Oh man, what is this? Don’t be spinning me round and round, drama! The written preview for episode 15 of Who Are You is out and I’m simultaneously sniggering and sighing. This drama can re-name itself more aptly Who is In a Coma, because looks like Gun Woo is going to get a taste of the sleep medicine. Though for those who find Taecyeon’s acting unbearable, this is probably a good turn of events. I find him uproarious, because his acting has this “think, what expression am I suppose to make” on the fly quality to it. As opposed to monotonous one-note or being a charisma suck. His bad acting amuses me, and for a silly little drama such as WAY it doesn’t harm the narrative because his character is pretty much a lunkhead like he is in real life, and the nonsensical plot elements are already way more distracting than he can be. Not to mention So Yi Hyun‘s performance has progressively gotten worse and I’m rather flummoxed with how to view her character now. Useless cop? Ghost seer with limited detective skills? Bad ex-girlfriend and clueless crush?
With Gun Woo in a coma, I hope finally the drama can give Hyun Joon more than just a few minutes each episode, oppa needs to get some loving from Si On! He’s been keeping watch over her for 6 years, which might be 60 years in ghost hours for all we know. Not to mention he’s doing whatever to protect her that might end up dooming him to a nothingness existence. That would be like tripping on a crack in the road and breaking your leg, only to have a piano fall from the sky and land on you. Suck piled on top of suck. This written preview has caused viewers to go batshit again, with the constant wailing for oppa once again flooding forums along with curiously creative curses at the scriptwriter. I was a bit blinded by the light of Hyun Joon’s corporeal form laying there at the end of episode 14 that I didn’t want to acknowledge the pink elephant ghost case of the episode where the comatose nurse got Si On to bring her older sister to see her and afterwards departed peacefully. Of course that’s a giant neon warning sign that even of Hyun Joon oppa isn’t totally dead yet, he’s still going to totally die soon. For realz this time. Of course bringing him back only to off him again is like the absolute worst fan lure ever, since who can resist oppa’s soulful gazes and lifetime’s worth of sadness and longing.
Written preview for episode 15:
