I’m so behind in all my dramas right now that it has unsettled my whole (drama) schedule. That means now I need to bend over backwards to finish them and can’t sleep like a log, to match the upcoming another stream of dramas next week. But what’s going on in my drama world, here is a summary:
High School King Of Savvy
I’m on episode 10. And that was like a decade ago! I’ve given it the least priority as I started it when it was already halfway in its run. So in order to catch up on live shows, this cutie got shifted behind. But I’m enjoying it thoroughly and Seo In Guk is a darling. He is effortlessly charming and warm. I’m not too sold on the main romance but find it cute and not icky as both match in their frequency. And it’s a very innocent love. Also, thank you Show for introducing me to the hotness called Lee Soo Hyuk. I think the remarkable thing about this drama is that even when they have taken a larger-than-life basic concept, they’ve executed it with so much groundedness and realness in characters.
Fated To Love You
This week’s episodes are still remaining to be watched and I can’t wait for all the fun after that time skip. Last week was really gloomy for all of us but now that the storm has passed, I hope we’ll be back to the magic that generates when Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara are together. I can understand all that noble idiocy and also went mad about it but it was bound to happen at some point and now that it’s over and done with, I’m hoping for some rainbows and unicorns. Plus, we see Jang Hyuk in that new hairdo and man, he looks sooooo handsome! Despite my initial dislike of long hair, I actually started liking him in that as well, but I’m crazy for men with short hair, so yeah, I’m happier now!
Marriage Not Dating
I’m enjoying the OTP and laughter and candidness of this show. But I have to say that the second leads (Yeo Reum, Se Ah and Hyun Hee) are least interesting people and also I don’t like the two ladies at all. So my hopes that this show would give us some good multiple pairings has been dashed. Not to mention all the makjang-ness attached with Se Ah. But apart from this, I like everything. I do think that Jang Mi and Gi Tae are somewhat running around the circles with their feelings and reactions, and the drama is taking too much time to bring them together. But the next previews look promising.
Upcoming dramas premiering next week
I’m really looking forward to tvN’s My Secret Hotel as I love the cast and find the premise an intriguing mix of romance and mystery. Next on my watchlist is Discovery Of Romance as it’s a reunion between Eric and Jung Yumi and this time in a very lovey-dovey and light-hearted atmosphere, which is as different from their last Que Sera Sera as day is from night. Also I like the whole cast ensemble, so the uninspired premise doesn’t look dull and I’m always ready for a good rom-com. I haven’t seen any shows from the I Need Romance franchise (the same team is producing this drama) and so there is no chance of making me say “same old, same old”.
