I just started Oh My Venus...
I just have a few things to say about this drama thus far 1. So far it's wonderful (ep 4) 2. Most of the characters are lovely, even the "bad" people are kind of okay 3. I like ot when there are lots of actors from other dramas 4. At first I thought the concept was dumb, but I'm excited about it 5. I feel like the hypothyroidism is a cop out for the condition of her body, but people do have it so whatever 6. I lived in Korea and I've seen natives way fatter than her, but again, whatevs 7. I like that they're not just making her diet and exercise, but that overall health and lifestyle changes are being addressed 8. I like all the complicated secondary aspects of the drama like: the asshole dad who really isn't an asshole but because of societal expectations and culture is unable to properly love his son or get over losing his first wife and therefore has unrealistic expectations of his son who is obviously suffering from childhood trauma that has gone untreated; the overbearing grandmother who only sees him and because she is a matriarch cannot properly love her son or afford the other people in his life much grace or affection; the pitiful second wife who only wants validation from her husband and mother-in-law; the half brother who I've only seen for 10 seconds, but who I feel so badly for because of the shitty life he must have due to the aforementioned issues... 9. I live for all the issues in number 8 There is 1 thing I don't like:
10. HENRY LAU IS ANNOYING AF I seriously hate characters that switch between English and Korean mid sentence. It's irratating and unnatural. Please choose one, that is not cute. Sorry, not sorry.
I read some other cards and decided to tag others who are watching, as well as @kpopandkimchi because she is my k-drama bae. @Chrissy2009 @jamimilsap @stacyneroland @MarquesFuqua @hyunsaeng638 @JanetLeonardo91 @YvonJerzak @tusarika @shannawi @Journ505

I thought about watching this but I wasn't so sure about the concept. I'd like to see what it's got going for it though. I'm not sure of her habits in the show, but as someone with hypothyroidism it's hardly a cop out. I ate healthy foods as a child and was extremely active however my weight just never went down or went very slowly. Recently in my teenage/young adult years it's begun to regulate ever so slightly. I haven't been as active due to certain situations, but I eat healthy still and my weight doesn't budge much unless I work out EVERY single day. So, maybe it's just trying to be a bit realistic? Unless of course she's stuffing her face with pies and cakes and junk food but calls it hypothyroidism...
