I miss watching Tell me what you saw  on weekends..:dissapointed_relieved:Tell me what I should watch....:dissapointed_relieved:

 

I started "The world of the married" - Ep 1 and 2  aired this weeked. It is the first K-Drama rated 19 that I am watching. SO far, quite gripping. Apparently it is a remake of a British drama. I am also watching "I'll go to you when the weather is nice" with Park Min Young - but it is soooooooooo slow, so it may be not to everyone's taste. Some forum users were recommending "Rugal" but since it is an OCN drama, I said no thank you very much, no more OCN dramas for me. Also a time travel drama 365: Repeat the yer. I started watching, but the first episode was too convoluted for me (I have a very short attention span, ha).

Am not gonna start rugal...cause not really a fan of Daniel Pitt :joy:..instead I’m waiting for team bulldog, ocn drama Cha Tae Hyun, JH dragon buddy :D & flower of evil. Shows like the world of the married...(psh..can’t relate so I don’t watch it) Weather is nice..I prefer thunderstorms. 365..I don’t wanna repeat my nightmares again..so I don’t think I will watch...Therefore I have nothing! So I’m devoting my time to JH’s dramas:D I’m one picky woman.

(Jokes aside they are just not my cup of tea) 

 

@Biology Lesson it’s a master. Master are always filmed one shot. Later on they will have to redo to get more shots with different angles. He looks cool..indeed..mmmm:D

I went to watch old dramas and discovered 2 of my favourites are coincidentally directed by same person who did Voice! Black and The Guest, really good. For ongoing ones I am planning to continue Memorist and Hospital Playlist. Maybe will try the 365 days one too. Oh yah and I am watching Kingdom season 2 now after bingeing season 1 over the weekend.

Heard that the World of married is good and its ratings jumped up a lot after the first ep. But from the title I don’t think it will suit me.

Thats why I keep saying it’s not the  director’s fault that many ppl here don’t like MJH’s character in Voice.     He is able to do good shows if the script is right. 

 

The guest movie by the same actors? I like KDW but not KJW.

From what I heard they were struggling to produce this they requested all the casts to come back but because they waited for too long with no script therefore they went on to do other drama projects. As of now, nothing is said already. I think they were planning to do a spin-off. The last update was about April 2019

Hmmm the thing is, its a matter of taste. I just think the Voice PD does not focus on aspects that some of us care about. But a lot of people like his dramas so I guess there are things he does well and is able to connect with a good amount of people. So I don’t say “he sucks” it’s more like “he is not my style” And of course the writing is possibly the most important factor why I didn’t like MJH. 

 

BTW Voice is now available on Netflix for the US region (It’s probably not news but I just found out) 

 

@Sushimi I didn’t like CJH too much as Daniel Pitt but he grew on me in the drama “Tunnel”. I now have a soft spot for him.

I'm with you. I didn't like The guest either. It had the same format as Voice, and at a certain point I found myself bored out of mu mind while watching it. The only show in the list that was mentioned that I liked was Black. That show even had a little bit of romance to it and was funny. So I think the writers do have a part in making this director's shows better...

I tend to have different tastes then most on here but I'm currently watching and enjoying:

The World of the Married

I'll Go to You When the Weather is Nice 

365: Repeat a Year 

Hi Bye, Mama! 

Hospital Playlist

Kingdom 2

Rugal (Not sure I'll continue this one but the first episode was okay, albeit very violent)

To be honest at the end of the day, it's entirely down to personal preference. Directors are not nessesary to be blamed even the writers, it's all just the taste buds. No matter what one say the other who doesn't like it will still dislike it and find fault in it no matter what.

 

Some might like it better with romance while others not really. To be honest, i wouldn't blame the directors or the writers(unless it's a technical fault, like the hairstyle mishap) 

 

If you ask me about voice, giving a honest feedback.

 

Voice 1 in particular they focus more on the abilites and spend little on the background stories which is typical for ocn. (They get to the chase quickly) i relatively think that MJH is okay interms of his character and his background. (As this character doesn't really need a lot of attachments because it's not exactly the main point of the story. The cases are the main point.)

 

I know this may sound off but ocn highlights alot about their villians. They would always make sure that the villian outshine the good guy then at the end of the day the good guy will dominate the villian. That's voice. They have to paint the bad guy as a strong character to present fear to the good guys. Therefore the good guys will come out as victorious/gloriously. 

 

So i am fine with it actually. It's up to the taste.

@Sushimi As a JH fan I have my very particular reasons to almost “hate” Voice lol. I watched it while it aired and there was so much hate towards JH’s character at first that it tainted my experience. I was really surprised to learn later that he actually gained new fans through Voice and that a lot of people liked him because from what I saw as initial reaction I thought everyone would be “ok” with him not returning for S2. I’m talking of course about casual viewers, not already established JH fans

 

Now, his character was loud and unlikable at first. Im perfectly ok with that, he has played obnoxious unlikable before and its typical to have both male and female characters be flawed at the beginning and then we see them evolve. Problem is, MJH didn’t change much. Sure he stopped being a burden and rebelling against the female lead but that’s all. 
 

