[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Sing Again, Hera Gu" Episode 4 2015/01/30,
So, the dark secrets regarding Se-chan and his separated twin brother are...not really explained that well actually. Well, sometimes people get babies confused. It happens. I mean let's be honest most babies look identical anyway. Actually I find myself wondering about their father...no, never mind. I don't want to know. If he's not in the picture that means he'll probably re-enter the story in a comically melodramatic way and "Sing Again, Hera Gu" is already constantly trying my patience with exaggerated tragedy,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Sing Again, Hera Gu" Episode 3 2015/01/23,
Apparently the first two episodes were just a prologue- the plot actually starts now, as He-ra tries to fulfill Se-chan's last wishes and bring the band back together. Note that the main important storyline point the drama needed to establish for this to work was just to show the six lead characters being buddies, but up until this episode they've barely even shared any screen time. Well, whatever. I'm mostly just relieved that "Sing Again, Hera Gu" has stopped with the excessive melodrama,...More

If I didn't know better I'd think this drama was deliberately trying to antagonize me. This episode has the exact same flaws and virtues that I discussed last time- except there's more flaw and less virtue. We have one really good, really fun song to start the episode out out. Then there's a big conversation about betrayal and the three characters not in the love triangle are almost completely sidelined as the whole episode turns into serious emotional drama about characters who have little defined motivation outside of childhood flashbacks,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Sing Again, Hera Gu" Episode 1 2015/01/09,
Usually it takes multiple episodes for a drama to have issues with pacing and build-up, yet somehow "Sing Again, Hera Gu" manages to screw this up right from the start. First we get the actual auditions, then a huge ridiculously long portion that goes over the drama's love triangle in minute, tiring detail, and finally we get back to the music competition just in time for a cliffhanger right when things are about to get interesting. I'm not terribly surprised to learn that this drama has three credited writers and two directors, only one of whom seems to have any serious prior experience,...More
