Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching (November 25, 2023)

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: Perfect Marriage Revenge

My Demon: Either I was not in the right mood for this, I’m tired of K-drama theology, or I have to admit I’ll never get over my aversion to Song Kang (I blame you, Nevertheless) — because while I wanted this to work for me, it didn’t. Kim Yoo-jung was perfect, and I loved her scenes with Kim Hae-sook, but I won’t be returning for Episode 2.

Castaway Diva: Finally, Bo-geol smiles! I’m so glad we finally got to see the story from his perspective, AND my wishes from last week came true — we know, she knows, and he’s not even trying to hide how much he always cared for her anymore. What Bo-geol is planning to do now, I have no idea, and I’m a little confused by his sudden switch up from insisting to Woo-hak that no one can know, ever, but I can overlook a LOT of seeming inconsistencies for the sake of that smile.

Currently covering: The Story of Park’s Marriage Contract

Castaway Diva: Oh, thank goodness! When Woo-hak started regaining his memories, this drama had me a little concerned he would turn out to be Ki-ho, and I’m so glad he isn’t! Bo-geol/Ki-ho and Mok-ha are the cutest! And I just adore Ki-ho’s way of expressing his feelings, saying he’d be a lunatic if he’d spend 15 years searching for someone he didn’t care about. (LOL!) I’m also pleased that I was wrong about Ran-joo, who agreed to come clean to the public and support Mok-ha’s journey to stardom, even if her reaction to Mok-ha running away was just as diva-like as the rest of her. I’m bracing myself for this weekend, though, because it looks like our characters’ lighthearted camping trip was the calm before the storm, and Bong-wan is a pretty scary villain.

A Good Day to Be a Dog: I adore our leading couple, and now that Hae-na has acknowledged that she no longer has a crush on Bo-gyeom, I’m ready for more awkward Seo-won. Someone really needs to tell him to stop getting dating advice from YouTube — or at least subscribe to a different channel.

Perfect Marriage Revenge: I wasn’t initially planning on watching this one because (honestly) I misread the synopsis and didn’t realize she was going to get married to a different (infinitely more appealing) husband the second time around. Plus, I wasn’t sure I could handle the makjang. But, oh boy, once I saw the OTP and snippets of scenes on social media, I ended up binge watching the first six episodes. Did I show up to work one day after getting only three hours of sleep? Yes, but totally worth it!

Current/recent:
Perfect Marriage Revenge: This week’s episodes were the tiniest bit less fun - less OTP, more effort to make the plot hang together (why bother, show?) but it’s still crack and gets close to a perfect score on entertainment value.
The Matchmakers: Gorgeous, funny, swoony, and with just the right mix of cleverness and silliness. I admit, I’ve completely fallen for this show. It might be the Joseon-Detectives-with-romance that Our Blooming Youth failed to be.
Moon in the Day: I might still be watching this. I can’t tell. It’s a train wreck, wrapped in a blank stare, inside an amusement park.
My Dearest part 2: Grrr. I’ve decided to stash this bean in my pocket and have dramnesia about everything except the last 20 minutes, since that’s clearly part of Part 1 when this looked like it would be a different drama altogether. The timelines and time lapses in this show were absolutely nuts.
A Good Day to Be a Dog: Paused so I can watch (or maybe not bother) later when there are more episodes.

Older shows:
Fake It Til You Make It (Cdrama): This pulled me right in. The Pretentiousness Olympics make me laugh and shudder at the same time. Elvis and Elvira (that name combo is still cracking me up) are fire.
Stealer: The Treasure Keeper: Through ep. 3; so far it’s goofy fun despite being a dollar-store Healer, and Joo-won is having the time of his life. It’s clear the whole budget went to actors, costumes, and sets and the writing was an afterthought - if that.

Park’s Marriage Contract: Hmmm, not quite as much fun as I expected but ep. 1 was a lot of character and background establishment. I’ll keep watching for now.
My Demon: Way MORE fun than expected. Funny, pretty, and snarky, and the mother/daughter relationship is awesome. More, please!

