollably Fond: I was juuuust starting to consider dropping this, but this week dug a claw in my heart and dragged me back in bleeding. Maybe the light, upbeat promos were the drama’s undoing, because rom-com cuteness isn’t actually the name of the game, and anyone expecting a cheery romance was in for a disappointment. But now we’re in heart-wrenching melodrama waters, and I’m drowning in delicious angst. Teeeeears. Also, Kim Woo-bin looks like he’s really dying onscreen and I want to jump in and save him, W-style. Can anybody draw a cure for cancer?

Wanted: I’m all for complex and intricate mystery plots, but this show is in convoluted territory now, where following the specifics of the plot feels like it requires a lot more effort than it should. So mostly, now I’m just watching this for Ji Hyun-woo and his beautiful, beautiful face. (Seriously, he has never looked more beautiful.)

 

girlfriday

Currently recapping: W—Two Worlds

Doctors: Still watching this, but I often find myself more interested in the side characters and their little stories. I like the lead characters, I do—but they have almost zero conflict to speak of. Meanwhile, Yoon Kyun-sang has a cute potential noona romance going on, and Baek Sung-hyun is stepping it up too. I’m mostly watching it for them now.

Police Unit 38: I didn’t like that the second to last week had soooo much setup in preparation for the final heist, but the bromance and the clever twists keep me onboard. Besides, I can’t have come this far without finding out what the final twist-upon-twist-upon-twist will be, right?

Bring It On, Ghost: Ack, I got behind on this show while KCON happened! Oh no, I have to spend hours watching Kim So-hyun the sassy ghost and her posse of goofy sidekicks, what ever will I do?

Uncontrollably Fond: Sooooo behind on this.

The Good Wife: Yoon Kye-sang, were you always this hot, and why didn’t I know it until now?

Age of Youth: Offbeat, a little unnerving, but also sweet and fun. It’s not the light, fluffy campus drama I was expecting, but I enjoy how different each girl is from the rest of her housemates. There’s just something nice about a low-key drama that explores female friendships on a micro-level, and I like that these roommates can fight about underwear or crappy boyfriends one moment, and then bond over drinks in the next.

Currently recapping: Doctors

Police Unit 38: I marathoned the whole show up to its current episode over two days, and I regret nothing. Ma Dong-seok is such an endearing ahjussi in this, and his bromance with Seo In-gook is so fun! Misfit vigilante squad scamming the top 1% is right up my alley.

Uncontrollably Fond: There’s very little happening, Suzy’s delivery often makes her sound like she’s whining, and Kim Woo-bin needs a hug.

W—Two Worlds: This show frightens me a little and throws me into my own existential spiral. Everything feels unfamiliar because this show is breaking a lot of rules, but it’s executed with style. Basically, it’s my favorite rollercoaster ride: stressful, satisfying, and exhilarating.

The Good Wife: I want Hye-kyung to be as vicious and cunning as Tae-joon, but I know she’s the good wife for a reason. As jaded as she may be, she maintains her composure with a fine balance of compassion and realism. And that’s what I call class.

 

tineybeanie

Yes, That’s How It Is: I originally started this in hopes that time would pass more quickly until the start of Song Jae-rim’s new weekend drama Our Gap-soon (which also stars his former fake wife Kim So-eun). Now, I’ve grown fond of it as it’s about to end. Yes, That’s How It Is has more meaty emotional substance especially in Kim Hae-sook’s monologues and less makjang elements than its more successful competitors Five Kids and Happy Home. So it’s with a bittersweet feeling, I await the finale of this heartwarming family drama.

Five Kids: It’s a surprising day when I feel sympathy for the selfish, spoiled princess character. Yet, that’s exactly what happened last Sunday. Aww Jin-ju. Next time, maybe you can find a man who’s less of a mama’s boy?

