Drama Fashion Review: Just Between Coat Lovers

Sometimes I have a hard time letting go of a drama that I am really fond of. In this case, I keep thinking about Just Between Lovers, a quietly endearing story of two people who find each other after having endured the same tragic incident in their past.

How many do you think there are?

The Maknae’s Journey through the Classics: Kill Me, Heal Me

Kill Me, Heal Me is aaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllll about the mental health! And I loved it the whole time I was watching it.

Hidden Drama Gem: Solomon’s Perjury

Dramas With a Side of Kimchi 2

My Sunday evenings are usually very similar after I get in bed. Look at all the dramas I need to catch up on… searches for hours for the next binge watch instead. For some reason the same feeling came over me on Thursday, (I blame it on slow Viki subs) and thankfully my search unearthed Solomon’s Perjury. With it’s shorter 12 episodes, I was able to binge this in four days, and you can now find it on Netflix. Join me for a fairly spoiler free review of the series. Continue reading
