|but wait! Here is one! A gif, a gif!|
... until they royally messed it up.
How could you, Dramagods!!!! *shakes fists in anger*
I think it started to fray at the edges somewhere around episode 8 and became completely undone at light speed thereafter. It's like I've seen two dramas in one: the first was brilliant and took my breath away and the second was simply booooooring. Sure, sure, there were good moments in the second part, too. But what makes me sad and angry at the same time is what this drama could have been - and what I was expecting it would be, after the first few episodes. My bad? Maybe. You cannot be disappointed if you do not have expectations - but you do have expectations when you care about something. It's a vicious circle.
|I may be a bit angry about this drama, but I do love this man and his tradition to watch the last episode with his fans. Awwwww...|
Seriously, show??! And this is your lead character? I almost wish you would have given us amnesia. I would have preferred the universal KDrama reboot button to this mess. I can take an anti-hero or a deeply flawed hero; but not somebody I would steer clear of in real life for complete lack of interest and dislike. Even when he looks like Park Shi-hoo.
|oh look! Another gif! It's a kiss!!!!! Though a very mediocre one :(|
side-kick character we've seen so many times and even disappeared completely for one or more episodes. And the rest (Secretary Moon, Ah-jung, Han Se-jin the sister or Seo Ho-min the brother, both mainly there to do product placement) may be forgotten this instance with no regret.
The only character I liked from beginning to end was Cha Il-nam. Not only was he consistent in his motivations, he also showed the right kind of growth and remorse I've come to expect from KDrama characters. The interactions between him and his son were beautiful KDrama moments: wonderfully acted and written. If this drama had been mainly about mending family ties, and not about marrying up and making a mess of it, it could have been truly good.
|Bravo, Park Shi-hoo - and I still love you, of course.|
There is hope! KDrama: you've been good and you will be good again! 화이팅!
