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.
February was a short month and I didn’t watch a whole lot of dramas. I think there was a week where I didn’t watch anything outside of Seventeen in the Soop. Now that the shows that I was excited to start have begun, I’m hopeful that my March drama watching will be pick up. So let’s start this recap, shall we?
Dramas Reviewed: 6 | Boyfriend of the Month:
Favorite Drama: Love to Hate You | Least Favorite Drama: Strangers Again
What I Completed
Seventeen in the Soop 1
Alice in Borderland
The Interests of Love
Seventeen in the Soop 2
Of all the shows that I watched in February, my favorite watches weren’t even dramas but both seasons of Seventeen in the Soop. They were shows for resting and healing from hectic schedules and seeing Seventeen enjoy themselves and relax was very healing for me as well. I enjoyed those shows so much that I searched out other kinds of shows that aren’t just dramas and am watching a traveling show with Lee Je Hoon and Ryu Jun Yeol.
What I Dropped
These two shows are my first dropped shows of the year. I wasn’t in the mood for Trolley and am still unsure if I’ll go back to it but I didn’t want to finish Strangers Again and that bummed me out since I was really looking forward to that acting pair together. Oh well.
What I’m Still Watching
Our Blooming Youth
The Heavenly Idol
Taxi Driver 2

Actors that Stood Out
Boo Seungkwan: I am super soft for Seungkwan from Seventeen. I adore his personality, I love how funny he is, and just everything about him. He was such a delightful part of watching Seventeen in the Soop. He made me laugh so much and with every passing episode, I loved him more and more.
Yoon Jeonghan: Jeonghan is a lot funnier than I thought he’d be. I thought that he would be a more serious and quiet but he’s not at all what I thought. That scene in Seventeen in the Soop when Mingyu is rowing him in the boat is hands down, my favorite part of the entire first season. I laughed so much and Jeonghan is me. I love him. He was a bright highlight for me in February.
Kim Ji Hoon: I enjoyed Kim Ji Hoon as Denver in Money Heist so seeing him play a completely different character in Love to Hate You was such a treat. His character was one of my favorite characters of the month. Love, love, love him.
