Ahhhh! Why did I have to give this one a try? It's still airing in Korea so I can't marathon it as needed. I have to basically watch 2 episodes then wait a whole week. I thought about trying to put this one out of my mind until the entire series has been uploaded to Drama Fever so I can just watch it as I need to, but I also don't have the patience for that because I WANT TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
This is a dark drama. Non formulaic. Corporate politics and corruption. Loan sharks being abusive to anyone in their way. Marital affairs. Mistreatment of the elderly. Sibling loyalty. Parental disappointments. Despite this being anything but unicorns and rainbows, it really keeps you coming back for more because of the thick plot and riveting moments. I've seen 4 episodes to date and am definitely addicted.
See the complete list of dramas I've reviewed here.
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.)
