Currently Watching: Voice


*deep exhale* I don’t know where to begin. Yeah, honestly I don’t. And why am I still watching it? *deep breathe* *deep exhale* because I haven’t seen many Korean dramas this year. Because it is Jang Hyuk. Because it is a crime and thriller drama. Unfortunately, Voice disappoints me but I heard it picks up after ep 11. Sure, the cases can be brutal. And I love the craziness of the villains portrayed in this show. However, they are not bloody and violent enough for me. Voice could never compete with Japanese’s crime dramas. If you want to see real psycho villains, you should watch Japanese dramas. They will get you good!

Currently Watching: King of High School


Another noona romance drama! Who’s with me on this one? *screams happily* It’s Seo In Guk! Kyaaaaaaa…. I was so ecstatic when he decided to be in this drama. I dunno, there is something about this boy that I like. His quirkiness, his cuteness (not over the top), his half open eyes, his perfect body (can’t forget that, can we?), and his perfect voice. Ever since I saw him in Love Rain as hipster Chang Mo, I got extremely curious. When he took up the lead role as Yoon Je in Reply 1997, my attachment for him became concrete. Acting is so natural to him. It feels as if he has done acting gig for a while… I’ve seen almost all of his dramas now except Rascal Sons (I am not interested) and Another Parting (I am interested and will watch it). On top of that, he has done 2 movies in 2013. This Superstar K winner and alumni has everything under his belt in a short period of time. I’m very impressed! If only I could pat his head right now… No, no, no. I wanna tackle him from behind and ruffles his hair… You dorky cute In Guk, you *smiles*

Hehehe a little overboard, aren’t I? Sorry, just a little affectionate towards him. Let’s get back to his drama. High School King of Savvy. What a title! I prefer it High School King. For me, when I first heard the title, I thought it is a drama of a popular male student in high school. Well, it is partially true. Seo In Guk plays an immature, naïve and clueless student in his high school. He’s famous as a fearless and incredibly talented hockey player. He even has his own cheering squad. By “cheering squad” means one person, just one… Yoo Ah, who cheers him all the time. She’s definitely cray cray over him. No other girls are allowed to cross path with her Min Seok. Her Min Seok. Her husband. Yeap, her madly one-sided love towards Min Seok. I thought Na Jung from Reply 1994 was cray… It turns out, Yoo Ah ousted her big time. Ooh yeah, she’s one scary girl even I got irritated and intimidated by her.


So here is the deal with High School King of Savvy. Min Seok’s hyung supposed to come back from overseas and reported to his work in a prestigious advertising company immediately. But… for some reason we have no idea why, his hyung asked Min Seok to take his place in the company. It seems that his brother is in a hideout. So with the help of two people in that company, Min Seok came to work disguising as his brother. No one has any clue because apparently he and his hyung are so lookalike they both could pass as the same person. Obviously now we know that In Guk is playing two characters in this drama. Anyway, he met a quirky temporary worker in his brother’s (his) team that has been working there for two years. At first, it was out of pity to save her from losing her job, Min Seok started falling for her. Soo Young, the quirky yet innocent-like worker has feeling towards Jin Woo, the handsome yet cold director in the same company. So can you picture the triangle love in this drama? She later found that Min Seok is as same age as her sister, the psycho Yoo Ah. So how will they turn out? Will she continue going out with him? He’s an underage, it is hard to see going out with him let alone to fall for him. She’s 10 years older than him! *facepalm*


Originally, High School King of Savvy started as 16 episodes long. And all of sudden, they extended the series to 18 episodes. I’m not sure if it is a good thing or bad, it all depends on how they introduce Min Seok’s hyung into the show. My last episode was episode 14. So I’m dying to know… Would I recommend it? Most people dropped it because they can’t stand how immature Min Seok is. Why am I not dropping it? Well… Reason #1 is Seo In Guk. *shrugs* Of course, right? Reason #2 is because he is a high school student and it is so obvious that how a young teenage boy would behave with his crush older than him. Reason #3 is even though Soo Young is much older than he is (most people are disgusted by the age difference), her level of maturity is extremely low and I hope that this experience will wake her grow up a bit. Reason #4 is that this show reminded me of another noona drama (as pointed out by Erl), Flower Boy Ramyun Shop.  Anyway… If you’re okay with these reasons, *smile* c’mon, let’s watch it! If you are not okay, then don’t watch it. I personally don’t mind because I think it is cute and it gives me pure entertainment. After Witch’s Romance, I sure need another noona romance drama. And I got one! *cheers*
