My Amazing Boyfriend
I had such a fun time recaping this drama. If you want to read it there will be a link below. There is also going to be 2 podcasts that will be linked where my good friend, Natalia from Soju Nights, and I talk about what we thought of not only the drama series but also the finale.
The drama follows Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) a famously unlucky actress, who has just broken up with her latest boyfriend. After the failed marriage proposal, she gets into a severe car accident with a truck transporting Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan). Due to her blood lose Ling Qiao is revived, and due her death being on the horizon, he saves her by feeding her his blood. Throughout the drama series, Jing Zhi and Ling Qiao battle their feeling for eachother while trying to track down the person who drained Ling Qiao’s blood over a hundred years ago.
This show is campy, cute and hilarious. The special effects are ridiculously bad, and most of it is overacted. The writing is good for a campy rom-com, and the pacing is done right for a show that is this long. I will warn you about 2 small things. 1: if possible DO NOT watch the intro and end credit, all the major plot points are ruined during it. 2: The ending is not appropriate for the show, and it’s what i like to call a non-ending (which is a really really bad open ending). But all in all if you have 21 hours to kill on a 28 episode show, this is something worth investing the time.
