It is time for yet another new segment! Mostly because I thought it would be fun to chat about the dramas that were a huge fat sucky failure for once. Giving negative reviews are just as important as positive since it might save 50 hours of your life. Why waste time on crappy drama after all?
WARNING: There might be the occasional spoiler in a few of my comments. If you are a chronodramaphobia (Fear of future drama events…aka spoilers) read at your own risk!
Monster – I am all for a good setup for revenge. And Monster had a wonderful one. Who wouldn’t want to destroy the uncle who killed all your family and framed you for murder……..twice. But when revenge goes for over 20 years and you suddenly have selective amnesia thanks to a bullet lodged in your brain and a hypnotist who takes memories away to make the pain stop……NOT MAKING THIS UP. I say good riddance. Just kill the guy and get over it.
Master God of Noodles – They killed off the only character I liked. Everyone else can go rot in mediocre revenge hell.
Yong Pal – When the leading lady is willing to murder people to get her revenge, it just doesn’t sit well. Especially when this killer personality feels like it came out of nowhere. Maybe if she had been better written, but this crocodile queen (if you suffered through the drama you get the reference) was blah from the get go.
Big Man – I kept expecting the leading man to suddenly come out really aggressive and clever. Sadly he always remained bumbling and a little on the dim side when it came to revenge. I guess I just like my payback to come in a really smart and efficient package. This drama & its lead were not smart nor efficient.
Endless Love – I wish I could go and get revenge on the writers for this piece of endless crap. How dare they give my Jung Kyung Ho a boring, and not really happy, ending. Not to mention having to watch Hwang Jung Eum cry, scream, and try to get revenge for 37 hours was a torture in of itself.
East of Eden – This drama started out strong but also suffered from a never ending revenge plot. If an evil guy gets to live 20+ years of total bliss because you are dithering over your revenge, does it even really count?
This concludes my list of revenge dramas that I wish I had never viewed. All together that is over a 100 hours of my life wasted. But at least my pain might save you poor readers a similar fate. Also, if you think I missed one, be sure to let us know in the comments.
Til next time,
