Her radio program DJ suddenly leaves Korea and Song Geu-Rim loses her job at the radio broadcasting station. Meanwhile, PD Lee Gang comes back to Korea from India. Sometimes he acts insane, but he is generally good at his job. Lee Gang suggests to Song Geu-Rim that if she can cast Ji Soo-Ho as the DJ of their new radio program, she can work as the main writer of their radio program. Ji Soo-Ho is a top actor.

Misty best gila!!! SIqah marathon tengok drama Misty dari episod 1 sampai ep 12. Lepas tu, on track dah.

Siqah dah tengok Radio Romance. Dan for me, drama tu biasa-biasa je. Tengok jugak sampai habis sebab suka dengan hero dan heroin walaupun dah agak apa yang jadi seterusnya.

Currently tengah tengok My Golden Life (jenuhlah nak habiskan 50 eps :D) dan Voice (menarik sebab penyiasatan, hihi )

I love Hwayugi and The Golden Life! The Golden Life taught me about lots of things in life, and one of my favorites dramas in 2017 :>

Done watching I'm not A Robot and That Man Oh Soo! I'm Not A Robot best gila! That Man Oh Soo rasa macam jalan cerita dia banyak 'kosong' yang boleh diisi dengan lebih banyak scene menarik. At first dia macam best, but dah tengah-tengah, dia macam slow, hambar. But still layan sampai habis jugak walaupun boleh agak ending macam mana hahaha.
