Dramascope (July 2013)

Dramascope july2013

Cheers to a new segment that I’m starting on this blog. I’m a little shy to call it a new segment when it’s very unoriginal, but until I can come up with something spectacular, this will have to do. It’s very similar to my commentary series where I try to keep an eye on how pedantic my writing can become. I’m currently watching 12 dramas because I’m crazy, and to write about all of them means that I really have no life. So my dramascope posts will be dedicated to first impressions, ending thoughts, or just random babbling about dramas I don’t want to dedicate an entire post to. Also, not sure why I find that breaking grammar rules is cool..just look at my blogger name. Continue reading “Dramascope (July 2013)”

The Cream of the Crop: Good actors/actresses

Good Actors
Normally when I hear news that a new drama is in talks, I look out for the pretty faces that will soon fill the leading slots. It’s a bit vain, but I just feel watching someone who is aesthetically pleasing is easier on the eyes. However, even if the person looks pretty or handsome, I also need their acting skills to be up to par. The looks are just an extra bonus for me. We may sometimes get caught up in the gorgeous cinematography, compelling script, and pretty leads…but if I could ask, how often do we remember the side characters that probably acted as well as the leads but never got much credit…Most of us would not know them by name, and we might even forget their face. This isn’t a post to point out not-so good-looking people who can act well, but to acknowledge individuals who whatever ever their looks are, have somehow made a lasting impression on me because of their acting chops.

You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin Criticism

Screen Shot 2013-06-12 at 12.39.25 AMYou’re the Best Lee Soon Shin is a little over pass the halfway mark, but sadly our OTP aren’t even halfway in to falling in love. I can count the number of times there have been heart thumping moments between them on my fingers. Not including the countless number of times Joon Ho has stared intently at Soon Shin with a look of concern which not once has she returned. Yes she has looked at him, but not in the way she should be by now. My worry is that a year from now, when I want to go back and watch snippets from YTBLSS here and there, I will have to start all the way from the episodes in the late 30’s to 50 in order to see really cute, heart thumping moments from the OTP. I really don’t want that to happen. I want these moments to be embedded from the very beginning till it completely overtakes them and they end up marching down that aisle at the end.

Nine: Nine Time Travels Ending Commentary

Nine Edit 1

I think I have become a proud supporter of the PD and writer’s for Queen In Hyun’s Man and Nine. I am going to keep them on my radar because so far their dramas have been outstanding (Which includes Vampire Prosecutor from the PD, and Ten from one of the writers). Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you execute a drama correctly. The plot of Nine: Nine Time Travels is very solid, you can tell they thought this out well and ultimately, we were left with a satisfying ending. I love that after I watched the finale, I had to sit down and really think about what just happened, which rarely happens with the dramas I watch these days.
