As I’ve watched a copious amount of dramas since May of 2015, I thought it was long overdo to add onto my original list found here. This time, I’ll be adding other Asian dramas to the mix to make this list more well-rounded. I have watched many amazing series in the past year, and while I don’t get to mention or post about them all, there are characters I simply cannot forget. I love a good romance and having any excuse to dote over my favorites.
Note: I took an agonizing amount of time on YouTube searching for the videos that I felt best encompassed these characters and showcase why I love them as much as I do. Please enjoy and let me know what you think. I might continue these kinds of posts in the future if there’s an interest for it.
Guess what, readers?!
If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch Descendants of the Sun, it’s officially on Netflix.
It’s not something I say lightly, but this is easily in my top 5 k-dramas of 2016 so far. If you’re looking for something to binge-watch this weekend, I highly recommend this one. Once you start, it’s hard to stop. You can thank Song Joong Ki for that.
Descendants of the Sun has become a ratings powerhouse in Korea. It’s breaking viewership ratings left and right; it’s also breaking a lot of hearts. (Namely mine.) I’ve become swept up in this drama, and while I just don’t have any kind of schedule to do a full episode recap of any episode, I decided to settle for a ’10 Reasons’ post for now.
I have plenty of plans to post about Descendants of the Sun, but it won’t be full episodes. It will mostly be my thoughts on our beloved characters and what they’re going through. I’m big on discussions, so if you really like to discuss your dramas in details, I’m that person.
If it’s any indication of my posts lately, I’ve been in a k-drama funk. And when I say funk, I mean I’ve been in a very fussy, particular mood that has left me frustrated beyond belief. For the past few months, none of the new k-dramas caught my eye. If you’re sensing an ‘until’ coming, you’d be correct. Until Descendants of the Sun, I was feeling bored and listless. I even switched gears to Thai dramas (lakorns) for a while. Eventually, I found my way back and I couldn’t be happier with my gut decision to give this drama a fair shot.
