105. High School King of Savvy 고교처세왕 (2014) Korean

Seo In Guk,  Lee Ha Na, Lee Soo Hyuk, Lee Yul Eum

Drama Rating: 5/10     Neck Score: A++

What... the... heck... I don't think this show actually had a plot.  It was just a situation.  No wonder it was super hard for me to get into it.  I designated it my "work out" show because there was no motivation to watch it, because nothing actually happened.  It was just funny and cute with no real action.  Just a situation.  A high school kid has to pretend to be his older brother and work as a director for this big company.  It pretended to have a plot for like two episodes... episodes 14 and 15 to be exact, but then it was resolved so quickly so there was no point really.  Then after that it got extremely boring... and completely ridiculous.  Seriously ridiculous.  The last episode was outright stupid.  Whatever.  I think the only thing that made this show work at all was the actors.  Seo In Guk can pull off everything from the high schooler to his cool older brother.  I loved the two high schooler best friends and the little sister.  Loved, loved, loved the grandpa.  Also, as I said in an post earlier, Lee Soo Hyuk is super super hot.  That man... that part when he was crying in the rain and his hair was all wet.  Actually his character had the most plot out of all of them.  He had a situation and drove the action along when anything ever happened.  Also he and Seo In Guk had a fun bromance.  Lee Ha Na was amazing at being so naturally awkward.  Props to her.  I have a hard time not believing that that's the way she is in real life.  It was very outlandish and not typical, and that is something on the positive side.  It was constantly funny and cute, but lacked the driving force that an actual plot would give you.  It didn't need to be that long and it needed to have more action, although it was plenty funny.  At least the characters were all lovable, and the cameos were great.  Loved it and hated it at the same time, but mostly just because it was long, draggy, and ridiculous.  The last episode just kept going, and going, and going...
