  2. There are so many on this list that I want to look at, especially after the last couple of weeks which have been “quiet” on the kdrama front for me. Bossam has turned into a great show at the halfway point. I hope it can keep it going (as I didn’t enjoy the opening episodes). Undercover is something I enjoy bit by bit – some great performances going on. Monthly House does look interesting. After enjoying Voice 1, I dropped Voice 2, so it’s interesting Voice 4 is happening. I am looking forward to No One But a Madman. I like Imitation and the one that has really surprised me is Mad for Each Other. The first episode was so so, but it has become a must watch for me. Law School wraps up and in the main is quite good. As for Sell Your Haunted House, just a great show 😊

      You have a really nice variety of dramas going there 🙂 I also watched Voice 1 but haven’t watched the other seasons. It’s great that it’s been such a successful series though. I’ve got my eye on Monthly House, My Roommate is a Gumiho, and maybe Imitation. I’ll have to check up on Mad for Each Other and see if I might like it. Definitely lots of interesting choices right now 🙂

    I am currently watching Bossam and Youth of May, and liking them. I think both have the potential of becoming classics. I will probably watch Hospital Playlist 2 and keep up with the word-of-mouth for the rest of the shows.

      That’s great that you’re enjoying both Bossam and Youth of May! I’ve heard good things about both of them. I hope you enjoy Hospital Playlist too 🙂


  4. Kate says:

    Watching quite a few on the list already and liking them all (Bossam, Doom, Youth of May, Haunted House). Plan to check out Monthly House, Nevertheless, Gumiho, Imitation, and Mad for Each other to see if any are worth picking up. June will be busy!

    I’m watching a few of these, Youth of May, Law School, Doom At Your Service and Imitation, but I think So I Married The Anti-Fan is my favourite out of them all! I don’t think you listed it tho. I am buzzing for Hospital Playlist 2, desperate for it!! I’m also excited for Nevertheless! I need to start My Roommate is a Gumiho at some point too. I’m so happy there’s a bit more variety, I’m not a fan of crime/thriller so its so nice to see some different genres this month!

      You’ve got a lot of interesting dramas going 🙂 I’m also interested in Doom, My Roommate is a Gumiho, Youth of May, and So I Married the Anti-Fan. And I agree, it’s so nice that we have such a great variety right now. A little something for all tastes 🙂

    Only Hospital Playlist 2 from the list is picking my interest. It would be great to see these five doctor friends again. 😊
