6/? of 1N2D Joonyoung *^~^*
Is this worth watching? I gave up on season 2 pretty quick and never looked back. But now I’m rethinking that decision, because: Jung Joon Young!
I’ve settled on tagging Prime Minister’s Lee Min Ho as “lee min ho the younger” because it sounds delightfully old-school, reminiscent of Pliny and Breughel. Which means I’m now tempted to tag anything to do with the other Lee Min Ho as “lee min ho the elder.”
These poor kids that have the same name as the uber famous celebs who have gone before them. Although I have total respect he hasn’t changed his name. Not that there’s anything wrong with changing your name, of course. *looks longingly at the eleventy-billion things in the Woo Bin tag*
Eeee! I just read that Choi Jin Hyuk is cast in a new drama with Song Ji Hyo! I’m not really a fan of medical dramas but you bet your sweet life I will watch this, since I’m bitter that he’s been completely wasted in Heirs (actually I’m bitter about a lot of things regarding Heirs, but we’re focusing on happy thoughts right now).
Also, apparently there was an issue with Three Days and the timeslot, but I’m relieved to know it’s set to air as scheduled since I’m a diehard Kim Eun Hee fangirl and have been waiting for this drama ever since it was announced at the beginning of the year. I’m also excited because the director is the same one who directed Tree With Deep Roots, and that was a stunningly beautiful drama. So I have high hopes this will be not only be a well-written drama, but one that’s very pleasing to the eye, too. (And no, I’m not talking about the fact that they got Park Yoochun to play the lead.)
So my long list of currently-watching dramas isn’t going to end any time soon, what with the premiere of Prime Minister and I this week, Miss Korea next week, You Who Came From The Stars at the end of the month, I Need Romance 3, Inspiring Age, and the aforementioned Emergency Couple in January, and finally Three Days in Feb.
Hopefully there won’t be (too many) more new dramas that catch my attention, because I’m barely keeping up with everything as it is, and I’m in total couch-potato hibernation mode. (For the curious, my current list is Prime Minister and I, Pretty Man, Heirs [OH THANK GOODNESS THIS IS THE LAST WEEK], Let’s Eat, and Reply 1994).
I’ve dropped Basketball since I couldn’t handle the depressing sadness each week (does any good ever happen for our hero?!) and it was always the last one on the list to get caught up on, until I realized I was three weeks behind and about to push it off for yet another week. Sometimes you just need to know your limitations, right? Although it’s only the second drama this year I haven’t finished, so I’m amazed to know I’ve been able to keep up as well as I have. (The other one was You’re the Best, Lee Soon Shin. I cut my losses early, with no regrets. If I need a Jo Jung Suk fix, I’ll just watch What’s Up? for the nth time.)
Gah, dramas. Why can’t I quit you?
