The KBS-produced Netflix drama One More Time (헤어진 다음날/The Day After We Broke Up) is an example of having incredible potential, but falling short in execution, keeping it from becoming a truly great series.
March 17, 2020. It’s the first day of a de facto quarantine here in the San Francisco Bay Area. And one of my first thoughts is I wish had a group of friends like the gang on the Netflix Korean drama My First First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) to spend it with.
I’d been meaning to finish this review of jTBC’s 2015 series D-Day (디데이) for a while now. It’s actually been a while since I last watched the entire series. But having started Sweet Stranger and Me starring Kim Young Kwang, I was reminded of how great D-Day was so I quickly rewatched the first couple of thrilling episodes before finishing up this review.
Having caught up with the currently airing Itaewon Class (Oy vey, more on that after it completes its run), I decided to check out another series while waiting for the next new episodes. That series, Love Alarm (좋아하면 울리는), ended up being a refreshing and very welcome contrast to the aforementioned series. And again, I’ll have more to say on that later on.
Netflix’s first original Thai drama The Stranded (เคว้ง) does not necessarily break any new ground plot-wise. But it is refreshing in its treatment of the familiar material and in its featuring of talented Thai actors.
