We’re just hours away from a new episode of Monstar and I have a good feeling this one will continue the nicely developing character growth and musical discovery the drama has established. Mnet released some official spoiler stills of Seol Chan and Se Yi in a near kiss situation and this can’t be a surprise to anyone since this scene was shown in the preview at the end of episode 5. I think its way too early for these two cutie pies to be kissing, and I’m betting based on intuition and drama experience that this kiss isn’t happening. But that doesn’t mean the act of nearly kissing isn’t going to have some real consequences in shifting the tone and tenor of Seol Chan and Se Yi’s odd relationship. They aren’t really friends, they are classmates by chance and karma put them as seat mates, and they are bound together by the fear of poop dogging their reputations as well as the god-given musical talents that make them perfect to form a group together. Oh, and they both absolutely loathe All for One, so if I add up all their little bits and pieces, I think the drama makes an easy case for why they are so utterly perfect for each other. She puts him off-balance and he invades her bubble-formed personal space. I really don’t know why Seol Chan’s awkward jealousy over Se Yi’s closeness with Sun Woo delights me to no end, but it does and I want to see more of it. It’s like watching a very slow creature suddenly develop personal awareness of its true limitations. Episode 5 confirmed for me that Na Na has some strange feelings around Sun Woo, which means the drama might have a secondary romantic OTP developing soon to double the fun. I’m still the most invested in the friendships developing all around, from mending broken ones to growing unexpected ones, and as the viewer we gets some fantastic music sequences out of it to boot. I’m quite curious what the ultimate act will be that Color Bar will put on opposite All for One since Seol Chan has thrown out some really nifty concepts so far though I doubt those will be recycled for the actual performance. All the exciting new developments sure to come makes me count down the hours until episode 6 airs.
