    What Are We Watching - WAWW

    What dramas have we recently watched/ are currently watching - We share our impressions of these dramas.

    Currently Watching:


    Love Is For Suckers : Sangeetha has mixed feelings after watching 5 episodes into this romcom with best friends to lovers trope starring Choi Si Won and Lee Da Hee

    Completed Dramas


    Extraordinary Attorney Woo : The drama traces the journey of Attorney Woo Young Woo, a young lady who is autistic and getting started at one of the prestigious law firms in the country. Our team has mixed feelings about this drama but recommends it as a one time watch; as it is rare to see autistic female representation in TV Series and it has its heart-warming moments. Minal also recommends the American series on Prime - As We See It where the 3 leads are played by actors who are autistic in real life.
    If You Wish Upon Me: Ji Chang Wook stars in this drama as a gangster who comes to do his community service in a Hospice and begins to rebuild his life. Good performance by JCW, but the drama left Sangeetha and Minal with mixed feelings - one time watch recommended if you are a JCW fan.
    DP: Minal highly recommends this 2021 drama that stars Jung Hae In and Koo Kyo Hwan. One of the best military dramas - it's worth all the hype, accolades and awards it got. 
    Black Dog : A drama that explores the trials and tribulations of teachers - temporary and permanent, within the Korean education system with 2 female protagonists played by Ra MiRan and Seo HyunJin. An underrated gem that Poonam and Minal highly recommend.
    Through The Darkness : The drama that traces the journey of how the criminal profiling unit was established in South Korea. It is based on true events and co-written by SK’s first criminal profiler. Excellent crime thriller - highly recommended by Poonam and Minal.
    The Law Cafe : Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young star in this romcom with legal backdrop. A very mature and realistic romance between two people in their mid-30s dealing with legal cases with the right messaging. Minal loved it and highly recommends it for the relationship arc and fire chemistry between the leads.
    Little Women : The American classic adapted to modern day Korea with dark undertones and an underlying social commentary. The team had polar opposite views on this one - so listen and decide whether this drama is for you or not. Minal loved it, but Sangeetha and Poonam would not recommend this drama to anyone.

    We did an experiment in this episode, based on Minal's friend Abi’s suggestion we got her and Chaitra to watch Kdramas for the first time and to come as guests on our episode to share their viewing experience. A millennial and a teenager from two different countries and cultures get together to make this discussion even more interesting.  Tune in to the episode as they share their experiences on the dramas they watched, the cultural similarities/differences they noticed, what kept them hooked, what did they not like, we also had an interesting discussion around Kdrama remakes/dubbed versions. Give it a listen!

    Kdramas mentioned: Crash Landing on You, Hot Stove League, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, Hometown Cha Cha Cha, Touch Your Heart,Vincenzo, What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, Goblin, Beautiful Gong Shim, My Love from Another Star, Our Beloved Summer,Legend of the Blue Sea,Tale of the Nine-Tailed, Wild Romance, Kingdom, Stranger, StartUp, Hotel Del Luna

    Other Movies/TV Shows mentioned: Deutschland 83, The Bridge, MoneyBall, Only Fools and Horses, Brooklyn 99, Friends, Parasite, Downtown Abbey, Sound of Music, Singing in the Rain, The Crown

    Actors/Actresses Mentioned : Kim Soo Hyun, Seo Ye Ji, Oh Jung Se, Nam Goong Min, Park Eun Bin

    During the episode in many instances, Chaitra calls Minal ‘Mavshi’ which means mother’s sister in Marathi language.

    What Are We Watching - WAWW

    What dramas have we recently watched/ are currently watching - We share our impressions of these dramas.

    Currently Watching:

    Sangeetha's Picks:


    Eve : Seo YeJi’s comeback drama. It's a revenge drama with Seo YeJi playing the protagonist who is out for revenge from the chaebol family. 
    Why Her: Legal drama which is a women centric drama with Seo Hyun Jin playing the lead protagonist. Started it for her and has liked it so far.
    Kiss Sixth Sense: Based on the webtoon which both Sangeetha and Minal have read. Enjoying it and the lead actor Yoon Kye Sang is a favourite of both Minal and Sangeetha.
    Bloody Heart: Watched 6 episodes purely for Jang Hyuk, good so far.