Master–God of Noodle: I know I’m late to the noodle party, but better late than never, right? I’m actually really enjoying the backstory of the murderer. I’m only on the third episode and the body count is already like five. Also, I’m in love with Lee Sang-yub’s character. He’s such a sweetie. I hope he gets a happy ending.

 

SailorJumun

Currently recapping: Age of Youth

W—Two Worlds: I… This… I can’t… Ohhhmygod. What is this drama doing to my mind?? The writing has proven to be original and unpredictable, so as I start every new episode, there’s already an overwhelming amount of tension, even with scenes where Chul and Yeon-joo are just smiling and talking. I never know what bomb the writer’s going to throw next and I love it. More than that, I love how much discussion the show leaves out in the open. Should Yeon-joo care about Chul when he’s not even real? What if he is real? How is he real? It creates so much great conflict and I can’t wait to see how the Writer-nim handles their relationship. I love the two characters both individually and together (gosh, they’re so sweet together), so I’m ready for them to merge their two separate stories into one incredible love story.

Doctors: The pace of this drama has been consistently slow, and I don’t see it speeding up any time soon, but I do appreciate the small moments we get with our doctors and their patients. This week in particular had me crying like a baby, thanks to the wonderful Namgoong Min and the theme of struggling fathers.

Five Kids: Jin-joo, nooooo! Please don’t give up on your marriage like this. Just talk to your boyfriend, for God’s sake.

Currently recapping: Age of Youth

W–Two Worlds: The only show I’m keeping up in real time so far, and it’s SO fun to watch. The story is what sucked me in, but I can’t ignore the beautiful work Lee Jong-seok is doing so far (those eyes! Those tears! Those trembling lips!).

The Good Wife: I’m a few episodes behind, but Jeon Do-yeon kicks ass. That is all.

Doctors: I checked out the first episode this week, just out of curiosity, since I could totally use a fluffy romance right now. And…eh. I don’t see an episode two in my future.

He was awesome and I am so happy he is getting more attention nowadays.

He is proving he is more than just able to do a broody shower scene (not that I Minded those- not at all!) and villain, but also goof-ball comedy and reduce me to a blubbering mess.

Plus the guy is really nerdy/geeky cute IRL in glasses. What more can a girl ask for?

But definitely a lot lot better than doctors no doubt.On a different note, age of youth is so captivating story wise!

reply

Required fields are marked *

only one death happens. i wont spoil further. and it IS very dark. but more on an existential/cerebral level rather than like being very gory or horror esque (assuming that was your worry). I thought it was very good but not a drama I'd rewatch. It's got a very pretty cast made up of mostly models that somehow managed to be amazing (despite all of them being rookies back then) I saw great performances even from actors i normally find underwhelming like Hong Jonghyun and Kim Young Kwang.
The first episode is a very good indication of the mood/style of the drama so if you like it the rest should be fine. (the OST is soooo pretty as well)

@Tai Thanks for the heads up. This was on my bucket list for long. Definitely it's time I binge watch the drama lol. Also I am not familiar with your mentioned actors but one lee soo hyuk caught my eyes ...guy can act for real...It's unfair that he's still acting as secondary charms on rom-coms.

White Christmas is not really scary as much as it is a mindfuck ( excuse my French) in the best possible way. It's a a mystery drama. I would say watch the first couple of episodes before deciding because the first episode is kinda just setup. Anyways headsno2 recapped it here so you could check that out as well.
I can't wait to start watching Age of youth after I'm done with some real life obligations. She's definitely one of my favorite writers. I think Alone in Love is possibly her best drama but I love Mixed Up investigation Agency and White Christmas too.

JB checked it out the first week or so and had a pretty positive reaction to it. That said, I think the 2nd week lost some potential viewers (almost including me). I only recently caught up to episode 10, and, while I think it has flaws here and there, I do find it to be a very compelling watch. I'm saving the last 4 episodes for the next couple weeks when dramas are postponed.

