Watching Surplus Princess:
[Main plot] *Yawns* *okay Jo Bo Ah is adorbs* *okay Song Jae Rim is soooo sexy but sooo sleazy lol*
[Random bizarre hilar WTFFFF scene with amazing over-the-top music] HAHAHAHAHA *dying*
It’s a struggle. Just when I get bored, they give me some lustful shameless female lead hilarity or Kim Seul Gi awesomeness and I cave for 10 more mins. Cycle repeats.
I can’t quite explain it but the new trendy rom-coms are all taking this “quirky” + very “PPL-ish” vibe that’s funny and relatable, but also very plastic. They don’t so much tell stories as trigger reaction after reaction. It’s almost like filming a drama with tumblr gif-sets as the end-goal.
The same goes for OSTs, I really appreciate how dramas are diversifying away from the same-old melodramatic orchestral music or sad ballads and incorporating a large variety of genres into the background music. I admit I’m very easily affected by music, so much so that it can make or break a show for me.
With Surplus Princess for example, I sometimes feel a little manipulated because every scene there’s a different song with a different emotional impact playing, and it becomes distracting. Though I think with this show (made by the people behind SNL) spoof and tricks are exactly what was intended.
Edit: Maybe I should be more precise, new tvN rom-coms
All the rom-coms in my life these days.
