    Currently watching:
    Knight Flower – it’s all about her actions and his reactions.
    Started Captivating The King

    LJW’s drama looks interesting, but why is it on Disney? Big sigh of frustration…

    1. Kay Avatar

      Captivating the King is on my list. Yeah, quite a few dramas making their way to Disney these days.

  2. Kate Avatar

    Currently watching Marry My Husband (Excellent!), Love Song For Illusion (only episode 1 so far but the set up is intriguing), and Doctor Slump (Enjoyable but nothing to write home about).
    I’ve added Wedding Impossible to the list.
    All others are a hard pass.

    1. Kay Avatar

      I’ll definitely be checking out Marry My Husband. Maybe Love Song for Illusion. Please let me know how much doctoring there ends up being in Doctor Slump since that will be the major deciding factor in if I check that one out.

      1. Kate Avatar

        Only 6 episodes so far of doctor slump but it’s not about the doctoring, it’s 2 doctors who have experienced difficulties and are dealing with it together and falling for each other. There is one yucky scene in the very 1st episode that forms the basis of PHS’s characters issue but that’s it for ugh warning. Otherwise, at least so far, not a medical drama the way so many of them are.

          That’s good to hear for me! If continues like that, I’ll probably end up checking it out 🙂 Thanks for the update!

    Just finished watching My Demon. Very good. Even the 2nd romance was good though it should of had more screen time.

    Rating: 8.5/10

      Oooh, good to hear! I still have it on my list, so I like hearing the good praises 🙂

    I just finished watching the Chinese show “A Love So Beautiful”. It was pretty good. The story follows a group of friends through high school, university and adult life. I was impressed with the ability of the cast to portray their characters through teenage years to adulthood and be very convincing in doing so. The supporting cast romance was very good and got enough screen time. And finally, the ending was also very good.

    On the somewhat disappointing side was the performance of the lead male character. At least in the first half of the show. He was rude and disrespectful to the female lead. In the second half the romance really kicks in. He finally shows passion and love. The show ends with the next to last episode. The last episode shows the male lead in character explaining his earlier negative actions towards the female lead character. I have never seen that happen. And it helped me feel a little better about his performance and the show.
    Rating 8/10

    There’s a Korean remake of this show. I wasn’t going to watch it but I see the female lead is So Ju Yeon. So, I think I will. I’m a big fan of hers having seen her in several shows such as Dr Romantic 2 & 3.

      That’s a good review for A Love So Beautiful 🙂 I did watch about 6 episodes of it years ago. I kind of liked it but had other dramas that were more interesting at the time (and wasn’t feeling the male lead) so I dropped it. I haven’t seen the Korean version. I wonder which one you’ll like better.

        SPOILERS. I finished watching the Korean show “A Love So Beautiful”. Since I had recently watched the Chinese version I decided to watch the Korean show to see how they compared. The Korean show was a later show based on the Chinese show.

        The Korean show was 90% a copy of the Chinese show. One difference was that the Korean male lead was not as rude nor disrespectful towards the female lead. As with the Chinese show the supporting characters’ romance was excellent. Like the Chinese show this show doesn’t become exciting until the characters leave the high school years. The Chinese show did a much better job letting the viewers know that the main couple had been intimate. Also, the Chinese show did a much better job showing the characters appropriately for their age and jobs as the years go by.

          Thanks for the comparison between the two. Also good know it gets better after the high school years as I didn’t get that far. Maybe sometime I’ll try the Korean version.

    Just started watching Doctor Slump. Seems to be good. I think its a from haters to lovers story. Not too much medical stuff, though there is some and their troubles are directly related to their medical careers the story so far is spends a lot pf time showing their relationship starting to change. Hopefully the show will rise above just being another hate to love story.

    1. Kay Avatar

      I’m still interested in this one, so if the medical stuff says light I’ll probably try it out. I do like hate to love stories as long as the hate doesn’t go on toooooo long 🙂

        The show is only 10 episodes. The relationship starts to change quickly. The show is fast paced. I’ve seen the 8 episodes available on Netflix, I have to wait for this weekend for the last two 8-(. There was only one intense medical scene (squirting blood, needles, scalpels, etc) Yuck! The show is a good mix of humor and drama.

        1. Kay Avatar

          That’s good to know! I can easily skip that, especially being at the beginning. I’ll probably check it out then 🙂

    I finished watching Dr Slump today. Overall a good show. The main couple was good. It’s the story of two doctors who knew each other in high school and meet as doctors during a time when each has serious problems in their life. The main romance was good but since it is a short series they were in and out and then in their relationship spread over too much of the available time. They needed more time together. The supporting cast romance had the potential to be very good (two single parent medical professional) but very little screen time was given them. The ending was a bit strange. The shows ends with the main couple being together but then there is a collage of short clips of scenes from their relationship which were not seen elsewhere in the show. For example, a short clip of the female lead’s mother walking in on the couple in bed together and being shocked. Were these clips just outtakes or shown at the end for some kind of affect?

    RATING: 7.5/10

      It sounds like a nice romance drama 🙂 Are you sure it’s already ended? Several of the drama databases are showing it’s 16 eps with an end date of March 17. So maybe there’s more to the story and that’s why the ending seemed weird?

    It took me a few minutes to figure what happened. The available episodes ended and since I don’t usually watch new shows where you have to wait a week for new episodes, I thought the show ended. But, of course, it hasn’t. So far, it’s a great show.

    Feel free to delete my original comment.

    1. Kay Avatar

      I’ve actually had that happen before too since I don’t usually watch currently airing dramas. I guess it’s a happy surprise to get some “bonus” episodes 🙂

    1. Kay Avatar

      I have heard lots of good things about it, so it’s great to hear more praise for it. It is on my watch list 🙂