Oh good question @attiton!! For 2023 C-dramas I watched this year, it's a two-way tie between The Starry Love (a xianxia with actual humor and lovely romance, twin sisters who anchor the show, and a FL who is the true hero and saves the world), and Parallel World (Lol you know all the reasons why 😁). For non-2023 C-dramas I watched this year, probably Sword Snow Stride closely followed by Joy of Life!

I also have a two-way tie: Parallel World and Fake It. They're just too different to rank against each other. And gawd don't ever ask me to choose between Elvis and Ye Liuxi. And in my dreams, I won't ever have to. 😉

Hopeful, I'd started TSL but I can't remember why I dropped it. I should try it again...but when? The current slate of live dramas. 😅

Re Moon: the most senseless drama ver, but... why can't I stop watching? I'm reminded of how I was hooked to Men are Men, and God knows that was ab awful drama.

I am also watching Fake it til you make it. Saw many comments about it, and as it's just 14 episodes decided to give it a try. Liking it so far, and by the way I forgot to add it to my post, damn!

@elinor - Happy that you mentioned Stealer: It's been on my watchlist forever and never appeared on my usual platforms, but thanks to your mention, I did a very deep dive on the web this morning and found it available (legal and free) and both Roku Channel and Pluto. While hubby binges on college football today, I plan to binge on this one.

Meanwhile, all of the other possibly interesting new dramas the last two weeks are the same: cute-meet romance. Stealer may be a mess (or so I hear), but it looks like a very interesting mess.

"Interesting mess" is exactly what it is so far! I'm watching it on Tubi (free with ads). It's remarkable how difficult it is to track down shows on Tubi and Roku Channel - it's almost like they don't want us to watch. 🤨

Watching:
Perfect Marriage Revenge: What a ride! I want to slap that weaselly ex-fiancee, I want to see the evil stepsister taken down a peg or three, I want the stepmother to be thwarted, I want to know what makes hot glasses secretary (*Secretary Kim*) tick, I want Do-guk to keep saying the sweetest things in the world and backing it up with swoony actions, and I want Yi-joo to get sweet, sweet revenge. Four eps to go!! WOO!!

Park's Marriage Contract: Really enjoyed the first episode! Looking forward to more. Lee Se-young is so funny, and Joseon-era Bae In-hyuk was the cutest 🥹

Twinkling Watermelon: (through ep 7) Cheong-ah and Yi-chan are so sweet 🥰 Watching slowly to enjoy the journey ❤️

C-dramas
-- Finished Joy of Life! I binged the last sixteen episodes as the plot dominoes started to fall into place. Reveals were expertly crafted, layer upon layer, like a conspiracy sandwich. A couple of realllly big reveals in ep. 46 means season 2 can't come fast enough! Now I understand all the comments I've read.... how could they leave a cliffhanger like that??? HOW??? Such a cool drama!! Highly recommend!

-- Finished Ancient Detective as an antidote to Joy of Life withdrawal. It was pretty awesome. A stylish, cool wuxia/mystery combo, with a bit of romance! Good production values, and I really liked the action choreography and fast moving plot. The ML is a sweet detective with amnesia, the SML is a sweet martial artist, and the FLs are part of an assassin sect. Cool duels and action in every episode. The background music is also quite good - I recognized some themes from Joy of Life. The first ep has a martial arts tournament, and it keeps up the pace from there. But ANOTHER CLIFFHANGER ENDING, DANGIT. Still recommend, though!! (@lapislazulii if you can find it, I think you might like it!)

-- Paused/Dropped Ancient Love Poetry at ep. 12 because I was promised epic romance and angst, but it's soooo slooow (*and kind of boring*). Sigh. Maybe I'll come back to it later?

I was so surprised when I heard it - they have A LOT of background music in common. I was wondering, is it open source music? Or did Joy of Life get it from somewhere else? The stories aren't related, so it's a mystery to me! But I LOVE the background music, so I was happy to hear it again!

Oh, thank you very much!! I didn't know it was based on a novel. Maybe I should read it before watching the drama.

