She’s alive! And blogging!

Yes, it’s amazing. I’ve popped up again, after more than three years during which I have not once gotten the urge to blog. Which may have something to do with the fact that these days I watch maybe a couple of k-dramas a year. (By the way, any recommendations for me, from 2017?)

Then a few days ago I was sorting through my stuff when I came across¬†Thank You (MBC, 2007)¬†and decided to give the show a re-watch. Big mistake. Down the rabbit hole I went, marathoning over a few days when I should be doing other things, having a pleasurable weepfest. Yes, I cried. But I also rolled my eyes and LOL-ed a lot. Then I read my TY review for Thundie’s Prattle and rolled my eyes some more – gosh I was besotted by the show! And dang, did I need some fierce editing, lol! To be fair to myself, that was my very first k-drama review. But I’m a bit embarrassed now by how many free passes I handed the show. I must have been very much in love with Jang Hyuk!

I’ve been in a bit of a drama slump lately. So it was terrific that at one stage there were not one, not two, but THREE current dramas I was eager to watch. Yes, folks, the drama gods are smiling kindly upon our Wed-Thurs slot!

If you know me, you might try to guess which one I like the most. And you would probably be wrong. Because I was totally wrong in my own predictions! You might expect me, famously grumpy and unimpressed by fluff, to be most on board with the serious fare, right? At least, that’s what I expected. So wrong!

Of the three, when they started airing concurrently a couple of weeks ago, the first one I would rush to watch would be… Fated to Love You (MBC). The fluffy, derivative one. I know right! So unexpected. It’s Okay, It’s Love (SBS) is coming in a close second for me. Joseon Gunman (KBS) is falling behind. What? How did that happen?
