Jung Jae Young, Yang Se Jong, Kim Jung Eun, and Seo Eun Soo
I'm on episode 4 of 16.

2. Stranger/Secret Forest

This drama will finish airing on July 30th.
Synopsis:
"A brain surgery during childhood caused prosecutor Hwang Shi Mok to lack emotion, even though he is rational. Cold and lonely, he's one of the only prosecutors not involved in corruption.

Main Cast:
Jo Seung Woo and Bae Doo Na
I'm on episode 2 of 16.
My Input:
It reminds me of the drama Dr. Frost and I loved that drama! You can watch this drama on DramaFever.

3. Suspicious Partner/Love In Trouble

This drama will finish airing on July 13th.
Synopsis:
"Noh Ji Wook is a unique prosecutor. He is handsome, hard-headed and intelligent who strives hard to be successful. He is the perfect example of what a prosecutor should be. Later, he becomes a lawyer.
Eun Bong Hee is a prosecutor trainee. Once a former taekwondo instructor, she trained to become a lawyer. She is confident and strong, but naive. She is assigned to work under Ji Wook.
They work together on a mysterious case involving a sly psychopath murderer. As they're working as a team, they develop affection between them."
Main Cast:
Ji Chang Wook, Nam Ji Hyun, Choi Tae Hyun, and Nara
I'm on episode 28 of 40.
My Input:
The way the episodes are formatted is weird. There are four episodes a week, each episode is 30 minutes long. So it's basically the equivalent of 2 full episodes. So they took a 20 episode drama and made it a 40 episode one.
Other than that I love this drama and I love Ji Chang Wook!

This drama is formatted the same way as Suspicious Partner.
Honestly the drama started out and I thought I was gonna drop it but oh my lord am I glad I stayed with it, it's gotten so good!

5. Circle: Two Worlds Connected

This drama finished airing this week.
Synopsis:
"Taking place in both the present year 2017 and in the year 2037, when people believe that their future depends on humans controlling and regulating their emotions, this drama is a sci-fi mystery. When alien visitors arrive on Earth, humans learn new skills from them and take advantage of them; what ensues is a story of alliance, resistance, and love.
Each episode will contain two shorter stories, the first part set in 2017 and called “Beta Project,” with the second set in 2037 and called “Grand New World.”"
Main Cast:
Yeo Jin Goo, Kim Kang Woo, Gong Seung Yeon, Lee Gi Kwang, Ahn Woo Yeon, and Jung In Sun
I'm on episode 8 of 12.
My Input:
Each episode is divided into two parts. Part One is in 2017 and is usually 30 minutes long, after the climax of the first 30 minutes you travel to Part Two in 2037 which is also usually 30 minutes long. This makes each episode an hour long usually.
This drama is gold! I recommend it to anyone who's watched and liked Stranger Things. I think the two are a bit similiar but not entirely. It also reminds me a bit of W but only because of the two different time zones!

Main Cast:

I'm on episode 32 of 40.
My Input:
Again this drama is formatted exactly like I mentioned with Suspicious Partner.

Again to be honest I started out with high expections of this drama however I was let down. It's not horrible but it's just not for me. I do plan on finishing it though. I like the second-lead couple way better than the main couple. They just have more chemistry!

The 30 minute format is to help with revenue now that China isn't allowing kdrama shows to be viewed there. I'm watching a few you are but I am.also watching Father is Strange. I think it's on episode 32 or 34 now, out of 50. It's a big soap opera.

I am currently watching the best hit/hit the top and I am loving it. They have two 30 minute episodes for both days and it is not nearly enough. I am also watching bride of the water god. I don't start a drama without expectations because I feel like I won't enjoy the drama as much but I am for sure loving Nam Joo Hyuk. I am waiting for criminal minds to start though. I just caught up with season 12 of the American version finally and looking forward to the Korean version.
