The Legend of the Blue Sea home – SBS. Now that we’re done listing TVN’s and MBC’s best K-dramas, it’s time to take a peek at SBS’ offers. This is the second part of SBS’ Best K-drama in 2017. If you haven’t read the first part yet, check this link.
BUT before we head on to the list, here are few notes.
This is a list of dramas aired and ended in 2017. Any drama that began in 2017 but will end in 2018 is not included.
I only listed those dramas I’ve seen fully (from episode 1 to final episode). There are dramas who have raving reviews, but I didn’t finish because one, it’s not for me, and two, it’s boring. Feel free to suggest your favorite drama
I’ll be sharing you my personal ratings and opinion so that you’ll know what to expect. Promise, NO SPOILERS.
The list is in no particular order because how dare I! 🙂
So the must-watch SBS K-dramas of 2017 (Part 2) listing begins here:
While You Were Sleeping 9/10
Episodes: 32 | Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Thriller | Release Date: September 27 – November 16, 2017
“Hong-Joo (Bae Suzy) is haunted by seeing the future deaths of others in her dreams. What’s worse is that she does not know when the deaths will happen, but she tries to stop her dreams from becoming reality. Meanwhile, Jae-Chan (Lee Jong-Suk) is a rookie prosecutor. Jae-Chan and his younger brother move to a new house and they become neighbors with Hong-Joo. Jae-Chan and Hong-Joo later work together to solve other cases.” – Asianwiki, While You Were Sleeping
Dee Say: I’m hesitating in watching this drama at first. However, a lot of my friends keep on convincing me to give this drama a shot and I’m glad I gave in. The hype it has is worth it. Though personally, I’ve seen a lot better storylines than this drama. But I just can’t deny the fact that Jong Suk’s and Suzy’s chemistry will win everyone’s heart.
Suspicious Partner 8/10
Episodes: 40/20 | Genre: Romance, Crime| Release Date: May 10 – July 13, 2017
“About Noh Ji-Wook (Ji Chang-Wook), a prosecutor and Eun Bong-hee (Nam Ji-Hyun), a prosecutor trainee and how they work together on a mysterious case involving a sly psychopath murderer.” – Wikipedia, Suspicious Partner
Dee Say: I was thinking if am I going to include this drama on my list. But eventually decided to do so. The synopsis of this drama is so good that I never hesitated to watch this while it is still airing in South Korea. In my opinion, they had a good start. But as the story progress, I felt lost and confused with the story. But the chemistry of Ji Chang Wook and Nam Ji Hyun is too perfect that the fans of this drama hope they’ll end up together in real life. In this drama, actor Dong Ha (the antagonist/Jung Hyun-Soo) really shined. He is too good that I hope one day he’ll be a lead in his own drama.
My Sassy Girl 7.5/10
Episodes: 32 | Genre: Sageuk, Romance, Comedy | Release Date: May 29 – July 18, 2017
Dee Say: I have high expectations in this drama since it has a good intention of reliving the famous movie My Sassy Girl. Though this is not a perfect drama and has a share of negative opinions I still enjoyed watching every single episode. A well-rounded series that has a great balance of romance, action, drama, and comedy.
Legend of the Blue Sea 10/10
Episodes: 20 + 1 Special | Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Comedy | Release Date: November 16, 2016 – January 25, 2017
“The television series centers on the love story of Heo Joon-jae (Lee Min-ho), the son of a rich businessman who becomes a handsome and clever con-man after his parents’ divorce, and a mermaid named Shim Cheong (Jun Ji-hyun). Focusing on rebirth, fate, and unrequited love, their tale is juxtaposed with the parallel story of their Joseon era incarnations, town head Kim Dam-ryeong and the mermaid Se-hwa.” – Wikipedia, Legend Of The Blue Sea
Dee Say: You are a caveman if you haven’t seen this yet! Just like Goblin and Weightlifting Fair Kim Bok Joo, THIS DRAMA IS MUST. I’ve been wanting to visit Spain because of this drama, and this year, I’ll make that happen.
