Beanie level: Errand boy

The only thing I want or need to know about Just Between Lovers is Junho is the male lead. He absolutely blew me away in Chief Kim earlier this year, so I have little reservations here.

In the grand scheme of my drama–& any other tv show/movie–viewing exp, there are 2 types of shows: the ones where I pause all the dang time & take x2 to finish, & the ones where time flies.

Two mins. in and I get the feeling that Black Knight is going to be terrible. I was really looking for a good supernatural drama. Guess I’ll have to wait for Hwayugi, fingers crossed!

    I’m putting my hope on Hwayugi too.
    I watched part of BK but it was boring. I’m surprised at its rating tbh.

    Yep! At least Temperature of Love had a good start, but this one went down the drain pretty fast.

    Vivid proof that exotic places, and a yet-to-be-revealed mystery cannot save something from bad directing, dumb script, aweful lead chemistry, and outreagous music queues … seriously! ><

    Wow! At least I survived 7 mins! Hwayugi will be a blast. The teasers seem really good without giving much insight into the story which I prefer.

    @fay17 Glad it’s not only me. I managed to finish 1 ep, but didn’t bother to continue. K-dramas, please. If you have the budget to film abroad, please do it significantly and properly. I mean, KRW lives in Slovenia but he rarely talks in local language and even worse he talks in Korean? It’s so awkward and hard to enjoy despite the beauty.

    I really hope Hwayugi won’t be a flop. My first love’s comeback has to be awesome!!

      Lol yeah, they shoot abroad to create a grand impression, but I feel like it wasn’t necessary plot-wise, and the story is kind of all over the place. And the OTP meeting everywhere is happening too often to call it a coincidence. :/ Seems like goblin opened a new door for fantasy dramas lol.

        Well, I’m happy that K-drama producers seem to get many offers on collaborating with other countries to promote tourism. I think that’s a good approach and certainly effective. The problem is that setting the story abroad doesn’t necessarily make the story good, which quickly burns viewers like us who have seen great dramas with and without international setting. I don’t have enough info to say that it feels like Goblin as some other people say, though. LOL OTP meeting everywhere sounds like stalking to me!

          I said it feels like goblin haha. I can’t point it out but it does seem to me that it’s a mixed up of lots of fantasy elements picked from various dramas. Just my feeling of course. But even that’s not a problem. I am not a fan of SSK and her acting doesn’t really bode well with me, I think with any other actress it may have been great. :/ And yeah agree with what you said regarding international shoot location.

            A few of my friends also say that, hahaha! No worries. I think you have a point that the drama mixed up too many elements. It would have been better if it opens up layers one by one.

I feel so completely inundated by dramas on my to watch list. It’s not just the new premieres but dramas I’m trying to catch up with that I missed earlier in the year–Circle & Stranger.

One of the better fight scenes I’ve seen in a K-drama in quite some time. Clever use of lighting & angles. I guess it’s more that I’m happy that the camera shots weren’t choppy/all over the place.

Some comics/manga/manhwa/graphic novels/dramas have been know to have pretty awesome quotable lines from time to time. The best part out of an otherwise meh premier, Pt. 1/2.

The brilliance of Stranger/Secret Forest lies not just in its script, and acting, but in its tone.

Thanks Netflix for bringing/getting shows like Wise Prison Life. Having said that, you’re really annoying me with your subs switching ppls names with first name first. It’s confusing me!

Saw this on my YouTube feed. At first I thought he looked really different this year but he kinda looks the same-ish in this vid. Hair style makes a huge diff. Wonder what he looks like with a beard.

I think this drama just might have won my heart for favourite romance drama of the year. That’s a hard thing for me to say given my love for Tomorrow With You.

Kinda like they’re renewing their vows without it having to be a wedding/marriage.
