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?
I started the show for Suzy and I ended it for Suzy. I love her despite her flaws. It is her sweetness that charmed me. Other than that, I think I was robbed by Start-Up. I was hoping for that young blood energetic feels and driven energies from the characters. Don’t get me wrong, I was able to feel it. But my disappointment was larger than that. I got some mediocre storyline that is superficial and unrealistic. It got my hopes high for a minute. I was sold by the beautiful skyline, beautiful cast, beautiful color scheme, and beautiful energy that this drama wants you to see. As a finance person, I enjoyed it for the bidding, the planning, and the dog-eat-dog world – even that, it was not brutal enough. You want all that? Try Akira to Akira and Midas. Continue reading
It takes me 4 years to finally watch Train to Busan! I have never been interested in any zombie shows or dramas. I mustered my strength when Kingdom and Kingdom 2 aired. Even so, I was too scared I watched them in broad daylight. Yeah, I am a chicken and wuss. I don’t do well with the horror genre. When I started to work from home due to COVID-19, one of the things my son and I decided to commit to watching different movies every night. Though my son cheated at times, I stick to the rule. Only unseen movies and of course, I suggested Train to Busan. I needed a friend!
This little gem drama is so funny I wonder why aren’t many people watching it. The format reminded me of Modern Farmer even though I dropped that drama. I love that Kim Ji Suk is the main lead – I really enjoyed watching him as the nasty King in Rebel. He really nailed the role. I did not see his previous two show but I feel that he did again in Top Star Yoo Baek as Top Star Yoo Baek! For some reason, this role is made for him. He has the cheese and he knows how to play arrogant cheese.
So yeah, I lied. I added Your House Helper yesterday to my list. However, I realized this drama is still airing! Thankfully though it ends this week and I can marathon it with ease. Speaking of marathon, I am currently on episode 19 of 32 episodes. I did not realize I have gotten this far. If not because of this morning’s hiking with the family, I could have been caught with all the episodes by now.
