Lucky Romance: Episode 10

It’s like watching the Tin Man learn how to use his heart, as Su-ho struggles to deal with all of his brand new shiny emotions. But emotions are complicated, as he’s learning, and can’t be controlled the same way numbers and computers can. It’s going to take a lot of effort to get the results... More »

Okay, he’s gonna have to stoppit with those smiles, my heart can’t take it! There’s only one thing better than smitten and confused Su-ho, and that’s smitten and aware Su-ho. He’s jumping into the wooing waters feet-first, though he obviously has no clue what he’s doing, and the result is as endearing as it is... More »

If I hadn’t already fallen in love with Ryu Joon-yeol in Answer Me 1988, I surely would’ve fallen for him now. He makes this character so much better than what’s on the page, and he makes it so that every time he’s mortified, I’m mortified, and every time he swoons, I swoon. It’s so immediate... More »

Lucky Romance: Episode 7

Today is a bit of a subdued affair, emotionally speaking, but it does give us some nicely rewarding moments of growth and understanding between characters. I do wish some of that growth and understanding would come on the part of our heroine, whose sweet character and personality makes me want to root for her, although... More »

Lucky Romance: Episode 6

Turns out, the more obsessed our hero becomes with solving a riddle, the weirder he gets, and the funnier the drama becomes. Everything is still life and death as far as our heroine is concerned, but I like that she’s also become the one puzzle our genius can’t solve, and that means he has to... More »

He smiles! A smile is a face he knows how to make! Today we finally start to get to see more of what makes our stoic genius tick, and it’s not just all gears and computations. (Although he’ll never be without his comforting computations.) We also get a bit more of the light sensibility I’d... More »

Things do pick up now that the setup is complete and the romance can actually get going, albeit in the form of a cold hard business arrangement. I suppose stranger things have led to romance in dramaland, and if there’s one trope I always enjoy, it’s the contract relationship that forces people into coupley situations... More »

We wrap up the setup now and set the stage for the real conflict/scheme to get going, which means that I’m looking forward to tomorrow to kick us off on our heroine’s comic foibles. It also means that this episode was still getting the characters where we knew they were heading all along, which felt... More »

The conflict is established, the characters are put in place, and now it’s time to let them clash and see what happens. There’s some comedy, as we would expect, but actually it feels that the character development is hewing more natural than screwball for the most part. It’s not what I expected from such an...

Yay, it’s cute and funny! Huzzah. I was scared that MBC’s new romantic comedy Lucky Romance might not live up to expectations, but the series is off to a strong start, with endearing characters, a snappy pace, and a good balance of humor and heart from both our leads. It’s written and directed with a... More »
