Thoughts: Don’t mind me, just silently sobbing after completing episode two. Wow, I just don’t know what it is about me and dramas that wreck my emotions lately, but clearly I have a type. I am always for female centric dramas and I especially eat up ones where there is good synergy with the cast. I am really enjoying this so far. I love that it is also about older women and that there are so many complex intertwinings happening especially as someone who is approaching her 30s soon. I loved the quote saying that we get surgery and take medicine when our bodies are sick and we should do the same when our minds are. I didn’t expect that we would already be told who would pass away which tbh I was also a little sad by that fact because we really don’t need another drama where a terminal illness affects a group of women. I think that each of the characters have something to offer so far and I am very invested in how the story goes. Son Ye Jin is so darn cute in some moments and we love to see it. I laughed, cried and got annoyed all in the span of the two episodes so I am aptly waiting to see how the remaining 10 go. Also, I missed Woo Jin so much so yeah that’s a positive as well. This is giving me Work Later, Drink Now vibes, but with a way melodramatic tone.
Recommendations: If you’re into female centric dramas, enjoyed Be Melodramatic or Nothing but Thirty
