With yesterday being Thanksgiving here in the States, it’s safe to say the holiday season is fully upon us. If you’re anything like me, that means from now until the end of the year, life is going to be pretty crazy. With so much going on, it’s hard to find time to sit down and marathon an entire drama, which is why this week, I’m recommending another mini web drama, Love Cells.
Originally airing on Naver TVCast in November, 2014, Love Cells, is the story of a jobless, pathetic, twenty-something by the name of Ma Dae Choong (Park Sun Ho) whose cat, Nebi (Kim Yoo Jung), is magically transformed into a “love cell,” a sort of mystical matchmaker, if you will. With only a month left before Dae Choong is doomed to the life of a bachelor forever, Nebi must transform him into the leading man of his own romantic story by helping him win the heart of the beautiful idol, Seo Rin (Nam Ji Hyun). It’s certainly not an easy job but Nebi never gives up, especially not when her life’s on the line!
You know, I’ve probably already said too much about this drama, just in that short little recap, so I’m not going to say a whole lot more. (Thus the problem or reviewing mini-dramas, I suppose.) What I will say is that this drama is super silly but it’s also pretty darn cute. Dae Choong is a likeable enough fellow and Nebi is adorable. The drama is based on a webtoon so you can imagine things are pretty unrealistic (because the magic love cell cat wasn’t enough of a tip-off…) but sometimes you just need a little silly in your life. The cameos in this drama are fantastic. I was rolling on the floor during some of them (you’ll know which ones without me saying anything) while others shocked the snot out of me, in a good way, of course. (Again, you’ll know what I’m talking about as soon as this person steps into the shot.)
I rather enjoyed this drama, silliness and all. I just wasn’t a fan of the ending. Not because it was a bad ending, by any means. It was actually what I wanted… Sort of. I can’t say anything without giving it away so you’re just going to have to watch it and then come back and talk to me. Of course if you’ve already watched this one, you could go ahead and tell me what you thought of it in the comments below!
