Okay, I can’t stop watching Awaken (Night and Day) even though I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS and I know most won’t be answered by the end. This drama is so weird, building a conspiracy on perhaps the most horrific power grab ever explored by a K-drama, where rich people (or person) seeks eternal life and in the process uses actual kids (and adults like gangsters and homeless) in clinical trials and basically every test subject dies (like hundreds if not thousands of people) and it’s all like “eh, what’cha goin’ do ’bout it” with people who are trying to stop them in the slowest way possible. In this drama there is actually a character who has stopped aging, another turning back the aging clock using pills, a person with super power strength, another with super intelligence, you name it and it’s there but the drama is so clinical, so antiseptic, so blase about all that wild stuff and presents it like it’s just all about a hero bringing justice by stopping baddies as if this was your garden variety K-drama thriller such as a ganglord having a judge in his pocket or a police chief who is corrupt. It’s like feeling a 7.5 earthquake and buildings are collapsing around me but the person next to me thinks it’s just mere shaking. Anyhoo, not complaining just perplexed, and honestly even this weirdness is still fun to watch because this drama rests solely on Namgong Min and his complex Jung Woo. It really is that a good actor can read a phone book and I’d watch that lol.
