Drama Updates: 27 June 2015

I should very well call this week a dropping-dramas week as I’ve said bye-bye to two shows that I was initially liking. I wouldn’t say that I dropped them like hot potato because it was a deliberate decision. So here is a brief summary of my current drama world:

Producers (Completed)

The drama ended its 12 episode run but the episode length will tell you that the show is actually not meant for “of wow! only 12 episodes!” praise. Each episode runsΒ for almost 1.5 hour but I never felt bored even for a microsecond. I especially liked how it ended. I’ll be reviewing it soon but for now, I can say that it was a thoroughly entertaining drama with lots of humour and good acting across the board. The OTP game was what annoyed me but overall it was a fun ride.

Mask (Dropped after 6 episodes)

I was getting bored! Except the main pair and our hero Min Woo, everything else was making me go for my fast forward button. It didn’t help that nothing substantial was happening as if it was stuck at the same place. Also, Ji Sook was acting too passive.

Warm And Cozy (Dropped after 5 episodes)

There was nothing actually wrong with the show till I watched it. There was nothing mind-blowing but it was a fairly smooth watch. Then came a break from my drama watching hours and when I came back, I no longer had the desire to watch its next episode. Plus, reviews of the new episodes didn’t sound too well.

I’m really looking forward to many shows β€” The Time I Loved You, Scholar Who Walks The Night, Oh My Ghostess and want to start Hidden Identity and High Society. This factor was also responsible for me dropping the dramas that I mentioned above.

    did u drop orange marmalade too since I dont see any recaps after ep.4. I didnt watch producers, no actually I checked the pilot episode but I feel a bit boring. so currently, I’m still following Mask and pilot episode of Hidden Identity get me hooked so maybe I will keep watching. also I’m watching Warm & Cozy for elders’ story honestly πŸ˜†

      Oh yes….I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I’m dropping OM as it went into crazy ville..everything was al over the place for me…and it was not delivering according to the promise I saw in first 2 episodes…*sigh*

      Producers is a show that if you don’t like that sort of format, it won’t work for you. For me, I enjoyed it immensely and laughed a lot while watching πŸ˜€

      Hidden Identity…I want to start it soon….yay that you liked the pilot!

      The elders are really cute in W&C πŸ™‚

    Nooooo, not MASK!!! Actually episodes 5 and 6 were very average, even I thought so, but I guess that the first 4 episodes were so good, the contrast with 5 and 6 were silly apparent, but that doesn’t last, episodes 9 and 10 especially are really good – I almost want to spoil, that’s when Ji-Sook wakes up. You can actually skip 7 & 8 if you want, and watch episode 9 for instance. I hope you give it a try even later, even in a few months when you have some time / less dramas to watch.

    Warm & Cozy, I still don’t understand… this story was so all over the place… I just didn’t get it.

    As for Producers, it’s really a hit or miss, you have to like the format and humor, and I wasn’t into it, but since they changed director from episode 3, I may go back to it later this year. Not a promise, but maybe!

      Awwwwww…..so sorry Blue….I’m glad that the plot picked up in later eps…I might pick it up later but for now it’s on hold…more than anything, I was getting bored by many characters…like Ji Sook’s family, Min woo’s family β€” his sister, mom, dad…

      Warm & Cozy….it was an easy watch but I didn’t love anyone like I always do with Hong Sisters’ dramas…

      Yes….Producers is totally a hit or miss for everyone…couldn’t agree more! I was one of the few who actually liked the style in first 2 episodes and were sad that it was dropped later on.

    I can’t believe you dropped W&C and Mask! You hardly drop anything, right? You’re a kdrama dream bff πŸ™‚ Same as Blue, I dropped Producer after 2 ep. Maybe will go back and watch someday. Sounds like the new PD turned it around!

      Hahahaha….noooo…I drop a lot….especially when there is a huge gap between episodes due to some RL commitments…my interest just wanes…. πŸ˜‰
      Just like I told Blue, Producers is totally a hit or miss for everyone. I was one of the few who actually liked the style in first 2 episodes and was sad that it was dropped later on.

    Wow snow! I thought I was the only one who think mask is kinda slow but so glad I found someone who feels the same! I was planning to dropping mask, but then since i was really loving the firsts episodes, i think im gonna hang in there, but of course i clicked fast forward like a lot. I just wanted to see the main characters really hehe

    For warm and cozy, I dropped it since the first episodes but sometimes i read the recap if i feel like it hehe so yeaah

    and i love producers as well! I feel like it was so entertaining. just my cup of tea. πŸ™‚

    I watched hidden identity, ep 1 & 2 are reallyyyy greaat. but i dont know i just dont feel like it to continue, perhaps sometimes in the future i will continue to watch

    for, high society, i dont really think there’s much going on there. but cant wait to hear how you feel about it.

    and im looking forward for oh my ghostess as well! πŸ˜€

      Yay that I’m not alone…I was starting to think that it was only me whose interest waned after first few eps…
      Warm and Cozy…well, I didn’t dislike it but then didn’t like it enough to contniue…and with so many shows coming up, I didn’t have time for things I was not enjoying anymore!
      I’m excited to start High Society…I hope it’s good….not expecting much though.
