And it’s time for a review of Romance is a Bonus Book! This show just ended relatively recently and I really wanted to get my thoughts on this drama put down on paper. Hopefully if you want a second opinion after watching it yourself or just want to figure out if you should actually start watching it, you’ll enjoy this read!
My first general thoughts on this drama as it finished airing were all mostly positive. I enjoyed watching the characters on screen and rooted for them through the fairly laid back drama. My favorite part is the relationship between the two main characters and watching that blossom from a solid foundation was very fulfilling.
I’ve kind of been in a drama slump, so I started watching a show called I Picked up a Star on the Road AKA I Picked up a Celebrity on the Street. Whatever you want to call it. It’s kind of hard to find online and I haven’t seen any English subtitles for it yet, so I thought I’d post my thoughts on a few episodes so people could see it more easily.
For anyone who’s interested, I’ve only found it on Oksusu if you live in South Korea (or can geolocate…) and a couple nondescript Chinese sites without subtitles. I recommend watching on Oksusu if you can figure it out. 😉
Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve got everything right, but I’m still learning Korean so I probably missed some stuff. Feel free to correct me if I say something wrong. Now let’s get into it! I’ll try to add a fair amount of pictures but I think as recaps go on (if people want more) then I’ll have to decrease picture count.
Wow, this review has been a long time in coming. I just can’t put my feelings for this show into words so I had to take a step back.
First off, this show is now firmly implanted in my memory. Sometimes I watch a show, and it’s pretty good and I really like it and I may want to rewatch it at some point, but it’s not the show that shapes my whole life as I watch it.
But Mr. Sunshine! Everytime I think about this drama, it gives me the feels. So much in this drama that made me laugh and cry. I would watch it every weekend without fail the first chance I had and I never skipped a single second.
Are you trying to decide if you should watch this show? I would recommend this to everyone, but I have to admit it probably isn’t for everyone. This will make you laugh and cry and ship, but if you just want a romantic comedy or a fun action drama, this probably isn’t for you.
While I was bored waiting for episodes of other dramas, I decided I might as well start this drama since it already had 12 episodes out and there was no way I’d go through half a day of drama quick enough that I’d have a more acute case of withdramals. Right?
But of course, as these things usually go, I did complete the available episodes within a timespan not much greater than the length itself, and so I was left again to wait on the remaining episodes! And horror of horrors it aired the same days as the other major show I was waiting on! Gah!
