La Casa de Papel + Hwayugi: A Korean Odyssey

La Casa de Papel (literally, "The House of Paper", but apparently Netflix calls it "Money Heist" in English-speaking countries) is an amazing Spanish show. What a great way to practise my Spanish! It's addictive to watch how things sometimes go perfectly according to plan and other times turn into a huge mess.

There are fewer female characters than male ones, but they're all awesome. Tokyo and Nairobi are my faves, but Raquel rocks too.


Hwayugi: A Korean Odyssey is a great k-drama that adapts the legend of the Monkey King, this time as a modern AU. I mentioned other adaptations here.

The main pairing is m/f, but only because they gender-bent Samjang. In the original legend, it would have been m/m, which I already shipped from the anime Saiyuki. ♥
