Plan to check out A Gentleman's Dignity (love the cast and the writer but 30+/40+ singletons interest me little whatever their gender).

Need to finish Love Rain (plan to binge on last four eps on the weekend).

I got more and more bored with King 2 Hearts so I am not even bothering to watch the last two eps.

Will be following Bridal Mask unless world ends or, even more unimaginably, it will suck.

Will only watch I Do I Do and Big if someone pays me. A lot.

Will be following Dr. Jin with major fast-forwarding (medicine=boring, OTP = hot).

Will pass on Ghost despite the leads unless I hear raves.

I am so behind on God of War, I just might give up until it's over.

Now that The Equator Man is done, I can marathon.

Might finally finish Ojakgyo Brothers (is awesome but not sure if double Joo Won will give me whiplash).

Will keep up with Queen In Hyun's Man.

Hmm, A Gentleman's Dignity? Not interested. When I saw the trailer and the whole red ribbon of fate thing, ugh, so tired. Like the potential bromance, but the cliches? No.

Love Rain is a maybe watch for me, outside of the OTP which I know you love, is the story compelling and/or makes sense?

King2Hearts, Man of Equator
I saw some of and dropped. I found both boring in parts, and Man of Equator was so uneven, so in spite of some great acting by the male leads, the plot wasn't enough to interest me.

Dr. Jin? I think I'll just watch the jdrama.

Like you, waiting on raves for Ghost, but also Bridal Mask, Chaser.

I'll probably try Queen In Hyun's Man and God of War because of the rave reviews.

I Do, I Do, not interested unless it turns out to be fresh and original, like that's going to happen. Same with Big, although recent plot details have made me more curious to know what will happen.

Gotta say, I'm more interested in July, August and beyond with Song Joong ki, Lee Min ho, and Lee Junki all starring in dramas that appeal to me, at least on paper.

Well, LR is a romantic melodrama so there isn't much outside the OTP.

I keep hearing about The Chaser - what is it about?

The Chaser - Detective Baek Hong-Suk (Son Hyeon-Ju) lost his 15-year-old daughter in a car accident and his wife died from shock shortly afterwards. Detective Baek Hong-Suk then searches for the truth related to his daughter's death and learns that her death is tied into a conspiracy.

Reporter Seo Ji-Won (Koh Joon-Hee) is the owner's daughter of a large corporation. She helps Detective Baek Hong-Suk to uncover the truth on his daughter's death. While covering the story, she finds out that her brother-in-law (Kim Sang-Jung), a top presidential candidate, is involved in corruption. Reporter Seo Ji-So comes into conflict between her family and the truth.

I found A Gentleman's Dignity to be so fresh and fun! Perfect for summer!

Sorry to hear that King 2 Hearts bores you. It has officially become my all time favourite kdrama. I don't know why, it's a very insane love and I am waiting to get my hands on the official DVDs.

Yes, I am adoring AGD even though it's normally not my thing. So cute!

Tried A Gentleman's Dignity and found it wanting. The 1st two episodes were quite fun and I liked the bromance but KHN's character drove me up the wall. I just wanted to smack her.... hard. She was SO frustrating and too much of an irritant for me to continue watching this. So instead of AGD I'll check out The Chaser which sounds much more up my alley.

Bridal Mask I'm really looking forward to.... I hope it won't dee-saa-point....

TEM was rather uneven but the wonderfull acting, cinematography and most of the script not sucking more than made up to it. The PD was a bit too fond of overly enhancing certain scenes but other than that he seemed to know what he was doing. The music PD on the other hand would have been best left where they found him/her.

I'm about 10 episodes behind in GoW as the subs come out so slowly. I could watch it raw I suppose but as I'm not in a hurry I'll just rather wait. I've got enough stuff to watch as it is.

QIHM is still my darling even if the last two episodes had a few blemishes. Kind of dreanding and anticipating the angst about to begin today.

Will check out Ghost though it'll probably get dropped too in the end. We'll see...

No interest in I Do I Do, Big or Dr. Jin - I'll probably read the recaps though, at least to begin with.

Awww, I actually liked KHN - normally this character would drive me nuts but for someone reason I loved her.

I haven't heard anything about The Chaser? What is it about.

So curious what your take is on BM

IDK, the character just rubbed me totally in the wrong way. I didn't much care for the leading man either. Kim Min Jong was by far my fave. If this drama had been about him I'd probably still be watching it. :)

The Chaser is about a cop whose daughter gets killed in a hit&run accident. The perp is a celeb with high up connections, I think he was having an affair with a politician's wife who also was in the car. The lady's father is some big wig in business with a lot of clout. You probably guess how it goes.... the celeb gets off scott free which causes the cop's wife to die from the shock. The cop then goes a bit nuts and accidentally kills the celeb at a very public kerwaffle and he has to go on the run. He starts digging deeper into the whys and hows of the accident and the people involved. This is what I've read anyway. I'm betting we'll get some political shenanigans as well. I haven't watched the first 2 episodes yet so I'm not sure how much of it holds true. I did watch about 10min from the start before I had to stop and it looks interesting.

