    Reborn Rich is definitely my pick. Not sure if i will check out the others but if I do, it will most likely be Summer Strike. Im Siwan is brilliant and never fails to deliver. Run On is probably one of my favourite dramas of all time.

      Reborn Rich definitely has a lot of potential 🙂 Summer Strike looks like it might be cute too. Run On was a really nice drama, and I loved Im Siwan in it 🙂

    Tentatively eyeing Reborn Rich. Guess it depends on the scale of makjang. 😁

    Liked by 1 person

    • Kay says:

      Yeah, I know the makjang level could make or break for you, lol. I think I’d be good with either. I love a more serious revenge melo as well as an over-the-top makjang. So I’ll take it either way 😂😂


  5. I’m so excited for Reborn Rich! I feel like so many good releases are occuring recently and I just have no idea which show to commit to first 😭

    The Fabulous and Summer Strike look good. I’m watching Curtain Call and Love In Contract and loving them. And I’ve already dropped Queen’s Umbrella and Love is for Suckers. None of the others on the list pique my interest.

    • Kay says:

      Yay that Love in Contract is still going good and that youre enjoying Curtain Call too. Both of those look good to me. I’m interested in The Fabulous too, although it looks like it’s now been postponed for a while.
