After a relatively plodding opening weekend, My Liberation Notes really made a case for itself in its latest pair of episodes, showcasing some strong character writing, a fair amount of thematic depth and nuance, and patient storytelling with a clear understanding of where things are headed — even if it’s not necessarily in much of a rush to get there. The overall effect is of a show that is very easy to be consumed by; everything from the script to the visual juxtapositions and thematic motifs are communicating the same ideas in a compelling way. My Liberation Notes season 1, episodes 5 and 6 have some suddenly strong foundations to build on, and it’ll be very interesting to see where things are heading. From my latest recap:
The idea of personal development and self-improvement being sort of contagious, and the flipside of stifled, small-minded thinking being similarly catching, is an interesting one to me. My Liberation Notes does a good job of depicting this kind of thing in subtle touches, such as Mi-jeong trying to control her temper around Mr. Gu, or Chang-hee’s behavior after a fall-out with his father. This isn’t the kind of show that wants to make a point in big, explicit ways, but rather in its entire vibe and underlying sense of feeling.
