Scene from "Stand-by" [MBC]
However, amid such slow-paced storyline, "Stand-by" managed to grab the audience's attention to the screen with typical elements of sitcoms. For "Stand-by" wisely uses the catchy aspects of each relationship and used it in describing each character. This is well shown when Jung-woo tries to make Jin-haeng, who is obsessed with being clean, angry by taking out underwears and making the room messy. Jung-woo tells Jin-haeng that he will be the first parent ever to win his/her own child, referring to Jin-haeng. Also, it is shown through the screen that the actors in the show are working in great harmony. For example, the conversation between Siwan and Kyeong-pyo clearly shows that the producers tried to make the stories more alive by emphasizing the difference between the two: "Do you listen to Girls' Generation? T-ara? What is this? It's a Korean class," "It's a mathematics class," "Are you trying to say that I'm stupid because I don't like to study?" "I didn't know that you didn't like to study" and etc. Even if the show is absent with unique events or weird happenings in the story, "Stand-by" is able to satisfy and live up to sitcom-hungry fans just with the in-depth expression of the characters and well-written lines. The show's such qualities make it worth to standby in front of the television every night.
