Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

So, what are we all watching this week?

What kept you reaching for more (or agonizing when there was no more), and what made you want to throw your remote through the screen? Time to weigh in…

Currently recapping: Revolutionary Love

Because This Life Is Our First: I’m liking this more and more—the characters are so endearingly awkward, but in a way that makes sense and works together. Right now I don’t feel romance between the leads—they’re like an odd couple of kindred spirits—but rather than finding that disappointing, it makes me excited to watch this process; I’m intrigued me to see where the tipping point will be for these two.

20th Century Boy and Girl: I find this show mostly delightful, and the girlfriends’ friendship feels a little unrealistically sweet but heartwarming all the same. (They’re just so good! The small moments of irritation between the First Life ladies feels more true to life, although that doesn’t make me like these women less. It’s maybe more aspirational than relatable, though.) I’m conflicted about the extended flashbacks to childhood, because I like the parallels between then and now, and not seeing the full picture up front piques the curiosity about what happened in all that in-between time. But it also makes me impatient for the present-day story to take over—although with the We Got Married storyline about to take off, I think I’ll be gratified soon enough.

Witch’s Court: I really enjoy the characters and their personalities, and like that Jung Ryeo-won is super-competent and saucy but feels like she has some growing up still to do. But once again I’m reminded of why I don’t love heavily procedural shows, because in order to be effective, our good guys have to regularly face strong opposition and be put at the disadvantage by the conniving opposition, and I just don’t love having my blood made to boil every hour. But for a legal procedural, it’s one of the more compelling ones, I think.

Currently recapping: While You Were Sleeping

Because This Life Is Our First: I really like the overall vibe of this show and the portrayal of how youthful dreams collide with reality. I’m not sure that I buy Lee Min-ki’s character caving to his parents’ expectations for marriage though, seeing as how he’s really very set in his beliefs and opposed to conforming to the so-called norm, but of course I love what the conceit gives us—a contract marriage between two wonderfully odd ducks. The family dinner was awesome, and I can’t wait until they meet the friends.

Witch’s Court: There’s a very strong procedural bent to this show, but the leads pop and I enjoy their interactions, so the cases of the week go by pretty quickly for me. I actually thought they were going to hate each other for longer, but I wonder if we’re already starting to see the signs of attraction?

Temperature of Love: I’m confused as what Kim Jae-wook is planning to do as a romantic rival, but maybe I’ve never understood second leads of this type. I’ve been enjoying Temperature of Love for its lack of drama up till now, so I’m a little wary of what’s around the bend, but let’s cross our fingers and hope for reason to prevail.

Mad Dog: Woo Do-hwan is stealing the show for me, but that was expected. Once he joined the squad, nefarious intentions and all, the focus has really become the mystery surrounding his character and what he could possibly be after. But I just enjoy his caustic interactions with the rest of the crew, and those tiny moments of vulnerability under the surface do me in.

Revolutionary Love: At first, Siwon seemed too bratty, but then the second he fell for Kang So-ra’s character halfway through the first episode, I began to love him. It’s hilarious how he falls in love at the drop of a hat, and I really enjoy the fish-out-of-water hijinks as he struggles with foreign concepts like minimum wage and rent. It’s not a deep show, but it’s super cute.

Currently recapping: Black

The Package: I’m such a sucker for random people being forced together and learning more about themselves as they realize that everyone has their own stories and struggles that make them who they are. The balance of humor and painful reality is perfect and I love the way we get glimpses into everyone’s lives, drip by drip, just like we’re strangers on this trip along with the characters. Also my inner Francophile is easily delighted by the utter gorgeousness of the scenery, some of which is very near and dear to me (well, except Charles de Gaulle airport, ugh, I’ve never had a good experience there—nowhere near as terrible as someone mistaking me for a wanted sex offender, though). Fun fact: one of my abandoned career paths was a tour director, so hoo boy do I understand the headaches of trying to herd cats, uh, I mean, tourists. Basically this show is tailor-made to my exact tastes and I love it.

 

tineybeanie

20th Century Boy and Girl: Hmmm, I like the characters so far, but I don’t understand what the plot is. Is there a plot? *scratches head*

Witch’s Court: Nuuu c’mon Yoon Hyun-min. I want you to be more than a self-righteous do-gooder.

Revolutionary Love: It has all the elements of a good drama, but somehow I’m still not super-attracted. Maybe it’s because all of it has been done before? I think the only element that tugged my heart was when Siwon smiled after being kicked and physically abused by his father during the company board meeting, saying that his father must have weakened a lot over the years to resort to using his feet instead of his fists.

Currently recapping: Because This Life Is Our First

Black: I wasn’t sure which direction I should go in terms of drama watching for this fall cycle, so I decided to sample practically everything. What I chose to pick up and leave behind in the end really surprised me, so I’d say the experiment paid off. On to Black, I feel like Song Seung-heon and Go Ara’s acting flaws would feel less visible in this show if they didn’t have so much career baggage. That aside, I’d say they are pulling it off, and I find the character Black to be so fabulously weird that I think I have to stick around to see where this is going.

Revolutionary Love: I’m passing on this one. Watching Hyuk’s father hit Je-hoon as a proxy punishment for Hyuk (something that has clearly happened over and over) was where I tapped out, because it left such a bad taste in my mouth.

