My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
That’s shocking. I didn’t expect it to be this low…. Hope it picks up next week.
Personally speaking, I enjoyed “Our Beloved Summer” premiere. I thought it was a cute drama, a bit slow, but its a cute drama. Given the premise, that is to be expected. However, with the hype SBS has been attempting to generate surrounding this drama, I expected a better start, there is a lot of hope it picks up so I hope it does.
“Our Beloved Summer” premiere surprised me with a rather more mature take on the romance tropes of such plots, thus far. A review will come out shortly so keep your eyes on the blog.
