Newly arrived tvN drama You are My Spring is……interesting to say the least. I watched episode 1 and can’t for the life of me decide if I like it or dislike it. If it wasn’t for leads Seo Hyun Jin and Kim Dong Wook both of whom I love, I probably would lean towards dislike but it’s not because the drama is poorly written, acted, or directed. So far I think the latter two are there it’s the writing I’m confused about, and the last time I had this confusion it was with When the Camellia Blooms which ended up a huge ratings and critically acclaimed hit. This drama also reminds me of It’s Okay to Not be Okay with the dark scenes and interjected ominous moods along with the traumatized children backstory and the fairy tale books. Thankfully it doesn’t feel pretentious and empty like its predecessor Doom at Your Service and I was riveted to the kid portion with the abused mom and how she took every modern sanitized fairy tale and made it Grimm. But the adult portion felt like I was dropped into the middle of a movie so I just tried to take in every scene rather than try to make sense in the moment because my sense is that this drama has a lot more up its sleeve and I think both leads are really savvy project pickers so I’m willing to get on the ride with them.
