I’ve been half-heartedly following Midas (damn you, SH-addiction!), which is good enough, I guess. I dunno, it’s not bad, but it’s not good to the point that I feel any desire to watch it, except out of my Jang Hyuk love and loyalty covenant. Currently, the only character who I find interesting and want to see more of is No Min Woo. He’s like the only person who feels alive and spontaneous in that drama, and everyone else is just going through the motions. With that, bringing you a No Min Woo piscpam update from Midas. He looks good, ladies.
Three episodes in, and my prediction is totally coming true. No Min Woo has sizzling chemistry with Lee Min Jung (well, the chemistry is 90% on his part, she’s kinda just there). I’m totally rooting for the uncanon (and doomed) OTP already.
I can’t say anything about Midas, plot- or character-wise, feels refreshing or unique. When it gives off the sense that its sampling so many elements, without blending it in a way (yet that I see) that adds it own flair, it makes me watch it with a detached eye and not feeling engaged at all.
The execution is quite solid, and it’s yet early to say that the drama won’t click for me anytime in the next few episodes and suddenly turn me into a rabid viewer. I hope the story kicks it up a notch soon, since I would hate to have to drop it.
