This is another one of those times when my desire to love a show far outweighs my actual love for said show.
Dismal ratings aside, I’d actually found Moorim School fairly enjoyable in its earlier episodes.
Sure, it was far from love at first sight (or even serious like at first sight), but with some lens adjustment, I’d actually found this a pleasant sort of watch, for a while.
Too bad that strategy couldn’t see me through to the end.
THE SHORT VERDICT:
More engaging and interesting in the first half than the second half.
The writing got somewhat haphazard in the second half and I found it hard to stay engaged with the characters.
Worth checking out if you’re a fan of Uhm Tae Woong, Lee Joon Hyuk &/or Lee Hyun Woo, who deliver strong performances. Just don’t always expect the story to make complete sense.
