    Some good things to look forward to, especially Mother and Children of a Lesser God. I think Mother is going to be exceptionally good 😀

    I started watching Radio Romance today. I kind of like it. It didn’t have great expectations though. It’s perfect drama to replace I am not a robot as in a light drama.

    I’m also excited about Eulachacha Waikiki! It look super cute and funny. I think Should We Kiss First will be a good pick emotional/melo drama too. I just started watching Hwayugi and I’m liking it so far! It’s funnier than I expected it would be and Lee Seung Gi is great as always.

      Haha, I literally just commented about this on your blog 🙂 Hwayugi is a drama I have been waiting for what seems like forever! I’m planning to finally start it next week. Lee Seung Gi is one of my 2 fav actors and hasn’t done a drama since 2015. Way too long! And my fav drama ever was My Girlfriend is a Gumiho which happened to be another Hong sisters drama. So I would expect some silly comedy that slowly progresses into more angst in the second half if they follow their typical pattern. But yeah, I’m ridiculously excited for that one, lol 🙂

        Haha I’m on episode 7 of Hwayugi and I’m definitely starting to get that vibe. It’s getting gradually more serious as each episode goes. I still haven’t seen My Girlfriend is a Gumiho for some reason! Every time I go to watch it, something else comes out to watch. But, I’ve seen many other Hong sisters dramas and they are definitely some of my favorites!

        • Kay says:

          Yep, that’s how their dramas usually go, lol. And that’s my favorite genre mix 🙂 Wow, you never made it around to My Girlfriend is a Gumiho? Being my favorite, I’ve watched it so many times! It definitely feels a bit older though. But for me, no couple has ever came close to Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah. I mean there are definitely couples that have more “swoony” romances and deeper relationships, but theirs just had something special for me that I can never get enough of. I can’t imagine another drama topping My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and or another couple topping that wonderful pair 🙂

          But if you have liked other Hong sisters dramas, you would probably like it too. I loved You’re Beautiful, My Girl, and Couple Fantasy. Master’s Sun was okay, but was my least favorite that I’ve seen. Hopefully, Hwayugi falls into the love category 🙂


          • Kimchi Korner Blog says:

            I’ll definitely have to watch that one soon! You sold me on it LOL. There isn’t much coming up that is an absolute must see, and after Hwayugi, I’ll be missing Lee Seung Gi. So I’ll watch it then! 🙂 I loved You’re Beautiful and My Girl too, and I liked Warm and Cozy for the most part. The Hong sisters have yet to fail me 😀

              Haha, well I really hope you enjoy it. It definitely won’t be as stylish and modern like Hwayugi, but it has such a simple charm to it. And of course the classic Hong sisters style of humor 🙂 It was the first time for me seeing Lee Seung Gi and it sold me on his charms. It’s also my favorite role of Shin Min Ah, and it’s one of those roles where I just couldn’t picture someone else playing it. And since you have a good track record with the Hong sisters too, hopefully it’s another positive one to add to your list 🙂

                Oh did you ever watch Shining Inheritance with Lee Seung Gi? That was my first drama starring him and love him in that one as well.

                  I love Shining Inheritance! It was my third Lee Seung Gi drama after Gumiho and Gu Family Book. I remember being so into that drama and loved every episode. I really liked that it was like a lighter melodrama mixed with a family drama. I would love to see more like it. I think any Lee Seung Gi drama is a good one to introduce you to him, so I can see why you enjoyed him in it. I’ve loved all of his dramas 🙂

                  Yes!! I agree…I wish there were more dramas like that. There isn’t anything Lee Seung Gi can’t do! 🙂

                  It really is a unique sort of drama. Sort of a combination of different genres combined with the time it was made. I just haven’t seen much like it. Maybe I’ll stumble across something someday. And yes, share that Lee Seung Gi love! He can do it all! lol 🙂

  5. Currently watching RADIO ROMANCE. Hmmm. It’s good to see Kim So Hyun again after Let’s Fight Ghost and Yoon Doo Joon after Splash Splash Love. Upnext to my list are HWAYUGI and PRISON PLAYBOOK. Kindly post a review of these two if you’ll be done watching them. 🙂

