Currently watching Master's Sun, Two Weeks and just started Jeon Woo Chi

Master's Sun has a pretty good relationship thing going but Two Weeks has a solid storyline and is definitely great at keeping you on the edge of your seats! Can't wait for both drama's finale

Finished up this drama recently - pretty good series, surprised it didn't win any drama awards when Kagi no Kakatta Heya, a far weaker drama IMHO, won so many the following season.

Anyway, this was definitely quite refreshing!
