Today, Xenews will show Mackerel Run Review! Are you excited and expected to this interesting drama? Get ready with us!
I have to confess I only watched this K-comedy for actor Lee Min Ho. I wanted to satisfy my curiosity if there was a special spark that was noticeable about this now amazingly popular Korean actor way back in 2007 when he was basically just starting to get into the industry and few people knew who he was. The answer? Yes! He was cute because of the dickens during this early teen-themed Korean TV show; while he was rather awkward-looking he could do kooky scenes and heavy scenes yet, and he really stood out from the opposite cast members, who to my mind were nice but rather bland and unremarkable (sorry!).
While this comedy shows Lee Min Ho was adept at both comedy and drama, even ahead of time, this show is hard of Boys Over Flowers caliber, or City Hunter, or Faith, or Personal Taste, so I won’t spend that much time thereon. It had been a small, lightweight K-drama that just about will only attract the teenage – early twenties age crowd of fans who obsess over this actor. I’ll allow you to discover it for yourself and frame your own mind.
The Story of Mackerel Run
The drama revolves around a male high school-aged student named Gong-chan Cha (Lee Min Ho) who is enrolled in a very competitive school called Myoung-mun High, within the affluent Gangnam area of Seoul. However, he was only accepted thanks to his excellent soccer skills, not for academics. When he quits the game he finds himself an outcast at the varsity, grows despondent, and starts playing hooky lots.
One day a fine-looking new girl transfers to the varsity, named Yoon Seo Min (Moon Chae Won, Good Doctor, Painter Of The Wind) before she became famous, too), and when she walks into his class, Gong-chan falls enamored initially sight, and everything changes in his attitude toward school and life. He’s finally passionate about visiting the school, but the varsity administrator warns him that he is expelled if he misses even another day. Gong-chan vows that he won’t hand over on either his school life or his love, but can he live up to his own promise to himself?
What does one think? Can our Lee Min Ho do it? He can do EVERYTHING, right??? 🙂
This short teenage drama isn’t a poet, but heck, Lee Min Ho isn’t exactly chopped kimchi, now could be he?
