I wonder if short dramas will become more common place, what with shorter attention spans and the fast pace of entertainment consumption. KBS aired the period drama Youth of May very timely premiering in May for a 12-episode run which wrapped today. It’s a romance set in the college student setting in 1980’s South Korea specifically around the Gwangju Massacre as a looming backdrop. Lee Do Hyun and Go Min Si were the lovebird leads after playing siblings in zombie drama Sweet Home, he was a med school student and she was a downtrodden nurse but of course their love tried to overcome their different backgrounds and disapproving parents and political conflicts. Geum Sae Rok ran from the cancelled Joseon Exorcist to here and Lee Sang Yi came off popular weekend drama Once Again so the casting really did find rising stars. For those who watched, please share your thoughts and I did hear about the ending so for those who don’t want to be spoiled then don’t read as this blog is always a spoiler-ridden zone.
