Which of these dramas are you watching?
My personal thoughts- written by Jazmine K.
I’ve just completed “More Than Friends” 3rd episode and I already dislike the male lead. I wanted to give it a chance but I can’t take it seriously with its script.
The standard jerk male lead is back with all its glory, and I don’t like it one bit. I thought we were done with the standard terrible jerk male lead who turns out to be not so terrible, but apparently, we’re not.
Ong Seong Wu is okay here as an actor but his character is intolerable. I used to find such characters cool but as I grew older, such characters no longer interest me and I think it presents a terrible idea to the young woman who might grow up to think it’s okay to be treated like shit and get dismissed because a guy is hot.
The male lead (played by Ong Seong Wu) completely dismisses the female lead feelings and continues to pester her and follow her around despite her asking him repeatedly to leave her alone. She told him she likes him a lot and can’t maintain a friendship with him but he refuses to accept that but continues to linger around.
If an average/middle-age man was to play this character, I can’t begin to imagine just how harsh everyone would be in the comments but since it’s played by a young rising hot actor, its somehow okay.
It’s weird that JTBC would okay such a script. JTBC has had a terrific year and some of the best most interesting kdramas came out from them, it’s very weird they’d air such a script on their channel considering how much they have been changing the industry. It’s the most basic of the most basic. I find it odd.
“Lies Of Lies” continues to be over-the-top and fun, I can see how the script will progress and likely end as well but I’ll continue to watch, I haven’t come this far to stop now.
In regards to “Alice,” I’ve given up. The screenwriter insistence on creating a love line between the mother and the son (even if she isn’t really his mother) is quite honestly disturbing and that’s the least I can say. I wanted to like the drama but I’ve seen many fans continuously complain about this part. I would’ve loved for their relationship to be platonic but I guess it was too much to ask for.