Buam-dong Revenge Club: So far I’m undecided on this one. I might watch a couple more episodes at some point to give it another chance, but I’ll do without it for now because it didn’t really make an impression on me.

Go Back Spouses: I wasn’t going to check this one out, but this show really surprised me, and after two episodes, I’m definitely keeping this one! The first episode is kind of intense, but then the leads go back in time and all their old-timey internal monologues are gold. I’m pleased with how quickly things moved because it’s a familiar concept, but on the other hand, I’m nervous that they’re already onto each other (well, at least Jin-joo is). I want more giggles before things get real again, since some of those scenes were (though rightfully) hard to bear. The scenes with Mom were my favorite though, and left me feeling warm, but also devastated, inside.

Witch’s Court: I’ve only seen the first two episodes, and while I don’t feel super invested right now, I like it enough to keep going. The characters are smart, and seem like full people, which is always a plus, and based on this first case, the cases of the week seem like they’ll be very topical but executed with some good twists that offer an interesting point-of-view.

The Package: Okay, it says a lot about how little I knew about this drama before watching, since I assumed “The Package” was a literal parcel and not a vacation package. This show has very pensive tendencies that are a little more self-indulgent than I normally like, but beyond that it’s nice. I don’t really have strong feelings about it, but I find it easy to watch.

Because This Life is Our First has ruined all other currently airing dramas for me.

I quite enjoyed the first two episodes of WYWS before BTLIOF started airing. I am now behind WYWS as a result of watching BTLIOF. I would have like first episode of The Package if there was no other slice-of-life drama I'm currently watching. So I dropped that for now. And I decided to hold off on Revolutionary Love because I would only compare the couple there with the couple from BTLIOF.

So, now out of many dramas that aired this month, I'm left with one to watch each week That's how good Because This Life is Our First.

I have to agree. BTLIOF is so good it makes other dramas of the same type right now (romcom) look not as good.

It really does not help that Jung So Min and Suze look quite similar but one of them has so much subtle expression in her eyes and face while the other ones acting is flat. And it hurts me to say this but I prefer LJS in Pinocchio over LJS here.

My current top 3:

1. The Odd Couple
2. ‎The Retro Couple
3. ‎The Old friends Couple

Still interested in The Revolutionary Couple... but losing my interest in The Hot-Cold-Hot Couple and The Sleeping Couple.

Though... after recent watch of the first two episodes (thanks subbers!!) I will need to squeeze in the top list also The Ajumma Trio 🙂

Allow me to guess:

The Odd Couple from Because This Life Is Our First
The Retro Couple from Go Back Spouses
The Old friends Couple from 20th Century Boy and Girl
Hot-Cold-Hot Couple from Temperature of Love
The Sleeping Couple from While You Were Sleeping

Let me know if I got 5 out of 5.

May I suggest The Unconventional-Three-Way Couple as an alternative to the Ajumma Trio because I'm all in if the two ladies just abandon their husbands and live with their unnie.

Watching Secret Garden- ha! I love this drama and the love triangle between Tae sun(he is hot kyah), oska oppa and seul <3 I wish Oska was gay, so that my OTP would come true, but nopes he seems very straight :D
Dropped WYWS, everything is fine, the acting, the pace. But the writing is lacking. PHR made the lead characters too simple, not layered enough and the plot holes -_- Both IHYV and Pinocchio had some plot holes, but those dramas had this "magic", a warmth which is missing here, and I can't stick just for visuals :/

Oh...and While You Were Sleeping - I do enjoy the show, but there's just something missing for me.

Well, lets see. I'm watching
Temperature of Love (love) but I'm so nervous.
Because This Life is Our First (love). Lee.Min.Ki. Honestly. What more needs to be said. (and if they could slide some guyliner on those pretty eyes...)
Witch's Court--while this isn't my favorite of the Monday/Tuesday line up so far this is the one that has me on the edge of my seat wondering whats going to happen next
While You Were Sleeping--SO CUTE And leave my Batman Cop alone. Gosh!
Mad Dog--while I like Mad Dog they need to back off the Min Joon character a bit. For my taste, they came on too strong with the villain narrative and all of his small vulnerable moments are lost on me because I want to set him on fire and toast marshmallows on his carcass (its smores season, guys!)
The Package--Jung Yong Hwa this drama could be absolute crap and I watch every second of this. I LOVE him. And has he been working out? His shoulders are looking nice
And I'm going to try the Go Back Couple. I've seen it mentioned a couple of times that it has a similar feel to Fight My Way and I loved that drama. A lot. And I'm going to try Revolutionary whatever. It sounds like light fluff and I love light fluff.

Costume party. His company is having a shindig and they decide what do they need? Costumes. New wife Joi Ho is of course going to be there with some sort couples costume in mind. She takes a look at See Hee's eyes and an idea strikes: See Hee looks "similar" to a certain actor in an old drama. Put on this guyliner and leather jacket, homie. When he tries to resist she explains that as a writer for dramas this is the sort of costume that his colleagues will expect her to put him in. And they want their marriage to be believable....don't they?

