Drama catch-up

Jao Sao Jum Yorm – This lakorn had an excellent main pairing (Mik and Pooklook). They were mature, caring, unchanging, had lovely proper kisses, and were very cute and sweet together all the time. Right up to the final episode, they trusted each other and supported each other. I really loved that aspect of the series. The series itself though, was too long. By the end, I just wanted it to hurry up and finish. The secondary couple wasn’t bad once the evil mother-in-law had inexplicably disappeared, but every time the delusional nutjob Lookeaw was on screen, I wanted to slap her. I skipped a good chunk of scenes getting towards the end. The last scene was beautiful though.

Drama catch-up

Luead Khon Kon Jang (In Family We Trust) – This was on Netflix after it finished airing in Thailand, and I really love how Netflix is getting behind Thai lakorns now. This was pretty popular in Thailand because it stars members of the project group 9X9, but it’s also a solid drama with well known older actors as well. It’s about a family who start to distrust each other when one of the family members is killed. It’s a pretty dysfunctional family, and I blame the mother and father for raising their children the way they did. Everything that happened started because of how the mother treated her children, and the father seemingly went along with it.

End of Year

This year, I watched a similar amount of dramas as I did last year but my binging considerably dropped. As in, I mostly watched 2018 dramas as they were airing, and only watched ONE series that had aired in a previous year.

The numbers:
Korea – 26 dramas, 3 variety shows, 2 drama specials
Thailand – 24 dramas/lakorns, 3 web drama specials (plus one 2017 drama)
China – 7 dramas
Taiwan – 2 web dramas

Update

I’m travelling at the moment and behind on absolutely everything I’m watching except for Together With Me: The Next Chapter (yay for makeup sex. So much makeup sex), so I think I will do an End of Year rundown soon and just not include anything that’s airing at the moment. I’ll do another drama catch-up next month. While i’m in Bangkok though, I’ve been watching Bangkok Rak Stories: Innocence, which is only available in Thailand so I haven’t been able to watch it until now. There are 5 episodes out at the moment and it has both Ten and Max in it, and they’re both awesome, and I am really enjoying the show. I’m only watching their scenes but they are separate to the other storylines so I don’t need to watch anything else to follow along with them. I have giffed and screenshot the hell out of the first 5 episodes but I think they slow the site down too much if I put them all here. So I’ll just choose a few.

Drama catch-up

Friendzone The Series – So, I have to admit, I haven’t actually watched the whole first episode yet. I’ve watched the Singto/Nat cuts (they only had two scenes)… AND BOY WERE THEY ADORABLE! The second episode only just aired so doesn’t have subs yet, but Singto and Nat have a lot more scenes so I’ll probably watch the whole thing. I do plan on watching episode 1 with subs at some point… Obviously I have no opinion on the show at the moment but I will say that Singto (who takes up the most space in my heart) still isn’t the best actor in the world but his laugh can conquer every heart in the room. I look forward to seeing him get angry as well. Oh, and it was nice seeing Ten with his cameo as Plustor’s friend in the first episode.
