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 think it was just before its final work of airing, and about two weeks later, here I am, trying to make myself stop thinking too much about it. I am an easy person, after all, because it doesn’t take much for me to be obsessed with a drama, as long as it manages to make me curious and doesn’t tick my annoy-o-meter. Psychopath Diary has lots of things it’s good at, but there are some kdrama clichés it retained that might somehow ventured on the bad side.
2019 has already came to an end, and I have to say that it was one of the most eventful years for me: after deciding to change jobs the year before, last year started out pretty bad for me, having to work almost as tirelessly as I had to in my previous job. However, things took a better turn when I finally got an unexpected job offer in March: a normal job with normal working hours, which means a good time to get back to my drama watching! But it’s not that easy, since I had to make a daily 4-hour commute…and I was left with little time to watch. Still, it’s better than none, and I managed to get this stagnant blog up and running again, somehow.
FROM ME TO YOU
It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a proper review for a show, and I think this one deserves the shout out. I have to admit that I only knew about My Absolute Boyfriend for two reasons: 1) It is a Korean remake of the popular Jdrama Zettai Kareshi (also translated to Absolute Boyfriend), and 2) It is a pre-produced series starring Yeo Jin-goo, Minah, and Hong Jong-hyun. I was just going to have a short peek at it when it finally landed itself a broadcast spot on SBS’ Wed-Thu slot, but here I am, waiting and having a good long thought on the issues brought up by the drama.
The most difficult thing to wait for, after a drama has aired, is probably the next episode. Oh, how hard it is to count the days until the next Monday! tvn’s 왕이 된 남자 (The Man Who Became King/ English title: The Crowned Clown) is slowly and surely out there messing with my mind and heart, but I don’t mind it at all. It’s just…a bit heart wrenching, especially after watching this week’s episodes. Do I stop watching at this point, fearing that my heart will be shattered into pieces? Most definitely not, because I have to see this until the end, be it a bitter or sweet, maybe bittersweet ending.
