THE SHORT VERDICT:
Show continues our magicky narrative from Season 1 (review here!), and manages to serve up a solid story, while sticking to its own mythology and internal rules.
On top of that, I found Show nicely engaging on the emotional front, once I got my bearings in Season 2.
To address the elephant in the room, yes, I thought Go Yoon Jung was very good as our female lead, and I thought the change of female lead between Season 1 and 2, was nicely managed.
Importantly, even though I did feel like Show wobbled a little bit at the end, it does, in fact, give us a solid ending, while working within the mythological framework it’s set up for itself.
Not bad at all, I say.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!! Can you even believe that 2023 is already here??? How completely surreal. 😱 Here’s wishing us all lots of joy and satisfaction, in Dramaland and beyond! 🥳
Because it’s the 1st of January, it’s time for another This Month on Patreon post!
In case you missed it (announcement here!), I’ve overhauled my Patreon & blogging schedules – details below!
This is my monthly post on:
1. What’s happening on Patreon in a given month,
2. Exactly when you can expect to see various Patreon-related reviews in the month,
3. What shows I’m considering for coverage on Patreon, to replace shows that have completed their cycles, and
4. What you can expect, as a patron.
I hope you guys find this helpful &/or informative, and I hope you’ll consider supporting me on Patreon! ❤️
