Thoughts: Manhole – Feels So Good (Episode 01)

SPOILERS AHEAD

Since I saw the apple pen teaser I was completely excited about this drama, I didn’t even care about the plot, I just thought the promos were amazing and I should give it a chance.

Now already watched the first episode, I’m not so sure I want to keep watching this dorama.

First we got this jerk, Pil, I guess it supposed to be this tragic but hilarious character that more than not is very pathetic but you can’t help but like him. I don’t like him at all. In all the episode he was whines and whines, I guess it supposed to be funny but it’s not. And to make matters worse, he just plain stalk the girl, Jo Si, I think it’s her name, and not just that, he slut shamed her, the worse part is that she takes his side when her boyfriend hit him. I guess, again, it was all supposed to be funny, I mean, it’s sooooo funny when a guy doesn’t take a hint and keep coming over and over, rigth

I guess what they are trying to hint is that Jo Sí girl is in love with him too, and the only reason they are not together is because he is way too slow. And I could have love that plot if it were done well.

Right now all I think it’s that Manhole: Feels so good is uncomfortable to watch.

Yes, the cast got good chemistry and they’re good actors, but I don’t like the way they are telling the story.

Scenes to look forward to: Pil getting punched, he fucking deserves it.
Episode rating: SO SO – 2/5
Favourite character: the juice girl, I don’t know what’s her name

Thoughts: Strongest Deliveryman – Episode 02


SPOILERS AHEAD

This second episode was as good as the first, except for a little detail.

Again I want to point out to the cast charisma. They just make hating them when they done something really bad, very difficult. This second episode was full of emotions, I’m not gonna lie that I got a little teary at the end. Dan Ah is one of the few characters I really could relate, that when she tore out the school brochure, really broke my heart. I was at the same place once, with all my dreams being destroyed.

You know a show got a very good writer when a second character that appears for less than five minutes, gets you really emotional when something bad happens to them.

But what I didn’t like was that homophobic scene with Dan Ah, that is a problem with all the Korean dramas, they always use the LGTBQ+ as a comic relief or something awful, as a “problem”. I’m just pointing out because it’s always the same, I hope someday that kind of thing stop. Strongest Deliveryman is just really good, I’m pretty sure they can do better

I can’t wait for the next episodes, the teasers for the next ones looks really interesting, I need to know what happens with Dan Ah y the guy whose name I can’t remember. I want to know if the kid survives.

Can’t wait

Scenes to look forward to:
Episode rating: REALLY GOOD – 4.5/5
Favourite character: The chick who ran away from her house, she’s adorable.
