Somewhere back in April I heard about a new School drama coming out. I had to wait a whole two months to actually see the show, but I’m really seeing the potential for the new Korean drama Monstar to be a hit. I think one of the big draws for me is relatively new and fresh drama faces. Don’t get me wrong, I love the staples: and could stare at Mickey Yoo Chun and Lee Seung Gi for hours – hello gentlemen! But I really like that this one is taking the typical school drama to a whole new level and with people who really don’t have an extensive drama background at all.
Take Ha Yeon Soo for example. Who is this girl and where did she come from and why haven’t I known of her before?? That’s right she just entered the drama world in 2013! While she’s not a kpop idol and her singing was a bit forced in the classroom scene, her voice is still really adorable and her look is totally unique. I don’t know if it’s the super thick wig that they put on her or her freaking cute face – or that her character is crazy – or at least I think it is.. there’s just something about Yeon Soo.
The guys aren’t that bad looking either. It’s like a drama full of smexy good looking young appeal (noona loves you kids!) with an edginess that I haven’t really seen in a lot of Korean dramas that aren’t evil and melodramatic. That’s not saying that this one won’t turn into a melodrama – but I’m thinking more old school romantic comedy. The likes of which aren’t always haha, but more Romeo and Juliet irony. I’ve only seen one episode though, so who knows.. guess I’m just going to have to keep watching..
What do you think? Is it worth another episode???
Happy Drama Watching!!!
