      Well, luckily there are some non-romantic options just for you 😉 Although you might have to beware, romance could definitely sneak up on you at anytime in Dramaland, hehe


  5. Andrea says:

    Haechi looks good and I love Jung Il Woo, so I will probably check that one out. Also, Romance Is A Bonus Book and Touch Your Heart are a must watch for me.

    I am going to hopefully watch *Touch Your Heart, *Hot Blooded Priest (for my Kim Nam Gil oppa’s sake), and *Haechi (which is undeniably my pick this month). Also battling to whether or not try Legal High and The Light in Your Eyes (the first time I hesitated on a time travel drama. Hmmm..)

    • Kay says:

      I’m definitely in for Touch Your Heart and Haechi too 🙂 Probably The Light in Your Eyes too. Hot Blooded Priest probably won’t be my cup of tea, so I’m still waiting for a good chance to see Kim Nam Gil.