W - same as everyone, this is the drama to watch the day each episode aired. It is just fun to watch with everyone. Episode 5 solidifies my enjoyment of it. Creation vs Creator was truly brilliant.

Age of Youth -- this is the third drama this past 12 months featuring awesome group of women. Answer me 1988 and Dear My Friends were the previous two. So, to every woman out there: Cheers to you!!! Thank you for all your stories.

Squad 38 -- I'm behind on this one. It's fun. But it's not my favorite. Seo In Guk is adorable to watch. I just need to watch the last four episodes.

I'm waiting for Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, and the many punctuation marks you can have in a title.

Needless to say that Jeon Do-yeon is simply superb as Hye-kyung, instead of the love lines I'm rooting for her independence the most.

Don't know if this is good or bad (it's BAD!), but I never get behind on dramas. If I like a drama I always watch the day it airs, come hell or high water, even if it's a mediocre makjang like Jang Bori. If I get behind, it means I've dropped it already.

This happens to me a lot too, which is weird because I wasn't always a live-watcher. There are some rare occasions when I actually purposefully give dramas I think I'll really enjoy a 4 episode head start. I did that with OMG & High School King, I think. But, if I get behind at the midway point or after only 2 eps, I usually never get back on track.

That said, I occasionally like to save a drama to marathon when I'm not really enjoying anything currently airing. This is obviously not the case now. TOO many watchable shows + a few addicting ones.

Some of the dramas I'm behind on now may actually have a fighting chance these next two weeks, what with all the postponements coming our way.

Getting behind midway is the worst! It's probably good idea to follow @blnmom lead and just admit to myself that I've dropped it subconsciously already.

I've been a live-watcher around two years and every now and then I binge-watch something that's been already aired, but I wasn't really in the mood to watch it then. For example I watched Signal this May, like in three days or so:D

Haha! GF, I'm so with you! If more than 4 ep's behind, it's like gonna be put off till later when I can marathon it. So, I try to catch up after 2 ep's, hopefully within the week. If I'm too many ep's behind and the story isn't that engaging, I might shelf it till I got nothing else to watch. XD

W is THE show of priority for me right now. Been really busy and stressed lately cuz of various things in life, so sometimes I'm too tired to watch more than one ep of anything each night. This show blows my mind and I love the fast pace of the plot plus the actors!! LJS!! This is your best role yet!!

Still gotta catch up on Doctors and Uncontrollably Fond this past week. Can't wait to watch Namgoong Min's cameo!

Bring It On, Ghost! Finally caught up on 4 ep's plus the 2 this past week from last weekend onwards. =P I like the relationship between KSH and TY, and the two funny characters are the perfect comic relief. I actually don't mind the one ghost per ep format. It gives the characters and viewers a chance to learn about the different types of ghosts and not everything is scary and vengeful.

I imagine my summer watching priority list is gonna be shaken up as new shows begin to air. Will see what's better to decide how to rank my list. XD These include: Cinderella and Four Knights, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, and Fantastic. I know W and Scarlet Heart will be right up there on the list. I'm glad some of my current shows will be ending so that I can juggle what to watch. ^^

@tinybeanie, glad that you started on Master Of Noodles, it's not the average revenge story, in my opinion it's the best revenge drama I've ever watched, i really loved the drama and the characters specially our psycho Gil Do he's a very interesting villain, every one watched the drama loved Tae Hae but as @anna said don't get attached to anyone if you could.

Age of Youth: i marathoned the drama yesterday because of the positive reviews and i enjoyed it a lot, glad it's just the begging.

