Filipina Comedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas’ post became a trend after she criticized the korean drama The King: Eternal Monarch.
The King: Eternal Monarch is a story about two parallel universes in the 21st century. A fictional kingdom ruled by emperor Lee Gon and a modern-day Korea where police lieutenant Jung Tae-eul lives. With the help of a mysterious flute, Lee Gon travels to modern-day Korea and finally meets Jung.
Comedian Ai-Ai delas Alas posted on her Instagram calling it “waley.”
“THE KING .. sa netflix kung hindi lang si leemin ho ang bida nito d ako mag tyatyagang bigyan to ng chance pero sorry hindi kagandahan itong palabas na to para sa aking panlasa..” Ai-Ai wrote.
She stated that she was disappointed since she doesn’t get the story. “masyado ako dis appointed … hindi mo maintindihan ang flow ng korean novela na to .. science fiction, ? Action? Love story? Ano ba talaga”
“panalo lang to para sa kanila sa dami ng intrusion .. fastfood chain, coffee, energy drink, lipstick , makeup lahat na ata ng klase pero sana mas inisip nila yung ganda ng story bago yung kita..” she added.
“pero nabasa ko sa google magaling ang scriptwriter nito Kim Eun-sook, the scriptwriter behind several major hit Korean TV dramas, including tvN’s “Guardian” and “Mr. Sunshine” (2018) and KBS2’s “Descendants of the Sun” (2016), as well as “The Heirs” (2013) starring Lee, is in charge of the script for “The King.”( sya ang sumulat ang tanong ANYARE???)” she continued.
Ai-Ai also mentioned another korean drama as she compares the two.
“talagang hindi ako maka relate ., hindi ako makakapit sa story .. na compare ko sya tuloy sa ITAEWON CLASS simple pero aabangan mo eto 5 chances na nabigay ko para ayoko na talaga ..”
“mag tataka ako bakit sya number 2 sa trending .. hayz ang lungkot???? sorry idol kita magaling ka pa din actor pero yung flow ng story waley talaga .. @actorleeminho”
Many netizens reacted to her criticism saying that her projects aren’t even at par with The King: Eternal Monarch. Others said that she should’ve just kept it to herself if she was that disappointed. What triggers them the most is that Ai-Ai even had the audacity to tag Lee Min-Ho in her post.
Other netizens respected her criticism however they said she shouldn’t have compared it to another drama knowing that they are in different genres.
Some netizens also agrees with what Ai-Ai had said.
