Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by DB Staff
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: House on Wheels
Graceful Friends: There’s so much to unpack, and after having finished the most recent episode, I’m finding both Goong-chul and Jae-hoon to be incredibly disturbing. It’s a credit to everyone involved that despite being unlikeable (or downright hateful in a couple of cases), they’re so fully realized that I understand their motivations even when I don’t agree with them. We’ve almost reached the end of the show, and we’ve had a lot of truths finally uncovered, but where will everyone go from here?
Forest of Secrets 2: I really enjoyed the premiere, but it was in the second episode where things really got interesting for me. I love seeing Lee Jun-hyuk back in action and that he hasn’t changed at all, he’s still in top weasel form. I can’t wait to see just how this police-prosecution power struggle plays out, and I hope that we get lots more Shi-mok–Yeo-jin teamwork .
Memorials: One of my favorite dramas of the year. Gu Se-ra was such a wonderful protagonist, strong, funny, flawed and passionate. I’ll miss my weekly doses of OTP cuteness. Gu Se-ra+Gong-myung = ♥

House on Wheels: I don’t know how it’s possible, but watching an episode of House of Wheels feels like therapy. There is something so comforting about watching our cast of three (and guests) drive around trailering their tiny house, setting up the tarp and deck, planning their meals, sitting around outside, and generally cracking jokes every other minute. I haven’t been watching every episode, but I’ve been tuning in here and there and every time I do, I fall in love with the show all over again. I just caught the episode with Uhm Tae-gu, because after reading that recap how could I not? Actually, it was kind of painful. As someone who gets really bad second-hand embarrassment, watching Tae-gu sweat and squirm made me want to sweat and squirm, too. It’s amazing how different he is on screen while acting compared to real life! I feel like if he was given a character and script he would have crushed the episode with his skills, but give him a poncho and tell him to do some small talk with strangers and it’s a fail (albeit, an adorable one!).
