Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

I blinked and it’s suddenly July, which means that there’s a whole new crop of dramas appearing on the horizon. I’m actually a little sad that the current drama cycle is starting to wind down, because it’s a good batch of shows, and I think we all have the panda eyes to prove it. –girlfriday

Currently recapping: Seven Day Queen

Circle: Goddamn, this show rocked my world. Between this drama and Seven Day Queen I’m already content with 2017. Perhaps Circle isn’t everyone’s thing, and that’s a valid opinion (…which is wrong!), but for me it was a perfect show. I loved that even with the clever plot and twists, it didn’t forget to have a heart—ultimately, the story was driven by love. And while I never wanted this show to be about romance, I was happy to have romantic hints at the end—one, because romantic love is a powerful human motivator and that’s a lovely sentiment in a drama all about what makes us truly human, and two, because it felt like a sign that life could finally move on. I bawled buckets, the show ended, and my heart was full.

Father Is Strange: Joong-hee knows! Yasssssss. I mean, maybe he doesn’t know everything and maybe he’ll talk himself out of his suspicions, but now he has a real reason to doubt his birth story and I’m glad. And while it’s too bad that Unni’s marriage is struggling right now, I really appreciated the way she handled the conflict and wouldn’t let it be swept under the rug; she’s principled in a way that I admire, in a way that it’s difficult to live out because it’s so tempting to let things slide and trick yourself into thinking, “It’ll be different now” when you know deep down that nothing has happened to change things.

The Best Hit: One of my favorite types of gags that this show does is in playing out a joke in the background while something serious is happening in the foreground, and not drawing any attention to the joke—it’s there for you to notice, but the show doesn’t point to it and call out, “Look, I’m being funny!” Sometimes it’s funnier to let the joke lie there quietly, even if it goes unnoticed by some, because the discovery feels special.

Lookout: I didn’t realize that I wanted the two prosecutors to team up until they did, and then it just seemed so right. I was surprised that Do-han revealed his hand at this stage, and a little nervous because there’s plenty of time left for things to go sideways. But it was satisfying to see him finally show his real feelings for once, after putting up such a smarmy facade for so long.

My Sassy Girl: As far as angst tropes go, this week’s new arrival was a nicely effective way to make Gyun Woo and Hyemyeong really feel that pining for each other. I actually enjoyed how it pained Gyun Woo to have to translate another suitor’s wooing words to her while being unable to say them himself, and wished that this show had that extra touch to make me feel that pain viscerally. It’s kind of a connect-the-dots drama, though, so I appreciate what it’s doing while not necessarily feeling it in my heart.

Suspicious Partner: The separation was entirely warranted and understandable within the context, but also completely predictable, so I’m waiting it out because I feel like when these two are in resistance/denial mode, the show’s momentum halts. Now that Ji-wook’s revisiting his old memories, I’m hoping we’ll get the plot-ball rolling again, and also wrap up this serial murder case that feels like it’s run out of steam already. Can’t we just go back to what the show does well, which is bumbling Bong-hee being adorably awkward and the cuteness prevailing?

 

girlfriday

Currently recapping: Seven Day Queen

Suspicious Partner: Did they really need to push each other away again? I really dislike the my-father-killed-your-father-I-must-leave-you trope, unless there is actually a murderous, traitorous father and we’re in a revenge or historical drama. In so many cases, it’s used as a crutch to motivate a separation and a misunderstanding that feels contrived (because no fathers did any killing), and it really bugs me. Whatever the opposite of dramaland catnip is, that one’s mine.

Fight My Way: The girlfriends made me cry this week. There was just something about that flashback to their childhood, when we saw how little Seol-hee came over an hour early every day before school just to do Ae-ra’s hair because she didn’t have a mom—when Ae-ra described Seol-hee as her mom and her ocean, I cried. I was proud of both girls this week, and disappointed that Ae-ra was talked out of taking that plunger when they went to confront the cheating assholes.

Duel: I really wish this plot would move at about twice the speed it’s going, because I find each new revelation about the clones interesting, but at this pace I feel like it would take two seasons to get the story I want. I expected that the daddy-daughter relationship would be the heart of the show, but the more I watch, everything else is tangential to the three Yang Se-jongs because, well, there are three of them.

Lookout: Key and Kim Seul-gi are such a bright, happy spot in this dark drama, and even though I didn’t start watching the drama for them, they end up stealing the show whenever they get a little moment together. Is it too much to ask that the priest get more scenes too? I know that mystery is part of the allure, but let’s not be stingy about it.

