Yes, I decided to take up on POPDramatic‘s 30-Day challenge. It looks fun, so why not? *wink*. And my guest bloggers, Mari and Erl, are participating, too! How awesome is that? *claps*. So check our answers out!
Day 1: Drama plotline that made you (or nearly made you) ragequit.
Me: Miss Ripley! God that show drove me batshit crazy!!! I saw three episodes and raised my white flag! Hell no. Her constant lying irritated me so much. I just can’t watch her fooling both men! Sorry, I had to hate Lee Da Hae here because of her character!
Mari: If we are going with something that made me quit recently It would have to be
“She was Pretty“. The main guy treated her like trash for almost 3/4’s of the drama. He belittles her, constantly screaming and calling her names. He made her cry so many times. Yet she forgives everything because he was “traumatized” as a kid and could not recognize his first love??? also Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!! the second lead ( Siwon! I miss you!) was perfect in his weird way!! I’m still so angry as I type this!!!
Erl: My pick would be Doctor Stranger. That was a real pain to watch and honestly I still have this leftover impulse to pull my hair whenever I think about that drama. Between the repeated desperate scenes involving falling from a bridge and not dying, everything is just all over the place. And I just can’t with Jin Se-yeon, I just can’t!
Day 2: Actor(s) that proved you wrong about their acting abilities.
Me: I really dislike idol turns actor. But Big Bang’ TOP shot me down really good with his acting on Tazza – Hand of God. The man is brilliant! His casual acting is unreal! He definitely can act!
Mari:let’s see… If we have to pick actual “actors” and not Idols turned actors I would have to go with So Ji-Sub in “Master’s Sun“. His previous dramas that I seen left me questioning why he was doing something he seemed so bored doing( see “What Happen in Bali” and “MiSa“) so I was surprised and enjoyed his character so much in MS.
Erl: Hmmm, the unexpected .. Well, I think I would have to go with Seung-Ri, another Big Bang member. I didn’t expect to enjoy his acting in Angel Eyes but I really did. He really provided a comic relief in that drama and boy, am I so relieved that he did!
Day 3: Actress(es) that proved you wrong about their acting abilities.
Me: Shin Se-Kyung. I really like her in Blade Man! She improves a lot! But I don’t know her performance in Six Flying Dragons… Jang NaRa is another name came to mind. She was not my favorite until School 2013. From then on, she really fly…
Mari::I have 3!!!! Shin Se-Kyung in “The girl who sees smells” Go Ara in “Reply 1994” and Lee Yeon-Hee in “Miss Korea” the last 2 were always known for being gorgeous while their acting was painful but they did a great job in those shows. For Shin Se-Kyung we discovered that she should only do comedies.
Erl: Shin Se-Kyung!!! I was really surprised by the amount of love that I felt for her in Girl Who See Smells, it’s crazy and I’m pretty biased with actresses.
Day 4: Corny drama soundtrack that you secretly love to listen to.
Me: Guilty!!! Boys Over Flowers OST. You know the song… Almost Parrradisseeeeee! I secretly hate it yet love it. Sure, call me a hypocrite. I don’t care! Great, now I can hear the song in my head… *facepalm*
Mari: *scans her iTunes playlist* I have & still play some song from the following OSTs: Boys over Flowers, You’re Beautiful, Heartstrings, To The beautiful You & Master’s Sun.
Erl: Okay, I guess I have to come clean. I really, really love to listen to the Heirs OST and whenever a friend I’m talking to says the word “moment” I always go.. ooh, ooh, ohh, love is the mommeeeent… And yeah, I leave them speechless.
Day 5: Guilty pleasure drama that you love to watch, even though you know it’s flawed.
Me: Playful Kiss! The Korean version, of course! Please, do not remind me of KHJ’s choppy and woody acting! And don’t remind me of his stupid scandal! *rolls eyes* But I love watching it mainly for Oh Ha Ni! She reminds me of… ME!!!
Mari: “You’re Beautiful“, “Heartstrings” and “To the beautiful You” I know they are terrible but they always make me smile
Erl: I would have to go with You’re Beautiful and To the Beautiful You. I know, it’s flawed, completely flawed but it’s sinfully cheesy and delicious.
