So I've heard about K-dramas for years, but only started trying them (and J-shows) recently because of their availability on streaming services. I loved Train to Busan and mostly enjoyed the Along with The Gods movies.
I got into the last TV series I binged, but as I neared the last third, I found myself fast forwarding and wishing it would just stop - it was SO melodramatic. I'd come so far, though, that I just wanted to see the end. Romance is a Bonus Book isn't melodramatic - it's funny, sweet and evenly-paced. I'm enjoying it unfold as it is and I haven't gotten antsy.
I genuinely laugh out loud and simultaneously love/hate that the two leads aren't together. I want them together, but drawing it out just makes it all the more enjoyable.
I won't ask for more than this in a show, no matter the nationality. It's the new reality of on-demand, and it works.
