    Kairos and Awaken are both on my list, which probably doesn’t come as a really big surprise. Though up first is Search and Tale of the Nine Tailed. Definitely a lot of cool shows to explore before the year ends that’s for sure!😀😀

    1. Kay Avatar

      They do look like your kind of dramas 🙂 They look good to me too as do Search and Tale of the Nine-Tailed. I agree, we definitely have some promising shows to round out the year 🙂

    2. MyKDramaticLife Avatar

      It really is a quiet month. To the point that I don’t think I’ll be watching these premiering dramas soonest.
      My bet will be Birthcare Center I guess. 😊

      1. Kay Avatar

        Well, that gives your watch list a break then. A bit more freedom to get caught up on other dramas or watch more older ones 🙂

  2. D Avatar

    None of the new ones interest me this month thankfully. 🙂

    1. Kay Avatar

      That will definitely give your watch list a break! We all need that sometimes 🙂

    Currently watching:

    Search: WWW – started it just because Lee Jae Wook was in it, but ended up liking the story too. Jang Ki Yong is another bonus.

    Search- intriguing and suspenseful. Jang Dong Yoon has an easy-going natural charm, which counterbalances the grit of the story line.

    Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol – my weekly happy pill. Lee Jae Wook is adorable, and Go A Ra is charming. And the cutest little dog is playing the piano!

    Start Up – I like the leads, and the story has the irresistible rooting-for-the-underdog quality that makes me wait for the weekends with excitement.

    I am interested in Kairos and 18 Again. I am very disappointed that 18 Again is not available to me. Hoping that the drama stars will align in the future and make it possible to watch all the dramas I am interested in.😀

    1. Kay Avatar

      You’ve got a lot of interesting dramas going 🙂 I’m hoping to check out all of the ones you mentioned. Looking forward to Start-Up the most. There are seriously so many good dramas to choose from right now!

  4. snow Avatar

    Start Up and Kairos!

    1. Kay Avatar

      I’ll be watching both of those too 🙂

  5. MyKDramaticLife Avatar

    As for your reference: 😀

    Currently Watching/Done Watching:
    *Strangers from Hell – DONE watching last Nov. 1 – creepy, monstrous but hella thrilling and exciting!
    *49 Days (Pure Love) – now at episode 16. And I love it! 😍 Has my full eyes to Jo Hyun Jae – my newest bae. 😍
    *The Spies Who Loved Me – as part of my December 2020 entries – has very fun and exciting pilot episodes. Anxiously waiting for more episodes.
    *Elegant Friends – only in episode 7. Deliberating whether to continue or not. 😑

    Also Planning to Watch this November 2020:
    *The Guest
    *Save Me

    *Blood – still at episode 6. But not yet in the mood for more vampires. 😑😀

    Goodluck to all of us, dear viewers! 😊

    1. Kay Avatar

      You’re currently have a scary flavor to them, hehe 🙂 49 Days is a classic melo that I enjoyed way back. I’m really looking forward to The Spies Who Loved Me. Strangers from Hell looks good but maybe a bit too much on the horror side for me, lol.

      I excited to see you’re going to be watching Save Me! Very dark and creepy drama but soooo good. I hope you enjoy it 😉

    Kairos and Tale Of the Nine Tailed are currently the top KDramas Im hooked. But I’m considering checking on start up and search.

  7. Kate Avatar

    Loving Tale of the Nine Tailed so far and wanting to start on start up soon. Just finished Record of Youth and still working on Shine or Go Crazy. Busy kdrama viewing 🙂

    1. Kay Avatar

      Busy indeed! I’m really looking forward to Record of Youth, Tale of the Nine Tailed, and Start Up. Lots of promising drama 🙂

  8. Sahara🌵 (@saharadesserted) Avatar

    Your blog never lets me down whenever I’m busy. It helps me catch up! Currently watching Start-Up, The Spies Who Loved Me, Private Lives, and Dol Dol Sol Sol La Sol. I just finished 18 Again right now and loved it! What a cute ending. I’m busy so on air dramas have been an amazing way to unwind a couple times a week. Thinking of starting Tale of the Nine Tailed and More Than Friends! Have been on my list for awhile now but haven’t gotten to it. I finished Lie After Lie recently and is definitely one of my fave dramas this year. Watched most of Record of Youth but it was slow so I stopped, but I’ll give it another try over break haha. Thank you really for having this blog. This lists always help me out! Also hope you are doing well 😀

  9. Sahara🌵 (@saharadesserted) Avatar

    Birthcare Center and Awaken look good! Will have to check them out.

