The Movie was great, the Drama was Better:
| || |
I came into this one pretty wary. I loved the 2010 movie and I didn't think that expanding it into a drama would be a terribly grand idea. I was entirely wrong though. I ended up watching just after I finished Monstar (sometime mid July), and am just now getting around to review it because I wanted to take my time and give it the full review it deserves. The Summer 2013 drama captures every bit of the movie's quirky charm and develops all of the characters, including several not found in the movie, much more fully, in beautifully subtle and wonderfully attractive ways. I HIGHLY recommend watching it. This is a fantastic series, poignant, adorable, every inch of fabulous imaginable. The mini-plots and arcs are carried over extraordinarily well, the side characters are fully developed and lovable, SooYoung is spunky and sweet, and every single one of the boys around her is much more than just eye-candy.
