Where to Watch My Heart Twinkle Twinkle
Cast & Credits
This drama got criticised a lot. That a lot of people would just not give it a chance. But believe me, if you're a fan of (( melodramas )) or (( romantic )) ones. This is one of the best.
This drama got one of the best story lines. It's not about a romance between chicken restaurants owners, or competitors, or whatever you read from the plot. One thing to say, ITS NOT. This drama is really deep, the romance is deep, different than what you usually watch. It was touching. I won't say they got chemistry or something like that, no it was TOUCHING. A weird one that you won't even understand unless you keep watching.
Bae Su Bin: If you think you got no reason to watch this, then give Su Bin a one chance to create this reason. Watch one episode and you'll have the reason to continue watching. I watched 26 episodes switching from (I like you), to (I dislike you). Then I finished up watching this drama not knowing, is he a good guy, or bad. I don't even know if I like him or dislike him(drama). But that's not a negative thing, because that's what he is in the drama, a bad guy..and a good one. You know what that means? His acting was DAEBAK, I never knew he was this good.
Jang Shin Young: sometimes got me confused, but you'll get to know her acting style later on. She did really well on the last episodes.
Rest of cast: They did pretty well.
The music was good, nothing that grabbed my attention, but fitted the scenes.
HOW I RATED THIS:
First episodes: 7.5-8
Last episodes: 8-8.5
Final episode: 10
TO SUM THIS UP:
- Watch it! Do not hesitate. You won't regret it. Listen to me, and WATCH IT!
Because of this, each of them begin to go their own way and try to make do with what they have.
The genres for this are mainly Makjang, Melodrama, Family, and yes, Romance.
You won't find any Comedy in this but, you certainly will find some lovey-dovey couples.
Acting/Cast - With the romance piece, we get to meet one of the best characters ever created in the history of Makjang: Cheon Woon Tak. You can't define this character by good or bad.
His personality has polar opposite, rapid changes back and forth. You always end up thinking you understand him and than the writer does a full 180 with the character and you're oh so, wrong.
Of course, you wouldn't be able to have such a weird, cool character if there wasn't an actor who fit the bill. Bae Su Bin was the miracle worker here. I've always been a long time fan of Bae Su Bin but, this time around, he really made me do a double take. For that alone, I gave the acting a solid 10.
Jang Shin Young was marvelous too. Although, her character had a simple view on life and she sometimes was overshadowed by the character of Cheon Woon Tak, we always ended up cheering her on at the end of the day.
Lee Tae Im had to leave the show more than half-way through because of health issues or that scandal? Anyway, one of the two but, it didn't make that much of a difference. Personally, I felt her character to be very bland or as I would say, salty. You keep eating salt; you start yearning for water.
Nam Bo Ra was a cutie. I hope to see more of this actress very soon. When she played her younger role she kinda annoyed me but, when she gets older, she seems to mature as an actress and get comfortable in her role.
Lee Pil Mo has always been good. I've loved the fellow since "Emergency Couple"
The man needs a lead role. Simple as that.
The rest of the cast were amazing. No complaints whatsoever! A special shout-out to Ha Jae Sook. Who used the most out of her screen-time and managed to steal the audiences heart if only for a quick second.
Music - Nothing special. You won't be searching for the OST and it's just not memorable.
Rewatch - It's one of those watch it once and that's it type of dramas. It's worthy of a watch, just not a rewatch.
Overall - Good melodrama. It kept being cut shorter and shorter so it kinda was cursed with a short ending. They made the most of it though and I don't regret watching it. It can be far-fetched sometimes but, it is entertaining and very binge-worthy.
