With each new week I’m loving the drama but at the same time I can’t understand the people who glorify the manhwa. It was a good read but after reading some of it, I can’t find myself enjoying it as much as I enjoy the drama, but then again as I already said in my previous post that is maybe because I’m more of a drama person.
I do admit that for me the actors are also a big part of why I like the drama more. Park Hae Jin remains good as Yoo Jung, but I actually find the other characters such as Seol, In Ha, In Ho or Seol’s friends to be more charming in the drama. I didn’t even notice In Ho in the manhwa, but that is because the writing didn’t make me have any feelings towards him as a character yet in the drama Seo Kang Joon makes him seem charismatic and comfortable to be around him. The thing is that I still can’t see him have any romantic involvement towards Seol – nor the other way around. They match being just friends. I enjoy the scenes with In Ho and Seol, they seem like two pals and it’s likable seeing them biker or advising each other but overall being comfortable in one another’s presence.
There’s something similar about In Ho and Jung, both, together with In Ha are just brats. Jung acts mature but he isn’t and thinks things only from his own perspective while In Ho is rush in every action he does. The main idea is that both need to drop or tone down the prideful act afterwards I will take them seriously since for now the two act like some high school students.
As for In Ha I love her over the top personality. It may not be the best approach for a drama and I do think Lee Sung Kyung’s acting isn’t that good but In Ha as a character brightens up the story. Even though I agree with other people who don’t like the actress at the same time I don’t want her to stop the overreaction. At this point I’m thinking that Lee Sung Kyung understood In Ha in her own way. There is the possibility she thought In Ha is hiding her true self beneath the big and loud actions she normally does.
Seol is on her way of becoming my favorite female character of all times. I like that she isn’t the normal pitiful female lead but in fact she also has her own flaws showed. The story doesn’t take Seol’s side and I like this part of the drama. Like for example with the team project incident. Although Seol was disadvantaged because her team mates weren’t doing anything, she is also the type of person who thinks that it is better to do things by herself since she can do it better. Even the teacher told her and Bo Ra was also frank about this issue. Seol refuses help from people nor asks and just keeps everything to herself like Bo Ra said. She is in a way gullible and we saw that in the way Sang Chul treats her.
Moving on to the couple, Seol and Jung. The best scene of this week has to be when the people from the office were asking Jung if he and Seol are dating and he smiled and confirmed it. It was actually way better than when he asked her out.
My question is if Jung understands Seol. Personally I don’t think he does get her but let’s just think of that as the fun part of dating and a long process of maturing together. However he makes her uncomfortable most of the time because of him being so carefree with the places he choose and so on. He doesn’t think from Seol’s perspective at all.
Anyway, I liked these two episodes as well and to be honest even though I was concerned with the writer (I still am) the flow is quite nice so I hope she maintains it.
