The Time That I Love You 7000 Days (Korean)

Synopsis from DramaFever: Jang Ha Na (Ha Ji Won) and Choi Won (Lee Jin Wook) are incredibly close platonic friends: throughout 20 years, they’ve braved it all through thick and thin. As Ha Na’s 30th birthday approaches, Won extols the virtues of aging as a man—like a wine—while explaining that women are like grapes that shrivel into raisins. Determined to prove him wrong, Ha Na strikes a bet on which of the two will marry before turning 35. Based on Taiwan’s hit In Time With You, can these two friends make the ultimate leap?

Constellation Women Series — Pisces Woman (Taiwanese)

Synopsis from Viki: A Pisces woman is said to be quiet, gentle and sensitive to other’s feelings. But if there is something that she wants, she is unstoppable. Shuang Shuang (Mini Tsai), an aspiring cartoonist, has been dating Sheng Xiong (Kun Da), a star baseball player, for many years. Wanting to make her big move, Shuang Shuang holds up a sign during an important game asking Sheng Xiong to marry her, but the sign distracts Sheng Xiong, causing his team to lose the game. Sheng Xiong rejects her marriage proposal because of his fear of commitment, and the heartbroken Shuang Shuang moves to Hua Lian village with her sister, Miao Miao (Zai Zai Lin). Shuang Shuang opens up a comic book store there and restarts her life. She meets Lu Yi (Bryant Chang), who is Miao Miao’s senior from college and also happens to be the village chief. Will the romantic and chivalrous Lu Yi help Shuang Shuang forget her past heartbreak, or will Sheng Xiong let her go that easily?

Available on Viki.

 

I just finished up another series (Mask), so I’m on the lookout for another one to keep me busy. There are two shows I am eyeing. I’m a big fan of Lee Joon Ki and vampire dramas, so The Scholar Who Walks the Night is on my watch list. It’s apparently doing fairly well in South Korea (Note: some spoilers). I’m also interested in the “astrology concept” of the Constellation Women Series. There are already two other signs released (Leo and Aries) as a drama this year. I think it’s a cute concept, whether or not you like astrology. If they are doing all the signs, I can’t wait to see my own in action (Virgo)!

What drama looks interesting to you?
