I’m still on the fence on whether the best thing about SBS fantasy time travel drama Alice is Joo Won or second male lead Kwak Shi Yang. It’s not a diss on Joo Won because he’s been incredibly on point in that drama since the very beginning but his character feels so reactive where his time traveler daddy is all mistaken rage and then shock and sorrow and we’re just heartbreaking for him. All that is saying that I’m over for Joo Won allergy from before his military service and totally understand why his fans love him. I think Alice may or may not be a great comeback drama for him when all is said and done but he would not have been a contributor if the drama fails but would be credited for the success of it. He’s been so mellow visually in the drama so its also nice to see him doing his best flower boy presentation. I’ll accept that desiccated rose Joo Won!
