    Oh Master looks lovely! And – I think I could be sucked into Royal Secret Agent. I actually was really looking forward to Joseon Exorcist until I found out it was about zombie spirits and not ghosts. I’ve watched a lot of Chinese/Hong Kong movies about exorcists and they are usually good. Zombies – they gross me out!

      Royal Secret Agent is on my list too. Oh Master is on the maybe list. Haha, yeah, I understand about the zombies. Joseon Exorcist will probably be a bit much for me. I do plan to watch last year’s Zombie Detective though since I hear it’s more on the fun side as far as zombies go. We’ll see!

    Two Song Kangs are coming! 😊
    But I don’t feel like checking Navillera out. I’m not quite sure why but it does not interest me, yet.
    But will surely check out Love Alarm 2. Have seen the season 1 and I need the second one. Hehe.

    But on top of my list this month is Mouse. For some reason, Mouse sounds unique and thrilling fun! LSG is big plus too.

      They are! We have two Kim So Hyun’s too 🙂 I’ve been waiting for season 2 of Love Alarm so I can watch the first season also, hehe.

      Mouse is a must watch for me too, primarily because of Lee Seung Gi, but the plot does sound good too 🙂

  5. I have been waiting for Love Alarm since season 1 came out! Finally I can get over that cliffhanger. I’m currently watching Hello Me!, Sisyphus, LUCA, and She Would Never Know. I was going to watch River When the Moon Rises because of Jisoo and now I’m not going to watch it because of him. I know he left the drama, but still I don’t think I can get through it because of him 💀 Penthouse has been on my list forever, but haven’t had a chance to watch it because of uni. I hope all is going well with you and stay safe!

      I’m glad you will get to enjoy season 2 soon! I have been waiting for it to come out before I watch season 1 so I can watch it all together 🙂 Looks like you have some good dramas going in the meantime. It really is too bad about River Where the Moon Rises. It’s one of my favorite genres, I’ve heard such good things about it, and love Kim So Hyun, so I do plan to still check it out. Hopefully, Na In Woo transitions into the role well for the rest of the drama. I hate seeing so many people’s hard work go to waste. You stay safe too! ❤

      • Love Alarm season 2 was a bit funky for me. It went in an odd direction, but I didn’t hate it like everyone else lol. Good that you waited because the year and a half wait was not worth it. It is too bad. I really love that genre too, but I don’t know if I can get myself to watch it now. Let me know if it does turn out well with the actor transition!

          Aww, sad to hear everyone hated it. I guess even though you didn’t love season 2, you weren’t in the hate it group, lol. I’m doubly curious now to see if all for myself, hehe.

          I’ll let you know how the actor transition goes in River too 🙂

    Adding Oh! Master to the list. Already watching River, Sisyphus, Vincenzo and Hello/Me. I wanted to watch Beyond Evil for Yeo Jin Goo but psych trillers cause me too much anxiety. And haven’t yet made the time for She Would Never Know and Royal Secret Agent. Not enough hours in the day for all those Kdramas!

    • Kay says:

      From your list, I’ll be checking out River, Sisyphus, and Vincenzo. I will also be doing Mouse for Lee Seung Gi and Beyond Evil for Yeo Jin Goo. Really hoping they suit my crime thriller tastes since I’m picky with them, hehe. There definitely aren’t enough hours to watch all of the kdramas we want!

        I’m looking forward to your Mouse and Beyond Evil reviews because I could never watch those kinds of shows 😦

          Haha, yeah, I do like the thriller genre, but I’m usually pretty picky with it. Both have interesting premises, but I’ll admit it’s Lee Seung Gi and Yeo Jin Goo that really have me wanting to check them. Here’s hoping they aren’t too much for me! hehe
