    There are several April dramas that might look promising. ‘Her Private Life’ could possibly fill the fluffy romcom slot. ☺ I’m also tentatively interested in ‘Beautiful World’ and ‘Special Labor Inspector Jo’.

      It definitely has the potential to have lots of fun and fluff 🙂 Might expect some angst show up in the latter half though, hehe. I’m really looking forward to Beautiful World too. Have to get myself in the right frame of mind for it, since I think it will be a very emotional watch.

  6. MyKDramaticLife says:

    I’ll go with Dear Citizens as my pick this month. The couple looks very charismatic together and am so excited to see a cool fierce Lee Yoo Young. Also planning to see Her Private Life.
