I've tried really hard for this slight obsession not to bleed into my Kdrama watching, and for the most part I've been successful mostly because I don't think I've found any true musicals a la Rent or Sweeney Todd, but what I have found are dramas dealing characters wanting to be successful in the music industry, unfortunately, none of them work in a skanky bar with scantily dressed women. Three of my favorites are Heartstrings, You're Beautiful and Shut Up Flower Boy Band.
|Ok, yes this one is my all time favorite .... ever.|
The best thing I can say about it is that it was cute and short. They cut the drama down to 14 episodes so I saved two hours of my life. Hooray. I would even venture that I kinda liked it. The lead played by Ko Eun Ah was great, the music was pretty okay. The only things were that I have no idea how they thought she was a guy with big ole boobies that she had even after they were taped down, and it had the most awkward kisses ever to grace dramaland. We are talking Heartstrings awkward, but there were more than one. You'd figure they would learn how to kiss after the first one, or they would be more comfortable doing it after the first kiss, but no every kiss in the drama was deer in headlights kiss. Shudder.