Temperature of Love - -ve comments on 2nd guy when he hasn't done anything wrong. Recapper said he has not right to feel even upset(Amazing. isn't it?). 7/10
Because This Life - 6.5/10. Typical Kdrama. Entertaining for sure but not amazing at all.
While Sleep - 6.5/10 Pretty painted faces and annoying cliches.
Witch's Court - 6/10 another annoying drama. Nonsense touted as something good.
The Package - 6.5/10 A bit boring but still cinematography is engaging.
Go Back Couple - watched only 20min of it but if it is similar to Meh then i will drop it 6.5/10
Revolutionary Romance - 2nd male lead is what i look forwards to 6/10

Mad Dog - 7/10. Good Emotional scenes. Nonsensical acts/events. You expect much more from this kind of show. Its like written by some teenager after going 007.

Temperature of Love - I love the romance, this is first time I sincerely love romance in kdrama after 1% of Anything. ❤ But if you are looking from drama overall, this writer seems sober while writing the romance between OTP but drunk while writing other parts. Maybe she should consider to write romantic movie instead of 20/40 epi drama.

Buamdong Revenge Club - My drama crack. The increase of the rating shows more people are enjoying this drama. Thank you to volunteer subbers for your hard work. ❤

To-watch today & tomorrow : Witch's Court and 20th Century. 💪😎

Thinking to watch /continue watching : Go Back Couple 😁 and Mad Dog 🤔 Dislike both main rookies' acting (Woo Do-hwan and Ryu Hwayoung) in first two epi. They were good in previous project, but maybe acted with lesser/ same level of actors made them shined, not to mention their characters were interesting. Ryu especially needs to polish more-one expression all the time, where is Kang Yi-na?

I'm of the same opinion - I somehow respect ROMantic KDrama Temperature of Love. I can't say the same about 1%.
Writer is playing safe. Something Engaging(new+interesting)+Same old cliche stuff audience is familiar with. If i were in his/her place i would have done the same.
I have certainly build more affection towards 31+ ahjummas(Actors+Characters) than young actresses and heroines.
I won't talk about acting as i never found anyone spectacular in kdrama industry but Ryu had nothing much to do and i feel Woo is doing what was asked from him. It isn't like all other actors are doing something special there.

I wasn't expected Ryu to be Kang Yi-na in this drama as well, regardless how much /little things you can do in the drama, any good actor woould at least do the acting. I only saw her monotone expression, and this is quite a disappointment knowing she did better job in Age Of Youth, although I already disappointed to see her weak acting in Father in Strange but I gave

Rearding TOL, agreed that the writer is playing safe. I'll just continue watch it for the romance, and it's also light watch, perfect for beginning of the week.

She was so good as Kang unni but in Mad Dog she has the same problem as Uee, her acting always looks like she's angry or pissed off. Right now it's not as irritating as with Uee because you can say her character is like that...but yeah. At least it's not a true female lead, she's just the only girl in the Mad Dog ensemble cast.

Witch at Court: The writing is okay, the acting is amazing~. It's doing really well ratings wise.

Because This Life is our First: Absolutely loving this show, I can't wait for next week!

Wed-Thurs.

Temperature of Love: I'm on episode 6-7 but it's on hold. The main couple has some sizzling chemistry though...

Mad Dog: Still very meh on this show but I'll wait until the recaps come out

Fri - Sat.

Go Back Spouses: This is my favourite show out of all the premieres, it's got plenty of heart and comedy.

I started watching We Married as a Job because people kept talking about the major similarities between this show and This Life is our First. I gotta say, I'm loving it! I love that the main guy is ordinary looking.

Avengers Social Club is topping my list. It's like a breath of fresh air from romance dramas, a drama about revenge in a cute way but serious at the same time. I want to join bokja club too. The best drama currently airing.

Witch's Court is also good. Episode 2 was too strong that I find episodes 3 & 4 a little letdown but has some character development.

Go Back Couple is a surprise.

Black is confusing but I hope it'll pick up more this week.

Loving THE PACKAGE because it's constantly keeping me off-balance, from it's crazy humor in the first two eps to the sudden emo mood in the third. Jung Yonghwa is doing great holding it down and the supporting cast is also aces, especially the older couple, who tore my heart out in ep. 3. Nice scenery--both France and the two leads, that is.

Oh my gosh. The older couple brought tears to my eyes. As much as I've cried over dramas this week I may have to turn in my hardened cynic card (its right next to my candy corn heart, so. Its readily available). They are doing such interesting things with JYH and the guide, the older couple--even the cheater couple captured my interest today (is he really cheating? Has his wife died? For a second I thought that maybe the young woman with him was his daughter that he's trying to reconnect with but then he asked if she took his picture while he was in the bath and my squicked out brain said...NOOOOOOO) And then there's the 20something early 30s something couple that's engaged (I guess) and she's maybe cheating on him/about to cheat on him? I don't like them. At all. Maybe tomorrow will be their day to stop being douches.

I absolutely love The Package from the get-go. The 1st two episodes elicited much unexpected spontaneous laughter from me. Yong Hwa truly nailed his comic scenes. Didn't expect him to be so comical in this series, and he did it so naturally too. The older couples scenes at the end of episode 3 truly made me teary-eyed but episode 4 is the best so far, so hilarious and entertainment. The Package for now is my crack. Too bad it's only 12 episodes long. There are so many individual stories to dig into.

