Strongest K Pop Survival Episode I Recap

(My Korean isn’t perfect so I might have made a few mistakes. Please overlook and forgive, if any :)!  I also did not understand the episode 100% so there’s many things I am hazy about. Still, I hope to give you an idea about what is happening.  All in all, I hope you enjoy the recap!)

The drama may not be as original as it could be but its definitely fun to watch, especially if you’re a fan of this genre. As it is, the story has already been exploited a lot (Most famous: You’re Beautiful) and the premise of this one is just as familiar-the hero is with a killer smile and charisma which masks his mean spirit while our heroine, Ji Seung Yeon dreams of becoming a hip-hop legend but unexpectedly ends up dressing as male idol to join M2, the idol band of which Hyun Woo is the leader. I’m already loving Seung Yeon’s look and the encounters between Hyun Woo and Seung Yeon are fun to watch, despite knowing what to expect next. Most of all what’s fun is the characters of Seung Yeon and Ji Woo. Like their grandmother says, they accidently switched personalities when they were born because the girl Seung Yeon is as boyish as she can be, confident and outspoken while Ji Woo couldn’t be more shy or nervous and interested in cooking! All in all, for now, I view it as a good time pass series. It’s fun, enjoyable and gives a few laughs. If it does more ahead or moves into original territory or explores the interactions and sequences with flair, I’ll like it even more! 😉
