The glitter of Entertainers has dulled a bit as the drama soldiers on, doing battle with backstories, overbearing mothers, tragic pasts, and personal foibles. The setup and premise of Entertainers is as solid as ever, but the resolutions of issues is a point of contention between me and this show.
Jae-hoon’s story was the central focus of episode 9. His mother has a dream for him and he follows it to please her, but it isn’t his. The overbearing mother is nothing new to drama, and neither is a son learning to break away from the forced cocoon.
