    Spot on! I just loved “the Best Hit” frankly that would have been my #1, with the others tied for #2! because I wouldn’t be able to choose! I haven’t seen Radiant Office, or My Sassy Girl, but will now!

    Such a great list! And now I’m realizing just how many shows I need to catch up on LOL. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, Suspicious Partner, and Fight My Way were all huge standouts to me, but Fight My Way has definitely been my favorite drama so far this year!