The Best Hit: I kind of want 150 half-hour episodes of this drama, High Kick style. It could just go on and on, with no deep logic behind the time travel and the story traveling at a snail’s pace, and I would still love it just for the laughs. Okay, the laughs and Yoon Shi-yoon.

Circle: Well-played, Circle. Everything about this drama felt thought out and painstakingly blueprinted, and the result was extremely satisfying to watch, like watching a Rubik’s Cube lock into place once it’s finally solved. But what made me happy was that the core emotional conflict of the two separated brothers always remained at the center of this universe, and that we were allowed to really savor the big important emotional beats and cry all we wanted. I went into this finale week with sky-high expectations, and I was not let down, which is frankly pretty shocking.

 

HeadsNo2

Woman of Dignity: The plot took more shape this week, and I’ll admit to being ever-so-slightly interested in Bok-ja’s journey to become head of a very rich household. But it’s still a completely joyless affair, and based on the first scene of the show, I have a feeling that the biggest takeaway will be: Life sucks, and then you die.

Forest of Secrets:  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥.

My Sassy Girl: Why, Joo-won, why? Even in his sparring scene with the prince, the prince was giving us so much narrative information through his facial expressions, and Joo-won was just mong. I desperately want to say it’s the writing, but I just don’t know anymore. Either way, I’ll go down with the Team Dalhan ship.

Circle: So… good… brain… broken…

Forest of Secrets: LOVE. Jo Seung-woo never ever disappoints. The writing and directing of this show is so assured, and the story continues to be complex and riveting. That rare flash of a smile from Shi-mok was everything!

 

 

tineybeanie

Currently recapping: Circle

Fight My Way: Oh no! Seol-hee makes my heart hurt in all the right ways. All her work toward her dream of becoming a good mom has been destroyed and her world has been shattered, but her tears aren’t for herself, but for Joo-man because he cried. I both want to shake her for her inability to stand up for herself (well, up to this week’s episode), and hug her in a warm embrace for all the pain she’s going through, and I think Ae-ra feels the same, seeing the way she stood up for Seol-hee against Joo-man at the intern’s apartment lobby. I know this might not be a popular couple, but I’m interested in how they’ll figure out their problems and how it’ll pan out because I think it’s a realistic situation, where no one necessarily is morally a bad person (like Hye-ran), but everyone just has opposing interests that leads to pain.

Currently recapping: My Sassy Girl

Seven Day Queen: This show really has me in the palm of its hands. It goes so seamlessly from suspenseful to cheeky, then suddenly sorrowful to romantic. And I am here for all of it. I’m always kind of waiting for a drama to turn on me, and prove that it isn’t as good as I thought it was, but this show keeps surpassing my expectations. I love how laser-focused the storytelling is and how it never really deviates from the central story it set out to tell. A lot of sageuks like to create a sense of grandness and space in the world of their drama, so they overload the story with an excess of characters and side plots, which makes it easy to get distracted. But Seven Day Queen is not messing around one bit. This show is here to get the job done, do it flawlessly, and let you worry about the fleshy shrapnel in your chest where your heart used to be.

 

tipsymocha

Circle: Ugh Yeo Jin-gu, why you gotta break my heart like that? But tragic as it is, I kind of like that Circle went there with what happened to his character. It made for an interesting, albeit brief, moment where 2037 Bum-gyun had to put his money where his mouth is in terms of whether memories are what make the person who they are. When they mentioned that the clone was Circle 8-III, though, my heart broke all over again because I don’t want to think of what happened to 1 and 2. Is it masochistic of me to hope we get some more backstory into them in Season 2? Because there will be a Season 2, right?!

Seven Day Queen: Man, I’m loving this reversal. I’m not sure I like the whole prophecy-dispensing bit in the show, but if it means Chae-kyung keeping some (but not too much) distance from our prince while he tries so hard to get back in her good graces, I’ll take it. The show is setting the girl up for failure, what with her promising honesty to the paranoid king and both guys expecting her and her father’s loyalty, so she might as well enjoy all the swoony attention from Yeok while she can. And Yeon Woo-jin does swoony attention so well.

Saying goodbye to Circle this week. The ending feels anticlimatic, and I'm a bit disappointed by the clones plot and how they drop the alien plot altogether then use it at the very end only for an open ending. It's still a good show though, even if I'm not as emotionally attached to it as other beanies.

