Itaewon Class. 8-9
Acting: 10 👌
This would have become one of my favorites if only they had eliminated the romance. It totally dragged the drama down for me. I know this is a fan favorite to a lot, but for me it slightly missed the mark. 😅 I know the ‘are you insane’ remarks may be floating around among some minds right now. I like to think I’m not entirely crazy yet 😝, although it’s still 2020 so who knows. It’s still a drama I would at least definitely watch once. The characters are so beautifully written with so many character driven diversity, I was so impressed at first, but somewhere about midway it took a quick unexpected nose dive. It started focusing more on a love triangle which bogged it down. I really wish it was left out, especially since I thought the main leads had no chemistry 🤷♀️ Dont get me wrong the entire cast gelled together like a fine wine and the acting throughout the cast was phenomenal too especially Park Seo Joon and Kim Dami. Oof both were so good and the characters were 😘. But again I just thought I would of really liked this more if they focused mainly on Sae Ro Yi’s life, the pub Danbam, and the sub stories of the other cast, especially Ma Hyun Yi, Jo Yi Seo, and Choi Seung Keon. Did I think the drama was perfect, far from it. Should everyone give this a chance, definitely, even if it’s only for the excellent diversity of characters and stories.
fuck extracurricular what a waste of 10 hours they really killed the ONLY good character mr. lee fuck man. jisoo is the biggest fucking idiot i wouldn’t have even batted an eyelash if he died he was so annoyingly stupid and so was gyuri or whatever. there was zero development for them besides getting increasingly more fucking dumb. stupid fucking bitches that i couldn’t even feel sorry for in the end. he’s such a meek pathetic weak imbecile. god i’m furious and HE was apologizing to that other annoying fucking bitch minhee?? it was her own fucking fault for everything she was involved in and the rest of the time that rat just bitched and moaned like my god FUCK OFF. i couldnt help but LAUGH when she fell down those stairs fighting jisoo. like finally he did something right and shut her ass up. then aftee all he did was take her phone away lmfaooo fuck her, and all she did was bother mr lee too while he was alive like Ugshhdhcjcjcjc UGH fuck all of them and the bully??? her bf or ex bf whatever didnt get an ounce what he deserved i wanted him to get beat so badly too. he was so unnecessary andbsuch a piece of shit for no reason. all these characters were so poorly fucking written and the whole plot couldve been executed so much better. this wasnt the worst show but it was so frustrating and disappointing i hate everyone. except mr lee ugh they all should’ve fucking died and that dumbass bitch detective was so annoying too god bye good riddance to this fucking series
I wanted to be happy. Without losing myself, I wanted to achieve everything I want. There were difficult days. Sometimes, I was nervous and afraid. How did I get through all that? With my loved ones, I’ve led a hectic life doing what I want to do. Staying with them. Sharing my life with them. In search of happiness.
Itaewon class (2020) final episode
If I ever fell into a coma the yung spirits would never make me a counter because I have too much rage/vengeance in my heart.
Also the scope of the work is too narrow. I refuse to follow their stupid ass rules. So many characters on this show are NOT possessed by evil spirits, but they have no problem being complicit in or actively engaging in evil and immoral acts, but you’re saying I can’t go after them?? What’s the point in having these powers if you can’t do anything about it??
Yeah and surely preventing the people from doing evil acts is going to stop them from becoming evil spirits so like make it make sense
It was so satifying to see the evil mayor go down, but I also liked how Mun defended his son, just because it was the right thing to do. It’s yet another way of showing that people are complex and not 100% good or evil. Like the evil spirit they are hunting: he had a shitty childhood, so despite all, he has a soft spot for mistreated kids. This is also similar to Mun, who finally realises it’s his protective spirit that summons the Counter territory, not anger. Wigen really was full of sh@t when she accused him of being almost a murderer.
wi gen and gi ran i just?? wi gen is literally useless both of their holier-than-thou natures are so stupid and literally almost killed the entire team
and then gi ran has the audacity to get mad that mo tak would point it out
and wi gen is all like ‘so mun idk if i can trust u booboo’
like guys please you dont even have a leg to stand on and ur full of shit
Yes! Mun was reinstated and got his powers back! Though almost too late, since the other counters nearly got killed by the group of evil spirits using Mun as a hostage to lure them in.
Tell it to them, Mo-Tak! The Yung people’s stupidity almost got Mun killed, because without his powers he had no chance against the evil spirits that were known to be after him. The decision to wipe his memory, and his alone, was also monumentally idiotic, since people around him still had their memories and knew he had been powerful before, even if he was supposed to forget about it.
Even though Mun is now back on the team, I’m not ready to forgive Wigen or the rest of the Yung people for their parts in all this.
And unrelated to this, I knew the moment Mo-Tak got his memories back and he and the detective looked so happy about their ”reunion” that something bad would happen. It was explicitly said earlier in the episode that the Mayor saw her as the last loose end to be eliminated, so I was just waiting when she would be attacked/eliminated. And of course the moment she was the happiest was the time this drama chose for it.
