I’m not around much anymore because I’m busy spending every day sitting on my ass, methodically erasing Oh! Master from my mind, and waiting for Lee Min-ki and Kim Ji-won to confirm for My Liberation Diary.

    Have you by any chance seen the 2005 LMK drama “The Path to Glory”? Viki popped it up just recently…

      Whaaaat? Is that Taereung National Village??

      It is! Looks like Kocowa just added it. Uh, interesting name change.

      It’s a minidrama (8 episodes, I think?) and was his first lead role (excluding drama specials). It was his first time working with PD Lee Yoon-jung, who also did The Lies Within, as well as his first time working with Lee Seon-kyun, who he reunited with in Romantic Island and who he’s still friends with today. You’re welcome for this useless trivia knowledge.

      Oh, it was also his first time working with Song Ha-yoon, who he later did a music video with!

        It’s interesting to see all those actors 16 years younger.

        And the drama was quite watchable.

      Oh God, isa, it’s bad. It’s bad in a way that you would never be able to imagine. Bad bad.

      1-2 had me skeptical but I thought it could be fun, 3-4 had some nice moments that I really liked, 5-6 had me MELTING thinking “I WILL GO DOWN WITH THIS SHIP”, but then 7-8 had me going ughhh and then 9-10 was WHAT THE HELL and then 11-12 made me ragequit and hearing about 13-16 made me laugh and cry at the same time who allowed the writer to do this

      WHAT A WASTE OF SUCH FANTASTIC CHEMISTRY GPD DAMN they had some niiiiice kiss scenes too (minus the forst one, which was badly directed) AND THEY RUINED IT ISA!!!! THEY RUINED IT!!!!

        But Mindy….its LMK! Its LMK! It cant be that bad!

        I feel like I want to pat you on the head and say itll be ok sweetpea. But thats condescending and rude. So Ill restrain myself.
        But I will say! I just dont understand. This very thing is happening with SIGs drama. The writers/directors have everything that they need to make a stellar drama. The acting is there. The talent is there. The concept was good enough to get made. Why cant they pull the trigger make a good drama, dang it?

          It CAN, though, isa. But it’s fine because his next drama will be great!

          Doom at Your Service is actually a better drama than Oh! Master but uh low bar, and actually I find Doom to be incredibly boring whereas at least Oh! Master made me feel things. Most of the time they weren’t good things but…

            Oh…Doom is another Drama Fail. I fell asleep watching it, woke up an ep and a half later and didnt kbow or care what I missed. Nothing makes sense. Make it make sense. Thats all make it make sense!
            Id rather hate watch a drama then watch a mostly harmless boring drama. Ots fun to get your blood boiling and blow up your fanwall with how much you hate it. Doom just makes me sleepy. Not even watching SIGs interesting face can save it.

            I told myself I would never drop a LMK drama so this one was just paused until I wasnt so slumpy but daaaaang.

      it’s bad in the way that had me dropping a LMK/Nana drama because it was stupidly bad. Lee Min-ki and Nana with on fire chemistry, and I dropped it bad. Seriously, how do you mess that up? They literally would have done better to rip up the script and just let us watch LMK and Nana do anything else but what they actually made them do.