Still watching and enjoying Duel, Fight My Way, and Best Hit. This week eps are so satisfying.

-Crime Scene 3: Eps 9. I knew it. Makjang cases always fits variety format better. The weirder the characters, the more outrageous backstories they have, the more fun the casts have while playing them. And I love all their hilarious banter. I just wish Jang jin could take a part in that super dysfunctional family.

Seven Day Queen Anti-bromance might be my new catnip, a super fortified catnip laced with crack. Also, whistling Yeok is now my spirit animal, and my spirit animal is on the other side of the wall begging me to go outside and play (queue dream sequence)
My open letter to the cast of Forest of Secret
To Bae Do-na: Thank you for being the nurturer. I am eternally grateful that you fed our poor boy.
To Cho Seung-woo: Your smile is more rewarding and sexier than any shower scene, but please don’t let this comment stop you from ever doing one.

Fight My Way I think I have figured out the parental archetypes for the 4 leads:
Ae-ra –Mama Grizzly who will die protecting her cubs
Dong-man -the dad who will always think despite knowing his daughter’s bullying tendencies she will always be the most adorable kid on earth
Seol-hee –the enabler mom who sees no fault in her kid until that kid goes to jail
Joo-man –the breadwinner who underappreciates the family and justifies all of his douchy behavior with the excuse of going through mid-life crisis

Circle The moral of the story is that the onscreen charisma of Yeo Jin-goo will stunt anyone’s memory.

The Best Hit If I ever do some time traveling on my own, I have to make sure that I pack a flash drive full of GIF of Yoon Shi-yoon’s faces of shock, grump, disgust, delight, and ALL the aegyo. Never mind, I will just Human-B them into my brain.

Father Is Strange Unni’s lawyering against the tabloid reporter is the sexiest thing I have seen all week. The least sexy: any scene with her mother-in-law, and boy there are sooooo many.

Suspicious Partner I need my syrupy rom-com cake back with extra serial-murdery icing on top. This girl wants her cake and her blood sugar getting dangerously low.

"4) Ji Chang Wook and Nam Ji Hyun, please date in real life, thanks."
I dropped by the shippers thread on Soompi and I was like, why are there only 7 pages? This ship is practically self-sailing. Lol, but seriously, I think Ji Chang-wook is probably this adorable to all his co-stars which makes him endlessly shippable. He's like a male Kim So-eun or Park Shin-hye with how many ships they have both created.
The only thing that keeps me watching SP is their unflappable chemistry (the very thing that makes me tired of the leads in FMW, or maybe it's because I just don't like Park Seo-joon that I can't feel the chemistry), the curiosity to find out why Hyun-soo became a murderer and recently, to see if Ji-hae and Eun-hyuk will hook-up.

I love Park Seo-Joon and even I can't feel the chemistry. Still watching it tho cos everyone loves and underdog story. But since the begining I feel the interactions between PSJ and KJW were kinda forced. I think they both need to loosen up a bit (I saw the BTS and esp in the begining, they were just not hitting it off or were doing their own thing mostly, although they've started to warm to each other now so far into filming, but it's just too little, too late).

I have literally only now started Tunnel where everyone is in winter wear while current dramas I am watching everyone in summer wear. It is so jarring yet as my panda eyes prove there is just too many quality dramas this year to miss. I have yet to finish its predecessor drama Voice with me watching halfway thru ep15. Just 1.5 episodes to go.

Suspicious Partner am I the only one who feels the trope is so overused. Kinda getting lame the storyline. Hopefully, Hyun Soo wakes up an amnesiac. Medical inccuracy, always not good to take out your oxygen mask and IV drip.

Ruler of Your own Mask, so much critics for this drama but I am watching for Yoo Seung Ho, I am so happy he is taking on dramas per se, as he gets older, and national service out of the way, he may just jump into the movie world and it may get harder to see him in dramaland.

Fight Your Way is just so nice, but I feel so the Seolhui-Jooman couple. Maybe, it is no good to start a relationship young and feel it wither out when you reaching a more stable part of your life. Everyone changes and hope for bigger dreams, but Seolhui just wants to keep her dream of being a mum alive and Jooman with her.

That's all. Need to start on Lookout, I only caught episode 1.

I am about to start Circle. Guess I found out the ending.

Just signed in to say thanks to last week's comments started Forest of secrets. Fantastic drama and not disappointed so far. This drama even made me miss this week's Fight my way and SP.

