Drama Wednesday (9): May 2017 Overview+What I’m Watching Now

Hello, Drama fans (and potential recruits to one of my favorite fandoms. #joinus). Today I have a little overview of the dramas I finished watching in May. While it is true I watched an episode here and there of other dramas, I just decided to focus on the one I did finish watching and am currently watching. (All right, I’m being lazy. In my defense, though, I’m tired. πŸ˜› ) Anywho, here is today’s Drama Wednesday:

Korean Dramas I Finished Watching

  1. Β  “Lovely Love Lie” (2017)— This was a cute musical drama. Lots of sweet characters, and some nice little romances that may or may have made me smile in a most ridiculous fashion. Was it the best thing ever? No, but I liked it and think those who like music-based dramas will especially appreciate it. It also had a pretty decent ending that actually tied up most of the plot threads. Thank you, drama. That does not always happen.
  2. Β  “Radiant Office (2017)— This drama. Oh, how I loved it. You can read my full review for it by clicking here.
  3. Β  “The Scholar Who Walks The Night” (2015)—I tried this drama way back when it was first releasing, but stopped (I do that more than I ought). I finally got around to it again, though. Yes, it’s not a perfect drama, and I did have a few dislikes for it. However, there was a lot about it that I did like and I hope to write a full length review for it soon. I will go ahead and warn that it is a dark drama while the nicer characters are fighting to defeat the evil vampire.

 

Dramas I’m Watching:Β 

The-Best-Hit-Poster2

“The Best Hit” (2017)— This drama is about a 90’s pop star who time-travels to our time. As a 90’s child, I thought this sounded fun. Plus, it has one of my favorite actors, Yoon Si-Yoon.

So far it has been enjoyable, but I’ve only seen the first two episodes.

“Sweet Stranger and Me” (2016)— I’ve not seen much talk from others about this drama, but I’m glad I decided to try it because it amuses me. It’s about a woman who, after almost a year since her mother dies, finds out that she has a stepdad… a stepdad who is younger than her. o_O Sounds kind of weird, but it really is funny and (the more you learn what is going on) is not as awkward and odd as it might sound.

Also, I especially like seeing the guy who played the villain in “The Scholar Who Walks The Night” being a lot less frightening of an individual in this drama.

MySassyGirl1

“My Sassy Girl” (2017)— Such pre-drama hype for this one. However, so far it has simply been all right for me. Funny at times, which is great, I suppose. I guess the pacing is a bit slow in spots, and in other spots I have no idea what is going on. The beginning had me all kinds of confused. πŸ˜› Still, I’m willing to give it a chance for a little longer in case it turns out to be better at some point in the near future. #please

  1. I’ve been wanting to give “Sweet Stranger” a try and “Best Hit” just recently caught my attention…
    “Sassy Girl” looks interesting- is it a period interpretation of the famous modern-day movie?

    Right now I’m in the last half of “Chicago Typewriter” and ajfo;aenpofa;oiwfbaew OH MY GOODNESS IT’S AMAZING!!!!!! Four episodes left and I can already feel myself missing the show…

    1. I’m really enjoying “The Best Hit.” It is funny, and I like the main characters.
      “Sassy Girl” is an interpretation of the film. I have not seen the film, though.
      “Sweet Stranger and Me” is a fun drama. Maybe not 100% perfect, but I am enjoying it.

      *wants to watch”Chicago Typewriter” soon*
