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 covering: Adamas
Alchemy of Souls: One week off from this drama made me realize how much I miss it, so it’s very cruel that there is only one more week till it’s over. I wasn’t exactly sure where they were going for a while, because the whole ice stone and less Mu-deok/more Naksu thing kinda freaked me out… but then that ending. THAT ENDING. It was pure K-drama goodness. And I don’t even like OSTs that much but when that song kicked in I was a dead woman. Let’s all hope next week is as good. (Also I have to add that even though I am firmly Team OTP, Won’s character kills me more and more each episode and this week I felt such sharp SLS pain I almost surprised myself.)
Good Job: JUNG IL-WOO!!! I only caught the first episode so far but I found it appropriately silly and old school — two things I welcome with open arms right now, especially when Jung Il-woo is delivering them. The premise is ridiculous, but the characters are fun, and I like the banter and humor very much. More please!
Familiar Wife: This is actually a question… I will be needing some more Ji Sung after Adamas is over as I am currently preparing for severe withdrawals. How is Familiar Wife?

Today’s Webtoon: I think my opinion of Today’s Webtoon is starting to sour a wee bit. There are so many little side stories going on at once, and the parts I’m most interested in seeing resolved (Pomme’s mystery stalker, Joon-young’s phantom noona, and Ma-eum’s love triangle) are getting pushed aside as even more characters and conflicts are introduced. I still look forward to this drama each week, but the more some parts are dragged out, the more dissatisfied I feel after watching the weekly episodes. I’m hoping now that we’re entering the second half of the show, things will start to tie off one-by-one.

Extraordinary Attorney Woo: I’m late to the party on this one—I just started watching it this week. I also finished it this week, lol. I was hooked from the first episode and I’m pretty sure it’s getting most of my beans at the end of the year. I could write a treatise on everything this show did right, which makes me a little sad that I wasn’t involved in the comments as it aired. Still, I’m glad I got to binge it because it was so feel-good I don’t even know how to describe it. (Uh… fulfillment?) Aside from some strange editing, especially in the second half, I think this is close to a perfect drama. I don’t want another season, though! Everything wrapped up so nicely, I prefer if they leave it alone.