Mr. Lee cousin also has 3 son, Lee Bong Pal, Lee Sang Min and Lee Min Kyu his daughter is Lee Jin Joo

I think it because the surname,
but Japanese also do the same, lots of people is Fujiwara, Yamamoto, Hiroshi, Yamamoto,
the different is,
the Korean will be Soo hyun, Soo Min, Soo Won after their family name,
while Japanese will more varied like Mao, Sakura, Ichida, Nao even with the same surname Hiroshi,
*just an example
well that's my understandings,
or maybe you are still adapting

Hehe this is what I think too. :3 The common SK name is usually 3 "syllables" and they're just a mix of short ones like Soo/Seo/Sun, Hyun/Hyuk/Hyo, Joo/Joon/Jo, etc

I imagine it's like trying to differentiate Marie/Mary/Maria/Mari when you're not used to those names?

I'm Chinese so theoretically should be used to 3-syllable names but I also struggle with Korean names because they all sound so similar to me. My resolution is to watch dramas with the Asianwiki site open because it has the actor's picture right above the name. Lol
But as soon as I've finished a drama, you can bet I've forgotten the leads characters' names within a week unless it's extremely memorable ones like Dokko Jin or I've been extremely obsessed with the drama. :-P

Omg you sound exactly like me! Haha. I'm Chinese too but I'm even more hopeless with names, including Chinese ones, if they don't have a English name as well.

I just watch and recognize the actors face but then when I want to comment, it's like I draw a complete blank on the character's name. So like you I open Asianwiki!

I was once introduced to
Hui Li, Li Hui, Hui Ting and Hui En together and by the time they had finished saying hi I couldn't remember who was who anymore. I wish real life had a reference screen like AsianWiki! ?

Omg, I'd be totally lost as well. I'm in the same boat when it comes to Chinese names. I guess that's the problem being born/bred abroad.
I'm more familiar with names from Hong Kong and thankfully they usually come with an English name, so it's a lot easier. But if it doesn't no matter whether it's a real person or drama character I'm like shoot, what was it again? Lol. Therefore watching Chinese sageuks can really be torturous (a zillion characters, complicated plot AND historical language) ?

To me it feels like Korean names are all variations on the same theme. Probably because of the Way the language is constructed regarding syllables. Have you ever seen on variety when they do that three-syllable-word-starting-with-last-words-syllable game? That would be hard to do in Western languages since word construction is based on the single letters whereas Korean is constructed around syllables and thus the variations between words might be slighter (and word endings function in a completely different way (try thinking of a word starting with the end syllable of an English word - Ing...? Ly...? Er...? Tion...? Doesn't really work.)) If that makes any sense at all LOL.

Another major thing I noticed is that kdramas don't often mention most names. They usually say 'hyung', 'eonni', 'ahjussi' etc, and the less a name is mentioned the more forgettable it (obviously) becomes.

Plus, whereas irl there might be many variations in personal names among a circle of people (Do Jin, Seung Hyun, Soo Kyung, Min Ki, Tae Joon etc), some writers favor certain syllables/letters for names thus making perhaps three with Jung, 2 with Joon, 1 with Jin (despite none of them being related), making it even harder.

And whereas Western names can be any length, any number of letters, syllables and sounds, Korean ones are 97% the same on that point.

Last, romanization isn't always logical and so the brain has to try and remember both the spelling and how it's actually pronounced (for instance the 'u' being used for two completely different Korean letters and thus sounds, making it hard to remember if it was the one or the other way it should be pronounced in a certain name).

Korean is usually in Top 10 of languages hard to learn for native English speakers and Koreans tend to have a hard time learning English. The two languages are simply so different in every way. I at least have the advantage of the vocal sounds being pretty similar to those in my language, but grammar etc is just so, so different. Don't know about other languages than Western vs Korean though, with African and other Asian languages it might be something entirely else.

So yes, anyway, all of this might have something to do with why Korean names can be so hard to remember. And now I will go somewhere and reflect on the length of my post and be ashamed LOL.

I like long wall-of-text posts. So, I'm not the only foreigner facing this problem.

Your points make a lot of sense. I think learning a few basics of korean might help foreigners like me.

