Milestones and Mayhem
1. Saimdang Light’s Diary
My 2017 watchlist started on a high with a brand new discovery that changed my kdrama horizon!

Guess who’s back! It’s only Jo Jung Seok, one of the hottest actors to grace our kdrama universe. He can be tough, he can be cool, he can be funny. He’ll get the chance to be all three in Two Cops, airing November 27!

Hospital Ship takes me right back to when I first watched kdramas. The inexplicable feeling of nostalgia, of serenity leading you straight home, that is what this wonderful drama gives so generously.

What a blast! Criminal Minds started off on the right side of fast-paced, gritty and turbulent. Whew.
The chaos and adrenalin both kick in from the first minute and nothing slows down until the very end. Who else is out of breath?!

Queen for Seven Days Episode 1
Holy Kimchi!! I wasn’t expecting this much action, humor and spine-quaking tension at first bite.
Keep this up, drama and you could well be my pick of the bunch in this season of sageuks!

Now that was an action-packed couple of hours! Strangely satisfying yet keeps you wanting more. Kdrama just found its new krack!
Sageuk done right
Ruler: Master of the Mask is possibly the kind of period drama I’ve been waiting for since the beginning of the year. Meaty, vibrant and tied in nice little knots, it has you eager to unravel as many twists as you can, as fast as you can!

Gu Hye Sun like I’ve never seen her before: I love it!
And I love this drama! You’re Too Much is just two episodes in, yet I can tell it’s right up my alley.
From the very first scene I felt swept in by the glitter and the glam. It’s also earthy and raw in places, with emotion and darkness. The storyline already has enough twists to get you dizzy. Don’t think, just fall in!
This might be a weekend “family” drama that’s all set up to reach 50 episodes, but the stakes are already steep.

Guns. Fists. Tears and blood. Heroism, conviction and of course love…
Episode 16 of The K2 gave a smash finish to an awesome drama.
Ji Chang Wook again, plays the perfect lead that takes it all the way up. An action hero worth his weight in muscles, and my what big ones he’s got!
All the better to take down the bad guys, save the girl and win the day.
His only worry as an actor, will be how to yet again top a stellar performance in his next drama. No pressure, Wookie. No pressure.

Now that we’re nearing the end of year 2016 it’s certainly not too much to expect even more ‘zing’ in our k-drama offerings.
Can November manage to bring it even harder than the preceding months have done? Simply put: you betcha!
