Personal Preference and Wagaya no Rekishi

These dramas are my most anticipated so far. I've known about Personal Preference for two months now, and Wagaya no Rekishi for a month. Still, as the first one is a comedy/romance genre, it doesn't concern me that much, although I waited to see Lee Min Ho in something new. Yes, yes, I mentioned it earlier, no BOF fan here^^.
Wagaya no Rekishi is more serious that is why I don't compare them. Some people commit this mistake, and are ready to fight to the death for their reasons.
It's useless.
Why? Simply because we don't compare steak with Sacher cake, although both things are food. One is a serious meal, the other one is a dessert.

That is why I don't compare dramas like You're Beautiful with IRIS, I don't argue which one is better, because they DO NOT belong to the same category!
Sate, first thing is to write something on these dramas, ne?

Jeon Jin Ho is a straight guy who pretends to be gay in order to become a roommate to his female friend, Park Kae In. His hobbies include organization and ironing, and he’s known for his stoic poker face. He’s a stickler for cleanliness, but he also has a talent for figuring out women’s feelings. Kae In is very trusting even though she has a habit of being betrayed. However that doesn't stop her from giving people the benefit of doubt and Jin Ho is no different. How will Kae In react when she finds out that her gay roommate is not actually gay at all and that he has fallen for her?(javabeans)

So what can I tell? As for now only this: I hope to laugh watching PP, and I hope to smile watching WnR. It looks like Wagaya... wins my heart hands down, but, don't be hasssty (as Gollum said few times). It's not because of those two, but because I really like this kind of stories. That is why I'm waiting for one more Korean drama called My Sister's March (end of the month). It's political, yet personal. About the youngs entangled in politics.