I do not expect all dramas to focus on the leads but, Voice could’ve easily added 1 or 2 tiny scenes that indicated more bonding between him and Kang Center. Not much is required. I don’t know if you watched Secret Forest. Many people love that drama, I thought it was alright but I did like how, even though the drama focused on the case, the bonding between the leads was given some space. You honestly don’t need more than two scenes or dialogues to establish that. 

 

I bet if I wasn’t a JH fan (I prob wouldn’t watch Voice) but if I did, since I do like the crime genre in general, I would’ve just focused on victims and the killer and be ok with it. The drama’s victims were “ok” and some actually very compelling.  But being a JH fan and knowing what he is capable of, to see him constricted or actually neglected with such a shallow character that any actor could’ve played was upsetting. To see him getting hate for it was even more upsetting.

Obviously it's a matter of taste. While TMWYS was being aired, I would constantly see posts of people saying that Voice 1 was the best OCN show. So, obviously you're not alone in liking that show. I hated it, which is why TMWYS was to me  a pleasant surprise, if still not everything that I wanted. 

 

On another subject, now I understand why this specific training was a piece of cake for JH :)

Well, the ML and FL are indeed married...and the main theme of the drama is  cheating. I considered putting it in spoilers, but it becomes obvious like in the first 10 minutes of the drama, so I really hope this is not spoiling anything. But judging from the below, I am afraid our taste buds do not have the same preferences :)

I heard that Black and the Guest are OCN dramas, so big no-no for me. I could not go past the first ep of Memorist, despite me being very partial to Yoo Seung Ho. And I just gave Hospital Playlist a second go and dropped out after 1 hour 5 minutes. Two failed attempts are a clear sign for me that this particular drama is not for me...^_^

 

What is worse, I started Robbers... and stopped after 15 minutes or so.:tears:... Seriously, is there something wrong with me, not being able to focus? But no, I went through the entire 2 eps of The World of Married wihout fast forwarding even once...Maybe I should start the Voice to understand what you talk about loving/hating this show? Ok, that is what I will do now....

@corey Robbers is not an “easy sell” as far as JH dramas go. Oh Joon is unlikable, a bit repulsive at first, and the drama is old. I love it but I can totally understand when others don’t. In fact, if I recall correctly I also kinda hated it the first time I watched it. It disturbed me. Now it’s my most rewatched drama, don’t even ask me why

 

Ok, kindly remind me what else have you watched from JH? I get confused with all the stories we’ve shared. So, WOL (where you didn’t pay attention to JH), FTLY, SOGC and TMWYS is what I remember you mentioning

 

If you haven’t tried Money Flower or Beautiful Mind, those would be my recommendations. Also My Country (although I think you are watching that slowly)

It's from Beautiful Mind PD. kind like cheating husband strong wife drama I guess.

 

And KBS re-airing DOTS. Watching that while surfing the net. this drama kinda unforgettable for me except the real life drama that follow after that. haha. Song Joong Ki is only flower boy that i like but not a fan of Song Hye Kyo.

I don't deem it as liking the show. It's more on being acceptable in terms of the story flow. I don't hate it or like it too much either. Of cause the writing could have been extended for the characters, but for an ocn drama. It's okay. It's a mutual level for me with this series.^_^ 

 

Voice series tbh, was those kinds of dramas that i wouldn't watch because of that fantasy part of being able to hear is so unbelievable...But then again thought the poster looks interesting. Ultimately, i gave it a 50/50 after finishing.

Often as long as he have any new series..there will be new fans.:lol: Alot of the time, it is also based on looks too. :lol: 

 

I understand what you said on your post. Generally speaking, the story flow of the cases it's fine, but it's just that the characters should be played out more, i understand. ^_^

Memorist

I don't like the lead either:sweatingbullets:my attention span will fly to my phone..i can't (not sure why but erm..hmm) . There are times in which i can check out every series and be like "Nope." After every 5 minutes :lol: i think that's why i wouldn't touch alot of dramas outside of Ocn with the exception of some. I like it dark. ^_^

 

Ironically my most rewatched series..is a mbc rom-com:sweatingbullets:ahhh...ha...ha.....

Definitely! Some of us like romance, some like thriller, some like ghost stories, some like law genre. It's so individual. Even if we both like the same drama, we'll also have different views on why the actor did this, did that. I know I tend to blame the writer for a bad script but to some audience, it's the perfect script. Some of us like happy ending, some like sad ending, some like open ending. The ending I hate most is no ending. It just end out of nowhere that doesn't indicate if they're separated or they're together.

I couldn't endure Robbers too. It's 1 drama I'll never rewatch. I don't know is it the acting, is it JH look in there, is it what or what but I just dislike it.

 

Sometimes I ask myelf, is it I like JH or I like the characters he plays? By right, if I like JH, I should like his acting in all his work right? But I don't. I dislike Gaekju, I dislike Robbers, I dislike WOL. Or maybe I don't dislike Oh Joon, don't dislike Bong Sam, don't dislike Chil Sung, but I really dislike the drama. Haiz...how contradicting!

Agreed. I think one of the endings i got a love hate relationship with was... "So now what?" Kind of ending. Leaving the audience like...so...he is getting away scout free?:sweatingbullets: at first glance, it's great for me, but at the same time is huh for me. Sadly..it was just 10 episodes and this is how the webtoon & drama ended...so...sigh...it's okay i guess:sweatingbullets:
