It’s really awesome that every winner of the DramaFever awards managed to send a message through video to their fans, and a lot more came in person to pick up the awards! George Hu and Arden Cho did a great job hosting, although I feel that Arden was more on point with the hosting duties than he was. That’s not to say that their jokes and overly-forced flirting was not amusing. Poor Arden, George Hu was just not up to doing the Pinocchio toast kiss!
Despite the show being named after my most favorite book in the world, I could not bring myself to like Pride and Prejudice. Its complex storyline practically brought me to the breaking point of frustration. Between watching this and The King’s Face, I’m liking The King’s Face more for story development.
We’re winding down to the end, and in some ways, this episode reflected just that. I wasn’t surprised by the developments, although I do think it’s quite late in the game, and am curious how it will all tie up.
I wouldn’t be surprised (again) if this drama wasn’t neatly tied up. However, it does have quite the fast pace in one episode so you never know…
Episode 12 was epic in its own way. I expected some of the twists that happened to In Young, but for the events that happened to Hyun Joo and Seo Yeon had me giddy with excitement. And I will try my damnest to NOT make a typo on the boys’ names!!
Yay episode 11! Boo – I’ve never mixed up the two male leads’ names so often than before. Why do writers like to name their characters similarly? Hyun Joo vs. Yoon Joo in Romance Town. Now Sung Soo and Sung Hyun in I Need Romance. (Oh great – and both titles have ‘romance’ in it.)
Some more repetition, and very little moving forward. However, we are at that fated “Episode 10,” where things should be picking up, changing course, and our OTP should be established. There are only 6 more episodes left after all. The thing is, who comprises of our OTP!? I love that this drama throws it up in the air, like Coffee House. But I don’t like mind games too much either. While in Coffee House the drama was gearing up for a Kang Ji Hwan – Park Si Yeon pairing, I’m hoping that I Need Romance will give me a Jo Yeo Jung – Choi Jin Hyuk pairing. I simply prefer that a girl be loved like she deserves to be, so I can’t believe that rascal Sung Soo no matter how much he pleads for forgiveness.
Whoaaaa! I don’t know why I enjoy this series so much. It gets to me in the right ways, and yet it makes me feel so uncomfortable too. It’s like watching your best friends spill all your secrets on the table for the world to know. Even Woman Who Still Wants to Marry or Dal Ja’s Spring never got that far. (Although Dal Ja’s Spring gets the added point of showing a friendship between guys and girls.) I don’t think Soulmate was quite the same either. They talk and analyze so frankly about their love lives that they feel like old friends, and at the same time they make me feel so embarrassed to be listening in to their conversations. Very much like Sex and the City, although with Sex and the City, I couldn’t relate because they were all so much richer. (I just realized, both series have the main female lead doing a lot of voiceovers. Gah.)
