Review – Ruler of Your Own World
His expression sums up my feelings about this show.
This drama has an “indie” vibe to it. The characters are street-smart, there’s a considerable amount of informal and bad language, and the whole plot feels very realistic, brain tumor and all. Like many indie features, you either get it or you don’t. I didn’t get this drama. It was like watching Holy Smoke with Harvey Keitel and Kate Winslet, or Your Friends and Neighbors. There were so many elements that confused me or infuriated me or just didn’t make sense to me. My biggest qualm being the romance and the most awkward love-triangle of all time.
To be fair – there were some aspects to this drama that I truly enjoyed. Sweet moments, tender moments, beautifully complicated moments. Did they balance out my frustration? Not really. People loved this drama – it has a cult following – but it just didn’t cut it for me. I had to force myself to finish it.
Overall Rating – 6.5/10.
