Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

So, what are we all watching this week?

What kept you reaching for more (or agonizing when there was no more), and what made you want to throw your remote through the screen? Time to weigh in…

Age of Youth 2: If I’m wrong about this I will be angry, frustrated, and massively disappointed, but I sort of feel like the writer has been stringing us along with the Song/Sung-min couple and will now drop all sorts of deliciousness on us in the finale week, so I’m pumped for the last two episodes. At the end of it I will either be squealing in giddiness or screaming obscenities.

While You Were Sleeping: On hold. I feel like I would like this show under other circumstances, so it doesn’t quite feel fair to the show to force myself to watch it now when I’m not receptive to it. Let’s hope I’m in the mood someday, eventually.

Temperature of Love: On hold, indefinitely. This show doesn’t induce strong feelings in me and has been easy to watch—but on the other hand, I don’t really get anything out of it.

My Golden Life: Dropped. I tried, and it isn’t an anger-inducing or angsty show so I could have kept going with a little effort… But the people in this show don’t act like real-life human people, and I find the interpersonal logic strange and off-putting. Did aliens write this trying to mimic us?

Currently recapping: While You Were Sleeping

Age of Youth 2: I feel like I’ve spent as much time watching fake movie trailers for the romantic comedy version of the Song/Sung-min love story as I have watching the drama itself, which I’m not sure is a point for or against the show. It’s all ending too soon, but I’ve also come to terms with the fact that Age of Youth will always feel that way no matter if it’s 14 episodes or 40, because of the way the story is told. I am really satisfied with Ye-eun’s arc in this season though, and will keep hope alive for the final week to give us closure for all our girls.

Temperature of Love: Romance: Take 2 is happening with more ease than I expected, which is definitely a plus. I guess the upside of the initial romance not being all that deep is that there’s less angst than a traditional breakup, leading to a pretty smooth rekindling of old feelings. I just wish the drama about the drama writers wasn’t so dramatic, but it’s an otherwise breezy show with good banter between the leads.

Currently recapping: Age of Youth 2

While You Were Sleeping: I like it! The whimsical dream metanarratives are shaping up to be more complex, and I love the teamwork among the dream-seer trio to figure it out. I really like the nonlinear storytelling, with the flashbacks, dreams, and present-day storylines woven into a themed episode. The game with fate reminds me a bit of W–Two Worlds (because Lee Jong-seok is making me biased), and I’m a bit afraid that these narrow escapes from fated events will catch up to them. But until then, I’ll just enjoy our dorky leads and Mom tallying the points for handsome police vs. handsome prosecutor.

Hyori’s Homestay: I found myself gravitating to more episodes because of how poignant and beautiful they were. Jeju is sooo pretty, and Hyori’s reflections and love of yoga reminded me to indulge in the rare serene moments, if not physically then mentally taking a break from our fast-paced lives.

Circle: After assiduously avoiding spoilers for months, I finally watched it! Thanks to some long hours on a plane, I pretty much binged it in one go—which I’m thinking is the best way to watch because I don’t know how I would have handled those cliffhangers. And I loved the show! It definitely lived up to my expectations and more, and I wish we could have more such sci-fi shows in the future. Maybe a second season? Because I was wondering why we hadn’t focused on the fact that this is alien technology but that final scene made me go, “Yesssssss let’s do this!”

Forest of Secrets: I don’t know if I wasn’t in the right frame of mind when I was watching, but after all the hype this show got I was actually mildly disappointed that I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. It was a well done show and everyone involved should be proud, but like Shi-mok, I just couldn’t seem to connect to it emotionally.

Temperature of Love: This writer isn’t generally one of my favorites, so I’m not too bothered that the first few eps didn’t really grab me, although I think I might be more invested once we reach the current timeline. Even though I don’t really care about the main romance right now, I love all the minor characters, and I’m definitely going to keep watching for my darling Jo Boa and Handsome Oppa of the Cut-glass Cheekbones.

Manhole: Well, that ended. At least Jaejoong is still pretty?

