I actually made time in my hobbies/free time schedule for Korean dramas. Even if most of the Romanian TV channels air daily Korean dramas I never actually have the time to watch them.
My only option is to watch them online if English subtitles are available.
Last year I watched one Korean drama “Lie to Me” and even that series I was unable to finish. So, while I was looking up
again the entire series for “Lie to Me” I started watching the recently completed series “I Miss You“.
I only watched the first two episodes of the drama. Each episode is one hour long.
I must say the first episode was very confusing. In the first 20-30 minutes a lot of things were going on and it was hard to tell the relationship between the characters. But I managed to figure out what was going on.. eventually.
Basically the “plot” starts with two different situations:
- Soo-Yeon (played by Kim So-Hyun) is a 15 year old kid who is bullied at school because of her father is a murderer. Also, her home life with her mother is not actually very pleasant since they are barely scrapping off and the entire world seems to be against them.
- And there is Jung-Woo (played by Yeo Jin-Ku) who comes back to Korea from America wanting to be more closer to his family. But what he doesn’t know is that his family is in a feud over a huge sum of money.
And around this time Soo-Yeon meets Jung-Woo. They have a rough start since Jung-Woo ignores Soo-Yeon after he learns about her father but soon has a change of heart. Then they start hanging out and Jung Woo even protects her
as much as he can from the bullying at school.
Then, they grow up and lose touch with each other.
The second episode ends with the grown up version of Jung-Woo (played by Park Yoochun) sitting on the stairs of Soo-Yeon old home just contemplating his memories and wanting to reunite with his old love.
The first two episode were really cute to watch. For the time being I am enjoying this drama and hopefully the next episodes will be as interesting.
