Taking a page out of Robin’s honeybee activities

I did check out Encounter a couple of weeks ago. I guess I must be in the mood for the older dramas while I wait for new ones to end. I did have my reservations about it..simply because I couldn’t see that the pairing would work well..While I have no problem seeing Song Hye Kyo as the older, damaged, emotionless heroine (frankly I’ve never really felt any warmth from her in her dramas anyway so this seemed a perfect fit) I just have problems with our hero Park Bo-gum. It’s not only because of his age..and of course that IS one of the obvious obstacles…it’s that to me he seems sooo young..like a little puppy dog with his bright smile and sunny persona..that..while I can totally believe that he would make a difference in her life..it’s hard for me to accept that she would have a romantic interest in him. Like I said..it’s not only because of his age..because there are other actors who are the same age but are able to bring a maturity and intensity to a role that goes far beyond a number but I don’t see it here.

I’ve seen three episodes already and nothing has changed my mind about it really. HE is just too much of a Pollyana and I’m not sure how I’ll react when their relationship moves from friendship to romance..maybe I’ll be surprised but maybe not. The usual wicked mother in laws are here..the usual gossips are here..the usual fight for takeovers are here..but there are unrealistic aspects which just don’t gel for me.

Now there is an actor who has caught my fancy and whom I would have preferred in the main lead (Jang Seung Jo) I’ve seen him before in minor roles and have always remembered him and I think that if he had been cast as the hero I would have bought into this couple alot easier.

I’m not saying that I’ll drop it for now..but I’m not making any promises in future.

The “Song” Couple

I’m not surprised…..and they would’ve made some beautiful babies together. Still, the disintegration of so short a seemingly loving courtship and marriage is disheartening for whatever “undisclosed “ reason……

Finished Boyfriend

I enjoyed it, but don’t really know if I did cause it’s been forever since I saw a drama, or because it was really good? You’ve got your good, bad and downright ugly to the bone characters, but how each situation is handled is well done. The dreaded MIL is alive and well, but they don’t over do the bullying that we know these $itches can cause. There’s also the ambitious mother who causes a lot of damage too, and you can’t miss the ill effects of either.

My takeaway here is that losing your honor is a bitter pill to swallow, and when they go low, you stay high. Of course I’m a romance junkie, and liked every moment of it, lol

So… is it my imagination or is there a little…

too much hysteria lately regarding the new power couple of Song-Song? It seems that everywhere you look that’s all they’re writing about..to the point of really digging for even the smallest something to say – I understand that it feels like a live k-drama in a sense because the make believe couple actually became a real one..a fairy tale kind of ending… but I find it a bit exaggerated.

I like them and I wish them well and I hope that they can breathe a little now that the spotlight is shining brightly over them. I sort of have the same question regarding the drama itself. I liked it well enough but I’ve seen others that I liked even more – and yet, even all this time afterwards it still hasn’t faded away – you just never know when something will catch fire in the public forum do you?
