Well, I guess this just shows how one’s “mileage may vary.” And, no mater how hard I try, I’ll probably never completely understand the Korean way of thinking.
Though it may be the #2 rated show in Korea, I think “My Too-Perfect Sons,” is a real turkey, brimming with slapstick nonsense that isn’t even worthy of the Three Stooges. And I think that the top-rated show in Korea, the SBS drama “Brilliant Legacy,“ is just an everyday nice-poor-girl meets selfish-rich-boy kind of drama show. Not awful, but nothing remarkable, either. Maybe it’s pulling in the ratings because the lead actor (Lee Seung-gi) is something of a Bi lookalike, and the young female audience is digging it. I don’t know.
I can’t dispute the fact that my opinions are in the minority, though!
I'm following 3 other dramas...lighthearted stuff via The Man Who Cant Get Married and the heavier stuff via Queen Seon Deok and Swallow The Sun.I'm finding them all good in their own way.
Back to watching My Too Perfect Sons on the weekends tho'..... ;D It's a perfect way to wind down after 5 days of focussing on the CME.LOL
My "mileage' shouts out to me that this drama is all about FAMILY and caring for ones loved ones.It's not just blood-related families but also about acquired families and friends.There are so many wonderful examples of this.For example,complete opposites in character;Granddad and Brutus.Granddad has really passed on some brilliant bits of fatherly advice to him.It's so amazing to see how Brutus has changed because of Granddad's fondness of him.Another example is Mari and introverted Jinpung.She's managed to bring out the love and kindness he stores in his heart.The list goes on....anyway,we shall continue to enjoy.
