열여덟 스물아홉 /18 vs. 29

Genre: Drama/Romance
Language: Korean

While on her way to file for a divorce, Yoo Hye-Chan gets into a car accident. When she wakes up, she has amnesia, and believes she is 18! It becomes even more complicated when Shin Ji-Young professes her love to Bong-man, and Kim Noon(a high school student, no less!) falls in love with Hye-Chan.

How will her husband Kang Bong-man react? Can he win her love again, and keep it safe? Or will history repeat itself? And will Hye-Chan ever regain her memory?

Finished this one on....Thursday. It is pretty good. I enjoyed watching Bong-man, played by Ryu Soo Young. I also liked the sister, and brother characters, with their little side plot. Their personalities seemed...the most real? However....Hye-Chan and a few other characters....definitely got on my nerves , it did improve closer to the end though :). I just found it annoying that every time Hye-Chan felt uncomfortable she just up and left! Talk about frustrating!
When I was looking at other reviews on this they called it a "Comedy", I really can't remember any parts being very funny. It was more drama driven I'd say.

Hmm...I'd say...."sure, watch this". Not my number 1 recommendation... but it's survivable, and not quite as drawn out as say....1% of Anything. Admittedly it can be...exasperating at try out some of my other recommended picks before this one. :)
(As always if you've seen this, let me know what you thought of it!)

By the way, I realize I keep my reviews rather vague, as I don't want to spoil it for others. However would you rather I went more in depth? Or is it okay leaving it up to you to decide, for when you see it? ♥Leave your comments below♥

I think you are doing a great job in reviewing by not giving anything away. It's always best to let people discover the movie/show for themselves rather than having someone completely revieling it. It's always best to give your opinion and leave it at that.
