MAY 2021 WRAP UP

I SWEAR - WHERE IS THIS YEAR GOING!? I feel like this year is just FLYING by! So, another month is done WHICH MEANS ANOTHER WRAP UP POST!! I did finish more dramas and movies in May but I still have not much that I am looking forward to in June. I definitely have more in June than I did in May though. Maybe that means I can pick up some dramas that are on my LONG want to watchlist! 🤪

DRAMAS/MOVIES I COMPLETED IN MAY:

I finished a variety of dramas/movies in May. Some definitely took me by surprise. Some also were better than others but I am sure that is always how it is going to be. I also started some new dramas in May so that is always exciting. What did you finish in May? Did you like it?


Beyond Evil (Kdrama)(VIKI): One of the BEST crime Kdramas I have ever seen. I loved every minute of it. I loved that it kept you guessing and everyone seems suspicious. I loved that the writers wrapped up everything nicely and didn't leave anything hanging. THE ACTING WAS PHENOMENAL! The chemistry between the 2 leads was special. This is a special Korean drama FOR SURE! You can read my review of it - HERE.


Move to Heaven (Kdrama)(NETFLIX): I definitely got a drama I was not expecting with this one. Given the first synopsis of this drama, I thought it would be a crime drama. I DID NOT EXPECT TO CRY BUCKETS! This is a heartwarming drama that explored death and regret. The acting was INCREDIBLE! The story made you reflect and think. I LOVED THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE UNCLE AND HIS NEPHEW! I highly recommend this drama and would not be mad with a second season if we got one. We don't need it but I would watch it.


The Soul (TMovie)(NETFLIX): This movie surprised me as well. I didn't think it was going to have so many genres mixed into one movie. THEY DID IT WELL TOO! The actors were great in the movie. You had some unpredictable parts of the story and some nice twists. You definitely have to pay attention to this movie because you will miss something. I enjoyed this move quite a lot. You can read my review of it - HERE.


Taxi Driver (Kdrama)(VIKI): I LOVED THE MESSAGE THIS DRAMA HAD! I liked the PSAs at the end of every episode. I loved the team and how they supported each other. It was VERY VIOLENT but that didn't really bother me. I would TOTALLY watch a 2nd season of this drama.


Criminologist Himura and Mystery Writer Arisugawa (Jdrama)(VIKI): I am a HUGE fan of Sherlock Holmes and Watson so I quite enjoyed this drama. Some of the cases were better than others but you really watched this drama for the characters. The characters and their interactions were the highlight of this drama. You can read my review of it - HERE.


Mouse (Kdrama)(VIKI): I had A LOT of fun with this drama. I know I am weird with this one because a lot of other people did not like it. Some people even dropped it. If you can't do dark, gruesome and violent - THIS DRAMA IS NOT FOR YOU! The drama definitely had its flaws but I just let it wash over me and enjoyed the ride. I LOVED THE OSTS AND ACTING!


Phoenix 2020 (Kdrama - Daily)(VIKI): THIS DRAMA WAS WAY TOO LONG!! I mean they took a 25-episode drama and made it into a daily drama so OF COURSE it was too long. The acting was good but since the story was based off an old drama, the story DEFINITELY felt dated. The story also had some plot holes in the end. I LOVE THE OSTS FROM THIS DRAMA THOUGH!

NEW JUNE DRAMAS I AM EXCITED FOR:

I am definitely looking forward to more in June than I was in May. I will have to see what I actually get access to because a few dramas don't have confirmed premiere dates yet. This may get me to finish the 2 cdramas I HAVE BEEN WATCHING FOREVER so I can move on and pick up some new completed dramas to watch. Here is what is on my radar for June and why I am excited (or not excited🤪) these dramas/movies.

Sweet and Sour (KOREAN MOVIE) (NETFLIX): [ON NETFLIX JUNE 4TH, 2021]

You put Jang Ki Yong in anything AND I AM THERE! He is one of my favorite actors so I am excited to watch this. THANK YOU, NETFLIX, FOR PICKING IT UP! I am curious to see his chemistry with Krystal and Chae Soo Bin and how the chemistry might be different depending on their characters. If this movie has cheating involved, I AM READY FOR THE DRAMA!

May December Couple (JDRAMA)(VIKI): [ON VIKI JUNE 10TH, 2021]

As I have said over and over again, Jdrama romances are my favorite. This drama seems to have some of my favorite romance tropes in it SO I AM TOTALLY CHECKING THIS DRAMA OUT when I get access to it. I also don't know any of the actors or actresses in this drama so I am EXCITED to discover some new actors/actresses to love.

Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) 2 (KDRAMA)(NETFLIX): [STARTS JUNE 12TH, 2021]

I AM STILL PISSED THAT THIS DRAMA WAS SPLIT INTO 2 SEASONS! I understand why BUT MAN IT KILLED THE MOOD IN SEASON 1. Am I skipping this season? NO! I am going to click play because I NEED TO SEE WHAT I WANTED TO SEE IN SEASON 1! I hope it is satisfying.

The Eternal Love 3 (CDRAMA)(WETV): [STARTS JUNE 1ST, 2021]

I AM A HUGE FAN OF SEASON 1 AND 2 OF THIS DRAMA! So, I am DEFINITELY checking out season 3 of this drama. Maybe I should do a rewatch of Season 1 and 2 before I watch this one. 🤔 I think the leads have GREAT chemistry and I have always loved their characters' story arcs. I am curious how this story will be different from the first 2 seasons. This season definitely seems to have a MUCH HIGHER budget than that last 2 seasons so that is good.

Voice 4: Judgement Hour (KDRAMA): [STARTS JUNE 18TH, 2021]

JUNE IS THE MONTH OF SEASONS 2, 3 AND NOW 4! I AM A HUGE FAN OF THE VOICE FRANCHISE SO YOU BET I AM CHECKING THIS ONE OUT! I have my fingers-crossed that we will be getting it on some streaming site BECAUSE I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE! I am ready for all that serial killer goodness!

Ruroni Kenshin: The Final (JMOVIE)(NETFLIX): [ON NETFLIX JUNE 18TH, 2021]

Now I have heard of these movies and have seen PLENTY of still photos. I have never been able to watch any of the movies from the franchise because of access BUT NETFLIX HAS SOLVED THAT PROBLEM FOR ME! I am hoping this means Netflix will pick up the other movies but at least I HAVE THIS MOVIE TO CHECK OUT!

Fall in Love (CDRAMA):

I am not going to lie. I am attracted to this drama because of the posters and stills of this drama. I don't know any of the actors or actresses in it. I LOVE A GOOD REPUBLICAN ERA CHINESE DRAMA! Now this drama doesn't have a confirmed premiere date and is only rumored to premiere in June. So, we will see if it actually happens. If it does, I hope I have access to it because THE POSTERS AND STILLS LOOK BEAUTIFUL!

Between Us (THAI DRAMA):

Win and Team were my favorite couple in Until We Meet Again SO I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS FOREVER! It does not have a premiere date but it is rumored be airing in June. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEIR DRAMA! I hope it premieres in June and I get to watch it.
