Hi! What was it that you liked about ho gu's love? I haven't seen much people making it their fave romcom, so I was just curious about what make it special for you. Also, do you make kdrama reviews, like in a separate blog or a website? Thanks!
i’m honestly so bad at explaining why i like things… but it was just such a warm drama with such wonderful leads
Do Hee was one of the first female leads i’d seen where she didn’t take crap from anyone, but i didn’t feel like the writers were creating someone who needed to be tamed? (which admittedly is the case for so many of her type of female leads)
She challenged everything, and she had ownership. But she wasn’t perfect, and she was still lonely and vulnerable, and kind, and funny, and loving, and fierce, and cold, and beautiful. And I love characters like her, because they just feel so much more real.
And then there is Ho Goo, who yeah, has feelings for Do Hee, but never pressures her on them, but instead just stays by her side, helping her with her baby and looking after her in away he can - without any expectations.
He’s wonderful and kind - sweet and earnest to a fault so to speak. And thats not to say he’s perfect either, and his development is in his journey from a naive puppy to a reliable partner to lean on.
Even the drama’s ‘jerk’ character, Kang Chul was honestly just a dork who just had no idea how to interact with people but was still trying his hardest to be a good friend and person.
i also liked how they dealt with the rape aspect of it, because it wasn’t done in a typical kdrama manner where it was all makjang and then happy ending - it was presented in a way that is so real, for so many victims - people blamed her, implied that she brought it upon herself, told her to forgive the guy, that he just made a mistake, when she charged him for rape people called her a gold digger etc. and it was honestly very well done imo, and the entire situation felt brought out some really raw emotions for me
this ended up being really long lols, sorry…
i dont have a separate blog or anything because i dont really write reviews (everything i say is an incoherent mess, and a whole load of word vomit lols - i tend to talk about dramas only if people ask, or as they’re airing lol)
