I Need Romance: Episode 16 (Final)

Well well well. The ending kind of snuck up on me in that I was sitting in front of my computer, enjoying the drama, when BAM – it ended.

This drama has been a fun ride as well – I can’t believe I recapped the entire series because it went by so fast, and it was fun! Anyways – here’s the last episode!

I Need Romance: Episode 15

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…

News Bits: 8/1/11 Edition

Oh dear. Kim Jeong Hoon (currently in I Need Romance) recently got booked for DUI and had his driver’s license revoked. Someone reported him for driving after drinking, and was pulled over. His alcohol level was 0.129%, which was enough for him to get his license revoked.

The actor was just getting his stride after coming back from the military, acting in I Need Romance and shooting the film “Punchline” with Yoo Dong Gun. He was also set to host two music shows in Japan – “Gaon Monthly Countdown” and “M-Studio.”

Well – at least he didn’t get into an accident.

I Need Romance: Episode 11

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.)

Argh.

I Need Romance: Episode 10

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 HwanPark 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.

I Need Romance: Episode 9

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.)

I Need Romance: Episode 8

Um – I’m not sure what to make of this episode. In some ways it feels like a step backwards for In Young, but a step forward for Seo Yeon and Hyun Joo. In this episode, I was actually more interested about her friends than I was in In Young. That girl just can’t manage to cut her losses quickly and cleanly – they continue to haunt her in this episode.

If anything, I do feel a lot more sympathy for Kang Hee.
