Flash Review: After The Rain [Drama Special]

I must say, I’m very much enjoying my adventures exploring KBS’s drama specials. I’m pretty excited to share my latest find with you guys.

If you’re looking for a quick spot of drama that’s down-to-earth and easy, yet full of heart and poignance, you need look no further than drama special After The Rain. At just a little over 2 hours of total screen time, Show sure manages to pack a punch, both in terms of story and feels.

Highly recommend. 🥰

Flash Review: Kang Deoksun’s Love History [Drama Special]

Major shout-out to dear Beez, who took the time to write, to suggest this little drama special to me.

I’d really liked drama special Let Us Meet, but Beez hadn’t liked it as much as I had, and she said that this drama special, was everything she’d hoped Let Us Meet could have been, but wasn’t. Of course, that really intrigued me, because if I’d already really enjoyed Let Us Meet, mightn’t this mean that I would possibly enjoy this show even more?

..And that’s exactly what happened, you guys. I did like this even more than Let Us Meet, and I hope you will too. 😋

Flash Review: Off The Course [Drama Special]

I realize that over the last little while, I’ve grown a significant soft spot for jTBC dramas in general. Sure, there’s no network that consistently puts out great shows, but I have noticed that more often than not, the shows put out by jTBC tend to work nicely for me.

Which is why, when I saw that jTBC was putting out this little drama special, I couldn’t not check it out. Well, that, and the fact that this story sounds like just the kind of heartwarming, poignant sort of story that I’d eat up with a spoon. 😉

At just 2 hours of screen time, Show manages to pack quite a lot of meat on its bones, and I’m suitably impressed.

Flash Review: Must You Go? [Web Drama]

To be honest, everywhere I’ve looked, I’ve seen a fondness for this show, which is why I’ve been patiently trying to get into the zone of loving this show, with each episode that I’ve watched.

Sadly, try as I might, I just couldn’t find the “love zone” with this one. This doesn’t mean I hated it, though. I just didn’t love it as much as everyone else seems to.

Also, just because I didn’t love it, doesn’t mean you won’t. Different strokes for different folks after all, right? I hope this quick review will help give you an idea of where you might land with this one. And if you happen to land in the love zone with this show, give it a little extra love for me, please?

Flash Review: Let Us Meet [Drama Special]

This show ought to be right up your alley if:

(a) stories set in the 1930s are your kind of thing,

(b) you like the idea of Sohn Ho Jun getting to play romantic lead (if you’ve seen him in Go Back Couple, you’ll know he does lovely bedroomy eyes 😍), &/or

(c) you find Jo Bo Ah cute and charming,

..because this little drama special serves up all of that, and more – in just 1 hour and 5 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this little show, and I hope you guys will like it too.

Flash Review: Sweet Home

I did it, you guys. I, the self-proclaimed horror wuss, have finished watching Sweet Home. Achievement unlocked, officially, ha. 🥳

For the record, the reason I decided to try this one out, despite my general aversion to horror, monsters and gore, is because of my recent love for Lee Do Hyun, thanks to the very wonderful 18 Again (go watch it, if you haven’t!). That, plus the fact that everyone who’s seen it, has been saying such good things about it; mainly, that apart from the blood and gore, it’s very meaty, and there’s a lot to unpack with regards to the psychology of our characters. That all sounded pretty compelling to me.

Now that I’ve emerged on the other side, I think it’s safe to say that I don’t think I loved it as much as some of you, but I did enjoy it a lot more than I thought I would. Considering my horror-wussness, I’d count that a win, yes?

Flash Review: Let’s Eat Something, Anna [Web Drama]

Are you on the market for something quick, light and cotton-candy fluffy on your drama plate? Coz I ended up liking this little web drama, at just five quick 12-15 minute episodes, quite a bit more than I’d expected to, and think that it’s worth a look – with the right lens adjustments, of course.

To be honest, I almost decided against checking out this one because of its pretty average ratings on MyDramaList, but decided to take a look anyway, on the off-chance that I’d buck the trend and perhaps like it more than other viewers seemed to – and whaddya know, I do like it more than everyone else! 😂

..And I’m hoping that perhaps you might, too. 😉

Flash Review: Review Notebook Of My Embarrassing Days [Drama Special]

Ah, YouTube algorithm, you know me so well. Thank you for repeatedly suggesting this drama special to me, because I ended up clicking on it – and loving it.

Honestly, this feels like a cute rom-com, condensed into just 1 hour and 8 minutes. I actually wish this were longer, coz I enjoyed it so much. ❤️ If you like your rom-coms a little earthy, and have an hour and 8 minutes to spare, I highly recommend checking out this one.

Flash Review: Be Positive [Web Drama]

After Prashil recommended this little web drama to me, I looked it up, and was surprised to find that this has one of the highest number of views ever, for a web drama. We’re talking 50 million(!!!) views as of 30 December 2016. Considering that this drama aired on 31 October 2016, that’s mind-bogglingly impressive.

Those are some king-sized numbers, for a diminutive little show that clocks in at about an hour, with 6 episodes of approximately 10 minutes each.

The question is, did I like it – and would you?

Flash Review: Traces Of Love [Drama Special]

If you’re on the market for a quick spot of drama without more than a one-hour commitment, and if you enjoy the more realistic modern take on love and romance (vs. the popular Oppa-Candy kdrama tales that lean more urban legend), this little drama special could work for you.

Character vibe-wise, this also reminds me of 2018 Drama Special You Drive Me Crazy, so if you enjoyed that, I think there’s a good chance you’d like this one too.

PS: At MC‘s suggestion, I’ve also created a handy-dandy index of short drama things that I’ve reviewed, which you can check out here. This basically covers web dramas, drama specials, movies, and short dramas (which I’ve decided to define as dramas which are 10 episodes or less). I hope you guys find it useful! ❤️
