Urgh, ghosts. No wee José~ It doesn't necessarily need to have LBY, but I will always have prejudice against actors/dramas I don't know :pandapirate:

 

Helping @SilverMoonTea a little bit. Daebak Real Estate (or another English title is Sell Your Haunted House) main leads are Jung Yong Hwa (male lead from The Package) and Jang Nara (I think so far the drama that you mentioned has no Jang Nara as the female lead). But well, because it does have ghost element, I guess it's already crossed because it's included in your prohibited list.

Yep to both of them. Slice of life dramas or thrillers, crime stuff, action, agents, law, judges. I also like a sweet romance on the sidelines or ship the leads of a thriller/crime drama if it's done well. Queen of Mystery for example.

 

Hmm I would like to suggest Hello, (it's) Me but because it's a fantasy, time travel drama and already finished airing, it doesn't fit to your criteria as well. You might know the main lead from their previous role (Kim Young Kwang male lead from Plus Nine Boys and Choi Kang Hee from Queen of Mystery). It's not like both male lead time travel to the past or present, but the younger self of the female lead got transported to the present time and live together with the female lead for about 100 days. The drama tells the story about the 100 days the younger self spent in the present time and how her presence brought good change to the people around her. I quite like this one and I watched this together with @abs-oluteM

 

For law drama, the on going one that I can suggest is Law School. From the review I've heard so far it's good. But because it's too heavy for me, I don't think I'll watch it. Let me ask the busy people who somehow could fit so many dramas in their watching schedule @mademoiselle @Chocolate @abs-oluteM are you three watching this? Any comments about the drama?

 

There's also an upcoming agent with law and crime mixed in, Undercover, which is a drama based on BBC series with the same title. The main leads are a marriage couple but their marriage is in danger because of the past of the male lead. tag @SnowBlob who is the thread owner. Snow, currently everyone is selling their drama. Let's do some promotion for yours too xD

 

I'd also give another vote for you to try Deluxe Taxi / Taxi Driver. I suggest to watch it until ep 4 to see whether it's your taste or not, but everyone has different episodes limit for trying a new drama. I put my limit on the first 4 episodes of a new drama. If within those episodes it didn't pick up my interest, I'd probably not continue it or if I'm still curious about it, I'll just look for some spoilers or recap of that drama. I wonder what bewitched me into finishing manhole :pandaheadstomp:

 

I'm not putting my neck on the line for any dramas that I've mentioned above, so even if you don't watch it, it's alright with me. :smile:

Hahaha abs can keep title as queen of recommendations. I don't want a stiff neck 

 

I've also already thrown Taxi Driver out there. That's my work done 

 

 

I can kinda relate to this. I can't binge watch either! Live watch is good for sharing opinions and not getting spoilers. But it can increase my likelihood to be v. v. v. addicted to a drama, especially if it has strong elements I like. :lenny:

 

I don't think I can watch any of the old old old dramas because the times have changed and everything from production quality to the values (ie. abusive guys that still gets the girl) makes me feel rage-y :pandarage2:

 

Well, technically I found it on my own....so~

 

Exactly, that's another reason. Watching stuff that has already aired feels like you are always late to the party and you talk about stuff that was relevant to other people weeks or even months ago. And their reaction of trying to remember the stuff you just watched feels so weird. 

 

Yep, especially old dramas with all sorts of filters, flashing bright colors or bad equipment in general stuff feels so wonky. That's one thing why I haven't finished Coffee prince yet after 5 attempts of watching it completely for once.

I wished I could use those 16 hours of mine watching something else... I'm just glad that I think I've forgotten most of about the drama 

 

I actually enjoyed the first 7 to 8 ish hours, especially the episode where he is dead and sees others moan over his death was a really good episode. But around the half it got so bad and towards the end it was like an accident. Not even talking about the ending.

A L I E N S. And even when she knew her "boyfriend" was the baddie and got back, she still was close to marrying him. This church scene was the most dumb stuff I ever saw in a drama. 

