I’ve been the pickiest soul with my kdramas in 2017 thus far, so here’s hoping my luck starts to change this May!
Yippee! Finally, a drama or two to cheer about – way overdue if you ask me!
Drama dreams do come true
Ji Chang Wook is back! In the most unexpected way imaginable, which makes me excited about a new show for the first time in ages. And that’s saying something.
Suspicious Partner – May 10
This time around it’s a romcom for our one and only Healer and I’m really feeling him in this.
Ji Chang Wook always boasted a comic side that we’ve seen strains of in a few of his past dramas.
Now he gets the chance to make us laugh as much as he makes us swoon. That’s a win-win in my book.
Nam Ji Hyun co-stars in this judicial themed drama. I’ve seen enough of her in melos like Angel Eyes and more recently in romcoms like Shopaholic Louie to know she has the chops to make this a worthwhile watch.
Ruler – Master of the Mask – May 10
I always go into default ecstatic mode whenever I see a sageuk with the leading male role played by an actor I consistently root for, like Yoo Seung-Ho.
As for Kim So-Hyun I’m majorly iffy about her and I wish YSH had a much more mature co-star. I don’t plan on letting this dull my enthusiasm – at least I hope not!
Both ready-to-launch dramas will air for 20 episodes so that’s bound to fill up my time.
They each have their own flavor: one’s more upbeat and bubblegum-glossy, while the other is sleekly melo with all the trappings of a gripping policital period piece.
The ongoing weeks promise to be intense! Can’t wait? Neither can I!
May is going to fly by pretty fast and before you know it, we’ll be just in time to catch two more amazing sageuks before May ends.
My Sassy Girl and Seven Day Queen first air on May 29 and May 31 respectively – so we technically won’t be watching them in May but all through June/July.
Both are starring two of my topmost heroines in kdrama: Oh Yeon Seo and Park Min Young. So I’m understandably over the moon!
My Sassy Girl with Oh Yeon Seo & Joo Won.
Seven Day Queen with Park Min Young, Yeon Woo-Jin & Lee Dong-Gun.
My Sassy Girl and Seven Day Queen (Queen for Seven Days) promise intrigue and romance mixed in with the usual politics, rivalry and majestic mayhem. Yes please!!
