The Monthly Recap posts are a way for me to take a look back and reflect on my previous month in books, movies, and Korean dramas. From what I read, what I watched, what I got, and the books, shows, and movies that I need to get to. I always lose track of what I have, what I need to read, what I want to watch and I need these posts to keep me honest with my damn self because I be forgetting shit.
I came home from a trip to Colorado for my nephew’s birthday on September 1st. I was wrapping up my time with my family and though it was a pretty crazy week away from work, I still had a really good time seeing and catching up with the family.
Dramas DNF’d: 1 | K-Drama Boyfriend of the Month: Hong Du Sik
Favorite Drama: Squid Games | Least Favorite Drama: Uncontrollaby Fond
Ongoing Dramas I Watched
September was the month that I started watching a lot of new K-dramas. I’ve never watched so many k-dramas at one time. I thought I’d be a lot more confused but I’m not having any trouble at all keeping stories and characters straight from each drama so needless to say, I’m enjoying each drama that I’m watching. My favorite of the bunch is probably Lovers of the Red Sky, followed closely by Hometown Cha Cha, but Yumi’s Cells ain’t no slouch either. There’s a lot of good stuff here and I’m sad that some of them will be ending in the next couple of weeks.
Dramas I Completed
Of the dramas that I did finish, my favorite leans just a smidge toward Squid Games since I watched that so quickly because I couldn’t stop. It’s not #1 in every single country that streams Netflix for nothing. That show was good and though there were things that I rolled my eyes at, I still really enjoyed it. Same with D.P. I ended up liking that show a lot more than I thought I would. The stories, the characters, all of them made my heart hurt and I always love seeing Jung Hae In acting in anything. I love that guy!
Dramas I DNF’d
I thought that I was in the mood for something suspenseful so I loaded this bad boy right up but about two episodes in, I turned it off. I’m not sure what my issue was but as it turns out, I wasn’t in the mood to slog through something as deep and dark as this show turned out to be so for now, I’m DNF-ing it.
What Movies I Watched
Twenty | 5 out of 5
I saw that Kim Woobin and Kang Haneul was in this one so I had to watch it. I’m SO glad that I did because I laughed my ass off from beginning to end. I’m not sure which friend ended up being my favorite of the trio because I loved them all. This movie is my Midnight Runners from last year. Five stars all the way, it was such an enjoyable movie.
