Enough of Philippine Politics, which is getting sour in taste as time goes by. Lets go to K-wave or Hallyu, particularly drama's. One of the most talk about dramas nowadays is W-Two Worlds. A story when a daughter of cartoonists, Oh Yeon Joo goes to the webtoon titled W, and fell in love to the protaganists of the story Kang Chul. In which the actors of the main roles were Han Hyo Joo, and Lee Jong Suk. The drama has a unique story and received good reviews. And it said to be the next Descendants of the Sun. The main actress Han Hyo Joo, was said to be the next Song Hye Kyo, the main actress of DOTS. But somehow, it is not as on the same level as the Descendants of The Sun. Why is it? I will lay out my personal opinions on why it doesn't had been.
One of the reason it has not surpass Descendants of the Sun, is Descendants of the Sun itself. Although the fever of the Descendants of the Sun craze are slowly dying down now. When W was release, DOTS is still the talk of the town. Although its a good drama, it cannot skyrocket like Descendants of The Sun, because it was release on the period when the fever of Descendants of the Sun is still in the air. Even if the drama ended way before W begans airing.
Another problem that hinders it, was the present competition. From KBS their is Love in The Moon Light, which stars Kim Yoo Jung and Park Bo Gum. And from SBS their is Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo. Although the two dramas differs in airtime with W, but because of their presence in the air, W cannot dominate in the news, articles, social networking sites. Especially with the powerhouse cast of Scarlet Heart. Their is Lee Joon Ki, IU, Seohyun of SNSD, Kang Ha Neul, Hong Jong Hyun, and the other princes that I don't know the names. But being princes in sageuks nowadays, they are incredibly handsome. And for some word play. Apparently Two Worlds cant beat Two Moons.
And last but not the least factor, may lie on Han Hyo Joo. Its not that she is not a good actress. She is a good actress. But the roles she mostly played, including this drama W. She is always playing the good girl, always on the good side. Which is somehow overuse for her. Personally for me, I want Hyo Joo to be a bad girl on her roles, to the villainy side. Or if it not a girl that will not back down if challenged. A woman with strong resolve. Like of that she played in Love 911, and especially with her latest movie Love Lies. Her facial features dictates that she can be a villain, or at least be a bad girl Hyo Joo. That she did in the movie Love Lies, and on the variety show Running Man. When she shows her anger against Kwang Soo and HaHa. Her good girl character is too tiring. Time to be a bad girl Hyo Joo.
