*sob* What do you mean there’s only two one more weeks left of this drama? Say it isn’t so! Boys, noona is going to miss all of you terribly so before the inevitable rolls around, let me leave each of you with some advice, starting with Ji-hyuk: Whatever you do, please don’t let whoever’s responsible for your current do touch your hair again.
If you had asked me whether I was going to watch Lie to Me when it was airing last year, I would have told you that you couldn’t pay me enough to touch it with the proverbial barge pole. Well, 2012 is looking to be the year where I find my words coming back to laugh in my face. Damn you, Sung Joon. Couldn’t you have picked another drama? Maybe I should consider watching White Christmas instead. Can someone please talk me out of this? (more…)
As some of you may recall, I did not like Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (and that’s putting it mildly.) So when I read that tvN was coming up with yet another flower boy drama — this time with an even more ridiculous name — I wrote it off immediately.
I was prepared to mock it endlessly, especially when I found out that one of the bands in the drama was called Strawberry Fields. If it was a new brand of yoghurt or a new line of air fresheners I’d understand but a rock band? Really? (ETA: I just found out that there’s actually a Korean rock band by this name. So this just goes to show you how much I know.)
So anyway, I was planning to come up with at least 20 different ways to describe the stupidity of this drama.
And then I watched the first episode.
Okay, just pass me the damn crow so that I can get it over and done with. (Spoilers for episodes 1 and 2) (more…)
