THIS IS SO NOT PART OF MY PLAN! I wasn’t supposed to watch While You Were Sleeping. For one, I am not a big fan of Lee Jong-seok. Don’t brick me, I think he’s a good actor but I’m not following each and every project he makes. Second, Suzy. We all know she isn’t a talented actress so I don’t exactly look forward to her dramas. And lastly, I gave it a chance and checked out the teasers and the trailer but I wasn’t enticed by them. So I was set to pass on this one. But here I am, telling you my thoughts on While You Were Sleeping‘s premiere week. Life is indeed full of surprises.

I’ve been pretty vocal about my excitement for Manhole and IT’S FINALLY HERE! Manhole premiered yesterday and unsurprisingly, was at the last of the ratings race. I do hope it fares better as the weeks go by as I liked what I saw and I’m excited for all the hijinks. I ended up not being able to follow Reunited Worlds week by week as originally planned so my Wed-Thu kdrama slot is actually free. Would Manhole make the cut? Let’s see!

No rest for the wicked(ly talented) Namgoong Min as he’s on his second headlining drama this 2017 with Falsify, which premiered yesterday and led the race ratings-wise. Despite premiering a week later than its competitors, Falsify got double the ratings. I don’t know if it’s the Namgoong Min magic, as his previous drama Chief Kim was also a hit in Korea, or if the audience just wants to tune in to a drama about journalists fighting off corruption, or this star-studded ensemble cast. Either way, I’m curious to see if Falsify lives up to its ratings. Let’s check it out! Continue reading “Premiere Watch: Falsify (Episodes 1-2 Recap)”
Maybe it’s me overcompensating with my Wednesday and Thursday freeing up now that Suspicious Partner is over (*mourns forever*) but I can’t help it, both new shows in the Wed-Thu line-up interested me enough to garner checking them out. I posted a recap and my thoughts on the premiere of Reunited Worlds (linked) earlier and now I’m doing the same for Man Who Dies to Live. I already picked up a new show in Reunited Worlds. Will Man Who Dies to Live make the cut? Read on. Continue reading “Premiere Watch: Man Who Dies to Live (Episodes 1-2 Recap)”
Yesterday saw the premiere of Reunited Worlds, the newest drama from SBS this week, which replaced Suspicious Partner on its Wednesday-Thursday line-up. I’m here to weigh in on the first hour and judge it to determine if I’m going to continue on with it week per week or binge it near the end or completely pass on it. We’ll see.
