Hoo boy, this is going to be one complicated watch for me with upcoming jTBC drama Fantastic. In paying homage to it’s title, the previews indeed look absolutely fantastic, with great music and visuals and tons of charm. But then the looming threat of the female lead starting off with a terminal illness diagnosis can’t be overlooked, and feels so superfluous like having a third boob. Why, drama, whyyyyyyy? Can’t she decide to live life to the fullest after having an epiphany, why must individuals in dramas only decide to pivot when the end is in sight, it’s such a terrible point to make and not realistic in the least. With that said, maybe the drama will cop out and she won’t die – I’m okay with that lame twist as long as Kim Hyun Joo and Joo Sang Wook have tons of fun bickering their way to love, and toss in smexy Ji Soo, back to form Park Shi Yeon, and goofy Kim Tae Hoon. I’m all good with that.
