I have been wanting to watch Love Alarm ever since it aired on Netflix but work travel got into my way at the time and eventually, I started to forget about its existence. I only realized it again when I saw Love Alarm 2 promotion! Last week, I decided to take my time catching up with the show but needless to say, I enjoyed it so much I finished the first season in 3 days! Well, granted that it is only 8 episodes long, I thought the show is super decent and quite addictive. I am not a fan of high school romance but thankfully, the show moved on to college life after episode 4. Phew!
A remake of the original A Love So Beautiful? I signed up immediately! I enjoyed the original version which was in Chinese. I was worried that the Koreans would butcher it. I held my breath and started watching this version with an open mind. I am so glad I did because not only it follows the show exactly as the original (well, almost), I thought it is way funnier and cuter than the Chinese version. The soundtrack is cute and the actress, So Ju Yeon, is super adorable! How is she is 27?
Mr. Queen is my current crack drama! I never thought that this drama would be so good and so funny! At episode 15, I still found myself enjoying it a lot! Yes, I may say that as it has been smooth sailing so far but I know the sh*t is about to hit the fan soon. It is impossible to watch a drama without a storm, right? And as usual, when I started watching a drama, I did not know what exactly the show is about. I saw Mr. Queen‘s trailers and thought they were funny. However, when I started watching the first episode, I got really confused because the drama is set in the present time. You can imagine my confusion. Where is my Shin Hye Sun? Why is Choi Jin Hyuk on my screen? Yup, I was confused and panicked. I looked at the title. It says, Mr. Queen! What is going on?
Yes, you guess it right! I finally started watching Korean daily drama again! Bel would be so proud of me! It takes Hot PD (his nickname I gave in Beautiful You) aka Kang Eun Tak for me to come out of my comfort zone and start watching daily dramas again! And I cannot believe it my first daily dramas in a long time has to be such a trainwreck since the beginning! Do I like it? I guess I am! I mean… I am on episode 101 of 105 episodes! We are now in the extension period but I don’t know how they will wrap this show. Will there be another extension? *nervous smile*
I needed something light to fill my drama void and found To My Star on my Viki dashboard. Am I making an irrational decision by picking this web drama? I don’t know, maybe? *shrugs* Since it is only 9 episodes long and each episode is less than 14 minutes, I jump right to it knowing that the series will be completed by tomorrow. It appears that this series is a spinoff of Where Your Eyes Linger. No, I have not seen it and yes, I will add it to my list now.
Next to Mr. Queen, my current crack drama is Lovestruck in the City. Oh my goodness, I just love the concept of this drama! So refreshing! I love the first-person perspective convo in this drama. It makes it so personal and it makes me feel that I know each character a lot more. It is like I am their BFFs! Can we have more dramas like this? A drama of 6 degrees of separation/relationship?
