    I’m already watching Misty, which has been interesting so far. Of the new batch I’m going to check out at least Mystery Queen 2, Live and Children of a Lesse God. Spot a theme there? 😁

    There’s also as Cdrama (Siege in Fog) that I’ve been waiting to air and looks like it’s finally happening.

      I keep hearing good stuff about Misty, so now I’m intrigued 🙂 I can definitely see your drama theme for the month, lol

      Is it really happening? Is Siege in Fog FINALLY happening?! I’ve been waiting for that thing for over a year. Every time it gets within reach, it disappears again. But I’m very anxious to check that one out too. Here’s hoping!

      • Timescout says:

        Yup, Siege in Fog is actually starting on March 2, which is… tomorrow! In my timeline that is. 🙂 It’ll be airing 2 epsi a week, every fri and sat on Tencent. Hopefully some site picks it up so we can get subs but I’m going to check it out anyway. Not too hot on the epi count (50) though, as I’m sure it’ll get draggy at some point. But hey, that’s what the FF-button is for. *g*

          Well, count me as officially excited! It sure has been a wait! I guess I will have to wait a little bit longer though because I certainly need subs. Really hope someone picks this up. I’ve been waiting too long, lol 😉


          • Timescout says:

            Yes, it has been a long wait. Btw, it’s actually 2 epis every fri/sat, so 4 epis per week. I can’t read, evidently. 😅

            Watching dramas raw is now such a commonplace thing for me. I’ve also noticed that it’s often easier to asses a show when you have to rely on visual and other audatory cues than dialogue to tide you along. You tend to pick up things you’d otherwise miss and also get atuned to the mood of the show faster. The funny thing is that when I finally watch the epis with subs or read a recap there’s actually not much I didn’t get the first time around. 😁 Of course it varies from show to show. Some PDs are just better at expressing things than others.

              Oh good! So it will get done a little bit quicker then 🙂 I still haven’t tried a raw drama. Now I have watched some of my fav drama as well as sitcom episodes that I had already seen raw, but that’s about it. I still feel like I would probably try a light kdrama rom com if I was going to. Easier to follow plus I do know some of the language. But it’s never really necessary with most kdramas since they are so readily available with subs. Now I think I would still enjoy a drama like The Package raw. It had enough beauty and emotion to convey much of what was going on. Would definitely be confused with a lot of the jokes though, lol. Maybe someday I’ll venture into the world of raw dramas. But I definitely want to understand Siege in Fog completely, so I’ll keep hoping it gets subbed 🙂

    We have the same top drama pick this month! Lol. So many good ones to choose from! I’m pretty excited about Jang Geun Suk’s return in “Switch” as well.

      Alright! Yay for Grand Prince! I did have a hard time choosing this month though. Switch and Great Seducer are right there with it, but I had to force myself to choose, lol. Definitely some good potential this month!

    I’m waiting for “Are you human too?”. When will it be released?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Kay says:

      I’m anxiously waiting for that one too 🙂 So far we don’t have an official released date yet other than sometime in 2018. It’s pre-produced so it’s taking a while to actually hit the air. Hopefully, soon though!


  5. My pick is ‘My Mister’. Since I did love and did enjoy ‘Another Oh Hae Young’ to the highest level, I’m expecting too much from ‘My Mister’ since it has the same writer as Oh Hae Young. Plus, it has IU on it, so will definitely watch this one. 🙂
