Storyline

Claire Duncan (Liv Hewson), a cute if slightly nerdy 20-year old college student, is obsessed with Korean drama. While most co-eds are out partying, she's glued to the screen watching her favorite K-Drama actor, Joon Park (Sean Dulake), in 'Taste of Love.' Dreamy, charming, and downright adorable, Joon Park is more than Claire's fantasy. He's her knight in shining armor, the man of her dreams. Claire's waking days, sadly, are not nearly as thrilling as the ones depicted in the K-Drama world. Between work and school, her only escape is the glamour and excitement of 'Taste of Love' and Joon Park's intoxicating charm and good looks. Like a girl lost in love, Claire spends almost every second wishing he would walk through the doors and sweep her off her feet. Her world, however, is turned upside down when, through a twist of fate and a touch of magic, she finds herself sucked into her smartphone and transported inside the world of her favorite K-Drama. Stuck inside Dramaworld, Claire ...

Poorly Written and Acted but a Great Concept
25 June 2016 | by zegraphicsSee all my reviews

Unfortunately the cameos and Justin Choi are the only things worth watching in this short series. The concept sparkles but there is no character development. We're not given any reasons to connect with the main characters or to care about what happens to them. The lead Claire is paper-thin. She has zero depth. The leading male Joon was wooden. Both leads struggled with their acting. Their portrayals either felt forced, flat, or awkward throughout the series. And their love-line never took off.

Dramaworld also tries to spoof the genre but none of the things fans love about K- dramas are present beyond shallow acknowledgment that the tropes do, in fact, exist. The tropes are used more like, "Look a cake. Cakes are funny. Everyone loves cakes because they have eggs, and flour, and sugar, and milk…" That's about as much insight as Dramaworld gives into K-drama and its fandom. It lays out all the tropes and then points at them while saying, "Tee hee! Isn't this funny. It has umbrella scenes, and shower scenes, and super sweet heroines, and jerky heroes, and piggyback rides, and mean moms…" And we, the audience, are left to wonder "yeah, and…?" Dramaworld feels like a giant commercial instead of a series we're meant to connect with. I hope Viki changes the writing and directing team and tries again with better actors and a smarter script.
