“My Roommate Is A Gumiho” episode 16 review- final thoughts
“My Roommate Is A Gumiho” has been a fun cute drama, for the most part, there was always this nagging and pressing matter of whether Woo Yeo will become human or not, but for the most part, it was a cute drama that didn’t take itself too seriously.
I have issues with the script and even the finale, in certain areas, it feels like it’s done sloppily without much consideration for basic logic but since the drama didn’t take itself seriously either, I don’t know why I should. If it had taken itself too seriously, my tone would be different.
Did “My Roommate Is A Gumiho” deserve to be 16 episodes? That depends on the person you’re asking, I don’t think it did, but I don’t think most of whats out right now should be 16 episodes either. For those who had fun watching the drama, it was all they could ask for.
The cast chemistry is cute and I must commend the screenwriters for writing male and female friendships like that. In kdramas, you don’t see it often portrayed so nicely in such areas where men and women could have compassion for each other but it’s not because they’re in love. The overall feel of the drama was cute and the friendships truly shined. I also liked how the first male lead wasn’t toxic or controlling but rather cool and responsible. I’m sick of the trope of the wounded and aggressive male lead who thinks he can bully the female lead until he falls for her.
In the grand scheme of things, “My Roommate Is A Gumiho” is not that special in my opinion. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t stand out to me that much either, the cast does elevate the drama but without them, this might’ve not been a fun watch. When comparing it to the other dramas that came out this year, it doesn’t have anything that sets it apart in terms of production or plot.
The chemistry between Hyeri and Jang Ki Yong truly carried the drama. Hyeri’s acting is still highly debatable but in this case, she suits her character. Jang Ki Yong improved a lot and truly shined here, we’ll be seeing him soon with Song Hye Kyo, can’t wait for that. His face is enough to make anyone stick around, and for those who do because of it, I don’t honestly blame them.
The rest of the cast was good, we have some rising talents that I think we’ll be seeing more of in the future.
So what did you guys think of “My Roommate Is A Gumiho” Ending? Did you like it?