COMPLETED
My Dearest Part 2 - Amnesia 2.0! At least our leads got their happily ever-after. But what about Ryang-eum?! I think the show fell short of the greatness that seemed possible in the first half but it still had some truly memorable and impactful scenes.

ONGOING
Strong Girl Nam-soon - They should have just named the show Strong Villain Ryu Si-o and rolled with it.

Perfect Marriage Revenge - The boardroom scene was super satisfying. More MILs like Lee Mi-sook please!

Castaway Diva - Still on pause…

The Matchmakers - Those notes and that ending - Jung-woo ended up being more self-aware than I expected! This show is a lot of fun.

A Good Day to Be a Dog - Yul was the star of the episode as always but the crush thing was unnecessary imo.

Vigilante - Once again Jo Heon and Jiyong together were the highlight. Show crams SO much story into each week that it feels hard to care for some of these characters.

Moon in the Day - Some fairly rational conversations this week! I knew Min-oh's obsession with his brother would lead him astray.

WATCHLIST
The Story of Park's Marriage Contract and My Demon tonight 💃💃.

C-DRAMAS
Completed Love is Panacea, Rising With the Wind, and Only for Love.

🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ to catch up with the Story of Kunning Palace now that express package is available.

Watchlist for next week - Love Me, Love My Voice (the novel was sweet + Tan Jian Ci!) and A Journey to Love (Liu Yuning!).

Live watches:
All shows have been on hold mid episode from last week so I am not left hanging after a cliffhanger ending. I am looking forward to serious binge watching sessions on my return from holiday. Most of the dramas I am watching and enjoying are on Viki and in the UK you can’t download😬 I am therefore avoiding the fan walls and weecaps to keep away from spoilers and won’t be able to read anyone’s comments on this WWW thread😒

So many new shows have dropped or will drop while I am away so I will have lots to look forward to watching on my return: Boyhood, The story of Park’s marriage contract, Soundtrack#2, and Secret Playlist.

Plane viewing downloads

Riding a unicorn - Japanese
Hopefully will be worth the watch.

Sweet Kaaram coffee -Tamil
I will finally finish watching this, I keep forgetting it exists because it’s on Prime and I never go on there.

Binge watch corner - aka filling the gap of live watches on hold

Worst to first: A teen baseball miracle - Japanese
Really great based on true events drama. I am hoping they don’t stop subbing this mid series as they have with other dramas I had to search all corners of the web to find. It will be another one to binge watch on my return as they will have dropped more episodes by then.

Ditto - film (2022)
Two students attending the same university become friends after meeting ‘online’ via a HAM radio conversation only to discover they exist in two different eras. A sweet campus story. Remake of an older film.

Webtoon corner
Second Lead Syndrome

Book corner
Rental person who does nothing: A memoir - Shoji Morimoto
I honestly thought this was fiction. It’s an interesting concept but very sad backstory of how he came to the conclusion that working for money was too stressful.

There’s no such thing as an easy job - Kikuko Tsumura
A woman on a mission to find the right job to recover from burnout. Somehow she keeps encountering bizzare people/events in these seemingly low stress jobs.

Kokoro (heart) - Natsume Soseki
Classic Japanese literature selected for the plane

Stolen focus: Why you can’t focus- Johann Hari

Happy travels @reply1988 and try to keep healthy. I have been a bit under the weather for over a month since returning from my overseas trip in October. Thanks for the 8 episode SWEET KAARAM COFFEE (2023) tip. It looks lovely and it is also available for US viewers on Amazon Prime.
My approach to traveling and trying to catch up on dramas while away has changed over the last year or so. In anticipation of travel I now pass on an upcoming cycle of dramas and try to wrap up as much as possible before leaving and return with almost a blank viewing card. Start anew. That is how I missed TWINKLING WATERMELON which I really wanted to watch. Glad to see it got great reviews and I really should watch it as an end of year catch up (and get a bean). Based in a quick look at my viewing card my bean count will be shockingly low this year.

