Its that time again where I feel the need to jump in and share those dramas that I really wished I had skipped. So join me as I share my list of crime themed dramas that made me wish I had those hours of my life back….so I could go watch something worthwhile.
God’s Quiz Season 4 – I was a huge fan of the first three instalments of this story. Ryu Deok Hwan is a treasure and I have always been sad that he did not make it bigger than he did in Korean entertainment. Sadly, this last installment felt phoned in. I didn’t connect with the story and I felt that they maybe could have left it just at 3 seasons and called it good.
Dr Frost – This is yet another OCN crime drama that looked like it would be good……then totally flopped. At least for this viewer. I suggest going straight to the webtoon if you are intrigued by the story and giving the live action version a skip.
Wanted – Evil person kidnaps famous actress’s son and forces her to do a live game show to receive clues as to where he is. How could this convoluted plot synopsis possibly go wrong (I say in my most snarkiest tones.) This drama tried so hard to be the next God’s Gift: 14 Days but fell way short. Everything from the storyline, to the actress, to the bad guy was eye rolling levels of bad. The only positive was that Ji Hyun Woo looked really good in a pair of jeans.
3Days – I think they were going for something similar to the US show 24. However, this show was 16 hours of boring action that had me falling asleep more than once. It is a huge skip.
The Village: Achiara’s Secret – The concept was a good one but the actual drama just didn’t deliver like I had been hoping. It might also be because I am not a Moon Geun Young fan. Whatever the reason, this suspense drama left me yawning and the payout just wasn’t there for me.
Thanks for joining me as I took a moment to whine and complain. Be sure to let me know what your least favorite Crime dramas are in the comments and check out my other “I want those hours back” posts HERE.
