Where to Watch The Great Show
Cast & Credits
I actually only watched this drama because of Lee Sun Bin. I am a big fan of Running Man, and Lee Kwang Soo, a member of Running Man, is Lee Sun Bin's boyfriend. Prior to The Great Show, I watched 38 Task Force (Lee Sun Bin was also in this drama); 38 Task Force was a great drama (though it has nothing to do with the great show I just wanted to share), a drama about a group of people making the world a better place with the use of their conning skills. Another Drama, My Fellow Citizens, is a bit similar to both dramas mentioned above; there's conning involved also the main protagonist is trying to get into the national assembly.
To cut down to the chase, I was disappointed with The Great Show. The main selling point of this drama is the character development, and they did a fairly good job portraying that. But what was lacking for me was the overall impact of the story. Watching this drama didn't keep me glued to my seat, but rather I wanted the drama to finish quickly just so I can witness how everything ends. And to my disappointment, even the ending was not satisfying, to say the least; I dare say that the entire plot was worthless because of the ending. The writer tried to make a happy ending where every character had a happy ending with the expense of the main protagonist's childhood dream. All in all, this isn't a drama you should watch if you want a story you could connect with, it's more of a drama you could choose if there's barely any left for you to watch.
I have no idea why this is higher than My Fellow Citizens, or why My Fellow Citizens has such a low rating to be more specific. My Fellow Citizens was a lot funnier than the Great Show, and the plot was a lot more intriguing.
