This is my final verdict. Nothing will change even after I watch the last episode (it didn't). The simple fact is this drama lacked a lot of luster. There was no real conflict. It's like The Musical: a spree of sub-plot paraphernalia. The focus was too geared toward the love-lines, that they lost the essence that made DH1 so great. It wasn't the romance, but the hunt for the Dream and catching it. The underdog growing and taking over. Sadly DH2 failed to present that. I wasn't moved. In fact I feel Haesung had too many tears. The writers tried to make up for that with the ending, trying to put in some "meaning", but no. The most touching part was in the beginning, when JYP was forced to live in the attic. It DIDN'T suck, BUT it didn't go anywhere. It was flat, and a bit lost. And everyone turned nice and switched love interests way too fast.
FREAK YES!!! FINALLY
For Love and All It's Glory, For Drama and All It's Quirks: Why did it take me this long to watch this drama? Well, you know what they say, better late then never. This drama is pretty standard. I'm a sucker for a good cheese fest and cliche party when it comes to dramas. What I love is that this particular one does it in such a fun and exciting manner. I love how you are slightly tossed back and forth between eras, trying to solve this not-so-mystery of sorts. The characters are just the way I like them, set in stone. You know who to love (the dopey boys), and who you wish would just fall off a cliff (Evil bitches). The main couple was just a joy to watch. It gave me this reminiscence of Seeking Love/Creating Destiny couple. To conclude this entirely too long spiel (mianhae). I just want to say watch this drama. It's funny. It's irritating (in the best kinda way). It's moving. It's just a JOY to watch. Don't miss out. You will regret it.
