dangermousie: (Gloria - JJ by timescout)


So, I checked out the first ep of the new romcom with Choi Ji Woo and Yoon Sang Hyun, Can't Lose.

I am afraid it's not for me in the least. I am not predisposed to like lawyer dramas or divorce-related dramas in the first place, but it's more than that. The first ep set my teeth on edge - everything is so 'cutesy', so over-the-top, so shrill. Everyone is mugging like expressions are going out of style and the characters make me want to give them prozac (especially the female lead. I also find her unlikeable, but that is a separate issue). The poster pretty much encapsulates the vibe - if the poster appeals to you, you'll probably like the drama.

Granted, I watched it raw and may be missing some amazing dialogue that would put it all in a new light, but I don't think so. I bet it will have its fans - it seems well-made - but this is simply not a genre that appeals to me. It's not that it is a bad drama - it is just of the subtype - the wacky loud romcom - that I almost never go for.
