    omg I haven’t been on your site in so long it’s so different now! I’ve been so busy but I’ve been meaning to look at your 10 drama lists again! Looking forward to watching more on air dramas again ty for your lists as always 🙂

      Hi Sahara! Glad to see you back 🙂 Yes, the site actually just recently got a big redesign to improve some things. I hope you find some great dramas to watch on the lists. There have been some really good ones recently 🙂

        the website is looking great love it! I watched lovely runner recently and now I’m feeling empty haha it was so good. Need to pick some new ones up

        1. Kay Avatar

          Thank you! Lovely Runner is on my soon to watch list. I’ve been hearing such good things about it, so it’s great that you loved it too. I definitely know the void that can be left behind after watching a good drama. It’s the worst! 😅

    I am waiting for reviews of The Atypical Family before I commit to watching it. Meanwhile, I started a rewatch of The Tale of Nokdu.

      Aww, I loved The Tale of Nokdu! That was such a good drama 🙂

    I am waiting 4 days for new episodes to be available on two shows I’m watching. Here’s what I think of them so far.

    Dare to Love Me: The male lead is a member of a village community in or near modern day Seoul that lives as if they are living in the Joseon Dynasty era. Somewhat like the Amish in the USA. I was expecting a lightweight rom/com. But the show is a pleasant surprise. Great chemistry between the leads. The second romance is good. Two seniors discovering each other. You don’t usually see a romance of an older (60?) couple on Kdramas. Light humor but very emotional at times. And overall a very good story about a traditional community trying to live near a major modern city. The show has the potential of being truly outstanding.

    The Midnight Romance in Hagwon: The show is about a teacher at an academy (tutoring school.) and her former student, who is now a teacher at the same academy. There is an age difference of about 10 years. She is worried about the perceptions of society on an older woman dating a younger man, a man who was her student.

    So far the show is good. Good chemistry. Second romance is okay. Well worth watching.

      Both sound promising. I definitely want to check out Dare to Love Me. I like both of the leads. Midnight Romance is on the maybe list until it’ completed. I hope they both stay good for you 🙂

    Hi ! Not sure if it’s okay to ask here but I’m watching Crash and I’m sad it’s almost over soon 😭 I love the dynamic between the characters (the partnership and potential subtle romance) as well as the crime solving so I was wondering if you knew any dramas like that ? I’ve watched lawless lawyer and catch the ghost before ! I’ve been reading your blog for years now so thank you for the effort you put into it !

    1. Kay Avatar

      Thank you for saying that, and for reading the blog for so many years 🙂

      While I haven’t seen Crash, there are a few that come to mind when you mention good dynamics between the characters, partnership, and crime solving:

      Police Unit 38 (Squad 38) – fun crime solving with dynamic partners/ensemble and good bromance (not much romance)
      Lookout – good crime solving ensemble
      You’re All Surrounded – comedy crime solving with good ensemble
      He is Psychometric – this one leans supernatural romance with mystery/crime solving

      I’ve heard good things about Player and Leverage but haven’t seen those myself. Hopefully, you haven’t seen all of those and a few might sound appealing 🙂

        Taxi Driver with Lee Je Hoon is really good as well. And I believe some of the stories are ripped from the headlines so has some elements of truth from current events in S. Korea. I haven’t watched part 2 yet though.

    2. sovietredstar Avatar

      The Good Detective is excellent.

    I’ve added Miss Night and Day, DNA Lover, My Sweet Mobster, Hierarchy and Dreaming of a Freaking Fairytale to my list. I started Dare to Love Me and Midnight Romance in Hagwon but on the fence about if I’ll finish them. Already dropped Missing Crown Prince and Frankly Speaking.

    They Atypical Family has been a surprising and odd drama. Definitely worth watching but don’t know what about it is drawing me in. Love the main leads but enjoying the youngest cast member and her story the most. Wishing there was more of her. Fairly compelling story overall.

    1. Kay Avatar

      You have a lot to add to your list! hehe

      Miss Night and Day, DNA Lover, Frankly Speaking, Missing Crown Prince, and Dare to Love Me are on the list. Still considering Midnight Romance and My Sweet Mobster.

      Lots of dramas to choose from!

    To fill in the time waiting for new episodes of two new Kdarmas I’m watching,I watched for the second time one of the first Chinese rom/coms I ever watched “My Little Happiness”. This show is as close to rom/com perfection as it gets. I highly recommend it. If you can’t fit in another show right now then watch the last episode. This is how it should be done. The last episode should be mandatory watching for every Asian script writer.

      My Little Happiness does look super fun and is on my list 🙂 It’s great you were able to get in a nice rewatch of it 🙂

    While waiting for more episodes on other shows to be available I started watching My Sweet Mobster. I watched 2 episodes (now I have yet another show with delayed episodes) and it is very good. The male lead Um Tae Goo seems to be basing his character on Don Vito Corleone. Marlon Brando’s role in The Godfather. The deep sinister voice and facial expressions. Brando won an Oscar for his role, so we’ll see how good Um Tae Goo is.

      My Sweet Mobster in on my maybe list, so I’m keeping an eye on that one. It looks like it could be pretty fun from the trailers. Definitely let me know how it goes 🙂
