Kwan Hwa Woon is Park Do Kyum. He is in a band and decides to break up with Song Yi out of the blue. He appears cold to her, but it is obvious there is more to the story as to the real reason he broke up with her.

Finally, we have Ahn Woo Yeon as Seo Ji Gang. He is the tour guide for the couples trip and ends up right in the middle of Song Yi and Do Kyum’s issues when he develops feelings for Song Yi.

I was looking for something quick and easy so I decided to go for Check Out the Event since it is only 4 episodes. The drama is pretty basic with a simple plot, but it is very easy to watch.

There’s a mix of humor and serious going on in this romance as we see Song Yi get dumped by Do Kyum and go through a lot of anguish. But then the pair have to pretend to be a couple again to go on a trip they won to Jeju Island. Awkwardness ensues. A pretty good chunk of the drama just involves Song Yi and Do Kyum going around in circles with her asking why he broke up with her and him not really saying.

So that poses the question of why exactly did Do Kyum dump Song Yi? A dash of mystery to spice things up! Honestly, it’s not the greatest reason, but I thought it was a pretty standard kdrama type reason. It’s definitely nothing grand though.

There are some other elements to the story too. We get a bit of a love triangle with tour guide Ji Gang falling for Song Yi. He’s a really nice guy who goes out of his way to help her. We also have two other couples who go on the trip, and each gets their own little story to beef up the plot a bit.

An added bonus to the series is that the Jeju island scenery is very pretty. There are lots of lovely scenic shots to enjoy of this beautiful place. So, the drama is always very nice to look at.

Check Out the Event was a simple drama. It’s not all that engaging, and I didn’t really get invested in any of the characters, but I thought it managed to do well enough with its 4 episodes and tell a decent little story in that short amount of time.

My Rating: 6/10

    Not that engaging?
    Should I rethink watching it then? 🤔
    Or else my precious four hours will go to waste.

      Eh, just kind of depends. This is more a filler type drama. There are definitely far better dramas to spend 4 hours on, but if you just want something easy and simple this can work well.

  4. I enjoyed watching Bang Min-Ah for the first time. She has a different facial look then other leading ladies. I enjoyed seeing Jeju island as the setting of this story.

    Why in the heck would a guy withhold information from his girlfriend to keep her from worrying but then watch her continually suffer due to the breakup? And did she over react when she left him on hearing about the hidden truth?

    SPOILERS: The ending should of been much better. We have the long separation and when they do get back together it’s at the at the very end of the last episode, so we don’t get to see their love and relationship return.

      I’m glad you enjoyed getting to see Min Ah in a drama. She’s really wonderful and has a fun charisma 🙂 Yeah, the whole issue surrounding him hiding his reason for the break up was crazy. Kdrama logic, lol. I too wish we could have gotten a bit more of them in the end.
