MASK [Review]

“I guess we all need someone to lean on. We need someone, not medicine.” Min Woo (Mask)

Where did it go wrong? The directing was great, the drama was so hyped up at the time, the acting definitely felt confident but at some point, it lost its appeal. Mask is another makjang drama from the writer, Choi Ho Chul, the one who also wrote the super makjang yet amazing drama called Secret. I don’t know where it went wrong. The two dramas are definitely makjang but one is beautifully written and one feels like choppily written. Mask was off to a great start, it was strong and fast-paced. The first few episodes were fun to watch then –if I’m not mistaken- on ep 7, the story went downhill. It did pick up on ep 9, but few episodes later the story wasn’t fun anymore.

There is this one formula that I think most of k-dramas do, it starts with a bang, gets stale in the middle and either give another bang at the end or completely ruin it. Mask followed the formula even though I have mixed feeling about the final episode. It was good, but it didn’t succeed in keeping me entirely focus watching it. Trust me, it took me WEEKS to finish the final episode. More
