If there is a drama you NEED to watch, it is Cheese in the Trap. I have already done a 4 episode test* with it, but I have to just do a quick post to implore you to watch it. It’s a fascinating study in how good it is when writing is done really well.
It does have some basic drama tropes (you name it, they touched upon it), but I think the absolute best part is the triangle of Seol – Yoo Jung – In Ho. It is both complex in what they don’t tell each other and simple when they do. It’s all different levels of survival and growth all connected with each other.
It’s tragic and altogether lovely.
Watch Cheese in the Trap on DRAMAFEVER.
ALSO, Yoo Jung and In Ho used to be a bromance and here’s a video to relive that!

*4 episode test – An unofficial test that is given to Korean dramas in the dramaverse. First taught to me by India of DramaDebussie.com, it is basically a trial watch of a drama. If after 4 episodes, it does not progress well, you drop it without any conscience.
