Omg, things are finally moving forward in this drama! And Ha Neul is finally done wallowing in self pity!

Lo and behold, we finally got more substantial background on the 'rape' case surrounding Ji Young and Ha Neul. Ji Young, that conniving little skeeze, apparently booted Luna, an original member of girl group Twinkle, and debuted under Luna's name instead. 

A nod to GG's "Tell Me Your Wish" outfits! 

According to the real Luna, whom Seok Ho managed to squeeze some information out of, Ji Young's got something on Joo Han. That's possibly why Joo Han granted Ji Young the ultimate favor by placing her in a girl group, something that Ji Young has so ardently desired. But we don't yet know what Joo Han is so desperate to keep on the DL. And then the drama just slams us in the face at the end with the DUN DUN big reveal DUN DUN that Jin Woo, the Jackson member that Seok Ho so doted on, was the one who framed Ha Neul. 


But why? We don't know that yet. We can make all the wild guesses in the world, but we won't really know for certain. Joo Han and the K Top CEO used Ji Young for their own gain, that's for sure, but what I'm not so sure about is where and how Seok Ho and Ha Neul come into the picture. All we can do for now is wait patiently and wait for this mystery to slowly--very slowly--unfurl. 

Additionally, one thing I liked about this episode was that it did a swell job in depicting how selfish Ha Neul's 'selfless act' of dropping out of 'Ddanddara' is. Though it may seem sound to follow his head when he believes he may be hurting those around him, what if it actually turns out that following his head results in the exact thing that he tried to avoid? 

Why yes gurlfran, that new club in town be poppin. 

Ha Neul never stopped to think that by quitting 'Ddanddara,' he is sacrificing the dreams of others, and the sacrifices they had to make to pursue those very dreams. So now that Ha Neul has learned to truly place the interests of others before his, maybe he is ready to become a permanent member of 'Ddanddara,' give Kyle the chance to become the greatest guitarist the K-Pop world has ever seen, give Geu Rin the chance to see him happy by passionately following his dreams, and give Seok Ho a second chance at life.

Finally a better review from all kop, even I get a lil annoyed with word " mystery reveal too slow " because if you see it with clear head that the mystery isnt that simple.You forgot why suk ho try to make haneul debut as band, and the reality in the end of the show that hit suk ho really hard.And whats mystery behind fake luna and ex suho asistant? Why fake luna make haneul as a crime for her debut ?Well it just your opinion, but I know you dont watch it carefully because this movie isnt that simple.

Is this drama worth the watch?? I want to watch it but I'm still undecided.

dikariani LovelySerenity Friday, April 29, 2016

It is . Ep 1 just a lil boring, but it get better every ep , then when there is mystery on last ep it will be revealed on the next ep, but the next ep revealed the other mystery, for the one who just wanna see simple plot just leave this drama. This drama aint that simple. But if you like drama with so many quetion, try this. 😊

dikariani LovelySerenity Sunday, May 1, 2016

nice choice ! but I do remember you that for the first ep it will be boring and you will like blank, you will get understand when you see the next ep >< my advice, is watch carefully, and patient ><

isn't weird that hyeri and minhyuk turn out to be not siblings and the drama is kind of heading to a way where they could end up as a couple

dikariani Yoss_J Sunday, May 1, 2016

No, it isnt weird, hyeri and minhyuk could end up for a couple because from the start we just know hyeri is minhyuk siblinh, we didnt know they just pretend or they are really sibling rite ? And for suk ho and hyeri, i get their chemistry on ep 4 , so I still didnt know what they would be. I saw there is scene where Suk ho ask about Ha Neul brother but hyeri said that she is the only one sister for ha neul. And suk ho just smile, because he alrd know that hyeri lie 😆 Like I said this drama isnt that easy, there is reason and mystery we just have to wait and see 😄