Yong Hwa is surprisingly good in comedic scene. He is definitely improve. I actually think he is doing better than LYH. But i don't think i can trust him yet in a scene which will require him to show more variety subtle emotion.

1. While You Were Sleeping - This is my top drama in my priority. Some people say that this drama is overrated, but I don't know if it's Lee Jung Suk's charm or what, but I'm excited to watch this drama every week! It's my no. 1 crack drama right now.

2. Revolutionary Love - Siwon's charm got me again. The plot is cliche, but it made me laugh like crazy and it makes me feel good after watching it. Hyuk and Joon, fighting!

3. Because This is My First Life - I just can't wait to watch Se Hee to fall in love with Ji Ho and can't wait for the marriage contract hijinks!

4. Go Back Couple - This drama manages to make me laugh and cry and laugh and cry again in one episode. Love the 1999 vibe! Jang Na Ra is beautiful as always. Gosh, I'm so jealous of her.

5. Witch's Court - I binged-watching this drama ep1-4 this week and I love it! I love when Ma Yi Deum smiles in the court, it means that she'd fooled everyone there!

6. Buamdong Revenge Club - Three ahjumma powers! I wish this drama will be sub faster! I love Lee Yo Won so much in this drama.

7. Temperature of Love - Aww, sorry Yang Se Jong, no amount of swoon can make me love this drama as how I used to. How can President Park be so dense? hmm. But I'll give it a try another few episodes.

8. Black - It's quite unusual drama for OCN because I never laugh so much watching OCN drama, but this drama is the exception. (Tunnel was a bit funny, but not to this extend). Gosh, I laughed so hard when Moo Gang (or Black) did all the fish out of water stuff. If this drama keep on being funny, I'll watch it til the end though I've no idea what's going on right now with this drama.

9. The Package - I think this drama didn't do the beauty of France a justice. I've never been to Paris, but after watching this drama, I don't find Paris attractive at all. I don't know if it's the editing or directing, but it looks bland. The drama itself feels stagnant. There a few funny moments, but didn't really make me become invested in this drama.

10. Mad Dog - I'm surprised that I don't love Mad Dog as much I thought I would. The main leads are all my favorite, but I don't know why I don't really enjoy the story line. I'll give this drama until ep 6 before I decide to drop it or not.

10 dramas in a week. 👏💐👏💐

Let me know if anyone can top this.

In this cycle, I only managed to watch 4 currently-aired dramas. Even that, it already made me feel like a wanted-fugitive-for-procrastination. 😁

Well, i'm completely head over heels with This Life Is Our First. How can they so odd but strangely fit each other. Just love every bit of this show. This week episode is sooo funny. Can't stop laughing. Especially, Jihoo's parent meeting, and i'm looking forward meeting with Sehee parents. Ohh, monday tuesday, please come fast.
.
My Golden Life becomes soo dreadful these day. But, I won't oppose Jian if she told the truth to Dokyung. Right now, it seems just Dokyung that has the solution about this mess.
.
Temperature Of Love, i feel a little dissapointed with Park Jungwoo. How can he just continue proposed to woman he never date. Hyunsoo clearly state her mind and set boundaries between them. Its just so rudiculous. I'm nearly dropped it. Looking up another week to watch what jungwoo has up to his sleeve before decided to dropped it or not.
.
Finally i'm picking up Save Me. Not so much to say. Its clearly how just Woo Dohwan shinning in my eyes. And hope the loveline with sangmi but turned out to be nothing. Sigh, because its woo dohwan character (i'm forgetting his name T,T too much dramaa T,T) who save sangmi and show interest from the very first episode one. I expected that he and sangmi same some feeling but nothingg~~ so disappointing! But the show ended in the good note.
.
Now i'm already finished save me, time to pick up mad dog but still hesitant. It looks like another drama keep bugging me, don't know which one should i start first. Any recommend anyone?

Because This Life is Our First : LOVE LOVE LOVE whatever they’re selling me. It’s refreshing to watch the contract marriage catnip was done not by force, or started with hate between the leads, and it’s wonderfully exciting to have leads that are so endearingly weird and random, and understand each other so well. I hope this show stays good coz I’m putting high hopes on this one!

Revolutionary love: The plot is yet to kick in, but it’s wacky, it’s crazy and it made me laugh out loud and I’m in the mood for dramas that can make me laugh right now so maybe this one is gonna stay.

I hope I have more time for other shows, but unfortunately, I don’t. So these two will have to do for the time being 😓

Ooh this thread came out early~ o:

Still haven't started Go Back Spouses yet even though I heard it was good. >w< I can barely keep up with my main Mon/Tues dramas during the week then try to catch up on the rest later. @[email protected]

I'm hooked on 20th Century Boy and Girl! ❤️ It feels like a classic, sweet rom-com without any angst (so far). The lead chemistry is good. The friendships. The families. They generally give me a warm, happy feeling. Just the major conflict hasn't occurred yet. I don't mind the pacing at all though.

