    To include this, now I will have 5 dramas to watch on weekends and 5 dramas on weekdays. Total of 10 dramas in a week! My eyes are getting blurred and already hurting reading subs. Lol!

    • Nabila

      Ahahahah, the same!! I must get new glasses, I guess ?

      • Sab

        maybe we should try learning Korean already. so we don’t need to read the sub. 🙂

    • Fish_Bowl

          I forgot to include “man who dies to live” but I watched 4 epsodes so far and decided to download all episodes first and save it for future viewing.

        • Fish_Bowl

          Thank you soo much! I’ll probably watch queen for 7 days soon and maybe some of the ones you’ve listed!

        • Athena Gliddon

          I finished Bride of the Water God and wasn’t all that impressed. But I love numbers 2, 3, 4, and 6, so I am going to give your #1 a try 🙂

          • Sab

            You’re so correct. “BOTWGP is the worst drama I ever watched. I don’t know why it was so popular and even ranked number 1 in all kdrma sites.

        • Amulya Kolusu

          I guess you have lots of free time and patience to watch not so good dramas too… no one I know is watching 9, db reviews are bad about 4 and 6. I did watch 5, I regret my habit of watching a show till the end once I started.

          • Sab

            I endured watching the worst drama – ” Bride of the water god”, so might as well finish “Bad thieF Good thief” since I already watched it. I dropped Manhole, Save me and before that I also dropped The king Loves.

      • Sab

        You may watch the recently concluded drama ” Queen for 7 days”. It’s the best drama for me so far for 2017.

      • Chatelaineces

        Try Hospital Ship. Ha Ji Won, one of Korea’s very dependable stars, is the lead actress. Min Hyun and Leo Seo Won are her co-stars. There have been 4 episodes of 30 minutes each that have been released. It has ranked #1 in its time slot and did double digit ratings on its early episodes. Looks very promising. I have enjoyed watching The King Loves, too. It is a historical love triangle that stars Yoona and Si Wan. Deserving of the Name is my other pick. This my first time to watch Kim Nam Gil do medical comedy. It has a time slip element but the story is interesting. There are two CDrama’s you may also want to check out: Love Lost in Time and the King’s Woman. I just realized four of these are historicals. Good stuff though.

        • Fish_Bowl

          Thank you soo much for the list of dramas! I’m a huge fan of ha jiwon so I’ll probably watch that soon and Im also currently watching the king loves. I’ve been looking for really good chinese drama so Im glad you told me the 2 dramas!
          And again thank you!