This tip on traveling should have come sooner. Alas, I started Castaway D Up to ep 4 hoping to catch it in destination. Alas, the country was 4 episodes behind and was just starting ep1 a week after I got there. Did not bother to catch on new releases, but read on recaps and previews. The plane’s international fare had Past Lives but audio was bad. Trying to recall others I watched, but couldn’t. Should not have been memorable then. I guess part of the joys of being home is the bingeing that helps with jet lag. Good to be back home.

I am sorry to hear the lurgies got a hold of you. I hope you regain your health soon. This is the worst season for lurgies so you probably have had new ones jumping in just as you start to get better. I have been going all out on the immunity boosting food and as I am going to be in the sun I plan to be all over healthy fruit, veg and spices and enjoy the free vit D! I have been at home for most of the past two months due to my mobility issues so avoided most of the lurgie season. I just have to deal with the plane lurgies as best as I can. I am more worried about pain as my meds only dampen the pain to manageable levels but that amount of sitting will not be good so I will be getting annoying passenger of the year award for limping up and down the aisles. Hopefully the cabin crew will find me a place to wander discretely especially on the night flight home.

Yes I tried to avoid being left hanging with dramas but after a barren year my style of dramas decided this was the season to drop! Twinkling Watermelon will be a great binge watch so I hope you enjoy it.
I look forward to catching up on the WWW comments when I get back as that is where I get my best drama and book recommendations. Sweet kaaram coffee was one of those I would have missed if a beanie hadn’t mentioned it.

I think Noryang was filmed over a year ago, though, and he only has a cameo. It's not clear that Highjacking will actually happen.

I'm trying to remember who here said that he wears hanbok like it's his skin.

Well, according to MDL, Yeo Jin-goo:
1. Has a guest role in the film NORYANG: DEADLY SEA scheduled to be released Dec. 20; and
2. Has a main role in the upcoming film HIJACKING. (I can’t nail too much on this film yet but MDL lists also in the cast: Ha Jung-woo, Sung Dong-il and Chae Soo-bin, not too bad!)

Hi, for English fansubs for dramas, just check the d-addicts jdrama fansub map or the new drama-otaku website (registration required). if a drama or movie has subs, those two sites are most likely to have it :)

pls try to watch JP content directly through us fansubbers, sites like dr*m*c**l or k*ss*s**n just steal our hard work and upload our subs without permission.

Castaway Diva (Episode 7-8) - Mood: C-
So, the show used Chae Jong Hyeop’s smile to make me forgive it this week, smart one. Because what in the world was the combination of the Stairwell of Truth + Noble Idiocy + Love Triangle Bait + Noble Idiocy Pt. 2 arcs? Well, at least we had McDonald’s PPL instead of Subways PPL? To be honest, I’m not vibing with any of the narrative arcs right now. Oh well.

Perfect Marriage Revenge (Episode 7-8) - Mood: C
Oh wow, I always felt that the show kinda lost some of the magical spark that it had in its premiere week and I wondered if I was simply losing interest, but this week’s episodes delivered so much tea sipping and wig snatching! I’m not sure if there’ll be enough time to address time travel but the pacing has been so fast that anything’s possible. Yet it might very well crash.

A Good Day to Be a Dog (Episode 7) - Mood: D+
This is what you start the 2nd half of the show on? Dragging out the dog reveal so that random new villains can use it? The past arc is still at a standstill with the 2ML being given nothing? And don’t get me started on making Yul crush on Hae Na: I would absolutely hate it if that develops in any bit? Now I’m thinking about the inevitable boring damsel nonsense and sigh.

Vigilante (Episode 5-6) - Mood: D+
It’s a pity since most shows don’t often feature a protagonist working alongside their copycat but it’s hard to like the drama when it does as what most mediocre shows have done before it and just build a Big Evil Villain up for the climax. Ironically, I am most interested in finding out what Ji Yong’s friend has been up to but I think he could wound up dead during the finale.

