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 weecapping: Oh! Master
Sell Your Haunted House: I’m shocked we are already at the halfway point (sadness!), but I like the journey we’ve been on so much that I can’t be too sad. I liked the ghost stories this week, and overall I like how this show is a lot about grief, but I’m also at a point in the story where I’m ready for a bit more. Which is why it’s perfect, because we now not only have some serious questions around Ji-ah’s business partner, but she has finally discovered the true identity of In-bum. Their confrontation was rough, but I feel sure they’ll join forces (again) before long. The more I see these two together, the more I’m convinced they are perfect foils. Ji-ah is hard and cold and won’t be fooled, and In-bum is kind and generous and to the point that makes him easy prey. Bonus points for how he totally takes Ji-ah for what she is, and when she grumps off and leaves him in the dust, he gives her the macarons and coffee they were meant to share (favorite moment from this week).
Dark Hole: This isn’t quite working for me, but I might give it another week. The first episode was disjointed and strangely boring given how much it throws at you. Although the second episode was a little more cohesive and focused, it’s still not nearly as frightening or intriguing as I was hoping it’d be.
Youth of May: Oh, I’m into this. The soft, warm colors and nostalgic, melancholic vibe are beautiful. I love both lead characters so far, and I already foresee that hurts-so-good kind of pain coming.
Sell Your Haunted House: Thank goodness for Ji-ah’s directness in addressing problems the moment she learns of them. I hope this latest discovery doesn’t lead to too much angst. I’m not sure what Hwa-jung’s game is, but I’m ready for Ji-ah and In-bum to team up and find out the truth.
Sell Your Haunted House: After reading about how great this was, I had to give it a go this week. Jang Nara is hands down one of my favorite actresses — she rocks every role she’s in! I’m in love with her all-black wardrobe, gold earrings, and bold lip colors here. (Speaking of colors, the browns in this show are so deep and rich. It really adds to the whole mystical feeling of Daebak Realty and is so pleasing to the eye!) I’m super excited to catch up.
Youth of May: I’ve been highly anticipating this since my Lee Do-hyun deep-dive earlier this year. I was really interested to see how the Sweet Home siblings would go from a rocky brother/sister relationship to convincing the viewers that they’re falling in love, and I’m happy to report that they’re doing just fine. Myung-hee is a hard-working heroine with a backbone and is someone that you automatically want to root for. Hee-tae is very observative and I swooned whenever he looked at Myung-hee. I know this isn’t going to last very long so I’m soaking in all the cute moments while I can!
