Currently Watching: Master's Sun, Good Doctor, Cool Kiz, WGM

Don't we all wish we had more time in the day to get things done? And by "get things done," I mean watch all the dramas, movies, and variety shows we can get our greedy little hands on while keeping on top of things both at home and at work? As it is, I'm watching my shows on my phone while riding the train to and from work. I'm watching my shows before going to bed. Sometimes, I watch my shows at work. And on weekends, I have drama marathons. But my list of shows to watch is never-ending and, matter of fact, it just keeps on getting longer.

With a handful of my shows over and done with (having had to say goodbye to I Hear Your Voice, Monstar, Fabulous Boys, and You're the Best Lee Soon-shin), I've started on several new dramas and I'm still hooked on a handful of ongoing varieties. My current watch-list looks like this:

1. Master's Sun - As a handful of dramas written by the Hong sisters have been my crack in previous years, this new horror/romcom penned by the famous writing siblings is my crack for this season. I'm just eating it all up and it is awesome. Sufficiently scary and satisfyingly heartwarming, this is a formula I never thought would've worked, but it does. Also, So Ji-sub is a hottie.

2. Good Doctor - I'm kind of behind on this drama, having only seen up to the 4th episode, but I am determined to catch up. Joo-won is awesome, as is expected of him, and I've always had a soft spot for Moon Chae-won. So far, the drama is living up to expectations.

3. Running Man - Admittedly, I'm not all caught up with this show. I've seen a lot of its episodes but not each and every one of them. The last one I saw was the one with the couple race that featured an eclectic handful of celebrity guests like Sayuri, John Park, Jo Jung-chi, and Jung-in. Last week had long-running boyband Shinhwa on the show and I can't wait to see that episode. The Chuseok special that will feature 14 idols is coming up. Big Bang's Seungri, G-Dragon, and Daesung will also be featured in an upcoming episode - ohmygod.

4. We Got Married (Taemin-Naeun Couple) - I can't even handle how precious these two are. They are both adorable and are just as perfect together. It helps that Naeun's a lot shy, so there's more to look forward to in the coming months. I mean, I'm at a point where a quick hug from them results in screams and a lot of OMG's from my end, so you know I'm feeling them.

5. Cool Kiz on the Block (Badminton) - Who would've thought a game of badminton could make me fist pump so hard? When a game is exciting, a heart attack is not a far-fetched occurrence. I mean, the number of deuces in Kang Ho-dong and John Park's game last week left me on the brink of insanity. I was watching with bated breath and so much pent-up energy. And then the episode ends and it leaves you thinking... "That was just badminton." So I guess kudos to the show's editors. They make badminton look badass. So do the hot men on the show.

6. WIN: Who is Next? - This reality show by YGE and Mnet is only on its second episode but the stakes are high and the competition is fierce, so I'm stuck to it like glue. It also helps that the backstories of the trainees makes you care about them and how they fare on the show.

Whew. That's a lot of shows. And if I had more time, there would be a lot more. A whole lot more. I mean, I have yet to see The Gu Family Book, Goddess of Fire Jung-yi, and Two Weeks. And I have a lot of backtracking to do with 1 Night 2 Days and Master Chef Korea Celebrity Edition, seriously. And then you have the shows from years ago that I have yet to see. On my list is He Who Can't Marry. Aigoo.