I started Good thief and bad thief skip fast forwarding but it is so cheesy and the female lead's acting so glaringly obvious that I was basically gaping at how I was believing all the Forest of secret's world. And did not even notice the actors acting. That was how believable they are.

Guess I will now start Circle. But guess the ending is gutting if Tipsymocha mentioned a clone version 3.

But good golly Forest of secret is so good that I can't believe I have never seen a drama like this. It's not only the acting, it's the editing. It is so slick and seamless.

Fight my way had me sniggering so much in the 1st episode last night. I don't actually know where this show is going and don't care.

More unusually, I can't be bothered about a non-existent love line. This show is so good I have no interest in it being ruined because of doomed loveline.

Yes, it's so so good. Don't get me wrong. I like Circle and Fight My Way, but they all pale in comparison to Forest of Secrets. I'm even ready to go to the end and claim that it is the best kdrama of 2017.

Also, pardon my almost pathological need for romance, but I think a loveline wouldn't hurt. It's just that I want my tragic puppy Hwang Shi Mok a happy ending. But I would still love the show regardless!

Omg, yes. I'm glad you said something, because if there was a priest like that in my formative years, I would have converted to Catholicism. And gone to confession twice a day. How can he just smolder onscreen like that? I thought it was just the black robe at first, then maybe the haircut? Stoic expressions? Would he be sexier as a villain? Yes, I've spent an inordinate amount of time thinking out him. ? I'm on episode 13, and am dying for slimey Do-Han to reveal himself. I love how smart his character is and how Kim Young Kwang plays him--with just enough flair for him not to be annoying as the insincere brown-noser, and with just enough angst for him not to be overtly depressing as the mastermind with the painful past.

Haha They are fictional likes/dislikes thumbs ups/down. They shouldn't affect anyone. Better enjoy them. Whether we rate a show A/B/C Grade is our personal views and feelings and we aren't imposing any of it on anyone. But few snowflakes take can't comprehend this simple matter.

Circle - lacks logic. from the 1st scene writer forces you to accept the heroine as alien and after that you can't question anything at all. from living bug to chip installed in 2017 and going virtual reality by 2022 and clone success and much more. You just have to accept it. I feel Circle has too many overly dramatic crying scenes. Hero is giving competition to seol-hee and Ae-ra in crying department. Story also relies too much on foolishness of characters. That's why i have given the show B GRADE.

Also a bit disappointed by SP. I feel like show was supposed to be a 16 episodes drama but they stretched it out to 20.

I guess I can go back to watching The Best Hit and Forest of Secrets. I was watching them as well and was enjoying them too but they kind well to the wayside when Circle began to consume me whole.

I loved, loved, loved Circle. Please let there be a follow up.
I'm about halfway through watching Answer Me 1988. Even though I already know what's going to happen it doesn't stop me getting upset when I actually watch the show.
I caught up on Fight My Way yesterday. The break up had to happen and I'm waiting to see what follows. I love how honest Dong-man is with Ae-ra and I found the scenes with his dad quite poignant.
I hadn't realised before that Suspicious Partner was going to be 20 episodes long and I wonder if that's why it seemed to go off the boil. Hopefully now our serial killer is back that will inject more tension and pace for the final episodes.
I'm enjoying the chess game that is Seven Day Queen as we move into the next phase of the story.
The Best Hit is so good for the weekend. I'm looking forward to watching last nighht's episode. I caught some of it without subtitles and it looked like Hyun-jae is going to be a love guru. Hee hee.
While trying to decide whether to start Lookout or Forest of Secrets I actually ended up watching Taiwanese drama, Bromance. Megan Lai is probably the best girl disguised as boy I've seen (though her cries were a bit girly) and acceptance of the male/male couple from friends and families was nice to see in a drama.

I haven't watched this week's suspicious partner episodes yet. Because it's gone into angst territory and I never thought I would say this, but my interest is slightly waning.

I watched fight my what's this week's episodes today and I have to say the parents (except for joo man's family) in that drama are awesome! That show is as much about family as it is about friends.

I loved seven day queen this week's episodes until the last few minutes. That really upset me. Now, I am not enthusiastic about them getting married. There is a going to be a lot of confused feelings and angst. :(
Why would yeongansun do that to the only person who genuinely liked him and cared for him? Especially if he made chae kyung spy on Yeok and if she agrees to do that thinking it will obliterate his suspicions on Yeok, I would be so mad. Did she forget how he told if she wants him to die she can go ask for help? But Yeok and chae kyung's courtship scenes were sweet, especially the part where she puts her hair up. Also, badass chae kyung who wields swords? yes, please!

