(I apologize for spamming - consider it a balance to dearth of posts in the last couple of weeks)

It's like feast or famine in the drama world.

For months, there was nothing remotely grabbing me, but all of a sudden I am deluged by dramas I am getting quite obsessed about.



One of these dramas is What's Up, a drama I've given up hope of ever seeing until cable rescued it.

I have only watched half of first ep before I decided I want to wait for subs (is anyone besides viki subbing this? I need softsubs, I loathe streaming), but I really liked what I saw. Im Ju Hwan is brilliant (but when isn't he?) as a street thief-hustler but I really like the rest of the cast too (a mix of actors and singers, but all doing a uniformly good job), the slightly grainy feel of the drama, and the character interactions. While I enjoyed both Dream High (until it lost me near the end) and Heartstrings, I think this has the potential of becoming my favorite 'bright musical talents in school' drama - not surprising with that writer.

The soundtrack is gorgeous.

And lest you think this drama is all SRS BSNS, it also has this:



No, I have no idea how many drugs were involved.

Back when, in my obsessive college days, I used to take the bus to NYC every weekend to watch shows, and saw Frank Wildhorn's Jekyll and Hyde with the original cast (a few too many times for my wallet's peace of mind), and used to play "This is the Moment" to pep self up before exams, I never thought that almost 15 years later, I'd see someone perform it in Korean in a drama.

Whoa.

Takes one back.

Here is Daesung belting it out in What's Up. Never saw the guy in anything before but he's got quite a voice. Mmmmmm.



And here is Robert Cuccioli, singing this, playing Jekyll in the original Broadway cast in 1997.



Ahhhh, memories. I am still getting shivers listening to him.