◾◾ Dramas (This picture of Kim Ki-Doo he was the master of laugh for me ㅋㅋㅋ in Strongest Deliveryman)
◾ Temperature of chemistry : it’s still hot 🔥😍 Ep9-12 I was relieved with Hyun Soo voiceover in ep9-10, but Jung Sun voiceover in this ep11-12 was heartbreaking, a dark cloud is coming 😟. Regarding the leads chemistry : wow it always surprises me and I fully enjoy it 😍 ㅋㅋㅋ. Swoony moment in the cold room : that almost kiss 😍 , I was hoping/saying "door please be closed" 😆
◾ No other drama : I’ve put Rebel Thief on hold again it’s good but I’m not in the right mood to appreciate it, so I’m in a drama slump compared to my usual schedules, but next week Revolutionary love will start 🤗 . Two "on hold" and one "dropped" from @javabeans *there there*

◾◾ K-shows
◾ 4th week w/o Infinite challenge & I live alone, new ep for 1n2d but edited by higher officials 😒. Fighting to strike members 💪, hope things will change !
@dramallama : Hyori’s Homestay is one of my favorite shows , I’m glad you’re enjoying it 😊.
◾ 1n2d Ep195: I’m glad they edited the trip shooted before the strike : new 1n2d stuff 🤗
but at the same time higher level staff left Yoo Il Young PD out 😭, that’s not the real 1n2d 😭 . It was so funny seeing Kim Jong Min, Kim Jun Ho and Defconn taking turns in making fun of Jung Joon Young and Yoon Dong Gu who were no.5&6 in terms of popularity 😮. Of course after seeing Dong Gu all the girls started to rank him higher : in the end look is what matters 😂

◾ 3 meals a day S4E8 : After failing many times Eric & Lee Seo Jin managed to catch a fish, they missed Yoon Kyun Sang a lot during their fishing time🙃. Dinner was fish & pork ribs : that was a lot for 3 servings 😵, it was like 5-6 servings 😂. The trio played a hidden camera on Lee Jong Suk : that was hilarious 🤣 : Lee Jong Suk had a mental breakdown thinking Yoon Kyun Sang wasn’t there, whereas Yoon Kyun Sang was so nervous and the other two actors Eric and Lee Seo Jin made funny mistakes and couldn’t stay focused 😂. Moral when actors make a hidden camera : they can’t act 🤣
◾ Law of the Jungle ep283-284 : Roy Kim and Dindin were a hilarious duo, Roy Kim just like Jung Joon Young he can be such a scaredy cat 😂. Haven’t watched LotJ since a long time but 1st time w/o Kim Byung Man it’s tough 😨. Thief Roy Kim and resourceful Choo Sung Hoon, finally they did it : FIRE 🔥 Roy Kim was running like a little child 😂.
◾ 1% friendship ep1-2 : it’s a 2-ep Chuseok special , the concept from Soompi “Two people with contrasting personalities will be paired up and spend the day together.” Guests : ep1 Kim Jong Min & Seol Min Suk ; ep2 Bae Jung Nam & Ahn Jung Hwan.
I’ve watched the 1st ep because I know Kim Jong Min from 1n2d and Seol Min Suk was the history teacher during the Learning Korean history special of Infinite Challenge. Both of them share the love of history and knowing how different they are made me curious. I was shocked by Seol Min Suk strict diet (he ordered milk in a coffee shop 😵) and his age, he looks a lot younger, then I was shocked in a total opposite way with Kim Jong Min diet : basically ramyun/noodles for each meal. Nice surprise was that Seol Min Suk is Hong Jin Ho’s fan (The Genius😎 🤗) and thanks to Kim Jong Min he made a video call with him : awkward, cute and funny 😂. Just like in Infinite challenge, I appreciate learning Korean history and even more from someone passionate like Seol Min Suk. Side note : Kim Jong Min just like Kim Jun Ho have a bad influence : just like Dong Gu starting to be corrupted in 1n2d, Seol Min Suk gave up and shocked Kim Jong Min (and all viewers) by eating a lot of junk food at once 😂.
Regarding the 2nd ep with Bae Jung Nam & Ahn Jung Hwan : I don’t know the 2 guests very well and I...

Circle: Technically, I'm rewatching it because I refuse to let Reunited Worlds be the last thing I've seen of Yeo Jin Goo. Also, I want to see how Circle holds up to a rewatch and so far, it's pretty dang good. Coming back to life is a lot better when there are aliens involved.

Liar Game - I kind of put in hold because I got distracted by LUTYN and Lingerie Girls Generation but now I've picked it up again and appreciating Shin Sung Rok's EVERYTHING. Also, yay for a hero who can go toe to toe with the villain. And yay for a villain who's intelligent but also balls-out crazy.

