Various Korean Dramas, But Not One Up to the Mark

Various Korean Dramas, But Not One Up to the Mark

V for me is jinxed.

VIP – Starring Jang Na-Ra and Lee Sang-Yoon, I had high hopes of this one. Na Jung-Sun (Jang Na-Ra) and Park Seong-Jun (Lee Sang-Yoon) work in the same company and are married, but in the first episode itself we come to know that Park Seong-Jun has cheated on his wife and his wife has come to know about it. Park Seong-Jun confesses to his wife and apologises to her, but Jun-Sun finds it difficult to come to terms with her husband’s infidelity. In this show, I found the supporting actors more interesting than the lead actors. Jang Na-Ra’s acting is not up to the mark, while Lee Sang-Yoon throughout the show has just a single dumb expression on his face of that of a person who went off to sleep in 1999 and woke up in 2019.

I have watched 4 Korean dramas starting with the letter V, and was forced to leave at some point or the other without finishing them.

Vagabond – With Lee Seung-Gi and Bae Suzy, I started this drama with great hopes only to be disappointed.

Vincenzo – I had heard a lot about Song Joong-Ki and Vincenzo, but only after a couple of episodes realised that I need to take recommendations with a pinch of salt. Song Joong-Ki and Lee Min-Ho are two very popular male leads who I can’t stomach. I know I am going to get a lot of hate messages after this, but seriously they don’t make my heart flutter or get my pulse racing as Jung Hae-In or Gong Yoo does.

I Hear Your Voice – Lee Jong-Suk looking like an overgrown teenager is a total disappointment, not to mention the overacting done by all actors. This was a total time waste that I regret a lot.

If you have any good recommendation for me for the letter V, do let me know.

  1. Anshu, I usually love characters not actors. DOTS was one of the first K drama I had watched and I loved it despite all it’s flaws. The character of Yoo Si Jin played by Song Joong ki did make my heart flutter and how! But that’s because the character was so good. I don’t like him that much otherwise. He will forever be Yoo Si Jin from DOTS for me

    1. True, and that’s how it should be, but somehow I can’t get past their expressions and gestures and keep on thinking whether they do justice to the character and the scene.
      I haven’t watched DOTS but I shall one day just because of Song Hye-Kyo, I like her. Also DOTS comes with high recommendations, even you recommend it, so will tolerate Song Joong-Ki to watch a good drama 🙂
