This warm spring, various romantic works are coming our way.
It is true that romances don't have good ratings, but there's always a demand, especially from the younger generation of viewers.
First of all, the tvN rom-com "Her Private Life" is a romantic comedy that forwards with 'geeking out', an act of indulgence in one's favorite field.
Park Min-young, who was the intelligent assistant last year, becomes the perfectionist curator Seong Deok-mi, who is actually a major idol fangirl on the inside. The drama co-stars Kim Jae-wook in his first rom-com.
The ratings are very low at 2% because of the criticism that the subject of the drama isn't much different from traditional romantic comedies. However, reviews say the drama has been successful in terms of looking at a good-looking man and woman, and watching how fangirls 'geek-out' online and how it is portrayed in reality.
The tvN drama "Abyss", which began on the 6th, is a fantasy romance drama about a man and a woman tracking down their killer after they've been revived with a soul resuscitating ball.
It is ' fantasy ' after all. Some point out that the drama is too cheesy, and the ratings stopped at 3%, but Park Bo-young managed to draw attention by acting out 'the most common type of woman in the world' and Ahn Hyo-seop grabbed the viewers' attention as well. The drama was in major search engines until the next morning.
Ji Soo, Jung Chae-yeon, Jin Young, Choi Ri, Kang Tae-oh and other youthful stars displayed young harmony beyond expectations. Critics pointed out the drama lacked romance, but the drama was successful in connecting with young viewers by portraying unstable, yet dynamic young people today. The second season has already been filmed.
SBS comes out with "Absolute Boyfriend" on the 15th.
"Absolute Boyfriend" is a combination of science fiction, comedy and thriller. A dummy doll called Zero Nine (Yeo Jin-goo) with a warm heart, a special effect artist named Eom Da-da (Bang Minah) and a star named Ma Wang-joon (Hong Jong-hyun) are the three leading characters.
It is based on an original by Watase Yuu and it will be reviewed according to how it interprets Japanese colors in the Korean way.
On the other hand, "Angel's Last Mission: Love" is about ballet and angels. It is about a ballerina named Lee Yeon-seo (Shin Hye-sun) who doesn't believe in love, and a troublesome Cupid angel named Dan (Kim Myung-soo).
At the beginning of summer comes the jTBC Monday - Tuesday drama "The Wind Blows".
About the drama trends these days, a source says, "There won't be a dramatic change in the ratings, but there is a continuous demand in traditional romance dramas. Recent dramas come diversely in genre such as fantasy, thriller and sageuk to attract more of the younger generations".
