“Our Blues” episode 20 review
“Our Blues” has definitely been a fun drama. I had a good time watching it, a lot more than I had expected going in. I know some people were a bit let down or disappointed but personally, I really appreciate the drama.
I appreciate how it tastefully tackled so many societal issues without sounding too preachy or pretentious. Screenwriters No Hee Kyung definitely did well this time. This might be my 2nd favorite drama by her. “Its okay that love” still holds a special place in my heart and is no.1 but this drama is also so well written. I liked the way the characters were written and found she actually did her best to give each and every single one of them the depth they deserved.
Its a slow-paced well-made kdrama. Personally speaking, this is one of the best-written kdramas of 2022. The year has been lackluster so I am glad we have such a gem. I think its a bit underrated among international kdrama fans. I expected more buzz but I get why it didn’t happen. I think expectations for some didn’t match the reality.
All of the cast of “Our Blues” did so well, I am proud of all of you.
