1. I thought BFB is the first drama I’ve seen Daniel Choi in, but today I realized I’ve seen two other: The World They Live In and High Kick Through the Roof. I didn’t like High Kick at all, so my oblivion there is at least excused. But I actually liked his character from World (as I did most of the characters). Total face-palmed moment.
2. And then I went on to realize these two are the same person:
How do you go from cool Cho Sun to bitchy whatever-your-name-is? o_0 Now how am I supposed to continue hating you.
3. I still have the last two eps of BFB to watch, and I will watch them. B.. but… my shippy heart has shrank considerably since the last kiss they shared. I wasn’t kidding when I doubted if their level of chemistry would ever reach romantic sparks. I had my reasons and they’re well-founded (and now well-proven). The problem with many of the Korean actresses is that they’re unable to lose themselves in the role once it reaches romantic climax. They’re either too shy, or too self-conscious, that they become awkward while trying to display physical affection. And Jang Nara, Jang Nara is practically the archetype of these actresses. She thrives on her innocent childlike image so I didn’t even expect a "real" kiss.
Well, it’s been 10 years since this has happened:
(Bright Girl’s Successful Story with Jang Hyuk)
And I wouldn’t mind if they went back that route because g’dammit they were better at manipulating angles than they are now:
The noses, the noses! Go back to chaste pecks or fake angles if you must, but what was the PD thinking when he okayed this take?
