PERSONAL THOUGHTS


07/21/21

I found "Daebok Realty: Sell Your Haunted House" enjoyable, fun and tragic. It was better executed than I thought - it had a bit of everything; horror, fantasy, sad / tragic stories, comedy, etc. I wouldn't classify this as horror, since it infused a lot of humor and other dramatic stories. It cracks my Top 5 recent, and would categorize this as more Fantasy / Supernatural. I can identify with Ji A's eating habits in terms of portion size haha.

"Law School" - you can learn a lot from this. Not a favorite, but it was decent. Kang Sol A was pouty and whiny all throughout (but in a cute way), and Kang Sol B had no emotions whatsoever. Talk about contrast or complete opposites.

Currently watching "Sell Your Haunted House". The effects are quite good - subtle camera movements / scenes, not trying to do too much. Sometimes, minimalism works much better than over-doing it with special effects. To give it that drama flair, I can see why thematic shows like this would embellish the makeup or wardrobe / costume at least. When it comes to ghosts and supernatural programs these days, they just don't end up being scary at all because of all the crappy effects. They infused humor in this, so they did not go all-out in terms of scare factor or jumps.

There are plans for a Taxi Driver S2. Good news indeed. Second seasons can turn out well, but it's a crapshoot. But overall - second seasons usually cannot top the first season. That was certain for Stranger S2, which was a bit under-whelming. That season did not have enough action or suspenseful cases. There are quite a few K-Dramas that could use a second season - "Vincenzo" is another one.

Currently watching "Dark Hole". Reserving judgment until completed watching. But it has that feel of both "Train to Busan" and "Possessed" intensity with a twist.

"Mysterious Mansion" sounds intriguing - sort of similar to "Strangers From Hell"? Wait to find out.
