Addictive Rating: 3
Synopsis: 5 young women living together (presumably near Yonsei University in Seoul) have big life lessons and we witness it. There is one episode about 2/3 of the way through that is fairly violent and not pleasant to watch. Other than that, lots of clever and feel-good moments, plus many deep and sad moments too as these young women experience a variety of things that are easy to relate to.
What I have to say: This season incorporates male characters more. It also brings up the sad reality of how so many girls and women are victims of sexual assault. It brings in themes on PTSD, heartaches after a break up, family dynamics, and finding your own voice in your early 20s. I really hope they do a season 3!

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.)
