I really was going to try and wait until the end of this drama to write this post, seriously I was, but then, I decided I didn’t want to muddle the entire drama with my specific and pointed words to and for one character in particular Lee (greatest college boyfriend in the world) Shin. Somewhere around episode 8 or 9 I pinned this drama: The Shin Show and I haven’t regretted it one minute since.
Is it virtually impossible for a character to go from mediocre in appeal to becoming the only reason for watching in the course of say, one episode? Absolutely! — at least for me, generally but that definitely changed in this drama and this post is dedicated to telling you why.
I usually give a Kdrama I’m interested in about 5 episodes before I stop, drop and roll. I don’t necessarily suggest this method but I find that if the drama doesn’t make you want to stick around by the third week, it really isn’t worth it. Now I’m not saying dramas prove to be watching throughout it’s run, however, I can at least pinpoint why I invested my time by that time stamp. Allotting dramas this bit of room helps me to arrange what I think, how I feel and assess why I’m really watching. Therefore, it will be very rare that I ever post about a Korean drama I haven’t seen at least 5 hours of.
You’ve Fallen For Me aka Heartstrings has been airing for a month and just passed my cut off, so I now feel relatively comfortable to share my thoughts on the drama. I posted about it’s premiere awhile back and though it wasn’t my most anticipated July drama, I was definitely going to take a gander or two. Given the off-screen chemistry of the leading pair and the on-screen sizzle of the second, I was certain this drama at least had one thing going for it.

The 1st Seven
After May Madness, July is jamming us with another truckload of prospective dramas, that seem worthy of a peek or two. There are several dramas being announced or airing before the month is over and you need to be armed with a little info to keep track of them all. Preferably, they’re all major hits but I’m hoping (for me) there will be more that will fall by the wayside much like May.
Here’s a look at the dramas coming our way. Decide for yourself what whets your appetite, ’cause I’ve already chosen mine!
How will you spend July?
