Korean Dramas - Summer 2017

This is a list of miniseries; dramas over 50 episodes and webdramas have been excluded. I also chose to ignore the split in episodes recently done by some broadcasting stations. Episode counts will be left at the original hour long total for each day. Lastly, if there is a question mark (?) next to a start date, it is a date that I guessed based on previous dramas’ end dates and is subject to change. Happy watching~

My Secret Romance - Episode 7 Spoilers

“You planned this from the start, didn’t you? You wanted to get back at me for playing dumb… That’s why you were nagging me. Fine, I remember everything. I was lying. I remember the resort, the wine, what we did on the beach! I remember it all.”

ocn-mn  asked:

You said something about how Keith freezes up when hugged my other people but not when hugged by Shiro. I remember the iconic hug scene with Keith and Shiro. But when does he freeze up when hugged by others? The episode with Hunk?

Oh well there are a couple times when someone grabs him and he tenses up. Keith tells the Arusion he “doesn’t usually hug strangers” and that much is clear when you see his initial response to a lot of physical contact. So you get things like:

As opposed to:

I think Keith being so calm and touchy feely around Shiro also has a lot to do with the fact that that not only are they closer, but Shiro understands and adheres to his boundaries. In every other hug, the other person just grabs Keith and he doesn’t really get any say in it. He also looks startled at first before he can kinda ease into it. With Shiro, they both reach out and walk into the hug together, so it’s the one time when Keith really gets any choice in the matter. I’ve talked about it more here if you’re interested 

I want to know what the fuck prosecutors in south Korea did in 2015/2016 that their profession is being dragged through the dirt in almost every k-drama of 2017
