Day18: One you want to rant about


I know some beanies love Chocolate (sorry, beanies), but to me it has been the first drama disappointment of the year.

I expected a healing drama with an epic love story, was enthralled by trailers and posters, but… here’s my rant:

(warning: some spoilers):

– too many tragedies. Cha-young losing her sense of smell and taste was really too much.

– Kang and his family were too old-style (a little makjang-ish).

– I couldn’t buy Cha-young’s love for Kang. Their brief encounter when they were children wasn’t enough to me. I would prefer Cha-young had this precious, dear memory of Kang, and would fall in love with him as an adult. Plus, I didn’t like the way Kang treated her for most of the story. If I were her, I would run away from him once and for all.

– The thing that disappointed me the most was the fact that the show betrayed itself. I had really liked its message: live your life to the fullest, don’t lose an instant, because you’re alive now.
So, the way the FL runs away felt so anticlimatic. I don’t know if the writer needed to fill some episodes, if they wanted the usual separation befor the ending, or the scene with the hero searching for his love in a foreign, beautiful country, but I didn’t like it. At all.

OST, cinematography and Joon were beautiful, though.