I was disappointed that Temperature of Love only aired two episodes this week. Really ready to see the proposal fallout and Jung Woo's reaction! O_O

Because This Life is Our First: I LOVE this drama. It is my favorite out of the currently airing drama. Funny, relatable, and also heartbreaking.

Revenge Club (up to ep 2): I'm warming up to it. It's a bit slower and less energetic that I had expected, but still a good watch and I really want to find out what happens next.

Witch's Court: Wasn't planning on watching it, but ended up doing so. Yi Deum makes me cringe sometimes, but I enjoy watching her (and her victorious smiles) and her chemistry with Jin Wook is adorable.

Black: The gross humor felt out-of-place, but everything else was intriguing (with a liberal dash of confusing) enough for me to eagerly anticipate the next episode.

Dropped While You Were Sleeping. I wish the visions were a little more dynamic? Can't explain it.

1). Tried to watch "Buamdong Revenge Club" on a whimp. And I'm totally loving it! I love how all the characters come up together and plan their revenge. I'm quite surprise the chaebol ajumma's enjoying her coffee in the fish market. I love Ra Miran character. And the bumpkin boy stole my heart. To me, he's mature and wise beyond his age.

2). Because This Is Our First: ahhhh.. our couple is cutely awkward. Too curious how their relation progresses.

3). Mad Dog: ohhhhh Woo Do-Hwan: noona is swooned! 😘😘😘😘

I like While You Were Sleeping and The Package..

WYWS : the plot is really interesting and the drama feels real..normally the character in the drama will drove a luxury car, have a luxury house, but in this drama the characters live as a normal people..taking a bus ride..
also, after got stab from knife, the actor react like normal people not like a character does not feel hurt after got stabbed..

The Package : i like the well arrangement plot and it is easy to watch and understand..what i learnt from this drama, sometimes people judge from the outside only, without knowing what the hardship that person are bearing..we should appreciate each other..
Also, the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful..

Go Back Spouses this is the one which made me laugh and cry. It's so relatable.

Buamdong Revenge Club good enough to make me watch with Chinese subs. I'm slow but starting to realize it is not about the revenge but the journey of self-discovery and unlikely friendships. There's one thing that bothers me though. I have to stop putting the step son and step mother together. I'm sure the show is not going there.

Witch's CourtI can watch bratty Jung Ryeo-won eye roll and smirk all day. Writing is pretty simple but the show still entertains. I just hope they don't make too much ado about the birth secrets. If one isn't enough, there's two. If these two are related, I just can't.

I see a lot of raving Because This Life Is Our First, let's see if I can get into it.

About Avengers Social Club, I don't think they're putting the step son and step mother together. It's more of friendship or mother-son relationship since they're both in the same situation(both are illegitimate daughter & son). But I can't deny that Lee Yowon and Jun has good chemistry.

Yes, I am sure they aren't. Maybe it's because I find Jun's character more mature than all the dumbass grown up men in the show. This drama isn't about romance so there is no way it's going to happen.

ONGOING

Temperature of Love: Kind of sucks that we only got one episode this week, but it was still a good episode. Next weeks episodes might be trouble though. Either way, I love this drama.

Because This Life Is Our First: Like many other beanies here, I love this drama. I really hope that this drama maintains its level of awesomeness.

20th Century Boy and Girl: I'm seriously contemplating dropping this one. I find it to be really slow. The potential love triangle might piss me off as well.

Witch's Court: I haven't watched this week's episodes yet. I don't think I'm rushing to watch this show either.

Go Back Spouses: I watched the first episode a while back. I really need to catch up because I really liked the first episode. Time, I need more of you!

PICKED UP

Buam-dong Revenge Club: This shows is pretty dang good. There are elements that I'm not too sure about, but overall it works. Jung-hye is a riot, Do-hee is super warm--so is her family--and Mi-sook is...I'll reserve comment for later one. The sisterhood has some serious potential, especially based off of ep 2. I can see the bromance being strong in this one. I'm surprised how much the kids hold there own in this without the 'mothers' overshadowing them. The only thing that sucks is the release schedule of subs. I really appreciate the work the sub team has put in, but when you like a drama and want you a fix that instant...

Mad Dog: I've only seen the first episode. Not too sure if I'll continue. If I were to continue with this show, it would be thanks in no small part to Woo Do-hwan. The guys is a really good actor.

I haven't started watching any of the new dramas but I've been enjoying reading the recaps for Witch's Court and 20th Century Boy and Girl. Might start watching these two soon. Seems like everyone's loving This Life is Our First. Not a big fan of either of the leads (nothing against them, just not much of a fan) so I don't exactly have the motivation to watch it, but I'll give it a shot after more episodes come out since everyone's raving about it.

Because This Life is Our First: This show delivers a very romantic scenes in the most unromantic way possible, and somehow makes it that much swoonier. In another word, I fall head over heel with this drama.

20th Century Boys and Girls: A breezy watch with likable characters. I epecially like the way they explore the idea of ordinary family in many different forms.

While You Were Sleeping: Show, do you really need me to worry over one of the leads at the end of each episode??

Three Meals a Day S4: Ep 10. It's a bit disconcerting to see Snail Restaurant operated in a much faster pace this week. I like how Shinhwa brought many changes with their arrival. The fruitful fishing, successful cooking experiment, lots of ajae gag flying around, and how chirpy they all suddenly were. It's adorable how Seo-jin ajusshi adopted all Shinhwa members as his dongsaeng.

