IT IS OFFICIALLY 2022!! We are at the end of another month and now ANOTHER YEAR! I have been writing this blog for over a year now WHICH IS CRAZY!! Naturally, we are going to put an end of December 2021 with a Wrap Up post and welcome January 2022 with WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO in terms of dramas for the month. Why did 2021 seem like it was moving at a snail's pace BUT ALSO GONE IN A BLINK OF AN EYE!?
DRAMAS/MOVIES I COMPLETED IN DECEMBER:
I did fairly well with the last month of December and dramas. Even with my inconsistency of watching dramas during the month due to the holidays, I still completed quite a few dramas. I also am behind on a lot of the dramas I am currently watching so that is an issue as well. 😂 Do you have an issue keeping up with the dramas you are watching during the holidays or is it the opposite for you?
The Silent Sea (Kdrama) (NETFLIX): I loved EVERYTHING about this drama. I liked that it seemed unique and new. The cast was good but we knew that going in. I MEAN DID YOU SEE THE CAST?! The production was TOP NOTCH! I would TOTALLY watch a second season of this drama. I did have some questions at the end but that was because it was totally written to have a second season.
Happiness (Kdrama) (VIKI): THIS WAS HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE KDRAMA OF 2021! I loved everything about it. I loved the societal issues discussed within the cover of a zombie drama. I loved the acting and the relationships of characters. I loved how it all mostly took place in 1 apartment building. IT WAS JUST SUCH A GOOD SOLID DRAMA!!
Between Us Special (Thai Drama Special) (Youtube): The Thai drama Between Us is one of my HIGHLY anticipated dramas and I HOPE IT COMES OUT IN 2022! This special both satiated my need for this drama BUT also made me want it sooner than ever. I JUST LOVE THIS COUPLE AND I NEED THEIR DRAMA RIGHT NOW!
Chimera (Kdrama) (VIKI): OCN DRAMAS WILL ALWAYS BE SOME OF MY FAVORITE DRAMAS! I just love the OCN network. Chimera wasn't perfect but it was a solid drama. It kept me interested and I loved the chemistry between the characters. It was slow at times, but I definitely have more of an appreciation for the actors in the drama and look forward to their future works.
Inspector Koo (Kdrama) (NETFLIX): I honestly wanted to like this more than I did. I think it was the way I was watching it which was trying to binge it. I am not good at bingeing dramas. I get bored if I watch too many episodes in a row of 1 drama. I did LOVE the cast, the group of misfits and the acting. THE OSTS WERE FANTASTIC!!
Jirisan (Kdrama) (iQIYI): I am in the minority and actually liked this more than a lot of other people. It definitely had faults and things that didn't make sense. I also found it ambitious and creative even if not everything worked out like it should have. I liked the mix of genres and thought the cast did great with what was given to them. I loved the cinematography and how beautiful the drama with the landscape shots.
Secret Royal Inspector & Joy (Kdrama) (VIKI): Overall, I liked this drama. I am a sucker for found family so, naturally, I loved that aspect of this drama. I wish there was more crime being investigated and not just 1 OVERALL crime and sometimes the comedy didn't work for me but that is a ME PROBLEM. If you like comedy, good acting and adorable couples, you will probably like this drama.
Captivated, By You (Jdrama) (VIKI): This was a drama I stuck in at the last minute, one the last day of 2021. It wasn't anything groundbreaking, but it was cute. I NEED TO WATCH MORE JDRAMAS! I do wish it was longer because I wanted to see more interactions with the characters. I did love that by the end, all the characters were connected in some way, and it was just a cute drama about friendship.
NEW JANUARY 2022 DRAMAS I AM EXCITED FOR:
I would like to say that I don't have a lot of dramas in January that I am looking forward too but that is probably a lie. I always find something. I want to not be looking forward to a lot this month because I am behind on most of what I am watching currently. SO, LET'S SEE WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TOO!
The Ghost Doctor (Kdrama) (VIKI): [STARTS JANUARY 3RD, 2022]
I could do with a funny drama right now. I don't watch many medical dramas but this one seems interesting. I haven't seen Rain in a drama for a while and OF COURSE, I LOVE KIM BUM! Speaking of people, I have not seen in a drama in a LONG TIME, UEE IS IN THIS DRAMA AND I LOVE HER! This cast with comedy could be a lot of fun so I am looking forward to giving it a try. I am always worried that comedy won't work for me but sometimes it does. WE WILL SEE!
Tracer (Kdrama): [STARTS JANUARY 7TH, 2022]
I hope this comes to a streaming site. I always can add another crime drama to my current watchlist. I like the cast and can see that they will work together well. I am sort of going into this drama blind if I can watch it because I have not seen any trailers. MAYBE THAT WILL WORK FOR ME!
Reset (Cdrama) (WETV): [STARTS JANUARY 11TH, 2022]
I know I mentioned this drama in another WRAP UP post because it was rumored to premiere in 2021. WELL, 2022 LOOKS LIKE IT IS THE YEAR THAT THIS DRAMA WILL COME OUT! I am always a sucker for time travel. I know of these actors in this drama but have never seen a drama of theirs, so I am always open to discover new actors/actresses. I mean, you combine suspense, crime, action and time travel, I WILL ALWAYS CHECK IT OUT!
The Journalist (Jdrama) (NETFLIX): [STARTS JANUARY 13TH, 2022]
One of this blog's new year resolutions is to watch more variety of dramas and shows, ESPECIALLY JDRAMAS! So, I am happy to see a new Jdrama coming out right away in January. I watched Ayano Go in Frankenstein's Love last year so, I love to see him coming out with a new drama so soon in 2022. I have not watched A TON of Jdramas so I think this might be my first Jdrama about corruption. We will see what I think of it.
Through The Darkness (Kdrama): [STARTS JANUARY 14TH, 2022]
Criminal Minds is one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE American television shows. Through The Darkness is about profilers SO, THIS DRAMA IS DEFINITELY GOING ON MY LIST! I hope it comes to a legal platform. I AM LITERALLY PRAYING THAT I WILL HAVE ACCESS TO IT BECAUSE THE TRAILERS LOOK SO GOOD!!
Color Rush 2 (Kdrama) (VIKI): [STARTS JANUARY 21ST, 2022]
I liked the first season of Color Rush so; I am going to check out season 2. I expect that it won't be the same story because one of the actors will not be back. Which I guess makes me curious of what it IS going to be about. Will it even be a BL drama given the concept of what Season 1 was? I don't need it to be a BL, just needs to be a good story.
All of Us Are Dead (Kdrama) (NETFLIX): [STARTS JANUARY 28TH, 2022]
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOREVER FOR THIS DRAMA AND IT IS FINALLY HERE!! I will watch anything with zombies AND THE TRAILERS LOOK SO GOOD FOR THIS!! I am ready for a mini binge. I am curious if these zombies will be different from what we have seen already in drama land OR WILL IT EVEN BE THE TRADITIONAL ZOMBIES?! 😲
JANUARY 2022 KPOP COMEBACKS/DEBUTS I AM EXCITED FOR
THERE ARE SO MANY KPOP COMEBACKS THIS MONTH! I mean it is JAM PACKED!! That means MORE MUSIC FOR US!! I am just excited to see music and groups getting comebacks and releasing new music. I always welcome new music to check out and explore. I watched the SMTOWN LIVE concert for ring in 2022 AND ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I had such fun...Did you guys see any clips from the concert or attend the concert yourselves?
