You’re Beautiful Review

You're Beautiful

ACTORS: JANG GEUN SUK, PARK SHIN HYE, LEE HONG KI, JUNG YONG HWA

Oh my goodness. This is probably one of the best dramas out there. If you don’t realize its intent, you can mistake it as shallow k-pop mainstream crap, but it’s not. The point of You’re Beautiful is to make fun of typical mainstream Korean culture by parodying it. The greatest thing, though, is that they’ll set up these situations so that you start thinking “wow. that looks exactly like Korean Drama Cliche #2.” But then, at the very last minute, they’ll throw in a complete curve ball and something totally unexpected will happen. It’s freaking fantastic!

PLOT: Lots of unexpected happenings and lots of ridiculously goofy fantasy sequences. It’s great after watching something deep like Que Sera Sera.

CLICHES: Well, I already ranted about the almost cliches, but it does have forced cohabitation, girl pretending to be a guy, and there are some really cute motifs/props that will tug on your heart for as long as you live: the hairpin, the pig-rabbit, stars, the moon, and limes. lol. I’ll never forget limes 🙂

ACTING: pretty freaking superb. It took a while to get used to Jang Geun Suk, but now he’s my avatar! Jeremy is freaking amazing-with-a-capital-z during some of his scenes *cough*busscene*cough* Overall, I think the acting was pretty amazing.

OST: some songs will follow you for a while, some you can only like if you’ve watched the drama (and some not even then–it took me a  while to be able to listen to “Promise” from start to finish)

Rating: 10 (I watched this over twice)
