    My pick is Dear M, unexpectedly. 😀 There’s something about that M that I look forward to watching.
    Will also watch River Where the Moon Rises and Vincenzo.

    1. Kay Avatar

      Oooh, that is interesting. I’ll look forward to hearing your thoughts on that one since I’m undecided on it. River Where the Moon Rises is a must and probably Vincenzo 🙂

      Ah, Kim Jung Hyun….Have you seen Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People? He has small but important role there, wielding a sword and brooding!

      Nice selection! River Where the Moon Rises and Secret Royal Inspector are on my for sure watch list. I’m still undecided on She Would Never Know, Dear M, and Hello? It’s Me. It will be good to see what you think of them 🙂

    River Where the Moon Rises is my pick for February 2021 as well. Currently watching:
    Mr. Queen
    Chuno – communal rewatch
    Just Dance
    Interested in: Go Back Couple

    1. Kay Avatar

      I’m so excited for River Where the Moon Rises! A historical romance with a warrior princess? Now that’s a must watch, hehe 🙂 Mr. Queen will be coming up soon for me. Ah, I loved Go Back Couple! So many emotions with that drama. I hope you like it 🙂

  5. D Avatar

    I’m interested in 7 dramas out of this list this month. It’s a big month. 🙂

    1. Kay Avatar

      It really is a big month. I have 6 I’m interested in 🙂

  6. MyKDramaticLife Avatar

    I also need to take a look at LUCA (since this one’s originally offered to JCW) and Times (because Lee Joo Young being a lead definitely deserves an audience.) to see if they fit my kdrama tastes. 😊

    1. Kay Avatar

      LUCA is one that I am interested in and will probably watch as long as it still looks promising after it’s completed 🙂

  7. MyKDramaticLife Avatar

    I am going to pause watching Mr. Queen (only at ep. 6 yet). It’s not that it’s not good. But I got distracted by other dramas on my list, and got busier with other things than dramas, in real life I’d say. 😀

    1. Kay Avatar

      Yeah, real life will definitely get in the way of drama watching sometimes 😂 Hopefully, you are able to come back to it eventually.
