    My pick this month is also Crash Landing. I will also check out the following: Girls’ War, Black Dog and War of Prosecutors. The last two only because of the actresses. Otherwise, not the kind of shows I would check out. 🙂

      Definitely looking forward to Crash Landing and Girls’ War too 🙂 Yeah, Black Dog and War of Prosecutors are definitely not my kind of shows either. I see why you would check them out though. I’ve watched plenty of dramas just for the actors or actresses 🙂


  2. Timescout says:

    Stove League and Black Dog are the only ones I’m interested in. Chief of Staff is already on The List but I’m waiting till it’s finished before picking it up again (I watched few episodes of S1 when it was airing). Unless it goes stupid at some point, in which case it’ll get Das Boot. 😀

    • Kay says:

      Yep, gotta boot them when things get to wonky and move onto better things, lol. Hopefully, it holds on for you though. Stove League looks like an interesting one to me too 🙂


  3. Snow Flower says:

    Well, I like historicals and I like mysteries, so Girls’ War sounds like a logical choice for me. I will keep an eye on couple other dramas too to see the fans’ reaction. But first I have to manage not to run into any spoilers for The Tale of Nokdu!

    • Kay says:

      Girls’ War is a must watch on my list too. I always have to check out the historicals 🙂 Haha, yep, avoiding those spoilers is a feat sometimes. I’m also avoiding The Tale of Nokdu spoilers as I plan to watch that one next 🙂


  4. Kate says:

    Planning to watch Crash Landing once it’s mostly complete but I watched first 2 episodes of People with Flaws already and really enjoyed that so will wait a while til almost complete to continue. None of the others really pique me interest 😦

    • Kay says:

      Well, a couple to add to your watch list isn’t bad. I’ll definitely be checking out Crash Landing and Girls’ War. You’ll have to let me know what you think of Love With Flaws as I’m still undecided on that one.


  5. Snow Flower says:

    Girls’ War will be available on Viki under the title Queen: Love and War.

    9.9 Billion Woman, the former cop is looking into his brother’s death there is no sister!


    • Kay says:

      Fixed it 🙂 Sometimes those early plot descriptions they put out aren’t always right, and I don’t know until I watch the drama myself. Thanks for the update 🙂
