I confess that this K-drama completely was not on my radar, pre-production or even a few weeks after it aired. But the word-of-mouth is impossible to ignore and now MBC Wed-Thurs drama Extraordinary You is a certified cult hit in both Korea and streaming in China. It’s a high school drama and romance with a twist – the female lead finds out she’s actually a side character in a manhwa titled Secret and wants to live her life not according to the panels. It’s like a sweet and cute version of W: Two Worlds. The cast are all a bunch of fresh faces with leads Kim Hye Yoon and Ro Woon along with Lee Jae Wook and Lee Na Eun. It’s been eons since there was a good high school crack drama, and some of the best ones remain classics like Boys Before Flowers and Dream High. I’m going to start watching soon and will report back on whether it satisfies my manga loving cravings.