@Michykdrama @angieya I use Mydramalist for that and most of the time i can easily remember two syllables of a name of main characters hence i get through all this confusion easily. Easiest solution is remembering actors faces and it works but on mydramalist most of actors pics are outdated.

Other thing that i have noticed is I can remember Characters names(b/c they are pronounced to many times in the show) But i hardly remember 5 actors names. So news-bites section of new shows always confused me who is who. Then Google comes to rescue.

I'm watching way too many dramas right now. Last week I watched UF and W Two Worlds back-to-back. I kept thinking about how drama writers often torture their characters endlessly. Perhaps No Eul should cross over to the real world, Kang-Chul style, and confront the show's writer for all the pain she's inflicted on her. I know UF is a melo, but I keep wishing for a couple of moments of levity here and there to break up the endless onslaught of pain and suffering

3 shows on at the same time that I've been enjoying (which is rare is K-dramaland), but one is almost over (sigh)...

Unit 38 - so much has been said about 38; will go down as the best written and acted K-drama I've seen since "Joseson X-Files." Lee Seo-bin is on the path of being a break-out star (one who can actually act).

Age of Youth - like the format thus far of focusing on one girl each ep, but having used bits of the other girls in the other eps to show glimpses of their characters which come together to

Han Ye-ri is the vet out of the group and is excellent as usual, but the other cast members are showing their talents and can see looking back at AoY as being a springboard of all that acting talent.

BIO Ghost - been a fun ride thus far w/ the bickering relationship btwn the leads. Ultimately, whether this show rises above being merely a fun watch depends on how the underlying story is handled for the remaining eps.

Takes deep breath..

PU38: Only got the final episode left and I already feel a 38-shaped hole in my heart forming. But I'm ready for the ultimate jaw drop.

The Good Wife: *thump* did you hear that? Yup, that was my heart hitting the floor. ? Aaaargh, I just wanted to scream while watching ep.9, why do people have the most generic passwords?! Btw LWG, why so cute?

Age of Youth: Getting better with each episode. Looking forward to more sismance/womance? We need an official word, people!

Second To Last Love The last drama I've seen KHA in was SLA, so it's still a bit strange to see her being such a hoot but I admire her for not giving a damn about her own image. KSY is totally playing himself (or rather his WGM personality) - good cook, sweet, makes the noona go gaga about him. ? I hope KSG will get more screen time now that the characters are all set up.

Five Kids: I blame all the beanies here for spazzing so much about Sung Hoon that I finally started this. Only had time for the first two episodes, so far no Sung Hoon, and I can already imagine that the FF button will be my friend for this drama.

Doctors: NGM wasn't joking when he said his cameo's going to be sad, two absolutely heartbreaking episodes. ? Looking forward to see Lee Sang-yeob next week.

Bring it on, Ghost: Thank goodness the mystery is back. Btw I wonder how often Taec will have princess carried KSH by the end of this drama? ?

W: asdfghgfdsa. Holy moly, what is this, Inception x The Truman Show x Terminator? :-P
I feel like the W-readers, just in reversed order. Thought I signed up for a fantasy romance with a bit of mystery on the side but this a freaking psycho thriller mixed with romance and horror instead. But unlike them I absolutely love it. Ha.
Oh and they better not show that hand out of screen thingy again, I'm watching on an iPad and am within reach, this gives me nightmares. ?

Beautiful Mind: I know I'm one of the very few who didn't love it. But that's ok, I've come to terms with it that while one cult show can become one of your favorites it doesn't necessarily have to apply to every underrated drama.
To me the writer was a bit overambitious, trying to juggle with too many things at once which would've been manageable but requires a very tight writing to be able to fit into 16 ep. (let alone 14 at the end). Maybe because I also couldn't get myself as invested in our hero's journey as I would like to therefore didn't manage to overlook all the flaws. But I appreciated that it was different and wished it was aired on cable for everyone's sake. And the recaps and insightful inputs of some beanies (e.g. Michykdrama's medicaps) definitely elevated the viewing experience for me.

