    Not looking forward to any of the shows premiering in April but I’m already watching a lot of the shows that started in March so that’s a good thing. 😀

      Sometimes it’s good to have a month that gives you a bit of a break from growing your list 🙂 I’m glad April doesn’t have as many new premieres because May is looking scary for me! lol


      • D says:

        I can’t remember what’s coming up in May. I will have to wait until the end of the month for your monthly post. 😉

          Haha, yeah, that’s probably the way to do it. But I’ll go ahead and spoil My Pick for the month since it will most definitely be my fav Lee Joon Gi’s drama Lawless Lawyer 🙂 There’s lots of other interesting ones too though!

  5. Demetrio Mosqueda Jr. says:

    Good day! My pick for this month is uri Pak Hyun Sik’s SUITS. Unfortunately haven’t finished yet with the dramas i started watching last March. I still have (on hold): Prison Playbook, Hwayugi, Black Knight, Radio Romance, and Waikiki. Was too busy with other stuffs last month that I couldn’t find time to finish them. But will definitely finish these mentioned great dramas some time. May I ask if our dear Kim Yoo Jung’s Clean clean something drama won’t be airing this month?

      It does sound like you have a back log of good dramas to finish! Hoping you find time to polish off the list soon. As for Kim Yoo Jung’s Clean With Passion For Now, it was originally supposed to air in April, but she’s been dealing with some health issues so they had to postpone the drama. For now, everyone is still signed on, but we will have to see how things develop in the coming months. I’m really hoping she gets everything worked out and feels better soon so they can move forward.
