Welcome to Wedding Hell is a romance that tells the story of a couple (Lee Jin Wook and Lee Yeon Hee) in their thirties and the struggles they encounter while preparing to get married.
Lee Yeon Hee plays Kim Na Eun. She loves her fiance and looks forward to getting married to him. She thinks everything will be like a fairy tale, but she is in for a rude awakening when one issue after another comes up during wedding planning.
Lee Jin Wook is Seo Joon Hyung. He’s a good-natured man that does his best to make Na Eun happy. He too is thrown for a loop when wedding planning turns out to be more complicated than he imagined.
Welcome to Wedding Hell was a decent watch overall. The drama is mostly light, but there are some serious moments and a bit of angst. It’s also a quick watch with only 12 half-hour episodes. It’s a pretty simple and straight-forward drama with a couple dealing with the challenges of wedding planning. And there sure are a lot of challenges!
Na Eun and Joon Hyung are a nice couple. They love each and want to spend their lives together. I enjoyed them together, especially their sweet moments. They do have a few relationship issues that surface which they have to deal with though. There are some serious talks that have to be had, and sometimes they struggled to communicate with each other.
But I would say Na Eun and Joon Hyung’s biggest issue was their families, particularly their mothers. The couple already had their own issues, then the families just complicated them more and added other problems on top.
They created a fair amount of stress for Na Eun and Joon Hyung as they were very much caught in the middle of trying to do what they wanted but also trying to please their mothers. They faced some tense situations!
Na Eun and Joon Hyung also had friends involved. Neither person’s friends really gave the greatest advice to our couple, but they were always there to support them and cheer them on as well as add a bit of humor.
Welcome to Wedding Hell was a simple and basic drama. It brings to light quite a few realistic issues that couples and their families might face when planning a wedding. Communication, understanding, and compromise are what’s needed to deal with them.
It was interesting to see the variety of issues the couple faced and how they had to work through them. There was romance, humor, and some angst. Nothing revolutionary, but nice enough if you want something easy.
My Rating: 6/10
