Which hot new Korean drama will get us through the summer? Judy and Teresa watched four new summer dramas!

1:15 - "Lawless Lawyer" (무법변호사) is a TVN drama starring Lee JoonGi and Seo YeJi. Judy was excited by the action scenes and Teresa loves the unfolding of the tragic backstories of the main characters. The two leads also have incredible chemistry and we vow to continue watching this drama.

13:13 - "The Undateables" (훈남정음) is a SBS drama that stars Nam GoongMin and Hwang JungEum. Unfortunately, we found this drama weirdly mean-spirited in making fun of suicide and people who don't fit into certain beauty standards.

29:24 - "About Time" (어바웃타임) is another TVN production, starring Lee SungKyung and Lee SangYoon. The portrayal of anxiety disorders was accurate, but that's about all it had going for it. Judy disliked the male lead immensely. Teresa is annoyed by the contrived use of fate. PSA: Everyone should take a CPR class.

48:05 - "What's Wrong With Secretary Kim?" (김비서가 왜 그럴까) is also from TVN and stars Park MinYoung and Park SeoJoon. Is Judy biased because of her love for Park SeoJoon or is the drama just doing a good job with his narcissistic but lovable character? Teresa loves Secretary Kim's sassy confidence and competence. Also her ponytail is to die for.

Is the cat meow a Korean drama trope that Judy just doesn't know about? Tell us! Please send any questions, comments or suggestions on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@kdramamyeyesout) or e-mail us (kdramamyeyesout(at)gmail.com).
