It’s a new week and it’s been a quiet week. I didn’t get anywhere on my job hunt this week since I was busy learning my sister’s job and getting familiar with what she does daily. I’m also helping her with her company Christmas party this week, so I’m sure there will be things that she needs my input on so my job hunt has been pushed back one more time. When I get back from L.A. after Christmas, I won’t have anything else for the next little while to plan for so I’m going to get serious about my job hunt then.
For real, for real. If I’m being honest though, if my sister’s company doesn’t hire me, I’m going to be annoyed because what the hell am I even doing all this for? Gah.
Hmm, I will say that between me helping my sister with all of her work, I did manage to become a k-pop fan for real. I used to only listen to BTS but I’ve discovered Seventeen and their music makes me happy. So much so that I’ve got two biases and I purchased their fandom membership (I have three fandom memberships right now…yikes.), I’ve added collecting their photocards to my 2023 goals (just my biases though because there are 13 members in this group) and I’ve added my favorite songs to my weekly streaminig lists so I’m listening to a lot of Indigo (AMAZING ALBUM!), The Astronaut by Jin, Jack in the Box by J Hope, and loads of Seventeen and TXT. I am in k-pop heaven right now.
Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…because it was a lot. I didn’t realize that I’m juggling so many different dramas right now. Some dramas are on their way out though so my watch list should ease up soon. On with the show though…
What I Watched
May I Help You?: We’re in our dating era, guys! Tae Hee and Dong Joo are official and just as things are starting to heat up for them as a couple, the shit hits the fan. Like, everything. I’m really glad that this drama is character driven because I really enjoy both Tae Hee and Dong Joo’s characters.
They’re good people, trying their best each and every day and I just adore them so much. Finding out that Tae Hee’s younger brother was actually the first ghost that Dong Joo saw, reeling from the guilt she’s been carrying around all these years and seeing that it’s part of the same guilt that Tae Hee has been carrying as well. Gah, so much drama and I’m here for it all. I’m curious about how this will all come together to wrap up drama. Sigh, this has been such a great drama.
Behind Every Star: I’m really only watching this show for Jane. There are only a few weeks left of this show and I wonder if I’ll tune in until the very end. Right now, I don’t think so but we’ll see but damn I really hope Jane wins her man back. She better not end up with the guy that bought the company. Also, it was great to see Daniel Henney in this weeks episodes. He’s so damn handsome.
Revenge of Others: This show gives me anxiety. Every damn episode there is something happening that has my heart racing cause I just know that these damn high school kids are going to get caught and everything is going to go up in smoke. This week wasn’t any different. Still, I can’t stop watching and I can’t stop hoping that everything comes together and resolves itself nice and tidy.
The First Responders: I’m still a big fan of this show and this week’s episodes only added to my love for these characters, the work that they do, and just everything. Love this one!
Reborn Rich: The last couple of weeks, I’ve been a bit bored with all of the business shit going on with Reborn Rich but not anymore. I’m gone and completely hooked. I think the romance between the two main leads is a weird one for sure because how the hell do they start dating and then she shows up at his work the way that she did? SMH. Get it together girl. I’m glad that I stuck with this one because things are heating up and I’m stoked to see where we go from here.
Summer Strike: I think this one is a keeper. Last week I didn’t think that I’d keep on with this one but the secondary characters have stood out a lot for me and I’m really liking them and it is through them that I’ve come to love the main leads. That’s never happened before. But, I’m good and hooked now and I’m going to need only good things for Bom now. I freaking demand it. Sigh.
Extraordinary You: I only managed to watch two episode of this one this week and though I’ve warmed up a little bit, the heroine still drives me a little crazy. I’m interested enough that I’m not going to drop this but it’s not my favorite, not by a long shotot. We’ll see how this all turns out though.
Alchemy of Souls 2: IT’S HERE! IT’S FINALY HERE! Therese and I have been waiting for the release of this season to drop for what seems like forever and the first two episodes were just as amazing as we hoped they’d be. I’m SO excited to see where this new season takes us and I’m itching for more Naksu and Jang Uk. There’s no time to fuck around and I’m so here for the changes from the last season. AHHHHHHH, SO EXCITED!!
The Forbidden Marriage: This show premiered this week and the first two episodes were a lot of fun. There was enough of everything that I like in a drama to satisfy me and leave me wanting more. I can already tell that it’s going to be a great ride and I’m looking forward to more.
Unlock the Boss: Another new premiere this week and another show that I’m excited about. The first two episodes were good ones so I’m looking forward to where this one goes as well. December has been a good drama month so far, let’s see if that keeps up but this one is definitely a keeper.
