151. Divorce Lawyer in Love 이혼변호사는 연애중 (2015) Korean

Jo Yeo Jeong, Yeon Woo Jin, Shim Hyung Tak, Wang Ji Won

Drama Rating: 3/10     Neck Score: A

All I can say is that I am glad it's over.  The show started out meh and ended blech.  A classic example of why shows should never be extended.  The only thing that kept if going was Yeon Woo Jin and Shim Hyung Tak, because they were both amazing.  Yeon Woo Jin just knows how do do cute, and Shim Hyung Tak is sexy and hilarious.  I could never connect with Cheok Hee (Jo Yeo Jong) and only came to tolerate her.  I think that was 50% writing and 50% that actress not being amazing.  The writing was what really bothered me.  If she's going to be a crazy bitca lawyer main lead, cool, but she was just a crazy, inconsistent, random, weird, and frustrating main lead.  Even by the end I didn't know who she was or had any way to connect with her as a character.  The writing was that bad.  The show was super draggy and absolutely stupid in both the subplots as well as the main plot.  Also, the love/hate relationship was probably the worst I've ever seen.  It made no sense.  In fact the entire show made no sense.  To the end I think I still like Wang Ji Won's second female lead, Soo Ah, better and that's saying a lot because she was lame at times too.  But really as a bitca she wasn't even anything at all.  All she did was lie once, feel super guilty about it, and then cry because it wasn't fair that she couldn't win him.  The mom was a bigger bitca than she was, with her manipulative ways.  Anyways, our male leads were amazing enough to keep some interest there, but really the show was so bad at the end that we were constantly just playing with our phones instead of paying attention.  The last episode seemed like it would never end, so... yay!  It's over!
