I got in a few new dramas for the month of April, and they were all mostly enjoyable. It was the super cute rom-com Touch Your Heart, the legal slice of slice Miss Hammurabi, and the opposites rom-com Clean With Passion For Now:
Touch Your Heart
The legal romantic comedy Touch Your Heart gave us the highly anticipated reunion of our famed Goblin couple played by Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na. Thankfully, their amazing chemistry carried over, and they gave us such a sweet and fun romance. Lee Dong Wook’s stoic attitude contrasts perfectly with Yoo In Na’s bright and sunny disposition. They were both actually pretty adorable!
The legal side of the drama was more low key, but it was engaging enough and rounded things out nicely. Touch Your Heart is basic in its formula, but it did what a romantic comedy needs to do most by completely selling our main couple. Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na’s fantastic chemistry coupled with an adorable relationship journey made the drama quite enjoyable. Then add in that little bit of angst and a dash of thrills, and everything balanced out well. (Touch Your Heart Review)
Legal slice of life is definitely not a genre that I gravitate towards, but it turns out that I actually quite liked Miss Hammurabi. It’s a very emotionally engaging show that portrays the cases well and nicely connects them to the main characters. L, Go Ara, and Sung Dong Il were each great and gave me interesting and complex characters. There’s also a low-key but very meaningful friendship and romance portrayed between L and Go Ara.
Miss Hammurabi defied the odds and kept me interested all the way through. It gave me fantastic characters, a great script, and it tackled a lot of complicated topics. Although I will never be a lover of this genre, it just goes to show that you never know when a drama will come along and present itself in a slightly different way that will win you over and leave you more than satisfied.

Clean With Passion For Now
Clean With Passion For Now is an easy romantic comedy that is plot light. It’s mostly fun with plenty of cute, but it is slow at times with some pacing issues. Although the drama keeps a lighter vibe, I thought it blended the humorous and serious elements well. There was plenty of comedy and fun to add joy, but then there were some very emotional and heartrending moments.
It focuses on mental health issues such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in the form of germophobia. Although the illness is the source for a lot of humor and not always completely accurate, it does a fair job of bringing attention to the disorder by showing the mental and physical toll it brings. But this is a rom-com, and the show’s simple and humorous side is what the drama does best. It has a sweet couple that deliver plenty of adorable couple moments on their journey to love.
