I’m still unable to formulate a reaction to the love line in fantasy tvN drama Hwayugi (A Korean Odyssey). For Lee Seung Gi‘s recent dramas it’s always been so clear to me how I felt – insane love for the OTP in A King 2 Hearts, the female lead Suzy‘s wooden acting ruining the romantic connection in Gu Family Book, and the sheer annoying personality of the female lead in You’re All Surrounded tanking the chemistry and connection.
None of that is present in Hwayugi as I like Oh Yeon Seo‘s Jin Seon Mi’s personality, the acting is on point, and yet I’m not invested in the romance. Or maybe I don’t buy how Oh Gong can actually fall in love with Seon Mi while wearing the bracelet, not that he can’t love her but the magic elements isn’t fleshed out enough. With that said, Lee Seung Gi is killing it as Oh Gong and seeing the upcoming kiss and romantic scene stills between the OTP still makes me eager to watch how it unfolds this weekend.
