^_^ Moonlight Drawn by Clouds is a super cute watch. Not only do the leads (actually the whole cast) have natural acting, the story flow is excellent, and the only bits I skip is the politicking. Not so fun to watch conniving men with wispy beards. This is the new crack, SKK Scandal style.
^_^ Fantastic has had 4 eps, and so far, they’ve been rather zesty. Joo Sang-wook is a hoot as an untalented foot-acting Hallyu star. Let’s enjoy the fun till the angst sets in.
^_^ Jealousy Incarnate is my favourite at the moment. Gong Hyo-jin is sublime, and all the jealousy threads are starting to fall into place, whether it’s of the BGR, frenemy, familial or occupational variety. I’m still enjoying their depiction of cancer, and how perception of its impact on careers can affect one’s decision on treatment. I think it’s a great way to open communication channels on a fear-inducing taboo topic.
^_^ Your Home is My Business is still quirky. I like that there’s not really much of a romantic angle, and though Sangen’ya-san is still an oddball, her co-workers have accepted her rather eccentric ways. She’s still the top agent to beat, and I’m glad that she’s inspiring her colleagues to strive harder, even the lazy bones, Shirasu Mika.
-_- Second to Last Love is one episode from my dropping it. There’s only so much coincidence, repression and moving in circles I can take. And the shiny shiny faces…
>_< Cinderella and the Four Knights is such a waste – besides the constipated 2nd female lead who sucks all life out of her scenes, the plot seems like a hackneyed rehash from a 12-year-old girl. Its closest approximation is Boys Over Flowers, a 2009 adaptation of a shoujo manga, which was first written in 1992… What a waste of Jung Il-woo, and even Ahn Jae-Hyun.
>_< W – Two Worlds is literally that – a fantastic first half done in by a convoluted and somewhat illogical latter half. Urgh.
