Beanie level: Noble idiot

Picked Absolute Boyfriend back up because I wanted something light and without personal investment in the story while waiting for episodes of the other dramas. But now I’m caught up with that drama so I’m trying out The Best Chicken also XD

You guys seem to be liking Search Query: WWW. I had a hard time getting through the 1st 2 episodes. I just can’t take this drama as seriously as they seem to want me to. So dramatic and trying so hard to be cool. I won’t drop it just yet though; it has potential.

    While there was a lot I liked about the first 2 episodes, I get where you’re coming from. It also came across to me like it was trying too hard, but I still enjoyed it. I hope they tone that down a bit in coming episodes.

Just when I got bored with Live Up To Your Name, something interesting happened. Still don’t think the lead male’s character makes much sense and I’m not about that ‘back and forth between good and bad’ life.

I Loved You From The Start is super cute.
Live Up To Your Name has gotten a bit better since the boring 1st episode. But it is still using bathroom humor and stupid sound effects. I’m hoping they’ll stop with that soon (Black started off that way too).
Mary Stayed Out All Night was fun, although fanfic-like. However, I found myself liking the 2nd male lead more by the end…oh noooo D:

    I’ve watched Mary Stayed Out All Night an embarrassing number of times. 😅

    Mary Stayed Out All Night had too much episodes. Half of it would have been enough because the obstacles weren’t that huge for the leads if I remember well. Even Kim Jae Wook as the second lead wasn’t a threat and it would’ve been better to make him more sympathetic before the last episodes.

      It needed more episodes though. We needed more bromance since they left it to the last episode. And more Jang Keun Suk and more Kim Jae Wook. Lots more. They could’ve started a new band together.

      Yeah the 2nd half got repetitive with the same misunderstandings and issues happening over and over. I think cutting it down to 12 episodes would have made it a strong drama…and would have kept me from getting second lead syndrome.

    Forest Of Secrets isn’t for everyone… i couldn’t get past episode 4 and it actually took me forever to GET to episode 4 because I kept taking breaks from it because of not being able to feel invested in it

I just watched the first hour of Dan, Only Love and it grabbed me immediately ^o^ I wasn’t expected the plot to be what it is and I like the female lead a lot. Great 1st episode and I hope it will continue to be. Hopefully this will put an end to my drop streak.

    Do not drop Live Up to Your Name!! It was excellent. One of the most satisfying and mature relationships I have seen on screen. Plus Kim Nam-gil is a hoot!! If you still feel like dropping after a few more episodes, ok, but do try and give it chance 😉 I really enjoyed it!!!

    I LOVE Live Up to Your Name! It is one of the best of the recent dramas to me. I have rewatched it more than 20 times, and I know what you mean. I ff through or skip half of the first episode every time.

Ok…after much deliberation, I think this one is my favorite from the Reach of Sincerity OST. Photographs and What If Love were close but Make It Count wins because it’s fun 🙂

    Go watch Go Back Couple right now! It’s so good! If you want happy though, you might want to skip the first half hour. Basically they’re both unhappy with their marriage and you can cut to the time travel bit.

    I can’t speak to The Best Chicken, but none of the other dramas you are contemplating are strictly “happy” dramas. Go Back Couple and The Light in Your Eyes are probably your best bet. I cried throughout Go Back Couple, but I SOBBED near the end of The Light in Your Eyes – the end was so beautiful. So, be warned that for the most part they are light and funny, but have some seriousness thrown in. I loved both of them, so I think either would be good.

So Possessed became the most depressing thing ever. Thanks for reminding me why I don\’t watch horror.
-Possessed, Ep. 15

    I know what you mean – it has become excruciatingly painful to watch in all it’s darkness. As a person who lives in the US and we hear way too often about shooting rampages the last couple of episodes were almost traumatic. I watch kdramas to let go of the real world.
    Please let us have a happy ending please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don’t waste your time with The Best Chicken. Other dramas on your list ate definitely worth watching.

      It’s on there because it’s only 12 episodes. Seems like the same plot as Panda and Hedgehog but I ended up dropping that one. Thought this one may be done a bit better.

Kill It has a great style; K2/Healer feel but…not liking the show-off/annoying female lead so far (with those ridiculous scenes XD)

Love in Sadness is weird and the female lead is dumb but the suspense is keeping me interested.
Possessed, despite the bad subs, is keeping my attention due to the interesting leads and unexpected unfolding of events.
Reach of Sincerity needs to develop those side love stories more.

    How bad is Possessed sub? Is it as bad as Children of A Lesser God?

      I haven’t seen that one but it’s like the audio was run through google translator. So when a noise is made, it may translate is to a random word. Slang and idioms are not going to translate right either. Knowing some Korean is definitely helping me out, but I don’t know how far I’ll be able to get if there’s going to be a lot of heavy dialogue in the future.