Let's Meet Joo Oh - It's a KBS drama special starring Jo Bo Ah and I remember seeing the trailer and really liking it so after I got sad about the fact that she keeps getting relegated to bitchy second leads, I went to Youtube and saw a whole bunch of clips. It has no subs (as yet) but funnily enough, I can understand the dialogue passably enough and she and Son Ho Jun are pretty dang cute together. I hope to find the full version soon somewhere.

Girls' Generation 1979: Huhuhu... It feels 8 eps too short. What I really love about this drama is the way they use the ensemble characters to tell stories about friendship, family, and love  from many different POV. This is also a drama without antagonist, because everyone is only flawed human who is capable to change and learn from their mistake. And this brief experience with the opinionated Seoul girl would definitely become a longlasting, precious memories for them all.

Age of Youth S2: Seems like the writer is hell-bent on making us worried about a certain girl's future fate this week. Repeating other beanies, if there's irrecoverable damage happened to our resident girls and boys by the finale eps, there will be hell to pay writer-nim.

While You Were Sleeping: I can't seem to stay away from Park Hye-ryun's drama because despite convincing myself I only need to read the recaps, I ended up push that play button after all and the rest is history. The fantasy element in this one is more complicated than in her previous dramas, but it isn't convoluted (yet), so it makes for an interesting watch. I just wish Yu-beom is more on a morally gray area with his own internal struggles rather than simply unlikable, because it would make him that much more compelling as a character.

Three Meals a Day S4: Ep 7-8. Seo-jin ajusshi made me busy fangirling again with that huge, delicious mammoth bread. I can't believe that Jong-suk is actually so adorable and shy in real(-ish) life. This is like the first time I realized that Kyung-sang is a hyung (and an oppa for me). Somehow, he feels like a forever maknae in this program.

I agree you about YB in WYWS, so far he has been despicable. While I like this writer PHR, but I think so far her best drama storyline-wise was I Hear Your Voice. In IHYV all the characters were complex, and even the villain (who I hated) was complex. However I will hold my judgement on WYWS, because this show is only 4 eps in, and I feel that it has a lot of potential. So I hope that it will live up to it.

I think Forest of Secrets is compelling because it makes the characters and their motivations complex. It doesn't have the simplicity of a cast of "always good" and "always bad" characters. This is rare for a k-drama.

It was twisty but usually logically so. No glaring leaps of reality.

The quiet dramatic moments (not so many yelling, over the top conversations) and inner conflicts were extremely well done. Tonally though, it is heavier and somewhat unrelentingly serious - few (no?) comedic interludes and there was no bromance or romance to speak of.

If you're into warm and fuzzy, lovable characters, warm families, romance and easy to hate villains, this drama is probably not going to be satisfying.

But it was still for me something already deja vu in other kdramas. I thought it was new, inovative, but it was like copy & paste of the best parts of other kdramas with some western type of storytelling. It reminds me of the book edition noir which I'm reading now ( It takes me like 5 months to read it - one thing is it's a french copy, but usually I swallow books in 1 or 2 days) by Nela Neuhaus "Les Vivants et les Morts." Maybe I'm just in the time when even Dostojevsky would annoy me.

FOS is probably illustrative of two things.

The sum is greater than the parts. Each individual element is not innovative but the entire drama is well constructed, plotted and acted.

It was better for what was left out rather than put in. The drama didn't need filler subplots, makjang, and ridiculous twists of logic and out of character behavior.

I couldn't get into "Forest of Secrets" either, and the same thing happened to me with "Signal" which I dropped after the first 4 eps.

I guess different strokes for different folks...

For me it took about 5 to7 (can't quite remember) episodes before i got into signal, that was after a break where i went to watch other stuff. Everyone else kept on raving about it but it was too heavy at the time and i just couldn't get into it. So afyer watching other dramas and going back to it, i enjoyed it.

Well, pretty much a dry quarter in dramaland since the School 2017 has ended, and then Live up to your name has ended..
But, but, but...
While You Were Sleeping has caught me hook, line, and sinker!!! I just love how it's all put up, the plot, the main leads, the twist, the suspense.... I just love it!
And then, I managed to finally start Reply 1994. It's so hilarious. I cannot stop grinning from ear to ear... I'm still at the early episodes, so I am savoring the moments... lols.
I am kinda of limiting myself to only watch 1 episode per day to not ran out of something to watch before I sleep.

Are you watching Reply 1994 on Netflix? If so, DON'T! I was so happy when it was available on Netflix, but the subs totally killed / ruined it.

