Welcome back to the sixteenth day of the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge! Today’s question is:
Drama that ruined your fondness for an actor/actress you previously liked.
Despite the insanity of Boys Over Flowers I hopped right on the Lee Min Ho fan-train afterwards. I mean who didn’t love (and love to hate) Jun Pyo? That was my intro into K-Dramas and I almost immediately watched City Hunter, because of Lee Min Ho. I loved his character, Yoon Sung, way more than Jun Pyo. I was pretty sure that I’d love any character that he took on, as long as I could adjust my fangirl perceptions enough.
I was just as excited for Heirs as a great many others were in the blogverse and dramaland. I had made sure that I could watch it live without interruptions, which is quite the feat in my house. I was so ready to love this show! And then… it all went wrong. Not only did I get a sour taste in my mouth for Lee Min Ho, I dropped the drama despite my all time favorite bias Choi Jin Hyuk having a staring role, as well as, another of my all time favorites Kim Woo Bin. Anyway, I’ve yet to watch another Lee Min Ho drama or movie since. I really should give something a shot, maybe someday!
Here’s the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge if you are interested in joining! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s answers to these questions.
