Pinocchio keeps winning me over with each new episode, and I continue to be surprise at how good the drama is. Then again, it’s the same writer of ‘I Hear Your Voice’ so it’s totally understandable.

Honestly, I wasn’t very excited about the drama because despite liking all the leads, I really wasn’t ready to watch Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye again. The bad memories from Dr Stranger and Heirs is too deep-rooted for me to let go of their roles in those dramas.

And even though I like Park Shin Hye, and believe she’s a good actress, I always find her roles very similar and felt that she is not branching or trying out new or different roles. Surprisingly, I really like her role here, and I hope she pick good projects like these in future.

What makes this drama really good for me is that they don’t keep secrets till the very last. The fact that Dal Mo is Ha Myung, or the fact that Song Cha Ok, In Ha’s mother, was one of the indirect causes for the tragedy of Dal Po’s family – the drama manages to reveal these to the other characters in the drama, which is one of the best thing about the drama.

Most dramas like to keep everyone in the dark and only reveal it when the drama is near the end, but for Pinocchio, each new episode seems to reveal another new thing, and it keeps the drama interesting and unpredictable.

In which direction will the drama move forward to always keep me at my toes, because I have no idea either – and that’s a good thing.

It still makes me sad that Jae Myung has turned into a murderer, because all I want is for him and Dal Mo to live happily together again, living normal lives.

Another good thing about the drama is that it keeps the romance very subtle. It doesn’t overshadow the main point of the drama, or the main plot.

Just one thing though – I hope Lee Yubi’s character get more scenes, or a little more depth and development. She’s great, but as of now, her character doesn’t hold much significance to the drama plot, and I’m sad because I love her and she’s awesome.

Putting all of those aside, this drama has a lot of picture-perfect scenes. Hahahah🙂

  1. I agree with everything you said. The drama itself does have the same cheesy and sometimes predictable k-drama flair that sometimes gets annoying (but that’s why I watch k-dramas), but it also has it’s own unique touch and I actually feel like there is really good chemistry between the actors unlike in Dr. Stranger, which was pretty low for me as well. Your discussions are always great, I love reading them. Take care!🙂

  2. Pinocchio is my new drama-love! I love everything about it from the script to the leads to the visuals to the music. Also like you said how it goes very fast-paced and doesn’t spend like 10 episodes on one issue! In the most recent ep my fav moment has to be when In Ha put her mother in place in the conference cause Park Shin Hye did it so realistically and I love the way that the writer’s meanings in the early eps have so much influence to the characters afterwards. Anyway to much raving, all in all love the drama and pray it stays that way in the 2nd half!

    • YESSSS!!!! I think we can safely put our trust in the writer. AND YES THAT MOMENT WHEN IN HA WENT UP AGAINST HER MOM WAS JUST FANTASTIC!!!!!
