Episode 15 of Crash Course in Romance was such a frustrating watch but absolutely necessary in order to finish this drama tomorrow and provide a complete opinion. That the ratings went up again to an astonishing 15.507% which may be the highest rom-com on cable ratings ever is equally mind boggling because at this point the drama is neither romance nor comedy. It’s a trifecta of bad parent decisions – smart people doing stupid things – and random shoehorned side plots. Top it off with a terrible resolution on the serial killer subplot where the Big Bad neither gets the punishment he deserves nor catharsis for his own messed up mental trauma just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I hated the most the return of Hae Yi’s real mom who is Heung Seon’s older sister and nobody has slapped her upside the head for just dumping a kid back home and then swanning back years later and resumes being a parasite. Sure it’s easy to write caricature bad parents but goodness can the sane people react in ways other than being doormats. Overall it’s still a good thing this drama has mega ratings but wish the writing matched up to the reception.
