Final Review: Lookout And Why Its A Must-Watch

First off, lets take a second to appreciate Kim Young Kwang and all his perfection.

If youre like me, you didnt expect much from this drama at first, but after just the first episode, you quickly got sucked in. Am I right?

Lookout was the Monday and Tuesday drama that was going head-to-head with Fight My Way. It was definitely an underdog in comparison to Fight My Way, which was getting a lot of publicity, but let me tell you. This drama is so worth the watch.  Its been one of the better K-dramas Ive seen in awhile. Here are some reasons why you should watch:

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" Episode 16 (Final)

We've made it to the final episode of "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" and what an eventful journey it has been. From silly gangsters, to doppelgangers, to evil kidnappers, to the strong woman herself, this drama has fit in a little of just about everything. Let's talk about the finale and send off this drama with happy hearts.

Jang-hyeon is jailed to his fury. The process of getting him to jail was anticlimactic, but it pales in comparison to the happenings of Bong-soon's new life. Now she is in a happy relationship and has decided to use her strength for good. She goes out of her way to help and begins to suffer the side effects of heroism: problems in regular life. These problems are not addressed in the slightest. Instead, they're left to be addressed by the characters after the show has ended. How does Bong-soon deal with work and hero-ing? How does Min-hyeok deal with his twin baby super hero girls? How does society deal with the mysterious help that it's been receiving? All of that is left open-ended, which isn't bad. What we do know is that Bong-soon's family and Min-hyeok support her, her powers, her work in society, and her happiness.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Saimdang: Light's Diary" Episode 28 Final

The ending to "Saimdang: Light's Diary" is more anticlimactic than anything else. The bad guys are almost immediately brought to justice because one essential character changes sides, and CCTV footage which should have been exposed, I don't know, a dozen episodes ago suddenly pops up out of nowhere and decisively proves that Jeong-hak was a fink all along. Meanwhile, in the past, King Jungjong is sad because it has suddenly occurred to him that persecuting artists is bad.

As for Saimdang, in a bizare twist, the production teams allows her to be angelic and forgiving toward Won-soo's adultery while still allowing her spectral form to cavort with Lee Gyum in dream world Italy. Incidentaly, it would seem that the Italians took Ji-yoon's discovery of a famous Korean artist who was active in the Renaissance a great deal more seriously than the Koreans did. The castle where all this got stated has now been fabulously restored.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People" Episode 30 Final

In a peculiar twist, it turns out that Gil-dong and friends did not, in fact, achieve even cursory reforms as a part of a a settlement when they beat King Yeonsangun's army in direct combat. All they got was...I guess some sort of license to continue wandering around the countryside beating up corrupt nobles without anyone interfering. Beyond that, the final episode mainly goes into the various fates of the characters aligned with King Yeonsangun.

The fates of all the villains are fairly logical and even thematically consistent considering what "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People" was aiming for. I just find it a little weird that in the end, it's the villains and only the villains who have the character traits necessary for their ending to have much meaning. Gil-dong's side, their motivation was always just to help out Gil-dong and fight injustice.
