10 Episodes in, King of Dramas is truly THE KING! My favorite Korean drama thus far! Awesome script, fresh dialogue & tightly paced drama. Kudos to the scriptwriter & director!!!
What really up the ante though is the great Kim Myung Min! Hats off to you, Mr. Kim! Truly a great actor. Your Anthony is a tour de force. Anthony Kim is a jerk (albeit a very sexy one, haha), but you've made us viewers root for this antihero Svengali, with your charismatic portrayal and commanding presence! So many great scenes of Anthony Kim - the opening speech, the action sequences running to deliver the tape, the "fight" dialogue with Go Eun on rooftop, etc. But probably those dark humor scenes of tough jerk Anthony sobbing uncontrollably are my favorite scenes of your exquisite acting! And you, sir, are Charisma on steroids! Doesn't hurt too that you have THE Sexiest voice in K-dramas! Please also keep the wardrobe of those tight 3-piece suits for as long as possible (special mention to wardrobe stylist for the discerning eye!) Kim Myung Min sshi, you're totally rocking it - the suits, the swagger, the role of Anthony Kim! I'm forever in awe:) Prior to this, I've only watched you in Beethoven Virus. But King of Dramas has made me a fan of yours!!!
The rest of the ensemble cast also rocks! Jung Ryeo Won is totally watchable as the likeable lead. Finally, a nice girl with balls! Girl Power! This is only the second time I've seen your shows since Kim Sam Soon and your acting range here is impressive! Fave scene of yours: when Go Eun douses Anthony in OJ! And whenever Go Eun goes berserk & lashes out! What a riot!
Choi Siwon is a hoot as the comic relief. Such a vast improvement from your Skip Beat role. More range too. Seems like you act best in unrestrained comedic roles? Fave scene of yours: at the orphanage. Also, props to the beach swim scene. Dedication!
Oh Ji Eun it's the first time I'm seeing you in dramas but read many favorable comments on your acting in I Live In Cheongdamdong. Hope to see more of your good acting skills in King of Dramas! Fighting!
All in all, I'm a huge huge fan of this drama! I'm in love with it! Haha. For me, the show really shines at scenes where Anthony had to hustle or rally. When he gets into his frantic firefighting, rescue mode; when he has to make it work. These moments carry the show for me, with tight script, fast pace direction and spot-on acting and physicality by the great Kim Myung Min. So looking forward to each new episode. And if the show does get extended, here's to more great episodes to keep us on our tenterhooks, to more badass Anthony Kim moments! Kudos to every cast & crew! Thanks for keeping us so entertained!:) Fighting!!!
