83. Cunning, Single Lady 앙큼한 돌싱녀 (2014) Korean

Lee Min Jung, Joo Sang Wook, Kin Gyu Ri, Seo Kang Joon

Drama Rating: 7/10     Neck Score: A

Like I said in the Emergency Couple Review, this one was the much better done divorced couple getting back together.  Also, I am now very in love with Joo Sang Wook.  It was the promos of him being a complete nerd that made me want to watch it.  Also, the humor was way better.  They knew how to keep it classy, even when they were being hilariously horrible to each other.  Plus her giving him a rash from the flowers she knows he allergic to leads to him shirtless, so yeah, keeping it classy (winky face).  They got married young when he was a student and then when he quit his stable job to start his own company and times got too hard, they ended up breaking up.  Then, when she finds out his company is now successful, she plots revenge since rather than acknowledging her help, he insults her.  What's great about this is that they are both at fault and horrible to each other, and both so completely still in love with each other, that it builds well.  It's also a good blend of emotional drama and hilarious comedy.  However there are some episodes that are hard to watch.  Episode 14 I think.  The other peeps, who happen to be brother and sister, both go so completely cray cray and evil that I couldn't stand it and had to force myself through that episode.  Thank goodness it was just one episode, because everyone is pretty honest in this show, sometimes anyways, that even when dumb things like noble idiocy are attempted, they don't work.  This show also does a much better job of showing her being in love with him even though she is resisting, so that it's not like a complete 180 change when she suddenly wants him back, because it's not suddenly.  They literally want each other back from day 1, but just don't know it yet, because they haven't realized it.  The ending was so much better too.  I thought it was pretty refreshing, since the other dramas I was watching at the time both ended lamely.  Also, best confession ever:  "I've got plastic flower" (aka love sickness).