Lingerie Girl's Generation: That was a cute ending. I was so convinced she was going to choose Jin for a second, I was actually screaming at her, and now I'm embarrassed that I fell for such an obvious trap. I wasn't completely happy with this show (Where's my thriller sub-plot, huh?) but it proved to be cute and a surprisingly interesting character study.

Temperature of Love: JUST KISS ALREADY.

While You Were Sleeping: I expected the heroine to be the most compelling character from the introduction, but Lee Jong-seok has already stole the show and ran off with it. Then again, there was never any doubt that he would outshine Suzy.

Age of Youth 2: I'm too exhausted for a Season 3. Pleeease just wrap up the stories I love in a satisifying way. I beg of you!

Overprotected Kahoko: I loved this at first - Takahata Mitsuki is hilarious and acts with her entire body - but we're falling into stupid territories now. Mum, stop being toxic and let your daughter live her own life - you're more immature than she is.

Ah Kahoko she is just too cute trying her best to make the family together again.. i was so glad that i picked this gem randomly because it had high ratings.. the show was super sweet with sad moments at the end.. I know mom is overprotective but i love when she finally understand Kahoko and be the bigger person at thr end, ah i love all the characters ( except maybe a little with ito lol) when will i get my Hajime-kun... I gave it 8.5, everyone should watch this..

I find Overprotected Kahoko is a series for the entire family and also for the mum to realised that she is allowing this to happen and she is not protecting Kahoko as she thought.

Therefore, I really like to see the mum being extreme and realised that she needs to see what is wrong with her.

Required fields are marked *

Watching mom so controlling in Kahoko's life was so suffocating, because at the end she gives Kahoko more harm than good. But good thing is, this drama is not only about Kahoko's journey, but also her parents and possibly her family as a whole (couldn't say the same for Ito tho, because I cant handle her and her whines). I do love Kahoko and Hajime but I do think its too early for them for you know what...but considering the length of this drama, I'll let it pass. It is enjoyable drama, and I am glad I found this gem here.

Age of Youth 2 : I am going to refresh JTBC Drama YT channel like crazy tonight. GIVE US SSONGSUNG couple moments. I will hunt down the writer if I am not satisfied and also #teamseason3

TOL : I wish JungWoo would love someone who can love him. He is so nice it hurts me to see him sad.

WYWS: the funny moments are so cringy. Otherwise I love the mood of the drama. Suzy is so pretty!

Found myself watching mostly variety shows these days:
Phantom Singer 2– They have finally reached the quartet round where I have reach eargasm with the beautiful harmonies sung by all five groups. There were plenty of goosebump moments, but I'm still waiting something powerful and emotional to make me cry like how Lilac did with "Look Inside". I like Forest's cover of Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" and their performance was excellent, but I preferred the "Tornera L'Amore" and "Anche Se Non Ci Sei" cover renditions, which
I listened repeatedly to. Can't wait for next week's performances, now that they randomly mixed up the group once again.
Baek Jong Won's Food Truck – I really like shows with before and after transformations. Here, I like how they tackle everything from food recipes, preparation method, truck signage, customer service, time management, etc. A lot of good tips and advices for people thinking of starting a food truck business.
1% of Friendship – I hope this show gets a permanent slot cos' I find it interesting to see two persons with opposite characters and lifestyles trying to get along with each other. It's funny to see Ahn Jung-hwan feeling super awkward towards Bae Jung-nam who's like a bull charging headfirst, trying his best to get Ahn Jung-hwan to warm up to him. Oh, the fitting sessions were cringe-worthy and hilarious. Gahahaha.
Problematic Man – Ah, it's nice to see them recording outdoors and having fun, but I guess they all knew better that it's a trap. Can't wait to see them completing their missions in a haunted school. Funny that Tae-min is all "I LOVE THIS SORT OF STUFF" and Jun Hyun-moo's face is all "I CAN'T DO THIS SHIT".
Three Meals A Day: Pasture by The Sea – How awesome that Andy and Minwoo came to join them as guests. Died laughing at how the three guys tried so hard to look for their guests, who are just right under their nose and even blatantly put up clues for them, yet they fail so bad.
Night Goblin – It wasn't aired last week so I'm anxiously waiting for the coming episode. Hopefully Chun Jung-myung will get more comfortable with the other members and we get to see more reversal antics :D

I'm kind of sad that there aren't really that many dramas that I want to watch anymore. They all recently finished, and those that are left I can't really get into. I WAS interested in Temperature of Love, but mostly because I was interested in how the female lead (and male lead, I guess) would handle a subtly increasing possessive second male lead-slash-antagonist. (Maybe I'm looking for something that resembles Seven-Days Queen to fill that hole in my heart?) However, if he will only be the puppy guy who thinks he has a chance only to get hurt but then get over it, I can't really see a big point with watching it unless something interesting happens.

