My Personal Thoughts
“Alice” is lots of fun to watch thus far, still confusing here and there but it’s fun. OCN’s “Missing: The Other Side” is a gem that I honestly regret watching because right now, I can’t hold back and its going to be a struggle to wait a week for new episodes, I plan on reviewing “Missing: The Other Side” once its done, its only 12 episodes, but its easily one of the best OCN dramas of 2020.
“Lies Of Lies” is overly dramatic and I say this with the nicest intentions, it’s like a guilty pleasure for me, a bit too dramatic for my taste but honestly, I am really curious to see how the drama plays out. I think the premise is interesting and I am happy for Lee Yoo Ri and Yeon Jung Hoon. Lee Yoo Ri is truly the savior of this drama, she takes her role seriously and is a lot of fun to watch, she’s a terrific actress.
Yeon Jung Hoon smile alone is enough to melt my heart, I am so happy for him. The child actress is honestly talented and a lot of fun to watch, they picked a talented rising star.
It’s been a while since Yeon Jung Hoon starred in a drama that got so much attention. I believe “Lies Of Lies” will continue to break records and I think it can even reach 8%, something that Channel A has never seen before.
It’ll probably also help them produce more intriguing dramas in the future, I see this as the beginning for Channel A. Personally speaking, Channel A dramas aren’t usually my pick, I always watch the premiere of their dramas but drop them shortly after, with this one, I can see huge potential.
