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…
Cafe Minamdang: I think I’m still watching this drama? There are moments I love (read: SIG) and then there are sections where I just don’t pay attention at all. One thing I’ve loved from the start, though, is the awesome OST by Jo Gwang-il.
Alchemy of Souls: In contrast to the above, I think I could sit and watch straight through Episode 20 right now if they’d let me. Each week I love the cast more and more; the world is so rich and fun, I just love “living” there while I watch.

Alchemy of Souls: This drama continues to be a highlight of my week (though sorry, Alchemy, ATEEZ beat you on that front this week with their new album!). Instead of jumping on the next episode as soon as it’s released, I find myself saving it for when I really have time to savor it, or when I know I’ll need a pick-me-up. With the action and intrigue picking up, though, I may find myself having a lot less patience before too long.

Today’s Webtoon: I was eagerly anticipating the start of this drama, and Episode 1 didn’t disappoint. I adore Ma-eum’s character and find her little fangirl moments extremely relatable, especially during the scene when she was working security at the webtoon event. With all the cosplayers and cardboard cutouts, it felt a lot like the anime and comic book conventions I’ve attended. And I’m not sure if there will be any romance in this drama, but I’m already swooning for Daniel Choi’s character.
Extraordinary Attorney Woo: I was wondering how this drama would handle the budding romance between Young-woo and Jun-ho once it escalated past the crush stage, and I think the writers did well to address the challenges that their romance is already facing or likely to encounter in the future. The road ahead will not be easy for them, but Jun-ho seems prepared to tackle the challenges — and his crappy friends — in order to be with Young-woo. That said, the second trial really hit hard, and I’m still processing my emotions. I just know I wanted to reach through my television screen, hug Young-woo, and assure her that she’s deserving of love, too.

Transit Love 2: I caught up to the latest episode (Ep 5), and I’m loving how wholesome the show is, just like the previous season. Gyu-min buying medicine for a sick Won-bin was such an endearingly thoughtful gesture, and the surprise birthday party everyone threw for Gyu-min was so cute. Tae-yi’s personality is unexpectedly endearing, and Ji-yeon has a very likable disposition. And then the twist came! Gasp. Also, shoutout to this season’s opening OST — it’s so good! I’m totally not biased or anything, heh. (Seung-sik’s voice is so lovely♡)
