Sick on the weekend…

I have been sick all weekend, which sucks…but on the plus side, I have so much drama watching time on my hands! So far, I have finished Reply 1997, written reviews on other dramas I finished, and started Another Oh Hae Young. I also started High End Crush, Personal Taste, and We Got Married. But Another Oh Hae Young is the most interesting right now. I wish I wasn’t watching Weightlifting fairy with someone else because it is killing me to not just marathon it right now.    I start a lot of new dramas when I am sick because I hate when they end.

Things you can understand and relate to as a kdrama fan, and a place … #random Random #amreading #books #wattpad:

Now for a quick review on Reply 1997.

The drama was very cute. I liked that it had short episodes, and the story was great. I loved watching the kids in the late 90’s because that was kind of my time too. I was a little bit younger than them, but I remember the mad scramble to tape your favorite show on your VHS player. And as crazy as Shi Won was about H.O.T, that is how I probably would have been about N*Sync had I been 16-18 instead of 10. So, if nothing else, I would have liked it for those reasons. Lord knows how much of a fangirl I have become…just for Korean Idols instead of American ones…and I am not a teenager, so that is kind of embarrassing sometimes.

The lowest score they got was for the significant lack of eye candy. I like some of the actors, but in this show, they did not look good. But you grow to love them as you get to know them. So, all in all, solid B.
