Love Story in Harvard Quick Review
I love the script of this drama. I love how they select the scenes of the stories. It stand outs in the typical korean romantic drama because of the sharpness and reality it portrays. School set dramas typically sells, but I grew fond of it because I was in college when it was airing then so I can pretty much relate.
Kim Rae won is a favorite of mine when it comes to character portrayal. He always own the character he played and make it memorable and distinct to the rest of roles he took. Whatever you give him, he will surely deliver. I’m a sucker on finding-a-lost-love-and-realizing-the-love-is-still-there-drama so regardless of minimal inconsistencies and out of the context scenes, the fluidity and realistic appeal of the romantic elements were enough for me to put this on my favorite list.
It’s a modern love story with no pretense, and just pure bliss and understanding of how love may not work at some point of your life, because it could be waiting to be fulfilled at another time.
