This is real romance! First mature Korean show I've seen. This isn't a love story, a life story is more appropriate. It's a very beautiful-powerful representation of relations between people with awesome combination of lightness and seriousness; not only love but also friendship, siblings' love etc. Overall mood of drama is light; often it's L-O-L kind of funny without being idiotic and very heartwarming and sometimes it gives feeling of emptiness. I'm a guy and I'm not ashamed to admit that I shed many tears of happiness while watching Alone in Love. I felt like I was one of the members of their friend circle. I was attached emotionally with each character. I felt emotionally saturated after going through this lovely show! Eun-ho (SYJ) and Dong-jin's (KWS) views in narration on their life and love are inspiring and can be lessons for most people. Their views can be useful for any person-any age, those who are in love, those who were in love and especially those who yet to be in love!
Almost everyone was A+ in acting including guest roles! Gong Hyung-Jin is brilliant and funny as an unconfident gynecologist and played an important role as best friend of main lead.
Son Ye-Jin: I don't need to talk about her. She's proved actress. She is flawless throughout whole show but her best performance was in the last two episodes.
Lee Ha-Na: I'm very very impressed by this actress! This was her first role in her career still she managed to perform it brilliantly. She was very natural, great expressions and dialogue delivery. Sometimes she was suppressed by the presence of Son Ye-Jin but still she outclassed SYJ in many scenes! She definitely deserved her New Star award.
Kam Woo Sung: Poor guy, every other actor in this drama got acknowledgment for their acting by getting either best actress; top excellence, New Star or supporting actor-actress awards but this poor man missed it! I think his acting was best in the whole cast! Clever dialogue delivery! BEST!
Music was mesmerizing. I couldn't find OST album yet so I don't know specific track names to point out but I loved the music!
-Very realistic -Romantic! -No angst and typical Asian show riddles -Excellent combination of all emotions -Perfect casting & acting! -Strong and likable characters -No idols -0% nonsense -No annoying characters -Stable pace
None, still I couldn't find anything negative except this was highly addictive. It felt like a 16 hour long movie!
Who should watch this?
As I said it's mature so it'll definitely suit mature audience but I think it's more advisable to recommend it to younger audience (I'm also in this group!) to give slight idea about love! So in short everyone! Highly recommended for everyone! If someone wants to watch a Korean show and wants to watch only one then I'd recommend Alone in Love. I'd easily sideline my previous joint #1 Salaryman and Evasive Inquiry Agency!
Who should avoid this?
-Those who want adrenaline rush in everything. -Those who want to live in fantasy. -Those who want to watch mushy, kiddo's, 'Love @ 1st sight', "I love you I love you too!"/"I can't live without you " kind of romance.
