    The only one of the new batch I’m truly interested in, is The Tale of Nokdu, but I’m going to wait till the next 2 epis have aired before diving in. I may check out Extraordinary You as well, time permitting.

    Ten years ago I probably would have looked into My Country and Vagabond too, but I don’t have faith in either genre anymore. Korean action dramas especially just make me roll my eyes these days. 😁

  6. Currently watching vagabond and melting me softly! Both are sooo good! Vagabond had me hooked right from the start so I’ve been looking forward to new eps every week. I love the leads too! Melting me softly is really good too omg. I’m so glad to see Ji Chang Wook back I missed him so much. Healer and The K2 are probably some of my most favorite dramas. I’ll definitely have to check out others in the list when I have time in between university haha.

      Ooooh, that’s good to hear! Those are two dramas I’m so excited to start when some more eps are out. I can’t wait for the Lee Seung Gi and Suzy reunion, and I too have missed Ji Chang Wook and am so glad to have him back 🙂 We definitely have a lot of dramas to try to squeeze in these days, hehe
