2017 Top 10

Tea Rex 27 days ago

My personal faves for the year. Graded on uniqueness, rewatchability, characters, plot, music, beauty, endings, and how desperate I was for new episodes/how fast I binged it.

*number 11 is a bonus. It snuck in as mini drama part of a larger, less worthy whole drama

    Japanese Drama - 2017

    Unusual, gripping story-telling with interesting characters and a satisfyingly cathartic ending

    Hilarious. The bromance made this drama. The male leads were stellar. All the cast were fun.

    Korean Drama - 2017

    The story and characters are fantastic. Everything has depth and an unexpectedness to it. The humour is often subtle, but wonderful.

    Korean Drama - 2017

    Sibling love, happy romances, an utter lack of the super crazy makjang that usually destroys these family dramas for me. Great actors playing great characters.

    Korean Drama - 2017

    This drama is extremely mellow. The romance is a slow burn. The way the characters' stories intertwine is lovely.

    Thai Drama - 2017

    It's just cute. No serial killers. No brooding ex. Two people in love with each other, realizing that they are in love while their amused friends watch from the sidelines. Rewatch frequently whenever I need a little light drama snack
