I happen to like a little angst in my dramas but I have some wonderful friends on discussions that need some new “Comforting Dramas” What do you guys got…
I’m waiting too bc so far there’s nothing there worth watching so far. I’m waiting for Alien (MAY 25?) with Woo Bin and a great supporting cast
During the Goryeo dynasty, Taoists try to take a mysterious sword. In the present day, aliens appear on Earth. A time door soon appears between late Goryeo dynasty period and the present day. Due to this, a chaotic situations occur. (Source: AsianWiki)
I did this for you guys - I will do some research! Feel free to list some of your “OLD” favorites
Lee Jong Suk and Cha Eun Woo have a new movie but probably not a feel good
Park Hyung Sik has a new drama “Happiness” but it is probably not what you are looking for:
This is like reading a good book on a rainy day with cocoa - I love Seo Kang Joon and Min Young
Ji Sub is just so gorgeous and this is so funny
I love MEOW - Kim Myung Soo “L” fantasy drama
Kim Jae Wook this is just flirty and fun
Junho and Jany Hyuk I love this sizzling cooking drama
I have not seen this one!
And I would not recommend Something In the Rain! As Feel Good
Sounds fantastic but they just started filming in April. I wonder when we’ll be able to start watching. They never mention if we’ll have it here at RViki. I guess I’m gonna have to do more re-watching of my fave back in the days.
I am watching DARK HOLE but I’m not too enthusiastic either. TAXI DRIVER is too brutal some times, so is another one that don’t excite me too much, but maybe others here might like it.
PS I loved PROTECT THE BOSS I can say without a doubt is a great one.
Gonna start this one today. I didn’t know they had it here.
Although some angst -
One of my favorites - watch for his “breathing” in! that @sweetybirdtoo and I find SEXY
I really think we must be twisted, but at least I’m not alone. lol
Quess what @sweetybirdtoo ok taecyeon was on LIVE and he did it SEVERAL times! He was trying to get his cat to listen to him
Was that Instagram? Hopefully someone recorded it and will post it to YouTube.
Ok I think DEVILISH JOY is not for me and YES he did his sssssssssss sound at the beginning when he gets annoyed with main girl (I’m sorry but she can’t act for nothing) My poor Tower Boy wasted his talent on this one. The story needed some rewriting THE WHITE TRUCK OF DOOM appears in a street where no cars are allowed. The story is a TOTAL MESS and his lovely smile and gorgeous face is not enough for me to watch this disaster. I stopped on episode1 at 50 minutes and change.
It was one of my first! It had good skinship. I just enjoyed him so much. He is in FATED to Love you but that is a tear jerker
Yep - I don’t see that he saved it so hopefully someone is subbing it and will put it out on utube
I am currently watching this one that is a T-drama! Just a good old easy watch
I have to say when he washes her hair - melt melt melt
You crack me up - I started this collection for my EXTREMELY Choosy friend - she made herself finish Devilish Joy because of Choi who she loved in FATED. But she didn’t really like it
I had 123 shows in there and she made me take half of them out!!! hahahahahaha!
“Jimi ni Sugoi! Kōetsu Garu Kono Etsuko” is a rarity in Romantic Comedies in that it’s not just “comfort food for the soul,” it gives you a lot to think about and a heroine to root for (important for us heroine addicts. )
A few that Viki doesn’t have that make you feel as if you’ve come home:
Yasashii Jikan (Peaceful Time) - a father/son estrangement drama set in Hokkaido, with Ayaka Hirahara’s magical “Ashita” as the theme music:
Asakusa Fukumaru Ryokan, which stars Nishida Toshiyuki (he was the gruff noodle chef in “Ramen Girl,”) playing a nosy inn owner in the Asakusa district of Tokyo. His nosy prying into his guests’ private lives provides a whole lot of laughs and sometimes three-hanky heartstring-tugging:
Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou (a.k.a. Antiquarian Bookshop Biblia’s Case Files) is about the mysterious owner of a used bookstore who has a Sherlock Holmes-like ability to solve mysteries about people, using only clues she gets from the books people bring in. A quietly-spectacular performance in this drama by Gouriki Ayame:
“Voice” is one of my all-time favorite dramas, and weirdly is available on YouTube. It’s basically a detective drama - but with the twist of the detectives being students of forensic science, who solve cases using clues they get from people who have died. Despite the genre it has a mellow, thoughtful mood with some truly moving drama throughout, which will have you thinking about the people and events long after you’ve finished watching.
I Am Not A Robot
Shopping King Louie
She is Pretty
My Girlfriend is a Guimho
Fated to Love You - Although I cried
I’m waiting for that onw with Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah “Our Blues” wonder what thet’s going to be like…
