    Interested in You Are My Spring for July.

    I’m not loving Nevertheless so far but as it’s one per week I’ll continue to watch.

    Watching Imitation but waiting for it to end so I can binge the last few eps as I’m enjoying it too much to watch week-to week.

    Bossam has been good all the way through so looking forward to the finale this weekend.

    Loving At a Distance Spring is Green – not as light as I was expecting but solid.

    My current treat is My Roomate is a Gumiho – cute, light, fantasy, romance – summer goodness! and of course – Jang Ki Yong 🙂

    The Devil Judge is quite intriguing, might put that on my watchlist after finish with Bossam and Nevertheless. I think I need to stop watching the ongoing dramas and start again with the one which already completed or in their last episodes, you know, just to avoid the torture of waiting for ‘next week’ 🙂

    • Kay says:

      Agree, The Devil Judge has such an intriguing premise. Haha, I understand wanting to put a stop to the week to week torture. I can’t handle week to week and pretty much only watch completed dramas. I’m weak when it comes to dramas! 😂
