FIRST IMPRESSION: Pinocchio Episode 1 & 2


Alright. I just finished watching Pinocchio, and it’s actually much better than I expected, which is a good thing. I heard that there was a back-story, and I was really reluctant to watch it because I’m just generally tired to watching dramas with childhood portions. However, the back-story was way better than I expected, and its the best part for me.

I’m not doing any recaps – just a short discussion and my first impression. You can find recaps at dramabeans or koalasplayground 🙂

*Discussion will include spoilers.

Not that I’m saying it’s good he’s dead, but in terms of story-wise, it’s a really good plot, though it’s sad.

The public is still unaware of this fact, and no one found his body yet – and I can’t imagine the horror when they actually find the body. All those people who pointed fingers at them and accused them. What about the hurt and damaged done to the Ki Family? Because of those rumors, an honorable dad became a suspect and a mother committed suicide.

However, finding his dead body only means that he didn’t run away. It doesn’t prove that he didn’t instruct the others to enter the building. I wonder how the three factory workers will actually play a part in the later episodes – so that people know the truth behind what happened. And who will be the one to find out the truth?

But where did that Dal Po go to 😦 ?

It’s not that I want him to hold a grudge against her and treat her badly – but I thought it would be more realistic if he had grown up, distancing himself from her. I mean, at that age, after losing your mom and dad – even though In Ha has nothing to do with it, I can’t imagine how they could grow up in a normal relationship.

It’s really the only thing I have an issue with. It’s not bad, or anything – it’s just that I don’t really like the fact that romance is already blooming. Can’t we get to that later?

I actually want more character developments, rather than OTP developments – because plot-wise, I find it very intriguing and interesting and I wouldn’t want the romance to spoil it.

However, I feel like he’s going to plot revenge or something – please don’t do that drama? Please?

Okay – anyway, so next week (maybe?) we can see them being reporters and… I wonder what awaits us?

These two episodes was actually very good, and I wouldn’t want anything to spoil it. The thing I’m actually afraid of is the leads being reporters, working on countless boring cases, falling in love, and somehow the past issue comes to light and then the couple break-up, and brother revenge, etc….

Please don’t go that makjang with me drama?

I probably be thinking too much. Hahahahaha.

Anyway, shall look forward to the next episode 🙂

Oh just a side comment though – I really can’t wait to get that hideous hair off Lee Jong Suk, and was Park Shin Hye’s voice all along like this?