I still can't decide if Manhole or SWDBS was the worst drama I ever watched. 

 

@LaLaImagine me with a big black pencil already crossing every drama out you mentioned, except Taxi Driver.

Ghosts? Time Travel? Fantasy? Finished? No. No. No. Hell no.

Choi Kang Hee does sound interesting, haven't seen her in a good while, but nah.

 

 

But I have at least two dramas now for testing, so I'm good. I don't like to have more than one drama to watch at a time.

Let me know how this goes! Look @Tofu& @stroppyse, McD is launching BTS meal! Does US have it too?

I'm more interested what the packaging will look like (i.e. expecting BTS faces all over it). Would be nice if it has collectibles like the Happy Meal.

 

Yes! It launches next month! Yay! Guess I'm going to be eating at McD's for the month of May. :jinbtsyes:

@LaLa @JenLWatched the first two episodes of Taxi Driver. Absolutely loving it so far. Totally my kind of drama. Cool Main Lead (I didn't even know it was the main lead from Signal), a team of cool people to get the bad guys and a synthesizer soundtrack that gets me grooving on my seat. It has this agent vibe, that I loved in so many dramas before ( Man X Man, Healer).

 

I don't know if I ever mentioned it, but I really, really hate violence against women. It's so hard to watch for me, so I really needed to pull myself together and endure some scenes from the first two episodes. There are two scenes from Healer that haunt me till this day because they displayed a similiar topic. It's so hard for me to watch. I have a really protective instinct and I can't relay on my chair watching stuff like this.  

I felt so sorry for her, so I was totally involved in punishing the baddies.

 

I will watch Ep 3 + 4 tomorrow and head to the drama thread afterwards and join you there. For now, I have to sleep.

It's been on pause since Episode 2 for me. I'm not sure if I'll finish it :idk: Is it terrible if I say I'm not drawn in by any of those actresses either?

Missy, you're on episode 2 (and didn't even finish from the sound of it :smug:). It's still in the introduction stage. And you're a girl, you should be drawn to the actors, not the actresses. :GrowDerp: Leave the actresses for the boys LOL LOL! There are character development for the main casts - it overall is a very well written drama that's hard to come by.

Hahaha I was scarred by Zhang Yimou's Raise the Red Lantern - where the seemingly nice kind gentle one was the evil "face of Buddha, heart of devil" concubine.

*Coughhhh* This movie is super old! I remember watching it and hating it, not because the story sucks but just how pathetic a woman's life was back in those days. Makes me appreciate I'm not born in that era. I'd trade this show with The Joy Luck Club any time though.

Yesterday while researching new dramas I read about an upcoming drama that started with the "handsome" main lead "being a 999year old nine-tailed fox". I was a bit sad, because the female lead was Hyeri of Girls Day, which was one of my first Kpop crush when I way young(er).

LMAO. You've no idea. I was devasted when this drama news was announced. @SilverMoonTea and I even decided we won't watch it only to..... succumb to Oppa's handsome face. So we will try but no guarantee we will keep on. I drop JKY's Born Again like a hot potato. Born Again's writer is like that Manhole writer, on crack or something.

Uhhh, we have some potential neck on the line. Now things get exciting, NOW I am interested. Or to use my Hans Landa impression, Uhhh, now that's a BINGO.  Okay, okay, okay, I give it a shot. I try to squeeze in one or two episodes during the weekend. If there is neck and it passes the list, I watch the first two episodes. 

Well, if you do and like it, do come in the thread to say hello~ wouldn't mind reading a guy's perspective on this slice of life drama.

oh my god ...I cannot remember the last time I read a proper book. Think it was 10 years ago. :Mimed:.

This money of yours , I cannot earn. Maybe you may have more luck asking @ktcjdrama

 

@LaLa ManHole.....I think it was okay what they tried to do initially but the drama lost its way. The lead actor has no dramas since then right?

@Dhakra Yeah forgot to tell you that Lee Je Hoon (from Signal ) is on Taxi Driver. Pop by the thread later when you're free
