Day 15: Drama that you watched in full, but was a waste of your time in retrospect.
This one’s a little bit hard, actually. I’m normally very good about dropping shows I no longer enjoy. I’ve already expressed a bit of my distaste for Big Man, so I don’t want to rag on it again. But there is one other drama I wish I hadn’t watched…
Who Are You? My qualms with this drama do not lie with Taec’s acting, believe it or not. I’ve never found him to be truly lacking in that area–rather I thought he acted better than his female counterpart for this drama. He portrayed an earnestness and a love for her that I never quite got from her (although she was better in the flashbacks… with the second lead?) More than anything, it was just the execution of the plot that I felt lacked finesse. And they utterly wasted their second lead (Kim Jae Wook), who I later learned even chose this as his comeback project. I could see the terrific acting chops of this guy in the flashbacks and the beginning–I love him–and then he did nothing more than beckon soulfully for the rest of the drama. He never even woke up to contend for his girl! I was utterly disappointed. I’ve watched some good “I see dead people” dramas, and this wasn’t one of them. Sorry, Who Are You, I now regret knowing you. (Ooh, I cringed at that pun.)
