Been a long time since i watched a drama, any recommendations?
Mirae's choice (Marry Him if You Dare) although it's still two eps in...
Tried Heirs, not bad but way too many characters in the focus to be honest and still not understanding the LMH hype but it´s definitely worth a watch, especially considering the development in episode 4
Tried Mirae, really funny and interesting with a new take on "assessing your life"
Oh but Heirs doesn't look to be boring. Since it's seemingly got character depth for most characters. It's interesting how that will turn out, I'm guessing. And I love LMH's role this time- many layers to that. It's actually Park Shin Hye's character that I'm worried about- she's a great actress (considering how she played her role in Flower Boy Next Door), but the poor girl role might be too stereotyped in this drama. I still have hopes for it though.
Definitely loving Mirae's Choice. I love the humor and the positivity.

will try to watch reply 1994 without any comparing with 1997 (one of my favorite dramas...).
So we could discuss movies in here as well, right?
I'm finally able to watch The Day He Arrives - a 2011 Korean movie, first was screened at Sundance. I believe this movie as a whole is a metaphor of life visioned by the director himself. It is not giving you the essence of the story in a simple manner, and somehow the director feels that he needed to tell messages obliquely. I was in some sort of confusion to fully understand the whole meaning of the story, but after watching it for second time, I think I could understand it, even though it might be not the most accurate interpretation of that movie.
So I feel that actually the day progresses, but the biggest question is I felt that everything happens at the Novel bar is a separated reality because everything is repetitive, and it's always going back to square one. The usual conversation, introduction, and setting.. maybe only dialogues which determine the outcome of a how the next day will roll. I also think that in some sense Seongjun can be described as a man who detaches himself whenever progress is going to be made. In a more "normal" movie, Seongjun would still maintain his relationship with the bar owner because apparently she's the love of his life. But he didn't do it. I don't think he did sleep with her merely because of lust; I think to some extent he loves her, but he's just afraid/refuse of himself whenever he wants to move forward. He's happy living inside the vicinity of his comfort zone.
Btw, if you are looking for a movie to watch, another interesting one with a romantic undertone is "My Dear Enemy"
Generally, there are like 5-6 directors whose movies are a must watch for me, Hong Sang-Soo being one of them. Another really interesting one is Kim Ki-Duk, i could really write essays about his movies
@baboysai: Been watching Mirae, really hilarious with likeable characters. I just wished that the second girl, Han Chae-Ah, would get a role as protagonist at one point.
Reply 1994 is pretty good so far. It keeps the tradition of giving you one super big mystery of the husband of our female lead, with possible candidates, and now the romance is growing. I can't choose between Trash or Chil Bong so far, they're both awesome in their own way, lol. I can relate to Trash as fellow med student, so plus points for him, muahaha.
Currently following an old series titled Vampire Prosecutor, the first and second season. Finished the first a while ago and I just love it beyond words. Yeon Jung Hoon is looking amazingly hot as a vampire and a prosecutor at the same time.
Combined with Tan's charm, I'm literally in heaven of K-drama land everyday. *sigh*

Oh, God. What did I just saw. Omo, omo.
baboysai-chaaan, (one of) your dearest favorite soldier(s) from King 2 Hearts (a.k.a Kwon Hyun Sang > http://mydramalist.com/actor/2463/kwon-hyun-sang <) appeared on Vampire Prosecutor 2!
I'm currently not compelled to watch Reply 1994 for some reason. hmm. Although I did watch the first ep.
Still avidly following Mirae's Choice and Heirs. My weekdays are almost always taken by these two shows ahahaha
Anyone wants to watch Vampire Prosecutor too? Needs someone to get crazy over it.
As for The Heirs... Surprising episode 8. I still wanna hug the puppy Kim Tan~ <33333333
Anybody watching Secret? I added it to my to-watch list today, the hype was pretty big.
ahahaha i hadn't gotten around to watching the 2nd ep of 1994.
Has anyone watched or is watching Hanzaki Naoki? I tried to watch the first episode, but I couldn't really get into it. (Perhaps if I put subtitles on, it'll be easier to watch.) Does it get better in later episodes?
It's extremely popular in Japan so I just want to know what al the hype is.
