Ghostwritting/book stealing is an important plot point in both. Both have a muse figure, a love triangle of sorts and are well shot and rather slow-paced. Bonus points for bookshelves galore (more reallistic in A Muse, carrying metaphorical hints to their owners personalities in Chicago Typewritter).

Same vibes, fantasy drama that leaves you hanging. Goblin is a lot better but CT does a good job at stepping outside the box too.

    I'm so in love with this drama so far. I do have to admit that my opinion might be biased since I will watch and love anything in Yoo Ah In in it.

    Until 6th episode I simply liked this drama but it wasn't very groundbreaking, in my opinion. But this sixth episode changed my mind, like seriously. It was wonderful. And the music is just amazing. This really is getting better and better!

    Ep 6 has been amazing. The puzzle pieces are coming together and we can understand a little better the story. All is so beautiful. I love the three leads. I can't wait for the next episode.

    Personally i love the three leads, i love the pace (slowly but sure lol) and the mysterious side in it. I like it when i can't guess what will happen in the next episode :) so far, it's perfect!

    Gosh the slow pace is ruining it for me. Going to have to put this on hold and then cotinue watching once more episodes have aired. Maybe this is more suited to binge watching.

    Finding a truly canon #OT3 is so rare, usually the closest I get is just vague hints or implications or "what-ifs" or behind-scenes jokes.. but ~this? The writers are really messing with me this time!

    I honestly don't kno if my heart can take it.. x__x (please let the trio get their happy-ever-after!!)

      I swear the OT3 game is SO GOOD here! I do think it might actually be possible here, the happily ever after OT3

      After the horrible mess (to me) that was "Don't Dare to Dream" (forever kicking myself for not obeying the warning riight in that title, lol), I was like, oyy never again will I live-watch a series! ie better to "wait & see".. well, I caved for Dokkaebi cuz of all the shippy advertising piquing my curiosity (& ~still have mixed feelings about it, but overall positive cuz LDW as our lil angel?? omg looove) which then led to needing extensive emotional recovery major, until ditto for ~this one, promos pulling me in, so here I am again.. weaker than ever xD

      Btw, of all the dramas I seen so far: My Love Patzzi has my ~fave & most OT3 ending!! <3

      & for more similar trio-shippy goodness.. #lovelovelove

    the drama was kind of messy at first and it kind of made no sense especially because of the random flash backs but all is starting to come together and ITS SO GOOD the script is quite tight!!

    I just started on this drama, currently on episode 2, and I find this drama weird, and not in a good way. Does the drama develops a plot later? The flashback scenes doesn't seem to do any importance and doesn't ignite viewer curiosity.

      The next episodes are getting better and better! I didn't like the flashback scenes at first, but now I'm craving for more. Each episodes of this drama always got me shook and left me with so many questions in mind.

      I've always loved slow paced stories, cause there's always more details involved when it's paced slow and you understand so much more with details. I for one really like it when there's a lot of elements to a same character and that's achieved well in slow paced dramas. You get to know them slowly, then delve into the plot or romance.

      Also, Yoo Jin Oh is ADORKABLE!

      Me too. They look so adorable together. And Kim Shin and The Grim Reaper!

      Seriously, I hope the writer's won't rush the flow of the story. It really goes well with the story.

      A big guy yet he reminds me of a little kid. So adorable. And their bromance. I'm looking forward to more bromance (and hopefully not a betrayal)
