I’m sure Joo Ji Hoon fans must’ve been thrilled that he’s coming back to TV-land with his comeback weekend drama for SBS called Five Fingers. The drama released its first teaser this weekend and I was suitably impressed…….by how makjang it felt in a few short seconds. I loved the piano playing tracking shots and all the intense performing-at-Lincoln-Center vibes in the beginning, and then we get kids looking happy and clearly not so happy things about to befall them. I think this drama will end up being palatable to fans of the leads, who also include Chae Si Ra, Eunjung, and Ji Chang Wook, rather than the story looking really intriguing. Doesn’t help that the production saddled Joo Ji Hoon with a terrible middle part haircut, rendering him on the cusp of ahjusshi-hood. So not cool, but the drama gods have balanced it out by making Eunjung absolutely drop dead gorgeous. Weekend dramas skew towards family makjang fare to begin with so I’m not surprised by the vibe FF is giving off. I might check it out regardless since piano-themed dramas usually are very pretty to look at and listen to.
