Ahhhhhhhhh! Spazz attack! Okay, okay. So I watched the 8 minute Bubblegum Kdrama teaser and my excitement for the drama continues to grow. I was originally going to make a coherent and analytical post dissecting the teaser, but let’s not kid ourselves. I’m in no state of mind to do this. I want to simply enjoy it, leisurely screen cap and make collages from it because it’s fun. Plus, I’m at a disadvantage because I don’t know what they are saying.
I will say, the intro is super cute but the drama definitely looks like a rom com/melo hybrid. I don’t think it will be as clear-cut as “simply a rom com”, but I’m hoping and believing that they can find the balance between the two. They do give it a playful feel, but my impression is they will be digging deep into the characters (which I’m totally cool with and welcome).

More Screen caps
As you can see from the screen caps, there’s really a mix of quirkiness, sadness and hopefully lots of sweetness.
Here’s the extended teaser if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet (or want to watch it again… and again):
What do you think of the extended teaser? How do you feel about the mix of rom com and melo vibes? Let me know what you think.