    1. Kay Avatar

      Hi Sahara! So happy to help 🙂

      Oooh, you’re watching a promising crop of dramas. Start-Up, The Spies Who Loved Me, Do Do, Lie After Lie, Tale of the Nine-Tailed are on my list too.

      Most looking forward to Tale of the Nine-Tailed and Start-Up. Those are next up after I finish Record of Youth, which I just started. Sorry to hear that one didn’t work out for you. I have heard a lot of people found it slow. So far I find it cute, but I can tell it will have a more laid back pace, which usually isn’t a great thing for me. We’ll see how it goes as it progresses, hehe.

      I’m doing as well as can be in this crazy year we’re all in. I hope you’re doing well too! 🙂

      1. Sahara🌵 (@saharadesserted) Avatar

        I’m glad you’re doing well! It really has been a crazy crazy year. Record of Youth is definitely cute. I think I just wasn’t in the mood for a slow drama when I was watching it. Hopefully you have a better time with it! I’m really enjoying Start-Up and I’ve heard great things about Tale of Nine-Tailed so high expectations for that one. I just started Birthcare Center last night and it is HILARIOUS. Definitely super refreshing haha. Stay safe!

        1. Kay Avatar

          Haha, yeah, I think you definitely have to be in the mood for a slower drama with this one 🤣 Hoping it’s still good though.

          Oooh, you’ve piqued my interest with Birtthcare Center. I wasn’t planning on watching that one, but it’s really funny? The trailers gave off this weird mix of a comedy makjang, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, lol

          1. MyKDramaticLife Avatar

            Birthcare Center also had me intrigued. Because many of the visitors of this blog seem like planning on passing on this one.

            So to be different I think I would like to try on it. Soonish. 😀

          2. Kay Avatar

            Well, Sahara seems to like it, so maybe we’ll both have to give it a try 🙂

          3. Sahara🌵 (@saharadesserted) Avatar

            I really like it haha. It’s very unique. It’s tackling mother life in a comedic way!

          4. Kay Avatar

            I’ll have to keep it in mind then since that sounds fun 🙂

      Ooh, you’re keeping busy! It looks like you have a great line up of dramas going too 🙂 I’ll be starting Tail of the Nine-Tailed and Start-Up soon. Really looking forward to those. Also planning on Kairos and Do Do. I may just have to give Private Lives a peek too 🙂

    Hello,pls which kdrama should i watch this month

    1. Kay Avatar

      I would recommend Tale of the Nine-Tailed if you like fantasy romance or Start-Up if you like workplace style rom-coms. Both were excellent dramas 🙂

  12. nora Avatar

    i’ve been watching penthouse: war in life and i’ve been loving it so far. the only problem i have is the subtitles. a episode comes out which we have to wait for 4+ days and then we have to wait 2+ more days for the subtitles. it’s not the biggest problem because i understand that the team works really hard to make subtitles and it’s a very tough job so it’s fine. the show overall is also very great, the acting is so good to the point where it gets you mad. like i always have to remind myself that it’s just acting, they all get on my nerves and it makes me want to smash my screen. and that’s what i love, it’s also very realistic and shows how manipulative people are. i definitely recommend it, it’s been my favorite drama of this year so far.

    1. Kay Avatar

      It’s good to hear praise for this show! I haven’t started it yet, but I plan to and am excited to watch it 🙂 It’s done so good and I know the cast is fantastic.

      I understand the frustration with the subtitles. Some shows take much longer to get subbed which is always disappointing. I get excited when a show I’m watching is one of the ones that actually gets subbed by the evening it comes out. Those are usually only the most popular ones though.
