September was a pretty great month when it comes to kdramas! I had some highly anticipated dramas to look forward to, a lovely drama that had been on my watch list for a awhile now, and a drama I watched on a whim and ended up disappointed. I completed four dramas this month, three currently/recently aired and one classic:
Scholar Who Walks the Night was such an enjoyable drama. It wasn’t perfect, but it had the feel of an epic fairy tale, and I would love to see more stories like this in kdramas. Lee Joon Gi was amazing as usual. I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect tortured vampire. He immersed himself in the role as did all of the actors. I was also introduced to Lee Soo Hyuk as Gwi, and I was thoroughly pleased with him. Overall, Scholar Who Walks the Night hit all the right spots, and I can definitely see myself revisiting this one in the future. (Scholar Who Walks the Night Review)
Oh My Ghostess was a nice little drama with lots of laughs and lots of cute. It had an interesting murder mystery, but I would have liked to have seen a bit more of that particular plot point to carry the drama along. The plot focused a bit too heavily on the relationships, but luckily, that element was very strong. Jo Jung Suk, Park Bo Young, Kim Seul Gi, and Im Joo Hwan were all amazing in their roles, and their performances really made up for the lack of a substantial plot. All in all, there is a lot of fun to be had with Oh My Ghostess! (Oh My Ghostess Review)
Hidden Identity is the disappointment this month. The first couple episodes had such an interesting premise, and I was so excited to see how it was all going to play out, but then everything fell apart around episode three. Boredom and shoddy police work sum up the rest of this drama. Of course, Kim Bum was great, as well as the other actors. It’ the story surrounding them that just didn’t cut it.

Padam Padam is such a beautiful drama. It’s story is unique with few drama clichés. The actors were phenomenal with the best bromance I have seen in a kdrama between Jung Woo Sung and Kim Bum. It also had romance, wonderful family relationships, fantasy, and even a little suspense. The emotions were so high throughout this drama. I felt so much hope and inspiration from Padam Padam, and can you really beat having Kim Bum as a guardian angel? (Padam Padam Review)
Well, that’s it for me. So how was September for you?
For the month of October, I hope to complete Yong Pal, A Tree With Deep Roots, and hopefully a couple others.
Happy drama watching to everyone!