MY DEMON (Ep. 1)
Heh this is fun! I’m loving our leads! Stories featuring deities, demons and other supernatural creatures always interest me, as they exist and operate outside the realm of human possibility and morality

A TIME CALLED YOU (Ep. 1-12)
I liked this well enough, but the twists were more engaging than the romance. Ahn Hyo-seop and Jeon Yeo-bin had zero romantic chemistry in my opinion. Instead I felt Ahn Hyo-seop had more chemistry with Ro-woon, even with the little screen time they had together. I’d actually love for both them to star in an another drama where they are the OTP. (Sidenote I finally get to say I watched a Ro-woon drama this year, yes it’s only a cameo but it still counts!)

Jeon Yeo-bin’s performance tho, was amazing. Her portrayal of Min-ju had me floored. The ending where she’s at breaking point, was incredibly heartbreaking to watch

MASK GIRL (Ep. 1-7)
I’m actually embarrassed to say I watched this. I’m actually more embarrassed to say I finished it. This show is easily the worst goddamn show I saw all year. If I could unwatch it I would. Look I initially thought this drama was a critique on how men feel entitled to women’s bodies. Nooooope. I was wrong. Dead wrong. Save yourself seven hours and skip this one.

The Matchmakers: This show is beautiful and funny and poignant and great. Our villainess is a great and complicated character where I didn’t even know to look for one. When she found out that our heroine was sneaking out of the house, I expected the situation to blow up right away. But since then what we’ve had instead is a series of great moments between mother- and daughter-in-law, and MIL stepping up to right a wrong committed by a member of her own faction even when it weakens their power. Keep it coming, please!

A Good Day to be a Dog: And the award for having the guts to admit affection for someone goes to… absolutely no one. Except for Yul, when he was pretending to be Hae-na’s boyfriend for an afternoon. I know Yul was very depressed when he saw them, but I thought the photobooth pictures were totally adorable.

Castaway Diva: Ki-ho’s secret is out and it’s every bit as good as I was hoping it would be. And that confession is going on my list of most memorable confessions ever. I’ve already watched it like a million more times.

See, I love that too about MM, and when Park's Marriage Contract started similarly (with the mother, in this case, knowing her daughter was sneaking out--although I LOVED that Mom ended up armed with arrows), I thought--I think I best wait and do these two fusion-sageuks one at a time??

I'm watching both MM and PMC, and while I liked them both quite a bit, there were several moments of confusion with both having old maids and bachelors, noblewomen with secret occupations, matchmaking, etc.

However, PMC looks like it's zooming into the present day with Ep 2 so that'll help keep them distinct. 🤞🏽

You liked the FL in TSOP'sMC ? I feel her character was written as a caricature of the societal views on women who want to be independent. Compare that to the FL in "The Matchmakers" who is also quirky and funny but carries herself with grace.

Live Your Own Life
Still no turning point in Hyoshim's family, even a random police officer knows that they should be nicer to Hyoshim. At least we are getting more of Taeho (and his banmal slips and American ways 😁) and Taemin upgraded his hairstyle and got smexier.

Perfect Marriage Revenge
I think I'm enjoying every second of it, even if it is Evil Stepmom preparing Very Suspicious Pills (in a gorgeous dress, of course). The highlight is still Lee Mi Sook and I can't wait for her lines (and dresses) this weekend.

A Bad Day to Be A Third Wheel
Yul, I love you and you are such a sweet boy... and I'm sorry that your third-wheeling made me burst into laughing. 😄
That trash-reporter didn't make me laugh and I hope karma bites him.

Unpredictable Family
Still mostly sweet and makes me grin.
The main couple is finally together, cute and all. But Second Lead Lady is not cute, instead of accepting the truth (and feelings of our Good Boy Policeman) she is trying to come between the main couple and get the Female Lead fired from work. Her obsession is clouding her mind and her acts may lose her her good name as a team leader.

My Demon
The first episode was funny and entertaining and full of actors I like. Kim Yoojung is amazing and shining and forms a nice duo with Kim Haesuk (ok ok, with Song Kang as well 🙂 ). Just hope the killer will not get too much of the screen time.

I think that the turning point may have arrived. It would be different if she were genuinely smitten with our ML but what has really been going on is just her fantasy.

