My Review of 18 vs 29, korean drama. it was pretty good considering the fact that it was a different type of story line than the usual sappy, retarded korean dramas (no offense, I think those dramas too XP). but anyways, it's a pretty good, light-hearted drama with a couple of twists in the story. what i liked best from the drama was the flashbacks.



now let's get to the sub-sections! hahaha.

Short Version Synopsis: This drama takes the audience back to the 1990s. The main character of the drama, Yoo Hye-chan, 29, reverts mentally to an 18-year-old girl after having a car accident. As she recovers her memory and the relationship with her husband, Kang Sang-yeong, she goes through many hilarious and heart-moving moments. (credits to HanCinema) it's a pretty short synopsis because i don't really want to ruin it for you guys.

*warning* there will be spoilers in the following sections of the review!

Storyline: 4/5

Considering the fact that I haven't seen a drama that was like this, it had a pretty original plot. it was interesting to see how the story would end up with a husband who loved his wife so much yet did not have time for her, and a wife who lost her memories and placed herself BACK to her 18-year-old mindset. I think the flashbacks were very cute and a great way for the audience to see what kind of history the two main characters had with each other. Plus, the guy who plays the young version of Kang Sang-Yeong is so hot and cute! hahaha. but anyways, the flashbacks are very cute and light-hearted... you could see the love blossoming throughout the scenes. it was also good to see that the flashbacks were not in order. usually when memories come back, they are not in order. so that was pretty "realistic". hahaha.



Characters

Park Seon-yeong as Yoo Hye-chan - 5/5

I really like her. I think she's an amazing actress and I totally fell in love with her when I watched the first episode. she's a very versatile actress. I really like her when she's protraying as an 18-year-old girl. very cute! and her chemistry with Ryoo Soo-yeong is very cute! But she is also able to create chemistry with her younger co-star, Lee Joong-moon. I just really like her in this drama. hahaha.




R
yoo Soo -Yeong as Kang Sang-Yeong/Kang Bong-man - 4/5

I love his guy's expressions EXCEPT when he cries. but he was a good actor... really knows how to express his feelings and he doesn't really overacts. he knows when to express the feelings his character is feeling. pretty realistic... EXCEPT for the crying.. hahaha.




P
ark Eun-hye as Sin Ji-yeong - 3/5

I didn't like her character and she was pretty stiff for this character. too whiny. too sappy. too clingy. too stupid. hahaha. sorry park eun-hye fans. i mean, im okay with her, but it's just this drama, i didn't like her. she wasn't even evil enough to be the rival. actually, there was no rivalry. only one-sided love.

Lee Joong-moon as Kim Nun - 3.5/5

cute to look at. great smile. but the acting was a little bit too stiff.

Choi Si-won as Young Kang Bong-man - 5/5

one word: HOT. but he's a pretty good actor. loved his expressions. haha.

Park Min-ji as Young Yoo Hye-chan - 4.5/5

very cute. very pretty.
