Our Thoughts:

Happy Monday, K-drama viewers! Another week rolls round and another week of dramas getting closer to their respective ends. This is always an interesting time of year, with the hot weather drawing more people outside and shows airing now doing so during the “off-season” of TV.

Despite that, there have been some new shows starting, with Cleaning Up debuting on JTBC and iQiyi…but only in Taiwan for some reason. There’s also Eve that’s just started and you can check out our recent recaps for that one but it does look like it could be a real diamond in the rough.

Our Blues continues to rock its anthological format, with the different characters all staring to work together now, which is nice to see. In fact, Sunday’s episode jumped to 12.5% on the ratings, which is great news for fans of this series.

All in all though, May has been a very good month for K-Drama, with My Liberation Notes closing out nicely. Will June be able to top this? We’ll have to wait to find out!
