When I first saw the word omnibus I had no idea what that meant and googled it to figure out that it meant a collection of dramas. If that’s what omnibus dramas means then I am not a fan of omnibus dramas. Correct me if I am wrong but these dramas just tend to be a collection of stories that have a similar theme but the stories don’t relate to each other at all. It’s just like watching a couple of short stories and I don’t like that. I think this is one of the reason that I don’t like to watch movie as much. I like dramas because I get to delve deeper, unravel mysteries, and spend more time to get to know the characters more.
However I would watch it because of Jung Joon Young. I loved his antics and 4D personality in We Got Married where he partnered up with Jung Yoo Mi. Although I felt that he was not the type of guy I would like, I fell in love with his music and surprisingly deep voice. He’s so different than other guys who were in We Got Married. He could take a romantic song and turn it into comedy. I feel that he is what a real guy would be like- playing games and not wanting to do anything but joking around. When I heard that he was casted in 1N2D, I felt he was designed for that role. However, I am still in season 1 of 1N2D and haven’t gotten to see him yet so I am glad he is casted in a drama and would get a chance to see him.
What do you think about this new omnibus drama? Excited or nah?