Currently Watching:
Because this is my first time - Jung So Min is doing a great job. Welcome back Lee Min Ki.
20th Century Boy and Girl - Han Ye Seul chose a good project this time. Kim Ji Suk is ready for a male lead role. Still waiting for more Lee Sang Woo scene.
BLACK - I know some don't get this drama and there's a lot of thing going on on the 2 episode but I like it Song Seung Heon as cold and innocent grim reaper. I'm into fantasy drama too maybe because I want to live in a fantasy for awhile because all of us know how hard it is to live in reality.
Go Back Spouses - My favorite in all the drama airing this month. Maybe because I can relate to the story and because sometimes I always think of going back in time where I'm still young and maybe change some couple of things that happened in my past.
While You were sleeping - Another great drama from the writer of Pinocchio and IHYV. Great OST too
Witch Court - Bec of Yoon Hyun MIn but Jung Ryeo Won is taking the spotlight in this drama :D

Liar Game - somebody hold me please. The ending made me pick my jaw up from the floor. I enjoyed this so much, especially once we were near the ending. Shin Sung Rok was the highlight for me. I feel like no performance of his is going to top that one. I got chills once he began to come undone and the veneer of respectability slipped away. Now where is that dang season 2 we were promised?

20th Century Boy and Girl - I'm casually watching and it's pretty sweet. I'm not sure I'll keep it up though. One thing for sure, I really love the friendships in the show.

Avengers Social Club - ugh. This show has stolen my heart and the wait for subs is agonizing. Our three leads are delightful in their own way and I cannot wait to see them take down the men who hurt them and in the process drunkenly bond and declare themselves sisters. Also, I'm so invested in seeing how a dude fits into the club. Jun is entertaining and cute. For once, I'm really envying the beanies who have a firm enough grasp on Korean to watch dramas raw. 😭

Go Back Spouses - Ahhhh, this is so much fun and gets me teary every ep. The OST has a sentimental, nostalgic feeling. I continue to adore Jang Nara in this drama so much. I'm so glad that it's proven to be worth her talents.

Because This Life is Our First - I don't what I can say that hasn't already been said. Just love.

Buam-dong Revenge Club - I adore these ladies and their children and can't wait for them all to bond more over their hilarious attempts at revenge!

Witch's Court - I enjoy the characters, but the writing isn't quite strong enough to sustain my interest on the procedural part. I'm still watching for now.

20th Century Boy and Girl - It's a bit too slow and I agree with JB's criticism, but I'm still watching for the romance. May wait for a few more eps to come out.

Revolutionary Love - I enjoy this enough, but something's still missing for me. Still looking forward to this week's eps though.

While you were sleeping - Mid drama slowdown time. But I am very disappointed at the character arcs at the moment. HJ quirkiness hiding her perceptiveness and courage is diminishing. JC has gone from conservative and lacking self confidence to super-goodie. It would have made more sense to make JC the one who is convinced of guilt (as prosecutor) and HJ be the one who tells him to investigate thoroughly before prosecuting. The opposite, as played out, doesn't ring true to either character. HJ now appears to be expositionary, eye-candy, romantic interest rather than a pivotal character.

This Life is Our First - "Slice of life" tonally with a lot of heart and depth. Early days yet and sincerely hoping the writer keeps up. I am optimistic since I loved "Hogu's Love"/"Fool's Love". The writer knows how to integrate some big social issues into their drama in way that isn't heavy-handed or overly proselytizing.

20th Century Boy and Girl - Not sure where it wants to go (and not in a good way) because the pacing is pretty slow. If the central romantic line is between a top celebrity and a highly successful financier, then making it "slice of life" seems tonally odd. ("lives of the rich and famous"?) The characters are supposed to be 35 years old, not 25. SJJ appear to act like what happened 17 years ago (nothing dramatic really?) happened yesterday from an emotional standpoint. Is she that stuck in her life (looking in the rearview mirror) despite being a top celebrity?

Revolutionary Love - gave up after 1 episode. Nothing very revolutionary about the plot or characters.

Black - Started out interesting, the characters appeared to have psychological depth and the supernatural element played into it. Very fast paced. By the end of the second episode the psychological elements fell apart, actions served only to move the plot forward. The story??? I think the writer may have shuffled a few different scripts together by mistake and started filming it as a single drama. Disjointed and confusing is probably the kindest description at the end of Ep 2.

The Package - Early days yet and I am not sure how to phrase this without sounding insensitive. So far, it seems like "let's film a Korean melodrama in xxxxx". XXXXX could be France, Jeju Island, San Francisco, Sydney, New York, etc etc. The location, other than some scenery shots, seems not to play in the context of the melodrama at the moment.

Currently watching Witch's Court which is awesome as always, I love the leads interaction so much.

Buamdong Revenge Club is my new favorite, just because I love all three of our dear ahjummas and I want to see how they'll exact revenge and those who hurt them. I think the waiting game for the subs made me even more excited about this show.

Revolutionary Love is the show I didn't expect to like as I'm not too much of the commonly used poor girl-rich boy pairing but Siwon and Kang Sora makes it worthwhile so I'll still be sticking with it.

