Also known as “Master: God of Noodles.”
I have to admit to laughing upon reading the synopsis for this drama. Like, he’s taking revenge via noodles? Regardless, with nothing to watch, I found myself checking out the drama and so far, so good.
I thought Baro was pretty good as the young Kim Gil Do. His take was quite different from what someone like Lee Joon would do but I think it fits the grown up character. While he’s depraved and evil, I think that most of all, this psycho is selfish. So he doesn’t hesitate to kill people and steal their identities because all he cares about is what’s he’s getting out of it. And these people are simply obstacles to him.
But is it not crazy that so far, both men who’ve learned of his past tried to protect him but he just saw them as potential problems and eliminated them? Really crazy dude. And how funny is it that a restaurateur is some sort of don? I fully expect him to be running some illegal businesses too.
I didn’t read much about this drama before watching it so I was surprised by the random girl who popped up to steal soy sauce. Who is she and how does she fit in this story? I suppose we’ll find out next week. And there’ll be a romance with Tae Ha, right? Am I the only one who’s still wigged out by his character in Signal? I scream at any woman he’s in a scene with to run the hell away! LOL. It’s crazy because I’m sure he’s not evil here but my brain keeps telling me he is.
It’s early days and I’m not yet interested in the romance but I hope that changes as we get to know the characters better. All I’m wondering now is when the orphanage director will tell Gil Do about Moo Myung. I feel he’s hatefully refusing to do so because he doesn’t want him to have a better life. Which is one of the few times that someone’s petty hatefulness might be a blessing.
