#방과 후 복불복2
School’s back in session, and everybody’s favorite group of boys (reprised by the idol group 5urprise) are back for a new semester of extracurricular antics.
This season, the magical mentors reassemble with their newly elected leader (played by Song Joo Hee of Hello Venus), a bashful student who quickly discovers a new breed of cram school that’s full of wondrous adventures and life lessons.
Netflix doesn’t have season one of Lucky or Not: After School, they do have season two and that’s what I’m focusing on for this review. While I hear season one is funnier, I will have to watch it on YouTube to really get my own opinion of it.
This season is a new take on the pick-a-mission club. The characters are refreshing, with new personalities. Tae Hwan & Tae Ho changed their names from the first season, and Eun and Kang Joon didn’t act in the 2nd season because they were busy with other dramas. This is not a continuation of season 1. This show has many different titles, but keep in mind it’s intended to be light and short, a mini drama, for viewing on your mobile (manga style).
The season opens with a rather insignificant person asking to join the club, grovelling if you will. In translations it’s called “pick-a-mission club”. The show focuses on five good friends, who prove themselves by doing the challenges set forth in the club, then a girl and her friend (he reluctantly joins, for her) join the club. She starts to draw out of herself.
Its a fun show, and I really enjoyed it. The guy with the baby, keep in mind isn’t really a student, he skipped town to be with his friends and took his baby brother with him, and this just made it even funnier.
