Started off cute with great chemistry between the leads and a refreshing female lead that showed a bit of backbone. Before meandering into the usual IloveyoubutdoyouevenlovemeImsojealous which I eventually dropped and promptly moved on.
Jdramas have been off my radar for quite a few years now. Mostly since I haven’t chanced upon anything in particular that has caught my interest. But now that I finally have a reason to pick up Japanese again (I’m going to Japan!!!) I’ve been on a hunt for a good Jdrama where I can take a break but also pick up some vocab along the way.
Good Morning Call started really cute with great chemistry between the leads. The plot is similar to the Jdrama classic Itazura Na Kiss and it’s Korean remake, Playful Kiss which starred Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min. And since I loved Playful Kiss (this was when I was 14 though) it was no surprise that I got hooked.
But alas, this turned out to be a whirlwind romance that didn’t quite make it.
After 12 episodes, I had made the prompt decision to drop it and move on. Uni may be over but there’s still plenty of dramas out there to waste my unproductive life away.
WHAT GOT ME HOOKED
To be fair, the show started off really cute and engaging. There were parts where I felt were done really well and gave a fresh spin on an old, tropey romance plot. So I thought I’ll share some of the stuff that I liked, and what made this show worth blogging about.
