I got in three dramas for June which was a bit of an improvement for me. They included the epic parallel worlds romance The King: Eternal Monarch, time travel thriller 365: Repeat the Year, and rom-com mini drama You Drive Me Crazy:
The King: Eternal Monarch
The King: Eternal Monarch was a fun watch for me. The story of parallel worlds with one being the Korean Empire and the other the Republic of Korea was an interesting one. It was great to see Lee Min Ho back and paired with Kim Go Eun too.
I usually have a similar experience with Kim Eun Sook’s dramas. I always love the grand plots and world building with intriguing stories to explore. I tend to find the humor on the dry side, which is not my favorite, and the characters are very matter-of-fact at times. The finer details are a little rocky too. This particular drama tried to do a bit to much and had lots of plot holes.
The grand stories and high stakes romances tend to outweigh those things for me though. So with an interesting story, a big romance, a good writer, and solid production, The King: Eternal Monarch was a very entertaining watch. (The King: Eternal Monarch)
365: Repeat the Year
365: Repeat the Year is a mystery time travel thriller that quickly hooked me as it whisked a group of desperate people back in time to change their lives. Of course, nothing is ever easy, and they soon begin dying off. We then get a complex mystery to unravel with plenty of thrills and a story that is woven together quite nicely and has many layers to peel back.
365: Repeat the Year is a great watch if you’re looking for mystery and suspense. There are also lots of twists and unexpected turns. If you like time travel, it’s even better. While the drama didn’t give me a ton of feels, I quite enjoyed all of the thrills and seeing a well-written mystery play out with a unique spin on the time travel genre. (365: Repeat the Year Review)
You Drive Me Crazy
You Drive Me Crazy is a mini drama consisting of four half hour episodes. It’s very basic with the plot revolving around two friends’ changing relationship as they spend time together. I did find it to be on the slow side due to the simple plot and slice of life feel.
You Drive Me Crazy is a mostly light drama, but it does well at exploring the couple’s relationship with a bit of angst and some fun. All in all, it’s an easy watch with a straightforward romance. (You Drive Me Crazy Review)
So how was June for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
