The first month of 2021 has came and went! I got in three dramas to start things off. One was absolutely amazing while the other two were just okay. They included the Taiwanese fantasy romance Someday or One Day, the very quirky The School Nurse Files, and the romantic comedy Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol:
Someday or One Day
Someday or One Day was truly something special. It pulled me in right from the start, captured my heart, and never let it go. This is a rich drama with so much going for it. There’s a big romance, bromance, friendship, and family. The story is captivating and executed beautifully. There is also an intriguing mystery element to the show that includes some truly great twists and reveals that I didn’t see coming.
The story is so unique and well-written, and I was truly impressed with how well everything ties together to make for an incredibly emotional story that really leaves an impact.
I was so invested in these characters and their love story as well as their lives. I laughed and cried right along with them on their grand journey to simply be with each other. It was a heartfelt and emotional ride that I won’t forget. I highly recommend going into this drama knowing as little as possible because it will greatly enrich your experience as you enjoy the amazing journey it takes you on! (Someday or One Day Review)
The School Nurse Files
I primarily checked out The School Nurse Files out of pure curiosity since I heard it was very weird, but for me, it really wasn’t to my own personal tastes. One strange thing after another is paraded out, and I wasn’t completely sure what I was watching or that I even liked it, but it was hard to pull my eyes away. But aside from a semi-entertaining first episode, the rest of the drama just didn’t do it for me and ended up disappointing.
If you enjoy weirdness, fun special effects, and heavy symbolism that requires deeper exploration, this could be a great show for you. But the outward story was slow and creeped along, and the happenings just weren’t coherent enough and didn’t give enough explanation to hold my interest. (The School Nurse Files Review)
Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol
Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol is a pretty straight-forward romantic comedy with a large helping of fluff that progressively gets more serious as it goes. The first half is pretty easy to watch with its bright characters and humorous story. Go Ara really shined in this. Her interactions with Lee Jae Wook were cute too.
The second half is more serious and kind of loses its way as the plot really wanders around a lot and includes some angsty developments that aren’t handled very well. Still, Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol was decent. It didn’t always feel like a lot was happening, but the story did progress and the characters were appealing to make it a good enough watch despite some big shortcomings.

So how was January for you?
