Touch Your Heart sounds kind of familiar and not super interesting but I love both of them so much, I'll watch it.
Legal High, Item and The Fiery Priest sound interesting too.

it seems, well it's almost 10 years ago now so i guess it's time

I'm trying not to have high expectations for Legal High. I'll watch TYH just for the two leads. The Fiery priest sounds interesting.

I'm really excited for Item, Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Kang Woo facing off sounds excellent to me. I'll also check out Big Issue because I absolutely loved Han Ye Seul in 20th Century Boy and Girl and want to support her. Other than that, nothing sounds overly interesting and there are some actors I can't deal with (like Jung Il Woo because of freaking Cha Chi Soo from Flower Boy Ramen Shop) so it looks like it'll be yet another slow month for me dramawise.

(oops at me making a Touch Your Heart post with the wrong date, I obviously didn't realize they changed the premiere date like a month ago)

Ack, I'd almost forgotten about Cha Chi Soo!

Don’t know if my preference has changed, or because the recent ones have been awful, but i’m choosing to ignore all the romcoms. Excited for Item!

looking forward to item, haechi, and trap! atm i’m only watching the crowned clown (so good) and romance is a bonus book (not sure i’ll stick with it). i need more shows to watch.

i watched the long preview for touch my heart and i’m not even sure i’m going to check it out now. :/

Until this weekend, I had no idea that Romance is a Bonus Book premiered already. I was and am still meh about the noona-dongsaeng storyline since that seems to be the "thing" nowadays. I know Lee Jong Suk has done quite a few before it got trendy thanks to Something In the Rain, but...yeah.

I started watching it anyways because LJS is a great actor and has chemistry with basically anyone. It is OK so far, and him in glasses is A+++. I will see if I stick to it though, since I had to drop W because it became so messy. I will say, though, that for Romance is a Bonus Book, they should have included more backstory earlier in the first two episodes because I was kind of confused about their relationship and how close they actually were and why he had no idea what happened to her in the past year (although we find out later he did).

I am quite excited about Trap, Haechi and Item. I am curious of how the Korean version of Legal High be.

trap and item sound good! haechi i'm interested in but i always struggle with period dramas cause they're so long lol

I wish all the romance stories weren't with lawyers! Man, I hope I can ignore those portions enough to enjoy....

The light in your eyes premise sounds like my personal nightmare...

I'm hoping eyespy a bad ass lady in haechi

I am only interested in Touch Your Heart and Item. I know TYR looks so cliche and stuff, but I am here for this not so subtle Goblin spin-off. LOL.

I want to watch Item for Joo Ji Hoon, but we shall see if it I actually get to it.
