Lucky Romance… a huge flaw lies within the story itself. This is something they really need to address. I let it go at first, but I cannot let it go any longer. Here’s the flaw: Are the superstitions real or are they coincidence? If they are real within the realm of the drama, then all of Bo Nui’s actions can be justified within the context of the drama (which is ridiculous). If they are not real, and are just coincidences, can they stop with the red pens and the comatose finger twitching? How is Bo Nui ever going to learn that life cannot be controlled using superstitions if things keep happening because of superstitious things. The message of the story is not clear. Their dabbling too much with two different scenarios. I can accept that some things won’t make perfect sense, but can their at least be some logic to it please?
Alright… let’s dive into this mess and see what was good and what had me pulling out my hair.
Oh wow… things are certainly getting interesting now. It was quite the episode as Soo Ho (Ryoo Joon Yeol) reacts to the indecent proposal from Bo Nui (Hwang Jung Eum). Soo Ho also starts to put the pieces together as to why Bo Nui wants to sleep with him in the first place.
2 weeks have flown by already of Lucky Romance and the drama is still enjoyable. The fourth episode did not disappoint. The laughs continued to flow. I continue to make faces at the TV as Soo Ho is as robotic, awkward, and weird as ever. His mixture of lack of emotion, and struggling to realize he actually has emotions is hilarious.
Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! I mean, Raccoons and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! This was another animal heavy episode. I have to say, I’m loving the mix of playfulness, ridiculousness and emotional feels thrown in. This is quite the guilty pleasure drama.
Title: One More Happy Ending
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Quick Synopsis: Han Mi Mo, Go Dong Mi, Baek Da Jung and Hong Ae Ran are four close friends that are also four of the former members of the idol group Angels. Han Mi Mo is a divorcée who longs for everlasting love. She also runs a match-making service for other divorcé(e)s. Song Soo Hyuk (Jung Kyoung Ho) is a single father and Mi Mo’s neighbour. After a drunken night, things begin to get interesting and a little complicated…
Why do we watch romantic comedies? Think about it for a moment. This may vary slightly from person to person, but I know why I watch them. Yes, sometimes I really need something light-hearted where I can have a good laugh… but in dramaland “rom coms” can still take dramatic turns. So what is the real reason? The Happy Ending, of course. Even if a rom com has illness, amnesia, broken hearts, separations, misunderstandings, deception, birth secrets and so forth… it’s pretty safe to assume, if it was labelled a rom com, it will end on a happy note.
Here’s another rom com, one that’s sure to end on a high note simply because of the title right? So let’s take a closer look at this Happy Ending drama and discover (or rediscover) all the marvellous feels.
Wow… I haven’t posted in quite some time. I’m still around and well although life has been a little hectic. I’m quite exited because Descendants of the Sun starts tonight. Other than that, I’ve been Watching Madame Antoine and One More Happy Ending. I also started and almost finished Mask, but I’ve been stuck on the last couple episodes. I did start Gaekju, but I fell so far behind that I’ve set it aside for now. I’m disappointed in myself, because I really wanted to watch it for Jang Hyuk, but forty plus episodes seems so daunting.
Let’s hope that Descendants of the Sun is enjoyable.
Bye for now 🙂
