    Nice list for September! Lovers of the Red Sky (watched 1st episode and like it so far), Hometown Cha Cha Cha (can’t wait to start this one, trailer looks good). If any of these show up on Viki/Netflix I’ll give them a try (Dal Li, One the Woman, Lost, Yumi’s Cells, You Raise Me Up). September will be busy 🙂

      We definitely have some good ones to choose from! Glad to hear about the good start to Lovers of the Red Sky. I too want to watch that one. I’ll also check out You Raise Me Up (that one is going to be on Viki) and probably Hometown Cha Cha Cha. Yumi’s Cells and Dal Li look promising for me too. We’ll stay busy for sure! 🙂


  4. Overall, Kay, this is perhaps the best list of anticipated shows for some time 😉

    Still following Hospital Playlist and even though it’s not as engeaging as S1, it’s an ok watch.

    Skimmed through epis 1-2 of Red Sky. I’m a bit iffy about it, so have to see how I feel once I’ve watched the episodes properly. Yet to check out Cha Cha Cha but the overall concensus seems to be favorable. We’ll see.


    • Kay says:

      I know season 2’s are usually hard to equal the 1st season. It’s good at least it’s going okay for you though. Red Sky and Hometown Cha Cha Cha are also on my watch list 🙂


  6. MyKDramaticLife says:

    My pick is none other than LOST. I’m all for Ryu Jun Yeol of course. 😍 After a long 5 years of him not showing in the Dramaland.

    Am very optimistic with One The Woman also. 😊
