Dramas I’m watching:
I Hear Your Voice: winning OTP, great central conflict, thumps up.
Autumn in My Heart, Thai edition: winning OTP, great mood pacifier, thumps up.
Starman: is this like, Superman? I dunno. but adorable kids!
Dramas I’ve dropped:
Monstar: 7 was the last ep I enjoyed, 9 was the last I watched, OTP is a major fail for me, plot is dragging its feet, ensemble cast lacks chemistry as a group. Dream High retains its crown.
Heartless City: who diluted my damn coffee with vanilla cream? such was my feelings about this cup of noir coffee. I don’t remember which ep I last watched, something before double digits. They veer back to conventional Kdramaland too often for my liking. Talked too much, then talked too much of damn feelings. Feelings are for the weak! (Say I, queen of sappiness). Could we have traded them for smart mindgames instead? JKH is cool when he’s being badass, but tends to overact the anguish bit (see above about overdosed feelings). Would have liked something more nuanced, more efficient.
Dramas I’m rewatching:
Dalja’s Spring: I forgot what a riot this drama was. The things Dalja gets herself into are so funny. Also forgot Kim Jaewook was in this one.
Pillow Book: I was translating and discovered the next section is way long. So don’t check for updates this week.
