My Thoughts 

*mild spoilers*


kdrama-romance-is-a-bonus-bookI thought it would solely about the romance(and how it blooms), but it was so much more than that.  This drama (in my opinion) is about growing as a person, finding yourself even when people say you are too old for that. For me, the publishing house was the real star of this drama and the staff of it was the perfect “backdrop” for our heroes to grow. I loved how books were the center of some plots and the big “plot twist”.

The chemistry between our main couple

tumblr_pn5t19Ee7D1vhkfqso1_500I felt like Lee Jong Suk who played Cha Eun kang-dan-i-quoteHo was much more confident and relaxed, then Lee Na-young who played Kang Dan-i, when they acted the love scenes. But despise that the chemistry was good, I “believed” in this couple and that’s the whole point, isn’t it?

Our second love interest 

tumblr_pq6wvmy0NG1tfw70go1_500Wi Ha-Joon who played Ji Seo Joon is our second love interest and weirdly the “only” love interest that is going somewhere for like the first 5/6 episodes, it was unexpected, to say the least. I liked him sometimes more than our main love interest.

How it ends

1 The ending wasn’t rushed and I appreciate it, but was it satisfying? Yes and No. All the plot wholes we did see resolved in the last episode but I don’t know, didn’t feel satisfied with the ending. Felt like something was missing.
