I can't believe our nightly masochistic exercise is finally over! Yet we'll miss it ... The last couple of episodes felt pretty rushed, as if they had to condense 5 scripts into two and JN and SY were irritating to the bitter end, although they didn't name the baby Sukjong at least. Binka is cute, but seems a little slow on the uptake like her parents, but cute enough to get away with it.
After watching the last four daily dramas, I'm not sure that format can ever really work too well, though all of the shows had their saving graces:
OMR - Lady Choi from JG played the evil aunt
The child-raising scenes were very funny
PC - Jinkook's ringtone was "Smoke on the Water"
The Archfiend from AOW as Jinsoo's art teacher
MSMD - Mijung (Yang Mi Ra) Put her and Kim Sungeun (Haein) in the same drama and well buy the DVD!
The elders' dating scenes (with the grandfather from Who's My Love?) were cute. We loved "The Bear Song" that Jaemin sang for Himchan. Also, the fan boards for MSMD were very lively and were much more thoughtful, funny and well-writtenthan the actual show!
So, as we bid goodbye to BB, we'll miss Haein and KJ and their parents, our laughing at how bad SY's HMO must be and our gritting our teeth at the banal dialog. But life is like that. "Sometimes I'm happy and sometimes I'm sad" and "every four seasons all that had happened but another year passed and I thought that life was like that." Jongnam actually suggested that SY catch their homeymoon plane instead of going to the hospital because "if we have the baby on the plane, we'll get to fly for free forever" or something like that. Yet we'll miss it. I can't explain it.
Thanks everyone, for your funny and interesting insights - it was nice to see a lot of you last weekend at the Korean Street Festival!
