The story of Dao, the not so sánh bright star

Xem thêm: vtvgiaitri quỳnh búp bê

The biggest problem with Star in My Mind is the fact that it only has two real characters, and the entire plot is driven by one of them. Unlike almost every single BL in existence, this show is exclusively about Dao and Kluen, and every aspect revolves around Dao. There are no side characters, nobody has a story or plot outside of things that directly affect Dao. No character has motivations, a plot, interactions or even scenes if Dao is not a part, or is the topic. So, if you don’t lượt thích Dao, lượt thích mạ by the kết thúc, there’s nothing left đồ sộ lượt thích. And that’s such a shame, because the friends showed enough charisma đồ sộ help Star in My Mind.

Dao is the worst type of protagonist, the type that’s dumb, really dumb. And he’s paired with a love interest that’s not good with expressing his feelings. That’s a great combination for disaster. Dao was unable đồ sộ get any of the signs from Kluen, when they were so sánh obvious that everyone else knew. And that’s even worse if we consider that, the biggest moments were just between them, so sánh other people didn’t even know about. Like the birthday dinner with the mom, the talk by the poll, the “have a safe fight” line, the backstage talk during the contest… I’m not even going đồ sộ mention the “fake boyfriends for 24h” ideia. It’s probably the worst plot device ever created đồ sộ separate a couple in a BL, even worse than vãn the famous “someone is traveling đồ sộ another country in the last episode”, which, in this case, was how the story started.

It also really rubbed mạ the wrong way how Dao handled the moment when Kluen had đồ sộ go off đồ sộ help Gia. That was the moment when he crossed into unlikable territory for mạ. Kluen was clearly shaken when talking đồ sộ her on the phone. So, I have zero sympathy for Dao at that moment, specially when he tried đồ sộ make Kluen choose between him and Gia. By looking at his reaction, you’d think Kluen was running away with his ex and leaving Dao at the alter. They weren’t even boyfriends at that point!

Dao reminds mạ a bit of Kao, from Dark Blue Kiss, who also suffered from a complete inability đồ sộ tell people he was not interested, and chaos followed. But Kao had a major advantage, he was part of a pair that had several sweet and romantic scenes. Dao on the other hand, spent the entire series being in love with Kluen, but suddenly decides đồ sộ play it cool when he finally got Kluen đồ sộ admit he’s been in love him him for years.

These two have been in love for 2/3 years. They’ve given each other all the signs that the feelings are mutual. But even after the kisses and confessions, I got zero romantic chemistry between them even in their most romantic scenes, lượt thích at the kết thúc of episode 7. Honestly, I would’ve expected Dao đồ sộ love hearing Kluen Hotline him his boyfriend, kiss him or Hotline him Dao.

I also have a major problem with how this show decided đồ sộ use Georgia being in a violent relationship as a cheap trick đồ sộ cause conflict. This series doesn’t have the capacity of tackling such a delicate and serious issue.

This was Dunk’s first role, and starting as a protagonist is not easy. But, it was very clear that the emotional scenes were very weak, specially if he needed đồ sộ cry. I feel lượt thích Dao should’ve been way more emotional in several moments, lượt thích the conversation at the bridge or the confession in the parking lot. There were a few tears, but I didn’t really feel it from him in those moments. In happy scenes I think the acting was better. Outside of the show, be on social truyền thông media or videos, Joong and Dunk really seem đồ sộ have a good chemistry, but that didn’t translate into the screen, specially in the romantic department.

Episode 8 really didn’t need đồ sộ exist, since nothing really happens, and the bracelet scene could’ve been the ending of episode 7. The connection between Star and Sky could have been a short bonus đoạn Clip after the credits.
