I watched two dramas in September, and luckily, they were both good and enjoyable. It was the fantasy romantic comedy My Roommate is a Gumiho and the classic-style romantic comedy So I Married the Anti-Fan that I got in for the month:
My Roommate is a Gumiho
The fantasy romantic comedy My Roommate is a Gumiho was a very solid and enjoyable drama. I liked that the fantasy element with the gumiho mythology that was nicely woven throughout the story. The drama is fairly light with plenty of humor.
Things get going right away with Jang Ki Yong and Hyeri with lots of nice interactions between them early on. They had a solid love story with the progression from misunderstandings, to interest, to love. And then they have several big obstacles they have to overcome in order to be together.
I didn’t really find My Roommate is a Gumiho gripping, but I enjoyed every episode. The drama had such a classic feel to it that was very pleasant and easy to watch. It’s perfect for those like me that like the fantasy romantic comedy genre and want a solid story with a nice romance. (My Roommate is a Gumiho Review)
So I Married the Anti-Fan
We waited a long time for So I Married the Anti-Fan, and overall, I enjoyed the drama. It feels very much like a classic style romantic comedy in just about every way. We’ve got the rich male lead who is a complete jerk to our hardworking and nice female lead. Add in some fun cohabitation hijinks with a hefty serving of tropes and cliches, and there you have it.
The drama does have a solid story that moves nicely along with some romance and a bit more angst in the latter third. Nothing riveting, but mostly enjoyable. I personally enjoy this style of drama, so it all worked pretty well for me. (So I Married the Anti-Fan Review)
So how was September for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
