Have you been keeping up with “Itaewon Class”? What do you think of it?
My personal thoughts
I just watched “Itaewon Class” and to be honest, I find I fun. Its not the best kdrama I’ve ever seen but there are elements that make it special. The center plot is corny and repetitive because its yet another drama about a low-class hero fighting a conglomerate, but the characters and their chemistry is keeping me tuned.
I didn’t expect “Itaewon Class” to become this big, but I guess people are really interested in the drama more than I thought they would. Park Seo Joon is, after all, a great actor who chooses interesting projects. Not to mention the supporting cast, they’re all amazing and I love how different and vibrant they are.
I plan on making a review of the first half of “Itaewon Class” that will be out next week so stay tuned for that.
I can’t wait to see what more records “Itaewon Class” breaks in the future. I think it can reach 20% if it kept up the pace.
