Premiere Watch: Temperature of Love
Yay, the fall romances are on their way! Finally, the dramas I’ve been waiting for all summer are about to premiere, starting with SBS’s Temperature of Love this week. I haven’t been finishing a lot of dramas lately, so I’m hoping that this new crop of shows will hook me from the start and have some staying power.
Temperature of Love
Time slot: Monday & Tuesday
Episode count: 40 (half-hour episodes, 20 hours in total)
Reasons to watch: Seo Hyun-jin, of course. We’ve come to expect a certain kind of drama heroine when Seo Hyun-jin is cast—relatable, flawed, and achingly real—and I expect no less from her this time around. The thoughtful contemporary romance seems tailor-made for her to be another everygirl we can all fall in love with, and I’m also looking forward to her reunion with rookie actor Yang Se-jong, who turned me into a fan after his riveting performance as a set of clones in Duel. Judging from the pre-show promo they’ve got chemistry in spades, and I plan to enjoy every moment of their on-again, off-again romance as they work their way towards being at the same relationship temperature at the same time.
I have mixed feelings about writer Ha Myung-hee, who’s adapting her own novel for this latest project; I did enjoy Doctors and High Society, but found that basically anything outside of the one or two main romances was entirely superfluous. I’ll admit that I already care more about Seo Hyun-jin’s character becoming a drama writer than Park Shin-hye being a doctor or UEE being a chaebol, so that’s something. But really, we’re here to see how this couple falls in and out of love, so let’s skip straight to the good stuff, shall we?
