Watching

  1. Reply 1988 (2015-16, tvN)
  2. Let’s Eat 2 (2015, tvN)
  3. Drinking Solo (2016, tvN)

Completed

Featuring my (in)consistent and incredibly (un)scientific ratings / thoughts. I usually stay away from numerical rating scales because they get inconsistent over time and I always end up changing them…

Ordered by year I finished watching, not started…which sometimes means they’re really out-of-place for the order I considered them or started watching them…

  3. School 2013 (2013, KBS) – solid, bromance for the ages
  4. Reply 1994 (2013, tvN) – the charms of the first go around but a bit long-winded

2014

  1. Nine (2013, tvN) – watch this, time traveling done right, engaging plot, twists and turns without being too extra

2015

Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 8.55.16 AM.png

  1. Oh My Ghostess (2015, tvN) – watch this, cast excellent, and Park Bo-young is love

2016

didn’t finish a drama this year

2017

  1. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (2016-17, MBC) – watch this, the cutest foibles and travails of romance overcome a bit of a slow start
  2. You’re All Surrounded (2014, SBS) – I started watching this 3 years ago and didn’t finish it until now if that tells you anything
  3. Descendants of the Sun (2016, KBS) – solid, beautiful, chemistry for days, characters are great, but writing was…???

DNF

Didn’t finish… but how far’d I get? Some of these that I nearly finished I may go back and put out of their misery in partial-watch limbo…others… please no…
