It’s funny how a rom-com like Crash Course in Romance is actually more impactful as an indictment of South Korea’s oppressive educational system and obsessively controlling parents participating in it. The drama hit a new ratings high of 14.296% and can probably break 15% or more next week with the finale but it’s not going to be one of those dramas I feel the urge the re-watch. Leads Jeon Do Yeon and Jung Kyung Ho made the drama a lot more enjoyable to watch and the frustrating Moms and the Big Bad subplot added the right amounts of tension and danger to elevate the stakes. But the air has been let out of the tires as we know everything will be fine and I kinda don’t even need to see how that’s arrived at next week in the final two episodes. I’m just glad good decent people will have earned their good endings.
