I’m watching Cheongdamdong Alice because I like Kim Seung Soo and Park Shi Hoo but I find the actress playing Se Kyung too boring to watch, she looks pathetic, sad, and scared like a chick who gets lost in the farm. The past episodes have been dragging, I hope it will speed up. Please don’t hate me, I don’t mean to offend anyone. I believe honest criticism will help improve the quality of the movie/drama industry. I think the drama has potential, the actress playing Seo Yoon Jo is quite good too but Moon G.Y. needs to improve her acting. She should brighten up. People in love should not look crestfallen. It’s hard to believe that SK is truly in love with Secretary Kim whom she has known only for a very short time after being madly in-love with her ex-BF for 6 years (?). The writer has to work hard perhaps create an extreme scenario to convince mature audiences why SK has a sudden change of heart.
My first time taking notice of who the writers are because the story strikes me with such pure enjoyment. Maybe because I'm American, I can't take the gut wrenching anxt of many of the so called romantic comedies out there. Most of the time, the balance is so off. The anxt, overwhelms the evolution of the love relationship and upstages the romance and comedy, so the victorious ending seems too little too late. Torturous power plays until the second to last episode with a cliche reconciliation and time warp epilogue is so unsatisfying. I hope this quirky couple doesn't have to get torn apart too badly. As lovely as they are, it would be great to see more love, more tenderness, more comedy of errors rather than viciousness. Forgive my boldness but I feel you must be creative enough to break the mold.
