7 1 This episode revealed the fruit of Color Bar’s efforts and it was some tasty fruit indeed. Our band of misfits got over the division that came fast and furious in episode 6 and managed to deliver a performance that made the All for One trio-of-people-I-want-to-punch think twice about their innate and unbeatable “talent”. 7 2 The relationships that seemed on the verge of breaking last episode (due to that green eyed monster), namely Seol Chan and Se Yi and NaNa and the world, found a foundation of mutual understanding this episode. The origin of NaNa’s shame came out as her reality was unraveled- what she wanted to keep hidden became known by the few people of her age she seems to have ever semi bonded with. The big reveal was shockingly delivered via a bunch of thugs’ fist fighting high school students outside a bar. 7 3 I hated seeing NaNa weep as she continuously reminded herself that her newfound friends must hate her now that they know the truth. All of which made Sun Woo and his visit to her fashionista hideout that much more powerful- he wants her as a friend (this noona is pulling for girlfriend but hey, I will take what I can get) because she is the Nana he knows. Sure, she may have parents that are employed in unsavory ways but that is not who she is. Loved it. 7 4 Se Yi and her naivety (I think self-denial is a better word for it) was cured as she began to understand that maybe, just maybe, she liked Seol Chan. I love how he called her out for being spacey during their hip hop math class (which, the idea and execution of hip hop learning was completely hilarious to watch but oddly engrossing). It took an honest talk with Ahjussi for Se Yi to really consider why she felt the way she did. With our leads starting to understand who they really like and why they really like them I see interesting scenarios ahead. While I doubt we will see a Na Woo / Seol Yi couple double date anytime soon I shudder in delight at the prospects of these characters understanding where their hearts really lie and why. 7 5 There were two scenes in this episode that had me laughing so hard my two dogs stared at me like I was a mad woman. The scene where Seol Chan, so upset in his jealousy and feelings towards Se Yi, asked manager Hyung to hit him was hilarious. I loved how he followed his answered request up with “Why did you hit me- now I am crying!” Haha. It hurts to be in love Mr. Star, even more so when you start requesting punches in the face just so you can cry about how poorly it is going. 7 6 The second scene that tickled my funny bone was the moment viewers found out what Seol Chan did with the “fighting” note Se Yi gave him. When you are an idol you do not just tuck a note from your crush in your sock drawer. Nope…you have it framed! I think I am still laughing. 7 7 Now that our competition has commenced it will be interesting to see where the next five episodes take us. I see great, ensemble cast things in Color Bars future. After all, Monstar is not really a story about a high school battle of the bands. It is about a band of misfits figuring out how to fit in, not with the popular kids but with each other. Which is another reason I love this show.   More from the MONSTAR Drama Club: Episode 7: [ Part 1 ] [ Part 2 ] [ Part 3 ] [ Part 4 ] Episode 6: [ Part 1 ] [ Part 2 ] [ Part 3 ] [ Part 4 ] Episode 5: [ Part 1 ] [ Part 2 ] [ Part 3 ] [ Part 4 ] Episode 4: [ Part 1 ] [ Part 2 ] [ Part 3 ] [ Part 4 ]