UF: or Uncontrollably Slow
I'm supposed to cry but don't feel anything while everyone else is bawling their eyes out. But then I read the recaps and am actually touched, go...

I liked Beautiful Mind more than you, but I think you are spot on about the writer. It got better as it went on, and I thought the end was better than expected given the situation.

Monster: Golly I got what I wanted last week - Byun Il-jae in jain, and Park Gi-woong's win(even though on dark side). That was some pizza eating.lol
Doctors: Loved In-joo. I miss badass Hye-jung. Patient of the week became main plot? Cameo outshines the main casts.
Bring It On, Ghost: Ghost fighting team in uniform is cool! Vet is scary.

Uncontrollably Fond: I stay for KWB acting.
W–Two Worlds: Another wow. Can too many wows be hazardous to your health?
Wanted: So intense and sad. Glad to see emotions from everyone.

Age of Youth: lol this show is love. Funny, sad, and creepy.
Police Unit 38: yes, I laughed at the end.:) Will miss this show.

Why so many dramas now at the same time. Here Goes:

W: I just sit back and enjoy; not gonna even hazard a guess how this is going down.

Doctors Crush: It's just an easy watch with a likeable cast so why not.

Five Children: Enjoy it though going in a predictable way. I've really enjoyed all the story lines...not just you know who. ha!

Ice Fantasy: Cheesy but short episodes so again, why not.

The Ghost show whose name I can't remember: It's cute. Again likeable cast makes up for a predictable story.

Flower in Prison: Like it; still behind.

I agree with others...Yoon Kye-sang is such a man. I even watched a weepy melo for him, and it's my least favorite genre. I might check out The Good Wife if people think it ends well. Lots of good dramas out right now.

Doctors:
Show is full of fluff.... This week's episodes were the first ones I thought brought us, as the viewers, to a different place in the plot, and only because it's due to Namgoong Min's cameo and his character's story and because OMG DR. PI YOUNG GOOK a.k.a. Baek Sung Hyun *swoon* I knew it was coming, but still, when it happened, my heart *flutter*

Wanted:
I'm surprised I'm still able to keep up with everything that's going on and with everyone involved, despite all the details lol Maybe because I've had experience following a previous drama that was just as convoluted XD I'll admit, Show has kind of lost it's steam for the last little bit, but is still keeping me going back for more every week; And can I just say, I'm sure most viewers had an idea that it was coming and knew who the kidnapper/culprit is...

W- Two Worlds: I'm still only just reading recaps, because I am still refusing to pay for Viki Pass/Premium on Dramafever and don't want to risk going on a sketchy site to watch in case anything happens lol But maybe the postponement of episodes (Noooooo! I know!!!!) will help in getting me started/all caught up

The Good Wife: Somewhat same situation with "W-Two Worlds", the only difference is that Viki/Dramafever don't even have the drama up on their site DX So I'm still only hanging on by reading recaps from here, which, thank you, recappers!!! Hye Kyung is LIFE. Enough said.

Uncontrollably Fond was stronger than W for me this week. (Please don't hate me!) Don't get me wrong, W is exciting and moves really fast but there was so so much exposition this week. The conversation between Dad and Kang Chul occupied like half of episode 5. I felt like I was being told what was happening rather than shown it, so in the end the emotional pull of Uncontrollably Fond won out for me.

Poor Joon-young, his whole family seems terrible, including his mum who resents him because she unfairly bases her love life around her son's career. Someone should really pull a W and transport him out.

well for me, from beginning, UF is very moving for me. Despite there is alot of fluffy scene for such a LKH drama. (Well I'm just such a cry baby after all. That's why I love melo. LOL...) It's well told story.... It's not as fast pace as nice guy, but i like it better. Though UF does have flaws, with lesser acting performance from the lead compare to Nice Guy. KWB is good, It might be best performances as an actor (I watch heirs, he act better here). But he is no SOng Jong Ki. I really hope though he will star in a challenging roles like this from his future project. He will improve tremenduously.

