Surprisingly, I am watching sageuk again. I believe Queen for Seven Days is my second one this year. The first one was with my Yoo Seung Ho in Ruler. And I also started Six Flying Dragons early this week with Mari. Trust me, I have more historical dramas to watch. Now that I am no longer allergic to sageuk, I will watch more and more. Be prepared *wink*.
This drama has put me to snooze so many times and really, I really just can’t continue with it anymore. I feel that it is challenging my intelligence. I know a few of military stuff since I’ve been growing up watching a lot of war documentaries and movies with my late dad and hub. But when I notice that the writer did not fact check on some military policies and procedures, I feel very disappointed and frustrated. Is it so hard to check facts? I’m sorry, this time, I really can’t let it slide…
I have no problem with the storyline whatsoever though. It is all oh so beautiful. The cinematography is very beautiful. The Songs (Joong Ki and Hye Kyo) are pretty people. The abs were delicious! *licks* But my brain shuts down and rejects Descendants of the Sun. And with that, I have no other excuses but to drop it. Drop it while it is hot! This is a rare moment and you know I hardly drop dramas. I always give my all out but I’m determined to just move on… *sigh*.
My wish is for someone to bottle up all the gorgeousness of the OTPs into one hour clip and post it up on YouTube. Yes, I will watch that! Are you still watching it, chingu? If you dropped it, please tell me why… Can you smell my guilty when everybody else are still enjoying it? *cries*
Oh yeah, another action drama added to my watch list! How exciting, right? Bad Guys started around the same time as Reset. I was disappointed by Reset and at one point, had this mixed feeling whether I should start Bad Guys. Sadly though, my real life hectic was too busy to consider it and went on with it. Wait, what? Yes, the busier I get, the more dramas I decided on watching. Hectic life resorts me to be a hermit and drown myself in dramas. Bad Guys though became a different kind of victim. I started watching it as it was currently airing but it suddenly fell on my ‘let’s put in on hold’ list because of my tiredness, health issue (yes, again!) and work life. This drama don’t deserve it as it is effing awesome! I thought Heartless City was awesome, Bad Guys is beyond awesome!
The story is quite interesting. Maybe I am too naive, I’ve never seen or heard a detective recruited criminals as part of his team. And this is exactly Bad Guys is about. Detective Oh recruited 3 criminals to support his work mission and ultimately his mission is to find out who killed his daughter. The criminals came from different criminal background and each equipped with their own “special” talent *giggles*. I can’t believe I said that but that is how they were chosen from. Based on their criminal talent! Wong Cheol was recruited based on his gangster background, Jung Moon *swooon for his good looks* for his intelligence as the youngest serial killer, and Tae Soo *swoooon for his hotness* for his ability as a contract killer. Detective Oh also included Inspector Mi Young as his support system. And to be honest, adding a female inspector is appropriate for feminine balance into a testosterone team, don’t you think? She puts them into a real perspective, adding some emotional and straighten up their crooked mind. Also, to be honest, woman inspector can be as bad ass as male too, right?
The missions are interesting. Some are recycled from what we have seen in any western or even local dramas, but some are fresh from the good ol’ Korean oven. But what makes this show super solid and interesting? Bad Guys really makes you feel like you are watching a real cop show. No hidden agenda, and no crazy stupid and wacko unrealistic bull crap. When you thought the show will go to a typical cop kdrama move, think again. The action is super awesome. Their ass kicking is out of this world good! Seriously, esp Tae Soo, he is so cool I can watch him beating those crooks again and again. No mercy and I like that! So where is Bad Guys going from here? Episode by episode, we watched them cleaning up the city’s dirty laundry as well as their own personal dirty laundry. I like that. And best of all, I like the violence they put into it.
Bad Guys is only 11 episodes long. I’m currently playing catch up before my vacation starts. Well, technically, I’m on vacation *sticks her tongue out*. At episode 6, I hate to say this but… Why this show is only 11 episodes long? They made us begging for more because this show is very solidly written and acted. My wish is to see OCN consider making another season for this drama. Bad Guys is one of my favorite 2014 show even though I haven’t finish it. I don’t watch as many prime time dramas this year as I should and I don’t watch many weekend dramas as well. If you haven’t seen Bad Guys, please consider watching it. The action will get you going! I swear!
