Usually, I don’t delegate a series to the “Marathon Drama” category until after it has finished airing–giving me time to view the work in its entirety–but W (starring Han Hyo Joo and Lee Jong Seok) is in a category all of its own.
Don’t believe me? I humbly offer you “Exhibit A”: moi.
I am currently in the last few days of the summer term with final term grades due by this Tuesday morning. This means that in addition to the packed schedule I have this weekend, I need to finish grading research papers and final exams.
The sooner, the better.
However, did any of this make an impact on me as I took a short break and watched a small YouTube clip late last night? And then proceeded to marathon episodes 1-4? Late into the wee hours of this morning? O.o
Obviously not. This little twinkie decided that sleep was a luxury she would willingly forego as long as there was another episode to be seen.
*hangs head* Thank goodness the series just started and has only four episodes!
Hmm…I suppose the good news is that I can still fangirl with the best of the
crazed ardent fangirls. Heh. That and the fact that by the time episode 5 airs, my summer term will be completely behind me. >.<
If you haven’t had a chance to start, take a peek at this video…but proceed with caution. If you’re as susceptible as I, you may find yourself foregoing sleep for these episodes…and then some. Granted, this clip isn’t one of the funnier ones, of which there are plenty, but it’s certainly one of the shim koong ones. (Loose translation: warm fuzzies)

Oh, and might I add that I shocked Nelly today by revealing that I watched the series from the beginning, which I rarely do when I have a lot of grading and/or the series is well under way. 😉
If you need another piece of evidence, I offer you “Exhibit B”: It’s a compelling story that is acted out superbly by the entire cast. 🙂 I highly recommend the show.
So…who’s already sucked in and fangirling/fanboying like a teenager? 😉
