First, the preview of Episode 7. Didn't I say that he's gonna change his hairstyle once he gets to college? And it's the type I love too! I hate it going all straight and lanky on a guy, although on hyung.. any hairstyle will inexplicably turn out to look nice. But this new one suits hyung better IMHO. The superficial fangirl in me rejoices.. yeay!!
Back to the business at hand..
Let's just admit it here.. if not anywhere else. Playful Kiss has the pace of a japanese dorama. Well, at least the j-doramas I like to watch anyway. I guess the Korean viewers have been fed with a different fare that makes them unable to respond favourably to the drama. For everyone who's been complaining about the drama progression, I can tell you that up to Episode 6.. it has followed the anime storyline very faithfully.
Which is good news to us Itazura na Kiss anime fans, but not really for the rest of the Korean TV-drama-watching population. I wonder what the production team was thinking when they decided to model the drama after the anime. They should have known their market better, right? O wellz..
Anyway, I love the drama. But I'm currently having an emotional time reading about the rating it is getting. Playful Kiss fans, and the rest of the cast and production team of course, are facing a very possible crisis here. And that is of the drama dissolution. Will MBC play its rather common game of ditching a nonperforming drama in the lurch with Playful Kiss too? Time will tell.
People are hoping that it'll pick up its rating next week since Baker King has ended yesterday (I think). It seems people are forgetting that Runaway is gonna replace Baker King and Rain the actor already has a stable fanbase compared to hyung-chan.
Maybe I should just turn off Google and get on with my study/work. Meh.
