Hello everyone! Welcome back to Day #23! For today’s question, it is:
Drama where the child portion of the story was better than the adult one
Ahhh yes, sadly this occurs in K-dramas (or all Asian dramas in general) quite often, where we root for an OTP at the beginning of the drama, but once they grow up, our love for them depletes immediately. Here are just a few of the more memorable ones:
1. Stairway to Heaven
I absolutely adored our younger versions of Park Shin Hye and Baek Sung Hyun. They were truly a memorable couple (and even won awards from it) which really kick-started their careers. Once they grew up in the drama though, all the angst and melodrama stuff just got involved which yes, made the drama memorable but unfortunately made the journey a hard one to follow. Will forever remember them in the child portion~
2. The Moon that Embraces the Sun
I. loved. this. child. pairing. This really made me attached to not only the drama, but also to their other works later on in the future. And also, the chemistry between our couple was truly memorable and adorable. However, that sort of chemistry was lost once they kinda grew up. Han Ga In’s character was a little too awkward with Soo Hyun (perhaps because she was older and it was obvious that they weren’t the same age). But yeah, I miss them too :3
3. My Love Eun Dong
I’m sure I’ve spoken about this drama in the past for a yearly review and that I explained briefly the reason for dropping it. Yes, the child portions (both child and teenage portions) were most definitely better than the adult portions. Like full stop. I dropped this drama simply because there were no more child portions, and I was disappointed at the lack of chemistry and attachment I had for their older counterparts when I had adored their younger versions so much. Probably not gonna finish it ever, sorry guys.
