I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS DRAMA. I guess it resonates simply because it's a couple that has been married for long enough to not be newlyweds, to be struggling with balancing jobs and parenthood, and to be struggling to connect with each other given how busy life is (especially in Seoul!).
The infidelity aspect of the drama is gripping and heartwarming. I feel like the social media story line adds a realistic touch to what really happens in 2016. After living in Seoul just earlier this year, I can relate to how hard it is to find time to be a good parent...that's part of why my family moved back to the USA, but that's another story!
The supporting characters have me equally drawn into their lives as the main ones, and that's rare for a drama. But I totally want to know what happens to all of them. I've watched this as each episode was released since it's been airing in Korea at the same, which has been challenging since I like having the ability to binge watch Kdramas. But, this one was so good I went with it. If you haven't started it yet, episodes 1-10 are already on Drama Fever, and 11 and 12 will be out later this week.
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.)
