No Time? Try A K-Drama Short!

If Real Life Gets In The Way of Your Drama Time? 
Try A K-Drama Short!

I know a lot of us don't have time for the week to week or even the weekend dramas. Real life always gets you down and can interfere with your little time you have for entertainment. Here are some of the short dramas (4 and under episodes) that I've enjoyed in the last couple of years. I call these my "filler" dramas. It wasn't until I'd been watching dramas for a couple of years before I knew they even existed. I was under the impression that dramas were no less than 16 episodes. Imagine my surprise! If you haven't seen these dramas, they come highly recommended: FROM ME!!

Mom's Garden-Replacement Drama for Soo Baek Hyang starts March 17, 2014

Mom's Garden (2014)
With tears in my eyes, I am preparing for the end of what will definitely be my "cracktastic" drama for 2014, Soo Baek Hyang. However, surprisingly I am finding the replacement drama, Mom's Garden to be more and more interesting as time goes on. No, it won't replace the love I have for Soo Baek Hyang but I am definitely adding it to the top of my watch list beginning in April.
