Is Let Me Be Your Knight a revolutionary drama? Not at all. But not all dramas need to have some deeper meaning to be enjoyable. I really enjoyed this drama that was about a successful K-POP band that is dealing with some eternal issues. Their leader Yoon Tae In is suffering from sleepwalking that is putting his life in danger if you think about it. The other members are also dealing with their own little side issues. Lee Shin is having a secret romance with his radio host co-star who is an older woman and a divorcee. Woo Ga On their maknae is carrying around an old school secret that comes out eventually. Kim Yoo Chan, the charismatic drummer wants more for his career than just being in a band. And then there is Seo Woo Yeon, our bland second lead, or so they lead us to believe. And the story and cast wouldn’t be complete without In Yoon Joo, our broke FL who is on the run from loan sharks and pretends to be her estranged twin sister who is also a psychiatrist and goes to be the live-in doctor to cure Tae In.

From all that, the plot is basically laid out for you and you can predict every twist and turn with your eyes closed. Is that a bad thing? Not really. Watching this show was like eating a bag of Doritios in an updated packaging. The story was not new and the fact that Tae In fell for In Yoo Joo was hella predicted. It was also predictable that Seo Woo Yeon would be also in love with In Yoon Joo and he eventually finds out her secret before anyone else. Proving that maybe he is the better choice for our FL. But is he? His love for her made no sense.

What also didn’t make sense about this show was the time that certain things were dedicated. They spent so much time on Lee Shin and his secret relationship, just to it to resolve with a whisper instead of a bang. So when the true twist of the show came about, it felt rushed and had no clear backstory. It was easy to understand but at that point, why did I the viewer, care?

Did I still get butterflies during the sweet romantic moments? Were the comedic setups perfect timing for the show? ALL YES! Like I said, this wasn’t a bad show, just a regular ass Dorito. Well, maybe a cool ranch one because the soundtrack was bussin and truly the best thing to come from the show. Like I need these actual idols to make a subgroup and become what DAY6 used to be.
