Dare To Dream: Not really my cup of tea. I lasted all of 44 minutes.
Hospital Playlist: Maybe, maybe not. Will persevere and let you know.

    Note from experience: HP is a slice of life drama. Try watching it slowly and with intervals, to avoid it getting boring or repetitive.

    Dare to Dream the first time I tried was a big no for me, then I tried again a year or so later and once I got past episode four (I think) it got a lot better. But it was a struggle to start.

      Dare to Dream leaves Netflix next month. With all that Kdrama has to offer, this one is in the not my cup of tea basket. Certain types just don’t interest me.

        It’s not one I would rush out to urgently watch either – I liked it but if it’s not your thing I wouldn’t force it!

      I’m not a fan of Go Kyung-pyo, Gong Hyo-Jin I didn’t take to and Jo Jung-suk is a bit prissy for my tastes. He played the merman in Legend of the Blue Sea and a King’s guard in The King 2 Hearts, I don’t dislike him he just comes across as a bit fragile.

      I gave up the struggle 44 minutes into episode 1. I really couldn’t bare to watch any more. But then I’m like something with a bit of oomph! Tale of the Nine Tailed is more me, love that. Fantastic.

    Dare to Dream / Jealousy Incarnate may not be everyone’s cup of tea. It’s for more mature audience, and the ML being a jerk is a big turn off to some people.

    However, it is the BEST romcom in recent years in my book with nuanced characters for decipher over the course of 24 episodes.

    I absolutely love it – every single minute in fact. Rewatched it twice already and it’s like fine wine, I love it better with each RE-watch.

      I LOVE JI too, and I think people are quick to judge Hwashin as a jerk when he is actually one of the most complicated and nuanced male leads ever written. He is actually one of my most favorite kdrama characters.
      You saying that it is for more mature audience is so so true. I have had too many cases of cancer around me in this past decade and I guess this show hits me completely differently from some other viewers.
      I loved reading how much you love it too. I have rewatched it maybe 50 times already.

    It’s so interesting to read the range of responses to DtD/JI. I watched the whole thing but didn’t actually enjoy it. I forced myself to, for some reason that I don’t understand. I applaud you for recognising it’s not your cup of tea and moving on!😅

    It’s also interesting to see that it’s considered a drama for a more mature audience – I’m definitely older but clearly not very mature!🤣

      Hahaha! I too am definitely older but obviously not very mature. When I look in the mirror, I am xx old but in my head I am 22!

        This is 100% my experience. I find it very confusing! No one warned me that ageing meant having to act my age as I certainly don’t do that!
