Addictive Rating: 3.5
Synopsis: Korean women in Seoul, in their early to mid twenties that live together in a home. They all deal with different past traumas and challenges that affect their present day. We watch them individually grow and mature throughout this season, as well as get closer as a group of roommates.
What I have to say: Maybe it’s because my college years are few enough back, but I found this drama super endearing. I loved it. It was easy to watch in that the plot kept moving and the characters had relatable issues many of us encountered in our early adulthood. The themes were sometimes pretty serious, making it compelling even to this 30-something woman over here. I also, not surprisingly – love the soundtrack.
I hear that in August 2017, a 2nd season will be out! I'll keep following that news because I definitely want to watch a season 2, which is rare in K-drama world.
Watch Season 1 on Drama Fever or Netflix. If you watch it on Netflix, look for it as "Hello, My Twenties."

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
