The first one that Ryujin mentioned was tvN‘s Mine. It follows the story of strong, independent women who are trying to find themselves in the midst of a complicated elite society. Actress Lee Bo Young plays the role of Seo Hi Soo, a former actress and currently the first daughter-in-law of a chaebol family.

It immediately grabbed Ryujin’s attention and kept her hooked until the end.
What drama am I watching? I watched all of ‘Mine.’

Ryujin only had praise for the series, revealing that she couldn’t help but re-watch it numerous times despite her habit of only viewing a show once.
I watched [The Queen’s Gambit] and I’m watching it for the third time. I don’t normally watch things again.
