I don’t even know why I decided to start Jugglers. To say that my drama watching schedule is over-packed would be an understatement. In the end, it just comes down to the fact that I can not let a possibly good drama remain unwatched. Before I knew what was happening I had pushed play for the first episode and here we are. So come join me and see if this is somehow going to become a staple in my schedule or if I decide it is an easy miss.
UGH. I think I am going to die with all the awesome dramas that are currently airing. And Jugglers is included in this list. I absolutely loved it!
The chemistry was spot on between all the characters. I am including the non-romantic relationships as well! We had cranky bromances, awesome sismances, and some serious sparks that are just waiting to explode into some skinship. Not to mention a cameo by the always sexy Sung Hoon.
I’m very excited to see more of everyone’s connections and how they develop both in and out of the office.
I would never have thought of putting Choi Daniel and Baek Jin Hee together as an OTP. But it surprisingly works really well. They have a peppy banter that just makes them entertaining.
Not to mention we also have Lee Won Geun thrown into the mix. That boy’s smile just makes me happy no matter the role he is playing. I especially enjoy when he is playing a rascally type of character and Bo Yool might be his most rapscallion to date.
I admit that corporate workplace dramas are not really my favorite genre. They either go super cheesy or seriously makjang. But so far and somehow, Jugglers has achieved that perfect middle ground.
There are a lot of inside jokes thrown in to make the audience laugh. But, at the same time, we are invited to care about the hardships these secretaries have to go through being at the whims of persnickety, and sometimes dishonest, bosses. I, personally, have found myself very invested in the leading lady’s story and am interested to see where the story takes us.
Would I Recommend?
I actually would recommend this drama. Jugglers is one of the more solid dramas that recently premiered and I think it is a hidden gem that is being overshadowed by flashier shows.
I hope this helped a bit for those trying to weed out which of the new shows to watch. Hopefully, it works better for you than it did me since I have weeded out very few shows so far.
Til next time,
