I like Jan Geun Seuk. He’s pretty. Prettier than me! Dang it! I am jealous! Pfh. How can a guy be possibly prettier than me and the rest of my species? Then again, plenty of Korean actors and male singers are prettier than me! What’s up with these 80’s and 90’s born kids? If only I was born 10 years later, I could be part of this beautiful generation. Don’t worry, I have high self esteem *snickers* I think I am pretty pretty *giggles*. Have you seen my child? Well, good look is definitely in his gene. Okay, okay… I better stop right here before someone thinks I’m full of myself *winks* and start vomiting all over my post! *laughs*
Amuden, I originally was extremely excited with Pretty Boy. I was jumping in joy, slapping everybody’s butts (I lied but pretend that I did, ok?) and hi5’s with any human that walks to me! But when the show started airing, I lost my complete interest. I don’t know why… I was the one that got extremely excited and even told everyone to watch it. Yes, they are all watching it but me. I didn’t start it until 3 weeks later… I somehow had this fear of IFs. What if it didn’t turn out to be awesome? What if it isn’t funny? What if this? What if that? You know? I was worry sick to my stomach. I thought maybe if I wait a little longer, I could get some good vibes from my tweetple. Well, needless to say, their reaction were great! I was still skeptical but decided to push forward with my plan. Did I regret it? At the beginning, I was… Now, at episode 12, I am not anymore! I’m curious and I want to know more! *fist pump*
Bel Ami, as I would tweet it, is a drama based on comic book Yebbeun Namja by Chon Kye Kyung. Hong Yoo Ra, an ex daughter-in-law to a rich family saw DokGo Ma Te’s ambitious (male version of goal in life and decided to be his mentor. The mission she assigned to him is to seduce 10 different, very influential women of various backgrounds and tittles, and in return he would gain experiences and knowledge to succeed in his life. Ma Te, being all confident with the challenge he was given, loves to use his beautiful appearance to lure these women but come to find out that all of them did not fall for his looks. In your face, sucker! While busy pursuing his goal in hope to get rich easy faster, Kim Bo Tong, Ma Te’s mom’s friend’s daughter (oh boy, it should not sounded this complicate but I made it sound that way *pouts*) he got to know but never has much desire to befriend her, has a huge crush on him since the first time they met (or she met)! Her happy-go-lucky personality however attracted Choi David, an assistant merchandising director for one major home network broadcast channel. Both David and Bo Tong have this unrequited love for another person. *face palm* how is this going to turn out in the end?
Well… Bel Ami started pretty sloooooooow for me. I wasn’t laughing when everybody else were. I was quite nervous! Is something wrong with me? Why didn’t I like it? *forces claps* *forced smile* I would recommend this drama as it, on my account at least, the pace and the story picked up starting episode 6. I know it’s a bit late for some of us who prefer to drop the show if they see no progress after episode 3, but you need to practice your ohm a little more with Bel Ami. My vote is to marathon it… You will feel better than simulcast it. It’s neither yay or nay however… just my opinion. *shrugs*
