Btw, The K2 is on Netflix and it shows me a clip every time I log in…It’s tempting me to rewatch but I can’t…Too many dramas. But its one of my top top favs at #4 on my list.

    A lot of people didn’t like K2 but I personally really liked it and am also tempted to rewatch. I just wish they didn’t have the romance in it as I found the relationship and interactions between Kim Je Ha (Ji Chang Wook) and Choi Yoo Jin (Song Yoon Ah) so much more compelling and interesting then with Ko An Na (Im Yoon Ah). The romance felt completely unnecessary and shoe-horned in. Yoon Ah also couldn’t carry her weight next to the much more skilled JCW and SYA. But outside of the poorly done romance I loved everything else about K2.

      Yeah the romance was the big flaw. But even that had some cute scenes. I also remember not liking the PTSD aspects of both of the leads because they didn’t make sense.

Even though I enjoyed Be Melodramatic in the 2nd half, I was unsatisfied by the ending.
So, I wouldn\’t recommend the drama, but I definitely recommend Hell is Other People <3

    May I ask what disappointed you? Because I also had a few issues with the last episode.

      Well throughout the entire show, the writer/director relationship and their characters in general annoyed me. They were immature and over-the-top. But other than that, I really liked the other love stories but they were left incomplete. Where did that love interest even come from in that last episode for the one with the kid?? And it really annoyed me that the one dude (who was shown to be her love interest through the entire show) will possibly end up with his ex again…it was a really unhealthy relationship and it should have just ended. Really, the story line that really got me to watch the drama was the documentary director and her trying to get over her deceased boyfriend (which was hard because he was so perfect). And then her finding a guy that’s in the same place mentally as she is. Oh and also the celebrity/body guard/manager relationship 🙂

        I find it interesting that you found the characters immature and over-the-top. Because that’s EXACTLY how I’d describe them but that’s why they are so relatable to me. They’re like overgrown kids, and that’s pretty much how the unmarried urban youth is in my life (I’m also btw, just a few months short of 30). I’m pretty much exactly like these characters. 😀

        Different perspectives & all that, just wanted to say I have the same words but I use them fondly because they’re so relatable to me.

          I understand that XD I’m the same age, but my personality is closer to the characters that I liked, so I don’t relate to the writer/director storyline. But yeah, it depends on the person watching, who they’ll relate to or won’t relate to.

    There are definitely some things that could’ve been done better with Melo’s ending and some things definitely confused me. I loved it but I wouldn’t defend what went wrong with how the last ep and the characters were set up because it also took me some time and some rewatching to accept the ending.

    Glad that you’re still enjoying LMHYS but I’ll warn you that the show (sadly) drags from ep 11 onwards. And yay! Rookie Historian on your list!

      I would like Be Melodramatic a lot more if it wasn’t for the writer / director story line. I don’t like those characters, but they seem to be the main focus :/

        I agree, but I’m trying to ignore their excessive immaturity as much as possible. I hope as the drama progresses their characters settle down a bit.

Does anyone know what those relaxation/calming pills are that characters in k-dramas are always taking? Is it actually a thing? I want some.

    It’s a legit thing. In Korean, it’s called Cheongsimhwan (청심환), in Chinese, it’s called Angong Niuhuang Yuan (安宫牛黄丸), and it’s made up of a number of herbs made into a paste and formed into a gumball sized pill for you to chew and swallow. It supposedly helps with a various list of things, one of them being the nervous system, which is why it’s PPL-ed in dramas as something people take to calm nerves.
    I’m pretty sure if you do a little bit of digging, you can get some off the internet. Maybe try Amazon??

      Thank you so much! I was wondering if it had all natural ingredients since they seemed over-the-counter in k-dramas. I’m going to look into them more.

        I know that I’m Canada, where I live, herbal meds (more considered as full on Chinese medicine, where traditional Korean medicine stems from) and organic meds is sold completely different and at different locations than western meds— apothecary verses pharmacy. It might be a different situation with SK and it’s ways of selling meds, over the counter or not, and it may be that SK pharmacies sell both, traditional already-packaged meds (i.e. over-the-counter meds) AND western prescribed/-over-the-counter meds 🤔🤔

          Oh ok Yeah, that make sense

          I’m in the US, and Chinese medicine is sold separately as well. But I think in most places in China, both traditional and “pharmacy” meds are sold in one place. South Korea might be the same.

      So when I googled it I found a link to someone’s twitter with photos of Jin taking it before a tv performance. Tidbit for BTS fans.

Struggling through Hotel del Luna. The only part I enjoy is the sageuk flashbacks. IU has more chemistry with those characters.

I saw that people were saying that Perfume is getting better as it goes so I picked it up. I had extremely low expectations because of what others had said about it, but it\’s actually not bad or insulting in my opinion. Just those sound effects in the first episode are so dumb and out of place. I\’m glad they stopped that.

I was warming up to accepting Young Gu as Da Da\’s boyfriend but then she was physically assaulted by a man and he just stood there like an idiot. I would have attacked that dude like a feral cat. Ma Wang Joon is now ahead in points for atleast doing something…but seriously, press charges.
