Hidden Gem: The Matchmakers

The Matchmakers went under the radar for a lot of us when it aired last year. It’s a sageuk (historical drama) and I don’t watch many of those. I got interested in this one because I heard it was fun, with a lighter tone and fewer men in scraggly beards than usual. So did it live up to the buzz?

Hidden Gem: Team Bulldog

Did you miss it this summer? I have to admit that I was a little distracted during quarantine and let some great dramas fall through the cracks. Team Bulldog: Off-duty Investigation was one of those that was on my radar, but didn’t quit make the live-watch cut.

If you’re in the mood for a ragtag band of misfits who accidentally fall into fighting crime together, Team Bulldog: Off-duty Investigation just might be the right drama for you! Read on to see what I mean.
