Finally didn’t have to wait till end of the month or 2 months later to log in another blog entry 😛
And also for once non-yoga & food-related entry 🙂
Some time back, I was regularly watching Korean dramas, to the point that I even had a page on this blog to specifically ‘track’ the dramas that I have watched / plan to watch etc. …… until my viewing habits gradually shifted towards varieties which requires less energy and time to ‘chase’. Another reason was also that it’s not that much fun watching already-telecast dramas when spoilers are all over the internet.
Until recent stresses and frustrations here and there got me re-thinking about my evening routine again, and viola, drama watching came back into the picture again! After reading around soompi / dramabeans for what’s currently in the K-Drama scene …… decided on Witch’s Court.
Somehow or another, it is always more ‘fun’ catching up with a drama ‘live’ as opposed to watching backlogs 1 month later (see above) as there is the added excitement of knowing how the plotlines gradually pan out. As much as it is not a hallyu wave drama with idol/top star casting, more importantly the acting is decent, and the cases interesting enough in spite of a rather vanilla villain lurking in the background.
As Witch’s Court subject matter primarily deals with sexual assault crimes, ironically in a case of reel mirroring the real life – the recent news has revealed impropriety of a famous Hollywood studio mogul and of Kevin Spacey as well.
The upside of it all – I have something to look forward to on weekday evenings which includes prowling soompi forums for live recaps, catching up with the drama itself later on my tablet/laptop. Since the main female lead (Jung Ryeo Won) was in the classic ‘My Name Is Kim Sam Soon’ a good 12 years ago (year 2005) – it got me keen to re-watch this drama again as well. Will see what comes next then.
