      That it does! We have a really nice selection to choose from this month. Good variety. It’s great that you are enjoying Crash Course, Poong 2, and Can We Strangers. I’ll definitely check out Crash Course and maybe Poong (still need to see the first part though).

    Blooming Youth is my pick too, but I’m going to wait till it’s done. Got to see how palace politcs heavy it’ll end up being. 😄 Heavely Idol sounds rather fun.

      Yeah, the palace politics is always the biggest risk factor in a historical for me, hehe. Hopefully, it doesn’t have too much. I think Heavenly Idol looks fun too and will probably check it out 🙂
