DROPPED: I said what I said below and I'd say it again.
I physically and mentally can not bring myself to finish this shit show.

I tried. I really tired. From the synopsis to the start of the show, I was hooked. Even with the ridiculous CGI, it was amazing. But as it went on -- the show just got worse and worse to the point it was like dragging my eyeballs across sand and broken glass. I would try multiple times to start a episode and end up cutting it off 5 minutes in (if even that)

Even then, I tried to give this show the benefit, I still tried to watch and I started noticing a pattern (mind you, i tried watching this as soon as it was airing) that any and every time views dipped, they would drop something BTS related and views would rocket again. So believe it or not, they really did use BTS and their fans for their own gain for a shitty show.
I honestly feel like this show would have tanked from the start if they hadn't seen the reaction that BTS poster gained.
-- and can we talk about that scene though?
Why would you use Spring Day? I'm disgusted they used a song for a tragedy in this show. (but the setting -- I don't care. Don't come at me. It's a show, fake. That tragedy was a real thing. And not only that, the actress didn't even know the song. I don't know what the hell she was humming/half-assed singing, but it wasn't what was playing. (Spring Day)

I'm sure to some, the show got bad ass after all the cringe, frankly, I guess I will never know. As much as I hate dropping shows, I just can't do this one. It makes me frustrated.
