Waikiki! Wai-kee-keeeeeee! *laughs*. Sorry, I can’t help saying it and somewhat reminds me of Miss Korea. Anyway, I finally got into Laughter in Waikiki wagon. I was not able to watch it immediately due to my busy schedule. But since I am on travel, I get some me time to catch up on this drama. Initially, the premise of this drama reminded me of 3 Papas but I immediately realized it only has a tiny similarity. To be honest, I find Waikiki to be more entertaining and hilarious. It is a solid written drama from a genius rookie writer!
I’m back!!! I’m here to share my love for a certain show that’s currently airing!
School 2017 airs Mondays & Tuesdays on KBS2 if you are in the states Viki is streaming it!
Why should you join me in this??? Why? Why??
Honestly because the show is good! 10 episodes have aired and I learned to love and care for the three main character as if they where mine.
so what’s the show about you wonder? Well it’s about a a group of students in their second year of high school ( I honestly don’t know how to label SK schools but I believe by their ages it’s the equivalent of a sophomore/junior in the US).
The main characters are: The class president Song DaeHwi he is the schools number #1 student and seems flawless. He seems perfect on the outside but having a poor background means he has to work a lot harder for his place. He is ambitious and willing to do anything to get into the top university.
All schools have a bad boy!! And here is ours Hyun TaeWoon. He checks all the needed boxes for bad boy in a kdrama. He is rich, good looking, seems to not give a care about anything. Yet you find out out that what you see is not what you get with him.
Out female lead is the adorable Ra EunHo. She’s cute, spunky, loyal to a fault. She won’t stand for any injustice and will never give up without a fight.
Then we have one of their teachers Shim KangMyung. He is their homeroom teacher and the one we often see interacting with the students. He hasn’t been jaded by the school system and still cares for the all the kids. He is often the only adult on the kids side. He is this adorable awkward man and has this cute friendship/romance going on with the person in charge of security in the school Han Sooji. They start off in opposite sides, but know both seem to just want to help the kids.
So please join me in watching these kids journey into adulthood. This is the age when you decide what’s important to you. What you want to be in life. What friendships are worth keeping and how to deal with a world that seems to only protect the affluent.
Also have a mention that this show has the cutest otp? They are adorable together!!!
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*
