It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a proper review for a show, and I think this one deserves the shout out. I have to admit that I only knew about My Absolute Boyfriend for two reasons: 1) It is a Korean remake of the popular Jdrama Zettai Kareshi (also translated to Absolute Boyfriend), and 2) It is a pre-produced series starring Yeo Jin-goo, Minah, and Hong Jong-hyun. I was just going to have a short peek at it when it finally landed itself a broadcast spot on SBS’ Wed-Thu slot, but here I am, waiting and having a good long thought on the issues brought up by the drama.
The most difficult thing to wait for, after a drama has aired, is probably the next episode. Oh, how hard it is to count the days until the next Monday! tvn’s 왕이 된 남자 (The Man Who Became King/ English title: The Crowned Clown) is slowly and surely out there messing with my mind and heart, but I don’t mind it at all. It’s just…a bit heart wrenching, especially after watching this week’s episodes. Do I stop watching at this point, fearing that my heart will be shattered into pieces? Most definitely not, because I have to see this until the end, be it a bitter or sweet, maybe bittersweet ending.
I think I go crazy at the mention of everything The Crowned Clown these days. If I do write recaps for the show, I might fill it with lots of my reactions (OHHHHH AHHHHH NOOOO MY HEART CANNOT FUNCTION RIGHT NOW URGH, something along those lines) instead of actually describing the happenings. I cannot express how grateful I am to have it turn out really decent and watchable, plus the time is on my side for me to watch it. The stars have aligned for me to watch this! Here’s the latest interview of our young king and resident clown, Yeo Jin-goo for February’s GQ.
