Today’s challenge is on my favorite romance drama of 2020. At first, I thought it would be easy. I had a few dramas in mind such as Do You Like Brahms?, When The Weather is Fine, and Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Doko Made mo, and my current watch Cherry Magic. Honestly, I could list them all here but if you are looking for the ONE romance I love the most this year, then it would be Koi wa Tsuzuku yo Doko Made mo. Ever since it ended, I found myself watching clips after clips of the show on YouTube. I knew that I love it so much I was willing to dedicate an hour of my sleeping time to watch it.
I mean, what is not too like? Cold male lead and sweet and bubbly female lead? Just what I like! *giggles*
Today’s challenge, an older drama I watched in 2020, is fairly easy. It has been on my list to watch since it was aired. Back in Arizona, I used to work in a restaurant owned by a Taiwanese-Korean couple. My boss Minji, went on and on and on about how much she loved My Lovely Sam Soon was. Hearing it from her sort of push back my desire to watch it. I pretty much know exactly what the drama was about because of her. She spoiled it too much *laughs*!
Back when I was in Arizona, my boss kept telling me to watch My Lovely Sam Soon. I promised her I will but never had a chance. Instead, I watched other dramas… Fast forward 15 years later, I finally picked it up since it’s now in Kocowa. I thought it’d be nice to watch something classic and it’s refreshing. I could see the differences in terms of acting, fashion, makeup, and location. One thing remains the same. The yelling part. Hahahahaha
It took me forever to finish Find Me in Your Memory. I initially watched it on Viki but I do not have the plus access which got me behind on this drama. I then decided to continue via illegal site but you know me, I had this heavy heart watching the remaining episodes. By episode 10, I felt so guilty! Thankfully, the illegal site started popping those stupid X-rated ads that made me stopped immediately. I made an executive decision late last month to subscribe Kocowa. I felt so relieved again knowing that I am doing the right thing.
Somehow, I feel super relieved to watch another period drama. I don’t know why but I’m starting to get addicted to sageuk genre. Right before Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung, I was watching the Nokdu Flower. Though Rookie is less political than Nokdu, the fact that it is a period drama was enough to get me going. I know I will be adding more sageuk dramas once Rookie ends. In fact, I already have one in mind. Be on the lookout for my review, okay?
Yeah, Different Dreams and I have different dreams. I don’t see it eye to eye with this show anymore. I try my best to give it another chance but I just couldn’t. I’m not sure what it is that makes me lose hope. I get bored most of the time. Every time I see an opportunity for a story to reach climax, it did no go the way I wanted it to be. I get deflated too many times. Even though the story is based on true event and with some true real characters, the stupidity in some scenes got me frustrated. I feel that the show could have been better told. And better direct.
