I’m telling you it has been such a long time since I’ve been impatiently waiting and looking forward to the next episode!

This show is a breath of fresh air, and honestly loving the humor, although I understand it may not be for everyone! Love it so far 🙂 the first 3 episodes I have seen so far are def worth the watch.


After a plethora of “strong” dramas, I needed something like this to get away from the stressful everyday life.

I started watching in an unpretentious way and I was feeling good about the slightly crazy dynamic between mother and daughter, the absurd scenes, the script without caring much about details and in the end, it was good fun.

Not Others, Episode 3 is now streaming via Viki, with Episode 4 airing later on tonight on Genie TV and ENA, followed by an upload to Viki.
