I'm still alive guys! Just been away for a while and came back to find all these lovely dramas waiting for me :] Addicted was so good. It was my gateway drug (pun intended) to all these other dramas. Addicted is my favorite still so far. Definitely going to recap that some time along with Like Love. Heard there's been red flags with the government but hope there's more to come. Fingers crossed!
