Anyway I was desperately in the mood for a rom com so I started What\’s Wrong with Secretary Kim. I\’m going in completely blind but half way through the first episode seems off to a good start.

This drama is doing something really interesting with the dynamic of childhood best friends/first loves/unrequited feelings and I like it a lot.

    Double uh-oh, I took these screen caps just before they had the cutest little scene talking to each other about the girl they both like without either of them knowing it’s the same girl…

    There are going to be tears before we’re done here, aren’t there?

I\’m looking for recs for the fluffiest, sweetest, least angst filled drama you\’ve ever seen.

    I really recommend Bad Family, there is a bit of angst and the style is really out of date but it is one of the best drama surrounding a “chosen” family, everybody starts out part of the family because of personal selfish reasons but the little girl at the center makes them all grow up and become a real family for her.

    Something About 1 Percent (2016) was a cute fluffy watch. 16 episodes, but they are shorter. (Ha Seok Jin)
    You Drive Me Crazy is a drama special (2 one-hour episodes). Recent one, cute.
    Go Ho’s Starry Night – a web drama, really cute, practically no angst. I recommend watching the shorter episodes, not the compiled version (they cut out some scenes there).

I\’m in one of those fussy moods where I want to watch something, but nothing I start is what I\’m in the mood for.

Suggestions, beanies?

One of my favourite parts of the A Love So Beautiful novel was Xiaoxi complaining about the ridiculous things the clients at work make her do because that is also my life.

Started watching Fight My Way after seeing a beanie (sorry, I can’t remember your @!) post a photo set from the first episode on the fan wall.

It’s really cute! Friends to lovers gets me every time.

      Half way through episode three!

      It’s so good, the leads have such amazing chemistry – it really feels like they’ve been best friends their whole life. And all the ‘I’ve got it bad for you but I haven’t worked it out yet’ moments have me sitting here cackling with glee.

I\’ve started reading a fan translation of the novel of A Love So Beautiful.

They really did change a whole lot for the drama adaption, huh.

    *SPOILERS*

    I do like that in the novel their kiss at the hospital comes after they agree to get back together and it’s mutual, rather than the drama where it’s honestly verging on assault.

    That being said, adult Jiang Chen in the novel is somehow more obnoxious than in the drama. You ask to get back together then immediately give Xiaoxi a list of chores you want her to do for you? I’m sure there are cultural differences at play but like… come on.

A Love So Beautiful has given me the biggest drama hangover I’ve had in a really long time.

Any suggestions for dramas with similar mood/themes?

Did a whole lot of bingeing and finished A Love So Beautiful.

I have a whole lot of thoughts (spoilers beware).

    It was really cute! I really like stories about friends growing up together, and it has that lifelong friends-to-lovers trope that I adore. I shipped Xiaoxi and Bosong really hard early on, but I lost a lot of enthusiasm for the couple when Bosong didn’t back off after Xiaoxi made it clear she wasn’t interested and that his actions were making her uncomfortable.

    I came around to Jiang Chen a little, but I’m still not super on board. Also I’m still really mad about both kisses while they were broken up. The first time he made her think he was cheating on his girlfriend with her, the second he was treating her for a head injury not even an hour after she told him she didn’t want to get back together!

    I love Xiaoxi and Jingxiao, both as individual characters and as friends. I wish I’d had a best friend like Jingxiao when I was a teenager. I love how open and direct Xiaoxi is. I also really liked seeing her reunite with Li Wei at the wedding, that was such a sweet moment.

      Those are my exact thoughts on all the characters. Bosung seesaw-ed between intuitiveness and obtuseness.

      I didn’t feel the romance on Jiang Chen’s side either, at least not until episode 22 and episode 23. All the cute was completely one sided.

      The friendship of the two couples was very cute, but I felt Bosung was often pushed to the side in their friendship. Jingxiao had a very big sister/motherly vibe in her friendship with Xiaoxi which I appreciated.