She definitely was in a state of shock and
mortification after she had been caught. The fact that the ML was the one who caught her simply underscored the reality of the situation for her and her fantasy has to give way to fact.

The truth is that she knows that her misconduct could actually get her fired, and only the kindness of our FL and ML are the reasons it has not happened. She feels both like an idiot at this moment and all alone. Except her subconscious already knows that she really is not alone and that is why she calls Eun-hyeok in her moment of despair- just to hear his voice.

Even though she did not ask him to come to where she is- he does. Our final scene of the week is when he walks to her, and they are facing each other as the episode ends.

I think we may be at that moment when she moves on.

From the first scene, I was entranced. What is this (demonic) sorcery??? I feel like I "should" have responded like @missvictrix--that is what I was expecting. But, I like BOTH the ML and the FL? I, of course, love the adoptive mom...and also like the funny human sidekicks? I do get a vague...how to describe it?...Spooky King's Landing vibe. That seems totally from left field, but, anyone else?

Perfect Marriage Revenge
I'm on another plane today...last one for at least two months, I think...but that's where I'll be watching PMR from again. Heavens help the other passengers who were thinking of having a quiet flight.

The Matchmakers
Can't wait for our promised TWO episodes next week. Does the one episode delay mean though that we might get an extension????

My Dearest (skimmed for the OTP...but also secretly for Ryang-eum this whole time)
I need to watch the extended last episode still, and am glad I held out. Ryang-eum was one of my favorite characters...and I hear he got more airtime.

The Matchmakers: O Bong, O Bong, O Bong, you masterful snarker. He is the best part of the drama for me. Although Soon Goo and Sam Soon are a close second. She is so adorable and Soon Goo’s subtle reactions to her are so cute. The OTP has moments, but for me the surrounding cast is key.

Moon in the Day: I still continue to oddly enjoy this drama. Everything is so serious. The Silla era clothing is stunning. Everything is so pretty. I have no idea how this is going to end for Doha and Young Hwa. I can’t wait to hear why she finally decided to kill him.

A Good Day to be a dog: This continues to be cute. I am ready for her to tell him the truth now though. I guess next week is the halfway point, so hopefully we will find out then. I want couple cuteness for them.

My Demon: The first episode was fine, but the point was the set up. So I’m looking forward to when it settles into a rhythm. The outfits in this show though are great. KYJ looks great in her outfits, whoever the tailor is did a great job.

The story of Park’s Marriage Contract: Lots of drama here in this one. I enjoyed the backstory. Childhood connection: check, past life connection: check, terminal illness: check, love at firsat sight: check. This is going to be fun.

Vigilante: So, we have new villains and possibly new alliances. Also, Park Kwang Jae is always getting beat up or beating up someone, let the man be a gentle giant. The fights in this are so epic.

Castaway Diva: Unlike some other beanies I am fully in the Ji Ho and Mok Ha ship. They are adorable together. I think they gave us so much Woo Hak so they could play they silly triangle game. However, at the end of the day the drama is more about Mok Ha and Ran Joo than any love triangle. It is about their journey’s to being their best selves and I can root for that. PEB had that in EAW as well, a woman’s journey to bettering herself with love along the way.

CASTAWAY DIVA (E. 7-8) We get many background answers and a heavy dose of noble idiocy this week. Running away from your problems is never a real good solution. But then again, Ki-Ho confronting his Evil Dad is not a very good plan.

The problem is that we are not getting either Moe-ha’s Castaway or Diva story - - - the series has been sidetracked by side stories. She is bouncing back and forth between the filler arcs without any character development.

GOOD DAY TO BE A DOG (Ep 7): Even bottles of soju cannot break the shyness barrier between Hae-Na and Seo-Won. The supporting cast continues to shine, especially Mom and Yul, as their family dinner meeting was the highlight of the episode. But all the side high jinks are just delaying The Moment. It seems all the side stories are just here to put off Hae-Na’s dog kiss curse confession to Seo-Won.

First off. A petition to drama gods to spread the releases. My weekends are choked and nothing is happening during my weekdays.

