Hello and what is this? We only have 2 more days of this challenge?!! Indeed we do. Today’s question is in fact:

Your top three sisterhoods in dramas

Unlike the abundance of possible answers like yesterday, today’s answer is a lot more difficult. Surprisingly, asian dramas (specifically K-dramas) I’ve noticed don’t create as many sisterhoods as there are bromances. That is really disappointing in my opinion since the ones that do exist are just so sweet, and it would be nice if the female leads had a bigger support network to rely on. Here are the ones that I have been able to remember and note down:

“Hwang Jin Yi” review: Wow, it hit me just as hard as the first time…

I am a guilty victim of the “rewatch whole Kdramas whilst procrastinating” illness. And I did exactly that just two days ago when I should have concentrated on finishing off some homework due the following morning.

In one night too.

Yep, judge me. Go ahead, because I know 100% that what I did was wrong ><

The thing about this illness (and yes, I consider it an illness since I feel that it is severely contagious) is that it does pros and cons (yes, surprisingly there are pros in this!) The cons are quite obvious, but the inconspicuous pros are what I want to focus on slightly.

Pros about revisiting an old drama that you watched years ago (ignoring the whole “I just stayed up all night to finish this marathon” bit) is that you get to discover points and highlights in the drama that you probably never noticed the first time around. With my experience of reliving the world of “Hwang Jin Yi”, I’ve come to realise that there is a good reason why good Kdramas are just good. And so, here is my review that will entail you all of my 2nd experience with “Hwang Jin Yi”!

And yeah, this post possibly may not be spoiler-free; you have been warned!
