The Wednesday Five: Dramas I Dropped Recently

Posted February 15, 2023 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

I’m a list person. I have a list for every single thing in my life from a to-do list, a list of books that I want to read, a running shopping list, and in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing different k-entertainment lists that I’ve been keeping track of. You’ll be seeing my top 5 lists of stuff like my current celebrity crushes, my favorite k-drama female protagonists, my favorite k-drama male protagonists, my to-be-watched k-dramas, and you know, stuff like that.

This week’s Wednesday Five will feature the last five dramas that I dropped. I’m trying to drop shows early on so that I’m not wasting a lot of time on shows that just don’t interest me, whether they’re popular online or not. I used to have to watch every single episode of every show that I watched but that shit is for the birds. If I’m not invested by episode 3, I’m out…and here are the last five shows that I’ve dropped.

1. Curtain Call

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Kang Ha Neul, Ha Ji Won, Go Doo Shim

I really wanted to like this one since I’m a fan of Kang Ha Neul but I just wasn’t that interested in any of the characters (Kang Ha Neul’s included) or the story so I’m noped right out of this one after three episodes. Sorry Kang Ha Neul, I’ll try again on your next project.

2. Grid

Where to Watch: Hulu
Starring: Seo Kang Joon, Kim Ah Joong, Kim Mu Yeol

I didn’t mean to start this show. It just started playing after one episode of Revenge of Others and before I knew what was what, it was the start of episode 4 and I couldn’t tell you who was who, what was what and so I turned it off. Maybe I’ll go back to it and finish it someday but that someday isn’t going to be any time soon. But for Seo Kang Joon, I’m not counting this one out. He’s fine as hell, haha.

3. Love is for Suckers

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Choi Si Won, Lee Da Hee, Jo Soo Hyang

I was so excited about this show. I’m not even sure why but there’s something about Choi Si Won in a rom-com that really just does it for me but I got about halfway through this drama before I dropped it for good. I couldn’t stand Yu Reum because she kept saving her job at the expense of Jae Hoon. And because he was in love with her, he did whatever she needed him to do. She just kept right on using him for everything under the sun, under the guise of friendship and it annoyed the hell out of me. Even when she realizes she’s in love with him too, she was STILL doing mean shit to him and I got so fed up with her that I kicked this drama to the curb and never looked back.

I’m not at all mad that I stopped watching it.

4. Trolley

Where to Watch: Netflix
Starring: Kim Hyun Joo, Park Hee Soon, Kim Mu Yeol

After the first episode of this one, I stopped it. It was like the fifth show that was intense and had a deep story and I just wasn’t in the mood for it. I still haven’t decided if I’ll go back and finish it eventually but for the moment, I had to drop it because it was too much for me mentally.

5. Strangers Again

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Kang So Ra, Jang Seung Jo, Jo Eun Ji

This wasn’t a show that I thought I’d drop. I went into this one for both main leads but the story wasn’t what I was expecting and I wasn’t really a big fan of anything after four episodes. I quit this one mid-episode of the fifth episode and yeah, it ain’t for me.

  1. I actually dropped Her Private Life… although I was only a couple of episodes in so does it count as dropping in that space of time in a k drama? I liked it but I just didn’t care about the characters enough to watch.

    • I think that counts. I count everything I watch, whether it’s an hour or 6 hours, it all counts in my book. I dropped Her Private Life in the first episode too! Haha.
