I was one of the many who immediately jumped on the “Old Goodbye” bandwagon when news first broke out that it was due to air this November. Not only was the time travel, fantasy plot interesting, but this drama special is, quite possibly, the only chance we’d ever get to see a true “Fated to Love You” reunion. The staff of “Old Goodbye” involves not only Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara, but also Im Hyung Joon, who portrayed half of the Hamo-Hamo duo, Mr. Choi, and Kim Hee Won, the director for “Fated to Love You.”
As such a big fan of the drama, “Old Goodbye” was a gift. The anxiety of waiting for November 10 to roll around gave way to excitement when I was finally able to push that play button

But even outside of this context, the humor"s not terribly good this time around. The main problem is that it"s just not in any apparent service to a larger broader point. We"ve got the goatnapping, we"ve got the antique roadshow and we"ve got the gambling but none of these stories have anything to do with each other thematically. They"re all laid out as general sketch comedies, and they neither denote progress with the characters or statements about rural lifestyles as a whole.
On a base level too the jokes still don"t really work. The references are frankly a little lazy. One piece ends up being a giant riff on the ice bucket challenge, and maybe here it"s just my sense of humor that"s defective, because I really don"t see what the appeal behind the ice bucket challenge is supposed to be in the first place. Is pointless hypothermia funny? I guess maybe if you like that kind of basically sadistic humor this episode might be passable, but it"s just not the kind of good-natured ribbing I"ve come to expect and love in "Golden Tower"
