Suspicious Partner

If you’re thinking of skipping this show because a 40 episode drama sounds too time consuming, worry no more. Each episode is only 30 minutes long so it’s really like watching a regular 20 hour one. I’ve written 33 reviews so far this year and, in my opinion, as of right now, Suspicious Partner comes in right … Continue reading Suspicious Partner
