Spring Waltz

While this drama was not quite up my alley as far as what I usually enjoy in a drama, for a more serious soap operaey drama it wasn’t so bad.  I figured I needed to watch at least one of the Endless Love dramas since they are revered as kdrama classics, and this one came highly recommended by a fellow blogger.  It was very over dramatic in some parts and the acting and dialouge were kind of subpar (Well let’s face it, Daniel Henney was terrible, but always beautiful to look at 🙂 ), but the overall plot was interesting enough and the two lead actors were both easy on the eyes.  It had a really sweet and happy ending, which is always nice.  As characteristic of the Endless Love series, nature played a huge part in the scenery, and that part of the drama was truly beautiful.  It also had lovely music, both instrumental and vocal.  They were trying to convey a Spring feeling through the set, clothing, scenery, music, etc., so all of the sets were very brightly painted and the clothes were like blindingly neon.  It was like the Easter Bunny threw up all over the place after taking acid, and I think they way overdid it with the colors.  And honestly, when I think of Spring I think of vibrant, but more natural pastel colors, not the crazy in your face neon stuff they had going on.  I don’t really have too much to say on this drama because although it was a heartfelt, pleasant story overall, and much more tolerable than I imagine the other Endless Love dramas would be, it did not rock my socks off, and it was just okay for me.  So in conclusion, I am going to give it a 3 out of 5, worth watching, but not world changing.

  1. Teehee…sorry to recommend something you didn’t really like =X We do have similar taste in dramas, but clearly I’m alone in suffering from a hunger for crazy over-the-top-ness

    • I didn’t dislike it, it just didn’t rock my world that’s all, but that’s okay, not every drama is going to. You are not alone in that though lol, a lot of people love the over the top dramas.
