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.