      I’m also really excited to see Kim So Hyun again. I loved her so much in Let’s Fight Ghost and have been looking forward to her pairing with Yoon Doo Joon 🙂 Hwayugi is next on my watch list too, and I plan to start it later this week. I will most definitely have a review soon after completion 🙂


      • My gosh, can’t stop laughing and laughing while watching Eulachacha Waikiki. It is so so so good and so so so funny. 🙂

        • Kay says:

          Yea! So glad to hear that 🙂 I can’t wait to start that one and am really wanting something that will make me laugh like crazy. Have you seen Modern Farmer? It has the same writer and has the same over the top style comedy. It’s one of the funniest dramas I’ve seen, which is why I can’t wait to check out Eulachacha Waikiki 🙂


          • Not yet. Will watch it if you’ll recommend it to me.

            • Kay says:

              Since you seem to like Eulachacha Waikiki, I would definitely recommend it. It also has a super silly and exaggerated comedy style with very quirky and endearing characters. Plus, it is very heartwarming over all. So yes, maybe add it to your list for when you’re next wanting a good laugh 🙂


              • Hi Kay! Yes, I’ll have Modern Farmer next to my list. But may I ask why is there no review for that drama on your blog?

                  Haha, same reason as Rooftop Prince. Watched it before I was doing reviews. Another shame since…I’ll go ahead and give away my final rating for you…it’s a 10/10 🙂 But I also have a rough draft drawn up for it and will hopefully find time between all my newer reviews to get both Modern Farmer and Rooftop Prince reviews completed. But I’m glad to hear you’re giving it a try, and I really hope you enjoy it!


  6. Good day, Kay!

    I’m currently watching Hwayugi and I absolutely love it! Watched Bad Guys 2 halfway and love it too but unfortunately had to wait for the rest of the subs when it comes on Netflix. From the list, which drama that you’d really really really recommend me to watch? 😀

    • Kay says:

      Good day to you too! Yay for Hwayugi! That’s what I’m currently watching too, and I’m also loving it 🙂 If you weren’t already watching it, that’s the one I would have recommended, lol.

      I haven’t started the others yet. But based on viewer reactions, I would pick Eulachacha Waikiki if you like zany comedy with heartwarming characters. I’m really excited for that one, but I do think enjoyment of it may depend on comedy tastes. For something darker, Misty is getting a lot of praise, especially if you like mystery melos. I plan to watch several on the list though, so eventually I will have more of a personal opinion 🙂


      • Yay for Hwayugi too! Unfortunately it’s ending really soon. But I’m looking forward for Kwang Soo’s Live 🙂 Thanks for your recommendation, i’d give a try for Misty! But i’m hoping it’s not another lawyer-prosecutor roller coaster again haha.

        I have tried Eulachacha Waikiki, man it’s so funny! But you are right. It does depends on comedy taste. I feel it’s more of a ‘awkward-humour’ kind of funny, that makes me wonder sometimes — “What the heck am I watching!?” xD but no doubt it’s funny.

        • Kay says:

          Yes, I’ll miss Hwayugi. I’ve really been enjoying the world it created and the interesting characters. I’m excited to see Lee Kwang Soo in Live too! So glad he’s going to have a lead role 🙂

          Haha, I’ve been a bit burnt out on legal dramas as a whole. I’m saving a couple spots for some upcoming ones though (Lawless Lawyer and Switch). But I still might check out Misty.

          So you like Eulachacha Waikiki? I’m so excited for that one! The last drama I watched from that writer had the same comedy style, and I laughed so much and kept thinking how crazy it was, lol. So really looking forward to it 🙂


  7. So many dramas, so little time 😦 But I’m trying to catch up with JDramas this year! Ack. I want to watch the Waikiki drama tho, for the cute baby! 😛

      Catching up is like a never ending job, lol. You should check out Eulachacha Waikiki. I haven’t started it yet, but I’m hearing so many good things about it. And that baby is definitely cute!