I'm still behind on WYWS, Mad Dog and Andante but I'm watching it still just to pass the time waiting for Witch's Court and BRC.

Dropping Go Back Spouses for now as I can't have too many dramas on my plate.

OMG there are so many dramas that I am watching and I don't know how it ended up this way. lol. I've started watching Because This Life is Our First and Buamdong Revenge Club as well and i've been enjoying both. I did check out the first 2 episodes of The Package and while I find it boring I might stick with it because I love everything Paris. I am still watching Temperature of Love and was super annoyed they didn't air Tuesdays ep bc of the baseball game. Wednesday/Thursdays are packed for me with Hospital Ship and While You Were Sleeping which has been so entertaining!

I am currently following a record number of Korean dramas (six!!!), when I normally would not be able to find more than two that interest me at the same time, when it rains it pours!

The Package- Surprisingly my current favorite. Thought it would be a travel show (lol wut), but it turned out to be a story about a group of ordinary folks each with their own set of realistic, even poignant problems. Some very touching moments in the latest episodes (*sniff sniff*).

Mad Dog- My crack show atm! The chemistry between the two male leads is off the chart, and I find the cases to be more intelligent/original than your typical crime show.

While You Were Sleeping- Strangely I have zero interest in the central romance (though it is cute), but I looooove the workplace dynamics at the prosecutors' quarter, the friendship between the main trio, and find the cases in this show much more interesting/thought-provoking than this writer's previous shows.

20th Century Boy and Girl- The most light-hearted and fun among the pack.

Because This Life Is Our First- The only thing I find totally unconvincing in this show is the lead girl's wardrobe, no way she can afford it with her paltry salaries and unless that tiny suitcase of hers has a forth dimension, she can't possibly stuff all her clothes/shoes in it! But overall it's a fun show with some thought-provoking dialogues.

Black- I have no idea why a chicken like myself who normally cannot stomach anything with horror and/or gore was first intrigued by the show's preview, and am now hooked in spite of all these scary stuffs in it! Must say I am really impressed by Go Ara, who I never much cared for in the past.

I couldn't agree more regarding these quotes by you...!! You ghostwrite me dear Sho nim!

1.WYWS - I always thought that the chemistry between the co workers, the family, the Dragon trio were exceptionally well written and feels real, uncompromise, warm, cute!
But I don't really invested who is the one HJ will end up with (yeah JC for sure, haha) but I'll admit, they are fine as it is.
2. The magical suitcase of JH? I always thought, maybe she is a magician? Hahaha because, no way for 10 years and you only have that much? Even no matter how poor you may seems.
But, anyways this is drama. Should turn my brains off for a sec.

Overall,
These 2 dramas which triggered my interest the most, still on going with the avengers trio, and revolutionary love, see if I can keep up then. Hahha

Temperature : 2 episodes only this week! Ahhh. Not enough. From the preview.. I might drop this after 2 episodes because I don't want Jung woo rage.

First time : won seok is making me swoon. I like the side characters but the main couple is a little boring for me. Maybe things will change after robot turned into human

Hospital Ship : maybe it's the actors or characters.. I can't stop watching even if the medical inaccuracy is so bad.

WYWS : Wontak's abs is the highlight. I was not expecting that.

The Package : Actually quite like the vibe. It like I'm travelling with them.

Go back spouses : omg, if it didn't have Nara, I would have skipped this drama. I didn't expect to like this drama because time travel to the past isn't my favorite theme. I think what helps is that both really wanted to go back to the past. Seeing Nara staring at omonim is so bittersweet. I would have done the same if in same position

For this drama circle, Oppas are taking a back seat while Unnies are shining brightly !

The Big Boss : It's such a silly meme-worthy Chinese drama ! It has that random-high school-with-quirky-characters-doing-random-things-anime vibe perfect for relaxing after a hard day and doing gifs. Something bugged me tho. When characters are shown singing the background music doesn't match their lips. But it's just a tiny observation. I'm impatiently waiting for season 2 to be subbed.

The Omniscient Viewpoints of Crushes : It's a kind of mini webserie on youtube about a bunch of people crushing on other people. It has 3 seasons but the first one is not connected to the other two even if some actors appear in the other two seasons. Yeo Hoeyeon (I will never learn his name's spelling) is in the 3rd season (my favorite) and has the cutest loveline ! This boy is slowly swooning girls right and left.

Lingerie Girl's Generation : The girls are the true OTP. Nothing else matters.

KBS Drama Special 2017 Madame Jeong's One Last Week : Ra Miran is love <3 I was satisfied with this drama special and the little girl was cute. I like it when an adult with immoral intentions lets his/her good side shine because of a child.

Temperature of Love : Thank you for the kiss.

Witch's Courtroom : I like the way cases are portrayed and characters endearing actions.

20th Century Boy and Girl : It's a cute show so why is it hurting me with Ji Sung's dad story ? I'm excited for Jin Jin to be on WGM with Anthony. She's going to live every fangirl dream kyyaah >.<

Because This Life is Our First : Our duo feel more like companions than a couple at this stage and I love it. Even if they don't actually get married I will be satisfied for them to be simply together.

