My Personal Thoughts

“The World Of The Married” episode 10 was super tense, there were moments I was freaking out afraid of what’ll happen. It has been a while since I’ve been this invested in a drama. I predicted its success early on and when I saw how fast it was growing it became clear to me that this was going to be probably the biggest kdrama of 2020. We’re only done with four months of 2020 but I don’t think this will be an easy feat to top.

I’ve seen “SKY Castle” and its one of my favorite dramas (aside from its ending), “The World Of The Married” is an amazing drama and dare I say even more shocking than “SKY Castle,” the level of crazy for the character is through the roof with this one.

I am happy it’s a massive success and I hope this signals even more change in the way kdramas are written, not every script has to be this intense but its nice to be shocking, watching kdramas for the past 8 years, I became used to a formula and JTBC is really shaking things up in recent years.
