I didn't think my brain could even coherently write anything after the rollercoaster that was Circle. I still don't, in fact.
Excitement and adoration.
Daily dramas are one of the toughest genres to get interested in: they're slow, they're often melodramatic, and there are a lot of episodes to keep on top of. But they're also refreshing, they're a constant thing each day that you spent 20-30 minutes on, and, despite the overly dramatic content sometimes, they're probably the most realistic when they centre on families.
I don't often write glowing reviews but I don't think I could find a single uncomplimentary thing to say about this drama.
Hyun Jae, an adorable, vain idol from the '90s, travels to 2017 by falling down some stairs during a typhoon.
Cute, fluffy, and quite distinctly lacking in actual asshole characters.
They stepped up and took hold of the lack of conclusion - in that way, it was conclusive.
I can safely say I've never seen such a good Korean crime drama.
A realistic look at what so many people are having to deal with in young adult life.
Early misgivings, a brief synopsis, a short summary of my feelings, and some (rather biased) pros and cons...
