I have to thank KBS Mon-Tues drama The Tale of Nokdu for invigorating my love of K-dramas again. It’s been so long and this drama makes me count the days until Monday and then get sad after Tuesday, it makes me grin like a loon when I watch and then pout because I can’t have another hit right away. Episode 11 brought the young lovers a brief respite with plenty of interludes for romantic interactions – back hugs during work break and even a steamy sleeping together in the same room session that led to one kiss that was the precursor to more but for one little girl barging in. I also enjoy the court intrigue and watching Nokdu get closer to his king daddy and queen mommy all the while trying his darndest to reunite with his adopted family. Sigh, I’m sad so many original K-drama lovers have left drama watching these past few years because they are missing this gem.
