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: Racket Boys
On the Verge of Insanity: I’m really enjoying Moon Sori in this, but it’s hard to get invested in someone whose job is to basically fire people and to put the needs of a corporation above its workers. I know it’s an important job but I don’t necessarily find it that interesting on the small screen. I will say that it’s nice seeing Jung Jae-young on my screen, and I appreciated seeing a realistic depiction of a workplace and the hurdles mid-career and middle-aged workers face, but I’m not sure I’ll continue watching.
Hospital Playlist 2: I don’t know if I’m getting used to the long runtime or if I’m just getting attached to the characters. Either way, I’m glad watching one episode doesn’t feel like a chore anymore. I love the five friends so much, and I’m particularly interested in Seok-hyung’s story. I find him so sweet but so lonely — I do hope he opens himself up to love again.
Nevertheless: A little cautious going into this one, but I’m kind of into it. I already have it in my head that the relationship probably won’t end well, so I’m not getting my hopes up there. I at least hope we see some growth with Na-bi, and maybe even with playboy Jae-un. (Speaking of whom, this drama reaaally likes making me stare at Song Kang’s lips, huh?)
My Roommate Is a Gumiho: I like it! I think gumiho lore in general is so fun, especially when dramas like this play up the humor. But as swoony as I find Jang Ki-yong here, there’s no way I would give up fried chicken for him. Sorry, oppa.

Monthly Magazine Home: I’m behind in my watching, but enjoyed the first two episodes! It’s a nice by-the-books drama so far, and I mean that in the best sense — heart-filled heroine with gumption, cold hero who’s secretly wonderful, and a second lead to crush our brains. Jung So-min is always great, and she’s adorable here as the woman who’s striving for her own home. I’m not sure what our plot is actually going to be, or why she’s an editor that seems to do, well, everything, but that’s neither here nor there, because I’m here for her relationship with her boss and her battle for home-ownership.
