It is hard to write a WTF (Worried & Ticked off Fangirls) post when all of us are going through a drama drought, but we did our best with what we have to work with…….which wasn’t much. Come join The Fangirls as we lament the lack of cracktastic drama and those moments that just made us go “meh”.
KMUSE: Before we start in on the WTF moments regarding various shows, let’s discuss the lack of drama in our lives. I know that I am not the only one of The Fangirls that is going through a drama drought. I am down to only 4 airing dramas. FOUR! You have to understand that there are times I am watching close to 20 airing dramas at a time, so this is a huge disaster for me. And even those four shows I am viewing, I am only watching to have something to watch. None of them are amazing. Whatever happened to there being so many shows I had trouble choosing what to watch on any given night?
CLKYTTA: I am in the same boat. I am only watching 3 dramas right now. The sad thing is that most of the dramas I’m watching I’m not in love with, they are just the best of the barren crop out there. So I’m actually going back to some old favorites that I know I will love even more the second time around.
DRAMA GEEK: Guys, I’ve been stalking Hulu for new American shows to start watching. It is BAD! Not that I don’t have a decent list of domestic shows that I currently watch, but because of multiple seasons, I’ve had the same shows for the last year or two. I can’t even say I’m actively watching any certain foreign drama right now. There are 2 that I’m still kind of watching to see if I’m going to continue, but neither of them have the “it” factor. All I can say is that the next batch of dramas better have some gems or I’m going to be super sad.
Kdrama Jen: I am watching only a few, but it is really working well for me right now because I am super busy with reality these days, so I am finding I can keep up with my shows right now.
Mrs Cop 2
KMUSE: I always have so many problems with crime dramas using the trope that it is better to not catch a serial killer because it would be embarrassing to the cops that didn’t catch on that there were more victims. WHAT THE FUDGE? It just makes me worry about the whole Kdrama Korean culture that this is a common theme and not a one off.
And lets not even try to understand how threatening to shoot someone who is trying to commit suicide is a valid threat. That is probably one of the most stupid things I have seen in a drama for a while. However, Kim Bum is crazy, psychotic, and hot so I shall continue.
Descendants of the Sun
KMUSE: I am trying so hard to get as hooked as everyone else is, but it just isn’t happening. My need for a solid plot, not just a bunch of pretty, strikes again. It isn’t that I hate the show, but if I have to watch Song Joong Ki do another awesome confession and our leading lady turn him down AGAIN, I will scream. By the fourth time, I am not buying them as a fated love anymore.
CLKYTTA: I’m toughing through this one. I may not make it all the way, but I’m trying. I get distracted and bored and then Song Joong Ki does something that makes my heart flutter and brings a smile to my face and I think I can make it just for him. I’m rooting for our secondary couple more than the main couple.
DRAMA GEEK: I’m chiming in on this one only because it’s such a GINORMOUS success in Korea. I’ve made it to episode 4, and I’ve fallen asleep 3 times trying to finish the episode. But I do have an obsession with watching all the clips and GIFS that people are posting online. It’s like I get to enjoy the cute/sexy, but don’t have to be bored for 45 minutes to get to it.
Kdrama Jen: I love this show. Yeah, I know the leading lady still kind of seems like she is playing her blind character from That Winter, The Wind Blows, and it is frustrating and unbelievable that anyone could turn down Song Joong Ki. I apparently don’t share Amber’s need for a solid plot. I am just enjoying the pretty. I also feel a stirring of patriotism with each episode. That’s probably odd since I am not Korean, but I can totally see why this show is appealing to a wide range of viewers in Korea.
Goodbye Mr Black
KMUSE: Out of all the shows I am watching, this one still has the most potential. But after episode 4 I am starting to worry. People just disappear way to easily for years at a time. Also, they are starting to digress away from the Count of Monte Cristo theme which makes me less than thrilled. I will continue watching, but I am concerned that the plot might fizzle out on me.
Kdrama Jen: I am watching this one too. I am enjoying it, and I hope we get some good revenge scenes soon. My biggest WTF moment of the week, though, was the time hop forward. It felt a little too abrupt. I like the premise, the spunky heroine, and the action scenes. I have high hopes!
Kdrama Jen: This T-Drama is pretty much like every other Aaron Yan drama I have seen. He is the prickly CEO who does his best to make life miserable for the perky office worker. Also, just like every Aaron Yan drama I have ever watched, there are gratuitous scenes where he has to take off his shirt. My main WTF about this drama is really more self-directed. If the plot is pretty much the same as his previous dramas, am I really mostly watching for the eye candy? I’ll let you decide.
That concludes this edition of the worried and ticked off Fangirls. Hopefully, we will have a bit more to chat about in our next edition. There are a bunch of new dramas on the horizon so there is a light at the end of the bored tunnel. Also, be sure to check out our new recaps this week!
Til next time,
