Shut up and…RUN!
“I really want to succeed. But if there’s a one percent chance I can do it with my friends and not alone, then I want to go together. Even if it takes a long time. The only thing we have a lot of… is time.” – Lee Hyun-soo
It’s true…drama is just a drama. Fiction is just a fiction. They’re just writer’s creation. But believe it or not…in some way, drama or fiction or story has something that we can learn and understand, because after all the director and scriptwriter are human too…like us.
I’m not gonna write a review or anything…I just want to say that I was wrong about this series. Yeah, I underestimate it. Because I thought story about music and band only well adapted into drama by Japanese (look at how awesome BANDAGE and Beck). But Shut Up Flower Boy Band just shut me up completely!
It was well-written, with very good casts and characters, very very good soundtracks [`Not In Love’ is just echoing in my head], interesting and real conflicts, energetic spirit and warm friendships and of course….ehm..flower boys. :p But the most important is…it’s full of heart. Without any melodrama or cheesy-annoying romance scene. [no offense, but I’m not in the age of melodrama viewers :p]
“There’s no band that lasts forever. Oasis, Beatles, Queen. They’re all break-up. But that’s not true. U2, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith. There are lots of bands still around too.” – Rock Kim
Who wouldn’t love it? A story about bunch youngsters with such a big dream and passion about music named Eye Candy. They’re reckless, unafraid, captivating, idealistic and loyal. They’re facing loss, love, defeat, break-ups, make-ups, success, fights, failure, loneliness, and of course…harsh reality in music industry. But you know, what is the part that I love the most? How they’re growing up because of that things. It’s hard, right? We’re all hate to grow up…but nothing we can do. Everyone’s growing up.
“It’s time we each make a real decision – about what we really want, what we want to do, what we need to do.” – Kwon Ji-hyuk
And, friends…growing up doesn’t mean that we have to lose each other, right? *tears*
The last episode is the best part. I love to see how they overcome their own ‘battle’ and to value what they’ve been accomplished. I love this show give us ‘a blank page’ about their gray future and how they have confidence to face whatever future ahead them. It feels so real…and lovely.
Yeah, this is what’s growing up is all about. You may not stay the same, maybe your dream changes, maybe you lose some thing…but you gain more and you’re stronger now.
Aaah…it makes me happy! Definitely worth to watch, and I recommend you to do so…[but girls, please watch out…if not, you’re gonna lose your mind because of L…lol].
John Lennon said, ‘The Beatles are more famous than Jesus.’ We’re not famous or special. But we’re just doing what we want, right now. The world that surrounds us is gray and we can’t see our futures. But for now we just shut up and run… To the time that’s waiting for us. – Kwon Ji-hyuk
