  1. I’ve seen “Tunnel” and “Strong Woman Do Bong-Soon”. I enjoyed them both even though they are complete opposite ends of the drama watching spectrum. Choi Jin-Hyeok and Lee Yoo-Young were AMAZING in “Tunnel”! Lots of twist and turns. I needed a light hearted drama to contrast “Tunnel” so I enjoyed “Strong Woman Do Bong-Soon” even though it too can take some serious turns. Enjoy! I will add the rest that you listed to my watchlist!
