There’s something extremely beguiling, and anyway grievously recognizable with regards to the lead couple in the outwardly satisfying Our Beloved Summer. It takes a seriously sensitive equilibrium to make a K-Drama like this a single tick; one which follows characters that aren’t consistently awesome, but who is, in equivalent parts, sweet and disappointing.
Our Beloved… doesn’t simply figure out how to do this, yet has likewise kept its watchers completely put resources into the existence of Choi Ung and Kook Yeon-Soo for the term of the show up to this point. It is around the 10th episode-mark that some K-dramatizations succumb to dull, flat composition – something that this series has evaded in its 14-episode run. Things will ideally stay similarly as vivacious in the last two episodes too.
Years after featuring together in a viral narrative from their school days, productive artist Choi Ung (Choi Woo-Shik) and PR chief Kook Yeon-Soo (Kim Da-mi) are compelled to meet before the camera indeed. This time around, their companion Ji-Ung (Kim Sung-Cheol) is the one helming the and he brings along a huge load of unsettled affections for Yeon-Soo. Likewise tossed into this blend is N.J (Roh Jeong-eui), a gigantically well-known Idol who has a developing liking for Choi-Ung’s specialty and his tranquil appeal.
In the legacy school scenes, reliable Yeon-soo’s underlying shock at Choi Ung being the last positioned understudy before long gives a method for easing back interest from the two sides. They’re at first nearly repulsed by how various they are, however this likewise unites them. “For what reason does she carry on with such a debilitating life? Morning people simply get drained before,” Ung comments.
As the show moves between the past and the present, the contacts are wonderful. We see a few equals, be it the library books Choi Ung gets, or how he holds up external her home.
It wouldn’t be a distortion to say Choi Ung has established his place among the most elegantly composed and adored characters in K-Dramas.
It’s a job that could only be described as epic for Woo-Shik who typifies every quality that essayist Lee Na-Eun imbues the person with. One can’t resist the urge to go gaga for this bashful, sweet kid nearby who is exceptionally evident that an unpleasant life isn’t so much for him. He’s somebody who needs to just laze around while gazing at the stars but then, is tremendously attached with regards to Yeon-soo, his family, companions, or any other person around him. With his sluggish, abrupt grins and warmth that transmits off the screen, Woo-Shik is the ideal fit for the job
