For those of us who know little to no Korean, our lives are a constant game of catch up in kdrama land. Monday-Tuesday shows become Tuesday-Wednesday shows, Wednesday-Thursday shows become Thursday-Friday shows, and Saturday-Sunday shows become Sunday-Monday shows. *sigh*
Tonight starts off the week for me in English-subs-viewer-land beginning with Dream High 2 and Shut Up Flower Boy Band. What a way to start off the week.
On the one hand, it's good because we have the awesomeness that is Shut Up Flower Boy Band. But then, we have the awfulness that is Dream High 2. The only reason I'm still watching Dream High 2 is for my loyalty to the series, thanks to the great Dream High. The two can't be compared however, as DH2 has had maybe two decent episodes and 11 crappy ones.
But then there's SUFBB that saves the day. After watching today's (yesterday's?) episode, I'm in pure shock. JiHyuk in tears? Never thought I'd see the day! But it was so heartfelt and genuine, that I was right there with him and his pain. The only major issue I have with SUFBB is that they underutilize Jung Eui-Chul. He was such an awesome actor in Boys Over Flowers and I have been waiting ever since then for him to have an amazing lead role. But his character Seung-Hoon spent most of the show stubbornly brooding. He's finally starting to have some real reactions, but the series is coming to an end, and it's frustrating that EuiChul-ah didn't get his shine.
