The Monthly Recap posts are a way for me to take a look back and reflect on my previous month in Korean dramas. I always lose track of what I want to watch and I need these posts to keep me honest with my damn self because I be forgetting shit. So let’s start this recap, shall we?
I can’t believe that we’re already entering into the last two months of the year and that a month has passed since my last Monthly Recap. Time is moving way too fast and I’m not sure I’m ready for the new year. I have loads of plans and shit to do but am I ready to tackle all of it? Not really. The show must go on though so I’ll be moving forward with this post, at the very least.
October was a lot busier than I thought it would, especially with how busy September was. I traveled to Utah and then on to California for different things. I had a lot of fun but was more than ready for a break from the hustle and bustle that is my family life. I did manage to get some k-drama watching in so that’s a good thing. Let’s take a look back on what I watched, what worked, and what didn’t work for me. Shall we?
Dramas Reviewed: 4 | Boyfriend of the Month: Choi Do Il from Little Women
Favorite Drama: Little Women | Least Favorite Drama: The Cursed
Dramas I Completed
Little Women | 4 out of 5
Young Actor’s Retreat | 5 out of 5
The Law Cafe | 4 out of 5
This was a solid month in my k-drama watching. Out of the three shows that I completed, my favorite of the bunch was definitely Little Women. My least favorite is the one drama that I couldn’t even finish.
Dramas I Dropped
The Cursed | 1.5 out of 5
Therese and I tried to get into this show but it was too confusing, the story was just meh and it was hard to connect with the characters so we got to episode 5 and called it quits. I was surprised that we only got to episode 5 because I thought we were watching for days and were a lot farther into the show but nope…it was that boring for the both of us. Oh well.
Dramas I’m Still Watching
Love in Contract
Dramas I Reviewed
The Sound of Magic | 3.5 out of 5
My Liberation Notes | 4.5 out of 5
Military Prosecutor Doberman | 3.5 out of 5
Our Blues | 4.5 out of 5
Actors that Stood Out
Jung Eun Ji in Blind
I’m really enjoying this drama and I’m sad that it’s wrapping up next week BUT as much as I’m enjoying the main three leads, I’m enjoying Jung Eun Ji’s character the most. She’s always looking on the bright side of things and always doing her best to do what’s right. I like her acting so I’m looking forward to checking her out in whatever else she’s got going on.
Kwak Dong Yeon from Gaus Electronics
I love me some Kwak Dong Yeon but I especially love him in this drama. I didn’t think that I could love one of his characters more than I loved Jerry from Big Mouth but I hella love Lee Sang Sik. I love how unlucky he is and how optimistic he is even when things are stacked against him. He treats everyday as a day to do better than yesterday and I just love him sincerity so he stayed with me throughout the month.
Go Kyung Pyo in Love in Contract
I’ve seen Go Kyung Pyo in a lot of different things and I’ve enjoyed him in everything he’s been in but it wasn’t until this show and this character that I’ve really paid attention to him. I really like him as Jung Ji Ho and seeing him bring this character to life every week has been a delight. I’m buying everything he’s selling and seeing his character learn to fall in love and be in love has been great. He’s been great.
