April 2020 Blogging
Looking forward to this series….
The King: Eternal Monarch. The 16 episodes of this tvN network series will air on Friday and Saturday Apr 17 through Jun 6, 2020.
Why am I watching this show? Two reasons:
1. Lead Actor – Lee Min Ho. He is one of my cadre of cuties, an actor I’ve followed and watched many series he has been in. My first kdrama was Boys Over Flowers with Lee Min Ho. I’ve watched him ever since.
2. Writer – Kim Eun Sook. In my 2020 resolutions, I decided I’d start expand my series selections based on writers not just actors. Kim Un Sook is on a roll generating stellar series. I thoroughly enjoyed her last three series Mr. Sunshine, Goblin, and Descendants of the Sun.
What’s this show about? Yi Gon, the third Korean emperor, finds himself in a parallel world where he teams with a female detective not only catch criminals but also close the door between the two parallel worlds.
Genres: Historical, Romance, Drama, Sci-Fi.
How can you watch this show? Netflix will air this series which airs on the SBS network.
The World of the Married. The 16 episodes of this JTBC network series airs Friday and Saturday from Mar 27 – May 16, 2020. This puts it direct competition with The King: Eternal Monarch which also airs on Fridays and Saturdays. I believe The King be the higher priority show.
Why am I watching this show? As noted above in my 2020 resolutions, I will select series for actresses not just actors. I enjoyed the ageless Kim Hee Ae and Yoo Ah In in Secret Affair about a married woman (Kim Hee Ae) that had an affair with a younger man (Yoo Ah In). The timing worked out, so I decided to give this one a go.
What’s this show about? Ji Sun Woo (Kim Hee Ae) is a successful doctor who is happily married to Lee Tae O (Park Hae Joon), or so she thinks. Her world changes when she finds out her husband is having an affair.
How can you watch this show? This is on the JTBC network.
How will I blog this drama? With each episode lasting one and half hours which is too much typing for my typical blog-as-I-watch style. Therefore I’ll watch an episode, then write a mini-recap and my thoughts.
