Recent (2022) dramas that I would recommend:

Let Me Be Your Knight - a drama about a kpop group that had me buying their CD even

My Liberation Notes - a slice of life drama that kept me more enthralled than I would have thought


Dramas of all time on my list:

Happiness - a zombie drama that is really more a character study about people under stress, plus a main couple who provide a satisfying friends to lovers story

Good Detective - a cop drama, an odd couple buddy drama, all with interesting, complex characters

Racket Boys - a coming to age drama about kids who play badminton that is far more compelling than it should be

Mystic Pop Up Bar - a fantasy set in the modern world where souls are helped to resolve their grudges

Healer - forever and ever on my list of faves to watch, with one of the most memorable OTP's in Healer and Young Shin, plus Ajumma Hacker!

Actually, this has a special place in my heart as well. I loved the friendship between the children, but also the friendship amongst the parents.


Mine as well for exactly the same reasons.

  • Beyond Evil


Dramas in the past year



  • Love like the Galaxy

  • The Devil Judge
  • DP
  • Why Her (but only the first half 😆)
  • Lovers of the Red Sky
  • Grid

(Older) Dramas that I didn't think I would like but was surprised

  • Mr Sunshine (and Kim Min-jung is now redeemed lol)
  • Sky Castle
  • My Mister
  • Misaeng
  • Prison Playbook

I keep seeing good reviews for Reply 1988. But it sounds like a slice of life which is not my cup of tea. By any chance, is there any mystery or perhaps fighting between the characters? 😅

Many people much preferred R1988. For me personally, I like R1997 better. Tried a couple times watching R1988, just cannot get into it and give up. I don’t know why.

@Chocolate Very nice recommendations . Ling Bu Yi for the win ahahaha

@ktcjdrama I actually never even finished one Reply series although I started them all. Just couldn't somehow.  But I love the HP series and Prison Playbook . 


This year ( I will just limit it to 2022 or my list will be unending) I feel these were my top completed dramas:

1. My Liberation Notes ( Mr Gu & Yeong Mi Jeong's struggles & romance tugged at my heartstrings)

2. Through The Darkness ( fantastic procedural & based on true story + Kim Nam Gil)

3. Bloody Heart ( this is how you do a good historical, Lee Joon , Jang Hyuk , Kang Hanna )

4. Extraordinary Attorney Woo ( eye-opening where ASD is concern + my baby Kang Tae Oh)

5. Forecasting Love & Weather ( surprisingly good + my favorite Park Min Young role to date)

6. 2521 (in spite of the ending - this was so much nostalgia)

7. Our Beloved Summer ( realistic romance - I include this since most episodes aired in 2022)



1.  The Autumn Ballad (first time watching Jeremy Tsui  :hearties: )
2. Reset (I wish kdramas take a leaf from this show on how to do a good time travel!)
2. Ordinary Greatness ( wonderful slice of police life that reminded me off the kdrama, Live)

( I am still watching LLTG ...so I didn't put this in ...ahahah)


A couple of guilty pleasure shows I think that is good for an easy watch - Business Proposal and Sh**ting Stars.
