I keep on planning to write about Korean dramas since I really like watching Korean shows..
However, I really can’t find the time to do so..
Funny thing is, when it is about Ryu Jun Yeol, I am able to make time for him..
Okay, when I heard that Ryu Jun Yeol will be top billing Lucky Romance along with Hwang Jung Eum, I felt an inner fulfillment.
Sounds weird right?
I was just so happy that he managed to get another lead role after Reply 1988.
Really felt bad that he was not the husband of Dukseon.
I fell in love with his character as Jung Hwan and fell deeper in love with his personality in Youth Over Flowers Africa.
I am happy for him that his hardwork paid off and I hoped that his new drama will be a success as well.
Plus his partner in the drama is no other than Hwang Jung Eum!
Such a big catch for his second drama..
Lucky Romance has a funny plot.
Shim Bo Nui (Hwang Jung Eum) believes in superstitions and fortune tellers and she follows them blindly. She was told to spend a night with person who is a tiger (zodiac sign) for her sister to wake up from her coma state.
Je Soo Ho, on the other hand, is her boss in a game developer company. Coincidentally, Je Soo Ho is a tiger. You know what happens next. Shim Bo Nui tries to sleep with Je Soo Ho and their love story begins..
At first the drama is just okay.
I love how natural Jun Yeol’s acting is and for Hwang Jung Eum, her character is somehow similar to her character in She Was Pretty but she is still hilarious as ever.
It is funny but somehow, the “Kilig” (Heart-fluttering) factor is there but not quite.
BUT! The “Kilig” factor I was looking for unexpectedly hit me big time!
My love for this drama suddenly surged starting episode 9-10.
Watch this short clip to know why:
How cute is that? 🙂
Anyway, if you are wondering what Kdrama to watch next, I suggest you give Lucky Romance a try.
It is entertaining and you will certainly love the characters.