I want more Yeo Jin and shi mok investingating together scenes in this week's forest of secrets. Also, if we get to see shi mok smile, that would be awesome!

Much as I love SP, I agree. I waited much longer this week with the episodes too because of my least favourite type of angst. I was hoping the show would subvert our expectations, but alas.

I think you would like Lookout. The mommy-guilt is strong with the heroine and motivates her actions which struck a gigantic chord with me--for obvious reasons. And Suji is literally kickass and probably the strongest female lead I've ever seen in a Kdrama. So, I know it's not on your list, but I'd hate for you to miss out on such a great drama.

@michykdrama - Third Rate Fight My Way and Lookout are my go-to dramas right now. Both are so good in completely different ways.

Unfortunately, my interest waned in Suspicious Partner (I don't watch right after the subs come out anymore) and Ruler Master of Mask did not live up to the hype and the glorious casting choices. I still watch SP though and follow Ruler in DB's recaps.

Watching :
Lookout - DH, you have a plan, right? RIGHT????
Also the priest gives me camera love vibes. Put this piece of hunk in a drama soon!!

MSG - I love you Joo Won. However, as much as I like Oh Yeon Seo, I would never ever watch this drama if my JW was not here :(
Yes, I have a slight 3rd lead syndrome, no I still don't give a flying f#$& about the second leads.

Suspicious Partner - I am soo behind at this. But for the first time in a while I am liking warching a drama slowly.

Forest of Secrets - I got into the train this week. And I'm never going back again.
Just watched the first 2 episodes, and No Way is he not feeling anything. That man has more feelings than feelings themselves.
And I love Bae Doona's character. When was the last time a female lead was a bad-a$$ without making a big deal out of it, and strong without seeming a total witch.
I love their professional relationship right now and I know I'll probably start to crave romance (but not for our 2 leads) later on :P

Exactly. I have a massive crush on Yeo-jin. Badass female character usually feels "rough" and a bit out of this world (well, maybe because I don't meet many of them in real life), but she feels very relatable and not too dramatic and I love that.

These days I'm enjoying immensely The Best Hit. It's so fun and light, and Yoon Shi Yoon is brilliant as Da-Bong (as expected)... ?
Agree with Girlfriday, the show could just go on with the daily lives of all the cast without ever solving the time travel mystery. I would just tune in to see how Da-Bong and the others are doing and enjoy the comedy. They already feel like a family so I don't want the time travel issue to come back, I want Hyung Jae to stay forever ? It seems however that some big revelations are coming next week and the last stretch of the drama will be a more bumpy road than it has been so far.

In the middle watching FOS epi 5 and tomorrow will start binge watch Circle. ? I have one more week holiday, so time for kdrama finally. My plan after done with Circle, is to start Duel.

Atm only following My Sassy Girl for weekday drama, dropping Lookout (maybe will check the last epi). Other drama like Fight My Way, Suspicious Partner - will only see spoilers for some scenes. btw, Sul Hee is the highlight of this week. I really hope she will be stronger and learn to love herself more. I want her to dress herself pretty, meet new ppl, goes to blind dates etc. Although not really watching FMW, but I do appreciate they give us two separate loveline, although there is still someone who wants intervene with their relationship and being delusional, but at least they are not main characters ?

Ruler -maybe will get back at the last 2 epi to see how it ends.

The Best Hit - still following. I love Hyun Jae, but give me more of MC Drill, Grandpa and Mal Sook scenes as well! Whatever will happen between Ji Hoon-Woo Seung, let them settle it soon show, before I get annoyed.

Finished Circle and it was a satisfying ending for me.
Slowly losing interest in Fight My Way because I think it's losing its direction and the story just doesn't go anywhere.
Still enjoying The Best Hit for successfully making me randomly laugh out loud in at least 2 places in an episode, so it will stay with me as an easy weekend watch.
Desperate to watch the next episodes of Forest of Secrets and just waiting for my mind to be blown over and over again.

Saying goodbye to Circle is going to be hard. I really really REALLY hope we get a season 2. It would be a travesty if that didn't happen!