I'll probably watch at least the 1st epi of BM today so we'll see....

Heh, more JDG for me :)

The Chaser sounds gooooood.

You can have all of him for all I care.... ;P

Yup, it does sound good only I've read a few comments that it starts out fine but the 2nd epi wasn't as good. Apparently too many (annoying?) clic├ęs started to pop up. Hmmmm... we'll see....

Btw, there is a (newish I suppose) blog that has Viki softsubs for all the new Sat-Sun AND Wed-Thur dramas? Looks like they are darned quick about it too....

A Gentleman's Dignity: I was so disapointed with the first episode. I don't like this kind of stories. Bores me to dead. KHN was better than I thought but she can't outwit the script. JDG surprised me since I know he can do better, a lot. And his haircut don't suit him. He isn't 30 anymore.

King 2 Hearts: Stopped with EP14. As much I liked the actors and how good they are, I fell asleep at the beging at EP14. I needs a LOT to fall asleep in front of a screen.

Will only watch I Do I Do and Big if someone pays me: Totally agree yet. I will read what Dramabeans and Koala has to say and maybe try then. I hated the movie BIG and never found it funny. IDID sound don't like a good script.

Dr. Jin: *haha* I'm interested in how medicine will work out in Joseon when you have nearly nothing of your modern pills, shots & more. The story with coldhearted doc who "loose" his woman is nothing new, so I can't be excited about that. And of course I like to see Jaejoong's cat eyes, even when he looked silly in Joseon attire.

Queen In Hyun's Man: I'm addicted to it. I couldn't stay away even when I wanted. Soompi thread keeps me sane with spoilers between Thursdays and Wednesday. I really love how normal the relationship of BD & HJ is. No podestrals, no awkward pureness, no bitchy drama...just a couple who accepts the other one as much he/she can. There are so many Dramas where I asking myself: Will they stay together when everything is solved? How will they manage with "boring" daily routine?

Awww, I surprised myself liking AGD when I almost never like this type of drama. Will see how it goes.

K2H - everyone raves about it so I keep quiet but after ep 6, it was downhill downhill downhill. Plus, the insano politics made no sense.

Dr. Jin is silly but fun.

Ah, poor dr. Jin. All the reviews I've read so far are blasting it to pieces. I mean I'm having a hilarious time reading the recaps. but I might give it a go because of LBS.
Well, in this case the Japanese version will reign supreme.
Ghost, no interest. LYH is good in cute and quirky roles otherwise she quite meh.
God of war, I'm so behind but it's so good. I have to marathon it some weekend.
I have to try AGD.
As for jdoraman, W no higeki is excellent. I'm not a fan of Takei Emi but here she's just amazing. The story is dark and twisted and I can guess the ending will be tragic.

Even I, enjoying Jin though I am, do not think it's a good drama :)

QIHM, continuing. No matter what happens in the last part, the first 10 were so perfect I could forgive almost anything.

Bridal Mask I'm definitely trying.

I'm tempted to try another episode of Love Rain.

I can't think of anything else this year until Faith.

Yes, try LR :)

BM was amazing.

Are you interested in Arang? Lee Jun Ki and supernatural

I've heard some things about Arang, but I need to hunt down more information. It could be something I'd enjoy.

Supernatural period mystery - that's why I am interested in Arang. That, and Lee Jun ki.

Looking forward to Dr. Jin, loved original JDrama.

Looking forward to Gentlemen's whatever, dying to see someone that qualifies as a MAN, rather than the pretty "flower" boys. Do they have to be sooo much prettier than their female co-stars? Aren't those girls embarrassed?

Love Rain? YUCK! YUCKY-ness! It was taking about 20 min to FF through the episodes, was waiting for the "good part." But rather than 20 hrs., spent only 1/3 of that time.

LOVE LOVE LOVE, can't stop watching Queen InHyun's Man, other than Bokhee Noona, think it could be the best drama of 2012! Writers, pls give/make a GREAT ending. Please?

LOLOL re Flower Boys. Yeah, I prefer my drama leads older and manlier - hence my love of sageuks :)

You mentioned watching the remaining episodes of Love Rain, please, don't waste your time. (SPOILER ALERT: The evil m-in-law magically turns nice, everyone lives happily, but WHY? no one knows, never explained. Writers must have simply been exhausted.) TERRIBLE DRAMA ALERT.

I finished.

I actually didn't mind the ending though I did find it weaker than the rest of the drama (common problem in kdrama world, alas).
