As you probably realized by the conspicuous lack of any Athena-related posts, I haven't been following that drama at all.

Simply put, I was bored to death by the first episode (I don't remember the last time with a major drama where I ended the first ep without having a single moment that grabbed me or a single character that made me interested to at least check out ep 2). I was so bored, I never even felt the desire to check out ep 2, and that despite the fact that I adore Jung Woo Sung, Lee Ji Ah and Cha Seung Won, and that its thematic predecessor, IRIS, went on my all-time favorite list.

JWS' character was just blandly dull, Su Ae was a sociopath (I have seldom disliked a leading lady like that from the start but she really fits the textbook definition), the same was true of Cha Seung Won, and Lee Ji Ah didn't even appear. Plus, the pacing was molasses-slow and JWS and Su Ae lacked any chemistry whatsoever.

But now, [livejournal.com profile] algelic, posted the below amazing vid and about how CSW and LJA's characters end up hooking up for manipulation reasons but develop feelings, and I am tempted enough to give it another try:



I only wish whoever made that vid, made the drama, too. Now, that would be a drama worth watching. Oh well, since that's not to be - my wish - in the alternate universe, get rid of Su Ae, give Jung Woo Sung a good drama to show off his acting chops in, and leave this one to CSW and LJA to develop some sexy dysfunction. Please.

Anyway, am about to go for try n2. I hope it's less emotionally dead than it seemed from ep 1.
