My Pick:

1. Psychopath Diary

Psychopath Diary Korean Drama - Yoon Shi Yoon 2

A Yoon Shi Yoon drama is always a must watch for me, so of course, my pick for the month is Psychopath Diary.

    Stove League is the only one in the new batch I’m interested in. Let’s see how it goes. 😀 There are also couple of cdramas coming up that might be worth considering.

      Dang, messed my tags in the beginning, so now it’s all cursive. 😂 Where’s the edit button when you need it?

        I’ve definitely wished I could edit my comments on other sites several times. It’d be nice if you could at least edit within 5 minutes or so of submitting a comment since right after you hit the submit button is when you usually see the errors, lol. I took off the italics though 🙂 But yes, Stove League looks like an interesting one!


  2. Snow Flower says:

    I am currently watching Vagabond and My Country. I also started Empress Ki to keep myself entertained while waiting for new episodes of the current dramas. I am looking forward to watching The Tale of Nokdu.

      You have such a good lineup! I watched ep. 1 of Vagabond and loved it. Got My Country and The Tale of Nokdu coming up too.

      And Empress Ki is my favorite historical of all time! Despite being a longer drama, I loved every single episode. Haven’t really seen another historical quite like it as it’s a bit different from most of them. Hope you enjoy it 🙂


      • Snow Flower says:

        Oh, the intrigues and the love triangles!
        The Emperor of Yuan is rather selfish and immature, but it is so difficult to dislike him. A masterful performance by Ji Chang Wook. Everyone else is good too. I like the music as well.

        • Kay says:

          Oh yes! I love, love, loved the intrigue and love triangles! Yes, the Emperor of Yuan was something else. I think Ji Chang Wook was one of only a few who could pull off that character which was so whiny and selfish yet still make him likable and sympathetic. I was impressed 🙂

          And I loved the whole cast too. This was a rare drama where I enjoyed pretty much every character, heroes and villains, which kept every scene engaging for me. That soundtrack was something too. I still listen to the main song, and it takes me right back. I could just go on and on about Empress Ki, hehe. I long to find another drama like it, but it seems like it’s just one of those rare gems.


    • kdramaandramen says:

      I am looking forward to watching Vagabond and My Country. I like to wait until the series is finished to start, but I am excited. I was a little surprised to hear that a lot of people were bad mouthing Vagabond as not very good, but I never let that discourage me from at least giving it a try.

      • Kay says:

        Oh, I’m surprised to hear a lot of people weren’t liking Vagabond. Definitely don’t let it discourage you. I’m 12 eps in and loving it, and Snow Flower has mentioned enjoying it too. It requires a bit of suspension of disbelief, but it’s fun and has plenty of thrills 🙂


        • kdramaandramen says:

          I probably just read the wrong website. It seems like more people are really enjoying it, which makes me happy. Suspension of disbelief isn’t a problem. It’s half the fun of watching a drama in the first place. I’m looking forward to diving into the fun and thrills. Thanks for the recommendation.

            Oh good! I’m so glad to hear that 🙂 I usually stay pretty unspoiled when drama watching (aside from general reactions), and sometimes it’s quite the surprise when I love a drama and come out to find that everyone else hated it, lol. It happens the other way around too though. Vagabond has been a lot of fun, so I really hope you enjoy it too 🙂
