    HEIRS

    It was hyped, I liked the summary, I like Kim woobin and Lee Minho I was accepting.

    I genuinely was pissed off with this show.

    The plot is messy and handled horribly and sometimes makes no fucking sense

    But it didn't flop,because it has a list actors. But this is just the industry both Korean and worldwide.(the west is more complicated but u know)

    So any dramas that were horrible but didn't flop because of the actors?

    I have dropped so many dramas because of how horrible the drama was even though it had my faves in them. I d on't care who plays in it, if there's not a single thing that interests me about the plot, I won't continue to watch.

    I'm a bad judge of acting tbh, so I only usually watch for the plot. I would never be able to tell if some one is a bad actor unless I read comments and reviews about them. Though the really terrible ones I can tell. Currently I can't tell whether Bride of The Water God is bad because of the writing, or because of the actors/actresses. It... just feels so bland

    Also, I'm convinced that almost all dramas written by Kim Eun Sook don't flop because both the actors + the writer. Her dramas are so cringe-worthy but they always do so well. It's crazy. Also, LMH dramas don't flop too hard (in most cases) even though they're bad more than they're not and I am convinced that it's all because of him (which I don't understand what the hype is even all about).

    Heirs is the one that comes to mind, like you said.
    Rather than bad dramas that do well because of A list actors, I feel like there's so many more dramas that flopped DESPITE having A list actors.

    I can't force myself to watch dramas that I don't like, no matter who is in it.
    I just can't deal.
    Heirs, Boys over flowers, descendants of the sun, all of these dramas I just couldn't continue watching them. I just couldn't deal.

    I used to stan 2pm Taecyeon like crazy. Still can't go through Dream High for him. Lol.

    However, I guess I stan JB crazier because I actually finished that dreadful Dream High 2 for him, and his bad acting too.

    I guess I really do watch for my bias but step over to season 2, the person is still my bias but i'd usually say goodbye to the series since I have commitement issues with any series at all. Lol.

    I love Nam Joo Hyuk, I love Krystal, but there's no way I am putting up with the BS that is Bride of the Water God for them.
    I read the manhua and it already seemed better than the 30 minutes I watched of the 1st episode.

    omg Heirs was the worst. Absolute trash. Hated every second. Only interesting part was Krystal and Minhyuk's romance, so much more chemistry.

    It is thus why I said I really do watch a drama because of my bias but even the craziest bias wont get me to the second season as I can't really commit to any series at all.

    That explains nothing. Nor does it mean anything to me. Like I said, I don't get the hype at all. He's (almost) always playing the same character, his looks are nothing special and his acting is nothing special either. Even if I get over the fact that he's basically playing the same character over and over again, it's not like his dramas are anything special either. He's honestly one of the most boring Korean actors out there.

    I was intentionally facetious because I thought that drama was bad even though it's popular.
