I swear I feel unfortunate brain cells die every time I watch another episode of May Queen.



Yet, as long as Kim Jae Won is in it, being his irresistible, wry, angsty, charming self, I am stuck!

Basically, as long as the drama gives me this, I am sticking around )

It is a genuine mystery to me what Han Ji Hye sees in the unattractively woeful and issue-full Jae Hee, with his lack of progress past hand-holding in 15 years and with his homicidal father who likes to abuse her, when she has amazing KJW there. I mean, that whole scene where KJW finds out HJH/JH dated for 15 years and her reaction to his asking her if she was blind and didn't realize he, KJW, liked her (which is 'lalalalala I won't take it seriously'), made me shake my head and wonder if she and Jae Hee aren't best matched after all, as matching victims of brain damage.

Blah.

Curse you, Kim Jae Won, and your incredible charm! If it wasn't for you, I'd dump this thing so fast my head would spin!

Episode 5 of Nice Guy was very good (well, except those Choco-friend-ex scenes. What are they even doing in this drama? Is LKH dying to do a romcom or something, but is pressed for time so has to shoehorn it into her airing drama?)



The thing is, it is clear by now Eun Gi is not playing Maru in any way (which I find both surprising, seeing her tough distrustful shell, and oddly true - seeing how vulnerable she is underneath). I am narratively fine with a revenge scheme on Maru's part but I do get a delicious "I can't wait until she finds out and goes apocalyptic on you" feeling for their scenes, mainly because Eun Gi is my POV character and what he is doing to her makes me blazingly angry (of course, it's all complicated by the fact that real feelings of care and concern and possibility of love are bleeding into the make-believe). What drives me nuts though is not the 'I am using EG' part, it's the fact that he is still hung up on Jae Hee. ENOUGH! It's like one of those romcoms where all the hero does is pine for the annoying second lead girl and you just want to hit the ff-button, climb into the screen and tell him to have his head examined. It makes sense 100% narratively for his character to be so hung up, but as a viewer, it just makes me want I had a brainwashing machine I could stick him into and move on past that.

Some caps from this episode. Jae Hee-free zone )

NG continues to be excellent but also a rather hard watch. It's well-written and acted but, as a viewer, I am finding it hard to muster my enthusiasm for the story whose male lead invokes burning rage in me and a desire to bash him in the head. Song Joong Ki is acting his socks off, and Maru is as fascinating and complex as he is repulsive, but repulsive he is - not to mention morally bankrupt (so is Jae Hee, but that goes without saying).

Long thoughts and lots of caps )
