It came down to three shows: Who Are You, Master’s Sun, and Two Weeks.
I’ve decided to wait on Who Are You because, while I find its premise intriguing and quite like the lead actress, So Yi-hyun, I’m not familiar with the PD or writer. And I’ve learned, it’s the production team that really determines how good a story is going to be. So I’m going to play it safe and let others take point. (I’ve heard positive things about the first episodes, so I’m waiting with optimism.)
Which left Master’s Sun and Two Weeks — both created by writers I’ve enjoyed in the past. But, “there can be only one,” and my favorite Hong-sister’s drama is Best Love. Which is an unpopular opinion and I don’t want to be in the position of live-watching a drama that I’m enjoying more than anyone else. (I find that can be the worst experience. Anyone else find that? It’s not fun being part of group that’s disliking something you’re enjoying.)
Therefore… Two Weeks is the winner! Next week I’ll be joining Lee Jun-ki as he races off to clear his name and save his daughter. Should be fun! (Though — this I swear — if it starts to sour on me, I’m dropping it. A vow has been made!)
In other news: I’m still in the ruthless (yet so, so sexy) grip of Heartless City. Close enough to the end to be scared for… well… pretty much everyone. (Would it totally ruin the drama if all my favorite characters drove off into the sunset together — maybe opened a hotel on JeJu Island or something? Fun in the sun, no knives required. Except for the kitchen, of course. They could hire Pasta‘s Italian team! Jin-sook would love it!)
Finally, I did some blog-housekeeping. Redid my “Categories” to better reflect the way I post (I know; you’re all relieved), and added an “Awaiting Review” list to the sidebar to better track what reviews are coming down the pike. Which… there’s a lot of dramas need reviewing! The good news? At least I have future post ideas lined up.
And that’s my week!
