I managed to get in three dramas for September, and they were all good watches! I watched the fantasy romantic comedy Perfume, the supernatural romantic comedy Hotel Del Luna, and the coming of age drama My First First Love:
Perfume turned out to be a pretty fun romantic comedy that dealt with lots of difficult issues surrounding weight. I’m a fan of Sung Rok and was thrilled to see him be cast a proper lead for a change, and he was very funny here. Then we had Ha Jae Sook and Go Won Hee who did wonderful as the two versions of Min Jae Hee.
Overall, I found Perfume to be a pleasant, fun, and moving drama. It was humorous and had a nice little story going for it. We had fleshed out characters who had a chance to grow as well a very positive overall message. In the end, it left my heart feeling very full. (Perfume Review)
Hotel Del Luna
Hotel Del Luna was a fun supernatural series that felt very magical. It was also gorgeous to look at with luxurious sets and beautiful costumes. The drama was much more episodic than I tend to like with shorter ghost stories taking up the bulk of each episode.
But there was an overarching story that was very engaging and did a lot to grow our characters as they faced life and death stakes. Both IU and Yeo Jin Goo gave wonderful performances that I really enjoyed and had a romance that was very moving. It’s a fun series that had enough positives to keep me entertained.

My First First Love
My First First Love is a simple coming of age drama that focuses on changing relationships between friends. It nicely sets up everything as it introduces us to the characters, and we quickly learn their back stories and their relationship dynamics. The characters are lovable, and it’s easy to get invested in their lives as we watch them navigate life, romance, and friendship.
My First First Love is a bit laid back in its pacing which left it feeling a bit draggy in the second half, but it’s a mostly easy watch with likable characters to root for, plenty of warmth, and lots of feels. It definitely has some angst, but it’s a pleasant and cozy series that offers a nice break from some of the really heavy stuff. (My First First Love Review)
So how was September for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
