My Own Review:

Apologies if the review is not super accurate as I watched part of the drama and skimmed through part of the drama.

I watched this drama because I wanted to know how the Love Alarm Application actually works and how it is actually being used in the drama. I personally quite like how the Love Alarm Application is able to let me know whether I love someone and whether the someone loves me or not (as long as there are only 2 of us in the 10 metre radius). Just like how Kim Jojo and Hwang Sun Oh rings each other’s love alarm when only the 2 of them are together. But I feel that my alarm being ringed by someone I do not know can be quite creepy as well. I would prefer the love alarm only ringing if it is a mutual love (since the aim of this application should be telling each other that they love each other and form a couple).

I like how the drama not only use the application to form couples but also let people confirm that they do not love for each other. This is evident from Kim Jojo and her ex-boyfriend being able to confirm that they do not love each other with the application. But actually without the application, it is quite obvious that they do not even love each other as her ex-boyfriend does not even share sorrows with her and Kim Jojo does not even trust her ex-boyfriend enough to share her sorrows with him. However, this application gave a concrete evidence that they do not love each other and helped Kim Jojo to end this bad relationship.

Spoiler: For some time, Kim Jojo actually installed another application to prevent ringing Hwang Sun Oh’s love alarm despite her still liking him. I felt very upset by that and I am unable to accept it as she did that just because she felt small and scared the more she date him (if I am not wrong). She used the Love Alarm Application to show that she does not like him anymore. It was so heart-breaking at the moment. But the most heart-breaking thing is Hwang Sun Oh’s alarm will always and only ring for Kim Jojo even if Kim Jojo does not ring his alarm anymore. The contrast of them always ringing each other’s alarm to confirm their love makes it even more sad.

However, the reason why I gave 6/10 is because the parts that I want it fast is slow and the parts that I want is slow is fast.

My own review:

Ignored this drama at first due to its posters haha but later on I happened to read the plot of the drama and it includes fantasy (Yool can hear Na Ra’s thoughts) so I decided to try it. Luckily I tried it haha.

Liked how the drama is set in the school setting which makes Yool more equal with the other students since he is already a celebrity. Laughed a lot in this drama, mostly due to Yool. For example, when he tries all ways to figure out the rule in order for him to hear Na Ra’s thoughts such as by spraying water at her, patting everyone’s heads etc. and Na Ra thinks it is because he received a strange role and he is practising acting. It is funny how Yool has such a poor sense of direction and gets lost easily. It was fun watching him when he is lost or his face when he awkwardly waits for people to direct him. It is funny how Na Ra is such a poor driver and also how she has a crush on Joon Mo and recites his personal details when people mention him or to confirm his identity. Liked how Yool comes off as straightforward but without any sense of arrogance. Yool’s past adds more depth to the character, though I felt that there could have been a better resolution to that eg., the mother apologising. Enjoyed watching the interactions between Yool and Na Ra, and also among the group of students. Felt that the transition of relationship between Yool and Na Ra from friends to lovers was too abrupt and wasnt done properly.

The interaction between Soo Ji and her father is interesting. The story between Yool’s mother and Na Ra’s mother is funny. I am not sure how the drama fits its name since I dont see any hatred at all or how the plot relates to the story of Romeo and Juliet.

Had looked out for Lee Hong Ki’s drama since Bride of the Century and was happy that this drama was good enough. Want to see Lee Hong Ki act more cold guy/bad boy roles haha.