I finally started Seven Day Queen and I get the hype now. It's so good and I am currently obsessed with it. I was watching Sassy Girl but I kind of dropped that to watch Seven Day Queen because I already have so much I'm watching and one had to go. lol

Circle Season 2! Starring me and Yeo Jin Goo ??? I promise I'll look like Gong Seung Yeon after a few visits to Korea.

Am I right to say there are two camps with regards to the ending? One felt indignant that Woo Jin seemed so easily replaced by Circulate 3 in the hearts of the very people he loved most. The other were happy that memories of Woo Jin continued in Circulate 3 and it was as though he lived on. The alternative would be too painful.
I belonged to the 2nd camp and while I felt guilty, I was happy to see Circulate 3 smile and found acceptance with Bum Gyun and Jung Yeon. It makes me wonder if I have the ability to clone someone who has the exact personality and memories of a dead love one, would I do it?
In any case, viewers are so torn because the drama succeeded best in making us feel for the twin brothers. More than the sci fi elements and the intrigue, it was their love for each other which made us glued to the screen. So I am not surprised why the ending divided the audience.

My Sassy Girl I think Joo Won conveyed a lot more behind Gaksital mask in his duels than Gyun Woo did in his sparring with Prince Dalhan. I do not know if it's intentional but I sure got how bored and tired Gyun Woo was being the translator.

Still watching Seven Day Queen, Lookout and behind in Best Hit and Duel. Picked up Strong Family 2017 again, what a delight!

Counting down to Forest of Secrets. I want the subs to come out like nanoseconds after the broadcast but last week's subs came out not as slow as I had thought. Are the subs coming out faster now? I remember people complaining that it was very slow.

I struggled seeing OG Woojin being replaced so easily, as he will never experience what Circulate is experiencing.
At the same time, I was happy that Circulate Woojin was able to find a place he could belong too. Because he has Woojin's memories, he IS Woojin, that much can be accepted.
I feel like it's not a one camp or the other thing, but just a little resentment for not giving Woojin the send-off he deserves. Because Yeo Jin Gu did such a great job worming him into our hearts forever.

The Big Hit: I laugh out loud every single episode. I don't care about who ends up with whom because this seems like a sit/com at times, and I really can't take it all so seriously.

Fight My Way: Still behind but still enjoying this one.

Suspicious Partner: Overall pleasant watch, but does seem a bit by the dots. Also, agree the whole father scenario is ugh.

Stranger/Secret Forest: It's not perfect. I'm just gonna get that on the record. The lack of curiosity about the phone in the early episode was just too stupid for words. So, no, it is not perfect.....but it's pretty darn close. The acting and directing are great but credit the writer for somehow making corruption actually riveting. Also the pacing is great. Some of the early episodes went over an hour and I didn't even notice. When Goblin did that, I felt every extra minute and not in a good way. I gave my "not perfect" warning to those who binge watched Signal after reading rave reviews and then were upset it wasn't flawless. This drama isn't either but it's a step above any other drama I've seen of cops/lawyers dealing with corruption. I like the fact it is dramatic without being melodramatic (at least 6 episodes in).

Answer Me 1997 or 94....the one with SIG: I've never watched the Answer Me series, but this ended up on Netflix. While I saw fan wars happen with others in the series, everyone seems to universally like this one, and I am fans of the leads. On episode 3 and I get the popularity.

Father is Strange: Hye-young is just the best!!! I'm really dreading the reveal that AJH isn't the father's son and that the father had stolen the real Byun Han Soo's name.

The Best Hit: This is my weekly pick-me-up drama that makes me feel more relax after watching it. I love being able to root for so many characters to work hard and get their dreams.

Lookout: I'm really surprised at how much I like the pacing. We got to tell BM and KS's stories. Just when I was about to really give up on EJ, he teamed up with DH. Just when I thought DH will continue the cat-and-mouse play with YSR, DH revealed himself. And just when victory was close, it was snatched away. I've always bee sort of lukewarm about KYK, but he killed it this week!

Suspicious Partner: I feel like thie drama would have been better if they didn't do the father storyline, kept it at 16 episodes, and combined YJ and JH into one character. I'm still watching it because of my affection for the characters. I'm a little worried that BH, who was the one who got me into this drama, is starting to become a shadow of her former self.

Fight My Way: SH totally ruled this week! I do hope we get to see more of Aera's pursuit of her dream. We get long scenes of DM fighting (and of his enemies trying to bring him down), but barely any of AR doing her announcer thing.

