I usually reserve these type of reviews for my epic, long episode, Chinese dramas that I tend to gravitate towards. So imagine my surprise when a super short web drama with a mostly newbie cast caught my attention to the point where I felt the urge to promote it. Just goes to show that good entertainment can come in all types of forms. So join me as I try and convince you to give Love For a Thousand More a chance.
Pyeon Mi Jo is an immortal woman who does not wish to fall in love anymore. Nearly a thousand years old, her experiences in love tells her all men are “bastards” one way or another. But what’s her current job? A Love Counselor. One day, she gets a new noisy neighbour, Yoo Joon Woo, a hip-hop crew leader.
#4 The OST
With the leading man being a musician it is only logical that they have a catchy song for the show to promote. It’s no surprise that our leading man is also a member of one of the biggest up and coming Kpop groups. Check out the main OST song below.
You (Kwang Seung Soon)
#3 Talented newbie Kang Seung Yoon
At first, I thought that Kang Seung Yoon was a bit stiff in his character delivery. But whether it was Seung Yoon’s sexy voice, mesmerizing lips, or he just got better the longer he portrayed the character, I finally found myself feeling depth within his performance. He has a long way to go before competing for a spot on my “must watch” actor list… but this is a good start.
#2 Unexpected emotional depth
Talking about depth, I am shocked at how well developed our leads are. With only 20 minutes an episode these dramas tend to be super shallow on plot and heavy in visual romance. I almost feel that the opposite is true with Love For A Thousand More. Instead of having the romance be the straightforward hijinks style this drama develops the characters in a way that the romance just seems to well up from their performance. It was a nice surprise and I feel more invested because of it.
#1 I have a girl crush on Hwang Seung Eon
It’s official. I would watch a drama specifically for Hwang Seung Eon regardless of the leading man. For those of you who know me, I tend to be a bit more focused on khottie leading men so when a female can make my must watch list it means that they have that bit of extra charisma. I look forward to seeing what projects Hwang Seung Eon takes on in the future. Hopefully, others will also see her potential and she can move up the ranks of leading lady in 2017.
