My Thoughts

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

I can’t believe “Terius Behind Me” won basically everything!!

I have watched the drama and with all honesty, the script was a mess! The script didn’t make any sense nor did the characters actions. Its not to say that the actors did a bad job but the writer definitely didn’t know how to wrap her head around the spy theme.

But then again, logically speaking, of course, they would give so many awards to their biggest hit of the year, MBC had a terrible 2018 when it comes to miniseries.

“Terius Behind Me” highest viewership rating number was 10%, 10%!!!

it’s not that 10% is bad but its that it’s becoming more and more difficult to score good numbers on public channels, I have discussed this in lengthy details here, you can check it out here if you want!





Its that “Terius Behind Me” in comparison to other MBC dramas isn’t really that big of a deal, script-wise! Yes, they might have scored success with the drama but let me tell you this, the cast made it work, if it were another cast this drama flaws would have shown wayyyy brighter.

Its becoming like Kpop music awards giving out the best of the best to the most popular, I seriously thought that Korean drama awards were different. its just sad!

I am happy So Ji Sub won a daesang but I seriously disagree with naming “Terius Behind Me” the best drama and the best writer.

I am very happy that Woo Do Hwan won something. “The Great Seducer” was (I think the lowest rated drama of 2018) but it was ambitious. He still did an amazing job and deserved to win it.

Heo Joon Ho and Jang Ki Yong did so darn well in “Come and Hug Me,” they deserve the awards they won. I am happy ori Jang Ki Yong is getting bigger, he was exceptional in his role, he pulled it off effortlessly.

Heo Joon Ho also deserves the award he got, I am also happy they honored him. He’s an exceptional actor who can freak anybody out.

I am also glad that U-KISS’s Jun won an award; I hope that he grows bigger as an actor, he has serious potential. Even though his group isnt popular anymore. I am just happy he’s being acknowledged.

I am also personally extremely happy Moon Ga Young, despite playing the second female lead, won the Excellence Award. Her performance in that messy dramatic drama was just phenomenal, she will grow up and do even bigger things! I am so proud of her, her performance in that drama stuck with me.

Congrats to all the winners!
