C-Drama Review | “Go Go Squid 2: Dt. Appledog’s Time ” Attracting Viewers Attention With Romance And Comedy Side
“Go Go Squid 2: Dt. Appledog’s Time, A drama about two leaders from rival teams in a national robot competition who strive for success as their feelings and respect for each other grow by the day.” Wu Bai, a talented player, has long admired Ai Qing and regards her as a gaming industry icon. Wu Bai joins the national robot tournament and meets Ai Qing, who represents the opposing side. Wu Bai draws Ai Qing’s interest as both of them are motivated to win. It’s rather straightforward. It was nice to see Wu Bai following Ai Qing since S1 was all about Tong Nian chasing Han Shangyan. I skipped a few gaming subplots, but the drama was mostly consistent.
It was more drawn-out, slow-burn romance than comedy. However, in other respects, this version was more romantic, and the primary two couples complimented each other. My best moment was the finale since it brought S1 and 2 to a close, and I was thrilled to see Tong Nian and Han Shangyan return (yay!).
For me the re-watch value is little low compare to GO GO SQUID 1. Nothing extra or without any plot twists, turns, or surprises. When nothing special happens it becomes boring. That’s what happened for me. :p
Romance was really fluffy and good for me. A lot of sweet moments.
No Love Triangle. No annoying second leads. There was a second lead but was just for filler and supportive.
Many kisses (hot)
No break up …. Just little separation (only for 1 or 2 episodes).
My personal opinions about the story of this drama
It was so sugary that you may get diabetes as a result of it. Oversweet vanilla ice cream devoid of story twists, turns, or shocks. I realize it wasn’t a thriller, but when nothing spectacular happens, it becomes dull, and that’s exactly what occurred here. I truly can’t argue that this could happen in anybody’s life because it felt unrealistically flawless. So, indeed, it was a fairytale, which can only exist in dramas. So, if you appreciate unrealistic storylines with little or no challenges, no final episode breakups, no dumb misunderstandings, and happily ever after endings, this drama is for you. As if it were a great finish in and of itself. While watching this, you are not in any pain or discomfort. But, if you like to think sensibly, as if real life isn’t like that, then don’t spend your time here.
