What’s a Koala gotta do to court boredom? Why is the dramaverse suddenly heating up with dramas that interest me all at once? Argh, I have neither the wherewithal nor the inclination to follow anything more than one K-drama at a time, yet there are currently four upcoming K-dramas that have become must sees for me for at least one episode. The male quartet in A Gentleman’s Dignity is like the K-version of the modern rat pack, except without the crooning. I’m way more into the bromance between Jang Dong Gun, Kim Min Jong, Kim Soo Ro, and Lee Jong Hyuk than I am interested in whatever romantic love line is between the male leads and their respective leading ladies.
The men are behaving like boys having way too much fun, and its such an infectious spirit that I’m grinning from cheek-to-cheek when I saw these new stills. Since this is a Kim Eun Sook-drama, I’m expecting fast-paced overly scripted banter, but her dramas rise and fall mostly on great chemistry and delivery. So here’s to hoping AGD has it in spades. The flower boy or beast men craze? Pfft, so over and done with. It’s time for the fashion-savvy ahjusshis to own the screen again. Funny how I went to see Million Dollar Quartet last week, and right now these four men look like a million bucks to me.
