The first episode of Summer strike aired on November 21st and the 6th episode aired on December 6th. The drama has 12 episodes and so we are already halfway through the drama.
Lee Yeo Reum is kind, caring, loves reading and is friendly in general. However, she has a long way to go. She doesn’t have a voice yet. She needs to stand up for herself and she needs to speak up for her friends as well.
Episode 1: While breaking up with her, her boyfriend tells her something worth thinking: The question isn’t why did they do it to you, the question is what did you do after it. This is in context to when her colleague and manager send her to buy premium coffee and by the time she is back, the colleague is giving her presentation. The fact here is: She let them walk all over her. And her boyfriend pointed it out.
Episode 3: When the dog follows her and she grows fond of him she comes to know that the dog belongs to the women who was going the buy the place that she is renting. When asked for $400 for the dog, she just gives her the money.
Episode 6: When her friend Bom is in hospital she shouts at her when Bom wants to tell police the truth. As a friend, she should do better. She should help her friend stand up for her.
What I expect from Yeo Reum’s character
I am hoping that her character grows, she learns how to stand up for herself and her friends. She finds the strength to ask for what is rightfully hers.
An Dae Beom is thoughtful, understanding and caring. He does all the right things and I am so happy that he is living his life the way he wants to without thinking about the expectations of the society.
What I expect from An Dae Beoms character
I want him to be able to speak his mind. I want him to have the courage to say things that he does and why he does them. I want him to tell her librarian friend that she doesn’t have to dictate his life.
So, we are halfway through and there is a lot that’s yet to happen.
Each episode has a little story but if we are halfway already, we should see some progress, some growth, something more. That’s missing.
I don’t want the drama to pace up all of a sudden but I do want to see a little more of depth in the story.
Let’s see where it goes from here.
