I thought in jest about writing a series called “Questionable K-Drama Male Behavior towards Females,” but I think I’m actually going to do it, and episode 13 of Spy Myung-wol is a good place to start.
Spoilers for the latest episodes, so read with discretion.
But! Dammit this scene makes me wish Han Ye-seul and Eric were acting in a drama that was less whacko, insane, illogical, and repetitive, something with a stronger story, tighter humor, and less manufactured angst. I must’ve watched it at least six times over already.
It makes me wonder how things would’ve gone if they were characters on an Athena-like show, or if Spy wasn’t a comedy from the start but a dramatic series.
I have no intention of writing this drama off, because my love for Eric gushes through my arteries and synapses and neurons and aortic valves, so no matter how bad it is, I will watch it for Eric.
But right now, it’s sitting pretty on the “pretty bad” side of things.
You have no idea how excited I am about Myung-wol the Spy, which is set to premiere on July 11th. The other night, I watched the first episode…IN MY DREAM. That’s how legit I am.
Anyway. I don’t really love the premise of the show (another spy story…) and I don’t really care for any of the second leads (I just can’t learn to like Lee Jin-wook…) but I LOVE Eric and I feel like I’m in the minority in loving Han Ye-seul, so I think a rom-com with them together is going to be so fun. I’m hoping that their chemistry is explosive because apparently for me, explosive chemistry really makes or breaks a drama for me (hence, why I’m still watching the shitfest that is Lie to Me, but have found Best Love boring).
But can I just talk about my Eric love for a second?
