30 Days Drama Challenge
Day 8: Worst NOTP

I thought I would skip on today’s challenge because I’ve been lucky enough to drop dramas with potentially problematic OTP long before it reached the half point. And then I remembered that one drama where I did my hardest defending and cheering for the OTP, only for the lead male to go on a nonsensical year-long separation with all communication cut out. Then he came back to his one and only love all convinced that losing life is preferable than living with disability. Like, WHAT?!?! Yes, I’m talking about you two, Yeo-reum and Soo-yeon from Fox Bride Star. That was the first time I balked at the finale eps reunion, shouted “No!” to my screen, then proceeded to write long angry rant and un-favorite that drama from my shows page.


(Yeah, I’m also crying, Yeo-reum, but definitely not out of joy.)

    Yeah…I literally just did not watch the last episode because this drama devolved into nonsense and I was so mad at all the wasted potential.

      I quitted on episode 15. Then realized it was episode 15 and basically FF the whole final episode.
      I hated this so much. I hated ML so much.
      The β€œone year later” didn’t make sense (well, like anything in the show did 🙄).
      I have anger issues with this show.

        SAME. I watched episode 15, saw the fanwall the next day and noped out of the last episode. I was like, I do not need to waste an hour on this nonsense. I did watch a few clips of the security couple on youtube, but that’s it. This drama was such a trainwreck by the end that I was sad that these amazing actors were stuck with such nonsense.

          This drama was the literal definition of Thematic Suicide. It just blew a giant frakking hole in everything it implied it was going to do and could’ve done and it wasn’t JBL or Radiant Office, that kept the heart of their stories despite the rocky finish, at least not for me; FBS just obliterated the whole thing with that ending.

    Security Couple was the only OTP.

      Kim Kyung Nam was the main reason I finished this drama.

    I’m still mad at this drama. What COULD have been. My girl Chae Soobin deserved better. Ironically, it’s probably one of her better rating dramas to date.
