One of the early 2021 arrivals on my radar is KBS drama Hello? It’s Me!, complete with the question mark and the exclamation in its title. Sadly it’s forty years too late for Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret type teen girl puberty introspection though there is a teen girl here and my premonition is that she’s going to steal the show. The drama is about a thirty-something ordinary rather bumbling Choi Kang Hee who somehow brings forth her 17 year old confident sassy past self played by Lee Re who is obviously dismayed and frustrated to see that 20 years later her life has gone downhill from when there was once so much potential. I’m sure there will be viewers who can relate but I firmly believe it’s never too late to make a change and try to be better. I rarely like a Choi Kang Hee drama enough to watch it through other than Protect the Boss but this one gives me the same vibes plus the promos are great so I’m definitely checking it out come February 17th.
