The best thing about writing a post focused solely on all of the music and dramas that are soon to be released is that there is just SO MUCH to write about, especially this time of year. It seems like groups are constantly promoting new material and the dramas… Oh! The dramas! There are so many that have me squealing like the fangirl I am and they haven’t even started airing yet!
Take 7 First Kisses, for example. The first teaser for this upcoming web-drama was released just yesterday and already I’m squealing myself silly! I just can’t help myself! I mean when you’ve got a cast that includes Lee Joon Ki, Ji Chang Wook, Lee Jong Suk, Lee Min Ho, Park Hae Jin, EXO’s Kai, and 2PM’s Taecyeon, how can you do anything but squeal? I mean really! This drama doesn’t start airing until mid-December but I’m already suffering a severe case of 7 Lead Syndrome.
There’s no way I’m going to be able to watch this drama without making an absolute fool out of myself but you know what? I’m perfectly okay with that! I may just have to apologize to my family afterwards. Aside from being overly excited about the seven gorgeous guys starring in Lotte’s new web-drama, I’m also very excited that Lee Cho Hee will be playing the lucky leading lady. I thought she was absolutely adorable in Lucky Romance and I’m happy to see that she’s moved from BFF status to leading lady. She seems to have a knack for pulling off the sweet innocence that this role will require, which makes me think it’s going to be a lot of fun, watching her reactions as these seven gorgeous men show up to sweep her off her feet. (Oh! I’m getting giddy just thinking about it!)
As excited as I am about 7 First Kisses, I’m also pretty exited about the upcoming, idol-filled sageuk, Hwarang. The second teaser for this upcoming drama was recently released and oh my goodness! I can’t watch it without squealing myself silly! There’s just so much to love in this second teaser, I don’t even know where to start!
The fact that this drama looks like the ancient equivalent of a modern high school drama makes me want to fall over laughing. The school high jinks, the brawls, the competition between students, the headmaster trying to keep these unruly boys in check, the single girl thrown into this world of crazy, the token shower scene… (Yeah, don’t even ask me how that one works in a drama that’s supposed to be set during the Kingdom of Silla but apparently it does!) It all makes this drama seems like it’s going to be a whole lot of fun and honestly, I hope it is. After watching too many depressing sageuks lately, it would be really nice if we could have one that was a bit lighter on the political drama and more focused on the silly shenanigans of a bunch of flowering knights. Though I suppose now that I’ve said that, I do have to admit there needs to be some sort of plot to drive this drama so maybe I’ll just hope for a good balance between the two. Of course the fangirl in me is very excited to see BTS’ V in this drama, as well as ZE:A’s Hyungsik and SHINee’s Minho. I’ve actually been waiting impatiently (since May) for Minho’s sageuk to start airing so now that it’s almost time, I’m finding it very hard to contain my excitement. Honestly, December 19 can’t get here soon enough! (And yes, that is my inner fangirl talking. She’s hopeless, what can I say?)
I’m still very much excited about Gong Yoo new drama, Goblin, which starts airing in just a few days! WOOHOO! But I’ve already squealed so much over this drama I feel like I should probably try to hold back a bit and focus on other things.
Of course that doesn’t mean I can’t internally squeal as I watch this trailer! hehehe
Dramas aside, there are a few K-Pop comebacks I’m looking forward to in the coming weeks. Pentagon has just started teasing for a second mini-album, Five Senses, which is scheduled to drop December 7. Until then, we have a promising schedule of teasing that’s sure to make jaws drop and hearts skip beats…
Yes, thanks for that Yeo One. I didn’t really need to breathe today anyway…
Though this is the only individual teaser photo out at the moment, the others are coming and I’m sure they’ll all be a stupidly beautiful as this one. In the meantime, the group has released a few group photos and a full schedule of their teasing so you can plan your death accordingly. (Aren’t they sweet?)
SEVENTEEN is also in full-on teaser mode as their third mini-album, Going Seventeen, is scheduled to drop December 5. I’m pretty sure these punks are dead-set on killing us all, as these stupid photos they’ve released are just too pretty for words!
All I can say is, Vernon needs to go away right now and he can take Wonwoo and DK with him!
There’s really so much to squeal over at the moment, it’s almost hard to keep track of it all! Still, a zombie fangirl does what she can to keep up, even if it means dying a thousand times over in the process. (Good thing zombies are already dead!) As excited as I am about these comebacks and upcoming dramas, it’s never as much fun to squeal alone as it is to squeal with friends. That’s why I need you to tell me which comebacks and/or dramas you’re most excited about, in the comments below!
