Are ‘Faith’ and ‘Arang and the Magistrate’ Putting Lee Joon Gi and Lee Min Ho to Good Use?
MBC’s Arang and the Magistrate and SBS’ Faith, both of which have gathered great interest as the comeback pieces of hallyu stars Lee Joon Gi and Lee Min Ho, actually haven’t been doing very well. In viewership ratings, the situation isn’t too bad, because both have been garnering a little over 10 percent, but most of the viewers in that 10 percent say that they’re just watching because of Lee Joon Gi and Lee Min Ho, not because the dramas are any good. The dramas’ viewer boards are covered with posts reading, ‘When is Lee Min Ho going to play a part? Kim Hee Sun, Ryu Deok Hwan and Choi Min Soo seem to have more weight’ and ‘Lee Joon Gi just chases after Shin Min Ah’s coattails; I think this drama should be titled “Arang” and not Arang and the Magistrate.’ Viewers agree that they watch because they like the leads, but the quality of the dramas don’t live up to their leads’ names. Viewers say that the problem with Arang and the Magistrate and Faith is that they are either too unfriendly or too friendly. It is true that Arang and the Magistrate is supposed to be a mystery drama, but it has been throwing out too many unanswered questions and no clues, only leaving viewers confused and cutting off any hopes of solving the mystery. The most recent third and fourth episodes contained many questions, but the story progressed so slowly that no clues were uncovered. How Arang (Shin Min Ah) died, why the Great Jade Emperor (Yoo Seung Ho) and the King of the Underworld (Park Joon Kyu) are listening closely to Arang’s story or how Arang is related to the incident that occurred 400 years ago still remain as big unanswered mysteries. On top of that, the drama continues to pile up on the questions, such as what it is Moo Young (Han Jung Su) regrets in his past life, why Joo Wal (Yeon Woo Jin) needs to deliver young girls to a mysterious woman at the full moon or why Lord Choi (Kim Yong Gun) is at odds with his foster son Joo Wal. There are even more mysteries outside of the obvious stated in the drama, such as how Arang’s body managed to survive in the earth without decay, how Eun Oh (Lee Joon Gi) can see ghosts and fight so well even though he’s not a shaman and why Arang has Eun Oh’s mother’s hairpin or why Lee Seo Rim’s body doesn’t. Viewers have said, ‘I think Lee Joon Gi’s talent is being wasted. He’s just chasing Arang around, and he has less character than even those other supporting roles’, ‘Lee Joon Gi just seems to be Arang’s romantic partner. The magistrate is nowhere to be seen; there’s only Arang’, ‘Please don’t sell this overseas in Lee Joon Gi’s name’ and ‘The story is so slow.’ Faith, on the other hand, has been put under fire for opposite reasons. The drama is said to be too repetitive in its attempts to be friendly. Although the real main character is Kim Hee Sun’s ‘doctor from the heavens,’ most viewers watch the drama to see Lee Min Ho. Nevertheless, the only thing the Goryeo warrior Choi Young, who Lee Min Ho plays, has done so far is get stabbed with knives, fall down and get up again. Explanations of each character pop up too often in flashbacks, making the main story too boring. The third and fourth episodes used 20 minutes each to explain why King Gong Min (Ryu Deok Hwan) and Princess No Guk (Park Se Young) are so cold toward each other and why Choi Young doesn’t want to live anymore. Viewers took to the boards to point out, ‘Is this really a 10 billion won drama?’, ‘The cameo Choi Min Soo looked more like the lead than Lee Min Ho’ and ‘The animations and awkward special effects cover up Lee Min Ho’s acting.’ Will Arang and the Magistrate and Faith be able to put their male leads to proper use and grab the attention of their viewers anytime soon? Viewers can only hope. Photo credit: MBC, SBS
MBC Strike: What This Means for Kpop Fans
MBC is finally going on strike which is completely not normal for Korea. As you probably know, the working culture in Korea is insane, especially in the entertainment industry where everyone involved (not just the actors) often work 20-23 hours a day. There have recently been un uptick in suicides by writers and producers because of the immense stress put on them. MBC is also known here in Korea to be under the control of bigger powers, such as the old president who was impeached. Rather than sharing the real news, the anchors were forced to spin stories to be positive for the president and to support her because the owners of the station were being put under pressure by the corrupt government. Basically MBC is just bad news, and the workers are sick of it. As of this week, the workers have all stopped coming to work meaning unless something was previously recorded, there will be no news, no radio, no dramas, no nothing, until they get what they want (way better working conditions and probably a way better CEO) Because of this, it looks like a music festival has been cancelled as well. BTS V and Twice Dahyun were going to host it and its line up would have included BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet, B1A4, BTOB, Teen Top, B.A.P, MAMAMOO, GFRIEND, BLACKPINK, iKON, EXID, NU’EST W, Lovelyz, ASTRO, and PRISTIN. To be honest, I don't really care that this was cancelled, as I'd much rather have thousands of people's lives improved than watch a few groups perform one or two songs each that we've already heard before. I'm sad if this was anyone's one chance to see these groups live (like if they were vacationing to korea) but in the long run I think it will help a lot more people than it will inconvenience. Here's to hoping the working conditions of people behind the shows we love so much improve greatly <3
