I’m not usually a fan of action/suspense/thriller dramas. Not because I dislike the genre, but because very few can actually pull it off. And The Slingshot is undeniably one of those few. There’s so many good things about this drama I’m having a hard time getting started! The cinematography is beautiful and intricately witty. The soundtrack serves its purpose splendidly in helping set the appropriate vide. The story unfolds bit by bit without losing focus. Not one second is wasted, each adds something to its overall beauty and each scene holds a significance to the theme and flow. One of the biggest things that got to me is the characters, how most of the actors left their fingerprints on the roles they portrayed. They are believable. There were times while watching I forgot that it’s acting. Even in their most unrealistic traits, they feel real. I applaud Kim Kang Woo for giving me a clear glimpse of Dowoo’s psyche. I can’t think of any actor who could’ve done it better. Park Ki Woong portrayal of Kyung Tae is also noteworthy. He sort of reminds me of Death Note’s L - unconventionally adorable. As for, Park Yong Ha, I found that most of the scenes I truly felt his presence were during his tearjerker parts. Not because I love to see him suffer but mostly because he doesn’t overact and yet it gives off a huge impact. (It’s such a pity this drama would be the last I’d see from him. May he rest in peace.)
Also, Kudos to the writer for wrapping it all up so beautifully. The character developments could not be more perfectly planned and executed. It’s balanced through and through, from its pacing to suspense to laughs to tears. It’s not worth missing out on! Definitely a must-see!.
