What Drama Should We Podcast Review?

Hi friends and fellow drama lovers!

It’s been a good while since I’ve posted in depth on dramas. There’s been some not-so-good news in my family regarding cancer, so I’ve been all out of sorts lately. However, I am still drama watching. That will never change.

As I don’t have my next podcast drama set in stone yet, I wanted to put together a poll. Please vote below and let me know what drama you’d love for Tiff and I to podcast about next.

Some may be older dramas—some may be new. One thing I can guarantee is that I’ll be podcasting about Vagabond later this year. That was my original project for May, but when the airing date got pushed back, I was a bit miffed as I was really looking forward to watching it.

Please vote in the poll below. I included a couple of Korean and Chinese dramas, old and new. I’ve included pictures, summaries, and links so that you may check out these dramas in more detail before you vote.
