The Thunder Boys are K-pop heartthrobs whose talent agency has left them in hot water: The company is in financial trouble and has been struggling to pay its staff. The five-member group comprises leader Choi Ho Rang, dance supremo Shin Tae Ho, rapper Jo Yi Joon, lead singer Eun Young Min, and the super-popular Yoon Sang Woo. The boys are thrown a curveball when their agency’s financial troubles lead to them taking charge of a struggling supermarket – and tasked with turning its fortunes around. The boys have never known anything but K-pop, but all of a sudden need to learn how to stock-take, stack shelves, work tills, chop meat, and gut fish! Can they turn the supermarket into a local success story – and re-start their musical careers while they’re at it? (Source: Viki) Edit Translation

(bad) y/n fanfic meets k-drama

This is pretty much a fanfic adapted into a k-drama, so don't go into it with too high expectations.

Overall, it was an ok-ish watch. I would have liked to see better acting (particularly from Lee Sin Young, as he was supposed to be the "main" lead of the show—he had the emotional range of a plank of wood for most of it), and a different ending. Just let the evil guy be evil. Why throw in a pointless "oh, he's just lashing out because he's hurt" twist? The guy schemed, lied, cheated and stole with the objective of tearing down the mart to erect a building there. Evil is, as evil does; the villain should have been defeated and sent to jail.

Also, I didn't get what the point of Gina, the girl idol was. Her relationship drama with Young Min added absolutely nothing to the story. Same as the love triangle barely hinted at between Ho Rang, Ye Rim and Tae Ho.

I feel like a better writer could have actually made a fun, enjoyable show out of the premise of a bunch of estranged, washed-up idols running a mart together, like for example if Ye Rim had been a super fan of Thunder Boys, and thus had vested interest in them making up and being successful in running the business together (plus, her quietly losing her mind out of excitement over meeting her favorite idols at first, only to eventually learn they are just normal people would have been a fun, meaningful development). Disappointing, really.

Very Disappointing. Expectation vs Reality indeed.

So disappointed with this. It's the 8th episode already but the phasing is too slow for a short 10 episode series and the acting is so cringy, from dull to nada.. there's too much element where the actors should be acting like it's real, like REAL.. but instead, their reaction is like dafuq.. seriously? I love Minseok and Hyungwon, but c'mon you guys can be better than this.. and Shinyoung, my gawd you're acting becomes horrible, the director and producer of this series must be really horrible as well.

I hope I still have the will to wait and watch next week for EP9-10. Just saying.
