Remember to stay up to date with the world, listen to those facing atrocities and help spread awareness/donate where you’re able to.
I have a habit of starting dramas and not finishing them – I’m pretty sure I’m in the middle of at least 5… (I think it’s more but I don’t want to look and cause myself pain 😅) I’ve done a little list of the ones I want to complete by the end of this month.
Eun Dan Oh (Kim Hye Yoon) is a student at a prestigious high school for the rich. One day she starts to experience short term memory loss and visions of the future. Dan Oh soon discovers that she is actually a character in a manhwa, but to her dismay and chagrin she learns that she’s only a side character, and one that doesn’t have long to live due to her heart condition.
Now that Dan Oh is aware of her fate she embarks on having her own love story and changing the path the writer is choosing. In her search she meets a character with no name (Rowoon) who she names Haru.
Together they work towards having the future they want play out in a world written by someone else.
I’ve watched 9 episodes so far and I’m really enjoying it. The atmosphere and editing of the episodes elevates a great plot even further. The acting is wonderful and the main reason I haven’t been watching it is because I don’t want to be disappointed or see my leads in pain (which is going to happen I know it!).
Gene (Up) is a writer with a pushy publisher that wants him to continue writing BL after the success of his first novel. A success so big that it’s being adapted into a tv series. Despite not caring about the drama at all, Gene is forced to attend the auditions and becomes entangled with the lead actor Nubsib (Kao).
Unknowingly, Nubsib’s forward and charming personality becomes the inspiration for a character in Gene’s new novel.
I’ve only watched a couple of episodes of Lovely Writer and I’m really enjoying it. So far it’s been funny, heartwarming and has a charming quality to it. I think it’s also very interesting to see a BL drama exploring and calling out problematic tropes and treatment of actors by staff and fans. I’m really excited to finish this!
100 DAYS MY PRINCE
Lee Yul (Do Kyung Soo) is a Crown Prince who has never known happiness since his father become King after a coup. He is hard to handle and causes distress and annoyance to the palace nobles. The country is suffering a bad draught, which is being blamed on his complete lack of intimacy with the Princess Royal (Han So Hee). To combat this he brings in a law that all citizens must wed by the age of 28.
Meanwhile, Hong Shim (Nam Ji Hyun) is an independent spinster who has no intention of marrying. Her path crosses with an injured Yul, who is suffering from amnesia. Due to his own law, he finds himself proposing to Hong Shim so that she doesn’t have to face the punishment.
However, Yul’s recovery may destroy their budding romance.
I have only watched episode one and really want to watch more! I really love Kyungsoo and I’ve seen so many behind the scenes clips and it looks so good. In the first episode Yul and Hong Shim don’t meet as adults and I can’t wait to see that happen as they has such different and distinct personalities already.
What dramas are you planning on finishing this month? Or what do you plan on watching?
Thanks for reading!
I hope that you’re having a lovely day and staying safe ♥
