I had a pretty good month and got in three dramas for March. There was the historical The Crowned Clown, the older romantic comedy My Love Patzzi, and the friends to lovers workplace drama Romance is a Bonus Book:
The Crowned Clown
A historical with Yeo Jin Goo in dual roles as a villainous king and a kind clown is pretty much what I would want from a drama. It’s the best of both worlds! And he was truly phenomenal as always.
There was plenty of intrigue to keep things exciting all the way through. The romance between Yeo Jin Goo and Le Se Young was also very sweet. I really thought they had a lovely and comfortable chemistry.
The Crowned Clown really tied everything together quite nicely with its talented actors, script, and direction to create a wonderful story that was filled with intrigue, romance, and heart. All in all, that makes for a pretty great historical! (The Crowned Clown Review)
My Love Patzzi
I got in the classic 2002 drama My Love Patzzi, and it turned to out to be pretty cute! It is a very simple drama as it just focuses on the relationships between our main four characters with a basic set up.
All of the actors were fun to watch, and it was really neat to see some familiar faces in the earlier days of their acting careers. Jang Na Ra was the highlight of the drama. She was such a delight, and I loved her spitfire attitude and how different she was from most of the roles I’ve seen her in.
So while the story of My Love Patzzi has been done many times before, it really nails the overall execution to give us a classic romantic comedy with romance, humor, and some relationship angst. It was cute and charming and just an enjoyable trip back in time. (My Love Patzzi Review)
Romance is a Bonus Book
Romance is a Bonus Book was one of those more interesting experiences for me. I initially had trouble clicking with it, but I eventually did. Though even then I found the drama incredibly slow throughout. Much of this was due to my personal taste rather than the drama itself though. Let’s face it, I like angst and thrills, hehe
It’s a simple and low key sort of show that has relatable and realistic characters, a positive story, and a mature friends to lovers relationship between the main couple. The whole drama had a very positive vibe to it that just felt sort of cozy and warm combined with a well-written script and excellent directing.
Romance is a Bonus Book’s initial difficulty hooking me, slower pacing, and lack of angst gave me some issues, but then it’s interesting characters, fun relationship dynamics, and overall positive feel helped to balance things out. So overall, it was a decent enough watch. (Romance is a Bonus Book Review)
So how was March for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
