I didn’t want to dampen my spirits by trying in vain to follow it with a worthy drama – normally whatever follows always disappoints – so I thought that it would be a good idea to turn to a drama that was highly recommended by Robin, so I started Fight My Way.
I watched the first two episodes and YES…thank you Robin..it’s been such fun to watch so far and a very thrilling bonus (for me) is that it also stars Choi Woo Sik, whom I’ve just finished watching in the Package!! Whoopee. I just love this guy (though he’ll always be Hogu to me.) What I love about these characters..especially our lead couple..is that they are so human – full of insecurities and regrets but moving forward bravely – characters like these just speak to you.
I just watched the first three episodes and I’m loving it so far! SO much to identify with, over the years I’ve BEEN there, among that group! I’ve followed along so many of those tour guides down those crowded streets, gotten up when told, had breakfast when told (though in my real life scenarios there was no way we’d be the only group at any of these sites!!!) It’s so familar in a bittersweet kind of way.
One of my favorite fluff movies is If it’s Tuesday it Must be Belgium, and these are the exact vibes – wonder if our director has it on his favorites list too! But aside from that, I’m enjoying watching these quirky people. Individually and as a group they are such fun – love the way each back story is presented. Dear Hogu is here – though he’s as far as he can be from Hogu in fact. I just love watching his face – it’s such an appealing one. We have our older couple who fight light an older couple, or should I say one shouts and the other soothes. We have our mystery couple who supposedly are having an affair but all I see is that he’s acting like an indulgent father spoiling a cranky daughter. I like our heroine too – we get layers regarding her background but she presents the right mix of vulnerability and steel that is intriguing. She reminds me a little of that older lady, patiently repeating the same thing. Is she ever going to get her bonus I wonder???? And then the REAL star of our drama – Paris.
I feel like I’m taking this vacation package with them. it’s just amazing to share that with this interesting group of people!!!!
Looking forward to more….
As we all know, yesterday was a very sad day and the mood lingered into the evening. I had also just finished Falsify (which turned out to be a little wee bit of a disappointment despite the great actors involved) and I just couldn’t settle on anything so I came across Hogu’s Love.
I instantly remembered how much I loved this drama and I picked an episode at random and started to watch. Aah… almost immediately I was transported into his world.
I was reminded how well cast this drama is – this actor is simply perfect for this role and she does so well as the vulnerable and reserved heroine and that baby. I just loved the whole thing and I’m so glad that I came across it. It’s a winner and a real antidote for sadness and I highly recommend it..
