This drama was one rollercoaster ride. One episode brought me to kdrama romance fantasy land, while the next landed me in melodrama hell (well, not really that bad). It kept me wondering what would happen in the end. There were points when I almost dropped it (earlier on), but the overarching secret of the lead guy kept me hanging on.

I never saw Season 1, but all I knew was that there were 2 hot guys in this drama, and it was on tvN, which has suddenly become a mainstay station for me since it’s been delivering quick, fun, unique dramas (yay for short episodes!). This drama was was no exception. The first thing that stood out was the blunt adult talk about sex, romance, life, etc. After maybe the half way point, it became much more like a traditional rom com, with a touch of indie as I like to think of many tvN dramas. It actually felt like a long Korean movie, which isn’t necessarily a good thing. Korean movies can be confusing to me. They often have bittersweet endings that may not be expected or preferred, but are at least made acceptable.
Anyway,despite having such a basic romance story line at the surface, it was certainly deep and addicting. The characters were so real; they changed a lot, made mistakes, were unsure of themselves…kinda reminded me of myself haha. But I don’t think I’m as immature and clingy as some of them got. The immaturity was frustrating. I’ll never understand some of the feelings and thoughts these people had.
Overall it was worth the watch, but waned towards the end.

I like you so much right now. But do you think we’ll end up disliking each other too? That will most likely happen, right? -That could happen. There is nothing more cruel than time. -Honestly, I tend to change easily. I have no confidence in my feelings. I can’t trust myself. What are you going to do if I say I want to split up again? -I’ll hang on tightly so don’t worry about it. If you can’t trust yourself, then have some faith in me. I’ll help you stay the same, but if you do change…I’ll wait. -Yeol Mae and Ji Hoon
