I know for sure that most of us know Dramabeans and knows the resident blogger Javabeans. She already posted her review and surely more will follow. So, even I did promise to myself that I wont read any review of Playful Kiss anymore, I did break my own promise to myself and still read it. Crazy right? Ok I'm being a masochist!
So below is the excerpts of Javabeans review. Infairness to JB even though we dont see eye to eye when it comes to Playful Kiss, I do still respect her opinion and she sometimes points out a thing or two that made me appreciate and love Palyful Kiss more.
Excerpts from Dramabeans.com
"Playful Kiss had an awful first episode that undoubtedly kept some from tuning in for the rest. But in a way, I think there was a benefit to the slow start in that the rest of us who stuck around lowered our expectations accordingly, and therefore were able to glean the fun out of the drama. Or maybe that’s me grasping for a silver lining.
|Jung So Min made Oh Hani her own|
She embodied that complex well of emotions so wholly that I felt embarrassed for her when she faltered, proud when she stood up for herself, and, yes, exasperated when her feelings got the better of her and she went back to pining for Seung-jo. Every. Damn. Time. But it was an exasperation of the sort you feel for a good friend, or a sister, born of concern and affection. She was Ha-ni — all heart, not so much brain.
Seung-jo, on the other hand, hardly deserved her, which almost everybody realized eventually but Ha-ni herself. I’m not a fan of his type of character or the dynamics of this relationship — not one tiny bit — and routinely had to fight my aggravation at how he liked to mess with Ha-ni’s emotions for sport, or how Ha-ni was never able to escape his thrall. Once it was clear that he reciprocated, Playful Kiss got a lot more fun to watch, but I still wish there was more substance to this drama. Slice of life is fine and all, but there were stretches where these two hardly spoke, so we didn’t even have the benefit of cute bickering to tide us over.
|Well, if this isn't cute, then I don't know what cute means (just saying, hehehe)|
