Add November to the books as another fantastic drama month! They were all so wonderful, and one was even a medical drama at that! So it was four new dramas and one old drama for a total of five in the month of November:
While You Were Sleeping
While You Were Sleeping is a drama that I was really looking forward to, and thankfully, I was very pleased with the drama as a whole. It nails that mix of rom-com-thriller that I so love by giving us an intriguing story with romance, laughs, and tension. It also delivers well crafted characters that are likable and full of depth.
I really adored Lee Jong Suk and Suzy as a couple. They are super cute together and give us plenty of adorable couple moments. I really enjoyed their supportive relationship, thoughtful conversations, and watching the romance blossom. The drama provided plenty of excitement with a dash of fantasy, but it was the characters, the relationships, and our wonderful couple that truly shined for me. (While You Were Sleeping Review)
Hospital Ship is a warm, character driven drama with a unique medical setting aboard a ship. It develops its characters well through their stories of tragedy and growth. The doctors felt like a family that we could laugh and cry with as we went along with them on their journey.
The show was a bit episodic for me as well as being slower paced. But it’s emotional story lines involving our doctors were well crafted, and I definitely shed a few tears. I grew very attached to our stellar surgeon, the handsome doctors, and the fun supportive staff. All in all, it was a very heartfelt and moving drama. (Hospital Ship Review)
Go Back Couple
Go Back Couple was such a special drama. It offers a truly moving commentary on what love and relationships look like as well as how life doesn’t always turn out like we had imagined. It delivers a poignant story that I found both warm and heartachingly real. At the same time it mixed in humor and plenty of joy to balance it out.
I truly loved seeing this couple grow throughout the drama. I was brought to tears so many times as I watched their relationship falling apart and then slowly getting put back together. Those moments of remembrance and appreciation that developed were so heartfelt. Go Back Couple moved me on so many levels. Such a beautiful examination of what love is and that it is something we should make every effort to hold onto. (Go Back Couple Review)
The Package is one of those laid back and contemplative sort of dramas. It moves along at a leisurely pace as we join a tour group on their journey in France. It’s a very pleasant journey as we join these travelers on a journey of exploration, self discovery, and healing.
And what a moving drama this was! The characters were very well developed being both nuanced and flawed. They were a very quirky and interesting group, and I cried right along with them as they struggled with life and love.
This drama made me feel very comfortable while also touching my heart on a deep level. It’s unique setting freshens things up a bit. It’s also the perfect drama for a pleasant and contemplative experience as you enjoy the beauty of France and go on a moving journey of exploration and love. (The Package Review)
It’s Okay, That’s Love
It’s Okay, That’s Love is a unique drama because of it’s focus on mental illness, and it doesn’t shy away from exploring some of the quirks and symptoms that come along with these issues. It sheds light on them with a nice balance of humor and seriousness.
Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin are an interesting couple for sure. The drama paints them very realistically and their relationship is both sexy and awkward. It was painful to watch their struggles, and my heart really ached for them. I was rooting for them both as a couple and as individuals as they worked through their traumas. Their story was very much a touching one.
While in some instances the drama simplifies some mental health issues, for the most part it does a great service by giving us a window into what people with these illness’ have to deal with. I was very pleased with the overall handling of the subject and would love to see more dramas take on these issues. (It’s Okay, That’s Love Review)
