Oh how I’ve tried so badly to watch this K-Drama, To The Beautiful You. I really have. I’ve pressed play like 4 different times in the past week or so, and I just can’t handle it. I had to keep pausing and I kept going “no no no no, stop, no” over and over in my head. This being said, I’ve not even gotten halfway through the first episode. I’m not saying it isn’t a good drama, and it truly does seem interesting and I want to watch it.
The problem I’m having is getting passed the fact that no one realizes Goo Jae-Hee (played by Sulli) is a girl and not a boy. It’s just not believable one bit. Obviously, this has to happen for the story of the drama and all. I just wished they would have tried a bit more to make it less obvious. Also, not saying Sulli is a bad actress, but there’s no way she would be able to pass for a boy. This really is the only obstacle I have to get through to get more into the series. It’s a big obstacle though.
Spoiler starting here if you haven’t seen it! I can’t believe she wasn’t questioned more when Kang Tae-Joon (played by Minho) found her girly underwear when everything fell out of her suitcase on her way up all of those stairs to the school. That was just ridiculous. I also can’t believe those were even in her suitcase to begin with! It’s just ridiculous. If I were going to be trying to pass as a guy, I would at least pack all boxers! End of Spoiler.
Now that I got that out of my system…I will try to get back to this drama. Like I said, it does seem interesting, so I want to watch it. Also, Minho is in it, and I’ve never seen his acting before. I figured might as well test this one out (two birds with one stone, yeah?).
Will update if I watch more!