Live Your Own Life - So they finally drove Hyo-shim into the cage of a money lender 🤦🏽‍♂️. I thought the man she called was her dad.
Aspiring actress Jung Mi-rim's character took a nosedive the moment she lost her senses and began fawning about a-hole Hyo-jun just because he successfully directed some short plays. And this is especially annoying cause while she took an hearsay and believed it, he scoffed at the complementary card introducing Mi-rim as a partner at a prestigious law firm. I don't know what the writer is trying to here but if last week was an attempt at showing me that this annoying, dependent on his younger sister's hard earned money yet being the most prick, unappreciative, very unthankful man and member of a mostly unthankful family unit is actually useful in some aspects...they're doing a very good job of eliciting the opposite reaction from me.

Hyo-shim had the chance to let hell loose on all her siblings and her mom, Hyo-sung included and the writer decided to blow it all away🤦🏽‍♂️.

Goryeo-Khitan War - Mokjong's death shocked me. It came too early. It was the very next scene after Gang Jo's coup.
Killing Kim Chi-yang? ✅. But threatening Daeryangwon? Absolute nope.
I'm looking forward to Gang Gam-chan's rise in the court, and the Goryeo-Khitan War. The war had better serve a semblance to Iron Empress in this aspect. I don't want to watch another repeat of the war situation Joseon faced in My Dearest.

My Dearest - It ended. Yes, it ended. I had very critical comments about this part 2 of the drama. They separated the leads for unnecessary reasons for far too long. And, it seems like they took a large Sohyeon's ideology and principles that he developed over his time in Qing and put in Jang-hyun so it was like I was watching CP Sohyeon through Jang-hyun instead of watching CP Sohyeon through CP Sohyeon. And for his Crown Princess, Lady Kang, I was very pissed each time they addressed her as Thief Kang.
@alathe thanks for leaving out Injo's death scene from the recaps. It was very satisfying to note.

I look forward to seeing Lee Chung-ah and Choi Moo-sung in something better. MD might have been a wonderful drama, but in my eyes, it wasn't for them both.

Nam Goongmin and Ahn Eun-jin really did their best to make this work. They were the selling point of this drama and they remained so, even though a 10 years time apart was thrown between thanks to the convenient designs of amnesia, they kept on selling the drama.

It is not easy to play a character that's unlikeable for most of the series. Lee Hak-joo and Ji Seung-hyun did well here. Yeon-jun pissed me off almost every scene he was in. He really was a pitiful character who lacked spine. Unlike his wife who although lacked strength had a great strength of character, grit and candor. Eun-ae leaving...

...him for whatever and however long or short time it was pleased my soul. It let me finally satisfy my wish to see how he would cope when he removes the 'stain that is tainting Joseon'. The arrogance. I can't believe he addressed his wife with such a stigmatizing term.

Ryang-eum...Ooof. Poor man. His dynamic with Jang-hyun is touching. And Jang-hyun's words in the finale when he knocked him out really hit hard and sad. "You must be mistaken. I can die for you but cannot do the same." I wished Jang-hyun let him hear those words right before he knocked him out. He might not return the affection Ryang-eum has for him in the way Ryang-eum wishes for it, both he does have an unfailing affection for Ryang-eum. That, was never in doubt.

Perfect Marriage Revenge - Praises. I like how Yeon-hwa put Jung-hye in her place. "Are you introducing yourself?" That line is iconic. I see why Yeon-hwa's husband is on Jung-wook's side. But what he doesn't realize is that his wife, Do-guk's mother is not Do-guk's side either. And with the way he's excusing Jung-wook's actions...I hope it doesn't bite him in the leg.
It is natural that Jung-hye won this round with the inheritance shares. It won't be s fight if our guys are always winning, issit?
Halmoni destroying the phone 😒. Why did you do that halmoni? Why? Anyways, I guess she has now known the truth but choose not to face it in detail. And what a way to bring Do-guk into the company 🤣🤣🤣. I destroyed the evidence of your scheming so you better suck up his return which you so dread and behave yourself.
Jung-wook's assistant...that woman is really trying very hard to do her job right.
All the Yeon-hwa vs Jung-hye scenes are an absolute delight.