    Minal’s Pick:


    Black Dog : Another Seo Hyun Jin drama that revolves around school teachers and the politics amongst them. On hold currently, but will definitely pick it up again for the different plot.

    Completed Dramas


    Secret Royal Inspector Joy : Poonam recommends this primarily for a progressive female protagonist played by Kim Hye Yoon set in the Joseon era. She meets the male lead TaecYeon who is a Secret Royal Agent and together they work to solve cases.
    Sky Castle : Minal loved this drama . It is a tragicomedy, a satirical take on the obsession of upper-class parents in South Korea to get their kids in the topmost universities at the cost of destroying others' lives. Excellent acting by a great ensemble cast and writing/direction.
    Sound of Magic: Poonam and Sangeetha loved this musical drama while Minal had mixed reviews. The drama is about a 30 year old magician and 2 struggling  teenagers who try to chart a path of their own against societal norms. 6 episodes only.
    Again My Life : Lee Joon Gi is back as a prosecutor action hero with a fantasy element where he gets to redo his life. Minal and Poonam loved it. Recommended watch, especially if you are a Lee Joon Gi fan.
    Soundtrack : Friends to lovers trope starring Park Hyung Sik and Han So Hee. 4 episodes - short drama. Sangeetha recommends it.
    Love All Play : A surprise package which was the right blend of romance, sports, friendships with an emotional storyline. The supporting cast is good and Chae Jong Hyeop and Park Ju Hyun’s lead pair chemistry is top notch. Whilst it is not perfect, Minal recommends it for the best boyfriend ever written and portrayed to perfection by Chae Jong Hyeop in KDramaland.

    What dramas have we recently watched/ are currently watching - We share our impressions of these dramas.

    Currently Watching

    2022 Dramas:


    Love All Play : Romcom + sports backdrop. Good chemistry between the main leads. 4 episodes have kept Minal hooked.
    Again My Life : Lee Joon Gi is back as a prosecutor action hero with a fantasy element where he gets to redo his life. S & M have watched 2 episodes and liked what they saw.
    Tomorrow: A team of 3 Grim Reapers who are out to save those who are on the verge of committing suicide - S is watching Kim Hee Sun for the first time in a drama and finds her mind-blowing. 
    Pachinko : Entire team has watched 2 episodes and were quite underwhelmed with what they saw. 
    Ghost Doctor: A sitcom where the coma ghost of a genius doctor (Rain) interacts with newbie doctor (Kim Bum). Great camaraderie but the story is stagnant from ep 8-10 . P is stuck at this stage. 

    On Hold: 

    Our Blues & My Liberation Notes : Currently we are not in the mood for melancholia, M & S have kept these two dramas on hold after seeing the first 2 episodes. 

    Older Dramas:


    My Girl : 2005 drama. Romcom - Recommended for Lee Dong Wook fans. Tip by our team -  skip the sub plots and watch only the main lead story.
    Producers: A 2015 drama by Park Ji Eun (Writer of CLOY, MLFAS and TLOTBS). Set in KBS channel, it's the story of TV producers. It's a very heartwarming, light-hearted drama. P recommends it.
    Witch at Court: A legal thriller where the protagonist is a smart female prosecutor who has been looking for her missing mom since she was a child. P says so far so good. 

    Completed Dramas

    2021/22 Releases:


    Juvenile Justice: Legal drama based on juvenile crimes and workings of juvenile court & judges. Great script, acting and direction. Highly recommended if you like crime/legal genre. 
    Business Proposal: Romcom, tropey K-drama done well. Funny and with good chemistry especially second leads. S & M recommend this one for a light-hearted watch. 
    Crazy Love: Romcom in boss-secretary, tropey drama. Pros: Great chemistry between the lead pair. Con: Male lead is a toxic boss for most part of the show. P says if this doesn't deter you, watch.

    Older Dramas:

    Prison Playbook : A slice of life drama from the director-writer duo of Reply Series and Hospital Playlist. Hilarious and a very heart-warming look at the life of prison cellmates and prison guards. Great ensemble cast. M highly recommends it.
