My Lee Seung Gi has been freed! Like his character Song Oh Gong with the geumganggo magical bracelet binding him, the ending of Hwayugi feels like he’s taken off the shackles and can move on to better things but also knowing he’s tried his best. He arrived late at the drama wrap party so wasn’t snapped by the media but the rest of the cast did their grin and be relieved this is all over walk past the reporters on their way into the party. Whatever issues I have with Oh Yeon Seo‘s performance and the way her character was written (so flat I couldn’t even sense a heartbeat), I’m sure she tried her best and kudos to her. The cast members that came out of this epic mess drama the best were Lee Se Young and Lee Hong Ki, and even Bora got me tearing up at the end. It was the secondary interpersonal relationships that worked and other than my love for Lee Seung Gi I can’t say Oh Gong was a memorable character aside from being cool and snarky. Better luck next time folks, and the Hong Sisters are on my crap list now until they re-learn how to write a drama.
