What’s with all the drama?! – Grinch edition
Most of the dramas we last reported on are wrapping up, or at least we wish they were. The biggest news is that Marry Me, Mary has gone into full tailspin mode. We were so excited about this drama earlier this month, and it completely lost it’s direction soon after our last post. So much so, in fact, that they replaced the writer, following it’s dwindling ratings. The new writer has made things even worse, but it was clear that the series was going nowhere anyway. The show has become a spectacle, and I think we’re just going to stop watching it completely rather than endure the further indignities that it is subjecting us to.
On a more positive note, Dr. Champ finished up strongly. The best thing about this drama was that everything seemed so natural and unforced. While Mary has gone from a quirky, independent tone to full-on cliche-fest, Dr. Champ finished with a sense of truth and reality throughout. It wasn’t the best drama ever, but it was solid, and we enjoyed it.
Mischievous Kiss we completed in fast forward mode, and it ultimately was hardly worth that. Just not very good. Something about the cuteness of it caught our attention early on, but we were left wondering why we kept watching it, even if it was while fast forwarding.
We’re trying out Queen of Reversals and just started checking out Secret Garden.
They’re not bad, hopefully they’ll get better. We’re still watching Hour Glass, which is very good, but hard to watch due to the sad story. We took a quick look at Joseon X-files, but the first episode didn’t grab us at all. I guess finding really great dramas like Coffee Prince, Dae Jang Geum, Autumn Tale or Brilliant Legacy isn’t easy. Sunnie is really looking forward to the end of the year acting awards, so we’ll need to keep an eye out for those!