While You Were Sleeping : Batman has a secret... Will we get a Bruce Wayne backstory ? And where is Alfred ?

Black : I didn't expect the turn this drama is taking. I'm really confused as to if I like it enough to watch it.

Mad Dog : Woo Do Dohwan is the center and holds his own against Yoo Ji Tae. I'm really curious about him but I like Jo Jae Yun's character the most (who knew Disciple Jo's new life would please me ?)

Go Back Spouses : Aww Jang Nara clinging on her mother is cute and sad at the same time. She must have missed her lot during her married life.

Avengers Social Club : Our ahjumma trio is so badass and the sons are so adorable. I can't wait to see more of them.

Revolutionary Love : I expected a lot from this show but it doesn't pull me in. Hyuk's smile when his father beat him up convinced me to try a few episodes more because he seems really genuine.

The Package : Charles de Gaulle Airport really offers bad experience for everyone !

I am a sucker for procedural shows, so I am enjoying Witch's Court a lot. Also watching While you were sleeping and This life is our first. Needless to say, I am a happy addict at the moment since my tastebuds are very well satisfied by the basket of shows I am watching currently :D

I try to have one drama for each one day, at least, because sleeping without watching drama is just too hard. Ironic, I know.
So here is my list, sorted from the most favorable ones:
1. Because This Life Is our First
Mouthful, but soulful. I am looooooking forward for that impossible day when Se Hee realize that he too can love someone, and cant live without our beloved Ji Ho.

2. While You Were Sleeping
That beautiful cinematography is what keeps drawing me to this show. That, and a hope of seeing Han Woo Tak in uniform. Perhaps because I am shallow, and because each case is pretty much solved every week (which I love as well). I dont worry much about the overall love triangle arc, because I have faith in the writernim. It is strange though, how the writer tried to kill off han woo tak last week, and tried to kill off jae chan this week, while completely ignoring how the week before all that, it was hong joo's death that was highlighted.

3. Avenger Social Club
I want more!

4. Revolutionary Love AND Black
Until I see this week's ep, I will reserve my judgement on whether continue to watch these two or to drop at least one of them.

This is my review and I'm so excited that I have something to look forward every week after Lookout (my last drama).

1. Because this is my first life- Hands down. This drama is so simple yet unique. Kudos to the writer to be able to write familiar plot (I mean, marriage contract and what not) and turned them to something that I've never seen before. I felt in love with Lee minki. He's so charming and odd but strangely all his life-calculations made sense.

Revolutionary love- I watched it because I love Kang Sora so much and so far I enjoy the show. My only complaints is the excessive sounds that made Si won character looked like a joke. I mean they put sounds everytime he's blinking. I'll continue watching and hopes the sound is bearable in future episodes.

The package- I love Jung Yonghwa so I decided to check this out. Not gonna lie I also thought this show is about a parcel. LOL. Overall it was nice and it's like an 8 days itinerary to France and will surely help me if I ever plan to go there. I'm surprised that this shows has has a bunch of popular actors too. Lee Yeonhee, Yoon Park and Choi Wooshik. I'm not that excited to wait every week like BTIMFS but I'm not dropping this one.

While you were sleeping - I dropped this show after episode 2. Idk why it just don't attract me despite that I love Suzy. Perhaps I have had enough with supernatural drama.

Go Back Spouse.- I dropped after episode 2. I felt a bit disappointed though because I really really love Jang Nara. The show is getting boring (at least for me) and again maybe I'm tired of supernatural drama esp time-travelling..

I find the friendship of the girls in 20TH CRNTURY BOY AND GIRL relatable because I have that kind of over the top sweet relationship with my girlfriends, sure, things turn sour at times & we fight like mad cats but then we make up the next day & are get back together.

Hyuk's horrid dad hitting both him & hi yeon was so horrible to watch in REVOLUTIONARY LOVE , add to that his shady big brother, but I still want to watch hyuk redeem himself & grow as a person.

Blindly sticking to WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING, BLACK & GO BACK SPOUSES, simply because...

I like the lead couple in BECAUSE THIS LIFE IS OUR FIRST, there might be no chemistry, yet, but I liked that they compliment each other so easily. Its like looking forward to their mundane day to day life, very easy & peaceful, probably a bit of bonding & getting to know each other. They get along so well from the start.

About BTLIOF, the couple has 'no chemistry" only in the fact that they are not attracted to each other. But I keep wanting to see them together even if it's just talking and non-romantic, not just because they are pretty. I feel like that is chemistry too, it's different from seeing romantic feelings from the characters.

Because This Life is Our First is quirky and delightful, but is bears enough similarity to Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu, to be just a passing resemblance. I know beanies have already said it's a remake of that show, but have the writers/producers come out to admit as much?

I will continue to watch:
1) go back spouses - rooting for the couple to figure things out and be happy regardless of being together or not in the future. And i cant wait to see how their son will affect them.
2) this is my first life - the show is funny in such a muted way. The character struggles seems realistic, suji with her job, horang with her relationship etc2

on the fence but maybe i'll still watch:
1) witch's court
2) 20th century girl and boy
3) black

maybe i'll drop:
1) revolutionary love - i feel bad for jehoon and i dont really understand hyuk's character
