Hello there! Sorry for the extended absence. I’ve switched to watching mostly cdramas lately. The few kdramas that I started left me slightly underwhelmed despite its charming male leads. I will be back (hopefully before July wraps up) to share a few of my thoughts on the following shows:
kdramas: Man to Man, Secret Romance, Suspicious Partners
cdramas: Ode to Joy 2, Rush to the Dead of Summer
Holy Moly! Has Cdrama stepped up its game or what? Lately I’ve been watching my share of contemporary cdramas. And I must say the producers from Mainland China has been churning out its share of stay-worthy shows as good as its counterparts from the Land of the Morning Calm.
Unless you are a complete newbie to K-dramas, you’re likely to have suffered the heartrending pain of the second lead syndrome (SLS). Episode after episode, we hang in there whispering inside our head; “Maybe this one is different. Maybe there’s a twist here somewhere.”
You are in denial. You are crying inside. You are on the brink of dropping the show. You finally give up and accept the inevitable. Your ship’s not gonna sail.
I was nonchalant about this drama when it first aired even when there was so much hype around it. My mom was watching it over the summer of 2016 and she was hooked. I finally picked it up over the winter break when I had plenty of free time to kill.
A slice of life drama about five women of different backgrounds and age group but ultimately it is about the friendships, girl-power and sorority which won me over.
