To make up for that godawful extra tropy last ten minutes of the last episode (episode 14) of Itaewon Class, the production has called in some big guns and cast Park Bo-gum in the final episode! A little Bogum magic to the rescue shall we say?
It definitely has peaked my interest. I mean, I was going to watch regardless, but let’s be real, the last two episodes of Itaewon Class have been kind of boring. It’s like once they made their millions, the writer forgot how to put together an intriguing plot. Hence about 5 tropes in the last minutes of the last episode.
I mean we had the “realize I actually love her” trope via a “memory montage” trope, the “I love her so I must run to see her” trope, the “evil man kidnaps woman in a hospital” trope, the “car chase scene to get woman” trope, the “
truck car of doom” trope, the “push someone out of the way and then stop and get hit by the car” trope, and finally the “think about your sorry revenge life as you lay dying” trope.
That all seriously happened in like the last 10 minutes of the episode, maybe the last five minutes. But it is all erased because Park Bo-gum is about to cameo in the finale, whoo hoo! I forgive you show!
Park Bo-gum has a good relationship with the director which is why he agreed to do the cameo, and has already finished shooting his scene. He is also gearing up for his starring role in his show The Moment (previously called Youth Record) which is about the world of models and will premiere on tvN this year.
