So far I am quite delighting in Beautiful Days though may not for all the reasons the creators intended. In particular, I find it hard to believe that little 'sister' of the heroine (they're not related but grew up in an orphanage) could be considered a decent singer by anyone no matter how tone deaf or whatever hatred of decent music they had. They keep playing scenes of her singing for various auditions and I think we're supposed to believe she has talent, but MY GOD IT'S LIKE A CAT BEING STRANGLED. And that's probably being overly critical of the cat.

So far
1. No one has died
2. All younger siblings, whether truly related or not, should have been drowned at birth
3. Someone screams at someone approximately every 10 minutes (this is not an all time high for Kdramas. In fact, by many standards it's practically restrained)
4. Evil dad is evil
5. Stepmother (uniquely in all Kdrama) is not evil
6. Hero has yet to impress. He needs more angst. Real angst, not this 'my dad brought a woman home with a kid who was probably his bastard son days after my mother died' low-grade stuff. Compared to what most Kdrama heroes have to suffer that's nothing
ETA: 7. Younger 'sister' of Heroine is totally around the bend. Can't sing, can't dance, and totally around the bend. That's a lovely mixture.

re #3: My mom says that watching KDramas ia her way of relieving stress. However, I often have to leave the room when she's watching one because the constant screaming and crying stresses me out.

I often quite enjoy the screaming manpain ones (I know! I know! I admit it's a problem). There's a great one in Stairway to Heaven where the hero lies on the shower floor just wailing. Good times.

Kwon Sang Woo? He's always crying. That man has the tear ducts of a hundred men.

I hope you use the mute button when the younger sister attempts to sing. How many episodes in are you? I'm sure someone will die soon. A non-evil stepmother is definitely strange. Maybe she'll change further into the drama.

I didn't foolishly - I sort of thought that maybe she had to get better and that I was just mishearing. What's worse is that when I looked the actress up she is an actual singer! She has some totally dreadfully bad techno videos up on Youtube that are some of the greatest auditory offenses against mankind EVER.

He will get plenty of angst and weeping, I promise.

Apparently bad singer sister is a singer in rl. I quote wiki:

"She is a popular Rave, Techno and Trance singer in Korea and most of Asia with many music CDs"

I looked her up on youtube last night after finding this out - and her stuff is just dreadful. They apparently call her the Korean Bjork, but it's got to be because she copies Bjork's hair and look quite shamelessly in one because that is some of the worst techno I've ever heard. And I like techno and electronica so I've heard a lot of crap stuff in my day.

You were right about her offenses against hair. But you never mentioned her almost as traumatizing as her singing dancing 'style.' SO BAD. It's a toss up between the two younger sisters which one I hate more now, though. But I think she has an edge. At least no one makes me listen to the other one singing.
