Full House is a kdrama classic released in 2004 starring Rain and Song Hye Kyo. It was my gateway drama and was perfect for introducing me to another culture for the first time. Full House is a romantic comedy that tells the story of Ji Eun who had her house secretly sold by her best friends while she was out of town. Her home was sold to a famous actor, Yeong Jae.
Through a series of events, Ji Eun becomes involved with Yeong Jae who decides to let her be his housekeeper in her old home. There is a lot of fun bickering, lack of communication, and one of my favorite love squares to date. Admittedly, the plot can be a little repetitive with lots of fighting and making up.
The pacing also has a slower feel to it then more recent dramas. As my first drama, I was never bored at all and was completely immersed in it. Looking back, I can certainly see its flaws, but I feel like there is enough comedy and charm to make it a great drama.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who can appreciate the classic dramas for what they are and how they shaped much of what we see today.
My Rating: 8/10
