for a revenge drama, 1st episode is super funny.. so that trailer makes it seem that the other student jumped off the roof, died/paralyzed and jo boah was the witness.

hmm.. even if they faked it, ultimately the second guy did get hurt .. and clealry jo boah must have done it because of money for grandmom

1. [+591,-43] Jo Bo Ah is pretty. 

2. [+369,-12] Everything's fine except that they used 
too much filters. Just adjust that. I hope Seung Ho becomes a hit. 

3. [+258,-14] Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah who came out directly from comics, their combination is good. 

4. [+233,-14] It's fun. Got to watch this on Mondays and Tuesdays. 

5. [+141,-13] It's so interesting. I was reminded of my school days too.

10. [+49,-1] Seung Ho-ya, why are you so handsome? 




Article: Naver 'My Strange Hero' Yoo Seung Ho jumps into the sea to save his first love,Jo Bo Ah

I didn’t know what to expect of the show given the strange premise but the first episode is promising! 


Helps a lot that YSH is such a doll. Love his smile and how his eyes crinkle! Brings back some INAR feels for me. 


Also I thought a lot of the scenes are filmed beautifully with really nice compositions. Perhaps a tad much with the filters but I didn’t quite mind it. 


Looking forward to the second episode tonight!! Hope the show will be well received here and everywhere else!

Finally got the chance to catch up.  First impressions from Ep1&2.  I like it. :)  YSH and his puppy dog eyes and beautific smile...ahh... :wub: JBA matches him well...fresh faced, feisty and opinionated.  To be fair though, even though his eyes don't take up as much real estate on his face when compared to hers, I cannot help but feel he makes up for it with the emotions behind them...he trumps her when it comes to delivering emotively when it comes to 'eye' acting.  She's decent but when placed next to him, she pales in comparison.  This is NOT a criticism, just an observation and purely a personal opinion.


Did you catch it?  The curtains/drapes/hair - as the zephyr catches them...just so.  Significant revelationary moments between the OTP.


1. As he dashes out with the bride, she runs ahead and her veil flutters...just as SooJeong walks past and he catches a glimpse of her...sending him back to the past.


2. The moment when he first realizes she means something more to him in the classroom...the classroom drapes flutter in the background.


3. He puts his hand on his chest when at his desk at home - be still my heart... Dare I say it... A heart flutter...


4. The school sick bay bed...the drapes between the beds flutter and partially covers her face as she says her parting words...and he tells his Friend who comes in after, "My heart has been extracted." 


5. When she naps on the desk on the top floor of the school (?) and the wind catches her hair which partially covers her face and he runs his fingers/hands gently across her forehead to part her hair :wub:


6. The wind in their faces whilst on his motorbike together.


Heart flutter moments.


Finally, there's that parallel scene.  These 3 will be linked somehow I feel...

1. The moment on the top of a building when they talk about dreams and he reveals his is to become her boyfriend.  He is standing on the railing then and she hits him causing him to tumble off...and her reverie is broken by the student Yeung Min coming for a Counselling session.


2. She is on the bridge railing talking to Yeung Min and she falls off with him in tow.  Only to be saved by BokSoo...once again her 'reverie' is broken.


Hope I get the time to catch up with Ep 3&4 later today or tomorrow.  :)

[My Strange Hero] Eps 3 & 4 spoilers, Yoo Seung Ho x Jo Bo Ah x Kwak Dong Yeon



Article: Naver 'My Strange Hero' Yoo Seung Ho, decides to take revenge on Kwak Dong Yeon, 'returns as a repeat student' 

1. [+371,-1]
Yoo Seung Ho's gaze is no joke. Whenever I see his eyes, I can't turn away. 

2. [+187,-3]
To be honest, I think it's absurd. ㅋㅋㅋ But it's fun. 

3. [+109,-0]
Yoo Seung Ho made my heart throb at the end. 

4. [+42,-1]
Seung Ho was framed. Let's take revenge [Bok Su] next week~ 

5. [+35,-0]
Yoo Seung Ho's acting is really good......... His acting when he's funny, and when he's being framed.... it's needless to talk about Cheon Ho Jin and Kim Mi Kyung.....  Anyway, this drama is interesting. 

