Psychopath Diary: The Good and the Bad

I certainly did not plan to start watching Psychopath Diary in the nearest future, but somehow, between moving into a place nearer to work and suddenly having all these free hours to myself made me start watching, because why not?

I tried planning a proper overall review of the series, but I failed once again because I was too busy giggling and fawning over the finale. All of a sudden, it felt empty after the drama ended. I was grasping at straws, trying to find something to fill the gap and nurse my withdrawal from the drama. Soon, the post-drama interviews of the cast started pouring out, and a friend of mine on Twitter (you know who you are!) made a suggestion: why don’t I try to translate the interviews?
