  1. Ah! I refuse to watch dramas while they are airing, too mich suspence. Those all look pretty good though, looking forward to watch them :)

  2. Thanks for the “Heads-up” on the dramas. I try to mix up some of the oldies with the new ones, and this month has two dramas with two of the “child actors-now adults”, that I am following. I am cheering them on!

  3. Park Seo Joon, Ji Chang Wook… the choice is hard! Have you started watching any of these? I am watching Typewriter at the moment, and it sure was a good suggestion!

    • Yes and I definitely recommend Master of the Mask! I am trying to finish K2 before starting Chang Wook’s new drama! and I can’t wait for Park Seo Joon’s drama too! I love the lead actress, she was soo cool in Descendents of the sun!

    • Welcome ^.^ Im super excited for that one as well! The only alien related drama was “my love from the stars” and it was a romantic comedy so yeah !
