I continue like but not yet love tvN Mon-Tues drama Record of Youth. I’m more curious over how Park Bo Gum as Hye Joon can keep hard carrying a drama this successfully, as episode 3 increased from last week to hit 7.200% AGB nationwide viewership. Well okay, he had a bit of help from Grandpa as viewers are living their adorable and communicative granddad-grandson relationship. If you backup from the central romance, which feels more like a kindred spirit friendship so far, the family dynamics and side characters get a lot of nuanced writing which can bore people looking for just a strong love story but this isn’t that. This really is a comprehensive mapped out story of two model best friends trying to make it in the hyper competitive world of K-ent and their families and friends around them. Park So Dam’s Jung Ah perplexes me, I can’t decide if I’m just underwhelmed by her character personality and dialogue or I don’t like her underwhelming performance. I hope I warm up to her because I really need her to capture my attention as strongly as Hye Joon has.
