Started up on The Smile Has Left Your Eyes

I’m only into episode two and I’m finding the sweet Seo Inguk REALLY creepy so far – as I’m meant to I suppose.

The whole drama has a really dark vibe too, but it’s refreshing as well to try to figure out if he’s good or bad… I love those kinds of characters!! I think he’s got pretty good chemistry with Jung So-min too. She seems to really interact well with most of her costars doesn’t she?

It’s the kind of drama where you start questioning the meaning behind each piece of dialogue, each look, each smile. It can definitely be hard to watch a character scamming another, if not stealing their money, then stealing their trust and certainly their innocence. After only two episodes it seems that we have examples of all of this and obviously much more to come. But (for instance) this is how affected I was; there was a scene where a little kitten arrives and our hero picks it up and my heart is pounding because I can’t be sure if he really likes the sweet little thing or if he’s going to bash it against a wall any second. LOL

Obviously I need to keep watching till I get all my answers. I like the fact that the actor can stretch himself and play something totally different – good for him!

Sorry, but I bailed on Shopping King Louis

I tried, really I tried, but it just failed to grab me the way I want a drama to grab me, so after episode 5 I read the summaries on Dramabeans and went to the scenes in various episodes that I felt that I would enjoy seeing. (And let me just say, there were very few of those, sadly.)

Yes, Seo Inguk is charming, but I don’t want a man-child for my romantic leading man when it comes right down to it.

Camelia, I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t muster enough enthusiasm for this one.

Seo Inguk enlisted today – Shopping King Louis for our next group view?

Boo hoo, the minute that I saw a pic on Instagram of him with short hair I knew why the new ‘do’ – he quietly enlisted today as a regular serviceman. See you in 2, Guki!

To commemorate his departure, would you be interested in watching Shopping King Louis, maybe starting this weekend?
