    First! Hehe.

    Well, I have similar number 1 pick with you. It’s time for Eulachacha Waikiki season 2 and (though I’m a bit, just too too bit, disappointed that I won’t be seeing my Son Seung Won and Kim Jung Hyun again) I am still too excited to see different casts who also have big potentials. 🙂

      Woohoo! Yep, it had to be Eulachacha Waikiki 2. No contest. I know the feeling though. I’m disappointed that we couldn’t get the whole cast back since they were all so great together. But I get my fav Lee Yi Kyung back, plus we get to meet a new group that will be primed for all kinds of fun, new adventures. So mostly, I’m excited 🙂


  2. MyKDramaticLife says:

    Other than Waikiki, i’m not quite sure yet about the March premieres. Hmm, I’m going to try Doctor Prisoner and maybe Confession or Kill It.

    • Kay says:

      Oooh, going for the thrillers, huh? Aside from Waikiki, I’ll probably go for He is Psychometric. And then I’ll keep an eye on the rest to see if they capture my interest 🙂


  3. D says:

    I’m so behind on my dramas. But then nothing really I want to watch on this list except Confession. Phew!

      Looks like you caught a break! I’ve definitely been there where I’m actually relieved when hardly any of the new crop interests me because I already have so much on my list. From the new premieres, my only must is Waikiki, and then I will most likely watch He is Psychometric. I’ll be keeping an eye on the others though before I decide for sure if I will check them out 🙂


  4. Timescout says:

    I’ve been rather underwhelmed with 2019 kdrama offerings so far. Still, I’ll probably try out ‘He’s Psychometric’ and ‘Confession’. Possibly ‘Kill It’ as well. We’ll see how it goes. ☺

    • Kay says:

      Thankfully, so far 2019 has given me a pretty good selection. He is Psychometric is one I will be trying out too, as well as Waikiki. I may go for some of the others if they catch my eye later 🙂


  5. maandoe says:

    Doctor Prisoner looks interesting – and mostly because it will star Nam Goong Min. Who’s the lead actress – Nara as in Jang Nara?

  6. almiaramos says:

    In turn He is Psychometric and Big Issue. The others looks like the remake of the last two years dramas. I’m waiting for something interesting. but the truth is that the dramas in recent times all copy each other. I think I should continue to develop my patience ……. Je, je, je.

    • Kay says:

      Those two both look promising 🙂 It’s true, most dramas are fairly similar to each other. It’s hard to do something really new. But usually something will eventually come along. And who said dramas can’t teach you something…they even help you learn patience, lol 😉


  7. Marlene says:

    I’m currently watching Haechi, Radiant/The Light In Your Eyes and Touch Your Heart on Viki and Romance Is A Bonus Book on Netflix, so far so good I can’t decide yet which one is my favorite but Touch Your Heart made me smile and laugh a lot 🙂

    • Kay says:

      Looks like a good group of dramas you’ve found! I think I’m looking forward to Touch Your Heart and Haechi the most, but I am planning on checking out Romance is a Bonus Book and The Light in Your Eyes too. Hopefully, I enjoy them as much as you do 🙂


      • Marlene says:

        You will enjoy them for sure, you will like Romance is a Bonus Book it’s a heartwarming drama and Lee Jong Suk and Lee Na young are cute together but I like Jung Yu-jin, she’s always a delight to watch. I will be looking forward to your reviews on all these drama 🙂

          Romance is a Bonus Book is the drama I’m planning to watch next after I finish The Crowned Clown. I usually like heartwarming, so hopefully that means I will like it too! 🙂
