We’re moving right along through the new year! I only got in two dramas this month, but they were good. They included the older romantic comedy I Do, I Do and the makjang crime melo Woman of 9.9 Billion:
I Do, I Do
We get a nice little noona romance with the classic drama I Do, I Do. It is fairly straight forward in premise, but there is plenty to explore within that framework, and it does so very well. It has wonderful characters that are well-written and brought to life by a group of wonderful actors.
Kim Sun Ah’s character is on the prickly side, but she gives her a strength while showing a touch of vulnerability underneath. Lee Jang Woo’s character is very fun and lively while being all kinds of sweet and adorable.
There is a solid love square and plenty of relationship complications at play in this one, but I Do I Do stays solidly in rom-com territory and remains fun throughout with a nice helping of heart. (I Do, I Do Review)
Woman of 9.9 Billion
Woman of 9.9 Billion is a crazy, over-the-top makjang style crime melo which is a genre I tend to really like. There are some really interesting morally grey and bad characters going after a large sum of money.
The first half of the drama was the best since it was totally crazy with great pacing and plenty of new plot developments happening along with some fun twists and turns. Things get pretty intense!
The second half settles down a bit into more of a catch the bad guy situation and loses a bit of steam as a whole. Logic stretches and convenient plot devices abound too. Even then, it was still a good watch and took some interesting turns. So as a whole, Woman of 9.9 Billion was a decent watch. (Woman of 9.9 Billion Review)
So how was February for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
