POV DISCUSSION: Bel Ami (Pretty Man) Episode 5 & 6

I think the key to enjoying this show is to to expect nothing, and just watch it for the cute. I’m not sure if this is a direct adaptation on the manhwa, or just loosely based on it, but whatever it is – it’s not an original writing – thus all hopes of plot twists, or story plot cannot be changed. That’s a little upsetting because as I watched the show, I wanted more and more, but I don’t think the drama will deliver all those hidden hopes for me. Haha.

I’m not really sure if I’ll stick around this drama for long, because despite the cute and unique characters, I’m not sure how the drama is going to turn out. It might be more fun, or might be boring. One thing for sure, I love Bo Tong with David. OMG. SO CUTE.

Anyway, I thought we were done with the socks – but it looks like it’s sticking around for some time. They’re not going to drag the socks all the way till the end, right?

POV DISCUSSION: Bel Ami (Pretty Man) Episode 3 & 4

This is a pleasant surprise. I didn’t like the first two episodes that much, but Episode 3 & 4 managed to win my heart.

I love the electric fairy! I hope that she’s not in the drama only temporary, and hopes she stays right till the end. I don’t know if she really have supernatural powers or not, but she’s a lot of fun to watch. It’s nice to see her making Yura angry as well, and doubt her own beliefs. She seems entangled with everyone and I like it because it sorts of give a mysterious vibe. Hah.

She clearly knows that Ma Te is doing this because of Yura, but even though she tries to control herself, she can’t help but to fall for him. So cute.

Anyway, I’m a little sad that Jaek Hee is gone 😦 She was really a nice character! Besides that, Choi David is such an adorable male version of Bo Tong!!! He’s so cute!!! I’m actually shipping him and Bo Tong together 🙂 Of course, it’s so obvious that Bo Tong is going to end up with Ma Te anyway. Wasted.

So in short, as long as drama continues this way, I might really fall heads over heels with it 🙂 Love the unique characters in it 🙂

 

POV DISCUSSION: Bel Ami (Pretty Man) First Impressions

Pretty_Boy

Alright, Bel Ami or rather known as Pretty Man (or Pretty Boy or Beautiful Man, or whatever else) has aired the first two episodes and let’s talk about it.

I’m not fully on board this drama – because it didn’t manage to get my 100% attention. I was bored for the first half of episode one, and then it started to pick up a little. But then again, for episode 2, there was still some boring parts, and then it was a little interesting here and there.

I understand that it’s a Manhwa adaptation, thus there are supposed to be some comic humour included. It’s all good – but the show feels somewhat a little disoriented. It’s like it can’t decide to be comical or makjang. I’ll prefer comical over makjang anytime – because hidden son of a big company? That’s like the x-th time being used in k-drama and that’s utterly boring.

I don’t like Han Chae Young. Something about her kind of bugs me – she’s pretty I know, but as an actress…hmmmm…I have a lot of question marks. I don’t know if Ma Te likes Bo Tong, but Bo Tong is a total fangirl! A pervert one. Hahaha!

As of now, I don’t know if I’ll like the show yet. I like some parts of it (like Bo Tong fangirling over Ma Te, and Ma Te knowing that she’s his ultimate fangirl, Jaek Hee who seems like a rich woman who is stupid in love – but in reality knows how valuable money is and is smarter than we think) – but hated most parts of it (the makjang, the seducing women part). I’ll have to wait and see.
