Aaaaaah, Rain oppa. I have never seen his other dramas but Full House. I hated him so much for torturing Han Ji Eun but at the same time the feels I got from watching his naughty yet cold ‘tude really, really worked on me. So remembering my experience of watching Full House, I was hoping to get that same cutesy effect from My Lovable Girl. Well *knocks her head with her hand*, what was I thinking? These are two different dramas. Two different genres. Full House was a romantic comedy, and My Lovable Girl is just romance drama. But a girl can dream, right? *shrugs*
In the beginning, My Lovable Girl was not on my watch radar. One of my kakao gf saw the first episode and wasn’t impressed. I blindly took her advice and decided not to watch. And then Michele started texting to me on it. And I suddenly realized, Infinite L is in it! L!!!! MyungSoo!!!!! My other pretty boy is in it! Oh mo, I told myself I’ll regret for the rest of my kdrama life if I don’t start watching it. Plus, the way Michele was describing it, I found it very interesting and intriguing! And I’m glad I listened to her. So, so glad. I marathoned the first 6 episodes in a day! Yes, I was highly addicted with the drama by the end of episode 6 and immediately had withdrawal because the waiting for the next episode began thereafter.
The story line is pretty simple and extremely predictable. You and I can read it very well. So why bother watching it? We watch it because of the presentation with different actors, of course! Same plot line presented in different circumstances. How can I possibly give it a pass? Besides, it’s Rain and L and it involves music. Somewhat but I love music. My Lovable Girl is a life story of Hyun Wook, a composer and producer of an entertainment company. He came back from his looooong hiatus, after losing his songwriter girlfriend to an accident that potentially partially his fault. He later met Se Na. At the time, Se Na was just a hotel employee assigned to care for Hyun Wook’s adorable golden retriever. He then hired her as his pet sitter. He found out one day that Se Na wanted to be a songwriter and eventually discovered that she is his late girlfriend’s sister. He took her under his entertainment business wing. Unfortunately, her presence was very unwelcoming by his team and it was especially taken it hard by Jae Yeong, the company’s own songwriter and producer. He created a havoc and tore the company’s best kpop group apart and leaving Shi Woo, one of Infinite Power member, behind.
Shi Woo was the prettiest of the Infinite Power member but lacking vocal talent. His team pushed him away and blaming his popularity is nothing but his own appearance. He was very arrogant at the very beginning and used his celebrity title to win all, but in the end he came to realize that he got nothing to brag about. SeNa really pushed his boundaries in a way and made him understand his own ability and was humble by it. In the beginning, SeNa composed a non-typical kpop song for his solo debut but he rejected it thinking a fast, upbeat tempo would get the crowd to love him back. He blew it and ended up injured while performing on the stage and losing respect from his fans more and more. SeNa helped him made a come back and the song was extremely humble and down-to-earth, written to acknowledge his mom.
In the process of all this, Shi Woo slowly falling for SeNa while she’s falling for the handsome dog man aka Hyun Wook. By the end of episode 12, SeNa found out Hyun Wook’s real identity and by the end of episode 13, Shi Woo took heartbroken SeNa and made his. Of course he didn’t say it but action speaks louder than word. This is where Hyun Wook made the biggest mistake of his life by not being honest to SeNa. The girl is hurt. Shi Woo is already making her his. So what do we expect in the next 3 episodes? I, for once, really really hope that the second lead won the first lead’s heart! I want Shi Woo to win the final prize! Beside, it is just wrong to date your sister’s boyfriend! Don’t you agree? Yeah, that’s my prediction but who knows… KDrama is pretty much awesome at breaking their watchers’ hearts. SeNa could ends up forgiving Hyun Wook and go back to him (or not!). *shudders* I’m praying hard that for once, ONCE, that the second lead win! Who is on Team ShiWoo, please raise your hands! Besides, the chemistry between Rain and Krystal is pretty awful as a couple. Krystal and Myung Soo are way better as a couple and are more realistic considering their age and all. Amuden, this 16 episodes drama is nice and lovely even though it sometimes leaves you frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, the frustrating is okay and I get it why Hyun Wook didn’t want to be frank with SeNa. It is what it is too in real life. If you are into a mush mush drama, My Lovable Girl is for you. I like it since it is a light drama, it cools me off from my angsty dailies.
