After watching 3 episodes consecutively, the drama withdrawal syndrome strikes again. Episode 2 continues without managing to change my first impressions about the drama. But at least we finally get a glimpse of the school grounds of the mysterious Moorim School and I'm laughing because I look at the red brick walls thinking, isn't this Kirin Arts High School?
The two punks are at it again bickering over every little thing since they became each other's roommate from hell. Wang Chi Ang (Hong Bin) is forced by his father to be there while Yoon Shi Woo (Lee Hyun Woo) is going deaf and has nowhere to go after his scandal exploded.
Granted Yoon Shi Woo's bad attitude doesn't exactly help his case, but It bothers me how the self-righteous Soon Duk was unabashedly unapologetic and refused to help him even after seeing that the false rumors she spread were ruining his life. I know she will obviously clear his name in due time but it was frustrating to drag things along and what of the constant fighting between the two guys who are looking more and more like brats, is it necessary?
Thankfully, the end of the episode sealed the deal for me and I remembered why I like martial arts dramas because that fight scene was pretty cool. You'll see >.<
Unfortunately for the boys, fighting is not allowed in the school so they are automatically expelled. Since neither refused to go willingly, Dean Hwang makes a deal with them that the person to bring back the markings from Moorim Peak can stay in the school. This was also the turning point of why I will continue watching this drama because finally, things are starting to get interesting - there's action, a budding bromance and a strengthening camaraderie between the four leads. If I can hope, please no love triangle, can't it be a square?
