So in addition to being Lazy, I am also very cheap which should have been noted by the fact that I would like to be a Sugar Baby. So anyways, to make a long story short, your girl was stuck with KOCOWA subscription realizing that she barely watches anything on the site and thus after cancelling, decided she needed to make the remaining 6 days of her subscription count. I recently finished Extracurricular with Lazy Unnie and decided that I may as well check out A-teen because it was short and would likely not cause me much harm. Also, I have been hearing how good the drama is that I definitely had to give it a go.
I was pleasantly surprised by what I found tbh.This drama is actually pretty decent.It was short and sweet and did a pretty good job at keeping the viewers engaged. I will admit that I was definitely more into seeing Do Ha Na’s storyline more than anything because I really wanted to see what Shin Ye Eun had to offer and like I’m not watching that cat show soooo LOL. I also enjoyed seeing how differently both Kim Dong Hee was acting in this when compared to his little bitch ass in Extracurricular and considering how much I disliked Seung Ho’s character in At Eighteen. Matter of fact, I see the genuine talent within those three. Naeun from KPOP group April, is a little harder simply because I felt like Kim Ha Na was somewhat similar to her character in Extraordinary You which she did an okay job in. The other two were more of a comedic relief and bridge between characters.
The story was actually quite authentic even if it was at predictable, but the pacing was so well done that it didn’t feel alarmingly terrible to digest. Overall, you’re not missing much with this one and it actually is worth watching because it is quick and easy. I enjoy that the focus of this season was Do Ha Na and the friendships and I have heard that the second season is more focused on Kim Ha Na and relationships so I do believe I will pass on that. Ooopsie.
Rewatch Value: 7/10
