Well that was a lovely ride indeed – I enjoyed it very much (just as I knew I would), and if I wasn’t already a fan of that young man, well then, I’m hooked and hooked and hooked! I just love this guy and his way of showing his feelings… and those kisses… Hehehe… awesome! So natural and so real and totally irresistible! Spoilers after the jump.
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’ve got 4 episodes left to go to finish Fight My Way and I can hardly make myself start a new episode! I’ve been watching the last 6 of the ones I watched previously 1 episode at a time, so reluctant to click “play” on the one that follows. “Why is that?” you may ask. I blame it all on my Park Seo-joon Swoon Syndrome.
For your viewing pleasure, Exhibit A
But truthfully, it’s not so much his physical perfection (though I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a draw), but the candor and sincerity in his acting. He just imbues his character with so much pure decency that it almost hurts to watch him. I completely understand why the annoying ex-GF can’t let go of him (even after dumping him countless times for men with more $$), though anyone fool enough to value $$ over decency deserves nothing but the sh#theels of the world.
I’m also getting to the high stakes and mistakes part of the drama, particularly for the second couple’s story, so I’d like to savor the happy glow part (at least in my head) a little longer. But finish this one I will, if only to indulge in some PSJS and fangirl flailing.
Yes, I’m still watching shows currently on air, but so many that I generally don’t have open space while I’m waiting for a new episode. In fact, I’m ‘behind’ on a few of them!
Last night I watched the first 2 episodes of Stranger (aka Secret Forest) with Bae Doona and an actor I don’t know much about, Cho Seung-woo, and it ticks the right boxes for me – mystery, conspiracy, smart protagonists. I also watched the first episode of Circle with the spouse last week. He fell asleep, but I’m sufficiently intrigued by the cast and the different and fresh sci-fi angle, so I’m adding it to the list.
I’m furthest along in Ode to Joy 2, which must be wrapping up next week on Dramafever, and I’m still skipping most of the Ying-ying storyline (as well as plenty of Sheng-mei’s too). I really enjoy the Andie/Bao Yifan storyline, and the Xiao Qu/Dr Zhao (Wang Kai) bits too because they are the most natural. Wang Kai in particular is so perfectly at home acting with his ‘girlfriend’ that they no doubt have a million plus shippers.
I’ve also picked up Suspicious Partner and Fight My Way and enjoy them for what they are. By the way, how is Park Seo-joon so darn appealing? I have come to the conclusion that it’s the sincerity in his expression. He just seems so genuine and… pure… for want of a better description.
How about y’all?