Live Up To Your Name - Kim Nam-gil is a squishy fumbling bubbling baby here. So adorable.
Dr. Choe keeps oscillating between like and dislike.
And it seems like the man in the Joseon prison was initially from the current time but was mostly caught up in joseon but unable to go back.

My Dearest, pt 2: 5.0 They tried so hard to be historical/meaningful/profound while telling us about how horrible a certain period of Korean history was, and pointing out a dark side of Confucianism. All that is worth knowing about, but they beat us over the head with it rather too long and neglected to make the show fun. Also, amnesia is a card you can only play once. #gonewiththemind

Goryeo Kitan War: 7.9 Not a great show, but at least they keep things moving - a nice change from so many other shows. But with 32 episodes I assume they will have to spin their wheels and add lots of filler eventually.

Strong Girl Nam-soon: 5.1

Castaway Diva: 8.0 Ep 7: Guess I'll have to buy some eggs next time I'm at the supermarket. Ep 8 was a bit of a letdown.

Matchmakers: 8.0

Good Day to Be a Dog: 8.0

Moon in the Day: 5.5

Vigilante: 7.0

My Demon A Good Day to Be My Dearest Strong Castaway Demon in the Day?: 8.5 Some really fun lines in between all the tropes... and it looks like Kim Yoo-jung might not be playing Kim Yoo-jung this time :)
Demonic tropes include a blind date, an orphan, paying someone to break up with someone, falling over a cliff and sinking into the bottomless depths just a few feet from shore... No amnesia or childhood connection yet, but I have my doubts about the whole "orphan" bit. It's a kdrama, so...

Park's Marriage Contract: 8.0 It's like someone wandered off the set of Matchmakers and landed here. Worse things have happened. Like dropping dead right after your wedding -- where have we seen that recently? And if that's so common, no wonder Koreans are staying single or getting married later.

I wish the writer would learn from PMR. The leads dont have to suffer 90% of the time with payback at the very very end. I am losing sympathy for Hyo Shim pretty fast.

Unpredictabe Family
Leads finally confessed, there was cuteness, cheese and cringe. Cant get over the ML's mother making ML and SFL go to his bedroom to talk, when she visits to see how he is doing. So inappropriate. SFL is acting completely deranged right now and I am glad she got caught out. FL going noble idiot is prolly going to let SFL off the hook and FL fired. GAH. SFL absolutely doesnt deserve FL's brother, but looks like thats how this will end up. Double GAH.

A good day to be a dog
Loving this show, hope the leads actually get to complete even one sentence to each other, lol.

Perfect Marriage Revenge
Love this show so much, wish it would just go on for a year.

Castaway Diva
I love how Ki Ho just spoke his mind, no artifice. I wish that we didnt have the killer dad arc, but oh well. Atleast I get to see my fave leads.

Perfect Marriage Revenge: Only four episodes left! The first eight really zipped by and I have high expectations for the remaining quartet. Still plenty to do on the OTP's agenda. I hope they prove the best revenge is living well.

The Matchmakers: So much heart in this fusion sageuk. The number of charming couples rivals a historical C-drama. The stakes have been elevated by the cliff plunge and ML's realization of his feelings. Fingers crossed the assassination plot and the murder investigation work to bring our fave characters together without costing them their lives. 

The Dog Show: Need to catch up, but perhaps being able to watch episodes back-to-back won't be such a bad thing.

Moon in the Day: I appreciate this show the most when it's funny, even if sometimes the humor is unintentional. Do Ha's intentions toward Young-hwa have switched from "kill her" to "protect her." And she's fated to die before her 30th birthday. The drama

🤔 You are right, there doesn’t seem to be a 2ML…?! But I guess her late husband is actually some sort of “competition”. Their story is truly heartbreaking, and seeing how much she loved him… Yet, of course, I’m all for the OTP’s romance plot. I’ll just laugh-cry my way through.
