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…
Currently weecapping: Police University
The Great Shaman Ga Doo-shim: Episode 6 for the win! I really liked our face-off with the evil spirit in this episode. Doo-shim and Woo-soo continue to be awesome brave kids, and I love their burgeoning teamwork as much as I love Woo-soo’s readiness to give out the warmest hugs. Widening the story to the conspiracy within the school/administration made a lot of sense, too. But boy I loved the emotion they were able to pack in there this week, from Il-nam hearing the truth from Doo-shim and grieving over his father, to Woo-soo being super sweet and swoony. It’s a good drama that can get you to feel stuff in a tiny 15-minute episode.
Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha: I was slightly disappointed by this premiere. The setup is there, as is the promise of cuteness, but it didn’t have the immediate pizzazz I was hoping for. I love Shin Mina here, but she was a bit stereotypically harsh towards the “rural” life. Kim Sun-ho looks great, but his kindness towards others and his harshness towards her didn’t make that much sense (unless they’re going for the idea that he was trying to hide his attraction?). Either way, I really like Shin Mina’s running outfit hehe, despite the halmoni outrage.
The Great Shaman Ga Doo-shim: I’m glad to see Doo-shim being more proactive, even if it’s begrudgingly. She and Woo-soo make a good pair, so I’m looking forward to them going after this spirit together. I’m curious to know what the principal’s deal is – how did he get involved and what’s his end game?
Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha: It’s cute so far, but it hasn’t quite hooked me yet. I like Shin Mina and Kim Sun-ho enough to stick with it for a bit longer to see if it grows on me.
