I decided to take a break from watching KBS family drama. The last 8 episodes of My Golden Life got me frustrated and upset. Not only the show was extended by two more episodes, the writer failed to use the opportunity to smoothen out the mess. I was livid and vowed to not watch another KBS weekend drama (for) now. But on the good side, SBS new weekend drama Nice Witch is on and the episodes are much shorter. 40 episodes long is a bonus – more opportunity to me to focus on other weekend drama!
Circle was the most complicated drama I have seen this year. The reason I said it was that this drama was difficult to predict. Really drove me insane! I really could not piece out the puzzle until the last three episodes. Yeah, I think my brain was not able to keep up especially that in each episode, the story was told in two different years. The first 30 minutes focused on the present world while the last 30 minutes on the year 2037. It felt like watching two different stories in a drama. Thankfully, Orion and Drama Panda were available to explain exactly the story was.
If you are on Strong Woman Do Bong Soon fever like us, I am sure you look forward to Fridays. So far, 10 episodes have aired and we have eyes only for the OTP. The ever so lovingly and petite package Park Bo Young and the how-did-he-suddenly-so-attractive Park Hyung Sik! If we could bottle these two together, we would! They are simply attractive together. Sorry Ji Soo, looks like you are completely forgettable in this drama (Mari: I still love JiSoo, but the OTP is LOVE) . I hope he gets justice on his next project because really, he just can’t be saved anymore *pouts*. For this post, I have decided to do it differently than usual. Mari and I will comment on selected scenes from each episode (up to episode 8). WARNING: OTP heavily focus. Why? Because we can! *wink*
I started this show because I was influenced by Grace and Mari. My undying love for Gummy was too strong and Grace’s fear that I will combust led me to start Jealousy Incarnate. I sort of agree with her. It was difficult to breathe. Gummy took over my life completely I couldn’t focus on anything. And if you notice, I have not been blogging almost a month because not only I was busy with work, I just couldn’t focus on my writing. I blame Park Bo Gum *laughs*.
Anyway, let’s not talk about Gummy. Or else this post will turn into another Gummy post *giggles*. And his post will come up soon. Jealousy Incarnate. An attempt to get me to fall for the second lead, Jeong Won, played by handsome looking Go Gyeong Po. Well, clearly my heart did not sink in with him. He is a puppy alright. But not for me. His character is too char for me. He has this romance aura but somehow I found Jeong Won a love beggar. As a humble chaebol, Jeong Won is the man of of your dream. He is generous with smile, generous with his money, generous with love. But his generosity is overshadowed by Hwa Shin, his nemesis played by Jo Jung Suk. Let me just say, I dislike Jo Jung Suk and his character in this drama is pretty chauvinistic! I just can’t!
As of last night, 19 episodes have aired and I have seen up to episode 18. I have decided to quit this drama because of its continuous tug and pull between the main characters, the second leads and the third leads. Yes, there are three triangle love in this show. Between Hwa Shin, Na Ri and Jeong Won, between Seong Sook, chefu and Ja Yeong, and between Red, Seong Sook and Ja Yeong. The show is romantically cute, funny and mature yet dark but I don’t think it is for me. I’m just tired of it.
But what good about this drama is the OST. Oh my God… I would love to own it! That’s all. For now, goodbye Jealousy Incarnate. Thanks for the laughs. If I ever continue to watch it again, I’ll just FF to chefu scenes. He’s hawttttttt! EOP (end of post) *giggles*
