November was a fantastic month for kdramas for me! I got in 4 dramas that were each fun in their own way. It was the slick melodrama Graceful Family, the fun historical Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency, the sci-fi romantic comedy Melting Me Softly, and the action thriller Vagabond that took up my time this month:
Graceful Family is an interesting melodrama with a murder mystery and a family power battle. I enjoyed our leads of Im Soo Hyang and Lee Jang Woo who both had good individual stories as well as our cold and calculating villain played by Bae Jung Ok.
I did feel like the TOP management group took up a bit too much screen time and many of the characters weren’t very likable. I didn’t get very emotionally attached to this drama, but there was some juicy family stuff and bombshell secrets waiting to be revealed. Overall, the script, production, and acting were all excellent to make for a well done investigative/revenge melo. (Graceful Family Review)
Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency
Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency was a great drama overall. It starts out pretty light with a lot of fun surrounding the Flower Crew. Nothing like a group of handsome men matchmaking to keep things interesting. It gets more serious as it progresses as the stakes for everyone become very high.
Even though I didn’t love the direction the love triangle went, I liked the mixture of humor and serious and thought the pacing was good all the way through which is something I always appreciate. The story was solid and the characters were both interesting and entertaining. All in all, it was a very fun watch. (Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency Review)
Melting Me Softly
Melting Me Softly was such a fun drama for me. I got hooked quickly and enjoyed it all the way through. It leans heavily leans towards the romantic comedy side with a dash of sci-fi surrounding the frozen experiment our main couple undergoes. The comedy is quite silly and over-the-top, but it worked for me.
Not everything makes logical sense and there is just a basic problem to solve regarding our couple being frozen and a straight forward villain looking to cause trouble. This part of the story isn’t particularly hard hitting, but it adds in a nice back drop for the romance and the comedy.
Melting Me Softly was just a wonderful watch. The sci-fi concept was interesting, and I loved all of the characters who made me laugh quite a lot. I also thoroughly enjoyed the sweet romance that blossomed into such a caring and nurturing relationship. Both Ji Chang Wook and Won Jin Ah were wonderful individually and a s a couple.

Vagabond was a fantastic drama that was jam-packed with action, intrigue, and life and death stakes. If you just go with the flow, it’s a wild ride. It had a great story with many talented actors.
Lee Seung Gi and Suzy’s long-awaited reunion was also wonderful to watch. It was great to have this duo back together again. Shin Sung Rok was very underutilized in this drama, but I still enjoyed getting to see him.
Vagabond was a fun drama on so many levels. The thrills just keep coming thanks to a great pace, intriguing corruption mystery, and consistent plot developments. The characters are interesting and sympathetic as well as being very entertaining. Action dramas of this quality and scale don’t come around very often, and it was definitely a treat to see.
