Seriously, sometimes I think there is something wrong with me. Instead of starting any quality doramas I decided that my life would not be complete without seeing 'Sad Sonata,' a Korean drama which apparently decided that there weren't enough cliches in the average kdrama so tossed some more in.

We have:
1. Hero, who is a poor lad who composes and works at a petrol station for a living. His mum ran a club where Korean ladies danced with American soldiers but she has now expired painfully of some disease.
2. Heroine, who is blind and parentless. And also in love with hero but struggling with the fact that she is in New York with gambling aunt who is treated bad by her American husband forcing them to flee onto the streets. She sings at a night club for money that is gambled away by aunt
3. Secondary Male Lead, who is rich, somehow magically friends with hero, at college in New York, and interested in heroine.
4. Bonkers Secondary Female Lead who is doing something with letters heroine is sending to hero and who is causing trouble in the way that secondary females do

Out of a sense of preservation I ff through a lot of this but even still it moves slowly. But now Heroine is wandering caneless, tearful, and pajamed through the streets of NY for some reason. DON'T ASK ME WHY. I predict she will be saved by secondary male lead who will take this opportunity to fall even more in love with her. The way you do.

With a name like 'Sad Sonata' what are the chances that this turns out well? I'm guessing not a lot.

ETA: Ah, heroine has been run over by taxicab on the very day hero has made it to New York to look for her. As we are only in episode 7 I am guessing they do not find each other as otherwise there not would be episodes 8-whatever number this thing has.

ETA 2: Through the magic of skience the heroine just got her eyesight back in operation paid for by secondary male lead. I feel she is a bit less than properly grateful as he has to sell his nice Audi sports car and buy a crap clunker to ensure he didn't have to tap his wealthy parents (but what exactly was that car made of that selling it could possibly pay for something this expensive? Audis aren't that nice.)
