Obsessed: Dramas June 2022

It is that time of the month where I have to talk about the Dramas that I am completely OBSESSED with! So let’s get started.

1. Mr. Unlucky Has No Choice but to Kiss! (Viki)

Fukuhara Kota is a bumbling college student who is plagued by terrible luck. Although he never gets down about it, you can bet if something could possibly go wrong when he’s around, it almost certainly will! One day, he is about to walk in front of a car and end up in a traffic accident when he is saved by a fellow college student named Naoya Shinomiya. The latter is Kota’s polar opposite: His “problem” is that he is “cursed” with endless good fortune.

Kota is grateful for Naoya’s assistance, and tries to ask his new acquaintance to be his friend – but phrases his request badly and accidentally leads Naoya to believe he is asking for them to become lovers. The “lucky” Naoya surprisingly agrees and the duo embarks on an unorthodox relationship. Will Kota’s chaos bring a taste for the unknown into Naoya’s life? And will romance bring spell the end for Kota’s bad luck?

“Mr. Unlucky Has No Choice but to Kiss!” is a 2022 Japanese drama series that was based on a manga series of the same name and directed by Yoshino Mamoru.

2. The Brightest Star in the Sky (Viki)

A music-loving young woman named Yang Zhen Zhen lands what she thinks hopes be her dream job at Star Entertainment, one of China’s top talent agencies.

Her first assignment could not be more daunting, however, as she becomes the personal assistant of Zheng Bo Xu – a wildly popular but notoriously demanding Chinese pop star who once auditioned with her.

Zheng Bo Xu often berates Star Entertainment staff and criticizes his assistants in public. But Yang Zhen Zhen’s talents and charms eventually win him over.

Eventually, the duo form a powerful bond: She helps smooth out some of the pop star’s rough edges while working with superstar Zheng Bo Xu helps Yang Zhen Zhen transform into an accomplished manger. Along the way, the pair also begins to develop feelings for one another…

But things get complicated for both parties when the agency’s co-owner champions an aspiring young singer named Yu Zi Rui. This rising star threatens to become the next big thing at Star Entertainment – eclipsing even Zheng Bo Xu.

And when the young musicians’ and manager’s paths cross with a nefarious international crime gang, things get decidedly tense for everyone involved.

Who will become the brightest star in the Chinese pop world? Will superstar Zheng Bo Xu fall for Yang Zhen Zhen? And will they stay safe from the clutches of the malevolent crime lords?

3. At A Distance, Spring is Green (Viki)

The handsome son of a wealthy family, Yeo Joon had what most people could only dream of having. A first-year economics student at a prestigious university, Yeo Joon seems to be perfectly at ease, living up to everyone’s expectations of him. But what his charming exterior portrays is far different from what he keeps hidden on the inside. Hurting beyond belief, what Yeo Joon needed more than anything is a friend. Unfortunately, finding a true friend is a lot easier said than done.

Assigned to work together on a class project, Yeo Joon inexplicably finds himself drawn to his partner, Nam Soo Hyun. A third-year student in the same program, Soo Hyun is a straight A student who has no time for spoiled little rich kids. Despite their rocky beginning, Yeo Joon and Soo Hyun eventually begin to accept each other for who they are, and very slowly, a bond of friendship begins to grow between them. Polar opposites in every way, Yeo Joon and Soo Hyun have little in common but their friendship is real, providing them each the strength they need to take on the challenges they both face in life.

But their friendship is put to the test when Kim So Bin enters the scene. Will Yeo Joo and Soo Hyun’s unlikely friendship crumble when love begins to bloom?

Adapted from the webtoon of the same name by Ji Nyoong, “At a Distance, Spring is Green” is a Viki Original 2021 slice of life drama directed by Kim Jung Hyun.

To be honest, At a Distance, Spring is Green made me feel so many emotions. This would have to be the one I enjoyed the most BUT I think because I was able to watch it all in one go, and for me personally it was super emotional. I was upset, frustrated, sad and every emotion possible. I would say go into this one with an open mind and a tissue box. Mr. Unlucky has No Choice but to Kiss, it was also really good, more comedic and but also had some sad points along with The Brightest Star in the Sky.
