Lucky Romance: Episode 2

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... More »

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 »

by | May 23, 2016 | 55 Comments
Aw, the more I see of Lucky Romance, the more I really, really hope it pulls off the cute, vibrant spirit it’s touting from its promotional materials. It’s difficult to know for sure because the teasers so far have been pretty brief and I can’t really get a feel for what the show itself will... More »

MBC’s rom-com drama Lucky Romance is all set to premiere next week, and while I knew this was coming, it feels a little sudden to me, in a good way. We’ve had a steady trickle of promos (teasers, stills) but not really a big promo push, and I find it refreshing to head into a... More »

by | May 17, 2016 | 55 Comments
I have to say, it’s pretty refreshing to meet a drama heroine who blurts, “Just sleep with me once!” Of course, she has her reasons for being so forward — Lucky Romance is the new MBC rom-com about a woman so obsessed with luck, fortune, and fate that she takes it very seriously when a... More »

Ryu Joon-yeol and Hwang Jung-eum get handsy for Lucky Romance
by | April 19, 2016 | 167 Comments
I feel like Entertainer and Lucky Romance are already competing against each other with dueling couple photo shoots, even though the shows won’t be overlapping until late May, and not even for very long at that. But it’s inevitable when you’ve got Ji Sung going up against Hwang Jung-eum, and Hyeri going up against Ryu... More »

Sneaking good luck charms in Lucky Romance’s first teaser
by | April 15, 2016 | 62 Comments
The first teaser for MBC’s new romantic comedy Lucky Romance is out, and it kinda makes me think that Hwang Jung-eum is playing the same character she usually plays in rom-coms, and Ryu Joon-yeol is playing his Answer Me 1988 character again. I’m sure that won’t actually be the case in the drama, but they... More »

javabeans: Look, photo! girlfriday: Ooh, Lucky Romance already?

It’s not new news by now that actress Hwang Jung-eum was recently married, and while she describes her wedded bliss as being ordained by destiny, she also described herself as “itching” to get back into the acting game, and has already chosen her next project, MBC’s new rom-com Lucky Romance. Pictured here for Elle Korea,... More »
