    But why? I prefer them in book format, and remain confident that no TV show visual could possibly top my imagination. :blobtriumph:

    "The World of Otome Games is Tough For Mobs" & "I’m the Evil Lord of an Intergalactic Empire!", just for giggles. :blobpopcorn:

    If it's just for the giggles and shit with no profits and healthy mind ever included in the calculation, no one would ever tops (and expect) Invisible Dragon. Either it would be an avant-garde-like modern motion art of the century or just a top quality shitstorm, no one would knew. Not even the author.

    Life Once Again.
    The only novel I read that I really want to see in a drama version. I have even thought which actor fit for the MC role. It's reality grounded and the fantasy element in it isn't overwhelming to be made into a drama. The problem is that novel have too much chapters(1000+) for Korean novels standard. I'm not sure if it's possible to turn it into a drama script of 16-20 episodes...

    I think Lord of the Mysteries would make a super fun TV show, with each arc as a season.

    I was just thinking as I was reading through The Villainess is a Marionette the prince in the show Irregulars could play Rejeph. This link includes a few pics Harrison Osterfield Didn't Know Sherlock Holmes Before Starring In'The Irregulars'. It Helped. (msn.com) maybe it's the timeframe and cloths?

    Also, I saw an article about Remarried Empress getting a show too! Hope they don't blotch up the babies!

    So many shows I'd love made tho.

    What for? I guess, it would be nice to be snob to the fans of the show and say, "the books are so much better".
