Trigger alert. This one, also like My Mister that I'm watching is dark, sad, and emotional. I saw it in my recommended queue but resisted knowing it could be triggering. Because I am an easy target for dramas that are like novel page-turners, this one has completely sucked me in, despite it being triggering. The first like 20 minutes of episode one had me skeptical, but if you get through that, it starts to pick up fast from there on. And whoa...I have a feeling I'm in for an emotional ride as I continue to watch this. By the end of episode 2 I was not a fan of "the teacher" taking the child away from her abusers even though I didn't want the child to stay with her abusers either. I did not feel, in that moment that the teacher was doing the right thing. But, it's a drama and because of that I am definitely going to keep watching. It's clear that the teacher also has a history of being abused and separated from her mother, so we'll see how their stories intertwine. I just hope that the little girl feels safe and truly loved before it's too late.

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.)
