      I try, lol 😂 Aww, too bad you haven’t been able to get in very many dramas lately. It sounds like things are picking up though if things are going well with Eve, Cafe Minamdang, and Extraordinary Attorney Woo. I’ll definitely be checking out season 2 of Yumi’s Cells soon. Hopefully, a few others. I hope you find lots of time to enjoy some great dramas! 🙂
