Yesterday I finally managed to finish 9 Ends 2 Outs! Phew! And I didn’t like it. 😦
And although I’m not asking for my 16 hours back, can I barter for… probably my 6 hours back?
I feel bad because I used to like this drama when I started watching it. I fell in love with it right away. But somehow, towards the middle, I knew that I would have some problems with it towards the end because I develop a liking towards Hyung-Tae and Nan-Hee’s own love interests that I’m afraid I might not like them when they start having a romantic relationship eventually.
And my instincts were right. After they started getting romantic with each other, I lost interest. But not only that. I also hate the fact that things just keep repeating. Nan-Hee’s problems, their feelings towards each other, the other characters’ problems. There are also too many characters and not everyone gets their ‘resolution’. I was like, “So what happened to him and him and her?”. I also think there are too many open holes in the drama.
Nan-Hee is cute (and I think Park Soo-Ae is a good actress), but I ended up hating her character so much! I empathized and sympathized with her, but towards the end I don’t think her character developed much. Hyung-Tae is handsome – and hot. He was so cool at the start, but when he started acknowledging his feelings towards Nan-Hee he became such a jerk! He likes Nan-Hee yet he keeps dating his pretty girls. As if hurting Ji-Sun is not enough! He is worst than Sam-Shik!
I really feel bad because I like the premise of this drama. As I’ve mention before I’m a sucker for 30-something-women stories. They could have made this a whole lot better. But the story became really dragging towards the last half. It became too bad – it makes me sad. It doesn’t help that I’m watching 49 Days too (which is really addicting). It makes this drama more boring.
When I said before that drama watching for me is starting to become a task because I study as I watch, I didn’t realize that it was REALLY because of the drama. I thought then that I like 9 Ends 2 Outs but I feel so lazy watching it. I thought because I have to study it as I watch that’s why I’m feeling lazy. I really thought then that I like the drama. But somehow I didn’t feel what I used to feel when watching dramas. I thought it was me who changed. Apparently it was a wrong drama choice. I didn’t realize that it was a sign that it was not my kind of drama after all. I started watching 49 Days and I’m hooked! And I feel exactly how I’ve always felt whenever I’m watching dramas.
Oh well, I love the dialogues in 9 Ends 2 Outs anyway. Plus of course I’m thankful because I found a very nice cheer-up song – Fly Again. And thanks for a lot of new words and expressions you taught me. But other than that, unless I know you have a feeling towards (or falling in love with) your best friend, I won’t recommend this drama to anyone. 😦
