"Entourage" is here and it brings the convenience of an equus ex machina and a time jump. Yeong-bin has escaped to Busan without the group for some alone time while everyone back in Seoul is trying to handle the fallout and get the star and Ho-jin to make up. Eun-gap in particular becomes closer to the boys than ever and provides some valuable advice to Ho-jin.
As much as I have wished for some solid character development and some self awareness from Yeong-bin (Seo Kang-joon),
I believe the creators made the right choice with this happy,
convenience-filled conclusion. As I say in my previous piece, this feels
like the start of maturity for everyone in the group, including Eun-gap
Someone like Yeong-bin would need a big shock for an instant
realization and one final episode cannot handle such a big plot point.
is a very confused work when I consider it in its whole. It went for
style over substance, then it tried tackling industry workings and at
the very end decided to focus on its characters. For a pre-produced
work, such indecisiveness and muddled progress is surprising. I know
editing can change a lot, we have seen proof of that many times before
and with a couple of famous cases as well, but there is much more to the
problems of this series than that.
I would love a story where Yeong-bin becomes a professional and where Ho-jin (Park Jeong-min-I) becomes a super manager. One where Joon (Lee Gwang-soo) seeks help for his issues and where Turtle (Lee Dong-hwi) finds himself. Where Eun-gap and Ok-ja's (Choi Myeong-gil) relationship is developed. I would love a good series with this cast, but "Entourage" is just not that series.
"Entourage" is directed by Jang Yeong-woo, written by Kwon So-ra and Seo Jae-won and features Jo Jin-woong, Seo Kang-joon, Lee Gwang-soo, Park Jeong-min-I and Lee Dong-hwi.