@missjb, IMO, Song joon Ki wasn't better than KWB in Nice Guy. If anything, episode 10 proved me, that KWB actually doing better and he also created better chemistry with Suzy, than SJK with MCW. Also this year KWB definitely won me over with his role more than SJK with his. I hope KWB will not be scared to take challenging roles like this, just because drama is doing moderate.
@Ren Also, how scary it is, that you need to apologize over liking UF this week more than W. I bet you wouldn't even think about saying, not to hate you if you said, that W better than UF. It's says something.

W - next ep 7 I got about 55% through the comments on ep 4 at work! I read the rest on the way to therapy and then watched ep 5. And recovered during ep 6. I'm so sad we have to wait a few weeks after ep 7.

Bring It On, Ghost is slowly losing me. The ghost of the week formula doesn't bother me, it's the fact that I feel like I'm not getting what I signed up for. The posters, the teasers, even the first two episodes made it seem like it was going to be an exciting Ghost Hunters-ish show with comic elements... but recent episodes have changed directions completely and now it just feels like a run-of-the-mill rom com that just so happens to have ghosts in it. Everything happens during the daytime, the ghosts are losing their frightening edge, Hyunji is annoyingly petty and clingy and there are even amusement park dates now. I'm totally snoozing. ...Sigh... I just thought that it was going to do something totally different and give us a fresh take on dramas but it seems to be crawling Ring-style back to the status quo.

Pinocchio was so beautiful back then. I love every scene and romantic scene almost mde my emotion turn to roller coaster.

Love DOCTORS. Light romance drama with a lot of moral value abt family and love. And their kiss in the rain was so beautiful, their scond kiss scene was too hot to handle. But i love pinnochio first kiss a bit more (the ost played important role of course). Dr jihong is sooo charming for a guy and i wish i have someone like him by my side (jjaebal). Im looking forward for their lovey dovey scene for ep 15&16. I guess the plot will be fast since the drama will end soon. Haramunyi cases, i hope the evil one gt their punishment!

W, the first 4 episode too much exciting but i watched just a half of ep 6 ( i'll try to accept the black face one come to real world but then i imagine all of batman and superman will come out to hunt the black face. Huhu) .
I love jongsuk expression when he was so frustrated knowing he come out from manhwa (at bookstore) . I will watch ep 6 again with no thinking logical fact. Aja2 W!

I usually just watch 1 one currently airing drama but at the moment I am following (usually binge watching over the weekend) 4 dramas

W - watching in real time.I wasn't a fan of any of the actors,just got intrigue by the plot,ended up being awed by LJS (and his facial expressions) and HHJ (such a fangirl) and hooked by the story.

UF - almost dropped this one. I guess Im really not into melodramas.but I still watch it just to find out how the drama plots will be untangled and KWB's acting.

Five Children - got curious after seeing SH/SHS in HT3.binge watched to catch up on Ep 30ish. I feel kinda disappointed with how the story's turning out right now.The extension might not have been well executed/plotted.

Doctors - dropped it by Ep 9.will watch NGM's episodes.Anticipated it for the storyline and LSK during the teasers but now the story might not be my cup of tea.

I'm surprised to realize it's my first time to watch a drama with PSY,KWB & LJS, I know missed a lot.

Doctors- Loving it until the last episode with Namgoong Min. I didn't like Beautiful Gong Shim and its too soon to bring him on this show without me still thinking of that cheesy drama. His Doctor's story is touching and he's doing a great job.. just too soon. The rest of the cast is great. Loving the side characters. Want more of them. Also Yoon Kyun Sang is adorable! I love his lines and delivery. Definitely on my must watch radar now.

Bring It On, Ghost- gone.. maybe if this was October and in the mood, but no.

Where is Good wife playing?
