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…
Mad for Each Other: I’m surprised by how much I love this drama. I like both Oh Yeon-seo and Jung Woo but hadn’t been that excited but this show after seeing the promos and reading about the premise. I’ve had enough of rage-y characters to last me a lifetime, thank you very much, and things like anger management issues, delusion, and paranoia don’t scream out as particularly entertaining. But watching the premise in action, it’s much funnier and more touching than what the promos first suggested. I don’t know if it’s possible to fight your way to inner peace and a better mental head space, but if it is, I have faith our two leads can do it.
Mine: For the first few episodes, I felt tired watching the show. Everything was so opaque that it felt like hard labor trying to decipher what was happening. I kept getting distracted too, like why is everyone wearing their shoes in their houses? Is anyone at the police station interrupting Sister Emma and her looong narration? But Episodes 5 and 6 have picked up steam and I love the way Hee-soo and Seo-hyun’s relationship is developing. And yay for honesty, truth and support beats a false peace anytime.
Bossam: Steal the Fate: Usually when I get excited about bossam time I’m talking about the food, but no longer. The show has single-handedly cured my sageuk slump. Please excuse me while I swoon over Jung Il-woo some more.
Currently recapping: Doom at Your Service
Youth of May: This week’s episodes left me with two main thoughts. One, how does someone become as awful of a human as Hee-tae’s father? Two, next week is going to be ROUGH.
Sell Your Haunted House: When are drama characters going to learn it’s never a good idea to hide things “for someone’s own good?” Of course it’s going to come out at some point, and then it’ll be even worse. Hwa-jung watched Ji-ah suffer and chase after answers for years, so I don’t blame Ji-ah at all for her reaction.
Hospital Playlist: I started this drama a while back but had to put it on hold. I finally got around to finishing it just in time for the upcoming second season. I’m not usually a fan of medical dramas, but I swear this writer could make me enjoy any genre. As always, the ensemble is fantastic, and the drama is filled with the warmth and humor I’ve come to expect from this writer’s works. I loved it, and now I’m eagerly awaiting season two to find out what happened to our lovely doctors!