6. [+30,-0]
The story.. Anyway, I'm watching for Yoo Seung Ho. 

7. [+26,-0]
He matches school uniform so well that I'm surprised. ❤️

8. [+24,-0]
His eyes did everything. The God of acting, Yoo Seung Ho~

9. [+19,-0]
It's fun. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Firstly, it's so heart fluttering. 




Article: Naver 'My Strange Hero' Yoo Seung Ho returns to school to take revenge on Kwak Dong Yeon and Jo Bo Ah 

1. [+90,-3]
Yoo Seung Ho's acting is so good, he has the power to lead a drama. 

2. [+52,-1]
Today's episode was good too~~ 

3. [+42,-1]
He looks warm, his personality and acting skills are good, the only thing he lacks is a good eye in picking scripts. It seems like he picked a good script this time. I'm happy. 

4. [+42,-1]
Why is it so interesting?? Time flew by too quickly. 

5. [+35,-0]
'Bok Su is back' [t/n: literal title of this drama] on Mondays and Tuesdays. 

6. [+14,-0]
It's already interesting just by seeing Yoo Seung Ho's face. To add, the couple here isn't like Park Bo Gum-Song Hye Gyo/ Kim Yoo Jung-Yoon Gyun Sang, that have wide age gaps. The leads in here are so fresh. 

7. [+14,-0]

Seung Ho is becoming more handsome. Ah, what do I do~~
Cr : melohwa
@nrllee he got called the god of acting by koreans and 70 % of comments are about his acting. His eyes and gaze are his biggest assets. As a k-drama for almost a decade, I have  found out actors like him are rare. Only a handle of them exists. I will watch properly episodes 1,2,3 and 4 tomorrow. I havent had the time. 
Your analysis is spot on !

MBC’s “Less Than Evil” is holding on to its top spot in Monday-Tuesday drama viewership ratings!

According to data released by Nielsen Korea on December 12, the latest episode of “Less Than Evil” that aired on December 12 enjoyed nationwide average ratings of 7.3 percent and 8.7 percent for its two parts. Though this is a slight dip from the previous episode’s ratings, the drama has managed to keep hold of its top spot in its time slot.

I love Yo Seung Ho and have been waiting for this drama.  The 1st and 2nd episode are fun to watch.  I'm glad the rating is starting well. The leading lady is also okay with me.  They look good together.

Ep 3&4


More flutter moments


Drapes flutter again in the school hallway as BokSoo gets taken back in time after his old teacher confronts him and tells them his life is intertwined with SooJeong's.


When she kisses him, the wind catches her hair again and causes it to 'flutter'


And that poem that she recites as he watches her from behind...so beautiful that it demands a replay


It was at that age, the poem came to me.

I don't know, I don't know where it came from.

If it's from the winter or the pond.

I don't know when and where it came from.

No it wasn't a voice, nor a word.

It was not silence either.  I didn't know what to say.

My lips could not form a name for it, my eyes were blinded.

And something started in my soul.

And like that, my heart fluttered in the wind.


He had no words to write as she recited the poem.  Instead he drew a picture of her reciting.  So he responded exactly as she had recited in the poem...and drew a wordless picture of her because she was the source of the stirring in his heart...she had caused his heart to flutter in the wind.


And the final scene in Ep4.  The curtains flutter again in the staff room as SooJeong draws them back, she sees BokSoo striding across the School field making his comeback to school.


I also feel like there's some metaphor happening with regards to how he seems to always be placed 'behind' her during their time in school together.  He sits behind her in class, he is behind in his studies, he rides on her back in the school race, she draws in the front of the page (her award certificate for him) whilst he draws behind the page.  But now in the present, he's the one who 'has her back'.  He is working behind the scenes to 'help' her with the scammer, getting her into a full time position at the school.


SeHo is an interesting character.  There's more to it than him being pure evil.  I feel like he's somehow misdirected his jealousy or he lacks the will to live somehow and he finds enjoyment in proving his worth by putting BokSoo down (toying with him keeps him amused).  To be confirmed of course, just my first impression of him. :)