I watched the Chinese drama The King's Woman, and it just kind of ended strangely and almost felt like it ended tragically just for the sake of tragedy. But at any rate, that is also now over.

My favourite drama is period dramas, so the fact that the latest sageuk (Live up to Your Name) is over also kind of bums me out. Hopefully a new one will arrive in a few months.

For "Temperature of Love", how do you know that the SML will only be the cliche puppy guy? I mean Jung Sun's monologue at the beginning of this week's ep talked about the SML's rage, which means that the SML could very well crossover into villain territory as the story goes on.

I don't know, that' why I said "if". It's just a fear I have because having the "bad boy" change because he likes the female lead while she likes the male lead is used a lot, and while of course he shouldn't get the girl as a reward for not being a douchebag I still feel sorry that he changes for someone he can't have.

I definetely hope he'll cross some sort of territory, but I felt the "rage" could also just mean that he was angry and hurt at Jung-sun and tried to briefly be a villain, but then the bromance would be back on for some reason.

Now that the thoroughly enjoyable Live Up To Your Name has finished, I'm watching My Golden Life. First time I've watched a long drama, and I'm wondering whether I should've let some more episodes build up. It's got its hooks in me even though the plot is simple.

Gonna wait on While You Were Sleeping, Black, The Package, and 20th Century Boys and Girls to finish airing before binging them.

I'm finally re-picked Live Up To Your Name after putting it on hold and have 6 epi to go. I'm quite enjoying it but not really loving it. It is quite a nice drama, but I think if the male lead is not Kim Nam-gil and someone that I'm not fond of, maybe I won't watch it.

For the current drama, only Age Of Youth and recently ended Girls Generation 1979 that I actually watching mainly for drama, not the casts. Temperature of Love - I'm enjoying and loving some parts, but again I think there is some magic or spell by Seo Hyun-jin made me love her drama. Maybe that's the power of love.

Anyway, I'm not sure if I'm actually in drama slump because I think I'm not, or probably I'm in denial.

Maybe you're in a medium drama slump ? not as serious as javabeans or other Beanies who don't watch any drama at all.

I am in something worse than a slump and it's got nothing to do with those dramas. Yeah, I was so enjoying Save Me, right?

Only AOY has defied the odds and still manage to get me watching.

I wanted to pick up on Save Me, but.. Like I said, maybe this kind of plot works better for me if it is a movie or drama special with around 4 epi.

LOL! I don't think I've actually been in a drama slump. At least not as bad as what @javabeans is experiencing. I remember not being in the mood for dramas for just a couple of days...if not a wk. But that's the longest. I always come back to the episodes I've got on pause. Right now I'm forcing myself to not watch any dramas (which I think is different from a slump?)...

LOL I think it is because you have less free time nowadays so you have to force yourself to limit drama you're watching. I have been in this way for several months already this year so I don't think it is a drama slump, but maybe I have reached my limit. lol.

I think less free time may be the culprit.

I was busy with some work and stuff this week. Instead of following my schedule to watch TOL and WYWS, I lapsed into this 'pick up whatever I fancy' and that led me to just indulge in my current craze. I am not even trying to watch any of the current dramas now.

Temperature of Love : Waffle Oppa <3 I want more of him on screen but I like to see the other leads too. I don't know what Jung Woo is up to, but I hope nothing bad is coming.

Age of Youth 2 : Eun Jae's breakup was so pitiful but needed ! Seeing a quick appearance of Chef made me so excited. Eun and Jang Hoon are adorable. Ye Eun's arc is satisfying and when will we get more of our favorite couple ?

While You Were Sleeping : First Love Oppa <3 I like this drama more than I thought. I hope there won't be any plot twist on Woo Tak's side. I want my Three Flying Dragons to remain together.

Manhole : I survived because of Jaejoong's prettiness.

Rescue Me : I'm actually happy for Sang Mi and the boys but the ending felt anticlimactic. Anyway, Seo Ye Ji, Jo Seong Ha, Jo Jae Yun, Park Ji Young and Woo Do Hwan gave amazing performances.

I still have to catch up to Hospital Ship, Live It Up To The Name, Lingerie Girl's Generation and Strongest Delivery Man.

Watched Legendary Shuttle (! ep Kdrama special that's been on my list for a while) today. Surprisingly enjoyable and funny. Lee Ji-hoon was amazing as expected (I loved him in Mirror of the Witch). And it's got Kyung-woo too (from School 2017; a.k.a guitar boy)! It's a great watch for a lazy weekend...especially with a lot of drama slumps opening up like wormholes!

Age Of Youth: I don't enjoy this season as much as I loved the last one. I don't know if it's because I'm watching it without subs or because I was looking forward to it for so long it ended up disappointing me or if it's because I just can't connect to the story as much as I would love to or as much as I did the first one. The only characters whose stories I seem to enjoy are Eun and Ye-eun.
Hospital Ship: Ha Ji-won is still the best thing about this drama. I feel very attached to her character and she has definitely made the list of my favourite kdrama women this year, but I feel like all the other characters just exist to enhance her story. Lee Seo-won is absolutely, unbelievably terrible in this show. His character is so unfit for him it makes me cringe so hard. I love Wang Ji-won, but I hate that she keeps getting this kind of roles when she can do so much better in a good role. I like Kang Min-hyuk but he's such a terrible fit for Ha Ji-won's love interest like I knew he would be. I would have rather preferred if he and her ended up being just friends. Also, every time Wang Ji-won calls him oppa, I die laughing because it's so very cringeworthy.
While You Were Sleeping: Suzy's character is another one that has made the list of my favourite drama women this year. I love where we are at right now in this show, I actually like the characters and I love their relationships with one another. I really wish Kim So-hyun was more than a cameo though.
Andante: Still enjoying this drama. I feel like I know where it's going but it's a pretty easy watch.
Next week brings more dramas! Looking forward to This Is My First Life, 20th Century Boy and Girl, Revolutionary Love, and Avengers Social Club.

Haven't catch up to Hospital Ship yet. Well, in the first episodes it seemed like the story would be around her character and the other characters wouldn't be as developed. It won't stop from watching it (from a hopeless Ha Ji Won fan).

While You Were Sleeping : I liked Suzy's character too. Many second hand embarrassment for our leads and lovely relationships.

Goong -- this drama totally surprised me. I am in awe of the production scale for a drama made a decade ago. They went all out. Even for a semi-fictional world, the staff made sure they were telling the story appropriately. Great job.

Not only that, the characters are someone we can root for. Shin Chae-Kyung is one strong, adorable heroine. I understand why she would fall in love with the crown Prince even though he is a jerk sometimes.

My first drama is Boys Over Flowers, and I loved the concept of chaebol experiencing the life of ordinary people, including the ramen. So, I am shocked that this came from Goong. Heck, so many tropes of BoF came from Goong. That just makes BoF even more cringier, despite being the best drug I have ever consumed.

I felt Goong dragged on a bit in the end, but ditto those thoughts about the awesome production scale. It really brought the manhwa to life. I remember being in love with all of Shin Chae-Kyung's clothes. I also remember thinking how I wasn't on board with Yoon Eun-Hye playing Shin Chae-Kyung and didn't like her acting in the beginning episodes, but she improved a lot by the end of the series and won me over.

I am watching Ms, Temper and Nam Jung Gi, which is streaming on Netflix under the title My Horrible Boss. 5 episodes in, I really like it, though the depiction of sexism in the business world is so terribly accurate sometimes.

Netflix also had what they are calling Strong Girl Bong Soon so I can watch the cute parts easily. The music is different in places and I think the editing too.

As everyone could probably tell since I commented and gushed over any Lingerie Girls' Generation post ever, I loved the show. Maybe a year from now rewatching it I'll see some flaw, but it's been so long since I lived watched something that never disappointed me that I'm still on the 1979 high.

Is there an evil witch somewhere casting dry spell on dramaland? Coz it really feel that way these days.

Age of Youth: Please end well. Please end well. Please end well. Not putting too much hope on Song-Min ship since they're still stuck in that friendzone circle, but by now I'll just take whatever hints they would give me that they are going to be okay in this end. Wrap it nicely so I won't throw things at my screen.

Lingerie Girls' Generation: Sad this little show ends coz now I have one less show to look forward to. Dong Moon is all kinds of adorable and the epitome of "work hard enough and you'll get what you want". Jin on the other hand - Too late, dude. You should appreciate what you have in front of you.

While You Were Sleeping: I like it a lot, but blame the dry spell that I couldn't click past episode 2. For now. Perhaps I would marathon it later. In the meantime, I'm avoiding the Beanies wall for unwanted spoilers.

Temperature of Love: Stone-cold here. Dropped after 1st episode. May or may not come back depending on mood.

Looking forward for new shows next week!

Only watched Temperature of Love and Live Up to Your Name so far. TOL is a lovely, breezy watch. I adore this show. Besides the lead couple, the side characters are nice too. The Good Soup bromance is blooming.

LUTYN was an excellent drama. Loved it. <3 One of the most mature, evenly matched couples I’ve ever seen. Strong chemistry between the leads and the characters were written well.

Decided to get back to watching unfinished dramas. I had to skim the recaps and rewind a few scenes of Duel last night for like 30 minutes to refresh my memory. Then it got too late at night so I ended up not watching anything. LOL XD;;;

Temperature of Love vs. While you were sleeping -
both are fun,entertaining and interesting. Sleep needs to polish its characters. and room temperature is the requirement of love.
7/10 to both.

Hospital Ship - torture this show is. 6/10.

Doctor Stranger - Surprise. watch 1st week and story is interesting.
Many more nonsensical dramas have aired in 2017 itself. So i don't think DocSt deserve this kind of criticism

Girls Generation 1979 - I liked it, very nice job from the Ms. Perfect screenwriter (which shows that maybe she is better at adapting than creating ??)
Whike you were sleeping aka 3 Flying Dragons - I think I would never have enjoyed it if LJS and the police officer (sorry can't remember them names) were just ordinary people. As for Suzy, I am pleasantly surprised by her, although her co-stars are better 😅
Age of Youth 2 - Hopefully the subs for episode 13-14 will be done when I am finished with 10-12.

From Next Week :
Mon-Tue
20th century boy & girl - I feel like I've been waiting for this since forever.
Because this is my first life - Will check it out in reviews or comments before watching it.
The rest - Pass

Wed-Thu
Mad Dog - I was born ready
B(whatsisname) revenge club - Waiting. Want to watch immediately. Who subs this.
wyws - will continue watching.
hospital ship - pass.

Girl's Generation 1979 : I'm sad this drama is finished. I loved the nostalgic touch with the great OST and the great characters. It was well written and the casting was good :)

Temperature of Love : If I'm not a big fan of the second leads (too cliché for me), I like the main couple. They're interesting and have a lot of chemistry !

Hospital Ship : I'm not interested by the medical part, but the relationships are really warm. I like the fact that it's about family, friends, coworkers, lovers without time travelling, super power, conspiracy, corruption... Just about people :)

WYWS : I'm very interested about how works their power but I don't like the comedic part (it's not natural for me) and the romance .

Age of Youth 2 : I'm frustrated how they tease us about Sung Min and Ji Won >_<

FINISHED

Live Up To Your Name: I liked this show. I really did. It had a mix of almost everything: light hearted moments, heavy moments, and great character growth. I come out of this show becoming a fan of both our lead actors--huge bias for Kim Nam-gil. Being honest, I don't feel sad that this show is done. Maybe because I think its a good show, not a great show. It could also be that I wasn't really emotionally invested in any of the characters that much. Or maybe it was still running when Temperature of Love started.

Together With Me: Ah, this BL Thai drama. It started off interesting and innocent enough, then it went to stupid and drawn out, then it caught itself in the last episode. At least it ended well. If they do a sequel to Bad Romance that focuses on Korn and Knock but still includes the couples in this series, I hope its better. It can be better. At the end of the day, I love that this drama showed a couple that had really good chemistry. They reminded me of the vibe I got from Addicted, ish.

ONGOING

Temperature of Love: What I love most about this show is that unless the writers and actors spell it out for you, there are so many ways to interpret Jung-sun's actions. Has he been lying to everyone else and/or himself? Does he want to scream, "noona, come to me!" I think it's that I love Jung-sun and, by extension, Yang Se-jong, a little too much. I hope I'm not overselling him but Yang Se-jong is a phenomenal actor. He absolutely sells me as a chef. I think that's one of the main things that makes me love this show so much. I'm a foodie and this show makes me giddy with everything food and drink related. I both love and hate that this show is a M/T drama. It's like a satisfying aperitif to start the week. 😄

Given some of the lukewarm comments about the show, I just hope that it continues to do well with all the new competition coming next week.

