    Currently watching Wedding Impossible and Queen of Tears – 2 of my favorites so far this year! Added Lovely Runner, Missing Crown Prince, and Midnight Photo studio to the list. None of the others pique my interest.

    1. Kay Avatar

      Yay, that you have a couple of good dramas going! Queen of Tears is a must watch and Wedding Impossible is on the maybe list. I also want to see Missing Crown Prince and Lovely Runner. So we have several strong possibilities to add to the watch list 🙂

    So many dramas so little time. I am only watching Queen of tears.

    1. Kay Avatar

      I know! How do we get them all in?! Queen of Tears is high on my watch list. I’m looking forward to it 🙂

    Missing Crown Prince sounds interesting. Also Chief Detective 1958. But I can’t find the related show Chief Detective. It would be nice to watch the one and continue with the other.

    1. Kay Avatar

      Missing Crown Prince sounds interesting to me too. Definitely on the list. Hmm, yeah, I wonder if the Chief Inspector series it’s based off of is available anywhere. It can be really hit or miss with older shows like that.

      1. beez Avatar

        I don’t know where we could watch the original Chief Inspector but I do know it had 880 episodes. Because if that, I don’t think I’d be watching even if it became available. 😆

        1. Kay Avatar

          Haha, yeah, that would be quite the time commitment there 😂

    queen of tears so good, currently watching wedding impossible

    1. Kay Avatar

      I have both of those on my watch list 🙂

    Just finished watching the 2021 Cdrama “Forever Love”. Very good romance/suspense. A nice change from the rom/coms I’ve been watching. The story is about a rich blind girl and her bodyguard. First Asian show in a long while I’ve seen that had some Kung Fu fighting. You know, where the martial arts good guy is attacked by 10 bad guys with knives and steel poles. Of course they attack him one at a time rather then in groups so the good guy walks away and the bad guys are on the ground.

    One of the first female leads I’ve seen that wasn’t a super thin model type.

    I was completely fooled going into the the last two episodes. The scriptwriter did an excellent job. SPOILER: I was totally convinced the male lead was killed but he wasn’t. Good ending but too open ended.

    Rating 8/10

      Haha, yeah, I think we all know that scene in a martial arts movie! 😂 You’ve been having good luck with the cdramas lately 🙂

    Starting to watch the historical drama Lovers of the Red Sky.

    1. sovietredstar Avatar

      Change of plans. Based on Kay’s review I’m going to start watching Modern Farmer.

      1. Kay Avatar

        Yay! Good luck with Modern Farmer! Hopefully, since you liked Gaus Electronics, you’ll like this one too. It’s a similar zany comedy style with another excellent performance from Kwak Dong Yeon 🙂

  8. sovietredstar Avatar

    Just finished watching the first episode of Lovers of the Red Sky. It seems to be a historical fantasy romance drama. Very good.

    1. Kay Avatar

      I still have that one on my list. Definitely let me know how it goes 🙂

      1. sovietredstar Avatar

        I just finished watching Lovers of the Red Sky. WOW! Make an effect to see this one. There’s more I’d like to say but I’d be getting into spoilers. Rating 9/10

        1. Kay Avatar

          Oooh, that does sound enticing! I have had it on The List since it came out and thought it looked really good. Hopefully, I can get around to checking it out 🙂
