Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching (October 14, 2023)
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…
Strong Girl Nam-soon: If I have to pick a wacky drama from the recent premieres, my flavor is more A Good Day to Be a Dog. But that being said, I really enjoy Lee Yumi. And anything in Mongolia. Also Ong Sung-woo, because that’s some next-level cuteness. Also Byun Woo-seok, because I’ve been his fan from way back in his YGK Plus model days.
A Good Day to Be a Dog: Important PSA: If you were like me and thought that our heroine’s awesome sister looked a lot like Ryu Hye-young, that’s because she’s her real-life older sister (!).

Twinkling Watermelon: I’m noticing a pattern where the odd-numbered episodes don’t really wow me, but the even-numbered ones pull me right back in. I can’t pinpoint a specific, consistent reason, but I’ll certainly take it over the opposite scenario, because at least it keeps me coming back each week and ends on a relatively high note. I’m apprehensive about where we’re heading with Eun-gyeol’s potential injury and Se-kyung’s complete (and rather frustrating) change of personality, but cautiously hoping for the best.

Strong Girl Nam-soon: I picked this up out of curiosity (and for Ong Sung-woo), and it was surprisingly entertaining. We all need a silly watch from time to time, and I think this will be my silly watch for the next few weeks.

Destined With You: What a weird drama! I love how it stayed strange and fun all the way to the end. This is for sure one of my favorite couples of the year (or ever?). And that was some crazy closet action for a K-drama. I thought King the Land pushed the spicy boundaries this year, but Destined With You challenged it to a duel and won hands down. Good job team!
A Good Day to Be a Dog: Haha! This drama is hilarious. I love the ridiculous sense of humor and the leading trio, which just strikes me as a perfect combo. It’s also fun to see teachers at the center of a high school romance rather than students. Things I like so far: the playful interior of the house, the adorably animated dog, and the sisters’ natural relationship (both actresses are awesome).
