Calling it a "sequel" will only make a lot of Goong
fans scrutinize it more.
Like you said, making it a BRAND new drama, separate from Goong
will probably be best.
No offense to this drama, though. I am going to support it, but I just don't like them calling it a "sequel".
I definitely agree with you.
Maybe that's exactly what the production staff wants to do: get Goong fans to scrutinize it so that it brings up good publicity.
However, at the same time wouldn't that be double-edged sword for them?
The major opinion of the Goong fans right now is that Goong 2 "Prince Hours" is going to mess up the great impression that Goong "Princess Hours" left.
Perhaps I wouldn't have been so upset if from the beginning the producers had said that there would be no second season to Goong. The first season ended well
, with the "baby" question answered by those adorable teddy bears.
However, when, during Goong I 1/2, they came back and said that it wasn't pregnancy but actually "food poisoning", many ears perked up. Although many thought that a continuation of the plot would cause the entire series to be overdone, I was curious what they would unleash in the second season.
BUT NOW.. they disappoint all of us again by telling us that Goong 2 is nothing close to what Goong was.
Of course, whenever subs come out, I'll definitely support Goong 2, just with less fervor than I would've if it hadn't given me such a disappointing first impression.
