I’ve seen my share of cringe-worthy English versions of K-drama titles due to the translation bloop of language terms but this one takes the punny cake. Upcoming KBS Wed-Thurs drama Manhole: Wonderland’s Feels (or Manhole: Feels So Good) has got to undergo a title change, please KBS! I know tittering over manhole is so juvenile since it’s a perfectly fine definition of an opening into an underground utility access point but it’s mostly used when appended with cover, as in I tripped over the manhole cover, and solo should be used when things or oneself falls into an open one. Otherwise manhole sounds funny and now sounds even funnier and dirtier when Wonderland’s Feels or Feels So Good is added to it. Tee hee. On the upside the drama sounds fun, with a group of five neighborhood friends traveling through a manhole from past to present to stop a wedding taking place next week. Script reading took place this week with leads Jaejoong, UEE, Baro, and Jung Hye Sung.
The drama takes over the time slot from melo romance sageuk Seven Days Queen.
