February brought me a couple of fun romantic comedies in the form of To All the Guys Who Loved Me and Wild Romance:
To All the Guys Who Loved Me
To All the Guys Who Loved Me is a mostly light romantic comedy with a dash of fantasy, and it gets more serious in the latter third. The fantasy element involves past lives and our couple being connected over multiple lifetimes.
The drama has a lot of humor that is on the silly side which is something I enjoyed. The plot is pretty basic, but it moves forward slow and steady. Overall, To All the Guys Who Loved Me is pretty standard kdrama fare, but the fun nature of the show with just enough of an engaging fantasy plot combined with actors I really enjoy and and a great OST helped make this a very nice watch. (To All the Guys Who Loved Me)
Wild Romance is a 2012 romantic comedy with a slice of suspense and a serving of angst. It’s a little bit of everything with a unique structure. The first third leans heavily comedic. The middle leans angsty. Then the final stretch dials up the suspense. An interesting combination indeed.
Wild Romance was a nostalgic ride. While I never really loved our main characters and definitely did not care for the first 5 episodes, the rest of the drama was much better and had lots of interesting story and relationship dynamics at play. Comedy, angst, and suspense come together for a wild romance for sure. (Wild Romance Review)
So how was February for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!

I finished one drama in February 2021, The Fiery Priest. It was a rewatch for me, but I watched it with my husband, who really liked it. I am still rewatching Nokdu Flower.

I have The Fiery Priest on my watch list. It look fun and I’ve heard so many good things about it. It’s great that your husband enjoyed it. I also hope you enjoy your Nokdu Flower rewatch 🙂
Let Me Be Your Knight – Don’t know what it is but I always seem to enjoy dramas with Lee Jun Young. Most of them are fairly tepid and thin on plot but I must have some kind of soft spot for him. Even watched the Netflix movie Love and Leashes and thought it was good/fairly entertaining.
Beloved Summer – a bit slow paced but loved both leads and worried for a while that they really shouldn’t be together because they both seemed so immature for people in their phase of life but as series progressed some of that got worked out and seemed better by the end. Still not totally convinced but okay watch. Kim Sung Cheol was extremely wasted as a talent in this – so much more could/should have been explored with his character but oh well, the curse of kdramas.
Just Between Lovers – such a tragic story that I could only watch a little at a time but after watching Junho in Red Sleeve I had to see some of this other work – Wok of Love was ok but he was so good in Just Between Lovers I can’t wait to see more dramas with him.
Ghost Doctor – I would never have watched were it not for Kim Bum and Rain. Their onscreen chemistry and bromance was the only thing I enjoyed about this drama. By the end I was just holding on to see it to the end, not a fan of medical dramas but them together made this well worth the watch.
The One and Only – so very sad and fairly depressing to watch but the “excitement” of the plot of the first half of this series made it easy to get caught up so by the time the pace and story slowed down in the 2nd half it was too late to drop. Good all round but didn’t love the end.
My first JDrama Rinko-San Wants to Try was entertaining and thankfully short. I may try a few more over time but not racing to watch more just yet. Kay suggested another one that I’ve added to my watchlist so will see how that goes.
Currently watching: Lady and Gentleman (OMG when when the torture end), Forecasting Love & Weather (not loving but will keep watching for now), To the Beautiful You (okay watch, hard considering Sulli’s end), Twenty Five Twenty One (loving but worried where it will go).

So glad you enjoyed Let Me Be Your Knight. I’ll be watching it soon 🙂 Yes, Junho is amazing in Just Between Lovers. Very sad drama though. A difficult watch for sure. I watched it in just week and felt it, lol.
Looks like The One and Only, Our Beloved Summer, Rinko San Wants to Try were enjoyable for you which is good. And I’m sure Kim Bum and Rain were great in Ghost Doctor despite the rest of the drama not being so good.
Haha, maybe someday Lady and Gentleman will end for you 😂 Hope you’re other watches go well too! 🙂
