November was such an amazing and fun drama month! I really got a lot accomplished. Regretfully, I did have to drop a drama, but I watched two wonderful new dramas and two amazing classics. So in the end, I completed four dramas this month:
She Was Pretty
She Was Pretty was such an amazing drama! It maintained some wonderful charm and comedy all the way through. Hwang Jung Eum was hilarious and endearing, and well, there is nobody quite like Choi Siwon! I was never bored and laughed so much. It also pulled at my heartstrings on multiple levels. Our characters were well developed and all marvelously acted. She Was Pretty is everything I love in a drama. (She Was Pretty Review)
Beethoven Virus is a wonderful drama. It has a well developed love triangle that stands out among others. The acting was wonderful with rich and complex characters. It was a very inspiring drama, and it showed that no matter what stage of life you are in, you don’t have to give up on your dreams. Beautiful orchestra music is also played throughout he drama. I suffered my first case of Second Lead Syndrome thanks to a wonderful performance by Jang Geun Suk and his adorable chemistry with Lee Ji Ah. I still really enjoyed Kim Myung Min as Maestro Kang, and a highlight of the drama was his intense relationship with Jang Geun Suk’s character. Beethoven Virus is a fantastic drama all around.

Sassy Go Go (Cheer Up)
Overall, Sassy Go Go was a pleasant watch. There’s nothing new here, but it’s cute, fun, and heartwarming. Throughout the drama, we watch our students come together as a team to participate in a cheerleading competition. We see them struggle, grow, and become closer friends. The 12 episodes passed by quickly, and I’m glad I took the time to watch it. But why oh why wasn’t Ji Soo the lead? Maybe next time… (Sassy Go Go Review)
I have to say that I really enjoyed Heirs. I like teen dramas that don’t focus so much on school and grades, but rather the characters and their lives outside of school. Heirs was exactly like that. It’s teen angst and melodrama delivered in a fun package. I was able to easily get wrapped up in all of the drama in this little world of the rich. It was a lot of fun and it delivered a nice dose of heart and emotion. (Heirs Review)
Story of a Man (Dropped)
Sadly, I made the difficult decision to drop this drama after 10 episodes. I really dislike dropping dramas, especially when I get deep into them. It’s a business revenge thriller, but thrilling it was not. Far from it. While the drama started off with a strong first episode, things quickly slowed down. I held out hoping the story just needed to really get set up and all of the characters in place, but things never improved. The actors were great and the story is decent, but apparently ‘business thriller’ is not my thing. I was getting more bored by the minute, so regretfully I decided to drop it. (Story of a Man Review)
As you can see, it was a pretty fabulous month! One drama didn’t work out for me, but there were four dramas that I absolutely loved. How are there so many great dramas out there? So how was November for you?
For the month of December, I hope to complete Bubblegum and a couple others. I may even start the epic Empress Ki!
Happy drama watching to everyone!
