May Be Hard for Teens to Follow, But Stunning
That probably sounds harsh, but I think this plot is a bit nuanced for those simply looking for a love story where the pretty heartthrob gets the girl. Which is tricky, because a show about relatively far fetched tech used by youth to find love is a plotline built pretty much for teens.
I should point out that I was also disappointed in her final life choices and really would have liked the second season to turn out differently. However once the whole story is told it is pretty spot on. And it's a remarkably beautiful journey.
A truly stunning drama and even though it took watching till the end to completely love it, it turned out to be in my top 5 for sure. It avoids most of the typical kdrama pitfalls and actually wraps up every potential loose end, which some of them fail to do. Beautiful storytelling but also gorgeous cinematic structure and locations, a fantastic group of secondary threads and even multiple mediums used effectively.
Really happy with the ENTIRE cast and crew. Complex, well thought out characters, (every single one of them, even those who didn't need to be). They may not make sense to youth who haven't experienced a lot of what the story covers (there are some pretty serious topics woven in) and only see the story at face value. Their choices will seem unrealistic at times. But anyone who has been close to some of these situations and watched them play out will know that in fact this is very true to each character. And in the end, although her choices were maybe not the popular ones, the female lead's actions are both accurate and they paint a stunningly beautiful piece of art.
