    Just started “The Great Show”. So far, so good! This is a total turnaround from my last watch “60 days Designated Survivor”, which was one of the best Kdramas I’ve seen in the last year.

      Oh that’s good to hear. I hadn’t decided on whether to check out The Great Show or not. I’m definitely looking forward to Designated Survivor. Hoping to get it in this month. I really enjoyed the first season of the American series, so I’m hoping for a similar experience with the Korean version 🙂


  3. Timescout says:

    Now that I’ve put The Untamed to bed and Novoland is almost finished too, I can finally concentrate on other dramas. 🙂 “The Great Show ” sounds rather hilarous, so I’m going to take a look on that. Of the upcoming ones I’ll probably check out “July Found by Chance” and “The Tale of Nokdu.

      Let me know what you think of The Great Show. I’m still undecided on that one, but it looks like it might be fun. I think The Tale of Nokdu and July Found By Chance looks promising too 🙂


  4. Snow Flower says:

    I am currently watching Mr. Temporary (Class of Lies) and Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung. I want to finish Arthdal Chronicles. I am interested in Vagabond and Melting Me Softly. Plus, there are two fluffy sageuks too. I am also interested in Hotel del Luna, When the Devil Calls Your Name, and I wanna Hear Your Song…So many dramas…I just will have to wait until most of them have finished their run and do a binge watch later. But then, My Country is coming in October…

      Aren’t there so many to choose from?! You have a long watch list like me, hehe. I’ll probably check out all of the ones you mentioned. I’m going for Hotel Del Luna now and Arthdal Chronicles soon after since one is done and the other is nearing the end. Then some of the others should be coming do not too long afterwards. Gotta get them all in somehow! 🙂


  5. Oh my god I am so behind!!! I’ve only been watching Hotel Del Luna. I just finished Rookie Historian and Designated Survivor. There is so much to watch, but so little time ahhh.

      I feel like I’m always behind, lol. But I’m watching Hotel Del Luna right now too! I’m about halfway through 🙂 I’ve got Rookie Historian and Designated Survivor on my upcoming list too.

    Oh em! This month has by far the greatest premiers ever. I have so many dramas in my hand already. So I won’t say any specific drama I’d want from this batch.
