The first part was dedicated to korean dramas but now I thought that I should write a post for japanese dramas as well. After that post I decided to watch My Daughter Seo-young, Rascal Sons and Night King, but right now I’m currently watching only My Daughter Seo-young, a fantastic drama. Maybe I will try again Night King someday, but for me Rascal Sons is a big no.
