Playful Kiss is a warm, bubbly drama about falling in love and growing up along the way. Oh Ha-ni, nicknamed "Noah's snail" by her father and friends for her ability to keep trying even though she isn't the brightest in the bunch, has one goal in mind: to capture the heart of school genius, Baek Seung-jo. After harboring an all-consuming crush for years, she finally gets up the courage to give him a letter confessing her feelings. Seung-jo, an icy perfectionist, coldly rejects her. When Ha-ni's house is destroyed by an earthquake, she and her father move in with an old family friend - none other than Seung-jo's father. Now, Ha-ni and Seung-jo must deal with the awkwardness of living under the same roof. Can one determined, warm-hearted high school girl melt the heart of this closed-off genius? Written by Ha Ni

Never knew I would enjoy Asian romantic comedies so much!!
17 October 2016 | by Mustang-17See all my reviews

Currently on Netflix (2016) this series is known as "Playful Kiss" for US viewers. I've seen the story before titled "Mischievous Kiss: Season 1 and Season 2," done by the Japanese. That series was undoubtedly influenced by this South Korean version, which was done first.

At any rate, I really enjoyed both versions. There are very slight differences but the core story remains the same: girl likes boy who could not care less about her... until events unfold that give her small bits of hope, like crumbs left on the ground to follow a path. It's how the story unfolds that draws us in. Many times I laughed out loud. Often I had a silly grin on my face. There were times I couldn't stop the watery eyes. I was rooting for Oh Ha Ni all the way - her character was just so adorable and spirited, and good. Oh, and she daydreams!

Anyone who enjoys love stories, no matter the culture, should enjoy this. I'm English-Irish American and I did! And I plan to watch it again. I could give spoilers, but why do that when one can just watch it to see if they like it? Don't look for perfection - look for the story, the intent - that's were the beauty is in "Mischievous Kiss" (2010).
