This has been a rough week, y’all. Just . . . rough.
As the maknae, I can say I have no expectations for this drama one way or the other, but GOODNESS my drama unnis are excited. Come see the new trailer and tell me if you think Hwayugi will live up to their expectations.
Oh man, y’all — Signal was an incredible bit of storytelling. Thank you for choosing that drama for me! Fingers crossed for a season 2, right? Let’s chat about what I loved and why I think it DEFINITELY deserves a second season.
I don’t know that I’m on board with making this a permanent feature, but I couldn’t think of a better way to title this post. Let’s talk about the circus that was Revolutionary Love, shall we?
I always struggled with the story of Superman. Sure, he plays a bumbling reporter by day and only trots out his super powers as needed, but how is either of those personas a match for Lois Lane? Clark Kent needed to step up his game to match her wit and drive, whereas Superman turned her into a silent, dependent victim. This is my own humble opinion after watching the old-school Superman movies one time. But you catch my drift. Either way, they just didn’t fit, and it bugged me.
Healer, though. I appreciated the Superman influences and references, but Jung Hoo and Yeong Shin were more evenly matched, which totally made the series for me. Well, on top of Jung Hoo’s excellent fighting skills and the well-crafted plot. The ONLY thing that drove me nuts was the overly loud BGM (background music.) Let’s talk Healer, shall we?
tvN is capitalizing on the sentimental feelings of the season with this 4-episode drama special, The Most Beautiful Goodbye in the World. Come watch the teaser and see if you’re pulled into the remake of this drama.
We have some new information on Bad Guys 2 (aka Bad Guys: City of Evil)! And a new teaser trailer with a lot of blood and not a lot of information and a dude with creepy eyes that makes me wonder if they’re introducing vampires into this sequel. More after the jump:
HOLD ON A SECOND. See the back of that head right there? It’s the dad from Reply 1988! And he seems to be playing a mobster, maybe. Hmmm. Let’s see what Untouchable is all about, shall we?
Ok, it’s official: Jung Hae In for Batman, please. I like him so much more than any of the current incarnations (sorry, Christian Bale!). His integrity makes him stand out in amazing and thrilling ways. Team Woo Tak forever!!
Well, drama fans, I’m not sure what we have here. From the trailers for Jugglers, we either have a magic act set in an office or the Korean version of The Fantastic Four. Check it out after the jump:
