The Heavenly Idol: First impression

I am always looking for something new to watch and while I am also watching Kokdu: the season of deity and am on last episode of Love to hate you, I thought why not add this drama as well. After all, if nothing I’ll still get to look at Kim Min gue ๐Ÿ˜›

The Heavenly Idol Trailer

My thoughts while watching first 3 episodes of The Heavenly idol

The start was okayish. I wasn’t sure if I could already get excited about the story. Also, I was wondering what’s with the name Pontifex Lembrary and Redlin. However, as the story progresses it made sense. The switching of realms and all of it.

However, the other thing that I was wondering was why is he not acting “wise”. After all he is the high priest and has lived for over 100 years.

The entry of female lead is also not grand or anything and her background story is basic. Similar to a lot of other dramas that we have watched.

However, the idol and fan connect she has with Woo Yeon Woo looks real.

When we see Lembrary talking to Woo Yeon Woo or even his relationship with other band members or the Seon Woo Sil, we see a very rude, selfish, self-obsessed boy however his encounter with female lead is very different. He did save her.

We haven’t seen much of the evil one yet but I believe his role will build up in coming episodes.

The story is fast paced, a lot of things are happening fast and story looks fun so far. As there are only 12 episodes I am sure they won’t add anything unnecessary or drag the story.

Over all, it looks like a good drama. I am going to continue watching it.

Kokdu: Season of deity – First impression

Recently, I had slow down my KDrama viewing. Why? Well, don’t have enough time. However, last month I did not start many new Kdramas. The only Kdramas I am watching right now are Crash course in romance, The interest of love and Kokdu: Season of deity.

I decided to give Kokdu: Season of deity a go because it looked funny.

Unlock my boss – an underrated gem

The day I saw Chae Jong Hyeop was acting in a new drama I decided to watch it even without knowing what was it about. Why? Because I can be like that sometimes ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway, I am glad that I decided to watch it, because I loved it.

Crash course in romance – First impression

I did not start many weekly Kdramas in 2023 and since Alchemy of souls and Unlock my boss ended last week, I didn’t particularly have anything new to watch this weekend. So, I clicked on Crash course in romance. Why? Well, because I am a bigtime Hospital playlist fan and I know Jung Kyung Ho is a great actor.

Chocolate – a beautiful healing KDrama

Chocolate is the very first KDrama I have finished in 2023. I knew that it existed and I had seen it in my recommendations too many times but never really clicked on it. I thought I had not seen the main leads anywhere else and I already have a long list of tbw dramas of the actors I already like. Anyway, I didn’t pay attention that I had seen the actor in Kiss sixth sense (another KDrama I binge watched).
