Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by DB Staff
So, what are we all watching this week?
What kept you reaching for more (or agonizing when there was no more), and what made you want to throw your remote through the screen? Time to weigh in…
Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: With only a couple of weeks left to go, and a time jump out of the way, I’m really happy with how the show is handling all of its many characters. I love the hair salon ajummas more than I ever expected I could, and even my least favorite character is someone I find endearing. I found Dr. Cha insufferable at first, but the dodosolsollalasol reveal and his explanation to Lala on how her graduation performance touched him was so sweet and perfectly understated. That said, I don’t like him enough to hop off the Lala-Joon ship, so I hope this week’s closing scene was some sort of high-concept performance art.
Start-Up: Every episode knocks me back emotionally, and I still can’t quite wrap my head around how perfectly pieced together Start-Up is. The sweetness and the swoon, the nerds and the dimples, it’s almost too much to handle.
Currently weecapping: Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, Start-Up
More Than Friends: It’s been a rough week for my binge-watching dramas, because while I’m still enjoying this one and willing to let our strange little love un-triangle continue to play out, I really can’t bear the friend’s side plot with the mother dying of cancer. Be gone heartbreaking, illness-related plot arc!
Lies of Lies: Similarly, I had been saving up the last few episodes of this show, because I’m dying to binge right through it and learn the secret behind the murder etc. etc. etc.! (I love revenge melos!) But I really can’t bear Woo-joo’s sudden life-threatening illness and need for an organ transplant. I see why you are necessary for maternity reveals and important factoids but… Be gone heartbreaking, illness-related plot arc!
