Hello, it's Sara giving my opinion on the show Roommate. I would like to say first I loved the original cast so I'm not too excited with the new casting but I will talk about them too.
(Females) Park Bom was the whole reason I started watching Roommate to begin with, But after seeing the first two episodes I fell in love with all the females on set.
Lee Sora, I thought was gonna be mean, snobby, and rich attitude. I didn't like her because of her first introduction to the show, but as I watched I saw she was an amazing person and she treated everyone with full respect.
Ga Yeon on the other hand I questioned why she was there because she wasn't an idol or really famous. She ended up being a very funny and cute person who fit in well with the others perfectly.
Soo Hyun I was fine with because she didn't do much but I did think she only wanted to hang out with the guys. I thought about it and it's just some girls naturally hang out with males very easily and in the end she got very close with the girls and hung out with them a lot more then any one else.
Nana, I really didn't like her most because she gives off the dizzy mean vibe. I really hate those types of girls. But she ended up being one of the best cast members. She's cute and playful and super sweet so there's no reason not to love her.
As for Park Bom I already really liked her but I got to know her very well through this show. She doesn't care if her hair is messed up as soon as she wakes up and she didn't care about her nightly face stickers ether. Her being in 2NE1 changed nothing about how she was on the show. We even saw she was always worried about what to wear outside because she said she wasn't the best at styling and didn't want 2NE1 to look bad because of what she wore so she would always ask the others how it looked.
Starting off with Park Min Woo, I was completely shocked by his personalty because its so different from all his acting roles. At the beginning of the show he didn't show how he really was but as it went on he came to be who he is. I'm happy that he was himself in the end because he can be a jerk at times but that's just how he is. I like him now due to this show.
Next is DongWook, there isn't much to be said about him because he was hardly ever there due to him filming so much. But from what it showed he was very kind and funny and gave his all to the show when he could.
Chanyeol...Yeah he is the reason I can say EXO is ok. because I really hated EXO and all the members. Watching him and seeing the way he acted I really liked him way more then I should. But He was very funny and he always had a smile to give to everyone on the show.
Seho was just funny because hes a comedian, but his love for Nana never dies that's for sure. I say sometimes you would feel bad for him because of when he got upset it was sad to see someone like him get that way. He always kept the show entertaining.
Kang Jun was really quiet and didn't say much but he was very thankful for the house and the food he had there. He did have a great nickname and it was KANG DASH MAN! He was always there randomly with Chanyeol and them together was the best.
Lastly was the man who held them all together Shin Sung Woo A.K.A MAMA SHIN! He cooked every meal and always looked out for Chanyeol's health because Chanyeol was always busy with EXO so Mama Shin made sure Chanyeol stayed healthy. He also made sure no one fought one another and everything was fine.
In the end we see that all these famous people are just humans who struggle like everyone else and they need love just as much as you and I.
Lets talk about the real issue here though is that due to Park Bom leaving everyone else is now separating and leaving. It shows that if they are not a family as they are then they might as well all leave too. It really breaks my heart to see everyone leave because they are a family. Seeing the PDs replacing everyone is sad because this family is surely one of a kind. The new casting is very different from the old ones and there are still some of the remaining cast but it seems that won't last long.
New cast....so far
They haven't fully announced the full new cast yet but with who they have I am not pleased with at all. Why? Because the people they have gotten for it is mainly for acting and not showing who they really are.
It's not that I have anything against Sunny or SNSD but its pretty obvious that they got her for what she's known for. Which is being all smiles and always being happy, so for viewer ratings shes a good match. But she most likely wont ever be able to be sad or cry on the show. She's only there to make the mood for fun and games.
Okay, yes they got this old man who is still stuck in the '90s to join. Why? Because hes funny yes. Am I a fan? Not really, only because I don't find his humor that great. I have a feeling there only using him to make him the "no brainier" of the show.
They have to have a male idol so who else but Jackson. Im not a fan of him and I don't really know him. I will say I don't feel that he will last long. I think that the people who like him a lot might be upset with him in the show in the the end.
I really don't think they should have gotten her at all due to the fact that she's a new comedian and that's all she's gonna do on the show 24/7 and she isn't that funny but more annoying. I just plain out don't like her and I bet she will say something about her weight and say something about how she hates when some one makes fun of her for it.
I know nothing about him all I know is he acts and was in "The Three Musketeers" and "The Joseon Gunman". I did not watch ether one yet but I have a feeling he will be not a good fit with the rest of the cast.
I'll update the list once the rest of the new casting is out but I still like the original casting best and I will forever like it best. They were just so happy and when they fought it was like anyone does with a family. They did there best not to hide anything from each other and the had serious moments and funny moments. They showed us that their lives are not that much different from ours.
This is manly all opinions and some facts on whats going on in south Korea and what we think.
