My Girl

Aug. 9th, 2012 02:11 pm

Cross-posted from my tumblr, because I'm lazy about blog entries and had a random bit of word vomit over there.

I have been such a sourpuss when it comes to dramas recently.  Nothing pleases me… mainly because everything I’ve watched has been mediocre at best.  Rooftop Prince switched from a comedic time-traveling murder mystery to a pointless battle over a company no one cared about.  Big was a mess from beginning to end, despite having two actors in the lead roles that I adore.  And now My Girl, a drama I’ve been meaning to watch since I got into this fandom, because 95% of the times I saw it mentioned, people loved it.

I did not.

I’m starting to think maybe I’m not the biggest Hong Sisters fan.  Perhaps I’m hanging on to the belief that I should be, because I loved Hong Gil Dong (until those blasted final four episodes), Fantasy Couple, and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (to a lesser extent than Fantasy Couple).  But Best Love, You’re Beautiful, Big, and now My Girl left me feeling fairly tepid.

Cut for My Girl spoilers and a lot of whining on my part )
Hey guys! Sorry for neglecting for lj... again. I've been spending my online time over on tumblr for the most part.

Real life is been... quite full. Especially in the work realm. And I just haven't been watching that many dramas. I gave King 2 Hearts a try for four episodes but was bored (not quite to tears... but nearly there). I think I just need to stay away from North Korean spy dramas. I don't even know what that show was trying to be. But if it was trying to be dull, it really succeeded. Maybe it got better after 4 episodes, maybe other people liked it, but its not for me. And I'm past staying with dramas I don't care anything about.

I did randomly start Rooftop Prince even though I had no intention of doing so. And I surprisingly REALLY enjoy it. I'm totally in it for the comedic aspect of it, because the romance (through six episodes) leaves me completely unengaged. I think I just don't care about the male lead. But when the drama stays in the comedy realm I am completely on board. I haven't laughed like that at a drama in a long time.

I'm also slowly watching My Girl which is pretty good. Yoo-rin is fantastic. Gong-chan has the potential to be so, I'm still waiting since I've heard so many great things about him. But MAN, I can't be the only one who intensely dislikes Lee Jun-ki's character, right?

OH! And I watched the SPEC SP and like all things SPEC it was great. And made me want to watch the drama again, which I probably will.
