The Musical – Episode 7 Recap

Oh revelers, you know naught what is coming your way! It’s been one non-stop party at Gu Jak’s since the musical got started, and I can hardly wait to watch the changes to come.  I find the details of this show incredibly hard to predict, but that’s half the fun!  I really liked Episode 7, particularly because of all the Jinny goodness.  I love me some internal conflict!

The Musical – Episode 6 Recap

I chose this as the introductory screenshot because it’s the closest I could get to representing all seven characters entrenched in the musical love “triangle”.  Besides the four in the car, JY and KH are both calling EB throughout drive, so only the Director is left out (but he’s probably sadly drinking three coffees alone).  It’s amazing that this drama has established so many relationships in only six episodes, and it works!

The Musical – Episode 5 Recap

I love this shot of Jin and Jae Yi facing off with Eun Bi between them; it feels like a symbol of what’s to come, and I can’t wait to see one of them loose their cool.  The tension between all of the characters is continuing to grow, and Kang Hee is most certainly following the mantra of keeping her friends close and her enemies closer (it made my skin crawl).  My anticipation and excitement is growing with every episode; isn’t it torture that we have to wait another whole week?

The Musical – Episode 4 Recap

More cuteness! More auditioning! More unveiling of the past! This episode had everything I was hoping for, and I think that next week will be even better.  The complexity of each character continues to grow, and I love that I don’t know what’s headed our way.   Continue reading

The Musical – Ep 1 and 2 Recap

I feel like this show is filling the void left behind by Heartstrings, and not because the story is focused around music.  Its strength is its simplicity and its commitment to characters that feel real, and I predict that it will surprise us by defying many cliches and leaving its own unique mark on the k-drama landscape.