Fox's Summer: Mainland china drama. Started season 2 of it and the second leads finally got a lot less annoying! Instead of being cartoonishly dumb or evil, they're developing themselves into "flawed and sympathetic" territory. I'm actually rooting for them.

I peeked at My Sassy Girl. I'm really glad that it's the female character with the traumatic past this round and that the male character is the one supporting her through this. Wish they hadn't called this a Joseon adaptation of MSG. Seems more akin to MDBC to me. Once MSG and 7 Day Queen are over, I'm going to have to go back and watch them.

Seven Day Queen: I’ll never get tired to mention that this is my favorite on-going drama at the moment. It makes me so desperate to wish for the next episode to be available in an instant. I can’t get over with Yeonsangun confession or rather declaration of him wanting Chae Kyung for his own in the last episode and I’m so ready (really?) for this drama in slowly ruining my life. Lol. I mean I’m ready for more tears and lil’ heart attacks caused by oh so worth it scenes. I just really love this drama! So bad.
Fight My Way: Dong Man and Ae Ra’s chemistry is nothing but crazily exploding! Watching this drama makes me wish so hard that they should already date in real-life which I often make. And one more thing, kudos to Sul Hee. At last! Go girl and try to love yourself more please.
The Best Hit: This show is good for the heart and I don’t need to check my BP while watching it and I like it the way it is. I consider it my needed break after watching heavy stuff, I miss Hyun Jae’s 90’s look though.
My Sassy Girl: Finally they kissed! I’m hoping to see more sweet moments from the leads from now on though I really like the Prince. I can say the story of this drama is better now than early episodes.
Splish Splash Love: Been wanting to watch it for a while now and finally had the time to start it. It gives the feeling of Moon Lovers and Love in the Moonlight at the same time which is both my valued dramas so I think I will love this drama.
My Only Love Song: Binge-watched it and done with this drama this week. It’s a very entertaining drama but don’t expect too much in the plot and don’t mind the oddness of this rom-com historical drama theme, just be happy with the leads overflowing chemistry.

Ruler This week had major exciting moments and plot movements. Better late than never. Although I am not really hoping that this trajectory is going to last until the finale, I'm here to stay to see this drama end.

Suspicious Partners I have not watched the last two episodes in full. Both Jiwook and Bonghee lost brownie points. And I'm really not a fan of this trope like what GF said. I hope it'll be dealt with next week.

Circle: this show remained amazing from start to finish. It made you question and reevaluate what has been shown on the screen. It made you care for the journey of the twin brothers on two different timelines. I would rewatch this again as soon as my heart settles down.

Fight My Way: AeRa and DongMan are all kinds of awkward as they traverse their new relationship status. And my dear SulHee was amazing as she faced JM and YJ. Hope she continues to be strong and take no more crap from people. My girl deserves better.

Seven Day Queen: Be still my heart. This show just hits all the right spots and continues to exceed my expectations. Even knowing how this will end, I still stick with it because the show knows how to pull you in with the right amount of melancholy, cuteness, suspense on the court drama and amazing portrayals of the actors. I am hooked.

My Only Love Song: this show is all kinds of cuteness. It was light and zippy. Sad that I already finished watching all the episodes. Felt short changed on the Ondal and SooJung cuteness that I started watching the actors' WGM episodes. I think I just became a fan. Their onscreen chemistry is so palpable.

Since Circle is done.. may finally pick up Forest of Secrets since been hearing good things about it.

People around me in real life all said so. I told them that it's good. I guess they like romance more, while I care little for romance (the big reason why I put down SP), so our tastes didn't match

I need to start watching Circle, but I'm saving it for until I'm done with Forest of Secrets. Honestly though I kind of feel like FoH is ruining me for other shows. It's just so assured, elegant, smart, and empathetic. It's hard to find something of that quality. Sigh.

I wish more ppl were watching lookout. It’s such a quality drama with a badass female lead, complex characters, amazing action scenes, great use of camera work, a thought provoking discussion of “do the ends justify the means” and a banging soundtrack

I've planned a marathon for the week it ends with a friend who loves Shin Dong-wook as much as I do! We're pretty excited for it now that it seems to have proven itself to those watching :) I'm one of the fools that seems to like almost everything airing right now for different reasons, so choosing has been so hard!

I'm behind on everything and will need to binge Lookout and Father is Strange this weekend. Netflix added Misaeng (as Incomplete Life), Nine, oh My Ghostess and Its Okay, That's Love so I will have to run my errands quickly.
