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: The Veil, Yumi’s Cells, Dal-li and Gamjatang
Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha: I think I half-slept through Episode 9, but then 10 delivered what I really wanted to see: finally, that recognition between Chief Hong and Hye-jin. However unlikely it would be that they both came to this realization on the same night, I don’t care — it was a lovely moment, I love how direct Hye-jin was, I love how Chief Hong infiltrated her heart, and above all I love the prospect of them being in love and on display. Bring on the cute, we need it!
Currently recapping: Human Disqualification
Hometown: I’m always down for a good creepy drama, so I’ve been looking forward to this one. The cast is top-notch, and I like the vibe. It’s also fun that it’s set in the ’80s and ’90s. It’s not quite as horror as I’d hoped, but we might be moving more in that direction. So far, I’m intrigued.
The Veil: I like that everyone is a suspect – it provides more tension and makes the mystery more fun. I’m still surprised at how brutal this is; it’s more what I’d expect of a gritty OCN drama. Since these action spy stories aren’t always my thing, I kinda wondered if it’d be able to hold my interest in the second week, but Namgoong Min is roping me into this one, and I might just have to see it through.
Dali and Gamjatang: I freaking love Dal-li. She’s so refreshing as a character. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Park Kyu-young, but I’m pleasantly surprised by her understated performance. The drama is a little more stylistically over-the-top than I’d like, especially when it comes to some characterizations, but I’m invested enough in the plot (and Dal-li) to overlook it. Moo-hak is a bit obnoxious for me, yet Kim Min-jae manages to somehow still make him endearing. I could do with less yelling all the way around, though.

Police University: I’m behind (episode 11), but I’m still loving this show — and especially our little student team. While it’s by no means the most suspenseful or interesting mystery, these kids just make me so happy. Well, most of them… I really wanted to like Min-gyu, but it’s looking like he won’t get to do much other than try to get Kang-hee to him instead of Sun-ho — when what he really knows and likes is the version of her that only exists in his head.
