Hmmm I think my biggest disappointment re Kdramas this year was Lovers in the Red Sky. I was so looking forward to it and for me it was full-on meh. 

 

haha I agree. To be honest I gave up on the first 5 minutes as I saw the red eyes and the monster.

^i was like what is this. 

 

It might have been because I was talking to @Sleepy Owl at the same time and then I figured I shouldn't continue if i'm lukewarm about the start anyway.

Damn how is True Beauty not in the worst drama endings/biggest disappointments category, I didn't have any expectations and was still let down lol, glad to see Devil Judge up there tho, the show started good and had so much potential but totally went down the drain that I didn't even bother to finish it with just one episode left.

 

Most memorable character to me is definitely Lee Dongsik from Beyond Evil who now has been added to my list of all time favorite characters thanks to the brilliant writing and Shin Hakyun's amazing out of this world performance.

Also Han Seojun as much as I hated the drama Hwang Inyeop was just incredibly charismatic as Seojun and the character on its own was just really loveable that it made you wish he was in a much better show.

I enjoyed Lovers of Red Sky because I expected it to be a fantasy a la Harry Potter. The couple is so devoted to each other, spanning years. :heart4:  Hometown Cha3 started being that sweet but then she insisted he shared his secret even though it distressed him greatly, and they had known each for less than 6 months, and dated for barely a few weeks. But all things turned right at the end.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed. Didn't watch the drama myself. What made it disappointing in your opinion?

Yes, I understood that he stole the limelight in True Beauty :kiss_wink: Looking forward to seeing Hwang In Yeop in a project with my Ji Chang Wook oppa soon. :love:

All EOs agreed on this one. :joy: We all started it because we love our EO oppa Ji Sung. Not sure if any of the EOs finished it even (maybe @Sleepy Owl and @agenth?)

 

I know I dropped it like a hot potato after 7 episodes. :unamused:

@maribella oh I agree re the second half of Hometown Chax3 — after the OTP got together, I reeallly disliked the writing especially what they did to the female lead. I just liked the first have so much; it was soooo good!

Was it the breakup and then "2 years later" a reunion? I didn't have much expectations, although I did ship the two MLs as I was more invested in their relationship than in FL.

I dropped maybe in Ep 11 or 12... before the lame kiss.

 

also I committed blasphemy. I accidentally forgot to vote for Queen

God where do I even start.

The love triangle was awful and was unnecessarily dragged until the last episode when it was clear the second lead never had a chance to begin with, even though he treated her so much better than the typical cold male lead who felt like he came straight out of a drama from 2001 acting all creepy and possesive, dude was straight up unlikeable, he got better at one point until they totally ruined him again in the end.

It also felt like they constantly had to shove it in your face who the male lead is to a point it felt suffocating, in one ep they even had him float in the air like he was ascending to heaven or something, though gotta say it was a hilarious scene, there were trying so hard to make him shine yet failed miserably imo.

So much wasted time on scenes that don't matter instead of fleshing out the characters more, the most unnecessary time skip I've ever witnessed, the female lead was so oblivious, the second leads were wasted as fuel for the main couple who honestly were just boring and made me feel nothing. 

I mean I could go on but I think that's enough lol.

That was the most pointless thing I ever seen, like what was the reason? It literally added absolutely nothing to the story that's how stupid it was.

 

And als even though I was disappointed in Devil Judge I have to say Jung Sunah was also one of the most memorable characters for me, what a queen.

Am I the only one who thought the barf drama ending was hysterical and downright amusing????? I was not disappointed. I was too busy laughing. 

Nooo I was laughing too. I remember we were all like. Wait did this just really happen? 

It's hilarious, but I remember thinking, that I wasted so much time on this, and there will be another season????? I think I'm curious, but I'd only read up on what happens, not subject myself to monologues anymore. 

 

To be honest, the monologues also were the worst and the most amusing in this series. A lot of this series is unforgettable - perv ghost, stepmother/stepson interaction, raccoon eyes, whiny ami, the moon... fridge underwear....

Honestly Hwang In Yeop outshined Cha Eun Woo, so the ML looked even more cardboard than usual.

Seriously whose idea was that, it still cracks me up and even more so when you see Seojun just lying on the ground, you know like a normal person would instead of almost being abducted by aliens.

Hwang Inyeop was the only reason I even pulled through, I contemplated on dropping the show so many times but I just couldn't because of him. He literally lit up every scene he was in and easily outshined everyone and that's also because he was the only character that had some decent writing by being the sole emotionally intelligent person in the show.

:w00t: Yes, I voted all . I know that we had to choose just five but I could not decided.  But why there was a button to all the options? It was not my fault. The funny thing, chosing all , it was automatlcally chosen none of the above option also. So technically,I voted all and none in the same time. :w00t:
