One very to-the-point sentence:
I loved it. This is how dramas are supposed to be. This is what I’ve been fruitlessly searching Dramaland for for the past few weeks. This is how drama-watching is supposed to be. The hour just zips by and your mouse involuntarily clicks on the next episode, and you’re dumbfounded that it’s not subbed yet. WTGB?
Dramas should not be watched for the sake of watching, they should be watched purely for the reason that you can’t stop. And watching this fun-filled first episode, you definitely won’t be able to stop. I want to fast forward time so that I have a whole bunch of episodes to marathon watch. *pouts*
Despite the lack of teasers in the teaser, I’m actually glad we had no clue about the story. A very smart move on the drama promoters’ part, since they pretty much assumed we’d tune in regardless(They were right). It made for a surprising first episode.
I’m just happy we have a chaebol. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Cha Chi-soo (Jung Il-woo) as resident chaebol. *Applause* Kind of your regular good-for-nothing, good-at nothing spoiled chaebol player. Plus he’s weird. I like that.
The girl, Yang Eun Bi is SO ADORABLE. Not only is she pretty, but she’s got an imagination just begging to be set free and wreck havoc. I can feel it. I love her bickering with her roomie, and the part when she vehemently denied ever wanting to wear her clothes only to show her dressed in said stolen clothes in the next scene delighted me. She’s kind of a repressed study-a-holic at the moment, so I can’t wait for her to get tangled up in Chi-soo and learn to let her hair down
The plot itself, once you think about it, isn’t very original. Nerdy girl, whom no one loves or thinks is pretty (DO THEY NOT HAVE EYES? c’mon, Drama) and a disdainful chaebol run in to each other. Something or another will force them together and they’ll both eventually end up hearing bells ring. All that’s lacking is the co-habitation cliché. But it’s the playful setup and lines delivered with perfect comic timing plus the very gorgeous cast that have us all squeeing, here at episode 2.
So far, there is no sign of the ramyun shop that this drama is the namesake of, but I’m sure we’ll get there in due time. I just hope the writers keep up the quirky characters and engaging interactions. Fingers crossed, everyone.One last thing, WHY ISN’T THE SECOND EPISODE SUBBED YET? I normally am impatient, and exaggerate the time I have to wait, but this is ridiculous. Subbers, if you’re out there, I thank yee for all your hard work, but seriously, are you guys all dead or something? PLEASE DON’T BE DEAD! waaahhhhhhhh…:'(
