It goes downhill very quickly and takes everything and everyone down that comes in its way (including the ratings)

Glory 2, absolutely.  When a show is designed into two parts, the cohesion is always better, unlike those that realised viewers liked it and decided to create part 2. That's when a lot of incomprehensible things happen. I am thinking of Taxi2. Taxi 1 was enjoyable since all evil people were caught. But their methods were not right. So will part 2 be better or a duplicate of the first? I'll probably watch a few before deciding.

This is of great help @Sleepy Owl

 

I have made up my mind. I let my heart guide me. So, I see my favourite actors / actresses and I am sold. 

 

Some of these dramas have a stellar cast. And that gets me excited. Hope they don't disappoint like dramas from 2022 that boasted of an amazing cast but had the most disappointing storyline. 

 

At the moment, my most anticipated drama would be Glory. 

 

I am ready for some

@Sleepy Owl Thank you for the extensive list including the synopsis of each drama! :dorakiss:

Am missing Accounting Firm from the list though - with L oppa and Choi Jin Hyuk. 

 

For me my oppas are not the reason why I watch a drama (well, partially at least), so I didn't vote for one single Park Hyung Sik oppa's drama. The drama descriptions just didn't work for me. :heartbreak:

Thankfully, I was able to vote for Ji Chang Wook oppa's and Joo Won oppa's dramas! :love:

 

Ra Mi Ran is coming out with two dramas this year that I totally want to check out!

 

Queens Uhm Jung Hwa and Kim Sun Ah are starring in dramas this year as well - count me in!

:wow1:

 

Jang Geun Suk is finally coming back to dramaland - the synopsis sounds interesting too.

 

As for season 2s, both The Glory S2 and D.P. S2 are already on my watchlist.

 

As for the drama that I will be tuning in very very soon, it's going to be Netflix's Love to Hate You. The trailer just made me laugh despite the old-school synopsis - I will for sure be tuning into that one.

 

@africandramalover You voted for so few dramas ?!?!? What happened!?!?!?? I was hoping to see you make a new record this year.

2.  Sacred divorce-although the topic doesn't interest me, I do like CSW, as an actor

3.  Island part 2- I'm curious to see where this goes.

4. DP2--DP 1 was very good

*** With the majority of this year’s releases raising the bar high, I look forward to the upcoming K-drama series and (Korean movies) releasing this year where my biases are in. So many dramas are in this year whether you are looking for captivating action or a sweet romance series, you are bound to find something to your taste. Here is a list of all the upcoming Korean dramas I voted: But, sorry for these (2) dramas that I forgot to vote : Queen of Tears & The Worst of Evil.  :weary: :tears:   I can’t wait to see them all.  :kaching1:

 

My Heart is Beating – Taecyeon is one of my biases.

Joseon Lawyer - Woo Do-hwan impressed me with his excellent performance for a dual role in The King Eternal Monarch and I’m  excited to see him back on the small screen after his MS.

The First Responders 2 – I guess the Part two of this series picks up where we left off in part one.

Our Blooming Youth – I’m elated to see PHS’s  handsome face back on the screen.

Arthdal Chronicles S2 - star-studded cast. I’m excited upon hearing the good news of production for the second season of this dramas starring LJK this time. He has shown a wide acting spectrum in various impressive projects.

Ask the Stars - already gaining popularity for the cast. This is one of the highly anticipated K-dramas of this year.

Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938 – one of my favorite shows  is back mainly for LDW and KB.

Black Knight -  the man himself! KWB has proved his versatility as an actor.

Dominant Species – I adore JJH.

Bloodhounds – I like WDH.

Gyeongseong Creature - lead couple chemistry. I’m looking forward to their chemistry in the drama. Also,  one of the highly anticipated K-dramas of this year. Such is its popularity and strength that a second season is also confirmed even before the first season has rolled out. Han So-hee is definitely among the talented and versatile female actresses in her generation.

Moving - this is JIS’s comeback project.

Queen of Tears – OMG – I forgot to vote for this drama. I’m excited to see KSH and his onscreen chemistry with his female partner and their performance as a couple in this drama.

The Worst of Evil – I also forgot to vote this drama…sigh…..I’m excited that JCW will portray a character that will show more of his talent as an actor.

 

The leading cast is definitely one of my main reasons why I’m excitedly waiting for them. So, my favorite and biased

actors have to be in the drama for me to watch it.  :rubchin:

I do agree that when a drama is already supposed to be divided in parts/seasons beforehand the result is better and they even pace the episodes accordingly. In case of second seasons because of popularity, I hardly remember any 2nd season/part getting the same kind of praise as the original one did. 

 

In case of Taxi Driver I am interested to see what are they planning to do. Do we see them continuing the service (since they ended S1 like that with prosecutor joining the team as well) and taking revenge in a much better way, like getting the bad guys caught by the police or prosecutor and providing them the evidences. Or, maybe this is a prequel, or maybe they will still continue to be bad guys hunting the worse guys out there.

That drama wasn't one I was talking about watching - I've only watched 1 Gumiho drama, and I believe it was the first one. Lee Seung Gi, and a so young Shin Min A, that I didn't realize it was her til I just went back and looked.  I might have enjoyed it more if I had a better grasp of what a Gumiho was supposed to be/represent ie; the mythology/folklore behind it.

 

I wouldn't dare to guess on a time traveling Gumiho drama - Every time I think ... Okay this is time-travel kdrama thats not going over the cliff in the last 2 episodes ... I get Tomorrow with You, or Sisyphus The Myth, or yes, by far the worst offender ALICE. 

 

Sorry Chingu, can't help you on this one :lol:
