I got in two dramas for March, and they were both good watches. This month included the mega popular hit Crash Landing On You and the AI/romance My Holo Love:
Crash Landing On You
Crash Landing On You was a hit drama that was popular among fans and set all kinds of new records. I didn’t love it quite to the extent of most, but it was a still a good watch for me.
I liked the unique premise of a South Korean woman getting stranded in North Korea and being aided by a soldier. We get an emotional star-crossed romance between Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin that was filled with laughter and tears as they went on a difficult journey together.
Due to its very long episodes, the drama did have a lot of plot filler with the overall pacing suffering as a whole. While the story itself was quite good, it felt like the plot sort of moseyed along and lost some steam in parts.
But overall, Crash Landing On You did have a good mix of romance and humor along with a more serious plot. There are plenty of swoon-worthy moments and lots of feels to be had which results in plenty to enjoy with this one. (Crash Landing On You Review)
My Holo Love
My Holo Love was a nice and enjoyable drama. It’s the exact kind of story I’m into with the sci-fi/AI concept mixed in with romance. It’s a fairly straightforward drama with the main focus in the first half being on one woman’s relationships with a hologram and his creator.
Then the more serious plot running involving some bad guys coming after the AI technology begins to takeover in the second half. It was also a very touching story of a very lonely man and woman going on a journey of growth and realizing that they deserve to be loved.
Overall, My Holo Love had a lot of good elements. It had a great AI concept with interesting characters, personal journeys of growth, romance, and some baddies causing problems. It was a nice mix that kept things interesting all the way through. (My Holo Love Review)
So how was March for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