PICKED UP

It's the start of the Fall Anime season! There are so many shows to check out. I will make the rounds for this week and the next two weeks or so to see if anything catches my interest.

Drama wise, really looking forward to Lee Min-ki's return drama, Because This Is My First Life. Will try to watch all the other premiers as well seeing as I only really have one ongoing drama atm and it feels weird.

I can understand why javabeans would put While You Were Sleeping on hold. Still, I had some time to kill a couple of days ago and ended up binge-watching all the episodes in one go. Two things I learned from this. Number 1, I still got it ;) I am still physically capable of binge-watching a drama. Yeah! Take that older age. Number 2, I didn't think this drama was going to be good, I was ready to ditch it at any time, and I didn't. I just chose to forget that the two main leads are Suzy and LJS, and boom, enjoyment plus. This plot has gotten so complicated, in a good way, and I can't wait to see what the writer has in store for us.

Age of Youth: one of the few things that inject a bit of joy into my tv/drama viewing slump. I think I needed that apple picking episode as much as our heroines and heroes. I'm going to be really sad to say goodbye these girls, of whom I grow prouder with each episode. We were so fortunate to get a 2nd season so soon. Hoping for a 3rd feels a little greedy.

While You Were Sleeping: I sort of share javabeans feelings about it. So many elements that I like about it (playing with alternative futures, the 3 flying dragons, likable minor characters) and Suzy isn't too bad in it, but it doesn't feel like the drama I need right now, though I can totally imagine myself obsessed with it, perhaps in an alternate timeline? Can't decide whether or not to put on hold.

I never went back to watch the final episode of criminal minds, so thanks to Saya for recapping it.

Almost all my fav shows are ended, so i go back to american dramas..

While You Were Sleeping
Actually im in my last semester so i was gonna end my watching drama activity when Age of youth 2 ended but this show just pulled me in, and now i regret it cause im hooked.. I love all the characters except YB lol even JC co-workers are fun to see. I hope WT doesn't fall for HJ instead they keep this like bestfriends forever story ( because he is for me lol).

This Is Us
Premiered last week TIU came back to tease us how Dad died. The first and second ep show us that behind the perfect dad image jack actually has a problem (and stuck for 2nd time) and to see that he willing to change so bad for his family made me cry, same goes to Rendall i just wanna hug him everytime i see him i'm glad that he has such a perfect wife like himself.

Age Of Youth 2
It will ended tonight and boy i'm not ready to let go.. All the girls are so sweet (even when i dont really like Eunjae now)
Their stories are so relatable, and the bond are so strong ( in real life too) .. I just hope the final give us conclusion of Ssong problems (about Hyojin and especially Sungmin..) and some new story will unfold, left a possibility for third season.
Please drama god , please make this last forever or at least give us 3rd season..

I know I'm late but it's better than never seeing this heartfluttering drama.

And should I bother to watch the last five episodes of Criminal Minds? I think it would be better to watch Signal (which I have not yet seen).

While You Were Sleeping. Stuck at episode 2, trying to find the motivation to press the play button.

Anyway, I'm prioritizing finishing Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.

Marathoning Blood. I heard such bad things about this drama that I never took it up until now. Now that I have, I wondered why I formed an opinion without watching it for myself. It’s surprisingly interesting, love the plot. acting and actors and can’t for the life of me understand why it had such a bad rep in the first place.

Other than that I’m enjoying While You Were Asleep, Hospital Ship (which has slowed down its pace) and Andante.

Andante is really how High School dramas are supposed to be. I’m two episodes in, but I’ve found in it much more realism than School 2017 so far. Keeping my fingers crossed that it keeps being interesting.

Blood had a bad rep because people seem to hate on Gu Hye-sun for some weird reason. I didn't finish Blood myself, but I watched about 6 episodes of it and really enjoyed what I watched.

So happy to find some dramabeans readers are also watching Andante. It's my guilty pleasure every Sunday night (I wait for the subs since it airs Sunday mornings).

Gotta sign on to agree with you there, GF! Watched soooo many fake movie trailer between Ji Won & Sung Min. Every time Jtbc put up their trailer, they ALWAYS put Sung Min's face there. They KNOW what they're doing!!! Stringing us along.... for the potential 3rd season. I see why they did it - I just don't appreciate it. All this craze on Sung Min, and them not delivering feels like they're unintentionally taking away from the Hyo Jin storyline. As a viewer, I probably should be more invested in the Hyo Jin Story... but I seriously am just waiting for Sung Min to show up... I can't help it!
