Dramathoning Like A Fangirl #7 – Dramas With A Side of Kimchi

I think it is funny that we all chat together on Facebook about what we are watching, but sometimes we forget that we have a blog and our readers would also probably love some drama suggestions beyond just our recapping project.  So it is time again for The Fangirls to do some proper fangirling and do a Drama Banchan post!  Join us as we share what we like and don’t like about the current crop of shows.



JENNIE: I’m really liking how this story is beginning. I’m not putting all my hopes in it yet, but it has me curious. I never pictured a Goblin so hot!

CLKYTTA: I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this one will continue to be good. Fantasy Kdramas have a bad habit of starting out strong and then fizzling out.  I’m with Jennie, I never pictured a Goblin or a Reaper so hot!! I’m absolutely in love with this show!

KMUSE: I am officially declaring Goblin as having my favorite beginning episodes to a drama ever.  The characters are vibrant and so many of the scenes are truly memorable.   Sure there is always the chance it will implode in the future but I would forgive a lot of mediocre moments in the future for something that has brought me so much enjoyment to this point.  It is rare that I find a drama where I enjoy all the characters in it but so far this show has delivered.

Drama Geek: I’m not sure there has ever been a better pair of roomates or a sexier Goblin and Reaper. These two were born for these parts. I am in love with the look of this drama, the music (even the over the top stuff, it just fits), and I love each side character. Even the people who die are interesting. I have never been a fan of this writer but she is proving me wrong (so far) and I am so glad she is. I can’t wait for more interaction from our Reaper and Sunny and I think they have a very interesting back story that could be as sad and our main couples current story. Drama gods, please do not let this one disappoint!


Princess Wei Young


CLKYTTA: I just started this one, but so far it’s keeping me interested.  Everyone else was watching it so I had to see what it was all about. I love that Wei Young is a strong character, but I want to throat punch her maid and the older half sister.

KMUSE: I am really enjoying this drama despite the fact that it is getting to the point that things are getting a tad bit repetitive.  If Wei Young gets framed for one more murder/attempted murder/poisoning/theft I might scream but it is still worth the watch.  With only ten episodes to go, I doubt I will get overly mad and will for sure finish.

Drama Geek: I have to admit I’m stalled at 28. I wish I liked the main couple more and I think if I did then I’d power through the repetative framing. I might skip a few and finish it out. We’ll see.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo


JENNIE: I’m loving this show!!! I seriously didn’t know if I would like it, but our leads are super cute! Yes, it bugs me that he calls her fatty, especially after she told him not to, but he’s so endearing otherwise. And I like that she hasn’t really noticed him yet because of the beautiful Hyung. More girls should notice the amazing second leads!

KMUSE: I let Jennie’s enthusiasm push me into giving this drama a try and I am glad I did.  I was also really annoyed that they were having this stick thin (even with baggy clothes and an extra 20 lbs) playing a national Olympian.  But the cute OTP (one true pairing) have won me over.  Their friendship is so natural that you can’t help but love them.  I was also worried that the sports theme would just be one of those throwaway tropes that are ignored for the romance. However, they focus a lot of the story on the give and take necessary for competitive athletes.  I really appreciate that it isn’t just all fluff, or even them making every moment one of extreme drama and angst.  There is a great blend that I wasn’t expecting from a rom-com.
